Judge Dismisses Nick Sandmann Lawsuit After First Round of Motions, Saying Just That It Was An "Opinion" That Sandmann Was a Racist And so the Washington Post Cannot Be Liable for Publishing His Lies

And the Washington Post, furthermore, wasn't even required to view a 20 minute video which would have proven that Chief Lieawatha was lying.

It's an "opinion" -- publish all the lies you want without any fact-checking required to maintain your immunity to lawsuit.


He didn't say that last part, but that's what the judge must have found when he typed up this very short dismissal order which did not mention that simple viewing of the full video, available to everyone, and only 20 minutes long, would have shown the Post that they were publishing a lie, but apparently they don't have to even bother watching a 20 minute video as the most minor of fact-checking before slandering a child.

Let me just say that my experience in the federal courts, before an Obama appointee, by the way, also fighting for the right for free speech, and with the additional consideration that anonymous speech was long-recognized as a core part of the First Amendment, was not met with the same eagerness to dismiss,

In my case, a conservative being sued by a leftist instead of a liberal billion dollar corporation being sued by a presumably-conservative child, the court really wanted to go through two and a half years of very expensive motions and orders and really wanted to make sure that the leftist had not had any avenues of justice closed off to him prematurely.

In my case, the right of the press to report freely without being overly fearful of lawsuits was.... how do I put this? Not even on the docket, as they say.

Let me just point out that I have been very, very fearful about what I write since that lawsuit, and have in fact been very, very inhibited in seeking and writing what I believe to be the truth.

See, but that doesn't matter; I'm a conservative. I should be fearful. My rights to free speech must take not just second place but possibly seventh or eight place to anyone who claims to have been harmed by my speech.

But the Washington Post is a leftwing billion dollar media corporation, you see. Its free speech rights are ABSOLUTELY PARAMOUNT, and greater in fact than that of a child to not be defamed in national media, and in fact so ABSOLUTE is this right of a leftwing corporation to destroy people that it must not be encumbered even by the requirement of having to watch a 20 minute video, available to everyone on the internet, before rushing out with a defamatory lie about a child.

See, it's just "opinion."

My case? Not opinion and even if it was, so what? It was BAD OPINION.

So yeah, this is me, having gone through an emotional hell for 2 1/2 years and around $40,000 in personal expenses telling you that the yes, the system is rigged against you, and yes, you are second class citizens, and you need to decide if you're willing to tolerate that situation and for how long.

This is intolerable.

Sorry to be so dramatic. You have no idea the anger I'm feeling right now.

This will be my last real post for a while. I'm shaking with rage.

I have seen the future of what they plan for you. When I speak about dual classes of citizenship, I am not being rhetorical. I mean it. I've seen it.

And this is just one more government finding that there are two classes of citizens, and they have wildly, extravagantly different rights and responsibilities.

The Rule of Law Has Been Stolen From You and Replaced With Ruthless Will-to-Power Marxism:

>>>As that lawyer for the Newspaper said in the Paul Newman movie "absence of malice" so they have no case.

Even the absence of malice standard can be met if you knew it was untrue or if you published with reckless indifference to whether it was true or not.

Given that there was a 20 minute video, available when they printed, that showed Phillips to be a liar, and they either didn't bother watching that or did watch it and then reported the lie anyway, they do in fact have legal malice here.

That's why this judge claimed, bizarrely, that it was an "opinion." The Washington Post loses, slam-dunk, on any defamation charge.

So the only possibility to vindicate the Washington Post is to claim the statement is not even capable of being defamatory, because it was mere opinion.

Now, here's the Fact/Opinion distinction: A fact is either true or not true. It can be proven true or false.

An opinion is, well, pure opinion. It's like if I call you ugly -- well, there's no way to say you're definitely not ugly. Even if 90% of the public said that you were in the to 10% of good-looking people, I could find that your features just didn't appeal to me and say you're ugly, and you can't sue me for that.

This is the important thing: You cannot just say "Well it's my opinion that you cheat on your wife" and then claim "it was just an opinion" in court.

Because your opinion made a statement about a fact that could be true or could be false, and you said it was true. True, you added in "In my opinion," but if all it took to be immune to lawsuit was to say "in my opinion," then we'd have no defamation law at all.

Let's face it, any contested fact could be said to just be an opinion.

If I say someone is an idiot, that's just an opinion. Maybe he's an idiot by my standard.

But if I say, "It's my opinion that he's an idiot because he failed his bar exam," well, that first part is opinion, but the second part is a factual claim -- even if the word "opinion" is in the sentence there, somewhere.

Now, in this case, Phillips lied. He said Sandmann blocked his forward movement and taunted him.

These are factual claims. He cannot escape liability for these factual misrepresentations just by saying, "Well, that's my opinion."

Otherwise I could just say "You cheat on your wife and beat your kids" -- factual statements, again -- and then, when hailed into court, I could just say, "Well that's my opinion."

And the judge says, Case dismissed.

Is that how it works? No, of course not. Again, if that's how it worked, there would be no claim of defamation at all, ever, anywhere.

Now, the Washington Post published this false claim of fact without checking its veracity. They are liable for it, then. If a newspaper publishes me saying of you, "You cheat on your wife and you beat your kids," the newspaper cannot evade responsbility for publishing the defamation just by saying, "Well, in the opinion of Ace, that's what we thought."

If it worked this way, again, there'd never be defamation.

But the judge is determined to dismiss the suit -- so he takes a black-letter statement of fact , which can either be proven true or false, and simply says, without any argument supporting his position, "It's opinion and therefore not libelous. Case dismissed."

But Sandmann did not block the Indian -- the Indian marched right into his face.

Sandmann did not "taunt" the Indian -- the Indian banged a drum in his face, taunting Sandmann.

The Indian made false, defamatory claims of fact, not opinion, and the Washington Post published these false, defamatory claims of fact, either knowing they were false or having been recklessly indifferent to their truth or falsity,

When you refuse to just watch a TWENTY MINUTE VIDEO before defaming a child -- what could define "reckless indifference to truth or falsity" than that?

This is black-letter law -- by which I mean, the sections written in BIG BLACK LETTERS to let you know that these are foundational points of the law upon which all other law is based.

And this judge just threw black-letter law out the window,

Because this was a contest between a leftwing billion-dollar corporation and a little conservative kid from an unfashionable little town, and it doesn't matter what the law says -- the real law is that leftists win, always and forever.

72 My fellow Morons: Be of good cheer!

Right now there are two possibilities.

The one we hope for is that the Trumpening will save our nation. The conspirators will be rounded up and Trump's judges will undo a century of progressive legislating from the bench.

There is a second option, which is that things will get worse. The election will get stolen, the guilty flourish and tyranny return.

But if that happens - and it may - we need to be relaxed about it. Calm. Serene.

Because sometimes these things have to happen this way. How many people in 1860 were looking forward to losing 700,000 people?

No one. But it had to happen.

Grit your teeth, buy ammo, know that there will be good days and bad days and never give up the faith that good can defeat evil.

Given that there was a 20 minute video, available when they printed, that showed Phillips to be a liar, and they either didn't bother watching that or did watch it and then reported the lie anyway, they do in fact have legal malice here.

That's why this judge claimed, bizarrely, that it was an "opinion."

It's not. This is a weird area of the law but believe me i know it now. You can't say "It's my opinion that this FACT is true." That is still a claim of FACT.

And we got the DNR files from an FOIA request. So I totally understand how pissed off you are and I could tell you even more bullshit that the state and county put us through. If you have any notion that the courts dispense justice, you couldn't be more wrong. They do what the bureaucrats tell them to do.

Anyways, state law regarding paper trails says that the muni has to exercise their right to it with "a reasonable time" ... what that means only lawyers know.

Anyways, we all thought it was cut and dry - the town would be fucked. But low and behold they go to court earlier this week and they found in the town's favor because the judge said "the land owners couldn't prove that they owned the property in question."

Wait. What? Thats the entire point of an easement. It's like these judges just fucking make up law as they go along.

sorry Jane, but I have been calling this one for a while.

The current Demos are complete losers and can't draw a hungry dog to a BBQ.

Michelle comes in to the Demo Convention after the 8th ballot and saves the day.

Then after she is elected, turns the White House over to Valarie Jarrett, who begins her 3rd term as president.

Michelle becomes the national public scold for 4 years, or until the civil war starts.




Sorry.

177 Grit your teeth, buy ammo, know that there will be good days and bad days and never give up the faith that good can defeat evil.

There is a reason good defeats evil - it has to do with the Yin and Yang nature of the Universe God created. Good people are mostly good - with an element of Evil which they keep under control. Evil people are mostly evil with an element of good which they try to hide.

When it comes to a fight it turns out that a good person's element of evil is way more intense and powerful when freed of control than anything an evil person has.

199 my personal story is different ... in a sense cost me more ... but that's in a town that made national news when after 6 years they decided to arrest/prosecute the guy that murdered his wife with the kids in the house (allegedly, but clearly). He was a former Asst DA, and like OJ, a former college football star. He didn't call 911, he called his boss with influence ... (he got off after a second trial)


One lawyer I talked with here ... prominent in our small town ... once told me "if you really want to get someone ... " he's my man. He was much less interested in the bad behavior of his old law partner, dropped me quickly when I pushed that malfeasance. ... But he'd gladly lawfare anyone (not in the club) for enough money.


So yeah, the good old boy club Trouble happens right here in river city, and that starts with T and that rhymes with P and that stands for ... our justice system is full of criminals protecting their buddies, and the populace is close to lynching en masse ... if we don't start prosecuting some of the mob.

You'd better come up with $10 now or take a plea.

And if you're found not guilty--or by some miracle, the charges are dismissed--not one single penalty of any sort will face the judge or the prosecutor.

And we have reached the point in this country where prosecutors openly bring political chargers.

There are numerous Short Wave radios available from low to high price range. If it is your first get a cheaper portable short wave to determine if DXing is something you like. If you like it you can go for more expenive ones. I have an ICOM which was $1,000 when new. But I have been DXing for decades. Started with an Ocean Hopper kit from Allied Radio. It was cheap. Make sure the portable has the ability to fine tune though. If you are planning on concentrating on Hams though it needs to have "side band" capability. Now the price range is going up.

Used to DX shortwave pirate stations when I was a kid in the 1980s. They usually used frequencies where they wouldn't interfere with ham operators. Back then the FCC would track down these people with listening stations they had around the country and mobile vehicles they could use to triangulate the signal and fine them, sometimes extensive fines of around $10,000 bucks for the guys who just had to be on for hours at a time every weekend. Most people moved their transmitters around and only broadcast sporadically.

Nowadays? Probably not much. Those listening stations are gone and the FCC probably has a lot of other stuff to worry about then some guy pumping out music or comedy bits with 500 watts. If you interfere with ham operators or actual licensed broadcasting stations, they will find you.

337 You can own a Yaesu FTDX5000 if you want. The barrier to entry is $3,600 plus tax, and you'll need an antenna and power supply. You just can't transmit without an operator's license.

344 249 ... Pug Mahon,

Any radio that gets the ham radio bands will do the job. NOTE: not all short wave radios get the ham frequencies. The radio doesn't have to be the latest or most expensive but it must have side band capability.

Since you won't be transmitting, that can keep the cost of a rig down. The key to listening is to have a good antenna. That's another topic.

Oh well shit, I was just making a point. You don't need a license to listen, just to transmit. And you certainly don't need a super wham-o-dyne radio just to listen.

Concentrate more on the antenna. You don't need a tower; if you have somewhere on your property that's a straight 40' shot, you can easily string a horizontal half-wave dipole for 20 meters with some speaker wire. If space is limited or if you're in an apartment, there are other options.

358 NYT v Sullivan wasn't the same issue. Here Covington wasn't a public figure until he was defamed. Sullivan was emphatic that a public figure couldn't be defamed unless actual malice.

The judge obviously got it wrong on purpose. He's trying to stake out a broader reach of NYT v Sullivan. He's a shill for the corporate interests.


Hopefully it will be remanded for a hearing on the merits by the appellate court.

I found on old radio shack scanner at a garage sale for $2 that picks up most bands, just needed an expedient antenna. Shop around, maybe you get lucky.

365 we lost 55 million in WW2 to defeat fascists/commies ... the dead were mostly normal people trying to get by, less than a million were the instigators. But now we have the commies right in our justice system, two tiered system that promises justice but always helps the connected scum commit crimes/frauds.


Much more efficient than war, to make a list and fight commies in the back yard this time, if they refuse to prosecute gross injustices. Or just be their beetch forever, let your kids service their arrogant/incompetent but rich kids. Or if your kids don't want to service them, they can bring in the third world to replace traditional America ... as seems to be the plan, at least at the DC level.

383 Saying the WaPo reported a liar's claims and got snookered is a valid defense. Pretending "no one could have known who Phillips was talking about, and he didn't possibly infer any negative actions on the person or people he was talking about, and no one from reading those articles could have reached a negative opinion about the person -- who we have no idea who he meant" is too cute by half and doesn't pass the smell test for me.

386 While I'm troubled, again, I'm nt surprised. There has been a tendency to favor Left over Right in almost every aspect of modern life. The fact the FBI "exonerated" Hillary, but lied to a secret court to obtain a warrant that subjected the nation and the POTUS to two + years os slander and innuendo without any of the intrusive "investigation" coming up with even one piece of evidence to verify their claims, gets explained away by the one tasked to head this sham as, "not my purview".

Never has it been more clear that an Article V Convention of States is necessary to try and right the ship of government without actual insurrection. The alternative is open conflict and should it come to that, there will be no winners and whatever arises from the ashes of that sad venture will not be the United States in any recognizable form. god help us all.
