  • Donald Trump: We're going to 'open up' libel laws

    Donald Trump said on Friday he plans to change libel laws in the United States so that he can have an easier time suing news organizations. During a rally in Fort Worth, Texas, Trump began his usual tirade against newspapers such as The New York Times and The Washington Post, saying they're "losing money" and are "dishonest." The Republican presidential candidate then took a different turn, suggesting that when he's president they'll "have problems." "One of the things I'm going to do if I win, and I hope we do and we're certainly leading. I'm going to open up our...

    On Thursday, CEO Brendan Eich of Mozilla was forced out of his job thanks to his $1,000 donation to the Proposition 8 pro-traditional marriage effort in California in 2008. At that point, he held the exact same position as Barack Obama on traditional marriage. Now, that position has soured in the nostrils of the militant left, which seeks to ruin the lives of those with whom it disagrees. ~~snip~~ Google Adsense Shuts Down WorldNetDaily.

    Free Dominion, one of the arch-foes of the Canadian Gun Registry, has been shut down. The conservative website, Free Dominion, has shut down after a long legal battle with censorship champion lawyer Richard Warman.  Warman gained notoriety for his attacks on conservative sites by using the "hate speech" law in Canada (the Canadian Human Rights Commission) to censor speech he disagreed with.   He was essentially the only person using the law and the process.  The CHRC became his personal tool of repression.  He had considerable success, though the CHRC has since been reformed by parliament as a result....

    Conservative website shuttered after libel ruling Ottawa lawyer Richard Warman wins long-running legal battle By Andrew Duffy, OTTAWA CITIZEN January 28, 2014 OTTAWA — The online political forum, Free Dominion, has shut down after a wholesale defeat in a libel case brought by Ottawa human rights lawyer Richard Warman. A jury concluded that Warman was maliciously defamed by four commentators on Free Dominion, a website that bills itself as “the voice of principled conservatism.” Warman has been awarded more than $127,000 in general damages, aggravated damages, punitive damages and court costs because of 41 defamatory statements published on the conservative...

    The Moderate Separatist ^ | January 6, 2011 | Leigh Patrick Sullivan
    Ten years ago today saw the creation of what I consider perhaps the most important online web forum in Canada. January 6th, 2001 saw the launch of The Voice of Principled Conservatism - Free Dominion. At the time, our nation was mired in a seemingly endless reign of Jean Chretien's majority Liberal government. The national media gave us a choice between the far-left (CBC) and the slightly left (CTV) as far as news and political commentary. We were stuck in perpetual political correctness and left-wing dogma run amok. The internet was no different. For Canadians on the political right, places...

    Ottawa Citizen via Free Dominion ^ | April 12, 2010 | Don Butler
    In a case with implications for online privacy and free expression, a panel of Ottawa judges is considering whether websites named in libel actions should be required to identify people who post anonymous defamatory comments. Their decision could chill whistleblowers and others who use pseudonyms to post controversial comments, say civil libertarians. And, they maintain, if the judges support unmasking anonymous posters, that could erode their privacy by allowing others to piece together vast amounts of personal information. The case arises from a 2007 defamation suit filed by Ottawa lawyer Richard Warman, who is reviled by the far right for...

    OTTAWA, April 1, 2008 ( - Richard Warman, a homosexual activist who has worked with the homosexual activist group EGALE, has been caught having written a racist screed against one of his most prominent enemies - the Canadian Senator best known for fighting against homosexual 'marriage' - Anne Cools.  Of course Warman claims he was simply posing as a racist in writing his post in order to goad self proclaimed white supremacist Marc Lemire into incriminating himself. However, famed conservative columnist Mark Steyn points out in one of his latest writings on the debacle at the Canadian Human Rights...
