    Some version of justice has finally been served for Gibson’s Bakery in Oberlin, Ohio, but it’s clear where the power lies in this country.After six years, justice — or some version of it — has finally been served for Gibson’s Bakery in Oberlin, Ohio. After having its name dragged through the mud for alleged racism because it tried to hold an admitted shoplifter accountable for his crime, the almost 140-year-old family business last week received a $36.6 million settlement from a defamation suit it filed against Oberlin College in 2017. The case was appealed all the way to the Ohio...

    CNN is asking a judge in Florida to toss a lawsuit filed by former President Trump against the network earlier this fall on First Amendment grounds. The cable news network and Trump’s lawyers have battled in court in recent weeks over the former president’s lawsuit accusing CNN of defamation over its coverage of his 2020 election claims. In the lawsuit filed in October, Trump’s attorneys argued CNN “has sought to use its massive influence — purportedly as a ‘trusted’ news source — to defame the Plaintiff in the minds of its viewers and readers for the purpose of defeating him...

  • NJ teacher falsely accused of removing student’s hijab sues Muslim Olympian and Hamas-linked CAIR for defamation

    Jihad Watch ^ | 10/19/22 | Robert Spencer
    No one should ever have taken this story seriously in the first place. But it fit the Left’s picture of reality so well, it couldn’t be resisted. The idea that there would be a second-grade teacher in any school in the country in 2022 who would feel free to rip off a Muslim student’s hijab simply doesn’t accord with the real world. But in the Left’s world, we’re not living in 2022 at all, or if we are, it is a nightmare version of 1955, with “white supremacists” running rampant, terrorizing defenseless People of Color whose just grievances are laughed...

    Andrew Napolitano hammers judge who declared commentator's opinions 'non-opinions' "Congress shall make no law abridging ... the freedom of speech." – First Amendment to the Constitution The iconic language of the First Amendment can be recited by schoolchildren, yet it is ignored by judges in Connecticut when the speech has been uttered by Alex Jones. Since the modern interpretations of the First Amendment began in the late 1960s, opinions on matters of public interest have been protected speech, so long as some reasons for the opinions were articulated. The reasons can be inaccurate, and the opinions can be wild, bizarre...

    Alex Jones of InfoWars reacted to the $965 million he has been ordered to pay to Sandy Hook families. "They think they can break your will, they can't break your will," said Jones before the announcement. "They make these lies with all this money we've got. It's all just delusional leftist crap. Like that two men can have a baby. The same cult that wants to cut your son's balls off," said Jones. Upon the announcement that Jones owed plaintiff Robbie Parker $120 million, Jones pumped his fist and yelled, "Yeah! Woo!" Jones noted that he is paying money to...

    Former US President Donald Trump sued CNN for defamation on Monday, seeking $475 million in punitive damages and claiming that the network had carried out a "campaign of libel and slander" against him, Reuters reported. Trump claims in his lawsuit, filed in US District Court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, that the network had used its influence as a leading news organization to defeat him politically. He further says in the lawsuit that CNN used such defamatory labels against him as "racist," "Russian lackey," "insurrectionist" and "Hitler." CNN declined to comment on the case. .....

    America’s corporate press is out of control. It claims to be an institution essential to successful self-government—and it would in fact be so, if it did its job responsibly. But all too often the American press seeks not to facilitate democratic deliberation by informing the voters but instead to shape political outcomes by dealing in hysteria and misinformation. More specifically, the corporate media routinely seeks to pull the nation’s politics leftward by using defamation to render prominent figures on the right odious to the public. The case of Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz is only the most recent example.

    A federal appeals court in New York on Tuesday handed former President Trump a partial victory in a defamation lawsuit brought by a woman who accused Trump of raping her in the 1990s, with the court ruling that presidents are covered by a federal law that gives broad legal immunity to government employees. A divided three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit said a lower court erred when it ruled that Trump’s accuser, E. Jean Carroll, could sue Trump personally for the allegedly defamatory statements he made about her during his presidency.

    I went to my nearest Cabela's this week to do a little shopping. When I entered the store I noticed a sign at the service counter that essentially said guns entering the store must be registered at the counter. I asked if that was all guns and was told yes. I took out my conceal carry and put it on the country. Thee attendant asked me if the gun had bullets in it (DUH!). I said yes. He then told me I had to take the gun to the gun sales and have them unload it and then bring it...

    Hopefully the long, hard road Gibson’s Bakery has traveled in its fight with Oberlin College has come to an end. The Ohio Supreme Court just refused to accept jurisdiction over Oberlin College’s appeal (the Court also refused to hear the Gibsons’ appeal seeking to reinstate the full punitive damages award). It was a 4-3 decision, and it means the Gibsons now can collect approximately $36 million.

    Turning Point USA issued a scathing cease-and-desist letter to ABC News on Tuesday, calling for the Disney-owned company to “retract the defamatory statements” made earlier this week on “The View” or face legal action. “The false statements of fact intentionally made during The View’s July 25th segment were unquestionably harmful to TPUSA’s reputation and brought the organization and its student affiliates into disrepute with the public, potential donors, and current and future business partners, posing a significant financial loss to the organization,” the letter said.
