This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind.

Oh will you look at that, fake news RE: Powell/Dominion lawsuit nonsense...

https://www.kraken-wood.com/pdf/HK.MEDIA.STATEMENT.3.23.21.pdf
https://www.sidneypowell.com/

At this point if you're dumb enough to believe anything the MSM says you probably should just shoot yourself and get it over with.
Oof. I suspected that was the angle. As usual, the media just can't help but lie.

Personally, I literally neither posted nor read anything from the mainstream media on this point. After Mistwell posted his quote, he provided no sources, so I went and looked up the court documents on my own -- as part of my own fact-checking. I posted the link to the court documents earlier, and cited exactly where I was quoting from.

Go read the court documents yourself. I posted exactly what was from there.

Full court documents:

Document 22, Attachment 2 - from Sidney Powell's lawyers:

https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.dcd.225699/gov.uscourts.dcd.225699.22.2_3.pdf

The section starts on page 38.

I am not sure if you're just an idiot, an asshole trolling, or both. Based on experience, both. JKhim provided the ENTIRE CONTEXT over the past couple days, not just links to articles, after I had posted a direct quote from the documents she filed, and not an article. The context is clear and correct. Nobody was posting anything fake. Unquestionable she is asserting the defense that no reasonable person would have believed what she said. The full context was actually worse than that simple statement. Again, not MSM, we pulled from the court documents she filed, directly, with full context.

Powell is basically saying under oath that only an idiot would have believed her words, and then not under oath she is saying "hey idiots, it must be the evil MSM misconstruing the documents I just filed under oath don't believe it!" and the idiots, who she just called idiots for ever believing her words, are again believing her words rather than the literal words she wrote under oath that only an idiot would believe her words.

But don't trust me or JKhim or Sidney or any other link, just fucking read the document she filed under oath yourself and see what you think she's saying. I don't think you can come away still claiming this is just the big bad MSM misconstruing what she's saying.

Minor correction - this is not testimony that Powell swore under oath. The document is written by her lawyers on her behalf - Lawrence J. Joseph, Howard Kleinhendler, and Jesse R. Binnall. I presume that they are trying to give the best defense to their client in making this argument.

Meanwhile, grandstanding about the January 6th peaceful protest doesn't impress some folks.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/judge-surprised-ex-top-prosecutors-speculation-media-capitol-riot-sedition-charges

You know, I got into a bit of a slapfight with Zak over my hardline assertion that when the lawyers come out, it's time to be publicly quiet and let your motions and arguments in court do the talking (granted, my wording was 'shut the fuck up', although it wasn't specifically directed at him).

That also goes for prosecutors. But the speculation I've seen is that Sherwin doesn't expect many convictions -- so the plan is to drag it out and use the 'process is the punishment' tactic.

Womp womp.

Still, this won't be about getting actual convictions, I think. They'll drag it out as long as they can. The process is the punishment.

I tend to agree about being quieter publicly and letting court actions speak. Far too much goes to the court of public opinion -- where tons of people have a definite opinion about what the outcome of a given court case should be despite not hearing all the evidence that a jury has. There is a place for press to cover ongoing trials, but in general, I think many people are quick to judge on complex trials without crucial details. (And of course, their opinion is usually governed by their politics.)

Just listening to the Eric Munchel and Lisa Marie Eisenhart case review.

Man, the US court system is super corrupt, no wonder the Chinese dont give a fuck about what the US says regarding their genocide. 

It makes you look like laughing stocks.

That WaPo article couldn't be more slanted if they'd written 'Sponsored by the DNC' at the top.
