A real discussion on the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard Defamation Trial. Please keep things civil and based in law and justice.

2023.06.02 13:01 AdditionalWar8759 Scheananigans podcast: Episode from June 2nd, “Send it to Neama with Lala Kent and Neama Rahmani.”

***continued in the comments
Neama Rahmani - He is Scheana’s lawyer - He currently does plaintiffs work. He does employment, civil rights, and personal injury. - He was a litigator for years - He went to Harvard - He has gotten a guy from the most wanted list. It was a drug king pin
Sandoval - The day Scheana filmed with him, he talked to Brock and, tried to almost threaten us but it was like, “I just want you to know that her family has a private investigator and if they get this video, it’s going to be very bad for scheana when it shows her punching her. And I’m like but I didn’t do it so find the fucking video. Go ahead. Where’s the video,” said Scheana.
Lala on tv - Lala was on night line and spoke about the family court system - And then it looks like they took some of that for the night line impact about reality tv and Scandoval special on HULU - Scheana just met Riley Hamilton who does a lot of VPR tik toks and he was also in the impact special
Randall Scandal documentary - The trailer alone, a couple of days before the documentary aired, had over 14 million views - Lala just watched it last weekend - Lala said there is absolutely going to be a part 2 because part 1 barely scratched the service - Lala thinks Randall Emmett is a monster - Lala was not contractually allowed to be in the documentary. It was done by ABC and Lala is with NBC. - Lala’s mother and brother were in it. Lala told them if they felt compelled to speak about this stuff then do it - They cut down Eastons (Lala’s brother) part a lot because he kept throwing up. Lala asked if he was just nervous and he said no, it was taking him back to when Lala and Randall were together
LA times article - Lala said she was told Randall’s name was getting thrown around to them in 2017 - Neama said the times if super cautious when it comes to this stuff. They don’t come forward unless they tripled check all their sources - Lala got in touch with one of Randall’s ex assistants and he just wanted to let Lala know that the LA times is working on an article about him right now, can they reach out to you. Lala said absolutely, and then they reached out to Lala - Scheana would at times see Randall treat his assistants like shit but then other times she would see Randall provide such good experiences for them that she thought maybe Randall just got overwhelmed at times - Lala said she lost count in how many assistants Randall went through when they were together - Lala told herself with Randall’s last assistant (who is still Randall’s assistant and Lala said he was just as slimy as Randall) that she wasn’t going to get attached to anymore assistants because with others, she formed a bond with them
TRO and the papers that Scheana got at the reunion - Scheana wanted Neama to explain why those papers Raquel served her were bull shit and why couldn’t they get it to go away sooner - Neama said there are 3 types of restraining order - First is called an emergency protective order. That’s when the police show up at your house and they call a judge that’s on call that night and get an emergency order and it usually just lasts a few days - Raquel filed a temporary restraining order (TRO) - A TRO is when a person goes by themselves, the other side isn’t there and they tell their story to the judge and the judge can issue a TRO that usually last about 21 days - The issue with a TRO is that it cannot changed, it cannot be modified in a civil context which is what they were dealing with until the hearing on a permanent restraining order - He said at TRO hearings, it’s like a full on mini trial. Both sides show up, witnesses can come, and they can be cross examined. Then the judge can decide to order a permanent restraining order which can last 3-5 years. - Neama said during that 21 day period there is nothing you can do, it’s in the California rule of court, it’s on their website - Neama kept trying to tell Raquel’s lawyer this but obviously he didn’t understand - Lala said Mickey Mouse lawyer wouldn’t know how to conduct a TRO - Neama said there was two problems when Andy served Scheana those papers - One: As a matter of law, you cannot dismiss the TRO - TWO: What Andy gave Scheana was completely the wrong document. - Scheana ripped up the document when she was on the phone with Neama - This paper was actually a request to dismiss a civil complaint which is a lawsuit and has nothing to do with a TRO - Lala and Neama thought Raquel was going to try to get a lawsuit against Scheana - Neama said Raquel went to the doctor, false medical record - Raquel went to the police, false police report - Neama thinks Scheana was getting set up to have a permanent restraining order and lawsuit against her - Neama said Raquel saying on camera that she regrets the TRO helps all this - Neama said if anything else were to happen, Scheana could go after Raquel for defamation if Scheana wanted to - Neama said what Raquel did to Scheana was abuse on our justice system - If Raquel would have showed up to court, they had a whole plan. “They were going to supenoa y’all.” They had a full witness list and were ready to fight this - Now Raquel’s team did tell them that they weren’t going to go to their court date. If they would have went, Neama was going to ask for a couple of weeks so they could get all their witnesses there - Lala thinks Raquel was not mentally prepared for all this. She thought you just file and it just happens - Scheana has never received a hand written note from Raquel or an apology - For the reunion, Scheana had to be 100 yards away from Raquel, from Raquel’s car, couldn’t have any communication with her, not even indirectly - Scheana couldn’t tell Andy something to tell Raquel because that also violates the TRO - Neama said it was a PR stunt from Raquel’s side to have Andy serve Scheana - Andy cohen can serve papers because anyone who is not a part of the case and is over 18 can serve. This is true in family court too - Delivering flowers are the only number way people use to serve people

2023.06.02 03:29 Duck_Sphere_Assault i dont think the thread about the ben roberts-smith thread should have been removed for being non-political.

it involves an individual suing to silence allegations of war crimes that he committed and coerced others into doing when he was fighting a war for our military and the DOD has been heavily involved in the case, which i believe satisfies the 'directly involving departments' benchmark.
i also dont think the benchmarks set out are appropriate. would this sub have deleted discussion of the gunns 20? if a corporation or individual had killed everything in the murray with pollution would the thread be deleted? things can be political without directly involving the government.
it being removed is also inconsistent with how the rules have been applied in previous defamation cases. at least one mod actively participated in discussion on the crikey/murdoch defamation trial, for example.
its also a somewhat historically important occasion for our society. this is the closest we've ever come to convicting one of our own for war crimes.

2023.05.31 22:32 oc3an-astranaut Buzzfeed: Matty Healy Has Been Spotted In Merch For His Friend’s Podcast That Cruelly Bodyshamed Taylor Swift And Called Her Mom “Miss Piggy”

Buzzfeed: Matty Healy Has Been Spotted In Merch For His Friend’s Podcast That Cruelly Bodyshamed Taylor Swift And Called Her Mom “Miss Piggy”
article link here
podcast link here
"But Matty’s continued support of Dasha’s podcast amid his relationship with Taylor has raised eyebrows, as it was noted that Dasha and Anna have been less than complimentary of Taylor in the past — especially after the release of her Netflix documentary, Miss Americana, in 2020.
In Red Scare’s podcast episode “Make Americana Great Again,” Dasha and Anna made cruel comments about Taylor’s body, sexual assault case, and even her mom, Andrea Swift, in a 30-minute tirade.
The two women branded the documentary “very masterful propaganda” as they called Taylor “literally the walking, talking embodiment of liberalism in that she’s a person who cannot acknowledge their capacity for monstrousness or evil, which is the source of all their problems.”
When discussing Taylor’s brief dabble with politics that is shown in the documentary, the podcast hosts made specific reference to Taylor’s concern that then-president Donald Trump would call her out after she sent a tweet expressing democratic views.
A moment from "Miss Americana" where people are giving a toast and someone says "God help us all, cheers to the resistance"
Dasha laughed hysterically as Anna mimicked Taylor by saying: “She was like: ‘The president’s gonna come for me, he is going to throw me in one of those dreamer detention camps. He’s gonna separate me from my Miss Piggy mother!’”
Both women went on to praise Trump for how “well” he handled Taylor’s tweet, adding: “You come for the king you better not miss, Taylor.”
They later shared their “conspiracy theory” that Taylor’s dad is a Trump supporter, “and she’s probably also secretly a Trump supporter.”
Elsewhere in the podcast, both Anna and Dasha admitted that they “gasped” in disgust when Taylor revealed her current clothes size as they agreed that they don’t believe that Taylor ever had an eating disorder, which the singer opened up about in Miss Americana.
Dasha said: “I don’t think she was ever anorexic, I don’t buy it.” Anna agreed: “I kind of don’t, either.”

They went on to theorize that Taylor’s metabolism had just “caught up with her,” and that the same thing happened to Rihanna as she hit her late 20s — but “Rihanna pulls it off better.”
Elsewhere in the podcast, the women claimed that Taylor looked her best when she was “extremely underweight” and speculated that she’d got “breast implants and ass injections” to “balance out” her body.
Dasha and Anna also lambasted Taylor for “ruining the life of some totally inconsequential DJ” for a “minor grope” as they discussed her 2017 sexual assault trial.
The trial saw a jury rule in Taylor’s favor after former DJ David Mueller filed a defamation case against her because she accused him of reaching under her skirt and grabbing her butt during a 2013 meet-and-greet.
Dasha and Anna went on to make jibes about Taylor’s sex appeal as they made crude remarks about her genitals and theorized that she “doesn’t want to fuck” before concluding: “She has whatever the opposite of a libido is.”
They later theorized that Taylor “essentially” wants to call Kanye West “the N-word” as they argued that her feminism is solely “a direct response to Black masculinity." They even referred to Taylor as a “Nazi” as the podcast episode came to an end.
Anna and Dasha ultimately concluded that Taylor needs to acknowledge that she is “incredibly privileged and incredibly monstrous.”
After the details of this episode resurfaced online, Matty’s support for the podcast and close connection to Dasha while in a relationship with Taylor has left many baffled.

2023.05.30 10:39 Best_Club_In_America Something doesn't add up about Alan Dershowitz: if Netflix "willfully misrepresented" his relationship with Epstein, why hasn't he STILL not sued them for defamation?

Something doesn't add up about Alan Dershowitz: if Netflix
Alan Dershowitz was Epstein's lawyer a decade and a half ago when he got caught the first time.
He also suggested that the public "keep an open mind" about Maxwell.
In 2015, Dershowitz went after the attorneys of one of his accusers and sought to DISBAR them for "defamation".
Okay, so he aggressively protects his public image.
And yet, a few years ago, while claiming that a Netflix documentary both tainted the Maxwell trial AND misrepresented his relationship with Epstein, "for some reason" he STILL hasn't sued Netflix for "defamation".
Why is that?
Alan Dershowitz Writes Essay Defending Longtime Jeffrey Epstein Associate Ghislaine Maxwell, Assails Netflix Documentary Allegations
Alan Dershowitz, who defended Jeffrey Epstein against charges that he had serially abused young girls in 2008, has written an essay in The Spectator defending Epstein’s onetime girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, who was arrested on Thursday and charged with six counts related to the trafficking of underage girls, including transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.
“Like every other arrested person,” writes Dershowitz, “she must be presumed innocent.”
The lawyer then spent most of the rest of the essay assailing Netflix for its recent multi-part documentary, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, in which one of Epstein’s most prominent accusers says Dershowitz abused her multiple times while she was under Epstein’s control.
Dershowitz has confirmed he jetted to Epstein’s private island where sex trafficking allegedly took place, but only once. He says he was accompanied on that trip by his wife and daughter.
As for Maxwell, Dershowitz writes in his essay that he never saw her do anything untoward and assumed she was simply Epstein’s girlfriend.
My wife and I were introduced to Ghislaine Maxwell by Sir Evelyn and Lady Lynne de Rothschild, and we subsequently met her on several occasions — generally in the presence of prominent people such as Bill and Hillary Clinton, Nobel Prize-winning scientists, presidents of universities, and prominent academic and business people. We never saw her do anything inappropriate. We knew her only as Jeffrey Epstein’s thirty-something girlfriend.
Later however, Dershowitz negotiated a controversial plea deal for Epstein in Palm Beach County that shielded the billionaire from federal prosecution in 2008. Epstein pleaded guilty to a state charge (one of two) of procuring for prostitution a girl below age 18 and he was sentenced to 18 months in prison. The deal also shielded Maxwell.
One year ago, Epstein was re-arrested after a cache of explicit photos of girls was allegedly found in his home. The financier was charged with sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy and faced a combined maximum sentence of up to 45 years in prison. Before he could be tried, Epstein hanged himself in his jail cell.
At the time, the New York Times said the arrest deepened “questions about why federal prosecutors in Miami had cut a deal that shielded him from federal prosecution in 2008.”
Today, ever the defense lawyer, Dershowitz urged readers of the Spectator to “keep an open mind about Maxwell.”

2023.05.29 23:00 Gentlemandn Someone I know was accused of sex crimes and the newspaper published it with his name before their trial but they was acquitted. Can he sue the press for defamation?

Someone accused them but it was all false allegations and the person got caught lying at court. But the damage was already done because everyone saw the article and was sharing it all over social media and everyone was bashing them and they lost job at the same time because of the news. The newspaper published his name with charges without evidence and his life is ruined and they're dealing with a huge depression and afraid to go anywhere because everyone thinks they're guilty because it was in the news.
Can they sue the news outlet for defamation of character? Because their life was severely impacted by their actions, and nobody knows the trial resulted in an acquittal?

2023.05.29 17:25 IskoLat Mikhail Kalinin. "The People of Lithuania Are on a New Path"

Mikhail Kalinin.
On July 14-15 of 1940, elections to the People's Parliament [Liaudies Seimas] were held in Lithuania. These elections had an unusual content and significance compared to previous elections. Here the false declarations and unrealistic promises of all kinds of benefits to the people, which the bourgeois parties usually made, were put aside and pushed into obscurity by two cardinal issues:
1) On the proclamation of Lithuania as a fellow Soviet Socialist Republic
2) On the accession of the Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic into the Soviet Union as a Union Republic.
The overwhelming majority of the population took part in the elections - 95.51% of voters compared to 38% of voters who actually took part in the last elections. Moreover, 99.19% of voters voted for the candidates of the Union of the Working People of Lithuania. And this is natural, because the question was clear, understandable to everybody and affected every Lithuanian in one way or another. So, by voting for supporters of Lithuania's accession into the Soviet Union, one thereby determined his attitude to this issue. By voting in 1940, the Lithuanian people, perhaps for the first time in their entire history, could freely reveal their will and their aspirations as a whole, as a people, and, taking advantage of this opportunity, demanded the Soviet system of governance for themselves.
Reactionaries, enemies of the Soviet system of governance, were enraged by this result. Even the liberal democratic circles threw up their hands in surprise. Unable to find, and unwilling to look for the real reason for such a turn by the Lithuanian people, in the specific conditions of their life, they sought to discredit the elections themselves, the voting procedure. But even here these people suffered a fiasco: the genuine democratic nature of the elections did not give any real grounds for defaming them. And, nevertheless, this did not prevent the reactionary press from coming out with hostile articles and bringing forth, as expected from them, facts invented in the editorial offices.
One should not be surprised here. On the contrary, it would be surprising if, say, not the reactionary, but at least the liberal-bourgeois press reacted to these elections positively. In fact, how much work was spent for the political deception of the people, for propaganda and agitation, for school "education", religious influence, administrative pressure, etc.! Mountains of slander were pushed against the USSR, against the Soviet government! It is difficult even to name all the means the Smetona government used to influence the Lithuanian people in order to discourage them from any desire to find out the truth about real life in the Soviet Union, in order to isolate the Lithuanians from even the slightest influence of Soviet culture. For this purpose, it sought maximum isolation of Lithuania from the USSR, not only politically and culturally, but also economically.
It seemed that there were no channels, no ways through which the Lithuanian people's ties with the Soviet Union could develop. However, the actual reality cruelly mocked those who worked so zealously to darken the consciousness of the Lithuanian people, those who tried their best to introduce inertia and indifference into the consciousness of the people. At the first opportunity, the Lithuanian people loudly declared: I want to be a member of the Soviet Union! That's what infuriated the enemies of the Soviet form of governance and still infuriates them to this day. What mean reasons pushed the Lithuanian people on the path to the Soviet system, to its accession into the USSR? There are many very convincing reasons. That they are serious is clear to every Lithuanian, because with his mother's milk he was instilled with the thought that the most valuable thing is the independence of his own country, its greatness. But reasonable people had doubts about the "independence" that Lithuania had, uncertainty about its reality, because the facts contradicted it too much. No sooner had the republic organized itself and the government settled in its capital, Vilnius, than a certain Polish general with his detachment of troops seized Vilnius, expelled the Lithuanian government, and the capital of Lithuania was annexed to Poland, and Lithuania lost its largest and most industrialized city. For the sake of decency, the press made a little noise, and that was the end of it. The suzerain powers did not even lift a finger to restore the violated rights of Lithuania, because the attacker was also patronized by them and probably more valuable as an open enemy of the Soviet Union.
With Hitler's rise to power in Germany, the specter of Lithuania's "independence" has diminished even more. In 1939, Hitler seized Klaipeda, and the Lithuanian government, filled with fear for its own existence, was glad that the seizure was limited only to the Klaipeda region and the treaty, which in effect included the entire Lithuanian economy in the German economic master plan. I do not want to accuse the government that existed of not wanting to do anything to defend the country, but only to illustrate the phantom nature of the "independence" of Lithuania during that time. It would be a mistake to think that the Lithuanian people did not strive for real independence. In 1919, after the expulsion of German troops, the Soviet government was established in Lithuania, which signed an alliance with Soviet Belarus. But the real independence of Lithuania was quickly liquidated by the Entente and the German troops called into the fight by it. In the language of the European bourgeois press, this was called the "restoration" of Lithuanian "independence".
The country's politics and economy developed in accordance with external conditions. After the defeat of the Soviet government, a democratic government was organized. (It was impossible to immediately install a fascist regime after crushing the Soviet government). It didn't last long. Apparently, the common path of development of the Baltic countries was manifested here: the suppression of the Soviet government -> democracy (as a transitional form of power) -> fascism. Obviously, for some "champions" of democracy, fascism is more acceptable, because any democracy, even by a tiny bit, at least for appearance's sake, must do something in the interests of the people. Fascism does not even concern itself with such tasks. That is why fascism in small countries is encouraged by the big "guardians of democracy". The establishment of the fascist regime in Lithuania, the Smetona regime, made Lithuania into a cash cow for German capital. The Germans were not content with just subjugating the Lithuanian economy to their plan. They methodically introduced themselves into all the avenues of Lithuanian life, turning Lithuania into a springboard for an attack on the Soviet Union, which, in fact, they did not hide from Smetona, who shared their thoughts. On the contrary, the preparation of Lithuania's territory for military purposes seemed to justify the introduction of Germans into all the pores of Lithuanian life. In this way, the Germans killed two birds with one stone:
1) They prepared a military bridgehead
2) Quietly adapted Lithuania into a German Hinterland.
The Smetona government saw the danger that threatened the independent existence of Lithuania, and, in fact, did not resist German aggression, trying to curry favor with Hitler, with whose support it now owed its existence to. The only hope of Smetona and his supporters was that they would remain in power under German fascism in one form or another and would exploit at least some part of the people's labor. The above facts clearly show what was really hidden under the decorum of Lithuanian "independence". Smetona's internal policy naturally corresponded to the external one. It consisted in imitation of German fascism, in adapting it to local conditions.
Now even the blind can see that fascism with its ideology and politics is a terrible social evil generated by the era of imperialism. Anyone who has been to the south has seen with his own eyes how a huge tree - pine, oak, cypress - was wrapped by a parasitic plant with bright green leaves. With its stems, it presses tightly against the tree, and numerous shoots dig into the bark and pull out the juices. It is possible to save a tree from death only by destroying this parasitic plant. Fascism is a parasite of the state tree. And if the people do not destroy it in a timely manner, it will inevitably lead the country to the greatest of disasters. Experience has shown that fascism is equally fatal for both large and small countries alike. Having no desire to awaken the creative forces of the people, on the contrary, deliberately putting them to sleep, so that it would be easier to turn people into an obedient herd, the fascist leaders, for example, in Hungary, Romania, etc., shouted furiously: "Great Hungary!", "Great Romania!". It was laughable. But all the fascist meanness was hidden behind this farce.
As for Smetona, he did not even have this prop. His main desire was to cover up, if possible, his dependence on Hitler, to disguise it in front of the Lithuanian people. The task is difficult and, in fact, impossible, because the Germans climbed and penetrated into all the holes and cracks, seized banks, and through them the industrial enterprises, wholesale trade, flooded the country with their literature, films and generally felt no worse in Lithuania than they would at home. In short: there was, perhaps not quite noticeable to the eyes of an ordinary person, but an inevitable process of germanizing Lithuania [1].
Relations between Germany and Lithuania progressed towards not only the actual but also the formal transformation of Lithuania into a German colony (Smetona's request to Hitler about the entry of German troops into Lithuania). If Smetona, seeing all this danger, even wanted to prevent it, then, having neither material nor military resources, and most importantly, not using the moral support of the Lithuanian people, he would not be able to resist German aggression. Smetona had only one path left, which he followed: no resistance, but harmonizing the life of the whole country with German demands and humble obedience to Hitler. With such a "policy" he decided to prolong the appearance of Lithuania's "independent" existence.
Naturally, such a government could not satisfy the people. It could not and did not want to serve the interests of the Lithuanian people. The narrow egoistic interests of this government were closely linked with German interests, and its spiritual demands were related to Hitlerism. It means that the entire state policy of Smetona's government rested on the enrichment of a small handful of people, on the systemic robbery of the people, on the strangulation and all-round emasculation of their national culture.
Perhaps there is no country - both in Europe and in the Americas - where Lithuanian migrants who fled from their native country not only from political repression, but even more simply from hunger, would not be found. The Lithuanian intelligentsia, especially the progressive intelligentsia, was not in the best position either. The opportunity to live and breathe was only in leaving, because they had no work in their native country, and fascism stifled every free thought. The fascist octopus tightly wrapped itself around the Lithuanian people and led them to their imminent death.
These are the reasons that prompted the Lithuanian people to vote for Lithuania's entry into the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
Of course, when voting, the Lithuanian people not only desired to get rid of the unbearable conditions in which their life took place, but they fully took into account the benefits and advantages that the Soviet system brings them. One of the serious factors is that the Lithuanian people, having joined the USSR, acquired real independence. The enemies persistently insist that Lithuania is dependent, since it is one of the sixteen republics in the Union. But these are all enemy fairy tales. Why are entrepreneurs organized into government trusts, syndicates and enterprises? They will say that there is a naked calculation of increased profits from the monopoly. Yes, that's right. True, some of the propertied classes hypocritically condemn them for this from a "moral" point of view. But only the workers' organizations are really fighting them. And trusts, syndicates and enterprises are developing and growing stronger. At the same time, it does not occur to any entrepreneur that he is losing his industrial independence.
I will give other examples. Now everywhere workers and employees unite in trade unions. Who can say that they lose their personal freedom and independence at the same time? Moreover, the trade unions of workers and employees of any state strive to be members of an international professional organization. And this is quite natural, because each of them understands that this is the only way the one can defend personal freedom and independence.
Furthermore, a peasant, protecting his well-being, enters a cooperative, and the coop association formed in the country links up with cooperative organizations of other countries, and there is already an international cooperative association - the alliance. Only moneylenders, predatory traders and speculators can shed crocodile tears over the fact that peasants that are united in cooperatives cease to be independent landowners.
Every association is an organization that restricts an individual to one degree or another. For example, the same peasant, who is a member of a cooperative, undertakes to hand over all or part of his marketable products to the coop. This restricts the peasant in his freedom to dispose of his products in a way. But in reality, the coop protects him from a predatory buyer.
The USSR has sixteen Union republics with a well-known, but equal limitation of their sovereignty. They form a single union state with a different national way of life, with a diverse national form of culture and historical past. Only the Soviet system and Lenin's national policy ensure and guarantee them unbreakable unity and genuine friendship, real freedom and independence. Protecting the whole, the Soviet system and Lenin's national policy give full opportunity for the unlimited development of each republic, every nationality…
The enormous work by our party to create and strengthen the multinational state has been a complete success. Comrade Stalin said the following:
"The absence of the exploiter classes, which are the main masterminds behind the international conflict; the absence of exploitation, with its mutual distrust and brewing nationalist passions; the presence of power of the working class, which is the enemy of all enslavement and a faithful bearer of the ideas of internationalism; the actual implementation of mutual assistance of peoples in all areas of economic and social life; finally, the flourishing of the national culture of the peoples of the USSR, national in form, socialist in content - all these and similar factors have led to the following: the appearance of the peoples of the USSR has radically changed, the feeling of mutual distrust has disappeared in them, a sense of mutual friendship has developed in them and, thus, real fraternal cooperation of peoples has been established in the system of a single union state.
As a result, we now have a fully developed multinational socialist state that has withstood all the tests of time, the strength of which could be envied by any nation-state in any part of the world" [2]
During the Great Patriotic War, the strength of the cohesion of the peoples of the Soviet Union, based on Lenin's national policy, withstood enormous trials. The war with fascist Germany and its satellite states clearly showed how valuable the Soviet Union is for every Union Republic. The enemy occupied all of Lithuania and went far beyond its borders to the east. It seemed that the country had perished under the Nazi boot. But far from the Lithuanian borders, near Orel, a Lithuanian division fought in the All-Union Red Army. And in the capital of the Soviet Union, Moscow, there was a Lithuanian government that called upon and organized, as much as possible, the forces capable of fighting inside Lithuania.
No matter how loud the German military drums thundered, no matter how much fascist propaganda tried to distort the actual situation on the fronts and in the rear of the Soviet armies, no matter how cruelly the Gestapo tortured Soviet patriots, the Lithuanian people heard and saw that a fierce struggle for their liberation was going on. This undoubtedly inspired him with great confidence in victory, inspired the partisans in their difficult and daring struggle in the distant rear of the enemy, and their heroic actions, in turn, raised the spirit and morale of the people. The names of Marytė Melnikaitė, Urbanavičius (Kurmelis), Apyvala, Vladas Baronas, Jacinavičius, Motieka and others have earned glory not only by themselves, but also because they embody the best traditions of the Lithuanian people, their heroism and boundless devotion to their Homeland.

Bronius Urbanavičius
Next, let's take the work efficiency of the people as a whole. Statesmen, industrialists, journalists of capitalist countries continuously call for increased labor productivity as the basis of the country's well-being. The fascist Lithuanian government was not far behind in this. But with the policy pursued by this government, with Lithuania's economic dependence on Germany, the limits of increasing labor efficiency were very limited, and this increase was mainly directed at greater exploitation of the workers. Lithuania's economic development also had purely objective limitations: the small territory of the country, the absence of the main elements necessary for production - coal, iron and generally valuable ores, its predominantly agrarian nature. All this, as it were, naturally predetermined the backwardness of Lithuanian industry and, what is most tragic, the lack of prospects in the future.
By joining the Soviet Union, the Lithuanian people radically transformed the economic situation of their country. From an appendage of Germany, from the backwater of Europe, Lithuania received unlimited opportunities to turn into an advanced and highly developed national republic, as a full member of the great Union. Now her household will be built in a new way. The structure of the industry will change, it will acquire a character corresponding to modern advanced state of technology. It is now provided with a powerful raw material base and an unlimited market for the sale of its products. There are no objective obstacles to specialization, and hence to increase in the efficiency of labor, as the basis of welfare of the people.
In fact, what can now prevent the construction of any factory specialized in the production of any type of goods? Nothing but a shortage of skilled workers, engineers and technical personnel among Lithuanians. I will illustrate my point with an example. In Lithuania, for example, a machine tooling or machine-building plant is being erected. The Union as a whole needs thousands of machines, the plant also produces thousands of machines, but the Republic of Lithuania can use only hundreds or dozens of machines - such is its need for the kind of machines that this plant produces. Wouldn't it be better for the plant to produce machines only for this republic? Of course, technically it is possible, but economically it will be irrational, unprofitable, production will become artisanal and, most importantly, the quality of products will be worse, productivity is much lower. In this way, not only will we not get closer to the American technological level, but we will move away from it, even if the plant had first-class equipment. But the socialist economy strives for a higher productivity of labor than that which capitalism is able to create in its most advanced countries.
Thus, in order to have high labor productivity and its efficiency, it is not enough to have a wish and even a desire to have it, but we also need the appropriate economic and social conditions that the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics gives to all constituent republics. With these arguments, I do not want to belittle or downplay the importance of local or Republican industry, which mainly fulfills local needs. But local industry can also work productively only if it is abundantly supplied with good machines. This is well understood by the leaders of the Republics, who also bear responsibility for the enterprises of all-Union significance.
The Soviet government invested a lot of money and labor in the development of agriculture, which became the largest and most mechanized agriculture in the world. It has become productive, of which the best proof is the satisfaction of its military needs. Lithuanian agriculture is considered productive, it produced significant products for export. But we cannot close our eyes and ignore the fact that this productivity was based on the enormous exertion of the peasantry, on the hard work of the middle peasant on his farm and the farmhand in a larger farm. Physical labor took up their entire lives, leaving no time to satisfy their spiritual needs.
Under the Soviet system of governance, the Lithuanian peasant will not agree to such a life. His public interests are rapidly expanding, cultural demands are growing, which require time to satisfy themselves. The Soviet government highly values labor, celebrating labor feats with awards. But at the same time, it spares no expense to increase cultural and political education of the village. All this imperiously requires mechanization, the introduction of modern agricultural machines adapted to Lithuanian conditions.
These are the ways and means by which the Soviet government increases labor productivity both in industry and in agriculture. Undoubtedly, the Lithuanian people are using these opportunities to their fullest. Of course, it is not easy to move forward the economy and culture of the entire country, especially if it has a lot to catching up to do. But the life of the people, their well-being, demand this first and foremost. The creative forces of the people are inexhaustible, you just need to be able to awaken them.
The questions that I have asked casually and slightly indicate the enormous and complex nature of the tasks facing the Lithuanian people and its intelligentsia.
Fulfilling the program set by the Communist Party, the Union Government not only protects, but also ensures the flourishing of national culture of each Union republic, the established customs and, in particular, the native language of its peoples. It creates all the necessary conditions for the fruitful work of the intelligentsia in its field. Therefore, the Lithuanian intelligentsia bears full responsibility to its people for the cultural prosperity of the republic.
The national school is the first step in human development, the most important stage in the process of forming an active citizen and a patriot of his Homeland - therefore, it must be at the Homeland's top priority. During the implementation of this program, the Homeland should instill in the younger generations a love for their native language, folk songs, native landscape and at the same time expand the horizon of students as future citizens of the Soviet Union, and collectively instill in them a love for the great and multinational Motherland – the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. From this we see that the understanding of all-Union Soviet patriotism is not opposed to the local one. It is from local patriotism, as a popular source, that patriotism grows towards the Soviet system of governance, towards the USSR as a whole.
I think the Lithuanian government helps a lot and in the future will allocate even more of its resources towards the development of literature in the Lithuanian language, especially original fiction, drawing its plots from Lithuanian folk life and contributing to the awakening of new creative forces in the people.
Without a doubt, Lithuania will take an honorable place among the Union republics in the development of all kinds of art and sports, and its folk choirs will be an inexhaustible source for the development of national music and theater.
The war is over. The shackles that bound the creative forces of the Lithuanian people have been removed forever. I sincerely wish the Lithuanian people success in building their Soviet state, in the development of industry, agriculture and culture, national in form and socialist in its content.

"Soviet Lithuania" No. 289,
December 28, 1945
Printed according to the text of the newspaper

[1] As it turned out from the documents presented by the American prosecution at the Nuremberg Trials, the Germans planned to completely destroy the Baltic States and resettles their peoples, in particular Lithuanians, to Belarus. The essence of Rosenberg's instructions on this issue was reduced in practice to the destruction of the Lithuanian people. "The solution to the colonial problem," he wrote, "is not the Baltic question per se, but a question that concerns greater Germany and it must be resolved accordingly."

2023.05.28 10:04 DavidS2310 LegalBytes take on the “near catastrophic car chase”

Have you seen Alyte’s latest video on Harry & Meghan? It’s half an hour long but I love how she presented this “truth default theory” in which people generally believe that what you say is true but if evidence to the contrary is presented, people in general will brutally punish you for the deception. She compared the visceral reaction that people had on H&M’s exaggerated story to how people reacted towards Amber Heard during the Depp-Heard trial and it completely resonated with me.
I also love the bits and pieces that she included in the video on the lies that H&M have told over the years and been debunked afterwards. It’s really interesting to see how many YouTube vloggers have given their take on the duplicitous couple’s car chase story. I really hope they don’t ever come back from this!

2023.05.27 22:28 BlinkTwiceForHemp Happy Hoax Day Everyone!

Oh, and it’s also Lily-Rose’s birthday as well.
Today marks the 7-year anniversary of when Amber, and her co-conspirators, unleashed a desperate plot to defame and destroy a man whilst at the same time to boost her profile and ultimately gain financial reward.
From the trial we know: - Depp had enough of Amber’s bad behavior and wanted to leave her especially after his mom died - Amber was physically violent towards Depp (source: audio tapes from trial) - Amber was the initial aggressor (source: her words) - Amber was (and still is) mentally / emotionally unstable / irrational / unreasonable, she wouldn’t let him leave to see his kids (source: audio tapes again) - Amber berates, demeans and attacks his manhood and fatherhood - Amber plays mind games (source: her testimony and that bizarre dateline interview) - Amber and her friends lived in Depp’s penthouses (plural) rent and bill free so were at risk of being kicked out after the divorce - Amber threaten to extort money, property and possessions out of Depp whilst simultaneously publicly stating she was financially independent (point of fact - some of us just get up and leave an abusive relationship - we don’t want anything from the other person and leave our valuables / stuff behind but hey everyone is different) - Amber uses a theatrical bruise kit to fake marks on her face (source: her own testimony) - Amber lied that she always uses a certain cosmetic kit to ‘hide’ the bruises on her face but it actually came out years later (source: Court TV) - Amber leaked to TMZ that she was planning on getting a TRO and make it very public to hurt Depp, even stating which side of the face to capture (source: Morgan Tremaine’s testimony) - Amber did not have to file a DVTRO in person - Amber can’t act … she wasn’t surprised in the slightest by the media circus when leaving the courthouse (see video of unnatural behavior) - Amber could have left by at least three other more private exits meant for celebrities and high profile individuals (source: EDB), - Amber takes, and keeps, creep shots of Depp when he is passed out and in his most vulnerable state - Amber blames everyone else for her actions like the dogs - Amber could have given the cash settlement part of the divorce agreement directly to charity but she changed her mind (source: Ed White’s testimony) - Amber said she donated all the money away but we know she didn’t (source: ACLU, some European TV show, and Variety article) - Amber kept (stole) the charity money and blamed Depp - Amber had all the divorce money for 13 months before Depp sued her - Amber’s home insurance policy actually paid her legal costs - Amber ghosted the charities (source: ACLU and CHLA) - Amber was caught by other witnesses physically striking Depp and made up a ridiculous story (and quite likely started a rumor) to justify hitting him - Amber claimed Depp pushed a supermodel down some stairs in the 90’s but that same model made a late appearances and testified it didn’t happen (source: Kate Moss’ testimony) - Amber says she represents MeToo but has close connections with dubious characters such as James Franco, David Shane and Dan Woolton to name but a few - Washington Post op-Ed was about Depp (source: ACLU), and - She was, and still is, a woman scorned (see L’Oréal and Cannes news last week).
Did I miss anything? It’s amazing what you remember almost a year later from the trial. And neither Depp or Heard live rent free in my mind - before this week, been inactive for almost 3 months. And before that about another 3 months (when Amber settled in December).
Haven’t even mentioned that very telling and weird divorce deposition she did, omg those self-owns plus you can’t tell me she wasn’t on something!
Why she never just took the cash settlement and moved on is still beyond me. She just couldn’t let go - even got him fired from at least one blockbuster franchise.
Every time we think we have broken the glass ceiling and are making real progress, individuals like Amber (and Holmes) just drags us back into the gutter and ruins it for the rest of us.
Only thing left is the jury viewpoint should they come forward. But they saw what we all saw & heard (read: watched the trial™) and 95.93% of us all reached the same conclusion as them.

2023.05.27 17:29 overcherrywine iilluminaughtii (johnny depp supporter) has been exposed

iilluminaughtii is a youtuber with 1.52 million followers on the platform. on june 2, 2021 (ten months before the virginia trial began), she and her team posted a video about johnny and amber.
unlike the many unwanted depp videos that were blasted across my youtube recommendations, i was looking forward to this one. i enjoyed her content and thought -- finally! a sane, balanced take. i remember watching the entire 40 minute video where she presented arguments and got a sinking feeling in my stomach that she was landing squarely on the 'both sides' argument. and in the last fifteen minutes or so, i was clear to me that she was pro-johnny. i unsubscribed that day but kept following her on twitter thinking that she'd come to her senses since she was a logical woman.
over the following months, she became more and more pro-johnny -- even accusing publications of photoshopping tears on amber's face. that was the final nail in my support of her. i unfollowed, blocked, and removed her from my online sphere.
imagine my surprise to see her name trending a month or so ago. of course i clicked and whoa! iilluminaughtii has been in the midst of being exposed as a person who accused former friends (the click, oz media, and wonderstruck guy) of supporting child abuse, financially abusing an employee, and stalking a former friend to harrass them online. she's lost over 200k subscribers. everyone has been in a frenzy about it and it's been heartbreaking to see victims of her actions go over their trauma relating to her. no wonder she related to johnny immediately. no wonder she chose to stand by him despite researching the case.
there's an element of misogyny in her case -- a lot of male youtubers calling her the worst person that ever lived, that her career is dead, spewing a lot of sexist slurs. i don't agree with that. it's disgusting. but i also wonder if it has dawned on her that she subjected amber to this same environment. she stoked the flames and reveled in her 'defeat' and now it's happening to her. this how misogyny works. and blair is experiencing that storm.
