DC jury strikes again…

They definitely ‘toe the line’ based on what their masters tell them…

“Science,” wrote the philosopher Karl Popper, “is one of the very few human activities – perhaps the only one – in which errors are systematically criticised and fairly often, in time, corrected.” The sub-title of Popper’s 1963 book Conjectures and Refutations, in which he argued that science progresses through inspired conjectures checked by attempts to refute them through criticism, is “The Growth of Scientific Knowledge.” Now, a six-person jury in Washington, DC has refuted Popper’s formulation of the uniqueness of science, finding in favor of climate scientist Michael Mann in the defamation suit he brought against Rand Simberg and Mark Steyn dating back to 2012.

This one is…ridiculous, to put it mildly.

Mann’s hockey stick has been disproven multiple times, and it’s well known that he did as much as he could to keep any counter arguments from being published.

The $1 awards were fine, but the $1,000 in punitive damages from Simberg and $1 million from Steyn is when they went off the rails.

Steyn is a conservative, and the ‘masters’ said he must be PUNISHED for questioning the ‘science’…

Why does this sound…oh yeah, $350 M from Trump via a NYC judge…

  1. The Justice System has been hi-jacked by far left loons, hell bent on destroying our freedom and nation. It will only get worse if these lunatics are not removed from power.

  2. To be fair he was punished for questioning the science but the pretext was his comparing Michael Mann to Jerry Sandusky, the child molester from Penn State. He is however, a satirist, and a fairly snarky one at that so that’s the kind of thing he did. Now we can safely assume that free speech is dead for anyone who opposes the regime. Thankfully he will now be able to appeal. Too bad it took twelve years to complete the process in his right to a speedy trial so that he can get to the appeals process.

  3. The two cases cited are indeed dramatic — and, I might add parenthetically, if one is a Christian absolutely wrong (the two relevant doctrines are “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”, which stipulates that any punishment must be strictly comparable to the actual damage done, and “vengeance is mine, says the Lord”, which prohibits any form of punitive damage). No, the problem is much deeper — the total corruption of the justice system in some, predominantly urban, jurisdictions. The notion of a fair trial is a complete joke in these jurisdictions, and that’s the beginning of the end.

  4. Hey Old NFO,

    THe powers that be have no idea what they are eventually messing with…or they do and don’t care. As more and more of “The wrong People” get wrapped around the Justice system axle, more people will remove themselves from the political process and from society and the split comes closer, and then the anger will get answered with blood and not words.

  5. The real trick is to do what they did to Giuliani.
    “You can appeal, but not with your own money which we are taking from you. Pauper.”

  6. Yet another in a LONG line of court case proving that the American judicial system is irredeemably broken.
