Ventura wins $1.8 million in defamation suit
Star Tribune (Minneapolis), by Randy Furst

Original Article

Posted By:ramona, 7/29/2014 2:54:12 PM

Former Gov. Jesse Ventura won his defamation case against the author of “American Sniper.” The jury awarded a total of $1.845 million: $500,000 in defamation damages and $1.345 million for “unjust enrichment” — or to be specific, $1,345,477.25. Jurors could not reach a unanimous verdict, as instructed. Instead, with the consent of both sides, they voted 8 to 2 in Ventura’s favor. (snip) District Judge Richard Kyle said federal rules require a unanimous verdict but allow for a split verdict if both sides agree. Attorneys agreed to 8 of 10 jurors taking one side.

Comments:
Sad. I hope there is a successful appeal.

I am utterly shocked. May Ventura get exactly what he deserves in this life and the next. Appalling.

“They were apparently troubled by what they thought was the exploitation of Ventura,” she said.

What a sick joke that is. I too am completely shocked. This is an outrageous verdict for a lawsuit that never should have been filed. I had a feeling that as the days went by this would be favorable to the despicable jerk Ventura. What an utter and complete travesty of justice this is. This is as outrageous as the lawsuit against Breitbart´s widow by the criminal Shirley Sherrod.

There just has to be more to this than we know. How will we ever know who is telling the truth? I don´t buy Ventura wants to break another Navy SEAL´s family financially. I know he´s a stinker but he is a wealthy man. This is so icky..

The justice system is shot, just like everything else in this country.

Hope the jury and Ventura are happy as the Hero SEAL´s family barely scrapes by. Despicable.

Jesse has enough money, he is a greedy, vindictive, small man. What a travesty.

At least Chris Kyle´s wife and children have The Lord on their side. He takes care of widows and orphans.

If Chris were still alive this would have been dead in the water. Ventura knows this, that is why he went forward after Chris was killed. Here´s hoping karma bites him in his worthless derriere and comes back on him tenfold.

Would it be expecting way too much from Mr. Ventura for him to declare that he proved his case, he made his point and now he will forego the monetary award?

#14, I think he will because how could he not? He cannot hurt a Navy SEAL´s family in such a fashion if the SEALS mean anything to him. If he does not publicly refuse any monetary award, then he will prove true what most people say about him.

He says his reputation is shot forever now. I agree. Not because of what Chris Kyle wrote however, but because of his own actions in suing this SEAL and his widow.

Scum

Iraqi forces reported that the head of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) ´Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi´ was killed in U.S airstrikes. "Despite that Iraqi and U.S sources confirmed the killing of Abu Bajr al-Baghdadi, but the White House did not confirmed it yet", AFP reported. Three senior members of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) - including an aide to its leader - were killed in a U.S. airstrike in Iraq, a senior Iraqi security official told NBC News Thursday. The strike on the ISIS stronghold of Mosul killed Abu Hajar Al-Sufi, an aide to Abu Bakr

Immigrant-rights groups reacted furiously Saturday after the White House made clear President Obama will not take unilateral action on immigration before November’s elections, nodding at the political realities of the issue as he punted on the key policy questions. With a number of key Senate races in GOP-leaning states, Democrats had feared that action now would anger voters and cost them control of the upper chamber, and had privately begged the White House to hold off on any move to halt deportations. But immigration activists said it’s the latest in a series of moves by Mr. Obama to shove their

   

 



 
Psaki Makes Me Psick

State Department spokesman Jen Psaki makes me psick. If you read P.G. Wodehouse, you know the “P” in her name is silent, as in “phthisis,” “psychic” and “ptarmigan” (as Wodehouse’s Psmith explains). And Psaki’s colleague Marie Harf makes me barf. Together Psaki and Harf give the catastrophic foreign policy of the Obama administration a lighter than air, Valley Girl kind of feel. It’s a novel use of expressive form. Paul Mirengoff explores their weightlessness in the adjacent post. As Paul recounts, Harf came to the defense of Psaki when Bill O’Reilly had the temerity to utter pslightly pscathing words about Psaki

Are you tired of being lied to yet? My guess is no... because Americans seem to have developed an infinite capacity for patience with a federal government that is increasingly mettlesome, mendacious and menacing.[SNIP] This last Friday night, an interview was aired which should convince American citizens once and for all that their government is not telling the truth about what happened in Libya two years ago. That’s been obvious to many of us for months, but despite the naming of a select committee by the U.S. House of Representatives to investigate what could have happened, what should have happened,

US President Barack Obama admitted he should have expected to be criticized for hitting the links on the same day that he addressed the beheading of American journalist James Foley and spoke with his family. ´Part of this job is also the theater of it,´ he told NBC News´ Chuck Todd. ´Well, it´s not something that always comes naturally to me. But it matters. And I´m mindful of that.´ He added: ´I should have anticipated the optics´ of playing golf. Obama, who was on vacation at the time of Foley´s murder, was heavily criticized for heading to the golf course

There are moments in edited TV content when a keyed-in viewer can see a cut intended to make a “comfort edit”, smoothing out the narrative. The Chuck Todd interview with President Obama was riddled with them. Even when being interviewed by a fellow ideological traveler. (Video)But first to content: On ISIS: @00:24 “this administration has” – President Obama using third person distancing tactic discussing an uncomfortable negative. When the topic is positive, or viewed as favorable currency, the term “my administration” is used. @01:05 “what I have done over the past several months” – President Obama knowing he was caught flat-footed, having called

A group local Native Americans plan to protest outside NRG Stadium Sunday morning, speaking out against the mascot name of the NFL´s Washington franchise. As the Texans face off against the Washington Redskins on the field, members of the American Indian Alliance of Greater Houston plan to voice their opposition to the NFL team´s name, a long-time national controversy with many Native American groups, fans and public officials demanding the mascot be changed. "It´s a very derogatory term," said Chance Landry, director and owner of the Southern Apache Museum in Houston, who will be attending the protest. "We don´t want our

"President Obama has openly reaffirmed his unconstitutional plan to nullify our nation’s sovereign laws, issuing executive amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants. In so doing, he will wipe away American workers’ lawful immigration protections. Illegal workers will be instantly allowed to take precious jobs directly from struggling Americans in every occupation in America. Countless more unlawful workers will pour across the border and

In a few days president Obama will unveil his strategy to destroy ISIS to a waiting public. (Snip) However the basic outlines of the strategy itself have emerged from information already available to the press. A Los Angeles Times story suggests that Obama will rely on proxies to fight ISIS at three levels: on the ground, within the region and in the West. Kerry invokes comparisons to the Sunni Awakening, seeking to recall the days when al-Qaeda in Iraq was beaten by George Bush. Obama plans to organize the Sunni Arabs to fight ISIS.
