Certainly no one should have reasonably believed Rudy’s statements, so how can they be false? Could a kid sue you for relaying the story of Jack & the Beanstalk to him? NO!! The kid is smart enough to know it’s a fairytale. Are you telling me the adults Rudy was talking to are less able to arrive at proper judgments than small children? FREE SPEECH! SHEESH!

Anyone else feel like Jason Miller’s job could be handled by a ‘Magic 8-ball’ with a few canned responses?

  • Claim witch hunt
  • Use Both Sides-ism
  • Outright Lie

We do need to account for the truths that he accidentally admits on live TV (when he should not).

Hearkening back to Powell now employing the “no reasonable person” defense: oddly enough, Powell continues to believe them.

She had promised a “Kraken,” a fraud so vast and many-tentacled that it would resemble the mythical sea monster, but delivered not so much as a goldfish — and now she’s in court saying, in essence, we should have known all along that Krakens aren’t real. In passing, she says she still believes her own story, but that’s in the context of a 90-page filing that insists no one else ever should have done so.

If the judicial system doesn’t take strong action against the big lie, we will be here again in 2022, and very likely in every swing state/district election where the Republican candidate loses. No one should want that.

I expect it has as many elements as there are even prime numbers.
