In the future, if you come to a juicy DU post that you have a good idea is NOT going to last, do the following:

1. Open up new tab or, better yet, new browser window.
2. In new browser window, navigate to https://archive.org/web/
3. On the right side of the webpage, look for "Save Page Now" with a box that looks like this:



4. Copy url from the DU post.
5. Past url into the text box and click "SAVE PAGE" button.
6. You may have to wait a few seconds, sometimes even a minute or two, but once it's done, the page is forever archived. Make sure you copy the archive link and keep it handy in case MIRT takes down the live shot.

That's it!

There is also Archive.Today.

Nick Sandmann’s Legal Team Gives Update in Pursuit of Fake Accusations by Media
https://www.theepochtimes.com/nick-sandmanns-legal-team-gives-update-in-pursuit-of-fake-accusations-by-media_2786230.html

Quote
The legal team representing Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann, who was confronted by a Native American activist in Washington in mid-January, said they made an important move on Jan. 30.

Todd McMurtry, an attorney who is helping represent Sandmann, said that he had a productive day with Lin Wood and Taylor Wilson, who are also part of the team.

“We sent out our first round of document preservation letters to a number of national media outlets. We have put them on notice!” McMurty said via Twitter.

The media and left are the bullies and mobs.
Quote
“A mob comprised of activists, church and school officials, members of the mainstream print and broadcast media, and individuals on social media, including elected public officials and celebrities, rushed to condemn and vilify this young man by burying him in an avalanche of false accusations, false portrayals, and cyberbullying that have threatened his reputation and his physical safety,” they added.

Covington Students’ Lawyer Receives Bomb Threat
https://www.theepochtimes.com/covington-students-lawyer-gets-bomb-threat_2778095.html

Quote
Robert Barnes, the lawyer for the Covington Catholic High School students who were the focus of a recent slew of false reporting, received a bomb threat after he warned media and celebrities that they may be the targets of a libel suit if they didn’t retract or correct false statements about the students within 48 hours.

The threat was sent via email through the contact form on the website of Barnes’ law firm on the morning of Jan. 23.

“I’m coming to bomb your office. Get ready. 48 hours. Be ready,” the message read.

Even with the longer and more videos, the left has doubled down. The left is really off kilter and violent prone.  :mental:

Vianney teacher resigns over socially-charged retweet about students involved in Native American protest video

Quote
ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- The controversy over a viral interaction between a Native American and a Kentucky high school student in Washington led to a controversy at a St. Louis-area high school.

A teacher at St. John Vianney High School has resigned because of a tweet harshly criticizing the boys in the video, who had come from a pro-life march and were accused of harassing and mocking participants of the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington D.C. in January.

Dawn Finley taught English at Vianney for nearly six years but stepped down from her job after she retweeted someone else's politically-charged thoughts about the happenings at the march.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

She has a history of re-tweeting vile stuff.







There is also screen captures for that as well.

DougCo parents to protest teacher's tweet calling Covington Catholic High student 'Hitler Youth'
https://gazette.com/blogs/dougco-parents-to-protest-teacher-s-tweet-calling-covington-catholic/article_76f98a32-28c9-11e9-b320-53c0ded8d291.html

Quote
To the north of Colorado Springs, Douglas County School District parents and other community members plan to protest Tuesday over what they consider unfair practices.

The group will demonstrate from 5:30 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. in front of the administration building, 620 Wilcox St,.in Castle Rock, against “teacher bullying” and the school board not allowing them to speak publicly at the January board meeting.

Brad Wann, a parent and one of the organizers of the demonstration, is one of five people who wanted to address the board last month about what they say is a concerning development in their district.

What Michelle Grissom did was bullying and harassment on a person who was not even in Washington, DC when that incident happened. She needs to be fired.

A teacher at Mountain Ridge Middle School in Highlands Ranch, Michelle Grissom, publicly tweeted that a Covington Catholic High School student at a rally in Washington, D.C. was a member of the “Hitler Youth.”

She was referring to a January incident in Washington, D.C. involving students from the school and a Native American activist.

Grissom, also a district union leader, attempted to instigate an online mob against the teen, Wann said. She also misidentified the student she was talking about, citing the name of another person.

”The Twitter comments made by Ms. Grissom were inflammatory, aggressive and grossly inaccurate,” Wann said. “She was basically doxing the student, posting where they lived, trying to get a mob to go after this child, when the father pointed out that his son wasn’t even there.”

Grissom should be training to run the French fry machine at BK[/i] (M would be too good for her!). She cannot be trusted around students! But because she's a union thug she might get transferred, at most.

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — The superintendent of the Douglas County School District has made a recommendation to the school board to fire a teacher who is accused of derogatory comments directed toward a Covington Catholic school student following an incident in Washington, D.C. last month. 

Mountain Ridge Middle School teacher Michelle Grissom was placed on paid leave following online comments where she called a Covington Catholic school student “Hitler Youth.”

Hope Michelle Grissom gets sued along with Kathy Griffin and Bill Maher. She should be in prison.

Nick Sandmann Lawyer: Those Who Attacked Covington Student ‘Need to Be Punished’
https://www.theepochtimes.com/nick-sandmann-lawyer-those-who-attacked-covington-student-need-to-be-punished_2794493.html

Quote
An attorney for Nick Sandmann, the Covington Catholic High School student who was vilified after a confrontation with Native American activist Nathan Phillips, said that those who allegedly defamed his client “need to be punished and they need to pay a high price for what they did.”

Todd McMurty, the co-counsel for Sandmann, told Fox News on Feb. 7 that legal action was being considered against dozens of celebrities, media, and other groups on accusations of libel and defamation.

“We are identifying people that may be libel. And then we’re sending out what you call document preservation letters,” McMurty said on the “Todd Starnes Show.” “These letters are designed to put people on notice. … So we sent those to about 52 organizations that include celebrities, national media sources, Catholic diocese that were involved in this. So all those people have received notices.”

52 people have been targeted ranging from Michael Rapaport, Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher, and Alyssa Milano.

Quote
McMurty said on the Todd Starnes Show that the legal team had stepped up preparations of the suit, which could target hundreds of individuals and entities.

“We will continue to expand that list of 52 and I suspect when it’s all over the list is going to be in the hundreds as we identify other people who have defamed, slandered and libeled Nick both in the press, live programs, and writing,” McMurty added. “We do intend to pursue as many of these people as we possibly can.”

More are going to get sued. Perhaps Kirsten Powers, Jack Morrissey, Michelle Grissom, and Sarah Beattie are next.

Threats Against Covington Students Possibly Felonious, Prosecutor Says
https://www.theepochtimes.com/threats-against-covington-students-possibly-felonious-prosecutor-says_2790230.html

Quote
People who threatened violence against the students of Covington Catholic High School may face up to five years in prison thanks to a Kentucky law that elevates threats against schools and students to felonies.

Commonly, violent threats are treated as misdemeanors in the state (pdf), where the private religious school is based.

But Kentucky law (pdf) has a special category of “terroristic threatening in the second degree” that pertains to threats of acts “likely to result in death or serious physical injury to any student group, teacher, volunteer worker, or employee of a public or private … school.”

They should be charged. I wonder why there are no federal charges being made as some of the threats are from outside of Kentucky.

Investigators say Catholic school boys did not start confrontation in D.C.

Covington, KY (AP) - COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Investigators hired by a Kentucky diocese have found that Catholic school boys didn’t instigate a confrontation at the Lincoln Memorial that went viral on social media.

Covington Bishop Roger Foys initially condemned the students’ behavior after a video showed a teenage boy face-to-face with a Native American man. Days later, Foys apologized for “making a statement prematurely.”

Case closed. The Covington Boys have been cleared. They did nothing wrong. They should never have been subject to a viral video.

Covington teen Nick Sandmann sues The Washington Post for $250M
https://nypost.com/2019/02/19/covington-teen-nick-sandmann-sues-the-washington-post-for-250m/

Quote
Covington Catholic student Nicholas Sandmann filed a $250 million defamation lawsuit against The Washington Post on Tuesday, accusing the newspaper of targeting him in “a modern-day form of McCarthyism.”

Attorneys for 16-year-old Sandmann — who was filmed in a viral confrontation with a Native American man in Washington, DC — claim the newspaper led a “mob of bullies which attacked, vilified & threatened” an innocent minor.

“Washington Post recklessly ignored basic journalist standards because it was eager to advance its biased agenda against @realDonaldTrump by impugning individuals perceived to be his supporters,” attorney Lin Wood said in a statement.

Good. And Nathan Phillips is getting sued.

Covington Catholic Teen's Lawyers Intend to Sue Native American Activist Nathan Phillips

Quote
Lawyers for Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann intend to sue the Native American activist who got the ball rolling on the agenda-driven smear campaign against their client and the rest of the Covington boys.

L. Lin Wood, an Atlanta-based attorney who specializes in aggressive defamation suits against the media, told LifeSiteNews on Friday that Nathan Phillips’ “lies and false accusations” against Sandmann and the other Covington students are “well documented” and he will be sued. He confirmed to PJ Media on Twitter Wednesday that he intends to sue Phillips.

Wood explained in a tweet last week that a sworn deposition from Phillips would "prove invaluable in obtaining justice" for his client.
