Correct me if I'm wrong, but I hadn't seen this in the media as yet.

Can anyone tell me WHERE the petition of nearly 1.5 million signatures to remove Heard from Aquaman disappeared to on change.org?

Hi Granna!! I couldn't find it last night either and thought it was removed. I bookmarked it.

There seems to be something fishy going on with the petition.

....I remember reading somewhere that he always expected this one to go to appeal anyway, so I expect he thought it could be a landmark case and a good way to finish his career. He went to great lengths to explain his reasoning, probably because he thought it was perfect and would be discussed and debated not just in a higher court, but also for years to come. Lawyers would debate nuances of meaning in his wise and sage legal interpretation.

Insteadhe will look like a gullible old fool. He kicked over an ants' nest and the whole case is being microscopically and publicly examined. If I were him, I would be thinking I had been set up. Wass and Robinson did a number on him imo. And Wass did it in open court with her "don't check the donations" thing. No telling what was going on behind the scenes. He may even be thinking about and mulling over what Camilla has whispered in his ear in the past. Was she part of the girl-gang and did she play an active part?
(Highlighting is mine)
***Your two paragraphs above could not be more true or to the point. The direction things are taking now and the no-holds-barred vitriol being unleashed against Johnny Depp is dangerous, intimidating and, curiously but blatantly, indicative of the to-the-bone fear that has grabbed hold of everyone from Murdoch, himself, (now via the SUN), to NGN, through the High Court players - Nicol, Wass, Robinson - to Robert Palmer (Nicol’s son), Wootton, Julius Robertson, and the cowardly gaggle of lusty worms caught wriggling out from under their ratty, upper crust(y) Doughty St. protective blanket (Baroness Kennedy, Lette, Robinson, Camilla - Nicol’s wife - etc.) only to find their precious reputations now forever tainted by the poison of the ubiquitous Liar for all Seasons, AH.

*** “Gullible old fool” , indeed, Inquiring Minds! Nicol deserves not a grain of sympathy for being “misled” at any point during this “no justice to be had here” trial. He eagerly latched onto a shortcut during a fiasco of a “trial” in HIS courtroom. He knew what he’d created and should have been proceeding as though he had eyes in the back of his head. His personal lust for glory of legacy proportions, greed, and hubris led him down the old proverbial rabbit hole, only this one is of epic depth and consequences.

No way out, buddy. Law students and lawyers will, indeed, be debating his choices and point by point rulings, but only for his outrageous, biased, ultimately indefensible findings. Worse, the Court documents and breath by breath proceedings, including every bit of evidence submitted - not only what time allowed to be heard in the court allotted time frame - are out there for any literate person to read and process. I believe the now world-wide embarrassment he has brought down upon the once venerable High Court may force some perhaps precedent-setting rulings (not likely to play to Nicol’s inflated ego).

***The million-and-a-half signature .ORG petition to remove AH from Aquaman 2, ridiculed for being the child of a “useless, ignored” tool for the public to be heard appears, suddenly, to be intimidating enough to warrant unwelcome tampering.

***If Murdoch has any shred of self-respect left at this point - or, more realistically, a latent desire to be lauded across the planet for being able to admit the wrongs of his NGN’s tactics and SUN publications (certainly not, directly, his own motives) while simultaneously shedding the now cumbersome, moldy debris of the High Court’s once stellar reputation - it just might be worth his while to rethink his long term goal in this ugly, obviously poorly rolled out scam.

I've been in contact with the authors of both Petitions to Fire AH from Aquaman 2 and L'Oreal. I've even worked with a web developer and some other web savy people, and this is what we discovered (through web script and web cached pages).

Apparently, both sites comments section were removed due to violation of change.org policy. Both author's are seeking to see what comments caused the problem. They were not notified at any time.

There are many thoughts here

1) Overzealous AH haters inundated comments with hate, cursing, etc. Although the L'Oreal petition owner doesn't see anything recent like that. The other author went off line (maybe a different time zone)
2) AH stans ganging up on the petitions reporting any and all comments with foul language, etc considered harassment. L'Oreal petition author says those kinds of posts are normal, hate and cursing. She hasn't seen death threats,
3) AH PR team has intentionally infiltrated with hateful comments and/or reported the comments hoping to shut down the petitions.

The result for both petitions, the comments section is removed as of now and it's been removed from the Change.org search bar results.

It's too coincidental that both sites were hit within the same 24 hours. But the petitions are still active and able to receive new signatures.

I'll let you know what I hear back from the authors.

Not fair someone/s can hijack their petitions. But I truly believe this was an orchestrated attack on two petitions within the same 24 hours.

Can anyone make more sense of this than I am? Did we already hear of all this? Sorry for being so unhelpful.

There is an Order posted from yesterday, 11/19/20. It seems request by Johnny to have certain foreign subpoenas quashed was granted.

AH’s request for permission to file a Cross Motion to Compel ...appears to have been denied.

Don’t know what happened to the Protective Order part.

Hearing scheduled for 12/11/20 - don’t know what for - cancelled.

Thank you!!

New docs up in Fairfax

Ah Team (prepare yourself) filing a Motion to Compel. She has the usual laundry list and is asking for sanctions. Please scroll down and read Ben's answer that he believes they have provided all they are required to.

https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/circuit/s ... 8-2020.pdf

There are two orders also posted:https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/circuit/s ... 9-2020.pdf

1) It appears the judge has GRANTED Depp Team request to quash certain "foreign" subpoenas, although we don't know what they are (Foreign is any person outside of Virginia)

2). AH Team requested to file a "Permission to file a cross motion to Compel & Opposition to the Plaintiff's Protective Order hearing (we don't know what the Protective order/motion is). This was denied. I think what she was asking was to combine her "motion to compel which she has filed" along with their opposition. So two motions in one.

I have a feeling AH was able somehow to get admin of the change.org petition site to remove the comments. Based on what I see on twitter, her fans are really lazy. Most of them have never listned to any of the recordings or read any transcripts at all. But who knows? She could be paying people to post things like the one on that U.K. tabloid site (DM) who changes its name over and over to make it seem like AH has all these people supporting her but she really doesn't. This one is very obvious that it is the same person. If you all read the comments in DM I think you know who I am talking about.

Based on her history, whatever she claims Johnny did, she actually did.

She is claiming he is behind a smear campaign and hired bots....so I think her team hired some twitter smear campaign - at least for the Uk tabloids and now the petition attacks

For all we know it could be her freeloading sister and friends who have nothing else to to because most of them don't have any kind of real jobs, including herself.

We need less than 42,000 signatures on that petition to reach 1.500.000 people who want the ex removed from Aquaman 2.

When I saw the Aquaman petition take off, we attributed this to TikTok coming on-board. But with Amber's gaslighting history and smear/bot allegations, I would not be surprised if her team isn't behind a bot attack on the petition to artificially inflate the numbers - then claim that Johnny or Adam are behind it.
