Amber Heard is one of the most manipulative women I have ever experienced outside of film. She accused Johnny of leaking info to TMZ. He got really upset and told her she didn't exist and was just a made up thing in his head and then she had the nerve to tell him he was being cruel and she was just defending herself. I was so happy when he responded "You're defending yourself against something I didn't f**kn' do and I'm not gonna sit here and argue with you because I know this sh*t will go on forever. You have been nothing but cruel and I will see you in court" and this whole time she was still screaming that she was defending herself. :smh: :facepalm:

I'm not sure what the behavior is referred to in psychology..."projection" maybe? But all through these recordings, as well, as reading her documents, Amber Heard's pattern of defense, always has been reversing their actions in their relationship. In other words, her complaints, accusations, etc that she accuses Johnny of doing, she actually is the one guilty of exhibiting that behavior. It must have been very frustrating for Johnny during these times, being at the receiving end of much emotional abuse on top of her hitting, punching and throwing objects at him. The emotional abuse, calling him fat, washed up and no longer wanted for work, is horribly cruel. I think, as ForeverYoung pointed out, Johnny's final words to Amber stating that she "didn't exist" had to hit hard because she didn't expect him fighting back. Personally, I loved that he told her off. He didn't call her names, he didn't say anything about her weight or her slow moving career or even that she partied too much. No, he told her she didn't exist to him anymore. The powerful impact of those words were well earned.
Bravo Johnny!

There is a blatant misinformation campaign now against Johnny's recounting of events and against those audio tapes believe it or not. "Bloggers" and Indie journalists are saying these prove she was the victim and we shouldn't blindly turn in his favor.

FYI, these "journalists" are actively seeking out and blocking Depp support accounts to prevent us from commenting and correcting their lies.

AND WORSE, not only is Kaplan retweeting them, but@ MeTooMVMT is actively promoting them too

#justiceforjohnnydepp

Now, I am furious. The #metoo movement does NOT speak for me when they are trying to back a violent, manipulative person like Amber Heard!!

(I am a survivor of many kinds of abuse. My childhood and first marriage were hell. I have prolonged PTSD as a result and find myself Very Well Educated on these sorts of cases and the psychology behind them.)

What are you #metoo doing backing ANYONE who is Violent? Seriously? Are you trying to just re-traumatize Survivors or create an atmosphere where we just smother Survivors like Johnny Depp?

Talk about GASLIGHTING?! Did you listen to the same tapes that I did?? Did you not hear the blatant Gaslighting from Amber Heard?! She said... That is different, when Johnny brought up her throwing things causing injury to him! She spoke over him and would hardly let him speak.

Johnny- You threw pots and pans and vases at me...you punched me in the face...you lied about it...

Amber Heard- Yeah, I started physical fights...I didn't punch you, I was just HITTING YOU!... You are such a baby!

I have followed Johnny Depp since 21JS. I have watched his generous nature. No, I do not know him, but I have heard all the news...good and bad...Johnny has owned up to it all. It is interesting to note that Johnny's previous partners stood up for him in the face of these abuse charges, while we all know that Amber Heard has been arrested for domestic violence abuse!

Amber is most afraid, in these tapes, of losing her integrity. (TOO LATE!) Not that she threw a bottle that smashed off the end of Johnny's finger!!

One thing I find interesting is that it seems that this 'article' has the true facts of the case. Many of the people who I have listened to lately have a few facts incorrect. I deduce that this information and this article is from, as Lbock stated, a higher up source who knows the facts, such as Amber Heard and her lawyers and backers.

This article is GASLIGHTING at its best!! Thank you #metoo for showing your true colors!!

I have watched AHs body language from the beginning of her marriage to Johnny. I never trusted that she really loved him due to her body language. Now, we know that she was abusive before the marriage. Johnny stated that she got violent often and that he had hoped that the violence would decrease after their marriage.

This woman hijacked the system. She manipulated the #metoo movement for her own fame. Listen to her speak. It is gibberish. She talks in circles.

I apologize for going on with my two cents, but I needed to do so. This may get moderated or deleted, and I get it.

I am just SO OVER #metoo, the ACLU, #timesup, and anyone else backing Amber Heard's violence.
Society almost destroyed Johnny's career over this. Now, society wants to 'protect' Amber Heard!!
Maybe, I should say that the media and social media, not all of society.

I am really looking forward to this court case, especially if it goes before a jury. Lord please help them to find justice.

Previously, when referring to an article, I meant to reference the twitter accounts insinuating this 'misinformation' campaign that was mentioned by Lbock.

Also referred to this article

This was posted on Bye Bye, Blackbird’s TUMBLER site a couple days ago. It addresses the misinformation and the calculated twisting and spinning of the audio tapes just as that hideous backlash started to gain an audience. As we are seeing, the backlash effort is now in full swing and attracting scary anti-Depp support as well as unbelievable, manipulative threats.

I think the most comforting thing to take away from this post is the knowledge that a lot of very well-spoken, intelligent people are on to Kaplan and Heard’s sick machinations and there are solid ways to combat them. But, we have to stick together, stay focused, and tag everything with #Justice for Johnny Depp. No need to get creative.

Thank you to Bye Bye, Blackbird and damiana-midnight. If I have breached some etiquette or broken some rule by posting this, I sincerely apologize and understand if it must be removed.
1 DAY AGO
53 NOTES
REBLOG | #THESE ARE ALL VERY VERY GOOD POINTS #DONT FALL FOR THE DISINFORMATION TRAP

damiana-midnight:

OK, so I’ve noticed a few things in the past few days and it seems that the justice for Johnny Depp movement is losing a little steam because it is getting defused into nonsense energy drains. Some of this is strategy by Amber Heard’s PR campaign. It’s not just the bots, trolls, and probably several fake stans. There is a point to every single thing that they are doing, and some of you are falling for it. Here’s what you need to look out for:

Deflection: that is any Stan, bot, or troll that likes to use the “mutual abuse“ argument or say that Amber was using self-defense. Any random argument like that to get you spun up and arguing about the wrong thing. All they’re doing is detracting from the fact that she admitted what she did. They don’t want thinking people to know that that’s out there, so they keep those of us aware arguing about the finer points.

Disinformation: that is all the stans, bots, and trolls who like to throw out fake evidence that he abused her, or things that don’t even exist. By now you have seen many many arguments of people using things that have not happened. That includes some of the things that she has said, but now they are making up stuff as well. Do not retweet/reblog those comments! All that does is spread the disinformation.

Distraction: that is anybody pulling up non sequiturs and things that make no sense and seem to come out of nowhere. People who want to get you into a conversation about random things that are not relevant to the actual discussion.

The bottom line is this: when we all stood together and used the justice for Johnny Depp hashtag, even with Amber Heard is an abuser, it worked because everybody was using the same hashtags and it hadn’t got bogged down into 1 million different ones. It also worked because once it started trending, people who were unaware of the case suddenly sat up and started paying attention. Then it spread like wild fire. The problem is, all of the haters are now watching those hashtags so we have to change tactics.

The best course of action now is to do one of two things – – either start posting the links to the audio on trending hashtag’s so that the word gets out to more people, or keep your focus on the organizations that represent Amber Heard and keep the pressure on them to have her removed. It’s fine if you want to split your energy between both, but trying to combat the haters will not work. All it does is distract you, and keep disinformation circling, especially when you are retweeting their lies. Do not fall for this!

It is unnecessary to argue with stans or bots that are either paid for or put out there to spread disinformation in the first place. Don’t do their job for them.

Keep the audio links spreading like wildfire so that more and more people can wake up and pay attention. When they start coming on board, and circulating the information, eventually the media and her sponsors will have to pay attention because of the sheer numbers. And by letting her organizations know that we are not going to let up, they will have to at least put her on the back burner if not let her go entirely.

By that point they will know the people have spoken. The important point now is to not defuse and waste your energy. Keep up the good fight Deppheads!

^^Excellent advice, thanks for posting this. Social media is a snake pit. It is very easy to manipulate people and deflect the conversation away from the point of the discussion. Not just social media-- I used to be on the board of a civic organization and it was a frequent technique to let everybody fume and fuss and present facts, and then have an individual speak the board's opinion last. That's all people remembered, the last speaker, and it usually prevailed in a vote. Of course, we were always in the right. :blush:

Speaking up about abuse is one thing if you have any kind of real proof but lying about it is a whole different story. Her own parents told Johnny it was a lie. NONE of her pics have a date and time stamp including the one she sold to the media. Shame on the :censored: :censored: :censored: media for posting this and blasting Johnny without any proof that the picture was valid. :dunce:

Published today, February 11, 2020, and posted on Lbock’s Twitter page. Thank you!

Well-organized synopsis of the reaction to the audio tapes, the recent follow-up attacks on JD and his supporters by the new “MeTooMVMNT”, and thoughts about the good, the bad, and the very ugly principals in the whole heartbreaking saga, especially the very silent mainstream media (hence the title of the article). I have to say I was also gratified to read a brief, almost thinking-out-loud mention of the money/conspiracy possibilities that are emerging now that this intriguing DeCadanet offshoot of/addition to the original MeToo is in play. Definitely worth reading, IMAO, of course.

Thanks for posting this video. I watched it quite a few times and that guy cracks me up. I especially like the part about him labeling Amber as a psychotic gold digging POS. :lol:

I also liked what he said about the Depp fans at 2:04 and what he wants to see happen to her career at 2:26. :harhar:
I have been in touch with JodysCorner.com and made a donation because I really appreciate his fight for the truth here. He said that he felt the truth needed to be told and he will continue with the truth if the story escalates. Stay tuned because I think there is more to come from him. :popcorn:

Has Kaplan gone completely off the rails? Are attorneys-of-record not subject to restraint when it comes to openly engaging in their client’s friends’ poisonous “on the net” misinformation campaign?

Just want to say I love Johnny Depp more than ever. :flashingheart:

Also, here's a new article in the Washington comPost, which is party to Johnny's defamation suit against Heard. The key points against this in my mind are that Johnny's suit isn't "frivolous" :mad2: and the goal of the lawsuit is not "to stifle free speech on a topic of civic interest." His goal is to defend his reputation and his career. Imagine if anyone were to tell a woman alleging domestic abuse that her claim was "frivolous" and an attempt to stifle free speech.

The link isn't working for some reason, so I pasted the article below.


Va. House passes bill aimed at lawsuits by Devin Nunes, Johnny Depp
The Virginia House passed a bill Tuesday that would make it harder to pursue frivolous lawsuits designed to chill free speech, a response to a string of splashy defamation cases filed in state courts by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), actor Johnny Depp and others.

The Senate was set to take up a similar measure in the evening.

Free speech advocates cheered the legislation in the House and Senate, saying the state’s weak anti-defamation law has made Virginia a magnet for dubious litigation aimed at punishing critics and blunting aggressive media coverage on topics of public concern.

Nunes, Depp and other litigants have filed defamation cases seeking nearly $1 billion in damages in courts in Virginia over the past year. Their targets include CNN, the New York Times, Twitter, the actress Amber Heard, the Fresno Bee and a parody Twitter account in the voice of an imaginary cow.

Nunes and Depp both claim they have been wrongly smeared and say they have good reasons to pursue litigation in Virginia. But defendants and critics say the suits are without merit and the venues were chosen to take advantage of Virginia law.

They say the state does not have an effective mechanism for getting frivolous defamation suits dismissed quickly, meaning someone with deep pockets can harass a defendant with expensive and protracted litigation. Such cases are known as strategic lawsuits against public participation, or SLAPP.

Virginia’s new anti-SLAPP bills would afford defendants stronger protections. Provisions in the House and Senate bills would allow defendants to file a special motion to dismiss a lawsuit after it has been served, if the defendant believes the goal of the lawsuit is to stifle free speech on a topic of civic interest.

The move would pause discovery in cases, which is expensive and time-consuming, and trigger a hearing before a judge. If the defendant prevails on the motion to dismiss, the defendant would automatically be awarded attorneys’ fees under the House bill or could be awarded them in the Senate version.

Del. Schuyler T. VanValkenburg (D-Henrico) said he sponsored the House bill because as a civics teacher, he was concerned about First Amendment rights being thwarted through litigation.

“Shutting down speech, I found that offensive,” VanValkenburg said. “Suing someone and getting them into court kind of cuts against everything I stand for.”

Last March, Nunes filed a $250 million defamation suit in Henrico County, accusing Twitter of censoring him and allowing users — including one parody account in the voice of an imaginary cow — to defame him.

“Devin’s boots are full of manure,” read one of the offending tweets by the cow account cited in the lawsuit. “He’s udder-ly worthless and its pasture time to move him to prison.”

Other defamation suits followed against the Fresno Bee, CNN and others over reporting in stories and online commentary about the pieces.

Nunes and his attorney did not respond to requests for comment.

Last April, Depp sued Heard, his ex-wife,in a $50 million defamation case in Fairfax County. Depp claimed the actress falsely implied he had abused her in an op-ed in The Washington Post about domestic abuse.

“Johnny Depp brought his defamation case in Virginia because Virginia is where that Washington Post was printed, Virginia is where the online version of that Washington Post was created, and Virginia is where the servers that routed that Washington Post to the rest of the world are located,” Adam Waldman, an attorney for the actor, wrote in a statement.

While the bills are broadly similar, they differ on key details. If the Senate approves its measure, both bills will move to the opposite chamber for consideration and the hammering out of any differences before possibly heading to the governor for signing.

Alison Friedman, of the Protect the Protest task force that is backing the bills, said she is guardedly optimistic about passage. “Substantively, all the parts for a strong anti-SLAPP bill are there, but half are in the House bill and half are in the Senate bill so it’s really going to come down to conference,” Friedman said.
