The Heartland Institute Doesn’t Mess Around

Just ask these guys.

And here is a link-heavy WUWT update on the case as well.

Oh, and to those who did the deed:

Fuck you, legal style.

    I personally like the way they call the memos stolen and fraudulent.

    Which is it? Notice they say, “haven’t been authenticated” too.

    Those letters are generally an attempt at bullying, if they could, they would have had a court order.

    They’re screwed, the intertubes is forever, so the more they try to fight them the more people who will see them.

      Um Veeshir, you know why they are calling the one memo stolen and fraudulent? It’s because it was stolen. Also fraudulent. As far as the court order, that’s going to be coming forthwith now that the one guy has confessed.

      The bullshit about releasing info with staffer’s personal information makes me livid.

      • veeshir says:

        How can it be stolen and fraudulent? It seems to me it has to be either one or the other.
        How can you steal something that isn’t real?

        If I post nekkid pics of ATC that aren’t real, how can they be stolen from your phone?

    Let’s see if I get the gist of the matter. Glick stole (“misrepresented himself to get them” if you want to split hairs) the documents from Heartland directly. This is not in dispute. He’s already admitted this much.

    The single “comprehensive” memo that ties it all together and serves as a “smoking gun” for the warmists is what’s in dispute. Heartland says the document is a forgery. The warmists say it’s accurate. The problem with the warmists’ story is that the “metadata” in the electronic version of the document says that it was written AFTER the date Glick admitted getting the other documents from Heartland.

    So Glick is either a patsy for someone who slipped him a “Hitler Diary”, or he’s a forger who’s willing to lie to serve a larger truth.

    So when Heartland says that the documents were “stolen and fradulent”, they are talking about stolen documents, with a fradulent document thrown into the mix to give the forgery the appearance of realism.

    Apparently, Glick also stole the missing “u” from “fraudulent” in my post above.
