Affirmed By Court Of Appeals
by Jerome R. Corsi - July 28th, 2008 - World Net Daily
"It was never the intent of the Congress to have U.S.C. Section 924(c) apply to law enforcement officers," he said.Let's see how many things our corrupt court system did to screw these two men. The court took the word of a drug smuggler who, violating his own promise kept smuggling drugs after provided with a green card and immunity by the prosecutor. Ramos and Compean told their supervisor at the site that they had fired their guns and he said to leave that out of their report, which is why they were charged with a crime. The court would not allow either of these known facts to be provided to the jury, which was as usual, kept ignorant of many facts. Now the appeals court says that they can't overturn the conviction because the jury, in a fair trial, found them guilty.
The appellate court reversed and vacated only the convictions for obstruction of justice under Section 1512(c), ruling "the Border Patrol investigation was not an 'official proceeding' within the meaning of the statute."
I do not believe anyone can say with any integrity that this was a fair trial. Why hasn't the President given them a pardon? No one who cares about justice can figure out what this President thinks about anything.
Making The World Safe For
. . . Politicians
by Paul Jacob - July 27th, 2008 - Townhall.com
In 2006, Citizen Guetzloe premeditatedly communicated with thousands of his fellow citizens by mailing a police report involving David C. Strong, then a candidate for mayor, to approximately 4,000 Winter Park residents. The mailing contained some additional editorial comment, but there was no call to vote for or against any candidate — not that that should matter, of course.So much for freedom of speech. Of course such actions by any of a myriad of left wing organizations or individuals against any conservative would not even have warranted a fine. It would have been dismissed out of hand. What you really find is that Guetzloe is a conservative anti-tax crusader. That is the crime that liberal activist Judge Arnold found him guilty of. There is no justice in America. The courts are corrupt.
Believing he would pay a small fine and ultimately not even have a conviction on his record, Guetzloe pled “no contest.” Instead, Judge C. Jeffrey Arnold sentenced him to 60 days in jail, $8,500 in fines, and three years supervised probation. All for the crime of spreading around his opinion without following all the byzantine rules and regulations enacted into law by incumbent politicians.
When Governments Attack!
by Andrew Langer - July 14th, 2008 - Townhall.com
The ante is upped exponentially when the government adds a criminal angle to its attack. In the case of David McNab, an anonymous tipster led federal law enforcement officials to prosecute him for importing undersized lobster tails. Though he was unaware, and no person was harmed by his mistake, the[y] nevertheless pursued felony charges against him. And because he had imported what they considered an illegal product and actually paid for his shipment, the government tacked on smuggling and money laundering charges as well! McNab was forced to spend huge sums of money defending himself, and he ultimately lost—he is now sitting in a federal prison, another waste of taxpayer resources.It is situations like this that sometimes make me so angry at Democrats I have to take a walk down by the gorgeous Chowan River to cool off. The outrageous conduct of our government is ignored by Democrats, who love the pretense that all of their laws are being enforced for the good of our society. Instead Democrats have turned us into one of the most malevolent tyrannies in history.
Petty scum bag bureaucrats, with malevolence formed from their spite at not being rich, seek out weak citizens who have transgressed laws in trivial ways to destroy them. Smugglers don't order product and document what they ordered. Money laundering laws were not intended to be used to criminalize someone for paying for an order of lobsters. Only tyrannical bureaucrats could extend these laws to such acts.
The example of the Duke Lacrosse players are a perfect example of how our society's bureaucrats regularly attempt to destroy lives for their own aggrandisement of power. People forget, if those kids had not had rich parents, they would be sitting in prison today. Nothing would have protected them. Bureaucrats learn those lessons too. They learn to go after the poor and leave the rich alone. As a result, our society becomes more and more abusive of the poor. Yet it is the Democrats who claim they are on the side of the poor who are setting up this tyranny to protect them. Protect them? Believing that requires an arrogant willingness to ignore the reality of daily life.
Of course a legal system with arrogant disdain for the rule of law is a major aid in this tyranny. Our legal system today is the most abusive revolving door system of injustice that could be invented. It is a system of blackmail, extortion and tyranny. Tort reform, the focus of this article, is one of many major changes needed if we are ever to return to a nation that respects the rule of law. In the meantime, David McNabb rots in prison.
Thank you liberals and Democrats. I will try to remember your intentions were good. I will try to remember you are people too. I will try and not despise you. But it is tough.
Judge To Bush Admin.:
Guantanamo Is Top Priority
by Matt Apuzzo - July 8th, 2008 - Associated Press (Brietbart.com)
A federal judge overseeing Guantanamo Bay lawsuits ordered the Justice Department to put other cases aside and make it clear throughout the Bush administration that, after nearly seven years of detention, the detainees must have their day in court.We are still at war and POWs and enemy combatants have no right to resolution of their cases while the war continues. That is the law. In fact the battlefield in Afghanistan where these illegal enemy combatants were captured is heating up again. However the enemies of this nation are outraged that these forces, blatant violators of the Geneva Convention, have not been freed to kill more American troops. Who are those enemies? They include liberals and progressives and socialists within our borders who despise the free enterprise system that makes us the favorite target of all around the world. Their greed and envy has led them to see our system of government as the major problem of the world. They hate our monetary success and they hate the freedom it engenders. They hate the fact that socialism in all its various forms has failed again and again. They also accept the idea that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Therefore they see these enemy combatants in Guantanamo, who hate America, as their friends. They only care about freeing them to continue the war against America that THEY started.
"The time has come to move these forward," Judge Thomas F. Hogan said Tuesday during the first hearing over whether the detainees are being held lawfully. "Set aside every other case that's pending in the division and address this case first."
The most outrageous comment is Judge Thomas F. Hogan's "If [the evidence against these enemy combatants] wasn't sufficient, then they shouldn't have been picked up." This tyrannical idiot feels enemy soldiers should be treated on the battlefield with all the rights of citizens who are defendants in a criminal trial. Our soldiers must investigate troops who surrender on the battlefield to make sure they really were shooting. If they can't be proved to be shooting then they must be presumed innocent and allowed to go free to kill our troops in future battles.
Judge Thomas F. Hogan is a traitor to America. He should be impeached.
Supreme Court's Embarrassing Error
by Clarice Feldman - July 2nd, 2008 - The American Thinker
A blogger, Caaflog, caught Justice Kennedy having made the biggest error in modern Supreme Court history that I can recall. In the death penalty child rape case, when he said that the death penalty for this crime was "against evolving standards" he overlooked, what a blogger found, that in 2006 Congress itself had made rape of a child a crime subject to the death penalty under the military code.In the new world of "King" Kennedy, such trivial errors as supporting child rapists and defending them from justice based on a lie is of no great concern. Kennedy is one of the most contemptible people to ever serve as a Supreme Court Justice. His arrogance is beyond belief.
No clerk or justice caught this error which is significant and completely undermines the justification for Kennedy's swing vote in this case. Indeed, the entire case it seems to me is of dubious precedential value having been based on a clear factual error of great significance.
The only evolving standards the 5 liberal justices ever care about are the evolving standards of the perverts that they so adore.
Another article on this same issue, "Justice Dept. Admits Error in Not Briefing Court", points out that liberal bias is rampant in all of our justice organizations. The justice department, admits it was an error to not inform the Supreme Court about the recent legislative act to make rape of a child punishable by death. This is the same justice department whose FBI head opposes the second amendment decision. Liberal pro crime perversion of justice is rampant in our so-called justice system. Is there any wonder crime is out of control? From the supreme court justices on down, concern for criminals supersedes any concern for victims of crime.
Lead Paint Cinch
Editorial - July 2nd, 2008 - The Wall Street Journal
Yesterday was a good day for justice in Rhode Island, where the state Supreme Court stopped cold an attempt to turn lead paint into the next tobacco or asbestos.As noted in the article however, the stock value of the companies who were sued have been damaged forever. This is one more case showing the egregious blackmail and extortion nature of our evil court system. Justice today has no relation to obeying the law. Justice today is completely dependent on not becoming a target of the billionaire lawyers who punish companies for making legal products that can be construed as damaging someone. Lawsuits are currently working their way through the system that argue if you like hamburger, anyone who sells it to you can some day be destroyed on the premise that it could make you fat. It does not matter that the premise holds no credibility today. The act will be judged on opinions of some future time. And when these hamburger companies are destroyed and their stockholders have had their life savings taken away, it will have as little to do with justice as the lawsuit where McDonald's was found guilty of selling a hot cup of coffee in a cup that a lady crushed between her legs.
The 4-0 ruling overturned a 2006 jury verdict that was the first court decision swallowing the theory that lead paint is a "public nuisance." Under that legal reasoning, the state claimed lead paint harmed public health – and companies that once made the product could be held liable whether or not there was even an injured party.
Writing for the court, Chief Justice Frank Williams explained that "the state has not and cannot allege any set of facts to support its public nuisance claim."
Our courts are an insane system of blackmail, extortion and a revolving door system turning criminals loose to prey on society. The criminals have "rights" you know. There is no justice in America.
Welcome to the rule of judges.
