… What is It with Judge Merrick Garland ?? [#judicial activist]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 21st,2016

.. he is a fine lawyer , a top graduate of Harvard Law School ..

.. he was an excellent prosecutor , leading the team that went after Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing case ..

.. he has been a decent judge and appeals court judge ..

.. but ..

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. he is a judicial activist . Yes , that is a serious problem ..

.. Yes , he is not as bad a nominee as POTUS could have chosen . There are radical nuts out there , ones such as Patricia Merritt and Goodwin Liu , that POTUS might have chosen . There is also good reason why POTUS did not choose them — they would not have had a whisp of a prayer of getting a hearing , much less getting confirmed to SCOTUS . So POTUS did not nominate them . He went with someone safer , like Garland ..

.. but Garland is still a judicial activist . A moderate , yes , but still a judicial activist by definition . POTUS has poisoned the federal bench enough with these radical activists . it will take months , if not years of impeachment trails and convictions to remove them all . So do allow this guy on the court ..

… A Rather Appropriate Photo [#JailKate] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 23rd,2013

.. Kaitlyn Hunt is right where she belongs . in Jail . no where else .

.. and her lawyer is an idiot . Screw the lawyer statement .

Anyone who watched Tuesday’s hearing in the Kaitlyn Hunt case knows two things: “Free Kate” is guilty as hell, and her lawyer is an

... right where she belongs !! ...

… right where she belongs !! …

idiot.

Let’s admit that even a good lawyer would have difficulty representing a client as guilty as Kaitlyn Hunt. Bad cases require bad arguments, and if the guilty client insists on fighting the case all the way to trial, any attorney who accepts the fee is going to be obliged to look like an incompetent idiot from time to time.

… No , Baker , It is a Victory …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 30th,2013

.. of good over Evil .

.. This regards an article in  a publication called the Daily Beast . This so – called gentleman , by the  name of  Baker Ansy , has called for President Obama to immediately close Gitmo , calling it  .. ” a massive human rights failure . ” . It could not be farther from the sort . ..

.. These geniuses are taking up tactics that were taught to them in their jihadi training  . No dought , they were also  advised to do this by their legal counsel . They are acting , or trying to  act , to wage a public – relations war against the administration , just as they have done against others before them  , and others in other lands .

..  They are also engaged in legal ware , or lawfare . What this does is totally mucks up the host country ‘ s legal system , while that nation is trying to hold them to account  for their actions on the battlefield . Their hope is that , eventually , the host nation will give up , and possibly let them go free . Ultimately , they are using the host ‘ s legal system as a  weapon against it .
