Important Update Below!!!!!! (now with added PDF link to the ruling!!!!)
In every court case where people are trying to get the Obama admin to follow the law, the Obama folks have been basically telling the courts they can suck it. Blown up hard-drives, data discarded after its been subpoenaed and just generally missing every deadline and letting the judge know their opinion of him.
So while this is funny and it sounds IMPORTANT!!!!!, it’s about useless.
In a stunning ruling, the judge overseeing the challenge by 26 states to President Obama’s executive action in immigration has ordered all lawyers “employed at the Justice Department in Washington, D.C. who appears, or seeks to appear, in a court (state or federal) in any of the 26 Plaintiff States annually attend a legal ethics course.”
Yeah, but as I”ve asked over and over, who’s going to enforce this order?
The “Justice” Dept? Federal Marshals? Congress? Powerpuff Girls?
As always, the Obama admin’s response can be summed up with, “How about you suck my balls?”
Chicago Machine Politics running rampant and getting more and more brazen.
After all, the media surely isn’t going to cover it, the “Justice” Dept is in charge of it, so who’s gonna stop them?
Federal Marshals? Congress? Powerpuff Girls?
Important Update Here!!!!!!!
Since nobody clicks links or reads comments (or posts I guess), here’s HayZeus’ comment that covered what I didn’t.
You know, I actually read the ruling myself when it came onto scribd last night (shut up) and after countless pages of ranting and raving about how the DOJ lawyers, get this, lied to him, I was more than a little let down when his remediation was ethics courses. Okay, yeah, he wasn’t gonna let them in his court again, but… ethics courses. Really? I mean, if this whole thing isn’t a billboard-sized illustration of how dead the rule of law is, then I don’t know what is.
