We all saw the other day that the Obama admin had pissed off a judge so much by repeatedly lying to him that some of their attorneys were kicked out his court and they all had to take ethics training.
As I said at the time, the Obama admin’s response is the same as always, how about you suck my balls?
Then less than a week later, Homeland Security admitted that more amnesty applications were approved despite the judge’s rebuke… attributed this to “human error,” on which an official did not elaborate.
I’ll translate, “human error” means “The impotent judge can suck my balls.” “did no elaborate” means, “We are above the law.”
Even without that separate appeal, however, the petition for mandamus sought to lay before the Fifth Circuit the full scope of the government’s complaint against Judge Hanen in the controversy over ethics. It included details of the Justice(sic) Department’s version of the events that led Judge Hanen to find ethical violations, and explained the potential impact of the ethics order. It argued that the ethics dispute arose mainly from misunderstandings between the judge and the lawyers about just what was at stake, and not from a ploy by government lawyers to mislead the court.
Translation: “Sure we admitted to lying to him (knowing the truth as they were swearing to non-truth), but he’s just a federal judge and we’re above the law so we think he should suck our balls. ”
We never had a perfect rule of law, but at least the powerful use to pretend they cared about it.
I forget who it was, but we were talking about how I wasn’t too worried about the Chinese rooting around NASA’s secure files because Clinton had already sold them everything good NASA had back in the 90s. He didn’t remember that.
Sarah Noble at Doug Ross’ page does remember it.
Clinton friend Yah Lin “Charlie” Trie pleaded guilty to charges of violating campaign finance rules in exchange for having pending indictments dropped against him in Washington and Arkansas.
~ According to news reports in 1997, Democratic donor Johnny Chung received a $150,000 transfer from the Bank of China three days before he handed then-First Lady Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff a $50,000 check.
~ Then-Vice President Al Gore received political donations from Buddhist nuns who had taken a vow of poverty…
~ During the investigation by the Department of Justice, about 120 people connected to “Chinagate” either fled the country or pleaded the Fifth Amendment to prevent testifying.
The worst part about it was the way the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc. covered it. “The GOP is attacking President Clinton over supposed……”
I take that back, the worst part about it was the way the “Justice” Dept under Janet Reno agreed with the Gorebot that there was “No controlling legal authority.”
No, the worst part about it is that I’m watching it happen again, only worse.
As I said a few years ago, we’re reliving the worst parts of the 90s with the added attraction that it looks as if we had lost the Cold War.
