Can You Say "Outed"

From an msnbc.com report, The Louisiana judge who struck down the Big Zero administration's six month ban on deep-water oil drilling in the Gulf Of Mexico has reported extensive investments in the oil and gas industry, according to financial disclosure reports.

OK, with a year and a half into Zero's regime, it has become common knowledge that one is likely to be publicly coated in a thick layer of schmooze should one openly oppose the regime. Such is now the case of Judge Martin Feldman, a 1983 appointee of President Ronald Reagan.

Extensive Investments: In a 2008 financial disclosure report, Feldman claimed owning less than $15,000 worth of stocks in Transocean Ltd., the company that owned the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig. The report further showed investments in Ocean Energy, Quicksilver Resources, Prospect Energy, Peabody Energy, HALLIBURTON, Penworth Energy Trust, Atlas Energy Resources, Parker drilling and others. Halliburton was also involved in the doomed Deepwater Horizon project.

Well, now we know His Honor lacks honor... he has money in the ultra evil conglomerate, Halliburton!!!

He is one of many federal judges across the Gulf Coast region with money in oil and gas. Several have disqualified themselves from hearing spill related lawsuits and others have sold their holdings so they can preside over some of the 200-plus cases.

I think I see a pattern emerging here. Gulf Coast region + oil and gas industry + investing in said industries = judges on the take.

Although Feldman ruled in favor of oil interests Tuesday, one expert said his reasoning appeared sound because the six month ban was overly broad. "There's been some concerns that he is biased toward the industry, but I don't see it in his opinion," said Tim Howard, a Northwestern University law professor who also represents business and people claiming economic losses in several spill related lawsuits. "They (Zilch & pals) overreacted and just shut down the industry rather than focusing on where the problems are.

So, we have a law expert who says the judge made a sound decision. But we must note the fact that the expert has a vested interest in spill related matters. I could be wrong here, but I'll venture a prediction that there are probably several legal experts with a vested interest in the spill related matters.

Josh Reichert, [on the other hand] managing director of the Pew Environment Group, said the ruling should be rescinded if Feldman still has investments in companies that could benefit. "If Judge Feldman has any investments in oil and gas operators in the Gulf, it represents a flagrant conflict of interest," Reichert said.

I wonder if the job prerequisites for the managing director's position at Pew Environment Group includes a degree in law? Or is this guy just another greenie (read: green-weenie) who has his own greenie agenda to push?

Alrighty then. We have the basic drift. Judge Feldman is a crooked S.O.B who invests his money into those evil conglomerates. He only ruled against Zip's drilling ban to insure he and his big business buds will continue to rake in the big bucks. But wait!!! There's more.

... Feldman frequently jokes with lawyers before his court about his friendship with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, known for his strict interpretation of the Constitution as written more than 200 years ago.

THAT'S IT!!! He's a subversive cork-sucker who is dead set on keeping Americans lock in the yoke of archaic ideas from a band of rebellious bastards from 200-plus years ago. And, he makes jokes in his court proceedings. What more could he possibly be up to?

(uh oh, here it is) Feldman was appointed in May to a seven year term on the "secret" Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, according to court records. The court meets "secretly" to consider requests for wire taps in national security cases, such as those involving foreign terrorist groups.

....................

I suppose my first question would have to be; Who appointed Judge Feldman to the F.I.S Court? My second question may seem a wee tad trivial but, I'm gonna go for it regardless. How does one (such as a reporter) obtain access to court records that provide information on judges appointed to a secret court that decides matters of national security? If it doesn't already, shouldn't such reporting fall under the heading of seditious? It's certainly more of a seditious act than what we bloggers, of the patriotic faith, are doing.

Of course, the article didn't bother to mention the fact that Zero's ban, which suspended operations on 33 drilling rigs, put hundreds of oil worker's (est. at around 1,200) jobs on the endangered list, which in turn, would have caused an economic dip for the entire Gulf region. Sure... I can see where Judge Feldman had only his interests in mind when he made his ruling.

Folks, it was only a few years ago that the former administration received severe and prolonged political fire, from the democretins, over the "outing" of C.I.A super spy, Valerie Plame. Will anyone, on either side of the political aisle, grow a set of central dangling extremities and bring this "outing" to the forefront of the people's minds? (especially those who still believe in the hope and change bull-schmooze, as promised by His Nada-ness) It's early yet but I kinda think this won't see much light of day.

OH, by the way... did anyone happen to hear the report that BP had donated a million dollars to Big O's presidential campaign fund? And now you see how he rewards his friends.

  1. Which is worse: judge with investments in the oil and gas industry or say a judge with a membership in the Sierra Club. If say a judge with such a membership had decided to support the ban would there be such a hue and cry from the media?

  2. The media doesn't have the emotional necessities required to produce a hue and cry. They only parrot what they are being instructed by the regime.

    The only true hue and cry should be coming from the American public. Not as much about a questionable conflict of interest ruling, but rather the patent acts to control or destroy every segment of our society and then personally / professionally ruin anyone who resists.

    The proof in that pudding is obvious, at least in my mind's eye, when all that is needed to create unreasonable doubt as to Feldman's "honor" is splashed across America, in less than 24 hours after he made the ruling.

    To add "possible" death to the injury, he is outed as a secret judge on a secret court dealing in matters of national security. Surely that bit of information had to come from "on high."

    To me, it is a declaration from the regime; "Resistance is Foolhardy AND Futile."
