The Washington Times has this little vignette that shows how scared the President must be getting about this Birth Certificate thing if he has to send out Federal Agents to intimidate people who question it:
Jesse H. Merrell, who lives on Garfield Street Northwest, tells Inside the Beltway that a pair of deputy U.S. marshals paid him a visit last Friday after he had written a letter to U.S. District Court Judge James Robertson regarding President Obama‘s citizenship controversy.
Judge Robertson this month threw out a lawsuit questioning whether Mr. Obama was a native-born American citizen, and therefore qualified under the Constitution to be president.
The judge ruled that the eligibility question “has been dragged through the mud long enough”.
“The issue of the president’s citizenship was raised, vetted, blogged, texted, twittered, and otherwise massaged by America’s vigilant citizenry during Mr. Obama’s two-year-campaign for the presidency, but this plaintiff wants it resolved by a court,” Judge Robertson wrote when dismissing the case brought by Gregory Hollister, a retired Air Force colonel.
Mr. Merrell now reveals: “I was visited by two U.S. marshals … after I had written a letter to Judge Robertson for his rant threatening sanctions over lawyers who filed a suit challenging Obama’s right to be president over the ‘natural born’ citizen clause in the Constitution.
“I told them unless the First Amendment had been repealed, or they were going to arrest me, we had nothing to talk about.”
Mr. Merrell says one of the marshals cited “some obscure law which made it illegal to say anything that caused ’emotional distress’ to a federal judge.“
So a Federal Judge makes a whiny ruling that really doesn’t address the issues of the lawsuit presented against him. He then threatens the plaintiff’s lawyers with sanctions, and when a citizen sends him a letter saying so, he sends out Federal Marshals to reprimand and/or threaten the letter writer???
So this Federal judge — who seems unable to address the basic facts of a case without becoming emotional — is either the biggest Wuss to ever walk the judiciary, or just a simple bully.
Does either of those alternatives seem to be deserving of a Federal Judgeship? Want to bet what Party he belongs to?
Oh, well — in that case, he certainly seems to be a respected jurist who does not deserve any type of criticism whatsoever.
Oh, by the way, just in case you don’t know what the controversy is about president obama’s Birth Certificate, Pam Geller at Atlas Shrugs has some great posts on just that very subject:
