Mich. Judge Will Keep
Obama Informed, Says
Detroit Bankruptcy ‘Not
Honoring’ President

National Review Online, by Sterling Beard

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 7/19/2013 6:49:18 PM

Ingham County circuit court judge Rosemarie Aquilina, who ruled today that Michigan governor Rick Snyder (R) must direct Detroit’s emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, to withdraw the Chapter 9 bankruptcy petition he filed yesterday, also wrote that she would transmit a copy of her order to President Obama. “I know he’s watching this,” the Detroit News quotes Aquilina saying, noting that she predicted that Obama would eventually step in and take action. Aquilina ruled that the 2012 law that allowed Governor Rick Snyder (R) to approve the city’s bankruptcy violates the Michigan Constitution.

Detroit will just have to pick money off the money tree to honor Obama.
Common sense does not apply..all hail to the Racist in Chief.

Are you sure this wasn´t from The Onion?

" Aquilina also described the filing as “cheating,” and declared that “it’s also not honoring the president [of the United States], who took [Detroit’s auto companies] out of bankruptcy.”

Judge Aquilina, obviously a leftist unionista activist judge, thinks she can order the Governor around?
Sorry, sweetheart, only Obama gets to order around whoever he wants.
There is no basis in the law for a judge to issue a declarative judgement, ordering a governor to do something, and declaring a 2012 law unconstitutional is up to the Michigan Supreme Court. Like Obama and Holder, she is making this up as she goes.

If I was Governor Snyder, I´d be going on a 2 week vacation about now

Loved this line from Steyn´s article, so I stole it:
"If Obama had a city, it would look like Detroit."
Feel free to do the same.

Maybe Detroit can print it´s own money like Zimbabwe to pay off the debts. Exchange rate: 1 billion to $1.

#4, not even the Otard gets to order around whomever he wants - as long as you´re not in his chain of command. And illegal orders are not to be obeyed - that was established at Nuremberg, Germany.

There was another ruling like this not so long ago, the jurist perfectly well knew the ruling wouldn´t stand due to the wacky reasoning,...but what the judge was really doing was demonstrating her bona fides to Lord Obama...and grabbing her fifteen minutes of fame.

Wow!

Will this stand? A state judge is ordering the Governor and Orr to file a petition they do not want in a federal court.

Maybe the Governor and Orr should want to refile. That is a different question.

The rest of her Obama worship is revealing but won´t matter. This will be decided in other venues.

"Honor Obama" - for what? He dumped millions of taxpayers money down a rat hole. He did not even try to correct the real problems which were union greed and overspending on welfare programs.

FTA: "The White House said Friday that there are no plans to bail out Detroit."

Seems when Gerard Ford´s administration (a Republican) said this about New York, the RAT infested media whores couldn´t print "Drop Dead" headlines fast enough.

I´m not holding my breath waiting for it to happen to Dear Leader(US).

But Mark Steyn wins today´s prize for the "If Obama had a city, it would be Detroit." I´m sad I missed today´s Rush Limbaugh show ... I guess I need to sign up for 24/7 access to Rush´s site...

WTbleep...BO did not not bail out GM. The taxpayers, shareholders, creditors and bond holders did this along with the mandatory purchasing of Chevy Volt fleets by govn´t agencies, nationwide.

BO did nothing other than redistribute the wealth to unions and union management to secure their votes, not save the company. PERIOD.

Worked out well, didn´t?

Guaranteed BO will bail out Detroit and every other black controlled urban city that has zero clue how to run its finances (which is probably most of them).

Furthermore, making a ruling "not honoring the President" sounds like something out of the 1500s that would be said to the Pope or the monarchy.

Wow! Let´s start with the Supremacy Clause - federal jurisdiction was invoked upon the filing of the petition. The validity of a bankruptcy filing can not be determined in state court. It is a federal question to be determined by the federal bankruptcy court. This judge has no jurisdiction and, therefore, her order has no effect. Moreover, the party who brought this action in the state court is facing contempt of the federal bankruptcy court for having done so. There is an automatic stay order from the bankruptcy court that issues upon the filing prohibiting any action against the party filing bankruptcy except in the bankruptcy court or where the bankruptcy grants relief from the automatic stay to go the state court. Detroit needs to file an immediate contempt action.

USAID documents cite Hillary

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

   

 



 
Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
