Judge bars lawyers from
saying anything about Fort
Hood shooter´s possible
motive for the rampage that left 13 dead

Daily Mail (UK)/Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

The military judge presiding over the case of the Fort Hood shooter has blocked several key pieces of evidence that prosecutors said would explain the mindset of the soldier accused in the 2009 rampage. On Monday it was revealed that the judge has banned prosecutors from giving any speculation into Major Nidal Hasan’s motive in the shooting that left 13 dead and 30 others wounded, including the belief that he felt he had a ‘jihad duty’ to carry out the attack. Prosecutors had asked the judge to approve several witnesses and various evidence to support what they allege motivated Hasan

Th judge, Col Tara Osborn, wants to ensure that the workplace violence motive is ensured. This means that she has to bar terrorism as a motive. Workplace violence means that Major Hasan grew frustrated from having to return salutes and spit shine his dress shoes. "Allah Akbar! If I have to salute one more enlisted man, I´ll go crazy."

Remember, Obama and Holder do not want Islamic terrorists to be viewed as terrorists. Osama is dead and al-Qaeda is on the run. Or something,

If you don´t face the enemy, fight the enemy and kill the enemy, the enemy will only get stronger. Political correctness in the court room only makes the enemy stronger because others will see what they can do and what the consequences will be. His motive was to kill all non Muslims in jihad. In this case he will not get the death penalty I can almost guarantee it. It will be life in a day room with a prayer rug, direct tv, video games, college courses, and all the yogurt and goat cheese he can eat.

Major Hasan should have been executed two years ago. My late father, an infantry lieutenant in WWII, must be rolling in his grave. If a soldier deliberately killed his comrades during that war he would have faced an almost immediate firing squad.

Should another true and honest republic emerge on this planet some hundreds of years from now, I hope they restrict the vote to "White, male, land owners." Had we stayed with that construct, we would still have our republic today.

I do not ´hate´ or disparage those who fail to meet this definition any more than I hate children or foreigners.....it´s simply a matter of granting the franchise only to those who have some skin in the game.

.....and I´m ´flexible´ about the white part more than the male part.

Women, Gawd love them, always fall for the socialist bull-krap about sharing everything equally.

Good intentions do not feed the Bull Dog.

I think I see what´s at work here. If it is allowed to enter the court record that those who practice jihad are at war with the U.S., then perhaps the U.S. should declare war on those who practice jihad. Homey MuzBarack won´t like that; them´s his peeps.

Well, we are, of course, speculating about the judge´s motive for her decision at this point. And I tend to agree with the other posters in their sentiments. However, it will be interesting to see how it all pans out. Maybe she has a good reason? Doubt it, but it IS possible.

What is the difference what the murderer and the slaughter is called. There are a number of witnesses that saw the accused shoot and kill or injure dozens of people. They can call it a love-in for all I care. The man should be sent to jail for life or put to death. Is the judge going to instruct the jury to issue a not guilty verdict ? No matter what the Obama Administration mandates, anyone who was there knows the man is guilty of murder.

The Muslim terrorist himself will likely blurt out his motives when he gets to "defending" himself. Obama keeps trying to protect him and Hasan keeps making a liar out of Obama, Holder, and the judge.

#11, that makes me think of my dear departed grandmother. She felt that the worst thing that ever happened to America was "women´s suffrage." I served in the military in combat support and have always voted, but more and more, I tend to agree with her.

"In US Criminal law, means, motive, and opportunity is a popular cultural summation of the three aspects of a crime that must be established before guilt can be determined in a criminal proceeding."
I always thought it was ridiculous that evidence could be excluded. Evidence and prior history of behavior is certainly relevant. But now apparently idiot judges are excluding motive from criminal trials. It´s true we don´t exactly need to know WHY he did it... multiple witnesses saw him murder innocent soldiers. He should have been pushed up against a wall and summarily executed himself.

#27, it is not necessary to prove motive, but the prosecution will do so, if they know or can prove what the motive was.

In this case, the girl judge is wrong for excluding motive. Allah Akbar, indeed!
She is going to look dumber than barack Obama when Major Hasan takes the stand in his own defense, and spells it out.

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
