American Courts Are Lawless
If you believe that America is still a nation of laws, we have bad news for you. Courts now twist legal precedent to rationalize the political outcome they prefer. Judges decide who will win a lawsuit based solely upon who the parties to the lawsuit are, which party has more political power, and which party reflects the Judges’ political philosophy. Laws mean nothing to these people. Precedent means nothing. Words have no meaning. Black is white if that is required to achieve the desired outcome. If you think I’m exaggerating in any way, you have not been paying attention.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. This week’s ruling from Arizona District Court Judge Susan Bolton dismissing Liberty Legal Foundation’s Arizona Certification Class Action lawsuit proves the point, yet again. The ruling proves that Judges will go to any lengths to avoid dealing with the Natural Born Citizen issue. In this case, the court claims that they don’t have jurisdiction over the defendants because, according to the court, the defendants haven’t done anything that would make them reasonably anticipate being hailed into court in Arizona. That’s right, according to the Arizona District Court, sending a signed certification that Barack Obama is constitutionally eligible to hold the office of President to the Arizona Secretary of State and asking that Obama be placed on Arizona ballots pursuant to Arizona law is not sufficient to make the DNC reasonably expect that they might be subject to Arizona law. Wow, please re-read that last sentence. It is stunning, but it’s true.
Susan Bolton’s ruling says, “Plaintiffs allege that Defendants will make a representation to all fifty Secretaries of State and ‘request that this Court take judicial notice that Arizona is one of the states.’ However, an act national in scope, not targeting any particular person or place, is insufficient to establish persona jurisdiction.” To be specific, LLF alleged that the DNC had in the past, and would again, send a certification to the Arizona Secretary of State officially asserting that Barack Obama is constitutionally eligible to hold the office of President and asking that the state of Arizona place Obama’s name on ballots. Now, I believe that the Arizona Secretary of State is a specific person. Please correct me if I’m wrong. I hadn’t heard any news that Arizona had decided to have a non-specific group of people serve as Secretary of State. I also believe that the Arizona Secretary of State has a specific office address. Again, correct me if I’m wrong on that point.
Obviously Ms. Bolton simply wanted a particular outcome, based upon political considerations, and twisted the precedent to fit that pre-determined outcome. In order to determine that her court lacked jurisdiction she concluded that the DNC’s act of sending a signed certificate to the secretary of state was more like a non-Arizona company placing an ad in a magazine that is circulated nationally. Such an ad would not make the non-Arizona company reasonably expect to be dragged into court in Arizona if the ad proved to be a fraud. Well, that precedent is arguable too. But the point here is that the DNC specifically sending a signed certificate to the Arizona Secretary of State, asserting a specific fact and asking for the State of Arizona to act in a specific way under Arizona law, is not the same as a non-Arizona company taking out an ad in a national magazine that happens to get circulated in Arizona.
The test for personal jurisdiction over a defendant is whether that defendant reasonably should have known that their act would make them subject to the laws of the given state. Ask yourself, if you sent a signed certification that asserts a specific fact to a top state official and asked that state official to spend millions of tax payer dollars based upon your assertion of fact and that fact was false, would you reasonably expect that a court in that state might want to talk to you sometime in the future? Would that be reasonable?
This obscenity of this ruling is just the latest in a long line of examples that prove that America’s courts no longer follow the law. The law is meaningless to them. They do what they want and justify the outcome by twisting precedent beyond any recognizable meaning.
Liberty Legal Foundation will continue to look for one honest judge. We dare the courts to prove us wrong. Follow the law.Follow precedent. Stop twisting words to mean the opposite of their plain language meaning. If we find such a court we will tell everyone we can that we have found an honest judge. Until then, we will continue to present the truth and watch as evil self-identifies.
We will be appealing this ruling to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. However, we need your help. Please understand that evil hates those that expose their true nature. Because of our fight against evil I have been falsely accused of intentionally lying to court, in two different cases, including the Arizona case. As you well know, evil always accuses those who expose their deeds of the types of things evil does. In the Arizona case Susan Bolton “warned” (read “threatened”) me to not pursue cases that have already been decided. She was referring to the natural born citizen issue as a whole. That’s right, a sitting Federal judge threatened me to not pursue the natural born citizen issue because it has, according to her, apparently already been decided.
So, it is virtually certain that the evil we fight will try to have me sanctioned for continuing to pursue truth. We need your help to keep fighting.
We can’t force the judicial system to follow the law. But they can’t force us to stop telling the truth. We are free as long as we refuse to allow evil to take our freedom. They can harm us, but they cannot take our freedom unless we give it to them. We will keep fighting and we will keep our freedom. Please help us continue to fight.
