Federal Judiciary Sacks The Fuck Up!!

July 31, 2008

The United States District Court for the District of Columbia has just issued its slip opinion in the case Committee on the Judiciary, U.S. House of Representatives v. Harriet Miers, et al. This is the case in which the House Judiciary Committee seeks a judicial determination that former White House Counsel Miers must comply with a subpoena and appear before the Committee to testify regarding the illegal politically motivated forced resignations of nine United States Attorneys in late 2006, and that current White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten must comply with a subpoena and produce a privilege log.

The bottom line is that the District Court sacked the fuck up and told Bush that he is not a motherfucking King, that the United States is a nation of laws, and that Bush and his scumbag courtiers are subject to those laws. More detailed analysis is inside the crack.

The judicial decision eviscerates two different legal arguments made by Bush’s consiglieres.

First, Bush’s legal minions argued that this dispute between the Executive branch and the Legislative should not even be heard by the Judiciary, which should allow the Executive and the Legislative to fight it out in the political arena. The Executive went so far as to claim that judicial resolution of disputes between the Executive and Legislative concerning executive privilege or immunity is “unprecedented”.

The District Court laughed its motherfucking ass off at this ridiculous argument, so pathetic that it would get your ass failed if you made it in a first-year Constitutional Law class:

[T]he Supreme Court has confirmed the fundamental role of the federal courts to resolve the most sensitive issues of separation of powers.

Second, the District Court also continued laughing its motherfucking ass off at the Bush regime’s cockamamie substantive claim on the merits:

[T]he aspect of this lawsuit that is unprecedented is the notion that Ms. Miers is absolutely immune from compelled congressional process.

* * *

The Executive’s current claim of absolute immunity from compelled congressional process for senior presidential aides is without any support in the case law.

PWND!! Bush’s scumbag legal minions are making arguments that are absolutely laughable in their MASSIVE FAIL!!!1!1!! Desperate pathetic arguments of rats on a sinking ship.

The Executive cannot identify a single judicial opinion that recognizes absolute immunity for senior presidential advisors in this or any other context. That simple yet critical fact bears repeating: the asserted absolute immunity claim here is entirely unsupported by existing case law. In fact, there is Supreme Court authority that is all but conclusive on this question and that powerfully suggests that such advisors do not enjoy absolute immunity.

This is judicial legalese for “You fucking fuckwits are pulling shit out of your asses and it’s FUCKING PISSING ME THE FUCK OFF!!!!”

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!! (Of course, the scumbag lawyers making these depraved arguments will all get cushy wingnut welfare jobs after the Bush regime leaves office in January.)

    Appeals, all the way to the Supremes.

    Pardons all around before the Supremes rule, and they will rule in favor of immunity, to set the precedent for the next dictator in chief.

    And no way to stop this. None. It’s all kabui for the disgruntled masses.

    No politician really wants these things, for it will hold THEM accountable. For things they’ve done behind the curtain in aiding and abetting the whole show, from 911 to Iraq.

    Good rant though, hoss, good one. And yes, we DO need a lil something now and then to be happy about, cuz Hope is a hard thing to come by anymore . . and change is an illusion.

    Interesting things out today:

    1) Cheney and Bush had plans/ideas to dress up Navy Seals in Iraqi/Iranian uni’s, and fake an attack, so we could ‘retaliate’.

    2) EFCA-the right to unionize bill that has the GOP and corporate america (Dem’s too) scared all to shit.

    FDL for details on both . . . or google.

    These people are fuckin physco in their determination to take us to a serf level society and get more for the 1%.

    Time for me to hit the merlot, it’s 5pm SOMEWHERE.

    I’m gonna get my Dodger Blue Bob Welch on (5 O’clock Comes Early) (not to be confused with Fleetwood Mac’s Bob Welch down in that Bermuda Triangle) and pretend everythin’s hunky dory.

    Hell, I might even dobro while it all burns down . . . even if I AIN’T in charge . . .

    Harumph.

    You are being pretty liberal with the use of the word ‘lawyers’ —most of these fuckers are products of Liberty and Regent madrassas…err…”Universities”. They may be scumbags holding “law degrees”, but lawyers they aint.

    I’d like to see ‘sacks the fuck up’ in a slightly different context, as in ‘fires Bush’.
