Restraining order against Bush denied ( suffering from radioactive fallout ? )
Nashua Telegraph ^ | Sep. 21, 2006 | ANDREW WOLFE

Posted on 09/22/2006 2:26:27 PM PDT by george76

A federal judge on Wednesday denied a former Republican congressional candidate’s request for a restraining order barring President Bush or Vice President Richard Cheney from bombing Iran or Syria.

Mary Maxwell, 59, of 179 Loudon Road, Apt. 10, Concord, filed a lawsuit Monday against Bush, Cheney and other “unnamed defendants actively engaging in acts of war against Iran and Syria in the guise of the war against terrorism.”

Maxwell’s suit seeks a ruling that the administration lacks legal authority to pre-emptively attack either Iran or Syria without a Congressional declaration of war, and that radioactive fallout from the use of nuclear weapons in any such attack would endanger people around the world, including herself.

Maxwell was one of two candidates who unsuccessfully challenged six-term Republican incumbent Congressman Charles Bass in the primary election last week.

Maxwell argues that the Bush administration has claimed broad executive war powers by declaring a “war on terrorism,” and that Congress has shown a disinclination to challenge that authority.

Her suit cites media reports from various sources, citing Pentagon plans for pre-emptive nuclear strike on Iran, and also reporting on the limited extent of Congressional opposition to the Bush administration’s war powers.

While the Bush administration has yet to respond to Maxwell’s suit, U.S. District Court Judge Paul Barbadoro on Wednesday denied her request for an emergency temporary restraining order barring the administration from attacking Iran or Syria.

Maxwell...bringing suit to avoid personal injury from radioactive fallout.

“Unless I personally can show harm, I don’t have standing to bring the case,” ...

Another mental case nitwit. This flaming asshat thinks the courts have jurisdiction over matters of national security? And this foaming b-tch as she talks about the "executive war powers" implying somehow the US is living under tyranny that she should consider if she lived in Iran and tried to file a lawsuit preventing the building and use of a nuclear weapon by Iran's president, she'd be thrown into prison so fast it would make her head spin.

Her, we can't even lock her up where she really belongs: in a mental hospital.

She must be using the Soviet revision of the U.S. Constitution that they had planned o force on us after they won the Cold War...

Unfortunately for them, they lost - but apparently some of their paperwork has found its way into our country.

Given some recent SCOTUS decisions, e.g. Hamdan, apparently the Courts believe they have jurisdiction over national security matters. We should just be thankful that she lost the primary.....otherwise the NRCC would be pumping money into her campaign.

“Unless I personally can show harm, I don’t have standing to bring the case,” ...

Next step - get the American Psychological Association to recognize Bush Derangement Syndrome as a mental illness, and then she can "show harm."

I sent her this email:

A restraining order on the President and Vice President?Have you totally lost your mind? Thank God the voters in NH kept you out of the race. You belong in a padded room in a straitjacket and not in Congress. The Republican Party does not need looney loose cannons like you running around, we have enough to worry about dealing with the looney dimocrats.

Our courts are not in the business of dictating foreign policy or national security!

And she responded:

Surely you don't mean I should be in a straight jacket because I have looked to the courts for help!

What do you, as a Republican, think we should do about the fact that the Executive branch of our beloved government refuses to obey the law, indeed says it does not need to obey the law?

Are you for rule-of-law?

Pray, tell.

Yours sincerely, Mary Maxwell
