RUSH: Let's start off here with the wrist-slap that Lynne Stewart got yesterday from a Clinton appointed federal judge. It's not just the judge in this case, though, who needs to be examined. Lynne Stewart represented the blind sheik, Omar Abdel Rahman. She violated canons of legal ethics. As part of his sentence, he is not allowed to communicate with any of his terrorist buddies. She, his lawyer, did it for him. She could have received up to 30 years in jail, but she gets 28 months. She's going to appeal that. She'll remain out, I think, on appeal, and depending on which judge and court she gets on the appeal, she could have the whole thing stricken.
It was a very interesting case presented by her defense. (paraphrased) "Hey, she's helped the poor! I mean, you gotta examine this woman's life in toto. She helped the poor, and she's had breast cancer, and she's overweight, and that means that she's more prone to producing more estrogen. That means the breast cancer could come back, and it's harder to detect breast cancer in overweight women," and the judge said, (paraphrased) "Yeah, you know what, I kind of like those arguments," and decided on 28 months. The lesson there is that if you do good works earlier in your life and end up before a Clinton appointed federal judge and you are a Democrat, the good works early in your life will mitigate crimes that you commit later on in life.

Rush did a pretty good job of covering it today, I was surprised that The Great One didn't even bring it up, guess it was no big deal to him.
Unfortunately, it will probably take more attacks like 9/11 to finally wake Americans up and make them fight.
We'll know they're serious when we see Sandy Berger at the end of a rope. Don't hold your breath.
She also helped the scumbag send out his order to do the hit in Luxor, Egypt, where 70+ tourists were slaughtered by his jihadist thugs. Too bad some of their relatives were not allowed to tell the judge what this sorry slob of a lawyer's client did to their loved ones, with her enthusiastic assistance.
Too bad some of their relatives were not allowed to take care of it themselves
Our legal system is composed of laws and laws have nothing to do with what is written but what the judge says. Our legal system is broken and it is broken every day by those entrusted with its safekeeping - our judges.
Hitler was a painter, a vegetarian, and liked (some, but not all) kids. He was still a rotten man.
There is no will to prosecute traitors in this country. The homeland is lost.
Make Lynne Stewart the poster child of the democrats.
Put her face along side each democratic candidate.
If a voter can still look at the face and vote democratic, then we clearly need more prisons and hospitals.
When she finally gets to prison, stick a shiv in her.
While they are at it, might as well stick on in the judge also. It is apparent the judge also belongs in prison.
