Skip to comments.Election fraud? Sorry, vote's over
Posted on 12/23/2011 8:19:18 AM PST by Smokeyblue
The judges on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals have ruled that election fraud suspected in the 2008 presidential campaign essentially was canceled by the inauguration of Barack Obama.
The ruling comes in a lawsuit that was filed on the same day Obama was inaugurated in Washington by a team of taxpayers, voters, presidential candidates, members of the military and others who alleged Obama failed to meet the Constitution's requirements for the presidency.
The opinion from judges Harry Pregerson, Ray Fisher and Marsha Berzon explained the concept is called "competitive standing," and they affirmed it as legitimate grounds for concern.
However, in Obama's case, the court panel simply said once the inauguration was held, the claims evaporated.
"The original complaint was filed on Jan. 20, 2009, at 3:26 p.m. Pacific Standard Time, after President Obama was officially sworn is as president," the judges wrote. "Once the 2008 election was over and the president sworn in, Keyes, Drake and Lightfoot were no longer 'candidates' for the 2008 general election. Moreover, they have not alleged any interest in running against President Obama in the future.
"Therefore, none of the plaintiffs could claim that they would be injured by the 'potential loss of an election,'" the court said.

Disgusting. Further undermines respect for the Judiciary.
The new black robed dictators. They don’t even give a damn what anyone thinks about it anymore either.
“The new black robed dictators. They dont even give a damn what anyone thinks about it anymore either.”
All these “birther” rulings are laughable. Contorted twisted logic to get the outcome they desire.
And we actually pay these people.
Punt, punt, punt...
Regardless of anyone’s stance on the “birther” issue, the endless runs-around from the court system are disgusting. Before the election, no one has standing because there was no actionable offense yet, just a potential one. After the election, no one has standing because the election is over.
Pure and simple cowardice and sweeping the issue under the rug.
I’d at least have some measure of respect for them if they came straight out and said, “look, Congress is the ultimate judge of elections — there’s really nothing we can do in that respect, take your case to them.”
So the judges granted “competitive standing” but the cheater already took possession of the prize. Too bad, so sad.
When Gingrich said these judges should be called before Congress...the liberal media went nuts...I cheered.
“Of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
About the only thing we still have is jury nullification.
I is a huge mistake to make judicial offices “for life”.
If the intent is to free judges from politics it may have been well-intentioned,but supremely naive.
We ought to amend the laws ,or Constitution if we must, so that ALL judges ,either elected or appointed serve fixed terms of no more than a modest number of years in the single digits.Let them collect lifetime pensions to reduce the bribery and political pressures if you must.
The Founders envisioned and said the three branches of government were to balance one another,but the judicial branch has claimed and gotten the final say on everything.This must be corrected.
Hmmm, so if there is a civil war, do people have permission to shoot judges, too? ‘Cause I thought it was just politicians and lawyers. If so, I need to buy more ammo.
Not suggesting; Just asking.
Judge Royce Lamberth - Secrecy for the president trumps all else. (Usurper or not)
Judge Col. Denise Lind - The chain of command ends at the Pentagon.
Judge James Robertson - Its been twittered.
Judge David Carter - Ask my recently hired law clerk from Perkins Coie for my opinion.
9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals - “Rosie Ruiz rule” (the cheater already took possession of the prize.”
” Before the election,no one has standing because there was no actionable offense yet,just a potential one. After the election,no one has standing because the election is over.”
Yea, I think that sums it up!
I keep saying that nothing will EVER come of this because we are no longer a nation of laws but of men (tyrants).
The only redress, if we are up to it, is watering that old tree.....
Judges have now officially declared the Constitution non-binding.
Really, we know they have no shame but you’d think they’d be at least embarrassed by these rulings.
They are such jokes.
Voter fraud, in conjunction with open borders, is the Democrats’ vision of the future. Activist left-wing judges will do everything in their power to assist them. If we don’t wake up, the new fascists will prevail.
“Hmmm, so if there is a civil war, do people have permission to shoot judges, too? Cause I thought it was just politicians and lawyers. If so, I need to buy more ammo.

During the French Revolution roughly 60% of captured aristocrats were executed by the Republic. As for the Ancien Régime judiciary, the percentage of those executed shot up to 80%.
Not suggesting, just observing.
