Posted on 06/14/2013 12:45:30 PM PDT by Perdogg
Two defendants in military sexual assault cases cannot be punitively discharged, if found guilty, because of unlawful command influence derived from comments made by President Barack Obama, a judge ruled in a Hawaii military court this week

Well, well. It appears our “Constitutional Law Genius” is really a jerk when it comes to the Constiution.
That’s o.k. He has no use for most of it anyway.
Wow, what a bitch slap to the big ‘O’.
Despite their despicable behavior, from a political standpoint this is a positive outcome.
What a maroon the Commander in Chief is. We’ll never see this on mainstram media. Good thing Stars and Strips exists.
Apparantly my vowel keys are broken. :-(
Does this mean that ANY military person charged with sexual assault could not be punished?
Sounds like Jug Ears needs to stick to his Beer Summits and stay the hell away from a podium unless he has a telepromter.
This guy continues to impress me with his (lack of) mental capacity...
Well, maybe Barry should back off on the close and personal interference.
I’m sure Big Zero’s comment about Saint Skittles looking like his son will be accepted as grounds to dismiss the case against George Zimmerman. After all, The Big Zero is exercising undue influence on a case.
How can George ever receive a fair trial when the president calls out in favor of one side.
The file for stories ignored by the MSM is getting mighty full.
I don't think this is a "positive outcome," in any way. It's Obama's fault, of course, for sticking his nose where it didn't belong, but it's not a "positive outcome." Even if this is something that can be used against Obama politically, that is a small benefit (with everything else swirling around Obama these days, this one is meaningless) and is far outweighed by the fact that this only benefits personnel who are conficted of despicable crimes.
Essentially, yes, if the defense submits Obama’s statements.
“I expect consequences, Obama added. So I dont just want more speeches or awareness programs or training, but ultimately folks look the other way. If we find out somebodys engaging in this, theyve got to be held accountable prosecuted, stripped of their positions, court martialed, fired, dishonorably discharged. Period.”
ironic- of course when it came to the murder of innocent babies by abortionist Gosnell, ayatollah obama would not comment because the trial was ongoing...but lets’ indict soldiers before due course...
I read down in the article after posting that. An Admirals public comments effected 60 cases last year.
This is a get out of jail free card.
Not a SCOTUS ping, but a very interesting ruling related to Obama’s comments on sexual assault in the military. Thought y’all might be interested.
Where was Obama when the Commander in Chief (Bill Clinton) was accused of workplace sexual harassment, rape, lying to investigators, lying in court, bribing witness testimony, threatening witnesses, etc?
He is a sh!theel for attacking our military as sexist and as potential rapists.
The words that Obama used that were deemed 'unlawful command influence':
The bottom line is: I have no tolerance for this, Obama said, according to an NBC News story submitted as evidence by defense attorneys in the sexual assault cases.
I expect consequences, Obama added. So I dont just want more speeches or awareness programs or training, but ultimately folks look the other way. If we find out somebodys engaging in this, theyve got to be held accountable prosecuted, stripped of their positions, court martialed, fired, dishonorably discharged. Period.
Of course the question comes up would those people have been convicted or even charged if it weren’t for Obama’s statements.
His policies have exacerbated the disciplinary problems which exist in the military.
got that right, since all this corruption has started I have been flicking through channels and local media and papers and there is not a peep on most of this by the media.
sexual assaults on men in the military has reached record levels, and that started when don’t ask was overturned but not a peep about men being raped by men in the military.
IRS, Hell I;ve hardly seen CNN mention that.
Holder, the only time he;s mentioned on MSNLSD is when they are protecting him..
The media is a joke and are not even asking where is Obama and why was he meeting with homosexuals and cross dressers in the white house while he sends out his scapegoat to tell the world we will get involved in Syria
“-—genius “——oh, yeah, he repeatedly shows extreme geniousity. Remember when the cops “acted stupidly “. The kenyan has no idea when too shut his pie hole.
You think 0bambi really wanted these assailants to be punished?
Justice thwarted is 0bambi’s MO—for the increased social upheaval, of course!
Oh, Lord - all the MTI convictions at Lackland will now be appealed on this ground and we’ll NEVER get caught up at the appellate level!
I was going to post LOL, but it should be more like FCOL.
For crying out loud...
This _resident never fails to under impress.
the rank amatuer commander in chief (small “c” intentional)
he thinks he can be all political all the time and will bear no consequences for it
a military judge has just shown one way he can’t
Military Judges take UCI very seriously. Thanks, Gen. Amos and Soetoro/obama!
well lets look a his college/law school grades(chuckle)
Anything that undermines the Military’s confidence of Obama is good. There may be a time in the near future where he will rely on them. I sincerely hope the Military is a no-show for the ‘One’.
The harm he’s done to the military far outweighs any 2 or 3 individuals.
It’s not that the “perfessor” doesn’t understand Constitutional law, it’s that he plainly (Benghazi) doesn’t understand that commander in chief thing.
The same should hold for The Trayvon -Zimmerman trial.
anyone who thinks this is "positive" are just as twisted as the judge....
“where is Obama and why was he meeting with homosexuals and cross dressers in the white house “
And did you hear he was introduced at yesterday’s “gay” event at the white hut by a couple of 3rd graders? Brainwashing innocent little kids.
the military is in lock step with our creep in charge....and now, sexual assault will be winked at, because there virtually is no punishment...
Well, at least there’s ONE power structure in Hawaii that isn’t corrupt. They gave us King Obama’Bama Meha in the FIRST place.
the “constitutional and legal scholar” just stepped on his crank.
. . . and this tells you exactly how much lawyerin’ he has done with his shiny law degree. now I understand why he bailed out of law and went into “community organizing”; because he sucked at it.
But he won the prise he’s the president, he got elected, you gotta respect the office .how much worse would things be if we,!,, didn’t have him? Doireallyneedasarc?
he was and they were there.
The founding fathers are turning in their grave
Believe it or not, there was a woman who called into a radio program and said she has direct knowledge that 0bama and some of his close staff are child molesters. I’m not kidding. Maybe he’s Michael Jackson’s brother, with that creepy ‘I appeal to women but have sex with little children’ persona. Take note that Michelle RECENTLY said she is “a single mom”. WTF?
Not saying this is positive, but a case where the judge is following the law. Improper command influence must have consequences, just as an unlawful search and seizure does in civilian courts. The judge may not like the decision he reaches, but if the law clearly compels him to do so, then I’m OK with his decision. I will gladly take a judge who follows the law rather than makes, repeals, disregards or ignores the law as it exists.
If the cases were male on male, 0b0z0 actually protected them!
He’s supposedly a lawyer, albeit a lousy, non-licensed one.
All I Hawaii = all in the family
All I -——> All in
Ha Ha, “O” is a dip $hit
I was thinking the same thing.
The defense attorney (or military equivalent) for these guys was an evil genius. Seriously.
I guess the beer garden episode didn’t teach him a lesson, eh?
Perhaps they should come to the same conclusion with George Zimmerman - Obama did say that if he had a son, “Trayvon the Saint” would look like him. I don’t recall, but I’d bet he also said some other tripe about justice and such.
I’m sure Obama will say he has no tolerance for judges who claim Obama said something wrong. He will probably try to have this judge removed or maybe a very intrusive IRS audit will be visited upon him and his family. This guy is worse than Nixon as far as using the federal gov’t to go against his enemies.
