Full title: Judge Rules That Detroit’s Bankruptcy Is Unconstitutional, Ruling That It “Dishonors” Obama and Son
No doubt about it. The skank judge is a whore who is bought & paid for by the unions. When will we EVER get a Repub governor who would simply just refuse to follow a tyrannical judge’s ruling and just issue a governor’s exec order that overrides & nullifies the judge’s ruling. And put some teeth in it....state that if the judge continues to issue rulings on the particular issue, she will be arrested & tried by the state AG.
Is this for real? Srsly? Has this judge lost her friggin mind? This HAS to be a joke.
And the bankruptcy filing was in federal court.
This judge doesn't realize it yet, but she is about to get slapped down. She has no jurisdiction at all.
And how long before they go bankrupt again because they never fixed the problem of uncompeative Union contracts?
Didn't a city in California do the same thing, and the pension administrators claimed it was prevented by California law?
What was the outcome of that?
Amazing. This is actually true.
Right, Judge?..... Judge?
In the establishment of the 2nd Republic Constitution, there must be some provision requiring bureaucrats be constantly reminded they are servants of the people, not the Fuhrer.
Sometimes there are no words to describe the absolute ignorance and idiocy of the elected officials in this country.
This is on of those times.............
Statement by the ALF-CIO on facebook.. https://www.facebook.com/MetroDetroitAFLCIO/posts/595960953758625
Who will be the regime's version of "Roland Freisler".
.........I am sure this judge agrees with you! She is just doing what her “masters” (Jimmy Hoffa et al) ORDERED her to do.............pure and simple!
All that is going on here is right vs left and the left is bound and determined to FORCE Americans in 49 other states to cough up 18 billion dollars in pension fund bucks for the criminal public employee unions in Detroit who have been in a decades long effort to STEAL all this money from taxpayers by buying judges, among other things. The only thing standing against them is a few votes in the HOuse. Senate and Prez are bought and paid for just like this utterly corrupt judge.
Unions should be outlawed.....and let’s let Detroit see if they have any other initiative other than milking from the taxpayers.....I’d bet good money they’d go back into the dumpster in no time at all!
Any company that even thinks of going there needs to consider carefully...it’s a fully unionized city and they will come after any company that even tries to succeed.. until they too cause them to leave their city....and the people won’t care that that happens any more than they did before.
“They said if I voted for Romney, the country would be in the hands of a bizarre cult worshiping a ludicrous god, and they were right!”
Best post of the day, probably the week, maybe the entire four year term.
I bet when her doctor shines a light in her ear, the wall on the opposite side of the room lights up!
I hope when it falls it doesn’t bring us all down with it.
NYC may have higher debt, but NYC has taxpayers.
Detroit lacks enough responsible taxpayers.
The responsible ones that could, fled the Democratic City of Detroit.
Good thing too, in view of the heavy amount of black racism there.
This action ought to get her removed from the bench.
Unless you are willing to provide 24x7x365 armed security at you building I wouldn’t even consider it. I read somewhere about a business that had bene based in Detroit for 30-40 years that had to leave because of copper thieves that would steal a/c coils and wiring on an almost weekly basis. Can’t do business without power, phone or internet.
That's when the riots start. Hope they don't spread too far outside the city limits.
Who owns a Gran Torino?
Oh I believe that....crime rate overall is up 400%....Welcome to Detroit...the friendly city!
Heck Almost 50% of their street lights are out....the welcome mat for any thief.
Only fools would rush into Detroit...but their are fools!
Ah yes, good old Keynesian economics. It doesn’t matter how much debt we accumulate, we’ll all be dead someday and it won’t matter.
If you have enough taxpayers to support it, you wouldn’t have the growing debt.
Very true. The only reason Detroit is the first to blink is that it has been, essentially, shut out of the bond market. Bernanke's printing is enabling the continued purchase of stocks and bonds, thereby removing the need for due diligence and accurate ratings. When the bond markets seize as a side effect of QE being reduced or withdrawn, the smelly brown matter will hit the whirling blades quickly.
judges on drugs or worse
It was the author’s. I wanted to give him some kudos.
This is really a scary vision of the future if you ask me. We are prohibited from ‘dishonoring’ Obama now?
It is going to take a long time to take this country back from these fools and fascists.
Its cheating, sir, and its cheating good people who work, the judge told assistant state Attorney General Brian Devlin. Its also not honoring the (United States) president, who took (Detroits auto companies) out of bankruptcy.
Definitely a Low Information Voter.
another page of Atlas Shrugged coming true
Just like Justice Kennedy said those against Gay Marriage are Bigots. They are taking emotions and behaviors that were never in the relm of law and can now use thought policing against us to transform us into subjects not citizens...
...Welcome to Detroit...the friendly city!
Heck Almost 50% of their street lights are out...
And the 50% that remain lit are serving as beacons for the copper thieves as they continue their dismantling of Detroit’s remaining infrastructure.
I suspect Chicago is among the worst.
I don't consider loan guarantees to be 'bailed out', while I agree that the effect is still largely the same. The US gov't providing loan guarantees now will all depend on the faith afforded the US Treasury. The percentage of takedown by primary dealers in all auctions over the past few years is exorbitant, and being flipped right back to the Fed within days. The largest source of "confidence" in regards to Treasury bonds, now, is the Federal Reserve via PDs.
How much more can the fed balance sheet explode before retail and institutional investors put on the brakes. I guess that will be determined by how long we dump $85b per month in liquidity into the markets and how long we can get away with direct monetization. Sooner or later, the gig is up.
And yeah, it damn well does matter, when this sort of crap is used to justify a ruling.
What level of feelings and hero worship would she use to justify sentencing someone to prison, who otherwise wouldn't have to go?
THIS is the REAL feminist America - read it and weep.
As a native Detroiter, I am officially disgraced....
I have not studied law, but I think I could be a better judge than this judge.
This is a Justice of the Peace political hack,I assure you. Move on because we ain’t sending no mo money. Shut down this parasite.
<...”And the 50% that remain lit are serving as beacons for the copper thieves as they continue their dismantling of Detroits remaining infrastructure”....>
That’s right! lol....They should just level Detroit and be done with it....but then the people there would end up in our cities!..... I think OBOZO will rescue the city again...using our money of course.
Why do we need a Detroit? Are there not decently run cities nearby?
Democrats/liberals are like bratty spoiled children. They NEVER have to pay for their crimes, either in facing the law or just paying via natural consequences (having to pay off their own debts, etc). They always expect someone else to bail them out from their bad choices. Unfortunately, the spoiled lawless parents force the law abiding family next door (conservatives/taxpayers) to pay to fix their "children's" mistakes.
These people that tell me that I should not worry about big government and continual expansion, that the government is benevolent and will only act in my best interest. Then they claim that those people “in the government” need to belong to a union because their collective bargaining protects them from their evil managers, who are also in the government.
So, I am not to worry because the government is always good, but those employed by the government need protections because it is always evil.
I kinda like the judge's letter to 0bama. Hope it reminds him of his "how he would save Detroit," speech.
And they still got a “loan guarantee” in the end which is exactly why NY has a debt of around $110 billion dollars today.
Wonder how many times that same “guarantee” has been leveraged? FDIC, PBGC, student loans, plus all the myriad guarantees for DOE, USDA, etc. programs.
