Breaking: Holder DOJ Went Judge Shopping to Three Different Judges Armed With Criminal Warrants for James Rosen The Holder Department of Justice went judge shopping with criminal warrants for James Rosen.

Two separate judges refused to offer DOJ the ability to secretly search the contents of Rosen’s e-mail account. A third judge, Royce C. Lamberth, appealed the decision and overturned the order of the two judges.

Judge Royce C. Lamberth was the third judge approached by the DOJ. He appealed two previous judges’ decision and allowed the DOJ to secretly snoop on FOX News reporter James Rosen.

Wasn’t Royce C. Lamberth the judge who ordered Clinton to release the emails leading up to his impeachment?

This is wrong information. I looked last week,it was a magistrate under Lamberth’s court. Lamberth is conserative,I would not think they would even go there. Going now to look up the paper work again.

Lamberth is a Reagan appointee and presided over the FISA court, which approved covert national security wiretaps. He used to give Clinton fits.

He may simply be growing senile. He was both in 1943 so is 70. Or maybe someone boiled his cat?

OR the government may have loaded up the search warrant affidavit with shocking stuff.

Let me see, turned down by two judges, goes to a third, highly unethical. Then they allegedly told Fox News about the subpeonas but Fox has no record of being told. Methinks we have the makings of a case against Mr. Holder. And not to forget, his excellency put Holder in charge of looking into this problem. Seems to me his excellency should go too as an accessory or in common parlence, a cover up artist.

right. Judge did not “appeal” and it would be a severe breach of protocol to allow judge shopping, unless Just Us Department lawyer lied and said “you are the first judge we came to”

“The subscriber therefore will never know, by being provided a copy of the warrant, for example, that the government secured a warrant and searched the contents of her e-mail account,” Judge John M. Facciola wrote in an opinion rejecting the Obama Administration’s argument.

“Her” e-mail account? Gender error, IRRC.

The original New Yorker story, on which this Gateway Pundit "recap" is based, provides the pertinent information. The Gateway Pundit recap is poorly written. The first "two judges" were magistrate judges; Judge Lambeth is a U.S. district court judge.

There is nothing "unethical" about DOJ's appealing to a U.S. district court judge an order of a magistrate judge with which it disagrees. That's how the process works. Simply put, there was no "judge shopping" here.

What an idiotic characterization by Jim Hoft. Taking an appeal of a denial is not "judge shopping." Judge shopping would be going from one trial court to another until you get a trial court / magistrate to sign the warrant.

Not defending Lamberth's decision, but his role is to review decisions by lower courts.

Someone needs to get this judge’s checking account statement around about this time period.

Of course that would have to be done by Holder and...

aw hell, this country is so far out of whack, I don’t know if it can come back.

The House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal contempt of Congress. The vote was 255 ayes, 67 nays, and 1 present vote.

Eric Holder official portrait

Seventeen Democrats joined with 238 Republicans to vote for the contempt charges against Holder, while over 100 Democrats did not vote, most of them symbolically walking out of the House chamber in protest.

Update: Fox News reports that the House has also voted to hold Holder in civil contempt, 258 to 95.

DOJ/Ohaha's using the 1917 Espionage Act to nail journos (poor overworked Valerie Jarrett burned the midnight oil to come up with that one).

========================================

REFERENCE The DOJ search warrant in the Rosen case cites Section 793(d) of Title 18 of the U.S. Code...... a person lawfully in possession of secret govt-classified info who turns it over to someone not lawfully entitled to posses it has committed a crime (The source).....anyone who conspires to help the source do that has committed the same crime (The journo).

So why the brouhaha? B/c the Obummber crew has NEVER, EVER exhibited a modicum of interest in defending US ntl security from foreign domination ---- nor has it exhibited a concern for the life and liberties of Americans.

On the contrary----via "immigration reform" Ohaha is forcing on Americans entire primitive populations of creepy savages emanating from antediluvean Third World countries.

VALERIE TOLD OHAHA YOUR HOMELAND NEEDS MONEY--NOW' S THE TIME TO EXTORT US TAXPAYERS When the Kenyan butcher hacked a Brit soldier to death, and defiantly gave an interview with blood-soaked hands, Valerie okayed $50 million to Kenya---as a sign of Ohaha's "tolerance and compassion.".

===============================================

YAWN More stupid futile nation-building ---- to subsidize living standards for the Kenya hellhole (dumbos still have no water, electricity, adequate shelter and food). But forget these "amenities" --- your tax dollars will build Kenyan "madrassas" to train more of these jihadist zealots to butcher innocent people.

Not defending Lamberth's decision, but his role is to review decisions by lower courts.

Moreover, the original magistrate judge had issued the warrant. The dispute here involved the question of disclosure: i.e., whether DOJ was going to have to notify Rosen (at some future time, at a minimum) that his electronic files were being searched, or whether DOJ could keep that information secret for as long as DOJ liked (including, forever).

Time to boot 0’s goons to the curb. Holder is at the top of the list. The only thing that makes me a little apprehensive is whether the next in line will be worse.

It's okay, because Judge Lambert apologized -- at least for failing to unseal the warrant order.

A federal judge ordered him to unseal the documents in November 2011, but stuff happens ...

I forgot to put this up on the depending of Obama on Jarrett.. President Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden three times before saying yes, because he got cold feet about the possible political harm to himself if the mission failed. Instead of listening to advisors from the U.S. military, Defense, or even State, Obama was acting on the advice of White House politico and close friend Valerie Jarrett. Valerie Jarrett? Is the story credible? According to Edward Klein, a reporter once asked Obama if he ran every decision by Jarrett. Obama answered, “Yep. Absolutely.” http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/08/obamas_strange_dependence_on_valerie_jarrett.html

Name of the Month - Nimrod

By: Jeff A. Benner

The name nimrod is not Hebrew but it is a Semitic name and is therefore closely related to Hebrew. The name comes from the Semitic root מרד (MRD) meaning "to rebel". In the Ancient Hebrew/Semitic cultures a person’s name was closely related to their character and therefore Nimrod's name fits well with his personality. The name is formed by placing the letter נ (N) before the root. A common means of forming words and names out of a root in Hebrew is by placing the letter מ (M) before the root while other Semitic languages use the letter נ (N). Because of this we know that Nimrod is of a non-Hebrew Semitic origin.

The person Nimrod is only mentioned in Genesis 10:8,9 but these two passages speak volumes about the character of Nimrod. The standard translation for verse 9 is something like "He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the LORD". It would appear that there is nothing out of the ordinary about Nimrod. So, why is he so often seen as such an evil person?
