Judge In Oil Drilling Moratorium Case Receives Death Threats
Interestingly, all of a sudden the Left is quiet about this shocking display of attack politics. A quick check of the liberal sites finds that none of them are bothering to mention and decry what is happening to Judge Feldman
While many Americans undoubtedly agree with the decision of U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman to overturn the Obama administration’s moratorium on deep water drilling, not everyone is happy. In fact, the Judge is now receiving death threats in the aftermath of his bold ruling.
Last night, Feldman served as a celebrity judge at a cooking contest at a school gymnasium in Uptown New Orleans. Due to the threats, Feldman was accompanied by a federal marshal security team.
Unfortunately, this has become part and parcel of politics, mostly due to the conduct of the Left during the George W. Bush years in the White House. And, yes, some on the Right do the same. The difference being that the majority of us on the Right condemn these death threats, and want nothing to do with the real Right side extremists, while those on the left not only couldn’t be bothered when in comes from their side, the people making the threats are mainstream liberals. Moderate liberals are actual on the fringes these days.
Oh, BTW, you know that meme and freakout by liberals about Feldman owning related oil company stock? Yeah, about that
Much of the sensational reporting on Feldman’s investments was based on outdated information. The Judge was blasted for owning stock in Transocean, Ltd and Halliburton, two of the major companies involved in the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Feldman owned those stocks in 2008; however, he sold those shares long before issuing his ruling this week. In fact, this updated information will be released in the next report on his stock holdings.
If Feldman held financial interests in any of companies involved in the lawsuit or the Deepwater Horizon rig, he would not have been allowed the take the case. The 5th District Court uses a sophisticated computer system to check whether judges have a conflict of interest in any legal proceeding. This system automatically determines whether a judge needs to be recused from a particular case. In this lawsuit, Feldman was allowed to take the case because he did not own any stock related to the parties involved.
Liberals and their post commenters to apologize ignore the story in 3..2…1…
