    Judge orders ethics classes for 'deceptive' DOJ attorneys


    A federal judge has ordered annual ethics classes for Justice Department attorneys as a punishment for being "intentionally deceptive" during litigation over President Obama's executive immigration orders.

    "Such conduct is certainly not worthy of any department whose name includes the word 'Justice,'" U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen wrote in a withering order released Thursday.

    Justice Department attorneys misled the court about when the Department of Homeland Security would begin implementing President Obama's executive order granting "deferred action" to illegal immigrants whose children are citizens. In doing so, they tricked the 26 states who filed a lawsuit into "foregoing a request for a temporary restraining order," according to the judge.


    SNIP


    Hanen seemed to lament that he couldn't disbar the attorneys involved, but he barred the out-of-state attorneys from enjoying the right to practice law in Texas.

    Yes, I would go back to a cooperative union of sovereign states, as it was prior to the (un)Civil War.

    Did you know that prior to the Civil War the US was referred to as "The United States are blah blah blah." This reflected the nature of the union. (Note the lack of a capital "u")

    Since the Civil War the US has been referred to as "The United States is blah blah blah."

    Lincoln, and his unjust war of aggression against the southern States, mortally wounded the 10th amendment and Theodore Roosevelt finished it off. Since then we have been a federal dictatorship.

    Based on recent history, I don't believe Judge Hannen is afraid of Obama or his so called justice department.
