It still remains unclear that Judge Benson ever adequately considered the
concerns that lead Judge Lundberg to make her ruling in 2005.
The contempt being shown here is by Judge Kimball in his refusal to acknowledge
Judge D. Passe-Blanco Lindburg's right to attend her uncle's funeral. I wonder if this is a result of the political orientations of the two judges
plus the ethnicity of the state judge? The heavy handed tactics used by fellow
party members of the president who appointed Kimball to stop people of the same
ethnicity as Passe-Blanco Lundberg from being apointed to the federal bench make
this a possibility. If people can shout "racist" based on one comment
said during the State of the Union Address, it does not seem to unreasonable to
suggest when a judge makes an unprecedented threat to arrest another judge.
If Judges can govern themselves above the law, then is their counsel above the
law as well, protecting the judge? I think they do whatever they want to do.
So who died and made Judge Benson king? Hail to the king!Seems to
be an outbreak of elitism among federal officials. Perhaps they've forgotten
who they work for.
Go Judge Benson!!!
The leaders of this trust are practicing felons, and likely have a sound round
of RICO and MANN act violations under their belt.If the federal law
is going to get involved, they need to step up and protect the child brides we
keep finding out about.At least Texas knows how to wrangle those
We have to start recognizing that the Judiciary in the United States is acting
illegally, contrary to Constitutional restrains. They legislate from the
bench.They act superior to its citizens with little oversight. They are
free from prosecution from violations civil rights, due process, and
constitional rights infringement. Judges gave themselves absolute immunity,
which allows them complete autonomy to due whatever they want from behind the
bench. I hope that we have a constitional amendment as some point to eliminate
the illegal absolute immunity to protect society from corrupt judges.
Stories involving polyamy often have interesting twists and turns and this is no
exception.Why is the state so intent on holding on to this trust?
Does it owe money? If it is turned over will the money not be paid? All this is
Not to make too fine a point: *'Herbert seeks disaster declaration
for Utah as a result of floods' - By Amy Joi O'Donoghue - DSNews - 01/21/11 'SALT LAKE CITY Gov. Gary Herbert is asking President Barack Obama to
declare Utah a major disaster in the wake of last month's storms that produced
record-breaking precipitation in Kane and Washington counties. In letter
sent Thursday, Herbert outlined nearly $6 million in damage incurred as a result
of the storms, which dropped 16 inches of rainfall and 15.3 inches of snow in
the region.' I apologize. I just get really upset when
people make the 'keep your goverment hands off my medicare!' arguments. Against federal intrusion... but ALL about getting federal
money. Oh, look! The snow's melting....
'The issue in the article aside,the federal government is not to trump the
states.' - ProudUtahn | 8:09 a.m. Yes. It does. Or is
the Utah milita in Iraq right now? Afghanistan? In...oh, wait. NATO
is in Lybia. The claim that 'states trump federal' is a bold faced
lie. As, almost every year states recieve somekind of 'emergency funding' for
floods, fires, or all kinds of natural disasters. Schools, roads,
police, fire dept, hospitals ALL these some type of federal grants.
To claim 'states trump federal', simple. Stop accepting federal
funds. When your stuck riding your horse on a dirt road, to the
market to try and get enough food to last you through the winter...
tell me how it went. Bottom line: You want your state to be
independant from the country? Then STOP accepting federal handouts.
Like some child throwing a tantrum about their cell phone... after
eating their parents food.
How long before states stand up to these pompous more than well to do judges.Voted or appointed they'd release a sexual deviate to reside near a school,
and prevent a person from attending a funeral. This is the federal government
protecting its citizens.
attentive "Federal trumps State; that's just how it is."That is not what this country was founded on. The issue in the article
aside,the federal government is not to trump the states. I think in this
case it is ones opinion over another. The Judges are making to many laws and
rules that are not in their jurisdiction. They are to interpet not make
laws.Now the article, do I think there was a better way to handle
the FLDS situation? YES! do I think the federal court could have handled their
case differently? DEFFINETLY!my oppinion is based on the little bit
of information I have gathered from hearing people from both sides talk, and the
news media I do not have all the information or facts in either case.
What incomparable arrogance and immaturity shown by Judge Benson. It is
inconceivable that once having intruded on a state matter, he continues to be
such a senseless bully. This is a sign of what is wrong with the limitless
power that federal judges have taken unto themselves.I hope that
Judge Benson's mother is right proud of a son who would send his private army to
arrest an upstanding citizen who wished to attend a family funeral. I am
surprised that Judge Benson didn't order the funeral home to schedule the
funeral around his convenience.Who knows who is in the right in the
debacle of the polygamy money? Is Warren Jeffs still on speaking terms with
heaven? Or is is Willie Jessop? One thing is certain, Judge Benson has proven
that he is biased and power-mad.
Wow, this is fascinating. Wayne McCormick is right in his observations. I'm
not sure I've ever seen anything like this.
Her "judicial immaturity" screams all over this whole situation. May
God have mercy on her professional and personal soul...
Federal trumps State; that's just how it is. Something that all states need to
know and if they don't know it now, they WILL be reminded.
Oh boy, this is a great legal smackdown! It doesn't happen often. Pass the
Here comes the judge -- Here comes the Judge . As livinlarge says it will be
show.--- Seriously I hope it can be resolved without hurting a lot of people
especially the women and children who have little to say in the matter.
Judge Lindberg is about to learn what it is like to be in the same room as an
angry 800 pound gorilla. Federal vs. State is like Mike Tyson vs. a 3 year old
toddler. Judge Lindberg had better have perfect records and perfect recall on
this one...this will be great entertainment!
