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Much of the sensational reporting on Feldman’s investments was based on outdated information.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…

    My guess is that the death threats came from the Gulf fishermen and tourism business owners, they are the ones being hurt the worst. BP and its defenders are wiping out a way of life int eh Gulf.

    Well let’s see, shall we?

    BP was forced to submit a disaster plan using data that was not accurate. That data was forced on them by the government.

    Thirteen nations offered assistance 3 days after the accident. BP accepted and offered to pay for the costs. The government turned every country down.

    Local counties asked BP to pay for sand cleaning machines to keep the beaches clean. The government refused to allow the machines and offered no reason as to why.

    Miles and miles of containment booms sat idle in Alaskan warehouses even though the states were screaming for more booms. The government decided not to use the MAC to airlift the booms to the Gulf.

    The administration was informed of a Maine company that was actively making booms. The government at first denied knowing about the company until the two Maine Senators stepped up and said they had sent letters to the Administration and also directly to the Coast Guard about the booms.

    Berms that were initially approved were suddenly un-approved by the Feds.

    The list goes on and on and on. BP is responsible for the spill.

    The government is responsible for allowing the spill to get as bad as it has gotten.

    As a friend of mine said, “if people thought Bush hated black people, Obama hates white beaches.”

  4. I believe the temporary moratorium was to make sure that oil rigs were inspected to be safe to drill. That sounds pretty reasonable considering what we have now.
    *The Gulf of Mexico oil spill has caused numerous controversies and also this new decision is probably going to cause more. A drilling moratorium was overturned by a judge, likely to cause a lot of uproar. The moratorium that was overturned more or less says that we will continue off shore drilling in our country. There are numerous off shore drilling projects which were already within the works that were pulled when this spill happened, they will be able to continue work. The rumor is that offshore drilling is not going anywhere soon and the BP should have taken better safety measures. Oil tycoon’s are to wealthy to stop from eventually getting the oil they really want; in the end they don’t need cash advances to expand their projects.
