Fed Up With Govt Misconduct, Federal Judge Takes Nuclear Option

Federal Prosecutor Alleges Boss Pressured Him To Engage in 'Unethical Conduct'; Judge Calls Abuses 'Egregious,' 'Pervasive,” and “Reprehensible”

Judge Morrison C. England Jr.

Judge Morrison C. England Jr. ordered the entire judiciary recused from a case another judge called “egregious” and “reprehensible”

In perhaps the most stunning documentation yet of abuses by Eric Holder’s Justice Department, two former Assistant United States Attorneys spoke to defense attorneys and revealed appalling deceit and corruption of justice. This latest litigation time bomb has exploded from multi-million dollar litigation originally brought by the Department of Justice against Sierra Pacific based on allegations that the lumber company and related defendants were responsible for a wildfire that destroyed 65,000 acres in California.

In what was dubbed the “Moonlight Fire” case, the tables are now turned. The defendants have discovered new evidence and filed a stunning motion. The new evidence and disclosures are being taken seriously by the Chief Judge of the Eastern District of California—as they should be. In a shocking action, Judge Morrison C. England Jr. ordered the recusal of every federal judge in the Eastern District of California.

Sierra Pacific Industries and other defendants were compelled to pay $55 million to the United States over a period of five years and transfer 22,500 acres of land to settle massive litigation brought against them by the United States alleging that they caused a 2007 fire that destroyed 65,000 acres in California. Sierra Pacific has always maintained that the fire started elsewhere and that the state and federal investigators and Department attorneys lied. Now that settlement may go up in smoke because of the new evidence of outrageous misconduct by the federal prosecutors and the investigators from state and federal offices, as well as findings earlier this year by a state judge.

In an extraordinary development, Judge England, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, ordered the recusal of all the Eastern District judges from the case because of serious allegations that the Court itself was defrauded by the government in the original prosecution. To avoid any appearance of partiality, he has referred the case to Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski to appoint a judge from outside the Eastern District to handle the case going forward. Judge Kozinski has excoriated prosecutors for failing to meet their legal and ethical obligations.

The order notes that the defendants filed an action this week to set aside the $55 million settlement because, as the defendants allege, “the United States presented false evidence to the Defendants and the Court; advanced arguments to the Court premised on that false evidence; or, for which material evidence had been withheld, and obtaining court rulings based thereon; prepared key Moonlight Fire investigators for depositions, and allowed them to repeatedly give false testimony about the most important aspects of their investigation; and failed to disclose the facts and circumstances associated with the Moonlight Fire lead investigator’s direct financial interest in the outcome of the investigation arising from an illegal bank account that has since been exposed and terminated.”

Now who do we believe. The Govt or Sierra Pacific.

I damm sure don't believe the Federal Government. Every word out of Obama or any of his cronies mouth is nothing but a lie.

Hmm, let me see. The government said that we could keep our health plans (a lie), our premiums would go down an average of $2500 (a lie, they are going up by that much), Ebola wouldn't come the the U.S. (it did), we can stop Ebola in it's tracks (we didn't), our Southern Border is more secure than ever (it's a sieve), Benghazi occurred because of a video (another lie) and other lies ad infitum. If I were betting, my money would be on Sierra Pacific. 

My vote is for Serra Pacific. The government is no longer deserving trust of any kind.

We can blame the govt for so many lies,etc., but it is the VOTERS that are to blame. They cannot vote for anyone but a party member (liberal-democrat).

Turning the matter over to the Ninth Circus will prove to be another travesty.  These BOZOs have no idea what the word "justice" means.

Just another money & land grab. Just ask farmers, ranchers, & the states what the feds are up to.

    Just this issue by itself should force the DOJ to be purged of the likes of Holder and all top management and a Bi-Partisan group of Senators used to monitor and take over it's functions until it can be reorganized and made effective again . Plus all documents needed by Congress to do it's investigative work should be secured and supplied to each committee as needed . 

Where are the orders to investigate and INDICT the judges and prosecutors who acted illegally in this matter?  It is not enough to recuse them there must be indictments for any laws broken, including disbarment proceedings for unethical conduct.

Congress should take the matter under advisement and begin investigation to impeach any justices that acted improperly.

There was a time when we could trust the Government/Courts and Congress to do the jobs they were hired by vote to do. Sadly,that has all changed.

The only way I see to correct that condition of CORRUPTION, is to RID OURSELVES of those who are the seed of this corruption, starting at the top of the chain - THE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS WHO ARE IN CHARGE OF GIVING ORDERS - the entire Obama Administration.

The Democrats (esp. Harry Reid and company) and those of both sides that supported by voting in support of Obamas' directives, MUST BE HELD RESPONSIBLE TO THE AMERICANS WHO VOTED THEM IN OFFICE.That goes double for the Courts and Congress!

If they have been "re-elected" this year or for this term, they must prove that their voting record was coerced by Nancy Pelosi/Harry Reid/ John Boehner, et. al,.It should be held for a "re-call" vote.

I BELIEVE FIRST IN GOD and secondly I BELIEVE IN AMERICANS to stand by our convictions upon which this country was founded and has fought for survival.

Congress can't even muster the courage to impeach the head of the Justice Dept. that is encouraging this type of illegal behavior. I agree that the judges should be impeached, prosecuted, etc., but I'm pessimistic about it ever happening. The only bright spot in this sorry episode is the integrity shown by Judge England.

I say it is the voters fault.  They keep re-electing the same crooks into office. Not only are the govt people to blame !

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
