Do Judges Lie to Juries? Ask One - When judges tell jurors they must take an "oath" to follow the judge's "instructions" on the law, please remember that judges simply lie to jurors. Also consider that since judges have given themselves absolute immunity from liability for their wrongful acts, they tend to become absolutely irresponsible. Strong words? Yes. Exaggeration or untrue? No.

The Judge as Lynch Mob By Ken Silverstein - Volume 12, Issue 8. May 1, 2001
As any student of the death penalty in America knows, the chance that a person charged with a capital crime will live or die depends greatly on race, social class, and--perhaps most important--where the alleged crime was committed. First and foremost is the question of whether the defendant comes to court in one of the 38 states where capital punishment is on the books. If he (or occasionally she) does, the outcome will differ greatly state by state and county by county, depending chiefly on the quality of the local defense bar, the trial judge, and the district attorney, who alone decides whether to seek capital punishment. For all these reasons, the odds on death are particularly high in Alabama, especially in the port town of Mobile, and most of all in the courtroom of Judge Ferrill McRae.

Oregon Judges - December 28, 2004 - What Is A Judge?s Oath? A Judges Oath/Oath of Office is a contract, an agreement with the people and public policy. An Oath is a statement or assertion made under penalty of divine retribution for intentional falsity. An Oath of Office is fealty to a sovereign, the obligation of public office and the ethical obligation of the Oath. The ethical obligations of learned professions are all assumed by their Oath/Oath of Office that shall be taken word for word, comma for comma, exactly as required in the Constitution. One of the principal functions of the Notary Public is administering the Oath/Oath of Office and the Oath is what judges are insured and bonded to uphold. Further, if the judge has served in the U.S. military, then he/she has taken an Oath/Oath of Office under Title 10 U.S.C. Section 502, where a he/she has subscribed to a lifetime Oath, in pertinent part, as follows: ?I__________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same...? Nobody is ever released from this oath, even upon discharge from military service.

Stop Bad Justice - December 10, 2004 - The mission of STOP BAD JUSTICE is twofold. First, to inform the public about the need for independent review of Federal Judicial misconduct allegations and, secondly, by way of public demand, mandate independent review of the misconduct allegations. Just over 20 years ago congress established through legislation a procedure to make misconduct allegations against Federal Judges. The result of the legislation can be found in 28 U.S.C 372(c). Unfortunately, for we citizens, the legislation has a major flaw. The evaluation of alleged judicial misconduct is done by the Judicial Council of the very same circuit as the judge who is the subject of the complaint works in. This methodology does not provide a proper independent review of an allegation. Federal judges, when accused of misconduct, should have the alleged misconduct evaluated by a forum, such as a grand jury, that is totally separate from the judiciary.
