From the April 2007 Idaho Observer:

Of gooses and ganders: Bush removes judicial immunity; judge executed for ruling unjustly

On January 15, 2007, Iraqi Judge Awad Hammad al-Bandar was executed, setting a precedent that judges are universally responsible when they use their courts corruptly to destroy human life. President G.W. Bush, the U.S. Court of Appeals, (Washington D.C), and the U.S. Supreme Court approved of the execution.

Reversed is the immunity which the U.S. Supreme Court granted judges, even when acting with "vile motive" in 1976, which was extended to all prosecutors in 1993, (See Imbler v. Pachtman 96 S.CT 984, and Buckley v. Firtzsimmons 113s.ct 2606).

California and Idaho placed measures on their state ballots to enforce some level of accountability upon arrogant judges who disregard the very law they swore to uphold. Judges have used court rulings to murder their fellow Americans and pimp children. Due to lack of public awareness, these measures were defeated.

To date, the American public, an otherwise law abiding people, have agreed their Judges and prosecutors should remain above the law, and cannot be tried for the crimes they commit while in office, no matter how heinous. Not even by a civil suit.

To create this new law, which removed judicial accountability, the U.S. Supreme Court reversed a Congressional Enactment of 1871, using satanically bizarre reasoning. Dishonorably, it lacks authority to reverse Congress, unless something is unconstitutional. The only "reason" given here was a ludicrous, unsupported lie that Americans would prefer judges to be criminals. Read the cases cited.

Judge al-Bandar was found guilty of upholding the validity of laws which were equivalent to the Patriot Act, Homeland Security, and the AEDPA. They were enacted by the Iraqi legislature when controlled by the Baathist Party and signed into law by Iraq’s President Saddam Hussein, leader of that party.

Governments have forgotten that for something to be recognized as a "right" it must be shared by all and evenly enforced by all courts. Unevenly enforcing any "right" for political reasons proves that some of us are more equal than others under the "law."

U.S. courts claimed al-Bandar was "outside U.S. custody" to deny relief, yet a Stay of Execution was granted earlier by the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 27, 2006. This stay was dutifully obeyed by the current puppet regime, which exists only because of the presence of U.S. tanks, warplanes, and ground troops. The need to support this puppet regime is, in fact, the very excuse presented when requesting more money for perpetuating the Bush military occupation in Iraq, not battle insurgents or support U.S. collaborators who simply obey all U.S. orders for the money.

And there is no exit strategy. Obedience to U.S. orders is mandatory, seemingly forever. Many observe that the only difference between the Baathist and Republican Parties is that the Baathists only tortured their political opponents at Abu Ghraib, Republicans use Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, and franchise this task out to other countries including Syria, Turkey and Morocco. G.W. Bush derives great gratification from inflicting torture. For his nation, of course. Saddam Hussein did too. For his nation, of course. One wonders if it is videotaped for private viewing.

Now that judges can once again be held responsible for using their courtrooms to commit illegal acts, it will eventually become possible to enforce judicial accountability even in America.
