Left-Wing Lawyer Who Founded the Modern Buckley-Based Conservative Movement Defends Obama
The most famous defection from the Buckley wing of the conservative movement was Garry Wills. That was in the late 1960s. But there was another, less famous: a lawyer who reversed course in the 1990s.
Yesterday, I received an email from him. It was a response to my article on Obama.
I am an attorney licensed in both the District of Columbia and Texas. I am admirer of your daily writings, many of which I find invaluable.
However, my research indicates that the two Obamas properly and voluntarily surrendered their Illinois law licenses upon his being elected President. Had they not done so they would have been subject to criticism.
They were not sanctioned in any way by the Illinois Bar.
If they had done anything wrong while practicing law before his being elected in 2008, don’t you think the Republicans on the House and Senate Judiciary Committees would be howling to the moon about it? Their silence on the issue speaks volumes about the truth of the matter.
This is a classic lawyer’s final statement to the jury, presented by a lawyer who is clearly losing his case. It contains a desperation move, one deliberately calculated to deceive the jury.
It is odd that he sent it to me. I am the prosecuting attorney.
Can you spot the deception? I will give you a hint. I wrote in my article:
They got to the top socially by getting certified by way of Columbia University, Princeton University, and law school. They had it made. And then . . . whammo! No more law degrees. No more certification. They had learned to manipulate academia, but they failed to manipulate the Illinois Bar Association. First, it was Michelle in 1994. Then Obama in 2008. The mainstream media have of course covered this up, but Google uncovers it.
Now can you see it?
