OK, How much is right and how much is wrong?
« on: August 13, 2012, 09:26:05 PM »
  I knew they had both lost their law license, but I didn't know why
  until I read this.

  This is 100% legit. I check it out at https://www.iardc.org/ Stands for
  Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It's the
  official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois; and they are very strict
  and mean as hell. (Talk about irony.) Even I, at the advanced age of
  almost 65, maintain (at the cost of approximately $600/year) my law
  license that I worked so hard and long to earn.
  Big surprise.

  Former Constitutional Law Lecturer and U.S. President Makes Up
  Constitutional Quotes During State Of The Union (SOTU) Address.

  Consider this:
  1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is
  no longer a "lawyer". He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order
  to escape charges he lied on his bar application. A "Voluntary
  Surrender" is not something where you decide "Gee, a license is not
  really something I need anymore, is it?" and forget to renew your
  license. No, a "Voluntary Surrender" is something you do when you've
  been accused of something, and you 'voluntarily surrender" your license
  five seconds before the state suspends you.

  2 Michelle Obama "voluntarily surrendered" her law license in 1993
  after a Federal Judge gave her the choice between surrendering her
  license or standing trial for Insurance fraud!

  3. So, we have the first black President and First Lady - who don't
  actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.

  4. A senior lecturer is one thing, a fully ranked law professor is
  another. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law Professor at the
  University of Chicago.

  5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March 2008 saying
  Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) "served as a professor" in the law
  school-but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time,
  never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

  6. "He did not hold the title of Professor of Law," said Marsha
  Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in
  Law at the University of Chicago School of Law.


  7. The former Constitutional Senior Lecturer (Obama) cited the U.S.
  Constitution the other night during his State of the Union Address.
  Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of
  Independence ... not the Constitution.

  8. The B-Cast posted the video:

  9. Free Republic: In the State of the Union Address, President Obama
  said: "We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the
  promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all
  created equal.

  10. Um, wrong citing, wrong founding document there Champ, I mean Mr.
  President. By the way, the promises are not a notion, our founders
  named them unalienable rights. The document is our Declaration of
  Independence and it reads:

  We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created
  equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
  Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

  11. And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court moments
  later in the same speech?

  When you are a phony it's hard to keep facts straight.
  Keep this moving -- educate others.
