U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman: Overturns Moratorium and Receives Death Threats for Following the Law

This morning, KOOK brought your attention to the leftist/Obama attempt to take adavantage of the gulf oil spill. I'm pointing you to perhaps the first FDR era-esque pushback from massive Federal power grabs from the Leviathan. His name is Judge Martin L.C. Feldman and he's not backing down from his ruling to lift the moratorium on drilling:

The Interior Department had petitioned Judge Martin L.C. Feldman late Wednesday to grant a stay of his decision, which lifted a ban on new drilling projects and on work on the 33 rigs already in place in the gulf.

But Feldman said he was denying the delay for the same reasons he gave for his decision Tuesday: that the moratorium was doing "irreparable harm" to the businesses in the gulf that depend on drilling activity and that the government had not given sufficient basis for the moratorium.

The Republic lives as does perhaps limits on an all-powerful, extra-constitutional executive branch. Nevertheless, for striking down 'Hugo' Obama's knee jerk moratorium, Judge Martin L.C. Feldman has had to face that which the far-left does best - violent intimidation when things don't go their way:

New Orleans--While many Americans undoubtedly agree with the decision of U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman to overturn the Obama administration’s moratorium on deep water drilling, not everyone is happy. In fact, the Judge is now receiving death threats in the aftermath of his bold ruling.

Last night, Feldman served as a celebrity judge at a cooking contest at a school gymnasium in Uptown New Orleans. Due to the threats, Feldman was accompanied by a federal marshal security team.

It is a sad indictment of our society today that a judge with such a sterling record of integrity and service to his country would be subject to such threats. Feldman was appointed to the federal bench by President Reagan in 1983. Today, he is in the eye of a political hurricane unlike anything he has ever experienced.
It is a sad, pathetic indictment of our society that Judge Feldman would have to fear for his life by basically following the letter of the law. Perhaps though, it is not surprising considering that we have a 'community organizer' sitting in the Oval Office.

The violent left is just taking community-agitating to it's logical conclusion. God Bless and protect Judge Martin L.C. Feldman and those of us that stand up to the mob, for the rule of law and the Constitution.
