Wall Street Analyst Paula Poskon Switches Gears To Claim A CEO's Ties To Child Abuse Are No Big Deal

Paula Poskon

A prominent Wall Street analyst recently expressed alarm about reports that the CEO of a company with a $380-million IPO has ties to cases of child abuse. The analyst promised to research the matter and said investors would be "very concerned" about such issues.

The same analyst changed her tune considerably in a followup conversation. Paula Poskon, of Robert W. Baird and Company,  essentially now says that child-abuse issues connected to Campus Crest Communities CEO Ted Rollins are no big deal, and investors aren't particularly concerned about them.

Poskon made it clear in my initial interview with her that she was genuinely concerned about reports that Rollins had been convicted for assault on his 16-year-old stepson, and two years earlier, had been the subject of an investigation for child sexual abuse of the same stepson. Upon learning about Rollins' documented ties to child abuse, Poskon audibly gasped and said, "Oh, my God."

Poskon also stated that she intended to look into the matter: "Oh, my God, I was not aware of any of that. . . . It certainly sounds like I need to do a lot more digging."

After sending Poskon copies of public documents and published reports about Rollins' ties to child abuse, and giving her an opportunity to digest the information, I had another conversation with her. This time, her stance was pretty much one of, "This is a personal matter involving Mr. Rollins, and it really doesn't concern us here on Wall Street." (See video at the end of this post.)

Why the dramatic change in tone? Do investors and Wall Street analysts really take such a cavalier approach to matters of child abuse, even in the wake of the headline-grabbing Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State?

We still are trying to sort out the answers to such questions. But the change in Paula Poskon's tone was unmistakable. And she left the distinct impression that she had no intention of conducting serious research on the matter.

This came after she earlier had acknowledged that the child-abuse issue was of particular concern because Campus Crest builds and manages student-housing complexes that are marketed to students near universities. In other words, Ted Rollins' primary market is young people--even though he has a documented history of abusive relationships with young people.

How might we summarize Paula Poskon's new stance on Ted Rollins' ties to child abuse? It's a matter of "he said/she said" and the simple fallout from "messy divorce proceedings"--"and a lot of executives have messy divorces."

Does Poskon now expect us to take her seriously on this, or any other, subject? We're not sure, but here are some nuggets from my followup conversation with her.

If issues related to child abuse don't matter to investors, what does attract their attention?

Let's just make a hypothetical: If one of my storage-company executives was arrested for drunk driving, or hurt somebody in a drunk-driving accident . . . or something like that, of course investors would view that very seriously and probably would look to the board to say, "How are you going to deal with this . . . ?"  
There are situations where executives are held accountable, where investors really care and the way they show they care is by walking with their feet—they sell their investments. But when things start to branch into personal lives, where it can be construed as "he said/she  said" or messy divorce proceedings, . . . to the extent where it's something recent and major--that the person’s ability to continue to execute their obligations as an executive of a public company were called into question--investors would be all over that. . . .  
But my sense is that when it gets into the grayer area of "he said/she said"—a lot of executives have had messy, ugly divorces . . . —investors are much more prone to draw a healthy line and distance.

So drunk driving is to be taken seriously, but child abuse is not? I noted to Poskon that such a stance was quite different from her original statements on the issue. I also noted that, aside from the child-abuse issues, public documents show that Ted Rollins lied under oath on a child-support document. That is recent, it goes to criminal conduct, and it goes to Ted Rollins' integrity--even if he hasn't been prosecuted for it, yet. Poskon hinted that investors care about criminal conduct only if someone is prosecuted for it:

If someone did (prosecute it), my guess is that investors would pay attention to that, but no one has, and we’re not in position to opine on the circumstances; only courts and appropriate authorities can do that. I think the investment community will err on the side of drawing a clear line between corporate and personal lives, where there is lot of ambiguity around the circumstances. . . . People, I think, are sort of, “Well, can’t infer too much from that because we don’t know the circumstances. . . . " 
But in a situation like I outlined, where a CEO demolishes his car for drunk driving, or is arrested for soliciting prostitution--something that is completely over the line of good judgment and moral turpitude and all the things we think about in terms of public-company officials? Would investors care? Of course, they would. But looking back and making a judgment from that vs. how the person is leading a company today . . . is probably a much bigger stretch for investors to make, and they probably would be unlikely to do that.

Now we know that drunk driving and soliciting prostitution are seen as bad, conduct that reflects badly on a executive's character. Child abuse and perjury? Ah,  not so much. Here's more from Poskon on the values of Wall Street:

Let me put it differently: I haven’t gotten any inbound calls. Nobody has called me and said, “Geez, I did a Google search and found all this stuff on this guy named Ted Rollins. What’s up with that . . . ?
I have the sense, with no scientific approach, just anecdotally . . . to the extent that anybody knows about any of this stuff, people apparently aren’t worried about it, or don’t care about it, or have appropriately discounted it in some fashion in their own views around investing in the stock.


Anonymous said...

What I heard Ms Poskon imply is investors DO google CEOs therefore many or at least some have probably read the info on Ted Rollins in Legal Schnauzer and most probably discounted what they read in this blog as more opinion than fact and a he said, she said situation resulting in her assessment being, "people apparently aren’t worried about it, or don’t care about it, or have appropriately discounted it in some fashion in their own views around investing in the stock".. Hard to argue with her assessment. Back to perception being king.

Wow! Welcome to the New World of opposites! She would have been better off shutting her bought and paid for mouth. Kids don't matter, money does! That's what she's saying and it mirrors our injustice system. I'm starting to wonder if kids have ever mattered. It's certainly not going to mirror the sentiments of society once the masses realize what is being thrust upon them by this crooked system made up of pedofiles! Those allowing it are worse than those committing the acts!

News media is never going to care about this sort of thing. They are the protectors of the abusers. The kids at these universities however may! If they get interested in seeing that child molesters no longer provide a roof over their heads, then a movement can happen. It wouldn't be unbelievable to see it turn into a Kent State like situation. If its going on across the nation then someone will listen. Boycott their housing facilities!

Zack Taylor said...

Most people don’t realize the full implications of child abuse in general because the media does such a poor job reporting on it; but it is a leading cause of authoritarianism and early development of violent behavior. This authoritarianism is often taught through intimidation tactics that start young and escalate so if this is a typical example there is a strong possibility that Ted Rollins was raised this way himself; and that this is how he learned to treat other people the same way. This probably isn’t uncommon among the leaders of many corporations since this characteristic is what enables them to control people; however the successful ones probably do a better job hiding it, at least most of the time. There is a strong possibility that they used similar intimidation tactics against Paula Poskon, although they probably didn’t involve physical violence; instead it is much more likely that they involved threats to her career which are also common in the business community.

Of course a lot of this is speculation, due to lack of details; however there has been an enormous amount of research into many of the aspects of this situation that might support these possibilities, although as I said the corporate press doesn’t do a good job reporting on this type of thing. They give a lot of air time to demagogues like Nancy Grace but little or none to the best researchers.

LS, you don't hear much of anything about the Kelly/Petraeus/Broadwell affairs now do you? The rich all have public relations experts/flunkies working for them; anything that effects the bottom line which is always cash, has to go, right?

Money talks; bullshit walks ....isn't that what they say?

Anonymous said...

Doesn't look like Ms Poskon did her research. Rollins was convicted of assault on his step son in 1995 correct? You reported on that in the past as well as on Oct 22, where you also reported Earl Howell stepped down as president and CEO of Campus Crest. Smells like another cover up is in the works.

The description of that assault made it clear that it was a serious medical issue seeing as the child was said to be in shock due to substantial blood loss correct? Seeing as the child had reportedly gone into shock tells people that he could very easily have died from that attack. Then he was also investigated for molesting same said child.

LS, aren't you curious to know what investors would actually have to say themselves about these matters? Why should Poskon be the one to speak for all? She's obviously a tool. Her statement where she said she currently (paraphrasing) was overseer of 18 companies, some bigger than Campus Crest and that she stood to gain up to 22 over next several months was telling.....$$$

There is very little decency left.

I think you fail to put this into the context of what Ms. Poskon said originally. Her original response was "Oh, my God!" and "investors will be very concerned about this" and "it's particularly concerning because Ted Rollins market is young people." In my view, those were her real responses. This second batch of responses came after she'd had time to communicate with someone--probably her boss and Ted Rollins--and try to cover up what she said the first time.

I think it's extremely easy to argue with her statements made here because this clearly is not a matter of "he said/she said." I've published documents to show that Ted Rollins did, in fact, assault his stepson and did, in fact, lie under oath to reduce his child support payments.

You are right on target. Ms. Poskon asked me to send her links to the pertinent posts, which I did. These posts include embedded public records showing the assault and other misconduct occurred. And yet, Ms. Poskon's response was that I'm "an opinion writer."

Ms. Poskon also said she was going to research the issue, and her research apparently was limited to calling Ted Rollins. She didn't actually research it at all.

I knew Mr. Rollins in the early 90's, I say he probably decided to sleep with her and shut her up. That is the way he used to take care of women who were out of line and making his life complicated. And if that doesn't work, a promotion can be arranged, more companies to manage added to her portfolio which she admitted to you in her video... And if all that doesn't work, a pay- off or a threat is the end resort.

You are a good listener and caught a very important point from Ms. Poskon. She cares very deeply about the portfolios she manages. Not sure if she wants more companies to track or maybe fewer--almost sounds like she has more work on her hands than she really wants. Perhaps she wants more of certain kinds of companies.

But I think you hit on something. She either was promised something or threatened with something.

Paula Poskon is not stupid. I could tell from my original interview that she is a sharp cookie. She had to know these most recent statements make her look stupid.

"... Bloomberg's Rich Yamarone:

.. Rich is a good friend (part of our occasional dining group) and a treasure trove of anecdotal insights and comments of CEOs and CFOs around the country.

.. Their companies range from the local to the multi-national.

.. Rich compiles the Bloomberg Orange Book monthly, reflecting the economy through those quotes and comments. He has a grueling speaking schedule as Kate drew out in the interview. Here's a bit that made me wince:

The fiscal cliff actually doesn't seem to be all that problematic. What is problematic is just that the economy is slowing and people are not coming to stores. The small retailers are saying customers are not coming into the stores. They don't have good traffic and they're losing a lot of sales to the internet.

The other thing that is actually quite disturbing is that – if I go give a speech to 400 or 500 people in a specific city, for instance a Chamber event, and it's a doom and gloom speech because I am a very big bear on the economy now – this is what has been happening:

Some people will always come up and say, "Hey, you know, I agreed with this, I disagreed with that." But lately they've been adding, "But you're 100% right, this economy is much weaker than anybody in the press is letting you know or leading you to believe."

And out of an audience of 400, I have recently been getting 25 to 40 people coming up to me after the event saying things like, "I didn't raise my hand because we're at an event where my competitors are sitting across the table from me and I didn't want to advertise this, but I'm folding my business after Christmas.

.. My name is on top of the 100-year-old, four generation family business, or a 75-year-old, third-generation business, and I have to shut the doors.

.. But I don't want to do it before Christmas because then I have to answer all these questions and I'm going to be an embarrassment to my family."

.. That's a very powerful statement.

"... Under further questioning from Kate, Rich maintains that he hears that lamentable refrain from a dozen or more folks at such speeches. That's not a pretty picture at all.

Paula Poskon went to the Wharton School of Business at the U of Pennsylvania. That's considered by many to be the finest business school in the country. It might be just a graduate school of business, not sure. Not sure where Ms. Poskon did her undergrad work; will check.

So Rollins does appear to be connected or rather he's good at working the system of thieves and pedofiles. I've been wondering why Campus Crest is flourishing in such a bad economy and why target the college/university population he has when enrollment at most are down from normal (being in part due to Title IV regulations being enacted). Why did the banks not steal Campus Crest assets as they've done with every other real estate developer over the last 4 years? There's something to this. And Ted fits the bigger agenda. He'll screw up though, they always do!

Thanks for sharing the CNBC video. In it, Ms. Poskon references the record number of high school graduates in 2009 as grounds for a positive outlook on student-housing REITs. The whole sector is built on demographics related to young people, but investors don't care about a CEO in the field with a documented history of child abuse? That's preposterous.

Ted Rollins has a record of child abuse in the 12-16 age range. But he markets his properties to kids (and their parents) who are just slightly older than that.

I appreciate Ms. Poskon giving me her time, too. I don't appreciate her efforts to get me to scuttle an on-the-record interview (and I will be writing more about that shortly) or questioning my credentials or motives, both of which she did in upcoming parts of our conversation.

As you will see, she made quite an effort to get me not to run her comments. I think that makes her look small and calls her own motives into question.

Hmmm..that's disappointing.Sounds more like fear to me. The good news is kinda sounds like she has just discovered how things really work. Maybe that means this type thinking isn't the norm. Or could be she now has a decision to make. Play the game or change professions. Wonder if she realistically has a third option.

And ask Robby about ethics courses taught in law school. Probably similar in business.

legalschnauzer said...

Yes, hope Rob weighs in on this. He always has great insight.

My impression is that ethics are taught in both law and business, but they often aren't absorbed. And if they are absorbed, higher ups in the real world have a way of helping the newbies unlearn that ethics stuff from college.

Both of those professions, I suspect, are filled with disillusioned people.

You know damn well when Joe Paterno and FOOTBALL was the most important and they allowed Sandusky to have his way with those children, well did that not tell you MONEY is more important than anything else. Did I read something that those children were offered up to some of the football sponsors or did I dream it? The reason I am bringing this up is Ms. Poskon is turning her face to Rollins. You know why.. Money is more important to folks that what is going on with a child. After all they will grow up and forget it..YEA RIGHT.. that kind of stuff never goes away and I have taken up for Mrs.Rollins from day one but what I do not understand is why when the psychiatrist told her what was going on and gave her that book to read why in hell did she not go to the authorities. It makes me feel like she overlooked it because of the benefits she received from being a ROLLINS.. That may be the furtherest from the truth but what I am saying something inorder to have the luxuries of the world we are willing to sacrifice other to get it.. So of course Ms. Poskon is more interested in money and I wonder how much she was paid by the family to change her mind. Just a thought.

I googled Ted Rollins just to see what came up.. TedRollins.org I think was the first and all your articles next. You'd have to be stupid or not give a s*** to not see it .. I'd think twice about him and his company. I heard something at work one time.. I shook it off as gossip.. NO WAY was this true.. my very smart boss told me.."Always remember where there is smoke there definately has been a fire." Ok NO THIS WAS NOT True.. Guess what.. Not only was it true what I heard it was much more worse than I originally heard. Pretty big fire.. So there has to be some truth in what you have been told and investors really need to find out about this.

You did not dream the report about children being offered to high-level Penn State boosters. Here is a link to one report on the subject:

LS, Radar Online broke that story back in August . . .


legalschnauzer said...

I believe PA journalist Mark Madden might have been the first to report on a possible sex ring involving Sandusky and wealthy Penn State donors.

The Radar Online piece seems to be the first substantiated report on that front. Ugly stuff:

Anonn at 4:32--

There's no doubt it's true, and it's not just a matter of what I've been told. Yes, everything Sherry Rollins stated in extensive interviews has proven true. But public documents back it up. So yes, it's true and, yes, investors need to know about it.

Anonymous said...

You don't have to listen to Paula Poskon long to learn she is well educated. And yet she shrugs off child abuse in the interest of protecting a privileged guy like Ted Rollins?

That says a lot about what's wrong with our country at the moment. We're a bunch of educated fools--smart on the surface, but weak on core values.

If you were so brilliant as you want everyone to think then you would know this isn't an issue of party politics! They are all the same! You drank the kool aid and throw out snazzy yet goofy lingo and it's rather on track but misguided. You are almost there though. Keep digging! Although getting your education from the History channel and movies won't do the trick!



"Me thinks the lady doth protest too much." You don't know this quote's hero though, COWBOY, cause you don't actually have anything to say other than the same ole BS the GOP are exactly LIKE what you spew about what it really is, or isn't, with or without a point you rant and rave.

Criminally insane troll blogs and sound just as you do so keep up the good work, COWBOY RACIST, you only prove to the blog owners and the bloggers what your agenda is, to make certain the people are believing the COWBOY RACISTS [CIA, FBI, ET AL] AROUND SOUND.


Christmas Grinch? Or just the same ole pretend education from the www, to bring more of the same story - wants are needs and needs are wants and you want to be seen as the biggest voice at LS.

Why is David Rockefeller, the REAL US President, now in decline?

Who is David Rockefeller?

Is he a pedophile?

How long has David Rockefeller been the actual US President?

Does COWBOY RACIST know DR personally and here to make certain the LS readership is unawares of how high the pedophile ring actually circles the American drain and COWBOY RACIST is one of the most loyal to DR?



Study the reality of American POLITICS AS A PARTY, the GOP, that is David Rockefeller ET AL, run the country.

AMERICA HAS BEEN RUN BY THE FAMILY ROCKEFELLER since the 1800s, AND David Rockefeller IS THE standard for US, cause he IS the #1 pedophile and the US President Defacto since the Kennedy assassination, yep COWBOY RACIST the truth does hurt.

OH AND IN CLOSING CR, PLEASE STUDY ON THE WWW BRIAN GERRISH. This should assist in your ed for the new words to spew.

"... Bradley Manning, a member of the US military, complied with his oath of office, with the US Military Code, with the Nuremberg standards set by the US government, with the strictures expressed by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the George W, Bush administration, and with his own conscience. Manning, allegedly (we will never know), released to WikiLeaks the video of the US military murdering two journalists and a dozen innocent people walking down a street.

.. After the murder of these people by the US military playing video games with live people, a father with two young children stopped his van to help the survivors crawling in the street. The US military, due to either blood-lust, incompetence, or total evil, killed the father and sent high caliber bullets into the bodies of the two small children.


"... The presstitute media was silent.

.. Glenn Greenwald, the constitutional attorney, concludes that “the US establishment journalists have enabled the government every step of the way.” The presstitutes hold “themselves out as adversarial watchdogs, but nothing provokes their animosity more than someone who effectively challenges government actions.”

.. Greenwald praises Bradley Manning who “has bestowed the world with multiple vital benefits. But as his court martial finally reaches its conclusion, one likely to result in the imposition of a long prison term, it appears his greatest gift is this window into America’s political soul.”

.. The window into America’s political soul reveals total evil. The US government constitutes Satan’s Chosen People. Nothing else can be said for those who rule and oppress us.



When Bradley Manning is our mirror we don't need any other reflection to see how sick We The People ALL ARE, or we would not be blogging, but indeed we would be writing so many letters this would not happen at LS, but in Washington DC AND that would not be fair to the great journalists.

Think I'll continue COWBOY RACIST to share here at LS, MORON is a word and not the most intelligent use of the English language.

LS, it occurred to me that you need to do some book reviews.

COWBOY RACIST did a very fine rant and rave about THE BLOB, which says this troll, CR, does not want any reader to read at your blog, that is, read about a book review or book, to become "smart."

Meters in America can be "smart," so why not We The People, too!

Jeff Connaughton's book and Neil Barofsky's too, great reviews for you to do and then a translation in Mandarin. World Class and scare the trolls right back under the earth's core where they belong.

Bye bye COWBOY RACIST so the readers at LS can turn the world in the palms of their hands and watch your troll non informed non reader twist and turn in the earth's core like a good worm~tongue deserves.

LS, again the SMART idea must be ON your blog, however reading AT the www is not smart.

But, reading the journalists that do what you do and what globalresearch does IS smart and no COWBOY RACIST can steal the trolling "smart" and "spirit" your readers' "souls" into the dark agendas anymore, cause the readers at your site can get the real news and also, when readers also read real books as well as ...

"... By far the most valuable of these associations, according to CIA officials, have been with the New York Times, CBS and Time Inc. The CIA even ran a training program “to teach its agents to be journalists,” who were “then placed in major news organizations with help from management.”

.. These types of relationships have continued in the decades since, although perhaps more covertly and quietly than before. For example, it was revealed in 2000 that during the NATO bombing of Kosovo, “several officers from the US Army’s 4th Psychological Operations (PSYOPS) Group at Ft. Bragg worked in the news division at CNN’s Atlanta headquarters.” This same Army Psyop outfit had “planted stories in the U.S. media supporting the Reagan Administration’s Central America policies,” which was described by the Miami Herald as a “vast psychological warfare operation of the kind the military conducts to influence a population in enemy territory.” These Army PSYOP officers also worked at National Public Radio (NPR) at the same time. The US military has, in fact, had a strong relationship with CNN.

The EyeOpener- What is Money?

Tuesday, 4. December 2012 by Sibel Edmonds

In this age of panic over the sovereign debt crisis and the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling negotiations, we are bombarded with talk of government money printing and images of the printing press, but how many people know that only a tiny fraction of money in the economy is actually in the form of bills or coins? And if money isn’t, for the most part, literally printed into existence, then where does it come from?

In a system where money is created by bankers out of our own promise to pay them back, at interest, it is self-evidently always the case that more and more of the hard assets and real value of the economy will be transferred from the working, productive classes to the financial speculators at the top of the system who literally create the money and toy with the credit that is our economy’s lifeline. Given all of this, is it at all surprising that we have arrived at this situation where economic crises are followed by multi-trillion dollar bailouts of financial institutions while more and more people fall into debt, foreclosure and unemployment?

It is enough to note that at times it is the simplest questions that turn out to be the most difficult for many to answer, and if we are being told not to ask such questions as what money is or where it comes from, perhaps there is a reason that the powers that be don’t want these questions being contemplated.

Someone earlier mentioned UN Agenda 21. Governor Bentley (reluctantly) made Alabama the first to ban this one world communist agenda. Why are more people not aware that GHW Bush signed our lives away back in 1992? This is why banks have been stealing property from citizens with the intention of moving all out of suburbs and into the cities like rats. As the above commenter said, they plan on making the US population
500,000 by 2025. Obamacare will undoubtedly be instrumental in that endeavor.

When Bently signed this law it said no government agency without due process can take property rights however so far it's been private groups, companies and nonprofits doing the dirty work. Doesn't look like we've been protected from this inevitable stripping of our rights.
The ICLEI is locally pushing this agenda and it's being bought hook line and sinker. Sustainable developement, clean energy ect are their guise for ramming this communism up our whoohas. Thoughts?

anon 12/5/12 @9:27am, ICLEI

~~ yes thank you so much for bringing the acronym in here at LS.

"... ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability : Homepage
ICLEI is an international association of local governments and their associations that have made a commitment to sustainable development...."

AGENDA 21, is the same agenda as colonialism that is as old as the word armies themselves.

Call it Orwellian or call it what it is in these times: EUGENICS.

Microsoft and Google and name a BIG name that is not in, Agenda 21, Ted Turner and the NEWS services he provides WITH HIS FIVE CHILDREN AS HEIRS, sells Agenda 21, because the planet has too many people.

Too many people came because the NEWS SELLS EXPANSION, and then the CONTRACTION is because the MONEY BETS BOTH WAYS.

Just found this:

"... RT: You blew the whistle on the agency when George W. Bush was the president. With President Obama in office, in your opinion, has anything changed at the agency, in the surveillance program? In what direction is this administration moving?

.. WB: The change is it’s getting worse. They are doing more. He is supporting the building of the Bluffdale facility, which is over two billion dollars they are spending on storage room for data. That means that they are collecting a lot more now and need more storage for it. That facility by my calculations that I submitted to the court for the Electronic Frontiers Foundation against NSA would hold on the order of 5 zettabytes of data. Just that current storage capacity is being advertised on the web that you can buy. And that’s not talking about what they have in the near future.

ICLEI and ALL THE AGENDAS need to get in front of the SUPREME COURT.

The ways and means, in my opinion, to get the multiple agendas in the US ["culling the herd"] MUST BE PETITIONS TO THE "SUPREMES," TO CEASE DESIST STOP.

The Supreme Court cannot ignore the violations to the U.S. Constitution ~NUMBERS OF DEMANDING US CITIZENS ~"UP THE ANTE," my understanding of our REAL GOOD LAW "due process."


"... RT: You have received the Callaway award for civic courage. Congratulations! On the website and in the press release it says: “It is awarded to those, who stand out for constitutional rights and American values at great risk to their personal or professional lives.” Under the code of spy ethics – I don’t know if there is such a thing – your former colleagues, they probably look upon you as a traitor. How do you look back at them?

.. WB: That’s pretty easy. They are violating the foundation of this entire country. Why this entire government was formed? It’s founded with the Constitution and the rights were given to the people in the country under that Constitution. They are in violation of that. And under executive order 13526, section 1.7 – you can not classify information to just cover up a crime, which this is, and that was signed by President Obama. Also President Bush signed it earlier as an executive order, a very similar one. If any of this comes into Supreme Court and they rule it unconstitutional, then the entire house of cards of the government falls.

.. RT: What are the chances of that? What are the odds?

.. WB: The government is doing the best they can to try to keep it out of court. And, of course, we are trying to do the best we can to get into court. So, we decided it deserves a ruling from the Supreme Court. Ultimately the court is supposed to protect the Constitution. All these people in the government take an oath to defend the Constitution. And they are not living up to the oath of office.
