"I shall not counsel or maintain any suit or
proceeding which shall appear to me to be unjust,
nor any defense except such as I believe to be
honestly debatable under the law of the land."

    I'm not quite sure how to rate this. The criminal mental disorder and unjust tyranny that has replaced the de jure "law of the land" is exacerbated by the American Bar Association. The Bar's mandated membership is grossly antithetical to inalienable rights, the "laws of nature and of nature's God (natural law / Constitutional law of the land), honesty and justice. The solemn troth into the felonious cabal is but an illicit subterfuge. The American Bar Association's only defensive activities seem to be in promoting the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land.

    Through fear and retaliation the "progressive bench" flexes its muscle, a den of thieves and pit of vipers, contrary to constitutional restraints. But now the battle line shifts for the sake of Commonsense, Constitutional Conservative Appointments to the bench. MAGA is on the march. And We the People know it.
    The quote is of no worth unless observed through practice.

    I wonder if this is still said or did they change it.i would have given this a rating of toilet paper, if it was there. This is the same way they revere the Law of the Land

    What a laughable oath; everyone knows what a crooked lot it is whom rule tthe bar.

    Acting sanctimonious, as though they all upheld the highest level of moral scrutiny, is a grotesque insult to the citizenry they mock and fleece.

    When law-yers start practicing rightful honest common-sense jurisprudence AND NOT participating in this elite and exclusive immoral quagmire of crooked legalese wrangling, perhaps society may someday accept them as decent equals and not predatory destroyers.

    A noble ideal, unattained by most, attainable only by those in whom Virtue inheres.

    In this faithless day, in the sights of many, perhaps a plurality, oaths exist to be wantonly broken.
