This woman should be tossed into prison. She took an oath to serve and protect the Constitution, yet violates it in her own "Dummycrat" way! When you are elected or appointed to this seat, politics are to remain outside the chambers. Her recent ruling on gun control and gun laws in Maryland proves that she doesn't know anything. I spend my summers in Maryland and consider it my home away from home. It pains me very deeply to see a moron like this on the seat of one of the most important courts in the land. Step down please -- you don't deserve to wear that robe.

We the people, who are the real government, will be watching your deeds, madam, not your words, as you are unconstitutional.

Reluctantly I have come to the conclusion that Judge Blake is a lazy jurist who has lost her ability at independent thought. Very sad. Most of her opinions these days are intellectually dishonest. On a brighter note, she is pleasant in the courtroom.

She is thoughtful, hard working and gets what it means to be a trial judge. I am thrilled to have her in civil cases, regardless of side, but in criminal cases, she definitely leans toward the government.

Everything a great judge should be, and a pleasure to appear before. She is fair, even-handed, smart, conscientious and polite. Win or lose, you know you'll get a fair shake with Judge Blake.
