U.S. Judge Laurence Silberman of DC; Loony Old Codger


The state of Hawaii presented Laurence Hirsch Silberman with law license in 1961 after graduating from Harvard University Law School.


FYI: Larry was born in 1935, which means as of March 2021 he is an 86-year-old codger who refuses to leave the bench permanently.


Former President Reagan was duped into nominating Larry to a seat on the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit in 1988 Larry didn’t receive the appointment because he was the most qualified attorney available. He received it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.


In one matter, Larry was a member of a panel that presided over an appeal of a defamation lawsuit filed by two former Liberian officials against environmental group Global Witness. In a whiny, crybaby, loser dissent in the matter, Larry made the following hyperbolic (BS) statements.

  • “The increased power of the press is so dangerous today because we are very close to one-party control of these institutions.”
  • “Although the bias against the Republican Party—not just controversial individuals—is rather shocking today, this is not new; it is a long-term, secular trend going back at least to the ’70s….One-party control of the press and media is a threat to a viable democracy.”

Apparently, Larry the Bullshitter has no qualms about the garbage emanating from the Fox News Comedy Network that is and has been solely a sounding board for right-wing lunatics, purveyors of crazy conspiracies, and the chief enabler and apologist for former President Donald “Trumporleone” Trump.


Larry continued with his rant by slamming the New York Times and Washington Post as Democratic Party broadsheets. He then went and said:

  • “Nearly all television—network and cable—is a Democratic Party trumpet.”
  • “Even the government-supported National Public Radio follows along.”

In Larry’s fevered mind, right wing rags like the Washington Examiner, The National Review, The American Spectator and The Epoch times, just to mention a few are acceptable because they attack anyone that is a Democrat or has liberal views while at the same time acting as pimps for right wing loons.


As we speak (ca. April 2021), Larry continues to practice his so-called brand of jurisprudence even though he’s 90 years old. It appears that the only way that Larry will no longer remain on the bench is when he is removed and placed in a wooden box.
