This has to be the most corrupt administration in the history of our republic. I’m sure you recall the case against the New Black Panthers, who were wielding weapons at a Philadelphia polling place and intimidating voters. You probably also recall that Barack Obama and Eric Holder’s Department of Justice dropped the case against those thugs, even though it would have been a slam dunk for the prosecution.
Now we hear from someone from the inside of the Justice Department. J. Christian Adams is an attorney who has resigned because of this case and the corruption within the DOJ. He wrote all about it in The Washington Times. You have to read the whole thing, but here’s a preview.
Based on my firsthand experiences, I believe the dismissal of the Black Panther case was motivated by a lawless hostility toward equal enforcement of the law. Others still within the department share my assessment. The department abetted wrongdoers and abandoned law-abiding citizens victimized by the New Black Panthers. The dismissal raises serious questions about the department’s enforcement neutrality in upcoming midterm elections and the subsequent 2012 presidential election.
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has opened an investigation into the dismissal and the DOJ’s skewed enforcement priorities. Attorneys who brought the case are under subpoena to testify, but the department ordered us to ignore the subpoena, lawlessly placing us in an unacceptable legal limbo.
There’s no reason to believe Adams isn’t telling the truth. Even Eric Holder admitted under oath that there’s no equality under the hate crimes bill. (Via Ironic Surrealism)
Maggie’s Notebook summed up the actions of the corrupt members of the DOJ quite nicely.
1) The dismissal of the Black Panther case “was motivated by a lawless hostility toward equal enforcement of the law.”
2) Some in the Department “abetted wrongdoers and abandoned law-abiding citizens victimized by the New black Panthers.
3) Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, Tom Perez “inaccurately” testified to the House Judiciary Committee
4) “Most corrupt of all, the lawyers who ordered the dismissal – Loretta King, the Obama-appointed acting head of the Civil Rights Division, and Steve Rosenbaum….
5) Some inside Justice say this is an isolated incident, but other similar cases happened at polling places in Philadelphia, including one targeting Hillary Rodham Clinton. Adams says “the law clearly prohibits even isolated incidents of voter intimidation.
6) The evidence shows that voters were affected by intimidation, but even if it didn’t, the law demands punishment of “an attempt.”
7) Some co-workers argued the law should not be used against black wrongdoers because of the long history of slavery and segregation. “Some called it payback time.”
She also reminds us at that Bartle Bull, a civil rights activist, was at the Philadelphia polling place on the day the Black Panthers were blatantly intimidating voters. Nobody in the DOJ even bothered to interview the man.
In case you missed it, the Black Panther thugs were caught on video.
So much for blind justice in the United States. We may as well be a Banana Republic.
