Skip to comments.Abu-Jamal supporters meet, to seek White House help
Posted on 04/12/2009 10:43:22 AM PDT by pissant
Stung by the U.S. Supreme Court ruling last week denying a new trial for Mumia Abu-Jamal, supporters of the internationally known death-row inmate met yesterday at a church in West Philadelphia and said they planned to seek some type of presidential intervention on his behalf.
The gathering of about 50 people, led by MOVE member Pam Africa, began signing a petition to present to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., asking for action in the 28-year-old case, in which Abu-Jamal was convicted of murdering Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner.
They also said they would ask Rep. Chaka Fattah to take their plea to President Obama and his wife, Michelle, both lawyers.

At this point, I say free him.
It’s about time vigilantes make a comeback in this country.

Death row for 28 years? That ain’t death row, it’s a permanent home.
Pam Africa, Eric H. Holder Jr., Rep. Chaka Fattah, nobama, Michelle nobama, Darby Tillis...
Any white folks involved here? Oh, wait, that’s right, the VICTIM was white, Daniel Faulkner.
Seems awfully racist to me.
Join Allan Keyes at the Million Man March Sept.12-13
Anti-Obama organizations are being united at Freedoms First
for a million man march on Washington.
The permit is secured- AND ALREADY OVER HALF A MILLION AMERICANS HAVE SIGNED UP!
This is the only way we will ever get the attention of our elected officials the MSM and the masses- protest!
From the FreedomsFirst website:
We are moving forward on our rally in Washington D C.
We are working non stop in preparations for this historical event to be held Sept 12-13 2009 at the Lincoln Memorial Reflections pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial.
As for the time, The million man march that took place a few years age took over 2 years to organize, we are trying to push this through as fast as we can.
To protest in DC you have to have a permit and have approval to use a certain piece of land.
We called ahead of filing for these things. September 12 &13 were the next available days they had.
The other organization, resistnet.com, which was putting together a march for May 30, didnt do this so they were refused their permit. Now they are joining with our group. So, we are doing this absolutely as soon we can.
To have a successful march takes time and organization.
Why are we protesting ?
1. To get the attention of the mainstream media.
2. To demand That Obama Provide proof that he is eligible to be president.
3. To demand that Congress and the Supreme court uphold our constitution.
4. To inform the public on the issue of Obamas ineligibility to be president of the USA.
5. To demand that they can not take our constitutional rights away.
PRESIDENT OBAMA, WE DEMAND THAT YOU BE TRANSPARENT NOW
We will come together in a peaceful rally.
We are proud Americans who fear that we are losing the America we all know and love.
The America where millions have served in our military sacrificing their lives so that we remain free.
A people who honor their flag and understand what it means to fly it and are so proud to do so.
It is time for our voices to be heard loud and clear. Our government is for the people and by the people.
We are Americans who see our rights slipping away as we speak.
It is time our voices are heard.
It is time for us to shout loudly and strongly that we refuse to live under a socialist regime, where our voices are silenced.
Lets take this action now before we awaken one morning and our freedoms are nothing more than a memory.
WE WILL BE UNITED- CHRISTIAN, JEW, BUDDHIST, HINDU, ATHEIST, BLACK AND WHITE.
WE WILL BE ONE- ONE OF MANY WHO STAND AS PATRIOTIC AMERICANS DEMANDING OUR VOICES BE HEARD.
We will be DEMANDING THAT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA ABIDE BY THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Please help Texans watch their border with Mexico. The drug war is spilling over into Texas, and in the event of a collapse of the Mexican government milliions of illegals might try to flee over the border:
Watch for Obama to appoint this guy to head some new department - perhaps he will become the “czar” in a new “Prisoner’s Council”...
These morons must think Obama is the freaking King.
About the only intervention TOTUS can pursue is try and get this cop killer POS a new trial, which is highly unlikely since this case has been scrutinized more closely then Sarah Palin and her family and found solid multiple times.
Abu-Jamal is not without his white supporters. The Hollywood left has been active in his behalf and will doubtless bankroll this latest effort.
Of course, most of Abu-Jamal's white supporters are ashamed of being white.
Given their 'druthers, they'd rather buy some pigment than a clue...
For anybody who might be wondering why the President's unlimited power of pardon isn't applicable, murder is not a federal crime (unless of a federal official or committed on federal property). Obama has no jurisdiction.
Another good reason for the 10th Amendment and state's rights.
