FNC Exclusive: Former DOJ Attorney Discusses New Black Panther Party Voter Intimidation Case
Fox News ^ | 30 June 2010 | MEGYN KELLY

Posted on 06/30/2010 12:01:37 PM PDT by SkyPilot

J. CHRISTIAN ADAMS, FORMER JUSTIC DEPARTMENT LAWYER: Well, people were standing in front of the polls with weapons in Philadelphia on the day that President Obama was elected in 2008. The Justice Department brought a case in January under the voter intimidation statutes against the New Black Panther Party, the individuals who organized the deployment and the folks with the weapons in Philadelphia at the polls.

MEGYN KELLY, "AMERICA LIVE" HOST: Ok, and so the guy we see banging the baton, he was one defendant. The guy next to him who was said to have been saying intimidating things, he was a defendant. The New Black Panther Party was a defendant and the head of it was a defendant.

ADAMS: That’s right, all four.

KELLY: Ok, and what was basically the heart of the case against them.

ADAMS: Yeah, this 1965 Voting Rights Act protects voters from voter intimidation. You’re supposed to be able to go vote without somebody with a weapon shouting racial slurs at you like these folks were doing in Philadelphia.

KELLY: What were they saying?

ADAMS: Well, they said, “You’re about to be ruled by the black man, Cracker”. They called people “white devils”. They menaced, they tapped their baton. They tried to stop people from entering the polls.

KELLY: Is there any question in your mind that that violates the law.

ADAMS: No, nor anybody that worked on the case. It’s the easiest case I ever had at the Justice Department. It doesn’t get any easier than this. If this doesn’t constitute voter intimidation, nothing will.

KELLY: And you had, you had not just that video tape, which we’ve all now seen, but you had witness testimony from some credible witnesses who were there.

FOX ran with this interview as breaking news in the last hour.

The rest of this inteview is at the link.

I have always been amazed that this scandal has not caught fire and burned those involved who were so blatantly involved in racial intimidation, judicial malpractice, and a massive cover up by Eric Holder and Obama's underlings.

ADAMS: Well, the testimony has been that Steve Rosenbaum and Loretta King, two political officials at the Department ordered the dismissal of the case. Of course that was the first story. Eventually it was revealed that there were more people involved. But originally Steve Rosenbaum and Loretta King, two political appointees did.

Former Justice Department Lawyer Accuses Holder of Dropping New Black Panther Case for Racial Reasons

A former Justice Department attorney who quit his job to protest the Obama administration's handling of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case is accusing Attorney General Eric Holder of dropping the charges for racially motivated reasons. J. Christian Adams, now an attorney in Virginia and a conservative blogger, says he and the other Justice Department lawyers working on the case were ordered to dismiss it. "I mean we were told, 'Drop the charges against the New Black Panther Party,'" Adams told Fox News, adding that political appointees Loretta King, acting head of the civil rights division, and Steve Rosenbaum, an attorney with the division since 2003, ordered the dismissal.

There’s no outrage because the Republicans in Congress are gutless and don’t want to touch race issues, especially if it involves black or hispanic racists.

But Adams told Fox News that politics and race was at play in the dismissal. "There is a pervasive hostility within the civil rights division at the Justice Department toward these sorts of cases," Adams told Fox News' Megyn Kelly. Adams says the dismissal is a symptom of the Obama administration's reverse racism and that the Justice Department will not pursue voting rights cases against white victims. Adams also says that after the dismissal, Justice Department attorneys were instructed not to bring any more cases against racial minorities under the Voting Section.

This whole scandal stinks to high heaven.

If redneck whites showed up to intimidate black voters, it would have been a far different story.

Other than being the reverse, there isn’t much difference between guys in white hoods showing up at a mostly black polling place.

obama and his thugs are idiots and racists.

i had no doubt there was deep and dirty corruption in this case, but after reading this chills go down my spine.

To all you Liberal nutjobs reading this....how much more evidence do you need that the Usurper needs to be IMPEACHED for crimes? WHY is Fox the only organzation with the integrity to investigate this? Have you asked questions about this, or the Walpin firing case, or the Blago corruption case, or the Sestak bribery case.....CLEARCUT evidence and grounds for impeachment.

ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, ...what say you? Is there any OUNCE of journalistic cred left in your frail liberal bodies, so consumed with liberal passion that you forget what it is to be an objective journalist? Stop stupid factchecking Palin’s speeches and get to work researching matters that are relevant to the safety of Americans!

“I like to think I’d just say “EXCUSE ME I’m trying to get in and vote!”

Yeah, I’d like to think that too, but I think I would have ended up saying “someone call 911” because one of us would need a lot of medical help...not saying who, you never know how it would turn out, but aholes like this don’t intimidate me.

Sounds like this is highly likely to become commonplace if the DOJ now has a policy to not pursue voter intimidation if it is being done by blacks to whites. They would seem to have a blank check for this type of behavior.

I've been trying to find more info on Loretta King from the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ, ie., who she is, where does she come from, how long she's been with DOJ, etc?

She's apparently been a member of CRD for a while, as she was involved in the Johnson vs. Miller (Zell), which was a redistricting case brought to court by white voters in Georgia's 11th Congressional District. King and the DOJ lost that case in 1995. The Supreme Court and federal district court "criticized the DOJ's handling of the case, finding its practices 'disturbing.' ” "The district court found the 'considerable influence of ACLU advocacy on the voting rights decisions of the United States Attorney General' to be 'an embarrassment.' ” Taxpayers ended up paying $587,000 in "attorneys’ fees and costs that were awarded to the defendants to compensate them for an unwarranted lawsuit, one in which King and the other Justice Department lawyers 'commanded' the state of Georgia, as the Supreme Court noted, to engage in 'presumptively unconstitutional race-based districting.' ”

She also overruled the voters of Kinston, N.C. who voted overwhelmingly to have party affiliations removed from ballots last year. Next was her involvement in the dismissal of the case against the Black Panthers. She seems to have gone missing during the Bush years. Somebody at DOJ must have kept her under control during that time. Now that her party is back in control of the White House, and Holder's back at DOJ, she's out doing her racist best. Does anyone have anything else on her?

“Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and “revolution” as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism,[8] they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.”

Well, he was right about that, and now we see the demographoc warfare that has resulted.

This is called "historic justice" which is the calling card of every fascist movement in history.

And this is only what we see. You can imagine what it will be like when people will be applying for Social Security and the like, or any federal program.

I still do not understand WHY the panthers were at ANY polls in Philly, a city that was going to go overwhelmingly for BHO.

What was the point?
Perhaps this was all staged with the plan that later, O would show us white crackers that “the black man” is ruling us and that they can do whatever the H they want to do.
