Skip to comments.FNC Exclusive: Former DOJ Attorney Discusses New Black Panther Party Voter Intimidation Case
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: Thats 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. Youre 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, Youre 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. Its the easiest case I ever had at the Justice Department. It doesnt get any easier than this. If this doesnt constitute voter intimidation, nothing will.
KELLY: And you had, you had not just that video tape, which weve all now seen, but you had witness testimony from some credible witnesses who were there.

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.
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.
I watched the interview and also recorded it. The interview will continue tomorrow, which I will also record
This whole scandal stinks to high heaven.
excellent interview. Guy was totally believable.
I would suppose if this becomes commonplace, kneecaps will be lost and crowds will gather to move these “gentlemen” to another location. Most likely a hospital environment.
"WHAT NIGHT STICK!?"
I have never seen footage of that interview before.
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.
PART 2 IS TOMORROW SHE SAID..AND IT IS EVEN MORE EXPLOSIVE.
Two words for the kind of lawlessness the DOJ & Obama are setting up: Open season
Congress hate,i mean really hates,bing lied to. There will be plenty of noise going ahead with it becoming a huge roar should they win back the house.
Yes, I did, I also taped it. It was a great interview. Megyn Kelly rocks. Tomorrow will be part 2
The tall black panther is an elected official in Philly? Holy cr@p! We are so screwed!
the interview just came out today
We all know who the real racists are and it isn’t the Tea Partiers.
ping to my previous post
"C'mon now, these young negros were simply excercising the will of the people, ain't dat right brutha Hussein?"
If people like that showed up where I vote (highly unlikely) I wonder how I would have reacted.
I like to think I’d just say “EXCUSE ME I’m trying to get in and vote!”
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!
DOJ = Department of Racism
if this is true then the states need to ccw at the poling places,or these fine “gentlemen” need to be henry bowmaned
“I like to think Id just say EXCUSE ME Im 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.
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
Never bring a baton to a gunfight.
I share your outrage over this... sometimes it’s hard to believe we still live in America
Here’s a related article that has my blood boiling. I cannot believe they can get away with this either:
New Black Panther Party Hosts Nat’l Black Power Convention (Prepare for War” Against Tea Party)
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.
Justices only defense was that Adam’s is a Conservative!!! What BS this is.
Does this administration do anything but lie, deceive, threaten, bribe and work to destroy anyone who exposes them while working overtime to destroy the nation? Rhetorical question I know...
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?
I wouldn’t bring that little revolver to a gun fight . You would be seriously out gunned.
Blatant racism which is obviously coming directly from the WH. I would stay well away from Philadelphia, pandy. If any place is going to blow up that’s it.
Those two words can be distilled into one; anarchy. 0baMao is destroying the rule of law. This is far from the only area he has done so too.
Road to Zimbabwe ping.
How old are these pictures?
In one , it looks like ‘ 98 is on the pic.
Yep. His Secret Service code name is apt. And they didn’t even know him when they gave him the nick.
I guess I missed the memo. What is his SS code name?
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, 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.
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,

BTW: That's Jerry Jackson on the right.

The New Black Panther Partys teachable moments on race:
So a couple of political appointees had the case dismissed for “political” reasons? Do they think the New Black Panthers are good guys? Do they want to encourage this kind of thing? Will they go on TV to answer these questions?
As the Gaul said to the Roman;"Woe to the conquered!"
Well, they said, Youre about to be ruled by the black man, Cracker. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
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.
Barry Soetoro and his running dogs have to go.
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.
KAS, please ping me when you put part two on FR.
PING! Ex DOJ Atty reveals all on Black Panther Case.
