From her website bio: She serves on several boards, and from 1992 to 1997 was a member of the Aspen Institute's Domestic Strategy Group.

Notably absent from her website bio is the part in bold from the govt. website:She serves on several boards, including the Institute for Justice, and from 1992 to 1997 was a member of the Aspen Institute's Domestic Strategy Group.

“Worst case of voter intimidation he had ever seen.”

I think you’re referring to Bartle Bull, looooong time civil rights attorney going back to the ‘60’s in the South, worked with RFK and Fat Ted, and eye witness to the event.

In the linked clip he says:

“Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy did not die to have uniformed thugs blocking the doors of polling places with weapons. This is the first time in our lifetime that the administration is protecting the abusers instead of the voters...because they want to maximize the vote — intimidate poll watchers, allowing illegal ACORN voters to vote.”

Beck’s right. Our Republic is dead. Needs CPR, fast.

Does this headline refer to the alleged spitting and use of the “N” word at the tea party rally on the day of health care passage?... Oh wait, my bad.. This must be about the video at the polling place which clearly shows a Black Panther holding a weapon.. Sorry..

Were they 'menacing' (exactly what is that, btw?) one particular race of people, or was it just random?

LOL! This is the same Bob Schieffer that deliberately misstated the Arizona law when “interviewing” Eric Holder a few weeks ago, and who claimed in an on-camera interview a couple of weeks ago that he had never heard of the Black Panther case.

Now he’s “interviewing” some other Obama shill, giving them unfettered national air time to blatantly lie about there being no other evidence than the video tape. DOJ has reams of sworn testimony about this case from multiple witnesses, independent of the video tape.

Wonder why Bob didn’t ask about that? Is he going to claim ignorance of the basic facts once again? If so, this old fogy needs to be put out to pasture pronto before he starts drooling on camera while he gums his applesauce. On the other hand, NBC may simply have turned Face the Nation into the “All Obama Administration Propaganda Show”. You decide.

The New Panthers would be happy to tell Ms. Thernstrom they’re proud of their comrades struggle against The Man. However, the NBPP law team, though down with the struggle (fist in the air), strongly caution the NBPP to remain silent. We clear, ayeet.

Remember when Communists took over the entertainment industry (Hollywood) and many government offices, and even though McCarthy proved it, the communists kept insisting there was no such thing as communists?

Joseph McCarthy was a hero. Had enough listened to him, the country would be far freer today.

Thernstrom is arguing that the "small potatoes" case was dropped NOT because of any formal Justice Dept. policy protecting blacks over whites but because there was "no direct evidence that they (the uniformed, weapon wielding black panthers) actually intimidated anyone."

Some of us here believe the video and the words of eye-witness Bartle Bull and others indicate obvious and egregious intimidation and would like to know exactly why the case was dropped.

I think a lot of 'crackers' will be leaving the Democrat Party where they no longer feel welcome. I also think they are getting fed up with this hypersensitivity to race and they are sick and tired of the Dem Party and the Media ignoring or downplaying serious race based crimes and focusing on non-existent 'karl rove/tea party/Repubs/whites are racist crap.

This story by CBS is the opposite of helping.

“Here’s an excellent piece ripping Abigail.

The Case Against the New Black Panthers (McCarthy rips “conservatve” Abigail Thernstrom & DOJ)

Yes, Andrew McCarthy ripped this dingbat a new one in that article.

What’s even more outrageous about Eric Holder’s Dept. of Injustice passing over the voter intimidation in this case is how brazen they are about it.

If they want to O.K. headknocking, they may not be too pleased with the way it turns out.

So, the Justice Department is correct in that there is NO EVIDENCE they physically restrained anyone to keep them from voting.

Read the evidence and testimony again. The tall "panther" actually stood blocking the doorway from one voter. This testimony was entered into evidence.

The reason she doesn't know about it is because she only watches ABCCBSNBCCNN and reads the N.Y.T.

“...in fact, the Bush administration decided not to pursue criminal charges, with Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez testifying that the Bush Justice Department “determined that the facts did not constitute a prosecutable violation of the criminal statutes”;...”

So gear up next election in combat boots, military like uniforms, carry your nightstick, and stand in front of the entrance to the voting precinct. Tell the voters that whites are gonna win this election, and we are back in control now. Since it has been determined to do so does not violate any criminal statutes. The Bush JD says so.

“A recent Media Matters investigation has debunked charges”

ROFLOL!!!

******

From 1995 until 1998, Perez served as Special Counsel to Senator Edward Kennedy, and was Senator Kennedy’s principal adviser on civil rights, criminal justice and constitutional issues.

For the final two years of the Clinton administration, Perez served as the Director of the Office for Civil Rights at the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

Perez also served on the board of Casa de Maryland, a group that advocates for the Latino community in Maryland.

Does it matter?

Not to me, but apparently it does to the DOJ.

If you are of a certain race, and you pick on another certain race, the DOJ has been instructed NOT TO INVESTIGATE, nor ACCEPT ANY EVIDENCE.

Example: The BLACK PANTHER CASE.

The 'evidence' is there and the Justice Department has refused to acknowledge it.

Gerald Walpin (fired by Obama for blowing the whistle on a BBALL player who is a 'friend' of Michelle) thinks it has to to with racism.

J. Christian Adams (Asst Atty. General who resigned over the Black Panther case) thinks it has to do with racism.

J.Christian Adams: Former Justice Department lawyer J. Christian Adams made explosive allegations yesterday in testimony to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, saying that a particular Justice Department official openly announced that civil rights laws would not be enforced to protect white voters. He also said he saw race-based harassment within the department itself.

Or conversely, would it then be OK for me to stand in front of a polling place with military garb and a nightstick?

I believe it is Dr. Malik Zulu Shabbazz who is prohibited from carrying a nightstick to a Philadelphia polling place until 2011.

So you pays your money and takes your choice.
