Obama Nominates Cop Killer Advocate to Head DOJ Civil Rights Division
Townhall.com ^ | January 8, 2014 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 01/08/2014 5:20:28 AM PST by Kaslin

In 1982, former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal was convicted of murdering Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner. Abu-Jamal never denied the killing during his trial. He, and his supporters, are still unapologetic for Faulkner's death. More on this from Matthew Vadum:

“The question of Abu-Jamal’s guilt is not a close call,” according to John Fund. “Two hospital workers testified that Abu-Jamal confessed to them: ‘I shot the motherf***er, and I hope the motherf***er dies.’ His brother, William, has never testified to his brother’s innocence even though he was at the scene of the crime. Abu-Jamal himself chose not to testify in his own defense.”

As Faulkner tried to arrest Abu-Jamal’s brother during a traffic stop, Abu-Jamal shot the policeman once in the back and then stood over him and shot him four more times at close range, once directly in the face. Multiple eyewitnesses were present during the crime.

One of those unapologetic supporters is former NAACP Legal Defense Official Debo P. Adegbile, who has worked tirelessly to free guilty murderer Abu-Jamal from prison. President Obama has nominated Adegbile to head the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division as an assistant attorney general to replace radical Tom Perez, who is now the Secretary of Labor. Adegbile is sure to continue carrying out the radical racial agenda of President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder with the weight of the law behind him.

After the Supreme Court threw out the Beard v. Abu-Jamal case in 2010, a petition was circulated calling for President Obama and Attorney General Holder to investigate the “long history of civil rights and constitutional violations" in Abu-Jamal's case. If Adegbile is confirmed, it is likely he will open up an investigation into the Abu-Jamal case, despite multiple court rulings over the past three decades upholding his murder conviction.

On the voting front, there are many concerns about how Adegbile will enforce or change the law. In June 2013, the Supreme Court struck down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act as unconstitutional, allowing states to change their voting laws without prior approval from the Justice Department. Attorney General Eric Holder has essentially ignored the ruling.Through his extensive work at the NAACP and in arguments before the Supreme Court, Adegbile has made it clear he does not believe civil rights apply to whites.

Not surprisingly, the mainstream media seems to be less interested in Adegbile's radical ties and more interested in his role on Sesame Street as a child actor. USA Today: Obama taps ex-Sesame Street actor for Justice post


Not every child actor grows up to be a high-ranking Justice Department official, but Debo P. Adegbile has a chance to do just that.

Adegbile, who appeared on Sesame Street during the 1970s, has been nominated to be the new assistant attorney general for civil rights; President Obama submitted the nomination to the Senate on Monday.

If confirmed, Adegbile would replace Tom Perez, the new secretary of labor.

The Los Angeles Times reported on Adegbile's previous career:

"When he was 4 or 5, a friend noticed an ad seeking children to audition for Sesame Street. Adegbile landed the job and played the part of Debo, a child of the Sesame Street neighborhood, until high school.


Adegbile will testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday at 10 am et. You can watch live here.

This is insulting to all decent people. Obama's officially a jerk.

One further substantiation that the part of the Current Regime supposedly responsible for law enforcement on the national level has truly become the Department of Just-Us.

And yet another part of the basic contract that elected representatives were supposed to be held to in their dealings with the people residing in the territory once known as “the United States of America” has just been tossed out the window.

This is no longer in the name of “Civil Liberty”, it is a blatant, in-your-face, smash-mouth, thumb-to-nose, kick-in-the-groin, insult to the traditions and body of established law that once governed this land. Men are no longer exalted for their stainless record, but for their arrest records, and support for the “oppressed” who in large part, induced their own personal grief.

Following the 2016 election, one of the first official acts of the conservative voted President should be to fire every single one of these lowlifes that barry installed.

I would not count on a new president for a long, long time, if ever. The election of 2012 demonstrated that the Democrat Party now controls the election process. The throwing the veterans under the bus by both Parties, Indicates to me that by 2016 at the latest, both Parties will collude, later this year, to pass a law that will allow illegals to vote. After that, it is over.

This is being done at the direction of Hillary Clinton.

Hillary’s attempting a repeat of her dirty tricks campaign she kicked off in November 2006 which was her “Scorched Earth Policy” from Clinton’s impeachment.

Both failed, but the “Scorched Earth Policy” which Hillary attempted to implement on March 20, 1999, included the release of the FALN terrorist in it’s plan.

There will be a major increase in the news of “racial profiling” and abuse by police.

They will then call for a review of all complaints filed against police with the FBI. The number will be in the tens of thousands.

It’s these FBI files Hillary is after.

These FBI files on police corruption are the same kind of files Hillary threatened to release during Clintons impeachment.

She can use them to blackmail democrats into supporting her just like she blackmailed dems during Clintons impeachment.

If it looks like the dems are going to loose the WH, then we will be treated to the full “Scorched Earth Police” which is from the Weather Underground playbook.

It’s basically a race war (think of the 1992 LA riots in every city) along with a complete collapse of the legal system.

Zippo stays.

Recall the Gates “racial profiling” dust up in 2009?

First thing the Congressional Black Caucus did was call for a review of complaints filed against police with the FBI.

BTW, with this little move they are also letting us know there is a major terrorist attack coming down the pike.

I don’t like it, but this is what the majority of those that voted in both 2008 and 2012 said they, via their votes, wanted. In fact , no less that Barbara Walters said they considered Obama to be their messiah. This is from her own lips. Thus a majority of those who live here[in the U.S.A.]said , again , by their vote, this [Obama] is who we want to rule over us. Not God. It is my belief that God will grant them their wish.

There is an al Qaida doc that was recovered in Afghanistan in 2002 and made public in 2004 at the CTC at west Point’s Harmony Database (since pulled down).

It was a letter from Osama bin Laden to Mullah Omar, listed as doc # AFGP-2002-600321.

In the letter OBL says the media (news) is 90% of the preparation for the battle.

If you have a small scale attack you can base the attack on what is in the news. Large scale attack you can’t you have to orchestrate the news for it because of the timing, then you have to spin the news after the attack in order to achieve your objective.

The terrorist don’t have the ability to orchestrate the news much less spin the news to their advantage, only the left in this country can do that.

Since 1993’s 1st WTC bombing, prior to each and every terrorist attack, attempted attack, or threat of attack the left has always ginned up civil unrest, attempted to gin up civil unrest, or had a plan to gin up civil unrest.

It never fails.

The terrorist attacks are following the Weather Underground playbook.

Find an incident, a spark to ignite the flame, ratchet it up to a raging inferno.

Orchestrate civil unrest/race riots then carryout terrorist attacks.

The “spontaneous” lie with Benghazi is nothing more than the terrorist picked up on the news of civil unrest in Egypt and planned a terrorist attack around it.

Before the Benghazi attack we had the airline plot. Al Qaida gave the “bomber” a bomb and said time it when you want it. The “bomber” was a govt agent.

Before this bomb plot was reported the news media edited the Trayvon Martin 911 tapes to stir the racial pot and Obama sent people to Florida to gin up civil unrest.

Obama controlled both ends, the civil unrest before and when the “bombing” would take place.

Nope, the left is orchestrating the news for the attacks.

The spontaneous lie and it’s various versions are meant to make people believe the terrorist are picking up on the news and planning an attack around the news.

In the January 2006 version of the “spontaneous” lie, the “news story” didn’t happen until after OBL made the tape threatening another attack.

The claim was made by Al Jazeera that OBL had made the tape in December then it was changes to January because the news story OBL was supposed to have picked up on was the American Civil Liberty Union passing out video cameras in St. Louise to redo the Rodney King video/riots.

The 1st WTC bombing was planned around the R King case in 1991.

Benghazi and the “spontaneous” lie was built around a video protest.

Another example, the attempted car bombing in NYC in 2010.

The left began orchestrating news stories as how violent the TEA Party was and how the TEA Party was a bunch of Tim McVeigh wannabes.

After the attempted car bombing the left claimed it had to be TEA Party because it was a fertilizer bomb like McVeigh used.

The only reason the lefts spin of the news after the attack blaming the TEA Party didn’t work was the bomb didn’t go off.

The chain of events leading up to the attempted bombing are almost an exact repeat of the chain of events leading up to the OKC bombing in 1995.

In 1995 the left began making claims the “right wing extremist” being led by Rush wanted to kill the president.

Clinton took a trip to the Philippines were Terry Nickels was going, and low and behold there was an assignation plot against Clinton.

In 2009 the left began orchestrating stories that “right wing extremist, being led by Glenn Beck, wanted to kill the president.

Hillary takes an unanounced trip overseas and low and behold there is an assignation plot against Hillary.

In 1995 there was an al Qaida airline plot from the Philippines (failed) before the OKC bombing.

In 2009 there was an al Qaida airline plot, the underwear bomber which failed also.

There is no way the terrorist could just “piggy back” off the news, the news has to be orchestrated for the attacks.

Make that the majority of the bought votes, the software goofs, the votes for anyone other than The Won Again went to him, the voting dead, the uncounted absentee votes, the voting Mickey Mouses and the precincts that voted 99-100% for their lord and savior proved.

Actually, I believed that some precincts went a 100% plus for the sob. No doubt the Democrats stole the election and I would say look for a repeat in 2014 and 2016. The results of the election made me sick. Where were the cries of outrage from the Republicans? Now I am down to wishing the parasites get what they voted for.

Obama’s appointed a big time democrat money donor to look into allegations about the IRS targeting conservatives.

Is that rich or what?

Obama doesn't need to waste the money... as a big time donor to democrats and to Obama this 'libeal' has probably made up his mind. He don't need no stinkin’ facts... none of the democrats do...

We're screwed.

Crooks, criminals and liars... dems all.
