    The Romeike family PURCELLVILLE, VA, July 2, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - On June 26, the Department of Justice submitted a brief to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals stating Germany's laws that suppress religious homeschooling aim at promoting "tolerance" and are not grounds for claiming persecution. Homeschooling is illegal in Germany under a law dating back to the Hitler era, and in recent years the country has become increasingly draconian in enforcing the law – removing children from their families, levying heavy fines, even sentencing homeschooling parents to jail. The German Supreme Court has stated that the purpose of the homeschool ban is to “counteract the development of religious...

    President Barack Obama’s top civil rights official repeatedly declined to support religious free speech during a July 27 congressional hearing, despite repeated questioning from Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks, who chairs the House’s constitution subcommittee. Tom Perez, the progressive who runs the Justice Department’s civil rights office, refused to answer the questions posed by Franks. “Will you tell us… that this administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?” Frank asked four times. Perez refused to answer, saying “it is a hard question, in the sense that when you make threats...
  • Before Fully Assessing Contempt Citation, U.S. Attorney for D.C. Refuses to Hold Holder Accountable

    In a non-surprising move, the Department of Justice has just officially announced they will not proceed with prosecuting Attorney General Eric Holder after the House of Representatives voted to hold him in criminal and civil contempt of Congress yesterday. The Justice Department moved Friday to shield Attorney General Eric Holder from prosecution after the House voted to hold him in contempt of Congress. The contempt vote technically opened the door for the House to call on the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia to bring the case before a grand jury. But because U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen works for...
  • Watching Now Katie Pavlich On CSPAN 2 Drops Bombshell

    Watching Pavlich interview with Major Garrett on CSPAN2, watch it now or catch the replay. She just said that there were three weapons recovered at the scene, not two, and she strongly suspects that the murder of Brian Terry was a paid government confidential informant. Now, I think we know why Obama-Holder wants to keep this evidence out of the public domain. Also, she points out for the slow that it's implied that the justice dept knew many Mexicans would be killed by putting these powerful weapons in the hands of cartel killers, but were considered essentially (my words) acceptable...

    In the hours before Attorney General Eric Holder’s scheduled testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Republican lawmakers Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) released a new report suggesting top Department of Justice officials had extensive knowledge of and involvement in Operation Fast and Furious. The memo, sent to Republican members of the Oversight Committee, was based upon interviews, documents and emails involving key players of the operation run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The operation allowed some 2,000 weapons cross the border into Mexico and into the hands of cartel...

    Exceeds time it took Warren Commission to produce report on JFK murder “I will certainly await the report that comes out of the inspector general and I will assure you and the American people that people will be held accountable for any mistakes that were made in connection with Fast and Furious,” Attorney General Eric Holder testified in a November 8 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. This leads to the questions of why it’s taking so long, and if the end result will be indicative of the self-serving stonewalling and foot-dragging the Department of Justice has exhibited throughout congressional investigations of...
  • Alabama says NO to DOJ request for school info.

    MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The State Department of Education is advising school superintendents to hold off on providing enrollment data to the U.S. Department of Justice. The DOJ had requested Alabama school superintendents provide a list of all students who had withdrawn from schools since the beginning of the school year. Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez sent a letter to Alabama school systems wanting to know how many Hispanic students are enrolled in schools and how many have withdrawn since the beginning of the school year. Educators reported the new law caused many Hispanic students to stay home in the...

    Article For Immediate Release October 31, 2011 New Gun Walking Documents Show Criminal Division Knew More than Previous Acknowledged Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Chuck Grassley made the following statement after the Justice Department provided more than 650 pages of documents related to the congressional inquiry into Operation Fast and Furious.  Grassley has been conducting oversight of the strategy since January. “There are 652 pages of documents that our investigators will scour over the next several days, beyond the few that the Justice Department pointed out.  At first glance, though, the documents indicate that contrary to previous denials by...
  • Why does Justice Department need to lie on FOIA responses?

    “Justice Dept. proposes lying, hiding existence of records under new FOIA rule,” The Daily Caller reports. A proposed revision to Freedom of Information Act rules would allow federal agencies to lie to citizens and reporters seeking certain records, telling them the records don’t exist. “A final version of the proposed rule could be issued by the end of this year. If approved, the new rule would officially become a federal regulation with the force of law,” Investors.com warns. Presumably the Nixon White House could have used the rule during Watergate to say, "Tape? What tape? It doesn't exist." This rule...
  • The DOJ’s Unsupported Suit Against the Arizona Immigration Law

    The already bloated doctrine of federal preemption must not be further engorged. On July 6, 2010, the Holder Justice Department, allegedly without consultation with President Obama, filed suit in federal district court in Arizona to block the new Arizona law intended to enforce existing federal laws against unlawful immigration, something the federal government itself has patently failed to do. The suit asks the court for, among other things, an order restraining Arizona from implementing the new statute later this month as scheduled, pending the outcome of the litigation. It is evident that this was done for partisan political purposes, although...

    Naked Emperor News uncovered a video of the black panther who was caught on video intimidated voters outside of a polling location in Philadelphia, PA with a baseball bat– this time around he’s advocating “killing white babies” while spewing his utter contempt towards white people. The Department of Justice initially took up the case, won, and was about to issue a sentence. Suddenly, under the new leadership of Eric Holder, the U.S. Attorney General and former senior legal advisor to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, the charges were dropped.
