  • Eric Holder Is Leaving Now, Because Obama Thinks The Senate Is Lost

    September 25,2014 Eric Holder Is Leaving Now, Because Obama Thinks The Senate Is Lost by MacAoidh/Scott McKay It’s busting out on to the wires today. Holder is resigning, effective as soon as his replacement can be confirmed. He had to do this now, rather than wait until after the midterms, because Holder’s tenure as Attorney General has been marked by a pattern of activist Leftism and constitutional/legal abuse such as has never been seen in American history, and if there is a Republican majority in the Senate next year they’re not going to be able to confirm anyone like him....
  • More Justice Department Chicanery: Thomas Perez and ‘Disparate Impact’

    The cabinet nominee fought to keep the Supreme Court from reviewing his preferred extortion technique. One of the administration’s favorite legal theories, “disparate impact,” may get taken up again by the Supreme Court. Will the administration try to engineer some kind of payoff to take the issue away from the Court — again? In June 2012, the town of Mount Holly, N.J., petitioned the Supreme Court to review the legitimacy of racial discrimination claims premised solely on a disparate impact theory under the Fair Housing Act. Under this theory, a policy — such as requiring high credit scores for loans...
  • Perez Framed Lenders As Racist In $600 Mil Shakedown

    New evidence has emerged that Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez may have improperly prosecuted Wells Fargo, Bank of America and dozens of other banks for lending discrimination by using deficient mortgage data in investigations. IBD has learned the special prosecutor spearheading Perez's record number of statistics-based cases of racism against lenders told federal bank regulators in 2010 he lacked key home loan data needed to conduct the kind of iron-clad "regression analyses" that would hold up in court. Still, Perez's civil-rights division used the shaky data to force bank defendants into a record $600 million in settlements, including loan set-asides...

    Laura Bailey makes $7.80 working at Wendy’s, but most of her income goes to transportation to and from work, making money tight for her and her teenage daughter, she said May 14 at a roundtable for minimum wage workers. An increase of the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9 “would do wonders” for her budget, she said. Bailey was among 19 people who shared their stories with Seth D. Harris, acting U.S. secretary of labor, who hosted the roundtable at Our Daily Bread Employment Center, a Catholic Charities program in Baltimore. The event was the 23rd of its kind...

    The Department of Justice under Eric Holder can’t seem to help itself. Truth and candor have gone extinct. The latest lie involving the nomination of Thomas Perez to be Labor secretary is found in today’s Washington Post. Naturally, the compliant reporter, Josh Hicks, appears to make no effort to challenge the lie, and probably never will. This latest lie about Perez revolves around his illegal use of his personal Verizon email account to conduct Justice Department business at his Takoma Park, Maryland, home. I testified to the House Judiciary Committee last month that when he was confronted with the question...

    Assistant Attorney General Thomas E. Perez's nomination by President Obama as labor secretary has been met with criticism from Republicans and widespread concern among current and former Justice Department attorneys who question whether the Civil Rights Division chief is qualified for the post. "People should be raising serious questions about this nomination," said Hans von Spakovsky, a veteran Justice Department lawyer who formerly served as counsel to the division. "This is a man who misled both Congress and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. "He was the focus last week of the most devastating indictment of a federal government agency...

    For the last several years, Thomas Perez has waged war on America from his position as the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division at Eric Holder’s bureau of outrageous travesties, once known to Americans as the U.S. Department of Justice. The environment there was so corrupt, so hostile to the rule of law and to white people, that prominent career DOJ civil rights attorney J. Christian Adams resigned in protest. Adams has written an entire book on the subject and on Perez’s reign of terror, the New York Times bestseller titled Injustice: The Racial Agenda of the Obama...

    No matter what progress Republicans may make in electoral politics over the coming years, it will be difficult to roll back the steady march of liberalism that has taken place inside our cultural, bureaucratic and legal institutions — from academia to regulatory agencies to the Department of Justice — but we have to try. A good place to start would be to oppose Obama's radical appointees, the latest being his appointment for secretary of labor, Thomas Perez. Radical liberals are characteristically activists, strategists and organizers. Their plan to infiltrate and dominate academia was hardly spontaneous, and its effects have hardly...

    President Barack Obama’s nominee for Labor Secretary has already been exposed for his connections with pro-abortion liberal billionaire George Soros, but he also has another pro-abortion skeleton in his closet. The Obama administration, in 2011, posted a new document to the White House web site touting its efforts to combat sex trafficking in the United States. But the document ignored Planned Parenthood — the abortion business where undercover investigations revealed staff willing to arrange for abortions for sex traffickers. Tom Perez, the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights at the US Department of Justice and Obama’s selection for Labor Secretary,...

    Thomas Perez embodies ethnic identity radicalism. Whether the U.S. Senate has courage to challenge him is yet unknown. President Obama today nominated Perez for Secretary of Labor. As the Department of Justice's assistant attorney general for civil rights since October 2009, Perez has promoted a hard-charging egalitarianism that goes even beyond that of first-term Obama Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, who resigned in January. His "Third World First, America Last" worldview comes with hefty baggage. He's persuaded the Justice Department to dismiss its case against Black Panther members accused of menacing white voters and poll watchers in Philadelphia on Election Day...

    Today, President Obama issues a challenge to Republican Senators: in nominating Tom Perez as Labor secretary, he implies that Senate Republicans don’t have either the guts or organizational skill to stop what would become perhaps the most radical left-wing cabinet member in history. Whether the president is right about GOP senators remains to be seen. As they say, I wrote the book on Tom Perez. My New York Times bestseller Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department is largely a catalog of the rancid racialism over which Perez has presided. The New Black Panther case is one...

    Today the Department of Justice inspector general released a report on potential Labor secretary nominee Tom Perez’s DOJ Civil Rights Division. The timing of the release to coincide with his nomination was certainly accidental, because the report paints a damning portrait of the DOJ unit he managed. The full report is here. The 250-page report offers an inside glimpse of systemic racialist dysfunction inside one of the most powerful federal government agencies. The report was prepared in response to Representative Frank Wolf’s (R-VA) outrage over the New Black Panther voter intimidation dismissal. Former Voting Section ChiefChris Coates and I both...

    Panther-case scofflaw merits no cabinet post.If President Obama thinks he can get away with appointing an obvious prevaricator to be Secretary of Labor – and a radical, race-baiting one at that – he has lost all touch with reality. Even a group as confused and fractious as the caucus of Senate Republicans is sure to find the collective backbone to block the (expected) appointment of Thomas Perez. As I described in detail last August, Perez is one of the most loathsome figures in the thoroughly loathsome political ranks of Obama’s Justice Department. He has led the administration’s racial scaremongering against...

    March 12, 2013 Obama to Nominate Sharia Supporter, Illegal Immigrant Advocate as Labor Secretary By Matthew Vadum President Obama reportedly intends to nominate in-your-face radical leftist lawyer Thomas Perez as his next Secretary of Labor. Now an assistant attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice, Perez is a former top aide to the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and possibly a perjurer. Perez led the Obama administration's assault on voter ID laws last year. As John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky report in Who's Counting, as a member of the Montgomery County, Md., Council in 2003 he also tried...
  • Fact Check: Suspicion Falls on Labor Secretary Solis as She Misleads on Jobs Numbers

    Suspicion about the federal government's September jobs report has fallen on Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, who appeared on CNBC this morning and defended the numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), claiming--falsely--that upward revisions of 86,000 jobs were from the private sector. In fact, the new number is entirely accounted for by upwards revisions to state and federal government payrolls. The BLS reported that while only 114,000 jobs were created in September--which would have translated into a rise in unemployment from 8.1% to 8.2%--the unemployment rate fell dramatically to 7.8%. That unusual drop is the fastest in nearly...

    Labor Secretary Hilda Solis is supposed to represent American workers. What you need to know is that this longtime open-borders sympathizer has always had a rather radical definition of "American." At a Latino voter registration project conference in Los Angeles many years ago, Solis asserted to thunderous applause, "We are all Americans, whether you are legalized or not." That's right. The woman in charge of enforcing our employment laws doesn't give a hoot about our immigration laws -- or about the fundamental distinction between those who followed the rules in pursuit of the American dream and those who didn't. While...

    ARLINGTON, Va. – President Bush's labor secretary warned a gathering of conservatives that Americans must pay more attention to the United Nations and its related organizations, which she noted were chipping away at U.S. sovereignty and threatening freedoms. Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, making her charges late Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, explained that powerful tax-exempt organizations were applying pressure through the U.N. to have the world body make decisions for Americans' lives without any input from U.S. citizens. These efforts are being made without the knowledge of most Americans, she pointed out. Chao cited a recent case where...
