    J. Christian Adams is an election lawyer who served in the Voting Rights Section at the U.S. Department of Justice and is author of Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department Most who have seen the video of the New Black Panthers standing in front of a Philadelphia polling place in 2008 have well-settled opinions about the matter. However, with the presidential election next year, and with the injunction that barred the baton-wielding King Samir Shabazz from appearing at city polling places set to expire, it's worth considering some facts you might not have heard before.

  • Did Media Matters Collude With DOJ On Black Panther Story?

    Big Government ^ | 10/3/11 | Liberty Chick
    When news broke of alleged voter intimidation involving the New Black Panthers Party in the 2008 election, Media Matters for America (MMfA) launched a relentless push back against the charges, resulting in almost 8,000 MMfA site specific Google hits in which MMfA attacked virtually anyone who attempted to report on the controversy, while elevating any reporting that minimized it, or the Department of Justice’s decision to drop the case. Meanwhile, a former MMfA Director of External Affairs, Xochitl Hinojosa, who had actually joined the Department of Justice in July of 2009 as a Public Affairs Specialist, took an active role...

    One might be inclined to think that an economic meltdown caused by irresponsible mortgage underwriting would be a “‘lesson learned” of the first order. One might think a federal government which has largely escaped well-deserved blame for its part in pressuring banks to relax loan standards for minority applicants, in order to avoid charges of racism, would never reprise such an ill-conceived concept. One might think a U.S. Department of Justice neck-deep in a Mexican gunrunning scandal and unresolved charges of reverse-discrimination for dropping a voter intimidation case against Black Panthers would be chastened by such disclosures. One would be...

    President Barack Obama, still milking the incredible success of the Navy SEAL kill team of Osama bin Laden, should now pull the plug on the strange, ongoing investigation of CIA "enhanced interrogation techniques." These are the very techniques -- especially the waterboarding of terrorist detainees -- that CIA operatives used that resulted in initial information leading in part to the discovery of Osama bin Laden's shabby hiding place in Abbottabad, according to CIA Director Leon Panetta. Despite prior investigations that cleared CIA operatives of any wrongdoing, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in 2009, apparently as a sop to Obama's leftist...

    The New Black Panther Party threatened Philadelphia voters with billy clubs and Eric Holder’s justice department couldn’t be bothered. CAIR was accused of fundraising for Hamas, and Eric Holder shrugged. But back when Fidel Castro demanded the return of an escaped slave, Eric Holder snapped to attention, clicked his heels, and sprung to action. It is scrupulous legality, we’re given to understand by Mr. Holder, that prevents his Department from prosecutions against the New Black Panthers and CAIR. But regarding scrupulous legality, Fox News Andrew Napolitano had (then Deputy) Attorney General Eric Holder’s number way back in April 23rd...

    Where's Sharpton, where's Jackson, and for that matter, where's Obama and Holder? What am I talking about? I'm talking about the vicious beating a young white transgendered "woman" suffered at the hands of two black girls, one of whom was only 14 years old. Pursuant to Obama-Holder, will they treat this as they have the case involving the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case, i.e., if you ain't black it don't matter? I should here state in the strongest possible terms my condemnation of homosexuality, transgenderism, etc. But just as my objection to sexual perversion is based upon biblical...

    We may soon learn about the priorities of the Voting Section of the Department of Justice. Fresh off the whitewash of the voter intimidation dismissal against the New Black Panther Party, the DOJ has received a request to monitor upcoming elections in Southbridge, Massachusetts. It seems the mounting possibility of voter intimidation may plague the upcoming municipal contest. The culprit? This billboard: Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. This billboard is part of a campaign encouraging Bay State citizens to voluntarily show photo identification even though the law does not require it. A Boston Globe story “Voter ID...

    Last week intentionally gullible (frightful if they actually buy what they are writing) apologists for the Obama Justice Department proclaimed that the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) scandal was really nothing at all. You see, the Justice Department’s own Office of Personal Responsibility (OPR) had given the department a clean bill of health! Aside from the obvious hypocrisy — would a Bush self-investigation be given credence by such Obama cheerleaders? — there are multiple grounds for dismissing this as another effort at stonewalling in a scandal that has had many such examples. None of these concern the left (whether those...
  • How Eric Holder and Barack Obama Squandered the Promise of a Post-Racial America

    A limited internal investigation into whether the people who dismissed the black panther voter intimidation case acted unethically has concluded. No surprise, the DOJ found that DOJ did not act unethically. This minor event was enough to create media history. For the first time since the scandal broke, the New York Times, NPR, Associated Press and Washington Post all covered the black panther voter intimidation matter. It seems media interest peaks when the government is to be defended – a perverse position given the historic import of the free press. What has been most amazing to see is how the...

    Justice Department should release report on voter-intimidation case The Justice Department continues to do its best to whitewash its involvement in the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case. The department’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) wrote Tuesday to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar S. Smith to say it found no “misconduct” in Obama administration political appointees overruling career attorneys in dropping most charges and penalties against the individuals who stood menacingly outside a polling place in military-style uniforms, holding nightsticks. The text of OPR’s report, which took 19 months to complete, remains under wraps. That’s not surprising considering the...

    The Justice Department’s Office of Personnel Responsibility (OPR) has concluded an investigation finding that politics played no role in the handling of the New Black Panther Party case, which sparked a racially charged political fight. After reviewing thousands of pages of internal e-mails and notes and conducting 44 interviews with department staff members, the OPR reported that “department attorneys did not commit professional misconduct or exercise poor judgment” and that the voter-intimidation case against the Panthers was dismissed on “a good faith assessment of the law” and “not influenced by the race of the defendants.” The OPR’s findings were released...

    On January 26 , I asked whether the fix was in at the Justice Department in its internal investigation of the New Black Panther Party case. Unfortunately, it looks as if the answer is a resounding “yes.” Over Christmas, Attorney General Eric Holder appointed left-wing Democratic-party loyalist Robin Ashton to head up the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), which is supposed to investigate ethics violations by DOJ lawyers. At the same time, Holder announced in the New York Times that those who dismissed the voter-intimidation lawsuit the DOJ had won did the right thing. Former attorney general Michael Mukasey...

    Certainly the recent vexation expressed by Eric Holder over being questioned regarding the New Black Panther voter intimidation case -- i.e., his defense of "my people" -- depicts a new low in race relations here in America. The liberal media and many politicians are curiously not outraged at what is an arguably race-based federal civil rights case. We were told of a post-racial era that all Americans would enjoy as the outcome of the election of America's first African-American president. As so eloquently described by one of Mr. Holder's people, this post-racial era is not so evident in the view...

    Continuing to face down questions as to why the U.S. Justice Department went easy on prosecuting members of the New Black Panther Party who stood armed with nightsticks outside a Philadelphia polling location during the 2008 presidential election, Attorney General Eric Holder expressed his personal frustration over the criticism that race played a role. During a hearing of a House Appropriations subcommittee Tuesday, Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas, accused Holder’s DOJ of failing to cooperate with a Civil Rights Commission investigation into the decision to dismiss the case. Holder seemed to take personal offense when Culberson read comments from former Democratic...

Frustrated over criticism since the 2008 election violation and a case the Justice Department had already won, but inexplicably withdrew after Holder was sworn in, against two club wielding Black Panthers in front of a Philadelphia polling station on November 2, 2008, as they were intimidating voters and making racist threats. Eric Holder is now being accused by...
