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.

    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...

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.

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.

    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...

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...

    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...

In a further demonstration of the Obama administration’s hypocrisy on racial policy, the president recently renominated James E. Graves for a federal judgeship. Those who have followed the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation scandal at the Holder Justice Department know that his administration’s political appointees have exhibited a blatant racial double standard — they are not interested in prosecuting minority defendants for civil rights violations.

    The Black Panther voter-intimidation scandal is approaching the boiling point on four different burners. Evidence grows that the Justice Department is using illegitimate means to keep a lid on legitimate investigations. Because his department can’t be trusted to police itself, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. needs to appoint a special counsel. On Wednesday, Judicial Watch - a private watchdog - filed a brief in its case seeking release of official memoranda, arguing that government stonewalling, “is about political interference in [Justice’s] decision-making process and [the department‘s] efforts to avoid public scrutiny of that interference.” Most abused is the “deliberative...

    Sometimes politicians make the mistake of listening to their staff at their own peril. Eric Holder is making that mistake when it comes to some of the biggest scandals on his watch, such as the dismissal of the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party. Holder’s interview with Charlie Savage of the New York Times shows that he has adopted a dug-in partisan position instead of a cautious and reasoned one. For an attorney general facing increased scrutiny from Congress, this partisan approach is damaging to the Department, and probably to Holder’s tenure as attorney general.In the...

If the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights finally adopts its report on the controversy, the great lengths Justice officials have taken to avoid scrutiny will be exposed. As the draft comes up for a vote on Friday, new findings from a Judicial Watch lawsuit will further eviscerate the lame excuses Justice has offered.

    New information has been uncovered by investigators delving into the looming White House/Department of Justice/Chicago political mob scandal. My latest video, posted in the left column, provides the details. Several items are worth noting. First, the New Black Panther voter intimidation case at the Department of Justice is only the tip of the iceberg. There is good reason and evidence to suspect that the Democratic Party has engaged in nationwide voter fraud and election tampering on a scale never before seen in American politics. The players allegedly involved are named in the video. Second, a separate scandal is developing regarding...

    The New Black Panther Party voter-intimidation case, which has rocked the Justice Department, will reach an important endpoint on November 19. At its regular business meeting tomorrow, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights will consider a draft report on its investigation of the Department’s scandalously politicized handling of the case. This case was unique in one vital aspect almost from its beginning — the existence of a visual recording of the New Black Panthers in their paramilitary, fascist-style uniforms, one holding a night stick, blocking the entrance to a polling place. That kind of direct evidence is very unusual...

    The American Spectator ^ | November, 2010 | Quin Hillyer
    Under attorney general Eric Holder, the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) is dangerously politicized, radically leftist, racialist, lawless, and at times corrupt. The good news is that it's also often incompetent. This means the Holderites can bungle their leftist lawlessness so badly that even the most reticent of judges are obliged to smack them down. The abuses by the Holderites are legion. They range from DOJ's infamous abandonment of the already-won voter-intimidation case against several New Black Panthers to multi-faceted assaults on traditional standards of voting rights and obligations; from a growing list of lawsuits deliberately destructive of border security...

    E-mails newly obtained by Judicial Watch strengthen contentions that politics motivated the Obama Justice Department's dismissal of a voter-intimidation case despite video of a nightstick-wielding New Black Panther Party member at a Philadelphia polling place. The e-mails show two political appointees' involvement in Justice's decision to dismiss, the watchdog group says. And, it notes, those e-mails contradict what Thomas Perez, assistant attorney general for Justice's Civil Rights Division, told the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights under oath: that decision involved "only career people." The e-mails lend additional credence to the long-held suspicion that politics drove Justice's decision-making in this case....

    Through a Freedom of Information Act request, Judicial Watch has obtained Justice Department emails that seem to contradict sworn testimony by Thomas Perez, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division. In testimony before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, Perez asserted that none of Justice’s political leadership had anything to do with the in the decision to stop pursuing voter intimidation charges against the New Black Panthers seen standing in front of a polling place in Philadelphia brandishing weapons during the 2008 election. The new documents include a series of emails between two political appointees: former Democratic election lawyer...

    The new leaders in the U.S. house may open official investigations into the New Black Panthers case and President Obama’s job offer to Joe Sestak. On the day after the GOP took control of the House, two Republican leaders openly critical of Obama will have subpoena power as the heads of two powerful House committees. Lamar Smith of Texas will oversee the House judiciary committee and Darrel Issa of California will chair the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Both men have been critical of the Justice Department’s handling of the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case in Philadelphia, and...
