  • Deep Corruption at the Obama Justice Department

    Start rattling the chains. Start ratcheting up the hue and cry. Fire up the masses. It's long past time to force mass resignations at, and possible prosecutions of members of, the Obama Justice Department --and, more broadly, of the West Wing itself. Forgive all the links, but the scope of the corruption is so large as to defy adequate descriptions, in a single column, of each abomination. The reality is that these Obama/Holder minions at DoJ are dangerous to the very heart of constitutional, republican (small 'r') government.

    ( - When asked whether al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden should have the right to remain silent and be given a lawyer, Rep.

On Capitol Hill on Nov. 19, asked Kucinich, “If and when the U.S. captures Osama Bin Laden, should he have the right to remain silent and be given a lawyer--told he can get a lawyer?” Kucinich said: “I think that America does best when the values that we want other nations...

    Two of Britain's most dangerous Islamic terrorists moved to new prison - because they complained fellow inmates were 'too white' Two of Britain's most dangerous terrorists have been moved to different prisons after complaining their fellow inmates were "too white". Dhiren Barot and Omar Khyam asked to be transferred from high-security Frankland prison near Durham. Barot masterminded a radioactive bomb plot involving limousines packed with nails and explosives and Khyam plotted to blow up Bluewater shopping centre in Kent. They said they were at risk from other inmates - who are predominantly white - and claimed the environment was "dangerous"...

    Jurors to be screened for anti-Muslim bias BY EVAN S. BENN Potential jurors in the upcoming trial of a Boca Raton doctor and three other men accused of conspiring to help terrorists will be screened for anti-Muslim biases. A federal judge in New York ruled Tuesday that attorneys for Dr. Rafiq A. Sabir, Tarik Shah, Abdulrahman Farhane and Mahmud Faruq Brent can ask possible jurors to fill out questionnaires before jury selection begins. The questions cannot ask potential jurors about their religious beliefs, U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska said. The men, all U.S. citizens who are Muslim, are scheduled...

    The police are considering proposals to share intelligence and information with Muslims before launching anti-terror operations. The plans, announced by the Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair, are part of a wider vision to engage more with British Muslims whose support police need in fighting terrorism. At a conference on Islamophobia, Sir Ian told his largely Muslim audience that combating the threat of extremism and terrorism was something his officers could not do alone. "It will not be the police and intelligence services that defeat terrorism, it will be communities," he said. "The most single important component in the domestic...

    Amid the cheering Northwestern football fans at Ryan Field, all Ashar Wasi wanted was a quiet place to pray. The only place he could find was a spot of less-than-clean floor in a public walkway. "We had to pray in front of the concession stand, in front of all the people," the McCormick junior said. Perhaps someone noticed. At last Wednesday's ASG meeting, the Muslim-cultural Students Association proposed a bill establishing a designated prayer area at Welsh-Ryan Arena for Muslim students for football and basketball games. McSA President Amir Siddiqui estimates more than 20 Muslim students are in attendance at...

    Bisher al-Rawi, a British resident held in Guantanamo Bay for four years, is rapidly losing his sanity, according to three lawyers who have visited him during the past month. Al-Rawi, 35, who was arrested by the CIA and local security forces during a business trip to Gambia in 2002, is showing clear signs of secure housing unit psychosis, a clinical condition that afflicts high-security prisoners, said Clive Stafford Smith, one of the lawyers. "I have had several clients on American death rows who have developed it and it's clear to me that he is sliding down that path," Smith said....

    THE Dutch government has announced that it would seek a way of banning the wearing of burqas and other Muslim face veils in public places, possibly becoming the first European country to impose such a ruling. The announcement comes at a time when the debate on such veils and whether they prevent Muslims from integrating has gathered momentum across Europe and drawn comments from leaders such as Britain's Tony Blair and Italy's Romano Prodi. Last December Dutch lawmakers voted in favour of a proposal by far-right politician Geert Wilders to outlaw face-coverings, partly on security grounds, and asked Immigration Minister...

    Not long ago in the hospital in which I once worked, a young male nurse was asked by the administration to remove the ironmongery with which he had recently adorned his face and ears. He was outraged by this assault on his inalienable right to mutilate himself in any way that he chose, which he believed to be narrow-minded. He was, after all, the owner of his face and ears in fee simple; they were his to dispose of as he saw fit. As it happens, he was a decent and dedicated young man, albeit one with the bad taste...

    A Muslim policeman is taking the Metropolitan Police to an employment tribunal over claims of racial and religious discrimination. It is claimed firearms officer Amjad Farooq was removed from a unit that protected senior figures, including Tony Blair, because he was seen as a security threat. A security check found his children attended a mosque associated with a Muslim cleric who has suspected links to a terrorist group, The Independent said. The 39-year-old was also allegedly told his presence might upset the American secret service, which worked closely with the Met's close-protection group. PC Farooq's solicitor, Lawrence Davies, said: "Muslims...

    British National Party leader Nick Griffin told a crowd that Islam was a "wicked, vicious faith" and Asian Muslims were turning Britain into a multiracial hell as they tried to conquer the country, a court heard today. Griffin urged the gathering in Keighley, West Yorkshire, to vote BNP to ensure "the British people really realise the evil of what these people have done to our country". The 47-year-old BNP chairman and fellow party activist Mark Collett face a series of charges arising out of speeches filmed by BBC journalist Jason Gwynne, who posed as a BNP supporter in Bradford, for...

But a number have kept their passes because, under French law, they must be allowed an opportunity to respond to charges before they are suspended. Some are still cleaning planes and handling baggage for flights to the United States at...

    Four Muslims were arrested outside the Old Bailey yesterday during angry protests against the trial of a man allegedly involved in protests against Danish cartoons. Anjem Choudary, who helped organise the anti-Danish protests, was once more involved as was Abu Izzadeen, who confronted John Reid, the Home Secretary, on a recent visit to East London. Mr Choudary said afterwards: "We should not be surprised at people doing something like 7/7. How else do you expect Muslims to express themselves? "We are a community under siege. It's going to blow up one day in everyone's faces." Male demonstrators, most wearing scarves...
