Posted on 09/27/2016 6:20:32 AM PDT by detective
Palantir Technologies co-founder Peter Thiel is evidently paying the price for backing Republican nominee Donald Trump, as the Obama administration has slapped his company with a frivolous lawsuit alleging racial discrimination against Asians.
The lawsuit, filed and announced Monday by the Department of Labor, threatens the complete cancellation of every contract Palantir has with the federal government a penalty worth $340 million, the lawsuit claims, which would end the company.
The claims in the lawsuit are laughable. The Obama administration alleges that Palantir discriminated against Asians. But it has to admit that Palantir, in fact, hired many Asians 11 out of 25 software engineers, for example. The government does not even bother to claim that Palantir deliberately excluded Asians. Rather, it argues that since only 44% of Palantirs software engineers are Asian, but 85% of the applicant pool was Asian, Palantir must, statistically, have discriminated against Asians.

Government prosecution and lawsuits are expensive and difficult to fight even if they are completely bogus.
Corruption at its highest levels ever. The Democrats are equal to the Mafia
I wish I was the judge receiving this.
Sanctions would not be mild.
At some levels, our government appears to have become a fascist enterprise.
Using all available means and tools of the bureaucracy, society, business, economics, culture - for the promotion of an ideology
With every passing week, the courts get more stacked with leftists. There will soon be nowhere to turn to seek relief from our leftist totalitarian government.
I wouldn't take any underlying complaint at face value, but it would be important to know if one exists at all.
It’s easy to delay something like this until President Trump sees to it the suit is dropped.
What kind of sanctions could the judge make against who?
(serious question- any legal beagles here?)
I mean in theory, if they just decided to throw the book at anyone and everyone involved, what could they do? Any way to go BEYOND the lawyers themselves and make the plaintiffs pay?
Will they also be suing all the Ivy League colleges that discriminate against Asia student applications?
I wouldn’t say ‘nowhere’..................
Thiel should counter sue, for $340M for defamation..............
I’ve noticed that in Obama’s vocabulary, Asians mean Middle Easterners. Which is it?
Democrats want ABSOLUTE POWER. They’re already corrupt &
want to be absolutely corrupt.
You mean Criminal Enterprise.
It is an extortion racket.
Yet when the pool is 85% white, all hell breaks loose if the hiring approaches 44% white.
EXACTLY my thought.
The lawsuit is a THUG SHAKEDOWN, just political terrorism.
This should be a campaign ad.
Democrats politicize the power of the government.
Democrats use the Justice Department and the FBI to enforce laws selectively.
Democrats use the IRS to target their enemies.
Democrats use the military for social experiments.
Democrats use tax dollars to fund their campaigns and buy and extort votes.
Democrats use their public service jobs to enrich themselves.
The mafia wouldn’t stoop this low.
To be honest if the government is saying this company is discriminates again Asians then they should sue themselves for the U.S. Government discriminates against Asians for they have the highest SAT scores but do not get admitted to college at times because of SAT curves by others, just an opinion.
