Racist Obama Adminsitration?

I realize some posters will no doubt look askance at the Washington Times as a source but that is the point of the editorial-few "legitimate" media sources are even mentioning this travesty.

EDITORIAL: Media blackout for Black Panthers
Explosive racist allegations ignored by poodles in the press

October 15, 2005. (J.M. Eddins Jr./The Washington Times )

Where is the New York Times? Where is The Washington Post? Where are CBS and NBC? A whistleblower makes explosive allegations about the Department of Justice; his story is backed by at least two other witnesses; and the allegations involve the two hot-button issues of race and of blatant politicization of the justice system. A potential constitutional confrontation stemming from the scandal brews between the Justice Department and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. A congressman highly respected for thoughtfulness and bipartisanship has all but accused the department of serious impropriety. By every standard of objective journalism, this adds up to real news.

Or it would be real news if a Republican Justice Department stood accused. It would be real news if the liberal media weren't mostly in the tank for our celebrated but failing first black president.

Tomorrow, the Civil Rights Commission will hear long-awaited testimony from J. Christian Adams, who resigned from the Voting Section of the Justice Department after the department improperly ordered him to refuse compliance with the commission's lawful subpoena. Mr. Adams first told his story in public in these pages on June 28 and later did two major interviews with Fox News' Megyn Kelly. In those appearances, he flatly accused the Obama Justice Department of adopting an unlawful, immoral policy identified in previous Washington Times editorials - namely, enforcing civil rights laws against white perpetrators who victimized minorities but never against black perpetrators who victimize whites or Asians. If this is indeed the policy, it makes a scandalous mockery of the cherished American principle of "equal justice under the law."

All these allegations stem from what should have been a slam-dunk voter-intimidation case against members of the New Black Panther Party videotaped in menacing behavior outside a Philadelphia polling place in 2008. The Obama Justice Department dropped or seriously reduced all the charges or penalties in the case after it already effectively had been won. Mr. Adams' former colleague, longtime award-winning civil rights lawyer Christopher Coates, has been reported on multiple occasions to have backed Mr. Adams' version of events and of the Obama team's openly discriminatory policy.

If the department's motives are not racial or racist, Justice officials surely appear political. One of the Black Panthers against whom the department declined to press charges was an official poll watcher for the Democratic Party and an elected local party official. The department dropped charges just four days before another election, allowing him again to serve as a poll watcher.

Mr. Adams says the official most directly involved in dropping the case, Steven H. Rosenbaum - whose ethics have been subject to judicial sanction - refused to read his own team's legal briefs before deciding to dismiss the case. Mr. Adams accuses Thomas E. Perez, head of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, of providing false answers in testimony to the Civil Rights Commission.

On a parallel track, The Washington Times has reported strong circumstantial evidence suggesting that department officials may have consulted the White House before dismissing the case. That possibility, too, cries out for investigation.

These broad policy questions and suggestions of political chicanery are important. Do we have a nation of laws equally applied to all, or is justice being reduced to raw politics? Investigating such questions is the essence of the news business. Failure to look into such a scandal is evidence of the institutional corruption of the much-ballyhooed "fourth branch of government," a supposedly independent media.

Here is an article on the recent revelations of the Justice Dept lawyer:


And of course the effort of the progressives to marginalize the lawyer (note they seem to avoid addressing the substance of the issues):


Here is a still photo of the self-appointed polling "security" man:

(Note the weapon in his hand)

For those who missed the previous posts on this here is a video of the event:


Here is a contemporary news account (yes- the evil Fox News-again a reflection of the silence of the rest of the media)

The fox is in the henhouse.
Though just wait until the Supreme Court has a 'Liberal' (Socialist) majority. We aint seen nothing yet!
Racist? Maybe. I reckon he thinks he's Bliar/One-eyed Jock though. That whistleblower seems to be the target of a smear campaign from what (little) I've seen and heard. Dr. Kelly, anyone?

The MSM in the US seems to be selectively blind about reporting things that may brand it "racist", even if they are merely reporting and not offering an opinion.

By the way, has Obama produced a non-Photoshopped birth cert. yet, or is a village in Kenya still missing its idiot?

PS: Happy Independence Day!!

I cannot judge, from this distance at any rate, whether or not this is a deliberately racist stance. Politcal certainly, which is troublesome to say the least. It often seems from across here in the motherland that your governace system is overly political if you catch my meaning.

What is certainly clear is that representatives form either side should not be allowed to carry batons (or other devices such as pepper spary etc) as they "monitor" the awaiting electorate. If anything this should be a wake up call to prevent such a thing happening again. Electoral queues should be monitered or police by, well the police I guess. Seems startlingly different from what we experience here where the greatest danger is an old lady offering a cup of tea and a rock cake. :D

Going back to my first point, of the decision being political, this is not at all surprising all sides are guilty of protecting their own, and its seems that this has become more prevalent, or at least more overtly apparent, in the last 20 years of American politicals. It is deeply worrying, the days of Hustings and Enforcers should have been left back in the Nineteeth Century.
