During the 2008 elections, two members of the New Black Panthers were videoed intimidating voters to vote for Barack Obama. Voter intimidation is a federal felony and charges were filed against the two men, until the Attorney General Eric Holder instructed his Justice Department to drop all charges. J. Christian Adams was the DOJ attorney originally assigned to prosecute the case, but when he received orders from Holder, he was so upset at the overt disrespect for upholding the law that he resigned from the DOJ. Many suspected the orders to dismiss the slam dunk case came from the White House since Obama had marched with the New Black Panthers a couple years earlier.
During the investigation of Operation Fast and Furious, Holder again used the powers of the Department of Justice to protect the key Democrats being investigated including himself. Obama also stepped in to protect Holder by refusing to turn over subpoenaed documents. The ironic or should I say hypocritical aspect of the Fast and Furious investigation was that Obama ordered Holder to investigate Holder, as if that would reveal the truth. Obama and Holder also blocked a key witness from testifying before Congress in order to prevent being implicated in the illegal and failed gun-running operation.
Now, Obama’s Justice Department is protecting Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin from facing criminal charges. In 2013, the inspector general of the State Department had launched a criminal investigation against Abedin for receiving her salary while she was on unpaid maternity leave while working for Hillary when she was Secretary of State. The reason the investigation was launched in 2013, after Hillary had left the State Department, is that during her reign as Secretary of State there was no inspector general for the State Department like there was for most other government agencies and departments. However, the DOJ just announced that it was refusing to follow up on the charges made by the State Department inspector general.
This is typical for America’s top law enforcement agency under the dictatorial rule of Barack Obama. The DOJ is the ultimate enforcer of federal law, but over the past six and half years, they choose which laws to enforce and which ones not to enforce. They choose who to prosecute and who not to prosecute.
While protecting key Democrats, along with themselves, the DOJ has unmercifully prosecuted those who dare to oppose Obama and his agenda. The prosecution and constant attacks against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio are the best example. Over 200 citizens of the county petitioned Arpaio to investigate Obama’s birth certificate, so his Cold Case Posse launched the investigation at no expense to taxpayers. When they started holding press conferences to say that they found overwhelming evidence that the birth certificate presented by the White House was a forgery and that presenting it constituted fraud, the DOJ started attacking Arpaio and the Sheriff’s department for doing their job and they are still attacking him, trying to run him out of office.
When the top law enforcement agency repeatedly breaks the law, it sets the example for law enforcement agencies around the nation and can eventually lead to anarchy. Under the tenure of Obama, the Department of Justice should be renamed the Department of Injustice.
