Voter Intimidation Case Dismissed Because of White House Involvement

A year ago I wrote about the Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice dismissing the case of voter intimidation against two members of the New Black Panthers.  At first, I blamed Holder for letting his cronies go without prosecution, but now the whole story is making more sense.

J. Christian Adams, a former Department of Justice attorney had worked in the Civil Rights Division where he had brought charges of violation of civil rights against Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson, two members of the New Black Panther group for voter intimidation.  Evidence against the two men included videotape of them brandishing night sticks and intimidating voters outside a Philadelphia polling place in 2008.

He had a strong case against the two men, but Attorney General Eric Holder refused to press the charges any further and both men were released and the case dropped.  As a result of the DOJ’s failure to support the prosecution of civil rights violators, Adams resigned from his position with the department.

The New Black Panthers is a militant group that thrives on the intimidation of people.  Before any evidence had been released in the case of George Zimmerman’s shooting of Trayvon Martin, the New Black Panthers called for a bounty to be placed on Zimmerman, dead or alive.

Now, we are learning that the Department of Justice dropped the charges against Shabazz and Jackson because of communications from the White House.  Judicial Watch, obtained the documents indicating the White House involvement when they sued the DOJ under the Freedom of Information Act.  The judicial watchdog group then took their evidence before U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton.

In a move that truly surprised me, Judge Walton issue a ruling in which White House personal appointed by Barack Obama, had emailed the DOJ concerning the case against Shabazz and Jackson.  Not long afterwards, the case against the two members of the New Black Panthers was dripped.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton pointed out that Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez had testified that there was no involvement by any political leadership in the case.  However, the documents they received told a different story.  Fitton commented:

“Surely the public has an interest in the documents that cast doubt on the accuracy of government officials’ representations regarding the possible politicization of agency decision making.  So, it’s clear here the court found against the Obama administration and rejected their argument and again raised more questions about whether the Department of Justice is run by people who have a problem with the truth.”

In light of this new evidence, it all makes sense since there is also evidence that Barack Obama marched with the New Black Panthers in Selma, Alabama in 2007.  One year later, the New Black Panthers are caught on video forcing voters to vote for Obama.  Now we know for certain that the White House communicated with the DOJ on the case and then the case was dropped.

There is no doubt that the Obama administration is the most corrupt administration in the history of the United States.  We can’t trust the President, the Vice-President is a babbling idiot, the Senate majority leader spouts unsubstantiated claims on the Senate floor, the House minority leader is a raving lunatic who lies every time she opens her mouth, and the Attorney General believes he is above the law and does what he wants.

I just hope and pray that the American people see all of them for what they really are and vote everyone one of them out office.  America needs to clean up Washington and it has to start from the top down.
