Department of Justice whistleblower who resigned over the “corrupt
nature of the dismissal” of the New Black Panther case testified
before the U.S.
Commission on Civil Rights this week.
Unfortunately, except for Glenn Beck and a few others, the nation's newsrooms are ignoring the story.
At the hearing in the commission’s Washington D.C. headquarters, J. Christian Adams accused the DOJ of racial bias for dropping charges against the New Black Panther Party. An attorney on the case, Adams testified that within the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division there is a pervasive and open hostility towards equal enforcement of the law. So insidious is this attitude that, according to Adams, even a minority DOJ employee was harassed by DOJ Voting Section staff for working on a case with white victims.
To support his allegations regarding the culture of the Civil Rights Division, Adams cited numerous second and firsthand accounts. Notably, he stated that Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes told him personally that the division is “in the business of traditional civil rights work.
"In other words, it will only pursue cases with minority victims," said officials at the Washington watchdog group Judicial Watch.
His testimony before the commission focused on the New Black Panther case in Philadelphia on Election Day 2008. Members of the New Black Panthers – clad in paramilitary outfits and brandishing a club – intimidated voters as well as poll watchers.
The individuals involved are seen on videotape verbally threatening citizens, hurling profanities and racial epithets. Using the 1965 Voting Rights Act, the Justice Department brought a voter-intimidation case against the group. Despite receiving a default judgment after the defendants in the case ignored the charges, the Obama Justice Department dropped the case in May 2009.
Adams testified that the Obama Administration used a political appointee to scrutinize former Voting Section Chief Christopher Coates. When that political appointee delivered the order to dismiss the Black Panther case, he admitted that he had not even read the memos in support of proceeding with it. Additionally, Adams mentioned that the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) lobbied in March 2009 to have the case dismissed.
During the Hearing, Adams refused to answer several questions concerning specifics on the DOJ’s handling of the case, citing fears that he would be revealing deliberative information. However, Adams confirmed that political appointees – not career attorneys – made the decision to dismiss the case.
Despite the Obama Administration’s stonewalling, the hearing reinforces that the New Black Panther Party story is not going away. The lack of transparency in this case forced Judicial Watch to sue the Justice Department.
In a racial double standard, the Obama Administration instructs government attorneys in the Justice Department’s civil rights division to ignore cases that involve black defendants and white victims, according to Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton.
The explosive revelation was made this week by a high-ranking Justice Department official who quit over the administration’s handling of a voter intimidation case against members of the radical black revolutionary group known as the New Black Panther Party. Career Justice Department attorneys were ordered to drop a complaint against the group for bullying voters in Philadelphia during the 2008 presidential election.
Clad in military attire, members were captured on video tape intimidating white voters as they attempted to enter a polling place. The Black Panther bullies used weapons, racial insults and profanity to deter voters and federal prosecutors filed a civil complaint in Philadelphia. The case was mysteriously and abruptly killed by a top Justice Department official just as a federal judge was preparing to punish the Black Panthers for ignoring the charges and refusing to appear in court.
The order came from Loretta King, who at the time was President Obama’s acting assistant Attorney General for the civil rights division. No explanation was offered for the sudden dismissal and outrage ensued among federal prosecutors handling the case. One of them is J. Christian Adams, a veteran election lawyer in the agency’s Voting Rights Division. He resigned in outrage and this week is testifying before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, a fact-finding nonpartisan agency with subpoena power to investigate discrimination complaints.
The commission is investigating why the Justice Department dropped the Black Panther case and has subpoenaed several of the attorneys involved, even though the agency has ordered them not to cooperate. In emotional testimony, Adams told the commission that the Justice Department instructs attorneys in the civil rights division to ignore cases -- like the Black Panther matter -- that involve black defendants and white victims.
In May, Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the DOJ, after the Justice Department determined that “access to the majority of the records” responsive to the request should be denied.
While the mainstream news media lambaste the Tea Partiers with accusations of racism, violence, hatred and other transgressions, these same reporters and pundits routinely turn a blind eye towards the violence perpetrated by liberal-left "activists."
"Routinely, Americans are spoon-fed allegations of Republicans attempting to disenfranchise Democrat voters, but in reality it is usually groups of activists who are allied with Democrats -- ACORN, New Black Panthers, SEIU, etc. -- discovered to be involved in using brutish tactics or corruption on behalf of their chosen politicos," said political strategist Mike Baker.
Baker gave NewswithView.com a few examples:
-- In Monterey, California several elderly Tea Party patriots holding a peaceful rally were accosted by a leftist who used vulgar language and threatened the participants.
-- In South Florida, Tea Party participants were assailed by pro-illegal alien amnesty, while in a separate incident in Florida, SEIU members brutally attacked a black man who dared to join the Tea Party movement. Besides beating him to the ground, they screamed racial epithets at him.
-- In North Carolina, a local GOP chairman was physically attacked at a Tea Party rally by a known supporter of President Barack Obama. The Tea Party member was assaulted while his wife and toddler watched in horror.
Department Ignores Illegal Alien Voters
Whistleblower J. Christian Adams, during his testimony before a Commission of Civil Rights committee regarding voter intimidation by the New Black Panthers, dropped a bomb on his former employers at the Department of Justice.
According to Adams, a Deputy Attorney General refused to investigate allegations of illegal voting during the last presidential election.
While the DoJ denies this allegation -- and the news media portray him as a disgruntled employee or Bush apologist -- a recent study released by the conservative think-tank the Heritage Foundation provides proof that illegal aliens and immigrants with green cards are committing rampant voter fraud in the United States.
Reports of ineligible persons registering to vote have raised concerns about state processes for verifying voter registration lists. States usually base voter eligibility on the voter's age, US citizenship, mental competence, and felon status.
Although individual states run elections, Congress has authority to affect the administration of the elections. The Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA) had set a deadline for states to have a statewide voter registration list and list verification procedures.
For example, the methods used in seven selected states to verify voter eligibility and ensure accuracy of voter registration lists were varied and include relying on registrant self attestation, return mailings, and checking against lists of felony convictions or deceased individuals. Some states, for instance, failed to do any more than ask on their application forms if the registrant was a US citizen. The applicant will merely check off the "Yes" box, but there is no action to verify the authenticity of that answer.
"The voter registration officials simply take the word of the registrant with no follow-up," said conservative political strategist Michael Baker.

"Some states that require some backup documentation merely ask for a utility bill or a driver's license — neither of which prove citizenship. In other words, legal or illegal aliens can easily register to vote in local and national elections," warns Baker.
According to a Congressional study of voter fraud, other challenges such as identifying duplicate registrations in other states or having insufficient information to match other data sources with voter registration lists may continue to be issues.
