Video: Project Veritas Exposes Holder’s Civil Rights Division’s Record of “Grotesque” Misconduct

Project Veritas Action today released a video exposing the “grotesque” prosecutorial misconduct of the U.S. Department of Justice and their Civil Rights Division following James O’Keefe’s arrest five years ago for conducting a sting operation in Mary Landrieu’s office in New Orleans.

O’Keefe says, “they threw the book at me despite no crime being committed . . . not even intent.”

The prosecutors in the case, with close ties to Sen. Landrieu, were later found to have committed prosecutorial misconduct in other cases by publishing anonymous online commentary about federal probe targets.

Two of my prosecutors, Jan Mann, a classmate of Mary Landrieu, and Sal Perricone were both barred from practicing in federal court in Baton Rouge due to their conduct.

Former U.S. Attorney, Jim Letten, resigned in the scandal. He was the longest serving U.S. Attorney in the nation. Letten had recused himself in my case, however, as you’ll see in the video released today, he also had a chance to literally, throw the book at me.

As it turns out, Project Veritas Action investigators uncovered two weeks ago that these same prosecutors had been posting anonymous online commentary in my own case!

Today, I’ll be filing several complaints, you can see them here, BUT, this isn’t about me.

Right now, our nation is being torn across racial lines due to the cases of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in Staten Island, New York.

Eric Holder has announced investigations by the Civil Rights Division in both of those cases.

Regardless of your thoughts on those cases, we’re announcing today that the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division should recuse itself from investigating those cases.

A veteran attorney in the Civil Rights Division, Karla Dobinski, was yet ANOTHER attorney who had committed “grotesque” prosecutorial misconduct that led to convictions of law enforcement officers.

Get this, Dobinski, was the leader of the “Taint Team” a component of the Civil Rights Division that was tasked polluting the public atmosphere on their active cases against cops.

She’s now part of the team investigating Ferguson and New York.

 

The same division, and even the attorney involved in past misconduct, is now investigating the cases of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

O’Keefe also shared via email a disturbing vignette about being harassed by the TSA, last night.

But thanks to the fun folks at the TSA at JFK International, I spent 45 minutes officially detained as they searched my bags and “interviewed” me. When I asked to call family to let them know I would be late, I was told to put my phone down and an agent barked, “you’re under our control now.”

Even better, when they asked what I do for a living, I explained I was a journalist that investigates government corruption. They actually laughed at me.

I know I’m not alone in my experience with the TSA, but it really sets the tone for what I’m releasing today. Power . . . corruption . . . arrogance.

I’ve driven from Kansas City to Florida to avoid the hassle and imposition of the TSA screening process because under the Obama administration’s direction, conservative activists can expect to be groped and even detained, even while screening for actual terrorists has been relaxed.

Counting the days until this abominable Regime is out of power.

Sunday Link-Around: The Latest Document Dumps and Obama’s Post-Shellacking Rampage Continues

outrage-ami150

You probably didn’t think it was possible to be anymore disgusted and outraged at our corrupt and depraved government than you already are.

But I’m here to disabuse you of that notion because new information coming out of the latest Regime document dumps coupled the knowledge that the GOP is likely going to sit on their hands for the next couple of years rather than do anything about the lawlessness – should do the trick.

Go read Sharyl Attkisson’s latest report from the Fast and Furious doc dump featuring a former DOJ Flack giving Holder Crisis Management advise on how to manipulate the media and Gruber the nation. Then, for sh*ts and giggles, go watch some old youtube videos of Holder testifying before Congress, employing said advice.

Said DOJ flack Matthew Miller to Holder in an email on October 3, 2011:

2. Find a way for you to get in front of a reporter or two about this. You don’t want to call a press conference on this because it will blow things out perspective, but if you have any events in the next few days (preferably tomorrow), you could find a way to take two or three questions on it afterwards. Or if that’s not easily doable, you could find a way to “run into” a couple of reporters on your way to something. Maybe Pete Williams, Carrie, Pete Yost — that
part can be managed. Most important is that you’re in front of a camera in a relaxed manner giving a response you have rehearsed…It would be ideal if those two things happened in the same day so you didn’t have two news cycles of responding — you want to do it all at once. There may be things you need to do to go on offense as well, but I think most important right now is that you answer the charge about covering this up. Then you can move to offense.

[Note: Pete Yost of AP wrote article on Bush-era gunwalking case that seemed to so impress Holder, he wrote ” WOW!” p. 539 AP presented the story as if it were “new” although I had published on the case, Wide Receiver, months earlier, with an exclusive interview with a confidential informant from the case.]

The more I think about the offense versus defense part, I do think you should go on offense, too. After explaining what happened, you could go back at them by saying something like: “But let’s be clear what this is all about. I’ve ordered an investigation into what happened. But there are people on the Hill who don’t care about what really happened. For them this has become about scoring political points and weakening an agency charged with cracking down on gun violence. There are a lot of powerful lobbyists and their allies on the hill who have wanted to cripple the ATF for a long time, and they’re using this as an opportunity to do so. I’m not going to let them. Its clear the ATF made mistakes here. We’ve cleaned house, and we’re going to fix the agency, but we’re not going to allow it to be put out of business by people carrying water for the gun lobby.” This part has to be really carefully crafted of and delivered, but I think it could be effective as a one-two punch. (One, explain what happened with your testimony; two, punch back.)

You know those long lost IRS emails that were supposedly gone forever due to several simultaneous, multi-agency computer crashes? As many as 30,000 of Lois Lerner’s emails have been found thanks to the efforts of federal watchdogs.

The IRS has already turned over thousands of Lerner emails to congressional investigators but has said the remainder are gone forever because Lerner’s hard-drive crashed in 2011. And in June, agency Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress that back-up tapes containing the missing emails have been destroyed.

“The IRS has continually dragged its feet, changed its story, and been less than forthcoming with information related to its egregious violation of Americans’ First Amendment rights,” said Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan, a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which has spearheaded congressional probes on the issue.

“These e-mails are long overdue, and underscore again why we need a special prosecutor to conduct an unhindered investigation. Hopefully these e-mails will help us get to the truth,” he continued.

Frederick Hill, a spokesman for Republicans on the Oversight committee, says that “it could take weeks to learn their content because they are encoded.”

Need more evidence that Obama is on a scorched earth rampage in the wake of the shellacking? How about this: he’s gone over the heads of congress again and released 4 more dangerous al Qaeda fighters from Gitmo:

President Obama has opened a new front in his hard line against the incoming Republican Congress by releasing more detainees from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, against lawmakers’ objections.

The Pentagon announced Thursday that four al Qaeda fighters from Yemen, including a senior figure who facilitated travel to Afghanistan for Arab extremists, and a Tunisian extremist would be transferred to Slovakia and Georgia.

The transfers leave 143 detainees at Guantanamo, which Obama has vowed to close. Republican lawmakers, who have been pressing the administration to stop releasing detainees amid reports that some former prisoners had joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, were furious.

The Regime continues to Gruber America on ObamaCare: Whoopsie Daisy: Obama Makes “Mistake” In Reporting 2013 Obamacare Enrollments, Falsely Claiming It Hit 7 Million Sign-Ups Threshold By “Mistakenly” Including Dental Plans Along With Health Care Plans

The Administration had set 7 million as its goal. It was very important, politically, that they be able to claim that had met it.

Alas, only 6.97 million people signed up for Obamacare.

So you know what time it is.

It’s time for an Obama “mistake” that just coincidentally enough happens to aid him politically — the Administration made a whoopsie-daisy and “accidentally” included almost 400,000 dental plan sign-ups in the health care figures, thus meeting its 7 million sign-up goals.

More grubering: White House: Immigration steps would boost wages:

 WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama’s moves on immigration would expand the labor force and increase worker productivity, according to a White House report Friday that estimates average wages would rise over a 10-year period.

The president’s critics and even some labor allies dispute that claim.

About that House Intel panel report that has liberals so amped up because it supposedly exonerates the Regime of any wrong-doing in  the Bengazi scandal. (yes, it’s still a scandal – why do you think Intel Chairman is retiring so abruptly at the tender age of 51?)

Via the Conservative Treehouse: The Motives Behind The November Rogers/Ruppersberger “House Intelligence Panel” Report On Benghazi…

Those of you familiar with the Benghazi Brief will note the alignment and expectation of the Rogers/Ruppersberger report.  Their report is exactly as we anticipated it would be.

With a House Select Committee (Trey Gowdy) already in place, you might rightly ask yourself why did Mike Rogers and Dutch Ruppersberger even produce a report?  As you read their House Intelligence Panel Report on Benghazi it is important to note a few key aspects:

• Both Mike Rogers and Dutch Ruppersberger are members of the Congressional Gang of Eight.  They are the ONLY authors.

This is not a House Intelligence “Committee” report on Benghazi.  This is only two committee members writing a report based on prior information.

• Both Rogers and Ruppersberger would have been briefed on the CIA operations in Benghazi during 2011/2012 as the covert operation began.

• President Obama signed a finding memo in 2011 permitting Operation Zero Footprint to begin. The congressional “gang of eight” held oversight responsibilities.

• Rogers, Ruppersberger along with Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Saxby Chambliss and Diane Feinstein would have been notified of the presidential authorization. In 2011 they were the congressionalGang of Eight.  Their lack of oversight reflected a willful blindness to the operation.

• In addition to the covert Zero Footprint Operation, the Benghazi CIA annex served as a rendition site. [We find this out in 2013 from Paula Broadwell, who was the pillow-talk recipient of information from 2012 CIA Director General David Petraeus. Broadwell and Petraeus had an extramarital affair.]

The Rogers/Ruppersberger Report is specifically designed, by wording, to provide political cover to both parties – Republicans and Democrats within the Gang of Eight particularly  included, and protected.

The Washington Times: That’s rich: Poverty level under Obama breaks 50-year record:

Fifty years after President Johnson started a $20 trillion taxpayer-funded war on poverty, the overall percentage of impoverished people in the U.S. has declined only slightly and the poor have lost ground under President Obama.

Aides said Mr. Obama doesn’t plan to commemorate the anniversary Wednesday of Johnson’s speech in 1964, which gave rise to Medicaid, Head Start and a broad range of other federal anti-poverty programs. The president’s only public event  Tuesday was a plea for Congress to approve extended benefits for the long-term unemployed, another reminder of the persistent economic troubles during Mr. Obama’s five years in office.

“What I think the American people are really looking for in 2014 is just a little bit of stability,” Mr. Obama said.

Although the president often rails against income inequality in America, his policies have had little impact overall on poverty. A record 47 million Americans receive food stamps, about 13 million more than when he took office.

The poverty rate has stood at 15 percent for three consecutive years, the first time that has happened since the mid-1960s. The poverty rate in 1965 was 17.3 percent; it was 12.5 percent in 2007, before the Great Recession.

About 50 million Americans live below the poverty line, which the federal government defined in 2012 as an annual income of $23,492 for a family of four.

 

Last but not least: Have you heard about the frequent White House visitor, Dem donor and “gay rights pioneer” who’s been accused of molesting a 15 year old boy? 

terrancebean3

A leading pro-abortion and gay rights activist who visited the White House numerous times has been charged with sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.

Terrance P. Bean, 66, is a major Democratic donor and helped found the Human Rights Campaign and the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund.

According to The Oregonian, Bean was arrested at his Portland home on Wednesday and charged with two counts of third-degree sodomy and one count of third-degree sex abuse for an incident involving the underage male that occurred in 2013 in Eugene, Oregon.

Bean’s 24-year-old ex-boyfriend Kiah Lawson was also arrested in connection with the crime on Thursday.

Both are accused of having a sexual encounter with the boy at a Eugene hotel room.

Totally not something you would expect from the criminal conspiracy masquerading as a political party, am I right?

 

Obama And Holder Release Messages For Ferguson Mob And Law Enforcement

Ahead of the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri, both outgoing (finally!)Attorney General Eric Holder and Emperor Obama released messages warning law enforcement to behave themselves.

“The Justice Department encourages law enforcement officials, in every jurisdiction, to work with the communities they serve to minimize needless confrontation,” Holder said.

“Over the past few months, we’ve seen demonstrations and protests that have sought to bring attention to real and significant underlying issues involving police practices, implicit bias, and pervasive community distrust.  And in most cases, these demonstrations have been both meaningful and responsible, and have brought vital issues to the attention of the public at large,” the Holder said in a video.

(That’s a fascinating take since the shooting sparked months of  violent protests, property destruction and looting in Ferguson, and law enforcement officials there have been bracing for more violence  after the decision is announced.)

“I know, from first-hand experience, that demonstrations like these have the potential to spark a sustained and positive national dialogue, to provide momentum to a necessary conversation, and to bring about critical reform.”

Full transcript, here.

What does he mean by “implicit bias?” Stopping a suspect who fits the description of a person who just robbed a convenience store? Should the police just stop doing their jobs so as not to show “implicit bias”?

And I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that this “national dialogue” Holder wants to inflict on the nation isn’t the pro-law and order dialogue you and I would prefer. The cringe-inducing term “critical reform” applies to law enforcement - not law breakers. 

NYC is slowly becoming the crime-infested sewer it was in the 70s and 80s because Communist Mayor Bill De Blasio is undoing  all the good policing practices instilled by former Mayor Giuliani. Holder and Obama would like to see those  policies duplicated in all of our cities, God help us.

Barack Obama

In Emperor Obama’s message  to the people of Ferguson, Missouri, he at least pretended that he wanted his minions out there on the street to “keep protests peaceful.”

“I think first and foremost, keep protests peaceful,” Obama said in the interview, which was taped in Las Vegas after he delivered a speech about immigration.

“This is a country that allows everybody to express their views, allows them to peacefully assemble, to protest actions that they think are unjust,” Obama said. “But using any event as an excuse for violence is contrary to rule of law, contrary to who we are.”

Why isn’t the president telling these people to go home and stop rabble-rousing, since he knows that the evidence exonerates Officer Wilson?  The fact that the Grand Jury has been examining all of the evidence and is making an informed decision –  means justice is being done in Ferguson? What on earth is there to protest? Why isn’t he trying to correct mistaken impressions instead of  trying to excuse them? Because oh – in the end – all this turmoil that he and Holder seem to be welcoming – will lead to “critical reforms.”

Lest we forget, the Emperor was once a Community Organizer, himself – and it shows.

Update:

Some Obama allies in the New Black Panthers have been indicted on weapons charges in Ferguson.

Via Gateway Pundit: 

On Friday Olajuwon Ali and Brandon Muhammad were indicted in federal court for illegal firearms purchase — in a bomb plot.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:

Two men have been indicted on weapons charges in federal court here for allegedly making straw purchases of two handguns at the Cabela’s sporting goods store in Hazelwood.

The indictment was handed up Wednesday and unsealed Friday accusing Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis of making false statements to obtain firearms. The defendants’ ages and addresses were not made public.

According to local News 4 the two men were arrested in connection with a plot to explode pipe bombs during protests.

As you may remember, the New Black Panthers are the Militant group that Holder refused to prosecute back in 2009 after some members engaged in what one prominent civil rights activist described as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation” that he had seen, including the voting rights crisis in Mississippi a half-century ago.

Again, in 2012, the Holder Justice Department looked the other way when the New Black Panthers in Sanford Florida,  put a bounty on George Zimmerman’s head and distributed  wanted dead or alive fliers. The Zimmermans had to live in fear in Sanford, just as Officer Wilson has gone into hiding in Ferguson – with a bounty also put on his head.

This is not how Justice works in a free country.

UPDATE II:

Excuse my French, but you have got to be shitting me. I did not just see this via the Independent Sentinel: 

Ferguson-mental-health-tips

It’s a joke, right?

UPDATE III:

Via Got News, another disgraceful example of the pressure the Grand Jury is under to indict Officer Wilson – which is the only reason this is taking so long.

In an audio interview with WUNC, the new leader of the Congressional Black Caucus called for Darren Wilson to be indicted and prejudiced the Ferguson grand jury.

Former judge and new leader of the Congressional Black Caucus G. K. Butterfield called for the grand jury to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown and warned that there would be consequences if the jury “turn their back on justice.”

UPDATE IV:

Tell me again how “meaningful and responsible” these protests are?….

Ferguson Cop’s Wife: DOJ Agents In Town Are “Not There to Guide, They’re There to Harm.”

promo240812495

According to a local report, police in Ferguson, Missouri are not happy at all with the “DOJ representatives” from the Civil Rights Division who have poured into their town in the wake of the Michael Brown shooting.

The report reveals just how upset cops and their family members are at these butt-in-skis who have been in Ferguson for months, stirring the pot and making life more difficult for them. One officer’s wife is of the opinion that  they are “not there to guide, they’re there to harm.”

KTVI Fox 2 reporter Chris Hayes didn’t name his sources for this story likely out of fear that they would be retaliated against – not only by the more violent protesters out on the street – but by the Obama/Holder Justice Department.

Activists often complain about officers without name tags. Department of Justice representative Christy Lopez jumped on the issue in a recent public meeting saying, “That’s a problem.  We need to fix that.”  A police wife told us that officers agree they should not be anonymous, but said they`ve lately faced extreme circumstances that have caused some to remove their name tags at times.

The police wife said officers have been, “screamed at by protestors, “we`re going to go to your house. We`re going to rape your wives then we`re going to kill them and we`re going to kill your children” and this is being screamed at them in the presence of Department of Justice agents.”

Those agents said a name tag is non-negotiable, regardless of the threat.

At a public meeting Christy Lopez said, “Especially when it’s tense.”

The police wife said DOJ agents are “not there to guide, they’re there to harm.”

She says a DOJ rep. criticized an officer who said he was afraid for his family.  The police wife explained, “The person was told, by the Department of Justice agent, if they`re afraid of the citizens of Ferguson, they shouldn`t be police.”

Yet Federal Agents appeared to be afraid when they called Ferguson police for help. An incident report, obtained by Fox 2, reveals a series of tense moments on September 25th. DOJ was meeting inside a business when a 911 call revealed subjects “stopping at (that business).” Then another 911 call describes “DOJ inside coffee house, requesting escort out of building.”

The wife of a Ferguson officer described another case in which a DOJ rep who was riding with a Ferguson police officer, had a chance to ride along with the officer as he responded to shots fired and looting that was going on at one of the beauty supply stores.  Rather than see how the officer reacted to the lawless situation,  the DOJ officer said “take me back to the station.” The officer wanted to respond because “that`s where his men were. They needed help.  The citizens needed help” but the  DOJ rep said “No. Take me back to the police department.”

The police wife continued, “There would’ve been a perfect opportunity for him to witness these guys in a situation, a tough situation and how did they handle it?  He opted instead to distance himself from it entirely.”

KTVI reporter Chris Hayes asked the officer’s wife, “Who are these guys (with the DOJ)?”

She responded, “We don`t know.”

Because THEY don’t have to wear name tags.

Hayes goes on to report that the Ferguson officers have been trying to get the names of these shadowy operators from the DOJ who have been organizing the protesters in their town, but they are being stonewalled. Hayes himself tried to  get a list of names from a DOJ spokesman for his report, but was met with a stone wall and an attempt to pry information out of him.

So I asked for a list of names, last Thursday. A DOJ spokesperson in Washington D.C. said, “I will have to check to see if that information is publicly available.” Yesterday, I asked again and I also asked for a response to the specific allegations you heard in this report.  The spokesman responded, “Do you know the name of the (Ferguson officer) who sent the letter?” and “Can you tell me more about your story?”

According to the officer’s wife, “the only people that have been given voice are the people who will support what appears to be their desired outcome.”

It doesn’t look like they’re going to get “their desired outcome” but an announcement is expected any minute now.

Newly Released Docs Show WH and DOJ Targeting Sharyl Attkisson For Investigating Fast and Furious

Judicial Watch is crowdsourcing the huge document dump that was  finally provided by the Obama Administration in response to their Freedom of Information Act lawsuit on Operation Fast and Furious.

A total of 10,112 documents, comprised of approximately 42,000 pages, were disclosed to Judicial Watch in the new production.  Only Judicial Watch has forced their release into your hands. We invite you to review these documents and help us uncover any evidence related to the Operation Fast & Furious scandal hidden within.

As Doc Zero (John Hayward) points out in his Human Events piece,  the release of the docs were not in response to a FOIA request – 

The request got ignored by the Most Transparent Administration In History, so they had to file a lawsuit.  The document production is occurring under the stern gaze of a federal judge.)

Here’s a little taste of what has already been discovered, offered by Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton as a bit of catnip for aspiring crowd-source helpers interested in searching through the 42,000 pages of documentation President Obama risibly concealed by asserting executive privilege:

We are posting these documents for the public to review and hope that crowd-sourcing our investigation will lead to more accountability for the Fast and Furious outrage.  The documents are explosive.  For instance, our initial review of the documents shows the DOJ and White House targeted then-CBS journalist Sharyl Attkisson:

On October 4, 2011, Holder’s top press aide Tracy Schmaler tells White House Deputy Press Sectary Eric Schultz, “I’m also calling Sharryl’s [sic] editor and reaching out to Scheiffer. She’s out of control.

Schultz responded, “Good.  Her piece was really bad for the AG.”

Schultz also detailed to Schmaler that he was working with a journalist (Susan Davis, formerly of the National Journal) to target Rep. Darryl Issa (R-CA), the House Republican leading the charge on Fast and Furious:

“And I sent NJ’s Susan Davis your way. She’s writing on Issa/FandF and I said you could load her up on the leaks, etc.”

(Davis authored a critical profile of Issa a few weeks later.)

This one email chain implicates both the Obama White House and the Department of Justice in an effort to secretly undermine a congressional investigation and to suppress critical media reporting of the Obama administration.  No wonder Obama waited until after he was safely reelected (and even after this year’s elections) to finally release this material that documents obstruction and abuse at the highest levels.

The documents show that Obama made the extraordinary assertion of executive privilege over emails between Eric Holder and his wife, Sharon Malone.  The emails show that Holder sent his spouse internal DOJ emails about Fast and Furious developments.  There is nothing that would have been covered by executive privilege in these or other key records that show Barack Obama abused his power to keep them secret during his reelection campaign up until now.

You may remember DOJ Press Aide Tracy Schmaler and White House Deputy Press Sec Eric Schultz as the thugtastic duo who called Sharyl Attkisson to scream and cuss at her when she was working on the Fast and Furious story CBS in 2011. She recounted the experience on the Laura Ingraham radio show in October of 2011.

Eric Schultz also conspired with former  national journal “reporter” Susan Davis to attack House Oversight Chairman Darryl Issa.

When Attkisson provided details last month  about the outrageous and shocking  hackings of several of her computers by the US government, a cabal of left wing journalists led by the pro-Obama stooges at Media Matters did their best to ridicule (and “controversialize”) her allegations (with Schmaler’s approval.)

But they doth protest too much. The truth is closing in and it must be very uncomfortable to be part of the increasingly exposed crime syndicate known as the Obama administration.

More on that at Twitchy.

Sens. Cruz and Lee: AG Nominee Should Say Whether She Approves of Executive Amnesty (Updated)

download (1)

Obama’s pick of Loretta Lynch to replace Eric Holder (the most corrupt Attorney General in American history) is surprisingly uncontroversial. She is respected by Republicans and Democrats alike and has no known scandals in her background. If there is anything about her that would be disqualifying – it hasn’t been discovered yet. 

But Republicans plan to ask her a question in which a wrong answer would be considered disqualifying.

Via Breitbart News:

Cruz, Lee, incoming Senate Budget Committee Chairman Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, each said before the election that Obama’s choice to replace Holder must denounce Obama’s planned executive amnesty.

McConnell said that it should be a “condition” of the nominee’s confirmation that they oppose executive amnesty.

Today Sens. Ted Cruz, R-TX, and Mike Lee, R-UT, released the following statement in regards to the president’s nomination of U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch.

“President Obama’s Attorney General nominee deserves fair and full consideration of the United States Senate, which is precisely why she should not be confirmed in the lame duck session of Congress by senators who just lost their seats and are no longer accountable to the voters. The Attorney General is the President’s chief law enforcement officer. As such, the nominee must demonstrate full and complete commitment to the law. Loretta Lynch deserves the opportunity to demonstrate those qualities, beginning with a statement whether or not she believes the President’s executive amnesty plans are constitutional and legal.”

UPDATE:

I spoke too soon. It has been discovered that Obama’s pick to replace Eric Holder is indeed a race-baiting fellow traveler. We were wrong to imagine Obama was capable of appointing a straight shooter.

Should have realized after seeing this, Did Al Sharpton Just Pick The Next Attorney General?

Via Pundit Press: Obama AG Nominee Lynch: Southern Schools Use Zero Tolerance Policies to Send Minorities to Prison:

In a speech given at Long Beach earlier this year, President Obama’s new nominee for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, specifically called out voter ID laws as racist and schools as disproportionately using zero tolerance policies against minorities. The video was uncovered by Pundit Press.

The remarks came near the end of a long speech, explaining the examples that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela set for people.

Ms. Lynch then began talking about the inequities that she sees in the United States, first covering the fact that she see voter ID laws as legislation aimed to disenfranchise minorities.

Buckle Up: The Ferguson Saga To Climax As Soon As This Weekend

The Ferguson/Michael Brown saga is panning out just about how you expected it would after the first pieces of solid evidence came out back in August. I reserved judgement, like I always do when racially charged  stories like this one hit – because if we’ve learned one thing over the years – it’s that the initial narrative that comes out is almost always completely bogus.   The story the racial agitators told about an unarmed “gentle giant” with his arms up in the air, getting plugged with lead by an insane racist cop is the horse hocky you always suspected it was.

The same evidence we eventually saw, our president and attorney general saw – and they opted to rub raw the wounds of racial animus with the hope that it would lead to electoral success in the midterms. It didn’t. But it did lead to millions of dollars in property damage and massive social unrest.

Too many Americans of all races see what is going on – Communists, Islamists, Occupiers and other radicals streaming into the area and with the acquiescence of the Obama administration, using extortion to advance their agenda.

Case in Point: St. Louis University. The Jesuit institution found David Horowitz in 2010  too radical to be allowed a platform to speak on their premises, but four years later welcomed with open arms the Ferguson-linked “Occupy SLU movement.” Talk about a perfect mark for these brazenly opportunistic radicals.

On October 8th the black grievance industry (BGI) helped the Ferguson protesters coordinate the Occupy SLU movement at Saint Louis University. SLU is a private catholic university. Yesterday the occupiers packed up and left. Today the motives and agenda becomes clear.

The BGI extorted the school to give race-based concessions including payoffs for black students, scholarships, black studies programs and additional aid for black students only. Apparently, the school president, Fred P. Pestello, Ph.D., acquiesced:

stlu-blackmail

 

In exchange for meeting the extortion demands the Occupy movement would leave the school campus – but the school, not the occupiers, would have to clean up their mess.

Saul Alinsky would be proud. Clearly the Attorney General is – he sent a a letter of high praise to St. Louis University President Fred Pestello, commending him for his handling of  the Occupy SLU protest.

After mid term shellacking Part Deux, who do you suppose  the first people Obama met with at the White House were? If you guessed “a group of the nation’s most egregious racial agitators” - you are correct.

“President Obama huddled with top civil rights leaders at the White House on Wednesday, hours after his party lost control of the Senate”….

Attendees at the meeting included NAACP president Cornell Brooks, National Urban League president Marc Morial, and Rev. Al Sharpton.

Nobody can predict with 100% certainty what the grand jury is going to decide, but it’s looking increasingly like officer Darren Wilson will not be indicted (nor should he be.) That decision could come as early as this weekend.

RUMORS SWIRLING – MIKE BROWN DECISION THIS WEEKEND

Obama and Holder are getting their ducks in a row in preparation for that result.  You can expect the DOJ’s “Community Relations Service” to be heavily involved in Ferguson when the bomb hits. Their job won’t be to quell the flames but to make excuses for them.

The CRS activity as written would have you believe they are a civil rights entity whose primary purpose is to keep the peace and racial harmony amid potentially explosive social events like the Trayvon Martin or Mike Brown shootings.

Historically that’s a fair interpretation of their original intents.  However, since Attorney General Eric Holder took charge of the DOJ they have taken on a divergent goal.

The former head of the CRS, Ondray Harris, (quoted in the above statement) actually quit working for the federal government because President Obama and Eric Holder forced a very specific racial agenda into the agency.   The CRS was changed from aiding and assisting civil rights challenges, to a position of advocating for the professionally black.

The CRS is now primarily focused on controlling the “optics” of the various civil rights groups; they are, in essence, in the public relations business.   In the Eric Holder era we have to change the descriptions to give more accuracy to the new reality.

Has the Regime’s extortion racket  kicked into high gear? The Magic 8-ball says “You may rely on it.”

Via Gateway Pundit, meet  Bassem Masri, one of CRS’s projects: a Hamas fan and vocal Ferguson protester, who was arrested for assaulting a police officer:
Bassem Masri

Bassem Masri posted video where he verbally assaulted police in Ferguson, Missouri.
Now he’s charged with assaulting a police officer.

On Wednesday Bassem Masri tweeted out that he was contacted by Holder’s DOJ and will meet with them to discuss police reform.

What sort of concessions do you suppose the Obama/Holder/racial grievance cabal are going to try to wrench out of the Ferguson police Dept. “or else?”

As the Conservative Treehouse (a font of valuable information on Ferguson and Trayvon Martin) noted, CRS has it’s work cut out for them as the PR firm for the thugs running rampant in Ferguson.

So far, for the CRS, the Saint Louis/Ferguson mobs have been difficult to protect from their own broadcasted image.  But they are expending massive resources in/around the area to diffuse the imagery of rioting and looting black mob violence ahead of the Grand Jury no-bill decision.

The imagery is the most important aspect, this will be the primary focus.  Remember the CRS is no longer in the business of racial healing – their mission objectives now are to protect the public image of the black grievance industry; they are the PR firm.

CRS members are difficult to spot, but if you know what too look for -and you remember the goals- you will be able to identify the CRS members as they appear.

They are usually AME church members, civic leaders, or professional leftists and community organizers, many from the immediate area who are focused -primarily- on racial issues.   About half of the CRS activists will be from the outside Saint Louis as they operate based on regional areas of responsibility; the other half will be contracted and paid from within the local community.

The “community” had a meeting, last night, and sent one of their own to the hospital – a misguided white college student, who has been marching in unity with the agitators and videotaping them for his live-stream channel.

From the Justice for Mike Brown Facebook page, in the agitators own words:

The meeting we had earlier at the church at 9950 Glen Owen Dr, St Louis, MO, alot of us attended the meeting but what happened with the attack on a peaceful protester was wrong and should have been handled a different way. Some of us already know that no live-streaming is allowed at the meeting and but when they told him to stop live streaming he probably didn’t hear or understand and when everbody just rushed him and told to stop live streaming and get the F××k out and then all of sudden he gets jumped and attacked. He is a student at UMSL college and he has been out there with us protesting on regular nights. Some of us know who he is, his name is Chris Schaefer, and NO, he’s not working with the police, he is on our side. But like I said again, for some of yall to just attack him having him, running down Chambers St towards West Florissant to the Walgreens scared for his life and he steady screaming crying and flagging down cars asking for help, but he only gets help when he runs inside the Walgreens, that was wrong and F××ked up it really was he was they took him to the hospital by ambulance to be treated for injuries. That’s making us look bad, the ones that come out to protest peacefully, smh, and he is white but that don’t mean to attack him like that! We have supporters of all races!

Holder’s partner for police reform, Bassem Masri defended the attack on Twitter.

Yo this had nothing to do with the kid being white,in STL if u don’t respect some1 saying don’t record us & u record,u asking4 it

Here is Schaefer’s pathetic hospital room statement:

The Youtube comments reveal God-awful racial divisions the likes of which we  haven’t seen since the 60s.

I hope the Community Organizer in Chief is proud.

The Daily Caller for more on Bassem Masri and the meeting he attended on Thursday.

 He does not make clear which DOJ meeting he attended, but the timing coincides with a two-day event being held by the agency’s Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) division.

The stated goal of that meeting, which was closed to the press, is to “build trust and strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and the communities they serve is the first of several regional collaborative reform trainings on law enforcement strategies and best practices.”

Masri wrote after the meeting on Thursday that “DOJ said the Administration is FULLY aware of the national anger against law enforcement” and that it planned to implement any reforms it enacted in Ferguson “on a national level.”

If the DOJ’s goal with the session is to bolster the relationship between the community and local police, Masri seems to be an odd choice to provide guidance.

St. Louis’ local Fox affiliate profiled Masri last month, calling attention to his aggressive stance towards police.

“What you doing here, bro?” Masri is heard saying during one of his live streams to a St. Louis police officer on Oct. 8, the night another black teenager, VonDerrit Myers was shot by an off-duty police officer.

“Get the fuck out of here with your coward ass boys!” Masri shouted. ”Your life is in danger, homie, you gotta go.”

“I’m praying for your death, and your death and your death,” Masri said, calling out individual police officers.

In another confrontation with police, Masri compared officers to the brutal terrorist group the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

“I see ISIS in front of me,” Masri said to officers before expressing his support for another terrorist group, Hamas.

“Hamas? They’re real men. You go stand with Hamas and see if you’re going to stand a day,” said Masri.

Masri first gained national attention when, on Oct. 20, he shut down a CNN live broadcast in Ferguson because he and other protesters thought the network was biased.

“You’re all run by Zionists,” Masri shouted at CNN anchor Sarah Sidener.

“They’re all run by Israel, so they’ve all got to go,” he is heard saying while filming the encounter for his live stream.

The guy’s rabidly anti-police, anti-Israel, and pro Hamas. No wonder the Regime is reaching out to him. I’m surprised they haven’t given him a job in the Civil Rights division of the DOJ.
