J. Christian Adams: DOJ Opponents of Race-Neutral Law Should Explain Themselves
Tuesday, July 6th, 2010 - by J. Christian Adams
Today, I testified to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights about the Department of Justice’s hostility to race-neutral law enforcement. I hope these hearings spur those responsible to explain their actions to Americans.
J. Christian Adams is an election lawyer who served in the Voting Rights Section at the U.S. Department of Justice. His website is www.electionlawcenter.com.
The Transportation Security Administration said Tuesday it would not block its employees from accessing websites with “critical commentary,” following a report that the agency instituted a new policy barring “controversial opinion” sites in the workplace.
The agency released a broad statement acknowledging that it restricts websites internally but denying that any sites would make the blacklist based on editorial content.
“TSA routinely makes improvements to our information technology systems to stay ahead of evolving cyber threats to keep our systems secure. As part of this continued effort, TSA uses a security technology to limit access to categories of web sites that pose an increased security risk,” the TSA statement said. “TSA does not block access to critical commentary about the organization.”
The agency later clarified for FoxNews.com that it decided against including the “controversial opinion” category in the software it is using to restrict websites.
CBS News first reported that the TSA sent around an e-mail to staff informing them that five categories of websites had been determined “inappropriate for government access” and would be cut off. According to CBS News, those categories included: chat, controversial opinion, criminal activity, extreme violence and gaming.
The TSA later said in its written statement that employees “will be able to access web sites required for work purposes.” The statement also said the agency created websites like The TSA Blog to “promote diverse opinions.”

TSA to Block “Controversial Opinion” on the Web Posted by Pia Malbran (CBS)
It states that as of July 1, TSA employees will no longer be allowed to access five categories of websites that have been deemed “inappropriate for government access.”
The categories include:
??? Controversial opinion
??? Criminal activity
??? Extreme violence (including cartoon violence) and gruesome content
The email does not specify how the TSA will determine if a website expresses a “controversial opinion.”
There is also no explanation as to why controversial opinions are being blocked, although the email stated that some of the restricted websites violate the Employee Responsibilities and Conduct policy.
The TSA did not return calls seeking comment by publication time.
~I mean come on now, would MSM even want to print this if it was not true?!
Is he kidding? Has Obama’s demagoguery really come to this – standing on a balcony at the White House with Michelle, ripping on the founding fathers because they owned property? You can almost see Lenin’s ghost partying alongside the rock band The Killers and eating hot dogs:
Obama's Tooth Fae
We celebrate the principles that are timeless, tenets first declared by men of property and wealth but which gave rise to what Lincoln called a new birth of freedom in America-civil rights and voting rights, workers’ rights and women’s rights, and the rights of every American. And on this day that is uniquely American we are reminded that our Declaration, our example, made us a beacon to the world.
All megalomaniacs succumb at some point to delusion and their wings turn to wax hurling them toward the ground. And Barack Obama may not fare any better – look at poor Al Gore. But before the downfall their hypocrisy reaches Dantesque proportions. Lord Barry and Lady Michelle raked in 5.5 million last year. His home is worth 1.6 million. They’ve spent tens of thousands on date nights and millions on obesity programs while the One and his family visit cupcake bakeries and hamburger joints.
Are the Obamas entitled and the founding fathers just more slave-owning “typical white” people? Whatever Obama’s motivation, he’s flying too close to the sun, he’s getting careless. The American people may be easy marks for a while, but these kinds of disparaging remarks about the patriots that gave their lives so he could stand on that balcony will not prevail. The president better take a good look at those 2009 tax returns.
WASHINGTON — President Obama intends to bypass Congress and appoint Dr. Donald Berwick to head Medicare and Medicaid, the White House announced Tuesday — filling the job while Congress is in recess to get around Republican opposition that threatened to derail Berwick’s confirmation.
Berwick’s supporters say he is the right man in the right place at the right time. But his opponents have lined up against him. They say that while he may be a the highly respected doctor, he is also an outspoken proponent of the British health care system, which they say is all wrong for Americans.
* By appointing Berwick now, while Congress is out of session for the July 4 holiday break, Berwick can assume the post of administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services without undergoing confirmation hearings in the Senate. Democrats want to avoid a nasty confirmation fight that could reopen the health care debate. Berwick was nominated in April but no confirmation hearing had been scheduled.
The recess appointment will allow Berwick to serve through next year without Senate confirmation.
* Also being appointed Wednesday were:
–Philip E. Coyle III as associate director for national security and international affairs at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
–Joshua Gotbaum as director of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.
President Obama’s image of leadership flounders in the Gulf of Mexico. While Governor Jindal displays the true qualities of leadership, our president is stuck in Saul Alinksy gear, demonizing a foreign corporation instead of actually doing anything constructive. Disgust at Obama’s genuine incompetence at this genuine ecological disaster stretches across party lines and the ideological spectrum.
Barry blames Bush for everything about our dismal economy. A partisan rubber stamp Congress has given Obama the wild and wasteful expenditures which his childish, failed quasi-Keynesian witches’ brew prophesizes will spend us into prosperity. It hasn’t worked. Now, oddly, congressmen facing electoral apocalypse have stopped writing our wise leader a blank check against the federal treasury.
Obama a closet Marxist
The nomination of radical leftist women to the Supreme Court simply reinforces the image of Obama as a closet Marxist. His cabinet choices reinforce this image of radicalism. The American people, during Obama’s administration, profess to be conservative and, increasingly conservative according to Gallup, a poll which already shows that conservatives outnumber liberals in every single state of the Union.
The Blagojevich Trial, which has already hinted at Obama’s connection to the thoroughly seamy side of Chicago political corruption, may do more than hint at criminal misconduct in the future. Other creepy people, like Tony Rezko, keep popping up with common connections to Obama and Blago. How dirty is Obama? No one knows, but no Democrat could rise out of the cesspool of Chicago politics without some ethical problems.
The cumulative impact of these corrosives on Obama’s presidency is becoming very clear. Although polls differ in the precise measurement of unhappiness with Obama as president, the trends in all the polls are consistent and the combined averages of these various polls is clear and stark: confidence in President Obama has fallen dramatically and a plurality of Americans now disapprove of the job he has done as president.
It is time for President Obama to take a big hike By Dr. Laurie Roth
Stock markets and consumer confidence have fallen to new lows in June in reflection of a massive lack of growth in jobs in the private sector. The Conference Board just reported that consumer attitudes dropped from 62.7 in May to 52.9 in June. Many are speculating now that we are in the beginnings of a depression and certainly not recovering in housing, jobs and markets.
While the markets and economy is bucking widely to the out-of-control spending and lack of leadership with the Obama administration and this congress, we see oil splashing up on Gulf shores, another reflection of profoundly incompetent leadership and intervention by Obama.
With the oil spill disaster and economy we see Obama’s worldview and priorities which lead and reflect all his responses and strategies. With him, every disaster and national challenge has to be manipulated and submit to his transforming passion of Marxist/socialism, accumulation of power and control.
Just look at the Gulf disaster Obama blender or reality.
* Thirteen countries offered state-of-the-art equipment and money help. The Obama blender said no, hiding behind the Jones act, which could have easily been set aside as Bush did with Katrina. This was another sham of leadership by this President.
* Enough of the Gulf disaster, only made massively bigger due to Obama’s total incompetence and environmental agenda! Now, our economy is tilting like the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The Housing market continues to tank. Job growth is way lower than many expected, stocks are tumbling and we seem to be drifting aggressively into the toilet bowl of severe recession, if not depression. Again, this is all because we have a President and congress who could care less about our economy, health, or recovery.
There are tons of reasons why Obama should be impeached or resign. He is a complete failure in ability to lead our nation according to our laws, our constitution and our traditions. He is a complete usurper and obviously wasn’t born in the United States. Where is the birth certificate? Even a former high up election official, Tim Adams, who had worked in Hawaii, said there was no Obama birth certificate there. Gee, what a shock!
* Finally, along with all the national security blunders and kiss up to Islam, he is continuously demonizing and betraying Americans and conservative leadership. Just last week, Mexico joined the Obama administration in filing suit against Arizona’s Immigration Law. They called their concerns ‘grave’.
Once again, Obama has ignored the vote and will of the people, specifically in Arizona, sided with foreign countries in shredding, targeting and attacking his own people such as his meeting and whorish compromise with Calderon of Mexico and calling China to apologize for the law.
This President is incompetent, a liar, a socialist/communist and dictator. He has a frightening staff and congress that reflects the same worldview. The American people are simply in the way and so is their constitution and values. They are only okay if they will submit to being controlled fans that worship him and give him money.
I say, no, no and BIG FAT NO!!! It is time for real conservatives and Americans to take back the House and Senate. Then it is time to repeal the Obama care bill with enough votes that Obama can not veto it. It is time to find Representatives and Senators who will act on and support impeachment of this President in the fall!!!
Our country is at stake. Freedom is at stake. Obama and his UN American staff must go.
Obama’s Bizzaro World Has Real World Consequences by Thomas Del Beccaro @ Big Government
As the saying goes, this would be funny, if it was not so serious. As each day of the Obama Administration wears on, the disconnect between reality and the Administration, between America and Washington, just keeps growing. Consider these examples among many:
* The Bank Bill: Does it bother anyone that the same Congress that is giving us $1.5 trillion deficits as far as the eye can see is writing a 2000 page bill telling banks how to balance their books? Unfortunately, by almost all accounts but Congress’ – this bill will make lending more difficult, and therefore prolong our recession, at the same time it exposes America to more bailouts for lack of leverage reform.
* Russia Spies: According to a Justice Department official the charges are “’the tip of the iceberg’ of a Russian intelligence conspiracy against the United States.” Obama knew about the charges prior to a meeting with the Russian President but there is no word on whether he brought it up let alone scolded the Russians. To the contrary, according to the State Department: “the arrests merely show that the two countries have not yet reached the level of “trust and cooperation” where they can be completely open with one another” and Obama “had no “personal reaction” to the case and that the arrests should not hurt the administration’s attempts to mend fences with Moscow. “I do not believe that this will affect the reset of our relationship with Russia,” according to White House Spokesman Gibbs. I am certain Putin (and Iran, the Taliban, and anyone else fighting the US) are so very relieved.
* The Oil Spill. Government regulations push oil drilling farther and farther offshore thereby making it a riskier undertaking. BP takes even more risks and together we get an enormous spill. Obama says he is in charge of the clean-up – literally – yet day after day after day (70 to be exact) Obama stopped skilled, foreign parties from helping and allowed the damage to increase well and way beyond what should have been the case. Obama wants BP’s shareholders (they own BP and they are the people paying the price) to pay for it all but shouldn’t BP’s shareholders wonder why the US government made the problem worse and, therefore, demand what lawyers call a finding of comparative fault? – thereby making the US government (you and me) pay for some of the damage?
* The Kagan Nomination. She has never been a Judge. Senator Feinstein says that her lack of experience is “refreshing.” Really? Would you go to a brain surgeon with a lack of experience and say that was refreshing? Surely I exaggerate – after all – merely the Constitution is at stake.
Perhaps the best (or worst) of their bizarro world, however, in which we live is . . .
The “Recovery Summer” Tour. The Obama Administration is out on the stump selling you a recovery they claim they fostered with the so-called Stimulus Bill. Every day Obama assures us that the recovery is taking hold or strengthening. Of course, that requires you to forget that for 15 months unemployment has been well above 9% – the unemployment rate the Obama Administration said would take hold if we did nothing. Does that mean we spent $800 billion (on non-shovel ready projects – ok, ok, 96% of it on non shovel ready projects) for nothing?
Certainly not. It bought us a lecture from the welfare states of Europe on fiscal imprudence and it is strangling our investment portfolios which causes consumer confidence to plunge, reduces our purchasing power, which results in fewer jobs, which results in lower tax revenues which make the unwise want to raise tax rates which further strangles our investment portfolios, which further causes consumer confidence to plunge . . . . well, you get the point – even if Obama and Washington don’t.
The Obama Administration’s lawsuit challenging a controversial Arizona law cracking down on immigration is based on a legal doctrine known as preemption. It is a rather straightforward legal conflict that the Supreme Court has faced several times in recent years coming down on either side of the divide giving supporters and opponents of the Arizona law reason to claim the legal high ground.
Preemption is based on the premise that federal oversight is preferred in some areas or preempts state and local laws that cover the same ground. The theory is that federal law works best in providing uniformity with rules and regulations that could never be achieved in all 50 states. This is particularly important for large businesses that generally prefer to work under one set of federal rules rather than a hodgepodge of limitations that can vary widely throughout the states.
In this case, the Obama Administration claims the controversial Arizona measure is preempted by federal law. The federal government asserts it has the primary statutory responsibility of enforcing the country’s immigration policies and that Arizona cannot pass a measure that usurps this authority. The feds will insist that if each state is allowed to create its own policies then its national immigration prerogative is thrown into chaos.
Arizona officials argue their law supports federal immigration efforts and does not impede on Washington’s ability to control immigration policy. These officials including Gov. Jan Brewer (R) believe the federal government has failed in its efforts to deal with problems that are more acute in its state–that sits on the Mexico border–versus other states where the concerns over illegal immigrants are less pressing.
The cost of harboring illegal immigrants in the United States is a staggering $113 billion a year — an average of $1,117 for every “native-headed” household in America — according to a study conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).
BISBEE, Ariz. — Three thousand, five hundred feet above Arizona’s Huachuca Mountains, a man peers down from a single-engine Cessna TU206 and spots a spider web-like network of trails.
“For us to see a trail up here, it’s well worn. That means it’s active,” says the man, a Vietnam veteran in his 60s who created BorderInvasionPics.com, a website that publishes photographs of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.
Frustrated with federal efforts to combat illegal immigration, as well as human and drug trafficking, he is one of a growing number of independent border-watchers bent on exposing what they say is a worsening climate along the 372-mile Arizona-Mexico border.
He declined to be identified due to threats he’s received since launching his website in late 2008. Someone, he says, even placed a map in his mailbox that marked his residence with an “X.”

UPDATE: FOX Ex-Official Accuses Justice Department of Racial Bias in Black Panther Case
~ former Justice official J. Christian Adams. (FNC)
In emotional and personal testimony, an ex-Justice official who quit over the handling of a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party accused his former employer of instructing attorneys in the civil rights division to ignore cases that involve black defendants and white victims.
J. Christian Adams, testifying Tuesday before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, said that “over and over and over again,” the department showed “hostility” toward those cases. He described the Black Panther case as one example of that — he defended the legitimacy of the suit and said his “blood boiled” when he heard a Justice official claim the case wasn’t solid.
“It is false,” Adams said of the claim.
“We abetted wrongdoing and abandoned law-abiding citizens,” he later testified.
The department abandoned the New Black Panther case last year. It stemmed from an incident on Election Day in 2008 in Philadelphia, where members of the party were videotaped in front of a polling place, dressed in military-style uniforms and allegedly hurling racial slurs while one brandished a night stick.

Shabazz first came to widespread public attention in 1994, when Unity Nation, a student group he founded, invited Khalid Abdul Muhammad to speak at Howard University. Introducing the speaker, Shabazz engaged in a call and response with the audience:
“Who is it that caught and killed Nat Turner?”
“Who is it that controls the Federal Reserve?”
“Who is it that has our entertainers… and our athletes in a vise grip?”
The Anti-Defamation League describes Shabazz as “anti-Semitic and racist”

Before: SLOVITER, BARRY and HARDIMAN, Circuit Judges.
OPINION OF THE COURT
SLOVITER, Circuit Judge.
Charles F. Kerchner, Jr., Lowell T. Patterson, Darrell J. LeNormand, and Donald H. Nelsen, Jr. (hereafter “Appellants”) filed suit in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, alleging that President Barack Obama is ineligible to hold his Office as President. They rely on Article II, Section 1, Clause 4 of the United States Constitution which provides that “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President. . . .” U.S. Const., art. II, § 1, cl. 4.[ 1 ] Appellants challenge the District Court’s order dismissing their complaint. We will affirm the order of dismissal and direct Appellants’ counsel to show cause why just damages and costs should not be imposed on him for having filed a frivolous appeal.
Appellants, seeking to compel President Obama to “conclusively prove[ ]” that he is eligible to serve as President, Appellants’ Br. at 6, named as defendants President Obama, the United States of America, the United States Congress, the United States Senate, the United States House of Representatives, former Vice President and President of the Senate Richard Cheney, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (hereafter “Appellees”). Appellants allege that President Obama violated their rights under the Fifth and Ninth Amendments when he assumed office without “conclusively” proving that he is eligible for the presidency and that the legislative branch violated Appellants’ right under the Petition Clause of the First Amendment when Appellants’ request to investigate the President’s birthplace and citizenship was ignored. Appellants also assert claims under the Fifth and Twentieth Amendments against Congress, former Vice President Cheney, and Speaker Pelosi, for failing to “properly vet and verify” Obama’s citizenship. Appellants’ Br. at 10. They moreover bring an equal protection claim on the ground that Congress “fully investigated . . . whether Republican Presidential candidate John McCain is an Article II `natural born Citizen,’” but made no such inquiry as to President Obama. Appellants’ Br. at 10-11.
