A disgrace to the tradition of the Civil Rights Division
Tom Smith

This is a must read.  About the Black Panther case.  This is really bad.  I know it's a cliche by now, but if anything remotely like this had happened in the Bush administration, every legal worthy you can think of would be on about it, and rightly, until no one could stand it anymore.  Via the corner.

Tom, isn't it possible to sue the Federal Government for racial discrimination based upon the allegations by the author of the cited article? Why is it permissible for the Federal Government to only enforce laws based upon race? Isn't that a violation of equal protection?

PS: I see that your co-blogger, Gail Heriot, is currently a Commissioner of the United States Commission on Civil Rights and has been since 2007. What is her position on the "disgrace to the tradition of the Civil Rights Division"?

RE: Most People STILL....

....cannot quite wrap their mind around it, but the objective of this administration, vis-a-vis America, is really quite different from what they would like to think.

And this business is just another indicator. Right up there with the ROEs in Afghanistan, the spending [and future taxing], medical care 'reform', etc., etc., etc.

A good intell officer would see it as plain as day. The rest of US can't seem to think 'out of the box' far enough to recognize it.

Exactly! But I think the problem is the first major bloggers on the right that try to sell the fact that this administration is trying to destroy this country, in order to remake it in their vision, will be trying to sell crazy. The Left always brilliant in strategy and tactics understands that the sheer absurdity of a US President actively attempting to destroy this country makes them almost invulnerable to attack...after all who wants to try and sell crazy.

Yes his popularity is going down but given his stated motives, past associations, present actions, and present associations he should be impeached immediately. Anything other than this means he wins. Yes I am not a big fan of his.

And mind you that he may win even if we impeach him tomorrow given the likely violent reaction of his legions of followers to his impeachment. Darn if we do darned if we don't. Thanks to a bunch of clowns who voted for this Manchurian candidate.

Then again, if the vaunted American public education system has succeeded in dumbing down the electorate, well....it's going to be 'interesting'.

P.S. Being a good intell officer and holding to my oath I don't care what others may think, I'll continue to tell the truth as best as I see it and can utter it.

P.P.S. Additional 'indicators':

• Sotomeyer
• Kagan
• The Southern Border

This Civil Rights Division stuff and the imbalance of application of the Law of the Land is just another KEY indicator.

P.S. I think our side is a bit better at administering 'violence' than those 'legions' you're concerned about.

Thank you for the suggestion on reading material for my vacation!

No doubt our side is better armed but I never underestimate the enemy...most of the clowns are exactly that, but some are not only clownish but evil murderous and sociopathic. One need only listen the the Larry Grathwohl interview to find that out. And lucky for us some of those clowns are actually in positions of authority. Now we are counting on folks below them not following orders...weeeee.

To Chuck,

I'm not sure how much faith I have in intel officers these days. I guess I lost that faith when (1) we were entirely wrong about WMD's, and (2) we cant find one person (Osama).

So to say that a good intel officer would see something clear as day is not the best comparison.

Posted by: Johnny | Jun 29, 2010 11:45:50 AM

Entirely wrong about WMD's? How so? He had them, he used them, he was working on them again, and he took pains to cover his trail. Then we gave him months of advance warning before we went looking for them. Let's see how many drug busts would work if we called up the dealers and told them we know you have the drugs and we will be there in 3 months to look for them.

Syria has them. Intelligence agencies in the United States have been proven to be filled with Bureaucrats with political agendas but I bet if you ask Al Qaeda in Afghanistan how they felt about the CIA Operatives killing them by the hundreds from the tops of donkey's I bet they would show more respect than you have.

RE: [OT] Intell & WMDs

Funny. You must have been watching CNN or MSNBC when those Germans reported on Hussein's WMD program. Or perhaps you missed all that information on how that yellow cake DID make it to Iraq and people died from using the 55 gallon barrels used to ship it for holding drinking water.

Oh well.....

TO: Pierre LeGrand
RE: WMDs Reprised

Don't forget. The way the media under the Obama administration has been carrying on, a simple hand-grenade is a Weapon of Mass Destruction. So, Hussein OBVIOUSLY had WMDs, as his soldiers had hand-grenades.

Obama is a weapon of mass destruction...

I would say that it's up in the area of high crimes and misdemeanors.

RE: Must See TV

Check out this item by Bill Whittle at PJTV....

http://www.pjtv.com/?cmd=mpg&mpid=56&load=3815

It deals with the sort of attacks on justice that this thread is about, in a broad overview manner.

Enjoy,
