J Christian Adams, DOJ whistle-blower, and Bartle Bull, renown civil rights attorney, comment on DOJ's refusal to pursue New Black Panthers voter intimidation case

If you haven't seen Megyn Kelly's exclusive interviews with J Christian Adams, the DOJ attorney who resigned in protest at the DOJ's dismissal of the voter intimidation charges against the New Black Panthers. Adams blew the whistle on the DOJ's dereliction in an article at Pajamas Media. You can watch part one of Megyn's interview here:

Part two is here:

That interview is truly shocking, particularly Adams' statement that the DOJ voting division will not pursue voting rights violations when the defendant is black and the victim is white. However, the DOJ and its liberal apologists, rather than addressing Adams' comments, are trying to discredit him by accusing him of being politically motivated.

However, one of the witnesses at the Philadelphia polling station was Bartle Bull, a renown civil rights attorney who was Robert F. Kennedy's New York campaign manager and worked along side Charles Evers, Medgar Evers' older brother, enforcing voting rights laws in Mississippi in the 1960's. On November 4, 2008, Bartle worked as a poll watcher at the same Philadelphia polling station and witnessed the New Black Panthers harassing and yelling racial slurs at voters and poll observers in order to intimidate them. Will the DOJ accuse him of being politically motivated in the same way it tried to discredit Adams? They won't even try. Instead they'll ignore him as best they can because they know that his credibility is unimpeachable.

When Michelle Malkin covered the case back when it was first brought by the Bush DOJ, she posted Bartle Bull's affidavit, which you can read here. In it, he said that never in his entire career as a civil rights attorney has he ever seen or heard of an instance where uniformed and armed men intimidated and blocked voters as they tried to enter a polling station. Not even in Mississippi in the 1960's.

Megyn Kelly spoke to Bartle Bull about this case as well. When you watch the video, you will see that he is nothing short of outraged that the Obama administration is refusing to apply the voting rights laws equally to all citizens.

Is it a surprise that as of right now, no other media outlets besides Fox News is covering this? The New York Times, The Washington Post, NBC, CBS, ABC, and CNN have all remained silent on this matter, which is not only a tacit endorsement of the DOJ's actions but makes them just as culpable in the attempted cover up.

The 14th Amendment of the C... (Below threshold)

The 14th Amendment of the Constitutions says:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

According to Mr. Adams members of the administration and of the DoJ don't believe in prosecuting Voting Rights violations made by minorities, only against minorities.

I think it is clearly time to put the administration and DoJ people under oath to explain how that is consistent with the 14th Amendment.

Corruption thy name is Obama (and company).
This guy was nothing about healing the races, this guy is about getting back at whites. He is setting relations back, not forward. It seems to me that Obama who is of mixed parentage is hostile to the white side.
Again, him and his background is too mysterious and questionable to hold the highest office of this land. But here he is.

As I've said before - voter intimidation is just plain wrong. There's no justification for it, regardless of your ethnic history or racial background.

If the folks doing this had been white, they'd be doing hard time now, and I'd be applauding that. It would have been in accordance with the law, and it would have been, in my humble opinion, a just and deserved punishment. You DON'T screw around like that.

But supposedly we were to get 'social justice' from this administration - which (at least to me) means that the laws should be applied consistently and evenly with no favoritism for status, heritage, or connections.

More and more I'm thinking that 'social justice' is another one of those terms that's essentially undefinable - different people will have different concepts of the whole idea, based on their personal experiences, prejudices and desires.

But one thing 'social justice' hasn't proven itself to be is 'equal justice under the law'. The favoritism it engenders is extremely damaging, and causes far more long-term trouble than it cures. You don't get justice for all by holding one group exempt from the standards by which it's administrated, no matter what the history is of 'justice' for that group.

The law MUST be equal for all.

Question. Wasn't there some local or state issues and candidates for state and local offices on the ballot? Why can't the state bring charges against this group? Just wondering. Enquiring minds want to know.

The Voting Rights Act is a Federal Law and can only be prosecuted in Federal court.

Pennsylvania would have to have some kind of voter intimidation law of its own and a state prosecutor willing to file the charges.

The Obama regime has made voter intimidation LEGAL. You can BET that the 2012 election will see Black Panthers, SEIU and other radical union thugs and a host of members of other left wing groups planting themselves at polling places across the nation, determined to prevent whites from voting. And you can ALSO safely bet that law enforcement will do NOTHING to prevent this. IT will be up to actual Americans to remove these thugs and ensure the safety and accessibility of polling places throughout the United States. The question is, will armed American patriots accept the challenge??!!

You may be right. People will generally give the government a chance to enforce the law and to protect them. There is a point however where if the government refuses to do so that people will take the matter into their own hands.

If the government doesn't get their shit in order, people may take countering the violence on southern borders into their own hands which will complicate matters that much more.

This also proves Obama and his administration is racist against whites. I am not surprised. ww

They can start with "Disturbing the Peace", and then escalate it from there if they have to when the NBP's resist arrest.
