Remember this from back in November 2008?
“Just after 12:00 noon, Fox News reported that two black panthers were at one location in Philadelphia “guarding” the doorway to a polling station. One carried a nightstick and confronted a citizen who had gone in to the polling place. That citizen called police (he was interviewed by the Philly correspondent for Fox). The citizen reported that police removed the black panther with the night stick, but the other, who lives in the area, remains near the door.
“The New Black Panther Party said yesterday it would send its members out to the polls to ensure its interests on Election Day…
Yesterday, Michelle Malkin reported on the results of the black panther that was arrested. Stand by for a major blood boil:
The Bush DOJ filed suit against Malik Shabazz and two of the local NBPP [New Black Panther Party] radicals who were on site — one with a billy club. None of them filed an answer to the lawsuit, putting them all into default. I am told this is the easiest way to win a lawsuit. But instead of taking the default judgment that DOJ is entitled to against all of the defendants, the department last week dismissed the lawsuit against two out of the three defendants. As Election Journal (which broke the story with exclusive video of the intimidation) notes, one of the individual defendants who was dismissed, Jerry Jackson, “is an elected member of the Philadelphia Democratic Committee and was a credentialed poll watcher.”
According to a legal source familiar with DOJ procedures, dismissing a lawsuit won by default is unheard of.
I contacted one of the DOJ lawyers, Spencer Fisher, who signed his name to the voluntary dismissal order. He referred me to Public Affairs. Spokesman Alejandro Miyar told me that the DOJ dropped the cases against Jackson nutball Malik Shabazz “after careful review.” I asked what new evidence caused the Obama DOJ to make such an unprecedented move. He said he “wasn’t a lawyer” and would try and find out. Good luck with that.
Meantime, the DOJ is apparently bracing for closer scrutiny of the case. Miyar said he was preparing to release a statement to “national media outlets.” Watch how they spin.
Remember, this is Obama's Department of Justice – they do his bidding. They've just released members of a known violent organization — one of whom was also a Democrat poll watcher — who were caught red-handed violating federal law by intimidating voters despite the court case being a done deal. What's the message here?
Barack Obama is green-lighting voter intimidation, as long as it benefits him and his party.
That's it, pure and simple. There can be no other reasonable conclusion. This is no surprise, given his connections with ACORN, but such an outright and open example of his willingness to flaunt the law for his own benefit is beyond the pale. This action virtually guarantees further violence and intimidation on every election day for the foreseeable future, especially in precincts with large concentrations of NBPP, ACORN, La Raza, and all kinds of other radical Leftist groups.
There's my two cents.
