Congressman Brad Sherman CA.-27, tells town hall; "Unaware of Black Panther Story."


These Congressmen are jumping off the cliff one after another. This congressman tried to first pass off a lie to one his constituents regarding the DoJ's policies that are now known to the public because of a DoJ defector. While this congressman tried to pass this lie off, another constituent yelled out the famous Joe Wilson line "You Lie".

After hearing that famous Joe Wilson phrase, the Congressman then gets into another lie that he is not aware of any case involving the Black Panthers and the DoJ.

Another fine distinguished bureaucrat from the Party of Change.

Can't blame him. Just another uninformed Democrat that doesn't watch FOX News. She only gets one side that is not Fair and Balanced.

Commercial over: back to regular programming...

Do not expect much from Brad Sherman. He's part of a trio of liberal panderers from the San Fernando Valley. Brad Sherman, Howard Berman, and our friend Henry Waxman, heck they've been ignoring the truth for quite a long time.

May they all ride of to the west (into the Pacific).

As far as the Panthers go, this one should be a big deal. If it was white guys with batons intimidating voters it would have 3 inch headlines in the Los Angeles Times, minute by minute coverage on MSNBC, CNN and NBC and a blistering editorials by Katie Couric and Arianna Huffington.

The hypocracy is too much to behold.

Maybe the KKK should try that durring the next ellection, and if they get arrested, then they should play the discrimination card.

Whats good for the goose......


I am only kidding, the DOJ and Mr. Holder should reverse their collective rectal/cranial inversion, and do their jobs.

Right...

Lets imprison the two idiots representing the Black Panthers for standing outside a polling booth with one of them carrying a billy club.

I am OK with that.

Next let's throw these idiots in jail..C'Mon...lots of crackpots of every political leaning to round-up..

Mock Obama Casket Near Active Polling Station in Craven County, NC


a Caucasian male by the name of William Harper placed a real casket very close to an active polling station in Craven County, NC. The casket supposedly featured at least two photos of the presidential hopeful Barack Obama. The pictures apparently had what some described as a red noose-like shape around the Senator's head and stated "O' No!"


www.associatedcontent.com...



After a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina, supporters of Barack Obama went to a nearby early voting center, where they were heckled and harassed by a group of protesters as they went in to vote. Nearly all of the early voters were black, and nearly all of the protesters were white.

Philadelphia fliers. Deceptive fliers about the consequences of voting were distributed in a predominantly African American neighborhood in Philadelphia.

California. Dozens of voters reported that a firm hired by the California Republican Party tricked them into registering with the GOP when signing a petition they believed to toughen penalties against child molesters.

Florida. The St. Petersburg Times reported that the Republican National Committee sent non-forwardable mailings to older Democratic voters, falsely stating that recipients are registered as Republicans and suggested that undeliverable mailings could be used to compile challenge lists. The RNC claimed that the controversial mailing was just a fundraising piece.

Voter intimidation case was dropped by the DoJ after it was won by the prosecution.

What part of the above sentence was not coherently worded for you to not understand?

And the video above is of a senator who is unaware of such a case ever existing and later being dropped.

Your ignorance to the issue and diversion tactic noted pretty well.

Ahh, Fox News. Ain't they just something? All it takes is a little word change here and a word move there and you got yourself a drummed up conspiracy involving Obama, yet again.

These two vids should clear up Hannity's little word salad game he plays.

Exhibit A - Hannity's charge (sorry no youtube vid available)
mediamatters.org...



HANNITY: The Obama administration is turning its back on transparency yet again. Now remember this video from Election Day 2008? It shows members of the New Black Panther Party standing outside a Philadelphia polling place and one of them was even carrying a nightstick. Now, thanks in part to Fox's coverage of the incident, the men in this video were formally accused of voter intimidation. Well, but this summer, the Justice Department dropped the charges against them with little explanation.
Well, now that same Justice Department has denied a request from The Washington Times to open the records related to the case. Now, Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee would like Attorney General Eric Holder to testify in the matter, but Democrats are blocking that request. Now it certainly sounds like the Obama Justice Department has something to hide now, doesn't it?

*Notice* he says "this summer' and "same Justice Dept". These are the magic words he has used, but.....



OOOOOPSY WHOOOPSY! Epic fail Hannity. Thanks for playing though and we have a wonderful parting gift from the makers of Mr. Megaphone, where your lies can be heard a mile away.


P.S. what does the Obama administration have to hide? Perhaps it is the injunction they won against the man with the nightstick?

All of it. Please explain what whacko nonsense you think you know and provide links. Maybe take a look at the above vid first to save yourself some embarrasment.

If Fox News had not reported it, Obama and Holder would have pulled this off and no one would be the wiser. Everyone in this country, whether you're white, black, brown, yellow, or purple needs to be aware of this incident.

Anyone that obstructs a voter wanting to vote at his prescribed polling place should be jailed, PERIOD. An obstructor carrying a weapon of any kind should have been immediately jailed and charged with a felony.

I watch Fox News and read the Los Angeles Times (aka "The Trilateral Rag") and most of the time the truth lies somewhere in the middle. And sometimes not!! You need input from many sources - left, right, middle, and fringe. To constantly blast Fox because they're Fox only detracts from your posts.

Wasn't this case dropped while Bush was still president anyway? Would that not make it his DOJ's fault? Did I miss something or is this just another example of FOX reporting old news of something that happened under the last president and pretending it should stick to Obama somehow?

Are you serious? Wait you are serious as you posted this question. This case was just dropped by the DoJ 2 weeks ago. Where have you been?

If you would have watched the vid with Keith Olbermann you would know that what you said is a LIE.

Here is Thomas Perez's testimony, head of the Civil Rights Division, before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights in May:www.usccr.gov...

where he states: "After reviewing the matter, the Civil Rights Division determined that the facts DID NOT CONSTITUTE a prosecutable violation of criminal statutes. The Department did, however, file a civil action on January 7th, 2009, seeking injunction and declaratory relief under 11(b) against four defendants."

It was not dropped two weeks ago, it was downgraded from a criminal case to a civil case 11 days BEFORE Obama took office and 26 days BEFORE Eric Holder was appointed.

And from Adam Serwer from American Prospects states: "there's no evidence, beyond J. Christian Adams' statements, that Perrelli had the case dismissed. At any rate, several conservative figures have suggested that the Obama administration refused to pursue a criminal case, and that's not what happened."

This is NOT news, it is a fabricated charge that is so way provably false.

You are correct. It "wasn't" completed.

What was said in an interview:


But Adams, the former administration lawyer, accused the Justice Department of not continuing the case for political and racial reasons.

Adams called the case "a slam dunk," telling Fox News that "nobody thought there was any doubt that this was the clearest case of voter intimidation that I've seen since I've been practicing law."





But Bartle Bull, who was a poll watcher in Philadelphia in 2008, doesn't buy the Justice Department denials.

"I find it deeply offensive," Bull said. "I know people who died over these issues, like Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. If we can't defend their legacy, it's shameful to us and this administration."

Bull is a prominent New York Democrat and longtime political adviser. He was Robert F. Kennedy's New York campaign manager, went to the south in the 1960s to protect the voting rights of black voters and just came back from Afghanistan where he traveled with the troops.

He says the administration's actions amount to protecting the New Black Panthers.

Bull has already testified before the Civil Rights Commission, and the commissioners also want to hear from Christopher Coates, the former chief of the Justice Department's voting section who has since been transferred to the U.S. attorney's office in South Carolina. But the commission claims the Justice Department is blocking Coates from testifying about why the case was dropped.

Bull said that in 2008, one of the Black Panthers turned to him and said "now you will know what it means to be ruled by the black man, cracker."

The result of the Justice Department action, or lack of it, he said, is that "these guys now think it's safe for them to bully voters and citizens. And that's why the Department of Justice must stand up."
