Court Rules DOJ Politicized Black Panther Case, Awards Judicial Watch Court Fees

Well, Well, Welll... This is getting interesting...


Judicial Watch has been confident for some time that the evidence shows that political appointees at the Holder Department of Justice (DOJ) were involved in the decision to abandon the DOJ’s own voter intimidation lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party. And we’ve also been concerned that at least one high ranking DOJ official lied about it under oath.

In a major victory for Judicial Watch, a federal court seems to agree with our analysis of this continuing scandal.

The ruling came courtesy of Judge Reggie B. Walton of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in response to Judicial Watch’s effort to obtain attorney’s fees from the DOJ for stonewalling the release of documents pertaining to the Black Panther scandal.


Here is a key quote from the ruling


The documents reveal that political appointees within DOJ were conferring about the status and resolution of the New Black Panther Party case in the days preceding the DOJ’s dismissal of claims in that case, which would appear to contradict Assistant Attorney General Perez’s testimony that political leadership was not involved in that decision. Surely the public has an interest in documents that cast doubt on the accuracy of government officials’ representations regarding the possible politicization of agency decision-making.

In sum, the Court concludes that three of the four fee entitlement factors weigh in favor of awarding fees to Judicial Watch. Therefore, Judicial Watch is both eligible and entitled to fees and costs, and the Court must now consider the reasonableness of Judicial Watch’s requested award.


Will this open the door for further and just investigation?? Remember how we even got here???


Hans von Spakovsky, a former DOJ official now with the Heritage Foundation, has been following this issue closely and writes:

Where is the investigation by the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) of whether Perez violated his ethical and professional obligations as a DOJ attorney? Will the DOJ inspector general open an investigation of the possible violation by Perez of 18 U.S.C. §1621, which outlaws presenting false statements under oath in official federal proceedings? Or will they all respectively yawn and ignore this?


Let me know if you see this story reported on ANY MSM outlet. Probably not.... Sad!!!

www.breitbart.com...

They are not finished with this case yet. A massive thumbs up to them and to this decision


So the Black Panther scandal, which we were told was managed by low level DOJ officials, might just go all the way to the very top.

Expect the news regarding this case to continue to reverberate. The Court’s decision is another piece of evidence showing the Obama DOJ is run by individuals who have a problem telling the truth. And it shows that we can’t trust the Obama DOJ to fairly administer our nation’s voting and election laws.

We intend to continue to push for accountability. Perez, who gave the false testimony, is a leading leftist at the DOJ who has taken the lead in the attacks on Arizona’s immigration enforcement measures; attacks on election integrity measures such as voter ID; and the shakedown of financial institutions over dubious discriminatory lending allegations. (You can go to agency’s Internet site to get the full breadth of Perez’s hard Left agenda.)


Will it stick where nothing seems to stick?? What more do we need to see to fully realize that Holder's/Obama's DOJ has completely turned rotten....???

Please excuse my pessimism, but it may already be too late, at least on ATS.

There are many people here who have known that DOJ was seriously diseased. The rest believe that any negative attack on Holder is an attack on Obama, which their belief sysytem will not allow.

Since this story can't be refuted, I predict it will be largely ignored. That way Obama supporters will not have to ask painful questions of themselves.

This is one of those cases that for the truth seeker is so disheartening, yes, even despite this ruling. No justice has been done in this case. We are at the point, I think, that we don't expect justice anymore. We have a political wing in the DOJ, and the NBP party has cart blanche to act unAmerican and do whatever they want to do against those they deem to be enemies.

We live under as system of one set of rules for them and one for us. Maybe I'm just tired today, but it feels we are headed into a very sad time and nothing we do matters. Thanks for the thread.

All I can say is thank god for Larry Klayman and his unmatched effort of dealing with criminals like this. People think Larry is primarily a watch dog for the right but people often forget he was the one who ran Newt out of Washington.

Dear korathin,

I'm not sure I agree that I have that particular problem. Some people's (and I don't mean just Obama supporters) are motivated by pure self interest, fear, habit, lack of correct information, or social pressure. I care about all opinions until I find they are irrational, even then "the heart has it's reasons," and I try to empathisize with those.

Yes, I believe that Obama supporters are wrong, and that he is bad for the country, but why should they listen to my opinions if I won't listen to theirs?

Besides, if Obama's supporters were to fall into the categories you've mentioned, I don't see how he could have gotten a majority of the votes.

Finally some sanity to be found in the US Justice System. I still want to see prosecution and more investigation but it's a good first step in the right direction.

I hate to be Mr. Obvious, but progressives only pretend to listen, and they do a bad job of it. Leftist's only want people to listen to them, so when dealing with unreasonable people, who bother being reasonable with them?

After everything that has happened, at this point trying to reason with an Obama supporter is like trying to reason with someone sucked into a cult. And it detracts away from the other political Parties: There are several different socialist parties with "interesting" candidates, as well as several more conservative Parties, and we can't forget about the Libertarian Party either.

There is more important things to talk about and with, then Obama supporters. Frankly spoken, given Obama's Administrations blatant sexism against men in nearly every public policy(VP Biden won't even admit that men are half of all Domestic Violence victims, and lesbian DV is non existent in Obama land as well), coupled with Obama's obsession with girl's and women's education at a time when girls and women are doing awesome, but boy's and men are on life support about to keel over... Coupled with the fact that the Stimulus meant to sent everyone back to work was spent in such a way that it went primarily to women's employment..

It creates a very clear pattern of bigotry. And as a member of the demography adversely effected by Mr. Obama's daddy issue's and male self loathing issue's, I am not going to take him or any of his supporters seriously. Of course I will also advise others to do like-wise and they are perfectly free to reject my opinion or listen to it.

P.S

I understand that Mr. Obama conned a lot of people back in 08, even smart/intelligent people will make mistakes(people make mistakes, that is life), I am talking about Mr. Obama's current supporters, people who still support him after all of this.

Dear korathin,

Well, now for the good news. A Gallup survey shows that 9% of Obama's supporters are now switching support to Romney. Something got through to them, maybe more will switch. Too bad there's not a smiley for "Fingers Crossed."


With respect,

Because: The truth holds no party affiliation. It just IS ;we should at least agree as a nation:. That truth is more important than "our guy winning"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!( apologies to Charlie Sheen!)

It has always bothered me that the black panthers seem to have free reign. The whole voter intimidation scandal, and virtually nothing in the msm.
I hear that acorn two the freequil is now on going as well
The more things change the more they remaln the same. Maybe that was the change that obama was refering to. My question is . Is there any reason to hope that they will actually do any thing about this?

FWIW,

I had an interesting impression reading your OP.

I believe we will live to see the day when

high level crimes and abuses in the DOJ will trigger prayers by authentic Christians for

ALMIGHTY GOD TO ADMINISTER

HIS JUSTICE

and deal with such evils.

AND HE WILL, MOST
EMPHATICALLY.

Evil believes it will carry the day . . . and it will in areas and ways and globally for a very limited time.

However,

[color=699FF]LET GOD ARISE AND HIS ENEMIES BE SCATTERED

WILL ALSO OCCUR.


The evil ones at the top will fall with a great thud. They and their kind will be wiped from the planet and all evidence of their existence will be wiped out as well. Their arrogance will NOT be the last word. Their abuses of the serfs and slaves in behalf of the greedy corrupt power mongers WILL END.

ABSOLUTELY NOT. Only that it will get worse and worse. The Destroyer-in-Chief is determined to do as ordered and destroy our way of life and our Republic to ashes to enable the easier overt establishment of the satanic global government.

And we are already at the stage when the rocks will cry out in behalf of the abused serfs and slaves.

However, thankfully, GOD IS IN HIS HEAVEN and HE DOES CARE about the poor and the downtrodden. And with the deliberately engineered levels of debt in our land, everyone is poor. It's just that the whitewash appears otherwise for a time yet.

The current DOJ is rife with absolutely corrupt, lying, traitorous, demonized, evil satanic globalists literally hell-bent on being destructive to our Republic and all people of the least bit of healthy good will and honest honorable righteousness.

The DOJ will bend over backwards and even do back flips to glorify and protect evil, murderous deadliness, filth and traitorous abuse while assaulting honorable, patriotic, God-fearing and God-loving people in the land and around the world.

However, elements of the pathetic mess of a Christian Church are rising up and learning to take their stand in the great Spiritual warfare battles of these END TIMES.

[color=6699FF]And Christ WILL HAVE A CHURCH TRIUMPHANT. Such corruption in high places will NOT have the last word.

It will get still worse for a time. [color=6699FF]More abusive DOJ corruption will come to light. More DOJ abuse of the Constitution and Bill of Rights will come to light.

And God will insure that the evil doers reap what they have sown. It is only a matter of time. And timing I have little clue about.

The satanic globalists have carefully placed high level judges in places of high authority for more than 100 years. The reaping the evils of such evil scheming have hardly begun to be felt wholesale. It will get worse before it gets better.

However, it will be ultimately dealt with . . . certainly at the literal Armageddon and somewhat before.

FWIW, these are my convictions, impressions and understandings. I have no need to argue with naysayers about them.

Hooray for this decision. But do not expect much to come of it. Life goes on as usual in DC. Criminal gangsters in both political parties have a firm hold over their respective brainwashed supporters and are not about to give up their turf. The New Black Panthers are right at home in their role as the poll enforcement arm of the criminal Democrat party.

Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same coin. It is a filthy currency tarnished by greed and corruption that will no longer purchase honest representation for the American voter and taxpayer.

These men and women band together in gangs they call political parties in order to conspire together to scam, defraud, and extort money from the American voter and taxpayer.

Democrats and Republicans conspire to amass great personal fortunes during their time in Washington while running our country into the ground.

Every election cycle we have to choose between the lying, thieving, whore mongering Democrat or the lying, thieving, whore mongering Republican.

After every election the headlines scream "REPUBLICANS WIN!" or they scream "DEMOCRATS WIN!". But they never, never, never scream "AMERICANS WIN!". Why is that? It is because when Democrats and Republicans win, Americans get screwed.

The only way Americans are ever going to have an honest government is to quit electing Democrats and Republicans.

EXCELLENT POINTS, imho.

Though I don't think there will be much of any solution short of literal Armageddon. If there is a partial solution, it will be in smaller geographic regions as people of honesty, integrity and good hearts toward God and man stand up and overcome first spiritually and then in other ways. imho.

Thanks for a great post.
