(Answer) They would be locked up,Charged,so fast

On the day President Obama was elected, armed men wearing the black berets and jackboots of the New Black Panther Party were stationed at the entrance to a polling place in Philadelphia. They brandished a weapon and intimidated voters and poll watchers. After the election, the Justice Department brought a voter-intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party and those armed thugs. I and other Justice attorneys diligently pursued the case and obtained an entry of default after the defendants ignored the charges. Before a final judgment could be entered in May 2009, our superiors ordered us to dismiss the case.
The New Black Panther case was the simplest and most obvious violation of federal law I saw in my Justice Department career. Because of the corrupt nature of the dismissal, statements falsely characterizing the case and, most of all, indefensible orders for the career attorneys not to comply with lawful subpoenas investigating the dismissal, this month I resigned my position as a Department of Justice (DOJ) attorney.
Why would Attorney General Eric Holder drop these charges against such a radical group? The Answer is Barack Hussein Obama.
Most disturbing, the dismissal is part of a creeping lawlessness infusing our government institutions. Citizens would be shocked to learn about the open and pervasive hostility within the Justice Department to bringing civil rights cases against nonwhite defendants on behalf of white victims. Equal enforcement of justice is not a
piority of the present DOJ.

BTW,This is a statement by the former Lawyer
who was handling the Case for the DOJ....Before
you all go all stupid on me???? He quit because
of reverse Racism???

Talk to any old person. All they say is,“Gimme, gimme, gimme.” Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security. Me, me, me.
Shouldn’t money be saved for the strong? For the productive? For the superior individuals who are amassing happiness through their own sheer will, drive and, perhaps, large inheritances?
Some think Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan would “end Medicare as we know it.” Well, maybe it does and maybe it doesn’t. But you should have seen the plan we argued him out of. We don’t want to go into details, but let’s just say it involved ice floes.

UPDATED: Manufactured scandal: Right wing's phony allegations against the Justice Department

J. Christian Adams' accusations that President Obama's Justice Department engaged in racially charged "corruption" in the New Black Panther Party case do not stand up to the evidence. Adams is a right-wing activist tied to the Bush-era politicization of the Justice Department who has admitted he lacks first-hand knowledge of the events he is discussing, and his claims fall apart given the fact that the Obama DOJ obtained judgment against one defendant, while the Bush DOJ declined to pursue similar allegations in 2006.

The charges against the New Black Panthers were downgraded by the Bush Department of Justice:
The decision not to file a criminal case occurred before Obama was even in office.
This means that the case was downgraded to a civil case 11 days before Obama was inaugurated, 26 days before Eric Holder became attorney general, and about nine months before Thomas Perez was confirmed as head of the Civil Rights Division.
Too many numbers, Yepperz. Carol is a typical Fauxbot who can't add, subtract, multiply or divide, but espouses global divisiveness. She can be given nine total members of the New Black Panther Party. subtract the two that were acting like jackasses on a street corner, and get 700 billion WMD behind every Halliburton fortune.

Wrong again!! Read about the lies????
By PEREZ??????????

In a little noted decision on July 23, a federal district court judge concluded that internal DOJ documents about the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case “contradict Assistant Attorney General [Thomas] Perez’s testimony that political leadership was not involved in” the decision to dismiss the case.

In other words, the sworn testimony of Perez, the Obama political appointee who heads the Civil Rights Division, before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights was apparently false.…

But what is most disturbing about this court order is that it strongly suggests that Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez essentially lied in sworn testimony. At a hearing before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights on May 14, 2010, Perez was asked by Commissioner Peter Kirsanow whether “any political leadership [was] involved in the decision not to pursue this particular case.” Perez’s answer, on page 79 of the transcript of that hearing, is an uncategorical “No.” When the statements of Perez are compared to the documents that Judicial Watch forced DOJ to release in the FOIA lawsuit, it is clear Judge Walton was polite when he said they are contradictory and “cast doubt on the accuracy” of Perez’s account.

A less diplomatic judge might have said that Perez testified falsely in his hearing testimony before the Commission on Civil Rights. In other words, he may have committed perjury if he knew his statements were false when uttered.

So Perez lied for Obama re the Case??????????

One is reminded of how far to the Right America has moved in three and one-half short years, due to President Barack Obama.



President Obama was groomed through his Chicago years, and was selected through agreement by both parties to be the nominee of the Democratic Party in 2008 because he and he alone could achieve the neutralizing required, if not the eradication of the critical mass of dissent that was generated during the Bush years (he succeeded). He was the "believing is seeing" candidate then, and remains as much today amongst Obamania "believers", who are too numerous to discount, but too mesmerized to be awakened.



As in marketing, a successful political strategy is prolonged until fatigue is reached. Obamania is far from deflating because most Obama people haven't realized their President gravely betrayed them, equaling if not exceeding the immorality and crimes of their erstwhile nemesis George W. Bush. They are deluded, blind, in denial, or simply hypocritical. If my contacts with "Progressives" are any indication, Mr. Obama will secure their vote again. There is an element of adolescent rapture in their excitement.



President Obama moved the pseudo Left-field goal post into Right-field and no one noticed. By posturing as extremists, the Tea Party gave Obama cover to move the post into the Right; then the "extremism" of Libertarians and Paulites gave the GOP cover to move the Republican Party further Right, and in doing so Paul Ryan became palatable as V.P. nominee (also seeking to satisfy Libertarian, Paulite and Evangelical bases); and the extremism of Representative Paul Ryan will permit the next President and Congress to move Right field entirely out of the stadium.



But whether Obama wins or Romney/Ryan win, behind the curtains awaiting activation has sat the "bipartisan" Ryan plan—the anti-government "final solution" weapon. In choosing Ryan, this matter now should be brought to the forefront. It will be the gun held against your head by both candidates if you are a target (poor, disabled, elderly) unless a crisis, distraction or sudden death delays its timing. As planned, Athens is coming to America via the Ryan blueprint which, like in previous examples, will be considered overtly "extreme", thereby giving cover for the next President and Congress to pass most of its recommendations.



But things could be worse. On the morning of August 11, in introducing his Vice-Presidential running mate to the media, Mr. Romney misspoke. He addressed Representative Paul Ryan as "The Next President of the United States."



Does he know something I don't?
