Most Americans consider the right to vote and the protection of laws by the Justice Department to be the hallmarks of a democratic nation. Most will also readily acknowledge the sordid history of discrimination against Black Americans that led to the creation of laws protecting the civil and voting rights of an aggrieved minority. But, how many are aware of the endemic misapplications of those laws which are racially biased against white Americans? Ruth King - Family Security Matters

On Election Day in 2008, armed members of the New Black Panther Party, King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson adopted a menacing and intimidating stance as they stood at the entrance to a polling center in Philadelphia shouting that America would be ruled by a black man. The event was captured on camera and posted on the internet. After the election, J.Christian Adams, then attorney for the Voting Rights Section of the Department of Justice and other DOJ lawyers brought a voter intimidation case against them.
The New Black Panther Party ignored the suit and in May of 2009 the lawyers were ordered to dismiss the case in spite of clear evidence that an outrageous violation of federal law had occurred. After continual stonewalling by the Justice Department, on May 14th
, 2010 J.Christian Adams sent a letter of resignation to become effective on June 4th
Adams stated in an editorial in the Washington Times of July 25, 2010 (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/jun/25/inside-the-black-panther-case-anger-ignorance-and-/
): “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 DOJ attorney”
The Justice Department went into full defense mode insisting that the case was properly handled by the civil rights division, which, in the words of then attorney general for civil rights, Tom Perez is: "firmly committed to the evenhanded application of the law, without regard to the race of the victims or perpetrators."
Many commentators determined to protect President Obama called the charges fantasies designed to belittle the President and diminish racial equality by using a minor example of partisan application of Federal law.
All these claims are totally demolished in J. Christian Adams’ book “Injustice-Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department.”
Most Americans consider the right to vote and the protection of laws by the Justice Department to be the hallmarks of a democratic nation. Most will also readily acknowledge the sordid history of discrimination against Black Americans that led to the creation of laws protecting the civil and voting rights of an aggrieved minority. But, how many are aware of the endemic misapplications of those laws which are racially biased against white Americans?
In chapter after chapter, Adams presents startling, infuriating and meticulously documented examples of lawlessness and racially based and unequal enforcement of the law slanted against whites. Furthermore, although the Obama Department of Justice implements this blatant reverse discrimination in staffing of all its agencies much of it occurred during the two terms of President George Bush.
In 2003, Ike Brown, a law school dropout from Madison county Mississippi relocated to Noxubee County to secure total Black domination of the county’s local and state law enforcement officials and legislators. Brown instituted a lawless agenda against white voters and candidates with the use of so called “voter assistance” which was, in fact, voter coercion and illegal ballots as well as henchmen who threatened voters and candidates, and myriad examples of bias and disregard for the laws. Most appalling were the number of Voting Section lawyers, some of whom are in the current Justice Department who enabled Brown’s chicanery and still do.
The book includes many photographs, some taken by the author. One remarkable example is that of an uninhabited and decrepit shanty in Noxubee County which was registered as an address in several elections for a woman who had long left the county but continued to vote there.
Two telling photos show candidate Barack Obama flanked by members of the New Black Panther Party who gave him a black-power salute, and giving an address at the Selma-to-Montgomery commemoration in March 2007.
Adams reminds us that Obama did not hesitate to seek the support of this group which is virulently racist, anti-Semitic, and encourages violence against whites and police officers, but after journalist Juan Williams rather fevered report from the scene, the media ignored the issue and it was airbrushed from his campaign.
If the Justice Department is lax in protecting voters and white Americans, they are quite active in protecting the rights of young males to wear stiletto heels and pink wigs to high school and all “gender non-conforming” behavior, the rights of illegal aliens, and the rights of teachers to a paid vacation in Mecca.
It’s a mad, mad world, but J.Christian Adams ends this essential expose with a cogent list of steps designed to end the injustice and the racial agenda of the Obama Justice department.
It is my pleasure to interview J.Christian Adams.
Please tell us about the New Black Panthers as opposed to the old Black Panthers.
JCA:The New Black Panthers are an entirely different, and much more radical group. They seem to exclude whites, unlike the old black panthers. They are a rabid anti-Semitic organization. Their members repeatedly call for the murder of whites. They have been associated with shake downs of Asian merchants in New York and Washington D.C. The old Black Panthers are tame kitty cats compared to this bunch.
on October 3, Andrew Breitbart published photographs of Barack Obama marching with the members of the New Black Panther Party. He states that your book originally had more of these photographs but they were removed. Can you explain this?
JCA:Andrew published the photos that the photographer would not allow Regenery to publish. The photographer was in Selma at the event and took photos of Obama speaking from the same stage as Malik Zulu Shabazz and his panthers. Injustice does have a photo of Obama and the panthers, but Andrew published the others
You state in the book that Presidents Clinton and Bush deployed experienced lawyers to the polls as election observers. And yet many of the cases you site occurred during the Bush administration. Can you explain?
JCA:Election observers are not at every poll in the country. They are only at a few hundred. There are tens of thousands of precincts around the country on election day. But as I detail in Injustice, even locations where they were deployed, lawlessness still occurred. The culture of voting fraud lawlessness is so automatic, many don’t know how to shut it off even when federal observers are present.
What has happened to Ike Brown? How has the Eric Holder Justice Department dealt with him?
JCA: The Holder Justice Department should have objected to his county redistricting plan in 2011 as violating Section 5 of the voting rights act because it has the effect of discrimination as well as the intent. But the DOJ refuses to protect any white minority under the effects test of Section 5. Perhaps it will take the Supreme Court striking down Section 5 because it is unequally enforced before the DOJ will start to protect everybody. Despite being found liable for discrimination against white voters, the Mississippi Democratic Party kept Ike Brown in the statewide executive committee.
Abigail Thernstrom is a respected conservative. How do you account for her opposition to the case and her bizarre claim that it was just an effort to topple Obama?
JCA: I address her position in Injustice. At first, she was critical of the dismissal of the case and wrote letters to the Justice Department saying so, then she reversed course. It was a gamble that I would be the only person to come out and speak the truth about what was happening inside DOJ. But then Chris Coates, the former Voting Section chief, corroborated me, then multiple people inside DOJ corroborated me to the Washington Post, and then the OPR (Office of Professional Responsibility) report by DOJ revealed that many people don’t think the law should be enforced equally inside DOJ.
In the end it was unfortunate. But Abigail has always been against enforcement of several portions of the Voting Rights Act, including Section 2 sometimes and Section 5.
Please tell us about Tarell Campbell.
JCA:In the fall of 2008, Tarrell Campbell was a student at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. With his three separate master’s degrees, he had been on a college campus, somewhere, for more than a decade. He was so interested in the outcome of the 2008 presidential election that he cast a ballot in Illinois, then drove across a Mississippi River bridge to his hometown of St. Louis and voted again.
Mr. Campbell entered a guilty plea to federal voter fraud charges for illegally casting two votes in a federal election. Make no mistake, Mr. Campbell wasn’t the only person who voted illegally in the last few elections.
What can you tell us about Marilyn Buck and Harvard Professor and Obama mentor Charles Ogletree?
JCA:Buck helped bomb the U.S. Capitol and was involved in the deaths of multiple people. She was a left wing domestic terrorist. She had been sentenced to life in prison and tried to get out during the Bush administration, but the DOJ wouldn’t release her. When Eric Holder became Attorney General, he sprang her loose. People like to note she was dying of cancer, but there is no rule against dying in prison. The people who were murdered didn’t get the luxury of dying at home.
Professor Charles Ogletree is one of President Obama’s old law professors. One of the letters seeking Bucks release came from a Harvard Law School staffer and had Ogletree’s name on the letterhead.
Andrew Breitbart asks who is a Malik Shabazz who visited the White House residence on July 25th
, 2009 after the DOJ dismissed the voter intimidation case? Do you have any idea?
JCA: None. Not a terribly common name, is it?
9.RK: Finally, what would you recommend as a first step to righting this injustice if a new administration is elected in 2012?
JCA: I deal with that in the last chapter of Injustice. The next administration has to have the courage to advance a civil rights vision of their own, and not just a diluted version of the racialists. The next administration also needs to realize almost the entire career ranks will work against their agenda, even sometimes being untruthful about the facts or law – something I encountered all the time. They also need to prioritize military voting, and ensure that ballots go out on time. 2010 was a disaster for military voters. The next administration must bring in former servicemember lawyers to enforce military voting rights.
Thank you for your time and for your excellent and informative book.
