Breaking: Inspector General Report
on Racialist Dysfunction inside
DOJ

PJ Media, by J. Christian Adams

Original Article

Posted By:John c, 3/13/2013 5:23:25 AM

Today the Department of Justice inspector general released a report on potential Labor secretary nominee Tom Perez’s DOJ Civil Rights Division. The timing of the release to coincide with his nomination was certainly accidental, because the report paints a damning portrait of the DOJ unit he managed. (The full report is here.) The 250-page report offers an inside glimpse of systemic racialist dysfunction inside one of the most powerful federal government agencies. The report was prepared in response to Representative Frank Wolf’s (R-VA) outrage over the New Black Panther voter intimidation dismissal.

Comments:
In case you missed Mr. Adam´s interview on Mark Levin´s show last night.
Obama is expected to appoint this guy (Perez) to Labor Dept.

Lawlessness by Perez in the DOJ Civil Rights Division is WHY the incompetent fool in the WH nominated him for the Labor Dept.

Not surprising at all. The DOJ needs more than sunshine, but let´s start there.

A couple more revelations of outright racism such as this and Obama will barely get 90+ votes in the senate to confirm this nominee.

Please, please, #3, language is important. It´s not outright racism, it´s "systemic racialist dysfunction." I´d be uncomfortable if our new Labor secretary were a racist, but I can certainly accept one who is just a dysfunctional racialist.

Holder is still AG because he has the approval of the president in the job he is doing. The powers that be simply do not believe in the ideals of equal protection and blind justice and all the rest of it - they believe that the idealistic talk is only Whitey´s tool for keeping the black man down, and now that they´ve got their hands on the levers of power it´s time for some payback.

I don´t see how this was worth the wait. Anyone fired? Anyone sued or prosecuted? Ay changes made? How about, anyone beyond our circle of knowledge even aware of it?
Do we feel any more certain now than we did 4 years ago that the DOJ was a tool for the Democrats and racist towards white victims? It was pretty obvious then, no more or less so now.

A racist is a racist no matter what their color. However, this administration believes that blacks can never be racists. The DOJ is an example of how justice is done when the President and the Attorney General are all about payback. How long will they hold a grudge against people who have had nothing to do with slavery. They want eternal penance for an act that most Americans never committed.

There could not possibly be even one person alive in America today who ever owned an American slave. Although there is still a good deal of slavery in other parts of the world,
their dirty laundry is of no interest to the professional anti-American crowd.

I am convinced that the bamster is appointing incompetents to manage our beloved country so that he can dismantle our whole system...

Did anyone see hagel -- the new sec of defense -- on the television? He was a "ah -- duh -- but -- ah" secretary making America looks stupid...

Just what the bamster´s cronies wanted representing US....

AND O´Reilly -- you´re wrong. The prez DOES want to destroy America. Why else would someone choose these idiots? There is a purpose here. I know you don´t want to believe it can happen to our beloved country -- but -- it´s being destroyed from the inside....

This is such a vindication ~ it´s about time someone exposed this vipers´ nest for what it is. The tragedy is that we have no one on Capitol Hill who will stand against this menace of a man and all his cohorts (because he can´t do this all by himself, you knw). As a former employee of DOJ, I witnessed first-hand the polarization & radicalization of the civil division at the top, as it seeped down into the field offices and infected them. The top echelon was the worse to be seen in my two-decade experience. Thankfully, I moved on, along with many others who probably figured out they would not be able to overcome the weight of Holder´s abominable choices. Let´s hope Congress will take notice, stops sucking its thumb, and cleans up this disaster and its damage.

Maybe it´s just coincidence but every organization that I have ever worked in, if the leader was of a minority class, there were racial problems because he treated his own kind with favoritism and flaunted it in the faces of the majority. Then again, maybe not. Maybe it´s just their nature and I´m just not multi-culti enough to understand that they are entitled.

A person is in custody tonight after police report suspicious bags were found at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street. An eye-witness told the Herald tonight a man dressed all in black and wearing a black veil walked down the middle of Boylston Street, with a backpack on his back, chanting "Boston strong, Boston strong." "He was weird looking," said Matthew VanWinkle. "He was wearing a black veil, a black hat, and no shoes." The bomb squad is now on the scene and police have pushed everyone back.

Kyiv- A recording proving that Russia is backing separatists in eastern Ukraine has surfaced online. The SBU (Security Service of Ukraine) taped the operatives, whose code names are "Nose," "Adler," "Shooter" and "Agath," discussing strategy, weapon stockpiles, and requests for reinforcements. The SBU has identified the number calling the separatists in Ukraine as having a Russian +7 area code. The person with the Russian number asks Shooter to contact him. Later in the conversation, Shooter reports “fighting off the first (Ukrainian) attack” and shooting “some significant (highly-ranked Ukrainian) people."

Frank Armstrong never got the chance to know 8-year-old Martin Richard in this life. Nevertheless, the BPD captain in charge of Area E-18 in Hyde Park keeps a picture of the marathon bombings’ youngest casualty on the wall in his office. The Dorchester boy who loved the Bruins, and the 53-year-old cop, who grew up five houses away from where the Richard family lives, share a bond that is as heartbreaking as it is heartwarming. For nearly 12 hours on that fateful Patriots Day a year ago, Frank Armstrong led a squad of Boston police officers who stood watch over

BOSTON - After taking heat from some of its own over a decision to grant an honorary degree to an advocate for Muslim women who has made comments critical of Islam, Brandeis University withdrew the honor Tuesday night. The university said in a statement that Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali would no longer receive the honorary degree, which it had planned to award her at the May 18 commencement. Ali, a member of the Dutch Parliament from 2003 to 2006, has been quoted as making comments critical of Islam. That includes a 2007 interview with Reason Magazine in which she

About 10 investigators with Boston Fire´s Arson unit this morning entered the four-story brownstone on Beacon Street where six days ago a roaring blaze claimed the lives of two firefighters. The arson investigators entered the building around 10 a.m. On Wednesday, Lt. Edward Walsh and Michael Kennedy died after being trapped in the basement of the 298 Beacon St. building during the roaring 9-alarm blaze. Deputy Chief Joseph Finn, who commanded the firefighters last week and made the decision to pull firefighters from the wind-driven fire, was also on scene.

Neal Mullane of Ladder 18 in South Boston, his own scalp gashed and burned, found himself drawn to the Back Bay firehouse that has become a kind of chapel for his grieving brethren. Mullane, 42, was one of the officers tapped at a moment’s notice to command as the Rapid Intervention Team at the nine-alarm fire. He described the desperate detail to the Herald’s Laurel J. Sweet.

JERUSALEM — The Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad said Thursday it had agreed to halt a wave of rocket fire on Israel, signaling an end to the heaviest fighting between the sides since 2012, though soon after the announcement two rockets fired from Gaza exploded inside Israel. The Islamic Jihad denied it launched the attack and it wasn´t immediately unclear who fired the rockets. Cease-fire declarations have not always been honored by militants and the barrage raised doubts about the cease-fire offer made by Islamic Jihad. The Israeli military said a total of four rockets were fired Thursday from Gaza.

The drum-beating of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference — the GOP’s pre-presidential coming-out party — gave us a glimpse of the Republican future. And for the GOP, the future is bleak. Sen. Rand Paul officially won CPAC’s presidential straw poll. His message of libertarianism plays well with the small government crowd.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it.

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
