“You know we don’t carry batons…. PSYCHE! Heh heh heh… I’m just playin’” – Malik Zulu Shabazz, Preident of The New Black Panther Party. The Justice Department has seen fit to drop voter intimidation charges against Malik Shabazz’ New Black Panther Party’s involvement in the now infamous events at a polling place in Philadelphia on November 4, 2008. In light of the recent testimony by former DOJ attorney J. Christian […]
When Attorney General Eric Holder suddenly reversed course and had the DoJ dismiss the voter-intimidation case against two New Black Panther Party activists stemming from an incident in 2008 in Philadelphia, many questioned why the DoJ would quit a case it had already won. Attorneys within the DoJ wondered why the federal government had suddenly become disinterested in voter intimidation. Some, like Christian Adams, Asheesh Agarwal, and Mark Corallo have gone public with their outrage, and also wonder where the hell Congress has gone in its duty to oversee the executive branch and its enforcement of laws Congress passed.
Soon after his confirmation, Attorney General Eric Holder labeled us a nation of cowards, a people supposedly unwilling or afraid to discuss race. Based on my experience as an attorney at the Civil Rights Division at the Justice Department, Holder has far more to fear from that discussion than do the rest of us.

In an attempt to look like a strong tough President Obama fires (really accepted his resignation) General McChrystal. Obama’s PR team was obviously on board by having McChrystal come to the White House to divert attention from failures in the Gulf of Mexico. President Obama ousted his top commander in Afghanistan Wednesday after officials determined that comments he and his staff made in a Rolling Stone magazine article amounted to […]
The U.S. is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil’s Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro. Brazil’s planning minister confirmed that White House National Security Adviser James Jones met this month with Brazilian officials to talk about the loan. Apparently, Barack Obama’s pal George Soros has invested heavily in Petrobas. […]
Maybe it is my Catholic upbringing, but I’ve always been cursed with a bit too much empathy. It is often difficult to witness people bearing the full weight of the consequences of their decisions, even when it is richly deserved. (And, in the case of House Democrats few have ever been more deserving of reaping everything they’ve sown.) We’re human, after all, and witnessing people on the cusp of realizing […]
The Political Operatives Wesley Donehue and Phil Bailey who hosts the Columbia, SC political webcast Pub Politics has decided not to post the program where Guest, Republican State Senator Jake Knotts, said “we already have a Rag Head in the White House, we don’t need another in the Governor’s Mansion”. Donehue told CNN last night that he would be posting the video online today. He is having second thoughts as […]
Another, yes another GOP Congressman thinks his Aide is there for sex.

Yes, it is an extramarital affair that ends Souder’s career in Congress. […]
What if Nashville were New Orleans? What if George Bush Were the President? The mainstream media would be all over this as a poor response from the Administration. It is obvious that a total double standard is in play for the current occupant of the White house. President Obama seems to be immune from any criticism on Nashville and all of Tennessee.
