The Justice Department’s war on the truth

The Justice Department’s  war on the truth

The U.S. Department of Justice is becoming a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Obama administration is bowing to Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups and stopping the use of all training materials for law enforcement and  national security officials that refer to jihad and any and all references to  Islam. Yet Anwar al-Awlaki was a devout imam who preached the Quran. So  let me understand this: Obama executed Awlaki for preaching  jihad. That was all he did. Awlaki did not kill anyone. And yet Obama  orders law enforcement to drop all mention of jihad and the Islamic motivation  of terrorists. What’s the difference?

Why did he kill Awlaki?

The Justice Department held a seminar last week on  “Confronting Discrimination in the Post 9-11 Era.” Among the treacherous  conspirators indoctrinating believers and non-believers was the notorious Jew-hating pollster James Zogby and the ghastly leader of the  Muslim Brotherhood-tied Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Mohammed Magid.

James Lafferty, a board member of my organization, the American Freedom  Defense Initiative (AFDI), was there and reported: “Speaker after speaker  recited anecdote after anecdote which demonstrated that, except for the Justice  Department, law enforcement is conspiring with ‘bigoted’ Americans to suspend  the First Amendment protections of religious expression and free speech.”

The DOJ promised to fight that “bigotry” by changing training materials  designed to help law enforcement officials understand the jihad threat. Dwight  Holton, the U.S. attorney in Oregon, said: “I want to be perfectly clear about  this: Training materials that portray Islam as a religion of violence or with a  tendency toward violence are wrong, they are offensive, and they are contrary to  everything that this president, this attorney general and Department of Justice  stands for. They will not be tolerated.”

The only ones really responsible for the idea that Islam  is “a religion of violence or with a tendency toward violence” are the Muslims  who act violently and justify their violence by quoting the Quran. That isn’t  “bigotry.” It’s the truth.

This comes fresh on the heels of my recent WND column, “Obama’s  Department of Shariah,” describing how the DOJ is actively pursing cases to  gain special privileges for Muslims. In case after case, the Department of  Justice’s pursuit of the Shariah is surpassed only by that of the Supreme  Council of Al-Azhar, the most prestigious institution in Sunni Islam.

How can Obama enforce the blasphemy laws of the Shariah (do not criticize,  offend or speak truthfully about Islam) and order the killing of Imam Awlaki?  Think about that.

Banning study of the religious motivation of Muslim  terrorists has been a cornerstone of this national-security policy  throughout the Obama administration, but Obama orders the executions of those  who are proselytizing for and advancing what they present as pure Islam,  authentic Islam.

What is this policy? Perhaps Obama prefers the stealth  jihad, and the violent jihad only calls attention to  the true nature of Islamic law. Incoherent is a best-case scenario  explanation on this, but I do not believe that. In my book “The  Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War On America,” I give  the details of his pro-Islam leanings from the beginning of his career. And now  as president, on foreign policy, he has aided and abetted the overthrow of  secular governments. Libya, like Tunisia and Egypt, is heading toward becoming  an Islamic state. His anti-Israel policies have led to the increased isolation  of the tiny Jewish state, making it a ripe target for Islamic imperialists and  devout Muslims.

And his Department of Justice is on the offense against America. While doing  research for my book “Stop  the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance,” I  discovered some startling information about the full extent  of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in the Department of Justice and its brazen  pro-Muslim activities, including the creation  of Muslim-majority legislative districts. And when I inquired  for documentation related to these activities, the DOJ’s response to me  indicated that the agency’s ties with Islamic supremacist groups are far more  extensive than anyone has realized. Nelson Hermilla of the DOJ responded,  telling me that my request involved 14,100 documents that I could only get by  paying $1,400.

It is a bombshell that there would be more than 14,000 documents identified  as a result of the FOIA request I made to the Department of Justice. I made a  relatively isolated request on a narrow topic the Civil Rights Division really  doesn’t even have direct jurisdiction over (“Muslim outreach”), and they come up  with over 14,000 documents.

Hermilla complained that “it is not clear in what manner the collection of  all five-year’s records might contribute to the general public understanding.”  That they would challenge the “public interest” aspect of my request is also  astounding. Given the recent coverage of the DOJ’s scuttling  of the prosecution of CAIR officials in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas funding  case, and its advocacy for the Muslim schoolteacher  who demanded a month off to go to Mecca and was given $75,000 in a  settlement, their claim is flimsy.

Hermilla is flouting the law by making me wait for eight months now since my  first request, making a mockery of Obama’s promise to run a transparent  administration and suppressing information that is critical for the American  public to know. They still have not turned over any of these documents.

Concurrently, DOJ whistleblower J. Christian Adams has  revealed that “all 10 new hires to the Justice  Department’s Criminal Section have far-left resumes.” Every hire Holder  is making is one that America will have to live with long after Obama is gone.  They have put in place the legal apparatus to pursue a  treasonous agenda.

The American people should demand that the next president prosecute the  Muslim Brotherhood co-conspirators and pledge to purge their operatives in the  Department of Justice, Department of State and Department of  Defense.

Obama/Holder Could Face Felony Charges for Fast and Furious

Doug Book,FloydReports.com

Why waste time asking “What did you know and when did you know it?” when the
Obama Regime might already face felony charges?

That’s the question Attorney David Hardy and others are asking those
investigating the role of Regime members in the deadly gun walking fiasco,Fast
and Furious.

Since whistleblowers
brought this scheme to the attention of Congress early this year,Senator Charles
Grassley and Congressman Darrell Issa have been frustrated
by Department of Justice stonewalling,subterfuge,and
misrepresentation.

As Grassley wrote to Attorney General Eric Holder in a July 18th
correspondence,“If the attorneys working on the [Justice] Department’s response
to the Committee spent less time redacting documents and more time producing
them,we would be much closer to understanding the failures in leadership
surrounding Operation Fast and Furious.”

But it is Hardy’s contention that….

Golfing While the Constitution Burns

Golfing While the Constitution Burns

Ben Johnson, The White House Watch

 

When Barack Obama and John Boehner played golf this weekend, they played
on the same team
. How appropriate.

Barack Obama has violated the Constitution’s war-making power – reserved by
Article I, Section 8,
to Congress – from the moment he sent American troops into harm’s way without
Congressional approval. He has been violating the War Powers Resolution since at
least the 60th day of that campaign. And he has violated the most
liberal reading of that act – the one Boehner has adopted as his own – since
this weekend. Yet despite the letter
Boehner authored last week, which the media presented as an “ultimatum,”
Obama has neither obtained Congressional authorization nor removed our troops.
Boehner’s
letter weakly supplicated
“I sincerely hope the Administration will
faithfully comply with the War Powers Resolution,” but at least it seemed to set
this weekend as a definitive cut-off point.

The “deadline” has come and gone, and Obama has not answered the most burning
questions of the mission’s legality to anyone’s satisfaction. Instead, the
president has thumbed his nose at Congress in general, Boehner in particular,
and the American people at large, and the Speaker-cum-caddy has made no
meaningful response whatsoever.

Obama insists the American role in Libya is too diminutive to constitute
“hostilities,” so his action is perfectly legal. White House spokesman Jay
Carney repeated
his boss’s party line at Monday’s press conference, stating, “the War Powers
Resolution does not need to be involved because the ‘hostilities’ clause of that
resolution is not met.” However, soldiers in Libya are receiving an additional
$25
a month in “imminent danger pay.”
American drones still rain missiles down
upon military targets. NATO is alternately
bombing
Muammar Qaddafi’s home
and killing the innocent Libyan civilians they are
purportedly protecting. (We had to kill the civilians in order to save them?)
NATO admitted (at
least
) one of its bombs went off target on Sunday, killing
nine civilians in Tripoli
, while allied bombs allegedly killed
15 civilians in Sorman on Monday
.

Not to worry, though; Defense Secretary Robert Gates said over the weekend,
in a confidence-builder worthy of Churchill, “I think this is
going to end OK.”
Gates, who once
opposed
the Libyan adventure, has pulled
a 180
on the matter.

Even Obama’s short-term fellow Illinois Senator, Dick Durbin, agrees
Libya more than rises to the level of hostilities.

So, too, we have learned, do the best legal minds of Obama’s administration
(not a coveted nor much-contested title, I assure you). In overruling
his own lawyers, Obama rejected the
considered conclusions
of Jeh C. Johnson, the Pentagon’s general counsel,
and Caroline Krass, the acting head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal
Counsel (OLC). The New York Times reported
it is “extraordinarily rare” for any president to overrule the OLC. “Under
normal circumstances, the office’s interpretation of the law is legally binding
on the executive branch.”

But then, nothing in the Obama administration transpires under “normal
circumstances.”

Two former OLC lawyers outlined precisely how unusual the dismissal was….

Sex Change You Can Believe In! Obama is the Most Pro-Transgender President Ever

Sex Change You Can Believe In! Obama is the Most Pro-Transgender
President Ever

May 5th, 2011

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com

HUD’s new ad campaign promoting transgender
rights.

Call it sex-change you can believe in. This author reported Tuesday that Barack
Obama had held the first-ever White House transgender conference
last
Friday. The People’s House conducted this proud meeting in such complete secrecy
that we know the identity of only one attendee, Mara Keisling of the National
Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE), a group lobbying for “a comprehensive
civil rights bill that protects people from discrimination based on gender
identity.”
The measure, which would forbid private individuals from refusing
to do business with or rent a home to a cross-dresser, is but one of many
extremist policies that earned NCTE a meeting with White House brass. The U.S.
Civil Rights Commission is now planning to “hold its first-ever hearing to
specifically address the civil rights of LGBT people.” Despite these “firsts,”
the Obama administration has already advanced transgender interest groups
through a series of executive fiats. If you don’t believe me, believe The
Huffington Post
. It remarked
that a recent housing proposal “marks the latest in a string of Obama
administration attempts to enhance gay rights through federal regulation.” Some
of the administration’s actions literally redefine the government’s definition
of the family, stifle any opposition to gender confusion, and encourage
schoolchildren to think of transgender practices as normal and mainstream (or
else).

The First Transgender Appointee?

Last January, Obama named Amanda Simpson the Senior
Technical Advisor to the Commerce Department
. Simpson, who served as a test
pilot and longtime employee of Raytheon before becoming a “woman,” sits on
NCTE’s board of directors. The move was thought to be the first-ever transgender
presidential appointment.

During his budget
showdown with John Boehner
, Obama (and Boehner)
managed to see that LGBT programs escaped deep
budget cuts
. Aside from these two matters, Obama has chosen to act through
federal regulation, having government agencies write new rules without sullying
his own hands. His administration has proven indefatigable in pursuing
transgender concerns.

Thoughtcrime, Obama-Style

Last Thursday, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis (an Open Borders advocate) issued
the department’s new
harassment policy
, which applies not only to the department but to all its
“contractors at every level.” It bans….

Obama Asks Terrorism Help — from Muslim Brotherhood Spinoff

Obama Asks Terrorism Help — from Muslim Brotherhood
Spinoff

March 7th, 2011

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com
As more sober
minds consider ways to keep
the Middle East from falling into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood
,
Barack Obama is “fighting terrorism” by reaching out to the leader of one of the
Brotherhood’s American creations. In the process, a White House official
revealed that radical Muslims frequently advise the White House office headed by
the president’s top adviser and alter ego, Valerie Jarrett.
Preemptive Groveling
Flush with instances of American Muslims supporting Islamic jihad,
Rep. Peter King is set to launch his investigation into the radicalization of
U.S. mosques, imams, and the faithful they serve later
this week
. Barack Obama, ever keen to reach out to the Muslim
community
, decided to get ahead of this by sending a deputy to plead with
the extremists for cooperation. On Sunday, Deputy National Security Advisor
Denis McDonough spoke
to a Sterling, Virginia, mosque
some believe is a model of moderate Islam:
the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), led by imam Mohamed Magid. Indeed,
McDonough began by thanking Magid by name.
Although the Sudanese-born imam presents himself as an ecumenical,
anti-terrorism leader active in “interfaith” outreach, his current associations
— and those of others at his mosque — present a different picture.
A Dangerous Mosque

This author exposed
ADAMS’s radical connections nearly seven years
. At the time, ADAMS’s
chairman was Ahmad Totonji, an Iraqi-born citizen of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia
who was named as a
defendant
in a $1 trillion lawsuit filed by more than 600 relatives of
people who died in the 9/11 attacks. He served as Vice President of the Safa
Group and the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT), which
officials have linked to al-Qaeda,
Palestinian
Islamic Jihad
, and Sami al-Arian.
(Al-Arian served more than five years in prison after pleading guilty to
conspiracy to aid terrorism, and he is currently under house arrest awaiting his
contempt trial, which has been mysteriously
stalled
.) ADAMS’s legal counsel, Muhammed Ashraf, was the attorney for
Abdurahman Alamoudi, who is now serving 23 years in prison for laundering
money for Muammar Qaddafi
in a plot to kill a Saudi prince.
Magid was on the premises of ADAMS’s Herndon, Virginia, offices when federal
agents stormed the facility in March 2002. The “Grove Street Addresses” provided
the homes of more than 100 interlocking Muslim organizations that the government
accused of providing material support for terrorism. After the raid, Magid
assembled a “community building” meeting at ADAMS attended by a variety of
extremists.

Justice Dept. Sues School for Not Letting Muslim Teacher go to Mecca

Justice Dept. Sues School for Not Letting Muslim Teacher go to Mecca

December 16th, 2010

FoxNews.com

The  federal government sued a suburban Chicago school district  Monday for  denying a Muslim middle school teacher unpaid leave to make a  pilgrimage  to Mecca that is a central part of her religion.

In a civil rights case, the department said  the school district in  Berkeley, Ill., denied the request of Safoorah  Khan on grounds that her  requested leave was unrelated to her  professional duties and was not  set forth in the contract between the  school district and the teachers  union. In doing so the school district  violated the Civil Rights Act of  1964 by failing to reasonably  accommodate her religious practices, the  government said.

Khan wanted to perform the Hajj, the  pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi  Arabia which every adult Muslim is supposed  to make at least once in a  lifetime if they are physically and  financially able to. Millions go  each year.

Khan started as a middle school teacher for Berkeley School District 87 — about 15 miles west of Chicago — in   2007. In 2008, she asked for almost three weeks of unpaid leave to   perform the Hajj. After the district twice denied her request, Khan   wrote the board that “based on her religious beliefs, she could not   justify delaying performing hajj,” and resigned shortly thereafter,   according to the lawsuit filed in federal court in Chicago.

Obama’s DoJ Promises to Keep Serving Muslim Interests

Obama’s DoJ Promises to Keep Serving Muslim Interests

December 13th, 2010

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com

Here’s a measure of just how subservient our present leadership is to American Muslims: Attorney General Eric Holder is reassuring Muslim groups that the Justice Department will continue persecuting prosecuting their enemies after they “raised concerns” the feds were   unfairly targeting the Religion of Peace. The trouble, it seems, is that   the Justice Department keeps arresting Muslims trying to blow their   adopted country to Mahdi-come. According to TheBlaze.com:

Attorney   General Eric Holder reiterated his resolve to prosecute hate  crimes while standing behind the methods used in anti-terrorism cases  during a     speech Friday night before a Muslim advocacy group near San     Francisco.

Speaking to Muslim Advocates, a San Francisco-based   group, Holder    told the group that he’s heard from many Muslim and  Arab  Americans who    feel uneasy and singled out by law enforcement.

The   organization is one of several groups voicing concerns over   hate    crimes, alleged rights violations at the hands of law enforcement   and    the tactics used in anti-terrorism cases.

Carefully-crafted  sting  operations by FBI and Justice Department    officials have  included plots  against a Portland, Ore., Christmas    celebration,  Dallas skyscrapers,  Washington subways, a Chicago  nightclub   and New  York’s John F. Kennedy  International Airport.

(You can read more of Holder’s groveling here.) A patriotic Attorney General may have asked his hosts why it is the DoJ arrests Muslims, and only Muslims, ready to perpetrate religious violence against the United   States. He would have had the guts to challenge Muslims to assimilate   into the mainstream of the United States or enjoy their privilege of   living under their theocratic code of Shari’a law — in some country that follows it.

If Muslims in America paid greater allegiance to the United States than they do to the worldwide Islamic ummah, they would….

Obama Admin Threatens to Sue AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Obama Admin Threatens to Sue AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio

August 18th, 2010

Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

The Obama administration has decided to get tough on illegal immigration…enforcement. The Washington Post reports today that Eric Holder is threatening to sue America’s toughest sheriff, Joe Arpaio if the sheriff does not help the administration continue a second frivolous lawsuit against him:

Justice Department officials in Washington have issued a rare threat to sue Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio if he doesn’t cooperate by Tuesday with their investigation into whether he discriminates against Hispanics…a federal grand jury in Phoenix is examining whether Arpaio has used his power to investigate and intimidate political opponents and whether his office misappropriated government funds, sources said.

That sounds serious. It’s not. Apparently “civil rights groups accuse the 78-year-old lawman of racial profiling,” as they do everyone else. (The Department of Homeland Security has estimated that 62 percent of all illegal immigrants are from Mexico, and even more from other Latin American nations. This suggests a potential profile.) In addition, “some Maricopa County officials say Arpaio has launched meritless corruption investigations against officials who have criticized his policies or opposed his requests” — so they’re launching a meritless investigation of Arpaio.

The Attorney General is demanding compliance even as his Justice Dept. is stonewalling an investigation into charges levied by a former employee that the department turns a blind eye to black crimes.

Left-leaning prosecutors do not see any merit in the case against Arpaio. Former Justice Dept. prosecutor Peter Zeidenberg, who helped prosecute Scooter Libby and donated $1,400 to Barack Obama in 2008,  said, “I don’t know what a charge would be…I’m not aware of any federal statute that would fit.”

Even the Post couldn’t help but notice the odd timing: “The standoff comes just weeks after the Justice Department sued Arizona and Gov. Jan Brewer (R) over the state’s new immigration law, heightening tensions over the issue ahead of November’s midterm elections.” This is merely a second front in the administration’s crackdown on its own citizens (on behalf of non-citizens).

Although it is unclear how he could win or hope to keep his case from being laughed out of court, Holder said he expects his case to “produce results.

That phrase reveals everything. The intention is not justice but harassment. This threatened lawsuit is simply the latest bout of federal thuggery, extortion, and intimidation against the Obama administration’s critics.

This prosecution of those who uphold the law on behalf of those who transgress the law represents Barack Obama and the Washington Democrat’’s modus operandi: every decision they make is 180-degrees from reality.

Obama will not enforce federal immigration law but is suing a state that offered to help Washington pick up the slack.

Although Obama does not want to investigate the funding of the Ground Zero mosque, Nancy Pelosi said yesterday she will “join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded.”

The president would not comment on the “wisdom” of putting a mosque on the site of the worst act of Muslim terrorism on U.S. soil (so far), but he has called police officers stupid for arresting a hostile suspect and auto officials avaricious for refusing a hostile union takeover.

He refuses to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party (who voted for Obama) for threatening to beat white voters (who have voted against him), but instructed his Dept. of Homeland Security to spy on housewives and veterans who oppose abortion or gay marriage (or, yes, illegal immigration).

Michael Reagan points out in his column today that Obama has no time for Boy Scouts or the National Prayer Breakfast but he has hosted an Iftar dinner surrounded by Muslims. (He also held a Seder that reportedly commemorated the struggle for socialized medicine.)

This is the logical outcome of an administration that believes we must tax our way into prosperity, “spend money to keep from going bankrupt,” cower our way into respect, expand health care by reducing the number of doctors, bow our way into dominance, and balkanize our way to unity.
