Skip to comments.Obama’s Justice Department clears itself (Rubin rips DOJ)

Last week intentionally gullible (frightful if they actually buy what they are writing) apologists for the Obama Justice Department proclaimed that the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) scandal was really nothing at all. You see, the Justice Departments own Office of Personal Responsibility (OPR) had given the department a clean bill of health! Aside from the obvious hypocrisy would a Bush self-investigation be given credence by such Obama cheerleaders? there are multiple grounds for dismissing this as another effort at stonewalling in a scandal that has had many such examples. None of these concern the left (whether those in the left blogosphere or administration defenders such as Commissioner Michael Yaki on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, who oddly was the single commissioner interviewed when the report was released) .
Lets start with the obvious. OPR is as unprofessional as it is biased. Remember the investigation of lawyers John Yoo and Jay Bybee? The work was so shoddy the attorney general brought in a career professional to redo it and in fact reject the OPR findings. I contacted one victim of that witch hunt John Yoo on Friday. He said of the latest OPR effort: OPR is showing yet again that it is a biased office, pursuing an ideological agenda, flinging about flawed work product that is unworthy of the Justice Department.
OPR hasnt gotten any better since the Yoo-Bybee fiasco. In fact, it has gotten worse, as former Justice Department attorney Hans von Spakovsky pointed out:

Thanks for helping me believe the Bible, DOJ. “Every way of a fool is” really “right in his own eyes,” isn’t it?
The fox is guarding the hen house and then authorizes another fox to write a report on why it’s okay for foxes to guard hens.
Exactly. I can’t remember any more blatant corruption in the DOJ in an administration.
The King and I alone will determine who shall get WHICH justice.
Do not expect transparency, or protection from your
worthless Constitution -- unless have a DNC, or terrorist, card -
or are one of "our people" in our internal militia
DOJ is ethically challenged...since Holder/Rich pardons...Can’t wait to get these creeps outta office!
Eric Holder, testi-lying in front of a Congressional Committee investigating the Black Panther fiasco, basically said that one little incident of a White being intimidated at the polls by a Black doesn’t mean a thing when compared with the history of Whites’ injustice to Blacks.
I can’t seem to locate that section of the Constitution that says that two wrongs do make a right, even if one of the wrongs was committed decades, or even centuries ago.
“I cant seem to locate that section of the Constitution that says that two wrongs do make a right, even if one of the wrongs was committed decades, or even centuries ago.”
The judge presiding over the Duke lacrosse case suits (against Duke and Durham, by the lacrosse team players) just dismissed one count of their suit, on the grounds that since the actions of the Black Panther party against them (threatening them with death, etc.) were not like Klan activities (?);
and in addition since the players did not have a long history of discrimination against them...
the relevant civil rights statues under which they were suing (section 1985) did not apply to them.
