  • FBI arrests two would-be Ferguson bomb suspects: law enforcement source

    Reuters ^ | November 22, 2014 | Daniel Wallis
    Two men suspected of buying explosives they planned to detonate during protests in Ferguson, Missouri, once a grand jury decides the Michael Brown case, were arrested on Friday and charged with federal firearms offenses, a law enforcement official told Reuters. Word of the arrests, reported by a number of media outlets Friday, came ahead of the grand jury's widely anticipated decision on whether the white police officer who fatally shot Brown, an unarmed black teenager, should be indicted on criminal charges. The Aug. 9 slaying of 18-year-old Brown under disputed circumstances became a flashpoint for U.S. racial tensions, triggering weeks...

Several times Shabazz explained he is calling for a, "rebellion" against America and the "wicked world order," explaining "we have as much right to rebel against America society as America did against the British." ...more (w/audio)...

    Many African American church leaders told News 4 a man pretending to spread messages of peace is actually escalating violence in Ferguson. Pastors are pointing the finger at Malik Shabazz, the former leader of the New Black Panther Party, and many church leaders want him to leave Ferguson. “I am upset with a certain group of them that are rebel rousers. We know them by name. Last night was the scariest night of my life,” said Pastor Mike Robinson. Robinson said there is growing concern over Shabazz and what he is doing in Ferguson.

    Katherine Ann Power’s story plays out like a Hollywood movie: the radical anti-war college student participated in a Boston bank heist in 1970, intending to help fund a revolution. The heist went horribly wrong; her co-conspirators were arrested, and Power — the getaway driver — hid from the FBI for more than two decades under a different identity, spending some of that time working and raising a family in Lebanon, Corvallis and Albany. The difference, Power said, is that she is not a movie protagonist, and Boston Police Officer Walter Schroeder, who was shot and killed during the heist, was...

    This week the FBI announced a $1 million reward for "information leading to the apprehension" of Joanne Chesimard also known as Assata Shakur who they named a "Most Wanted Terrorist." Chesimard is the first woman to make the FBI’s list. The New Jersey State Police Dept., who also wants her, added another $1 million to the pot. Convicted cop-killer (of a New Jersey State-Trooper) and "domestic terrorist" Chesimard has been living in Cuba since 1984 as a Castro-coddled celebrity of sorts. And it’s not like bounty hunters can operate freely in a Stalinist country. So the $2 million may be...

    In a little noted decision on July 23, a federal district court judge concluded that internal DOJ documents about the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case “contradict Assistant Attorney General [Thomas] Perez’s testimony that political leadership was not involved in” the decision to dismiss the case. In other words, the sworn testimony of Perez, the Obama political appointee who heads the Civil Rights Division, before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights was apparently false. The decision in Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice by Judge Reggie Walton was in a case filed by Judicial Watch after the Civil...

In a theatrical stunt to comment on the controversy surrounding the shooting of hooded Trayvon Martin, Rep. Rush pulled a hoodie over his head and went on a rant. Rep.

    The Black Panther voter-intimidation scandal is approaching the boiling point on four different burners. Evidence grows that the Justice Department is using illegitimate means to keep a lid on legitimate investigations. Because his department can’t be trusted to police itself, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. needs to appoint a special counsel. On Wednesday, Judicial Watch - a private watchdog - filed a brief in its case seeking release of official memoranda, arguing that government stonewalling, “is about political interference in [Justice’s] decision-making process and [the department‘s] efforts to avoid public scrutiny of that interference.” Most abused is the “deliberative...

    The Justice Department has tried to hide the involvement of high-level political officials in the dismissal of a controversial voter-intimidation lawsuit against members of the New Black Panther Party, a federal commission concluded in a draft report. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights said the department's reversal in the case, which drew criticism from conservatives, indicates that its Civil Rights Division is failing to protect white voters and is "at war with its core mission of guaranteeing equal protection of the laws for all Americans.'' The Justice Department strongly denied the allegations in the report based on the commission's year-long...

    Justice: Despite administration denials under oath, documents obtained by a watchdog group indicate that the decision not to pursue a clear-cut case of voter intimidation was indeed a political decision. It was perhaps the most clear-cut case of voter intimidation ever. On Election Day 2008, New Black Panther Party members King Samir Shabazz, Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson were videotaped intimidating voters as they stood, dressed in military garb, outside a Philadelphia polling place. Their conduct was so egregious that the Justice Department of President Bush charged the three thugs with violations of the 1965 Voting Rights Act through...

    Rewarding a non-investigation with a seat on the benchThe Obama administration's controversial abandonment of a voter-intimidation case against members of the New Black Panther Party is bordering on sinister. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. should appoint a thoroughly independent special counsel to look into the Black Panther case immediately. It was bad enough that the Justice Department flagrantly stonewalled an investigation of the matter by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, which soon will reschedule its weather-delayed first formal hearing on the subject. Now we learn from the "Main Justice" Web site that the person assigned by the department...

    In case you wonder what the future is for justice and law enforcement and media control in this country, take a look at two cases. During the last Presidential election, a gang of men calling themselves Black Panthers showed up at a polling place in Michigan. They threatened any voter who did not vote for Barack Obama. This was witnessed and documented. (I am suspicious of their involvement with the real Black Panthers, whom I knew well in New Haven, who had a little more finesse along with many, many faults.) The bullying was barely reported in the media. Even...

    On election day in 2008, the New Black Panther Party had a group of people intimidating voters in Philadelphia. The case was a slam dunk: there is a video of the Party members outside the polling place; dressed in military-style uniforms while one is waving a truncheon. Racial epithets were hurled at prospective voters, including the elderly. The Department of Justice filed suit, the New Black Panther Party did not deny the charges, the court entered a default judgment and department lawyers were preparing a list of sanctions. Instead, lawyers at the Civil Rights Division were ordered to drop the...

    A particularly heinous election day event happened in Philadelphia where members of the New Black Panther Party in black berets, black combat boots, black shirts and black jackets intimidated Caucasian voters with racial insults, slurs and a nightstick. Another party member was accused of managing, directing and endorsing their behavior. The entire event was captured on videotape. In January, the Justice Dept filed a civil complaint against the New Black Panther Party. When the court date arrived In April, a federal judge had ordered default judgments against the Panthers after they refused to respond to the charges or appear in...

    Malik Zulu Shabazz, national chairman of the radical New Black Panther Party, refused to confirm or deny to WND whether he visited the White House since President Obama took office, despite his name appearing on a recent administration disclosure. Shabazz' namesake was among the 110 names and 481 visits released by the White House on Friday as part of the Obama administration 's so-called volunteer disclosure policy. The names were just a fraction of the hundreds of thousands of visitors who have gone through the White House's doors since January. Among the famous names that stood out on the brief...

    Anti-cop mission drawn up by Black Panther group Van Jones, President Obama's controversial environmental adviser, signed a petition calling for nationwide "resistance" against police, accusing them of using the 9/11 attacks to carry out policies of torture. The petition was organized by the October 22nd Coalition, an anti-police organization whose mission statement was drawn up by leaders of the radical Black Panther Collective for Social Progress. The movement organizes yearly national anti-police demonstrations, accusing police of "brutality, detentions, domestic spying, profiling and other attacks on human and civil liberties." The protests are held under the banner of the National Day...

    President Obama's Justice Department continues to stonewall inquiries about why it dropped a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party. The episode—which Bartle Bull, a former civil rights lawyer and publisher of the left-wing Village Voice, calls "the most blatant form of voter intimidation I've ever seen"—began on Election Day 2008. Mr. Bull and others witnessed two Black Panthers in paramilitary garb at a polling place near downtown Philadelphia. (Some of this behavior is on YouTube.) ... The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights voted on Aug. 7 to send a letter to Justice expanding its own investigation and...

    Even if the liberal media continue to ignore it, the Justice Department's dismissal of a voter-intimidation case against members of the New Black Panther Party is a full-blown scandal. Fortunately, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is pursuing justice even though the Department of Justice is not. As reported in our news pages last Friday, the commission has sent a strongly worded letter to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., effectively threatening to subpoena witnesses and documents if Justice does not provide better, more complete answers about its decision to dismiss the cases. "We believe the Department's defense of its...
