    Associated Press ^ | Dec 18, 2014 6:20 PM EST
    The Justice Department is now interpreting federal law to explicitly prohibit workplace discrimination against transgender people, according to a memo released Thursday by Attorney General Eric Holder. That means the Justice Department will be able to bring legal claims on behalf of people who say they’ve been discriminated against by state and local public employers based on sex identity. In defending lawsuits, the federal government also will no longer take the position that Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act, which bans sex discrimination, does not protect against workplace discrimination on the basis of gender status. …

    Transgender employees will be protected from workplace discrimination in the public sector, the Department of Justice announced Thursday. Previously, workplace discrimination laws in the public sector excluded discrimination on the basis of a person’s gender identity, the Justice Department noted. But Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday that the federal government’s views on this issue have “evolved over time.”"I have determined that the best reading of Title VII's prohibition of sex discrimination is that it encompasses discrimination based on gender identity, including transgender status,” Holder wrote in a memo to DOJ officials. Public sector workers who are gay are already...

The U.S. government reached the settlement with the city over its 2012 rejection of a proposed Islamic center. Since the Islamic center bought the St. Anthony Business Center in 2011, its leaders have wanted to maintain office space for the current tenants and to hold its religious gatherings in the building's basement level.

And the real number of assault victims is several orders of magnitude lower than one-in-five.

    A federal autopsy in the Ferguson police shooting reached similar conclusions to those performed by local officials and a private examiner hired by 18-year-old Michael Brown's family, documents show. The Armed Forces Medical Examiner System's autopsy on Brown, conducted at the request of the Department of Justice, was among grand jury documents that St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch released Monday with little explanation. Other documents include transcripts of eight federal interviews of possible witnesses to Brown's shooting in early August; police radio traffic; and an alleged audio recording of the shots fired by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

'Even if there were overall statistical evidence of differential rates of commission of certain offenses among individuals possessing particular characteristics, the affirmative use of such generalized notions by law enforcement officers in routine, spontaneous law enforcement activities is tantamount to stereotyping," and therefore punishable, Holder warned in his 12-page guidance. "Even if?" Holder's acting dumb. He's fully aware such evidence exists. And it's highly relevant to proactive policing, because it shows...

And my answer to that would be, ‘Why would I be any place other than right here, right now?’ But when it comes to police shooting unarmed civilians, is it really that uncommon? A New York Times piece in 2011 posed the question...

    President Obama on Monday will focus on the relationship between local police and the communities they protect and serve in the wake of sometimes violent protests in Ferguson, Mo. Obama will meet with Cabinet members to discuss a review the president ordered in August of federal funding and programs that provide equipment to state and local law enforcement agencies, according to the White House. Law enforcement officials were criticized for their militarized response to protests in Ferguson after a police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown. A grand jury last week refused to indict Ferguson police...

"The grand jury decided not to indict Darren Wilson because of 'conflicting evidence', which is why...

    In a bizarre decision in Agent Dobyns' case.  Judge Frances M. Allegra, voided his own decision in favor of Jay Dobyns. That decision excoriated the ATF, and was appealed by them to the Federal Court of Appeals.   The appeal and a cross-appeal are still in process.  In addion, Judge Allegra sealed all records concerning the case.  From azcentral.com: U.S. Court of Federal Claims Judge Francis M. Allegra, who issued a 54-page decision in favor of that ex-agent, Jay Dobyns, in August, voided his decision on Oct. 29, according to a court notice filed Nov. 5. The notice does not...

    The IRS’ improper disclosure of taxpayer information to the White House was extensively investigated, according to thousands of documents the Department of Justice (DOJ) is currently sitting on and could release within the next two weeks. The Daily Caller first reported that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner and White House policy adviser Jeanne Lambrew exchanged confidential taxpayer information about a conservative group that was suing to stop Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate in 2012. Now, with 30,000 Lerner emails set to be turned over to Congress, new information is surfacing about the White House-IRS information pipeline. The legal advocacy firm Cause of Action...

    The Justice Department’s massive mortgage settlements against two bank giants requires them to give millions to liberal advocacy groups, and House Republicans are trying to find out why. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and House Financial Services Chairman Jeb Hensarling asked Attorney General Eric Holder seeking details about who was involved in steering the funds from the Bank of America and Citigroup settlements this way, which they said was an unprecedented departure from other settlements. “It seems that the alleged victims are not the primary beneficiaries of these multi-billion dollar settlements,” the House chairmen said in the letter....

    Earlier this year when President Obama nominated cop killer advocate Debo Adegbile to head up the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, Attorney General Eric Holder applauded the move. Because of Adegbile's voluntary work on behalf of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal, who brutally murdered Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner in cold blood back in 1981 ---snip--- Now, Holder has sided with a new set of alleged cop killers in Virginia by taking the death penalty out of consideration for four gang members who kidnapped and murdered Police Officer Kevin Quick.

    After the tumultuous Attorney Generalship of Eric Holder, what the country badly needs is a replacement who will uphold the law fairly and guard against injustices perpetrated by the government. President Obama’s nominee to replace him, federal prosecutor Loretta Lynch is questionable in that regard because of her enthusiastic embrace of civil asset forfeiture, which often deprives perfectly innocent people of their property. In an editorial published November 22, “Loretta Lynch’s Money Pot,” the Wall Street Journal revealed that during her tenure as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Ms. Lynch has used civil asset forfeiture in...

    When history remembers the Obama administration, the flames of Ferguson will light up our memories. It wasn’t just an AutoZone and Jade Nails burning up in the fires of Ferguson, it was also the “Hope” of 2008 going up in smoke. Instead of hope, the age of Obama has been characterized by racial division and discord. Obama and Holder commanded the police to behave themselves. The police behaved, and look what happened. Last week, members of the New Black Panther Party were arrested by state officials for plotting to use pipe bombs against the St. Louis Gateway Arch and for...

    This curious statement from the outgoing Attorney General came at a curious point in time. With the grand jury’s announcement in Ferguson pushed off until 8 pm local time — and then read out with a surprisingly lengthy preamble before getting to the point — the time for the Department of Justice to remind everyone that the federal civil-rights investigation had not yet finished should have been early enough in the day to calm the crowds before they began to riot. Instead, Holder issued his statement even later than Barack Obama did, when no one in Ferguson had the time...

    Corruption: Smoking-gun emails show how the administration sought to derail a CBS reporter's investigation of its "gun-waking" operation — a reporter whose computers were mysteriously and mercilessly hacked. Fast and Furious, along with Benghazi, is one of the two "phony" administration scandals that produced body bags, and former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson is responsible for much of the truth-telling about both. That fact is enough to put her high atop the administration's enemies list. Attkisson, a casualty of liberal media bias, resigned from CBS in March after a series of clashes between her and her bosses over her exposes of...
