    WASHINGTON — Justice Department watchdogs ran into an unexpected roadblock last year when they began examining the role of federal drug agents in the fatal shootings of unarmed civilians during raids in Honduras. From Our Advertisers The Drug Enforcement Administration balked at turning over emails from senior officials tied to the raids, according to the department’s inspector general. It took nearly a year of wrangling before the D.E.A. was willing to turn over all its records in a case that the inspector general said raised “serious questions” about agents’ use of deadly force. The continuing Honduran inquiry is one of...

    The Obama administration let hundreds of illegal immigrants stay in the U.S. even though federal authorities knew in advance that an open borders group coached them to falsely claim "credible fear" to get asylum, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The operation was part of a scam conducted by an immigrant rights organization called the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NITA), which in recent years has coordinated demonstrations along the Southwest border in Texas and Arizona. In mid-2014 the group orchestrated a racket seeking to bring 250 illegal aliens into the U.S. through...

    The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court to reinstate President Obama's deportation amnestyFriday, filing papers appealing a federal appeals court's decision blocking the amnesty exactly a year after the program was first announced. Administration officials hope to get the case on the high court's calendar for this term, which ends in June. Otherwise the case would have to wait to be heard until October 2016, at the earliest, which would mean a decision likely wouldn't come until after Mr. Obama leaves office and a new president has a chance to undo his moves. Mr. Obama is desperate to try to...

    McDonald’s settled a lawsuit filed by the Department of Justice. According to a DOJ statement, McDonalds and its affiliates and subsidiaries thus resolved allegations that the corporation had discriminated illegally against immigrant employees at corporate-owned restaurants. In a press release, DOJ declared, “…the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) prohibits employers from placing additional documentary burdens on work-authorized employees during the employment eligibility verification process because of their citizenship or immigration status.”   The Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC) at DOJ initiated its investigation after it had received information on its worker...

In a press released posted Sunday night, the APA said outside scholars had examined the study, "Preliminary Data Suggest Rates of Male Sexual Trauma May be Higher than Previously Reported," and determined that the method for randomly selecting and surveying male combat veterans was flawed.

    US Attorney General Loretta Lynch has decreed that the Department of Justice will no longer use the term "juvenile delinquent" to describe youthful lawbreakers. The new term to be used is "justice involved youth." "Juvenile delinquent has too negative a connotation," Lynch said. "Both words are demeaning. The word 'juvenile' is frequently used to convey an impression of immaturity. To call someone juvenile is, by itself, insulting. Similarly, the word 'delinquent' is judgmental. It communicates a message of wrongful behavior." "The new terminology is more positive sounding," she continued. "A justice involved youth does not stigmatize an individual. It just...

Clinton's plan would include doubling funding for the Justice Department's collaborative reform program that works with police departments to implement change, expanding the Civil Rights Division unit that investigates law enforcement agencies, and adding funds for training for officers on the federal, state and local level. Clinton supports giving subpoena power to Justice Department lawyers investigating law enforcement agencies that may...

Grimm filed a lawsuit in June against the Gloucester County School Board in Virginia for access to the boys’ restroom. “Prohibiting a transgender male student from using boys’ restrooms, when other non-transgender male students face no such restriction, deprives him not only of equal educational opportunity but also ‘of equal status, respect, and dignity,’” the DOE and DOJ attorneys argue in the brief. “Treating...

    The Obama Justice Department is suing an Illinois town for denying a rezoning application to convert an office building into an Islamic temple. Anywhere American law and Islamic law conflict, its American law that has to give way. Islamic supremacists and Muslim Brotherhood organizations like CAIR have once again called upon their running dogs at the Department of Justice, to impose the sharia and usurp American law for Islamic law. The DoJ has become the de facto legal arm of terror-tied Muslim Brotherhood groups in this country. What small town can go up against the U.S. governments vast resources and...

    He attacks Obama's co-opting of the DOJ for the advancement of leftism, not justice. Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey delivered a sharp criticism of the Obama Justice Department, particularly the DOJ Voting Section, in a speech republished in Hillsdale Colleges Imprimis . In a broadside aimed at the Obama-era DOJ, Mukasey hits the departments biased and partisan law enforcement policies. Mukaseys speech should be required reading for every presidential campaign. Mukasey revisits the dismissal of the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party by Eric Holder and other political appointees shortly after the 2009 inauguration: During the 2008...

    In its latest effort to protect Muslim rights in the United States the Obama Justice Department is suing an Illinois town for denying a rezoning application to convert an office building into an Islamic temple. Failing to approve plans for the Islamic worship center violates a 2000 law known as the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA), according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit filed this week in federal court. The accused are lawmakers in Des Plaines, a Chicago suburb with a population of about 60,000. In 2013 the Des Plaines City Council voted 5-3 to reject...

    John Hawkins writes at Townhall: "Boehner Resigned? Good. Go Cry, Drink And Surrender Somewhere Else." Well, Boehner's resignation is far too late for me and especially far too late for the Fast and Furious investigation that he derailed because the FBI was blackmailing him. Long-time readers will recall that when the Issa committee got around to noticing the fact, uncovered by this blog and FOX News' William La Jeunesse, that the middle men who the ATF agents were forbidden by their superiors from following (the ones who actually transported the weapons across the border) were the Miramontes brothers who were...

    Corruption: One carmaker's mistake killed nearly 200. Another might have evaded federal emissions laws while a third failed to issue a recall. Which one committed the biggest sin, according to the government? Here's a hint: It's not the automaker known as Government Motors. GM, more officially known as General Motors, will pay a $900 million fine in a settlement reached last week with the Justice Department. The automaker admits it hid an ignition-switch problem that has been linked to 174 deaths.

    The response of the Justice Department to General Motors ignition switch defect cover-up was announced last week. GMs failure to address the deadly defect led to the loss of lives of at least 169 people. Any hopes for the families of the victims that the crony status of GM would not stand in the way of justice were squashed as the company was given a slap on the wrist by its friends at the Obama Administration. The Justice Departments news release regarding the meager $900 million penalty reeked of hypocrisy as it tried to paint a picture of a repentant...
