Nominee would be mistake

President Obama again has shown his radical agenda.

In 1982 a Black Panther member, Mumia Abu-Jamal, was convicted of murdering Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in cold blood. Abu-Jamal never denied the killing during his trial. Two hospital workers testified that Abu-Jamal confessed to them. He said, “I shot the (expletive), and I hope the (expletive) dies.” When Officer Faulkner tried to arrest Abu-Jamal’s brother during a traffic stop, authorities said, Abu-Jamal shot Officer Faulkner once in the back then stood over him and shot him four more times at close range directly in the face. Multiple eyewitnesses were present during the crime.

One of the people who tried to get Abu-Jamal off the hook was former NAACP defense attorney Debo P. Adegbile, who has worked tirelessly to free Abu-Jamal from prison.

Obama now has nominated this defender of a cold-blooded cop killer to head the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division as an assistant attorney general. Adegbile is sure to continue carrying out the radical agenda of Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder with the weight of the law behind him.

In 2010 the U.S. Supreme Court threw out the case to free Abu-Jamal, but if Adegbile is confirmed I feel sure he will investigate the Abu-Jamal case despite court rulings over the past three decades upholding his murder conviction.

In 2013 the Supreme Court struck down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act as unconstitutional, allowing states to change their voting laws without prior approval from the Justice Department. I believe that Adegbile, as Holder has done, essentially will ignore the ruling. Through his work at the NAACP and in arguments before the Supreme Court, Adegbile has made his belief very clear that civil rights do not apply to people of all races.

No one is surprised by this.

No one is surprised by this. It's a typical racially motivated move by Obama.

Well, President Obama did

Well, President Obama did promise that in 2014 there would be even more Presidential power grabs, by circumventing congress. He has said many times, in his own words "I will do everything I can, without congress, by using executive orders." Now, these words coming from a radical, are dangerous.

President Obama is getting more and more bold, every day!! He is blatantly surrounding himself with left wing radicals and laughing in the face of us who oppose it. The people who he is putting in office, are people who will support him, through and after 2016/2017!! In case they/he decides that it isn't best for the Country for him to only serve two terms, they must have people in government who will blindly support him staying. It wouldn't surprise me now, to see William Ayers given a position of power!! He is certainly a Presidential advisor at the moment.

Remember, these people literally thought he was "messiah" like and a "savior"!!! They really believe this man was the savior of this Country and still do!! Don't put ANYTHING past left wing radicals!!! If you think they aren't trying to find a way to keep him in office, you're a fool!! What better way than to just surround yourself with radicals in government, radicals government agents who will NOT enforce the Constitution!!

The left is defending/spinning Adegbile's defending...

The left is defending/spending Adegbile's defending the cop killer as he was just picked by the NAACP to be the lawyer in rotation for the case. That is a flat out lie! He sought out this case and has been a strong advocate of the killer ever since.

The cop killer has all kind of idiotic supporters from the Hollywood nuts such as Ed Asner to nearly all the Congressional Black Caucus. Where race is concern there is no shortage of ignorance and stupidity when it comes to refusing to look at facts. To many race is more important than justice or the truth.

The letter writer is right in his assessment of Obama and his appointees. Everyone he appoints/nominates is a clone of himself. He does not have to tell them what to do or how to do something because their thinking and their hatred of what America stands for are the same as his.

O's guys would never have simply put tape over the door latches

but O has does have his guys, and they're far more complex
thank you, Mr. Cushman, for an informative letter
Mumia truly shows their distaste for justice they don't agree with
and that isn't justice
no matter what they call the department

Originally, the cop killer was sentenced to death...

Originally, the cop killer was sentenced to death and it was this scum bag that was the lawyer who got the sentence changed to life. Idiots are walking around with the cop killer's picture on T-shirts just as they do with Che...completely oblivious as to what either of them really did.

Funny how so many of Obama's

Funny how so many of Obama's nominees are "radical" in their ideology-which is ironic with VP Biden who "borked" Bork for purely ideological reasons.

"civil rights do not apply to

"civil rights do not apply to people of all races"

Exactly Eric Holder's instructions to his Civil Rights division. His instructions were to only enforce the civil rights of minorities. Eric Holder is another of Obama's racist appointments.

If Mandela had Obama's mentality, South Africa would have been a blood bath.

Is there anyone on here, who

Is there anyone on here, who believes the people in this administration would object to giving Obama power, beyond 2016?

I know this is hypothetical, but what do you think would happen if Obama and his administration tried to circumvent the Constitution and remain in power? Who would be reponsible for stopping it? Would it be Congress that would order them removed? Would the military be called in? Would they respond? In this scenario, who would be in charge of ordering the military to take action? What if some of the military commanders were in on the coup??

Just an interesting thought, it could happen on any Presidents term and if time stands long enough, I bet it will. Not neccessarily under Obama. I'm just throwing it out there to see what other people believe.

Myfather, He will have power beyond 2016...

Myfather, He will have power beyond 2016 for decades as a result of the judicial appointments made for judges as well as career service personnel in the Justice Department. Furthermore, the hundreds of clones he has put in throughout the governmental positions from coast to coast will be there as well. This is one of the legacies for all presidents with the difference with Obama being he has not picked people for competency as has most presidents. He has picked them based on the following order: ideology, race, gender, nationality, and competence.

This man has been a socialist's, marxist's, statist's, communist's, progressive's, liberal's, collectivenist's, fascist's dream. They never could have imagine getting someone in as president who would be so open and effective in their pursuit of the degradation of America.
