Black Panther Blowback: Kirsanow ‘This Is Just The Beginning. . .Of The Investigation’

The Democrats attempted a controlled burn using Steven Colbert, yet were slightly scorched around 2:35 in the clip, when he alluded to the election.
I think that Steven Colbert is funny, but you just can’t make nuclear power jokes at Three Mile Island. No amount of timing and material can overcome an inappropriate location. You don’t even get a “good try”, Steven. All you do is underscore the pathetic, anti-American nature of the 2008 Leftist takeover.
PJTV, via Insty, has some must-see video of Peter Kirsanow of the US Commission on Civil Rights after today’s Coates testimony, which was a fuel air explosive atop the Colbert testimony. Commissioner Peter Kirsanow at 1:08, is

I think that this is just the beginning, actually, of the investigation. We have a Catch-22, because the Department of Justice enforces our subpoenas. We are investigating the Department of Justice. They have been stonewalling us for a year and a half, and so the amount of information that we have been able to get–it’s been propitious that we have gotten some amount of information, but it’s been extremely difficult to get it. Congress, on the other hand, may have other avenues to get the information to explore this further.

Hans von Spakovsky comes on at 5:55 and brings more napalm to the show. The fact that eight states have questionable voter rolls, and the DoJ appears careless on the point, is completely, utterly devastating.
J. Christian Adams comes on at 17:52, and doesn’t pat himself on the back, and then the discussion turns to the Civil Rights Division’s ideologically-driven hostility to equal enforcement under the law.
Bill O’Reilly, via Susannah, concisely reviews the case and goes directly after Attorney General Eric Holder:
Andrew Breitbart, has one of those befuddled Columbo moments regarding the Malik Shabazz, a New Black Panther Party fellow leader who quite interestingly shows up on the White House guest list. Having a commonplace surname like Smith, I can readily relate to the confusion over names like Shabazz, which seem to crop up everywhere in the news these days.
Cutting right to the chase:

  • Does the GOP go to the mat on this scandal?
  • Is this the Obama Watergate?
  • How soon does Eric Holder resign?

    Hey, check this out on Verum Serum.

    Excerpt from Christopher Coates testimony:

    “During the time that I was Chief, no approval was given to this project, and my understanding that approval has never been given for that Section 8 list maintenance project to date. That means that we have entered the 2010 election cycle with eight states appearing to be in major noncompliance with the list maintenance requirements of Section 8 of the NVRA, and yet the Voting Section which has the responsibility to enforce that law has yet to take any action.”

    I don’t think that this will force Holder to resign, but the assistant ag Hernandez has been directly linked. Also, Loretta King needs to be fired. I have been following this closely. King must go and go now.

    Spam all ye want, Holder is a dirty racist and the DOJ is too corrupted by his presence to do its job.

    Republicans with subpoena power . . . they never expected that.

    They really thought they could get away with anything, thanks to Pelosi and Reid.

    “Holder is a dirty racist ”
    Ahhh, exactly what this Black Panther meme wants you to believe.
    This is race baiting at it’s finest. When the Bush administration dismissed several voter intimidation cases where the accused where caucasian, none of you batted an eyelash. Why? Perhaps because this did not pose a threat to your ideas of American power structures.
    See, this isn’t about Holder. This is about the misperception that a very old paranoid narrative is playing itself out: the Black man’s revenge! Scary!
    And this plays well with those who harbor a silly but real fear of a Black president seeking retribution, or “reparations” as some dog whistlers like to say.
    So, no uproar when voter intimidation involves some white hillbillies in pick up trucks, but it’s damn near the end of Western civilization when two buffoons dressed in Black Panther costume stand outside a polling station.

    While I understand that the sight of a couple of black guys wearing berets is enough to scare the daylights out of most of you it does not make for voter intimidation as you would like to define it. Or better put re-define it.
    You guys have a steep hill to climb on this one.
    Unless the faux rage is simply meant to insinuate what
    one tea-partier succinctly put on a sign:
    “Obama’s Plan- White Slavery”

    Hell, that line of thinking was used against Lincoln in 1860.
    The things Conservatives seek to “conserve” is astounding….

    We all need to become poll watchers and take concealed video and audio equipment (streaming if possible) to the process. The fraud must be documented.

    Yeah, right. Don’t bother with links.

    Look, to save time, anything that may have happened or not happened in 2004 has no bearing on how the Justice Department is conducting itself in 2010. Wistful thoughts over a hanging chad, and your disappointment that John F’ing Kerry didn’t get his chance to report for duty is all just so much pissing in the wind. Try to do that when I’m not around.

    Meanwhile, attend to the question at hand. If Justice Department is instructing its officers to ignore congressional subpoena’s, then things are seriously off kilter in the Obama DoJ, whether you have the ability to recognize it or not.

    As to black panthers showing up at polling stations in fatigues and brandishing weapons, what do they think they were doing there? Have they been standing at that street corner since? Just on election day? Why was that?

    It wasn’t an accident, no matter how stupid you intend to make yourself. If you ask them, and I encourage you to do so come November, you will find they are not there to ensure that little old white ladies get across the street to the polling station okay.
