Right to Marry Star Missed by Fox News?

When the town council in Fort Myers Beach, Florida recently fired its city manager, Scott Janke, after finding out he had married a “porn star,” although the coverage on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” was extensive enough to include one of their own infamous erotic montages, the legal analysis from lawyers Megyn Kelly and Lis Wiehl seemed to be missing mention of an important constitutional right as I show in this video.

The recent clips from the Fox News program “The O’Reilly Factor” were taken from a segment broadcast on July 28, 2009, that you can find online at http://www.foxnews.com/video/index.html?playerId=videolandingpage&streamingFormat=FLASH&referralObject=7486882

The clip of Megyn Kelly from last years’ Fox News program “The O’Reilly Factor” was broadcast on May 15, 2008, and is part of my video titled “Fox News Spins Gay Marriage Ruling in O’Reilly No Spin Zone?” that you can find on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riGXuhwLYVI

It wasn’t quite a “no spin zone” when Bill O’Reilly brought Megyn Kelly on to the May 15, 2008, edition of Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” as the legal expert to analyze that day’s California Supreme Court decision in favor of marriage equality as I show with the clips and commentary in this video.

Eric Holder Drops Charges on Black Panthers for Voter Intimidation – Bill O’Reilly Reports

Attorney General Eric Holder, I believe for political reasons, has dropped all charges relating to the Black Panthers voter intimidation in last falls Presidential election. Why would he drop such an open and shut case? The Black panthers never even showed up to defend themselves. There was no way that the government was going to lose this case, unless of course they were to drop all charges, which is what they did, but why?

I believe that Obama and Eric Holder didn’t want to alienate their core voters by going after the “New” Black Panthers. And sense they knew that the mainstream news media is in their back pocket, and therefore would not report on it, they just dropped the charges, why would they not? You might think that they would care about equal protection under the law, and just the rule of law in general, but it is apparent that they do not. It is obvious to me that they couldn’t give a flying flip about the rule of law; they do as they please.

If you think about it, the underlying reason that this was not prosecuted is because it was a case where white people were intimidated to vote a certain way, or to not vote at all. I’m not sure if you have noticed it or not, but the “progressives” are not concerned in the least about protecting the rights of anyone who is white; they could care less. They do not apply the law equally, but instead they use it to their advantage in order to further their political goals, one of which is to dismantle the power structure in this country as it now exists.

It looks like Eric Holder is as much of a fraud as Barack Obama is; they are like two peas in a pod, they compliment each other perfectly. They should have great success over the next four years unraveling our Republics core legal principles; of this I have no doubt.

Dept. Of Justice Drops New Black Panthers Case

Sources told The Bulletin that there is internal dissension in the Department of Justice (DOJ) about a voter intimidation case from last years presidential election. Obama appointees did not want to proceed with the case, while the career prosecutors did. The incident occurred in Philadelphia and involved the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPPSD).

The DOJ filed a lawsuit under the Voting Rights Act against the NBPPSD and three of its members alleging the defendants intimidated Philadelphia voters during the Nov. 4, 2008 general election. The action was filed in January before President George W. Bush left office.

The complaint, filed in the United States District Court in Philadelphia, alleged that on Election Day, Nov. 4, 2008 in Philadelphia, NBPPSD members Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson were stationed at the entrance to a polling location at 1221 Fairmount Avenue, wearing the uniform of the organization. It also states Mr. Shabazz repeatedly brandished a police-style baton weapon.

The complaint said NBPPSD Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz confirmed that the placement of Messrs. Shabazz and Jackson was part of a nationwide effort to deploy NBPPSD members at polling locations on Election Day. The Justice Department sought an injunction to prevent any similar future actions by NBPPSD members at polling locations.
Intimidation outside of a polling place is contrary to the democratic process, said Acting Assistant Attorney General Grace Chung Becker at the time. The Department takes allegations of voter intimidation seriously.

None of the defendants responded to the lawsuit. Instead of immediately filing for a default judgment as is the normal procedure, sources told The Bulletin the DOJ asked for and received an order from the court providing an extension of time to file. Specifically, they asked the court to give them until May 15.

But on May 15, DOJ changed its mind again. Rather than a default judgment, the DOJ filed a notice of voluntary dismissal of the lawsuit for two of the defendants. This included Mr. Jackson, who identified himself to police as a member of the Democratic Committee in the 14th Ward. He also produced credentials to that effect.

It is absolutely unprecedented for the Justice Department to dismiss a lawsuit after the defendants failed to answer the suit and are thus in default,” he said.

Mr. von Spakovsky said that the NBPPSD’s lack of response was the legal equivalent of an admission of all theallegations made about the defendants organized effort to threaten and intimidate voters.

“And dismissing an individual who was a local Democratic party official who defaulted by not answering the complaint smacks of the worst sort of political partisanship,” he said. “It is completely contrary to all of the promises that Eric Holder made when he was confirmed to be Attorney General…..

FOX News: “Fair and balanced” because they say so!

A brief but shocking compilation from the documentary:
“OUTFOXED: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism”
http://www.outfoxed.org/

As Rupert Murdoch’s ‘war on journalism’ hits new lows, droves of disgruntled employees are confessing their many misdeeds, brought upon by the Soviet-Union-esque environment they faced at FOX News. Watch how FOX executives dictate their bias by forcing reporters to follow memos that predetermine what they can say and how they should say it.

Rupert Murdoch has decided that the best approach to journalism is to parade opinions dressed-up as News. The reason is simple: No one can disprove an opinion, and therefore, credibility is easier to maintain. Should they ever be caught lying, the legal process affords them protection under the First Amendment. We also have Congress to thank for the bright idea of passing a rider Bill (hidden) to deregulate the News Media.

That’s right; Corporate News entities can tell lies and distort the news as they please, and it’s all perfectly legal.

To the best of my knowledge, no country can have or maintain democracy without an honest Press or, at least, one that can be held accountable. But where is ours?
