Justice Department announces plan to collect data on killings by police across the US - New York Times
Will The Left Apologize? The New York Times reports that the Justice Department is now drafting a legal memo "recommending no civil rights charges" against former Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. According to the Times, "The investigation by the FBI . . . found no evidence to support civil rights charges against the officer." So after months of investigations, with scores of FBI agents conducting hundreds of interviews, Obama's Justice Department has concluded that the Ferguson grand jury got it right after all. An entire left-wing movement was birthed by a lie. Ferguson was set ablaze and the nation traumatized over what the Justice Department concedes was a gross distortion. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and others were quick to rush to judgment, blaming America. Speaking before the United Nations in September, Barack Obama suggested that America had "failed to live up to our ideals." Conflating the fight against ISIS with Ferguson, Obama said, "In a summer marked by instability in the M ...
Overall, Barack Obama has done a commendable job. But one area in particular concerns me. In 2008 he campaigned to bring more transparency to government. Yet his administration has been one of the most secretive in modern history. In 2012, his Justice Department secretly seized the phone records of Associated Press reporters who disclosed details of an al-Qaeda terrorist plot originating in Yemen. It’s prosecuting New York Times reporter Jim Risen for not revealing a CIA source that leaked information to him. The White House fought the Senate Intelligence Committee’s decision to reveal the extent of U.S. torture. It invoked the state secrets privilege in a string of civil lawsuits brought on behalf of detainees who have been sent to third-world jails. Under Obama’s presidency, more U.S. officials have been charged with leaking secret information than any other modern president. Now, Justice Department lawyers are recommending felony charges against former General David Petraeus, alleging that he lea ...
The Justice Department has moved to exclude New York Times reporter James Risen as an “unavailable witness” at the trial of former CIA officer
NEW York Times." PROSECUTE TORTURERS AND AND THEIR BOSSES PEOPLE , YOU ARE THE ULTIMATE AUTHORITY, JUDGE AND JURY.LET'S GET IT DONE. In a blistering editorial published in the Monday edition of the New York Times, the editorial page editors are calling upon the Justice Department to open an investigation into the torture practices committed during the administration of President George W. Bush with an eye towards prosecuting those who “committed torture and other serious crimes,” along with former Vice President *** Cheney and other major administration officials. Under a headline reading, “Prosecute Torturers and Their Bosses,” the board criticizes the administration of current President Barack Obama for failing “to bring to justice anyone responsible for the torture of terrorism suspects,” during the period following the attack on 9/11.

NYC becomes heroin trade center with drug trafficking at two-decade high: According to a report by the New York Times, law enforcement has already confiscated 217 pounds of heroin throughout New York City in 2014, up sharply from 139 pounds over the same time frame last year. Considering the fact that 786 pounds total were seized in 2013 – the largest number in about Five Years – police are already on track to blow past last year’s figures. Since October, 35 percent of all the heroin collected by the Drug Enforcement Administration across the US has been in New York state. On Staten Island, where the city’s overdose rates are the highest, the amount of heroin removed off the street has jumped 61 percent compared to last year. “It’s cheap, it’s potent and there’s a user demand here right now and they’re flooding the market,” the DEA’s James J. Hunt said to the Times. “In my time, we’ve never seen the amount of large heroin seizures like this.” As detectives and special narcotics ...
Top 10 Obama Lies By: Human Events 7/23/2011 03:01 AM RESIZE: A A A Print 111 President Obama is becoming a veritable Pinocchio by stretching the truth on a regular basis. Here are the Top 10 Obama Lies. 1. Americans want higher taxes: During the debate over raising the debt ceiling, President Obama said that 80% of Americans support including higher taxes as part of the deal. But a Rasmussen poll taken the same week showed that only 34% believe a tax hike should be included in a debt-ceiling agreement. 2. Mother denied health insurance: During his presidential campaign, Obama said that his mother died of cancer after being denied coverage for a preexisting condition. He used her image in a campaign ad, repeated the claim in debates, and used the same rhetoric as President when he tried to sell ObamaCare to the American People. But a new book by New York Times reporter Janny Scott says that Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, had health insurance through her employer and was only denied disability insur ...
For those who don't know, John Ashcroft was the Attorney General of the United States during the Bush administration. He was the Attorney General during the time of my prosecution. While this in no way changes my own culpability or bad judgment calls I have made, don't we want a little more from our leaders? The article below is about Chris Christie: Secret No-Bid Contracts: When Christie was the top federal prosecutor in New Jersey in 2007 he awarded his former boss John Ashcroft, the one-time U.S. Attorney General, a contract worth $28 million to $52 million to monitor a corporation as part of an out-of-court settlement, the New York Times reported in a page-one story. The 2007 deal involved no public notice and no bidding, as well as $750,000 a month in pay for Ashcroft and two other executives. The same year Christie awarded two similar monitoring contracts to two other former Justice Department colleagues from the Bush administration and a former Republican New Jersey state Attorney General. Christi ...
authorities who suspect that the bank turned a blind eye to Madoff’s Ponzi scheme. That’s yet another headache in a week of migraines for Am erica’s largest bank; last Friday JPMorgan Chase reached a tentative $13 billion settlement with federal prosecutors for its alleged manipulation of mortgage securities, which helped trigger the Great Recession. There may be more pain to come as the megabank faces litigation on a number of fronts. And JPMorgan Chase is not alone – it is one of several banks being investigated by the government for mortgage fraud. While many headlines in the financial press accuse the government of conducting a witch hunt, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Gretchen Morgenson offers Bill a different perspective: “If the Justice Department were being tough on Wall Street they would be talking about bringing criminal cases against individuals who helped to perpetrate this immense crisis.” she said. Morgenson adds that the investigations into JPMorgan Chase show ...
Conservative Punishments Bush’s Top Ten Economic Errors By Lew Rockwell I’m offering what I regard as Bush’s top ten economic errors, which might be the very errors that will make the next depression far worse than it needs to be. Number Ten: Martha Stewart Jailing. This was just a disgrace. This great entrepreneur was guilty of nothing but being beloved, famous, and rich. When the Justice Department couldn’t get her for insider trading, of which she was not guilty under any conceivable definition, the government changed the charges to obstruction of justice, which really comes down to being willing to defend yourself. If you claim you are not guilty, you open yourself up to prosecution for being wrong. The real point of this case, I believe, was to put a great American entrepreneur in her place, and inspire fear and loathing across corporate America. This isn’t just my opinion. This was a point made by the New York Times, in the hope that her jailing would intimidate the whole of the American b ...
Why would he do this? If it is true. Ex-general targeted in leak probe By Greg Miller and Sari Horwitz The Washington Post Washington — A retired four-star Marine Corps general who served as the nation’s second-ranking military officer is a target of a Justice Department investigation into a leak of information about a covert U.S.-Israeli cyberattack on Iran’s nuclear program, a senior Obama Administration official said. Retired Gen. James E. *** Cartwright served as deputy chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and was part of President Barack Obama’s inner circle on a range of critical national security issues before he retired in 2011. The administration official said that Cartwright is suspected of revealing information about a highly classified effort to use a computer virus later dubbed Stuxnet to sabotage equipment in Iranian nuclear enrichment plants. Stuxnet was part of a broader cyber campaign called Olympic Games that was disclosed by the New York Times last year as one of the fir ...

Follow: The New York Times, Glenn Greenwald, Guardian NSA Leak, Ny Times Editorial Obama, Nytimes, Nytimes Editorial, Nytimes Editorial Board, Obama Nsa, Obama Verizon Phone Records, Obama-Nsa-Leak-Case, Media News . With Glenn Greenwald's bombshell scoop in The Guardian that the NSA collects phone data from millions of Verizon customers, the New York Times continued in its wave of criticism with an editorial saying the Obama "administration has now lost all credibility." See update below. The Times became one of the more influential voices to chide the Obama Administration for attacking press freedom following reports last month that the Justice Department secretly monitored the Associated Press and Fox News. Earlier this week, executive editor Jill Abramson appeared on CBS News' "Face the Nation" and said the Times feared "news gathering is being criminalized." She added, "The reporters who work for the Times in Washington have told me many of their sources are petrified even to return calls" in light . ...
Congress returns to work on Monday after the Memorial Day recess — yes, Congress took the whole week off — and the House and Senate appear to have different agendas. The Democratic-led Senate "plans to bring a sweeping immigration bill to the floor next Monday, with the goal of passage by July 4," says Jonathan Weisman in The New York Times. In the GOP-controlled House, meanwhile, Republicans "are setting their sights more firmly this week on the IRS," President Obama's Attorney General, and other political controversies: After weeks of trying to leaven the House's growing investigatory zeal with serious legislating, House leaders and committee chairmen appear to be giving themselves over to an expanding and aggressive oversight effort — on the IRS, the Justice Department's targeting of reporters, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.'s statements to Congress on that targeting and the Sept. 11 attack on the United States Mission in Benghazi, Libya. [New York Times] To get the week started, on Sunday R ...

Morning Rant: Oh, this is classic! Now, the Justice Department is allowing news organizations to print the contents of a meeting between Attorney General Eric Holder and some reporters of news organizations. As I posted before, the Attorney General has scheduled a series of meetings with the press to try and make nice-nice for his intrusion and seizure of records. However, many news organizations including ABC, Fox and the New York Times refused to participate in his charade because of restrictions he had placed on them for reporting what was discussed in those meetings. For those who did attend which included the Washington Post, Holder stated that the Justice Department would ALLOW the news outlets to say that it supports efforts to protect freedom of the press. The participants, however, reached an agreement with the Justice Department under which they could describe what occurred during the meeting in general terms. Excuse me? General Terms? We have censorship now? This is the United States of ...
Justice Department tries to force Google to hand over user data Secret lawsuit in Manhattan filed last month asks judge to force Google to cough up user data without a search warrant. A different court has already ruled that the process is unconstitutional. by Declan McCullagh May 31, 2013 9:21 AM PDT The Department of Justice has asked a Manhattan judge to grant its "petition to enforce" a warrantless legal demand the FBI sent Google. FBI Director Robert Mueller and Attorney General Eric Holder, right, in this file photograph. (Credit: Getty Images) A new lawsuit in Manhattan pitting the U.S. Department of Justice against Google offers a rare glimpse of how determined prosecutors are to defend a process that allows federal agents to gain warrantless access to user records, and how committed the Mountain View, Calif., company is to defending its customers' privacy rights against what it views as illegal requests. The Justice Department's lawsuit, filed April 22 and not disclosed until this article, was s ...
Thought you might find this interesting. GOOD AFTERNOON TO EVERYONE! Attorney General Eric Holder decided to conduct damage control over the Justice Department's media-spying scandals through a series of press briefings. In a darkly comical touch, these briefings were to be held off-the-record. Several prominent media organizations - including the Associated Press, the New York Times, and CNN - refused to attend these meetings unless they were held on the record. The AP was one of the organizations targeted by DOJ's controversial surveillance. Even more aggressively monitored was Fox News, whose reporter James Rosen was essentially accused of espionage. Fox News is one of the few organizations that has announced it will attend Holder's briefings. No word yet on whether their representative will be James Rosen, but we have our fingers crossed. The Obama Administration has a long history of fearing free speech, going all the way back to its early efforts at challenging the legitimacy of Fox News. All of the ...
THIS IS JUST MORE PROOF OF WRONG DOINGS & COVER UPS, COMMITTED BY THIS CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION & IT'S TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE BY DEMANDING CONGRESS START IMPEACHMENT & DEMAND THE RESIGNATIONS OF ALL TOP OFFICIALS THAT HAVE ABUSED THEIR OFFICES & COMMITTED CRIMES AGAINST AMERICA !!! The MSM REFUSES a request by the Attorney General for OFF-THE-RECORD meeting! A.G. Eric Holder is trying to have an "off-the-record" meeting with the mainstream press to "to discuss guidelines for handling investigations into leaks to the news media"... or perhaps to beg and plead for less exposure on his handling of the A/P and Fox News debacles at the Justice Department? This is all part of the Presidential directive of late last week for Eric Holder to investigate... Eric Holder. "A Justice Department official said Wednesday the sessions would be off the record to encourage a full exchange of ideas." WE give credit when credit is due as CNN, the New York Times, the Associated Press, Huffington Post and Fox have all told him NO. T ...

Jay Leno Time magazine found a picture of President Obama at his high school prom back in 1979. Let me tell you how long ago that was. Back then, Obama had to ask a girl for her phone number. He couldn’t illegally obtain it through the Justice Department. It is not looking good for President Obama. Today, his teleprompter took the Fifth. In fact, the White House has changed its slogan from “Yes, we can” to “No, I can’t remember.” The latest scandal in Washington, of course, is raising questions about the IRS. You know, I have a question. Why is it called the Internal Revenue Service? How is having your money confiscated a service? A Democratic congressman said that he worries that the IRS scandal might have a chilling effect on the IRS and that they might be afraid to audit people. So finally some good is coming out of all of this. White House officials continue to insist that President Obama knew nothing about the IRS scandal until we all heard about it in the news last week. They said becaus ...
Morning Rant: Why stop with the Associated Press? The latest revelation has the Eric Holder led Justice Department going after Fox News. What’s next” United Press International? Reuters? Let’s include some newspapers while they’re at it. The Washington Post, the New York Times? Oh excuse me, you won’t find them targeting the New York Times because that is a liberal newspaper that never criticizes Obama or the administration. Newly uncovered court documents show the Justice Department seized phone records associated with several Fox News lines as part of a leak investigation a revelation that comes as the White House Correspondents' Association spoke out against the administration's monitoring of reporters. Documents filed in October 2011 appear to show exchanges that match the specific locations of Fox News' White House, Pentagon, State Department and other operations. The last four digits of each of the phone numbers listed are redacted in the government filing so it is impossible to kn ...
You just have to do a happy little dance when these liberals start feeling stupid. It's easy to tell that President Obama is going through a scandal-ridden “tough time” since he's even under fire from Jon Stewart, host of “The Daily Show” on the Comedy Central cable channel, who said on Tuesday that the Democratic occupant of the White House “can't keep saying you found out about news at the same time as us!” The liberal comedian said he found it strange that the president didn't learn much sooner about the Internal Revenue Service persecuting groups with “Tea Party” or “Patriot” in their names and the Justice Department confiscating phone records about Associated Press reporters. Stewart's first salvo dealt with the fact that during his press conference on Monday with David Cameron, prime minister of the United Kingdom, Obama restricted questions from the press to a “limit of one, total, from the entire American press corps” in attendance. However, Julie Pace, White House correspo ...
US court charges al-Qaida spokesman on 9/11 crimes A senior al-Qaida leader and member of Osama bin Laden's inner circle was charged Thursday with conspiring to kill Americans in his role as the terror network's top propagandist who lauded the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 _ and warned there would be more. Officials said Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, who was born in Kuwait and was bin Laden's son-in-law, was captured in Jordan over the last week. He will appear Friday in U.S. federal court in New York, according to a Justice Department statement and indictment outlining the accusations against Abu Ghaith. "No amount of distance or time will weaken our resolve to bring America's enemies to justice," Attorney General Eric Holder said in the statement. "To... ~HMO
Interview: CNN disowns US lobbying firm, raising questions about Jonathan’s $40,000 payment Cable News Network, CNN, has denied being paid, or contacted by American lobbying firm, Fleishman-Hillard, for a 2010 interview with President Goodluck Jonathan, contradicting the firm’s claim that it contacted CNN, and other media for a string of interviews. Fleishman-Hillard, contracted through a Nigerian consultant to the presidency, Caser’s group, was to receive $58,200 to pitch interviews with advocacy groups, and major media outlets including Reuters, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN and Bloomberg. In its filings to the US Justice Department, the company claimed that while it reached the media organizations, it only succeeded in securing a CNN interview for the president. It added that its fee was lowered by $20,000 after the rest of the interviews were rescheduled. CNN has however denied arranging its interviews through agencies, specifically denying receiving contacts, or funds, from Fleishman ...
Oh, The United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (or FISC) is a U.S. federal court. It was established by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA). The FISC oversees requests for surveillance warrants against suspected foreign intelligence agents inside the United States by federal law enforcement agencies (primarily the F.B.I.). The FISA and FISC were inspired by the recommendations of the Church Committee. ... On May 17, 2002, the court rebuffed then-Attorney General John Ashcroft, releasing an opinion that alleged that FBI and Justice Department officials had "supplied erroneous information to the court in more than 75 applications for search warrants and wiretaps, including one signed by then-FBI Director Louis J. Freeh". Whether this rebuke is related to the court starting to require modification of drastically more requests in 2003 is unknown. ... On December 16, 2005, the New York Times reported that the Bush administration had been conducting surveillance against U.S. ...
Washington State’s Hazy Mess: Marijuana And The Feds Senior White House and Justice Department officials are now holding meetings to determine how federal law should react to these new state laws.According to the New York Times, the Obama Administration has a few options they’re considering in handling this matter. The Federal Government could sue Washington and other pot-friendly states for attempting to bypass federal law. If the justice department succeeds in this, they could remove the new laws under the assumption that voters wouldn't have approved this new measure if there were stricter regulations in place. The Federal Government could also hold their grants for ransom until these states return to the old laws.
The New York Times has sued the Obama Administration over the Justice Department's denial of a Freedom of Information Act request from the paper that sought an explanation of the federal government's interpretation of a part of the Patriot Act. In May, two members of the Senate Intelligence Committe...
This is from the New York Times about the new marijuana law in Washington and Colorado. But as Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado cautioned voters on Tuesday night: “Don’t break out the Cheetos or the Goldfish too quickly.” For one thing, it will be a month before the measures are officially on the books, and longer still before state officials write the rules, tax codes and other regulations creating new state-licensed retail marijuana shops. But the larger, looming problem is a clash with the federal government, which still views marijuana as a Schedule I prohibited substance and has cracked down on states, like California and Montana, that have voted to allow medical marijuana. In a statement on Wednesday, a spokesman for the Drug Enforcement Agency said the Justice Department was reviewing the ballot measures and declined to comment directly on how officials would respond to them. But he said the agency’s enforcement of federal drug laws “remains unchanged.” The United States attorneys in ...
The announcement last month that the Justice Department wouldn't be prosecuting Goldman Sachs over allegations surrounding the financial crisis was a sad reminder that the Obama Administration has largely let banks off the hook for their role in the meltdown. And regulators and officials may be running out of time; the statute of limitations for crimes related to the financial crisis is fast approaching, according to The New York Times. Despite Obama's empty promises to crack down on Wall Street, federal prosecution of financial fraud hit a 20 year LOW in 2011.
On Wednesday, September 12th, the House of Representatives voted 301-118 to extend the 2008 amendments to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) for another Five Years, despite continuing secrecy, unanswered questions, and concerns from across the political spectrum about its sweeping invasions of privacy. When originally passed, FISA was meant to curtail the federal government’s surveillance practices. Over the years, provisions for dragnet surveillance have been expanded, particularly since 2002. During the Bush administration, the National Security Agency began a warrantless wiretapping scheme hatched in secret, and in such clear violation of FISA that Attorney General John Ashcroft refused to authorize it and Justice Department officials threatened to resign en masse. When the program was first revealed to the public in 2005, by New York Times journalists who risked prosecution to reveal state secrets, it caused an earthquake in Washington. However, in 2008, Congress amended FISA to essent ...
Stellar Wind is the open secret code name for certain information collection activities performed by the United States' National Security Agency and revealed by Thomas M. Tamm to New York Times reporters James Risen and Eric Lichtblau.The operation was approved by President George W. Bush shortly after the September 11 attacks in 2001. The program's activities involve data mining of a large database of the communications of American citizens, including e-mail communications, phone conversations, financial transactions, and Internet activity. There were internal disputes within the Justice Department about the legality of the program, because data is collected for large numbers of people, not just the subjects of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants.In March 2004, the Justice Department under Attorney General John Ashcroft ruled that the program was illegal. The day after the ruling, Ashcroft became critically ill with acute pancreatitis. President Bush sent White House counsel Alberto Gon ...
Just a bit of political reality by Charles Blow of the NY Times. Shady money, voter suppression, shifting positions, murky details and widespread apathy. If there is a road map for a Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan win in November, that’s it. Distasteful all. As The New York Times reported this week, Paul Ryan made the trip on Tuesday to kiss the ring of Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire casino owner who has pledged to spend as much as $100 million to defeat President Obama. No reporters were allowed in, of course. As The Times’s editorial page pointed out on Friday: “Last year, his company, the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, announced that it was under investigation by the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission for possible violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act — specifically, that it bribed Chinese officials for help in expanding its casino empire in Macau. Later, the F.B.I. became involved, and even Chinese regulators looked askance at the company’s conduct, fining it $1.6 ...

The Texas voter identity requirement currently before the courts is a solution in search of a problem. It is also just another case of those in power seeking to extend their power. How many cases of voter fraud has the Texas Attorney General prosecuted in the past decade? How many Texans have actually been convicted of voter fraud? In an April 12, 2007 article, the New York Times reported that "Five Years after the Bush administration began a crackdown on voter fraud, the Justice Department has turned up virtually no evidence of any organized effort to skew federal elections, according to court records and interviews. Most of those charged have been Democrats, voting records show. Many of those charged by the Justice Department appear to have mistakenly filled out registration forms or misunderstood eligibility rules, a review of court records and interviews with prosecutors and defense lawyers show."

When the law doesn't uphold the law – Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com There is a contentious battle taking place between the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the White House over whether the Administration should give up information that could implicate it in the Justice Department's gun running scheme that resulted in the murder of a Federal Agent. The man who occupies the Oval Office has invoked Executive Privilege to keep from the Committee what Chairman Darrell Issa says is "information the committee needs to complete its work." The Oversight Committee voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for stonewalling its investigation where the Administration knowingly supplied Mexican drug dealers with weapons. The New York Times reports, "The president's move to invoke Executive Privilege was the first time that he had asserted his secrecy powers in response to a Congressional inquiry. It elevated a fight over whether Mr. Holder must turn over additional docum ...
Can't understand how Eric Holder is still around. The US Justice Department right now is taking it on the chin between Fast and Furious and the leaks to the New York Times. The longer he is around the worse it gets for Obama.
1) Afghan president Karzai said the US failed to consult Afghan forces when it called in an airstrike that killed 18 civilians, and warned that his government will consider such actions in the future to be in violation of the country's pact with Washington, AP reports. The incident occurred during a night raid. Karzai has long objected to such raids, saying they put civilians at risk of injury or death. The U.S. and Afghanistan signed an agreement in April that put the Afghan government in charge of most such "special operations." 2) The senior allied commander in Afghanistan has ordered new restrictions on airstrikes against Taliban fighters who hide in residential homes, the New York Times reports. Aides to Karzai released a statement saying that General Allen had pledged to halt attacks altogether on residential areas and homes. But US officials said General Allen's order did not go that far and NATO would continue to conduct operations against insurgents who use civilian dwellings for shelter. "When t ...

Via Schwartzreport & The New York Times 05-24-12 T h e R i g h t t o R e c o r d This is a very big deal. Had this decision gone the other way, citizens would be precluded from recording the excesses of the increasingly over-reaching militarized police in this country. The Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department took an important stand last week, declaring that citizens have a First Amendment right to videotape the actions of police officers in public places and that seizure or destruction of such recordings violates constitutional rights. The Justice Department made the statement in a federal lawsuit brought against the Baltimore Police Department by Christopher Sharp, who used his cellphone to take video of the police arresting and beating a friend at Pimlico on the day of the 2010 Preakness. The officers took Mr. Sharp’s cellphone while he was recording and wiped the phone clean of all videos before returning it to him. The Courts of Appeals for the First and Seventh Circuits have wisely ...

President Obama has launched an all-out effort to advance his agenda WITHOUT any need of Congress or any other government accountability. According to the New York Times... Branding its unilateral efforts "We Can't Wait,” a slogan that aides said Mr. Obama coined at that strategy meeting, the White House has rolled out dozens of new policies ...
