You may remember J. Christian Adams, the brave man formerly in the Justice Department’s Voting Rights Section who blew the whistle on Attorney General Eric Holder’s policy that voting-rights violations by non-white minorities would not be prosecuted.
Since Adams resigned the Department in protest, he has continued to investigate and publicize dirty tricks in the Holder Justice Department, as well as advocate for election law reform and fair election law enforcement.
Adams’ latest story for the Washington Examiner gives a partial inventory of the radical left-wing activists hired by Holder who are now pushing their Marxist and/or Islamist agenda from within our government, funded by our tax dollars:
In December, the Justice Department filed a religious discrimination lawsuit against the Berkeley School District in Illinois. The school district had refused to allow a new teacher to take three weeks off during final exams so she could go on a pilgrimage to Mecca, an unreasonable demand far beyond what federal law requires.
The lead Justice Department lawyer on the case says a great deal about why this case was filed. The senior career trial attorney who signed the complaint, and therefore was in charge of the investigation, is Varda Hussain.
Hussain used to be a lawyer at the Venable law firm in Virginia. In 2006, she received the firm’s Benjamin R. Civiletti Pro Bono award for spending “over 500 hours in the past year fighting to bring due process to our clients.”
Who were the particular clients Hussain spent so much time helping? Three Egyptian terrorists held in Guantanamo Bay. Although when the Venable firm wrote its internal newsletter that reported on this award, it called them merely “Egyptian clients,” here’s what they are: terrorists.
That sort of euphemism for murderous thugs who want to destroy America is needed at a law firm that doesn’t want to upset its business clients about the work Hussain was doing to help America’s deadliest enemies get away with murder and mayhem. She received an award for the work no less!
…Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez hired Aaron Schuham from Americans United for Separation of Church and State, one of the most hostile organizations in the United States toward organized religion.
Founded as a rabidly anti-Catholic organization in 1947, the group has taken the lead in stopping public expressions of faith. Schuham’s new job in Holder’s Justice Department? Protecting religious liberty. Attorney hires like Schuham’s lead to reasonable questions about the administration’s motivation.
Who did Holder pick to head the unit inside civil rights to bring civil rights lawsuits against police departments and prisons? Why none other than Jonathan Smith, formerly of the Prisoners Legal Services Project and the D.C. Legal Aid Society, two anti-police and anti-prison guard antagonist groups. Hopefully America’s police unions will take note of Smith’s hiring when deciding presidential endorsements next year.
These attorneys are just the tip of the iceberg, but the DOJ is concealing the full scope of the problem. Pajamas Media submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the DOJ in the summer of 2010 seeking the resumes of all the new Obama hires inside the Civil Rights Division.
The Bush DOJ complied with an identical request from the Boston Globe after three weeks in 2007. Pajamas Media had to sue Holder in January, and the resumes still have not been provided. Phony transparency is worse than none at all.
