If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck . . .

As most informed people know, on Monday, Sen. Pat Toomey and Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick held a news conference in Philadelphia. The news conference was held to express opposition to President Barack Obama's nomination of lawyer Debo Adegbile to serve as the U.S. Department of Justice's assistant attorney general for civil rights. Adegbile had done work with the NAACP on behalf of convicted Philadelphia cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jama.

In response, I have sent a letter to Congressmen Toomey and Fitzpatrick detailing the link between cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jama and Eric Holder.  In that letter, after I detail a factual connection between Abu-Jamal, Holder, Obama and Elizabeth Duke, I conclude as follows:
Plainly, there is an on-going effort by the Obama administration to advance a very radical agenda by appointing Debo Adegbile to the powerful office of civil rights.  Coupled with Obama’s above-described de facto pardon of Elizabeth Duke who was connected with Abu-Jama’s Philadelphia Black Panther party’s operations, I think the old adage “that if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck and looks like a duck it is a duck” is applicable here.  Something is rotten in Philadelphia and I possess information that I believe connects Abu-Jama with Barack Obama and Eric Holder through Elizabeth Duke.
As I am sure you recall, now-Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. repeatedly pushed some of his subordinates at the Clinton Justice Department to drop their opposition to a controversial 1999 grant of clemency to 16 members of two violent Puerto Rican nationalist organizations, FALN (the Spanish acronym for Armed Forces of National Liberation) and Los Macheteros. Those organizations had been involved in a bombing campaign in New York, Chicago and elsewhere in the 1970s and 1980s.  Not surprising, as, among other actions, Holder: (i) participated as a freshman at Columbia University in 1970 in a five-day “armed” occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with the university’s Black Students’ Organization and (ii) refused to prosecute the notorious 2008 New Black Panther voter intimidation case, in, of course, Philadelphia.
The questions these facts raise demand Congressional inquiry.  In particular:
1. Why is the Obama administration secretly and improperly dismissing charges against a domestic terrorist who bombed your own “house”;
2. Why is the judiciary so compliant – and indeed engaging in classic felonious cover-up behavior – to this soto voce plan of the Department of Justice to put radical anti-American persons and policies in place?
3. Why have my repeated requests to present evidence – and please note that I was the attorney for the so-called D.C. Madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey and am under a judicial gag order regarding information from her client records – to the grand jury for their consideration and, if warranted, investigation been blocked by Eric Holder and the Judiciary?
I am just asking.

Montgomery,

I hope this finds you well!

On the topic of Mumia's conviction --- I recommend this book: "The Framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal" --- Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Framing-Mumia-Abu-Jamal-Patrick-OConnor/dp/1556527446/

I think you'll use the term 'conviction' loosely if you read the book. Mumia did NOT receive a fair trial by any stretch of the imagination. The judicial bias was so obvious that the judge should have been thrown off the bench. The entire case is another travesty of the US criminal justice system.

Let's face it - if a defendant is actually guilty, no one needs to bend, stretch and break all the rules to obtain a conviction. We both know that's not how it was intended to work.

Best to you,

Vicky

I was a Philadelphia resident and followed the Jamal trial and its aftermath with care. The evidence against Jamal is so completely overwhelming that the assertion of judicial bias, ipse dixit, is irrelevant. Through the familiar tactics of the usual suspects a brutal murder, trial, conviction and sentencing metamorphosed into a social-racial-political struggle to free the oppressed from the oppressor. Philadelphia is particularly vulnerable to this type of crusade; the crime, a deliberate, pre-meditated murder, became virtually invisible, hidden under the cloak of social-racial politics. Judges caved. If all goes as planned, Jamal has an excellent chance of becoming mayor of Philadelpia.

I want to respond to both comments. I know from personal experience representing convicting people that there is a large component of the judicial system which produces a very wrong result. I have no opinion on the Jamal case as I don't know about the specifics.

What I found interesting was the intersection of Jamal and his Black Panthers with the dismissal of the Duke indictment 20 years later in n very unorthodox fashion by the Obama/Holder DOJ.
