Department of Justice Assigns 5 Prosecutors to Retrial of Roger Clemens but None for Black Panthers
Made popular 401 days ago in
Our government needs to get out of the drug business. If baseball, football, and Olympic athletes want to use drugs, then let them. Since sports organizations are businesses, let them police their employees. If the NFL and MLB want to prohibit performance-enhancing drugs, it’s their business.
Last year, Roger Clemens was in court on a drug charge. Actually, he was in court because he appeared before a Congressional committee and swore under oath that he did not take steroids. It’s not about drugs anymore; it’s about perjury. But there wouldn’t have been a perjury charge if the government hadn’t gotten involved in the drug business. Whatever happened to the belief that a person should be able to do what he or she wants with his or her own body?
The Department of Justice is pursuing the Clemens’ case again after the first trial was stopped because prosecutors presented inadmissible evidence. This time the DOJ is putting five prosecutors on the case to make sure a retired baseball player can’t commit anymore crimes. Are they afraid that Clemens will stand outside polling stations during elections and throw baseballs at potential voters to keep them from voting for Barack Obama?
Eric Holder’s Department of Justice failed to make any arrests in the voter intimidation incident that happened on Election Day in 2008. Two members of the New Black Panther Party stood outside a polling station in Philadelphia. According to Deroy Murdock, they were “dressed in military-style black jackets, black berets and black combat boots. One of the men carried a two-foot-long night stick. ‘Cracker, you are about to be ruled by a black man,’ one of the New Black Panthers told a white voter. They taunted others as ‘white devils.’ A black couple who served as GOP poll watchers felt endangered when the Panthers called them ‘race traitors.’”
What did Holder’s DOJ do? Nothing. But Roger Clemens – that’s a different matter. He’s much more dangerous, so much so that the DOJ assigned five prosecutors to stop this hardened criminal.
Then there’s the George Zimmerman case. The following is from a Washington Times article:
On March 24, Mikhail Muhammad, leader of the New Black Panther Party, offered a $10,000 bounty for the “capture” of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed Trayvon Martin. The Panthers distributed wanted posters, calling him a “child killer” and offering the bounty “dead or alive.” Muhammad warned that Mr. Zimmerman “should be fearful for his life.”
These acts were almost certainly criminal. Florida Code 787.01 makes it a felony to threaten someone or abduct them with the intent to terrorize. Florida Code 777.04 further criminalizes solicitation which “commands, encourages, hires or requests another person” to engage in criminal activity such as kidnapping. Solicitation to kidnap is also a federal crime, and the fact that this was unambiguously racially-based brings it within the purview of federal hate-crime laws.
Eric Holder’s Department of Justice hasn’t lifted a finger to arrest these men. The reason is obvious. Roger Clemens is much more dangerous to our Republic.

Rather than uniting the country as promised in his campaign of 2008 has Obama been the head divider of classes and races in this Nation?
Yes, he has divided the country with his attacks on class and race.
No, he and his inept AG Eric Holder are just incompetent.
This is not a scientific survey,
