Liz Cheney and 'the DOJ 19' ~ By Ellis Washington

Ellis tells about Liz Cheney's ad, from, and why the "DOJ 19" liberals and RINOs are criticizing her for using the phrase, "The al-Qaida 7."
The Obama administration is seemingly hell-bent on "fundamentally transforming America" as the president has stated on many occasions. One way to achieve his socialist revolution is by deconstructing all of America's fundamental institutions. Giving constitutional rights to avowed Muslim terrorists is merely a means to Obama's diabolical ends to purposely destabilize American society, thus setting the pretext to eventually create a one-party oligarchy.

Remember the words of chief of staff Rahm Emmanuel, which were repeated by both Obama and Hillary Clinton: You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.

Truth is the best defense.
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick Cheney, Bush-43's VP, is an unapologetic conservative and cofounder of the advocacy group "Keep America Safe." She has created a recent controversy with liberals and RINOs across America who are feigning outrage at an ad Liz Cheney's organization aired that used the phrase "The al-Qaida 7" – an unflattering epithet implying that seven of the nine Department of Justice lawyers recently appointed by Attorney General Eric Holder have ties to the defense of known Muslim terrorists.

The central question regarding the al-Qaida 7 is not whether it is permissible or even expedient for DOJ lawyers to represent the obviously guilty, because under our system of laws, criminals are entitled to counsel, but why did they do it? If they were motivated by empathy for the terrorists, then Liz Cheney is right for stating this fact. However, if they are strict constitutionalists and desire protection of our constitutional principles and were motivated by legal principle, then Cheney is wrong.

In response to Liz Cheney's attacks against the al-Qaida 7 earlier this week, a group of 19 former top officials of the Bush Justice Department signed a declaration defending DOJ policy, including: Larry Thompson (deputy attorney general, Bush-43), Peter Keisler (acting attorney general, Bush-41), Matthew Waxman, Charles "Cully" Stimson (deputy assistant secretary of defense, Bush-43), Brandford Berenson and Daniel Dell'Orto (White House counsel, Bush-41).

Other DOJ sympathizers included John Bellinger III, a former legal adviser to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and currently a partner at the law firm of Arnold and Porter, who said regarding Liz Cheney's criticism of DOJ: "We've had a long-standing tradition in our country for lawyers to represent unpopular causes, and they shouldn't be attacked for doing so." Ken Starr, current dean of Pepperdine Law School, former solicitor general and special prosecutor during the infamous Clinton-Lewinsky sexual harassment scandal of the 1990s, said: "You do not impute the causes of the client to the lawyer who is called upon to make sure that that client's rights are being protected."

Really, Dean Starr? Where is that idea found in the Constitution?

Their GOP credentials notwithstanding, it appears that these lawyers, who I'll call "the DOJ 19" all signed that document defending Holder and seem to hold a biased view against America's original intent of the constitutional framers founded in natural-law jurisprudence. Instead these careerists are zealously defending existential DOJ bureaucracy, centralized big government and the rights of the guilty above the rights of the innocent.

The DOJ 19 defend terrorist-sympathizer Eric Holder and the al-Qaida 7, who have time to do pro bono work for Muslim terrorists – but how much time have they given to defend vilified American heroes like: Michael McCabe, Julio Huertas and Jonathan Keefe who caught Ahmed Hashim Abed, plotter of the murder of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah, Iraq, in 2004? The bodies of the four Americans were burned and hanged from a bridge while Iraqis cheered on in jubilation.

The Liz Cheney controversy brings up deeper constitutional issues of natural law, original intent and the personal guarantees the constitutional framers codified in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
