In this investigation and in all cases we will examine the facts and the law.
If we find evidence of a potential federal criminal civil rights crime.
We will take appropriate action.
And it every step the facts and the law will guide us forward.
That was attorney general Eric -- the promising to take action -- his department finds a George Zimmerman broke any federal laws when he shot trade on Martin.
And now as we continue to -- the president and his top advisors.
It's important to note that not once in that press conference was -- mention made about the bounty that the new Black Panther Party has put out on Zimmerman said.
Now look at this poster that is being distributed as George Zimmermann wanted dead or alive.
And if that's not enough evidence well there's countless statements made by the black Panthers and citing a race war.
And we played them on the show now for a number of weeks so why -- -- -- -- not investigating the new Black Panther Party.
Well let's not really -- surprise considering he refused to investigate charges of voter intimidation.
Against the group back in 2008 here with reaction a much more Fox News contributor.
And the author of the number one New York Times best seller culture of corruption Michelle Malkin is back Michelle thanks for -- -- on the program.
Look I would say in any case but do you think that this statement in particular was made at a political pressure.
And why do you think he would ignore a bounty being put out -- -- dead or alive.
In this case considering you know the volatility now the situation down in Sanford Florida.
I think you have to look at Eric holder's record and his history and his legacy as a government official.
At the Department of Justice under the Clinton administration and now after four years in the Obama administration.
Has been one of turning the department of justice and to the department of social justice.
I'm just supposed -- supposed to be blind but he looks at it with one left I hope and and I think -- assurances that he gives America aren't worth very much to people -- who have seen him -- -- The rule -- block time and again by putting politics and ideology.
Above the facts and the law that he says he supports it.
And one of the things are doing as well -- step by step appointment by appointment in terms of who the president.
Has put in in these high positions -- -- the attorney general is a powerful.
Now let's listen to the the attorney general talking about the issue of race.
And saying that basically in many ways we're a nation of cowards if you remember this from mark.
-- this nation has proudly thought of itself as a ethnic melting pot.
In things racial we have always been and we I believe continue to be in too many ways essentially a nation.
-- -- -- what are we glean from that when the attorney general expresses that view with all the power that comes with that position videos.
Well I I think we're dealing with somebody who has always been to make it really.
A radical leftist and his ideology and his application.
Of the -- selectively.
If you take a look at at the states that he is demonized.
States that have tried to enact.
Voter ID laws to ensure election integrity.
He's gone after.
State officials across this country who believe that we need to have greater immigration enforcement.
And he -- demonized the large majority of Americans.
I'm who believe that we shouldn't.
Seen the loss through the prism of racial identity this is somebody who used the phrase my people.
-- which was code word and if you.
I ask who are Eric -- people well it's kind of people they -- -- with today race hustlers like Al Sharpton who have hosted other race.
Hustlers like the new black Panthers party which as you mentioned I've got special dispensation from this justices are.
Based on that comment about being a nation of cowards let's put this together with -- -- he's he's looking into civil rights -- potential civil rights violations of George Zimmermann.
But then -- the about the new Black Panther Party and let's play that tape and this is just one of many this is this the most recent comments by the new Black Panther Party.
And then we got asked a question.
Why not look for civil rights violations here when there's a bounty on the head of of an individual.
Who's not been proven guilty yet been indicted not proven guilty but here's the take.
They got to -- to climb back he's got your region you know it's got to reach a point to where it pours over -- when you have a blog on our regulations in order for it to heal this stuff and got to -- mobile.
And all of you -- talked about there happens to be blood -- in all -- revolution true revolution remains a serious ordered.
But not in the steel would have to -- doing it -- she's gonna have to talks.
-- -- -- She got a dark thought I was talking about some see is some Middle Eastern part of the world -- -- -- we're talking about some brotherhood.
Right so he started it into would you connect -- to remarks about them very different times but -- does it reveal.
A mind set -- at all and it's just a question.
Yes yes yes -- -- I think it's worth asking that question how would you want to talk about racial cowardice these questions need to be asked.
And it's -- it is considered -- now to ask these questions because.
I'm just by asking -- being met with an onslaught of accusations of being a racist or a white supremacists look let me step back for seconds I wanna make it very clear.
That what happened in Florida was a tragedy anybody who was apparent steals for the parents.
Of course it bond market I really -- of course they do and it -- Just to be -- all the other handy overreaction the demagoguery can be irresponsible incitement to violence and the silence on the part of this White House to give a damn.
This all of the outpouring of and then punches -- that's happening in the front.
Judgment in the media -- his judgment and congressional rush to judgment and activists rushed to judgment.
And declarative statements hunted down like a rabid dog -- because he was black without any evidence to corroborate this.
Which will hopefully come -- and in a trial if in fact it can be proven -- one last thing because we're we're -- the president.
Interest -- on the issue of KSM.
But surely Erik -- the before and his shifting in position and what it says.
Toss about him on this.
Those allegedly responsible for the attacks of September the eleventh will finally face justice.
They will be brought to -- New York to New York.
To answer for their alleged crimes in a courthouse just blocks away from where the Twin Towers once stood.
Certainly since I made that decision.
Members of congress have intervened.
And -- -- restrictions.
Blocking the administration from bringing any Guantanamo detainees to trial in the United States regardless.
Of the venue.
Reaction -- I would say it read page 18118.
To 126 of culture of corruption.
I presaged all of the the next that we've seen.
With Eric holder's botching.
About the handling of these get my terrorists and it all has to do with the conflict adventurous of his former law firm where he was a senior partner Covington and Burlington.
Which of course represented many of the -- Gitmo detainees and putt again.
Politics and corporate interests above the national security and what Americans want in terms of justice for nine -- How we're gonna go back to the issue of are we haven't even touched on pardons of Marc Rich in the FA -- and lot -- that want a lot more betting on the president's choice for attorney general.
And Michelle always good to see thank you for being -- You then take.
