Obama back to Hannity never appears that Obama just doesn't like to make things easy on himself -- he thought Chuck Hagel and John Brennan -- controversial nominees.
Wait until you hear who the president is reportedly looking -- to be the next labor secretary.
It's -- -- Bobble -- assistant attorney general Thomas.
And just like his past makes this one is filled with controversy.
Pat -- currently oversees the civil rights division at the Justice Department.
And under his leadership the DOJ challenge state voter ID laws in Texas and South Carolina.
Now opponents of the law say it restricts minority voting but that's at all.
We're also learning that a new report released this week by the department's inspector general slams for -- for misleading the US Commission on Civil Rights.
About the lawsuit against the new Black Panther Party.
From back in 2008.
Joining me now to expose more on this possible pick.
Is syndicated columnist author Michelle Malkin Michelle welcome back.
Thanks frantic action on -- why should the president not go for the most controversial radical people but because they keep getting through.
So I would expect.
-- his see his ideologues.
-- Ideological -- Yeah this is completely expected of course and I think the ball is now in the court of the Republican Party to expose just how radical.
This assistant attorney general -- tonight reported extensively on Tom -- -- history.
-- -- -- And them I think most troubling for my perspective.
His long time -- -- -- advocacy.
Not of American workers but of illegal alien workers.
This is somebody who cut his teeth that kotsay didn't Maryland.
Which is one of the most activist open border groups in the country.
It's funded by government.
Millions of dollars from the state of Maryland and local governments.
As well as the radical left wing billionaire George Soros is group the open society and about what you didn't -- five million dollars in government grants.
They sure -- five million from the government.
Untold millions more from open society institute and left wing progressive outfits like it.
My favorite a million dollars from the late.
Going didn't hearted.
Dog Hugo Chavez's sic ago believe it or not -- I'm so into this this is the money that's fueled this man.
And he has dedicated his career to expanding illegal alien benefits everything from.
Illegal alien college tuition discounts.
And casa -- Maryland really can claim credit for the kind of DREAM Act referrals and deportation waivers that are now policy.
Enacted by executive Fiat by the Obama administration.
Things like driver's licenses for illegal aliens -- and blocking.
Local state and federal cooperation.
Immigration enforcement and databases which I think is is key when you're talking about national security issues -- -- you mentioned all of the Labor Department all of the all of the stuff that that came out in this inspector general's report about all of the monkey around any unethical behavior.
By Tom Perez while he was an AG under the Obama administration's DO.
Why don't go over the inspector general's report and what they're basically saying that misleading the commission on civil rights.
About the loss and -- relates to the new Black Panther Party back in 2008.
Then though those with a guy standing outside the polling place in Philly.
-- and -- batons and wearing military gear as we have putting up on the screen here.
When he explained that.
Yes just to set the context remember that these dogs were -- -- thing.
Not only -- people or her voting at that Philadelphia precinct in the fall of 2008.
But also -- -- sing and I hurling.
Poisonous racial epithets and demagoguery of people who are trying to monitor.
The voting Booth there and it was thanks to brave whistle blowers within the DOJ.
Thompson and the monkey -- rounds.
By many of these appointees the politicization.
Of -- the decision to drop this case even though under the Bush Administration.
They had agreed that that these people were culpable -- violating spreading rights law.
But he also -- pit -- of the subpoenas this is the important thing is -- -- thinking the position that he has he has above an obligation.
To do what is asked of him and especially considering the position that he's in a DOJ.
Yes that's right instead of ensuring and protecting justice.
This guy was obstructing and -- in addition to refusing to honor the subpoena -- of course there was.
A lot of the wording in that the federal judge's decision.
That he had blatantly misled the US commission on civil rights and I think that the report that came out as a result of representative -- Requests here also underscores all of that.
I think that that the phrase with polarization.
And mistrust and and and that sense.
This is somebody who has deliberately selected really enforced the law in not in and a racially not to neutral way.
And all of that is dangerous and has implications for putting him in a position to be head of the Department of Labor.
-- but considering we have Brendan is get the gotten through -- gotten through any chances can be stopped them from your perspective.
Well it -- a lot of grassroots conservatives and people who are very familiar with Tom -- is.
Our record have been doing everything they can't do -- -- that's why I wrote my column on which didn't find it Michelle -- dot com.
A number of people who hat are so familiar with this -- three decade long record of championing.
Enforcement of the law and also championing illegal alien workers over American workers.
I think we need Republicans to do another filibuster.
And talk about the implications of this.
Why not where are you let where's the crusaders for American workers and people who abide by the law.
All right Michelle Malkin great report as always thanks for being with us you back take care about it.
