Obama’s long and boring year-end press conference was cheered by many of us who can’t wait to see the last of him (click here for the countdown), but that actually served to give him cover as the media focused only on that rather than 2 more sneaky, last-minute presidential appointments.
In a big slap in the face to police in particular and first responders everywhere Obama finally got his way in appointing Dego Adegbile to six-year term on the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. You may recall the Senate blocking Adegbile’s appointment with the help of Democrats, as head of the Civil Right’s Division in 2014 because of his nefarious past at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund defending notorious cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was found guilty of the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. Unfortunately, this appointment does not require confirmation, so Obama got his way once again supporting the Black Panther Party and cop-killer cause celebre Mumia Abu-Jamal.
The other six-year appointee was Catherine Lhamon who most will not recognize but according to The Daily Caller orchestrated the Obama administration’s overhaul of Title IX, co-authored the “Dear Colleague” letter mandating transgender bathroom use in public schools. This is why we need to do away with the federal Dept of Education and give that job back to the states where it belongs.
Both of these appointments are ballsy for a guy who has barely a month left in office and as usual shows total disregard for the will of the American people.
