Holder likes to release terrorists. He purposely released The Puerto Rican terrorists who shot up Congress at the end of Clinton’s reign. They weren’t Muslims, the were Communist terrorists.
I have to wonder if any cartel money has made its way into the US political system.
Obama and Holder want Judicial power as well as executive power.
The executive has full pardon authority, which is a check to the judicial, but has no authority to assign, increase, or reduce sentences, and the legislative has not authority to grant it. It is strictly within the judicial power, as set forth by the legislative. But the executive should have nothing to do with it.
“Attorney General Eric Holder announced Monday that the Obama administration is formulating new rules that would give it, and the president, far more latitude to pardon or reduce the sentences of thousands of drug offenders serving long federal prison sentences.”
Just invent a law giving yourself more power. Why haven’t other Presidents done the same? Hugo Chavez used the same playbook.
That is probably why no US president makes any serious effort to control our southern border.
They have to get recruits from somewhere for their “civilian national security force,” after all.
Obama creating as much chaos as he can...
I asked about Fast and Furious for months but they ignored the question. Still wonder whether the weapons were provided to the Mexican cartels in return for large bribes from the drug dealers to the democrats.
I think once they get looking into it they will find that there aren’t any non-criminals in prison for just doing drugs.
If they spring a bunch of gangbangers it would be a matter of months before they kill someone and O’bastard has his own Dukockus moment X1000 to try to explain away.
The Demoncraps would be doomed in 2016.
The Democrats always take the side of the criminal.
while he can grant clemency, it wasn’t meant to be used like this.
Just another democrat effort to get out the vote in time to gin the 2014 election in his fsvor.
