    "The White House is like a subway. You have to put in coins to open the gates." Such were the immortal words of one Johnny Chung, who admitted to a Senate committee in 1997 that he funneled $100,000 from the Chinese military to the Democratic National Committee. In the Clinton White House, it was pay to play all the way. That either Bill or Hillary had a political life after their treasonous run on Asian piggy banks is a testament to the ever escalating corruption of the American media. The White House honcho who made the subways run on time...

    In what was billed as a preview of a newly passed California law that will permit imprisoned felons to vote for real next year, a limited trial run was conducted by the inmate-run newspaper at San Quentin State Prison this week. The inmates were given an opportunity to vote for president of the United States and on Proposition 62, which would outlaw capital punishment. Democrat Hillary Clinton won with 79% of the vote. Green Party candidate Jill Stein finished second with 11%. Donald Trump was third with 9%. Editor of the inmate paper Arnulfo Garcia speculated that "the results might...

    The latest round brings to 774 the number of sentences Obama has commuted, including 590 this year. The White House says it’s more than the previous 11 presidents put together. Almost all of those receiving commutations were convicted of drug-related offenses. Most are considered nonviolent offenders, although some were convicted of firearms charges in connection with drug crimes. Many of the recipients had been serving life sentences.

    Illegal interference in the battleground states. There is already evidence that voter fraud is being perpetrated in critical battleground states like Virginia and Colorado a month before Election Day. Voter fraud is commonplace. Completely eliminating it is impossible. The most policymakers can do is create laws and policies that attempt to minimize it. Voter fraud is unlawful interference with the electoral process in an effort to bring about a desired result. Voter fraud is also called vote fraud, election fraud, and electoral fraud. It refers to fraudulent voting, impersonation, intimidation, perjury, voter registration fraud, forgery, counterfeiting, bribery, destroying already cast...

When a person is convicted of a felony, they lose many of their civil rights, including the right to vote. After serving their time, they can apply to have their rights restored, but Florida has all but eliminated the restoration of rights since Gov. Rick Scott took office. 9 Investigates compared Scott's record to that of former Gov. Jeb Bush during the first four years he was in office, as well as to the four years that former Gov.

Originally, the Associated Press reported that the aliens’ fingerprints were not in searchable government databases, allowing them to apply for citizenship under different names and birthdays. The scope of the problem is massive: “Fingerprints are missing from federal databases for as many as 315,000 immigrants with final deportation orders or who are fugitive criminals,”...

    Note: Asterisks ** are used for emphasis since bold and italics don't seem to be available. Deportations are a Bitter Pill I. Introduction Most of us empathize with illegal immigrants and understand why they would come. We think of illegals we’ve met or known personally – they’ve seemed like decent people and cost us little in the grand scheme of things. On most days, the sky isn’t falling. Counter-intuitively, these sentiments make the issue of immigration so existential, dangerous, and urgent. Like the free rider problem, the cost of an individual is trivial but in aggregate can cripple. Immigration’s impact...

    Another fallacy that is disabused in this survey (which states it follows in a long line of other surveys) is that more background checks will change anything in terms of how criminals get guns. Since they typically do not walk into an FFL making background checks more demanding, is not going to decrease the use of guns in crimes. For ordinary citizens, they must and do comply with the gun laws no matter how they acquire their guns. As I stated previously, it appears to me the anti-gun people are creating laws to restrict the activities of law-abiding citizens. That...

When McAuliffe restored the voting rights for 206,000 felons in a move critics say was politically motivated, he also opened the door for those felons to have their right to own a firearm restored. Previously, felons would individually have to petition the executive branch to have their civil rights restored. Petitioners would have to fill out...

But, in fact, the country recorded an extra 402,741 crimes committed by migrants. While much of this criminality concerned illegal border crossings, German authorities instead talked up a “record surge” in crimes by “right wing radicals”.

    The Obama administration has gone into overdrive in the last two months, pushing administrative policy changes to make it easier for ex-convicts to rejoin society, but at the same time sparking concern that reforms will increase crime and jeopardize safety. The federal efforts have been spurred on in part by bipartisan criminal justice reforms enacted at the state level and changing public opinion that has warmed to second chances, experts say. Reforms have included recommendations to make it easier for ex-offenders to obtain state ID cards, removing questions about criminal history from federal job applications and suggestions to do the...

    Backers of the criminal justice reform bill pending in Congress are intent on reducing the population of the federal prisons. Their premise? Prisons are overflowing with minor drug offenders who have no reason to be incarcerated – “mass incarceration” is the term they like to use. As many have pointed out, that premise is a lie. Less than one percent of the federal prison population is there for drug possession, and most of those pled down from a more serious offense. But the left is intent on releasing prisoners anyway – mostly before their sentences run. Those to be let...

    Philippines' president-elect Rodrigo Duterte vowed Sunday to reintroduce capital punishment and give security forces "shoot-to-kill" orders in a devastating war on crime. In his first press conference since winning the May 9 elections in a landslide, the tough-talking mayor of southern Davao city warned his campaign threats to kill were not rhetoric. "What I will do is urge Congress to restore (the) death penalty by hanging," Duterte, 71, told a press conference in Davao. He also said he would give security forces "shoot-to-kill" orders against organised criminals or those who violently resisted arrest. "If you resist, show violent resistance, my...
  • Obama doesn’t think rapists, armed robbers, drug dealers are ‘criminals’

    According to Team Obama, criminals should now be declared “justice-involved individuals.” The neo-Orwellianism comes to us from the bizarre flurry of last-minute diktats, regulations and bone-chilling threats collectively known to fanboys as Obama’s Gorgeous Goodbye. In another of those smiley-faced, but deeply sinister, “Dear Colleague” letters sent to universities and college this week, Obama’s Education Secretary John King discouraged colleges from asking applicants whether they were convicted criminals. An accompanying pamphlet was called “Beyond the Box: Increasing Access to Higher Education for Justice-Involved Individuals.” So rapists, burglars, armed robbers and drug dealers aren’t criminals anymore. These folks are simply “involved”...

    US Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. wants colleges to stop asking applicants about their criminal histories early in the admissions process. Because a disproportionate number of people who have been charged with crimes are people of color, the U.S. Department of Education says, these questions increase the barriers disadvantaged students face when seeking an education. “We believe in second chances and we believe in fairness,” King said in a statement. “We must ensure that more people ... have the chance at higher education opportunities.” The Department of Education is sending a guide, called “Beyond the Box,” with suggestions...
  • Rep. Black pans Justice Dept. decision to stop using words ‘convict’ and ‘felon’

    The decision by a Justice Department office to cease using the words “convict” and “felon” in official communications ignores “the personal responsibility that these ex-offenders must assume for themselves,” said Rep. Diane Black. Responding to Wednesday’s announcement that the Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs would no longer use the “disparaging labels” when officials refer to individuals convicted of crimes, the Tennessee Republican was critical of the message the decision sent to crime victims. “The words ‘convict’ and ‘felon’ are not disparaging, in fact they are quite generous compared to some of the phrases we could accurately ascribe to certain...

    To make public-sector jobs more accessible to convicts, President Obama has issued a new order prohibiting federal agencies from asking candidates about criminal history when applying for positions. It’s part of the commander-in-chief’s mission to reduce barriers to reentry and employment for incarcerated individuals once they leave jail. The new measure, announced in a Friday media dump, will affect tens of thousands of federal government positions funded with taxpayer dollars. Government often tries to escape fallout by burying controversial or bad news right before the weekend, but it’s difficult to keep this outrageous development below the radar. At the president’s...
