  • Virginia Amendment Would Allow Inmates To Vote, Potentially Roiling Politics In Counties With Prisons

    Virginia Democrats Mamie E. Locke and Kaye Kory will introduce a measure Jan. 8 that would allow prisoners to vote from jail in the state. The bill appears to allow prisoners to vote in the jurisdiction of the jail, potentially making inmates a powerful voting bloc in sparsely populated communities. It is one of numerous radical bills that could be passed rapidly after the Democrats take control of Virginia’s legislature for the first time in years. Democratic lawmakers in Virginia, who recently won control of the state’s legislature, proposed altering the state’s constitution to allow prisoners and mentally handicapped individuals...

    Democratic presidential contender former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg apologized for getting caught using prisoners to make phone calls soliciting campaign donations. "I know the knee-jerk response is to condemn the practice of employing prisoners to perform labor on a campaign," he said. "But let me point out that utilizing cheap labor is one of the things that billionaires do. Amassing great wealth is easier if costs can be driven as low as possible." Bloomberg also congratulated himself for "bringing more convicts into the political process. Many states, New York included, are enacting laws allowing prisoners to vote. Voting,...

    The state of New York will soon allow accused criminals to inspect their own crime scenes and will quickly provide them with a complete list of named witnesses testifying against them as part of a series of new jailbreak laws. As Breitbart News reported, New York’s bail reforms, set to go into effect January 2020, will ensure that suspects accused of crimes deemed “non-violent” are not jailed before their trial dates and do not have to post bail. Instead, these suspects are released directly back into the public and expected to show up for their court dates. Roughly 125,000 accused criminals are expected...

    Earlier this month, the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) ordered the FBI to re-verify all previous warrant applications involving the FBI attorney who falsified evidence against the former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. However, Fox News has learned the court did not order the FBI to double-check warrant applications involving other officials who made key omissions and errors in warrant applications as the bureau sought to surveil Page. The FISC's failure to request a comprehensive evaluation of previous submissions has stunned court-watchers who have questioned whether enough is being done to deter future misconduct by the FBI. In the...

    Newly elected Governor Andy Beshear (D-Ky) has signed an executive order restoring the voting rights of over 100,000 of the state’s convicted felons. “A truly representative government must include the votes of everyone, that includes criminals,” Beshear said. “That’s why one of my first acts as governor must be to welcome these people into the voting booths.” The governor also cited the discriminatory impact that barring felons from voting has had. “A quarter of the African-American adults in our state are convicted felons,” Beshear observed. “A policy that bars former prisoners from voting has racist impacts. A person’s preferred lifestyle...

    Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear signed an executive order Thursday to restore voting rights to nearly 140,000 convicted felons, making good on an inaugural promise he made just days ago after being sworn in. The order applies to Kentuckians who have committed non-violent offenses and have completed their sentences and does not include sex offenders, rapists or murderers, Beshear, a Democrat, said to a group of voting rights supporters. "My faith teaches me forgiveness," Beshear said. "We all make mistakes."

    When did it become acceptable for everyone to bring their Stew Pet dogs to the mall? I just wanted some vegetables and chicken for dinner so I stopped at our mega mall here in San Jose and grabbed my chow at Sarko. Yum So, I am sitting there taking my first sip of my Diet Coke and I start to hear the whining of a little dog. Concerned, I look around and don't see it. Then this lady walks past me and she has two dinky dogs on a leash. I probably know the breed but, whatever. The dinky dork...

    Violent crimes cases across Boulder County surged from 2013 to 2018, a trend that corresponds with a rising number of felony case filing across the state. According to Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty, state felony case filings spiked nearly 45% in five years. In Boulder County, the majority of new felony case filings were for violent crimes, which saw a 32% increase from 2013 to 2018. ... Violent crimes include cases that involve assault, robbery, vehicular homicide, crimes against at-risk individuals, bias-motivated crimes, murder, attempted murder and stalking. In Boulder County, Dougherty said domestic violence is the county’s most...
  • California governor signs bill letting murderers and violent criminals serve on juries

    We’ve reported on states changing laws to allow felons to vote. Then you’ve got California releasing murderers because it “feels right” to give them another chance. Now, in another sign that the inmates are running the prison, the governor of California has approved “The Right to a Jury of Your Peers”. It’s a move that will allow people with a prior felony conviction to serve on juries in California for the first time. Prior to this, there was a law in California that excluded felons from jury service. Local media backed the legislation ... The state Assembly approved the legislation...

    Democratic presidential candidate former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke pushed back against criticism that his gun confiscation plan is unrealistic by citing "the successful 1993 action against gun scofflaws in Waco taken by the Clinton Administration. Here we had a cult armed to the teeth. Attorney General Janet Reno didn't hesitate to use force to achieve the disarmament of these dangerous misfits. All I'm proposing is that we use the same courageous proactive approach toward today's anti-government traitors and terrorists." "I am pleased to see that Democrats in the House are advancing a bill that would authorize the disarming of any...

    Hunter Biden: The mere mention of his name seemingly triggers the vapors among cable-TV hosts and their guests. When President Donald Trump turned to the Bidens and Ukraine in a speech, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace cut off the coverage, declaring she had to protect the listeners: “We hate to do this, really, but the president isn't telling the truth.” When Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) tried to answer a question about the Ukraine scandal by referencing the Bidens, “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd angrily told him not to “gaslight” the nation. The Bidens, simply, are not what well-bred people discuss...

I am asking my fellow FReepers to help me compile THE DEFINITIVE ITEMIZED LIST of Democrats who've ESCAPED JUSTICE for their serious crimes, knowing THEIR Deep State media will continue to PROTECT THEM BY COMPLETELY IGNORING THEIR CRIMES AND DISTRACTING US WITH FAKE ACCUSATIONS ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP.

    Marijuana would not only be legalized under a plan proposed on Thursday by Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke, but cannabis tax revenue would be used to directly repay formerly incarcerated people through a new "Drug War Justice Grant" program. Unlike other contenders who have come around to supporting marijuana legalization in just the past couple of years, the former Texas congressman has long called for ending prohibition—and his new plan in many respects goes further than those rolled out by other campaigns. While rival candidates have proposed funding programs to begin repairing the harms of the war on drugs through...

    The series — streaming from Netflix October 2 — aims to both “illuminate and humanize the complex U.S. immigration system.” Variety added that it shows the “struggles many must endure in their quest to pursue the American dream.” Yes, it’s a dangerous and hard crime to commit. Maybe if we see how hard these folks work at making illegal crossings, risking their kids with potential human traffickers, among other crimes, we will sympathize better. Gomez herself demands that we change our thinking on "immigrants." She claimed that the reason she “chose to produce this series” was that “the word immigrant...

    A former analyst for the FBI admitted Tuesday to copying the private emails of a conservative conspiracy theorist and sharing them with his superiors while his wife offered them to the press. Mark Tolson, 60, pleaded guilty in federal court in Alexandria, Va., to one misdemeanor count of accessing without authorization the email account of lobbyist Jack Burkman. Burkman is identified in the court documents by the initials “J.B.” Tolson’s wife, Sarah Gilbert Fox, worked for Burkman from October 2017 to early summer 2018 and had access to his email, according to a statement of facts. Tolson learned in October...
