    Yesterday on Face the Nation, I responded to questions about the migrant separations from their children under the Trump Administration’s policy announced last month by trying to shift the focus to what drives these migrations in the first place – something that can’t be addressed by a simple band-aid piece of legislation paving the way for more lax border requirements.

    President Trump suggested executing drug dealers to crack down on America’s opioid crisis. “The drug dealers, the drug pushers, they’re really doing damage,” Trump said at an opioid event at the White House Thursday. “Some countries have a very, very tough penalty — the ultimate penalty. And by the way, they have much less of a drug problem than we do.”
  • President Obama Has Given 657 Commutations To Cocaine Dealers Since August

    That represents nearly 80 percent of the commutations the president has given since August. Commutations are a form of clemency, which reduces the sentences of federal prisoners. President Obama has given more commutations then the past 11 presidents combined, and The New York Times reports he plans to give more before his final day in office. Many of these cocaine dealers who have received clemency from Obama were not low-level criminals. Darryl Reed was sentenced to 35 years in 1990 and will now be released from federal prison on Dec. 28, 2016. Reed used to be known as the “crack...

    Post Standard, Syracuse NY ^ | 09/21/17 | By Julie McMahon jmcmahon@syracuse.com,
    A Syracuse crack cocaine dealer granted clemency by President Barack Obama for his role in a large '90s drug ring is facing jail over missed drug tests. Dewayne Comer, 47, will appear in federal court Friday to ask a judge not to send him back to prison. Probation officials said in court papers that Comer failed to report for four drug tests, most recently over Labor Day Weekend. Testing was required as part of Comer's supervised release. Comer served nearly 21 years of a life sentence before Obama commuted his and 213 other defendants' sentences in 2016.

    President Obama commuted the prison sentences Friday of 42 more inmates, nearly half of whom were serving life terms. The commutations bring Mr. Obama’s total to 348, more than the previous seven presidents combined, as he pushes to grant clemency for people mostly convicted of nonviolent drug offenses. White House counsel Neil Eggleston said those receiving clemency were serving prison terms “under outdated and unduly harsh sentencing laws.”

    Truncated title. Full title: President Obama commutes 50-year sentence for leader of historic Baton Rouge cocaine distribution ring. President Barack Obama on Wednesday commuted the 50-year federal prison sentence of a Baton Rouge man accused of being the ringleader of one of the city’s largest crack cocaine distribution rings. John E. “Boo” Milton III, 50, will be released on July 28 under the president’s order. He has served 19 years of that sentence and is being held at a federal prison in Alabama. A federal probation officer had estimated that Milton was responsible for bringing 210 pounds of powder and...

    Bruce Francis transferred some money to his dog walker to pay for services to his pit bull, and wrote the dog's name, "Dash," in the notes field. The processors at Chase Bank thought that Dash might be a sneaky way of spelling Daesh (which is the mocking, insulting nickname used by critics to refer to "ISIS"), decided that this was possible terrorist money-laundering, and stopped the payment, froze his account, and notified the Treasury Department that he was a suspected terrorist. It's hard to know what's stupidest about this: that the bank thought that Daesh was the kind of thing...

    Judicial Watch ^ | March 2, 2016
    A convicted crack dealer who left prison early as part of the Obama administration’s mass release of federal inmates has been indicted by a grand jury for fatally stabbing his ex-girlfriend and her two kids in Columbus, Ohio. The gory crime drew national attention because the children, ages 7 and 10, were murdered to eliminate them as witnesses in the brutal massacre of their 32-year-old mother. This week a grand jury in Franklin County returned a 10-count, death-penalty indictment against the ex-con, 35-year-old Wendell Callahan, for the triple murders. Callahan broke into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and stabbed the three victims,...

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, had the voice of a liberal and a libertarian when he wrote a piece for the Brennan Center for Justice in April that ripped the federal criminal justice system on three fronts -- "overcriminalization, harsh mandatory minimum sentences, and the demise of jury trials." "Draconian mandatory minimum sentences," he wrote, can produce sentences that far outweigh the crime, especially for "nonviolent drug offenders." The Ted Cruz who wrote that piece -- and co-sponsored the Smarter Sentencing Act of 2015 with Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Dick Durbin, D-Ill. -- may not be familiar to those following...

    A group representing federal prosecutors said Tuesday that President Obama violated his own rules last week when he granted clemency to 91 convicted drug dealers who were released from prison early. Reflecting deep divisions in the Justice Department, the National Association of Assistant U.S. Attorneys called on the White House and leaders at Justice to release all information involved in the decisions to release the drug dealers, saying the public has a right to know whether a program to free criminals "is prudent, much less necessary." "Americans need more information than they are getting in order to decide whether now...

Radical leftist pro-crime media which decided to wage war on cops. Now murders are mysteriously rising for reasons they can't explain. It must be Global Warming. Or car insurance rates. Or maybe squirrels. I bet it's the squirrels causing all the murders. Now let's run another #BlackLivesMatter puff piece and more pro-crime propaganda about freeing drug dealers. Cities across the nation are seeing a startling rise in murders after years of declines, and few...

    On July 13, 2015, Barack Obama proudly announced 46 commutations at a federal prison. It’s not unusual for a president to pardon people or commute sentences. Many presidents and governors do so occasionally, hopefully when they are absolutely convinced that the criminal justice system otherwise failed an innocent defendant. There are exceptions, of course. Gerald Ford pardoned his predecessor, Richard Nixon, in a well-intentioned effort to heal the nation after the Watergate “scandal” (though calling any political kerfuffle a “scandal,” in light of the Obama administration’s notorious daily crimes, does seem an abuse of the word). And Bill Clinton used...

    Donald Trump on Sunday blasted "corrupt Mexican officials" for letting a notorious drug kingpin escape from a maximum security prison. Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman escaped the prison by riding a motorcycle through a mile-long tunnel that was connected to the shower area of Guzman's cell. It is his second escape, and prison employees are being questioned. Trump noted that the last time Guzman escaped he was free for 13 years. "He has been selling drugs in the U.S. big-time – a major kingpin," he said in a statement sent to the media. "He is possibly in the U.S. and his...

    Saudi Arabia Monday beheaded a Syrian drug trafficker and a national convicted of murder, taking to 100 the number of executions in the kingdom this year. The number of executions has surged in 2015 compared with the 87 recorded by AFP for all of last year. But it is still far below the record 192 which rights group Amnesty International said took place in 1995. Syrian Ismael al-Tawm smuggled "a large amount of banned amphetamine pills into the kingdom", said an interior ministry statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency. He was beheaded in the northern region of Jawf.
