Obama Commutes Sentences of Drug Criminals


We still have almost 2 years left of this nightmare, and already the prison doors are swinging open:

President Obama [yesterday] announced his decision to commute the sentences of 22 convicted drug offenders – many of them serving time after being convicted of conspiracy to distribute either cocaine, heroin, marijuana or methamphetamine.

“The 22 commutations granted today underscore the President’s commitment to using all the tools at his disposal to bring greater fairness and equity to our justice system,” [barked] White House Assistant and Counsel to the President Neil Eggleston in a statement on the White House Website.

“Fairness and equity.” Coming from this administration, that means the lucky recipients of Get Out of Jail Free cards are not pale of complexion.

Although he has no time to meet with world leaders like Netanyahu, Obama penned a letter to one criminal upon whom he bestowed fairness and equity, writing, “So good luck, and Godspeed.”

Readers will recall that just before he left office Bill Clinton arrogantly pardoned or commuted the sentences of an appalling list of scoundrels without justification. Regarding the outrageous pardon of fugitive embargo-busting tax cheat Marc Rich, even Slate acknowledges that

Attorney General Eric Holder, who was then a deputy attorney general, was instrumental in securing Rich’s pardon.

Presumed presidential candidate Shrillary Clinton is believed to be behind the pardon of FALN terrorists with American blood on their hands, so as to help motivate Hispanic voters for her New York Senate run.

Before we are rid of Obama, cold-blooded cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal will be delivering his college commencement addresses in person. Good thing Tookie Williams was executed or he would walk too — along with a horde of sociopaths, proving definitively that justice and “social justice” are antonyms.

It will be Obama’s last chance to kick America in the teeth before becoming the black Jimmy Carter, relegated to bitterly denouncing the country from the sidelines.

Obama will want to change the pigmentation before passing these out.

Is Barack and Michelle’s marriage falling apart?

American Thinker

Ordinarily, the state of other people’s marriages is of no concern to me, unless I know them and their children personally and observe the consequences of strife and disintegration.  But we are all affected by the mental and emotional stability of the president of the United States, particularly as the Middle East threatens to explode into an Armageddon-inducing nuclear arms race featuring regimes anxious to bring on the end of the world to realize religious prophecy.

The behavior of our commander in chief has been erratic, to say the least.  Flying off to Florida for golf in the face of the negotiations with Iran at a critical stage and ordering beers for the front cabin of Air Force One in the early morning and then stumbling down the stairs at the end of the return trip are danger signs.  But so is any evidence of real domestic strife at the White House.  If his personal life is falling apart, President Obama’s stewardship of our national security may be influenced.

Readers of the National Enquirer, which scooped the entire media of the United States in exposing John Edwards as a lying, philandering sire of an illegitimate child kept hidden, have been treated to many articles chronicling the troubled marriage of Barack and Michelle Obama (here, here, here, and here, for example).

But now, others are starting to notice the public body language of the first couple and commenting.  On The American Spectator, Esther Goldberg writes:
