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.
