GOP "reaching across the aisle" to free drug dealers from prison



We are always told of the importance of "reaching across the aisle" and "working bipartisanly", at least when it comes to bills Democrats want passed! Well, once again Republicans are only too glad to help when it comes to releasing "low level" drug dealers and addicts from jail, soon to burglarize a home near you to feed their addiction, no doubt.

In June, Representatives Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Bobby Scott (D-VA) introduced the most ambitious criminal-justice reform bill Congress had seen in years.

An ambitious reform? We don't know what this bill is yet, but can you figure out if Politico is for or against it?

The bill, called the SAFE Justice Act

Who says Republicans don't know how to market themselves? They're proposing a bill that has the word "Safe" in its name! That sounds like it will make us safer!

[which] bundles together a lot of relatively small reforms into a package that could reduce the federal prison population significantly.

Note the obtuse way this is written. Even the hacks at Politico know that people aren't in favor of releasing criminals from jail, so they call it "reducing the prison population". For all we know it could be through a massive simultaneous retroactive expansion of the death penalty.

It's built on recent criminal-justice reforms taken at the state level, as dozens of states have cut prison sentences and adopted "data-driven" rehabilitation policies.

Data-driven! I don't know what that means, but it sounds scientific! Do you think there must be some book or how-to guide to propaganda writing by Joseph Goebbels that these leftist journalists must have read?

The House's solution, via the SAFE Justice Act, isn't to reduce the mandatory minimums themselves — but to narrow the range of people who they apply to. Instead of someone who's convicted of trafficking a certain amount of cocaine being automatically sentenced to 10 years, for example, he'd only trigger the 10-year minimum if he were also a leader or organizer of an organization of five or more people. And even then, the bill says that judges can override the mandatory minimum if the defendant doesn't have much of a criminal history, or has a serious drug problem.

So if someone sold a "certain amount" of cocaine to school kids, but only had four people in his organization, he would not longer be subject to mandatory minimums for prison. This is called progress?

The bill would also make it possible for more people to be sentenced to probation instead of getting sent to prison. It would allow drug offenders to get probation if they'd been convicted of low-level drug crimes before.

This is insane; giving probation to a repeat offender? Who thinks like this?

My favorite sentence in the whole article:
Prisoners could get 33 percent off their prison terms for participating in programming

No, unfortunately they are not talking about programming them like robots. If prisoners "participate" in prison "education programs" they can get about a third off of their sentence. This is a serious weakening of sentencing laws. If a crime carries 10 years, you don't want them out in seven, all because they participated in some phony prison program.

This is all part of a movement to decriminalize not only the usage of narcotics, but the traffic

When Gawker outs married men as gay they are saving lives


Gawker, the far-left gay sex-themed website which has articles focusing on catty gossip, the size and firmness of mens' buttocks, scrutinizing photos of men for outlines of their penises, and other issues foremost on the minds of the gay community, has become even more controversial than usual. In the past, they have outed some public figures as gays, especially those who publically opposed the homosexual agenda. But now they have taken it a step further, outing a business executive as gay who has no involvement with politics, and isn't even a public figure.

How can we make it politically ok to talk about limiting Muslim immigration?


Every so often there is a massacre. Sometimes the monsters who commit them have names like Dylann Roof, but more often than not they have names like Muhammad Youssuf Abdulazeez or Nidal Malik Hasan. Given the fact that the vast majority of people in America are Christian, and only a small minority are Muslim, the preponderance of Muslim mass killers only further highlights the disproportionate number of killers who come from that community.

Move over, Google Maps! Introducing the NYC Public Urination Map!


Now that New York City is decriminalizing public urination, New Yorkers of every stripe want to know where they can go to witness New York's version of the Old Faithful geyser, watching powerful stream of apple juice colored liquids gracing the noble streets of New York from powerful local spouts. Thankfully 21st century mapping technology has taken the guesswork out of this, as New York introduces its very first urination map! (Not to confuse this with, or to dethrone, San Francisco's solid human waste street map!)
