President Obama swore to uphold the Constitution when he was elected, but he is not. We have one more example this past week, as if we didn’t have enough examples prior to this. Obama now says he will release hundred of thousands of drug offenders back into society before they have served their time in the interest of “fairness” as he defines “fairness.”
Recently, Obama has allowed two states – Washington and Colorado – to illegally make marijuana legal. It will win Democrats votes. It’s a popular move but one that will pose a serious threat to our culture.
Also popular is letting people out of jail and he is going to unilaterally release hundreds of thousands of people convicted of drug crimes even though the laws that put them in prison were written by Congress.
President Obama is going to abuse the presidential pardon power to rewrite drug laws and pardon massive numbers of criminals with one sweeping gesture. This isn’t about individual cases as is the customary use of the pardon power, it’s a mass release.
Many of these criminals copped pleas and were actually guilty of more serious crimes than that for which they were convicted.
The biggest drop in crime has taken place over the last forty years thanks to our tough laws. To say the two things are unrelated is bizarre but that is what our president and AG Holder are saying.
