Obama Will Take ‘Executive Action’ to Reduce Prison Population

From CNS News: Congress can pass legislation giving judges more discretion in the sentencing of prisoners, but President Obama “also has the ability to take executive action” to commute the sentences of “low-level” drug offenders — and that’s just what he plans to do, Deputy Attorney General James Cole told the New York State Bar Association annual meeting on Thursday. “A little over a month ago, the President commuted the sentences of eight men and women who were sentenced under severe — and out of date — mandatory minimum sentencing laws,” Cole said. “But the President’s grant of commutations for … Continue reading

ZoNation: EBT & Legalized Pot

Marijuana is now legal for recreational use in Colorado. The people who legalized it were probably stoned. And when they passed this bill, like a Joint, they didn’t consider that people would over-toke from the workers taxes? Well said. ~ Hardnox

Donations to Roves’s PACs Drop 98% after Attack on Conservatives

From Breitbart: After wasting nearly $325 million during the 2012 election cycle with nothing to show for it and then declaring war on the Tea Party, donations to Karl Rove’s three Crossroads groups decreased by 98% last year. The groups reportedly raised a paltry $6.1 million combined in 2013. Rove runs Crossroads GPS, American Crossroads, and the Conservative Victory Project Super PAC, which was formed this year to wage war against conservatives. Rove’s two groups raised $325 million in 2012 and about $70 million in 2010. As Politico notes, though, “Rove added a third group to the network in 2013, forming the Conservative Victory … Continue reading

Obama says he’s open to taking executive action on immigration

  From The Hill: President Obama on Friday said he’s open to taking executive action on immigration. The president said if Congress can’t pass reform legislation, he would explore all “available options” to implement a “smart system” unilaterally. “I’m going to look at all available options,” Obama said during a virtual “road trip” chat hosted by Google. Obama said he’s “modestly optimistic” that Congress would pass immigration legislation this year and called the immigration principles unveiled by House Republican leaders this week a step in the right direction. “There are still some differences,” Obama said. “I want to engage. I … Continue reading

Governor Jan Brewer: Border is Being Over-run

She agrees with Sen. Cruz that “no amnesty, fix border first”.  “… why won’t they seal the border?” Governor Brewer know why, the D’s want new voters and the R’s want cheap labor.  End of story. I remain disgusted.  What part of “Illegal Aliens” doesn’t our government understand? ~ Hardnox

Judge Jeanine Pirro: Olympic Security

The judge weighs in on the Sochi Olympic games and the security around them: In my opinion, the Islamonazis are hell bent to make a very public display.  The Russians have an intense security ring around the sports areas which they have dubbed “the Iron Ring” but soft targets like hotels and restaurants are very vulnerable. We can pretty well bet that the terrorists will strike. ~ Hardnox

Thug Neuters Himself

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – A man police said is responsible for a shooting in a downtown parking lot ran from the scene, but shot himself in the testicles as he shoved the gun into his waistband Tuesday night. Joseph Johnson, 40, has been released from the hospital and booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of first-degree robbery, second-degree assault and felony possession of a firearm. Robbery detectives said Johnson and the victim, 32-year-old Jordan Merrell, knew each other well and lived in the same apartment building near Southwest 10th Avenue and Columbia Street. Johnson apparently confronted Merrell in … Continue reading

Thought For Today – Feb. 1, 2014

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.” – Abraham Lincoln

Mitt Romney Is the 2016 Republican Front-Runner

This is not an Onion story. From the National Journal: Mitt Romney leads the Republican field among New Hampshire primary voters for 2016. Yes, you read that right. Why not make it a third run for president? That’s something that the former Republican nominee is definitely not thinking about right now. To put it in his own recent words: “Oh, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, no. No, no, no.” But that didn’t stop the Virginia-based bipartisan policy firm Purple Strategies from adding his name to a recent survey for Granite State voters, which shows Romney in the lead … Continue reading

Ted Cruz and Bob Schieffer, Face the Nation

In case you missed this clip which was aired last Sunday: I applaud Sen. Cruz for sticking to his principles.  He appears to be one of only a few to act like an adult in DC. Now we will have act two of the debt ceiling debate next week. ~ Hardnox

Funny Friday – Jan. 31, 2013

  —oo— An elderly couple had just learned how to send text messages on their cell phones.  The wife was a romantic type and the husband was more of a no-nonsense guy.  One afternoon the wife went out to meet a friend for coffee. As she waited for her friend, she decided to send her husband a romantic text message and she wrote: “If you are sleeping, send me your dreams. If you are laughing, send me your smile. If you are eating, send me a bite. If you are drinking, send me a sip. If you are crying, send … Continue reading

Thursday Funny: Biden Thinks He’d Make a Good President

From GOPUSA: WASHINGTON – Vice President Joe Biden says “in my heart,” he could be a good president.
