  • President Obama just commuted the sentences of 58 people. Here are their names.

    President Obama commuted the sentences of 58 inmates Thursday as part of his ongoing initiative to release federal prisoners who have received severe mandatory sentences for non-violent drug offenses. With this latest round of commutations, Obama has granted clemency to a total 306 inmates, 110 of whom were serving life sentences. Obama has said he will continue granting commutations during his final months in office to inmates who meet certain criteria set out by the Justice Department. Since the Obama administration launched its high-profile clemency initiative two years ago, thousands of inmates have applied. More than 9,000 petitions are pending....

    U.S. authorities seized another cross-border tunnel, this time in San Diego, just weeks after a similar tunnel was uncovered in Calexico, Calif., a two-hour drive to the east. The 874-yard-long tunnel was uncovered, on Wednesday, after a months-long investigation, authorities said. The tunnel was equipped with a rail system, lighting, a ventilation system, and even a commercial elevator on the Mexico-side that could fit up to ten people, authorities said. Laura Duffy, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of California, said the tunnel was “a bit ingenuous” and “completely different” than any of the tunnels her office had seen before....

Wells www.colostate.edu Abstract: The recent findings of cocaine, nicotine, and hashishin Egyptian mummies by Balabanova et. al. have been criticized on grounds that: contamination of the mummies may have occurred, improper techniques may have been used, chemical decomposition may have produced the compounds in question, recent mummies of drug users were mistakenly evaluated, that no similar cases are known of such compounds in long-dead bodies, and especially that pre-Columbian transoceanic voyages are highly speculative. These criticisms are each discussed in turn. Balabanova et. al. are shown to have used and confirmed their findings with...

    SOURCE DOCUMENT FEBRUARY 16--Presidential contender Donald Trump, who has vowed to stanch the flow of narcotics and criminals entering the U.S. from Mexico, once wrote to a judge urging leniency for a friend who was convicted of distributing kilos of cocaine that had been smuggled into the country from Colombia, court records show. In advance of Joseph Weichselbaum’s November 1987 sentencing by a U.S. District Court judge, Trump wrote that the drug trafficker was “conscientious, forthright, diligent and a credit to the community.” At the time Trump wrote his character reference letter, Weichselbaum, then in his mid-40s, was already a...

No super PAC had ever raised so much cash so early in an election cycle. In fact, Right to Rise alone outraised all the super PACs combined at the same stage in the 2012 elections. Now, after primary elections in just three states, Bush is out. He finished sixth in the Iowa caucus, fourth in the New Hampshire primary, and now, fourth...

Cicilia, 58, who is now working as a real estate agent, served just 12 years in prison despite being sentenced to 35 for his part in the scheme. While he was behind bars, Rubio was launching his career in Florida. Cicilia was released four...

    One word can sometimes change the way one views things. To wit: if one adds the word “other” to alcohol and drugs (alcohol and other drugs) one’s perspective is likely to change. The failure to use it in normal parlance speaks to an arbitrary distinction that has for too long been accepted. It is difficult to argue that alcohol is not a drug and the same applies to nicotine. Further, like almost all recreational drugs, they offer an immediate “high” followed by a “low” as the pleasure chemicals oscillate back to stasis. “Weed,” cocaine, heroin (OXY) etc. do exactly the...

How will Beck distinguish between the two, and then distinguish the refugees from aspiring terrorists? He says he has a...

All of that is now pretty well known, and it is finally beginning to gain some attention from Latin American leaders who for years did their best to appease or ignore Hugo Chávez and his “Bolivarian Revolution.” What’s less understood is...

    Hearing 'news' lately of the Castro regime's drug-running into the US shouldn't come as a revelation to anyone- Havana was long an ally of Columbia's coke-producing communist rebels, and other cash-strapped socialist paradises like North Korea operate mafia-like smuggling and counterfeiting operations in order to generate hard currency... I'm sure the CIA always knew or at least suspected/expected that to be the case with the Cubans. But I was thumbing through an unofficial bio of George Herbert Walker Bush (albeit one authored by a couple 9/11-truthers -and published by the LaRouche organization) over the weekend and was amused to find implications that...

    For starters, I had to spell check "potpourri." I wasn't even close on my first try. Thank you college dropout, Bill Gates. Speaking of college dropouts, I got involved in a Tweet-fest over the weekend about Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's lack of a college degree. My Tweet read: Looking for ways to knock @ScottWalker? No college degree. Wrong. Would be a problem if he'd lied about it, but he never has. One response read: "What should we tell our children?" which caused my Sunday coffee to spurt out of my nose because that's exactly what we used to say about...
