    Biden claimed to regret how his drug warrior legacy led to mass incarceration. But the prohibition will lead to harsher policing in Black communities. It's like the president hasn't learned a thing from the failed and evil War on Drugs. This is an opinion column. The thoughts expressed are those of the author. Joe Biden clearly hasn't learned a thing from the failed and immoral War on Drugs - a disaster that he played a huge part in creating. The president on Thursday ordered the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ban menthol cigarettes, a plan first reported on Wednesday...

    By | fburns@mlive.com Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and departing President Donald Trump share some traits in common. Both left divided communities in their political wake, enlisting devout supporters who engaged in emotional faceoffs with disgusted opposition along the way. Kilpatrick, now 50 and one of Michigan’s most notorious taxpayer-funded convicted conmen, is set to be released from prison after serving seven years of his 28-year federal prison sentence. He was originally slated to live behind prison walls until age 67 with an earliest release date of Jan. 18, 2037. That changed when the Trump administration announced Kilpatrick’s sentence will...

    The director of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Friday that William Bryan, the neighbor who filmed Ahmaud Arbery's death, was not a good Samaritan or simply a witness as Bryan has claimed, but a significant player in the February killing of the unarmed black man. "If we believed he was a witness, we wouldn't have arrested him," GBI Director Vic Reynolds said Friday. "There's probable cause and we're comfortable with that." Bryan, who filmed the four-minute chase and shooting death of Arbery, was arrested Thursday evening. The 50-year-old was taken into custody and charged with felony murder and criminal...

On ABC’s “This Week” the doctor explained that lockdowns helped China and South Korea...

    Oliver North, the controversial retired Marine and former Reagan White House aide implicated in the Iran-Contra scandal, is on track to be the next president of the National Rifle Association (NRA). The organization on Monday announced that North will replace Pete Brownell in the role “within a few weeks.” The head of the NRA, Wayne LaPierre, called the appointment “the most exciting news for our members since Charlton Heston became President of our Association.” Heston served as the group’s president from 1998 to 2003, famously shouting, “From my cold, dead hands” as he held a rifle aloft during the NRA...
