In today’s Obama is the biggest and fakest joke in U.S. politics ever news... Obama commutes sentences of 58 more federal prisoners May 5, 2016 http://www.politico.com/blogs/under-the-radar/2016/05/obama-commutes-federal-prisoners-222865 President Barack Obama commuted the sentences of 58 more federal prisoners Thursday, seeking to add momentum to his drive to allow earlier releases of men and women serving lengthy terms for drug offenses. The newly announced commutations bring to 306 the total number of commutations Obama has issued since taking office more than seven years ago. More than two years ago, the Obama administration launched a "Clemency Initiative" that prompted more than 36,000 prisoners to request assistance filing applications for commutations. Obama aides hoped thousands of prisoners would have their sentences shortened through the initiative. However, the president's effort encountered bureaucratic obstacles and has been dependent to a large degree on volunteer lawyers organized through an outside consortium called Clemency Project 2014. In January, the Justice Department's pardon attorney quit, citing a lack of resources and an inability to communicate directly with the White House. 306 out of TENS OF THOUSANDS. Haha !! Should have elected Ron Paul in 2012, he promised to presidentially pardon ALL nonviolent “drug criminals” of all races nationwide. But about those supposed “bureaucratic obstacles,” it is OBAMA who is the obstacle: No Clemency For You!
