140518prisoner

President Obama on Tuesday commuted the sentences of another 111 convicted drug felons, mostly dealers, bringing the total to 673 inmates freed under his executive power.

And there are likely many more reprieves to come.

The White House tweeted the announcement and the following chart Tuesday afternoon, stating: “BREAKING: @POTUS just commuted 111 people, bringing the total to more than the past 10 presidents combined.”

Obama-commuted-sentences

Obama appears intent on setting records for sentence commutations. As WND reported less than four weeks ago, the White House boasted of springing more prisoners than nine presidents combined.

Most of the inmates are drug dealers, many armed when they committed their crimes. Many trafficked cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. Nearly a third of the prisoners whose sentenced Obama has commuted are serving life sentences.

“They are individuals who received unduly harsh sentences under outdated laws for committing largely nonviolent drug crimes, for example, the 35 individuals whose life sentences were commuted today,” White House Counsel Neil Eggleston said in a blog post Tuesday. “For each of these applicants, the president considers the individual merits of each application to determine that an applicant is ready to make use of his or her second chance.”

But most of the offenders on the list are not small-time criminals.

“As we’ve seen throughout the year, while Obama touts these criminals as low-level drug offenders, almost everyone in the federal system is a hardcore drug trafficker in which violent crime is a way of life,” wrote David Horowitz at the Conservative Review. “Many of the sentences were originally plead down simply because it is always easier to nail a prosecution on drug charges, even when the individual was originally arrested for armed robbery or even murder. A quick search shows that at least 16 of these individuals were convicted of firearms charges, including using a firearm in the furtherance of drug trafficking. This, at a time when Obama is trying to clamp down on law-abiding gun owners.”

Horowitz also noted that Republicans aren’t pushing back against Obama’s jailbreak plans.

“House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La. (D, 64%) and Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. (F, 53%) are busy drumming up support for a major push on sentencing reductions, which will empower liberal judges to saddle us with more Willie Hortons,” he wrote. “Next Thursday, Scalise is planning to hold a member briefing making the case to House members that this is the hill to die on for the September session.”

Pointing to the recent Supreme Court’s decision to retroactively “invalidate” a statute concerning repeat offenders, Horowitz also explained that thousands of America’s worst criminals may now see their cases reopened.

“Liberal district judges (40% of active bench appointed by Obama) will be able to release even some of the criminals deemed to violent by Obama’s Justice Department,” Horowitz explained.
