The Heart of Riley N-words-in-anger Cooper in Obama’s G-D America
Reading hearts, as if that were the be-all-end-all, versus judging actions in the PC Police World of tolerance and diversity that is the National Football League At age 16, I put one of my best friends out of my first car (a 1969 Chevelle Mailbu 350, metallic blue with a white vinyl top thank you very much), at night and in the woods several miles from home, because | Read More »

A PSA for executive branch bureaucrats.
If you are a member of this or any other government agency, please take this test. Please look around your desk Monday and see if you can see anything that will make you go Man, if Darrell Issa ever hears about this one then the fecal matter is going to impact the oscillating blade.

Edwin Edwards’ (D-LA) Stay at the Crossbar Hotel Extended
Because I never tire of seeing former Gov. Edwin W. Edwards (D-LA) wearing the government-issue uniform that suits him so well. Edwin Edwards’ hopes for early release appear dim WASHINGTON — Edwin Edwards’ hopes for an early release from federal prison appeared dead Monday as President George W. Bush issued what top aides said would be his final acts of clemency with no mention of | Read More »
Bush Commutes Sentences of Compean, Ramos
Multiple sources are now reporting that President Bush has commuted the sentences of border patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Campeon. President Bush has apparently decided against pardoning the two, who were convicted of essentially shooting a drug smuggler without privilege to do so. I have personally had many go-rounds with commenters here over the propriety of Ramos and Compean’s actions and I think that | Read More »
Speculation is running rampant over to whom, if anybody, President Bush will issue a last minute pardon as his time in office expires. It is at least as likely that Bush will not issue any 11th hour reprieves, given that he has issued fewer pardons than any recent two-term president. But everybody has their favorite candidate. Even this guy: “I hope he pardons Scooter [Libby],” | Read More »
A Plea to the President
More than two years after they were sentenced, former Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean still sit in federal prison for their actions in attempting to apprehend a drug runner who was smuggling 743 pounds of marijuana valued at $1.2 million from Mexico into the United States. To protect them from prison gangs eager to attack law enforcement officers, the Bureau of Prisons | Read More »
Holder not in Hillary’s league on pardoning terrorists
Originally published by Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report Once again the Stupid Party seems to determine to miss another opportunity to score endurable political points against the Vile Party by playing the conventional wisdom beltway games. The conservative chattering classes have decided that the best cabinet nominee for a show trial to rough up the new President, is his choice for Attorney | Read More »
Screw Obama. Pardon Everybody.
Obama refuses to rule out investigating crimes by Bush administration officials. This is precisely what I was blogging about the other day. Obama’s most dangerous game — a leftist intelligence and war agenda — will see the intelligence community collapse and American citizens die. By his unwillingness to use definitive language against prosecution of Bush administration officials, Barack Obama puts in jeopardy the future successes | Read More »
January Presidential To-Do List: Pardon Van Diepen, Fingar, and Brill…Then Fire Them
As fate would have it, the current month in the greatest free society the world has ever known will give two men the opportunity to execute the title maneuver. Both should jump at the chance but even the seditious elements within our intelligence community could easily assess “moderate-to-high confidence” that neither will. Shame. Since the names Vann Van Diepen, Thomas Fingar, and Kenneth Brill | Read More »
As The Bush Administration Goes Out The Door . . .
The Arena asks what decisions the Administration may undertake before its departure. The subject quickly got to pardons, which law professor Steven Calabresi prompted. My take can be found near the end of the thread (alas, a direct permalink does not work for weird technical reasons that have to do with the Arena’s end of matters).
