MSNBC Declares:'Whitey Found Guilty'

Black folks everywhere exclaim: "It's about time!"

A screenshot taken during Touré's MSNBC show The Cycle, bearing the official announcement "Whitey found guilty," has been floating around the Internet.

Condemned for years in the public eye by citizens, activists and entertainers, Whitey was convicted today of first-degree hoodwinking and bamboozling. The fruits of our ancestors' labor have finally paid off. There is no word yet on how black America will be celebrating, but we anticipate months of block parties, parades and re-enactments of the "A Brand New Day" performance from The Wiz.

Wait ... this just in: The "Whitey" in question was actually Whitey Bulger, notorious Boston mobster. We saw the picture and noticed the look on Touré's face and just assumed that it meant ... you know.

Anyway, Twitter had a jolly good time with this screenshot. Check out some of the giggles below, and send our regards to the person on the production team who made all this possible.

WASHINGTON —

— In a sign of growing disenchantment with the war on drugs, conservatives joined Democrats and reform advocates Monday in praising Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.'s declaration that it was time to rethink get-tough policies that have tied the hands of judges and swollen the populations of federal prisons.

The nation's top law enforcement officer, decrying the "moral and human costs" of mass incarceration, said he would instruct federal prosecutors to change the way they charge some drug offenders to avoid triggering "mandatory minimum" sentencing laws that have significantly boosted sentences.

The federal prison population has exploded, even as populations in state prisons have declined steadily.

"The course we are on is far from sustainable," Holder said, speaking to the American Bar Association in San Francisco. "As the so-called 'war on drugs' enters its fifth decade, we need to ask whether it, and the approaches that comprise it, have been truly effective."

Holder also said the department would increase efforts to find alternatives to incarceration and to smooth the compassionate release of severely ill prisoners who are no longer a threat to the public.

It's not yet clear what effect the changes to mandatory minimum sentencing will have in Maryland. Baltimore State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein and Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott D. Shellenberger both noted that in Maryland, federal authorities typically pursue cases involving large and violent drug rings.

Bernstein said that in Maryland, prosecutors can try to pursue mandatory minimum sentences under state law but that his office only does so if the defendant has a history of violence or is facing charges of violence. The mandatory minimum sentences allowed under state law call for 10 years in prison if a defendant has one prior felony drug conviction, 25 years for two prior felony drug convictions and 40 years for three prior felony drug convictions.

Still, Bernstein said Holder's announcement reflects shifts in attitudes in how to best address drug offenses.

"The United States has one of the highest incarceration rates in the world, which is primarily the result of the so-called War on Drugs," Bernstein said. "I think people are starting to look at this and ask whether there's a better way to deal with these kind of offenses."

Caught you in another lie Carol! No one was hired to build anything. Those building had been around for decades. The idea was for the private sector firm to manage and maintain them but as I pointed out before there just wasn't enough money to do the job. The government was giving the job to the private sector you nitwit. Isn't the conservative mantra "privatization"? Yes we are getting dilapidated fool, because your precious GOP doesn't want to fund needed repairs to our infrastructure. You're an idiot Carol!
What I said was Obama coauthored an Illinois law for affordable housing using federal subsidies to give developers a lot of money. Thousands of apartments in Chicago were built with local, state and federal subsidies including several hundred in Obama's district that were deteriorated so completely that they were no longer habitable.

Remember Tony Rezko?

Tony Rezko was an important fund-raiser for Obama and even helped Obama buy a home in 2005 under shady circumstances.

Rezko's company used those same government subsidies to rehabilitate at least 1000 apartments, mostly in Obama's district, then refused to manage the units and leaving the buildings to decay to the point where many no longer were habitable.

Six prominent developers - including Valerie Jarrett and Tony Rezko - contributed to Obama's campaigns raising hundreds of thousands of dollars, but their "affordable housing" apartments were seized by the government after city inspectors found more than 1800 code violations.

Rezko is in prison. Jarrett is now the power behind the throne.

Welcome to Obama's vision for America.

Republican infighting helps the democrats

Obamacare

The other battle is about defunding Obamacare. Led by Sens. Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, the GOP insurgents are threatening to shut down the government on Oct. 1 if the stopgap funding bill contains money for Obamacare.

This is nuts. The president will never sign a bill defunding the singular achievement of his presidency. Especially when he has control of the Senate. Especially when, though a narrow majority (51 percent) of Americans disapprove of Obamacare, only 36 percent favor repeal.

Every fiscal showdown has redounded against the Republicans. The first, in 1995, effectively marked the end of the Gingrich revolution. The latest, last December, led to a last-minute Republican cave that humiliated the GOP and did nothing to stop the tax hike it so strongly opposed.

Those who fancy themselves tea party patriots fighting a sold-out cocktail-swilling establishment are demanding yet another cliff dive as a show of principle and manliness. But there's no principle at stake here. This is about tactics. If I thought this would work, I would support it. But I don't fancy suicide. It has a tendency to be fatal.

As for manliness, the real question here is sanity. Nothing could better revive the fortunes of a failing, flailing, fading Democratic administration than a government shutdown where the president is portrayed as standing up to the GOP on honoring our debts and paying our soldiers in the field.

How many times must we learn the lesson? You can't govern from one house of Congress. You need to win back the Senate and then the presidency. Shutting down the government is the worst possible way to get there. Indeed, it's Obama's fondest hope for a Democratic revival.

No president in history has been as dumb as O'bama: Evolving Al-Qaeda More Dangerous Than Ever

Al-Qaeda has successfully evolved into a franchise organization under the leadership of Ayman al-Zawahiri, making the terrorist organization even more dangerous and more difficult to track. Since the killing of Osama bin Laden on May 2, 2011, al-Qaeda has decentralized and improved financing methods, attack approaches and communication techniques to counter new intelligence efforts. The group is responsible for four times as many terrorist attacks today as it was before the Sept.11, 2001, attacks. Al-Qaeda is still aiming to establish an Islamic caliphate, and is establishing training camps around the world toward that end.
