Obama's Carceral Reform Neglects Unemployment

Nixak*77* • 3 hours ago
So Obama finally fakes like he's interested in prison reform, 5 YRS after Michelle Alexander's 'The New Jim Crow', & the Fed law that cut the crack to powder coke penalty disparity from 100 to 1 to 'just' 20 to 1. Yet when that law went into effect, Obama & his then AG Holder, went to court to KEEP folks locked-up who could have / should have gotten out based on the new law's guide-lines!
- So 'Con'-Currently Obama 'progressive' sycophant point-man Van Jones, is hooking-up w the KOCH BROS & NEWT GRINCH-WITCH over the issue of mass [Black] Incarceration. IMO this is like slave-owning Tom Jefferson's 'ironically' proposed so-called 'anti-slavery' clause in the Declaration of Independence [slave-owner Jefferson's real motive was to try to 'indict' the Brits over slavery]

FYI: The Koch Bros have been in Bed w ALEC for sometime. ALEC is responsible for writing many of the state laws that fueled the US' mass Black incarceration regime. And IMO the Koch Bros are likely 'well' invested in private prison corps [the Koch Bros' spokesman on DN! made this curious assertion: 'Charles Koch and David Koch are Classical LIBERALS who believe in expansive individual liberties in the Bill of Rights and limited government.' - see @ ]. Then there's thinly disguised racist Dixiecrat [now Nixon-Reagan Repug] Newt Grinch-witch's history of working in bi-partisanship w Slick Willy in the 1990s to fuel the prison industrial complex via the 'War on Drugs', doubling-down on the 100 to 1 crack vs powder coke laws, 3 strikes laws, etc [all of which mainly snared Black & Brown Folk]... And lets not forgot how Grinch-witch teamed up again w Slick Willy for Welfare Deform -&- then again w Obama's Sec of Ed Arne Duncan [along w Rev Al] for {mis}'Education [of the Negro] Deform'. Of course all of this worked / works synergistically to fuel the US mass imprisonment state. Also note the US' modern mass Black Incarceration state, is a direct response to the Black Freedom struggle of the 1960s & 70s- Mr Eddie Conway is a living testament to that fact.

The ONE ex-prisoner on the above linked DN! show, talked about how much more humane the EU's prison system is compared to the US' [he recently visited a German prison]. When he told the head of that German prison that he spent 7 YRS in Solitary, the chief was flabbergasted! [FYI: Mr Conway's 'Angola-3' BPP comrades spent as many as +40YRS in solitary]! Such treatment [= TORTURE] is virtually unheard of in Europe. But what was NOT discussed enough on this DN! show, is the long embedded RACIST Nature of the US Criminalize {in}'Justice' system- including its prisons [half of US prisoners are Black & another 1/5th to 1/4th are Hispanic]. IMO This alone explains why the EU treats its prisoners so much more humanely than the US does.

So the question remains why is Obama & Van Jones NOW all of a sudden talking about this issue. And why are they teaming-up w the likes of the Koch Bros & Grinch-witch to supposedly address it!!! IMO after watching the Obama-Duncan '{neo}'Liberal' Dims' RTTT work in tandem w the Bush Jr ['compassionate-conservative'] Repugs' NCLB, in the name of {mis}'Education [of the Negro] Deform' - Instinct tells me there's likely some BS in this game!!!
PS: We Know the 'Liberal' Koch Bros Certainly Got TONS of $$$, & Obama-Billary type 'Liberal' Corp DLC Dims, the NAACP & IMO even Van Jones type 'progressives', don't mind 'courting favor' w the likes of Koch Bros & their ilk, to try to get their hands on some of that $$$!!!

The Koch Bros seem to be running a PR Offensive [scam?] re: the Black community, by throwing some of their $$$ to the NAACP, Historically Black Colleges, etc. So now they've hooked-up w the likes of Obama 'progressive' sycophant Van Jones & put on their 'compassionate-conservative' / classic 'Liberal' face re mass [Black] incarceration. Rich Elites ala the Koch Bros, 'Wiz Kid' Bill Gates & Their ILK- Know spreading several 1000$ here, a few 100,000$ there, a couple Million$ now & then, buys a 'Whole Lotta LOVE'!!!
