My latest piece for LifeZette: “Obama’s Last Radical Push.”
From the article:
President Obama has only about 3.5 months left in his administration — but don’t be fooled. He still has plenty of time to do lots of damage. Obama just ceded U.S. government control over the internet by relinquishing Commerce Department oversight of ICANN, which keeps track of website addresses and names. That is only the beginning of his late fourth-quarter drive for the presidential legacy end zone.
Among the perils the lie ahead:
Get Out of Jail Free Cards:
Obama will retain the power of the pardon until the moment Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton says “So help me God” on the steps of the Capitol Jan. 20, and it’s certain he intends to use it. Before his presidency is over, hundreds of convicted drug felons will have had their sentences commuted.
We know that, because hundreds already have. On Aug. 3, Obama granted clemency to 214 inmates — a single-day record. That made for a total of 562 for his presidency, more than the nine previous presidents combined, according to The Washington Post. Most were drug dealers, and 67 were serving life sentences.
Read about the rest of the damage Obama can do, as I describe over at LifeZette.
