President Barack Obama's executive orders are getting more ridiculous the longer he stays in office. His latest "initiative" calls for the release of over 6,000 criminals from federal prisons over the next few days.

In a speech at Rutgers University on Tuesday, Obama explained that he is releasing 6,000 career criminals back onto the streets to right a social wrong through his "criminal justice reform" program.

Obama told Rutgers students that there are too many criminals in prisons that are "disproportionately black and Latino."

Obama claims the 6,000 federal criminals are "non-violent" offenders who simply need "a second chance" to prove they can be productive citizens.

To ease their transition back into society, Obama issued another executive order: banning government employers and federal contractors from asking criminals if they have ever been convicted of any crime… ever.

That means if a "non-violent" sex offender seeks employment at a government daycare center, the daycare center can't ask the applicant if he has ever been convicted of a sex-related crime.

Or if a "non-violent" crackhead applies at a government pharmacy or hospital -- where narcotics are plentiful -- the hospital can't ask the applicant if he or she has ever been convicted of a drug-related offense.

    These offenses are not things like rape and murder. If I remember correctly when I was in Philly at his speech, this is for drug offenses.

    Applauding!!!! Hopefully this will give "our men" the leg up they need to get some of our communities and children on the right track. I'm rooting for these brothers, because I'm certain more than half are black.

  • Jusstlookn2

    Sandra, the non-violent sex offender and crackhead examples you used really points out that Obama doesn't think anything through and the negative consequences that can happen.

    Washington (CNN)The
    White House and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took turns lambasting
    each others' records on criminal justice Monday, as President Barack
    Obama traveled to Christie's state to promote new initiatives to
    rehabilitate former prison inmates.

    Speaking
    on CNN's "New Day," Christie claimed his own policing reforms in the
    Garden State had led to falling murder rates, adding later Obama "has
    not supported law enforcement in this country."

    Christie later said Obama was attempting to take credit for reforms he wasn't party to. "All of these criminal justice reforms, none of them are his," Christie told
    reporters outside Camden, New Jersey, suggesting Obama was taking a
    "victory lap" at Integrity House, a drug rehabilitation center and
    halfway house in Newark the president stopped at Monday.

    Speaking aboard Air Force One, White House press secretary Josh Earnest countered that Christie was simply seeking to elevate his standing in the 2016 GOP primary contest, where he's currently running near the backof a crowded field of candidates.

    "Gov.Christie's comments in this regard have been particularly
    irresponsible, but not surprising for somebody whose poll numbers are
    close to an asterisk," Earnest said. "Clearly this is part of his
    strategy for turning that around. We'll see if it works."

    In Newark, Obama made his latest push for criminal justice reform, which has become a key domestic priority for the White House. The new actions include "banning the box" requiring applicants to disclose their
    criminal background on job applications at federal agencies.

    At Integrity House, Obama met with a former inmate and staff at the
    residential facility. Later he participated in a roundtable on prisoner
    re-entry into society at Rutgers University, where he addressed the
    hardships former inmates face when applying for jobs.

    "That's bad not only for those individuals, but for our economy," he said.
    "It's bad for those communities that desperately need more role models
    who are gainfully employed. We've got to make sure Americans who have paid their debt to society can earn their second chance."

    The White House Monday announced new actions to promote rehabilitation and reintegration, including $8 million in education grants from the Department of Education and tech training and jobs for individuals with a criminal record.

    Obama is also calling on Congress to "ban the box" on federal job applications that requires job applicants to state if they have a criminal record.

    "Each year, more than 600,000 individuals are released from state and federal prisons," the White House said in a statement. "Advancing policies and programs that enable these men and women to put their lives back on track and earn their second chance promotes not only justice and fairness, but also public safety."

    The Federal Bureau of Prisons announced in October that they would grant early release to about 6,000 inmates between October 30 and November 2.

    The prisoners have served an average of nine years and were due to be
    released in about 18 months, according to a Justice Department official.
    Many were already in half-way houses.

    This is the latest push for criminal just reform from the Obama
    administration. In July, Obama became the first sitting president to
    visit a federal prison and met with six inmates.

    Obama told NBC's Lester Holt in an exclusive interview clip airing Monday that he's proud of the work he's been able to do on behalf of racial injustice, but said it must continue under the next president.

    "I am very proud that my presidency can help to galvanize and mobilize
    America on behalf of issues of racial disparity and racial injustice,"
    he told NBC's Holt. "But I do so hoping that my successor, who's not
    African-American -- if he or she is not -- that they'll be just as
    concerned as I am. Because this is part of what it means to perfect our
    union."

  • Jusstlookn2

    Yeah , ain't that some straight BS

  • Nik

    Often minority kids that should be placed in the standard or accelerated tracks are put in special ed/resource tracks if they misbehave. As you said, they are pegged early on so even if they improve, the tendency is to keep them on the same track. The result is a child who has potential is not challenged to rise to it and is mistaken about his/her abilities. If parents don't get involved to make sure children are being properly served, that is what happens. In urban schools a lot of parents are not as involved as they should or could be, so their kids get lost in the system before they even know what the heck it is.

  • Monday

    Basically the government plan is to increase crime in certain citied neighborhood by giving back to the hood the criminals we were trying to get off these streets.

    Who ever comes after him will not be starting from the bottom IMO because he has laid the foundation for some positive changes. If it is a republican (GOD HELP US) they will slap a new name on it and call it theirs. The changes he has made to healthcare, although incomplete, this alone will put him in the history books. In addition no matter how haters try to spin it, President Obama took steps that saved our economy. Lastly, I am NY4EVER, no matter where I live and it was Barack Obama who gave the order to take Osama Bin Laden out, so if he never does another thing...He's good with me.

  • Jusstlookn2

    Well I blame the parent for this. No teacher or school can place your child anywhere unless you sign off on it.

  • SandrasNewFave

    You hit it on the head. My son's PREschool told me to have him checked for ADHD. Nope. He excelled in elementary school when he learned more than to recite shyt he already knew. Once that got boring, he was promoted to helping a special needs boy. He needed to be challenged not disciplined.

  • Jusstlookn2

    They will never be able to change the changes that when into affect in relation to Affordable Care Act aka Obama Care.

    It has saved millions of lives and created thousands of positions government hierarchy surrounded around healthcare. All positions created by a law CREATED BY A BLACK MAN. President Obama.

  • Nik

    Exactly. There are teachers who have a disconnect from black male students for two primary reasons: those "educators" are not from the same demographic and their ignorance of their challenges result in discriminatory practices. The culture in some schools is to not place any real effort in black male students because it's wasted. You have a lot of promising students who are being dismissed. I used to teach young men who were former felons and they all come in with their chest out and chip on their shoulder. When I show them that I believe they matter and point out their strengths that they can flip for good, that's when they open up to a new way of doing things. A lot of them think they can't because that's all they've seen or have been told.

  • Jusstlookn2

    Well of course they will, but that will not be case. Those are the same ones that think that Affordable Care Act and Obama Care are two different things.

  • Nik

    All of these labels are a way to demarcate kids who are assumed to not be worth the school's effort. The education system is often like prison where inmates who are thought to not have anyone on the outside care about them are targeted. Same with students. If it appears that they have uninvolved parents, decisions are made that could impact them for life without protest. Some parents have no idea how much power they have. A principal's worst nightmare is an involved parent.

  • Auditor

    Nope state

  • SandrasNewFave

    Definitely. But sometimes they try to be insistent and get their "experts" in on it. I had a PREschool psych tell me my son was acting out (not wanting to come in from recess) because his father had returned in the picture. Talmbout the boy felt threatened by the male presence. BICTH you saying that cause we black. If the daddy was gone you would say that was the issue.
    Yes the parent must sign off but some folks don't have the fight on quick defenses. *I ain't that type tho.

    I hear what you're saying. What I meant by the "bottom" is being expected to work miracles only to find the unrealistic expectations that were placed upon President Obama will transfer to them.

    I believe it. I've observed classrooms where the teachers spend the whole time yelling. What's interesting is that some people are in the secondary and primary ed systems because they couldn't find their dream job. That results in uncommitted educators and underserved students.

After that, you're back to 'phuck the world' or I'm the best team player when I work alone. Yep, that.

    These criminals were locked up for a reason. Leave it to Obama to let them out so they can go right back to their criminal ways and end up back in prison. It's called recidivism. Obama should look up the word.

  • Jusstlookn2

    Well you be more persistent and find a local agency that advocates for the student. They are available and if your child has a IEP, it's in your child's best interest to have one. They will try and label and tell you to give you child all these meds. All they school and teacher is thinking about it Billy and Sue. Your insurance will pay to get your son "tested" if that what you think is needed. Don't let them tell you anything or convince you. If you child needs example language therapy.

    Agreed, but what makes me angry is President Obama was the Black scapegoat who wasn't given a chance from day one. I don't agree with everything he has done but I have seen previous presidents do worse and yet were respected, defended and praised until this day. When his term is up we will go back to "being president is a hard job" but for now he is supposed to be a miracle worker.

    FALN – commuted the sentences of 16 members of FALN, a violent Puerto Rican terrorist group that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. The 16 were convicted of conspiracy and sedition and sentenced with terms ranging from 35 to 105 years in prison.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Thanks to Obama we are looking at $20 TRILLION dollar national debt when he leaves office. Obama spent $40 million to drop 50 tons of ammunition to rebels in Syria last month. Then there's the $43 million he spent building a single gas station in Afghanistan. According to CNN, "The Department of Defense claims that it is unable to provide an explanation for the high cost." Oh, and the $500 million that Obama spent to "train" Syrian rebels, yet only 5 of those rebels actually saw any action. He's a blessing alright.

  • mzwhang90210

    They will find a way to trace the blame BACK to Pres Obama.
    The man did the best he could with what he was given. But his detractors are to obtuse to see that.

  • mzwhang90210

    Exactly. And as I said earlier...even after President Obama leaves office...I bet he's gonna be blamed for stuff...for years to come.
    The new POTUS will get 1-2 yrs of "pardons"...cuz folks will STILL be blaming Pres O.

    I work for the state government.... Employers in the state and federal level can't put that question on the application or ask you in the interview about a criminal past. However child molesters that have been convicted would NOT work at a daycare because a background check is still permissible for any job that requires it. We all have been briefed.... and in the postings for jobs it can clearly state a satisfactory background check is required. A person with misdemeanors and felonies can work for the government but not in every position.

    And may I add, the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare will soon implode causing more economic disaster for us. Remember no one in congress or Obama read the Obamacare law, that's the dumbest thing ever when a law that huge will affect and has affected (negatively) so many people. Obama's presidency has been a complete disaster. I voted for him his first term, but soon could tell about a year in he was all talk, spineless and care more about the fame than solving our country's issues. Let's not forget he and the Dems had control of both houses his first term but squandered that advantage.

  • Junkanoo

    College should be free not for profit to ensure poverty is not so pervasive for countless people.

  • Maccabees Apocrypha

    Obama was just a mascot for the white PTB to make the leadership of a black person look worst than the leadership of that dumb-Fool called george bush....when last did you hear any cave devil or coon speak about the horrible leadership of george bush?

    If in 2015, you still think this country's PTB (white people) think of you as anything more than 3/5ths of a man/human, then you are just asking for major disappointment/destruction...

    ***notice how verse 8 says: IN GOD WE BOAST ALL DAY LONG***

    President Obama is not the first President to do this very same thing although people act like everything President Obama does is just so out of the norm ..

    generally federal inmates are convicted of money and drug crimes. Embezzlers, fraud, and of course drugs. the list of sex/child offenders isn't usually that long like state facilities. Also the inmates have more than likely served 10-20 years already. these are cases from the late 80's and early 90's when minimum mandatory sentences were being handed out starting at 10 years +

  • sheilapete

    WHEN IT COMES TO A CRIME AGAINST A CHILD HIS RECORD SHOULD BE CHECKED. THEY NEED TO ASK FOR CRIMINAL BACK GROUND CHECKS. FOR NON VIOLENT CRIMES. I AGREE WITH OBAMA ON THAT ONE. A PERSON SHOULD BE GIVEN A SECOND CHANCE. WASTED TAX DOLLARS.
