by Paul Mirengoff at PowerLine:

“Joseph diGenova, a well-respected former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia,predicted today that Hillary Clinton will be indicted for crimes connected with her use of a private email server for State Department business. He made this prediction on Laura Ingraham’s radio program.

For Hillary to be indicted, the FBI would have to call for an indictment and the Attorney General would have to approve the recommendation. FBI director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch are both Obama appointees.

Comey has a reputation as a straight shooter. In part, that reputation derives from the independence he displayed as a high-ranking Justice Department official during the administration of President George W. Bush.

It’s one thing to be independent under a Republican president and another to be that way in a Democratic administration. The former display will win you loud applause from the mainstream media (indeed, the applause Comey won during the Bush administration is probably what landed him the FBI director’s post under Obama). The latter will make you a villain, which tends to discourage independent conduct. .

On the other hand, Comey has already displayed some independence as FBI director. Moreover, folks I know who worked with Comey before his rise to prominence vouch for his independence and integrity. One friend whose judgment I trust is fairly confident that Comey will play it straight when it comes Hillary Clinton.

Apparently, then, Comey’s statement to a Senate committee that the FBI doesn’t “give a rip about politics” should be taken at face value. And to the extent that the FBI goes where the facts lead, it’s quite possible, for reasons diGenova explained during his interview by Ingraham, that it will seek an indictment.

What about Loretta Lynch, though?”………please continue reading below:

Jason Riley Reviews the Rise of Black Criminality in the US during the Past Half Century

If there is a hero today exposing truth after truth after truth regarding the conditions and development of the collapse of once civilized urban Negro American society over the past half century, it is Jason L. Riley, often a star at Fox Cable news reviews. He is not alone in this stardom.

Made your own lengthy list of today’s living conservative Black/Negro conservative writers-thinkers over the past ten years and more to lift your hopes regarding our American future where truth still matters.

Truth is not a left wing value!!…a truism often repeated by Dennis Prager. In feminist tyrannies, feelings overwhelm truth.

Black Silent Majority: The Rockefeller Drug Laws and the Politics of Punishment, by Michael Javen Fortner (Harvard University Press, 368 pp., $28.81)

Three decades ago, in response to a drug epidemic that was laying waste to urban minority communities from Los Angeles to Miami to New York, Congress passed the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986, which imposed much harsher penalties for crack-cocaine offenses than for crimes involving powder cocaine. For federal sentencing purposes, someone convicted of selling 50 grams of crack was subject to the same mandatory-minimum ten-year sentence as someone convicted of selling 5,000 grams of powder cocaine. This crack/powder disparity was increasingly attacked as racist—crack offenders tended to be black, while powder offenders tended to be white. Never mind that Representatives Charles Rangel and Major Owens, two black liberal Democrats from New York not known for their reluctance to play the race card, led the fight to impose the differential. Never mind that 11 of the 21 black lawmakers serving in Congress in 1986 supported the new law. And never mind that even those black congressmen who opposed it did not do so on grounds that it was racially unfair.

At the time, many black lawmakers and activists saw in crack cocaine a unique threat. The drug was considered more accessible, more addictive, and more closely associated with violent behavior than its powder form. Proponents of the “crackdown on crack” believed that lawful inner-city residents would be better off if crack offenders were locked up for longer periods of time. In other words, the motivating factor was safety, and the resulting racial disparities were incidental. Yet today’s critics of the 1986 law ignore or play down the role of black leaders in its passage and pretend that racial animus drove the effort.

According to Michael Javen Fortner’s urgent and extraordinary new book, Black Silent Majority: The Rockefeller Drug Laws and the Politics of Punishment, this sort of politically expedient revisionism also shapes today’s related debate over the mass incarceration of black men. Fortner responds to best-selling authors like Michelle Alexander, a law professor at Ohio State University, who has argued that a white backlash against the civil rights gains of the 1950s and 1960s led to the utilization of penal policy to restore the old Jim Crow social order of white supremacy. To Alexander and most of the liberal commentariat, mass incarceration has less to do with black criminality and more to do with historical white resistance to racial equality. In their view, prisons are tools of racial subordination. Under the auspices of a war on drugs, a racially biased criminal-justice system targets people simply for being black, not necessarily for breaking the law. Hence the tendency of leftists to obsess over the racial imbalance of the prison population while rarely discussing the racial imbalance among perpetrators of crime—as if the two are wholly unrelated.

Fortner, a political scientist at the City University of New York, challenges this wobbly liberal narrative by detailing the history of black activism that spurred Governor Nelson Rockefeller in the early 1970s to make New York the first state to mandate lengthy prison sentences for drug offenses. Today’s mass-incarceration phenomenon, the author argues, is an outgrowth of Rockefeller drug policies that enjoyed strong support from working- and middle-class blacks who were being terrorized by black criminals.

Ezra Levant Reports on the Marxist Mess Developing in Canada

Dear Glenn,

2015 was a terrible year for conservatives in Canada.

Rachel Notley’s NDP won an accidental victory, and is now using Alberta as a laboratory for every socialist experiment she can think of, from a massive carbon tax to unionizing farms and ranches.

Justin Trudeau won the federal election and has been just as radical. He says he’ll bring in 50,000 poorly-vetted Syrian migrants in 2016 and abandon our NATO allies in the war against terrorism. And he’s promising tax hikes, massive deficits, and a carbon tax of his own.

Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne is so desperate, she’s literally asking taxpayers to voluntarily help pay off her massive debt.

You get the picture. Other than Brad Wall of Saskatchewan, is there anyone on our side fighting back?

But the real problem isn’t elected politicians. It’s everything else — from the left-wing media, to left-wing universities, to left-wing lawyers and judges to left-wing community organizations.

The Conservative Party of Canada will muddle along. They’ll choose a new leader, and hopefully they’ll find some courage. But without the rest of the puzzle pieces — the non-partisan conservative infrastructure — not even a Canadian Ronald Reagan or Margaret Thatcher would stand a chance.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot since the federal election. There’s no quick fix. But we need to start somewhere.

Here’s my plan:

Keep building The Rebel as a counterweight to the left-wing media.

More reporters, more stories, more investigative journalism. We’ll keep telling you the other side of the story that the Media Party doesn’t. In addition to growing The Rebel, I have a new plan I’m calling Rebuild The Right. It has two parts:

1. Change the media culture in Canada, to make it more balanced.

A couple of years ago I launched a non-profit organization called the Joseph Howe Institute, to host an convention for freedom-oriented student journalists. I want to turn it into something much more. I want to:

* create conservative student clubs at every Canadian journalism school

* sponsor internships for young conservative journalists (including at The Rebel)

* host an annual conference, the highlight of which would be a gala awards night for the best Canadian conservative journalism;

* and sponsor special endowments, like an investigative journalism chair at The Rebel

2. Help launch and “incubate” dozens of little conservative NGOs.

Leftist financiers like the Tides Foundation give hundreds of grants to political “start-ups” each year — sometimes thousands of dollars, but sometimes just a few hundred dollars. Many of their grant recipients fail. But over time, many succeed, and they have created a large, grassroots community, all pulling in the same leftist direction.

I have another non-profit, called ForCanada, that I want to turn into a right-wing version of Tides:

* accept applications from conservative political start-ups, and make micro-grants to the best proposals

* help these start-ups, by providing them with administrative support for everything from group insurance to corporate bylaws to websites

* creating a culture of conservative philanthropy, including an annual conference and awards

What do you think? Just before Christmas, I recorded a video to lay out my plan in great detail, including a specific budget. You can watch that videoby clicking here. I then talked about my plan with two conservative veterans, Monte Solberg and Tom Flanagan. You can see their thoughts on it, in that video too.

My detailed plan and my conversation with Monte and Tom takes 45 minutes to watch. If you want the short version, click here for my four-minute summary.

Look: right now things look awful for Canadian conservatives. Because they are. But if we start working now, step by step, we’ll be able to tilt the balance back — in the media, in the community, on campuses, where the fight is going on right now, and our side isn’t there.

Will you help me rebuild the right? I sure can’t do it on my own. But with your help, I think together we can make a real difference.

Please watch the long or the short version of my plan. And if these two non-profit conservative organizations look good to you, please chip in to our warchest, by clicking here, or visiting www.RebuildTheRight.ca

Will you join me, and help me kick-start the plan with a donation of $10, $50 or even $250, by clicking here?

If we start work on this now, I really think we have a chance.

Yours truly,

Ezra Levant

P.S. Some people are depressed by political events. I understand that. But we have a duty as citizens to fight to put our country back on track. It’s a duty not just to ourselves, but to our families and the future. That’s why I’m doing it. Please click here to help!
