Yonkers man busted with enough
heroin to get all of NYC high
gets 14 years in prison

WPIX-TV [New York, NY], by Aliza Chazan

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 10/11/2017 2:34:57 PM

New York — A drug dealer who was busted with enough heroin to get every single person in New York City high was sentenced to 14 years in prison. Authorities seized 70 kilograms of heroin and $2 million when they arrested Jose ‘Hippie’ Mercedes in May of 2015. The drugs, with a street value of $50 million, was the largest heroin seizure in the city’s history. Despite the large amount, officials called the 70 kilograms seized just “the tip of the iceberg.” Mercedes ran a heroin network from Mexico to New York, court documents show. He distributed hundreds of kilograms of heroin

Comments:
Drug kingpin gets only 14 years. Any wonder why poor street kids go into the lucrative drug trade? Maybe Jose ‘Hippie’ Mercedes got a light sentence because of his valuable contribution to reducing our national trade imbalance with Mexico.

This guy should have gotten 99yrs with no parole. What do you have to do in New York to get serious jail time?

Here´s applicable song, "The Pusher," written by Hoyt Axton and performed by Steppenwolf in 1968 on their first album. John Kay sings. Content Warning: One repeated bad word. I agree with sentiment of both songwriter and singer.

A jail sentence of 14 years in NY means he only has to serve 20% of the time, which means he´ll be back on the street in roughly 2 years.

There should be truth in sentencing and drug trafficers should be prosecuted under murder statutes.

After heavy pressure from lawmakers and other stakeholders, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt on Thursday night sided with pro-ethanol lawmakers and said his agency will abandon many controversial changes to the nation’s ethanol mandate — prompting a top biofuels leader to claim that Mr. Pruitt apparently has had an “epiphany” over the past few days. In a letter to seven key senators, Mr. Pruitt — who had been critical of ethanol during his time as Oklahoma attorney general — shot down several major concerns about looming adjustments to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), the federal law that requires the blending of

Donald Trump suggested in tweets early on Wednesday that former FBI director James Comey had decided to spare Hillary Clinton from prosecution “long before investigation was complete” into her government email practices, calling the process “a fix”. “FBI confirms report that James Comey drafted letter exonerating Crooked Hillary Clinton long before investigation was complete,” Trump tweeted, continuing, “Many people not interviewed, including Clinton herself. Comey stated under oath that he didn’t do this-obviously a fix? Where is Justice Dept?” Trump was referring to documents released by the FBI on Monday which show that Comey had composed a draft entitled: “Drafts of

The head of MI5 today warned Britain is facing the biggest terror threat of his 34 year career - as he said tech giants have an ´ethical responsibility´ to crack down on extremists. Andrew Parker said extremists are mounting deadly terror attacks with just a few days of planning as the UK sees a ´dramatic´ jump in the scale and pace of the threat. In his annual ´state of the union´ assessment of the threat facing the UK, he said extremists are exploiting ´safe spaces´ online, hindering intelligence efforts to root them out. And he issued a fresh challenge to technology firms,

Philadelphia — When U.S. Sen. John McCain was a younger man, once or twice he was tasked with carrying Joe Biden´s luggage. On Monday, after Biden, the former U.S. vice president, awarded McCain with the National Constitution Center´s Liberty Medal, McCain was sure to let everyone know he hadn´t forgotten. "I´ve resented it ever since," McCain said on the lawn of the Philadelphia museum as he accepted the award for his lifetime of sacrifice and service to the country.

Trump opens door to welfare reform
Washington Times, by S.A. Miller    Original Article

President Trump said Monday that he’s eyeing another major government reform — this time tackling welfare. He said some recipients are taking advantage of public assistance while others in need don’t get it. “We are looking very, very strongly therefore at welfare reform,” Mr. Trump told reporters at the start of a Cabinet meeting at the White House. The mention of welfare reform was unexpected. He rarely mentioned the topic during the campaign and has been consumed with other ambitious plans since taking office. Mr. Trump is currently trying to push a major tax-code overhaul through Congress, a huge undertaken

Mogadishu, Somalia — The most powerful bomb blast ever witnessed in Somalia´s capital killed 276 people with around 300 others injured, the country´s information minister said early Monday, making it the deadliest single attack in this Horn of Africa nation. The toll was expected to rise. In a tweet, Abdirahman Osman called the attack "barbaric" and said countries including Turkey and Kenya had already offered to send medical aid.

Lost in the uproar over the NFL sideline protests against police brutality are newly released statistics showing that the threat to black men is skyrocketing — not from trigger-happy or racist cops, but from crime. More than any other demographic group, black men are paying the price with their lives with a surging violent crime rate over the past two years, including a 20 percent jump in the overall homicide rate, even as the number of blacks killed by police declines. Using homicide figures from the 2016 FBI Uniform Crime Report released Sept. 25, Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald

A 39-year-old man in the country illegally pleaded guilty Thursday to causing a traffic crash that killed a Johnson County sheriff’s deputy last year. Adrian Espinosa-Flores, 39, pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless second-degree murder in the death of Master Deputy Brandon Collins. Collins was killed on Sept. 11, 2016, while conducting a traffic stop on U.S. 69 just north of 151st Street in Overland Park. Collins’ patrol vehicle was parked when a pickup truck driven by Espinosa-Flores ran into the back of Collins’ vehicle, pushing it into the SUV that the deputy had pulled over.

Bowe Bergdahl, the Army deserter who walked off his base in Afghanistan, is whining that the US treated him worse than the Taliban. The 31-year-old sergeant told British TV journalist Sean Langan in an interview reported in The Sunday Times of London: “At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat.’ ” That got him less upset than the “administrative duties” the Army assigned him while awaiting trial, he said. “Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for

Perhaps as startling as the revelation that the FBI was investigating the Hillary Clinton/Russia/Uranium One collusion and that key figures like Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe knew about it and said nothing, is the refusal by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to remove the non-disclosure agreement gag order on the FBI informant who arguably could put Bill and Hillary Clinton and a few others in federal prison.

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has completed his one-week sex rehab program. A psychologist taking part in his treatment told TMZ that Weinstein would remain in Arizona for a month or so after his week of outpatient ´intensive therapy´ ends on Saturday. Weinstein was ´invested in the program´ and had focused on ´dealing with his anger, his attitude toward others, boundary work and the beginnings of work on empathy,´ the psychologist told the outlet with Weinstein´s permission. The psychologist downplayed previous reports that the 65-year-old film producer had fallen asleep in group sessions and ranted about conspiracy theories. ´He showed up for all the

Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 — before Donald Trump entered the race — was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering. The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark Penn estimates that just $6,500 went to actual electioneering. (You read that right: 65 hundred dollars.) By

Barack Obama claimed at a campaign rally on Thursday for Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam that “democracy is at stake” in the Virginia governor’s race. Obama took to his first day back on the campaign trail to lament the way politics has turned “nasty,” and yet Obama melodramatically argued that Virginians need to vote for Democrat Ralph Northam because “democracy is at stake.” Obama told the Virginia audience, “America is a story of progress. Ralph Northam wants progress. He wants to take us forward, not backward. He wants to reach out for hope, not fear. We need you to

n Monday, Sen. John McCain denounced President Trump’s philosophy, agenda, and conduct. On Thursday, former President George W. Bush did the same thing. Neither mentioned Trump by name, but their target was clear. They echoed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who spoke out against Trump last year. These three indictments, issued by the men who represented the GOP in the four elections leading up to Trump’s, are more than ghosts of a dead party. They point toward an alternative vision of conservatism.

A plan to quadruple the size of the Alamo with a major restoration project has been attacked by conservatives over worries its history will be sanitized. At a time when Confederate statues are being removed across the country, some Texans are fearing the battle site will become the latest victim of ´political correctness´. Land Commissioner George P. Bush - son of former Florida governor Jeb - is overseeing a 7-year revamp of the shrine where 189 Texas independence fighters were killed by Mexican Gen. Santa Anna´s troops in 1836.
