Deborah Leff has a crazy, far-left background and she has a very important job in our government.
Deborah Leff, the new chief attorney of the pardons office, was a DOJ official who headed up Access Initiative which provides the poor with access to legal representation.
In her new position, she will help orchestrate the release of drug offenders under a presidential pardon that unconstitutionally bypasses Congress and will mass release hundred to thousands of prisoners, most of whom were convicted of drug crimes.
According to MSNBC, she has devoted her career to championing fair sentencing, serving low income Americans and feeding the poor. She will give a totally different perspective to an office that granted few pardons.
She served as president of the Joyce Foundation, an education reform and anti-gun activist group, in the 1990’s. Obama served on the Board with her from 1994 to 2002.
Leff, according to World Net Daily, once sat on a panel with Bernadine Dohrn for a gun control discussion at the American Bar Association in Chicago. Bernadine Dohrn is the unrepentant domestic terrorist and wife of Bill Ayers, the head of the terrorist group, The Weather Underground. Ayers called his group “The American Red Army”. Dohrn was once the most wanted woman in America.
You can’t make this stuff up.
As president of the Joyce Foundation, Leff provided the capital to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, Ayers education reform group, which concentrates on making radical activists out of students.
Obama worked with terrorist Bill Ayers at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge and was appointed chairman of the organization’s board in 1995.
Obama put it on his resume.
Leff is the one who recommended Obama to serve as chairman of the Annenberg Challenge.
Along with Leff, Ayers was in a working group of five people who assembled the initial board of the CAC (Chicago Annenberg Challenge), which hired Obama. Ayers found the Challenge and it’s unlikely a new hire would have been approved without Ayers okay. In 2008, Obama’s presidential campaign denied that Ayers was connected to the recruitment of Barack Obama but archived records from the CAC proved otherwise.
Barack Obama and Bill Ayers must have worked closely since Obama handled the fiscal matters while Ayers shaped educational reform.
While Obama served on the Board, they gave $600,000 to an organization founded by Bill Ayers and run by Mike Klonsky, head of the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party which was officially recognized by China as the U.S. Maoist Party.
The Annenberg Challenge granted money to far-left causes, ACORN being one of them.
While Ayers was setting off bombs, he was famous for saying he didn’t regret it and felt he didn’t do enough. Another famous quote of his: “Kill all the rich people. … Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents.”
In his memoir, “Fugitive Days”, Ayers boasted that he “participated in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, of the Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972.”
According to Discover the Networks, in a book he co-authored with Bernadine Dohrn and Jeff Jones titled, “Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism”, Ayers said:
- “Our intention is to disrupt the empire, to incapacitate it, to put pressure on the cracks, to make it hard to carry out its bloody functioning against the people of the world, to join the world struggle, to attack from the inside.”
- “We need a revolutionary communist party in order to lead the struggle, give coherence and direction to the fight, seize power and build the new society.”
- “Socialism is the total opposite of capitalism/imperialism. It is the rejection of empire and white supremacy. Socialism is the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie, the establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and the eradication of the social system based on profit.”
After years on the lam for taking part in a dozen bombings, Ayers and Dohrn were freed on a technicality.
Ayers introduced Obama to the political world with a fundraiser in his l(Ayers) iving room. Obama was a member of the New Party, a socialist party, prior to this.
There is strong evidence that Bill Ayers wrote Obama’s memoir, Dreams From My Father.
Barack Obama has never explained his ties to Bill Ayers except to disingenuously state he didn’t know of his past and was only an eight-year old child when the bombings took place.
Ms. Leff will be in charge of screening the criminals who will be eligible for pardons under Obama’s guidelines. The drug laws were stricter at the time the felons were convicted and there are wrongs that need to be rectified. Congress was working on just such a bill at the time Obama announced his plan.
It is not Mr. Obama’s role to decide what laws he will enforce but he is doing exactly that.
Using the power of the pardon to release as many as two thousand prisoners amounts to the rewriting of drug laws without going through Congress because Mr. Obama has unilaterally decided they are unfair. He is completely lawless.
He is also soft on crime. With Ms. Leff’s appointment, he has made that obvious.
Hundreds to thousands of prisoners will be eligible for a pardon under the new guidelines. The guidelines for the pardons are broad and could end up sending some thugs back to the streets. Many of the people pardoned, while supposedly non-violent, copped pleas and were guilty of more serious crimes than those for which they were sentenced.
