THEI Supports Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP)

Dear Supporter:

We recently celebrated the anniversary of a very significant day in reform movement history. December 5, 2013 marked the 80th anniversary of Repeal Day, on which alcohol prohibition was repealed and the 21st Amendment, regulating the legal sale of alcohol, was ratified. For all of us at Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, Repeal Day represents the attainability of our goal: ending the more enduring, infinitely more harmful and complex policy of drug prohibition. It’s incredible how far the drug policy reform movement has come just in the past year or two, and our success is owed to supporters like you.

This has been an outstanding year for LEAP. Let’s take a look at some of LEAP’s 2013 achievements by the numbers:

LEAP banner Website

 

788,290. Number of views to date of LEAP co-founder Captain Peter Christ’s YouTube video, “Retired Police Captain Demolishes the War on Drugs.” The video first went viral in March, and since then, viewers all over the world have contacted LEAP about Peter’s common sense argument for ending drug prohibition.

54,293. Number of signatures to date on LEAP’s Change.org petition since its launch in August. LEAP petitioned Attorney General Eric Holder, asking the Department of Justice to Stop Funding Racially Biased Marijuana Arrests.

36,680. Number of dollars LEAP supporters contributed to finance the production of a documentary film about LEAP leading 2012’s Caravan for Peace. In just 45 days, LEAP’s crowdfunding campaign, “Cops Lead Drug War Victims on a Journey for Peace,” drew enough interest to surpass our goal and secure the funding we needed to edit and distribute our footage. The film will be released in 2014, and is sure to become an inspiring piece of drug reform history.

More than 1,700.
 Number of LEAP presentations and appearances to date in 2013, including more than 1,000 media appearances and more than 700 in-person presentations. Our 170 speakers have been incredibly busy spreading LEAP’s message of legalization and regulation this year. We’re reaching millions, and we are able to do all that we do because of you, our loyal supporters.

Our speakers are more in-demand than ever, and we have big plans for 2014, including targeted campaigns in a number of states on the verge of legalizing marijuana. We need your help in keeping our momentum rolling. Please make a tax deductible contribution to LEAP today and count yourselfamong those who are an integral part of ending drug prohibition.

Thank you so much for your continued support, and have a wonderful holiday season.

Sincerely,

Major Neill Franklin (Ret.)
Executive Director

THEI Washington Watch ~ NYT: White House Wants Holder to Resign (+) Retro: Rep. Allen West – “Obama, Reid, Pelosi, get the hell out of the USA”

From News Max Sunday, 02 Jun 2013 01:34 PM By Audrey Hudson

Presidential aides are privately admitting to a growing frustration inside the White House with Attorney General Eric Holder’s political ineptness in the press leak investigations and are hoping the embattled appointee will resign from office, The New York Times reports.

“The White House is apoplectic about him, and has been for a long time,” said an anonymous Democrat source, identified only as a former government employee who acknowledged the White House staffers in question are his friends.

President Barack Obama’s advisers are frustrated with Holder’s inability to foresee problems arising from his approval of a subpoena naming a Fox News reporter as a coconspirator in an espionage investigation. Now Congress is looking at whether Holder lied under oath when he testified last month that he knew nothing about the incident. . . . Read Complete Report

IRS CLAIMS RELEASE OF CONSERVATIVE GROUPS’ CONFIDENTIAL INFO TO SOROS-AFFILIATED MEDIA OUTLET ‘INADVERTENT AND UNINTENTIONAL’

The Internal Revenue Service claims thedisclosure of conservative groups’ confidential information to investigative journalism outfit ProPublica was “inadvertent and unintentional.”

After the IRS admitted to deliberately targeting conservative organizations that applied for tax-exempt status, ProPublica reported it had received nine still-pending applications as part of its request for information about 67 nonprofits last year. The pending applications should have remained confidential. . . . Read Complete Report
