Arguably the most corrupt and abusive administration to come down the pike in recent history is now declaring war on American corporations and their predominately white executives in a scheme to separate private-sector entities from their money and imprison more white males. In an announcement on Thursday, a Department of Justice official said her agency will emphasize the prosecution of corporate executives instead of the DOJ practice of simply prosecuting and fining businesses.

Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, who authored a memo outlining the rules for federal prosecutors, announced the updated guidelines during her guest lecture at New York University Law School. She noted that President Barack Obama authorized the Justice Department's new guidelines that will now prioritize the prosecution of individual corporate executives for offenses involving white-collar crime.

"The Obama administration in essence is declaring war on private-sector executives, similar to his war on white police and his war on conservative, pro-life Christians. While the nation's body-count climbs especially in inner-cities, Obama sees men in pin-stripe suits as a threat to Americans. With 94 million Americans reportedly giving up on finding jobs, Obama sees the people who create jobs and hire workers as being the enemy," said a former police captain, now a partner in security firm, Steven Radcliffe.

"Can you image if Obama had such passion for going after corrupt members -- past and present -- of his own administration? Imagine Obama's DOJ leading the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails or demanding the IRS to pursue Rev. Al Sharpton for back-taxes. But now I'm giving into wishful thinking," Radcliffe said.

Until the revised guidelines, DOJ actions targeted the corporations that were forced to make extravagant financial settlements or, if a case went to trial and the DOJ won in court, enormous cash penalties were levied against the targeted company. It's been one of the biggest financial bonanzas for the federal government and a specialty of Democratic politicians.

According to attorney and political strategist Mike Baker, before the shift in strategy, the DOJ would charge a company for some type of crime and proceed to prosecute the targeted firm. Usually, in order to avoid unwanted publicity or expensive legal fees, the company and the DOJ will come to an agreement which usually means millions of dollars being collected by the DOJ.

"Are the companies guilty of unlawful business practices? Sometimes. Is the government seeking justice or seeking a cash-collection conduit? You better believe it's seeking the cash. If the Justice Department used the same strategy to go after corrupt politicians, such as the Bill and Hillary Clinton, Rep. Charles Rangel, Rev. Al Sharpton and others, they might actually cut down on rampant government corruption and abuse. But don't hold your breath for that," said former criminal investigator and corporate security director Lester M. Talmadge.

"It is our obligation at the Justice Department to ensure that we are holding lawbreakers accountable regardless of whether they commit their crimes on the street corner or in the board room," Yates told the audience, most of whom were law professors and their students. "In the white-collar context, that means pursuing not just corporate entities but also the individuals through which these corporations act."

Civil and criminal attorneys should together focus on individuals from the very start of a criminal investigation, Yates' memo stipulates. It also said legal actions will no longer be resolved unless there is a clear plan for legal action against a company's individuals.

A life-long Democrat and Obama supporter, according to her Justice Department bio, "Ms. Yates has spent most of her professional career in public service and has 25 years of prosecutorial experience in the U. S. Attorney’s office. Prior to her appointment as U. S. Attorney, Ms. Yates served as the First Assistant United States Attorney for approximately seven years, and from 1994 to 2002, she was the Chief of the Fraud and Public Corruption Section of the office where she supervised the prosecution of all of the office’s white collar cases."

"I don't know how some will take this but I believe this is a way for the Obama administration to equalize the numbers of whites and blacks being incarcerated. It's no secret that Obama and his fellow Democrats bemoan the number of blacks in our country's prisons and jails. Well, these new guidelines will help this racially-obsessed administration even out the number of blacks, Latinos and whites imprisoned. It sounds cynical and I may be wrong," said former police officer and security director Iris Aquino. "But I fear I'm not."
