On today's show Remso Martinez joins host John Odermatt. Remso is a political commentator, campaign consultant, and multi-media producer living in the D.C. area. Remso is best known for his podcast the Remso Republic.  

John asks Remso about his recent foray into investigative journalism, which tipped him off to some shady actions by Virginia Democrats. Remso shares how he discovered that the Democrat Party in Virginia was bringing controversial former Attorney General Eric Holder in to fundraise and in a very strange twist neglected to promote his appearance! When Remso asked local Dems why they were bringing gun walker Eric Holder of Fast and Furious fame for a fundraiser, they pretended that Fast and Furious was #fakenews!

On today's episode of Felony Friday host John Odermatt is joined by Lions of Liberty legal counsel "Rico." After exchanging some pleasantries discussing the MLB playoffs, John and Rico dive into the serious topic of the recent Las Vegas shooting.

They start out examining why the gun control crowd and Hillary Clinton have already started to use this tragedy to push their agenda. John and Rico point out that left will push perceived "common sense" solutions, that in reality do nothing to make us safer and absolutely infringe on our liberty. 

Instead of debating the left's fantasy solutions, John and Rico discuss a very important question that you won't hear anywhere else: Should automatic weapons be fully legalized? 

Tune in to hear the answer to this and much more! You can find links to everything discussed on the show below the player for today's podcast.

Shane Claiborne joins the Felony Friday show to discuss a subject that is pretty controversial, the death penalty. Shane is a Christian activist and author who is one of the founding members of the intentional community, the Simple Way, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is a graduate of Eastern University, where he studied sociology and youth ministry.

Shane has an impressive resume. He worked alongside Mother Teresa during a 10-week term in Calcutta. He spent three weeks in Baghdad with the Iraq Peace Team and took daily trips to sites where there had been bombings, visited hospitals and families, and attended worship services during the war. - Claiborne is featured in the documentary The Ordinary Radicals, and he co-directed the three volume Another World is Possible series.

In 2011 he declared his unwillingness to pay taxes to fund U.S. military activity and withheld a portion of his income taxes meant to correspond to the percentage of the federal budget spent on the military, donating that money instead to charity. Shane is the author of the book Executing Grace: How the Death Penalty Killed Jesus and Why It's Killing Us.

On today's episode recent clemency recipient Ramona Brant joined the show to share her powerful story. In 1995, Ramona was sentenced to life in prison for a cocaine offense related to her then-boyfriend’s drug dealing. At her sentencing the judge said he was “shocked at the severity of the sentence,” BUT he had no legal discretion to sentence her to less time. 

Ramona spent 20 years in prison, before finally receiving a commutation from President Obama in 2015, and was released to a halfway house in February 2016. In March 2016, Ramona met President Obama during a special lunch for commutation recipients, and participated in a White House briefing on clemency, where she shared her story. Ramona is now the PR Director of the CAN-DO Guardian Angel program that has paired over 40 Guardian Angels with approximately 50 clemency applicants.

On today's episode of Felony Friday host John Odermatt unveils a unique format for the show. Instead of being joined by a guest, this is a special, first of a kind solo show hosted by John. As always on Felony Friday, there are some incredible topics to analyze. First, John talks about a couple criminal justice stories that you should be sharing and discussing with your friends. Next, he weighs in on some stories that have been discussed in the mainstream media, but as per usual the main stream media has missed the most important takeaway. And lastly, John weighs in on a controversial topic and asks if "it's a crime, and if they should do time."
