President Trump has granted clemency to two Army officers accused or convicted of war crimes and restored Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher to the rank of chief petty officer after he was docked a pay grade after being convicted of posing for a photo with a dead Islamic State (ISIS) fighter, the White House announced Friday. Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance could be released from the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, as soon as Friday evening, six years after being found guilty of second-degree murder. Maj. Matt Golsteyn, a former Green Beret, will have the murder charge against him dropped.

I don't know the details of the other two cases, but probably good soldiers killing Islamic terrorists and the Army getting all cranked up about a "done wrong" penalty turning into a serious crime. Bless our President.

Good for the orange man. Under Obama's rules of engagement, if you looked cross eyed at a terrorist you were up for prosecution.

Bush and Obama both tied the hands of our brave warriors, worrying more about muslim sensibilities than they did our personnel. Good on Trump for righting three wrongs. Would love to see him put General Flynn out of his misery as well. Scooter Libby should have been pardoned by Bush, but petty man he was/is, refused to do it. That I think just fueled the hatred and lack of respect people developed for him. Bush and Obama are the only two men I have ever seen actually finish the job of being president as much smaller men then when they won their elections.

Another great move by our President. To train our young men to go out and kill the enemy, then when they do it, they are charged with murder is crazy. Donald Trump cuts through such nonsense and does the right thing. He WILL get the Military vote added to the reason he is re-elected in a Landslide. The vote for COMMON SENSE in a Leader reigns supreme! Meanwhile, Adam Schiff has become the Tiny man with his very large gavel, sitting in Judgement (all by himself) of our President. Every time we see him in action he becomes smaller and smaller and more and more ugly (inside and out)! His hatred for our President is written across his face when he presides over the Hearings. He is going to destroy the Democrat Party in 2020, all by himself!

#1, from all I have read, these were justifiable killings. It is sad that our brave soldiers were so hamstrung under the previous administration. Sadder still that these brave soldiers sat in prison while the traitors, Bergdahl and Manning both walked free for several years because Obama pardoned them.

Real Time host Bill Maher concluded his satirical segment “New Rules” on Friday by advising his audience to “just celebrate Thanksgiving, don’t try to win it.” At first glance, his closing monologue might have seemed like words of wisdom for those who “see politics so differently from people who share your very blood.” But it quickly turned into a rant against “hate”-filled “rubes” and “Bible thumpers,” in other words, conservatives. After unveiling his tip, Maher proceeded to advise his viewers to “never forget the single shining truth about democracy: it means sharing a country with a**holes you can’t stand.” Maher made it perfectly clear that he was talking about conservatives.

Democrats failed to present the public with any evidence that President Donald Trump should be impeached in their first round of public hearings this week, White House Senior Advisor for Strategy Tony Sayegh told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Saturday. Sayegh, who has been brought in by Trump to handle messaging in response to the Democrats’ partisan impeachment inquiry alongside former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, made the case that the Democrats’ three “star witnesses” on Wednesday and Friday failed to bolster the Democrats’ case for impeachment—and instead actually helped the president’s case and the GOP case against the inquiry.

Later that month, May 17, 2017, she officially launched a "political organization aimed at funding 'resistance' groups" to oppose and undermine the president. As early as June 2, 2016, Hillary had been questioning President Trump's "fitness to lead" and given a "tour-de-force assault on his record," calling him "too dangerous and unstable" to be president.

Impeachment Argument Is Failing

CNN reports that in a private meeting this week, top Democrats conceded that the polls on impeachment were unlikely to shift, and that their basic message is failing to break through for huge swaths of Americans. This is very close to admitting that their ultimate goal, of removing president Trump from office will not be achieved. The reason this would mean game over for the removal effort is that only a significant uptick for impeachment in polling, especially among Republicans who have been rock solid in support of Trump, could lead to GOP votes to convict in the senate.

Upset at what he called preconditions imposed by the National Football League, quarterback Colin Kaepernick at the last minute moved his scheduled tryout on Saturday away from the Atlanta Falcons training facility to a local high school where media could attend. The former starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers is seeking a return to the NFL three years after his protests against racial injustice roiled the sport. He has contended that teams would not sign him because they wanted to distance themselves from the protests, which U.S. President Donald Trump blasted as unpatriotic and disrespectful.

She even found him guilty of confessing to bribery. Who knew Pelosi, at her advanced age, could perform so many contortions? This has to be the greatest acrobatic spin in political history. “The bribe,” she said, in a widely reported news conference on the heels of the first public impeachment hearing, “is to grant or withhold military assistance in return for a public statement

Until a month or so ago, virtually no one outside of the seven circles of hell that is the State Department had heard of Marie Yovanovitch. Even the intrepid John Solomon had not heard of her until March of this year. He had interviewed Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko who told him that Yovanovitch gave him a "do not prosecute" list the first time he met with her. He was angered by her list which he justifiably saw it as interference in Ukraine's government. He felt she was meddling in their anti-corruption investigations by telling him who should not be investigated.

TAMPA — From the moment the NFL announced its hasty plan for a Colin Kaepernick workout this weekend, the questions have been flying. After all this time, why the sudden rush? Did some team request this? How many general managers will show up? Is this simply a ploy for atonement by the NFL? Yet, around here, a more important question needs to be asked: Can Kaepernick help the Buccaneers? It’s an interesting and legitimate question with, at this point, no clear answer. Kaepernick has not been in an NFL uniform in nearly three years so it’s worth wondering if his skills have atrophied.

Other people in his position, though, would likely be more than a bit concerned about their future, given that, based on a new report, the president’s lawyer is now the subject of three different investigations.

'And I must confess to you that when I hear a speech someone responsible for order or for a government, I think of speeches by Hitler in 1934, 1936,' he said, departing from his prepared address.

The Ruling Class hates the lesser mortals who populate the realm they think they rightly rule. When Flyover Country forced Donald Trump on them as president, the outrage that was born of the initial shock grew into outright disdain for those put him into power. Senior Deep State bureaucrats like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page may be able to smell Trump supporters at Walmart, but for really intense class snobbery, there are few places that do it better than Harvard. At Harvard, few professors carry more political cachet than Laurence Tribe, who holds the title “University Professor,” (a very big deal at Harvard) and teaches constitutional law at Harvard Law School.
