The Message in the Trump Pardons

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 2/19/2020 4:24:39 AM

Whatever other virtues might attach to the pardons issued today by President Trump, there is also this: They will remind our overwrought Democrats of one of the most far-sighted features of our Constitution. It is that when it comes to the fate of those who are, or could be, adjudged guilty of offenses against the United States, the final dispensation belongs to the President. He doesn’t even have to explain himself. That’s something to bear in mind as leftist Democrats corral former federal prosecutors to raise an alarum against Mr. Trump’s criticisms of the prosecution of Roger Stone. Or as a bevy of federal judges calls an “emergency”

This President keeps moving forward and, I am sure, the Deep State cannot believe his determination to refuse to allow their intimidation and bullying strategies to stop him. Despite their attempt to make him cower in the White House, he just does what he believes is right for this nation and its people. You have to admire him for that. To keep getting up everyday and taking the blows from the democrats and their progressive allies in the media would paralyze many individuals, but he keeps going with an unbelievably happy attitude. He is truly a happy warrior. God bless him and keep him safe. He will do everything in his power to restore this country to its rightful place in the world because he knows when we do better the world does better.

FTA - "These cases are a reminder that there is no curb on the president’s pardon power." Indeed. The cases are also a message to the leftists, the msm, the deep state, and Obie-holdovers within the federal government to once again shove it sideways. The cases are also a message to Paul Manafort to bite his lip next time he feels the need to go in front of cameras from his prison cell to trash the President. Otherwise, he might have become a free man today.

One message that is clear: unlike Obama and Clinton, he has not pardoned any murderous marxist terrorists like the FALN.members that both Obama and Clinton pardoned.

To me it is amazing that a man like Trump, has the balls to pardon people while running for President. This is a time when most Presidents don't pardon anyone---frightened that someone will be upset about it. Trump doesn't give a rats patoot what other people think about his pardons, He does what HE thinks is right. You might not like the pardons he is giving, but you have to acknowledge that he isn't hiding out and waiting until he leaves office to give them.

New York Times publishes Taliban propaganda 4 replies

It used to be that a murderous regime needed a pliable Western journalist to get its propaganda printed in the New York Times. Not anymore! It can submit directly to the Times opinion section, as the Taliban proved this week. “What We, the Taliban, Want,” reads the actual headline to an article published Thursday by an actual American newsroom. The op-ed, authored by Taliban deputy leader and suspected terrorist Sirajuddin Haqqani, opens with a series of sentences that attempt to “both sides” the conflict between the Taliban and the United States and present the Americans as unreliable and untrustworthy negotiators.

The attacks on Michael Bloomberg came early and often at Wednesday’s debate in Las Vegas, but none of them, of course, touched on his infamous “kill it” comment to a pregnant subordinate. No, the party of abortion at all stages wasn’t going to touch that one. Instead, Elizabeth Warren focused on Bloomberg’s thoughts about “horse-faced lesbians” and “fat broads.” Bloomberg has paid advisers millions of dollars to prepare him for just such moments, but he still acted like he was answering the challenges for the first time. He came off as cold and flat-footed — the unlikeable technocrat trying woodenly to make himself palatable to a left-wing audience with half-hearted answers.

Forget Lincoln and Douglas. Forget Nixon and Kennedy. Hell, forget the Athenians and the Melians back during the Peloponnesian War. Last night’s Democratic primary slagfest in Nevada was the greatest debate in all of human history. Oh, was it glorious — the sheer raging hostility spraying across the stage as every campaign besides the Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg bids face the desperate possibility each might fade into the woodwork against the Bernie surge and the Bloomberg billions. No, my friends, everybody was wearing steel-tipped boots and going right for the crotch. Those weren’t snowflakes. They were nunchucks.

Six people entered the debate stage Thursday night to try and justify their campaigns’ viability to Nevada voters, and five of them spent large chunks of the time taking turns attacking a man who is not the incumbent President or the Democratic frontrunner. It was an odd, but somewhat predictable night in Las Vegas as the top six Democrats running to be the Democratic nominee this year debated on key issues. A lot of the airtime was spent attacking Mike Bloomberg, who is a distant second to Sanders in recent polling, and Sanders actually got away relatively unscathed. Buttigieg, Klobuchar, and Warren tried to keep themselves relevant

President Trump on Wednesday signed a memorandum directing more of California’s scarce water supply to farmers and other agriculture interests in the state's Central Valley, a Republican stronghold. Speaking alongside House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy in the lawmaker’s hometown of Bakersfield, Trump boasted of how his administration reworked environmental rules to assure more water gets to farmers, while also taking shots at his political rivals – from California Gov. Gavin Newsom to Democratic presidential primary hopeful and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg. “For too long water authorities have flushed millions of gallons into the Pacific,” Trump said. “I ordered the administration to update outdated opinions

Elizabeth Warren shamed Mike Bloomberg for allegedly calling women “fat broads.” Amy Klobuchar asked Pete Buttigieg if he was calling her “dumb.” Bloomberg shut down Bernie Sanders by quipping that "the best-known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses." The Democrats’ showdown Wednesday night in Las Vegas repeatedly put Bloomberg in his primary rivals’ crosshairs as the surging billionaire made his debate-stage debut. But the conflagration quickly expanded into an all-out melee and easily the most aggressive debate of the nomination season to date, as each of the candidates took sharp and often personal shots at one another.

It's hard to believe, but May 4, 2020, is the 50th anniversary of the tragic shooting at Kent State University, where Ohio National Guard troops fired on a crowd of students during a massive anti-Vietnam War protest, killing four students and injuring nine. Witnesses, military and law-enforcement experts, historians, and activists are divided on whether the shooting was justified (that's a discussion for another day), but it appears that Kent State is going all-in on pouring salt in the wounds of America's Vietnam veterans. In a move that surprised many in the Northeast Ohio area and beyond, Kent State President Todd Diacon announced that actress, activist, and (former?) communist sympathizer Jane Fonda

We have nothing against South Bend, Indiana. In fact, two members of our opinion staff were born and raised in that city. And we all know that it's no proving ground for the presidency. More generally speaking, service as a small-town mayor is not in itself sufficient training for the Oval Office. Pete Buttigieg, who served two terms as the mayor of Indiana's fourth-largest city, begs to differ. "Pragmatic and value-driven leadership — it's what mayors practice every day," he said in September. "We need a lot more of that in Washington right now.” The following month, Buttigieg said, "There’s no job

George Zimmerman wants a day in court against two of the leading Democratic presidential contenders, accusing them of defamation. In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Florida, the man who killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense in 2012 accused Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of “maliciously defam[ing]” Mr. Zimmerman, using the killing “as a pretext to demagogue and falsely brand Zimmerman as a white supremacist and racist to their millions of Twitter followers.” Mr. Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges on traditional self-defense grounds, because Martin attacked him and beat his head against the ground, supposedly for profiling the black teen while on a neighborhood-watch shift.

Remember after the 2000 election? Democrats were baffled that the voters hadn’t given Al Gore a third Clinton term in the midst of a good economy. Never mind that President Bill Clinton never won a majority of the vote and had been impeached for covering up his defiling of a young intern in the Oval Office. To the credit of those old Democrats, at least they were slightly capable of self-awareness. This crowd today would march right down the throat of a flaming volcano if somebody told them that doing so would hurt President Trump.
