CORRECTION: Joe Biden was speaking with George Lopez during the interview, and it is possible he could have been referring to George Lopez.
You decide for yourself.
What started out as a LID placed on the Biden campaign for all day Sunday, ended up a disaster for Lying Joe participated in a virtual event 9 days from Election Day.
Showing Joe’s loss of the details, Biden appears, to some viewers, to confuse President Trump with someone names George. Some people think that he may have confused Trump with former President George Bush.
“…What kind of country we’re gonna be. Four more years of George…uh George uh he uh is gonna find ourselves in a position where if Trump gets elected we’re gonna uh we’re gonna be in a different world,” said Biden.
Joe’s wife/caretaker Jill appears to nervously whisper “Trump” trying to aid the mentally fading presidential candidate appearing to struggle to remember President Trumps’ name.
Also in todays debacles, Biden was caught in another apparent lie, getting fact checked in real time.
As gently as possible and providing a little cover for Joe during their interview on 60 minutes, the interviewer implied that maybe Joe’s team has a different formula than what they used to fact check him.
Since math is verifiable, CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell included the fact-check correcting Joe Biden’s claims on the trade deficit with China: “lower in 2019 than it was during the last three years of the Obama administration”
My guess is, with more emails exposing Hunter’s criminal and moral failures expected to drop tomorrow, and needing to recover from tonight, that Joe will hide under his LID tomorrow, not coming out until sometime Tuesday.
On Thursday, Representative Steve Cohen (D-TN), who has been a loud critic of President Donald Donald Trump, introduced two bills to do away with the Electoral College and prevent presidents from pardoning themselves or their family members.
“Presidents should not pardon themselves, their families, their administration or campaign staff,” Cohen said in a statement. “This constitutional amendment would expressly prohibit this and any future president, from abusing the pardon power.”
The numbskull congressman doesn’t understand that the president has plenary powers of the pardon and any use of it is not an abuse of power. It’s like listening to children.
A third term of President Jimmy Carter is more likely than for either of the Amendments to pass because Amendments require a two-thirds vote in both chambers of Congress and then they go out to the states and must be ratified by three-fourths of them. Yes, I know that presidents can only have two terms. As I said, a third term of Jimmy Carter has a better chance.
Cohen is the loudmouth who once predicted that Donald Trump Jr. and the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner would both be indicted by Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed by his good buddy Rod Rosenstein to investigate the fake phony fraud Russian collusion delusion nonsense. Of course, he wouldn’t provide any evidence. None of the Democrats who said the Trump family was guilty of anything ever did. Hell, Adam Schiff (D-CA) the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee for over two years said daily that he had evidence that Russian collusion happened with the Trump campaign, and he never provided a single piece of his professed evidence.
Last summer President Trump said that he has the right to pardon himself, but that he doesn’t have to do that, because he’s done nothing wrong and has committed no crimes. The only thing a president cannot pardon themself over is an impeachment. I believe the president should rethink that logic because things have changed radically since then. The Democrats made up impeachment articles against him and there’s nothing now to stop them from making up a crime against Trump to go after him once he’s out of office.
“As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong?” the president wrote in a tweet.
Many Democrats are bringing back the idiotic idea of getting rid of the Electoral College. They started complaining about it after George W Bush lost the popular vote but won the Electoral College. Only five presidents have done that: John Quincy Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes, Benjamin Harrison, George W Bush, and Donald J Trump. Hillary Clinton’s first bill she presented as a US Senator was the eliminate the Electoral College. Back then, most of the Democrats in Washington still had some common sense and the bill was never taken seriously. Hillary certainly screeched a lot about it after she won the popular vote against Donald Trump (304-227), but he won the Electoral College.
“In two presidential elections since 2000, including the most recent one in which Hillary Clinton won 2.8 million more votes than her opponent, the winner of the popular vote did not win the election because of the distorting effect of the outdated Electoral College,” Cohen blathered in his statement about the bill he introduced. “Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office.”
Cohen appears to suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome at Level 7, which is the highest known level of the disease.
“More than a century ago, we amended our Constitution to provide for the direct election of US Senators,” he added. “It is past time to directly elect our President and Vice President.”
This clown doesn’t understand that the 17th Amendment which changed how Senators are elected was one of the single most damaging Amendments to our country ever passed. Prior to the 17th Amendment, senators were elected by state legislatures. This meant that if a US Senator was voting in ways that were not supportive of his state, the legislature could remove him from office. The 17th Amendment changed that and senators are now elected by the popular vote of the American voters. The problem with this is that the change in how senators are elected made it so that senators are no longer loyal to their state, but now are loyal to Washington, DC. It was the creation of the Swamp.
What Cohen is doing is showboating for his constituents and his Democrat colleagues, but more importantly he is showboating his extreme ignorance of the law and our history.
On Monday, a judge in the UK ruled that Wikileaks‘ founder Julian Assange was not going to be extradited to the United States to face charges for what the US Department of Justice said was spying and conspiring to get secret US documents by hacking government computers.
I know that many people have accused Assange of hacking for WikiLeaks, but he vehemently maintains that Wikileaks doesn’t hack for its information. People, mostly whistleblowers, upload their documents the Wikileaks website. There is no hacking involved concerning Wikileaks. If someone hacks a computer server to get documents and then uploads them to Wikileaks, that is not Wikileaks hacking. There is a distinct difference.
Courts have maintained that journalists from outlets like the New York Times or the Washington Post cannot be held liable for government documents that are given to them. So then how come WikiLeaks is treated differently? I remember when the Washington Post, under the George W Bush administration, published classified information on black sites overseas where they were interrogating terrorists, causing serious diplomatic relations problems with other countries for letting that cat out of the bag. Nothing happened to the Washington post.
American officials have accused Assange, 49, of 18 counts relating to Wikileaks’ release of a large number of confidential US military records, along with diplomatic cables that the government argued put lives in danger.
Assange’s lawyers argued that the prosecution was politically-motivated, powered by US President Donald Trump, even though it was started by under the Obama administration, and that his extradition posed a severe threat to the work of journalists.
US prosecutors indicted Assange on 17 espionage charges and a single charge of computer misuse over the publication of the leaked military and diplomatic documents in 2010. Again, other news outlets do not get into trouble when government documents are leaked to them, so why is this any difference?
The 49-year-old Australian activist was arrested again back in September over the charges, which carry a maximum sentence of 175 years in prison.
In the indictment, Assange is charged with conspiring with Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to decrypt a password to a classified US Defense Department computer.
Assange denies all accounts of scheming with Manning to crack the encrypted password on the DOD computers, and he points out that there isn’t any evidence that anyone’s safety was ever put at risk.
Judge Vanessa Baraitser rejected almost all of Assange’s legal team’s arguments during a heaing at London’s Old Bailey, but she said she would not extradite him to the Unite States because there was a real risk he could commit suicide, and she ordered his discharge.
“Faced with conditions of near total isolation, I am satisfied that the procedures (outline by US authorities) will not prevent Mr. Assange from finding a way to commit suicide,” she said.
Assange’s legal team made the argument that Julian was acting as a journalist, and is therefore entitled to First Amendment protections of Freedom of Speech for publishing the leaked documents that exposed US military wrongdoing in Afghanistan and Iraq. Maybe they should have argue Freedom of the Press?
The judge rejected their claims, saying his conduct “would therefore amount to offences in this jurisdiction that would not be protected by his right to freedom of speech.”
The judge then added that Assange, who has suffered from clinical depression, would be further harmed by the isolation of sitting in a prison cell in the US should he face the American Justice System, saying that he has the “intellect and determination”
The judge added that Assange suffered from clinical depression that would be exacerbated by the isolation he would likely face in US prison, adding he had the “intellect and determination” to bypass any suicide prevention measures the American authorities would take. Just think about what happened to Jeffrey Epstein.
Assange’s many supporters were thrilled with the decision not to extradite him, but at the same time they were not happy that the ruling was made on health grounds.
Stella Moris, Assange’s fiancée, who is the mother of his two young sons, was there are the Old Bailey for the hearing.
After the ruling, Moris said in a statement, “Today is a victory for Julian. Today’s victory is a first step towards justice in this case.”
On Thursday, US Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito fired back at Democratic members of Congress over a brief they filed in a recent Second Amendment case, and condemned them for trying to strong-arm the Supreme Court.
In remarks to the Federalist Society Alito slammed Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, that cocky, smarmy jerk from Rhode Island who came up with a wacky conspiracy theory against now Justice Amy Coney Barrett during her confirmation hearings, who is one of the brief’s authors, for floating the idea of “restructuring” the Court in response to a pro-gun ruling. Alito called the idea “an affront to the Constitution and the rule of law.” And that’s about par for the course with Democrats these days. They have become of a despicable nature who now openly show they have no respect for the US Constitution and our Constitutional rights.
The comments made by the justice, who was nominated in 2006 by President George W Bush, are raising eyebrows: Supreme Court justices rarely trade barbs with politicians, and Alito’s blunt remarks offered a rare view inside the Court after an election cycle where packing the court was a major issue.
I contend that Democrats pushing the idea of politicizing the Supreme Court by adding even more left-wing justices who rule based on what the leftist mob wants, rarely having anything to do with Constitutional law, as a remedy to their anger over President Donald Trump nominating Justice Barrett, a Constitutional originalist and textualist, as a threat to democracy is damn kooky and should be excoriated by a sitting justice.
Alito also weighed in on issues from gun rights to the coronavirus, telling the audience that for many Democrats, the Second Amendment is “the ultimate second-tier constitutional right,” and that the broad restrictions politicians enacted to combat the Chinese virus pandemic have revealed their contempt for Religious Freedom. The former has been understood for decades, but the latter of his argument is a topic with fresh sunlight as Democrat governors and mayors throughout the coronavirus pandemic enforced double standards that were openly apparent. While they locked down churches and religious ceremonies claiming health arguments against spreading the virus, the same elected politicians had no problem whatsoever with protesters, looters and rioters taking to the streets all summer with zero regard to social distancing and wearing masks outside of the chaos, mayhem, death and destruction they brought to much of our society.
“Take a quick look at the Constitution” Alito said. “You will see the free exercise clause of the First Amendment, which protects religious liberty. You will not find a craps clause, or a blackjack clause, or a slot machine clause.” Alito was referring to a Nevada law that gave the okie dokie for casinos to open but put restrictions on the number of people who could attend services in churches. That’s because the state makes more money in tax revenues from casinos than from churches, synagogues and masques, and many Democrats hate religions because they preach that there is a higher power than government.
Rhode Island’s Sheldon Whitehouse was mentioned with a special rebuke by Alito singling out a recent brief filed by the left-wing senator and four other Democrats on a New York City firearms transportation ordinance.Whitehouse and other senate Democrats threatened that a “pro-gun” ruling would further provoke the growing movement to “restructure” the Court, which means to add leftist justices who disdain the Constitution to rig the outcome of rulings from now on.
“The senators’ brief was extraordinary,” Alito added. “I could say something about standards of professional conduct. But the brief involved something even more important. It was an affront to the Constitution and the rule of law.”
Alito went on to remind people that the Supreme Court was created by the Constitution and not by the Congress and that under the Constitution, the Supreme Court exercises the judicial power of the United States. Alito argued that Congress has no right to interfere with that work any more than the Court has the right to legislate.
And there goes the rub. All leftist judges in my opinion believe they have the right to legislate from the bench. For example, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court changed an election law that helped Democrats and harmed Republicans in the 2020 election. Article I, Section 4 of the US Constitution gives sole power of state election laws to the state Legislature. The PA legislature in 2019 created a law called Act 77, which gave the state the right to implement a mail-in voting scam, er, system in the wake of the Chinese virus pandemic. Part of Act 77 stipulates that all ballots must be received, postmarked by Election Day or not, by 8 pm on Election Day. When the PA Supreme Court changed that law by giving Democrats an extension of three more days, they violated the Constitution by changing a law that the Constitution clearly stipulates they can not do.
Alito went on to stress that the Supreme Court’s obligation is to try cases “based on the law, period,” and that is is wrong for any member of Congress to try to influence the Court’s decisions with threats or anything other than legal argumentation. Democrats talk a good game about fairness and democracy (even though we live in a republic) but that’s only platitudes for when things go their way. When things don’t go their way they always try to come up with ways to rig the system, and the recent calls to pack the court is a perfect example.
Don’t forget that back in March the Senate minority leader, who I pray will remain the minority leader, Chuck Schumer (D-NY), threatened Justices Neal Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh over possible abortion rulings, and then he denied he threatened them, and the Fake News mainstream media got his back to gaslight you into thinking it never happened. He’s full of horse hockey. He threatened the justices and we heard it. And if that’s the leader of the Democrats in the Senate, you can only imagine how bad the rest of the partisan Democrats are.
Folks, this is the result of a party going unhinged when everything they are raging over is 100 percent Constitutional. They just don’t like the way things are legally playing out, and so they turn to threats. That pretty much sums up what Justice Alito was saying to warn America.
A former strategist for three establishment neocons John McCain (R-AR), and John Kasich (barely R-OH), and George W. Bush (R-TX), John Weaver was celebrating on Thursday, taking to social media to declare “America is great again” after Congress officially certified Joe Biden’s electoral theft. Weaver, a Never-Trump establishment RINO, is also a member of the Lincoln Project, a group of disaffected ‘Never Trump’ Republicans and neoconservatives who formed for one reason and one reason only; to get rid of President Donald Trump.
Inspired by Trump’s loss, and energized by the $67 million they raised during the election to get rid of Trump, the Lincoln Project began work on a database of soon-to-be former Trump staff and officials, with a view to holding them “accountable” for the rest of their professional lives.
Folks, Republicans do not do that sort of thing. Democrats, socialists, Marxists, communists, are the ones who create lists to be used to harm people. Republicans believe in little “r” God-given rights, not the get-evenism of the Left. This just goes to show where these creeps in the Lincoln Project stand. They are hateful tyrants who prefer an establishment that though Republicans would lose power, they would get rich with all the backroom deals made with the globalists at the expense of the working class who will once again see their jobs going overseas. So, Weaver had a moment of jubilee. But only a moment.
Weaver was soon confronted with some allegations found in his own dark closet.
“Maybe I should start talking about one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project offering jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” Ryan Girdusky, a Conservative pundit tweeted out on Saturday, adding, “his wife is probably interested.”
Girdusky continued saying he has been contacted by several men who claimed that they were groomed by the “Founding Member” of the Lincoln Project. Girdusky at that point didn’t reveal more than that but said he had screenshots of messages the Lincoln Project member sent to one of the recipients. YIKES!
A Twitter account under the name of Josh Price came out and named Weaver as the creep in question. Price has since locked his Twitter account. He was followed by another liberal pundit, who claimed Weaver sent him “pushy” and “flirty” messages as well.
After Donald Trump Jr. retweeted their accusations, journalist Scott Stedman reacted to Girdusky’s tweet thread, confirming that he too was contacted by Weaver. Stedman said he followed Weaver on Twitter starting in 2017, and the two would chat sometimes about politics. Stedman said Weaveroffered him “some sort of ‘joint venture’ which I wasn’t interested in,” before the strategist “proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair.” DOUBLE YIKES!
“He started calling me ‘my boy,’” Stedman said. “I found it deeply uncomfortable.”
Stedman said that, since posting about what happened, he’s “gotten multiple DMs of people telling me they experienced this (and worse).” Some, he said, are “afraid to say anything.” That’s what leftists are all about. They do whatever they want and they know they can use their power to keep people silent.
These kinds of accusations are nothing new. They first started coming to come out last summer during the time Weaver had a heart attack and had to slow down his work with the hateful Lincoln Project.
Weaver has still not weighed in the allegations as of this writing on Sunday afternoon. He hasn’t even issued a denial.
The Lincoln Project’s celebrations are really for naught, because despite the fact that they raised $67 million to convince Republican voters to drop their support for Trump, the president got more votes than any past president running for reelection, which means their whole project was a big old good egg failure. But neocons are used to failure, so they should feel right at home.
NBC host Chuck Todd, who is always in the running to overtake CNN’s Brian Stelter as the dumbest newsman in the news media, had it out with Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) over a number of Republican members of Congress who are planning to dispute the certification of Joe Biden winning the 2020 election due to questions of massive election fraud.
After being accused of trying to thwart the democratic process, Johnson hit back by telling sleepy eyes Todd that they are trying to protect it.
“We are not acting to thwart the democratic process, we are acting to protect it,” Johnson said to Todd.
“The fact of the matter is we have an unsustainable state of affairs in this country where we have tens of millions of people who do not view this election result as legitimate,” Johnson added.
The senator from Wisconsin added, “As long as somebody is going to be objecting to this and we’re going to take a vote, let’s propose a solution in terms of transparency, investigation, with a commission.”
Todd, like all mainstream news media activists, saw his job as trashing Johnson and continuing to spread the lie that there is no evidence of election fraud based on the courts dismissing multiple cases brought on by Republicans. What Todd and every other left-wing activist with a news program forgets to mention is that none of the cases were tossed by judges based on bad evidence. They were never allowed to even present their evidence before the judges threw out the cases. Don’t you think that’s a pretty important fact that Todd should have acknowledged?
“You made an allegation there was widespread fraud, you have failed to offer specific evidence of that widespread fraud, but you’re demanding an investigation on the grounds that there are allegations of widespread fraud. So essentially you’re the arsonist here. President Trump is the arsonist here,” Todd spit out at Johnson.
Here’s the most frustrating thing about all of this. There is massive amounts of evidence showing election fraud, but losers like Chuck Todd refused to air it. There were legislature hearings in all of the key battleground states where whistleblowers and witnesses filed over a thousand affidavits signed upon penalty of perjury who testified to reveal election fraud they witnessed first hand.
The hearings were all aired on YouTube, because cretins like Chuck Todd refused to air them. None of the mainstream news media outlets aired a single hearing, and I believe they stayed away from them so that they could continue to lie to their viewers about there being no evidence.
Here is just one example of an expert witness who testified as to the results of a 2020 voter data analysis he did for the Georgia election, where he discovered there were tens of thousands of fraudulent votes in numerous categories.
“Because you didn’t have the guts to tell the truth that this election was fair!” Todd continued.
Johnson fired back at the lamebrain pointing to him as being the arsonist because media types like Todd “dropped any pretense of being unbiased and actually chose sides during the election.”
Todd and others in the Fake News media are acting like the Republicans contesting the election results is an unprecedented affair.
Let me remind them that the last three times a Republican won a presidential election the Democrats in the House brought objections to the Electoral votes the Republican won.
Lest they forget that the House Democrats contested both elections of former President George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004 and President Trump’s win in 2016.
Senator Josh Hawley (R- MO) announced last week that he will object to Electoral College certification, and that brought a large amount of condemnation from Democrats who praised their own party’s objections to GOP victories in 2000, 2004 and 2016. Democrats always accuse Republicans of doing things that they actually did.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called the Republican’s objections to the 2020 election “conspiracy and fantasy.” I’d love to know how much Schumer is involved in the attempts to steal the Georgia senate runoff elections being held today.
Schumer said, “The effort by the sitting president of the United States to overturn the results is patently undemocratic. The effort by others to amplify and burnish his ludicrous claims of fraud is equally revolting.”
So, then what would he call when the Democrats did it three times? The clowns literally claimed Donald Trump was a Russian asset after his 2016 victory.
“This is America. We have elections. We have results. We make arguments based on the fact and reason—not conspiracy and fantasy,” he added. He said this even though he know that Democrats have been challenging the electoral vote for every Republican victory for decades.
In 2005, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), along with Representative Stephanie Tubbs (D-OH), objected to Bush’s 2004 electoral votes in Ohio.
Democrats championed Boxer’s actions at the time, including Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL). Yet last week, Durbin described Republican objections as “the political equivalent of barking at the moon.” Speaking of barking at the moon, Durbin is a known liar who throws out lies to push conspiracy theories.
The fact of the matter is the Constitution provides lots of remedies for situations we are in right now. Donald Trump won the 2020 election by a landslide, and the Democrats stole it from him. You have to be dumb as a box of hair or a CNN viewer to not understand that after the evidence has been presented from all battleground states. It’s overwhelming, despite the fact that the Democrats and their boot-licking sycophants in the mainstream news media ignore or lie about it. The Republicans have every right to object.
President Donald J. Trump on Wednesday issued a batch of pardons forgiving the crimes of two former associates, Paul Manafort and Roger Stone, as well as Charles Kushner, the father of Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner.
The latest list grants 26 full pardons and commutes all or part of the sentence of three additional individuals after Trump on Tuesday issued 15 pardons and five commutations.
From Tuesday, the White House released the following statement:
Today, President Donald J. Trump granted Full Pardons to 15 individuals and commuted part or all of the sentences of an additional 5 individuals.
Alfonso Costa — President Trump granted a full pardon to Alfonso Costa, a dentist from Pittsburgh. Dr. Costa’s request for clemency was supported by Dr. Ben Carson and Jerome Bettis, as well as by numerous business associates, patients, and community leaders from Pittsburgh. Dr. Costa pled guilty to one count of health care fraud related to false billing, took full responsibility for his conduct, served two years of probation, and paid nearly $300,000 in fines and restitution. He has devoted much of his adult life to service to his community, including serving on the board of the Pittsburgh Opera, and doing significant service for children and the underprivileged.
Alfred Lee Crum — President Trump granted Alfred Lee Crum a full pardon. Mr. Crum, who is now 89, pled guilty in 1952—when he was 19 years old—to helping his wife’s uncle illegally distill moonshine in Oklahoma. Mr. Crum served three years of probation, and paid a $250 fine. Mr. Crum has maintained a clean record and a strong marriage for nearly 70 years, attended the same church for 60 years, raised four children, and regularly participated in charity fundraising events. Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Oklahoma Brian Kuester supported Mr. Crum’s request for a pardon.
Crystal Munoz — Today, President Trump commuted Crystal Munoz’s remaining term of supervised release, having previously commuted her sentence of incarceration after she had served 12 years in prison. Alice Johnson, the Texas A&M Criminal Defense Clinic, and the Clemency for All Non-Violent Drug Offenders Foundation are among the many who supported clemency for Ms. Munoz. Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi supports the President’s further act of clemency today. Ms. Munoz was convicted of conspiracy to distribute marijuana based on her role in a marijuana smuggling ring. During her time in prison, she mentored people working to better their lives, volunteered with a hospice program, and demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to rehabilitation.
Tynice Nichole Hall — President Trump has commuted the remainder of Tynice Nichole Hall’s term of supervised release. He previously commuted her term of incarceration after she had served nearly 14 years of an 18-year sentence for allowing her apartment to be used to distribute drugs. Alice Johnson, The Clemency for All Non-Violent Drug Offenders Foundation, and The Ladies of Hope Ministries are among the many who supported clemency for Ms. Hall. Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi supports the President’s further act of clemency today. While in prison, Ms. Hall completed a number of job-training programs and apprenticeships, as well as coursework towards a college degree. In addition, Ms. Hall taught prison educational programs to other inmates. She has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has worked hard to rehabilitate herself.
Judith Negron — President Trump has today commuted the remainder of Judith Negron’s term of supervised release. He previously commuted her term of incarceration after she had served 8 years of her sentence. Alice Johnson, the Clemency for All Non-Violent Drug Offenders Foundation, Change.org, and the Warden at Aliceville Federal Correctional Institution have all supported clemency for Ms. Negron. Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi supports the President’s further act of clemency today. Ms. Negron is a wife and mother who was sentenced to 35 years for her role as a minority-owner of a healthcare company engaged in a scheme to defraud the Federal Government. During her incarceration, Ms. Negron dedicated her time to improving her life as well as the lives of her fellow inmates. She completed hundreds of hours of educational programs, served as a tutor, and mentored other inmates. Her acts of selflessness won her the praise of her prison warden.
Steve Stockman — Today, President Trump commuted the remaining prison sentence of Steve Stockman. Former Representatives Bob McEwen and Bob Barr, along with James Dobson and L. Brent Bozell are among the many public figures who have called for Mr. Stockman’s release from incarceration on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. Mr. Stockman is 64 and has underlying pre-existing health conditions that place his health at greater risk during the COVID epidemic, and he has already contracted COVID while in prison. Mr. Stockman, who was twice a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Texas’s 9th congressional district from 1995 to 1997 and Texas’s 36th congressional district from 2013 to 2015, was convicted in 2018 of misuse of charitable funds. Mr. Stockman has served more than two years of his ten-year sentence and will remain subject to a period of supervised release and an order requiring that he pay more than $1,000,000 in restitution.
Duncan Hunter – At the request of many Members of Congress, President Trump granted a full pardon to Duncan Hunter. His pardon is also supported by former Commissioner of the Federal Election Commission Bradley Smith.
Mr. Hunter has dedicated much of his adult life to public service. Mr. Hunter represented California’s 50th Congressional District from 2013 to 2020. Prior to his time in Congress, Mr. Hunter was an officer in the United States Marine Corps. Inspired to enlist after the September 11, 2001 attacks, Mr. Hunter saw combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
In 2019, Mr. Hunter pled guilty to one count of misusing campaign funds, an offense that could have been handled as a civil case via the Federal Election Commission, according to former FEC Commissioner Bradley Smith. He was sentenced to 11 months’ imprisonment set to begin in January 2021.
Chris Collins – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Chris Collins, at the request of many Members of Congress.
Mr. Collins served in Congress for nearly seven years, representing the people of Western New York from 2013 to 2019. Mr. Collins spent his early career as a successful businessman and entrepreneur, before devoting his life to public service. In 2007, Mr. Collins was elected County Executive for Erie County, New York, a position he held for one four-year term, and in 2012 the people of New York’s 27th congressional district elected Mr. Collins to the U.S. House of Representatives. He was subsequently re-elected to this seat three times. During his tenure in Congress, Mr. Collins was known for his particular focus on the wellbeing of small businesses, agriculture, and sciences.
In 2019, Mr. Collins pled guilty to the charges of conspiring to commit securities fraud and making false statements to the FBI. Mr. Collins is currently serving his 26-month sentence.
Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean – Today, President Trump granted full pardons to Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. These former Border Patrol Agents have been supported by one hundred members of Congress, including Rep. Louie Gohmert, Rep. Steve King, Rep. Ted Poe, Rep. Paul Gosar, Rep. Brian Babin, as well as the U.S. Border Control Foundation and the Conservative Legal Defense and Education Fund.
Mr. Ramos participates in numerous community activities and charities, and Mr. Compean is active in his local church.
Both men served as Border Patrol Agents and put themselves in harm’s way to help secure our southern border with Mexico. On one such occasion in 2005, they stopped an illegal alien trafficking 700 pounds of marijuana. When the illegal alien—who was thought to be armed—resisted arrest, Mr. Ramos shot the suspect, who fled back across the border. For this, Mr. Ramos and Mr. Compean were charged and convicted of assault, using a firearm during a crime of violence, and deprivation of civil rights. After they were sentenced to 11 and 12 years imprisonment, respectively, their case gained widespread attention.
One hundred members of Congress, as well as the organizations above, supported Mr. Ramos’ and Mr. Compean’s release from prison. The Senate Judiciary Committee held hearings on the excessive sentence imposed on the former agents. And President George W. Bush ultimately commuted these sentences with strong bipartisan support.
George Papadopoulos – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to George Papadopoulos. Mr. Papadopoulos was charged with a process-related crime, one count of making false statements, in connection with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Notably, Mueller stated in his report that he found no evidence of collusion in connection with Russia’s attempts to interfere in the election. Nonetheless, the Special Counsel’s team still charged Mr. Papadopoulos with this process-related crime.
At the time that Mr. Papadopoulos allegedly made the false statements, he was not represented by counsel, and, after he was arrested, Mr. Papadopoulos gave additional information on his prior statements to the Special Counsel. Today’s pardon helps correct the wrong that Mueller’s team inflicted on so many people.
Alex van der Zwaan – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Alex van der Zwaan. His pardon is supported by former Rep. Trey Gowdy.
Mr. van der Zwaan was charged with a process-related crime, one count of making false statements, in connection with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. None of his underlying conduct was alleged to have been unlawful, nor did prosecutors note any prior criminal history. Mr. van der Zwaan is a Dutch national who voluntarily returned to the United States to correct his statements and surrendered his passport upon entry.
Nicholas Slatten, Paul Slough, Evan Liberty, and Dustin Heard – Today, President Trump granted full pardons to Nicholas Slatten, Paul Slough, Evan Liberty, and Dustin Heard. The pardon of these four veterans is broadly supported by the public, including Pete Hegseth, and elected officials such as Rep. Louie Gohmert, Rep. Paul Gosar, Rep. Ralph Norman, Rep. Bill Flores, Rep. Brian Babin, Rep. Michael Burgess, Rep. Daniel Webster, Rep. Steve King, and Rep. Ted Yoho.
Mr. Slatten, Mr. Slough, Mr. Liberty, and Mr. Heard have a long history of service to the Nation. Mr. Slatten was inspired to serve his country after the attacks of September 11, 2001, and served two tours in Iraq with the 82nd Airborne Division. Mr. Slough served in the United States Army and deployed to Iraq with his National Guard unit. Mr. Liberty served in the United States Marine Corps and protected United States Embassies abroad. Mr. Heard served in the United States Marine Corps during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
These veterans were working in Iraq in 2007 as security contractors responsible for securing the safety of United States personnel. When the convoy attempted to establish a blockade outside the “Green Zone,” the situation turned violent, which resulted in the unfortunate deaths and injuries of Iraqi civilians. Initial charges against the men were dismissed, but they were eventually tried and convicted on charges ranging from first degree murder to voluntary manslaughter. On appeal, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that additional evidence should have been presented at Mr. Slatten’s trial. Further, prosecutors recently disclosed—more than 10 years after the incident—that the lead Iraqi investigator, who prosecutors relied heavily on to verify that there were no insurgent victims and to collect evidence, may have had ties to insurgent groups himself.
Weldon Angelos – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Weldon Angelos. Mr. Angelos’ pardon is supported by Senator Mike Lee, Senator Rand Paul, Alice Johnson, former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolman, and others.
Mr. Angelos is an active criminal justice reform advocate and champion of giving second chances. Because of mandatory minimums, Mr. Angelos was sentenced in 2002 to 55 years’ imprisonment for selling marijuana and carrying a handgun in the course of dealing. The presiding judge called this excessive sentence “unjust and cruel and even irrational.”
Mr. Angelos was eventually released by judicial order after serving 13 years in prison, and committed to changing the world for the better through criminal justice reform advocacy. His story has been cited as an inspiration for sentencing reform, including the First Step Act, and he participated in a Prison Reform Summit at the White House in 2018. In his own words, Mr. Angelos wants “to become whole again and put the bad choices in the past and continue changing the world for the better.”
Philip Lyman – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Philip Lyman. Mr. Lyman’s pardon is supported by Senator Mike Lee, Former Rep. Jason Chaffetz, and other notable members of the Utah community.
Mr. Lyman is known to be a man of integrity and character who was serving as a county commissioner in Utah when he was subjected to selective prosecution for protesting the Bureau of Land Management’s closure of the Recapture Canyon to ATV riders. He had no other criminal history, but he was arrested and sentenced to 10 days in prison and nearly $96,000 in restitution.
Otis Gordon – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Otis Gordon. Mr. Gordon’s pardon is supported by Senator Tim Scott.
Mr. Gordon has become a Pastor at Life Changer’s International Ministries since his conviction for possession with intent to distribute. In 2015, in the wake of the shooting at a Bible study in Charleston, South Carolina, Mr. Gordon led a prayer session at the United States Capitol. Mr. Gordon mentors at-risk youths in his community. Senator Tim Scott describes Mr. Gordon as “a model citizen” since his release and “focused on helping young men avoid the same traps he once fell in.”
Philip Esformes – Today, President Trump commuted the term of imprisonment of Philip Esformes, while leaving the remaining aspects of his sentence, including supervised release and restitution, intact. This commutation is supported by former Attorneys General Edwin Meese and Michael Mukasey, as well as former Deputy Attorney General Larry Thompson. In addition, former Attorneys General Edwin Meese, John Ashcroft, and Alberto Gonzalez, as well as other notable legal figures such as Ken Starr, have filed in support of his appeal challenging his conviction on the basis of prosecutorial misconduct related to violating attorney-client privilege.
While in prison, Mr. Esformes, who is 52, has been devoted to prayer and repentance and is in declining health.
Supreme Court Justice John Robers is a controversial judge, appointed by George Bush and at the time considered a conservative scholar, who has spent more than a decade delivering a deep betrayal to the American people as one of the more radical left justices on the Supreme Court, and one high profile person who is close to the President is boldly and publically calling Roberts to task with evidence that will damage Roberts.
“Answers to 2 simple questions below will tell We The People ALL we need to know about Chief Justice John Roberts. We, The People, are entitled to answers. You work for us, Justice Roberts. Answer these questions. They will not go away. You cannot fly TRUTH away on Epstein jet,” Wood said.
Woods also claims to have proof of a damaging phone call between Roberts and another justice that proves Roberts should step down.
“The People have list of questions for C.J. Roberts based on bizarre votes on major cases starting with Obamacare. But let’s ask him just two: 1. Are you the John Roberts on Epstein flight logs? 2. Did you say about @realDonaldTrump “the mother f#*ker would never be re-elected.” Wood said.
“Excellent thread to read & consider. A judge must be impartial. Chief Justice has proven by his documented profane comments about @realDonaldTrump that he is biased. At a minimum, barring further embarrassing disclosures, Roberts should recuse himself Trump election cases,” he said.
Attorney Lin Wood has taken up an approach of fiery blows in defense of President Donald J. Trump, against the Supreme Court’s actions, especially of Justice John Roberts, that is unfolding hourly.
Roberts does even more than deliver painful SCOTUS decisions, according to the Brookings Institute, he is also the mastermind behind the troublesome FISA Court:
“Among his non-judicial duties, the Chief Justice of the United States selects sitting federal judges to serve on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in addition to their regular judicial duties. A recent New York Times article reported that ten of the cou ’s 11 current judges, all selected by Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., were appointed to the bench by Republican presidents, as were 86 percent of all Roberts’ designees to the court. Critics say that a FISA court dominated by Republican appointees is likely to be overly sympathetic to government requests. This controversy has awakened a broader debate about the authority that has accumulated in the office of chief justice.
HAMMER TIME- WOODS TAKES ROBERTS TO THE WOODSHED
“The People have a list of questions for C.J. Roberts based on bizarre votes on major cases starting with Obamacare. But let’s ask him just two: 1. Are you the John Roberts on Epstein flight logs? 2. Did you say about @realDonaldTrump “the mother f#*ker would never be re-elected.” He posted, alluding to a secret phone call.
“Chief Justice John Roberts wields great power. (1) has significant influence in selecting cases for review (2) presides over oral arguments (3) leads a discussion of cases among the justices. When a court renders an opinion, if in the majority, he chooses who writes court’s opinion.” he wrote.
Calls for Wood to release the phone call he refers to:
There is proof that Roberts could have a bias against Trump:
Wood’s pointed words comes at the same time a Supreme Court Clerk reports Roberts was overheard screaming about Trump:
CCP? Wood posted that he believes many officials are lying and taking money from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) It is unclear from his posts if he believes Roberts to be in that group.
“We The People have reached the point where we have seen & experienced enough corruption in OUR government. Enough is always enough. Our elected officials are dirty. They need to come clean. Here is some simple advice on how to clean up the mess you have made of our country. (1) Obey one of God’s Ten Commandments – tell the TRUTH.
“Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.” – Exodus 20:16 Following this simple rule would be refreshing to We The People. The truth would bring light to our present darkness. (2) If you speak TRUTH, you will find favor with We The People. Your rewards will be great. “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” – Revelation 22:14 Beats CCP money. (3) If you continue to lie to We The People for CCP $, power, & influence, it will not end well for you. We will FIRE you. Not good. “For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.” – Revelation 22:15,” Wood posted.
In the same way that vaccine makers are exempted from legal liability if someone who gets the vaccine contracts the disease it was that, the liberals trying to do the same thing to gun manufacturer. The purpose behind limiting liability for vaccine makers is because a certain amount of people take a vaccine it will either not work or they will catch the disease the vaccine was made to prevent. There is no 100% prevention for vaccines, but they’re pretty darn close. If vaccine makers were liable to lawsuits, the companies that make vaccines would move overseas. Why allow themselves to become susceptible to lawsuits that could put them out of business?
The liberals understand this, and in their never-ending quest to destroy the Second Amendment, and therefore destroy every American’s God given right to protect themselves and their families, they figured out that they can apply the same method to gun manufacturers.
In 2005, President George W. Bush signed the PLCAA into law to protect US firearms manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits. In those few moments he came out of his basement, Joe Biden campaigned on making firearm manufacturers liable for lawsuits that are linked to the criminal misuse of the products they make. This would be like allowing GM to be held liable if someone intentionally ran someone over with one of their vehicles. It would hold Craftsman liable if someone used one of their hammers to commit a murder. In a word the idea is stupid.
During a New Hampshire Democratic primary debate, on February 7, 2020, Biden took the time to call on Americans being allowed to sue firearm manufacturers in an attempt to one-up the other gun haters in the debate who were all vying to be the top dog who would get to be the one to put every American family at risk of rising crimes, the same way it happens in every country where they take away guns from the law-abiding citizens.
Biden said Sanders’ support for PLCAA was a “mistake” that gave “gun manufacturers … a loophole that does not allow them to be sued for the carnage they are creating.” And no one in the media ever asked him how the manufacturers were creating carnage and not the animals that misuse guns to harm people.
Biden added, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that, and it’s going to hard.”
During a speech in South Carolina a couple weeks later Biden looked right into the camera and said directly to gun manufacturers, “I’m going to take you down.”
The PLCAA doesn’t allow gun manufacturers to create weapons for the sole purpose of criminals using them with abandon. To the contrary, the law protects gun manufacturers from lawsuits in scenarios where the guns in question were made and sold legally. Biden wants to throw those protections out, and that would be the beginning of the end for gun owners to be able to protect themselves and their loved ones.
So that you understand that his threat to gun manufacturers wasn’t just a flash in the pan to gain votes in the primary, during a gun control forum in Las Vegas in October 2019, Biden bragged that making gun manufacturers able to be sued would end up causing “change overnight.”
Let’s remind people what the Second Amendment actually says:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
That one sentence says that the federal government cannot even have a conversation about gun laws. Forget the years of unconstitutional rulings by gun-hating lawyers in black robes. The Second Amendment clearly states in the final clause “shall not be infringed” to mean that the government can not create any laws that will hinder the free exercise of owning and using firearms to protect yourself. Any attempt of any president to do so should be met with impeachment.
What progressives want is to make guns so expensive that average Americans can’t afford to buy them. Lawsuits always end up costing the consumer more money, because the company sued has to pass the losses of lawsuits onto the customer in higher prices for products or services. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to make a profit and would go out of business. That’s what Biden and his progressive Second Amendment haters would try to do and it’s as unamerican as it gets.
