Roger Stone’s Commutation: Completely Justified and Righteous

As expected, President Donald Trump commuted the sentence of Roger Stone Friday evening. – Naturally, liberals, leftists, socialist, Marxists and fascists – but I repeat myself – went nuts on Twitter. Here’s an example:

The person who wrote that drivel is actually a “legal analyst” for NBC News. Now you know why nothing NBC reports about legal matters is right. The morning of November 4 is going to be a really bad time for this guy, as he wakes up and realizes that he still has four more years of President Donald Trump to go.

Look, Roger Stone is not a choir boy. In fact, he’s a largely unsavory guy, a sleazy political operative, and in fact one the thousands of people who over the years helped to make the DC swamp such a horrible and corrupt place. But that doesn’t mean he should spend the rest of his life in prison. Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany did a fine job of explaining why in a written message sent out to the corrupt news media last night:

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency commuting the unjust sentence of Roger Stone, Jr.
Roger Stone is a victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media perpetuated for years in an attempt to undermine the Trump Presidency.  There was never any collusion between the Trump Campaign, or the Trump Administration, with Russia.  Such collusion was never anything other than a fantasy of partisans unable to accept the result of the 2016 election.  The collusion delusion spawned endless and farcical investigations, conducted at great taxpayer expense, looking for evidence that did not exist.  As it became clear that these witch hunts would never bear fruit, the Special Counsel’s Office resorted to process-based charges leveled at high-profile people in an attempt to manufacture the false impression of criminality lurking below the surface.  These charges were the product of recklessness borne of frustration and malice.This is why the out-of-control Mueller prosecutors, desperate for splashy headlines to compensate for a failed investigation, set their sights on Mr. Stone.  Roger Stone is well known for his nearly 50 years of work as a consultant for high-profile Republican politicians, including President Ronald Reagan, Senator Bob Dole, and many others.  He is also well known for his outspoken support for President Donald J. Trump and opposition to Hillary Clinton.Mr. Stone was charged by the same prosecutors from the Mueller Investigation tasked with finding evidence of collusion with Russia.  Because no such evidence exists, however, they could not charge him for any collusion-related crime.  Instead, they charged him for his conduct during their investigation.  The simple fact is that if the Special Counsel had not been pursuing an absolutely baseless investigation, Mr. Stone would not be facing time in prison.

In addition to charging Mr. Stone with alleged crimes arising solely from their own improper investigation, the Mueller prosecutors also took pains to make a public and shameful spectacle of his arrest.  Mr. Stone is a 67-year-old man, with numerous medical conditions, who had never been convicted of another crime.  But rather than allow him to surrender himself, they used dozens of FBI agents with automatic weapons and tactical equipment, armored vehicles, and an amphibious unit to execute a pre-dawn raid of his home, where he was with his wife of many years.  Notably, CNN cameras were present to broadcast these events live to the world, even though they swore they were not notified—it was just a coincidence that they were there together with the FBI early in the morning.

Not only was Mr. Stone charged by overzealous prosecutors pursing a case that never should have existed, and arrested in an operation that never should have been approved, but there were also serious questions about the jury in the case.  The forewoman of his jury, for example, concealed the fact that she is a member of the so-called liberal “resistance” to the Trump Presidency.  In now-deleted tweets, this activist-juror vividly and openly attacked President Trump and his supporters.

Mr. Stone would be put at serious medical risk in prison.  He has appealed his conviction and is seeking a new trial.  He maintains his innocence and has stated that he expects to be fully exonerated by the justice system.  Mr. Stone, like every American, deserves a fair trial and every opportunity to vindicate himself before the courts.  The President does not wish to interfere with his efforts to do so.  At this time, however, and particularly in light of the egregious facts and circumstances surrounding his unfair prosecution, arrest, and trial, the President has determined to commute his sentence.  Roger Stone has already suffered greatly.  He was treated very unfairly, as were many others in this case.  Roger Stone is now a free man!

[End]

What the White House leaves out is the fact that Stone has been bankrupted by this despicable, Soviet-style persecution, forced to sell his home to pay his legal bills, and has been denied the right to make a living for over a year by the corrupt leftist judge in the case, Obama appointee Amy Berman Jackson.

This was not a fair trial – it is not how the American system of justice is supposed to function. Because of that undeniable reality, this commutation is completely justified.

Roger Stone is no threat to anyone, and it is fair to point out that the very same leftist nitwits who are wailing about this action on Twitter remained studiously silent when Barack Obama used his powers of pardon and commutation hundreds of times to free drug offenders and others who had committed violent crimes.

Enjoy your freedom, Mr. Stone, and don’t screw it up.

That is all.

NBC News is a Gigantic Dumpster Fire, and the Deep State Cabal Loves it

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The ADP estimate on private sector jobs additions for April came in at 204,000, beating estimates that it would tally 190,000.  The Trump economy just keeps humming along.

NBC News is just a gigantic dumpster fire these days, but then you already knew that.  In addition to all the sexual harassment allegations hovering around its icon Tom Brokaw, NBC’s fake news division suffered yet another huge embarrassment by reporting a story that was so, so, so fake that even Special Counsel Robert Mueller apparently insisted they go back and correct it.  That, friends, is seriously fake news.

Around noon, MSNBC – NBC’s aggressively-fake news affiliate – reported that Mueller’s office has been wire-tapping the phone calls of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, whom the Special Counsel Gestapo had already subjected to jack-booted thug raids on his home, office and hotel room in early April.  NBC breathlessly reported all afternoon that the intercepted phone calls from Cohen included – gasp! – one to the White House.  The White House immediately questioned the story, given that any such wiretap would clearly be illegal unless the SC had obtained a warrant from a federal judge, and Rudy Giuliani even predicted on Fox News mid-afternoon that the story would turn out to be fake.

But NBC clung to its fake “reporting” for about four and a half hours until, at about 4:30, the weaselly Chuck Todd was forced to admit that, in fact, Cohen’s phones had not been tapped, which would mean  that the Mueller Gestapo had been able to actually listen in to his conversations.  The truth – as far as the Mueller team is capable of speaking the truth, anyway – is that Cohen’s phone activity has been monitored by what is known as a “pen register”, which simply allows the feds to note the phone numbers he is calling.  This massive intrusion into a U.S. citizen’s privacy apparently requires no warrant.

This incident, of course, is just one of dozens of such instances we have seen over the last 16 months, in which some national fake news outlet reports some explosive “BREAKING NEWS!!!!”  that, if true, would be damaging to President Trump or someone around him, is allowed to linger in the public space for hours, often days, and then is forced to be retracted by the reporting fake news entity.

Hey, remember all those similar incidents that took place during the 8 years of Barack Obama?  No?  Neither do I.  Because this pretty much never happened during the Obama years.

Here’s why:  The fake news establishment loved Barack Obama.  Many in the White House press corps literally worshiped him – remember how so many of them compared Obama to Jesus Christ upon his election? – they probably prayed to him on a daily basis.  Barack Obama was the master, and the fake news reporters were his loyal lap dogs.

Lap dogs don’t go around pissing in their master’s lap – if they do, their master is going to stop petting them and stroking them and cooing baby talk into their ears, which is what Obama did with the journalistic profession for 8 years, in the process killing it dead.

These same lap dogs turned into a pack of rabid pit bulls when Donald Trump won the 2016 election.  They wake up every morning frothing at the mouth, intent upon doing anything they can to help Robert Mueller and the deep state thugs – like Rod Rosenstein – who remain in the FBI and Justice Department work to bring down this duly elected President.  Any time some “anonymous source” “with knowledge of the special counsel’s investigation” tosses them some potentially damaging nugget of “information”, they rush it into print or on-air without editorial oversight or the slightest care about whether or not it is true.

Because to today’s fake news media, “truth” is a relative concept.  Something is only “true” if it is damaging to the President or those around him and thus fits the narrative the media/deep state is attempting to brainwash into the public mind.  Stories that are not damaging to the President – like North Korea agreeing to release its American prisoners at Mr. Trump’s insistence – don’t get covered.  Stories that are damaging – like allegations of a 12-year old affair by a porn star – get covered ad nauseum.

This is all part the media/deep state game plan.  In NBC’s way of thinking, the embarrassment of having to correct a story pales in comparison to the damage done to the President of the United States by leaving it lingering out there in the public consciousness for four and a half hours.  After all, most people who heard the initial story will never know about the correction, and thus will walk around misinformed – and mis-informing their friends and family members – for the foreseeable future.

This is the Big Lie in action.  Joseph Goebbels would have felt right at home in today’s U.S. news media.

Just another day in the Big Lie lives in America.

That is all.
