Pardon Their Hypocrisy, Pardon My Disgust.

Pardon Their Hypocrisy, Pardon My Disgust. By Joe Connor
The mainstream media and political elites continue their hypocritical attack on President Trump’s pardoning of Army Lt. Clint Lorance, Green Beret Maj. Matt Golsteyn and Navy Seal Chief Eddie Gallager; three men who dedicated their lives to the protection of America. Little mention has been made that in August 1999 the Clintons offered executive clemency (commuting sentences) to sixteen members of the infamous Marxist Puerto Rican terrorist groups Los Macheteros and Armed Forces for National Liberation (together “FALN”). There was no mention that in his last days in office, President Obama handed a second clemency to FALN leader Oscar Lopez Rivera, who was so dedicated to his cause and his comrades that he refused the 1999 Clinton grant and chose to stay in prison. (The contrast here is so stark, so dramatic, that it shines like a supernova in the black of space. Pardons for unrepentant murderers was not only OK, it was a great thing? And those terrorists and killers are still honored widely. But pardons for men who offered their lives in defense of this country are somehow awful, objectionable, and bring down bitter criticism of the President? We should all be grateful to this son of a murdered father for shining a spotlight on this travesty. --Del)
