The Presidential Pardon Conservatives Have Been Waiting For

In a tweet on Thursday morning, Trump announced his plans

Published

on

Trump has apparently been looking for people to pardon recently. Last week, in a move that would have garnered much more praise had the President been a Democrat, Trump gave a posthumous pardon to Jack Johnson, the African-American boxing champion who was arrested in 1913 for transporting his wife, a white woman, across state lines.

The mainstream media complained that the pardon was “105 years too late” stunningly suggesting that Trump could have done more to combat racism 100 years ago. 

Anyway, regardless of a petty media narrative that can’t stop for one moment to even provide Trump with neutral coverage, POTUS has been on a roll with his pardons, apparently, announcing this morning that he will be pardoning conservative author and convicted campaign finance law violator Dinesh D’Souza.

D’Souza pled guilty in 2014 to making straw donations to the campaign of his Dartmouth friend, Wendy Long. As he details in his book, Stealing America, he explains how he reimbursed friends for donations to Long’s campaign, unaware this was illegal.

While it was indeed illegal, the eight-month sentence of supervised living in California, a $30,000 fine, and mandated psychological counseling, D’Souza explains, were the first time anyone received such a sentence for campaign finance violation. He has always maintained that the move was political retribution for his vocal critique of Obama.

In Stealing America, D’Souza recounts the many bemused reactions from his fellow inmates when he told them why he was locked up with them.

In a tweet on Thursday morning, Trump announced his plans to pardon the author and filmmaker:

D’Souza retweeted the announcement on his own page.

Beto O’Rourke Drops Bombshell About Connection To Slavery

Where’s the liberal outrage?

Published

on

In a move that should, if the left were consistent, spell the end of his political aspirations, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke revealed that both he and his wife are descendants of slave owners. Yes, a consistent application of the beliefs of the modern-day progressive should see Beto dropping from the race and spending the rest of his life attempting to atone for the sins of his ancestors. Probably not going to actually happen though. You know, because hypocrisy or something. via The Daily Wire: The failed Texas Senate candidate, who is losing ground in the presidential race, made the revelation in a Medium post, saying that he was recently given documents that revealed his family’s past. “A paternal great-great-great grandfather of mine, Andrew Cowan Jasper, owned these two women in the 1850s,” O’Rourke wrote. “There are also records showing that a maternal great-great-great grandfather, Frederick Williams, most likely owned slaves in the 1860s (“most likely,” because we are not certain that the Frederick Williams who is my ancestor and the Frederick Williams who owned slaves are the same person, but there’s enough circumstantial data to lead me to conclude that it’s likely).” “Records also showed that Amy had an ancestor who owned slaves and another who was a member of the Confederate Army,” O’Rourke added. O’Rourke’s claim comes after the media last week tried to tie Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s opposition to reparations to the fact that his great-great-grandfathers owned slaves. When the media tried to push that narrative they were met with the fact that former President Barack Obama’s ancestors were slave owners. Sen. Kamala Harris’ ancestors also owned slaves. So where is all of the classic liberal outrage over these folks having this sort of bloodline? Surely they would have no problem striking at these kind…

Trump Administration Set To Carry Out Major Crackdown On Asylum Abuse

This is going to make liberals absolutely furious.

Published

on

The Trump administration has announced some major changes in the country’s current asylum policies that will inevitably lead to a sizable reduction in the number of individuals that are eligible for asylum who are trying to enter the country at the southern border. If you listen closely, you can hear the left already throwing a total fit over this, ready to compare the president to a whole plethora of deplorable fascist world leaders throughout history. via Daily Wire: “The new rule, published in the Federal Register, would require most migrants entering through America’s southern border to first seek asylum in one of the countries they traversed – whether in Mexico, in Central America, or elsewhere on their journey,” Fox News reported. In a statement, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) highlighted three limited exceptions: (1) an alien who demonstrates that he or she applied for protection from persecution or torture in at least one of the countries through which the alien transited en route to the United States, and the alien received a final judgment denying the alien protection in such country; (2) an alien who demonstrates that he or she satisfies the definition of “victim of a severe form of trafficking in persons” provided in 8 C.F.R. § 214.11; or, (3) an alien who has transited en route to the United States through only a country or countries that were not parties to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the 1967 Protocol, or the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. The statement went on to detail that a very small minority of these individuals actually receive asylum, however, a large number of requests burdens the system and undermines its humanitarian purposes. The statement also notes the large number of requests…
