or, Pardon me?
The push to pardon Hillary has begun. It was being discussed at the very same time on MSNBC and Fox (by Heraldo Revera) with Heraldo talking about how our nation was Soooo deeply divided and how we needed this to ‘heal’… Bull Shit, Heraldo.
It’s the Democratic Machine Talking Point Du Jour. You don’t bag a “two fer” for “healing”. I didn’t catch it on the other stations ( I was just doing a rapid rotation to see if the world had ended… so if it came by 5 minutes either side I’d not have seen it) but the day is young.
Now I think I’m getting a bit more “clue” about all the Street Theatre “Protests” lately. The Soros-Clinton machine needed a “divided nation” to parade and needed “threat to the stability of the nation” to create the context for a pardon of the Criminal In Chief Clinton. Clunk! (Sound of “penny drop”…)
It is already being rolled out as “Like Nixon’s Pardon” with “for anything they might or might not have done”. I.e. a flat out blanket Free Pass for crime.
Dear President Obama:
What do you want left of your legacy? You know that much of the fiscal and regulatory bits are headed for the cutting room floor. Obamacare will survive as a core of a national insurance program, but strongly modified. At this point, how you handle the ‘turn over’ will determine much of your memory. So what is it going to be: “First Black President, who got National Healthcare done” or “That Democratic Machine Politician who pardoned Hillary and made her the quintessential Teflon Don.”? When do we ever hear about President Ford? Oh, yeah, that he pardoned Nixon… THAT is his parenthesis in the history books. The FBI has already given her a pass, Trump will be up to his eyeballs in alligators (what with the deficit ceiling hitting Q1 and blockading everything he wants to do). NOBODY will be looking to divide congress at that moment, and certainly not because of a has-been-in-the-making Hillary. They want to let her go quietly into that good night, not make a martyr of her. Pardon Hillary and The Deplorables will be back in 2 years to clean House and Senate… Let her retire quietly to a beach in the Caribbean and the only headlines will be whatever the most recent OMG thing Trump is tweeting this time, and odds are both houses turn over to Democrats. (I’m sure you know how that works…)
Dear President Elect Trump:
Have your legal team looking into the question of “Can one President overturn a Pardon by another?”. I know, there is no precedent. https://pardonandparole.uslegal.com/issuance-and-revocation-of-pardon/ has this interesting note:
However, after its delivery and acceptance, a pardon cannot be revoked for any cause. This is because then it has passed beyond the control of the officer or body granting it, and has become a valid and operative act. Its recipient can be deprived of its benefits only through some appropriate legal proceeding. This is true even in cases where the pardon was fraudulently obtained.
So I’m sure you can find some “appropriate legal proceeding” if needed. Besides, just think of the mileage to be had out of keeping Hillary twisting in the wind for a year or two. Need a couple of Democratic Senate votes? Just put it on the news that you are moving Hillary closer to trial “for her crimes”…(and in the back room whisper “or you can pass my infrastructure bill…”) Any time the Soros Street Theatre kicks up a fuss, put the Show Trial in the news. Need a good bit of propaganda against the Democrats, just trot out the “Corrupt Clinton’s AND their partners Soros and Obama”. That will keep your Deplorables wound up and “on side”. You can likely milk that all the way through your re-election campaign. After a while, the mantra that “Democrat = Pardon = Corruption” will be cemented in place. “Need to keep those scoundrels out of office to preserve Law & Order” will be a very easy sell.
So now we will see just how deep, and how high, the rot extends.
It is once again up to Obama. Does he want his legacy to be “Pardon of Clinton Machine”, or something better?
If “Pardon”, then it will be really really fun to watch hundreds of others throughout the Clinton / Soros machinery being tried and convicted for her Criminal Enterprise, while she is in the news as the Untouchable Leader. If you can’t get the head of the snake, you grind the rest of it up… Justice will be served, though it might be served tail first and served cold…
