Donald Trump Pardons

Though the issue is no longer of interest to the media, a bit of a postmortem on the Trump pardons seems in order.  The issue of presidential pardons by President Trump had been a front-burner story for more than two years.  The original bogus reports speculated that Trump would be pardoning all kinds of his associates, his family and even himself.  If re-elected, he would pardon just about everyone ensnared in the bogus investigation into Russian collusion by the Trump administration.

Democrats and their media allies promoted that conspiracy theory for three years, but Special Counsel Robert Mueller totally debunked it. Still, individuals fell victim to what is known as the “perjury trap” – finding someone allegedly lying about an investigation into a crime that never occurred.

If Trump was not re-elected, we were told that he would then pardon more aides and advisors, including himself.  There was speculation – even “confirmed reports” (malicious gossip, that is) from unnamed sources that Trump was going to pardon himself.  In other words, Trump was being repeatedly attacked for something the press alleged he could to … might have done.  But not a scintilla of evidence concerning what he might be planning to do – vicious rumors paraded as news.

Based on alleged insider information, Trump was all but certain to pardon General Michael Flynn, political gadfly Roger Stone (who had previously received a commutation), former Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort, campaign aide Steve Papadopoulos, Trump personal attorney Rudi Giuliani, his daughter and son-in-law, his son and himself.

These speculative accusatory negative stories were filled with hypothetical responses to the falsely alleged Trump intention.  Is it constitutional to pardon himself?  Can presidential pardons be nullified?  Do we need to change the Constitution to limit a President’s pardoning powers?  All that negative reporting on pure partisan speculation.  No evidence that Trump intended to do all or any of those things – and in the final analysis, he did none of it.

With the latest bogus theory deflated by reality, the media tried desperately to salvage their unsalvageable reputation.  They suggested – again without evidence – that the events on Capitol Hill were so damaging to Trump that his aides convinced him that he could not follow through with his plans.  They tried to inflate the Steve Bannon pardon to epic proportions to fill the void left from the collapse of their vicious speculations.  The Bannon angle was just not big enough to fill that vacuum.  So, they just walked away from their reporting as if they never misled the public – no retraction, no apology.

The pardons story is now a small speck in the rearview mirror.  But do not expect the east coast news establishment to admit a mistake, apologize or issue a correction.  If they did that for all their false stories, they would hardly have time or space to create new false speculative narratives against half the population.

So, there ‘tis.

  1. Darrell, you put in the wrong person. You meant our illegitimate president, Joe Biden, didn’t you? Especially with his dealings with China and Ukraine.

  2. Darrell Pitcher is a dumb bunny that believes the crap from lamestream media. What a moron!

  3. Darrell Pitcher Prove it. I want true facts because I can look up anything and cross reference it. Funny thing with Trump he did so much good and no one other president has ever accomplished as much as he did in the little time he was in office. We were never in any war actually the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan were actually removed from there tours of duty and sent back to US soil. Peace treaties with Palestine and the neighbors. There was a hard stance placed on Iraq and several of there Generals killed. That right there was great towards peace and held a hard line towards any aggression towards our troops ten fold if they were stupid enough to try. North Korea Stopped testing missiles. And actually sat down and talked about reason. No other president has ever accomplished that ever. There was a hard line about bringing jobs back to the United states again to employ our workers not some other countries. Gas prices and diesel prices were in 1.99 for gas and 2.05 for diesel. More money in your pocket. He was securing the southern border which frankly was a godsend that should have been done years ago. My 401 grew in the 4 years he was in office to the numbers it used to be when Obama was in office. Thank god I was able to draw out all my 401 before Biden took Office……..But you all hated the man so badly because he wasn’t one of the good ole boys in congress. So falsify records that have been proven otherwise about even being involve with Russia. Lets see what has Biden done sine he has taken over as President. Made at least a handful of executive orders all and all of them have hurt the American People one way or another. Reinstated Obama care( what a joke that is), Shut down the Keystone Pipeline something he told Canada he wouldn’t do. There is 11,000 jobs that went away and well into the millions of equipment and pipelines that contractors are left holding the bag with. I know not your problem right. Stopped all fracking in the USA and drill leases on public lands. So know instead of keeping the fuel prices and oil cost down we will be paying higher prices for oil from foreign nations. So our 1.99 and 2.05 diesel prices will be in the 5.00 a gallon for gas and higher for diesel. That won’t effect me and my job much I will just charge a higher rate for the goods I deliver and pass the cost on down to the customers and they will just mark up the prices in the stores. Which effects everyone. Most everything Biden has done so far has impacted the American people in this country and just think what 4 years of this president will do if he is there that long before someone in his own party takes him out for power. Then we will have Kamala Harris as our president with Nancy Pelosi as her second in command. I hope you enjoy your 4 years because in the last 7 days this president has spent 6 trillion dollars at this rate the Dollar will be solvent and not worth the paper it is written on. In four years of this president our country will be owned by China. Because that is where Obama sold most of his pieces of paper too for getting cash to spend. Should be an interesting 2 years at least till the people see that the Democrat party pulled the wool over there eyes and has been lied to again just for Power and greed. Hope you enjoy it you voted this POS into office.

  4. Well what goes round comes round, Trump- the master preacher of fake news gets his comeuppance.

  5. Thanks for the thoughts you are giving on this website. Another thing I would like to say is the fact that getting hold of copies of your credit file in order to examine accuracy of the detail would be the first measures you have to carry out in credit improvement. You are looking to clean your credit reports from destructive details problems that spoil your credit score.

  6. One thing I have actually noticed is the fact there are plenty of misconceptions regarding the banking companies intentions any time talking about foreclosed. One fantasy in particular would be the fact the bank wishes to have your house. Your banker wants your dollars, not your house. They want the amount of money they gave you having interest. Staying away from the bank will draw a new foreclosed summary. Thanks for your article.

  7. I have noticed that in digital cameras, extraordinary detectors help to focus automatically. The sensors associated with some surveillance cameras change in contrast, while others make use of a beam of infra-red (IR) light, particularly in low lighting. Higher specification cameras from time to time use a blend of both methods and probably have Face Priority AF where the digital camera can ‘See’ some sort of face while keeping your focus only in that. Thank you for sharing your ideas on this website.

  8. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. Nevertheless imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could undeniably be one of the best in its field. Wonderful blog!

  9. I,and the rest of “REAL AMERICANS”
    are getting fed up with the current corrupt GOVERNMENT, pretending to be for AMERICA! “THE TRUTH” will eventually come out and then, and only then, will AMERICA reign again! We are coming for you!!!
