If there’s one thing obvious
about the liberal progressive
left — as evidenced by
Barack Hussein Obama —
they embrace the criminal,
the illegal, not the law-
abiding and the legal citizen.
The progressive socialist left
is willing to go to the mat
for criminal illegal aliens,
all to the detriment of the
law-abiding American citizen.
It’s far easier for the left to
blame legal, law-abiding
gun owners. And based
on Obama’s actions, he is
the felons’ best friend.
As reported by Fox News, “President Obama on Monday pardoned 78 people and granted another 153 commutations, amounting to the most acts of clemency granted by a U.S. president ever in a single day.
White House Counsel Neil Eggleston announced the decisions in an official blog post. He described all the individuals being pardoned or seeing their sentences shortened as “deserving.”
“The 231 individuals granted clemency today have all demonstrated that they ady to make use – or have already made use – of a second chance,” he wrote. He also previewed additional clemency decisions in the weeks ahead, saying: “I expect that the President will issue more grants of both commutations and pardons before he leaves office.”
Obama has been granting
commutations at rapid-fire pace
in his final months in office,
focusing primarily on shortening
sentences of those convicted of
drug offenses rather than pardons.
Pardons amount to forgiveness
of a crime that removes restrictions
on the right to vote, hold state or
local office, or sit on a jury. The
pardon also lessens the stigma
arising from the conviction. Eggleston
said Obama has now pardoned a
total of 148 people during his
presidency and has shortened
the sentences of 1,176 people,
including 395 serving life sentences.”

However, in doing a little analysis,
one finds felony gun offenses
listed with some of those receiving
a Christmas gift from President
Obama. Earlier this week we shared with you a report about
an estimated 850,000 criminal
illegal aliens walking the streets
of America…certainly occupying
“safe space” in sanctuary cities.
What I find perplexing and
hypocritical is how President
Obama — and the left —
demonize law-abiding gun
owners, yet offer pardons and
commutations for drug offenses.
And I’m sorry, but I tend to
believe drugs are a violent
crime, as they destroy people’s
lives — not just the addict who
may die, but those who are
victimized by drug users.
Then again, why should we
expect anything different
from a president who admitted
drug use himself?
Hmm, I don’t think Obama
pardoned Army 1LT Clint Lorance
in this flurry. Why, of course not?
Why pardon a young man who
enemy who is sitting in Ft.
Leavenworth prison facing
a 20 year sentence? You
know, drug offenders are
more important to Obama,
to the left, than a young man
who sits in the same facility
incarcerated with Nidal Hasan —
guilty of “workplace violence”
according to Obama.
There is a lot to be said about
this Obama action.
But for me, knowing that 1LT
Clint Lorance still sits in prison,
while drug offenders are released…
that tells me all I need to know about the character of one
Barack Hussein Obama.
