President Trump Commutes Sentence of Alice Marie Johnson…

President Donald Trump granted clemency today for Mrs. Alice Marie Johnson, a week after Mrs. Kim Kardashian West advocated on her behalf during an Oval Office meeting with the President.

Mrs. Johnson, a 63-year-old great-grandmother is a first-time nonviolent drug offender who was given a life sentence without parole. She will be released from a federal prison in Aliceville, Alabama, where she has been serving her sentence since 1996.

White House – Today, President Donald J. Trump granted a commutation to Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old great-grandmother who has served almost 22 years in Federal prison for a first-time criminal offense.

Ms. Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades. Despite receiving a life sentence, Alice worked hard to rehabilitate herself in prison, and act as a mentor to her fellow inmates.

Her Warden, Case Manager, and Vocational Training Instructor have all written letters in support of her clemency. According to her Warden, Arcala Washington-Adduci, since [Ms. Johnsons] arrival at this institution, she has exhibited outstanding and exemplary work ethic. She is considered to be a model inmate who is willing to go above and beyond in all work tasks.

While this Administration will always be very tough on crime, it believes that those who have paid their debt to society and worked hard to better themselves while in prison deserve a second chance.  (WH LINK)

    I believe that about 8 years before entering the Presidential race, Donald J Trump had a serious personal encounter with G-d Almighty. Since then, he has been free of scandals, He made a vow to do something important with his Billionaire Playboy life which changed everything.

    I believe that Jesus Christ died on his appointed cross, that we could all be forgiven of ALL of OUR SINS. He grants redemption! I have a full pardon on all my past sins, and I go to Jesus daily to work on my current life as a Christian.

    Besides me and Donald Trump being forgiven, PDJT is using his Presidential Pardon Power to grant redemption to people who deserve / need it, even if the recommendation did not come through the Justice Department.

    When Jesus said, “Go, and sin no more.” the woman he spoke to did not come through the DoJ. She was dragged before Jesus by the Pharisees. Jesus had an open door policy for redemption. I am glad that PDJT does, too. Kim Kardashian West knocked on the door, and found it was open.

    I praise G-d for his servant, PDJT.

      Once again, PDJT did the right thing. He received the information, studied it, and made his considered decision based on the recommendation of the people who know the rehabilitation that this prisoner has undergone during her 20 years behind bars. I cannot see how justice would be served by having Ms. Johnson spend more time behind bars.

      Not surprising that the progressives hate this as it disputes their narrative that POTUS is a racist.

      Importantly, this evidences the important work behind the scenes of Jared Kushner on several matters, including prison reform .It is not just lip service directed to siphoning minority voters from the democrat plantation. Much outstanding work is being done around the country in certain states, but much, much more needs to be done.

      If we put God into prisons, as is happening in many places now, very good things will come of it and society will be better protected. Kudos to the Baptists for their tireless work in prisons over many years.

      God bless our Lion, his family, all patriots and God fearing people of all colors, faiths and politics.

      Marvelous. Lovely. Thank you Newt Love. I believe this; President Trump has been an unrecognized member of God’s own tribe, born into it decades ago, yet persisting in the ordinary, like many Christians do. God alone turned Trump towards Himself in the wilderness where Trump lived; it was there God, not men, ordained and anointed and spoke to Donald Trump and drew him closer. It was there, away from a single human eye, the encounter took place to lead a war on all that threatens God’s household.

      Half the tribes saw the anointing and one half did not. And so it will be till the end. It’s not Trump they hate, it’s God they hate. Not recognizing this member of God’s household is an old problem; in spite of men’s opinions, God moved in Trump’s life; He anointed and appointed him outside the brick and mortar walls.The ‘prophets’ are mistaken, Trump is not a Cyrus.
      Trump is not a Babylonian.

      Cyrus did nothing Trump is charged to do. These ‘prophets’ are befuddled. God had already sent His own True Prophet into the wilderness to transform the stray. These ‘prophets’ have watered down the commission on Trump and contrary to Cyrus, who remained in Babylon, Trump first went to war. Cyrus didn’t lead Israel in any war. First Trump showed his authority in war in the 3rd month; then he led us into this Great War, of and by and in the Holy Spirit, with spoken words; dismantling a corrupted kingdom right here on earth with words. I Samuel 9 – 11 and the admonition in chapter 12.

    Anyone claiming to be “conservative” who believes drugs should be prohibited is a hypocrite, flat out and indisputably.

    The right to self-determination and bodily autonomy should be as absolute as the right to bear arms in any conservative’s mind.

    ****”But drug use addles judgment and increases the likelihood someone does something harmful to others”:

    Then prosecute them for whatever harm they actually do, not the d*mn drugs, or are you ready to put this same rationale of yours into action on another front and start demanding guns be banned because they “increase the convenience and likelihood someone can do harm to others”.

    ****”But the gangs and violence”

    The gangs only exist because prohibition laws FORCE anyone who wants to sell or buy drugs to operate outside of the law in a wild-west vigilante world. For reference: see the difference between the alcohol industry before prohibition, during prohibition, and following prohibition.

    When an activity is lawful big business takes over and operates reputably.

    ****”But muh law and order”

    People in low income brackets WANT to get off by addling their minds, and by legislating their limousine liberal morality through FELONIZATION, moneyed elitists create a massive rift between the lower classes and the police who need their cooperation to maintain safety and order in their neighborhoods.

    By opposing the popular will of the lower classes, these prohibition laws turn neighborhoods into warzones by estranging the people from the police who are supposed to protect them.

    Repeal the prohibition laws and watch neighborhoods clean up overnight.

        The same arguments leftists make for banning guns are parroted verbatim by “fake conservatives” who want drugs banned.

        When that argument falls flat, you resort to Alinskyite attacks upon the person’s character rather than their argument.

                  It’s hard enough to find competent help, so we should legalize a drug that impairs short term memory loss and removes ambition? Pot is a gateway drug, IMHO. I smoked weed on and off for twenty years and have been 100% sober for 20 years this coming January 1st. I could pick it up and never touch it for months at a time so I don’t think anyone could claim I was addicted but I know numerous people who are addicted. I have 1st hand experience involving myself and other folks as to the destruction pot smoking causes. Legalizing drugs as “ANON” thinks is appropriate is like blocking punches with your face. BTW, “Led Zeppelin II” and “Physical Graffiti” are my 2 favorite Led Zep albums.

        Ad hominem attacks, which in context this is, are unhelpful and rude. Moreover, Anon’s comment was well written, rationally constructed, and in the context of internet/blog writing even had pretty good grammar. So if he can smoke pot on a regular basis and still function as well as anyone here, what’s your beef? That is, btw, a rhetorical question.

There are a lot of mental issues and control freaks have one of the biggest issues there ever was, not focusing on life management that is their own life instead of trying to not just direct but to compel others to follow the path not chosen by the free individual but the unwilling subject of the “direction” set forth by another “governor”. My life doesn’t need any extra “bosses” whose agenda is to rule over me like a parent over a child, and like a lot of other people who feel the same way ….if we need “help” with some life management issue….don’t call us…we’ll call you.

              The world hasn’t been presented a death toll or societal concerns attributable to marijuana. So the prohibition against it has been radically disproportional and irrational hysteria that never has been justice but has been totally unjustified.

              The entire marijuana prohibition has brought more disrepute and credibility problems to government than has the totality of any negative impact on society ever been caused by the object of that prohibition, whose defiant users correctly identify that prohibition as a political persecution authored by control freaks, who are damned liars, false witness accusers, and corrupt judges. Marijuana prohibition has been MUCH more of a liability for government, and for society a greater evil than any use of marijuana ever was an evil or any deserved stigma for its users. That is a bigger “inconvenient truth” than any climate change ever could be.

      The right to self-determination and bodily autonomy should be as absolute as the right to bear arms in any conservative’s mind.

      First question….why? Second question…how far does this right to bodily autonomy go? Do people have the right to chop off their own arm or leg because they feel like it? Does a Typhoid Mary have the right to refuse medication that will stop them from infecting people who come in contact with them?

      By opposing the popular will of the lower classes, these prohibition laws turn neighborhoods into warzones by estranging the people from the police who are supposed to protect them.

      So instead we are going to let poor neighborhoods turn into opium dens where people just works to get their next high? Maybe you are right that this would be better than a warzone, but we won’t know for sure until we do it and measure the results over a decade.

      It was not all that long ago, as laws go, that most of what we now think of as “illegal” recreational drugs were not illegal–their mis-use was just frowned upon socially. Were we more or less safe from drug-related crime and was drug abuse more or less pervasive and destructive of society at large before 1930 or after?

      Are we, as a nation “of the people, by the people, and for the people,” better served by policy based on facts or hysterics?

    The libtards are besides themselves. Kanye starts spouting off about free thinking and refuses to get back on the plantation. And now Kim is working with and praising Trump as he works to right wrongs committed against minorities.

    I’ll hand it to Trump, but it would never have occurred to me to reach out to Kanye or Kim to help pull in the minorities to his/our side. Shows how much love he has for others. Can’t say that about too many of the rich and famous – a cheerful and humble giver who’s given away more than we’ll ever know.

      President Trump has never thought in terms of sides. He sees everyone he encounters as a unique individuals. He sees all Americans as family members and everyone in the world as children of God. He’s always been that way and it makes him very unique. He’s trying to get us to see each other in the same way he does and I love him for it.

Don just told Kanye to pay no attention to the agenda-driven negative types.

      Time will tell if the pardon is a good thing. I will pray for her but what she did was bad. The other bad thing was the life sentence.
      I truly believe that 16 years is long enough for most crimes. Some crimes do deserve the death penalty (like that handed down in TX this past week for the killer (1 of 2) of a young cop. Our prisons are full, both state and federal. Many of the inmates are mental cases and many have no conscience. Those are the ones that need to be ankle cuffed for the rest of their life and perhaps never pardoned.
      Like most everything else in life, the pardon train will have an accident or two along the way. If eveyone jumps on the train, the risk of accidents will increase.
