While the mainstream media has been up in arms over President Trump’s decision to commute Roger Stone’s 40-month prison sentence, similar decisions by previous presidents received far more muted reactions.

One pardon issued by then-President Barack Obama stands out in particular.

Attorney Harmeet Dhillon explained the particulars of that case in a recent Fox News appearance:

“The same people clutching their pearls and shrieking about Stone’s commutation, I didn’t hear them complaining when Oscar Rivera was pardoned by President Obama. He was even too much of a terrorist for Clinton to pardon,” Dhillon, of the Center for American Liberty, told “Fox & Friends.”

Lopez was considered a top leader of the Armed Forces of National Liberation, or FALN, an ultranationalist Puerto Rican group that claimed responsibility for more than 100 bombings at government buildings, department stores, banks and restaurants in New York, Chicago, Washington and Puerto Rico during the 1970s and early 1980s. Obama commuted his sentence in January 2017.

Dhillon said Trump’s move was based on the “Mueller witch hunt.” On the other hand, Dhillon said that Bill Clinton pardoned one of his major campaign donors, Marc Rich, who was a fugitive from justice.

“And that was an out-of-the-norm pardon,” Dhillon said.

Other controversial presidential pardons include President Richard Nixon pardoning Jimmy Hoffa, Jimmy Carter giving Patty Hearst a get out of jail free card, and (once again) Obama commuting the sentence of Chelsea Manning after taxpayers footed the bill for her sex change.

What a sad state this country is in. Like spoiled children who would rather throw a temper tantrum and destroy the house they live in to get their way, they would be better served if they were thankful for the blessings they already possess and exercise a little commonsense and self-control. Once this country is destroyed by the left, the freedoms and liberties we once had will disappear forever. Then those same spoiled children will try to complain but their voices will be silenced by the same leaders who used them to execute their global plans. Sadly, I’m LOL at the fools who don’t realize they are being used.

The woman that Obama set free, almost his last day in office, is a Terrorist, & the One leading the Groups, that are Now Destroying our America. Wake up before it is to late. Pray, that the Evil among us will be Destroyed by Their own Evil. God Bless America, & God Bless All Americans.
