Justice Served: Roger Stone Expected To Be Commuted By Trump As Early As Friday Night

Roger Stone

Mere days before his prison sentence was set to begin, Roger Stone is expected to have his sentence commuted by President Donald Trump, following a months-long battle by Stone for commutation. The President has said his trial should have been deemed a mistrial.

Fox News reported that the president could sign a commutation of Stone’s sentence as soon as Friday evening.

The longtime political operative was sentenced to more than three years in prison for a slew of charges stemming from Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian collusion — Stone says he is “wrongly convicted.”

Stone’s trial was widely criticized as a forewoman had anti-Trump and anti-Stone posts on her social media pages, showing her actions on the jury were blatantly poltiical.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson, during her reading of pre-written notes for the sentencing of Stone, read claims and charges against him that had nothing whatsoever to do with Russia nor the charges he was actually facing. Instead, she claimed it was about Stone’s belligerence — though he never testified — and she claimed that his motivation was to cover up for President Trump, despite this never being charged in the case. Evidence was never displayed in the trial, yet she named it as reason for the hefty sentence.

The longtime-Trump advocate told Sara Carter his only crime was not rolling over on President Trump — he refused to fabricate stories about the President, according to Stone, and this is why the full force of the FBI was used against him.

Stone was ordered to report to a medium-security facility in Jesup, Georgia next week — the same prison just released multiple child pornograpahers over concerns of COVID-19. Yet, the 67-year-old Stone lost his bid for serving his sentence at home — he told the Sara Carter Show this was a “death sentence” as he has pre-existing conditions and is highly vulnerable to the virus.

Trump recently said it was ‘incredible’ that It ‘wasn’t declared a mistrial or more.”

Stone was arrested by 29 heavily-armed officers, including the aquatic team, with weapons drawn in the early morning of Jan 25, 2019. Nevermind the fact that Stone is elderly and his wife is deaf, Mueller and his time felt the sleeping Stone was a threat big enough for a massive arrest — all captured by a CNN team camped in front of his Florida property.

Stone recently told the Sara Carter Show exclusively that he was “praying fervently” for a commutation of his sentence. He said his fate was solely in his longtime friend President Donald Trump’s hands.

It looks like his prayers have been answered and justice was finally served in the case of Roger Stone.

Canadian-U.S. border illegal crossings up 240% over previous year

The vulnerability of the northern border of the United States is being weaponized in the war on illegal migration. 2023 saw a 240% increase of individuals apprehended from just one year prior. Not only is the border with Canada significantly longer than its border with Mexico, but its ports of entry are often understaffed while the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is forced to prioritize the southern surge.

According to recent data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in 2023 authorities halted over 12,000 migrants attempting illegal crossings at the Canadian border. The number is a 240% increase from the preceding year when 3,579 individuals were apprehended.

ADN America reports that approximately 70% of the illegal crossings took place along a 295-mile stretch along the northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire border called the Swanton Sector.

Chief patrol agent for the sector, Robert Garcia, posted on social media that the 3,100 individuals apprehended were from 55 different countries. 

Garcia wrote “the record-breaking surge of illegal entries from Canada continues in Swanton Sector” and he specifically mentioned that the arrest of 10 Bangladeshi citizens was prompted by a citizen’s report in Champlain, New York.

Surprisingly, ADN reports:

A significant number of those engaging in illegal crossings are Mexicans who exploit the opportunity to fly to Canada without a visa, also avoiding the presence of cartels in their home countries.

Experts suggest that migrants can purchase a $350 one-way plane ticket from Mexico City or Cancun to Montreal or Toronto. This route is perceived as offering a lower likelihood of being turned away compared to those crossing the southern border.
