Roger Stone Is Free. Trump Commutes Unjustly Prison Sentence Of Long Time Ally.

Roger Stone is free. He will not have to serve out his time in a prison and that’s all he has asked for since government prosecutors targeted him years ago for his close friendship to President Donald Trump.

Trump commuted Stone’s sentence Friday evening saying that the only reason Stone was targeted was because of the “Russia Hoax” investigation by the FBI under President Obama’s administration.

Civil rights and defense attorney David Schoen, who is representing Stone, said in an earlier interview with me that a commutation or pardon would be the best possible outcome for Stone.

Trump’s commutation came just days before Stone was set to report to prison. There was mounting concern over his age and the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic felt like a death sentence to the elderly Stone, whose wife is deaf and needs his assistance.

Stone has spoken extensively on the The Sara Carter Show podcast over the past month. In an exclusive interview on June 25, Stone asked the President for a commutation over what he described as a “deep state sentence.” Stone was convicted and sentenced to 40 months in prison in February for what prosecutors contend was lying to Congress. It was, however, nothing more than part of the now debunked Russian collusion investigation that was set into motion by President Obama’s FBI and Justice Department. It eventually led to a continuing investigation against President Trump, his campaign, his administration and anyone with close ties to him. Sine former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, both the DOJ Inspector General and Congress have uncovered a mountain of evidence exonerating the campaign.

Moreover, Justice Department Attorney General William Barr has since appointed Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham to conduct his own criminal probe of the Obama administration’s now debunked investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia. According to several sources Durham is expected to issue indictments against several FBI officials, along with naming other co-conspirators.

Stone was sentenced to three years and four months in prison. He was set to report to prison by Tuesday.

On Friday, Republican lawmakers lauded President Trump’s decision to pardon Stone. Ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said, “each week, Americans learn more about how the Obama-Biden Administration weaponized the intelligence community and Justice Department to target the Trump campaign.”

“Roger Stone’s prosecution by overzealous Special Counsel prosecutors was an outgrowth of the Obama-Biden misconduct. Like every president, President Trump has the constitutional right to commute sentences where he believes it serves the interest of fairness and justice. I support President Trump’s decision to commute Roger Stone’s sentence.”

Biden Administration Proposes Rule to Fortify Federal Bureaucracy Against Republican Presidency



Joe Biden

In a strategic move, the Biden administration has unveiled a proposed rule aimed at reinforcing the left-leaning federal bureaucracy, potentially hindering future conservative policy implementations by Republican presidents. This move has raised concerns about the efficacy of democratic elections when a deep-seated bureaucracy remains largely unchanged, regardless of electoral outcomes.

Key points of the situation include:

Presidential Appointees vs. Career Bureaucrats: Of the 2.2 million federal civil workers, only 4,000 are presidential appointees. The vast majority, made up of career bureaucrats, continue in their roles from one administration to the next. This continuity is facilitated by rules that make it exceedingly difficult to discipline or replace them, resulting in a bureaucracy that tends to lean left politically.

Union Political Affiliation: A striking 95% of unionized federal employees who donate to political candidates support Democrats, according to Open Secrets, with only 5% favoring Republicans. This significant political skew among federal workers raises questions about the potential for political bias in the execution of government policies.

Obstructionism and Challenges for GOP Presidents: Some career bureaucrats have been accused of obstructing Republican presidents’ agendas, leading to policy delays and challenges. For example, during the Trump administration, career lawyers in the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division declined to challenge Yale University’s discrimination against Asian American applicants, prompting Trump to seek legal counsel from other divisions. The case was subsequently dropped when Joe Biden took office.

Biden’s Countermeasures: President Biden has taken steps to protect the bureaucracy’s status quo. In October 2020, Trump issued an executive order aiming to reclassify federal workers who make policy as at-will employees, but Biden canceled it upon taking office.

Proposed Rule and Congressional Actions: The rule unveiled by the Biden administration seeks to further impede a president’s ability to reinstate Trump’s order. Additionally, some Democrats in Congress are pushing to eliminate the president’s authority to reclassify jobs entirely. This has been referred to as an attempt to “Trump-proof the federal workforce.”

Republican Candidates’ Pledge: GOP candidates such as President Donald J Trump, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Ron DeSantis have pledged to address this issue. According to reports from Fox News, Ramaswamy has gone further, advocating for the elimination of half or more of civil service positions, emphasizing the need for accountability.

Debate on the Merit of the Civil Service: While Democrats and their media allies argue that civil service protects merit over patronage, critics contend that the system has evolved into a form of job security for federal workers with minimal accountability. Federal employees often receive higher salaries and more substantial benefits than their private-sector counterparts.

In summary, the Biden administration’s proposed rule and broader actions to protect the federal bureaucracy have sparked a debate over the role of career bureaucrats in shaping government policy.

Republican candidates are vowing to address these concerns, highlighting the need for accountability and ensuring that government agencies work in alignment with the elected president’s agenda. This ongoing debate raises important questions about the relationship between the bureaucracy and the democratic process in the United States.
