Ex-convict commuted by Obama arrested on drug charge

 

A 68-year-old San Antonio man whose life prison sentence was commuted by President Barack Obama is back in jail after authorities say he crashed his car into another vehicle while fleeing from officers following a drug deal.
    
A federal magistrate judge on Friday ordered Robert Gill held without bail pending a hearing later this month.

 

*************************************************************************

Another Obama inmate release has been busted. It's not the first, and it won't be the last.

 

 

Well if they want to blow the chance at rehabilitation, so be it.

 

Quote...

Obama wrote in a signed notification that he granted Gill’s application “because you have demonstrated the potential to turn your life around. … Now it is up to you to make the most of this opportunity.”

 

 

Guess not.

actually, I think obama has a perfect right to enrich himself. when he first ran one of the first things I heard from the msm about him was that he coulda made a fortune for himself as a lawyer but selflessly decided to community organize.

 

of course!

 

he knew that politics would lead to the same result.

 

Everyone has the right to prosperity, Obama, Trump and the rest of us.  It's those who's goal is to destroy it.  Even though I disagree with Obama on some policies, I do wish him a long, healthy, prosperous life. His wife Michelle seems to be doing better, net worth estimated around 11.8 million while Obama is worth 7 million.  He's 438% richer before he ran for office.

 

Trump said he won't accept the presidential salary, only want's a dollar.

Mr. Podesta, who lives two doors from the house the Obamas will rent, invites neighbors for pizza parties in his backyard, where he has a pizza oven. Several times a day, a line of parked taxis snakes down the street, their occupants drawn to the Islamic Center on the block for Muslim prayers.

 

Dum da dum dum. A conspiracy double dip.

certainly not non-ritzy environs, are they?

if Gill had killed anybody...than barack obama would have been responsible as well as morally culpable.

 

the left wants to believe you can unleash dangerous criminals in a vacuum.

 

at least a child has the excuse of ignorance.

 

silly sesame street wishful thinking cannot omit reality no matter how much the amoral liberal wishes it could.

After Trump attack, Lockheed Martin slashes F-35 cost

Defense giant Lockheed Martin has agreed to sell 90 new F-35 fighter jets to the US Defense Department for $8.5 billion -- a deal that amounts to more than $700 million in savings over the last batch of aircraft delivered.

 

Lockheed Martin credited President Donald Trump for helping to "accelerate negotiations" and "drive down the price" of what is already the most expensive weapons program in history.
 
The cost of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program found itself in Trump's crosshairs on several occasions in recent weeks and Trump called for a review of whether a modified version of the older F/A-18 aircraft could replace the Navy's costly F-35 variant.
 
****************************************************************
If Obama was still President we would have paid a trillion dollars more, and he would have gone golfing to celebrate. This is why Trump was elected, he knows how to handle finances.

 

 

The military industrial complex is a cost over run monster on steroids. :angry:

I guess that's the comforting thing about clinging to one's partisan vision. Obama attackers never let facts get in the way of their hatred.

 

Truly.

 

With all the actual, factual evidence at hand for Obama's really poor Presidency, it's laughable that the dumb and lazy go with "golfing" to make the point, isn't it.


I may live badly but at least I don't have to work to do it.

Obama's final tally: 333 rounds of golf as POTUS

 

Alternate facts queen Kellyanne Conway now refers to the "Bowling Green Massacre" as justification for Trump's travel ban of Muslims. To be fair, perhaps it isn't fair to blame Kellyanne for this fictional massacre statement. Maybe she's still dizzy from getting wacked in the head by one of Obama's golf balls.

MM is a wingnut supreme, living in his own separate fact free

reality. That's why he has been harping on Obama's golf

outings for the last few years, despite the fact that they're

irrelevant to anything else. Crazy as a bedbug.

 

I just happened to read a short article on golfing presidents.

Most do. In the last 120 years, there were only four POTUS

who didn't hit the little white ball around. Obama is the only

president who plays left-handed, and compared to Ike, Obama

is an amateur--Eisenhower played about 800 rounds of golf

in his eight years in office. This was a surprise to me--the

golfiest POTUS in history was....Woodrow Wilson. He played

about 1,200 rounds and was such a fanatic he painted his

golf ball black so he could play in the snow. Maybe he should

have had Eighteen Points.

Obama wasted 333 days playing golf, and wonders why he never got anything done, why the economy kept getting worse. He was as bad at being a President as he was a golfer.

 

 

I guess that's the comforting thing about clinging to one's partisan vision. Obama attackers never let facts get in the way of their hatred.

 

Trump has got a far healthier economy in which to create jobs than the one Obama had inherited in 2008. Think an Obama hater will give him any credit for that? Nah, not a chance.

Obama's final tally: 333 rounds of golf as POTUS

Barack Obama exited the White House Friday, and thus ended his two terms in office.

The 44th president often spent his leisure and vacation time on the golf course, especially during his second term in office.

According to CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller, Obama played 333 rounds as president. Obama's last round came on December 31 while on vacation in Hawaii. Knoller tweeted it was Obama's 46th round of his final year in office.

Obama sued businesses, stalled construction projects, shut down oil drilling, catered to the Castro brothers, and ruined the economy. That is why the stock market has taken off since Trump was elected. They finally have someone who knows what an economy is for.

 

Why did the stock market nearly triple while Obama was President?

 

PS:  One major reason for the rise in the Market in the last 4 or so months is because of the increase in the Treasury interest rate.    This caused billions to be moved from Bonds into the Market.
