Oregon Ranchers Pardoned By Trump Get Free Ride Home In Private Jet – You’ll Love Who Made It All Happen

Published

on

Now, this is a really cool gesture.

The day after President Trump pardoned the two Oregon ranchers who were at the center of a 40-day armed standoff against BLM during the Barack Hussein Obama administration, the pair got a chance to fly back home to Oregon on the private jet of an oil company founder who once donated $50,000 to Vice President Pence.

Dwight and Steven Hammond were convicted back in 2012 and sentenced to five long years in prison on what most consider bogus arson charges after the two allegedly set a series of fires on their ranch that by accident spread to federal land. The case sparked a 40-day armed standoff of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. A standoff to protest against the fact that the Federal Government is the largest landowner in the U.S.

Here is more on this via The Hill:

“One day after President Trump pardoned two Oregon ranchers who were at the center of a 40-day armed standoff, the pair flew home on the private jet of an oil company founder who once donated $50,000 to Vice President Pence.

The ranchers, Dwight and Steven Hammond, made the trip on Wednesday with Lucas Oil founder Forrest Lucas, according to a post on Protect the Harvest’s Facebook page, a nonprofit founded by Lucas.

The Hammonds were convicted in 2012 and sentenced to five years in prison on arson charges. The two had set a series of fires on their ranch that spread to federal land.
Their case prompted the 40-day armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016, in which protesters demonstrated against federal land ownership.

In its pardon, the White House said there were uncertainties in the Hammonds’ case.

“The evidence at trial regarding the Hammonds’ responsibility for the fire was conflicting, and the jury acquitted them on most of the charges,” the White House said.

The Times attributes the Hammonds’ private ride home with Lucas to an abundance of lobbying that took place to secure the ranchers’ pardon.

Lucas reportedly donated $50,000 to Pence and his wife while Pence was running for governor of Indiana. According to the Times, Lucas also gave Pence two tickets worth $774 to attend an Indianapolis Colts game in 2017.

Lucas, whose company also owns the naming rights to the Colts’ Lucas Oil Stadium, has lobbied extensively against animal-rights activists. The Times reported that Lucas used Protect the Harvest to lobby for the Hammonds’ release.

The paper also noted that Lucas had contacted Oregon’s congressional delegation in his effort to release the Hammonds, getting help from the state’s only Republican lawmaker, Greg Walden.

Just two weeks ago, Walden had gave a speech on the House floor calling for the Hammonds’ release.

Walden also wrote on Facebook on July 1 that Trump had called him to tell him he was “seriously considering” pardoning the Oregon ranchers.”

In the pardon, President Trump outlined the fact that there were uncertainties in the Hammond case which led to questions as to the Hammond’s responsibility in the case. A case which the jury actually acquitted them on most charges brought up by the federal government.

But on Wednesday they traveled free back to Oregon on the private jet of the Lucas Oil Company. Lucas reportedly donated $50,000 to Pence and his wife while Pence was running for governor of Indiana, and according to the Times, Lucas also gave Pence two tickets worth $774 to attend an Indianapolis Colts game in 2017. Lucas also owns the naming rights to the naming rights to the Colt’s Stadium and the company lobbied extensively for the Hammond Pardon.

Here is more on this case via Reuters:

“The 41-day standoff, which began after the ranchers were imprisoned for a second time for setting a fire that spread to public land, stirred the long-simmering dispute over federal land policies in the U.S. West. It turned deadly when police shot one of the occupiers.

A crowd of supporters cheered as Dwight Hammond, 76, and his son, Steven, 49, arrived at Burns Municipal Airport in southeastern Oregon. Local officials including a Republican congressman had urged Trump to pardon them.

U.S. Representative Greg Walden, who had sought the pardon, called their release “an acknowledgement of our unique way of life in the high desert, rural West” in a statement on Tuesday. He declined further comment Wednesday.

Harney County Sheriff David Ward, who also petitioned the government to pardon the Hammonds soon after Trump’s election, also welcomed the decision.

“There’s no way we can thank everybody enough,” Dwight Hammond told reporters at the airport as he stood alongside his wife, Susan.

The Hammonds were convicted in 2012. They said they were using standard land-management techniques, but federal prosecutors said that in at least one instance they were trying to hide evidence of their killing a herd of deer.

They were initially sentenced to less than the legal minimum five years in prison by a judge who called that minimum harsh. After prosecutors appealed, a different judge in 2015 ordered the men back to prison for the full five years, sparking protests and the occupation of the nearby Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

Dwight Hammond served about three years in prison and Steven served four, according to the White House. They were released from a federal prison in California on Tuesday after Trump’s pardon.”

So great to see these people finally free after the justice-less days of the Barack Hussein Obama Administration where patriots were attacked on a daily basis while statists were let to break any law they wanted without any repercussion whatsoever.

WHOA: Melania Had Enough, Immediately Calls For Her to Be FIRED!

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Sara Palin

In a rare move, First Lady Melania Trump has publically called for the firing of the president’s deputy national security adviser, Mira Ricardel.

In a statement, the first lady’s spokesperson Stephanie Grisham, said: “It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that she [Ricardel] no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House.”

Historically, it is unusual for the first lady to publicly call for the firing of an administration official, especially so since Melania Trump has played a quiet role within the administration herself.

ABC News reports the firing centers around a dispute between Melania Trump’s office and Ricardel regarding the solo trip to Africa that the first lady recently took:

Trump felt she had treated her staff disrespectfully, White House sources said, and Ricardel was seen as so difficult during the planning of the trip, according to sources, that the first lady’s team sought Kelly’s guidance.

The National Security Council did not respond to a request for comment.

BizPac Review has more on the African trip clash:

White House officials said Ricardel wanted to accompany Melania on her trip to Africa, but was denied seating on the First Lady’s airplane because there wasn’t enough room for her and her staff. As revenge, Ricardel reportedly threatened to not send any National Security staff along.

According to the ABC News report, their dispute has carried over into behind-the-scenes dealings involving other administration officials:

Ricardel was recruited to the National Security Council by the president’s national security adviser, John Bolton. According to the Wall Street Journal, the first lady’s office believed Ricardel was behind negative stories and was known to not get along with Secretary of Defense James Mattis and at times sought to undermine him from within the White House.

Fox News has even more:

Melania Trump traveled to Ghana, Mali, Kenya and Egypt last month. During the trip, she told ABC News that there are people in the White House whom she and the president cannot trust. She declined to name anyone but said she had let the president know who they are.

“Well,” she said, “some people, they don’t work there anymore.”

Asked if some untrustworthy people still worked in the White House, she replied, “Yes.”

The furor over Ricardel comes as Trump is considering changes to his Cabinet that could include the departures of Kelly, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, among others.

The deputy national security adviser may not be the only person Melania Trump has clashed with as the Washington Examiner reports she recently had a run-in with President Trump’s chief of staff John Kelly.

According to the report, Kelly and Melania Trump have clashed over travel and staffing issues which included Kelly denying promotions from members of Melania Trump’s office.

Some of the arguments have escalated to the president. The first lady brought up the issues with her husband earlier this year after Kelly repeatedly denied her requests to promote some of her staffers.

Kelly had said there were not enough available positions for East Wing staffers to have senior titles, but West Wing officials were given promotions during the same time, White House officials told NBC.

The president told Kelly to respect his wife’s wishes. “I don’t need this s**t,” President Trump told Kelly. The first lady’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, and White House social secretary, Rickie Niceta, were eventually promoted to deputy assistants to the president in June.

According to the report, Kelly’s decision to fire Melania Trump’s director of operations, Justin Caporale, and the president’s personal aide, John McEntee, were perceived by Melania Trump as “personal affronts.”

The Washington Examiner reports that Grisham also said that Melania Trump and Kelly share a “very positive relationship.”

“The East Wing is very focused on the First Lady’s initiatives and works independently. However, we do collaborate on a variety of projects and work alongside many departments within the west wing. We have a very positive working relationship,” Grisham said, via the report. “I would also add that Mrs. Trump has a very positive relationship with Chief Kelly and there have never been any issues between the two.”

Illegal Immigrant Who Entered The U.S. Via Obama-Era Program Now Accused Of Killing 3

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Sara Palin

As President Trump continues to undo the impact former President Obama made on the United States’ immigration system, it is being reported that an illegal immigrant welcomed to the country under an Obama-era program has now been accused of killing three people.

Immigration officials from the United State Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed that 23-year-old Luis Rodrigo Perez was permitted entry into the country as a result of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program.

Breitbart reports Perez had a lengthy run-in with the law while living in New Jersey before he was charged with the murder spree in Missouri:

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson told the Springfield News-Leader that Luis Rodrigo Perez, 23, a Mexican national accused of killing three people in Missouri after jail officials released him on domestic violence charges in New Jersey, was a recipient of the DACA program in 2012 and 2014.

It is unclear whether he was no longer eligible or did not re-apply for the program in 2016. Illegal aliens who came to the U.S. as children can qualify for DACA, but felony or significant misdemeanor convictions are grounds for disqualification from the program.

ICE spokesperson Shawn Neudauer said before Perez was accused of murder, he was arrested in Middlesex County in December 2017 on suspicion of aggravated assault, assault, and child abuse.

According to the report, Middlesex County operates under “sanctuary” policies and, before ICE was able to detain Perez, local officials released him. After his release, Perez reportedly went on to murder three people in a southwest Missouri home.

From the report:

Perez was convicted of violating a judicial order on January 29 and released from jail on February 2, Neudauer said.

ICE Acting Executive Associate Director Corey Price said Friday that federal immigration officials placed a detainer on Perez while in the New Jersey jail, but jail officials did not honor the request and did not let ICE know when he was released.

ICE has slammed Middlesex County in the past for their “sanctuary” policies, especially after the federal immigration agency arrested 37 criminal illegal aliens in the area in July.

When ICE officials conducted the five-day sweep of the area, they found 16 of the criminal illegal aliens they arrested had been released from the Middlesex County Jail.

And, via Associated Press:

A man who federal authorities believe is in the U.S. illegally has been charged in the fatal shooting of two former roommates and a woman whose home he moved into after his first victims threw him out, police in southwestern Missouri said. A second man has been charged as an accomplice.

Police said in charging documents that Luis Perez opened fire on Steven Marler, 38, and Aaron Hampton, 23, at their home in Springfield on Nov. 1. Two other people were wounded but survived. Perez then shot and killed Sabrina Starr, 21, a day later at her house, the documents say. The 23-year-old suspect faces eight other felony counts in the shootings.

Aaron Anderson, 19, told investigators that he was waiting with Starr in an SUV outside Hampton and Marler’s home when Perez shot them. Anderson said he was on the phone with Perez at the time and that he could hear the victims “begging for their lives.”
