Joseph Connor, whose father was murdered by FALN terrorists, will be the guest of Al Rantel this morning during the 11am hour on the West Coast.
In the hopes of squeezing out some more votes for his evil wife from Puerto Ricans in New York, Bill Clinton pardoned FALN terrorists and set them free.
How dare either of the Clintons say one word about the communtation of the sentence of Scooter Libby. Their shamelessness, arrogance, and hubris knows no limits. And, of course, the press uttered very few words about it.
Although they have published from him in the past, the NY POST did not post this new one:
When I read of President Bush’s commutation of Scooter Libby’s prison sentence I was relieved, thinking, “surely the Clinton family can’t possibly comment on this.”
The relief came because every time the need arises to remind Americans of the Clinton family’s unfathomable 1999 pardons of the 16 unrepentant FALN terrorists who proudly claimed responsibility for 130 bombings in the US including the murder of my 33 year old father Frank Connor at the lunch time bombing of Fraunces Tavern on January 24, 1975, my family and I are dragged back into the pain of his murder and the disgraceful, disrespectful and downright dangerous pardons of these proud terrorists.
So, given the Clintons’ abysmal record on pardons and terrorism, they would certainly have to sit this one out and as a result, thankfully, so would I.
Then a funny thing happened. Hill and Billy (Hillbilly) incredibly spoke out against the commutation, criticizing the President for, among other things, ideology and cronyism! It was stunning. Those who unleashed terrorists (who had not even requested clemency) in exchange for promised Latino votes from political cronies to Mrs. Clinton for her 2000 senate run were criticizing a commutation! Not a commutation of hardened terrorists or even an unprecedented swindler!
I thought, “How dumb do they think we are? or are they counting on another form of “Clinton fatigue” to kick in?”
Some political and media figures most noticeably, Dick Morris, challenged the Clintons with the FALN pardons. Others predictably raised the Marc Rich pardon. (Let’s face it, after pardoning terrorists, for the Clintons the Rich pardon was child’s play.) But for the most part the media and politicians have allowed the Clintons hypocritical criticism to go mainly unchallenged as it relates to their pardoning of terror.
Given the pain my father’s murder and the pathetic pardons raise and the energy they drain in writing about them again, I almost gave in to this new form of Clinton fatigue and kept quiet myself; focusing as most of us do, on the daily challenges of life, kids, work, bills...
Then I realized that the Clintons don’t feel this fatigue. They trade in it. They live on it. They count on others to tire, to forget or to go away, leaving their words and actions unchallenged.
On behalf of the life of Frank Connor and all of us who have been thought the fools by the Clintons, let’s get over this fatigue or we will be sentenced to 8 more years of it and there will be no pardon for us.
Joseph F. Connor
You could put it that way:
zero is "few."
Give ‘em hell, Joe.
The Marc Rich pardon was unbelievable. But this one was worse.
Very informative so far.
Fuel up the Swift Boats!
Clinton encouraged terrorists around the world by pardoning the FALN terrorists. He and his rotten wife have the blood of the victims of the FALN and the victims of 9/11 on their hands. It’s incredible that so many of the American people want to put the Clintons back in the White House so they can stupidly repeat their past mistakes.
