No, I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion is only a motion away
from the song “Mother and Child Reunion” by Paul Simon
I often wonder, as I read court documents, whether the mother and child reunion many of us long to see happen for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is only a motion away. The motions, so far, don’t seem to be doing much to move the needle.
As the days pass and Dzhokhar waits, the defense continues to report they still need a full record of the trial. The prosecution refuses to give it to them for reasons they won’t divulge and so far, no one is showing signs of making them.
When motions get stuck “going through the motions” maybe it’s time for a change. Maybe it’s time for the court to stop extending deadlines and put its proverbial foot down.
Or maybe it’s time for someone to approach this from another angle.
Amnesty: The act of releasing or protecting a person or persons from prosecution for wrongdoings. A pardon for past criminal offenses for a class or group of individuals who are subject to trial but have not yet been convicted.
Article II, Section 2 of the U. S. Constitution gives the President the power to “grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States.”
And for those of you who need a reminder: Donald Trump is the President who has that power.
May 6, 2017 was Exotic Pet Amnesty Day here in Florida. Persons could surrender any exotic animal, free of charge, with no questions asked about the surrendered animal – even if the person did not have a license to own the animal.
People turned in a lot of snakes that day. Maybe it’s time amnesty be given to snakes of the two-legged kind.
I’m not about to suggest that President Trump should pardon Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Far from it.
After all, you can’t pardon an innocent man.
But he could pardon those who have falsely testified against him. I refer, without apology, to the alleged victims who, evidence proves quite conclusively, were nothing more than prior-amputee crisis actors.
Signing a non-disclosure agreement gave them neither the right, the obligation or the responsibility to commit a crime. It’s common sense. But more than that, it’s “Right and Wrong 101.”
I remember what this country was like before September 11 and I want it back again.
We now have the most innovative President in decades, if we will accept him and let him do what he does best. Bold action and creative problem-solving are his forte. I can easily see him deciding, by constitutionally-protected executive order, to grant amnesty to any “victims” who wish to come forward, admit they were indeed a prior-amputee crisis actor, and put this whole Boston Marathon mess behind them.
All it would take is one and the whole trial, the whole sham of a bombing would fall like a house of cards. And think of the millions of dollars this President would save avoiding a new trial, ending Dzhokhar’s incarceration.
And sorry, but those millions Dzhokhar was to pay in restitution to the “victims” – gone, done, wiped out.
Talk about making America great again… the President who freed Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, solved the Boston Marathon bombing mystery, saved the country millions, proved he is not an Islamophobe and quite likely put an end to these false flag terror attacks – at least in this country, by the stroke of a pen.
Much as I would like to see Dzhokhar Tsarnaev receive real justice by watching all those who helped convict him with their false testimony reap what they have sown, I would settle for amnesty for the crisis actors so they could safely confess to being crisis actors as I now see this as the fastest, most direct and yes, cost-effective route to Dzhokhar’s freedom.
Maybe this unorthodox, unapologetic President, who happens to be my President, is just the one to make this first-ever-amnesty-day-for-crisis-actors-caught-up-in-a-false-flag happen. Let’s hope they have grown tired of living with handlers and lies. Let’s hope they are longing for a way to get out from under the specter of possible prosecution. Let’s hope all that money and attention no longer satisfies.
Let’s hope and keep hoping, because hope will lead to faith, if we let it and with faith in God, all things are possible.
