Trump Pardons Former Media Mogul Conrad Black

President Donald Trump has issued a full pardon for Conrad Black, a former media mogul who was convicted on counts of wire fraud and obstruction of justice and who also wrote a biography that praised the president last year.

According to a lengthy post on Black’s website, Trump called Black and told him personally of the pardon. Evidently after checking with White House counsel, Trump told Black that he was granting the pardon to reverse an injust verdict.

The Washington Post reported that the White House said in a statement that Black was “entirely deserving” of the pardon.

Black was convicted in 2007 on three counts of fraud and one count of obstruction of justice, though two of the fraud charges were later dropped on appeal. He was initially sentenced to six and a half years in prison, but that was reduced to 42 months after the other fraud charges were overturned. He was also required to pay a fine of $125,000, as well as paying the SEC $4.1 million.

The charges stemmed from Black embezzling funds during the sale of some of his company Hollinger International’s publishing assets. Hollinger International was one of the biggest newspaper publishers in the world, and included such publications as the Chicago Sun-Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Jerusalem Post and the National Post (Canada).

Black, who was born Canadian — though he holds British citizenship and is a British peer — was deported to Canada after being released in 2012. He was barred from returning to the United States for 30 years.

  1. He obviously doesn’t believe in something called obstruction of justice, but he does believe in those with praise. This vile criminal is a very dangerous obscenity.

    Above and beyond the incorporation of “Medical Jurisprudence/ Legal Medicine” within courtrooms in America, every Justice within America should be LEGALLY MANDATED to have a Medical prequalification in Neuropsychiatry, Neuropsychology or Behavioral Neurology (and in addition to the practice of law– and specifically, Constitutional Law), before being considered as a “bench prospect” for a U.S. courtroom!

    Now that the problem of Hillary Clinton’s emails would appear to have been resolved (and– so said!– the “sexual habits” of Bill Clinton!), what we are now left with are a collection of Net Media Reports which reveal amassed court evidence concerning the complicit involvement of Mr. Donald Trump (a.k.a., MR. PHEWTUS!) in C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!… and, as indicated in the material (ILLEGAL, TORTIOUS, or SERENDIPITOUS!) at…
    .
    h-t-t-p-s://bit(dot)ly/29cOQpO
    .
    and, h-t-t-p-s://bit(dot)ly/2eb4As5… and, h-t-t-p-s://bit(dot)ly/30mfGC6… and lastly, h-t-t-p-s://ind(dot)pn/2doyD0w
    .
    Simply put, the abovednoted URLs should have compelled a THOROUGH INVESTIGATION way back when by the FBI into these C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E allegations (and, regardless of the withdrawal of the allegation of R-A-P-E/ A-B-U-S-E by the alleged victim, on November 4th, 2016!… due to expressed fears for her life– said her counsel!)!… let alone, an FBI investigation into the hacking of the DNC by Russians (so said, by “Conservative interests”)! And which should compel– as well… and, if necessary!… T-H-E A-R-R-E-S-T O-F D-O-N-A-L-D T-R-U-M-P!
    .
    Either this “alleged” victim is held to account for propagating “FAKE NEWS (Y-E-A, C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L M-I-S-C-H-I-E-F!… A-T L-E-A-S-T!)” by way of her testimony (and a testimony, incidentally, attested to by other alleged witnesses!), O-R T-R-U-M-P S-H-O-U-L-D B-E H-E-L-D T-O A-C-C-O-U-N-T B-E-F-O-R-E A C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L C-O-U-R-T O-F L-A-W! There can be N-O M-O-R-A-T-O-R-I-U-M regarding an allegation of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!… and, which has been made manifest re other C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E-/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E allegations! And!… if an American State would contend that there is such a MORATORIUM, then there is a clear case for a Constitutional Challenge re DUE PROCESS, under the 5th Amendment, and a case of a denial of EQUAL PROTECTION under the 14th Amendment, regarding States that/ which don’t have such a MORATORIUM! In other words, Trump can’t hide behind a State’s claim that a State-legislated MORATORIUM holds sway over DUE PROCESS, and EQUAL PROTECTION! But also!… no one making such a claim (and, given the significance of same!) should be held blameless if such a claim is PROVEN to be false!… and so, N-E-C-E-S-S-I-T-A-T-I-N-G I-M-M-E-D-I-T-E F-B-I I-N-V-O-L-V-E-M-E-N-T (A-T L-E-A-S-T!), and a court’s determination of the facts– of guilt, or innocence! AND DITTO!… RE ANY ALLEGATIONS MADE ELSEWHERE, PERTAINING TO ANY OTHER NOTABLE POLITICAL FIGURE!
    .
    Furthermore, we may very well learn– given the PROVEN VERACITY of the allegations of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!– that the T-R-U-E R-E-A-S-O-N that this “character” became involved in the 2016 U.S. Federal Election race, was to H-I-D-E from these allegations within the “smoke screen” of a Federal Presidential Election campaign (AND THROUGH THE ASSISTANCE OF– HOW SHALL I PHRASE IT?– “LIKE-MINDED” “OFF-SHORE INTERESTS”!… AND– QUITE CONCEIVABLY!– “LIKE-MINDED” “ELECTORAL COLLEGE INTERESTS”!… SEE, PROVERBS 28:1!)!… and!… I-N T-H-E G-U-I-S-E O-F S-E-R-V-I-N-G H-I-S C-O-U-N-T-R-Y! And!… is it beyond our imagining that “certain interests” which deal in INTERNATIONAL CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING* (and even if only for, “perverse personal pleasures”!… for a price!), would want to continue with such “dealings” U-N-E-N-C-U-M-B-E-R-E-D? And, to be honest!… I wouldn’t put it past this “POTUS HUCKSTER” and “HUSTLER” to have “played” the RNC, his “alleged” R-A-P-E V-I-C-T-I-M, her family, and America, in order to escape the “handcuffs of justice”!… i.e., in the light of what we’ve come to learn about his P-R-O-V-E-N “MISOGYNIST HUBRIS (to put it mildly!)”! In other words, such “dysic behavior” by Trump, I-S N-O-T, “O-U-T O-F T-H-E B-L-U-E”!… see, h-t-t-p-s://bit(dot)ly/307Uekb
    .
    Simply said, if what is alleged of Donald Trump is V-A-L-I-D, then this “Potus Elect”, S-H-O-U-L-D N-O-T H-O-L-D O-F-F-I-C-E! I-N-D-E-E-D, N-O P-R-E-S-I-D-E-N-T-I-A-L W-A-N-N-A_B-E U-N-D-E-R S-U-C-H A C-L-O-U-D, S-H-O-U-L-D B-E E-N-T-I-T-L-E-D T-O B-E I-N T-H-E W-H-I-T-E H-O-U-S-E! AND DONALD TRUMP SHOULD HAVE BEEN– AND, SHOULD BE NOW!– C-O-M-P-E-L-L-E-D T-O S-T-E-P D-O-W-N, U-N-T-I-L A-L-L C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ A-B-U-S-E A-L-L-E-G-A-T-I-O-N-S A-R-E Q-U-A-S-H-E-D! Unless!… and of course!… the Reports that Huffington Post (AND BY SEVERAL OTHERS!) have been publicizing, are all “FAKE NEWS”! The creation of “ghost writers”!… and!… are but further examples of “NETTROLLICIDE”! And, the which, then… in that event!… should be held L-I-B-E-L-O-U-S (and, regardless of any initiative by Donald Trump!… and, regardless of whomever proffered such “FAKE NEWS”!)! Or!… S-U-C-H B-E A-C-T-E-D U-P-O-N! In other words, the FBI– at least!– should be addressing such “FAKE NEWS”!… OR ACTING UPON LEGIT NEWS ACCOUNTS THAT HAVE REPORTED ACCURATE CLAIMS INVOLVING DONALD TRUMP IN ACTS OF C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E! AND DITTO!… AND ONCE AGAIN!… RE ANY ALLEGATIONS MADE ELSEWHERE, PERTAINING TO ANY OTHER NOTABLE POLITICAL FIGURE!
    .
    NOTE: IN A FAILURE BY THE FBI TO HOLD DONALD TRUMP (A.K.A., MR. PHEWTUS!) TO ACCOUNT, ONE MUST BE H-I-G-H-L-Y S-U-S-P-I-C-I-O-U-S– Y-E-A, D-I-S-T-R-U-S-T-F-U-L!– OF A-N-Y “INTELLIGENCE AGENCY” THAT WOULD DIRECTLY, AND/ OR INDIRECTLY UNDERESTIMATE THE S-E-R-I-O-U-S T-H-R-E-A-T THAT SUCH BEHAVIOR POSES TO AMERICA’S CHILDREN, AND TO AMERICA’S FAMILIES!… LET ALONE, TO TRUMP’S ALLEGED VICTIM! AND, ANY SUCH FAILURE ON THE PART OF THE FBI TO GO AFTER DONALD TRUMP, SHOULD COMPEL THE QUESTIONS: A) IS THE FBI OF ANY FURTHER USEFULNESS TO AMERICANS?; AND B), WHO ARE THE INSTIGATING AUTHORS BEHIND THESE R-A-P-E REPORTS?… AND, IS THERE A-N-Y V-E-R-A-C-I-T-Y TO THESE REPORTS? AND RE THE LATTER QUESTION, ANY SUBSTANTIVE PROOFS FROM MEDIA REPORTS THAT WOULD SUPPORT THE GUILT OF DONALD TRUMP, WOULD SUBJECT THE VERY F-B-I (BUT, ETC.!) TO “JUSTIFIABLE LEGAL CROSS-EXAMINATION”, R-E T-H-E F-B-I-‘-S C-O-M-P-L-I-C-I-T-Y I-N F-E-L-O-N-I-O-U-S C-R-I-M-E-S!… E.G., IN THEIR GREEN-LIGHTING OF PHEWTUS’ 2016 U.S. FEDERAL ELECTION RUN, FOREKNOWING (AND WHO SHOULD HAVE FOREKNOWN!) PHEWTUS’ COMPLICITY IN THE ALLEGATIONS BROUGHT FORWARD (I.E., AND IN THAT EVENT, IF THERE BE– INDEED!– ANY “U-N-T-R-A-M-M-E-L-E-D, A-N-D U-N-T-A-I-N-T-E-D” U.S. JUDICIOUS JUDICIAL JUDICARE, AND BRAVE AND IMPARTIAL”INTELLIGENCE AGENCY”/ POLICING AUTHORITY LEFT STANDING IN AMERICA, THAT WOULD BE ABLE TO ADDRESS SUCH FELONIOUS CONDUCT BY WAY OF A FEDERAL INVESTIGATIVE BODY, SUCH AS THE FBI!)!
    .
    The dilemma for any CONSCIONABLE American Investigative Agency desiring to hold Donald Trump to Criminal Account (to start!), however, is weighing the implications of arresting “MR. POTUS (a.k.a., MR. PHEWTUS!)” in full Public view! Their difficulty is knowing precisely when and how to effect a PUBLIC ARREST!… and then, afterupon having done so, determining how best to safeguard innocent citizens from Trump’s very W-A-R-P-E-D F-O-L-L-O-W-E-R-S! And the FBI DAREN’T pursue– at least, just yet– whether there was a PAYOUT to the victim by Trump, for fear of inadvertently igniting civil unrest by hoards of T-R-U-M-P-I-A-N S-O-C-I-O-P-S-Y-C-H-O-P-A-T-H-S (e.g., like the White Supremacists of Charlottesville!… BUT, ETC.!)!
    .
    Nevertheless!… and if the FBI can create a “window of opportunity” to effect an efficient and effective arrest, then the FBI should proceed to, DEFEND THE INTERESTS OF AMERICA! But, if the FBI considers the Reports covered by the Huffington Post (among several others!) as “FAKE NEWS”, THEN THE FBI SHOULD DO ITS JOB, AND SHUT DOWN THIS BREACH OF THE U.S. FEDERAL STALKING STATUTE** (AND THUSLY, THE BREACH OF THE CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED SECURITY OF THE PERSON OF DONALD TRUMP/ MR. PHEWTUS!)!… AND, HOLD TO ACCOUNT THE “INSTIGATING/ INITIATING AUTHORS” OF THIS “FAKE NEWS (VICTIM!… OR, OTHERWISE!)”!
    .
    But!… if the Media Reports (OF WHATEVER LEGITIMATE STRIPE!) alleging Donald Trump’s involvement in C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E can’t be challenged (i.e., because, THESE REPORTS ARE “V-A-L-I-D N-E-W-S”!)!… and the “victim” is “legally encouraged” to follow-through with her civic duty to finalize her EARNEST INVOCATION (by mandating Federal police protection for her!… AND!… BY REMINDING THE FBI AND THE ALLEGED VICTIM OF THE CRIMINAL AND TORTIOUS NATURE OF COMMUNICATING F-A-L-S-E T-E-S-T-I-M-O-N-Y BEFORE A COURT OF LAW; AND THUSLY, AND LIKEWISE, OF THE “CIVIL OBLIGATION” TO COMPLETE A LEGAL PROCESS THAT WAS BASED UPON THAT TESTIMONY!)… then, the FBI is D-U-T-Y B-O-U-N-D to effect the needed Criminal Investigation of Donald Trump, and any concomitant subsequent C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L A-R-R-E-S-T!
    .
    Freedom of the Press is one thing… but, Freedom to create “HAVOC (to breach the law!)” through “FAKE NEWS”, is quite another! And it’s this HAVOC!… this attempted NETTROLLICIDE (if proven to be so!)!… that the FBI– apparently, and supposedly!– is NOW preoccupied with (i.e., among other concerns!), and is attempting to stop! Though… and despite the expressed V-E-R-A-C-I-T-Y of the evidence pertaining to MR. PHEWTUS reported by the alleged victim, and the Huffington Post (but, etc.!)!… the NECESSARY FBI INVESTIGATION concerning the allegations involving MR. PHEWTUS, have yet to be given as much SERIOUS FBI CONSIDERATION, as the reports of “FAKE NEWS (ummm!)”!

    In addition to Trump failing to sue CNN back in 2017, for CNN’s refusal to air Trump’s “PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT (the which, Trump would surely LOSE, as he could be easily shown to be promoting a violation of the CONSTITUTIONALLY SANCTIONED Security of the Person of Americans!)”, Trump has also failed to legally challenge the abovenoted alleged victim… who– again!– has alleged that MR. PHEWTUS is GUILTY of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!… and, he’s also failed to sue the “FAUX NEWSERS”, which have “falsely reported” the said C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E tale! And thus, how can one– of G-O-O-D C-O-N-S-C-I-E-N-C-E!– trust a wannabe Prez who screams “FAUX NEWS”, “FAUX NEWS”, “FAUX NEWS”!… and, who’d sue his neighbor’s housecat if given the chance!… but, would clam up tighter than a Contestant’s crotch on a segment of his The Apprentice, when challenged on his failure to go after the I-L-L-E-G-A-L-I-T-Y O-F A C-L-A-I-M O-F C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!

    .
    Christgopher A. Wray, will you uphold your D-U-T-Y to protect America’s children, and their families? Otherwise, it’s very hard to rationalize why the FBI would leave the alleged victim and her family “HIGH AND DRY (e.g., she withdrew her allegation on November 4th, 2016, due to said fears for her life!… stated her counsel!)”!… and conversely, it is equally very hard to rationalize why the FBI would leave America’s children and families HIGH AND DRY (e.g., the FBI would fail to go after this FAUX VICTIM for C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L-L-Y A-N-D T-O-R-T-I-O-U-S-L-Y giving false testimony re an allegation of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E on the one hand, and would fail to go after FAUX NEWESERS for reporting C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E on the other)! And how does that absence of FBI D-U-T-Y even make sense? And why would we believe– should we believe!– that the FBI is SO incompetent, that it would either fail to protect a victim of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E (F-O-R W-H-I-C-H, T-H-E-R-E C-A-N B-E N-O M-O-R-A-T-O-R-I-U-M!)!… or fail to go after A FAUX VICTIM who has alleged such a crime, and fail to go after FAUX NEWSERS which have reported it! A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E! And in Huffington Post’s report of Trump’s C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E charges, a COURT JUDGE believed that there was SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE to ratify the sending of the matter to another court for Adjudication by late December, 2016! And so and thus, and to cut to the chase… Christogopher, A. Wray of sunshine!… if the said victim was P-A-I-D O-F-F (I.E., I-F H-U-S-H M-O-N-E-Y W-A-S O-F-F-E-R-E-D U-P, A-N-D R-E-C-E-I-V-E-D!), then both the once alleged victim, AND Donald Trump, should be C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L-L-Y C-H-A-R-G-E-D (the once alleged victim for R-E-C-E-I-V-I-N-G A B-R-I-B-E!… and Trump for O-F-F-E-R-I-N-G A B-R-I-B-E, and for C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!)!
    .
    And let us not forget!… Christgopher, A. Wray of sunshine!… that MR. PHEWTUS (if, former NY Mayor Rudolph William Louis Giuliani is to be believed!) is alleged to have paid off a porn star with whom he did “business”!
    .
    Lastly, Christgopher, will you be holding MR. PHEWTUS accountable for releasing Classified Information to the Russians when the Russians paid a visit to the Off-White House in early 2017? And, Christgopher, will you be seeking to ensure that the 750 Russian bureaucrats who were “let go”/ fired by Putin (and, who could have provided HARD EVIDENCE re “TRUMPUTIN COLLUSION” during the 2016 U.S. Federal Election!)… and, through your Global Security contacts!… ensure the health and safety of those who are now Putin’s VULNERABLE TARGETS?
