When Matthew Charles was released from Prison after twenty-one years, he did what many find trouble doing, he turned his life around. He found himself a steady job and a girlfriend, he began volunteering on the weekends. To every account, he was a model citizen.
But to a federal appeals court, his two years out of prison were a mistake. You see, Charles was originally sentenced to 35 years in prison, but his sentenced was reduced, resulting in him being released in 2016 after 21 years in prison.
Despite him spending two years as a model citizen, the federal appears court felt that a mistake was made, and that Charles should never have been released in the first place. This was done because he was originally classified as a “career offender,” making reduced sentences impossible.
Charles was originally charged with selling crack to an undercover police officer, and has acknowledged his mistakes, admitting that he was not a model citizen at the time of his arrest. But during his two years being released, he stayed out of trouble, and proven he’s a changed man.
Despite his proven change, he’s back in prison, and many people are furious. Specifically, people on the right have come in heavily in support of Charles. Dozens of high-profile individuals on the right have come out in support of Charles, asking President Trump to commute his sentence.
Here’s just a sampling of those calling for President Trump to grant Michael Charles a full pardon:
This story broke my heart. It is my deepest hope that @realDonaldTrump will consider a pardon for this man. Trump has made great strides already in the area of prison reform and this story is worthy of his attention.

Is it fair? Full interview on our #DailyBriefing @facebook page: A man sentenced to 35 years for selling drugs got his term reduced. He was released & started living a responsible life. Then he was ordered back to prison. https://t.co/xBulf0vb4k #PrisonReform pic.twitter.com/jm6GxmUk58

A man goes to prison. For more than 20 years he is a model prisoner. He finds God, he reforms. He is released. But the state must not be questioned, and it claims he owes more. A free people will only tolerate such capricious injustice for so long. https://t.co/A4o7TFjNQW

Our criminal justice system shouldn’t be like this. Our government is destroying lives. I’ll continue to push for reforms, and I hope others in Congress will join me. @POTUS, please consider commutation for Matthew Charles and others in similar circumstances. https://t.co/Iao3QdhXeh

I join a large chorus of others asking @POTUS to #FreeMatthewCharles. This is a travesty in our criminal justice system. POTUS needs to pardon and then Congress needs to clean up the law that allowed this in the first place. https://t.co/HXWJJU7l3t

This is everything that’s wrong with our broken criminal justice system. Matthew Charles is rehabilitated. He’s paid his debt and created a new life. Our system has failed thousands, let’s not fail Mr. Charles. @realDonaldTrump should commute his sentence. https://t.co/XyMpoEIznp

Along with an outpouring of support on Twitter, a petition asking for President Trump to commute his prison sentence has been started at change.org.
With such vocal support from those on the right, there is a good chance that President Donald Trump will choose to pardon Matthew Charles. After all, it was pressure from friends of his that led towards the post-human pardon of heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson.
President Trump Announces New 1776 Commission to Promote Patriotic Education in Nation’s Schools
An alternative to leftist brainwashing.
President Donald Trump announced the formation of a new ‘1776 Commission’ during a speech at the National Archives Museum on Thursday, creating a new commission that will work to instill principles of patriotic and pro-American education in defiance to left-wing school and university systems.
The President spoke of the need for the new commission in light of the vision championed by the cultural left, citing the New York Times’ 1619 Project and ‘critical race theory’ anti-white teachings pervasive throughout Fortune 500 companies and federal government agencies. (The President issued an executive order banning critical race theory brainwashing at the beginning of the month.)
The 1776 Commission will work to promote patriotic education and defend American heritage and character. It’s likely the organization will create curriculum that celebrates the American legacy, as leftists in public school and university systems work relentlessly to attack it.
“Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character,” Trump said of the Commission’s goals. “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.”
“These radicals have been aided and abetted by liberal politicians, establishment media, and even large corporations,” Trump said. “Whether it is the mob in the street or the cancel culture in the boardroom, the goal is the same: To silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life.”
“We are here today to declare that we will never submit to tyranny. We will reclaim our history and our country for citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed,” the president continued.
The President understands that conservatives and patriots must fight for cultural power as they do for political power, an pressing priority for conservatives who desire to fight back against the cultural left’s domination of the educational world.
