President Donald Trump has commuted the prison sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, who was believed to have been in the wrong place at the wrong time during a cocaine bust that handed her a lifetime sentence, taking her away from a family that includes grandchildren. The move puts Trump on the forefront of criminal justice reform as he fights an establishment that oversees mass black incarceration and now even a private prison industry with a powerful Washington lobby.
But the liberal press is desperate to find fault with anything President Trump accomplishes — in this case demeaning Kim Kardashian West for bringing Johnson’s case to the president in the Oval Office.
Here is the Chicago Tribune’s completely biased, dismissive take on President Donald Trump’s historic move: “Trump commuted the sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, two White House officials said. The 63-year old spent more than two decades behind bars and is not eligible for parole. The move comes amid a recent flurry of pardons issued by Trump, who has seemed drawn to causes advocated by conservatives, celebrities or those who once appeared on his former reality show, “The Apprentice.”…Johnson was convicted in 1996 on eight criminal counts related to a Memphis-based cocaine trafficking operation involving more than a dozen people. The 1994 indictment describes dozens of deliveries and drug transactions, many involving Johnson.”
The mainstream media just can’t stand when President Trump has humanitarian successes.
The mainstream media mocks Trump for meeting with celebrity Kardashian West, while fawning over George Clooney and accused sex offender Harvey Weinstein’s well-documented closeness to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
In fact, conservatives are leading the movement to pardon the man who was recently let out of prison after serving time for drug offenses, only to be scheduled for re-imprisonment under new federal guidelines. President Trump clearly disagrees with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on the many moves Sessions has made in this area — the two now have a publicly hostile relationship.
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.

TRUST THE MAN: Here’s A Growing Map of Deep State Conspirators Who Have Been Fired
President Donald Trump continues to solidify the American people’s position in the federal government.
Former FBI director James Comey is reeling from the FBI’s release of information pertaining to his exit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The forms reveal a mad dash by the Department of Justice in the days after Comey’s spring 2017 firing to retrieve secret information from Comey’s office and to figure out the extent of what Comey was actually doing as FBI director.
Comey signed the Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement, which makes it all the more serious that Comey violated sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 13 by illegally handing over presidential briefing memorandums (page 5 and 6 of FBI release).

Comey is not alone in his government unemployment.
An interactive mapping project has sprung up on mindmeister to track Deep State conspirator cells that have been fired in the age of President Donald Trump.
