This must disgust you: Clint Lorance denied clemency while disgraced sexual deviant general cuts plea deal

Every day I wonder what’s happening in our America. Here’s another example. I received an email from Don J. Snyder regarding the plight of Army 1LT Clint Lorance – about whom we’ve written here often.

Here is what Mr. Snyder sent me:

“Col. West, we lost our clemency appeal. I was able to notify Anna (Clint’s mother) as she was about to visit Clint. So she told him. Essentially the Army stood on the investigation and court-martial. I am now turning all our attention to trying to persuade President Obama to grant Clint Lorance a presidential pardon. See the website here for the petition. Will you help us get the 100,000 signatures we need in the next month? I wonder if there would be some way to reach Veterans’ organizations for help? Thank you very much. Don”

We need 100,000 signatures by February 1, so please sign the petition here.

Of course I will help out, but here is what disturbs me. We are releasing Islamic terrorists from GITMO and yet we are holding a young American officer in prison for killing the enemy. And what is frightening and frankly disturbing, the Army withheld evidence in the court-martial of 1LT Lorance because the Army definitively knew about the terrorist actions of several of the Afghans involved. This is no different from the withholding of exculpatory evidence in the case of 1LT Michael Behenna — whom the Army finally released from prison.

What is happening in the U.S Army when we lock away Clint Lorance for 20 years while we dither and hide the whereabouts of deserter Bowe Bergdahl? And what a blatant slap in the face to Clint, that Bergdahl may end up with some $350,000 while Clint sits in the same facility as Nidal Hasan. Where is the outrage from the American people and our elected representatives?

I hear nothing but crickets from all these wannabe Commanders-in-Chief. Well, not a one will get my support if they don’t make a stand right now for this young American.

I share with you Clint’s words expressed to Mr. Snyder — and shared with me:

“I’ve come to believe that all that has happened to me is just my destiny. I believe I am destined to fight to change the army so that soldiers who come after me who serve in combat will know that the army and the country stand behind them and will not turn against them. If I must serve my twenty years here, I will pick up this fight from the day I am released from prison until the end of my life.”

I am astounded by this injustice, and this must be a cause for which an entire country lets its voices be heard. We have a current Commander-in-Chief who wants to open up diplomatic relations with a communist country and an Islamist theocracy, Cuba and Iran. Obama is dead set on freeing as many GITMO Islamic terrorists as possible in order to maintain a campaign promise — and Army 1LT Clint Lorance sits in a prison? Ladies and gents, this is unacceptable.

Lorance was on the front lines, making a split-second decision to protect his men. If you want to see how completely wrong this situation is, let me share how another army officer and paratrooper has been treated in what was a far more sordid and scandalous situation.

As reported by the Washington Post back in June of 2014, ” Disgraced Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair will retire as a lieutenant colonel, three months after he pleaded guilty to having a three-year romantic affair with a subordinate officer. The decision could be one of the final chapters in a sordid scandal that rocked the Army. Sinclair, 51 was accused of forcible sodomy, adultery and other charges, but struck a plea deal and avoided jail time. He was issued a reprimand that effectively ended his career and forced to pay a $20,000 fine.” However, he will still receive retirement benefits – albeit at lower level. Army Secretary John McHugh said “Sinclair displayed a pattern of inappropriate and at times illegal behavior both while serving as a Brigadier General and a Colonel.” Oh, you mean like forcible sodomy?

After his trial, Sinclair said “The system worked. I’ve always been proud of my Army. All I want to do now is go north and hug my kids and wife.” And then what, sir?

Sure, the system worked for BG Sinclair and he gets to go home and hug his wife and kids — while Anna Lorance laments over her son who honorably faced the enemy on the battlefield and killed them.

To anyone reading this post who doesn’t believe Clint Lorance should be free, I can only shake my head in abject disgust. What mother wants her son to join the Army and fight the enemy at the risk of being imprisoned? Ask Vicki Behenna. Even worse, what dad would want his daughter joining the Army knowing that the good ol’ boys seem to take care of each other? I love the U.S. Army but I detest what it’s becoming — a place where a disgraced general evades prison while a young warrior is locked up.

And where exactly is Bowe Bergdahl and that report, Secretary McHugh?

Please sign the petition on Clint’s behalf here.
We need 100,000 signatures by February 1! (Please note: your verification email once you sign the petition may go to your junk inbox, so look for it there. Thanks!)

Sexual assault is on the rise within our military The percentage rates are staggering when it comes to male on male assaults. But even with the reported cases of assaults there are many that go unaccounted because men don’t want to reveal that they have been raped and sodomized by other males. When the DoD welcomed openly gay individuals into the military they destroyed not only unit cohesion but individual trust between soldiers that is needed in team and combat situations. But that is only half the battle because sexual assaults on women have also risen both male on female… Read more »

When the communist came into power in 1917 they embraced homosexuality in all fazes of their lives. But that was quickly turned around when Stalin took power 1933. Many individuals were sent into hard labor in the gulags where many did not come out. They took a radical turn in government to control homosexuality. Even in modern Russia homosexuality is seen as a dysfunction and is highly frowned upon. Now I’m not advocating such radical treatment in this country but within the Military Rape, Sodomy, Sexual Assault and harassment in any form must be dealt with severely. There is simply… Read more »

I must disagree with you about gay people. I’m not in the least bit gay, but in my profesional life I’ve gotten to know many gay and lesbian people. From having 1000’s of conversations with them I can tell you none of them choose to be gay. As far as gay people in the armed forces they are not the cause of rape in the armed forces as rape is not a sexual crime, rather it’s a crime of power with the rapist proving (s)he has power over the person being raped. people that are gay are no more or… Read more »

Millions and millions of criminals may very well be genetically predisposed to a life of crime; we don’t give them a pass because they were born that way. Society has norms, you either conform to them or GTFO. We call the catholic priests “pedophiles” when all of these were homosexual assaults on young boys by male priests.

The problem is the left keeps trying to push homosexuality as normal which it is not. It is no more normal than having a third eye or six toes or fingers would be. I have no problem with allowing them to living the open but to call it normal is going to far.

usmc1063
Guest

I do agree with you homosexuality is not nor will it ever be normal in my books. As I last checked the Constitution they do have the right to be that way but not to the point where it effects my life and the lives of others. In other words there should be no special privileges allotted them that compromise mine.

The Declaration of Impendence is exactly what it say’s a declaration to Great Britain and the Crown that we were separating to become our own Country. The Constitution is the Laws and rules that were agreed to govern our new Nation. It says nothing that gravitates to homosexuality or special privileges for the LBGT community. It was this administration that added the built in special privileges that stood against the norm. Homosexuality is between God and Man, but the Bible gives clear and defined explanation to the pitfalls of natural or the laws of nature.

John McMickle

There should also be no demands by any small fringe group that society change the rules because they do not like the rules. A society any society has the right to set the rules and no matter what you do someone’s feeling will get hurt. Grow up and get over it.

We are living the Bible…. We have a government and half the population which calls good evil and evil good. Obama wont care about a petition if 4 million people signed it. Because Clint Lorance is an honorable man who loves his country. Stick a turban on him, set him down in Mexico and have him sneak into the country while screaming allahu ackbar and then maybe the traitor in chief would care. God help Clint and his family.

Guest
Guest

Mr. West, to be fair you should quote the evidence presented at the trial. And, with fewer volunteers available these days to serve, we all know that some bad apples get through. Rash decisions threaten the lives of other soldiers, many being our relatives and friends. New evidence that didn’t make it to trial? Good, get it out into the public arena, but don’t dismiss the evidence presented in the trial, testimony given primarily by other servicemen. You can’t casually dismiss their eye witness testimony via an online anonymous petition.

Guest to be fair, these soldiers testified because they were threatened to be charged with murder. They were given immunity to any charges of murder to testify against Lt Lorance. This evidence was deliberately with-held from the jury. Vital evidence in relation to who these men were on the motor bikes was with-held by the JAG team. It was found, there were at least 10 different data sights indicating these men were part of a terrorist organisation. There are something like 10+ procedural errors. A number of months ago ran a FB sight called “I hate Clint Lorance”. These soldiers… Read more »

United Nations Convention against Torture: Article II. You’ve heard of the UN right? That little thing the US co-founded, hosts in our country, heads and is one of the few permanent members of?

Boy, you made the accusation. It is your responsibility to come up with the citation, to-wit: section number or punitive article number of the UCMJ.

SO OBAMA had nothing to do with the denial of clemency but you guys are BLAMING obama…..please explain this one to me

I think the reason is that Obama traded 5 extremely terrorists for a deserter and Obama doesn’t do the right thing and get this man out of prison. After all he is the boss right? Why won’t he do the right thing? He has a phone and a pen to do just about anything he wants, but this isn’t something I guess he feels is wrong enough to fix.

James

The Uniform Code of Military Justice vests in the president of the United States the authority to draft and to amend the Manual for Courts-Martial, but not to interfere.

Your fighting with people do not understand how a court martial works, and think that a president gets to decide the outcome.

The truth is he violated the rules set in the Geneva Convention. The rules of engagement where drilled in all of our heads starting in basic training. Do I agree with them? No, but we are expected to follow them even if our enemies don’t.

No more involved than Bush was with September 11, but yet he is blamed for doing it. But as President, he should make it right, don’t you think. I believe all are just saying that as the highest ranking official in this country, he should make it right, don’t you think. Obama blamed Bush for everything he couldn’t fix, but he could do a good thing and free this innocent man from a life of jail, that shouldn’t have been.

Thanks

In other words……he is not involved in this case

Not the same thing. Col West wasn’t found guilty of anything illegal, nor degraded in rank. He was simply given an honorable Discharge. And what Col. West did aided our soldiers, didn’t harm them like that General did, so there’s no comparison, and if you think there is, that you need to get your values checked.

On 16 December 2014 it was reported that the U.S. government may have withheld critical information that would have been beneficial to his case. According to a letter released by Lt. Lorance’s attorney, “The Army has in its possession evidence linking Afghan military-aged males involved in this general court-martial to improvised explosive devices as well as IED attacks and terror networks in Afghanistan. The government failed to disclose this information to the chain-of-command, counsel for the defense, and the court-martial.

I won’t sign this until I read the “exculpatory” evidence that has been “withheld.” Remember, West is the same commander who left his subordinates to swing in the breeze. Guilty conscience? I don’t believe West is capable. BTW, I find it interesting that West has time to negotiate contracts for new merchandise, but no longer has time to write a daily column. You lemmings who buy his shite, insist on lining his personal pockets. Why isn’t he touting how he is donating his own money for Clint’s defense and further appeals? Sociopath, he is.
