Ramos And Compean Are Going Home by Chuck Baldwin

Posted by soldierservant on May 21, 2009

Amen to this! Preach it Chuck! Bush talked about their crimes? What
crimes? Doing their job was a crime? If anyone needs to be sentenced it
is Bush.  I PRAY TO GOD THAT JUSTICE WILL CATCH UP TO GWB FOR ALL HIS
CRIMES! Those who seem to escape justice in this life will have eternal
hell to pay. Where are the leftist leaders and why are they not speaking
out against all of Bush’s crimes? This proves that they are no
different. From one scoundrel to another. Obama’s color does not make
him a saint. He is just another scoundrel. May they all burn in hell.
God is the only fair and just judge and all will have to answer to Him!
Jesus is returning to judge this wicked world and all who partake in its
darkness. Hypocrite apostates talk about endtime revival, which only
amounts to a display of emotions and nothing else. If there was to be a
true godly revival we would know it by its fruit. If there was true
revival the homeless would be taken care of and no true saint of God
would be living it up while there are starving people all around them.
Those rich would follow Jesus’ advice and sell all they have to give to
the poor. If there was revival then people would have better discernment
then following and looking up to scoundrels and apostates. If there was
revival then there would not be so many winds of doctrines and doctrines
of devils that are ever so popular today. Hypocrites that think
following God just means attending church on the false sabbath and live
like the world the rest of the time. To truly follow God means that you
are not conformed to all the lies of this world like that of politics
and apostate institutions. It is exactly how the bible says of the end
times, which proves that God’s word is true and every man a liar. Man’s
teachings teach of an endtime revival and a secret rapture, which
contradicts what Christ’s taught. Choose this day whom you will serve.
It is either Christ or man. It cannot be both.

After tens of thousands of phone calls and emails, after the combined
efforts of columnists such as myself and radio and television talk show
hosts such as Lou Dobbs, and even after persistent appeals by congressmen
such as Dana Rohrabacher, former Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose
Compean finally received a commutation of their 10-plus year prison
sentences from outgoing President George W. Bush and will soon be going
home. It’s about time! What took Mr. Bush so long?

Ramos and Compean were victimized by an out-of-control U.S. Attorney by the
name of Johnny Sutton (who should be fired for his despicable conduct), and
by a White House that cared more about appeasing the Mexican government than
it did about protecting the American border and the Border Patrol agents who
were trying to do their jobs.

I won’t rehash the details of this unbelievable miscarriage of justice, as I
have already covered this atrocity in past columns. See two of these columns
at:

I was also privileged to appear with Agent Ramos’ wife, Monica, on the Lou
Dobbs show last year. As such, I was the only Presidential candidate in 2008
who publicly promised to fully pardon (not just grant commutation to) Ramos
and Compean. See the video at:

According to press reports, now that President Bush has commuted the
sentences of Ramos and Compean, they should be released from prison "within
the next two months." In issuing the commutation, it was made clear that
"Bush didn’t pardon the men for their crimes, but decided instead to commute
their prison sentences because he believed they were excessive and that they
had already suffered the loss of their jobs, freedom and reputations."

The senior administration official quoted also said, "The action by the
president, who believes the border agents received fair trials and that the
verdicts were just, does not diminish the seriousness of their crimes."

Ramos and Compean have served about two years of their sentences.

And, as far as what the Bush administration official said, let’s set the
record straight. First of all, while Ramos and Compean have lost their jobs
and more than two years of freedom (not to mention untold grief and agony by
their family members), they have not lost their reputations. If anyone has
lost their reputation, it is Johnny Sutton and George W. Bush, his act of
clemency notwithstanding.

Secondly, if the trial and conviction of Ramos and Compean is an example of
a "fair trial," everyone in the country better pray they never have to go to
trial. The truth is, if there ever was an example of a Kangaroo Court in
these United States, it was the trial of Ramos and Compean.

Thirdly, the "crimes" that were committed were perpetrated by a serial
drug-smuggling illegal alien, and then by a groveling, grotesque U.S.
Attorney’s office under the leadership of Johnny Sutton.

And lest readers think that Ramos and Compean were alone in the wake of a
Presidential administration bent on sacrificing American law enforcement
personnel on the altar of appeasement to the Mexican government, please
familiarize yourself with the case of the brave Texas Sheriff’s Deputy,
Gilmer Hernandez; and with the case of the heinous Mexican murderer, Jose
Ernesto Medellin. It is incomprehensible what the Bush administration has
done to facilitate illegal immigration. See the story at:

http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/c2007/cbarchive_20070413.html

Am I happy that President Bush has at least commuted the sentences of Ramos
and Compean? Of course I am. I am happy for the two agents; I am happy for
their families. They deserve to be together. I pray it will not take months
to release them. And I also pray that both of these gentlemen will find
gainful employment sufficient to adequately meet the needs of their wives
and children.

It is shameful that the country agents Ramos and Compean were so proud and
diligent to serve treated them (and their families) so disgracefully.
Furthermore, it is totally disgusting to realize that the Bush
administration treated a serial drug-smuggling illegal alien better than two
Border Patrol agents who were simply trying to enforce our country’s
immigration laws. Bush’s commutation of sentence does nothing to erase that
humiliation.
