PRESS RELEASE – TEA PARTY OF LOUISIANA CALLS FOR LT. CLINT LORANCE TO BE RELEASED FROM PRISON – PARDONED ASAP!

                   For Immediate Release

 

BATON ROUGE - The Tea Party of Louisiana (TPoL) on behalf of our 14,600+ activist members across Louisiana calls for the release of Lt. Clint Lorance from prison and ultimately pardoned.

We ask that every American citizen join with us in this very important quest.  Get updates, learn more, take action and donate to the cause at www.FREEclintlorance.com.

1Lt Clint Lorance

The Tea Party of Louisiana (TPoL) Is Supporting Freedom for Lt. Clint Lorance who is serving time in a federal prison for 20 years for engaging the Taliban enemy in Afghanistan that he was sent there to fight. How can that happen? Because the Obama Administration put UNREALISTIC restrictions on our combat troops in Rules of Engagement that made our troops fair game for the enemy who could ambush us, attack us and fire upon us before we were allowed to exercise THE INALIENABLE RIGHT OF SELF DEFENSE and return fire. This made it virtually impossible to engage the enemy effectively and win the war, not having the element of surprise or being able to really go on the offensive. These Obama Rules of Engagement were more concerned about enemy casualties than our own losses. Our troops were expected to die for these Rules of Engagement rather than fight successfully for our freedom and the freedom of the people of Afghanistan.

The Tea Party of Louisiana has therefore resolved to help Lt. Clint Lorance gain his freedom along with other soldiers in similar situations. We will work through Members of Congress and officials in the Executive Branch of the Federal Government to get relief for these faithful warriors who are being cruelly imprisoned for simply doing their job and actually fighting the enemy. This is especially outrageous as the regular rules of engagement have now been restored by the Trump Administration, but soldiers are still being tried and imprisoned under the Obama Rules that were in effect for the past 8 years. This double standard must be stopped. The Obama Administration must not be allowed to continue oppressing our loyal troops even after leaving office through their rules that were in effect for the past 8 years.

When There is No Rule of Law

by Ron Paul

 

Last week ended with some promising news on finally stopping the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.  Unfortunately, the administration still seems to believe that shutting down working oil wells is a higher priority than effectively dealing with the broken one.   They are again issuing a moratorium on off-shore drilling, while maintaining a de facto ban on new permits even for shallow water drilling, which they previously stated would be unaffected.  The courts have twice declared this unconstitutional, over 70 percent of the people see this as unreasonable, yet the administration seems determined to simply end off-shore drilling, at least for those producers that cannot afford to sit idle for an unknown period of time until the ban is lifted.

 

Whether or not this latest effort will hold up in court is yet to be seen.  Sadly, many smaller oil producers in the Gulf see the writing on the wall, and instead of waiting around and risking their livelihoods on the whims of American politicians and judges, they are leaving for friendlier business climates.  What is happening to this country when the Republic of Congo is better for business than the United States?  One big factor is regime uncertainty.

 

Regime uncertainty is the opposite of the rule of law.  It is the rule of the whims of the people in charge and what mood they are in on any particular day.  It is usually associated with third world dictatorships and plays a major role in why some countries remain poor.  When a business cannot predict whether a government will issue a permit, confiscate or nationalize their capital investments, tax them into bankruptcy, or arbitrarily stall their operations, they tend to do business elsewhere.   This type of government hostility is not conducive to wealth creation and it is tragic to see it chasing away businesses here when we need the jobs and productivity more than ever.
