Rebel Buzz: Free Matthew Charles; Dinesh D'Souza — and Samantha Bee

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor

I touched on Matthew Charles' story in yesterday's video but his story deserves its own segment.

In 1996, Charles was sentenced to 35 years in the big house after being convicted of drug dealing with aggravated circumstances. Charles was released in 2016 after commutations were issued by the Obama administration for drug offenders. He had served 21 years of his 35-year sentence.

Then, this year, a court determined that Matthew Charles didn't qualify for clemency and he must serve the remainder of his sentence.

Charles not only was an exemplary inmate while he was in prison. His behavior since his release shows that he has become a responsible, contributory citizen.

Celebrities, politicians and news outlets alike, including well known conservative one, have expressed support for a Presidential pardon for Matthew Charles.

Making sure someone serves out the full extent of their punishment for the rest of their life no matter what personal improvements they've made, or incentivizing inmates to rehabilitate themselves and become productive citizens once given a second chance?


Obama turned the White House into a presidential party pad. Trump is turning it into a presidential pardon pad.

President Trump posthumously pardoned boxing champion Jack Johnson last week. And he's on a roll! Dinesh D’Souza served a sentence for an FEC violation that is often punished by a fine... unless you’re a conservative. Rosie O’Donnell's campaign finance violations were exponentially more egregious than D'Souza's and her crimes went virtually unnoticed.

But D'Souza admitted to his crime, did his time and paid his fine and now he has the last laugh after the President issued him a full pardon.

Dinesh then tweeted this:

"KARMA IS A BITCH DEPT: @PreetBharara wanted to destroy a fellow Indian American to advance his career. Then he got fired and I got pardoned."

That's likely the best tweet you'll see all week, maybe all month.

And to wrap up our Rebel Buzz today, unfunny lady Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump a word — a, er, "see you next Tuesday," if you know what I mean.

If she had said this about Obama’s daughters, can you imagine the reaction? She’d have been yanked off air before the next commercial break even aired.

Bee has since apologized, just like Rosanne did. But will her show be cancelled too?

Regardless, stop patronizing jerks like Samantha Bee. There are more worthy programs out there.

Or for goodness sakes, pick up a book. Start this weekend.

This happens too often and I hate it. A reporter slips up and after giving kudos to President Trump for pardoning Danesh D’Souza, at 5:07 on Amanda Heads video, she states ‘President Obama served up a delicious slice of justice’. Have people’s brains been deranged? PLEASE be more careful, watch your dialogue & edit the error.

- The judicial system is supposed to be about rehabilitation & it sounds like Matthew Charles has been rehabilitated.

- Dinesh D’Souza was punished for exposing Obama. That’s what that was about.

- Samantha Bee is a talentless hack whos’ career depends on doing far left propaganda for her dozens of fans.

I wonder when Rosie O Donnell will go to jail like Dinesh for breaking the same law in a worse way??

John Spartan have you not invited a refugee into your home yet?

John Spartan remember your words on this issue for when you and the left make an exception for someone in the future for a racist tweet.

John Spartan what Bee said was worse, you are placing your own bigoted assumption on the tweet. And the cable aspect is meaningless as Roseanne never said anything on the air. BIG DIFFERENCE!!

Excellent Tweet Dinesh D’Souza!

Samantha Bee has defiled herself and her demented ilk with her unprovoked profane defamation of Ivanka Trump, the soles of whose shoes she isn’t worthy to lick. No self-respecting media outlet would air her again.

Rosanne Barr thought Valerie Jarrett was white, so her remark wasn’t racist (although it was rude and crude), and the MSM is lying when they say is was. Hopefully Americans will eventually see through their lies.
