The Constitution, in Article Two, Section Two,
gives the President the power to grant
"reprieves and pardons" for offenses against
the United States.
The little blue rulebook of the US Justice Department
now has these important words interpreted more
narrowly than ever before: restricting the President to
granting pardons only on behalf of people who themselves
have been convicted of Federal offenses.
This flies in the face of several US Supreme Court
decisions and opinions which allow the President to
grant reprieves and pardons to anyone he (or she)
wants to, for any reason.
The reason why the pardoning power clause is where
it is in the US Constitution - directly following the clause
which describes the Oath of Office - is that in order for
the President to BE ABLE to "preserve, protect and defend"
the Constitution, he has to have the power to do this whenever
Courts and prosecutors take action that flies in the face of
the Constitution and its guarantees of civil liberties and
equal justice under law. Otherwise, the President is
powerless; and his Oath of Office is a joke.
The Article Six "Law of the Land" clause, and Article Four
Section Four of the Constitution, in the "republican Form"
clause, clearly give the President and Congress, either
solely or jointly, the power to nullify State actions which are
contrary to the Constitution and its Fourteenth Amendment
mandate of equal justice under law in every State.
We need to make sure the President knows this; because
apparently he either is being misinformed by his advisors,
or he hasn't been able to make the above Constitutional
resets a top priority. Recent events, however, strongly
indicate that the above Constitutional resets as described
here SHOULD be a top priority of the President. Not only
are victims of injustice piling up in every State, but the
international reputation of the United States has completely
collapsed under the watch of this particular President.
This discrediting of the United States started long before
the Snowden episode; and was a unanimous international
reaction to the fact that people in the United States are more
likely now to be victims of injustice, malicious prosecution
and unfair trials, than at any time in history.
THE REMEDY SOUGHT is that Congress pass an
Act To Define Presidential Powers To Grant Reprieves
And Pardons:
The President shall have power to grant Reprieves and
Pardons for offences (offenses) against the United States
as follows:
1) Whenever any State has been averrably described
by any Attorney licensed to practice law in that State
to have acted in any way that is contrary to the Constitution
of the United States in any particular; or to any Federal statute, 
without regard to whether or not the individual petitioning for
a pardon and reprieve has actually committed a Federal
offence (offense) himself or herself, or has been accused
or convicted of any Federal offence (offense).
2) Whenever there is a clearly identifiable conflict of
interest with respect to the possibility of the granting
of any pardon and reprieve by the Governor of any State
in any particular State prosecution; due to the
prior involvement of the Governor as a prosecutor against
the person petitioning for a Presidential reprieve and pardon.
3) Whenever any humanly-manufactured or man-made
disaster is inflicted, in violation of the Constitution as
averred by any practicing attorney who is licensed in
the State or Territory in which such violation has taken
place, against any citizen or lawful resident of the
United States by any official under the jurisdiction of the
United States. Such Constitutional violations in this
context shall include, but shall not be limited to
judicial matters. The form of reprieve granted may
take the form of emergency disaster assistance,
exactly or substantially as in the granting of emergency
disaster assistance for natural disasters.
4) A Presidential reprieve for offences (offenses)
against the United States may be granted without
respect to whether or not the person petitioning for
the reprieve has been convicted of or accused of any
offence (offense) of any type; or as a means
of preserving, protecting and defending the
Constitution of the United States against a
clearly present Constitutional crisis, regardless
of the legal status of the individual for whom a
pardon and reprieve is requested.
5) The fact that a person has been granted a reprieve
and pardon, or a pardon without a reprieve, or a reprieve
without a pardon, does not require, indicate or imply any
acknowledgement of guilt on the part of the person
to whom a pardon has been or will be granted,
or is being granted. It is an acknowledgment
by the President that some form of clemency is necessary
in the situation in which he has granted a pardon, in order for
the President to live up to his Oath of Office in the
context of preserving, protecting and defending
the Constitution of the United States.
6) The word "for", in the Article Two, Section Two
Constitutional clause which gives the President the
power to grant pardons and reprieves, indicates that
such reprieves and pardons may be granted "in the context of"
offences (offenses) against the United States,
whenever any State or any official under the authority
of any such State, shall have been averred by any
practicing attorney licensed to practice law in that
State, of having committed an offense against the
United States by way of violating the Constitutionally
guaranteed privileges and immunities, or rights, of
the individual on whose behalf a pardon and reprieve
is being petitioned for, or by violating any Act of Congress
in any way which clearly constitutes an offence (offense)
against the United States, by the State or official acting under
color of authority of that State, in any such petition for a
Presidential pardon and reprieve.
7) The word "State", in this Act, shall also be taken
to indicate "Territory" or "District" of the United States
whenever there is a petition for a Presidential reprieve
and pardon with respect to any legal episode or situation
averred by any attorney licensed to practice law before
the Supreme Court of the United States, in which a
Presidential reprieve and pardon is being petitioned for.
8) Nothing in this Act shall extend the granting of Presidential
pardons and reprieves to corporations whose existence
is essentially impersonal and by charter only; or to broad
classes of people unless such classes or groups of people
are affected by legal circumstances which are strictly and
precisely identical; as averred by a licensed practicing
attorney. Nevertheless the President may grant pardons
in cluster form, and petitions to the President may be
considered valid if made in the form of a pardon to be
granted in a cluster form, even if the legal matters are
not identical in any way within the context of that cluster,
and even if the petition for a cluster pardon is made
informally and by a petitioner who is not a licensed
practicing attorney.
9) The President may authorize or recognize the formation
of a Federal Independent Special Transgovernment
Prosecutor, or FIST Prosecutor, in every State or in any
group of States, who shall have power to report to the
President petitions and recommendations for reprieves
and pardons, as well as recommendations to remove
from office any official in any State, or in the Federal
government, of any description, who is averred to have
been violating the Constitution of the United States, or
conducting himself (herself) in a pattern of conduct
which shows a clear intent to violate the Constitution
or contempt for any of its existing provisions.
The FIST Prosecutor shall meet with the President
or his advisors regularly, to provide a service to the
President which is similar to or identical to the service
offered by the Office of the Pardon Attorney.
10) The President shall have power to grant reprieves
and pardons in many forms, including pardon,
commutation, remission of fines, reprieve, and
emergency disaster relief, exoneration, expungement
of records, reinstatement of insurance policies,
remission of foreclosure, rescinding of Sheriff's
sales, restoration of property rights, forgiveness
of taxes, restoration of driving privileges, restoration
of credit to A-1 status, writing and granting of Letters
of Declaration of Actual Innocence, restoration of
property and vehicles, removal of liens from property
deeds, and recommendations to Congress for further
action. The President is also authorized to grant
Federal surplus property as a form of reprieve,
whenever the damages have been substantial
enough to call for such form of reprieve, and
whenever this shall be agreeable to the person
petitioning for a reprieve. The President may
grant pardons and reprieves without prejudice;
or, if agreeable to the person on whose behalf
a pardon and reprieve is being petitioned for,
in a way which is characterized by finality and
closure of all issues involved. The President
shall have power to grant diplomatic credentials
and Federal appointments to grantees of
Presidential reprieves, as a method of exoneration
and providing relief from further legal duress.
The President shall have power to grant Federal
witness protection to people who are granted
Presidential pardons and reprieves. The President
and Congress shall also recognize the principle
that full Faith and Credit do not apply to cases in
which any State or Territory has violated the
Constitution, as averred by a licensed practicing
attorney in the United States, and subsequently
invoked extradition. The President and Congress
shall recognize the right of citizens of any State
to seek safe passage, protected sanctuary and political
asylum in any other State or Territory of the United States
as a means of defending their innocence and their rights
as defined by the Constitution; however, no person shall
be justified under this law in fleeing from one State or
Territory to another as a means of avoiding prosecution
or penalty for actual wrongs committed.
No one under the jurisdiction of the United States shall,
in any place, question any Reprieve or Pardon granted
by the President in its essential form, and to the person
for whom it shall have been granted.
