Another Patriotic Petition! Free This Soldier!


Sensible and patriotic Americans were united in their approval when President Trump granted Sheriff Joe Arpaio a pardon.

But here’s another good guy in trouble who deserves support, and if Allen West is on his side, so then should you be.

Please read and take appropriate action!

Dear Fellow Patriot, 

President Obama refused to pardon an innocent U.S. soldier before he left office. 

Now I’m asking you to sign this PRESIDENTIAL PARDON PETITION FOR ARMY 1LT CLINT LORANCE urging President Trump to do what Obama refused to: send this innocent soldier home where he belongs! 

In July, 2012, 1LT Clint Lorance was sent to Afghanistan to replace a platoon leader who was seriously wounded in a Taliban attack. On his third day on the job, Clint and his men were on patrol when a U.S. helicopter radioed that a motorcycle was sitting outside of the village near a road only used by the Taliban. When the motorcycle started gunning toward the platoon, 1LT Lorance ordered his marksman to fire. 

Two of the riders were killed. The other was captured in the village, where days earlier a U.S. soldier was shot in the neck. 

Those of us who have been stationed in Afghanistan know the tactics and actions of the enemy. 

Without a doubt, these men posed a threat to Clint’s platoon. And as the commanding officer, Clint knew he was responsible for getting every single one of his soldiers back to base alive. 

Yet our own government didn’t agree. 1LT Lorance was convicted of murder and sentenced to 20 years at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth. And even though the government withheld critical evidence during the trial that could have proven Clint’s innocence, the three judges on the Army Court of Criminal Appeals recently ruled that Clint will stay in prison.

Now you know why I’m asking you to follow this link to sign the PRESIDENTIAL PARDON PETITION right away. 

You see, it is customary for U.S. Presidents to grant high-profile pardons just before leaving office. However, when Obama’s term came to an end on January 20, 2017, he refused to commute Clint’s sentence.

  • Instead, Obama did commute the sentence of traitor Bradley Manning, who leaked sensitive national security information and put our troops at risk.
  • He did commute the sentence of Puerto Rican nationalist Oscar Lopez Rivera, who was serving 50 years in prison for plotting to overthrow the U.S. government and whose group killed four Americans in a New York City bombing in 1975.
  • And of course he pardoned and commuted the sentences of hundreds of criminal cocaine and heroin dealers.

As a combat veteran, I’m disgusted that Obama let traitors, drug dealers and murderers out of prison early – while 1LT Lorance is left to serve a 20-year sentence for protecting his men on the battlefield! 

But now that Donald Trump has taken office, you and I have a new chance to finally free 1LT Lorance. 

Will you follow this link to sign the PRESIDENTIAL PARDON PETITION to Donald Trump right now? 

My friend, Clint Lorance signed up to serve his country and risked his life on the battlefield to protect your freedom. When his men were threatened, he did exactly what our military trained him to do. 

As a combat veteran with 22 years of service, I can’t turn my back on this young soldier. And I hope you won’t either…

Steadfast and loyal,

LTC(R) Allen West 
Congressman (2011-2013) 

P.S. If you agree that it’s time for President Trump to do what Barack Obama refused to – and send this innocent American soldier home to his family! – then please sign the PRESIDENTIAL PARDON FOR ARMY 1LT CLINT LORANCE right away…
