Ali Charaf Damache, age 53, an Algerian born Irish Citizen, will serve 15 years after pleading guilty to terrorism charges. He is notable as being the first terrorism suspect brought to the United States under Trump.
Under his plea agreement, he has waived appeals. He will be deported to Ireland or Algeria when he completes his sentence.
Glad to see the prosecution of terrorists through the American judicial system is still working as it should. I remember having quite a few exchanges on these boards back in the day with people who were AGHAST at the idea of giving terrorists formal trials on American soil. It worked back then and it works now.
I am not, nor have I ever denied such a thing. In fact, I was the one pointing his nature out during the primaries.
But ALL politicians do lie, to a greater or lesser extent, and their zombie supporters eat it up.
Democrats circled the wagons for Bill Clinton, when he was spewing B.S. He may have only been spewing it 50% to 60% of the time, compared to Trump’s 100%, but he was spewing all the same and his supporters circled the wagon.
I on the other hand, stuck a finger down my throat and cast my vote for Hillary Clinton, who, herself is a piece of ****, but relatively lesser piece of ****, perhaps 70% to 80% **** compared to Trump’s 100%.
I was not happy about having to do so, but I don’t regret it.
What is pathetic is had the Democrats nominated literally ANYBODY ELSE except Clinton, Trump would not be President now.
I will be active in 2020 trying to dislodge Trump.
