On Thursday, February 20, 2020, a federal judge sentenced Roger Stone to three years and four months in prison for obstruction of proceedings before departments, agencies and committees.
Roger Stone is a very well-known American political consultant. Stone has been a friend and ally to President Donald J. Trump for over 30 years, according to Stones’ website, TheStoneZone.com.
Also on February 20, Trump tweeted out: “‘They say Roger Stone lied to Congress.’ @CNN OH, I see, but so did Comey (and he also leaked classified information, for which almost everyone, other than Crooked Hillary Clinton, goes to jail for a long time), and so did Andy McCabe, who also lied to the FBI! FAIRNESS?”
Many political projectionists are saying that Trump will issue a presidential pardon for Stone. If Trump does in fact issue a pardon to Stone, then it would be another case of someone with power, wealth and connections receiving what I call the “Elite Pass.”
The “Elite Pass” is when someone with wealth, power and connections are given an incredibly less harsh sentence or no sentence at all for doing something wrong or illegal. The sad part of the whole “Elite Pass” situation is that if an ordinary average Joe did the same thing, they would most likely be given the normal sentence or a harsher sentence.
Some of you may be wondering, “Why does this happen?” Well, in the end it all boils down to two major components of the machine that runs the globe: Money and Power.
Both of these components go hand in hand because as someone amasses more and more wealth, they gain more and more influence as their profits continuously rise.
Once someone gains enough wealth and influence, they start to gain power over the product that they supply to the world and, depending on the popularity and importance of their product, they could use their product as ransom to make the illusion of them being untouchable by everything.
In reality this illusion, like all illusions, is false and deceiving because no one is truly above the rule of law. Yet, not many people have been able to break away from the line and fight against the elite class, at least until recently.
Today, the name Harvey Weinstein usually gives the feeling of disgust to most people for the atrocious crimes he clearly committed. As of February 22, 2020, the trial against Weinstein is still going on, but rumors are surfacing that the jury for the case are struggling to reach a unanimous vote on the case.
My question is, why is this happening when the evidence is clearly there? My theory is that there is some sort of backroom dealings going on, aka Mr. Weinstein is attempting to receive the “Elite Pass.”
I have a feeling that in the end Weinstein will receive a slightly less harsh sentence, but it will still be significant enough to send out a message to other elites that says that they aren’t untouchable.
In the end, the best way to sum up how to figure out how the “Elite Pass” works is a quote from one of my high school forensics class teachers, “Follow the money and the crime will show itself.”
