Trump Commutes Sentence of Ronen Nahmani

What is this about?

White House:

“Today, President Donald J. Trump commuted the prison sentence of Ronen Nahmani, an action strongly supported by many notable leaders from across the political spectrum, like Representatives Hakeem Jeffries and Mark Meadows.

Mr. Nahmani is a non-violent, first-time offender with no criminal history.  He has five young children at home and his wife is suffering from terminal cancer.  These extenuating circumstances underscore the urgency of his request for clemency. …”

Who is Ronen Nahmani?

New York Times:

“President Trump granted clemency to seven men on Monday, including Ted Suhl, an Arkansas man convicted in 2016 of paying bribes to a state official.

Mr. Trump commuted Mr. Suhl’s prison sentence and that of Ronen Nahmani, a Florida man convicted in 2015 of selling synthetic marijuana. The remaining men received pardons for convictions stretching back decades. …

Mr. Nahmani, 44, was convicted in 2015 of conspiring to distributesynthetic marijuana in Florida. At the time, his lawyer argued that his client, a father of five, should receive no more than a decade behind bars, but the judge opted for the maximum sentence of 20 years.

In explaining the commutation, the White House noted the size of Mr. Nahmani’s family, his wife’s terminal cancer diagnosis and the fact that he had been a nonviolent, first-time offender with no previous criminal history …”


“President Donald Trump on Monday commuted the sentence of Boaz (Ronen) Nahmani, husband to a cancer-stricken wife and father of five young children, who in 2015 was given a maximum 20-year term for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute synthetic marijuana, a sentence decried by many legal experts as wildly disproportionate. …

His attorney, Gary Apfel, told Hamodia that in addition to the severity of the sentence, he and many others were motivated to free Nahmani so that the husband and father could return to his suffering family.

Chasdei Hashem, we are living in an age when we see open miracles,” Apfel told Hamodia. “We are so grateful to President Trump for his great compassion in granting clemency to Boaz and relief to his wife and children. In reuniting this family under these tragic circumstances, the President has performed a true act of chessed, loving-kindness, which every Jew should appreciate and applaud.”

Apfel, lead attorney for Shalom Mordechai Rubashkin – the first person to have a sentence commuted by Trump – worked on this case with many of the same players as the Rubashkin case, including legal scholar Alan Dershowitz.

“This is a real case of pikuach nefesh, because there are children here whose mother is seriously ill with cancer and whose father would have been in prison, and in the event the mother were to have passed, would have been all alone,” Dershowitz told Hamodia. “So what President Trump did was the right thing; he ought to be praised for saving lives and doing a mitzvah. This was a team effort involving lots of people, including Gary and many others who acted selflessly to bring about this pidyon shivuyim. And I think it will be an important part of President Trump’s legacy that he did the right thing for the right reasons.” …

Among those who called were Rep. and Debbie Meadows, whom Mrs. Nahmani described as “such amazing people.”

“And President Trump, I have no words to ever describe how grateful we are to him that he made this happen. I always knew, even before he became president, that he does a lot of chessed. We just are forever and ever thankful to him, and to all of am Yisrael, who came together from all over the world.

“There are people we never met, who accepted mitzvot – like to cover their hair, light candles earlier Friday, to eat kosher, to give tezedakah – as a zechut.”

Mrs. Nahmani had just gotten off the phone with her husband.

“He called me and his voice was shaking,” she said. “He was in shock, too.”

Readers are asked to daven for the refuah sheleimah of Mrs. Nahmani, Rus bas Sarah, b’soch sh’ar cholei Yisrael.

What is Pikuach nefesh?

“The Talmud discusses a number of cases as examples in which biblically mandated laws can be disregarded for the sake of saving a human life. (B.Yoma 84b) All of these examples relate to Sabbath prohibitions: rescuing a child from the sea, breaking apart a wall that has collapsed on a child, breaking down a door about to close on an infant, and extinguishing a fire to save a life. …”

So, this is like rescuing an innocent child from the sea, right?

“Trial evidence showed Nahmani bought multi-kilo shipments of illegal powdery chemicals from China and converted them into both leafy and liquid synthetic cannabis for distribution in Florida and other parts of the country, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.

Drug Enforcement Administration agents say synthetic cannabinoids are potentially deadly because users don’t know the actual content, dosage and potency of the synthetic drug.

In July 2014, investigators stopped Nahmani and linked him to a large supply of powdery cannabis chemicals that he stored in a warehouse, prosecutors said. The warehouse also contained equipment for making the synthetic products and packaging with labels such as “Scooby Snax,” “Diablo” “Platinum” and “Fire.”

Oh man … well, that’s understandable.

This is not another case like Sholom Rubashkin of Orthodox Jews leaning on their connections to the White House to get things they want like the Golan Heights or the end of the Iran deal. It’s an open miracle that this unprecedented winning streak for Jews continues!

    • Madoff ripped of way too many Jews to get his sentence commuted. That’s largely how he got away with it for so long – other Jews trusted him as “one of them”, and the few who raised concerns were dismissed as somehow traitors.

    • Bernie Madoff is thought by some to be in fact on the beach in Haifa Israel, having a drink and living off a part of the 50 billion he stole … waiting for Jeffrey Epstein to arrive so they can swap tall tales

      One question not considered enough in the cospiracy sphere, is how easy it is to fake someone being in prison … guards are told he is ‘somewhere else’, and those who suspect can have their careers destroyed if they try to say anything … and then, who would print the ‘revelation’ except some ‘blog’

      Some of these ‘murderers’ don’t look real at all … in 2011 there was the media-covered story of the shooting-wounding of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords in Arizona, masking the real story, which was that it was an assassination of USA Federal Judge John Roll who had just ruled against Obama

      Killing Federal Judge Roll was a message not for the public, but for the other 865 USA federal judges, followed by the 2016 ‘found dead with a pillow over his face’ death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who had also coincidentally just ruled against Obama

      Giffords & Judge Roll were allegedly shot by this weird-looking Addams-family type guy, Jared Loughner … just look at the photos, is he real? … and of course people there at the crime scene, reported more than one shooter

  1. As the Rise Above guys weren’t convicted of anything worse than “intent to commit violence,” whatever that is, I also look forward to their pardon…. Just kidding, silly goys and shiksas! They’ll be fighting to avoid being raped by gorillas in prison until their full sentence has been served.

  2. If whippings were the common punishment for crime rather than jail time, I strongly suspect that many less people would use and sell drugs.

    • They were still doing judicial floggings in the USA state of Delaware in the 1950s, when Delaware’s Joe Biden was growing up there. Delaware was also, along with Washington State, one of the last two places where USA judicial hangings took place, in the 1990s.

      The impulse to impose physical penalties on people is not a healthy one. They are so degrading and mentally as well as physically scarring, they will turn a low-level criminal into a murderer. It is actually somewhat satanic for governments to do these things, and as with the death penalty, it is the upper-class toffs who won’t suffer the extremes.

      Even the Muslims have a theologian, Tariq Ramadan, who is recommending that all Islamic governments completely end the death penalty, and all floggings, amputations, stonings, and physical penalties of any kind. He uses the argument that, because societies are not just and fair, you cannot apply the penalties for the Qur’an, as people are responding to their twisted surroundings.

  3. Article VI, US Constitution:

    The Jewish Talmud, and the laws which shall be made in pursuance of Israeli and Jewish intersts, and all treaties made or which shall be made by way of the US Congress under authority of the State of Israel and the Jewish people, shall be the Supreme Law of the Land.

    Wait! What?!

  4. And he moved the embassy to Jerusalem, too! What a mensch. What a righteous goy.

    Let out the black nigros. Let out the jews.

    I am so sick of this president for (Eretz) Israel.

  5. Nice potatus blumpf shalom for showing gratitude to another of gods chosen people now can you pardon the RAM boys who are in prison for years because they defended themselves against the democrat antifa terrorist shitheads and publicly supported you in your name?

  6. Not to be a libertatian or anything but I find most drug charges are bullshit, I have always been more in favor of pot legalization over alcohol but i find synthetic marijuana is way more dangerous then real marijuana but this shifty heeb was ordering kilos of synthetic mary jane for mass profit and ordering it from china huge difference from a personal use standpoint

    • I wanna to correct myself here alcohol is already legal obviously, but what I meant is alcohol is more dangerous and has a bigger range of problems then pot usage

  7. Yeah, so much winning…like some dope-peddling nog gives one shit about he chillun’z…gon’ win dem’ POC/POS votes fo’ sho’…and why can’t that child-raping kike keep his trap shut?

  8. Just heard Trump looked into the James Field convictions and he’s putting pressure on DOJ to see that Fields gets a fair trial this time. Yeah, right. Jews & POCs get all the “miracles”.
