Seventeen years ago, then-first lady Hillary Clinton persuaded her husband to grant clemency to a group of Puerto Rican terrorists who 24 years earlier had murdered the father of a 9-year-old boy named Joseph Connor on his and his brother’s birthday.
Speaking with The Daily Wire this week, Connor recalled how he and his 11-year-old brother were at home with their mother on Jan. 24, 1975, waiting for their father Frank Connor to arrive from work so they could celebrate their birthdays.
“I remember my dad always being there for us, taking us to Met games, playing with us, playing basketball with us, playing, kicking around a soccer ball, doing, you know, just always being there,” he said. “He was a young guy, he was only 33. And he loved us, and he gave us a great childhood until that day.”
Frank never returned home, because it was on that day that the Puerto Rican Armed Forces for National Liberation detonated a bomb in Fraunces Tavern in New York, killing four people, including Connor
The attackers were eventually rounded up and sentenced to life for other bombings committed in Chicago, but that changed in 1999, when Hillary Clinton received a request from several legislators asking that she convince her husband to offer the terrorists executive clemency.
Then on Aug. 11, 1999, lo and behold, President Bill Clinton offered clemency to nearly every one of the incarcerated terrorists, save for Oscar López Rivera, who refused clemency over various concerns, including the demand that he and the other FALN members renounce violence.
Incidentally, several legislators, including Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, have since begun demanding that Rivera be offered clemency again, because his time behind bars has prevented him from spending time with his children and grandchildren, the poor dear.

“I didn’t get to spend time with my father,” Connor said regarding this new push for clemency. “My father didn’t get to meet his grandkids, and whose fault is that?”
It’s the fault of Rivera and the other conniving terrorist scumbags who murdered his father — and who because of Hillary Clinton were allowed to continue with their lives (save for Rivera) as if nothing had ever happened.
Hillary Rodham Clinton is far worse than a career criminal and phony politician; she’s an anti-American monster whose actions directly led to a number of terrorists being released from incarceration after they murdered the father of a 9-year-old boy named Joseph Connor.
