Vanity: O'Reilly Says "Hell To Pay" If Marine Not Released.

Posted on 12/18/2012 8:37:29 PM PST by ConservativeMan55

Just watched O'Reilly interview the parents of Jon Hammar, the Marine, detained in Mexico for a bogus gun charge.

O'Reilly says he's going to give Obama and the State Department 3 days to get this done.

Otherwise he says there will be "hell to pay"

I know many of you don't like Bill, etc... BUT

He is going after this story. And he does have connections and the power to get things done.

I think we're going to see some people confronted real soon.

O’Reilly is a windbag. Period, end of story. Mr AK-15 doesn’t know his ass from his elbow.

Like I said, many of us may not like him.. but

he does have influence. And he’s giving this story attention.. so more power to him.

This Marine needs to be released!

Of course he needs to be released. By force if necessary. But O’Reilly is not your guy. Call your Congressman. I have.

I just don’t think it’s helpful to bash someone who is giving the story attention.

Calling our Congressman does diddly if they have no media pressure.

Bill finally got on the right side of an issue.

Next up, release of the Pakistani doctor who help us get OBL then on to the poor sob who made that stupid video about Mohammed.

Isn't this HILLARY's job? I know she's just to sick to tend to business right now/s, but who else is in charge?

Now if it were a wine tasting event, bet she would get well pronto.

Yep I would think it would be Hillary’s job.

But it shouldn’t even come to that. Someone, such as the President, should have made a call long ago.

Obama probably backs the guy being charged sadly.

The signs entering Mexico are clear that it is against the law to carry weapons in that country.

The Second Amendment does to apply in Mexico.

In other words, someone at the State Department told Billo's producer that the Mexicans were planning on kicking him loose tomorrow or the next day...

Giving the story attention is great. His pretending that he directly influences events or does a damn thing about them is ridiculous.

This self aggrandizement is standard schtik for many of our talk show hosts. Do you ever listen to them fall over one another as they claim they were the first one to make a suggestion, or that world events took place because they said something? And then they complain that all the other hosts are copying them.

He has an audience of millions each night. I’ve worked in the media so I understand exactly how it can be used.

I believe O’Reilly will begin to confront politicians and make their life hell until they do something.

O’Reilly started pushing for Jessica’s law and he himself has got it passed in almost every state!

Here’s some video that will in the very least.. give you some entertainment! :)

Welp, unfortunately we don’t have much media on our side. So when someone gives attention to a story such as this, I don’t feel the need to bash them.

Sorry but nobody’s perfect. I’d rather have a blowhard than either A) no one OR B) Chrissy Matthews on every channel??

he does have influence. And he’s giving this story attention.. so more power to him.

Yes he does have influence, but O'Reilly is the ultimate panderer.

Well, maybe not for Christmas - it takes a couple of days for the UN to draft a strong nastygram.

Perhaps UNICEF could visit him in jail, and give him some Halloween candy?

I don’t quite get why our Marine was convinced he could carry south of the border, given a sign like that. Who would risk it, even when given an okay by some dolt, with a sign like that? I can’t imagine a Marine making that kind of decision.

Of course I want this man home, as in yesterday, and after all that we do for Mexican aliens breaking our laws, there is no excuse for Mexico, but this catastrophe was completely predictable and the outcome guaranteed. The sign said it all. Stooopid.

I know a guy that got caught with a few .22LR rounds rolling around in his truck in the early 80’s in Mexico (no gun) He didn’t even know they were there.

Well, he is lucky he was able to pay them off.

Like I said, not asking for the media to be perfect, just as long as they’re not actively pushing for the DESTRUCTION of this country.

The fact that Eric Holder still has a job on tax dollars and not being prosecuted for crimes says more about this nation than even what the Kenyan has influenced.

Actually it is legal to take both shotguns and rifles into Mexico after first having obtained permission to do so for hunting purposes only.

They used to have great dove hunting.

Not my experience. Emails do nothing. Calls get their attention. Congress has the power to get the Marine released. Cut all funding to Mexico and he’ll be home tomorrow. Keep Mexican commerce out of America and he’ll be home yesterday. O’Reilly has none of this power.

The story I heard was that it was his grandfather’s antique shotgun and he checked with the US Border Patrol on our side of the border before he crossed. They assured him it was OK.

It really sticks in my craw that we have millions of illegal Mexicans breaking our laws in plain view everyday and the Mexican government treats ONE GUY like this.

He declared his gun at the border and got permission to take it in and hundreds of Americans have done so for decades to hunt in Mexico.
