Awesome:

FOX NEWS – Jon Hammar, the U.S. Marine imprisoned in Mexico on a gun charge, will be released today, his mother told Fox News Radio.

Olivia Hammar said the judge hearing Hammar’s case issued a ruling in his favor and that her son is to be released at a time on Friday yet to be announced. No more details were available. Hammar, 27, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, has been stuck in a notorious, drug cartel-controlled prison just 15 miles south of the U.S. border since Aug. 13, after he crossed into Mexico and declared an antique shotgun to Mexican customs officials.

News of his pending release came just a day after a letter surfaced from Mexico’s ambassador to the U.S. that insisted Hammar’s case would go to trial.

“This circumstance requires that he remain under detention during the duration of his trial,” Arturo Sarukhan said in the letter.

    I won’t be relieved for him until he sets foot on U.S. soil. They can still change their minds, or overrule the judge.

    • http://www.facebook.com/buttonmelip Cheryl Palinista Arledge

      I agree JeffWRidge. The man did nothing wrong, he needs to be allowed to come home NOW.

  • tinlizzieowner

    The media ‘hype’ (mostly on Fox News) and the threat to Mexico’s tourist trade is what caused this. A Mexican judge could have released him in August. Wonder how long it’s going to be before Barry tries to take credit for it.

    • colliemum

      That will be within one minute after Jon Hammar has stepped on US soil.

      • tinlizzieowner

        I can almost guarantee that Barry will have something to say about ‘the government’ was working behind the scenes in this all along. Even though he wouldn’t come out and comment about the injustice of this in the first place, for 3 months.

          You should get on Twitter, it can be a pain in the neck to use at times, but it’s also a good source of breaking news and I get links to news articles I might otherwise miss. It’s worth checking out anyway. :-) Happy Christmas my friend!

        • colliemum

          I second/third Wolfie and Orangeone: you can use twitter/get a twitter account from your PC, and then use your PC for tweets: much easier than using a cell phone!

          One other reason it is very useful is that one can get tweets from e.g. people standing up against Morsi in Egypt, or from Israel, all stuff which never makes it to the MSM, and all being tweeted right when it is happening.

          • http://tinyurl.com/wwsotu Wolfie

            All true and seconded! I use twitter exclusively on my PC.

          • tinlizzieowner

            I’m just too old (and disinterested) to get involved in twitter. I can barely operate the blackberry my daughter gave me. Sitting here at my desk top with my coffee and cigars, (and a cat in my face) is just fine for me. :-)

            • colliemum

              I’ll say nothing at all about having a cat in one’s face … LOL!
              But you really can do twitter from your PC – I do that, because I loathe cell phones and only have an old one in case of emergencies, which is otherwise useless.

              • tinlizzieowner

                That’s all I had until my daughter insisted I at least try to join the 20th century and gave me her ‘old’ blackberry because she has one of these gadgets that talks to her, now. You’d think she was a teenager but she’s in her early 40’s. She’s a 21’st century woman. She was involved in a minor traffic accident, what’s the first thing she does? posts pictures of it on facebook, then calls daddy, then calls the law. Sometimes I have to wonder if she really is a successful businesswoman with a degree in ‘Information Services’.

    • Betsey_Ross

      We have several friends and relatives that go to Mexico during the holiday season. None have gone for mostly financial reasons since 2008. By now a couple of them are not going because they don’t feel safe there. Back in 08 that feeling was there, but it was warm and at that point the resorts were safe, but none of them felt safe off the restort. No reason to go there at all anymore. Taking a vacation and being confined to the resort just doesn’t cut it. Heck you could go to Gitmo and have the same experience. No thanks.

      • tinlizzieowner

        I’m a former Californian. I could never think of a good reason to go to Mexico, even though Tijuana had some of the best upholstery shops for custom cars, it just wasn’t the kind of place you wanted to be ‘caught’ in. Things have become much worse since the ‘Surfin USA’ 60’s.

        • poljunkie

          We used to go—20 years ago. But not any more. Too risky. Its too bad. So convenient. Much less expensive, and some really nice places.

          ….And a built in “diet” plan on the way home. (but you have to drink water from the water fountain at the airport)

    That is great news!!! I had e-mailed my congressmen when I heard Brian Kilmeade on Fox report the story, I hope tens of thousands of Americans may have made even the smallest of effort to secure his release.

    • Orangeone

      You are correct and I think it was hundreds of thousands of Americans (primarily our veterans), Fox, West, Levin and all the others that stepped up for this courageous man.

          If he isn’t released now, the Mexican government knows there’s going to be hell to pay. Barry could have ‘suggested’ that to them months ago if Valerie Jarrett had told him he has a spine.

    After not speaking out in Public about the tragedy I am sure that Obama will now take full credit for his release.

    • elbee2012

      And what if he had spoken, or acted? You’d probably still be deriding him, even though Jon Hammar’s mother and buddy were begging Obama to get him out of his pickle.

      The Warren Zevon song isn’t “Send lawyers, guns and money… and the President of the United States.” I know a handful of people myself who’ve found themselves locked up in Mexican prisons, sometimes for completely fabricated offenses. They knew how corrupt the Mexican authorities are when they crossed the border. And they all took their medicine, faced a judge or paid a bribe to the Federales. Not a single one cried for POTUS to come save him.

                Its so funny, I’m friends with a gal that works at our local market and when I run into her, she always gives me the low down on “who” was in.

                Shes always; oh my gosh, oh my gosh: guess who was here? Nicholas Cage!!!! Michael Moore!!! Curt Shilling….Brad Paisley….She’ll say, I had to run to the break room to get my phone, so I could take a photo.

                I’ll be thinking why?

                When she said Michael Moore, I said- you took your photo with Michael Moore?
                (Shes more conservative than I am) She said, yes, I used it as one of the photos on my family Christmas cards.

                I might have said hi to Brad Paisely but I probably wouldn’t have even recoginized him.

                  Well, I probably would have to ‘trot through dung’ to meet him, when you consider he’s usually surrounded by liberal protesters.

                  Too true lol. But, I’d be wading through it right along side if I could! :-D

            Very true and I think his mom will give Barky Boy a verbal dressing down that the MSM could never cover (not like they would) because it would be a series of beep, beep…beep, beep, beep….

              As military or ex-military, If he were to just ‘respectfully decline’ to meet his Commander in Chief, those 2 words would say all that needs to be said.

                Kinda like CrumbandGetIt did to Joe Biden during the campaigning! Their biz is booming and they’ve expanded to include nationwide shipping :)

          wouldn’t it be funny if he “politely” declined?

    How long do you think it will take for Obama or her Thighness Clinton to get in front of this and take credit? I say twenty minutes.

        Yeah… I got a bad concussion a few weeks ago and I was fine after a couple of days. I slipped on the driveway, hit my head, knocked out, bad bruise, new scar, headaches, feeling queezy… For a few days I thought I had trouble finding the right words or getting them in the right order… But then better I got that after! ;-)

    This is fantastic news! But I will not be comfortable until he is on US soil! No Thanks to Obama or Hilary Clinton!

  • Philo Beddoe

    There will be fanfare when he comes home, watch the announcements from Washington.

    The release will be used to cover another oppressive policy being proposed

  • Sober_Thinking

    Thank God!

    Mexico IS corrupt. While I’m glad there was some internal pressure exerted by Mexican businessmen… this was a corrupt travesty from the beginning.

    I hear that Duncan Hunter has been all over this issue trying to get this Marine released. If so, kudos to him.

    • http://www.nleomf.org/officers/ FlatFoot

      Affirmative.

      Duncan Hunter Jr. is my Congressman. I live in his district in San Diego. We also happen to be friends with his family. In fact, we’ve been friends with his family since Duncan Jr was in middle school.

      Duncan Hunter (both Jr and Sr) has been all over this epically asinine situation from the beginning — literally day & night — putting just about everything else he has cookin’ on the back burners until this is resolved.

  • CG patriot

    This is wonderful news. It’s my understanding that there were private citizens in Mexico who were behind this movement to return US Marine Jon Hammar. That in it’s-self helps restores some of my faith in humanity. For even in a third world country such as “Mexico” there is also hope. As for our esteemed POTUS: and I use that term loosely’ this captivity should have never come to this and for any of our citizen’s who are being held captive foreign or domestic.

    Shame-on this administration and God help us America.

    I’m happy for Mr. Hammar and his family. No doubt a very Merry Christmas gift to them and to all their prayer’s that have been answered.


    as a side note, and once again, we need to ready our-self’s for the fake and pompous PR in regards to Mr. Hammar’s return. ~Let there be no-doubt~ that President Narcissist will be front and center and that he deserve’s all credit and any accolades in regards to Mr. Hammar’s safe return.

    I thought for awhile I was gonna have to get some vets together and go down to the local Mexican consulate and burn their damn flag or something. I think it is no thanks to Obama either, if he is released. It is because of threats to their piss poor economy.

    For Caucasian Americans jailed in Mexico’s jails and prisons — it is truly the stuff of nightmares.

    Don’t get your hopes up too much.

    Mexico’s notorious for announcing the ‘releasing’ of jailed Americans only to renege on their ‘assurance’ and they’ll delay releases for weeks — or even months — then they blame it on their judges and courts. The fact of the matter is though — a ‘ransom’ must be paid in every and all scenarios involving imprisoned Americans be it a legitimate arrest or not. ‘Not’ way way more often being the case.

    Although in this case — as in very few other cases in recent memory — it may be high profile enough that they’ll keep their word.

    I know. I live in San Diego and it happened to me personally once after years and years of going to Mexico with zero problems or issues down there. I’ve never set foot in Mexico since — and I never will again.

    • CG patriot

      Flatfoot, you are correct with what you have shared. In Mexico everything has a price on-it. Mexico is all about extortion, and gaming off American’s is nothing knew. You right about this case being high profiled. Never enter a country and think because we are American’s, that fact automatically makes us safe…..? nothing can be further from the truth. The mere fact a person/ or person’s from America makes us their number one target. It’s all about money.

      Oh you can bet that there’s some ‘Mordida’ rapped up in this release somewhere.
      ‘Mordida’ (the bite, in English) is a Spanish slang word for bribery.

    I’ll feel better once he’s back safely on US soil. I don’t trust the Mexicans as far as I can spit, and that ain’t far.

    Love that curmudgeon, Billy O’Reilly …a fine BROTH of a Fox Cable lad..and let’s not forget his enablers, Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes.
    stepping in for the Two AWOL, “Kraven Kreeps,” hiding – in – the- hinterlands”eg:
    Hillary: the 2016 candidate for any of the following: President; Ambassador to Benghazi; Queen; or, restoration to the Staff of the Nixon Watergate cmte. from which she was fired for various nefarious contretemps; and

    Barry, “Br’er Rabbit” Obama: that matinee Idol of the 99%; architect of many mansions of revolutionary endeavor and obviously too preoccupied with his current commission to unchain an ex GI (only a marine corporal) for fear Mexico might shut off the Niagara of northbound illegals needed to collapse the tents of the stateside bourgeoisie…. and eventuate a final transition to a, “Banana Republic”, electorate.
    Third term? Bet he retains Hugo Chavez as consultant-in-chief.

    Thank you for your service Jon Hammar.

    Great news. He’ll have a nice Christmas.
    Now I’d like to know WHEN Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl — a POW in Afghanistan since Memoiral day 2009 is coming home.

  • Orangeone

    Great tweeted a little over a half hour ago that Jon Hammar has been released from the Mexican jail. I’ll try and monitor for updates and post back on this thread.

    That was quick. She just tweeted that Jon Hammar’s attorney just called her and he is in the UNITED STATES
