Jeff Sessions, Finally A Reasonable Adult Heading the DOJ

By: Lloyd Marcus

Folks, I gotta tell ya’. My heart leaped with joy hearing Jeff Sessions give his opening statement at his confirmation hearing for Attorney General. http://bit.ly/2jAHctn I thought, “Thank you God! Finally, an America loving adult running our DOJ. What a concept.”

First Obama gave us Eric Holder, a black AG with a chip on his shoulder against whites and America. Out-of-the-box, Holder accused Americans of being racist afraid to honestly discuss racial issues. http://bit.ly/1jpm97L To racist Leftists like Holder, an honest discussion means white America admitting they are eternal racist plotting 24/7 how to keeping people-of-color down.

Holder sued Arizona, calling them racist for seeking to enforce immigration law. http://fxn.ws/2ifnDFa He sued Texas to block their law requiring ID to vote. http://bit.ly/2j1G3dj He refused to prosecute the New Black Panthers because they’re “His people”, black like him. http://bit.ly/2j1yhA4

Talk about cojones, after Holder’s in-your-face arrogant racism, how can Democrats use drummed up claims of racism to oppose the confirmation of Sessions? Answer: The dems know they have the mainstream media securely in their pocket to promote their lies about Sessions.

After Holder, Obama gave us Loretta Lynch as AG. In response to Islamic terrorists murdering innocent Americans on US soil, Lynch immediately threatened to jail anyone speaking badly about Islam. http://bit.ly/1mxTG1G Because the Obama Administration is obsessed with allowing dudes in restrooms with little girls, the DOJ head Lynch filed a lawsuit against North Carolina for righteously saying, “No.” http://read.bi/2j1WmXC Shamefully, Obama politicized the DOJ. Lynch teamed with Obama’s adviser Al Sharpton to brand America’s police racist to justify the DOJ taking control of all police departments. http://bit.ly/1zikCIy Thus far, about 30 police departments have been taken over by the DOJ. http://n.pr/29Ikvz8

Unbelievably, Lynch seeks to prosecute/criminalize disagreeing with the Left’s narrative regarding climate change. http://bit.ly/1nAOLO5

Do you see why a common-sense thinker like Jeff Sessions as AG heading the DOJ is such a breath of fresh air?

Sessions vowed to turn back the negative undeserved branding of our brave men and women in blue.

Regarding law enforcement, Sessions said, “They are the ones on the front lines. They are better educated, trained and equipped than ever before. They are the ones who we rely on to keep our neighborhoods, and playgrounds, and schools safe. But in the last several years, law enforcement as a whole has been unfairly maligned and blamed for the actions of a few bad actors and for allegations about police that were not true. They believe the political leadership of this country abandoned them. They felt they had become targets. Morale has suffered. And last year, while under intense public criticism, the number of police officers killed in the line of duty increased ten percent over 2015. This is a wake up call. This must not continue.”

BTW, if elected, Hillary vowed to intensify Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter’s war on cops; purposely demonizing police. Thank God for Trump.

Keeping my article concise, I will not list the long list of Islamic terrorist attacks that Obama’s DOJ refused to admit were Islamic terrorist attacks. http://bit.ly/2gmreAn It was exciting hearing Sessions publicly name those seeking our demise; radical Islamic terrorists.

In recent years, our law enforcement officers also have been called upon to protect our country from the rising threat of terrorism that has reached our shores. If I am confirmed, protecting the American people from the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism will continue to be a top priority of the Department of Justice. We will work diligently to respond to threats, using all lawful means to keep the American people safe from our nation’s enemies.”

Folks, isn’t this a far cry from Obama’s DOJ refusing to name our enemies and threatening to jail anyone who speaks badly about them? Praise the Lord!

Jeff Sessions is a great pick for Attorney General, a man of character who loves God and country; committed to equal justice for all Americans. Sessions will be confirmed; another step on the yellow-brick road toward making America great again.

Ted Cruz Smacks Democrats For Hypocrisy… Defends Jeff Sessions… Laughs At Code Pink

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton | Right Wing News

You just have to love Ted Cruz’s style. During the confirmation hearing on Tuesday for Jeff Sessions, the circus came to town. It was choreographed by Medea Benjamin of Code Pink infamy. They had people there dressed as the KKK and others wearing pink tiaras. They screamed for Black Lives Matter. And Ted Cruz did exactly what he should have done as they were being escorted from the chambers… he laughed at them. This time it was send out the clowns. He also noted that free speech was a wonderful thing.

Cruz went on to say that for eight long years the left has crippled this nation by ignoring the rule of law. Jeff Sessions as attorney general will once again impose the rule of law and adhere to the Constitution. This is why the left is scared crapless over him being confirmed. But they can’t stop it… Sessions will become attorney general and then go after illegal immigrants, refugees, radicals and criminals who had a free ticket during Obama’s reign. The party is over for this scum and they wail like a bunch of demons who know their hour is at hand.

From Western Journalism:

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, hammered Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday for their vigorous assault of attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions, under the auspices of a reverence for the rule of law, when considered in light of their silence as the Obama administration carried out years of lawless deeds.

But first, he had to deal with protesters who interrupted the Sessions confirmation hearing with shouts of “Jeff Sessions, you are a racist!” and “Black lives matter!”

After Capitol Police escorted them from the room, Cruz remarked that “free speech is a wonderful thing,” before getting to the matter at hand.

“This has been an interesting day at this hearing listening to Democratic senator after Democratic senator give speeches and praise of the rule of law. And I am encouraged by that, because for eight years it has been absent,” Cruz began his questioning.

“For eight years we’ve seen a Department of Justice consistently disregarding the rule of law,” he continued.

Cruz recited a whole list of lawlessness by the Obama administration and the Department of Justice. His indictment of the Democrats was nothing less than impressive: “When Eric Holder’s Department of Justice allowed illegal gun transactions, illegally sold guns to Mexican gun traffickers, as part of Fast and Furious — guns that were later used to murder Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry — the Democratic members of this committee were silent.”

“When Eric Holder was found in contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate with Congress’ investigation into Fast and Furious, once again the Democrats on this committee were silent,” he continued. And they were… over and over and over again. “When the IRS illegally targeted United States citizens for exercising their First Amendment views, for exercising their roles in the political process, Democratic members of this committee were silent,” Cruz said. Instead the DOJ refused to prosecute the matter and turned it over to a major donor of Barack Obama’s. Talk about corruption.

And Cruz was far from done… he made a laundry list of corruption, including Operation Choke Point, sanctuary cities, the Obama administration’s release of tens of thousands of criminal illegal aliens whose past offenses included rape and murder, the paying of nearly $2 billion in ransom to Iran for American hostages, the numerous changes to provisions of Obamacare without congressional approval, and the recess appointments by the president, which the Supreme Court later ruled, unanimously, were unconstitutional.

Cruz is now celebrating that with the confirmation of Sessions, the rule of law will once again be in play. And adding to the misery of the left and the shredding of Obama’s legacy, Cruz will reintroduce today the bill to fully repeal Obamacare.

Finally, Cruz pointed out that if we played the same game the Dems did, when Sessions is confirmed, he could do exactly what the Democrats did to us… “Now, if we were to play a game of tit-for-tat, if what was good for the goose was good for the gander, then a Republican attorney general should be equally partisan; equally disregard the law; should advance political preferences favored by the Republican Party,” he said. He asked Sessions what a Republican attorney general should do and Sessions said that he would do the opposite of partisan rule… he would observe the Constitution and the rule of law. And that is why Jeff Sessions needs to be attorney general. Cruz’s presentation, case and closing were a slam dunk… that’s how you do it folks.

Who Was Behind CNN’s “Fake News” on Trump?

By: Cliff Kincaid | Accuracy in Media

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s January 3 show, “Let me tell you, you take on the Intelligence Community, they have six ways from Sunday to get back at you. So even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he is being really dumb to do this.” He was referring to President-elect Donald J. Trump’s criticism of the Intelligence Community. Asked what the Intelligence Community could or would do to Trump, Schumer said, “I don’t know.  From what I am told, they are very upset with how he has treated them and talked about them.”

On Tuesday, January 10, we saw the response. It was obvious, based on what this top Senate Democrat had said, that the CIA used CNN to air unsubstantiated charges against Trump. CNN didn’t delineate the bizarre sexual nature of those charges; that was left to a left-wing “news” organization by the name of BuzzFeed, which posted 35 pages of scurrilous lies and defamation.

Demonstrating the sad state of ethical standards at CNN, Wolf Blitzer hyped the story into “breaking news,” when the allegations had been circulating for months, and Jake Tapper was brought on the air, “joining me with a major story we’re following right now.” Blitzer emphasized, “We’re breaking this story.” It was the beginning of CNN regurgitating what President-elect Trump called “fake news.”

What followed was a low point in Tapper’s career, as he willingly participated in a ginned-up controversy using anonymous sources to report on “information” about Trump that started falling apart shortly after CNN aired its “breaking news.”

“That’s right, Wolf, a CNN exclusive,” said Tapper, apparently unaware that he was recycling a document that had been passed around for months. It was CNN, which uses former CIA official Michael Morell as an on-air contributor, that ran with it. Morell has worked for Beacon Global Strategies, a firm founded by former Hillary Clinton aide Philippe Reines, since November 2013.

Trying to distance himself from the controversy, Morell went on CNN to refer to some of the information as “unverified” in the “private document.”

But the damage had already been done, and Morell knew it. CNN had manufactured a controversy over Trump yet again, demonstrating the truth of Schumer’s statement that the intelligence community would get back at Trump.

Ironically, CNN is a “partner” in an effort known as the First Draft Coalition that is dedicated “to improving practices in the ethical sourcing, verification and reporting of stories that emerge online.”

“CNN has learned that the nation’s top intelligence officials gave information to President-elect Donald Trump and President Barack Obama last week about claims of Russian efforts to compromise President-elect Trump,” said Tapper. “The information was provided as part of last week’s classified intelligence briefings regarding Russian efforts to undermine the 2016 U.S. elections.”

Trying to pump up the “claims,” Jim Sciutto, Chief National Security Correspondent for CNN, said, “To be clear, this has been an enormous team effort by my colleagues here and others at CNN.” A team effort to verify what? It looks like they were handed a 35-page document from the CIA and decided to publicize it. They failed to reveal the details precisely because they could not verify the document.

Sciutto said, “Multiple U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN that classified documents on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election presented last week to President Obama and to President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claimed to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump.”

Tapper brought in “the legendary Carl Bernstein”—a former reporter for The Washington Post who covered the Watergate scandal—who referred to:

  • A former British MI6 intelligence agent (anonymous).
  • A Washington political opposition research firm (anonymous) that was hired by clients (anonymous) who were opposed to Donald Trump’s candidacy in both the Republican and Democratic parties.
  • Washington researchers (anonymous) who had come across business ties of Trump in Russia with Russians (anonymous) that looked questionable to them. They (anonymous) wanted to develop the information further. They (anonymous) hired the former MI6 agent (anonymous) who they knew and had done previous business with.
  • “He [anonymous] began talking to Russian sources [anonymous] from his days in Russia and uncovered this information that’s now being considered by the American intelligence community.” (emphasis added).

So one of the Watergate reporters from The Washington Post had put his stamp of approval on the document by saying it was information that had been “uncovered,” rather than being made up. How did he know one way or the other? The answer is he didn’t.

Later, Tapper said the charges were “uncorroborated as of now,” indicating that they might be confirmed by somebody at some time in the future. There was “no proof” of the claims but “confidence by intelligence officials that the Russians are claiming this.” Again, no names were provided.

However, Bernstein came back to say that “this former MI6 intelligence agent with great experience in Russia and the former Soviet Union [anonymous], is known to have terrific sources of information [anonymous], has a track record with the United States in coordinating with United States intelligence agencies.”

He has “a track record with the United States in coordinating with United States intelligence agencies.” What exactly does this mean?

CNN was reporting “news,” since a two-page CIA summary of this dirt was attached to a classified CIA report on Russian hacking and election influence that was given to Trump last Friday, January 6. But it was “fake” in the sense that CNN had no way of knowing if the charges had been completely made up.

On this basis, the story could and should have turned against the Intelligence Community, with reporters asking why unverified information had been used against Trump and whether this was retaliation for his criticism. But this course of action by CNN would make it impossible for CNN reporters to go back to these same sources for scurrilous information and false charges in the future. This fact makes it abundantly clear that the news organization was being used by anonymous sources in the Intelligence Community, most likely the CIA.

Since CNN likes anonymous sources, I will use one of my own. “This is a classic CIA blackmail operation where the CIA under Director John Brennan uses someone else’s dirt for the blackmail, and postures themselves as ‘innocent’ in presenting it to Trump,” one observer of the Intelligence Community told me. This is certainly the real story—that an intelligence agency run by Obama’s CIA director would use an American television network to attack the President-elect with scurrilous and unsubstantiated charges.

This is how the Intelligence Community, in Schumer’s words, got back at Trump.

Is America a constitutional republic ruled by the people through their elected representatives? Or do the intelligence agencies rule America and try to blackmail our leaders?

The President-elect said it would be “a tremendous blot” on the record of the Intelligence Community if they did in fact release the document to the media. At another point, he said, “I think it was disgraceful, disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned out to be so false” get released in that fashion to CNN and BuzzFeed.

CNN is “fake news,” Trump said, and BuzzFeed “is a failing pile of garbage.”

BuzzFeed is being kept alive by the giant media company Comcast, which recently invested $200 million in the “left-wing blog,” as incoming White House press secretary and Trump communications director Sean Spicer called it.

It was Comcast that figured in Trump adviser Peter Navarro’s campaign statement about the need to break up “the new media conglomerate oligopolies.”

Navarro declared that media conglomerates were “destroying an American democracy that depends on a free flow of information and freedom of thought,” adding, “Donald Trump will drain the swamp of corruption and collusion, standing against this trend and standing for the American people.”

The American Left: We Hope He Fails!

By: Lloyd Marcus

Watching video on her phone, my wife Mary laughed hysterically at ridiculous answers to man-on-the-street questions. The young interviewees knew everything about the cast of Jersey Shore. They were clueless about who won the Civil War; who is our Vice President and who we fought to gain our independence.

I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Clearly, Leftists controlling America’s public education has successfully dumb-down our youths. America history, reading, writing and arithmetic have been placed on the back burner. First and foremost is teaching LGBT indoctrination http://bit.ly/2fss53D, how America is destroying the planet and hating ones self for their white privilege. Another top priority is teaching that Republicans are racist, sexist and homophobic.

Now that the Left has created millions of brain-dead zombies incapable of reasoning or thinking for themselves, the Left can be hypocritical with impunity, knowing their followers will consume whatever excrement they feed them.

For example: Remember how the Left (Democrats, Hollywood and mainstream media) went nuts when Rush Limbaugh said he hoped Obama failed? Rush explained that he hoped Obama’s illegal fundamental transformation of America failed. http://bit.ly/2iWB5ig Despite the scumbag mainstream media knowing exactly what Rush meant, they spun it to brand Rush a racist. Democrat operatives masquerading as media shoved microphones into the faces of Republicans, demanding that they denounce Rush, a flaming racist. At the WH Correspondents’ dinner, actress Wanda Sykes accused Rush of treason and said she hoped Rush’s kidneys failed. Obama laughed. http://bit.ly/2i5CazR

Spineless Republicans criticized and distanced themselves from Rush. Still, the Rush-ster hung tough; standing by his comment. I love that folks. I am so sick of our side allowing our evil shamelessly hypocritical enemies to dictate what we can and cannot say.

The Left’s national narrative was it is unpatriotic and racist, bordering on criminal to say you hoped Obama failed. Then, We the people elected Donald Trump. And look how the Left is responding. I am talking hypocrisy on steroids.

Here are just a few examples of the Left, in essence, saying they not only hope, but intend to do everything in their power to ensure that Trump fails.

Enraged Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters passionately proclaimed, “I will Not work with him! I will fight him every inch of the way!” http://nws.mx/2hKwrQB

Senate Democrats vow to block Trump’s SCOTUS nominees. http://bit.ly/2jhPjHg

Democrats vow to block eight of Trump’s generals. http://bit.ly/2iRXk8S

Democrats have targeted for destruction and vow to block eight of Trump’s cabinet picks. http://wapo.st/2hHvyLg

The Left is using social media to block Trump with #NotMyPresident, #TheResistance and so on. http://bit.ly/2i5IvLM

Democrats that run sanctuary cites which illegally roll-out-the-red-carpet to illegal aliens vow to block Trump from enforcing immigration laws. http://fxn.ws/2fZ3wbB

Hollywood elitists had the audacity to demand that congress block everything we elected Trump to do. http://bit.ly/2i3zd7M

In an outrageous unprecedented attempt to thwart the will of voters, the Left tried to overturn the 2016 presidential election. Hillary’s minions demanded recounts that failed. Incredibly, Hillary’s hit squad even tried to bully electors of states Trump won to not cast their state’s vote for Trump. http://bit.ly/2g5uPS4

Obama will be the first former US president to stay in Washington DC to actively pursue the failure of the incoming Administration. http://bit.ly/2iXttft

For 8 years, the Left said opposing anything our American president wanted to do was racist, unpatriotic and treasonous. The Left knows they can get away with such blatant hypocrisy because they have successfully dumb down millions; created meat-heads who hold TMZ in higher regard than the US Constitution.

Implementing the Left’s socialist/progressive agenda trumps everything. Insidiously, Leftist educators purposely dumb down our kids to create an army of Leftist zombies; students clueless regarding their constitutional rights who reject the principles and values of their parents.

Thomas Jefferson wrote: “An educated citizenry is a vital requisite for our survival as a free people.”

Thus, by the Left creating dumb citizens, the Left is free to repeal our freedoms at will; forcing their anti-America, anti-God and anti-freedom agenda down our throats unopposed.

Foaming-at-the-mouth with outrage, the Left launched a frenzied assault to destroy Rush for saying he hoped Obama’s anti-America illegal agenda failed. Now, those same Leftists are claiming moral high ground trying to block while boldly hoping for the death of our president Trump. http://bit.ly/2iu6UMo

These evil arrogant hypocrites are totally unworthy of our respect.
