Sessions Defends His Honor…”YUGELY”

The elites have become international, and they’ve ceased to have a primary loyalty to the nation-state. – Jeff Sessions

Foxnews.com reports that

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in dramatic Senate testimony, on Tuesday decried suggestions he colluded with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign as an “appalling and detestable lie” — while staunchly defending his role in the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. 
 
“I have never met with or had any conversations with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election,” Sessions told the Senate Intelligence Committee. “I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign.” 

The attorney general addressed the same Senate panel that heard last week from Comey, becoming the highest-ranking official to testify in the Russia investigation. 

Democrats used the forum to pepper Sessions with tough questions, at times accusing him of “stonewalling” and impeding the congressional probe.

The normally reserved Sessions showed his feisty side in response, pushing back on what he called the “secret innuendo” being leaked about his contact with Russians and challenging portions of Comey’s testimony. 

In a fiery opening statement, Sessions specifically contradicted Comey’s claims that he remained silent when the former FBI director expressed his concerns over a meeting with President Trump.

“I responded to his comment by agreeing that the FBI and Department of Justice needed to be careful to follow Department policies regarding appropriate contacts with the White House,” Sessions said, adding he was confident that Comey understood the rules on communicating with the White House about ongoing investigations.

Sessions had earlier recused himself from all matters relating to the Russia investigation after it was reported he had failed to disclose two meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Oregon Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden asked Sessions about conflicting accounts rising from Comey’s testimony and claims that there was something “problematic” about Sessions’ role before his recusal.

Asked what issues might be problematic, Sessions raised his voice: “Why don’t you tell me? There are none, Senator Wyden, there are none … This is a secret innuendo being leaked out there about me, and I don’t appreciate it.” 

Democrats appeared to be looking for evidence that Sessions’ contact with Russian officials was more significant than previously thought. Sessions has said neither of the two disclosed encounters had anything to with the Trump campaign in 2016 and that the meetings took place in his role as a lawmaker.

Sessions flatly denied a third meeting with the Russian liaison at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington during a campaign event in April.

“I did not have any private meetings nor do I recall any conversations with any Russian officials at the Mayflower Hotel,” he said. “I did not attend any meetings at that event. Prior to the speech, I attended a reception with my staff that included at least two dozen people and President Trump. Though I do recall several conversations I had during that pre-speech reception, I do not have any recollection of meeting or talking to the Russian ambassador or any other Russian officials.”

Tuesday was Sessions’ first time in the witness seat since his confirmation hearing in February.

Sessions’ testimony came on the heels of Comey’s explosive testimony last week on Russia’s medding in U.S. elections and allegations that Trump tried to kill a related investigation. 

During Comey’s hearing, he hinted at Sessions’ role in the controversy.

“We were also aware of facts that I cannot discuss in an open setting that would make his continued engagement in a Russia investigation problematic,” Comey said. 

The Justice Department and Sessions himself have pushed back on such suggestions. Sessions also has faced questions from Democrats about why he was involved in recommending Comey’s firing even after he recused himself from the Russia investigation. However, Sessions said Tuesday he had a duty to oversee the Justice Department and FBI, and a “fresh start” was needed at the FBI.  

He also said he has the right to defend himself. 

“I recused myself from any investigation into the campaign for president. I did not recuse myself from defending my honor against scurrilous and false allegations,” he said. 

Unlike Comey, who bluntly said he tried to avoid one-on-one encounters with Trump and began documenting their interactions, Sessions is a staunch supporter of the president.

Sessions was one of the first members of Congress to endorse Trump and was then-candidate Trump’s adviser on almost every major decision and policy proposal pushed on the campaign trail.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio asked Sessions whether Trump had recorded conversations he had in the White House with Comey – something Trump hinted he had done then walked back.

Comey said last week that he hopes there are tapes and encouraged the White House to release them.

“I do not [know],” Sessions said when asked whether he knows whether the president records his conversations.

Comey had also said that Sessions had lingered in the Oval Office following a group meeting, just before the private encounter during which Comey has said Trump asked him to pull back on his investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. As Trump tried to shoo everyone out to talk alone with Comey, Sessions lingered, in Comey’s account. Comey suggested this indicated the attorney general’s awareness that it was improper for Trump and Comey to meet alone together, given the specter of the Department of Justice’s investigation into Russia’s election meddling and possible ties with the Trump campaign.

But Sessions disputed that was why he lingered, suggesting there was really nothing to it.

“I do recall being one of the last ones to leave, I don’t know how that occurred,” Sessions said. “I eventually left.”

Boys and Girls, if you were watching AG Sessions testify yesterday, you were watching an honorable man of conviction.

The Liberal Democrats just cannot come to grips that their “perfect” candidate was, in fact, a lousy pick and a hateful, inept, downright mean individual whom they never should have nominated as their Presidential Choice. And so, the Democrats have taken a crooked little fantasy, conceived by two crooked little politicians named Hillary Clinton and John Podesta on the night that the latter was beaten by Donald J. Trump for the Presidency of the United States of America.

Six months later, having come up empty in their Quixotic Quests to find proof to back up their blatant lie that President Trump “colluded” with the Russians, they decided to attempt to break Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a Senate Hearing.

The best laid plans of mice and men oft’ times go awry. – Robert Burns

I suppose that the Democrat Senators believed that their “superior intellects” would tear ol’ Jeff Apart.

Instead it was they who got torn…a new one.

Unlike the sniveling 6’7′ Former FBI Director and Political Weasel who testified recently, AG Sessions stood his ground and showed the Democrat Senators what a man of honor does when his integrity is called into question:

HE FIGHTS!

AG Sessions literally left those seeking to get down and wallow in the mud that is the made-up story of Russian Collusion high and dry.

Which led amateur Political Pundits on Facebook Political Pages yesterday to start claiming that the Attorney General of the United States of America suffers from the early stages of dementia…a charge which the sniveling little cowards living in their Moms’ Basements would not dare repeat to his face.

The Democrat Party and all of their minions in the MSM and their cadre of trolls, paid and unpaid, lurking under the bridges of Facebook Political Pages are now being driven beyond desperation in their Quixotic Quest to somehow rid themselves of an American President who is in the process of doing exactly what he promised to do if elected President.

He is systematically not only destroying Obama’s Legacy, he is also getting bills passed right and left which deal with Obama’s stagnant economy and his horrible (and quite possibly, intentional) mismanagement of the Veterans Administration.

While the Democrats, their Propaganda Arm, the MSM, and their Social Media/Justice “Warriors” are so focused on trying to somehow remove the 45th President from office, Trump is steadily doing what we elected his for.

And as far as Sessions’ day in the spotlight is concerned…

Well done, Mr. Attorney General.

As we say in Dixie,

You told them the way the cow ate the cabbage…and came out smelling like a rose.

While the Democrats stunk up the place.

AG Sessions Reverses Obama’s Failed “Smart on Crime” Drug Sentencing Policy. ACLU Cries “Raaaciiist”!

May 13, 2017

170302-jeff-sessions-presser-413p_17ef9f5553089c58647f05e526fb77d5.nbcnews-ux-2880-1000

“Don’t do the crime, if you can’t do the time,  Yeah, don’t do it.” – Sammy Davis, Jr., “The Theme From Baretta”

Foxnews.com reports that

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Friday that he has told prosecutors to pursue the most serious charges possible against criminal suspects – a stunning reversal of Obama-era policies, and a move that infuriated civil rights groups.

“We will enforce the laws passed by Congress pure and simple,” he said at an awards ceremony in Washington D.C, adding that prosecutors deserved to be “unhandcuffed and not micro-managed from Washington.”

“This is a key part of President Trump’s promise to keep America safe,” Sessions said. “We’re seeing an increase in violent crime in our cities – in Baltimore, Chicago, Memphis, Milwaukee, St. Louis and many others.  The murder rate has surged 10 percent nationwide – the largest increase since 1968.”

In a letter to 94 U.S. attorneys Thursday night, Sessions called it a “core principle” that prosecutors charge and pursue “the most serious and readily provable offense.” Sessions defined the most serious offenses as those that carry the most substantial guidelines sentence.

Sessions noted that “there will be circumstances in which good judgment would lead a prosecutor to conclude that a strict application” of the policy is not warranted, but that any exceptions must first be approved by a U.S. attorney, assistant attorney general, or a designated supervisor.

The move, which will send more criminals to jail and for longer terms by triggering mandatory minimum sentences, explicitly reverses policies set in motion by President Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder – who implemented the “Smart on Crime” drug sentencing policy that focused on not incarcerating people who committed low level, non-violent crimes. DOJ officials call it a “false narrative” and say unless a gun is involved, most of those cases aren’t charged period.

Officials say Holder’s “Smart on Crime” policy “convoluted the process,” and left prosecutors applying the law unevenly, which they said “is not Justice.”

But civil rights groups blasted the process, with the American Civil Liberties Union describing the move as a move that will “reverse progress” and repeat the War on Drugs, which it called a “failed experiment.”

“With overall crime rates at historic lows, it is clear that this type of one-dimensional criminal justice system that directs prosecutors to give unnecessarily long and unfairly harsh sentences to people whose behavior does not call for it did not work,” Udi Ofer, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Campaign for Smart Justice.

The policy was also criticized by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who said mandatory minimums have “unfairly and disproportionately incarcerated too many minorities for too long.”

“Attorney General Sessions new policy will accentuate that injustice. Instead we should treat our nation’s drug epidemic as a health crisis and less as a lock ‘em up and throw away the key problem,” he said.

However, the National Association of Assistant United States Attorneys backed the move, saying it would make the public safer and give prosecutors to “tools that Congress intended” to lock up drug dealers and dismantle gangs.

Is it just me, gentle reader, or do you also remember that Barack Hussein Obama was supposed to be the “First Post-Racial President”?

That was certainly not the reality of his eight year long tenure.

The moment Obama got into office, all average Americans heard from him was the Rhetoric of Racial Division and Class Warfare.

It reminded me of all the historical conflicts which I used to read about, during the course in college which I took, titled “The Rhetoric of Social Protest“.

Karl Marx knew long ago that all you needed to do to touch the heart of the common man was to convince him of a shared struggle.

Vladimir Lenin took this a step further, by using the concept of a shared struggle to convince the Bolsheviks to help him overthrow the Czar of Russia and murder him and his family during the Russian Revolution.

Forgive me for stating the obvious, but fiery rhetoric spoken by a national leader and his “New Bolsheviks” has consequences.

President Barack Hussein Obama is as responsible for what happened in Ferguson, New York, Baltimore, and is still happening in cities across America,  as any thug wannabe in those cities.

However, he is not alone in his responsibility.

Also responsible are the black political leaders, who make their living and get their 15 minutes of fame by exacerbating racially-divided situations. Their silence speaks volumes.

For example, by the Mayor of Baltimore, purposely giving carte blanche to the rioters to destroy her city by ordering the police to stand down, she, like the Roman Emperor Nero, lit the match that set her kingdom ablaze.

If Black Lives truly do matter (and, make no mistake, they do), it is the black community who are going to have to save themselves.

With a nationwide illegitimate birth rate of 74%, black Americans, with help from Uncle Sugar, have succeeded in tearing apart the very thing that kept them safe and strong for decades: the Black Family Unit.

Until that Sacred Foundation, which taught individual responsibility to generations of black Americans, is restored, the violence, crime, and disrespect for others will continue.

I remember, as a 9 year old in Memphis, Tennessee, watching my parents’ black and white television as the National Guard was called into action on the night that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated.

I remember after that Civil Defense Announcement that President Lyndon Johnson come on national television to make the announcement of Dr. King’s death. I remember a feeling of helplessness and of fear, as a nine-year-old, that I had not felt before.

It wasn’t just the fact that we were living in Midtown Memphis, that made me afraid.

It wasn’t just the fact of the out-of-control violence itself, that caused my consternation.

It was watching my beloved Hometown on the verge of going up in flames.

And now, all these years later, Memphis is the one of the Most Dangerous Cities in America, as ranked by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and has borne witness to 73 homicides so far the year, the overwhelming majority of which were black Memphians killing one another.

Words can hurt or words can heal.

A President who was supposed to bridge the Racial Divide in this nation…instead, widened it to the point of possibly creating an unbridgeable chasm of racial animus.

And, with every divisive word he and the political activists whom he championed still speak, the chasm of Racial Divisiveness, which has created this gaping hole in the fabric of American Society, grows wider.

Words mean things.

And to say that enforcing our nation’s laws is an act of discrimination, is to create and encourage a self-fulfilling prophecy of limiting future generations of young black men and women’s confidence in themselves and their ability to rise above their circumstances, as others have, and to live the American Dream as others before them have…not by pushing drugs or robbing Little Caesar’s Pizza Parlors, but by becoming the next Dr. Ben Carson or Dr. Alveda King or Condoleeza Rice.

For as President Ronald Wilson Reagan reminded my generation,

There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.

AG Jeff Sessions Vows to Enforce Our Immigration Laws: “This is a New Era. This is The Trump Era.”

April 12, 2017

15-12-10-la-bestia

“We have to listen to the concerns that working people have over the record pace of immigration and its impact on their jobs, wages, housing, schools, tax bills, and living conditions. These are valid concerns, expressed by decent and patriotic citizens from all backgrounds.

“We also have to be honest about the fact that not everyone who seeks to join our country will be able to successfully assimilate. It is our right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish here.” – Donald J. Trump, August 31, 2016

Foxnews.com reported yesterday that

Attorney General Jeff Sessions called Tuesday for a new focus on immigration enforcement during his first visit as the nation’s top law enforcement officer to the U.S.-Mexico border, vowing to confront the gangs and cartels plaguing the region and declaring: “This is a new era, this is the Trump era.”

Sessions met with law enforcement, members of the military and border agents in Nogales, Ariz., urging their confidence in the administration as they push to implement policies boosting agents working to secure the southern border. The tone of his comments at times echoed the explicit rhetoric President Trump himself used when discussing illegal immigration and cartels during the campaign.

“When we talk about MS-13 and the cartels, what do we mean? We mean international criminal organizations that turn cities and suburbs into warzones, that rape and kill innocent civilians, and who profit by smuggling poison and other human beings across our borders,” Sessions said.

“… It is here on this very sliver of land—on this border—that we take our stand. It is a direct threat to our legal system, peace and prosperity,” he said.

Timed with his visit, Sessions issued a memo to all U.S. attorneys asking federal prosecutors to renew focus on immigration enforcement. He asked them to focus on particular offenses that can help prevent and deter illegal immigration – and to each, designate a border security coordinator to oversee such efforts.  

Sessions’ visit comes amid new questions over the future of Trump’s promised border wall.  Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has suggested the wall is not a “leading priority,” and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told lawmakers last week that the administration would not build a wall from “sea to shining sea.”

But Sessions stressed enforcement as he met border agents and toured the area known as the Tuscon Sector.

The Tuscon Sector, which covers most of Arizona, once was considered one of the most congested areas in illegal border crossings and drug smuggling. But in recent years, that reputation has shifted to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas.

Last year, the Arizona area saw about 65,000 arrests—that’s roughly half the number of arrests agents made in 2012, according to Border Patrol data. Marijuana arrests also have dropped in the area by about 28 percent, from 1 million pounds in 2012 to 728,000 last year.

 “We hear you, and we have your back,” Sessions said Tuesday. “We will secure this border and bring the full weight of both the immigration courts and federal criminal enforcement to combat this attack on our national security and sovereignty.”

Sessions cited an “unprecedented” 40 percent drop in illegal crossings in January and February of this year – adding that March had the lowest monthly figure for “at least 17 years.”

In his memo, Sessions added that U.S. attorneys should make the prosecution of assault on a federal law enforcement officer a “top priority.”

“If someone dares to assault one of our folks in the line of duty, they will do federal time for it,” Sessions said.

Sessions also announced that the department would add 50 immigration judges to the bench this year, and an additional 75 judges in 2018.

“The catch and release policies of the past are over,” he said.

Per usual, Rush Limbaugh had a great take on this…

…These are just existing laws being enforced, with the attorney general heading down to Nogales to make the announcement. We’re just gonna enforce the law. We’re gonna start prosecuting the law and — well, there’s one change. We’re converting some of these misdemeanors to felonies ’cause we’re serious about this. Hey, you know, you Never Trumpers, you can stuff it, because this is what Trump was elected to. And it’s clear that Trump is committed to his agenda on this.

Look at it this way. If just threatening to enforce the law has slowed the flood of illegal immigrants, think what actually enforcing it will do. Think of this. It could be dramatic! Just the threat has caused the influx of illegals to slow to a trickle in certain areas of the border. And there’s one other observation, and I have to make this. In these three sound bites, you heard the attorney general announce that we are going to be doing things that we have been told for years cannot be done. We’re never had explanations. We’ve just been told that we can’t enforce the law as written, that we can’t prosecute.

“We can’t go after the coyotes and.. We can’t.” We’ve not been told why. We’re just told, “It’s not practical. It’s not relevant in the twenty-first century. We can’t treat these people as criminals. They’re simply seeking a better life. They are oppressed people who are deserting war-torn and poverty stricken homelands and so forth.” But I remember distinctly all these things we’ve been told we can’t do it. When people say, “Why don’t just enforce the law?

“Why do we even need comprehensive immigration reform?” We ask, “Why not just enforce the law we already have?” “Oh, we can’t do that! Well, we need a new comprehensive immigration law.” Why? To satisfy the donors? So Sessions is doing what everybody’s told us we can’t do. He’s announced that they’re gonna do what everybody told us cannot be done.

So, why did the Obama Administration and Liberal Politicians through their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, tell Americans that the existing Immigration Laws could not be enforced?

The answer, boys and girls, is because they did not want to enforce them.

Average Americans, s we demonstrated on November 8, 2016, were not buying the lies of Petulant President Pantywaist and his minions anymore. And, Americans had grown tired of watching illegals garner all of the benefits of being an American Citizen, with none of the responsibilities.

So, we made a choice on that fateful Election Day, to vote for someone who would do something about the very serious problems hat America is dealing with, due to our porous Southern Border and a President and his Political Party who welcomed those breaking into our country, instead of enforcing our laws against such criminal behavior.

Gosh. a Sovereign Nation who gets to decide who enters their borders. What a novel idea.

Who would have thought of that?

Well…can you say “Founding Fathers”, boys and girls?”

I knew that you could.

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other – John Adams

Isn’t breaking and entering into a Sovereign Nation an “immoral act”?

And, how can we be a “nation” if everyone speaks a different language and remains loyal to the country that they came from?

I’m just sayin’.

What about other Presidents? How did they feel about “multi-culturalism”and it’s role in immigration?

In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” – Theodore Roosevelt, 1907

There is no right listed in our Constitution that states that foreign citizens can enter our Sovereign Nation illegally and enjoy the benefits that our citizens do.

Living in America is not a right. It is a privilege.

Until He Comes,

Sen. Jeff Sessions is Confirmed as Attorney General. Hollywood Liberals Immediately Lose Their Collective Minds…Again.

February 9, 2017

snowflake-600-ci-2

“Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.” ― William F. Buckley Jr.

Foxnews.com reports that

Sen. Jeff Sessions won confirmation Wednesday evening to become the next attorney general of the United States, capping a Senate fight so contentious that one of the nominee’s biggest critics was forced by majority Republicans to sit out the last leg of the debate.

The Senate narrowly approved the Alabama Republican’s nomination on a 52-47 vote, the latest in a series of confirmation votes that have been dragged out amid Democratic protests. One Democrat, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, joined Republicans in voting to confirm Sessions. Sessions himself voted present.

In his farewell address Wednesday evening, Sessions urged his erstwhile colleagues to get along better following days of bruising debate.

“We need latitude in our relationships,” Sessions said. “Denigrating people who disagree with us is not a healthy trend for our body.” 

President Trump has accused Democrats of obstructing the confirmation process, though the Senate will turn next to votes on the president’s picks to lead the health and treasury departments.

Sessions became just the sixth Cabinet nominee approved by the Senate, joining Trump’s choices for Defense, Homeland Security, Education, Transportation and State.

Wednesday’s vote came after a rowdy overnight session during which Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was formally chastised for allegedly impugning Sessions’ integrity on the floor.

Warren had read a letter authored in 1986 by Coretta Scott King, who was against Sessions’ nomination at the time to the federal bench, arguing he used the power of his office to “chill” black voting rights. Warren also quoted the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., who originally had entered King’s letter into the record, describing Sessions as “disgraceful.”

GOP Senate leaders said Warren had violated Senate rules and should lose her speaking privileges. In a remarkable scene, the Senate then voted 49-43 to suspend Warren’s speaking privileges for the rest of the nomination process – the first time the Senate has imposed such a punishment in decades.

Democrats had repeatedly contended that Sessions is too close to Trump, too harsh on immigrants, and weak on civil rights for minorities, immigrants, gay people and women. Sessions was a prominent early backer of Trump, a supporter of his hard line on illegal immigration and joined Trump’s advocacy of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“There is simply nothing in Senator Sessions’ testimony before the Judiciary Committee that gives me confidence that he would be willing to stand up to the president,” said Sen. Pat Leahy, D-Vt. “He has instead demonstrated only blind allegiance.”

Republicans argued Sessions has demonstrated over a long career in public service, including two decades in the Senate, that he possesses integrity, honesty, and is committed to justice and the rule of law.

“He’s honest. He’s fair. He’s been a friend to many of us, on both sides of the aisle,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said on Wednesday. “It’s been tough to watch all this good man has been put through in recent weeks. This is a well-qualified colleague with a deep reverence for the law. He believes strongly in the equal application of it to everyone.”

The debate had been intensified by Sessions’ nomination to a federal judgeship three decades ago, which was rejected by the Senate Judiciary Committee after it was alleged that as a federal prosecutor he had called a black attorney “boy” and had said organizations like the NAACP and the American Civil Liberties Union were un-American.

At his hearing last month, Sessions said he had never harbored racial animus and claimed he had been falsely caricatured.

Before Wednesday’s vote, Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., the Senate’s lone black Republican, offered a personal and passionate defense of Sessions. He spoke of his personal experiences in introducing the Alabama Republican to African-American pastors at a racial forum in Charleston.

And he read the statements of black Alabama Democrats vouching for Sessions, who as attorney general will be the nation’s top law enforcement official.

Scott said the South is still working through racial differences and said “Jeff Sessions has earned my support and I will hold him accountable if and when we disagree.”

Scott read messages in which he was called an “Uncle Tom” — and worse — and said that “as I read through some of the comments of my friends on the left, you will wonder if I ever had an experience as a black person in America.”

“I just wish that my friends who call themselves liberals would want tolerance for all Americans.”

Unfortunately, Senator…that is not going to happen any time soon.

Celebrities are reacting to Jeff Sessions getting confirmed as attorney general. See reaction tweets from Hollywood stars below.

Sessions’ nomination was confirmed by the Senate on Wednesday night with a vote of 52-47. The confirmation comes after objection from Democratic senators, including Elizabeth Warren, who was silenced on the Senate floor on Tuesday. Celebrities also reacted negatively to Sessions’ nomination back in November, and in January, Jedediah Bila of “The View” actually begged Republicans to oppose him.

They did not, however, despite accusations of racism, conflicts of interest, and other issues with Sessions’ past. Now stars are expressing disappointment and outrage over his confirmation. Ellen Page simply tweeted, “Horrible.” Alyssa Milano said, “And there you have it.” And Sophia Bush declared, “This an abomination.”

Billy Eichner ‏quoted Harvey Milk as saying, “Rights are won only by those who make their voices heard,” and wrote, “Sessions is a revolting choice. The fight continues. #Resist.” George Takei sarcastically posted, “Congratulations, America. We have an oil man at State, a billionaire idiot at Education, and a racist as Attorney General. #SwampRats.” And, at the sight of David Duke cheering Sessions, Chris Evans exclaimed, “If David Duke….DAVID!…DUKE!… thinks you’re right, then you are unequivocally wrong. The confirmation of @jeffsessions is beyond words.”

In response to the same Duke tweet, Andy Richter said, “You should be so proud, @GOP.” Rosie O’Donnell posted, “Sen. Jeff Sessions has been confirmed as the 84th attorney general. the absolute worst thing – jeff sessions.” Warren herself tweeted, “If Jeff Sessions makes even the tiniest attempt to bring his racism, sexism & bigotry into @TheJusticeDept, he’ll hear from all of us.” That prompted both Andy Cohen and Alison Brie to write “amen” in reply.

“ICYMI: #JeffersonBeauregardSessionsIII was deemed too racist to be a federal judge but he was just confirmed to be US Attorney General,” wrote Yvette Nicole Brown. Condola Rashad also tweeted, “This is an abomination. A direct threat to everything our great Civil Rights leaders fought for is now in order. Onwards! We won’t go back.”

Dear Condola: SHUT UP AND ACT!

As they have shown before and now by their overly dramatic reaction to the President’s pick for Attorney General,Jeff Sessions, being approved, those “celebrities” on the Left of the Political Spectrum who voted for Hillary Clinton to be our next President of the United States of America, continue to throw the longest temper tantrum over the results of one of the biggest upsets in an American Presidential Election that the world has ever seen.

These self-proclaimed activists, are making a lie out of the claim that they have made for years that they are the most tolerant…and “gifted” among us.

In fact, these sore losers remind me of the hysterically sobbing children that you hear in every Walmart across the country.

It’s not that those children are crying because they are physically hurt. Just like these Hollywood Liberals, they’re crying because they did not get their way.

And, all these months after their beloved Hillary lost, these petulant, arrogant, spoiled Hollywood Libs have cried so hard that, just like the toddler in Walmart who sees a toys that they can’t have, they simply cannot stop crying.

This epic meltdown by those who are paid handsomely to entertain us is a direct result of an isolated ignorance of average Americans’ desire to rid ourselves of those in the Halls of Power who told us repeatedly that they knew what was best for us and “who we were”, while their actual mission was to turn America into a Third-World Barrio in their quest to make us a Socialist Paradise.

All during the Presidential Campaign, the Democratic Party, along with those in “Showbiz”, through their minions in the Main Stream Media, assured us that it was a foregone conclusion that Hillary Clinton would be our 45th president.

There is a reason for that.

The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.

Their overly dramatic overreaction to Hillary losing the election has been caused by their own unbridled and unsupported arrogance.

Just like their fellow Modern American Liberals who run Democratic Party, the disconnected “dancing monkeys” in Tinsel Town and the Big Apple never saw Trump’s victory coming.

At this point, all their incessant national temper tantrum is doing, is making them look like fools.

I don’t remember any of us average Americans asking them for their opinion as to how we should vote, do you?

Perhaps, if they got their noses out of the air and actually associated with their families and former friends “back home”, instead of kissing each other’s hindquarters at the latest Premiere or “social event”, perhaps they and reality would not have taken divergent paths, and they would conduct and comport themselves like the Legendary American Actor, John Wayne, who once said,

…I always thought I was a liberal but I came up terribly surprised when I found I was a right wing conservative extremist…I have always listened to every human being I’ve ever met about how I should feel.  But this so-called new liberal group… they never listen to your point of view and they make a decision as to what you think and they’re articulate enough and in control of enough of the press to force that image out for the average person.  For some reason, maybe it’s these pictures, they have not been able to do that with me…it hasn’t affected my career in popularity in spite of the fact that they’ve tried to make them do it.  There isn’t a hell of a lot we can do to change human behavior.  We keep making laws to try to change human behavior but we can’t do it…You’re being conned into Keynesianism and socialism now but it isn’t going to stop the selfishness of human behavior.  It isn’t going to stop the greed.  If you take $20 and give a dollar to every son of a b!tch in the room, you come back a year later one of the b@st@rds will have most of the money.  It’s just human nature.  We’re never gonna whip it with a lot of laws. 

As communication gets better and you make people conscious of somebody in trouble, starving or something like that, the average person will help…I think there are people who try to affect a thinking where they know more than some other son of a b!tch and try to pull a false impression on what human nature is.  We’ve proven we go back to hope at the first opportunity…and bam they’re out there ready to grab it.  So we are optimistic; we have to be optimistic.  What else would we be if you lose optimism?”

Well, Duke…I guess when you lose optimism, you sound like a bunch of spoiled brats.

Like you so eloquently said,

Life is tough, but it’s tougher if you’re stupid. 

Today’s “Stars” should have listened to you.

Until He Comes,
