Exclusive: Sources: Grassley to allow
special panel for Sessions witch-hunt

Conservative Review, by Nate Madden

Original Article

Posted By:Tianne, 1/9/2017 5:49:44 AM

Sen. Jeff Sessions’ confirmation is shaping up to be a political circus act as sources indicate Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley R-Iowa, (D, 66%) is expected to announce a special panel “to examine Sen. Sessions’ history on civil rights.” But in reality, the panel will only serve as a platform for smears, rumor, and spin. A special panel would go directly against the Iowa Republican’s previously expressed goal of avoiding the disaster confirmation hearings for President George W. Bush’s Attorney General John Ashcroft. In a statement in November, Grassley referred to Ashcroft’s confirmation hearings as a “reckless campaign that snowballed into

Grassley may be a wobbly RINO, but he used to be a good man. I guess he´s been in DC too long, but he is still susceptible to pressure. I have dealt with him before and had an impact. I suggest that anyone who really cares about this call his office. It would likely make the difference.

Maybe Trump will call them into his office and rip them a good one on how to get his people confirmed. Anytime John Lewis is on a Panel, it means he will go on and on and on about Civil Rights. Jeesh! He seems to be doing all right for himself! I don´t see anyone holding him back! Get over it! Jeff Sessions is a good and decent man and he will be a great AG. Confirm him without all the theatrics!

This is a no-win situation for Grassley -- if he refuses to give the haters their own panel and fleeting moment of fame, it just gives the enemedia something to scream about. Grassley´s bigger problem is that the Judiciary Committee has long been a magnet for demagogues -- on both sides. (He has clowns like Graham and Flake, and the Dems have such towering figures of integrity and legal excellence as Crooked Dianne Feinstein and Al the genius Frankewn.). The best bet is to give them a lousy TV time, let them rant, and make sure that Cruz and Lee are on hand to correct the record. A stronger chairman would handle the matter by asking the oppo panel before they start if they have enough play-doh, coloring books, safety pins and hug-blankets to get them through their false witness smears-gabord against the good man Senator Sessions.

Take names and record the questions. When the tide turns--and it always does--in 4, 8, or 12 years, pull out those notes.

Subject their nominees to the exact same witch hunt.

So, "In 2017, Sen. Blowhard asked Sen. Sessions in his confirmation hearing, ´when did you stop beating your wife?´ I now ask you, sir, when did you??"

Right #2. Also, don´t forget that Hillary used the ´´N´´ word, as well as ´´FJB´´.

Democrats display their hypocrisy again!

Ashcroft was accused of racism, remwmber?
And Ashcroft failed to point out that he was a member of a black church in the D.C. area, because he was not comfortable with a typical white, protestant church. (his father was a pastor of a pentecostal church, which Ashcroft grew up in.)
Sessions will fight back. But the Democratic senators who previously loved him, will be as cowardly as Comey.

Just another example of the lack of backbone in these old RHINOs. Every one of them who have been there more than 12 years should be removed at their next election. Trump´s problems will come more from these old GOPe´s than from the Democrats.

I would be very surprised if Grassley allowed this. People should contact him, if so, and let him know he would be well advised to change his mind if he wants to keep his job.

The Obama Administration is leaving office much like the way it came in — by exploiting perceived crises. “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste,” Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s just-named chief of staff, told a Wall Street Journal conference of top CEOs in November 2008 while his boss was still president-elect. Since then a slew of constitutionally dubious executive orders, presidential emergencies, and rushed legislation have characterized the Obama presidency. Now he is leaving office by issuing a blizzard of “midnight regulations” and edicts. One of the most troublesome came last Friday and gave the federal government the

The media and law enforcement have told us over and over that Esteban Santiago is merely a madman, so the Fort Lauderdale horror is more like a Columbine, not a Brussels Airport mass slaughter. But thanks to detective work that should be the sort of review the FBI would undertake if somebody came in and spoke about voices in his head and ISIS, we know that Santiago showed every sign of converting to Islam long before his deployment to Iraq. Pamela Geller cites a Got News report and gets right to the point: Estaban Sanitago’s aka Aashiq Hammad journey to

Intel Credibility Gap

At a hearing today, Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-Indiana) today said it was “astounding” that anyone would question the credibility of our intelligence agencies. That comment defies the factual record. It’s not that Americans don’t appreciate our many honest, hardworking intelligence professionals. But there are concrete examples of false information promulgated by some U.S.intelligence officials under Democrat and Republican administrations. That’s why it would be imprudent to blindly accept, without question, everything our intelligence officials say or, for that matter, everything any government claims. In fact, one need look no farther than a lead witness at today’s hearing on Russian election

Obama shock: Another $6 billion

President Obama, who this week has issued a flurry of environmental rules, is planning to unleash another set of "midnight regulations" right before he leaves office that will cost Americans $6 billion. Obama has already broken all past records on creating federal regulations and red tape, and his new adds will boost the overall price tag to over $1 trillion. The new regulations, according to the watchdog group American Action Forum, include four from the Environmental Protection Agency and one from Interior. "These five measures alone could impose $5.1 billion in costs and more than 350,000 paperwork burden hours. In addition, three other

On Saturday morning, I recalled a conversation over the summer with a German lady who had "found herself on the receiving end of some vibrant multicultural outreach from one of Mutti Merkel´s boy charmers": As a result, she no longer goes out after dark. She had also decided - with reluctance, because she enjoyed it - to cancel her participation in a local Christmas market, where she´d sung carols every year - in broad daylight. "Why would you do that?" I asked. "Because it´s Christmas," she said, "and I´m worried Christmas will be a target." And I concluded: Christmas markets are a grand German tradition,

Donald Trump officially crossed the line to 270 electoral votes with electors in Texas casting a ballot for the Republican shortly before 5:30 p.m. EST. Calls for Trump to be voted down by members of the Electoral College were roundly ignored on Monday – with only two ´faithless´ Republican electors rejecting him and four deserting Democrat Hillary Clinton. David Bright of Maine was supposed to back the Democratic loser but announced he would defy the wishes of the state´s voters and back Bernie Sanders, her primary opponent. He was later told he´d be replaced by another elector if he made

Donald Trump has hit back at Meryl Streep calling her a ´Hillary lover´ after her Golden Globes acceptance speech took aim at the president-elect. Streep, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday, slammed Trump in front of a room of stunned Hollywood stars. She said the moment he mocked and humiliated a disabled reporter ´broke her heart´ as Streep labelled it the year´s most stunning performance. Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he had not seen Streep´s speech or the Golden Globes coverage. Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he

Dozens of celebrities turned out to party until 4am at the White House in a farewell bash that saw the likes of Paul McCartney, Meryl Streep and SJP tear up the dancefloor. The strictly VIP guestlist were banned from recording inside the party where Barack and Michelle served chicken and waffles to weary partygoers in the early hours of Saturday morning. But that didn´t stop A-list attendees from spilling the beans and their selfies to social media revealing how many of the Hollywood elite turned out to say goodbye to the beloved first family.

Turning attention away from her and toward Donald J. Trump, Meryl Streep used her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes to call out the president-elect for appearing to mock a disabled New York Times reporter in 2015, and warned that a free press would need to be defended. Ms. Streep campaigned for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Some conservative commentators immediately criticized her decision to bring politics so vividly into the show. But the room roundly applauded her remarks, which included a plea to support the Committee to Protect Journalists.

DONALD Trump’s plans to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem is a “declaration of war on Muslims”, a close aide of Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas has declared. Donald Trump wants to overturn years of government policy and move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Mr Trump’s advisors say the move is a “priority” for the president-elect after his inauguration later this month. But the billionaire businessman’s plans have been criticised by one of Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas’s aides. Mahmoud al-Habash said the proposal to move the embassy is "a declaration of war on Muslims."

President Barack Obama taunted Republican lawmakers Friday as they prepared to gut his "signature legislative achievement" ObamaCare. During an online interview with left-wing White House echo-chamber "explainer" website Vox, Obama snidely said that he would publicly support repealing "Obamacare" if Republicans could come up with something better, but expressed doubt that the GOP would be able to manage it. "Now is the time that Republicans have to go ahead and show their cards," the president said. "If in fact, they have a program that would genuinely work better, and they want to call it whatever they want -- they can

She is among the most famous and easily recognized women in the world, but first lady Michelle Obama feels "invisible" when she steps off her official stage, according to her best friend and ally in the White House. And the reason is a remarkable one considering that she and her husband, President Obama, are America´s first African-American presidential couple. According to top adviser Valerie Jarrett, Obama is invisible because she is black. In her new book about the importance of black mothers in America and how they walk a tightrope in society, White House correspondent April Ryan revealed that Jarrett

WASHINGTON -- US Secretary of State John Kerry and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas offered similar warnings to the incoming Trump administration over the weekend: Moving the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would ignite a violent uprising that no one would be able to control. In an interview with CBS, Kerry, preparing to leave the State Department after engaging in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict intensely for four years, said the violent movement would extend beyond the West Bank. "You’d have an explosion– an absolute explosion in the region, not just in the West Bank and perhaps even in Israel
