No Snags for Sessions at
Confirmation Opening

Real Clear Politics, by James Arkin

Posted By:garnet, 1/11/2017 8:01:35 AM

Republican senators on Tuesday heaped praise on their colleague Jeff Sessions during his confirmation hearing to be the next U.S. attorney general, sending a strong signal that the Alabama lawmaker is likely to pass muster in the full Senate. Democrats, skeptical of Sessions on issues ranging from civil rights to immigration to abortion and same-sex marriage, questioned him carefully on his tenure both as a senator and U.S. attorney and appeared to be mostly opposed to his confirmation. In the hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sessions offered some insight into how he would run the Department of Justice, suggesting he would

Democrat senators from states that went for Trump know what direction the political wind is coming from. Those from solid, democrat voter states such as Connecticut, New York, Illinois, and California can register their "no" vote with immunity from the voters back home, but for those in states that are turning blue, like West Virginia (Pay attention Joe Manchin), their vote on Trump nominees will determine their own political future.

But, but, but... Al Franken called him a liar, and that´s what has us libs excited that this disgusting racist will not be confirmed. Hopefully some more protesters in white sheets will disrupt the proceedings too.

Mr. Sessions is an honorable man. Cory Booker should be ashamed of himself and so should John Lewis. Only in the twisted world of the progs can a man who bankrupted the Klan and put it out of business be called a racist.

There, fixed it for them.

The Democrats and that horrible Cory Booker can and will lie, but it will not affect him. In the end, Booker will harm himself more than Sessions.

I predict he will be confirmed with no problems.

Goodbye, Obama
Reason, by Gene Healy    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 1/11/2017 8:31:24 AM     Post Reply
In the presidency´s long march toward full-spectrum dominance over American life, the POTUS has become, among other things, host in chief of our national talk show. Barack Obama fulfilled that role better than most. Our 44th president never seemed more completely in his element than when trading zingers at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner. We find it reassuring somehow to be reminded that the guy with the kill list has a sense of humor. At the 2015 version of the annual press and pols confab, Obama got one of his bigger laugh lines when he joked: "Dick Cheney says he

The transgender bathroom case arrives
at the Supreme Court
Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw    Original Article

Back in October I wrote about the announcement that the Supreme Court would be hearing the case of G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board. This is the long awaited “transgender bathroom law” challenge to the Obama administration’s reinterpretation of Title IX law which sought to morph the definition of “sex” to include the SJW concept of gender identity. At the time I expressed concern over both how a split court might rule on the science behind the question as well as the possibility that they would dodge the fundamental questions entirely and choose to narrowly rule on the legal mechanics.

In his first public remarks as President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to be secretary of state, former ExxonMobile chief executive Rex Tillerson will say he believes Russia is “a danger” and that NATO allies are right to be alarmed by its aggression. But he makes no mention of Moscow’s interference in the U.S. election campaign or the future of U.S. sanctions. “I come before you at a pivotal time in both the history of our nation and our world,” Tillerson will testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Wednesday morning in an opening statement that lays out a realist and tough view

Before the president from Chicago
says farewell, there´s disappointment

For all the gooey talk about President Barack Obama´s legacy, it can probably best be described in four blunt words: Disappointment. And Donald Trump. What we can´t measure, not completely, not yet, is the inspiration he´s given to millions of people — particularly to African-Americans — who years ago couldn´t dare dream that a black man would ever be elected president. And we can´t measure what his presidency has triggered in the minds and imaginations of the young. It´s all part of his charm that offered hope for future generations, and the long lines of proud families waiting to see him speak Tuesday

What Exactly Is Trumpism?
National Review, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 1/10/2017 8:21:40 AM     Post Reply
Donald Trump is hated by liberal Democrats because, among other things, he is likely to reverse the entire Obama project. And, far worse, he probably will seek fundamental ways of obstructing its future resurgence — even perhaps by peeling off traditional Democratic constituencies. The proverbial mainstream media despise Trump. Culturally, he has become a totem of their fears: coarseness, ostentatiousness, flamboyance, and the equation of big money with taste and success. His new approach to the media may make them irrelevant, and they fear their downfall could be well earned. The Republican Washington–to–New York establishment is alienated by Trump. It

Democrats’ opposition to Trump
is lame, lazy and leaderless

It is a tough time to be a Democrat. The weeks that follow a defeat at the ballot box are never flattering for the losers, but this time around, the Democrats seem to be particularly demoralized. Their melancholy and fatigue appear to be getting worse. Their opposition to President-elect Donald Trump and the Republicans is lame, lazy and leaderless. Eventually they will get their game back, but I admit to feeling some satisfaction watching them struggle as the confirmation hearings for Trump’s Cabinet picks get underway. Jeff Sessions (R), my senator from Alabama, appears to be waltzing to his confirmation as

Barbra Streisand blasts Donald Trump:
´I completely agree with Meryl´

Barbra Streisand is standing with Meryl Streep, who used her acceptance speech at Sunday´s Golden Globe Awards to criticize Donald Trump for lacking empathy and infamously mocking a disabled reporter in 2015. A day after Streep delivered her blistering rebuke of the president-elect, Streisand called in to Hardball With Chris Matthews and expressed her solidarity. I thought that [Streep] said what she said beautifully, Streisand remarked. Regarding Trump´s ridiculing of journalist Serge F. Kovaleski 14 months ago, Streisand added, I completely agree with Meryl. It was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any respectful person.

Michael Eric Dyson Calls for

Professor Michael Eric Dyson thinks that white people should have an ‘Individual Reparations Account’ to make donations to black institutions and individuals. (Snip) I agree with reparations, but maybe this is my white privilege speaking: I can’t imagine actually doing that. That is what I meant by an I.R.A.: an individual reparations account. You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician — this is what you, an individual, conscientious, “woke” citizen can do. But charity can’t be the end of it, right? The Koch brothers gave the United Negro College Fund $25 million, but I

The Gold Star father who blasted Donald Trump at the Democratic convention this summer is returning to the national stage this week, firing off a letter demanding the Senate reject Sen. Jeff Sessions, Mr. Trump’s attorney general nominee. Khizr Khan, the Pakistan-born father of a U.S. Army captain killed in the Iraq war, said his son’s service was a rejection of people like Mr. Sessions, who he accused of associating with racially divisive and ‘intensely anti-Muslim” groups. Mr. Khan also said Mr. Sessions has defended proposals “that would single Muslim immigrants out for discriminatory treatment on the basis of their religious beliefs.” “My

Hillary Clinton’s political career is probably over, but just because she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump doesn’t mean she wasn’t prepared to win. Axios reporter Mike Allen has revealed Hillary’s list of prospective nominees for important cabinet posts in her administration, and it includes a number of interesting choices. John Podesta, her campaign chairman who accidentally exposed his entire email account to Russian hackers, was listed as the frontrunner to be Hillary Clinton’s secretary of state. Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly also being considered for the position. Facebook executive and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg was in

The saga over alleged Russian interference in the U.S. elections took another sinister turn Tuesday, as it was revealed that U.S. intelligence officials provided President-elect Donald Trump with a charge that the Russians had obtained dirt on him. U.S. officials included a two-page synopsis of ´kompromat´ – Russian for compromising material – as part of their security briefing of Trump on Friday. The material was based on memos compiled by a British intelligence operative who was considered ´credible´ by the U.S. intelligence community, CNN reported. What is believed to be the document itself was published by Buzzfeed, which pointed out

One Silicon Valley executive had a few choice words to describe Americans living in the heart of the nation, and they were not flattering. Melinda Byerley, MBA and founder of Timeshare CMO, a Silicon Valley-based tech start-up, tweeted out Saturday afternoon describing what middle America could do to “get more jobs in their area.” Byerley says that the first thing those in middle America need to realize is that “no educated person wants to live in a sh**hole with stupid people.” Particularly, in a “sh**hole” filled with people who are “violent, racist, and/or misogynistic.” In Byerley’s opinion, “big corporations,” do

At one point in President Obama´s interview with ABC News that aired over the weekend, George Stephanopoulos noted that "the Democratic Party got pretty hollowed out on your watch, about 1,000 seats lost in the Congress, Senate, governors, state houses." Then he asked: "Is that on you?" It was a good question. Since Obama took office, Democrats´ fortunes have plummeted. The party lost 900 seats in state legislatures, 12 governorships, 69 House seats and 13 Senate seats. Clearly, whatever leadership Obama provided, it wasn´t helping Democrats connect with voters across the country. So what was Obama´s response? At first, he
