Sessions Pressed on Lack of
Diversity at the Justice Department

Bloomberg Politics, by Chris Strohm

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/14/2017 5:47:44 PM

Video) - Attorney General Jeff Sessions acknowledged Tuesday that he’s recommended only one black candidate to be a U.S. attorney, one of the highest-profile positions in the Justice Department. That’s out of 53 U.S. attorneys nominated so far by President Donald Trump, according to the department. While the attorney general’s testimony Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee was dominated by questions about the probe into Russian meddling in last year’s presidential campaign, Democrats also pressed Sessions over the lack of diversity in his department’s top ranks. Sessions, who agreed that diversity matters,

Comments:
All Sessions has to tell these Trump antagonists is that I´ve been busy taking care of backlog left by 0bama and his holdovers. Also, 0bama had eight years. Why would diversity be a problem in any government agency now? Huh? (Jackasses.) Oh, remind them that going after Hillary, DNC hack, Uranium One, etc. is time sensitive and consuming.

The lack of "diversity" includes a striking lack of honest, hard-working, politically-neutral lawyers who care deeply about the future of the USA and Western civilization.

Heard the last 15 minutes of Rush today, driving (only time I listen). He was livid about Sessions’s questioning. That it was not “questions”, but speeches for the folks back home, monologues to make Sessions look bad, Anything but fact finding on the issue they are supposedly investigating.

No surprise.

As I understand it Sessions has little or no say in the candidates brought forward for US Attorney slots. They´re appointed by the President and recommended by the Senators in each Attorney´s state.

There is a huge lack of conservatives in the DOJ, and none of Obama´s hangovers seem to be being replaced. Sessions is like a 300 lb man that says he is on a diet. With Sessions getting anything done, I am just not seeing it.

As the director of a state program, I saw my supervisor once each year for the annual evaluation. One year he reviewed the template and asked why my program was not more diverse.
Since the entire program was only my secretary and I, there was no satisfactory answer - until we concluded that my secretary was a female and I was hard-of-hearing (even though we both remained white).

It´s all a paperwork sham.

Minnesota Lt. Gov. Tina Smith was appointed Wednesday to temporarily fill the Senate seat of Democratic Sen. Al Franken, who resigned amid allegations of sexual misconduct and pressure within his party to leave office. Smith, a Democrat, was appointed by Minnesota Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and will serve until a special election next year to complete Franken’s term ending in 2020. She is expected to run to finish the term. Dayton was under pressure from Washington Democrats to appoint a replacement who would run in 2018. The 59-year-old Smith is a former General Mills executive who in the 1990 started her own

Trump’s right — by the

President Donald Trump has spent the better part of his campaign and now, presidency, railing against the media, calling out its members for bias, condemning certain networks for outright targeted take-down attempts of his administration — and according to a new study from the Media Research Center, he kind of has a point. Specifically, the study showed that in September, October and November, almost 91 percent of remarks from reporters’ and other so-called non-partisan-types’ mouths during evening ABC, NBC and CBS broadcasts were anti-Trump in nature. Ninety-one percent. That’s pretty dang significant.

Rep. Mo Brooks announced Wednesday in an emotional House floor address that he has prostate cancer. Mr. Brooks, Alabama Republican, said that losing the Senate primary in October may have saved his life. He was running against eventual nominee Roy Moore, but fell short. He said that if he had won, he would not have been able to schedule his physical, which led to his diagnosis. “God does work in mysterious ways,” he said. Mr. Brooks said he will leave for surgery, which is scheduled for Friday.

A former congressional intern reportedly says she too was a victim of inappropriate sexual contact by now-retired Rep. John Conyers, saying Conyers even claimed during that encounter to have “inside information” on then-missing federal intern Chandra Levy. Courtney Morse, 36, described the incident from 16 years ago to The Washington Post. She said Conyers, D-Mich., mentioned the Levy case when Morse was a college intern for him and the congressman drove her home one night. Morse said Conyers wrapped his hand around hers while it was in her lap and said he was interested in a sexual relationship,

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that Nielsen understands the department´s daily operations due to her previous experience and is ready to lead on her first day. Meanwhile, Democrats said Nielsen lacks the experience required to run a major agency with 240,000 employees. They also cited concerns about possible White House interference

A borderless Africa? Not yet,

Kampala, Uganda - For years African leaders have toyed with the idea of free movement by citizens across the continent, even raising the possibility of a single African passport. Now some countries, most recently Kenya, are taking bold steps to encourage borderless travel that could spur trade and economic growth in a region in desperate need of both. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta announced during his inauguration last week that the East African commercial hub will now give visas on arrival to all Africans. That follows similar measures by nations including Benin and Rwanda. The African Union continental body has cheered

(Video) - President Trump plans to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the American Embassy there, upending nearly seven decades of American foreign policy and potentially destroying his efforts to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians. Mr. Trump’s decision, a high-risk foray into the thicket of the Middle East, was driven not by diplomatic calculations but by a campaign promise. (Snip) But the president, faced with a deadline of this past Monday to make that decision, still plans to sign a national security waiver to keep the embassy in Tel Aviv for an additional six months,

The left, including much of the media, are going nuts now, drooling at Michael Flynn’s guilty plea as if it’s the final nail in President Donald Trump’s coffin — the long-sought means to the impeachment end. It’s not. That’s ludicrous. And the more hours that tick since Flynn announced his guilty plea, the more ludicrous the left’s wild-eyed panting seems. Here are the facts: Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about communications he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on Dec. 22 and 29. In December — after Trump had already won the White House.

On Tuesday, Democrat Doug Jones pulled off a stunning victory over Republican Roy Moore in Alabama. The race went down to the wire, but the Democrat prevailed. Here are five things to know about why Jones won, why Moore lost, and what it means for the future of the U.S. Senate and both parties. 1. Character matters. According to NBC News exit polls, 49 percent of Alabama voters thought the sexual assault accusations against Roy Moore were "definitely" or "probably" true.

Scandal: For 18 months, the FBI has been fixated on determining whether President Trump worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election. But explosive text exchanges between top FBI agents suggest it should be looking in the mirror. The text messages sent between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, which became public on Wednesday, provide a rare and illuminating window into just how rabidly partisan putatively nonpartisan law enforcement officials can be. In the exchanges, they called Trump an "idiot," a "loathsome human," an "enormous do-che," and said "this man cannot be president." When not berating Trump, they were praising Hillary Clinton.

Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won re-election by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three elections by 35 points, 30 points and 28 points, respectively. So it takes a special kind of stupid to pick a candidate who can lose to a Democrat in Alabama.

A professor at Boston University has proclaimed Christmas carol favorite “Jingle Bells” to be a “racist song” and is urging people to shun the jaunty tune. Kyna Hamill, a theater history professor at Boston University, recently told the Boston Globe that the venerable Christmas song has a “secret” racist past that has been “systematically” hidden from Americans as they celebrate the Christmas season. “The history of the song has remained hidden behind its local and season affection,” Hamill told the paper. She continued saying the song’s “blackface and racist origins have been subtly and systematically removed from its history.” (Tweet/Video) Hamill

Soon he was engulfed in a sea of dark suits, every Republican lawmaker wanting to slap him on the shoulder and be a part of his moment. Ryan was the man of

Democrats´ shocking victory in the Alabama Senate special election undoubtedly has raised their potential list of seats they might win. If they can win in the Deep South, they can win anywhere. High on the list of reach targets is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is up for re-election in 2018. Hillary Clinton did quite well in Texas, only losing by 9 points (better than she did in Iowa) — as compared to nearly 28 points in Alabama. What´s more, Democrats have a solid candidate in the form of Rep. Beto O´Rourke from El Paso. It is true, of course,
