Sessions should resign, apologize, then drown himself in a bucket of goat piss. After which they should euthanize the goat to keep it from the humiliation of having such an awful creep associated with its urine.

Put together a timeline on what Sessions did and said, and am now thinking that Dems are overplaying their hand.

Lance Cockstrong said...

General Sessions (still no idea why the fuck everyone keeps calling him that) is inconsequential. Now that he is out of the way the next step is to appoint a special prosecutor and force President Stupefaction to cough up his tax returns. Then the shit will hit the fan.

Why hasn't Drumpf released his birth certificate?

Great moments in recent Attorney General History:

Under oath, Eric Holder said he was never involved in the subpoena of news media phone records. But later reports revealed Holder did sign off on a decision to approve a search warrant of Fox News reporter James Rosen's phone and email records.

...and....

In front of Congress, Jeff Sessions stated that he never spoke to any representatives of the Russian government about the 2016 presedential election campaign. But later reports indicated he did meet with the Russian ambassador as part of his job being on the Armed Services committee and once at a public meeting put on by policy group, neither encounter having anything to do with the presedential campaign.

Lance: I didn't know they called him that, but if they do maybe it's because he's named after a confederate general?

Looks like Pruitt used a private email for government business also.

Sessions should have never been nominated in the first place. Trump was just trolling. If an elderly elf who was deemed to racist to be a judge is the beat you can do we have problems. Kinda like that old goofy woman W thought would make a good Supreme Court justice.

Hey.

32 Blue Lives Matter Bills Have Been Introduced Across 14 States This Year

and also

Republican lawmakers introduce bills to curb protesting in at least 18 states

Just a little reminder that the party that does not have "democratic" in its name, isn't really a big fan of democracy. The GOP has been heading steadily toward fascism for a little while now. Trump is more a culmination of a trend than a frightening aberration.

Brigade Fifteen said...

I'm loving the gung-ho military gear worn by the wannabe dictator heading up our federal government at his latest speech to Navy personnel.

When does he just give in and start wearing a fake uniform festooned with medals and braids, and start making everyone call him "Generalissimo Trump"?

I bet it won't be long now ...

Brigade Fifteen said...

So Trump's son-in-law also met with the Russian ambassador. It might save time at this point if the White House just tell us who didn't meet with the Russians.

Sessions lied under oath that he never met with any Russians. Sessions was also part of Drumpf's campaign.

Several wingnuts swear no one from Drumpf's campaign had any contact with Russians and then we find out Flynn not only called Russians he and Drumpf's SIL met with them in person in Drumpf tower.

Lying under oath is perjury. Ask the 2nd beat Potus ever-Bill Clinton.

From the Guardian- Case in point: in the late 1990s Sessions argued that lying about sex in a deposition for a civil lawsuit constituted an impeachable offense. What then would be the proper response to a man charged with lying under oath about meeting with a rival foreign government?

The last time Trump said a staffer had his 'full faith and confidence'. Flynn was gone within days. I'll be surprised if Sessions makes it through the weekend before he winds up being DQ'd but I ain't holding my breath. As for Pencie's e-mail issue, IOKIYAR. These people are imbeciles.

The question was did you have any discussions with any Russian officials about the 2016 presedential election campaign.

It's a given that Senators have discussions with representatives of foreign governments all the time. Even idiots like Claire McCaskill.

Get a grip.

mike from iowa said...

ps Francken never asked Sessions if he had contacts with Russians. Sessions volunteered that false information. Francken asked if Sessions knew about any administration contacts what we he do? Sessions said he himself had no contacts.

That was a written question from Patrick Leahy and Sessions answered NO.

Man Arrested For Jewish Community Center Bomb Threats Was Liberal Journalist Fired For Fabrication:

http://www.mediaite.com/online/man-arrested-for-jcc-bomb-threats-appears-to-be-former-journalist-fired-for-fabrication/

(And a black guy to boot!)

A disgraced former reporter was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Friday for several bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers, Jewish schools and Jewish museums around the country.

Juan Thompson, 31, was arrested in St. Louis by the FBI for making at least eight bomb threats and the cyberstalking of an ex-girlfriend. Thompson was a former reporter for The Intercept, and was fired after it was discovered that he made up sources and stories, including one about Charleston shooter Dylann Roof.

Franken: "CNN just published a story alleging that the intelligence community provided documents to the president-elect last week that included information that quote, ‘Russian operatives claimed to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump.’ These documents also allegedly say quote, ‘There was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump's surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.’

"Now, again, I'm telling you this as it's coming out, so you know. But if it's true, it's obviously extremely serious and if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?"

Sessions: "Senator Franken, I'm not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I didn't have — did not have communications with the Russians, and I'm unable to comment on it."

Anymoose do you see in paragraph three where Sessions said he DID Not have communications with Russians? Do you see that. That is and was a lie. It had nothing to do with whether Sessions acted as an adviser or a Senator.

I agree, as I grew up around wild hogs, but in Texas they passed a law making it legal to shoot them from helicopters, like that was gonna help or something, and now they're trying to make it legal to poison them, and the people who kill and eat them aren't happy about it at all.

Like I said, the folks who hunt them are pissed off about the prospect of them being poisoned with warfarin, not just because they don't want to eat poisoned meat, but because how are they gonna keep other animals from eating the poison? And what about the animals who eat those other poisoned animals?
Seems pretty stupid to me.

You shoot three guns at one time or it takes three people with one gun per to do the deed?


Lt. Commander Johnson said...

It all depends on the range, and the area you are hunting, stupid mike.

Lt. Commander Johnson said...

BTW....most feral hogs are killed because they are varmints. They destroy the land, and the crops.

Only an idiot would eat a boar...too much testosterone in the meat. Gives it a nasty flavor.

Sows can be OK, but you really only want the back-strap.

Now...the piglets are the tastiest.

Nobody really hunts hogs with a helicopter. (except for television purposes), You CAN, if you have the money to operate a helo.

You hunt them over corn-feeders, mainly.

I've seen sows come out, with a litter of piglets, you shoot the momma, the piglets run into the brush.

Wait 5 or 10 minutes, and the piglets are back, licking up the blood from their dead momma.

Then, mike, you open up on them with your AR-15, with 30 rounds to spare.

BTW....you know feral hogs can reproduce at less than 6 months old? It's not unusual for them to havee 8-12 piglets per litter. They can have a new litter 3 times per year.

Think about how they can over-run your land in a few years.

Poison? Sure, if you value your land...you just don't eat the hogs.

I enjoy shooting them, just for the hell of it.

Not to mention...the deer hate them, too.

Lt. Commander Johnson said...

Ya know, agin, I want to expound of the hunting of feral hogs...brings back one of favorite memories...

One of my favorite hunting grounds is in San Saba, Texas. They raise some type of high-bred sheep...I forget their names.

They have 3 BIG dogs, known as Great Pyrenees'
Some of the nicest, friendliest dogs you could ever hope to meet.

However...they have enormously this coats, ant these dogs are shepherds. They will sleep in the middle of the goat herd, and wait for pigs or coyotes to try and sneak-in, to grab a lamb...stay perfectly still, until the hog or coyote is at the point of No Return".

Then, it's death time, for the intruder. They get cut-up sometimes, but they are always back in the middle of that goat herd. Sleeping on the grass....20 degrees F

Next day, they will limp-in for their bacon and egg sandwich.

Hang out in the sun for a bit, get a few pats and rubs, maybe some medicinal treatment, and back to the herd. I swear, they actually take shifts.
