Jeff is in charge, and we should all be worried.

Image result for jeff sessions images    All this talk about trump's firing of the FBI director has caused us to overlook another very important and troubling story: The actions of Beauregard Sessions throughout this sad saga.

The Attorney General was to recuse himself from anything having to do with the Russia investigation of team trump, and yet we are learning that he participated in  trump's decision to remove Comey and will be helping trump search for his replacement.

This is the same Attorney General, mind you, who has been moving at warp speed since taking office to remove gains made in Civil Rights over the past 50 years.

I don't always like to quote the good Reverend but he is right when he says the following:

"Sessions has set out with a vengeance to transform the Department of Justice into a Department of Injustice. He’s been hindered by the incompetence that characterizes this administration. He’s home alone in his department, with no nominations offered for the heads of top DOJ units – the civil rights, criminal or national security divisions. His deputies – Nos. 2 and 3 in the DOJ – have been nominated but not confirmed.

That has slowed but not stopped Sessions’ efforts to rollback basic rights. He’s reversed the Justice Department’s position of challenging voter identification laws; he deems the Voting Rights Act too “intrusive.” Now the DOJ will intervene in favor of states that pass discriminatory measures to restrict access to the ballot. The right to vote – the fundamental right of a democracy – will now depend on the willingness of judges to stand up for the truth, as U.S. District Court Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos did in ignoring the DOJ intervention and ruling that the Texas ID law was “passed, at least in part, with a discriminatory purpose.”

Sessions has issued orders to revive the old, failed war on drugs. The promising bipartisan efforts to reform sentencing provisions to end the mass incarceration of nonviolent drug offenders are to be abandoned. Sessions wants to revive private prisons and insure them a steady stream of prisoners. People of color, particularly young African American men, will be the greatest victims of this injustice." [Source] 

And let's not forget why Sessions had to recuse himself in the first place. He lied to congress under oath about his contacts with the Russians. Think about that for a minute. The chief law enforcement officer in our country lied to congress under oath!

Sadly, I am afraid it's only going to get worse from here, because racists and those meaning to roll back gains in civil rights are becoming more emboldened, and they are acting in ways that hark back to a time when people of color were second class citizens. This is not the time to have an attorney general in office who sympathizes with those of that ilk.

Yes, we have to pay attention to trump and all that he is doing, but remember, it's just as important to watch the man he put in charge of deciding what is just and what isn't as well.

Yes, your paranoia about this was obvious in the last 2 posts.  You're afraid that the whole system of preferences and set-asides which sustains you against actual Americans who are better than you is about to be removed.

You've got Jamaica just a plane ride away, what are you worried about?  The ones who really ought to be afraid are the gang-bangers who may soon find themselves serving their prison terms in an open-air facility outside Monrovia, as a cost-saving measure of course.  We'll let them wander away if they want, and add time to their terms for "escape" so they never, ever get to come back.

Assuming they survive, that is.  Liberians cut the hearts out of enemy generals and eat them.  But since you don't care about the dindu-on-dindu murders in Chimpcongo, Nawlins and just about anywhere else, it's a sure thing that it won't become an issue and we'll just be rid of them for good.

Yeah, it's gonna take a while to undo all of the ignorant bullshit that the creeps president four-year-old buggered the government with did. It always does, every time we throw an ignorant fit and elect a Republican.
Real people will suffer real harm, not all of which can be remedied.
Still, in time the country will move forward, despite the worst efforts of the dead-enders and pig-people who hate it so badly that they would rather destroy it than take part in it.
They will eventually get left behind with the Whigs and the Know-Nothings and the rest of the failed hangers-on to ideas that didn't work, couldn't work, and never will work.

And you'd have your unique line disappear into the sea of mud, like the Germans whose surnames still pop up in Haiti.  How appropriate that you name yourself after an extinct species.

Did those "anti-racists" of two centuries ago understand that they were condemning their posterity to an endless parade of stupidity and misery?  Hard to say, but nobody today can claim ignorance.

If you love the groid more than your family, the tingle of easy self-righteousness greater than the work of family and culture, go from us in peace.  We seek neither your moralizing nor your protests.  Crouch down and lick the Black fist that beats you, may your daughters' rapists not give them worse than mudshark sunglasses and mulatto bastards, and may history forget that you were ever our race.

Pity the Democrats, to the extent you can without bursting into hysterical laughter at their agony. America has thoroughly rejected them in every branch of the federal government plus out in the states, and on top of that they were utterly humiliated by the guy they all claimed was a complete moron. Which begs the question – what does that make the sanctimonious harpy he crushed in the Electoral College?

They still haven’t realized what’s going on. Their ego-driven drive to dominate normal people and shape us into New Socialist Nongendered Beings has blinded them to the bitter reality.

We think they, along with their minions in the media, in Hollywood, and on campus, suck.

They are baffled at our refusal to acknowledge their moral, intellectual, and political superiority. It doesn’t just compute.

Yeah, well compute this, geebos.

You look nuts. I mean wacko, zonked out, “Hey, that goldfish is firing a mind control laser at my brain and making me break dance” nuts.

But don’t stop. No, pump it up. You’re at “11,” and I say take it to “12.”

I usually try to steer away from picking on people's appearance, but sometimes I, too, succumb to pettiness when discussing truly despicable people.

If I had to pick the least attractive Republican couple, I'd rank the Gingrichs fairly high on the list. Neither slimy, lying Newt nor his wife number 3 are easy to look at. Callista has those scary eyes that make me think she'd come at you with an axe at the slightest provocation.

I guess it probably doesn't matter much whom the administration sends as an envoy to the Vatican. The pope despises Trump and says he's not a real Christian, and nothing is likely to alter his opinion on the subject.

Brigade Fifteen said...

"Posters up in LA calling for Maxine Waters to be impeached! Ha ha ha dumbass, you can't impeach a congressperson."

You can't technically "impeach" a congressperson, but you can expel them, which I'm sure is all the idiot protesters want. This requires a 2/3rds vote in the House, though, and the GOP only has a slight majority, so they can't do it, in any case.

Although if they somehow were able to expel Maxine Waters and did so, purely out of spite because she says mean things about Trump, all hell would break lose, in the black community and generally!

Trump never met a conspiracy theory he didn't like.

How Donald Trump Became Conspiracy Theorist in Chief

Trump genuinely believes global warming is a hoax, vaccines cause autism, and all sorts of crackpot, racist theories on crime and terroism. He's personally appeared on Alex Jones' crazy show. He was the loudest cheerleader for birtherism, for crying out loud.

Most Republican politicians understand perfectly that their base are clueless sheep who subscribe to fact-free, crank ideas concocted by unscrupulous charlatans, and they just try and use this to their advantage.

Trump, on the other hand, actually believes all this shit, and goes out of his way to HIRE the charlatans. This is the first time we've got one of the Fox News-watching rubes sitting in the White House and trying to make policy based on the outrageous lies.

Frightening.

Back when wingnuts lied their way into taking over congress again in 2010, they claimed they were going to drain the swamp and started with Ms Waters and she is still here. They threw all kinds of shit at her and nothing would stick because wingnuts are failures at convictions and principles and morals and civility, but, they sure can rant and rave while getting nothing done and then lying about it.

Bill Clinton had sex with a blue dress and that is all the evidence proved. Having sex with a blue dress, dear wingnut dummies, is not an impeachable offense-even for a Dem.

1. Global warming is a hoax
2. Sweden just stopped mandatory vaccines due to concerns about a link to autism.
(BTW, the evidence for vaccine-induced autism is actually stronger than the evidence for anthropogenic global warming)
3. Statistics that show blacks are orders of magnitude more likely to commit violent crime or that 90% of the terrorism experienced globally is inspired by Islam are actually not "crackpot, racist theories", rather these are known to the scientifically literate as "facts".

So president four-year-old's Muslim ban isn't having a good day in court:

"Judge Hawkins asked:

Has the president ever disavowed his campaign statements? Has he ever stood up and said, I said before I wanted to ban all members of the Islamic faith from entering the united states of America, I was wrong. I've consulted with lawyers and I'm now addressing it simply to security needs. Has he ever said anything approaching that?"

Has a chipmunk ever written a novel? Does calling them by other names make lies something besides lies?

No. No, he hasn't done anything remotely like that, because that would require him to admit that he's WRONG, and he can't do that, no matter how much evidence you poke into his eye and set on fire.
This can be the weakness we stomp him into the dirt with. He's obviously way in over his head and can't tell shit from shinola, and won't listen to anyone sane who tries to help him refrain from treading on his penis again, or even get him to change out of his golf shoes beforehand, so it's sort of inevitable that he goes down.
We just have to make sure that he splatters when he hits.

Sweden just voted down mandatory vaccinations because it violates citizen's constitutional rights. Has nothing to do with autism

Sweden’s Parliament just rejected 7 motions that would have promoted forced vaccinations. The Swedish Parliament decided forced vaccination policies are contrary to their citizens’ constitutional rights.

"Sweden just voted down mandatory vaccinations because it violates citizen's constitutional rights. Has nothing to do with autism"

That's a bad decision, but it's not a bad decision that's based on ignoring science and going with conspiracy theories.

Balancing individual rights against the collective security of the community will always be a difficult struggle. (In this case, the insistence on individual choice only serves to enable the conspiracy cranks and endangers everyone else in an effort to protect their right to be dumb.)

You accept that she's stupid and corrupt without batting an eye.  I bet she's quite a bit dirtier than Corrine Brown, just a bit more canny.

This is why Black people should not have the vote.  You generate corrupt, dysfunctional government almost instantaneously by electing people you think will grab goodies and give some to you.

Black voter turnout fell in 2016, even as a record number of Americans cast ballots

Huh. Weird. Could part of this have been due to, I dunno, Republican voter suppression schemes? *scratches chin*

Fortunately, we've got crusading Attorney General Jeff Sessions on the case. I'm sure he'll put on his cape and fly right to the rescue.

Oh wait ...

FYI, Jeff "Leniency Is For Pussies" Sessions also announced new DOJ guidelines for federal prosecutors, telling them to always charge defendants with the most serious possible charge that could conceivably succeed in court.

Yay, more people in prison! Just what our country needs, as the place that already has the highest incarceration rate on the planet.

In keeping with the conservatives' policy to dictate from Washington as little as possible, Mr. Sessions would have done better to just remove Mr. Obama's directive, and NOT replace it with another.

It was a Democrat voter suppression scheme:  no Black faces on the ballot.  You can blame Hitlery for that.
