Time to fire Sessions
By Michael Oberndorf

When President Donald "The Hammer" Trump named Republican Senator Jeff Sessions to be his Attorney General, many Americans thought, "At last!" A tough, honest conservative running what had become popularly known as the Injustice Department would end the lawlessness and corruption of the Holder/Lynch years. How disappointing that his first act was to recuse himself from the phony Trump/Russia Collusion "investigation." Perhaps "shocking" would be a more accurate descriptor, since from the start, it was obvious that this was a Democrat sham/scam, aimed at nullifying Trump's totally legitimate election win.

However, Trump had promised to "drain the swamp" and Sessions surely was not one of the swamp denizens. And yet...

The list of unprosecuted legal outrages, euphemistically called "scandals" by the Inside-the Beltway oligarchy and the Ministry of Leftist Propaganda, aka, the "mainstream" media, has grown to mind-boggling proportions:
  • The Hillary Clinton email conspiracy and attendant multiple violations of federal laws

  • The Clinton Foundation pay-for-play and money laundering

  • Hillary's Uranium One deal with the Russians

  • The totally phony Trump/Russian "Dossier" and ALL the myriad criminal acts involving then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the FBI, and various other government agencies and management personnel

  • The rigging of the Democrat primaries against Bernie Sanders

  • The massive, documented voter fraud committed by the Democrats in multiple states,
and left over from the incredibly criminally corrupt Obama administration,
  • Benghazi and Libya

  • The IRS targeting of conservatives

  • Fast and Furious and the criminal Contempt of Congress charge against then-Attorney General Eric Holder

  • Then-Attorney General Eric Holder's selective refusal to prosecute black people
The list could be expanded, but we are limited by space and I'm sure you get the point.

While Sessions seems to have completely, and pointedly ignored the "scandals" on the list, he has made some rather limp-wristed gestures toward stepping up dealing with illegal immigrants by increasing arrests by the Border Patrol and ICE, but the overrunning of America still goes on. The most significant thing he appears to have done is started to go after the State of California for blatant, massive, and intentional violations of federal immigration law. Sanctuary state? This is akin to secession. We should be sending in the troops. And what of the dozens of cities and towns – virtually ALL run by seditious Democrats – that have totally violated the law and the Constitution by unilaterally declaring themselves "sanctuary" cities? Why has Sessions allowed them to become safe havens and hiding places for murderers, rapists, child molesters, drug smugglers and dealers, thieves, and gangs like MS 13?

President Trump was savagely attacked and his Voter Fraud Commission stonewalled by both Republican and Democrat secretaries of state when he charged that there was massive voter fraud in the 2016 elections. But it's recently been reported that the Public Interest Legal Foundation has discovered, via a lawsuit against the State of Pennsylvania, that around 100,000 "non-citizens" were registered to vote there (https://allenbwest.americanewscentral.com/2018/03/06/lawsuit-reveals-democrats-getting-non-citizens-vote-worse-thought/?utm_source=allen). Yet, when you do a search for "voter fraud," all get are cover-up stories from hard-left "news" – read: lies and propaganda – sites claiming no evidence at all for any vote fraud, anywhere, ever, amen. Democrats and their precursors invented voter fraud, and over the years have made it into a science. However, like most leftist science, the flaws in it are obvious to anyone who probes even slightly below the surface. It's a pretty safe bet, for instance, that the "blue surge" trumpeted by the media in the Texas primaries was nearly all illegal aliens, illegally registered as Democrats, illegally voting. And the reality is that Cruz still got way more votes that all of the Democrats, combined.

So, the question is, why has the Justice Department, run by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, done zip, zero, nada, nunca, goose egg, nothing, to prosecute the blatantly obvious, felonious criminal violations of multiple federal laws, and the people who committed them? And why, one might also ask, has President Trump put up with this?

Donald "The Hammer" Trump has done an incredible job of standing up to the Ministry of Leftist Propaganda, of firing up the economy, of bolstering the military, of restoring respect for America abroad. He has done a less than stellar job of draining the swamp.

Mr. Trump needs, very much, to get uncompromisingly tough with the "Deep State," the "resistance" within the upper levels of the civil service, especially within the Senior Executive Service and management employees, GS-13 through GS-15. Government is infested with leftists who daily violate their oaths that "...I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same...," and some who appear to give aid and comfort to our enemies. They need to be gone. Immediately. Period.

As for the totally ineffectual, apparently feckless Jeff Sessions, a bent nail to The Donald's hammer, a pink slip is definitely in order. Immediately. Period.
