The manipulative MAN behind the “Women’s March”

wmsMarch-1 
Considering the significant numbers of people, and the multiple locations involved, we’d be delusional to believe that yesterday’s massive women’s march was a grassroots effort (as many in the mainstream media portrayed it). On the contrary, it was funded by upwards of 500 different groups, all of which fall under the general umbrella of progressive leftism.
 
I don’t know what dollar amounts were required to qualify as a “Premier Partner” of the event but there were two of them – “Premiers” that is: Planned Parenthood (which explains why pro-life participants weren’t welcome – although the Satanists showed up in Seattle) and the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council). Here’s a sampling of the rest:
 
• Greenpeace
• SEIU
• Southern Poverty Law Center
• American Atheists
• GLAAD
• Occupy Wall Street
• MoveOn.org
• EMILY’s List
• Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)
• Muslim Community Network
• Communist Party USA

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
When the Tea Party sprang up in early 2009, it was a grassroots movement of Americans fed up with getting the cold shoulder from the Washington ruling class; with being over-taxed with little or nothing to say about where the money went. It wasn’t until months later that various groups began forming to provide organization and direction (groups, incidentally, which were promptly attacked by Obama’s partisan IRS). The Women’s March on Washington, despite being touted as a “huge, spontaneous groundswell,” (Vox) was astroturfed from beginning to end.
 

In a refreshingly honest account in the New York Times, Asra O. Nomani exposes the funding behind the spontaneity. As she looked over the list of March “partners” she recognized an obvious link behind several dozen of the groups: backing from that maestro of mayhem, global elitist George Soros and his Open Society Foundations (whose main goal is to disrupt, divide and conquer the civil society) ~
 
georgeSoros-quote

Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s “partners,” including (both of the “Premier Partners”) Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies.
 
The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan MoveOn.org (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”). Other Soros grantees who are “partners” in the march are the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.

 

Of course the majority of the Women’s March participants seemed unaware or unconcerned about the event’s shady underpinnings. Here’s an illustrative video from Conservative Review ~
 

[VIEWER ADVISORY- there was no lack of vulgarity at this progressive event]

Sidebar: Could they come up with a more oxymoronic statement – “Women’s Rights are Human Rights”? “Womens’ Rights” is code for abortion-on-demand. So how is killing an unborn human “Human Rights?”

 

Um….. ok :roll:

wmsMarch-2 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yesterday’s Soros-funded collection of malcontents was basically united in one mission – opposition to America’s 45th president. As Nomani wrote ~

… I know — and most of America knows — (what) the organizers of the march haven’t put into their manifesto: the march really isn’t a “women’s march.” It’s a march for women who are anti-Trump […]
 
Much like post-election protests, which included a sign, “Kill Trump,” were not “spontaneous,” as reported by some media outlets, the “Women’s March” is an extension of strategic identity politics that has so fractured America today, from campuses to communities. On the left or the right, it’s wrong. But, with the inauguration, we know the politics. With the march, “women” have been appropriated for a clearly anti-Trump day.

 

So to all my dear, who-are-we-to-judge, sincere-but-woefully-misguided friends and family – before you naively embrace the next brave new, righteous protest event – PLEASE take the time to discover who’s behind all the social justice, feel-good propaganda they’re peddling.

 

I have serious reservations about Donald Trump’s ability to make America great again. But I know for certain that George Soros would make it infinitely worse.

Soros and Other Far Leftists Instigate Revolution Against Trump ~ Soros believes his vision of an “open society” trumps self-government ~

George Soros does not believe in the democratic process. He believes in imposing his definition of an “open” society, which he sees as ultimately a borderless world run by so-called enlightened progressives. He has contempt for ordinary people engaging in the process of self-government, particularly whenever the result is not to his liking. Four years ago, Soros predicted that riots would break out in the streets. Now that the Left’s preferred candidate did not win the 2016 presidential election, Soros and his other left wing allies may be on their way to make his prophecy come true.

So far so good

Given the unappealing options in the election last November, I really didn’t have a choice but to vote for the lesser of two undesirables: Donald Trump. Not with unbridled enthusiasm mind you – but I’ve never voted for a lying, elitist socialist and wasn’t about to start now.
 

That said, so far – in the few short hours he’s been president – I’m pleasantly surprised with Mr. Trump. His inaugural remarks were short, straightforward and patriotic. Unlike most of his predecessor’s speeches, the words “I” and “me” were used sparingly. Most encouraging, he acknowledged that “we-the-people” are supposed to be in charge of our government. How refreshing!
 
trump-sworn-in 
Beyond the rhetoric however, since he’s never before held public office, it’s way too early to tell what a Trump presidency will look like. Matthew Continetti writing at the Free Beacon gives us some predictions based on what we’ve seen so far ~

Donald Trump’s inaugural address was a stirring call for national unity and a declaration of war against the establishment in Washington, D.C. The speech was vintage Trump: politically incorrect, critical of both parties, amped up, biting, strongly delivered, and wildly ambitious. Anyone who believed Trump would change his beliefs or style when he assumed the office of the presidency was proven wrong. He’s not going to change. And he’s not going to let up.
 
Trump espoused his worldview in remarkably few words. He is a vituperative critic of the post-Cold War international system. Where the architects of that system see it as a bulwark of stability and global prosperity, Trump sees it as diminishing the United States in favor of foreign countries and an international class of wealthy political and financial elites. Washington has been serving its own interests, he said, and not the people’s. That ends now. His America will turn inward, focusing on domestic stability, education, infrastructure, and jobs. The one exception will be the fight against Islamic terrorism, where Trump is prepared to join with autocracies in pursuit of common goals.

 

So who knows? The next few months should be very interesting. One thing’s for certain, unlike the last POTUS, this one is proud to represent America.
 

Watching the parade this afternoon, Trump seemed visibly moved several times at the deference and respect shown him by the passing military contingents, perhaps realizing for the first time the awesome responsibility that comes with being commander-in-chief. [I never once saw that reaction in Barack Obama by the way, a man whose last action in office – pardoning PFC Manning for treason – was a slap in the face to every member of the military, past and present.]
 
Best wishes Mr. President. And God bless America.

Adios Mr. Audacious. Thanks for nothing

barack&moochelle 
Despite whatever glossy patina the Left will eventually use to paint over the Obama legacy, the grimy, grubby truth will always be indelible. We are an uglier, angrier, more indebted and more divided nation than we’ve ever been. And we have a long, long way to go before we can recover all that we’ve lost to hopeless change.
 
Our first biracial president, a man with the unique potential to bring Americans of all shades of skin pigmentation together, instead reopened new wounds of prejudice that had mostly healed years ago. He managed to alienate law enforcement by pretending they’re all targeting blacks (even the black officers!) and accusing them of “acting stupidly.” He insulted those of us who put God’s word above the ever-changing social mores of contemporary society, scoffing at traditional marriage proponents (though he was deceitful enough to pose as a Christian to get elected). He mocked Second Amendment supporters and barely concealed his lack of respect for our military (And now has totally betrayed them with the pardon of “Chelsea” Manning).

 

Dennis Prager, long a voice of measured, thoughtful commentary, lamented a couple months ago that he had to admit Barack Obama was in fact the president who has done the most damage ~

I have never written or broadcast that our country was being seriously damaged by a president. So it is with great sadness that I write that President Barack Obama has done and continues to do major damage to America. The only question is whether this can ever be undone.

 
Prager goes on to list the various ways that America – as well as the wider world – is in significantly worse shape than it was eight long years ago ~

• He has overseen the weakest recovery from a recession in modern American history.
 
• He has mired the country in unprecedented levels of debt: about $6.5 trillion — that is 6,500 billion — in five years (this after calling his predecessor “unpatriotic” for adding nearly $5 trillion in eight years). Total national debt is rapidly approaching 20 trillion
 
• He has fashioned a country in which more Americans now receive government aid — means-tested, let alone non-means-tested — than work full-time.
 
• He has no method of paying for this debt other than printing more money — thereby surreptitiously taxing everyone through inflation, including the poor he claims to be helping, and cheapening the dollar to the point that some countries are talking about another reserve currency — and saddling the next generations with enormous debts.
 
• Among presidents in modern American history, he has also been a uniquely divisive force. It began with his forcing Obamacare through Congress — the only major legislation in American history to be passed with no votes from the opposition party.
 
• With his 2,500-page Affordable Care Act he has made it impossible for hundreds of thousands, soon millions, of Americans to keep their individual or employer-sponsored group health insurance; he has stymied American medical innovation with an utterly destructive tax on medical devices; and he has caused hundreds of thousands of workers to lose full-time jobs because of the health-care costs imposed by Obamacare on employers.
 
ObamasLegacy 
• His Internal Revenue Service used its unparalleled power to stymie political dissent. No one has been held accountable.
 
• Though he has had a unique opportunity to do so, he has not only not helped heal racial tensions, he has exacerbated them. His intrusions into the Trayvon Martin affair (“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”) and into the confrontation between a white police officer and a black Harvard professor (the police “acted stupidly”) were unwarranted, irresponsible, demagogic, and, most of all, divisive.
 
• He has also divided the country by economic class, using classic Marxist language against “the rich” and “corporate profits.”
 
• Regarding America in the world, he has been, if possible, even more damaging. The United States is at its weakest, has fewer allies, and has less military and diplomatic influence than at any time since before World War II.
 
• One wonders if there is a remaining ally nation that trusts him. And worse, no American enemy fears him. If you are a free movement (the democratic Iranian and Syrian oppositions) or a free country (Israel), you have little or no reason to believe that you have a steadfast ally in the United States.
 
• Even non-democratic allies no longer trust America. Barack Obama has alienated our most important and longest standing Arab allies, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Both the anti–Muslim Brotherhood and the anti-Iran Arab states have lost respect for him.

 
Oh, and don’t forget the illegal immigrant invasion and lack of any serious border security.

~~~~~~~~~~~

 
Barack Hussein Obama audaciously promised that he was going to fundamentally transform the country. So those of us who took him at his book title aren’t surprised by the current, dismal, divided state of America. We’re just saddened, and disheartened at the prospect of trying to recover all that’s been stolen, lost or wrecked in the last eight years.

The new faces of domestic terrorism

Here’s another one of those stories the mainstream media won’t touch with a ten-foot pole. According to them – without a speck of credible evidence – the Tea Party was a bunch of racsit-sexist-bigot-homophobe crazies, liable to grab their guns and start another revolution any second. The network news producers don’t want to know about next-gen Bill Ayers types – real domestic terrorists. Leftist radicals plotting anarchy and insurrection apparently aren’t worthy of coverage (- even if American lives are at risk?!).

 
Since the mainstreams have abdicated their responsibility as objective journalists, we have to rely on alternative media sources like self-described “gonzo-journalist” James O’Keefe to reveal the truth. And folks, this is awfully scary truth…
 

 

In this video, Project Veritas investigators uncover a group known as the DC Anti-fascist Coalition plotting to disrupt President-Elect Donald Trump’s inauguration by deploying butyric acid at the National Press Club during the Deploraball event scheduled for January 19th.
 
The meeting, captured on hidden camera, was held at Comet Ping Pong, a DC pizza restaurant that is better known as the location of the Pizzagate controversy. The coalition members discuss the steps they would need to take to halt the Deploraball event. Project Veritas notified the FBI, Secret Service and DC Metro Police of the content of this video prior to its release.

 
Project Veritas just released another video as I was writing this ~ Hidden-camera Investigation Exposes Plans to Chain Trains and Shut Down DC During Trump Inauguration ~

Clemson’s divine victory

Many Christians felt that they saw the hand of God influencing the presidential election last November. After 8 years of soul-sucking progressive secularism trying to undermine our civil society, purge every vestige of religion from the public square, and increase dependence on an ever-expanding government, it is comforting to believe that the good Lord finally took pity on us and gave us a leader who – imperfect as he may be – at least promises to reverse course long enough to stall America’s eventual demise ~

“I think maybe God has allowed Donald Trump to win this election to protect this nation for the next few years by giving maybe an opportunity to have some good judges,” (Franklin) Graham, who did not endorse either Trump of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton during the election, contended.
 trump-handofGod

 
Well, maybe so… maybe no. But unquestionably there are times when God does intervene and influence human events here on earth. Generally His sovereign intervention is only clear in retrospect, but sometimes it’s evident immediately. I believe last Sunday’s Clemson victory over the University of Alabama was one of those times. Seriously. The Tigers certainly thought so.

 
In case you missed it, it really was one of the best college football games ever; the Clemson Tigers scored in the last second to upset the mighty Crimson Tide 35-31 ~ Clemson shocks Alabama to win first national title in 35 years.
 

Clemson2017NCAAchamps 
The team’s head coach, quarterback and the receiver who nabbed the final pass, all unabashedly gave credit for the win to the Almighty ~ ‘To God Be the Glory’: The Faith That Carried Clemson to Victory ~
 

Quarterback Deshaun Watson:

“I’m speechless right now, man. It’s what God want[ed]. He put us [here] for a reason,” he said. “I talked to one of my coaches and he said ‘It’s a movie and it’s going to end the right way. Just keep believing in God, and just believe in your teammates and everything’s gonna fall in place,’ and that’s what happened and now we’re national champs and it’s amazing!”

 
Head Coach Dabo Swinney:

“I said it out on the field and I’ll say it again. For me personally, only God can do this … there’s just no other explanation for me. It’s not anything to do with me. It’s God working through me and the staff and these players.

 
Wide receiver Hunter Renfrow:

“It’s almost like I got knocked out in the third quarter and this is just all a dream. And credit — I think my faith in God really got me through.” In a locker room interview, Renfrow added that winning the championship felt “unbelievable.” “Just glory to God. Thankful for everyone who … got me to this point.”

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But as impressive as their win over Alabama was, the Clemson football program’s 2014 defeat of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) intimidation game was even more so. Writing at National Review Online, David French explains how Coach Dabo Swinney defeated anti-Christian scolds ~

coachSwinney

On April 10, 2014, the FFRF faxed a letter to the office of Clemson’s general counsel in which it complained that “Christian worship seems interwoven into Clemson’s football program.” The FFRF demanded that Clemson — a public university — not only require Swinney to “cease” his allegedly unconstitutional religious activities but also that it “train” the coaching staff and “monitor their conduct going forwards.”
 
Specifically, the FFRF claimed that Swinney had invited a man named James Trapp to become a team chaplain and gave him access to the team for Bible studies. They also claimed that Swinney scheduled team devotionals and “organized transportation for coaches and players to ‘Church Days.’”
 
The FFRF claimed that even optional team religious events violated the Constitution, and that Swinney “sends a message of exclusion to those players on his team not in conformity with his personal religious beliefs.”

 
Normally colleges cave in to such targeted bullying from the anti-Christian FFRF. Clemson didn’t ~
 

Swinney held firm, and his university backed him. Swinney’s statement was a model of polite conviction. First, he outlined the three simple rules that every player must follow: “(1) Players must go to class, (2) they must give a good effort, and (3) they must be good citizens.” Next, he noted that he’s recruited players “of many faiths.” Then, he made the crucial point:
 
Recruiting is very personal. Recruits and their families want — and deserve — to know who you are as a person, not just what kind of coach you are. I try to be a good example to others, and I work hard to live my life according to my faith.

 
In other words, Swinney is a Christian, and he’s not going to hide that fact from recruits, their families, or the public.
 
For its part, the university made it known that there had been no complaints from athletes and that participation in religious activities was “purely voluntary.” The school went even further, declaring that the FFRF had “misconstrued important facts and made incorrect statements of the law.”
 
Swinney didn’t yield, the university didn’t yield, and more than a year later, Swinney’s message was clear:
 
We weren’t doing anything [wrong]. Ain’t nothing to change. . . . People have just got to be who they are, it’s that simple. We’ve never tried to force anything on anybody. Everybody who comes here to Clemson knows who we are as people.

Amen.
 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I truly believe that God guided Clemson to their NCAA championship as the means to reveal His influence in the lives of the Tiger players and coaches to a worldwide audience.
The Tigers believe it too :) ~

Watson summed it up in one last interview question on the field. The star quarterback was asked what he told his teammates when he led his offense back on the field after Alabama had regained the lead very late in the fourth quarter. “I walked up to my offensive line and I walked up to my receivers and I said, ‘Let’s be legendary. Let’s be great. God put us here for a reason.’”

International kangaroo court mocks God

In Paris today a kangaroo court consisting of representatives from 72 nations convened to presume to redraw the borders of the nation of Israel. Ostensibly referred to as a “peace conference” the gathering was really only about “peace” in the sense of Orwellian “NewSpeak” (i.e., Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength, War is Peace, etc.).
 

“Yahweh says ‘In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.'” (Joel 3:1-2)

 
It takes a special kind of ignorance – or arrogance – to challenge God’s authority. UN Resolution 2334 last month wasn’t outrageous enough. Now, in attempting to impose a two-state solution on the Israelis (without any input from them mind you!) these autocrats are essentially denying multiple realities. As Jordan Schachtel at Conservative Review writes, they must first ignore the hourly atrocities being committed throughout the Islamic world and Africa ~

Hundreds of thousands have been massacred in Syria and the entire continent of Europe is dealing with a refugee crisis. Iran supports global terror uprisings, and the Islamic State, al Qaeda, and other Sunni jihadi groups continue to slaughter innocents in droves.

 

And, in a barely-reported story last Sunday (Jan. 8th), at least 4 people were killed and 17 more injured when a terrorist plowed into a crowd at a bus stop in Jerusalem. As the Daily Caller noted: Media Blames Truck For Palestinian Terror Attack In Israel ~

When a Palestinian terrorist drove a truck into a crowd of Israeli soldiers Sunday morning the headlines from major media outlets pinned the blame squarely on the truck, avoiding headlining the story as a terrorist attack.

Also strangely missing from most news outlets was the fast that Hamas held a rally in Gaza to celebrate the attack (Such compassionate coexisters those “Palestinians”).

 
As I noted above, today’s Paris meeting was preceded by the UN’s surreal Resolution 2334 which as Guy Millière points out ~

… effectively sets the boundaries of a future Palestinian state. The resolution declares all of Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem — home to the Old City, the Western Wall and the Temple Mount — the most sacred place in Judaism — “occupied Palestinian territory,” and is a declaration of war against Israel […]
 
The declaration rejects any Jewish presence beyond the 1949 armistice lines — thereby instituting apartheid. It also praises the “Arab Peace Initiative,” which calls for returning of millions of so-called “refugees” to Israel, thus transforming Israel into an Arab Muslim state where a massacre of Jews could conveniently be organized.

 
Israel-land4peace 

Israel – especially Jerusalem – isn’t the UN’s to give away. It belongs to God, who reserved it for His chosen people ~

The connection of the Jewish people to Jerusalem, as their “eternal capital,” is not to be undone by votes in that most corrupt and corrupting of institutions, the U.N., where a powerful Muslim bloc holds sway.[…]
 
You do not have to be Jewish, however, to know that Jerusalem was the capital of the Jews for thousands of years, that King David and King Solomon really did exist, that the Western Wall and Temple Mount and the cemetery on the Mount of Olives all testify to the ancient Jewish presence, that there is considerable archeological evidence for both the First and Second Temples, and that Jerusalem is mentioned 349 times in the Jewish Bible (but not mentioned once in the Qur’an). The Jewish connection to Jerusalem is a matter, then, of history, not of faith.
 
Nor should the threats of Arabs and Muslims be allowed to sever that connection simply because they have become past masters at rewriting history, as recently demonstrated at UNESCO, in a resolution where the Muslim connection to Jerusalem was emphasized and the Jewish link to the Temple Mount was not even mentioned.

Source: Hugh Fitzgerald at Jihad Watch

 
Oddly enough, the Pope seems confused on this issue ~ Vatican opens Palestinian embassy ahead of critical summit in Paris ~

A Palestinian state would, like Gaza, be simply another jihad base from which “Palestinians” would launch new attacks against the State of Israel. That the Pope would validate it in this way is an unconscionable granting of the Catholic Church’s imprimatur both to the fictional “Palestinian people,” who were invented by the KGB and Yasir Arafat in the 1960s to counter the view of the tiny Jewish state surrounded by numerous gargantuan Arab states, and to the Palestinian jihad, which seeks a new genocide of the Jews, with “Palestinians” openly celebrating the murder of Israeli civilians.
 
The very “Palestinians” whose cause Pope Francis is aiding and abetting will, given the chance, oppress and subjugate the Christians in their domains as dhimmis, deprived of basic rights under Islamic law. In Israel, by contrast, Christians live in freedom. The Pope is betraying his own people.

 
I guess Francis missed the memo – at least the one in Genesis ~

I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.
~ Genesis 12:2-3

 
And then there’s Zechariah 14 ~

1. Behold, the day of the Lord is coming,
And your spoil will be divided in your midst.
For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem…
 
But the remnant of the city shall not be cut off from the city.
 
3. Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations,
as He fights in the day of battle.
4. And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives,
Which faces Jerusalem on the east,
And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two…

 

Lest you think God is joking about protecting Jerusalem – and all of Israel – from anti-Semitic forces, check out this video (from last month) ~ Israeli Soldiers: Hand of God Protected Them Through Pillar of Cloud During Battle with ISIS ~
 

 

“Peace” will definitely not break out as a result of today’s ludicrous declaration from a bunch of pompous, despotic diplomats. But the beginning of the end very well might…
Stay tuned.

I think Lipscomb is on to something. His hypothesis ties in well with this piece from Walter Williams ~

Progressives Think They Can Alter Reality. They’re Wrong. ~ Rather than deal with the real world as they find it (that is, as God created it) the Left somehow thinks if they pretend otherwise, the entire cosmos will alter itself to align with their vision of utopia. Walter Williams shares a few hard facts that shatter that fantasy.

Will Rex Tillerson’s background hurt him during his confirmation hearings? Probably not.

It’s Tillerson’s ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Islamist state of Qatar that are cause for concern.

Furthermore, as Mark Levin explains ~

Tillerson is wrong on the issues. He’s pro-Putin at a time when Russian aggression threatens the peace and stability of eastern Europe. He agrees with the Left on global warming at a time when the nation’s top diplomat needs to stand up to big international climate agreements.

Cory Booker’s ginormous credibility deficit

Eleven months ago, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) was such a great guy that it was truly an honor and blessing to work with him on legislation honoring civil rights “foot soldiers.” At least that’s how Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) felt last February ~
 

 

Flash forward to January 2017 and Senator Sessions’ confirmation hearing for the position of attorney general and suddenly Booker deems his collegue incapable of ensuring equal rights for all Americans. In an unprecedented move – one sitting senator testifying against another – Booker attacked Sessions’ character in a shameless display of partisanship ~

“The next attorney general must bring hope and healing to this country, and this demands a more courageous empathy than Sen. Sessions’ record demonstrates.” Booker said.
 
“If one is to be attorney general, they must be willing to continue the hallowed tradition in our country of fighting for justice for all, for equal justice for civil rights,” he continued.

 
Huh? I’m thinking he must be off his meds – or talking about some other Sen. Sessions. It certainly can’t be the one who desegregated schools in Alabama and got the death penalty for the head of the KKK.
 

On Wednesday Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) exposed Booker and his leftist cronies’ attack on Sessions for the ugly smear campaign it is ~

“It’s amazing to me that with a senator having cast 6,000 votes in the United States Senate, that we’re focused on a handful of policy differences. And somehow people are saying that those are dispositive of the qualifications of a person who we’ve served alongside of,” Cornyn said of such attempts […]
 
“Frankly,” the Texas senator continued, “the descriptions we’ve heard today are so wildly disparate that I would imagine, for people who didn’t know Senator Sessions and didn’t know his record as I do and as those who have served with him, it would be hard to reconcile.”

In addition, as Nate Madden at Conservative Review explains, the unwarranted criticisms are doubly invalid because they aren’t relevant to the position for which Sessions is being considered ~

It is the duty of a senator to vote against policies that he and his constituency view as bad; if he fails to do that, he won’t be back in the chamber after the next. If an attorney general fails to faithfully enforce standing law, he or she can always be impeached by Congress. That’s how it’s supposed to work. Trying to disqualify Sen. Jess Sessions for the latter, because he adequately did the former, is dishonest and pathetic.

 

As further evidence of Senator Booker’s partisan duplicity, as Nancy Flory reports at the Stream ~ Black Pastors Defend Sen. Sessions, Urge Senate to Confirm Him as Attorney General ~

Black pastors from Alabama and other states showed up to a Capitol Hill news conference Monday to support President-Elect Donald Trump’s Attorney General nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.). The Frederick Douglass Foundation and Family Research Council’s Watchmen on the Wall coordinated efforts to urge the U.S. Senate to confirm Sen. Sessions in the Attorney General role as nominated […]
 

“Americans are living in a toxic climate where the serious charge of racism is carelessly leveled against anyone with whom the left disagrees. We are here today to make it perfectly clear that this attack against Senator Jeff Sessions is baseless, and that he is more than qualified to be the next Attorney General.”
~ Rev. Dean Nelson

 
Finally, here’s a testimony from a guy who should have every reason to resent the senator from Alabama: Son of civil rights leader prosecuted by Sessions endorses the Senator. Albert Turner, Jr. has an admirable quality all Americans used to value – integrity ~

I have known Senator Sessions for many years, beginning with the voter fraud case in Perry County in which my parents were defendants. My differences in policy and ideology with him do not translate to personal malice. He is not a racist. As I have said before, at no time then or now has Jeff Sessions said anything derogatory about my family. He was a prosecutor at the Federal level with a job to do. He was presented with evidence by a local District Attorney that he relied on, and his office presented the case. That’s what a prosecutor does. I believe him when he says that he was simply doing his job.
 
I believe that he is someone with whom I, and others in the civil rights community can work if given the opportunity. I believe that he will listen, as he has in the past, to the concerns of my community. More than most I am very familiar with him. I believe he will be fair in his application of the law and the Constitution; as such I support his nomination to be the next Attorney General of the United States.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
So, with all due respect Senator Booker, we’re just not buying it. Senator Jeff Sessions can’t be a wonderful civil rights enthusiast one minute, and a dastardly racist the next. That sort of calculated duplicity is reserved for leftist lapdogs like yourself.

These elitists arrive at ceremonies at which people of like mind give each other awards for being like-minded. How can they identify with Americans who live paycheck to paycheck? Many hang out with left-wing politicians, who also live in their own fantasy world, as out of touch with real Americans as they are. These overrated actors, who are shadows compared to Hollywood’s Golden Age, seemingly believe they set the agenda for the nation. Anyone who has a different view is regarded as trespassing on their territory.
