Fake News Plays Race and Gender Cards After Sessions Triumph

Published

on

The left has resorted to playing race and gender cards in an attempt to distract the public after their stunning humiliation during Jeff Sessions’ testimony before the Senate on Tuesday.

In the midst of Senator Kamala Harris badgering Sessions and not allowing him to respond to her rapid-fire questions, Senator John McCain stopped her to moderate. Harris was asking about a “policy” that allows the President of the United States to have some privileges when it comes to disclosing confidential communications. Harris kept interrupting Sessions while he tried to explain to her the basic constitutional principle, which he practiced in his years as a U.S. Attorney.

“Is that policy in writing somewhere?” Harris asked.

“I think so,” Sessions responded to the silly question.

“Did you not consult it before you came before this committee knowing we would ask you questions about it?” Harris demanded.

“We talked about it. The policy —” Sessions began.

Harris interrupted, saying “did you ask that it be shown to you?”

“The policy is based on the principle that the president —” Sessions began, once again.

“Sir, I’m not asking about the principle,” Harris once again interrupted.

“I’m unable to answer the questions,” Sessions asserted, as Harris kept speaking over him.

“You would rely on that policy; did you not ask your staff to show you the policy that would be the basis for you refusing to answer the majority of questions that have been asked to you —” Harris ranted, before McCain jumped in to assert that the witness should be allowed to answer the question.

Senator Richard Burr, the chairman of the committee, then interjected and instructed Harris to allow Sessions to answer the question.

The Left quickly shifted tactics.

The internet promptly exploded with outrage over a white man daring to interrupt a woman of color — who was interrupting and speaking over someone else.

“Why do Republican senators only interrupt when Kamala Harris is asking questions? A black woman can’t question a white attorney general?” Keith Boykin of CNN absurdly tweeted.

Once Sessions was finally allowed to speak, he explained to the Senator the concept of a president having classified privileges.

“We talked about it. And we talked about the real principle at stake is one that I have some appreciation towards, having spent 15 years in the Department of Justice, 12 as United States attorney, and that principle is that the Constitution provides the head of the executive branch certain privileges. And that members — one of them is, confidentiality of communications — and it is improper for agents of any of the departments in the executive branch to waive that privilege without a clear approval…” Sessions explained.

Harris interrupted once again at this point, addressing the chairman.

“Of the president,” Sessions continued.

Harris played victim last week as well, after being scolded in a similar fashion for not allowing Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein to answer the questions she was asking him.

Instead of celebrating rudeness, perhaps the Democratic Party should give their politicians a refresher course on manners. Isn’t expecting and celebrating undignified behavior from Harris, which they loudly condemn from white men, a soft bigotry of low expectations?

Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

Another victory for the war party.

Published

on

Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.

The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.

The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.

Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.

“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.

“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.

“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”

The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.

“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.

“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.

The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
