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.
Ostentatiously disrespectful to the black woman on the committee.

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.
What is it about Kamala Harris that makes her the only Senator Republicans interrupt at every hearing?

They can't stand Sen. Harris
1. She's Black
2. She's a Woman
3. She's Black
Speaking to a white man like that

Kamala Harris has once again exposed the intense fear GOP misogynists have of an intelligent, progressive black women. #SessionsHearing

“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.

Kamala Harris is Jeff Sessions' worst nightmare: a black woman in a position of authority. #ShePersisted

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?
‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’
This is what real conservative leadership is all about.
Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.
Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:
Each risked his life to expose the crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State against the American people.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) November 27, 2020
Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.
“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.
“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”
Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.
Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.
One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”
AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”
… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.
Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
