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?

He Found His Spine: Vulnerable Senator Cory Gardner Vows to Support Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee

Gardner found his backbone.

Published

on

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has often been at odds with the Trump movement, being a favorite of the GOP establishment’s Senate Leadership Fund.

This is why his recent declaration that he will be supporting President Donald Trump’s choice to succeed the deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg is so surprising. He made the announcement in a Twitter post on Monday.

“When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how to best fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent,” Gardner said in his official statement.

“I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect the Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm,” he added.

The official statement can be seen here:

The president’s pick for the Supreme Court will certainly fit Gardner’s criteria. Trump has announced that he will be appointing a woman to the bench.

One top contender – Amy Comey Barrett – recently made a trip to the White House, as Big League Politics has reported:

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.

The Republicans have a great opportunity to score a major political victory and really stick it to the extreme Left with this expedited SCOTUS confirmation. The fact that a moderate like Gardner is on board is a great sign that the confirmation is likely to occur before November’s election.
