Former Senator and Attorney General Jeff Sessions is set to announce his campaign to retake his old Alabama U.S. Senate seat, according to reporting from the Hill.

Sessions represented Alabama in the Senate from 1997 to 2017 and is still widely popular in his state. He left office to serve in the Trump administration as Attorney General.

Sessions was one of the first national political figures to endorse Donald Trump during his historical 2016 Presidential campaign. He was known widely as one of the most prolific immigration patriots in Congress during his tenure, opposing globalist amnesty efforts and quite possibly being instrumental to preventing their passage into law.

The former federal prosecutor and Alabama AG has been mulling a potential campaign to retake his old seat from Doug Jones for a few months. Jones snatched the seat in a turbulent election in which he faced Roy Moore.

The deadline to file for the Alabama Senate primary is Friday. Sessions would face competition for the Republican nomination from Rep. Bradley Byrne and Alabama football coach Tommy Tuberville.

Trump supporters less than thrilled with the corrupt investigations at the Department of Justice during his tenure were reasonably displeased. The President lost faith in Sessions as Attorney General, incensed with the partisan witch hunt operations conducted in an effort to slander him at his department.

But neither the President nor true America First conservatives should forget Sessions’ stellar track record as a U.S. Senator, in which he consistently fought for the interests of working-class and patriotic Americans against those who sought to undermine them with a tidal wave of mass immigration and outsourcing.

Sessions was the only Senator to receive a grade of A+ from NumbersUSA, an immigration watchdog organization that monitors federal policy. He was known for his willingness not only to battle massive amnesty programs for illegals, but also to fight back against attempts by big corporations to import millions of workers for cheap labor as legal immigrants.

Sessions famously took what he called the “cosmopolitan elite” to task in a 2014 speech known as “The Masters of the Universe.”

Despite their contentious relationship, Sessions has made it clear that he still supports President Donald Trump and the America First vision he championed as a candidate. It comes as a disappointment to many Trump supporters to see true America First Republicans such as Sessions fall out with the President, as neoconservative entryists infiltrate the administration with ease.

Real America First conservatives should take account of the big picture, recounting Sessions’ contributions to the movement over decades instead of writing it off on the basis his rocky tenure as AG.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
