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.

Obama Reportedly Said Pete Buttigieg Too ‘Gay’ and ‘Short’ to be President

Tell it like it is, Barack!

Former president Barack Hussein Obama reportedly said that former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was too “gay” and too “short” to be a serious presidential contender during the midst of the 2020 presidential race.

Buttigieg, who ran for president in 2020 and surprisingly won the Iowa caucus, is now the Transportation Secretary under President-imposed Joe Biden. He is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party due to his homosexual lifestyle, which includes being gay married to a husband, but Obama is apparently a doubter.

Obama reportedly made his remarks while addressing a group of black Democrat donors in Oct. 2019 as he was attempting to exert his influence over the process. The revelation comes from a new book authored by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen titled, Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.

At the time, Obama was apparently supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. The excerpt from the book, which includes various pot shots made by Obama toward Buttigieg, reads as follows:

When he was asked to return to the original question on his advice, Obama said he liked Buttigieg, a rising talent who’d worked on his own campaign. But despite his affinity for the South Bend mayor, he rattled off a list of reasons why Buttigieg couldn’t win. 

“He’s thirty- eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself — ” big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter. 

Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.

It goes without saying that any conservative who made similar remarks would be pilloried by the fake news media. Obama will get a pass, although the comments may make the former president’s relationship with the former mayor strained as Buttigieg climbs up the political ladder undeservedly due solely to identity politics.
