Published

on

The U.S Senate voted to invoke cloture on William Barr’s nomination for Attorney General on Tuesday by a comfortable margin of 55-44. The vote sets Barr up to be confirmed.

Rand Paul voted no on cloture, citing Barr’s stances on government surveillance and the Fourth Amendment. Democrats Kyrsten Sinema, Doug Jones, and Joe Manchin voted yes, suggesting a strong possibility they’ll go on to vote yes for Barr’s final confirmation vote.

The vote will likely be held later this week.

Barr has previously served as U.S Attorney General in the administration of George H.W Bush. His connection to the Bush family has been a cause for concern among some Trump supporters and conservatives, but there’s also cause for optimism upon examining his track record.

Barr has supported Jeff Session’s asylum and immigration law reforms, which are crucial to deterring illegal migration. Center for Immigration Studies Director Mark Krikorian told Big League Politics that Barr’s track record on the issue in the first Bush administration was good, describing himself as cautiously optimistic.

Barr’s potential confirmation also could implement an Attorney General fully independent of the Mueller-Russia probe. Jeff Sessions recused himself of any oversight of Robert Mueller’s investigation, allowing the former FBI director to run wild with what many have called prosecutorial misconduct.

Barr has been critical of the Mueller probe’s open-ended and overtly political investigation, describing a need for appropriate law enforcement oversight of the operation. He warned that Mueller risked “taking on the look of an entirely political operation to overthrow the president.

Barr would take over for current interim Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.

PATHETIC: Republican Senators Propose Replacing ‘Columbus Day’ with ‘Juneteenth’ as National Holiday

With Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?

Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and James Lankford (R-OK) have proposed a legislative amendment that would replace “Columbus Day” as a federal holiday with “Juneteenth,” in another capitulation to the far-left mob.

Johnson and Lankford proposed the amendment to legislation proposed by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) that would make Juneteenth into a national holiday. The lawmakers felt the bill did not go far enough in virtue-signaling for liberals so they decided to tack on their proposed amendment.

The proposal would amend Section 6103(a) of title 5, United States Code by making June 19th an annual federal holiday, and striking Columbus Day, which takes place every second Monday in October, from the record. Juneteenth refers to the date that a town’s slaves learned they were freed, and was not celebrated much outside of Texas until this year.

Black Lives Matter (BLM) terrorists have pushed Juneteenth in order to guilt white people regarding their supposed role in the enslavement of blacks. It goes along with the communist tropes of structural racism and white privilege that are regularly used to attack the Constitution and rule of law.

Big League Politics has reported about the ideological underpinnings of the BLM terror movement, including its Marxist founders and racist pseudo-history writers.

“We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and [BLM co-founder Alicia Garza] in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists,” said BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors.

“We are super versed on all sorts of ideological theories, and I think that what we really try to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” she added.

“[The whites] lasting monument was the destruction and enslavement of two races of people,” wrote Nikole Hannah-Jones, whose erroneous “1619 Project” won her a Pulitzer Prize.

“The descendants of these savage people pump drugs and guns into the Black community, pack Black people into the squalor of segregated urban ghettos and continue to be bloodsuckers in our community,” Hannah-Jones added.

BLM’s official website confirms that the movement is focused “on issues concerning racial injustice, police brutality, criminal justice reform, Black immigration, economic injustice, LGBTQIA+ and human rights, environmental injustice, access to healthcare, access to quality education, and voting rights and suppression.”

Johnson, Lankford, and other Republican cowards are appeasing the likes of these people as they wage a cultural revolution to destroy America. These Benedict Arnolds will be remembered by history in a worse light than the Marxists for folding at a time when strong leadership was needed the most.
