  • Sessions Vows ‘Emergency’ S. C. Battle … Slams ‘Activist Federal Judges’ For Anti-Trump Bias

    10/16/2018 11:29:26 AM PDT · by a little elbow grease · 39 replies ^ | 1016/18 | Kane
    Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday lit into federal judges for what he called a dramatic uptick in “outrageous” decisions threatening to interfere with the separation of powers by exposing internal White House deliberations. In a fiery speech to the conservative Heritage Foundation in Washington, Sessions warned that “once we go down this road in American government, there is no turning back.” He vowed to take “these discovery fights to the Supreme Court in emergency postures. … We intend to fight this, and we intend to win.” Sessions specifically singled out New York district court judge Jesse M. Furman, who...

    President Trump said Thursday that he supports prison reform and that Attorney General Jeff Sessions' opposition doesn't represent his administration's position. "If he doesn't [support reform], then he gets overruled by me. Because I make the decision, he doesn't," Trump said during a phone interview broadcast on "Fox and Friends." Sessions, an opponent of criminal justice reform, argues the pending First Step Act would make the country less safe, threatening one of the top priorities of presidential adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner.

    Is it me, or has Jeff went completely underground recently? He used to pop up every now and then with some worthless statement about pot or illegal immigration, but lately it seems he’s completely disappeared. Has he been spending his time on LinkedIn updating his resume? Getting ready for the day after elections? I’m worried for the old elf.
  • Lefty judge orders DOJ to give $28m, previously withheld for sanctuary city status, to California

    A left-wing federal judge with a history of ruling against the Trump administration ruled against it again Friday by revoking its right to enforce federal immigration laws in California and demanding it funnel a total $28 million in unpaid grant money to “sanctuary cities” like San Francisco. The ruling by William Orrick concerned a decision by Attorney General Jeff Sessions last year to revoke funding from so-called “sanctuary cities” unless they began abiding my federal immigration laws.

    On Thursday (September 27th) one of the 19 men arrested in connection with April 2014's Bunkerville Standoff near Nevada's Bundy ranch, Blaine Cooper, was sentenced in connection with his plea deal. Cooper was sentenced at US District Court in Las Vegas to 20 months in prison, the time he was held following his 2016 arrest. He is also facing three years of supervised release in connection with his Bunkerville and Oregon Standoff case plea. Cooper pled guilty to conspiracy and assault on a federal officer in connection with Bunkerville, a stituation where nobody harmed a hair on anybody else. However,...

    SAN FRANCISCO/NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced new limits on the ability of immigration judges to terminate deportation cases on Wednesday, the latest in a series of decisions to facilitate the removal of immigrants in the country illegally Unlike the federal judiciary system, U.S. immigration courts fall under the Department of Justice and the attorney general can rewrite opinions issued by the Board of Immigration Appeals. Sessions, a Republican former U.S. senator appointed by President Donald Trump, has been unusually active in this practice compared to his predecessors.

    The woman accusing President Trump’s United States Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of a “rape attempt” when the two were in high school previously signed a letter fighting Trump’s “Zero Tolerance” policy at the U.S.-Mexico border. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)—an open borders advocacy organization—letter was written and sent to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Attorney General Jeff Sessions in June. Christine Blasey Ford, a psychology professor, signed the ACLU letter as “Christine Blasey Ph.D. Psychologist,” signing off on statements that accused Trump of using southern border enforcement to “traumatize children” and claimed the Zero...

    AGJeff Sessions is telling Justice Department lawyers to push back against federal judges who have imposed nationwide injunctions against many of the Trump administration’s policies. "A number of such injunctions in recent years have brought to the fore 'the problem of judges acting outside the bounds of their authority' and granting relief that reaches far beyond the confines of the particular case or controversy before them,”.. adding, “Consistent with the longstanding position of the Ex. Branch under Administrations of both parties, the Dept.of Justice opposes the issuance of such nationwide injunctions.” In the memo, Sessions tells lawyers to remind the...

    CNN is reporting that top congressional Democrats are planning to take an unexpectedly soft line on new and potentially very damning information that has emerged about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Russia probe. Why? Because Democrats understand full well that Sessions, of all people, could end up being pivotal to preventing President Trump from covering up the findings of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation. It’s a complicated and interesting situation — and it’s unclear where it’s going to end up. A few days ago, the news broke that in a recent court filing, former Trump campaign adviser...

    CHICAGO (AP) - U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions told an event for Chicago police that heeding the advice of those he dubbed "radicals" when it comes to police policy results in higher rates of violent crime. The Chicago Tribune reports Sessions addressed an annual Chicago Police Memorial Foundation vigil held at Soldier Field late Wednesday. It honors police who died on duty. Sessions said law enforcement should set policy on crime-fighting. He said "the last thing" anyone should do is, in his words, "follow the protestations of anti-police radicals and those who have never walked a beat."

    President Trump claimed this week that he had never used the word “retarded” to describe Attorney General Jeff Sessions — or anyone else — in an attempt to rebut one of the details included in the forthcoming Bob Woodward book that paints a harrowing portrait of his presidency. Since then, video and transcripts have surfaced proving the president wrong. Trump’s claim about Sessions came in a Tuesday tweet, in which he wrote: “The already discredited Woodward book, so many lies and phony sources, has me calling Jeff Sessions ‘mentally retarded’ and ‘a dumb southerner.’ I said NEITHER, never used those...

    A Grand Jury has been impaneled to investigate fired Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, according to a new report by the Washington Post. Federal prosecutors in Washington are using a Grand Jury to investigate whether McCabe purposely misguided officials over his role in unauthorized disclosures to The Wall Street Journal. The Grand Jury was impaneled months ago and so far more than one witness has been summoned who may have to testify against McCabe.

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) on Thursday called President Trump’s furious reaction to an anonymous administration official's op-ed disparaging him in The New York Times a “manifestation of his instability.” Pelosi said her “first thought” was that Vice President Pence penned the opinion piece, which described efforts among staffers in the Trump administration to push back against the president's instincts. Not long after the op-ed was published Wednesday afternoon, Trump tweeted “Treason?” in all caps. He later demanded the Times identify the piece's author "for National Security purposes." “The president saying it’s treason is, again, a manifestation of his...

    The left is very close to having a governing majority due entirely to immigration. Despite the promise of the Trump campaign, there isn't much standing in their way. Now, they're just running out the clock. Soon, we will have admitted so many immigrants that it will be too late to do anything. Although liberals pretend to have no idea where conservatives got the idea that immigration was designed to change the country and bring in new voters, they weren't always so modest. In a 1998 article for Cornell University's Roper Center for Public Opinion Research, Democratic political consultant Patrick Reddy...

His comments come after a court filing uncovered by Judicial Watch revealed that no FISA court hearings were held regarding warrants to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. Jarrett said Saturday that the Supreme Court should get involved in order to prevent future abuses. He said that a show cause hearing should be held to determine why Justice Department and FBI officials involved shouldn't be held in contempt. The Justice Department released...

    It's been painful to listen to many on team MAGA complain about Attorney General Jeff Sessions, accusing him of ineptness and promoting the narrative that he needs to resign. This idiocy has spread to knowledgeable right-leaning media personalities that clearly have no idea what's happening, and don't appreciate the size and scope of what Sessions has been undertaking. The primary focus of Attorney General Sessions is to restore integrity and honor to the Department of Justice. He has been doing an excellent job running a tight ship and keeping details about ongoing investigations confidential. AG Sessions is doing everything to...
