Hopefully Thursday’s Senate Judiciary hearing was a preview of fascinating debates to come in the next two years of Republicans running the place. The slate of speakers who discussed the Loretta Lynch nomination for Attorney General included Prof Jonathan Turley, journalist Sharyl Attkisson who investigated the Fast and Furious gun running scandal, Milwaukee Sheriff David [...]
Sessions’ office posted a one-minute clip of his longer cross-examination in committee of Loretta Lynch, the President’s choice to be Attorney General. He interrogated her about illegal aliens’ non-existent right to take American jobs.
SENATOR SESSIONS: Let me ask you this: In the workplace America today, when we have a high number of unemployed, we’ve had [...]
Jeff Sessions appeared on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Monday morning and spelled out the problems with Mike McCall’s flawed enforcement legislation. Senator Sessions criticized the bill before mark-up and has not changed his mind about the House bill which has passed out of committee.
Listen to the audio link below (also, spare audio at Breitbart):
Laura Ingraham [...]
It’s disappointing that the key issue of immigration enforcement that sent more Republicans to Washington last November is being blown off first thing. On Tuesday I noted disapproval from a trusted authority: America’s Senator Jeff Sessions Slams Feeble Border Security Bill. In his press release, Senator Sessions criticized Mike McCaul’s bill: “We need reforms that [...]
While much of Washington wrings its hands about how kindly to treat “Americans” who have fought for the headchopper ISIS bunch in the Middle East, Ted Cruz has a better idea, namely to turn the Islamic State into a roach motel as far as US citizens are concerned: you can get in, but you can’t get [...]
Senator Sessions was cheated out of the Chairmanship of the Budget Committee by his “friend” Mike Enzi who had official seniority (the result of a coin toss) and insisted on the Chair, even though Sessions had earned it as an effective Ranking Member.
At any rate, Sessions now runs two subcoms rather than one biggie. I [...]
Many Republicans were elected last November with promises that they would end immigration chaos and truly secure the sieve-like border. But now the GOP appears hell-bent to ignore the reasonable desire of the American people to restore order to the immigration process, rather than watch the government encourage a free-for-all border in a very dangerous [...]
Jeff Sessions has returned to the Senate from his uncontested re-election with his continuing tireless defense of American workers from the open-borders billionaires looking for cheaper labor.
He is also focused on honing the Republican message regarding immigration, judging from his recent 25-page paper, The Immigration Handbook for the New Republican Majority.
In his paper, Sessions argued [...]
The new GOP-majority Congress has gotten off to an energetic start, and that includes legislation to scuttle the Obama’s executive amnesty. Senator Sessions endorses the Repeal Executive Amnesty Act of 2015, H.R.191, authored by Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-AL).
NumbersUSA has a list of what the bill would do:
• Prohibit the President’s use of granting parole to illegal aliens
• Prohibit [...]
The Oklahoma Republican, Tom Coburn, is retiring because of health issues, and he issued a final report as Ranking Member of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs titled, “A Review of the Department of Homeland Security’s Missions and Performance.”
It’s not a pretty picture. The DHS was thrown together quickly following the 9/11 jihadist [...]
Senator Lindsey Graham is a regular perpetual motion machine for amnesty. He typifies the Republican Inc. view that maximum outreach is required for hispanic votes, and that includes mega-amnesty aka work permits for millions of foreign lawbreakers to compete with citizens for scarce jobs.
Graham’s establishment views make him a popular guest for the mainstream liberal [...]
More bad news from the already disappointing GOP Congress — despite being the tireless Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee, Senator Sessions has been pushed out of being Chairman by a party detail about seniority, which was determined by a coin toss.
Ever the gentleman, Sessions calls the replacement Chairman, Mike Enzi, his “friend” but [...]
