Jeff Sessions Has to Go

I take no pleasure in that statement.  Sessions was an early and vocal supporter of Donald Trump and is actually an honorable man. A rarity in Washington.

But it doesn't change the fact that the poor bastard is too weak to run his department.  DOJ is filled to the brim with lawyers and lawyers lean Left as instinctively as a beaver builds a dam.  Drastically compounding that problem is eight years of Obama appointees who feel their first cause and primary duty is to advance Leftist goals.

Sessions caved early and caved big when he recused himself on the flimsiest of grounds when the Great Russian Witch Hunt began.  It wouldn't have taken a genius to figure out that the man underneath who was an Obama appointee would leap greedily at the chance to appoint a Special Counsel.

While a Special Counsel isn't as bad a Special Prosecutor, Mueller won't stop until he gets someone's scalp for something.

Sessions had to have known that somewhere inside when he recused.  An honorable man to be certain but also a very weak one.  Even #TeamNeverTrump is realizing it.

More than two thousand libertarians attended the annual Freedom Fest conference last weekend in Las Vegas. Numerous speakers focused their criticism of the Trump Administration on one man — Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

It wasn’t personal animus toward Jeff Sessions. Some of the speakers know him and like him. I even heard a few critical of Sessions to acknowledge that he is a “good and decent man” but he is “wrong…on issues that ‘libertarians care about.’” More than one of his critics was even sympathetic — noting that Sessions was being subject to a “slow water torture” — unseemly and undignified, and even unfair to Sessions, that is the leaks, and even the past statements by President Donald Trump. This weekend conference concluded before the most recent statement by POTUS.

When a British cabinet minister is appointed to his post, his department immediately begins converting him to their view point.  They call this "house training".  When that minister begins to automatically take his department's POV this is called having "gone native."

Sessions embrace of property confiscation without much in the way of due process sealed the deal for me as well. Jeff has gone native and done so in record time. 

Jeff Sessions has to go!



DOJ lawyers have continued to keep alive a slew of cases appealing a 2014 district court ruling that granted an injunction from the mandate to several Catholic organizations. The Supreme Court vacated an appeals court ruling against The Little Sisters of the Poor and similar organizations in 2016, sending the cases back to the lower courts. Many religious freedom advocates expected that the Trump administration, which has vowed to protect The Little Sisters and other organizations burdened by the contraceptive mandate, would drop the legal campaign against the religious organizations. But more than six months into the Trump era, the legal fights are still alive.

Okay, it is official. The DOJ needs a boot on it's neck.
