Let freedom ring with prodigious respect for Jeff Sessions, CH!

* * *

Don't think so. You claimed that Sessions was a key ingredient in taking down the deep state and DJT was in his corner 100% despite his recusal. That last statement is obviously not true and the first one's on a shaky foundation.

Ultimately I wanted for Sessions to be vindicated but that hasn't happened as Trump is openly campaigning for his primary opponent. I don't know how more obvious it could be that DJT wasn't pleased with his performance as Attorney General. It was and is a huge job and being in that den of dawdlers called the US Senate for a long time wasn't the best job training.

Posted by: Captain Hate | July 04, 2020 at 03:53 PM

No, what I recall claiming about Sessions is that he was an outstanding Attorney General and he protected President Trump from a damn good trap that had been set -- even if the Prez doesn't know how to publicly acknowledge that or, for strategic reasons, doesn't *want* to publicly say so.

To me, he unquestionably protected 45 from that trap. Anyone claiming otherwise necessarily dismisses the tremendous level of opposition to Trump that Sessions had to deal with. Opposition that CONTINUES to reveal itself even at this late date. It's remarkably foolish to do so when not only Ed Meese has acknowledged how good Sessions was, so has Mike Mukasey and our current A.G. William Barr.

That's three respected names. Just wondering, can you read and give *them* some credence CH? GUS ???

But, hey . . . y'all know better. I mean, he was just a squish, right GUS?

Good grief.

GUS

In all of the speculation that has gone on since Jeff Sessions was sworn in (February 9 2017) and Mr Sessions self imposed recusal, (March 2 2017), it should be noted that Sessions, served 22 days as A.G. At one point in the JOM discussions, my friend TomR, made a little SPORT of me, asking that "my friends" here at JOM should ask or teach me about a CALENDAR. I has misspoken. I gave Jeff Sessions too much credit. He had been in office for 22 days. He left the President, WITHOUT AN A.G.during the biggest POLITICAL SCANDAL and WITCH HUNT in HISTORY. As it has turned out, unequivocally, there was no crime being investigated. 3 years of a FRAUD and SCANDAL, with ZERO CRIME. NONE.
Giving SESSIONS, the benefit of the doubt, is difficult. He didn't discuss his VIRTUOUS STANCE with his PRESIDENT. NAIVE is the best that can be said of him. This CANNOT happen again.

GUS

Rattler-Gator. Sessions was a squish.
I don't say that to disrespect you, nor TomR.
He was a squish.

GUS

R-G. I don't know BETTER than anyone. It is merely my considered opinion. God bless you and your opinions. This is not an attempt to attack and smear Jeff B Sessions. I believe on balance, he is a good man, with good intentions.

Jefferson wrote a paragraph condemning slavery that was removed from the final draft of the Declaration.

He has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. This piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the Christian King of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where Men should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or restrain this execrable commerce. And that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people on whom he has obtruded them: thus paying off former crimes committed again the Liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another.

Later Jefferson would blame delegates from South Carolina and Georgia in the south as well as delegates from the north.

i'm trying to figure out what was horrifying about the video you linked. blm tried to set up an illegal blockade of I5 (kinda looks like the Pine St exit and very dangerous at any time). someone was was coming down the interstate and the people were milling around in the traffic lanes and they had set up their vehicles to obstruct traffic. the defund the police crowd, setting up the illegal blockade (going in disguise upon the highway), then called the police to arrest the actual victim (someone they wanted to intimidate and assault if they stopped him).

what did they all think would happen when they tried to obstruct traffic on I5?

Finally some great commie flu news! My annoying s-i-l’s annual 4th of July party has been downsized to just family because she’s freaked out about the virus.

Yay, lyle gets to not attend even though my wife and m-i-l are going. There will be enforced social distancing. Eff that.

BTW, this sister of my wife is the ultimate Karen. A Proto-Karen, if you will. She was a Karen before everyone knew what a Karen was.

Joey Chestnut sets world record, eating 75 hotdogs and buns in ten minutes at Nathan's annual barfathon.
The chick champion downed a bit more than half that leading me to conclude Joey needs to identify as a broad next year and claim both titles.

Thanks, MM. I might have to tune in.

Who on earth would eat 75 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes?

Oh right, Joey Chestnut. How many times does he throw up after?

I couldn't eat 2 hotdogs ub 10 minutes!

Colin Kaepernick calls Independence Day a 'celebration of white supremacy' and REJECTS it because black people have been 'dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized and terrorized' in the US for centuries
The thing that makes me scratch my head is how this lamebrained shitbird who hasn't chucked a pass in anger in years isn't destitute and some white supremacist's batting practice if anything he says is true.

The Infamous Ignatz

It's incomprehensible to me, Jane.
The granddaughter of a friend challenged me to down eight hamburgers at a church picnic a couple of years ago.
I made it but that last one nearly needed a broomstick to keep it down.
Had they been dogs, maybe I could have done a dozen or so.
Just think of the volume that 75 dogs and buns take up. Doesn't seem possible.

The rioting in major cities across the U.S. has spread to The Villages, Florida, a retirement community of 100,000.
Looters in Florida’s friendliest hometown have especially broken into stores that sell items like laxatives, vitamins, hearing aids, reading glasses, energy drinks and surgical stockings.
The thugs were easily caught and arrested since they were using their walkers and golf carts to flee.
The protests have been limited to the evening hours because most of the lawbreakers either had doctor’s appointments during the day or rioting would have interfered with their naps.
The marches didn’t last that long because many of the demonstrators had to get home to pee. In many cases, the demonstrators simply forgot why they were even there.
Officials considered a curfew starting at 9 p.m. but since that’s the time when most of the residents go to bed anyway, it was decided that it wasn’t needed.
Community leaders concluded that part of the problem was that residents were restless because they had too much time on their hands since the recreation centers, pools, theaters, boutique stores and especially the bars were closed due to the coronavirus.
Community officials wanted to form a committee to look further into the problem, but the next day no one could remember why they needed a committee.

ROCCO, nice to see you. The SLAVERY ISSUE, and ad BIG JIM HENDRIX.
I do not believe Jimi Hendrix meant disrespect, he was an expressive guy, AND An ARMY VETERAN.
As a life long guitar player, I've come to enjoy Hendrix version a bit.
I've played and I have sang/sung the NATIONAL ANTHEM COUNTLESS TIMES. Sans hat, and goosebumps a'plenty. We as a NATION, have allowed disrespect to our UNBELIEVABLY FANTASTIC NATION. Why? I'll never know. For the NFL to announce that the BLACK NATIONAL ANTHEM will be played before ANY GAME of ANY SORT, is merely PANDERING, and it does unfathomable damage to our country.
It's akin to telling High School/College offspring, that it's ok, to address their parents as MIKE and JANE. NUTS. Once again PANDERING.
I will not forget, the GINORMOUS BUSINESSES, that have CAPITULATED to the MOB.
