The Real Reason for the Left’s All-Out Assault on Jeff Sessions
Daily Signal ^ | January 11, 2017 | J. Christian Adams

Posted on 01/12/2017 7:31:18 AM PST by detective

Observers of this week’s confirmation hearings for the post of U.S. attorney general might think it odd to see Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., rewind the clock to a single voter fraud case from the 1980s.

Under persistent questioning, Sessions has had to defend his decision to prosecute a case of brazen voter fraud—something that was his job to do.

The repeated references to this case by some senators represent just how far the civil rights industry has swerved from its honorable roots to derail a confirmation.

Character assassination, false testimony, performance protests aimed at securing retweets instead of reconciliation, and more have all been trained on the Alabama senator.

Didn’t President Eisenhower warn us about the
civil rights/industrial complex?

The Right is generally stupid when it comes to our fight against the Left for God and country. The battle is ALWAYS about the power of the federal government.

When the Left is in power, the Right is cowed by the Left’s calls for “unity” and “cooperation”. Of course, what the Left really means is the Right must move left (more unconstitutional government power). The Left meanwhile doesn’t budge.

When the Right is in power, the Left isn’t cowed a bit and always takes a hard line against the nominees and proposals of the Right and, again, doesn’t budge. No guilt tips about “unity” or “cooperation”. Just a hard line stance with no apologies.

The Left is absolutely committed to their agenda of tyranny, unlimited governmental power, and world government. The Right has yet to show the same level of determination for freedom, limited government, and America’s sovereignty. The Right better get off their ass and fight these quislings with the same determination these enemies within have to take away the Constitution and freedom from America.

Yes John Kerry was confirmed 94-3 but Tillerson will be lucky to get out of committee and get 50 votes.

Will the Right ever be as committed and determined as the Left? If not, we're sunk.

Normalcy bias (fueled constantly with bread and circuses) empowers the left for their mischief while blunting the evidence set before the right.

Evidence abounds that the democrap party and many republicants are working for an agenda which is not to uphold OUR Constitution but to destroy the Republic so the new world order can waltz to power finally. Normalcy bias prevents folks from accepting the TRUTH of the facts.

I don’t think it’s been scheduled yet but McConnell has hinted he wants it before the 20th, along with everyone else that’s having hearings this week. Sessions will sail through. Joe Manchin has said that he doesn’t care what Schumer says he’s voting for the Jess Sessions that he knows.

EXXON has no friends on the left. EXXON is the poster child for lefthate.

T-Rex (I love it) is the better man than any in the Senate and commands more resources than most national leaders. He is pure anathema to leftists

He is precisely what is needed as Secretary of State

The left’s all out assault on Jeff Sessions is because they’re afraid that he will be an effective Attorney General. The left will help grease the way for Ben Carson because they believe that he will be a train wreck and blow up in Trump’s face. Just watch.

Sen. Sessions was an Eagle Scout as well. His is my senator and I’ve been honored to have dinner with him on two occasions.

Accurate analysis - all you need to do is change some labels.

The GOPe right is no more in favor of personal freedom and liberty than the DNC left.

The true paradigm isn't right vs left, it's state vs individual.
