  • Poll: Roy Moore Leads GOP Field for Alabama Senate

    04/16/2019 8:11:21 AM PDT · by TroutGuy · 106 replies
    Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore leads the field of potential Republicans vying for the chance to challenge Sen. Doug Jones (D), a year and a half after Moore lost what was supposed to be an easy election in a deep-red state. A new poll shows Moore leading a still-evolving field of Alabama Republicans competing for the nomination. He is the top choice of 27 percent of Alabama Republican voters, according to the Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy Inc. survey. The state’s three Republican members of Congress finish well behind Moore: Rep. Mo Brooks would take 18 percent, Rep....

    U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber won't testify Thursday before the House Oversight subcommittee as its chairman had announced previously. Huber had been assigned by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate several controversies Republicans have raised about Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, many of them stoked by right-wing activists who believe she should be prosecuted. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., chairman of the Oversight’s subcommittee on government operations, had hoped Huber would provide an update on his probe. “Mr. Huber with the Department of Justice and FBI has been having an investigation — at least part of his task was...
  • 24 Hours After Replacing Sessions, Whitaker Ends Asylum for Illegals at Southern Border

    Matthew Whitaker’s tenure as acting attorney general may only be able to be measured in hours, but he’s already made a huge impact in how asylum-seekers are processed at the southern border. According to a new interim final rule from the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, those who enter the country illegally and are captured will no longer be able to claim asylum and will instead be returned to their country of origin on an expedited basis. “Consistent with our immigration laws, the President has the broad authority to suspend or restrict the entry of aliens into the United...
  • HOW WILL TRUMP HANDLE SESSIONS’ DEPARTURE?

    It’s no secret that Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ days as Attorney General are numbered. The main questions are: (1) How will his exit be handled and (2) Who will replace him. I have no insight as to the second question. One hears names like Matthew Whitaker (a former U.S. Attorney — and University of Iowa football player — who currently is Sessions’ chief of staff); Alex Azar, the Secretary of HHS (and not to confused with Alex Acosta); and Rep. John Ratcliffe (another former U.S. Attorney). However, I have no idea whether or to what degree these three (and others)...

    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.

    President Trump in an Oval Office interview with Hill.TV launched one of his most ferocious broadsides to date against Jeff Sessions, suggesting the attorney general was essentially AWOL and performing badly on a variety of issues. “I don’t have an Attorney General. It’s very sad,” Trump told Hill.TV in an extensive and free-wheeling interview Tuesday from the Oval Office. The president has long excoriated Sessions for his March2017 decision to recuse himself from the Russia collusion investigation. But on Tuesday he suggested he is frustrated by Sessions' performance on far more than that. “I’m not happy at the border, I’m...

    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...

    When then-FBI Director James Comey announced he was closing the Hillary Clinton email investigation for a second time just days before the 2016 election, he certified to Congress that his agency had “reviewed all of the communications” discovered on a personal laptop used by Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, and her husband, Anthony Weiner. At the time, many wondered how investigators managed over the course of one week to read the “hundreds of thousands” of emails residing on the machine, which had been a focus of a sex-crimes investigation of Weiner, a former Congressman. Comey later told Congress that “thanks...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions was scheduled to visit the prison at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba on Friday to get a firsthand look at the facility. Sessions was to be joined on his tour by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, The Hill reported. Sessions has defended the detention facility. He said in March there is no legal reason not to send newly captured terrorism suspects there, according to The Hill. "Keeping this country safe from terrorists is the highest priority of the Trump administration," Ian Prior, Department of Justice spokesman said.

    Thursday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told reporters it was “likely” President Donald Trump will fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions after the midterm elections. Graham said, “The president is entitled to an attorney general he has faith in. I think there will come a time, sooner rather than later, where it will be time to have a new face and a fresh voice at the Department of Justice.”

    Sessions said in the statement posted on Twitter by DOJ spox Sarah Isgur Flores, “I took control of the Department of Justice the day I was sworn in, which is why we have had unprecedented success at effectuating the President’s agenda.” Sessions then took it to the next level and unloaded on President Trump. “While I am the Attorney General, the actions of the Justice Department will not be improperly influenced by political considerations.

    The administration's response to the conjunction of this weekend's People's Climate March and the International Day of Peace? 1) Bomb Syria the following day, to wrest control of the oil from ISIS which gained its foothold directly in the region through the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and Jordan funding and arming ISIS' predecessors in Syria. 2) Send the president to UN General Assembly, where he will inevitably give a rousing speech about climate and peace, while the destruction of the environment and the shattering of world peace is on full display 5,000 miles away. Nothing better illustrates the bankruptcy...
  • Walter Edmiston, Keebler elf voice actor, dies in Los Angeles

    Walker Edmiston, an actor who was the voice of many cartoon and puppet characters, including Ernie the Keebler elf in TV commercials, has died. He was 81. Edmiston died of complications from cancer on Feb. 15 at his home in Woodland Hills, said his daughter, Erin Edmiston. He worked up until becoming ill in January, she said. Edmiston was born Feb. 6, 1926, in St. Louis, Mo., and moved to Los Angeles in 1947. In the 1950s and early 1960s, Edmiston had a children's show on local television.
