Sessions Recused Himself from Russian Investigation… but not Draining the Swamp

Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended his decision to recuse himself from the Congressional and Department of Justice Russia probes and it just proves that he may, in fact, has integrity and was necessary to do so.
AG Sessions, as it is now obvious, wants both the Department of Justice (DoJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to operate under that same integrity — and he wants Americans to have confidence over the entire course of investigations, the law enforcement and investigative entities of the Executive Branch, and the processes to which to conduct themselves. He also knew that in order to maneuver and infiltrate the embedded former Obama and Establishment Deep State attorneys and operatives buried within, he would have to stay above board and negotiate and jockey within the DoJ with deliberate and precise impunity. And he has, ever so effectively.
Sessions this past weekend defended his decision to recuse himself from any investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election — a decision for which he has repeatedly been criticized for by many pundits, media analysts, and certainly his opponents. The Attorney General addressed the issue in response to a question after a speech at Georgetown University, when he was asked whether it was “a mistake” to recuse himself in March 2017. Sessions in his typical sly smile and shifted perhaps deceptively in an uncomfortable way before saying; “No, I don’t … No, I think that’s what I had to do.”
He further added, saying that regulations state that if someone participates in a campaign, then they can’t investigate that campaign, referring to and calling that “pretty reasonable.” He noted that; “I was chairman of the National Security Committee of the Trump campaign and participated in it. So I didn’t feel like it was, that’s what I was advised, by the professionals, career people in the department and I felt like I had to recuse myself,” he said.
While President Trump at times has repeatedly seemed to be angry with his attorney general over everything from his so-called failure to pursue a potential prosecution of Hillary Clinton more vigorously, to his decision to ask the inspector general to review alleged surveillance abuse by intelligence agencies. All of the rhetoric negative Sessions, in my analysis, appears to be both actually part of the deception and serve as a distraction, and perhaps even an orchestrated cover that allows Session to operate with exception and safeguarded by his recusal.
A number of reports suggest that Sessions tried to resign last May, but then-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and the President intervened and convinced him to stay. Earlier this month while Sessions’ staff marked the anniversary of his confirmation by buying him a bulletproof vest with his name on it. All of these examples are solid indicators that AG Sessions is safe, at least for now and the strategy of his recusal from the wide-ranging Russian probe has been both effective and a brilliant and timely tactic.
Further, as I have continued to note, that see it as actually a strategic move orchestrated and implemented to allow the necessary time and posturing for the criminals minds within the Deep State to eventually surface themselves and, or be outed as a result of the subsequent discoveries of their own illegal actions. After all, just look at what has transpired over the last year as a result of House Intelligence Committee’s Russia Collusion investigation, the private investigation by Conservative investigative journalistic elements of the media, entities like Judicial Watch, and other independent quasi-organizations working together.
From the stand point of being an effective attorney general, it is not just about prosecutions and indictments. The President’s efforts across board in his goals of fixing what’s broken can be attributed to his attorney general. President Trump’s impressive accomplishments ranging from deregulation to major tax reform to the appointment of exceptional judges to the federal bench start with the attorney general. Largely unnoticed has been the extraordinary work that Jeff Sessions has done in the DoJ to create a Reaganesque resurgence of law and order.
May I remind you again that Sessions inherited an agency that had ceded its basic duty to enforce the nation’s laws. We can cite a vast array of outrages and miscarriages of justice and the law, from Operation Fast and Furious to not enforcing federal drug laws to suing states like Arizona when they tried to enforce immigration law. AG Sessions has begun the effort to restore integrity to his office, and the department in many necessary ways starting with immigration law, violent crime, and drug enforcement. It’s hard to overstate the problems Sessions inherited after two successive attorneys general turned the Department of Justice into a political arm of the Obama administration. Through its “blame first, ask questions later” posture of hostility to the police – in Ferguson, Baton Rouge,  Dallas, and elsewhere – the federal government under President Obama had lost the trust of its partners in local law enforcement.
This isn’t just a problem for police morale – it’s a problem for us all, because when police fear prosecution for doing their jobs they sometimes do less, giving dangerous criminals greater freedom to everyone else. Like all citizens, law enforcement officers should be presumed innocent until proven guilty. But under the Obama administration, when questions arose about police conduct officers too often were presumed guilty until proven innocent.
But since Sessions took over, things have begun to improve. There is a genuine feeling among the men and women in blue that, for the first time in eight years, the president and attorney general have their backs.
In the grand scheme of justice and law enforcement, i.e.; in the Strategic perspective, dismissing Sessions as attorney general would be a giant step in the wrong direction. Because, although he has been missing up front and center from the Russia collusion battle, Sessions has been highly engaged – to significant benefit – first, behind the scenes ensuring necessary internal DoJ actions are in play which are contributing to the almost daily revelations that are surfacing involving former Obama politicos who have violated the trust of their agencies, the law and that of the American people.
Sessions’ leadership and understanding of the tenants of law enforcement has critical and in itself has begun rebuilding police trust by pumping the brakes. “We need, so far as we can, to help police departments get better, not diminish their effectiveness,” Sessions said. Sessions also has called for a return to tougher sentencing. For example, he encouraged federal prosecutors to bring charges when drug crimes also involve guns, so criminals can be subject to the tougher sentencing in federal courts.
In addition, Sessions is working with the Department of Homeland Security to crack down on illegal border crossings and is working with police chiefs across the country to fight the opioid crisis that is ravaging American cities and towns, taking the lives of over 50,000 Americans last year.
Recently, Sessions took important steps to restore civil asset forfeitures, a critical tool that supports state and local law enforcement, and strengthens an array of federal policing task forces and programs. He understands the sacrifice and risk that law-enforcement officers face and knows violent crime is worsening after decades of decline and must be fought with renewed vigor.
There have been many from the day President Trump was inaugurated, who have been anxious to see those from the Obama White House who were involved in the administration’s numerous scandals be brought to justice. Trust me, I believe in due time that will happen. However, as I have said many times before, President Trump was not elected by the American people to begin his term by implementing and conducting witch hunts to go after those from the Obama criminal enterprise. Any mandate he had, was and is to first fix America. Certainly in his first year, had he tried go full-throttle after the Obama White House he would have been chastised to the N-th degree.
I wholeheartedly believe there is a strategy in place, that has been implemented, and is currently playing-out as we speak — to do just that. Things will come into play and will play-out accordingly as witness are questioned, evidence is gathered, and intentions discovered. It is tedious and time consuming work to engage in such an effort of justice. Day to day we are seeing more and more being revealed about what the Obama administration had been doing, and in fact implicitly was up to. I will tell you that we are beginning to observe something big is unfolding and behind the scenes, Jeff Sessions may in fact be the maestro overseeing and orchestrating the effort — be it taking down Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, along with the firings of James Comey and Friday night, Andrew McCabe. Who will be next? Could it be Rod Rosenstein, U.S. District Court and FISA  Judge Rudolph Contreras, perhaps even Mueller… and certainly I can’t rule out; Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes, Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton, and maybe some others …
So, before we again decide to dismiss Attorney General Sessions, or demand his resignation, reflect on the good he has done for American law enforcement and in advancing the right agenda in his brief one-year or so tenure. If you do, I think you will agree that he is worth keeping on at least for now. His actions are keeping the American people safer and getting criminals off our streets … and perhaps, as we have demanded — eventually out of government, aka Draining the Swamp!

With mandates’ success, political orders for social control will continue to grow. We are experiencing tyranny by dictatorship.

The latest bottleneck in the supply chain is the hundreds of container ships waiting to be unloaded in West Coast ports like Los Angeles and San Diego.

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

As if the stench wasn’t enough, until this fake Pfizer approval, pushed through with the complicity of a fake president, elected by fake votes, and pushed by the fake media, until today the fastest approval for a vaccine ever took five years – which was for Ebola, that kills ~50% of its victims. By contrast, we have around just six months of safety data for the Covid shot until approval, and the survival rate is 99.997 if you are under 21 and not far below that even up to age 70…

America’s Decline is a Choice

Many in America think that America needs to be brought down to size. Barack Obama once said, “My legacy will be an America brought down to the level of the rest of the world,” and though Obama was not able to realize this ambition, the Biden Administration is moving full speed ahead with plans to weaken the United States militarily and economically, destroying the wealth of the American people in the process…
