Jeff Sessions Unfit for Post Defending Civil Rights & Enforcing Laws on Discrimination

Openly Racist Trump Nominee Gets Hanged by the Court of Public Opinion. Surprise! Trump Does NOT care! Calls Public Opinion "Over-Rated"

The first of a two-day confirmation hearing for President-elect Donald Trump’s controversial attorney general nominee begins today. Republican Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama faces questions from his colleagues on the Judiciary Committee, where he serves as chair of the immigration subcommittee.

Trump’s pick has drawn widespread outrage because of Sessions’s opposition to the Voting Rights Act, support for anti-immigration legislation and history of making racist comments. We are joined by David Cole, national legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union, who is set to testify at Sessions’ Senate hearing, and with Kyle Barry, policy counsel with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and co-author their report opposing Jeff Sessions’s nomination.

    I love this in America, “Your comment is awaiting moderation.”

    And this on a site that tries to break taboos. Like Alex Jones’ sites, and most others, as Zion said, they were going to take down free speech in comments online and they just about have on every site on the Internet.

    IF you don’t allow full comments… you will find your site shrinks and dies.

    The irony here is that Sessions will likely actually enforce the laws without agenda. Goodman is a face of Zion and is allowed on very rare occasions to keep her other sometimes real but mostly well filtered perspectives which are supported by many Jews… going. She may actually think she is free to say what she pleases but does she ever actually get into 911 or drug importation for Afghanistan and washing by the FED and its whore banks or the brutality of Israel, really pounding that issue? Maybe as I said just a little, just enough to corrode morality and aligning herself with the program in all other areas.

Meanwhile, Hollywood’s Jew supremacists crank out endless “Holocaust” & slavery agitprop. Hey Amy, here’s a monstrous cover-up you could investigate but won’t:

    Jewish “slave trade”:
