Attorney General Jeff Sessions Wakes Up

To many conservatives it appears that Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who as a Senator was one of the few principled conservatives serving in the upper chamber of Congress, has been asleep at his desk at the Department of Justice.

For the past year it has often looked as though Obama holdovers were in charge and few conservative priorities Jeff Sessionswere being pursued. While things are far from perfect at DOJ conservatives can take heart that the Attorney General has taken on one of the most important challenges facing the Trump presidency and constitutional government; California’s “sanctuary” for illegal aliens policies.

Yesterday, in remarks to the California Peace Officers’ Association, Attorney General Sessions laid down the law to the state of California:

I understand that we have a wide variety of political opinions out there on immigration.  But the law is in the books and its purpose is clear.

There is no nullification.  There is no secession.  Federal law is “the supreme law of the land.”  I would invite any doubters to Gettysburg, and to the graves of John C. Calhoun and Abraham Lincoln.

A refusal to apprehend and deport those, especially the criminal element, effectively rejects all immigration law and creates an open borders system.  Open borders is a radical, irrational idea that cannot be accepted.

The United States of America is not “an idea;” it is a secular nation-state with a Constitution, laws, and borders, all of which are designed to protect our nation’s interests. Surely, we should be able to agree on this much.

But, said Sessions, California we have a problem – the State’s “sanctuary” policies intended to frustrate federal law and immigrations enforcement.

And to those California politicians who are behind those policies General Sessions had a very direct message: California is using every power it has—and some it doesn’t—to frustrate federal law enforcement. So, you can be sure I’m going to use every power I have to stop them.

Sessions then explained that the Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against the state of California to invalidate those unjust laws and to immediately freeze their effect.

You can read the complaint through this link.

The specific provisions of California law the lawsuit seeks to invalidate are important for the rest of America to understand the radical nature of the steps California officials have taken to nullify federal law:

This lawsuit challenges three California statutes that reflect a deliberate effort by California to obstruct the United States’ enforcement of federal immigration law, to regulate private entities that seek to cooperate with federal authorities consistent with their obligations under federal law, and to impede consultation and communication between federal and state law enforcement officials.

The first statute, the “Immigrant Worker Protection Act,” Assembly Bill 450 (“AB 450”), prohibits private employers in California from voluntarily cooperating with federal officials who seek information relevant to immigration enforcement that occurs in places of employment.

The second statute, Assembly Bill 103 (“AB 103”), creates an inspection and review scheme that requires the Attorney General of California to investigate the immigration enforcement efforts of federal agents.

The third statute, Senate Bill 54 (“SB 54”), which includes the “California Values Act,” limits the ability of state and local law enforcement officers to provide the United States with basic information about individuals who are in their custody and are subject to federal immigration custody, or to transfer such individuals to federal immigration custody.

We welcome Attorney General Sessions’ principled stand against California’s challenge to constitutional government. Americans of all opinion on immigration should recognize that proclamations and ordinances passed establishing so-called “sanctuary cities” and “sanctuary states” are the 21st century versions of South Carolina’s 19th century ordinance of nullification, and should be dealt with as President Jackson did – first by constitutional argument and then by exercising the political will to assert federal authority to enforce the laws Congress passes.

Sessions Finally Gains Consciousness?

Bout friggin' time. Hope this is not illusory. After 8 disastrous years of Ozone I want Sessions to be the meanest Mutha on the block. I want him to kick ass and take names. I want him to cancel out all the anti-American BS of the Ozone years. And I want him to do it with a mighty swift sword. No pussy footing around. Is Sessions finally awake? He damn well better be, or he should resign now.

Sessions Action Against California

There is one reason and one reason only, that California has passed these immigration laws! And that reason is that the Democrats who run the country are using illegal immigrants to increase the democrat vote. They have done this by failing to implement voter ID in voting, organizing the illegals to vote for dead people still on the rolls and to vote for people who never actually vote. In addition they have blatantly, and totally illegally, registered these immigrants as "citizen voters" in a massive way. All to keep or gain further control of the government by Democrats.

" .. Wake Up .. "

I'm sorry, but no, he is NOT ' waking up ', he is simply doing the old " swamp shuffle " or the magician's illusion of " look here, not there ".

He does NOT want to go to: FISA - Wire Taping - DOJ dropping the Hillary Ball and so on ... notice how much that is NOT in his vocab!

No, this is just ' false flags ' ... trying to give the illusion of ' doing something '.

Though some of these are important, trust me, they were well screened before ' going here ' ... other wise we would NOT.

Jeff Session will indeed " wake up " when he appoints a Special Counsel for the FISA and H.R.C. illegal issues. Then and only then, will will the game stop and true RULE OF LAW and returning back to our Core will happen.

I'm tired of the Bait and Switch and the illusions of " look over here, forget looking there! " game.


I think most thought that Sessions would do a great job as Attorney General but when he recused himself it limited his ability or at least he thought it did.
I think there are issues he could be involved with that would not violate his recusal.
One such issue is whether the FBI and certain members of the DOJ the State Department and perhaps others in the past administration had violated laws, rules and regulations regarding their performance during the Clinton scandals, the FISA requests that would not be directly related to his recusal.
I agree with Trey Gowdy, Sessions should appoint a separate council for the above issues. It would go a long way in reaffirming Sessions reputation.

Lunacy of Government

Of all the "fun" and irrational ocmments made of Sessions not taking action on anything, I am glad that this suite against CA came about as he has to be overwhelmingly busy with all of the lunacy going on in this country. The next topic whose wall should be torn down is 'Audit the Fed'. Another lunacy if this country is actually run by the people - and not illegals as it is now. Even the Republicans are out of their minds and not working for us. Can you imagine what power that these people will and already have that will totally change the demographics from USA to Mexico and other countries where we are taking in vast amounts of foriegners?
