Sessions Confirmed, Senator Scott Speaks About Tolerance, Lines Drawn, Kudos To DeVos

Jeff Sessions Confirmed and Sworn in As Attorney General
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author:  Sessions Confirmed -  Senator Jeff Sessions, President Trump's nominee for attorney general, was finally confirmed last night. After weeks of leaving the Justice Department decapitated, the left finally ran out of stalling tactics. The vote was 52-to-47, virtually along party lines. Only one Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin, voted for Sessions. (I suspect that has something to do with the fact that Trump carried West Virginia by 42 points.)

Jeff Sessions believes in the rule of law. His confirmation as attorney general means that the mass amnesties of the past eight years are over. This attorney general understands that a nation without borders is not a nation.

This confirmation also means that Democrat senators in red states will have a lot of explaining to do. Why did they allow themselves to be dictated to and controlled by the radical leftists and race baiters who control their party?

For example, Trump won North Dakota by 35 points. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D) needs to explain to her constituents why she opposed the president's attorney general. Are North Dakotans big amnesty backers? I doubt it.

The same goes for Sen. Jon Tester (D) of Montana, which Trump won by 21 points. And Sen. Joe Donnelly in Indiana, which Trump won by 19 points. And Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, which Trump also won by 19 points. And Sen. Sherrod Brown (D) of Ohio, which Trump won by eight points.

Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer said that when Sessions was confirmed, "it turned my stomach." Well, Sen. Schumer, millions of Americans are sick to our stomach because you and so many other so-called "progressives" are so eager to smear someone with false charges of racism.

Jeff Sessions' record in the Senate has been one of decency and humility. His leadership and commitment to conservative principles will be deeply missed in the Senate, but I cannot think of a better man to lead the Department of Justice.

Speaking of Decency. . . I want to share you with what one of three black senators, the only one who is a Republican, had to say yesterday. Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina is a courageous Christian man. I am proud to call him a friend.

Sen. Scott supported Jeff Sessions' nomination to be attorney general and the tolerant crowd, which says we are bigots, viciously attacked this black senator. Sen. Scott went to the Senate floor yesterday and read some of the messages he has received from so-called "progressives."

We have seen Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) make news for opposing Jeff Sessions. We have seen Sen. Elizabth Warren make news for opposing Sen. Sessions. But if you were watching ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC or MSNBC you did not see anything about Sen. Scott's powerful statement last night.

Please share this video with your friends and family members:

Lines Drawn -  Battle lines are being drawn on illegal immigration. Texas Governor Greg Abbott is going after sanctuary cities and he is also going a step further. Legislation is advancing in Texas, which, according to the governor's spokesman, "imposes criminal penalties on [local officials] who put themselves above the law to the detriment of Texans."

State Sen. Charles Perry, who sponsored the measure to crack down on lawless local officials said, "If we elect people [who] don't have the integrity to do what they say they're going to do -- apply the law -- the system collapses on itself."

Meanwhile, in Phoenix, Arizona, protests erupted last night when immigration officials took an illegal immigrant with a felony conviction into custody. Protestors surrounded federal vehicles and attempted to prevent them from transporting detainees. Seven people were arrested.

Here's the bottom line: Either this lawlessness will be dealt with by the Trump Administration or a new principle will be established allowing states and localities to nullify federal law, to pick and choose which laws they want to enforce.

California is quickly becoming the new South Carolina with a growing secessionist movement and threats to stop sending tax revenue to Washington.

Some are suggesting that if the left can get away with this kind of selective law enforcement, why shouldn't red state governors and local officials declare their states and cities "abortion free zones," where the right to life is protected, and "prayer sanctuary cities," where prayers can be freely heard on public property?

Speaking Of Lawlessness. . .   The organizers of the Berkeley riots are patting themselves on the back for the great job they did in smashing windows and denying someone their civil rights. No, I'm not making this up.

"We are happy with the results," said Ronald Cruz, who is part of left-wing hate group "By Any Means Necessary" or BAMN.

Yvette Felarca, also a BAMN leader, told a local media outlet that the Berkeley riot was a "stunning achievement." When pressed as to why the protest could not be a peaceful one that still allowed Milo Yiannopoulous to speak on the campus, Felarca answered:
"This isn't a matter of violent versus peaceful protests. I was there. . . It was a mass protest, it was a militant protest, and everyone was there to shut him down. And so -- whatever it was going to take to do that -- we were all there with a united cause, and we were stunningly successful."Asked whether the violence was counterproductive, Ms. Felarca flatly rejected that idea, saying, "I think the left has been far too timid for far too long. . . We need . . . more militant protests that are mass and militant."

By the way, Ms. Felarca is a middle school teacher who seems to enjoy picking fights.

Kudos To Secretary DeVos -  Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has been on the job just 48 hours, but already she has scored a major win for homeschooling. Unhinged liberals across the country are now embracing the movement to get their kids out of the public schools DeVos now leads.

What sweet irony!

Liberal senators and activists attacked DeVos because of her advocacy of school choice. Now that they failed to defeat her nomination, some liberals are pulling their kids out of the public schools and are embracing . . . school choice options!
