What about Reagan??

Al Frankin is a celebrity too. Not as publicly known maybe but still pretty famous.

Ventura was a Governor.

Oh yeah. Now you're all in favor of the Federal Government huh???

You're just here to antagonize people.

Any other time you'd be yelling about the Federal Government overreaching until now when you can praise it for stomping on what people have voted for in their own states.

Absolutely no principles, honestly or integrity left is there......


Why would referencing something clear in your constitution antagonize you?

Guilt by association happening now again from the democrats.
Disavow this person, disavow that person...shocking.

The last question...
"would you disavow an award from the KKK if you got one"... some idiot called Blumenthal was the questioner. Totally humiliated himself. Moron.

Blumenthal is the same idiot who has been doing the media rounds calling for all the hearings to be called off.

Its actually a discusting show of childplay and social blackmail.

He handles himself well, but i think Trumps is exploding in his tower!

I think some of the other people at the hearing are embarrassed by Blumenthal... understandably so.
But yes, Sessions held his ground well and would not bow to the social blackmail. Big plus for his nomination right there.

I'm not familiar how this went with previous sessions?

Was this lecturing and speeching always the procedure among Obama, Bush etc ... ?

This one with Sessions is pretty bad.
Two or three of the Democrats have been really sleazy in the way they have gone about questioning. Zero class.
2015 with Lynch was not particularly classy either, on the Republican side.

Well, the beauty of truth is... It will hold.

He handled himself well, after this election a bit more attention was expected.

And.. maybe.. a little bit off grill wil end up a good thing !

Its ended, have a good day Sir.

Really?

Now this rings a bell..

I've read somewhere normally they passed 5 or 6 members a day on these occasions...
And now they planned to do one a day or so.. ?

I guess that was about this.

I get the political system of the US , but i have yet to get accustomed to their rituals.

( or not maybe )

Amazing support being given to Session right now in the hearing...


HE JUST SAID HE WOULD NOT LOOK THE OTHER WAY ON WEED!

The state level legalization only exists by the grace of the Obama Administration not enforcing Federal Law...

Asked if he would prosecute people using marijuana as their state law allows, he said he "would not commit to not enforcing federal law"

An entire industry is going berserk right now.



Good, federal law trumps state law.

Oh yeah. Putting thousands out of work, making thousands more criminals overnight, and further enriching established criminals while stomping on any notion of states rights, sounds wonderful.

I take it you don't live in America.

There is more than one today - General Kelly's hearing is happening too (simultaneously).

By that logic, legalising crack coc aine would be great too. Jobs, putting criminals out of business, making thousands of criminals non-criminals overnight. Sounds wonderful.

It would be. It wouldn't be as dangerous to society or the person choosing to use it. When the drug war is fought the way its always been fought, we're creating our own enemy. And doing nothing but hurting ourselves as a society.

Sessions represents the old rights-stripping war on drugs worldview that values punishment for something they don't agree with over actually helping people and solving the problem.

Franken is back on... more idiocy...
"If someone from the Trump campaign was working with Putin and you found out, what would you do..."

Fool.

The good man is actually doing his best.. and trying to answer without judgement about the reason of questioning.

I think it will pay off for him!

I agree.
He is outclassing his Democrat agitators.

Dude there is nothing wrong with any of the questions anyone is asking.

Hell, any question is better than massive butt kissing the republicans are doing. They may as well just walk over and take his pants down and blow the guy with the way some of them were acting.

At least the Dems are asking questions to see if he's qualified for the job.

Who cares how tough the questions may be, the harder the better.

Nobody is embarrassed by anything either other than perhaps the sell outs who think they should just let anyone nominated walk right in to office. But who cares what the sell outs think anyway.
