A bitterly divided U.S. Senate confirmed Republican Senator Jeff Sessions on Wednesday as the next attorney general of the United States after strong pushback from Democrats concerned about his record on civil rights.

Sessions, 70, who has served two decades in the Senate from Alabama, was confirmed by a 52-47 vote largely along party lines after Democrats raised public opposition to his confirmation.

In a rare move for a senator recently confirmed to a Cabinet position, Sessions took to the floor of the chamber after the vote and called for members of Congress to have some "latitude" in their relationships with members of the other party.


It's the last sentence of the quoted text. I wonder which side of the aisle his message was intended for. I think it's going to be a very bad time for anyone 'left' on the (D) side.

Let the prosecutions ... begin!!

Schumer said Sessions’s confirmation “turned my stomach.”

Schumer: Dem uproar ensured DeVos, Sessions will be watched closely.



Cheers, I'll see myself out.....

That was a good test to see how things are going to shake out. Pense may stay busy for awhile but in the end and at first glance the Dems are going to have a hard time blocking future nominations.


Edit to add.. I really do think Pelosi has a serious mental problem..She has always seemed to be just a touch of an airhead especially after "we need to pass it to see what it says" kind of thinking...But anymore, every time she opens her mouth noting but delusional stupidity seems to runnith out...

I think Attorney General Sessions is asking Democrats and Republicans in Congress to be less judgmental of each other. Latitude is defined as: "scope for freedom of action or thought."

Honestly, my main concern with Sessions is State legalized MJ and the resurgence of the failed war on drugs.

CNN's anti-American and anti-Sessions broadcasts
yesterday, reporters interviewing each other,
reporters interviewing celebrity kooks, etc,
were like a room full of rabid dogs.

Oh well, CNN's beholden to George Soros
and to the Clintons.

CNN employees - Prove your points.
Pimp your daughters to the illegal aliens
you adore so much.

This is awful. Sessions is the worst person for this job! I can't believe this fan of the Drug war is being celebrated for his nomination. Of course Trump picked him, therefore there is no need to question the choice right?

Easily explained , you got to reward a racist to understand a racist.
This has nothing to do with political witch hunt .

Actually if you watched them question Sessions he stated that if the states want to make it legal it was time to start looking into changing the federal laws to match.

While Agree with you, unfortunately the MSM and the left chose to NOT run with those arguments and chose the racism angle that blew up in their face.

Well that is surprising and I didn't hear that.

I don't do drugs but I think what you want to do to your body is your concern and not the states or the feds as long as it doesn't hurt others.

The drug war is a disgrace and an embarrassment when a more justified war has never been declared. Where is the war on paedophiles where there are innocent and helpless victims ?

Atleast giving the states the rights is some progress. The Dems won't like this.

I'm at work right now and can't seem to find the right spot. I will try to dig and find it tonight. It really shocked me but it really thrilled me to hear someone talking about doing the things that needs to be done.

Do you know what they're thanking him for? Not what you think they are.

That's from Mobile, Alabama. When the civil rights movement happened it skipped that town, really. There were protests in Montgomery and everywhere around but not in that town. That state as a whole was a serious offender when it comes to civil rights. Students had to sue schools in Mobile not to be segregated and be allowed in.

This award is akin to Beyond Petroleum CEO giving an environmental protection award that's in the shape of the Gulf.

So the naacp gives awards that are meaningless?
Or is it just this one because sessions got it?

The civil rights movement in Mobile, like many Southern cities, suffers from a lack of proper perspective. Places like Mobile were the crucial battlegrounds where the true meaning of black equality was hammered out, away from news cameras and long after the violence in Birmingham, Montgomery and Selma abated.
