AG Sessions is “the seasoned vet in a clubhouse full of rookies” in border battle

Certain of Imminent Victory.

While there is no denying that the Trump presidency is off to some incredible start at this juncture in time, there are still several, hefty, outstanding promises to be kept.

I’m not doubting that Trump will get them done.  I’m just simply pointing out that the man has a lot of ambition.

Of these outstanding debts in his “contact with America” is a wall on the southern border, separating the United States from Mexico.  The reason for this wall is not to curb the flow of U.S. citizen-hopefuls, coronas, or Tres Generations Anejo, (one of the nectars of the Gods).  No, the wall is to keep out the drug cartels’ hitmen, kidnappers, and product.

For some reason, this sounded like a terrible idea to the liberal left, who have clung to this particular fight in their attempts to paint the President as some sort of racist.

While the media and their surrogates in Hollywood try to nudge the narrative to the left, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is certainly trying to set the record straight.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is skillfully and successfully implementing President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, says the pro-migration, elite-left Vox website.

The site’s immigration writer, Dara Lind, described Sessions as “the seasoned vet in a clubhouse full of rookies,” who:

…understands the immigration system exceedingly well and is devoted to wreaking as much change in it as possible. Every Trump administration initiative on immigration, to the extent that it’s had teeth at all, has been given those teeth by Sessions and the DOJ.

Amid Washington uproar, Sessions is forcefully reforming the Department of Justice’s myriad agencies, rules, and staff rosters to reverse decades of pro-migration preferences, Vox recognizes:

Sessions has generally kept his attention on doing his job — even at the cost of his relationship with the president. He’s pulled every available lever to redirect the considerable resources of the Department of Justice (DOJ) to fight the crimes he considers most serious: violent crimes, drug crime, and, most notably, violations of immigration law.

This will be good news for Trump voters headed to the midterm polls in a few months.  The more success the republicans can have with immigration now, the better.  Given the unprecedented number of unprecedented incidents that we experience during the 2016 election, imagine what two years’ worth of fallout is going to bring us.

New Pork Rules Could Outlaw Bacon in California

This would be an unforgivable overreach by the state government.

There are plenty of times in which Americans engage in a bit of exaggeration at the expense of our federal government.  It’s a defense mechanism, really, in which we are trained to extrapolate the worst possible outcome of any interaction with our elected officials, to guard against abuse at the hands of the tyrannical among us. Very rarely do these sorts of predictions come true.  Truly, this is just part of the American DNA, and it has deep roots in the caffeinated waters of Boston Harbor back in 1773. And if you thought that a new tax on tea was a flimsy enough excuse to rail against the oppressors, what happens when a state government outlaws bacon? At the beginning of next year, California will begin enforcing an animal welfare proposition approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2018 that requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens and veal calves. National veal and egg producers are optimistic they can meet the new standards, but only 4% of hog operations now comply with the new rules. Unless the courts intervene or the state temporarily allows non-compliant meat to be sold in the state, California will lose almost all of its pork supply, much of which comes from Iowa, and pork producers will face higher costs to regain a key market. The threat is no hogwash, either. California’s restaurants and groceries use about 255 million pounds of pork a month, but its farms produce only 45 million pounds, according to Rabobank, a global food and agriculture financial services company. The National Pork Producers Council has asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture for federal aid to help pay for retrofitting hog facilities around the nation to fill the gap. Hog farmers said they haven’t complied because of the cost and because California hasn’t yet issued…

Pro-Trump PACs Rake in The Dough, Setting Former POTUS Up with Massive War Chest

The sheer value of Trump’s coffers is nigh unprecedented.

Published

Despite his arbitrary removal from both Twitter and Facebook, former President Donald Trump continues to exude a great deal of sway over the American political ecosystem…and he’s only going to get more influential from here. Trump and his surrogates are still months away from officially announcing anything as far as 2024 goes, but, with the 2022 midterms just around the corner, the MAGA machine is already beginning to get tuned up. And let’s just say that there is plenty of fuel in the tank, too. Former President Donald Trump’s political committees brought in $82 million during the first half of 2021 and have $102 million in the bank, according to federal filings made public Saturday evening. The figures, shared first with POLITICO, underscore the profound reach of Trump’s fundraising power. While the former president is out of office and has been deplatformed on social media sites, he maintains a massive online donor network that he could lean on should he wage a 2024 comeback bid. The numbers are extraordinary, historically speaking. The scenario is virtually unprecedented: Never in history has a former president banked nine figures’ worth of donations to power a political operation. Over the first six months of the year, Trump’s political groups whipped up supporters with baseless claims of election fraud to pull in cash on a scale similar to the GOP’s official political arms, the Republican National Committee and the party’s House and Senate campaign committees. The numbers are undoubtedly troubling for liberals listening in from the left side of the aisle, as worries continue to grow about whether or not the Democrats have any shot at holding onto a majority in the House in 15 months’ time.
