To say that President Trump’s first year or so in office was a contentious one would be understating the issue to the point of absurdity.  Trump is fighting a secret war that none of us can even fathom.

Within the White House, the “resistance” has found footholds.  An unprecedented number of high level leaks have been streaming from the hallways of the West Wing, flowing and ebbing in and out of the Deep State Washington Swamp.  Snakes abound, but the insects are even more venomous.  And, it seems to hold true that every few weeks you’ll sniff out another nest.

That seems to be the case in Capitol Hill today, as the President’s rocky relationship with Jeff Sessions continues to sour.

Trending: Biden Speech Writers Salivate Over Emerging July 4th Narrative

President Donald Trump again expressed his frustration with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Twitter Wednesday, citing remarks from Rep. Trey Gowdy on Fox News.

Gowdy said that he understood why Trump was frustrated with Sessions, because the Alabama Senator should have explained to the president that he would recuse himself from the Russia investigation before taking the job.

“There are lots of really good lawyers in the country, he could have picked somebody else,” Gowdy concluded.

“And I wish I did!” Trump added on Twitter.

Trump frustration with Sessions has mounted in recent days, particularly after learning that Sessions was a key witness for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of charges against the president for obstruction.

Now, I’m no fan of Jeff Sessions based simply on his unwillingness to investigate more modern tactics to fight the war on drugs.  Sessions is a hardline, lock ’em up for a long time, kind of legislator…and that goes all the way down to misdemeanor marijuana offenses.  There’s no great America where this is still the modus operandi of the Department of Justice.

While the liberal left is trying to spin this beef between the AG and POTUS as yet another sign of an underlying tumult at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, we could be finding ourselves a backdoor into a more modern conservative heading up the DOJ – something that this liberty lover right here would approve of wholeheartedly.

Biden Speech Writers Salivate Over Emerging July 4th Narrative

The cringe cometh.

Whoever is in charge of the story arc over at the White House is really excited about the Fourth of July. This is Independence Day, of course; the day in which we celebrate our decision to kick the British off of the continent over their ever-more-dastardly taxation of the colonies. But, for Team Biden, the 2021 version of Independence Day is going to bring us freedom from the coronavirus. President Joe Biden urged more Americans to get their coronavirus vaccine Wednesday, warning they still had “more to do” in order to celebrate Independence Day with their families. “To celebrate our independence from this virus on July 4th with family and friends in small groups, we still have more to do in the months of May and June,” Biden said. And his speech writers have been stewing on this hokey, on-the-nose narrative for a while. Biden first proposed the idea of allowing families and friends to gather for Independence Day on March 11, but he expressed concern on Wednesday the country was not ready. “If we let up now and stop being vigilant, this virus will erase the progress we’ve already achieved,” he said. We can only imagine what terrible puns and portmanteaus the Biden PR cabal will drop on us come July 4th: “One if by J&J, two if by Pfizer.” “If the Continental Army had has masks, so many fewer future Americans would have died from smallpox.” “You know what else is ‘Common Sense’?  Social distancing.” The cringe cometh, folks.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
