On the Wednesday edition of his program at The Daily Wire, commentator Michael Knowles reacted to the news of Jeff Sessions resignation from the position of Attorney General, breaking down what caused this course of action and drawing out some of the implications it holds for the future.

“Jeff Sessions has resigned,” Knowles said. “They didn’t wait very long on that one. We’ve been wondering if he was gonna resign for months and months. President Trump has been really hard on him ever since AG Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation.”

“Now they’re gonna fill that and Democrats are gonna crow about how President Trump obstructing justice with the Muller investigation. It remains to be seen what happens with regard to Mueller. This doesn’t directly affect that at all, however Jeff Sessions is out.”

“I should point out he’s done a very good job in many other ways. He’s gotten very tough on drugs amidst this awful opioid crisis. One of the worst epidemics in American history and he’s gotten really tough on drugs, reversed a lot of stupid Obama era policies. He’s gotten a lot tougher on illegal immigration. He’s actually enforcing laws now.”

“He’s made what was a very lawless DOJ under Barack Obama,” he said. “A corrupt a crooked lawless DOJ, he’s made it much more law and order centric. And actually his recusal, as frustrating as it is for Republicans and conservatives, does show that change because Loretta Lynch wouldn’t have recused herself from nothing. The Obama DOJ; Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, was so corrupt so so targeted President Obama’s political opponents and Jeff Sessions came in and he said we’re not gonna do that.”

Knowles is spot on. While a lot of folks were unhappy for the way Sessions handled the whole Mueller investigation stuff, the fact remains that he still ended up doing a whole lot of good for the Trump administration and the nation as a whole.

And as Knowles noted, Trump has a pretty decent track record for replacing good folks with even better folks in his administration. Let’s hope that continues from this point forward and that his next permanent choice to take over the job helps make our nation more just and upright than ever before.

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

Published

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
