Jeff Sessions

Jeff Sessions has long been a man on a mission, even if parts of that mission are a bit archaic and clumsy.

Sessions, the acting Attorney General who has consistently drawn the ire of the President for his choice to recuse himself from the Russia election interference probe, is a bit of an old “fuddy-duddy” on the subject of drugs.  Specifically, he has been a staunch and vocal opponent to the legalization of marijuana, ostensibly standing on the figurative tracks long after that particular train has left the station.  Pot prohibition is ending, and Jeff Sessions isn’t ready to admit it.

However, there is a silver lining to all of this, insomuch that Jeff Sessions has an uncanny knack for going after drug money and the bad actors fueled by it.  That’s why today’s announcement from the Attorney General is of the utmost importance.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions held a press conference on Tuesday with officials from the Department of Justice, U.S. Treasury, and State Department to announce a “whole of government effort” to take down the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG).

Sessions said the drug cartel is “one of the five most dangerous transnational criminal organizations on the face of the earth and it is doing unimaginable damage to the people of this nation.”

Sessions said although it was formed only nine years ago, it has established its network around the world, including in Europe, Asia, and Australia.

“CJNG has a presence in cities across the United States from San Diego to Omaha to Roanoke to New York City to Orlando,” said Sessions, adding that the cartel is believed to traffic ten tons of cocaine and methamphetamines into the United States every month.

“They are in our crosshairs,” Sessions said. “This cartel is our top priority.”

“Every single day these cartels cross our borders, disrespect our sovereignty, deal poison and death to Americans all across this country,” Sessions said.

Of course, a full-scale legalization of marijuana in the United States would severely cut into profits for these dangerous drug cartels both by eliminating the cost effectiveness of trafficking in the plant, and by the reality of recreational marijuana’s ability to curb harder drug use in locales where it has been legalized.

Elizabeth Warren Not Interested In Getting Involved In Sanders-Clinton Feud, Says ‘I’m Not Going There’

Published

on

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has fallen behind both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in the polls, which is not a great sign this close to the Iowa caucuses, but at the end of the day, it’s still anyone’s game. With the primary so close, many in the Democratic Party have turned on each other and gone after one another in verbal jousting and mudslinging attacks, chief among them Warren and Sanders, with Warren accusing Sanders of saying he didn’t believe a woman could be president. While the smoke is just starting to clear on that a bit, the feud between Bernie and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is still alive, and Warren is refusing to get involved in the fray. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: Elizabeth Warren tried to skirt questions about Hillary Clinton’s claim “nobody likes” her rival for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders. “I’m not going there,” the Massachusetts senator, 70, told CBS Friday morning. Clinton, 72, in an interview published this week by the Hollywood Reporter, blasted the Vermont senator, her former 2016 Democratic primary opponent, as “a career politician,” saying she felt “so bad” that “people got sucked into” him. “He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” the former secretary of state told the outlet. “Bernie and I have worked together for a very long time, and we continue to do so. I’ve said all I’m going to say about this,” Warren said before turning to the topic of impeachment. Warren has obviously realized that her attacks against Bernie backfired on her in a big way so now she’s trying to avoid getting pulled into another battle that could potentially hurt her chances…

Brand New Poll Reveals That A Plurality Of Americans On Board With Soleimani Killing

Published

on

Liberals all across the country displayed their true colors by coming out in support of a radical Islamic terrorist, one who killed an untold number of American soldiers and horribly oppressed his own people in Iran after President Trump ordered the drone strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani. These folks despise the president so much that they took the side of a terrorist, strangely seeming to believe that their opinions on this would reflect the feelings of most Americans. A new poll proves that is totally not the case at all. In fact, a plurality of Americans support the president’s decision to take out Soleimani. Here’s more on the poll from The Washington Examiner: The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll released Friday found 41% of Americans approved of Trump authorizing Soleimani’s death while 30% of Americans opposed the authorization. While more Americans supported the killing than opposed it, 59% of Americans disapproved of Trump’s handling of foreign policy overall. The poll comes three weeks after the United States killed the Iranian terrorist leader. The strike came in response to Iranian-backed militias attacking the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. Trump described the killing as a “no bullshit” mission. Iran responded by firing over a dozen missiles at bases housing U.S. troops. The Iranian strikes injured 11 Americans but resulted in no deaths. Once again, this poll demonstrates that a lot of individuals in the Democratic Party are on the wrong side of an issue, led there by their own desire to see President Trump impeached and removed from office. In short, they have become so used to hating the president and attacking him over every move he makes that it has become their default reaction, even when he does something good, to criticize him and oppose him. Will this…
