Deplorable B Woodman Oct 06 2017 at 9:57 pm And a spine…….. KenH Oct 06 2017 at 1:22 am A) Drown the motherfucker B) FIRE his ass summarily I can’t see any other choices if her refusing to do the job WayneM Oct 06 2017 at 2:12 am Sessions showed great promise… I wonder how the Dems got to him? Halley Oct 06 2017 at 5:36 am Traditionally, severed horse heads have proven to be quite effective. Concerns about Sessions are certainly justified, but hope against hope, I’m in the Give-Them-More-Time camp, for now. The Deep State treasonous activity against the entire Trump administration is much more serious and insidious, I fear, than they are letting on. Imagine not being able to trust the CIA or FBI to not aid or abet the illegal Resistance… Delilah T. Oct 06 2017 at 10:37 pm Not how. W=H=E=N. WayneM Oct 07 2017 at 1:33 am Valid point, Delilah T Roland Deschain Oct 06 2017 at 3:45 am I do not think that it was just the Dems that were behind this. It is all of the entrenched politicians and beaurocrats, aka the Deep State. eon Oct 06 2017 at 6:50 am Over at the Boston Globe, Neil Swidey has the Deep State’s attitude toward this on display; If the elites go down, we’re all in trouble Self-proclaimed populists love to blame “over-educated know-it-alls” for the government’s ills. Now the scapegoating has taken a dangerous turn. http://www.bostonglobe.com/magazine/2017/10/05/elites-down-all-trouble/TSyELMq0d5a9At0oPRhXEP/story.html His rather smarmy, condescending rant boils down to; 1. We are the elite’ because we are inherently better than you. 2. We are credentialed because we got a marvelously better education than anybody else could ever possibly get. 3. You cannot run the world without us, and we will only run it on OUR terms. We and only we know how things must be done. 4. We are here to stay, and if you don’t “get it”, we will hit you with ever bit of power we have. 5. If you don’t STFD, STFU and obey, we will punish you. 6. And really, it’s for your own good, peasants. Now run along and make money to give to us while we decide how to further oppress you into Utopia. The fact that he could casually say this, even in the BG, tells you how deeply entrenched they are in their own self-regard, narcissism, and arrogance. And how much power they believe they have to punish “heretics”. clear ether eon GWB Oct 06 2017 at 6:58 am There’s only one real response to that. “Front rank kneel! Second rank hold fast!” MasterDiver Oct 06 2017 at 7:14 am The last bunch with that attitude came to a rather sticky end around 1789. Dr Guillotin’s invention got a LOT of use. Zar Belk Deplorable B Woodman Oct 06 2017 at 7:49 am The BG attitude: “Apres moi, le deluge” “After me, the flood”. S Hooks Oct 06 2017 at 10:10 am Don’t forget “L’Etat, c’est nous”. GruntGI Oct 06 2017 at 9:25 am eon, Thanks for posting that link…absolutely fascinating. So, here’ how I would respond to that little twit. 1. Yes the government does run on a cadre of experienced, long time civil servants. HOWEVER, the #1 reason that American government used to work for all the people was that those civil SERVANTS (emphasis on that word) were supposed to be APOLITICAL and support the policies of the current Administration, no matter which party was in power. This is sadly no longer the case. The Federal Government, especially politically charged agencies like the EPA, Justice Dept, and sadly, the upper echelons of the Intelligence Community are now stacked with liberal globalists and environmental whackos that have more loyalty to the “New World Order” and “Internationalism” than they do their own country. SO yes, us deplorables are suspicious of an entrenched bureaucracy that is no longer merely a servant of the people but an active participant in party politics and is ACTIVELY working to undermine this Administration, which was, after all legally elected. 2. The difference between “elite” that he cites in his screed and modern “elites” that those “elites” knew where they came from as many of them came from very blue collar backgrounds and were very grateful for their opportunities. The men who took us to the moon, to cite his example, were mostly white 🙂 and were hands on engineers and scientists, not puffy moron know-it alls like Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson…they actually did shit. 3. MOST IMPORTANTLY, these “elites” recognized their duty to SERVE America, not demand that the peasants bow down to their superiority. Bush 41, to use his example, was an elite, Yale educated, rich boy who VOLUNTEERED for combat duty in WWII and was shot down. Figure the odds, of 99% of those Ivy Leaguers signing up for the military today. Not to mention that ALL Americans in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, had some shared sacrifice via the draft to serve, draft dodgers not withstanding. Elites today are just entitled, well-educated morons who lack WISDOM, Experience, and the knowledge gained by sacrifice for something bigger than themselves. They expect loyalty without earning it, respect without giving it, and assume education=wisdom, which it most certainly does not. The only ELITE I recognize are those 1-2% of Americans who have put on a uniform, grabbed a weapon, and stood a post. Everyone else is just a basic citizen. Does that make me an elitist…hells yea… Robert Heinlein got it right in Starship Troopers…only those who have served and laid their lives on the line should get the benefits of citizenship…keep the riffraff like this moron from infecting us with their poltroonery. Rant done, happy Friday….still patiently 🙂 waiting for the start of the Redvolution. Spin Drift Oct 06 2017 at 9:32 am I wonder if they have ever seen the 1998 movie “Antz?” Quite the parable, Aesop would be proud. Spin War Damn Eagle Pamela Oct 06 2017 at 12:11 pm The last time someone told me something was for my own good, I whacked his nose and ground my heel into his nuts. NotYetInACamp Oct 06 2017 at 12:59 pm The consequence of this globalism that these scoundrels, thieves, and self appointed tyrants is one they missed that is right in front of their eyes. That global reach they are so gleeful about setting into place works both ways. Delilah T. Oct 06 2017 at 9:30 pm Didn’t Stalin shoot the elites… or something like that? Deplorable B Woodman Oct 06 2017 at 5:52 am Ok. Got it. The Creature From the Black Lagoon lives in the Deep State swamp. And does not like and will not aid in the draining thereof. And if I remember the movies, The Creature was more disposed to trying to kill / get rid of the outsiders who were invading his swamp. So now (to mix movies and metaphors), “If you’re going to shoot, shoot. Don’t talk.” PaulS Oct 06 2017 at 8:21 am Ya got to be will’n. Bill G Oct 06 2017 at 5:56 am Any threat to the status quo will be thoroughly investigated; individually and their family. Any handle found will be applied. Has that happened here? I dunno and I hope not; that it’s just being thorough. But something has to happen somewhere, some time. Paladin Oct 06 2017 at 6:13 am I had such high hopes. Wotan Oct 06 2017 at 6:47 am Roland – Do not leave out “stranded” American Islamicists and their benefactors! DASTARDLY DAN Oct 06 2017 at 8:07 am I’m as our of patience as anyone, but I have to wonder if he’s biding his time, gathering evidence, setting up an ironclad case. Hey, I can dream, can’t I? Pamela Oct 06 2017 at 8:29 am Hmm, frying pan or a slow turning on a spit… Arkelk Oct 06 2017 at 9:22 am I think he should be given more time. It takes time to build solid cases when the usual means are of questionable truth and value. Dems seems to have a force field against most shame and even crimes, while repubs and non-lefty independents are hounded out of office for lesser situations. John Oct 06 2017 at 6:04 pm It is almost a universal Democrat attitude. It ain’t illegal if you don’t serve time. JTPatriot Oct 06 2017 at 9:23 am I really never thought I would say this, but Sessions is looking like a failure. I don’t understand it, except maybe that he was all bull and no horn. I’m very disappointed and I just can’t defend the man any more. DAMMIT. This is not what we needed right now, Chris. We need some legal WINS, and right quick! Victor Oct 06 2017 at 9:24 am Going to comment on the NRA betrayal? JTC Oct 06 2017 at 12:16 pm NOT betrayal, rather very strategic pre-emptory move…put that junk into NFA and get mufflers out of it. Make the lefties think they won something until they realize later that enactment and enforcement of a ban on 3d printed piece of plastic with a spring is moot. And as I’ve said, I see DT’s dealmaking hand in nra’s position. Do you think he too has betrayed you, or is he just a lot smarter than you think? JTC Oct 06 2017 at 12:19 pm Not that betrayal is not a thing on an epic scale and from every side and depth of the swamp and the state, but mostly much more surreptitious, as with weasel-boy Sessions here. Kafiroon Oct 06 2017 at 12:59 pm I can go with them banning “bump stocks” as I see them as useless. But. I am totally concerned with the vague language that will also be part of this that the criminals in ATF will interpret to confiscate anything they decide they do not like. Such as changing to a better trigger assembly. I also do not like yielding without an intense fight as more of the camels front end is in the tent. JTC Oct 06 2017 at 1:27 pm Understand the sentiment of yielding, that’s why as a pre-emptory proposal we can be very specific, not banning this junk but classifying it as NFA negates the camel’s nose thing…and also very specific as to quid pro quo on mufflers. The anti’s are not used to any of that. Delilah T. Oct 06 2017 at 9:34 pm The Squawkers tend to focus on things they don’t understand but make them feel threatened by awareness of them. JTC’s right: an offside move to distract the opposition,and while they’re busy chasing their tails over it,we move on. Halley Oct 06 2017 at 1:23 pm Seems to me President Trump has had to spend much of this year just finding out who he can trust and who is a Deep State plant. It hasn’t helped that “intelligence” agencies have been corrupted, top to bottom, by BrockInsane O’Bomber. Hopefully the Secret Services have been thoroughly drained of swampiness… markm Oct 06 2017 at 2:10 pm @GruntGI: We once created an apolitical civil service WHEN WE STILL HAD A GOVERNMENT OF LIMITED POWERS. But when government became unlimited, everything became a political issue. Under those conditions, the civil service could not avoid corruption in the long run. GruntGI Oct 06 2017 at 3:17 pm True…liberals can’t help but make everything political…THEIR politics… JTC Oct 06 2017 at 2:29 pm One of the most honest and accurate pieces you’ll see from an anti…a true awakening. Something we need a lot more of is people who are willing to look, listen, and and learn from facts instead of the script of their owners. In particular the realization and admission that there is no such thing as “gun violence”…I hate that term. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/opinion-i-used-to-think-gun-control-was-the-answer-my-research-told-me-otherwise/ar-AAsRR7y It is the violence, illness, and psychopathy of some people that is the enemy and the answer. Pretty shocked to see this published by the WaPo, props to them for it. That is a rarity among people whose real concern and agenda has nothing to do with their concern for victims and everything to do with concern for themselves and their reign. Kafiroon Oct 06 2017 at 3:33 pm Not quite up to the standards of “negotiation” as seen in 5TH Element, But, I like his thinking. http://raconteurreport.blogspot.com/2017/10/common-sense-guns-laws-time-has-come.html JTC Oct 06 2017 at 4:02 pm All good, but speaking of kneejerk he should realize that nra is a good part of why we got Trump. And sticking with the bump-crap for cans deal along with the proposal coming from our side not DiFi or any of the usual suspects is how we get that done. The other nine “laws” while no doubt common-sensical, are where the tl;dr thing comes in…for now. One solid deal at a time; the artist of them will tell you never to confuse the opposition and make their heads explode until you get what you want and then move on to the next one. Some tongue-in-cheek humor there, but they won’t get it, they got no sense of humor at all…or common sense. Delilah T. Oct 06 2017 at 9:41 pm It ain’t the guns. It’s the users. Hodgkinson (shot Scalise) was a liberal who hated Trump. Evidence is pointing to Paddock as being the same, but not confirmed yet. I was as surprised as any of the rest of you about Sessions. I wonder if that was why Pres. Trump went out of town….? Hmmmm….. The air is thick with arrogance from that side of the fence, and when someone is an arrogant ass,what is most likely to trip him/them up? You all do know why spiders weave webs, don’t you? Pamela Oct 06 2017 at 11:26 pm To entrap their dinner and suck the life juices out of them. BF Hall Oct 06 2017 at 11:47 pm Looks like Sessions has over-drawn his benefit-of-the-doubt account.
