Senator Jeff Sessions For Attorney General

Recommended Posts

He was actually denied a judgeship by a republican run senate judiciary back in the 80's for being too racist.  The republicans found him too racist. Hahaha...


Then this:


Thomas Figures, an assistant US attorney who worked for Sessions, testified that Sessions joked about the Ku Klux Klan, saying that he thought Klan members were “OK, until he learned that they smoked marijuana.”

With Sessions appointment to AG, does marijuana legalization go up in smoke?


When Jeff Sessions sits before his colleagues in the United States Senate for his confirmation early next year, you're certain to hear again about a joke he told decades ago. It came up in his last confirmation hearing in 1986, when the Senate rejected his appointment to the federal bench.

Paraphrasing here, but what Sessions is said to have said went something like this ...

I didn't think the Klan were such bad guys until I found out they smoked marijuana.

Sessions has said that he meant it as a joke and that it doesn't in anyway reflect how he feels about the hate group. To be certain, though, Sessions will be grilled on his attitude toward civil rights.

But there's another thing here that means a lot for a Trump Justice Department -- the end of that joke, marijuana.

While Sessions's attitude toward civil rights enforcement is up in the air, his thoughts on drug enforcement are clear. Sessions believes strongly that marijuana is an evil substance and that the Obama administration's enforcement of drug laws has been weak. Now that Sessions could be in the driver's seat at the U.S. Justice Department, that could soon change.<<

We as a nation have "jumped the shark".
