We're tryin' to keep up with current events here, so I meant to write this last night. As I keep saying, this is not a news site, but still, I did have something to say about Jeff Sessions and his resignation from the job of US Attorney General (meaning head of the cabinet level Dept. of Justice).
The feud between the President and his own appointed Attorney General is below my pay grade. I don't know all the details. Many had high hopes for former Senator (R-Alabama) Jeff Sessions on the immigration front, as, per Ann Coulter, who ought to know, he was extremely beneficial to Americans as a Senator. To me, Mr. Sessions was one of President Trump's best picks, though, I guess he could have done more in a position more directly involved with immigration. John Derbyshire wrote I Support Sessions vs Trump—Because Mueller Is A Disease of the Skin, Immigration A Disease of the Heart 2 months back. There are many good arguments back-and-forth in the 59 comments thereunder that lay out some of the specifics.
To read more arguments made after the resignation (or firing, as the case may be), one can the > 200 comments under this one-line Steve Sailer post from last night.
Read it all if you care, but I do have one specific beef with the outgoing Attorney General, and that is about something that is very much in his job description. The unfair "justice" meted out by local, state, and other law enforcement after the Charlottesville, Virginia attacks (see also here and here) on peaceful defenders of Southern landmarks was never investigated by the D.O.J. under Jeff Session, under President Trump. It was well within his purview to look into this and put a stop to some of the anarcho-tyranny that's been increasingly being implemented throughout the land. Here you get the guy you've been hoping for, for at least one high position in the executive branch of the Feral Government, and even this guy won't fight for the rights of Americans. Just on this point alone, I say go on home, Sleepy Jeff.
Will Kris Kobach get appointed to the position? We can only hope. The ctrl-left is having a collective shit-fit over the President appointing a temporary AG until a decision is made, as if that's something out of the ordinary. Hell, didn't Øb☭ma have a temp. in for quite a while there? That's just business as usual, and if that pisses the left off, and they are pining for Jeff Sessions, that's another reason that I'm glad he's out. We need a fighter, not a
