The NAACP is occupying Jeff Sessions’ Mobile office ‘until he withdraws as AG pick or we’re arrested’


Senate hearings are about to start next week in consideration of President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet picks, and heads of the NAACP and its Alabama branch have taken over Trump Attorney General pick Jeff Sessions’ Mobile office in preparation.

On Tuesday, President and CEO of the NAACP, Cornell Brooks posted a photo to Twitter captioned, “The @NAACP & @AlabamaNAACP are occupying the Mobile office of @jeffsessions–untill he withdraws as a AG nominee or we’re arrested.”

According to AL.com, the NAACP’s Tuesday action was one of many others being held across the state in opposition to Sessions’ nomination.

“As a matter of conscience, the NAACP has chosen not to remain silent on this critical matter. Our main concern is centered around the reality of voter suppression,” Hezekiah Johnson, head of the Birmingham NAACP said outside Sessions’ office in Birmingham.

“We have found no evidence of his ability, past or present, to be impartial and unbiased as the chief law enforcement officer of the United States of America, especially in the areas of civil rights, voting rights and equal protection under the law,” Johnson continued.

Trump first announced Sessions as his pick for Attorney General in mid-November. The pick was controversial, especially given the Alabama Senator’s alleged record of making racist comments. A 500-plus page transcript of Sessions’ 1986 confirmation hearings for a federal judgeship nomination revealed Sessions reportedly called the NAACP and the ACLU “un-American” and “Communist.”

Then arrest them. LOL

 

Typical liberals. They hate the democratic process. When something happens they don't like, they throw a fit then do stupid sit-ins, instead of voting. Voting doesn't mean shit to liberals thought, unless they win. If they lose they do their best to ignore the outcome and fuck everyone over.

Interesting, we hate the democratic process, yet it was conservatives who used the Majority Supreme Court to "Select" Bush the win, when the "Elect" Gore had the popular vote in America. And now again to use two thousand people to give the Tramp the win when Hillary had 3 million more American votes. Have you no shame?

 

Here is what conservatives do when they don't like what is happening.

voter suppression will always come back to the point of origination and funding .....

 

ALEC is directly tied to the emerging trend among state legislatures to consider voter ID laws.27

Using false allegations of “voter fraud,” right-wing politicians are pursuing policies that disenfranchise students and other at-risk voters — including the elderly and the poor — who are unlikely to have drivers’ licenses or other forms of photo ID.28

By suppressing the vote of such groups, ALEC’s model “Voter ID Act” grants an electoral advantage to Republicans while undermining the right to vote. In addition, ALEC wants to make it easier for corporations to participate in the political process.

Their Public Safety and Elections taskforce is co-chaired by Sean Parnell of the Center for Competitive Politics, one of the most vociferous pro-corporate election groups, and promotes model legislation that would devastate campaign finance reform and allow for greater corporate influence in elections.

Jeff SESSIONS has some gaps in his resume ......

 

There is fudging your résumé, and then there is whatever a couple of Donald Trump’s Cabinet appointments have been doing.

“Fudging” implies small changes to a résumé, the kinds of little white lies a person might commit to print with little chance of blowback. Maybe he wants to make a stretch of unemployment look shorter than it was. Maybe she exaggerates responsibilities at a previous job, to make herself sound more qualified for a new position.

Trump’s Cabinet nominees, on the other hand, are leaving out whole years and even decades of their records. It is a particularly cynical and silly move, since so much of what they are minimizing or outright erasing is part of the public record, easily dug up by any Democratic staffer, journalist or idiot with access to Google.

Take Steve Mnuchin, nominated to be America’s next secretary of the Treasury. As Vanity Fair noted not long ago, Mnuchin’s official GOP biography plays up his experience running the hedge fund Dune Capital Management and his limited time in Hollywood, where he earned three dozen credits as an executive producer, often a vanity title given to a movie’s financiers.

Left out of this bio is the 22 years Mnuchin split between working for Goldman Sachs, where he was eventually made a partner, and running OneWest, where he was CEO for six years, beginning just as the Great Recession was clobbering the economy in 2009. No big deal! Those 22 years make up only more than two-thirds of his adult working life.

There are plenty of reasons for Mnuchin to not want to draw attention to this part of his record. His future boss Donald Trump used Goldman Sachs as a cudgel to beat Hillary Clinton during the presidential campaign over paid speeches she gave to groups at the bank. The firm is also associated with the reckless gambles and greed that caused the Great Recession, and the name alone can cause the public to spit like a Jewish grandmother at the mention of it.

And OneWest stands accused of a vast ocean of unethical and downright inhumane behavior during the foreclosure crisis of a few years ago. This includes an infamous incident when the bank foreclosed on the home of a 90-year-old woman who accidentally shorted one mortgage payment by 27 cents.

All of this would be embarrassing for a president who is still claiming to be a populist wanting to “drain the swamp” and lift up the American people — at least, if Donald Trump were capable of feeling shame. But Trump won’t be the one in the hearing room, and this history, particularly the part at OneWest, could make for a very difficult grilling for Mnuchin, assuming Senate Democrats are willing to put up a fight.

Then there is Jeff Sessions, Trump’s nominee to take over as attorney general. The progressive advocacy group Alliance for Justice recently reviewed the questionnaire the Alabama senator submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee as part of the routine vetting all Cabinet nominees receive before confirmation hearings. And Sessions left some gaps that, when filled in, could lead to questions he would probably rather not answer.

Trump would have to spring some lifers out of prison to make a worse choice than this nasty racist bastard.

 

Sessions is a WORSE choice than Eric Holder? Are you KIDDING ME?

 

Eric Holder politicized the entire DOJ, and made reverse racism PART of their mandate... he made US ALL less safe, undermined the rule of LAW, and PROTECTED CORRUPT Liberal Politicians...

 

HE should go to Prison, for things he did WHILE he was SOS !!

Dismissal of U.S. attorneys controversy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

On December 7, 2006, the George W. Bush administration's Department of Justice ordered the unprecedented[1] midterm dismissal of seven United States Attorneys. Congressional investigations focused on whether the Department of Justice and the White House were using the U.S. Attorney positions for political advantage. Allegations were that some of the attorneys were targeted for dismissal to impede investigations of Republican politicians or that some were targeted for their failure to initiate investigations that would damage Democratic politicians or hamper Democratic-leaning voters.[2][3] The U.S. attorneys were replaced with interim appointees, under provisions in the 2005 USA PATRIOT Act reauthorization.[4][5][6] [7][8]

A subsequent report by the Justice Department Inspector General in October 2008 found that the process used to fire the first seven attorneys and two others dismissed around the same time was "arbitrary", "fundamentally flawed", and "raised doubts about the integrity of Department prosecution decisions".[9] In July 2010, the Department of Justice prosecutors closed the two-year investigation without filing charges after determining that the firing was inappropriately political, but not criminal, saying "Evidence did not demonstrate that any prosecutable criminal offense was committed with regard to the removal of David Iglesias. The investigative team also determined that the evidence did not warrant expanding the scope of the investigation beyond the removal of Iglesias."[10]

 

 

 

 

Fallout[edit]

By April 2007, there was some speculation that the dismissal of the US attorneys might affect cases of public corruption and voter fraud. According to the National Law Journal,

"Just the appearance of political influence in cases related to those firings, combined with the recent, unusual reversal of a federal public corruption conviction in Wisconsin [c.f., Georgia Thompson], some say, will spur aggressive defense lawyers to question the political motivation of prosecutors in certain cases; make magistrates and judges more skeptical of the evidence before them; and perhaps even chill line prosecutors in their pursuit of some indictments."[14]

By mid-September 2007, nine senior staff of the Department of Justice associated with the controversy had resigned.[39][40][41][42] The most prominent resignations include:

 

 

Alberto Gonzales

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales[43][44][45]

Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty;

Acting Associate Attorney General William W. Mercer resigned from the acting office prior to Senate confirmation hearings for the same position, and returned to his post as U.S. Attorney for Montana (he held dual positions);

Chief of staff for the Attorney General Kyle Sampson

Chief of Staff for the Deputy Attorney General Michael Elston;

Director of the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys (EOUSA) Michael A. Battle;

the subsequently appointed Director to the EOUSA, Bradley Schlozman, also the former acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division;

the Department of Justice's White House Liaison Monica Goodling

In June 2008, a grand jury was empaneled to consider criminal indictments against officials involved in the firings. The grand jury was presented evidence from ongoing investigations at the Department of Justice Inspector General's office and at the DOJ's Office of Professional Responsibility.[46]
