    Fauxahontas is a drama queen. A law professor from Harvard -- even a fake Indian one -- knows, or should damn well know, the rules of debate in the Senate.

    I'll bet dollars to doughnuts she knew exactly what would happen and planned the whole thing for dramatic effect to portray herself as some kind of "victim."

    She ought to resign from the Senate and go live with her tribe in Oklahoma, IMHO.

    >I don’t understand why McConnell forced Sen. Warren to sit down and shut up.

    Because she needed to be told. Her voice isn't hillary-tier unpleasant but its pretty bad. I just don't understand how he managed to get the balls to do it.

    >He created another opportunity for the Left to slam the GOP as sexists.

    Meh. They tried that all 2016 and it didn't work. White women went 53% for Trump.

    >If he had let her speak her piece there would have been no coverage of her speech.
    There would have been coverage, they just wouldn't have gotten the easily digestible "she persists" meme. I'm skeptical that this is getting much traction beyond cat ladies and nasty women.

    I think if the cat ladies want to run with "she persists" we should try to popularize "the senator will take her seat".

    , @Anon7
    It takes a strong stomach to listen to Warren worshipping Coretta King - women are always the important ones, remember that, her husband was a nobody - her unctuous tone suggested that cutting off the words of Coretta on the floor of the Senate was like forbidding a parishioner to repeat the words of Jesus in church.

    I'll bet Warren's numbers are soft in the black community; as far as I know, people who support her are more likely to be white, well-to-do, and well-educated. She wouldn't happen to be up for re-election in 2018, would she? Well, yes.
    , @Mr. Anon
    On the whole, it would have been better to let her speak. Now she can claim that the Republicans suppressed the opinions of a secular saint. I don't think it would have swayed any Republican votes, and only they were necessary to get Sessions appointed.

    At this point, it may be somewhat personal on McConnell's part. Warren voted against confirmation of his wife, Elaine Chao, as Secretary of Transporation. Warren was only one of six senators to do so.

    I don’t understand why McConnell forced Sen. Warren to sit down and shut up.

    That, and the Senate really does have certain rules and traditions (among other things, this cuts down on duels). One of those rules is that you are not allowed to personally insult other Senators. The Senate Democrats are desperate to rile up their base and have been trampling the traditions of the Senate - a couple of black Senators took the witness stand and "testified" against Sessions - again something that sitting Senators NEVER do to each other. There is no reason why McConnell should allow the "world's greatest deliberative body" to be turned into a soapbox for Democrat fundraising.

    Democrats have no sense of irony - the letter from Coretta King that Senator Faucahontas was reading was from 1986, when Barack was still fresh off of his adventures with the Choom Gang.

    She was indirectly assailing the character of a sitting Senator on the Senate floor and then pretending that was ok because of whom she was quoting.

    If shutting her up makes some women hate the GOP, why would the GOP care about their support?

A man whose rich record includes not only the spewing of venom against both whites as well as Jews but also incitement to murder, tortious libel and brazen tax evasion (to say nothing of virulent "homophobia"), Sharpton spoke to standing ovation at the 2004 Democratic National Convention and was honored numerous times by both Barack Obama as well as New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

    Supreme Court Nominee Calls Trump’s Attacks on Judiciary ‘Demoralizing’

    http://immigrationimpact.com/2017/02/01/supreme-court-nominee-neil-gorsuch-immigration/

    Judge Gorsuch’s record indicates that he is neither a staunch defender nor a harsh critic of immigrants’ rights. In his time on the bench, Judge Gorsuch has dealt with only a handful of prominent immigration law cases. Of those, he has ruled in favor of the immigrant slightly less than half of the time.

  22. The roll call vote was 52-47 with Manchin voting in favor and Sessions voting present. In 2009 Sessions voted to confirm Holder solely because of the way he had been treated by Senate Democrats during his judicial appointment in the 80s. It was an effort at defusing the partisanship of the Senate. I wonder if he regrets that after seeing how they turned around and smeared him now.

    I am mostly in agreement with you, but must differ with you that "her voice isn’t Hillary-tier unpleasant." When Warren was denouncing Trump while campaigning for Hillary, I couldn't believe how shrill and hysterical she sounded. She sounded like she could barely keep her emotions in check, like a woman at the brink of bursting into tears in the middle of a fierce marital spat. I thought, "No way will this woman ever win national office. She's every man's worst nightmare." (Okay, maybe she shares that distinction with Hillary and a few others.)
  25. Nobody cares about yet another grandstanding episode from hysterical Democrats. It’s kind of one of the many reasons why Donald Trump got elected. Elizabeth Warren has plenty of opportunities to virtue signal and grandstand in these coming years anyway.

    Great news about Sessions making it in. This should hopefully close the book on government-sponsored anarcho-tyranny for at least the next eight years. I wonder what George Soros is thinking: either step up the fake protests or curtail them knowing that with Trump, Bannon, Miller, and Sessions that they might start going after him.

    The new AG has a lot on his plate:
    1. Campus violence - investigate, infiltrate find out out exactly what is going on and how far up it goes
    2. Illegal voting - just the facts ma'am.
    3. 'Bob Creamer' investigation - bringing together the themes of 1 and 2 above and professional, political involvement in all the above.
    4. Immigration racketeering.

    That's just a start.

    They ought to investigate a certain DC pizza place and its owner and patrons as well. There may or may not be hard evidence of the pedophile stuff that has undoubtedly been going on, but if you look hard enough at that many democrat politicians you will find serious crimes of some sort. Investigating pizza gate will trigger and distract the left and make life difficult for the politicos that will be in charge of fighting against Trump and Sessions other important work. Any time they try to fight against Trump he can say “aren’t you under investigation in connection with a pedophile ring?” Which ought to shut them up

  43. Cotton’s proactive stance on immigration control is a very pleasant surprise. Whether or not it’s motivated by opportunism is beside the point. Whatever its motivation, it’s all to the good in contributing to a sane immigration policy.

    Indeed. I think it’s better to have pols who support borders sanity out of patriotism, rather than opportunism.

    But opportunism leading people to support borders sanity is how you win.

    Let's hope President Trump now appoints a Special Prosecutor to help Hillary Clinton clarify her "situation":

    It takes a strong stomach to listen to Warren worshipping Coretta King - women are always the important ones, remember that, her husband was a nobody - her unctuous tone suggested that cutting off the words of Coretta on the floor of the Senate was like forbidding a parishioner to repeat the words of Jesus in church.

    I'll bet Warren's numbers are soft in the black community; as far as I know, people who support her are more likely to be white, well-to-do, and well-educated. She wouldn't happen to be up for re-election in 2018, would she? Well, yes.

    She’s a senator from MA. Appealing to blacks is not necessary.

    Intelligent, I don't disagree with you as much as I don't think it was necessary to give women another reason to hate the GOP.

    She was indirectly assailing the character of a sitting Senator on the Senate floor and then pretending that was ok because of whom she was quoting.

    If shutting her up makes some women hate the GOP, why would the GOP care about their support?

    Actually the better question is how the hell did the 19th Amendment pass? Our great-granddads were either fools or cowards.

    The roll call vote was 52-47 with Manchin voting in favor and Sessions voting present. In 2009 Sessions voted to confirm Holder solely because of the way he had been treated by Senate Democrats during his judicial appointment in the 80s. It was an effort at defusing the partisanship of the Senate. I wonder if he regrets that after seeing how they turned around and smeared him now.

    “These people treated me dishonorably back in the day so I’ll treat one of them honorably now so that they start behaving honorably in the future.”

    Sessions suffers from the white man’s greatest affliction: projecting one’s own virtues and character onto others.

  48. I hope Trump keeps him on a short leash when it comes to issues other than immigration enforcement. Religious Right-style moral policing will turn off the secular centrists and rightists who are necessary to win future elections.

  50. Attorney General Jeff Sessions must put a halt to the utter lawlessness that has taken over many parts of the United States.

    Black parts of cities and states have been allowed by Obama and the Obama-controlled US Justice Department to descend into riotous areas of wanton carnage. Both Republicans and Democrats have allowed so-called “sanctuary cities” to give safe harbor to illegal alien invaders.

    President Trump and Attorney General Sessions must confront and defeat those political actors who flout the immigration laws of the United States. The so-called “sanctuary cities” and “sanctuary states” and “sanctuary campuses” must be brought to heel.

    President Trump and Attorney General Sessions will win that fight. They will force the Democrats, and some Republicans, to defend illegal alien invaders. President Trump and Attorney General Sessions will win the media battle, they will win the legal battle and they will win the political battle over ending the threat and danger that illegal alien invaders pose to the safety and security of the United States.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP AND ATTORNEY GENERAL SESSIONS

    Your concern trolling is noted.

    More than 50% of white women voted for Trump. Trump starts implementing his programs more, that number will climb to 75% come 2020.

    Winning is what women vote for. Virtue-signalling feminism is for the fringes who pretend they are mainstream. Feminism is cancer.

    whorefinder, Thank you and everyone else who replied to my “concern trolling.” I hear what you say but I still think that it was fodder for the Left, but really, whorefinder trolling?

  52. The replacement pick to fill Jeff Sessions’ vacated US Senate seat is a former basketball player who is almost 7 feet tall. That’s taller than Steve Sailer. I hope Luther Strange has the guts, heart and brains that Jeff Sessions brought to the US Senate.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions must strike while the iron is hot. Give the politicians who are protecting illegal alien invaders in so-called “sanctuary jurisdictions” or “sanctuary cities” 3 days to comply with the law. After the 3 days is up, President Trump and Attorney General Sessions should take all legal measures to unleash hell upon these lawless politician rodents.

  54. Let’s be realistic here folks. What will/can he actually accomplish?

    He probably won’t do any of the bad things Holder did but will he actually do positive things as opposed to not doing bad things? In other words, where will he innovate?

    Holder could go in on state and local cases because the media welcomed the support but I imagine those sort of politicians(if Democract) will push back against meddling from outside.

  55. The Pew Research Center is a tax dodge outfit. PEW pushes open borders mass immigration and amnesty for illegal alien invaders. PEW calls illegal alien invaders “unauthorized immigrants.” PEW suggests that there are only 11.1 million illegal alien invaders in the USA. Some say there are upwards of 30 million illegal alien invaders in the United States.

    Regardless of the open borders enthusiasm of PEW, their information makes it clear that New York City and Los Angeles have the two biggest populations of illegal alien invaders. Perhaps that is why former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has found his role in the Trump administration to be limited. Giuliani supported the policy of keeping New York City a “sanctuary city” for illegal alien invaders while he was mayor.

    President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should go after the politicians in New York City and Los Angeles in a fierce manner to encourage other politicians elsewhere to comply with US immigration law. New York City and Los Angeles are also the two cities that have a high concentration of corporate propaganda apparatus assets. President Trump should welcome the nasty response from the media scum and rancid politicians in New York and Los Angeles who flout US immigration law by rewarding illegal alien invaders with safe harbor.

    The American people will be on the side of the Trump administration when the battle begins. The Democrats will be forced to defend illegal alien invaders and the Trump administration will be seen defending the RULE OF LAW.

  56. I’m also hoping for better “rules of law”; I think Trump’s immigration executive order was too broad. For example, foreign citizens with legitimate US visas (like a kid returning to school) apparently have some protections.

    Trump will probably need to amend his order, but that’s par for the course. He needs to start firing his way to a better legal staff (he can start with whoever prepared that order) and they all need to settle in for the long term. Liberals will never accept Trump as the president, they will never allow the “Trump is Hitler” meme to die, they will not give up one inch of the miles of ground they’ve gained without kicking and screaming the whole way.

    Stay tough, Mr. President!

    >I don’t understand why McConnell forced Sen. Warren to sit down and shut up.

    Because she needed to be told. Her voice isn't hillary-tier unpleasant but its pretty bad. I just don't understand how he managed to get the balls to do it.

    >He created another opportunity for the Left to slam the GOP as sexists.

    Meh. They tried that all 2016 and it didn't work. White women went 53% for Trump.

    >If he had let her speak her piece there would have been no coverage of her speech.
    There would have been coverage, they just wouldn't have gotten the easily digestible "she persists" meme. I'm skeptical that this is getting much traction beyond cat ladies and nasty women.

    I think if the cat ladies want to run with "she persists" we should try to popularize "the senator will take her seat".

    I am mostly in agreement with you, but must differ with you that “her voice isn’t Hillary-tier unpleasant.” When Warren was denouncing Trump while campaigning for Hillary, I couldn’t believe how shrill and hysterical she sounded. She sounded like she could barely keep her emotions in check, like a woman at the brink of bursting into tears in the middle of a fierce marital spat. I thought, “No way will this woman ever win national office. She’s every man’s worst nightmare.” (Okay, maybe she shares that distinction with Hillary and a few others.)
