The Sound of Silence

Democrats have been bullying Jeff Sessions for three days as he went through his Senate Confirmation Hearing for Attorney General. They've been grilling him on the rule of law and if he, as Attorney General, would stand up for the law even if the next President tried to take action contrary to the rule of law.  Weird that Democrats are suddenly worried about following the law.  They certainly haven't been for the last eight years.

I mentioned this before, but this is the real reason liberals are losing their minds and are so "afraid" now that they have lost the election, the House, and the Senate.  They are scared to death we'll do to them what what they have done to us the last eight years. Run rough shod over the Constitution and turn the Presidency into a Dictatorship.  Need a reminder?  Well, here is what Senator Ted Cruz (R) said at Jeff Sessions' hearing:

"When Eric Holder’s Department of Justice allowed illegally sold guns to Mexican gun traffickers, as part of Fast and Furious – guns that were later used to murder Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry – the Democratic members of this committee were silent."

"When the IRS illegally targeted United States citizens for exercising their First Amendment views and First Amendment roles in the political process, Democratic members of this committee were silent."

"When the Department of Justice used Operation Choke Point to target legal businesses because they disagreed politically with those businesses, the Democrats on this committee were silent."

"When the Obama Justice Department sent millions of dollars of taxpayer monies to sanctuary cities that were defying federal immigration law, the Democrats on this committee were silent."

"When the Obama administration refused to enforce federal immigration laws and unilaterally re-wrote this laws, the Democrats on this committee were silent."

"When the Obama administration released tens of thousands of criminal illegal aliens including rapists and murderers into the general population, the Democrats on this committee were silent."

"When the Department of Justice signed off on the Obama administration paying a nearly $2 billion ransom to Iran, contrary to federal law, the Democrats on this committee were silent."

"When the Obama administration ignored and rewrote provision after provision of Obamacare contrary to the text of the law, the Democrats on this committee were silent."

"When the Obama administration signed off on illegal recess appointments, that the  Supreme Court had to strike down unanimously, the Democrats on this committee were silent."

"And when the Obama administration released five Guantanamo terrorists, without the required notification of Congress, the Democrats on this committee were silent."

"Now, if we were to play a game of tit-for-tat, if what was good for the goose was good for the gander, then a Republican Attorney General should be equally partisan; equally disregard the law; should advance political preferences favored by the Republican Party."


Again, this is what keeps liberals up at night. Liberals can't imagine that while Republicans have control of the White House, the House, and the Senate; that Conservatives won't use all that power to destroy liberals...because that is what they'd do in a heartbeat.

When asked if that is what Republicans should do, Jeff Sessions stated clearly it was not, observing the "corrosive effect on the public confidence in the constitutional republic, which we are sworn to uphold" when government officials conduct themselves in that manner.

"That’s exactly right," said Cruz, stating that is why he is fully and enthusiastically supporting Sessions’ confirmation with "every degree of confidence you will follow the law faithfully and honestly. And that is the first and most important obligation of the attorney general."

"The most sacred of the duties of a government [is] to do equal and impartial justice to all its citizens."   ~ Thomas Jeffersons
