In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Sessions Would not Back Muslim Ban

Sen. Jeff Session, R-Ala., said Tuesday that he would not support a ban on all Muslims entering the United States as President-elect Trump’s attorney general,” the Washington Examiner reported.

“Would you support a law that says you can’t come to America because you’re a Muslim?” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked Sessions at his confirmation hearing at the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“No,” Sessions said.

Trump had suggested a ban during the campaign, though he subsequently rolled that back to potentially banning people from countries that produce terrorists.

  1. Trump never proposed a ban on Muslims coming to this country. He proposed a temporary ban on refugees or immigrants from volatile countries where there is no way to properly vet them, until we can properly vet them. Even if Sessions supports that, he properly asserts that he does not support a ban of Muslims the way the loaded, biased, racist question was asked.

    1. You are wrong, sir. He did propose a ban. This was pulled directly from his website, as of December 2015:

      “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

      Even the candidate himself, in June of 2016 stated, “I called for a ban after San Bernardino and was met with great scorn and anger. But now … many are saying that I was right to do so. And although the pause is temporary, we must find out what is going on. We have to do it,” he said. “It will be lifted, this ban, when and as a nation we’re in a position to properly and perfectly screen these people coming into our country.”

      So yes, he called for an across the board ban at several points during the campaign. He may have modified his rhetoric, but he in fact called for a ban.

      If you’re going to accuse someone as asking a, “loaded, biased, racist question,” have enough integrity to check your facts.

  2. Some day the Muslim problem will have to be addressed.

    Their belief system and the Sharia law can never be absorbed, as it is incomparable with ours.

    Fact: Over 107 Koran verses say to kill non believers. That’s us folks!

    Not racist just the facts.

    If you like your head you cannot keep your head.

  3. ““Would you support a law that says you can’t come to America because you’re a Muslim?” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.”

    With ‘friends’ like that, who needs enemies?

    1. PC answer. Hope he lied and backs a ban.

      As Illegals are a problem so are the crazy Muslims.

      Peace on their terms is what they want.

      Convert or die is what they mean.

  4. 15 min break.
    My oh my. What a President Sen Sessions would have been..amazing intellect and quiet determination to do the right thing.
    As someone who became a Trump supporter early on, way before anyone of note, he must have seen something or knows something about MrTrump that we have yet to discover.
    SenSessions is no man’s fool, not in the least.
    Congrats to MrTrump for choosing wisely by appointing SenSessions for this most difficult job.

    1. I was very impressed by his appearance today, but I liked him before this. The condescending attitudes of Leahey and Durbin, among others, had me ready to throw things at the TV. Suddenly, what Obama got away with, would be wrong if Trump did it. If it were me, I would have quoted Obama and told the Democrats: “elections have consequences, Trump won-you lost, deal with it.”

      1. Agree. I have long been a Jeff Sessions fan. Trump made an excellent choice and Sessions will serve him and the country well.

        A profoundly decent man.
