All That’s Left Is For Trump To Go Out On 5th Ave And Shoot Someone – ‘Jeff Sessions may order independent investigation of Barack Obama’s Department of Justice’

I wouldn’t be surprised at Republicans opening just 1 more BENGHAZI investigation.

Less then a week after the sitting President Trump – accused the former President – Obama – of spying on him while offering zero evidence – now Trump is going to use every department he can to dismantle and/or discredit the Social Contract and Obama.

And all democrats do is wring their hands……

And all journalists do is chase the next shinny object – CIA leaks and Trumpcare.

I have yet to hear even 1 single Democrat to call it Trumpcare.

‘Sessions is openly musing about appointing a special prosecutor to investigate former President Barack Obamas DOJ’.

‘Sessions left the door open for a special counsel to take the lead on the investigation into alleged Obama-era scandals during an interview with conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt on Thursday.’

‘The right-wing commentator pressed the embattled attorney general on his plans to investigate the departments probe of Hillary Clintons use of a private email server under former attorney general Loretta Lynch’.

‘Hewitt also asked Sessions about two other favorite conservative boogeymen: what Republicans argue was politically-motivated scrutiny against Tea Party organization seeking non-profit status by the IRS, and the scheme in which federal law enforcement allowed gun dealers to sell firearms to illegal straw buyers known as Fast and Furious’.

It seems Republicans would not have approved of the Boston Tea PArty – but just 8 short years ago – came the tea party.

Oh I see. Only Republicans can protest………

Thomas Jefferson – “[And] what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?”

“Since the election of President Trump, Republican lawmakers in at least 18 states have introduced or voted on legislation to curb mass protests in what civil liberties experts are calling ‘an attack on protest rights throughout the states,’” the Washington Post reports.

  • “Some are introducing bills because they say they’re necessary to counter the actions of ‘paid’ or ‘professional’ protesters who set out to intimidate or disrupt, a common accusation that experts agree is largely overstated…’
  • ‘Others, like the sponsors of a bill in Minnesota, say the measures are necessary to protect public safety on highways’.
  • ‘Still other bills, in states like Oklahoma and South Dakota, are intended to discourage protesting related to oil pipelines.”

“The son of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali was detained for hours by immigration officials at a Florida airport,” a family friend told the Louisville Courier-Journal’.

“Officials held and questioned Ali Jr. for nearly two hours, repeatedly asking him, ‘Where did you get your name from?’ and ‘Are you Muslim?’ When Ali Jr. responded that yes, he is a Muslim, the officers kept questioning him about his religion and where he was born’.

‘Ali Jr. was born in Philadelphia in 1972 and holds a U.S. passport.”

Republican McCarthyism – ‘Arizona Senate votes to seize assets of those who plan, participate in protests that turn violent’

‘Guilt by association’.

‘But Sen. John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills, said that chilling effect is aimed at a very specific group of protesters’.

“A lot of them are ideologues, some of them are anarchists,’’ Kavanagh continued. “But this stuff is all planned.’’

Just like the Founding Fathers??????????

“Wouldn’t you rather stop a riot before it starts?’’ Kavanagh asked colleagues during debate’.

The thought police.

‘Claiming people are being paid to riot, Republican state senators voted Wednesday to give police new power to arrest anyone who is involved in a peaceful demonstration that may turn bad — even before anything actually happened’.

‘SB1142 expands the state’s racketeering laws, now aimed at organized crime, to also include rioting’.

‘And it redefines what constitutes rioting to include actions that result in damage to the property of others’.

‘But the real heart of the legislation is what Democrats say is the guilt by association — and giving the government the right to criminally prosecute and seize the assets of everyone who planned a protest and everyone who participated’.
