SESSIONS Just OVERSTEPPED His Boundaries! GET THE HELL OUT NOW!

Published

on

Despite the complete failure of the “War on Drugs” where the only winner that has emerged since its inception in the 1980s has been drugs themselves, current Attorney General Jeff Sessions has chosen to throw the 10th amendment out the window.  He is now making plans to pursue a broad federal crackdown on marijuana in states that have legalized with almost single-minded glee.

Sessions made the announcement Thursday that he plans to end the ongoing policy to tread lightly on enforcing federal U.S. marijuana laws, allowing state laws to dictate. The declaration renewed anxiety, confusion, and uncertainty that has long shadowed the bright green leafy plant still forbidden under federal law but now legal in a majority of states medicinally and in a handful of those for recreational purposes.

Previous policies advised prosecutors to not waste tax dollars to pursue pot growers and sellers that were abiding by state laws and guidelines, but instead to go after more flagrant violations such as trafficking across state lines to states where marijuana is still prohibited or selling to minors. Under this policy, the business has blossomed into a sophisticated, multimillion-dollar industry feeding state government programs with tax dollars. However, marijuana still remains illegal under the federal Controlled Substances Act.

This buzzkill to the blossoming and highly profitable marijuana industry came just days after California opened what is expected to be the world’s largest legal pot market. Naturally, the states that have legalized the use of the controversial plant immediately cried foul. There are so far 29 states where marijuana is available medically, eight of which also permit it to be used recreationally.California was the most recent to pass laws creating what is now the world’s largest legal pot market just went into effect on New Year’s Day.

Sessions and his cronies blame legalization for a host of issues, including the trafficking of black market weed – which would not exist were the plant not illegal in the first place – however, Sessions fails to see that point. Many authorities also claim concern about stoned drivers and claim widespread acceptance of the plant would increase its appeal as a so-called “gateway drug” leading to potential addiction issues. Meanwhile, advocates for legalization argue the plant classified in the same category as heroin that does not meet the definition for “Schedule I” designation has medicinal qualities and causes less harm than alcohol. The DEA places marijuana in the same category as known addictive substances such as heroin, ecstasy, and peyote.

Advocates argue that the plant does have medicinal qualities and use, and is considerably less dangerous and harmful than alcohol even. Many believe the government needs to focus efforts on the rampant opioid abuse and allow a regulated marijuana market that will reduce crime by eliminating the need for a black market.

Many cancer patients use marijuana for relief through brutal chemotherapy treatments.  Marijuana helps cancer patients alleviate nausea and vomiting commonly found in chemotherapy treatment. It also helps with the reduction of anxiety, improved sleep, improved appetite, and frequency of eating, also found to be common issues among cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments and other chronic illnesses.  Medical marijuana also is used to treat diseases or symptoms from diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’sAIDS/HIV patients, arthritis, asthma, Chron’s Disease, epilepsy, and glaucoma, among others.

The recent memo released by Sessions  will allow “federal prosecutors where pot is legal decide how aggressively to enforce federal marijuana laws.” It also reminds them to take into consideration the “federal law enforcement priorities set by the Attorney General” when deciding what alleged crimes to pursue. The 1-page memo does not offer any indication of exactly what those priorities are but Sessions has made no secret of his hatred of marijuana and his belief that it’s a moral rot that “good people” stay away from. Sessions has also strengthened the federal government’s position on civil asset forfeiture brought about as a part of the “War on Drugs.”

Civil asset forfeiture is the controversial process in which law enforcement officers take assets from persons suspected of involvement with a crime or illegal activity without due process.  Due process is a fundamental part of the United States Consitution, a process so vitally important to our foundation our founding fathers saw fit to mention it TWICE – the only principle to claim such.

Sessions is once quoted as saying that marijuana—a drug that cannot cause overdoses—is “only slightly less awful” than heroin—a drug that kills thousands of Americans every year.

One of the first things he did as AG was review marijuana policies. The AP reports –

Sessions’ policy will let U.S. attorneys across the country decide what kinds of federal resources to devote to marijuana enforcement based on what they see as priorities in their districts, the people familiar with the decision said.

Sessions and some law enforcement officials in states such as Colorado blame legalization for a number of problems, including drug traffickers that have taken advantage of lax marijuana laws to hide in plain sight, illegally growing and shipping the drug across state lines, where it can sell for much more. The decision was a win for pot opponents who had been urging Sessions to take action.

“There is no more safe haven with regard to the federal government and marijuana, but it’s also the beginning of the story and not the end,” said Kevin Sabet, president and CEO of Smart Approaches to Marijuana, who was among several anti-marijuana advocates who met with Sessions last month. “This is a victory. It’s going to dry up a lot of the institutional investment that has gone toward marijuana in the last five years.”

Sessions has also allegedly said that he thought the terrorist group the Ku Klux Klan was “OK until I found out they smoked pot.” This was one of the comments brought up in Sessions’ confirmation hearing under the Reagan administration for his first nomination as Attorney General.  It, among other things brought to light, prompted the Reagan administration to rescind their nomination.

By contrast, President Donald Trump himself has been uncharacteristically silent about his thoughts on pot legalization. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle and at both the federal and state levels who back legal marijuana disavowed Sessions’ announcement. Many state officials are insisting their state’s policies toward the cannabis business will not change.

According to Steve Davenport, a researcher on cannabis policy at the RAND Corporation, it is unlikely Sessions could do much to hurt the medical marijuana world at least for now, thanks to the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer Amendment passed in 2014 as a part of a spending bill; it prevents the Department of Justice from spending funds to interfere with medical marijuana state laws. However, the amendment is temporary and needs to be re-approved every fiscal year. The recreational pot industry, however, could be in more immediate danger.

 

“Sessions’ decision has the potential to slow down or even re-shape the burgeoning recreational cannabis industry, but the magnitude of the effect will depend on how this announcement is followed up by enforcement actions,” Davenport said.

BREAKING!! Gowdy Just Exposed ‘Secret Society’ Plotting Trump Assassination

IT KEEPS GETTING WORSE!!!

Published

on

It should come as no great surprise that President Trump has a lot of opponents in Washington. To be fair, they made their positions clear long before he took office, and have been sticking to them ever since. The opposition was made even clearer with the Russia collusion investigation that has been launched and drug out for the past year. Many of us hoped that even though the left was violently opposed to President Trump and many of his policies, they wouldn’t actually resort to violence to silence him. We might have been wrong.

It’s a perfectly legal recourse for a party who doesn’t believe in a candidate or President to check him or her out thoroughly and see if there are any inconsistencies that can be exploited for the purpose of removing them from office. What isn’t perfectly legal is having forces within the Justice Department set about falsifying evidence, or withholding it from a congressional probe, but that is just what’s been happening.

The FBI was supposed to be investigating President Trump’s campaign, but when it became clear that they were compromised, Congress started to investigate some of the members of that special investigation. What they found was proof positive that many laws were broken in an effort to keep President Trump from office. Leading the charge against the injustices in the FBI is former prosecutor and current Representative Trey Gowdy along with Representative John Ratcliffe. According to Real Clear Politics, they informed Fox News that this information could spell the end of some careers on Capitol Hill:

“Reps. Trey Gowdy and John Ratcliffe join FNC’s Martha McCallum to talk about another newly released text message between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. This time, Strzok implies a “secret society” of federal agents worked to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president.

‘It is possible these text messages that are missing, perhaps they really were lost. Perhaps it is another strange coincidence,’ Ratcliffe said. “It is harder and harder for us to explain one strange coincidence after another.”

‘We know that Strzok and Page had an intense anti-Trump bias,’ he said. ‘And that’s OK, so long as they check it at the door and do their job. We learned today in the thousands of text messages we have reviewed, that perhaps they may not have done that. We know about this ‘insurance policy’ that was referenced trying to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president.’

Ratcliffe continued: ‘We learned today about information that in the immediate aftermath of his election, there may have been a ‘secret society’ of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI, to include Page and Strzok, working against him. I’m not saying that actually happened, but when folks speak in those terms, they need to come forward to explain the context.’

About the ‘secret society,’ Gowdy said: ‘You have this insurance policy in Spring 2016, and then the day after the election, what they really didn’t want to have happen, there is a text exchange between these two FBI agents, these supposed to be fact-centric FBI agents saying, ‘Perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society.’ So I’m going to want to know what secret society you are talking about, because you’re supposed to be investigating objectively the person who just won the electoral college. So yeah — I’m going to want to know.’

The evidence that these two bring paints a scary picture as to what has been happening behind closed doors. We trust those in law enforcement to look out for the best interests of the nation. This is just the opposite; they seem to be looking for their own best interests, and the laws and will of the people are no more than an after thought, or a punishment to be avoided.

According to Your News Wire “The inspector general also discovered that the FBI ‘failed to preserve’ five months worth of Strzok-Page texts for a crucial period in the Russia investigation — from Dec. 14, 2016 to May 17, 2017. Considering the explosive information revealed by Gowdy and Ratcliffe regarding one of the text messages, it has become clear the FBI is attempting to cover its tracks.

Gowdy, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, vowed to investigate the text messages further.

‘I’m going to want to know what secret society are you talking about because you are supposed to be investigating objectively the person who just won the electoral college. I‘m going to want to know,’ he said on Fox.

In a tweet on Monday, Ratcliffe said that his review of the Strzok-Page texts ‘revealed manifest bias among top FBI officials’ against Trump.”

The DNC pushed for this investigation into Russian collusion, and it was the worst possible move they could have made. From the perspective of the mainstream media or any of the powers that be in Congress, they could have carried on and hinted and pushed the narrative without the investigation, but they didn’t. They were just so sure that he was guilty, so sure that he had to play the same dirty, colluded gamed that they were playing, that they had to have transparency. Well, they got their transparency, and when they did, we all got to see the dirty underbelly of how the liberals fight their political battles.

HILLARY And OBAMA Go Into HIDING After SHOCKING TOPICS Of MEMO Released! HOLY CRAP THIS IS HUGE!!

THIS IS BLOWING UP!!

Published

on

In what is one of the most terrifying, but not surprising, interviews ever to come out of the political arena. Republican Representative Paul Gosar from the great state of Arizona is now suggesting that the Obama administration had indeed weaponized the executive branch in pursuit of partisan political purposes.

Congressman Gosar came to this conclusion after reading a classified four-page memo which was composed by Republican Congressman Devin Nunes from California. Nunez, who chairs the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, claimed that in the memo Gosar described serious abuse of executive power as a habit across the Obama administration, the Justice Department, the CIA and the FBI. The memo is yet to be released to the public.

Gosar linked the following Obama-era operations and events as prime examples of a pattern of the highly partisan weaponization of the executive branch by Obama and his lackeys. The Fast and Furious gun-running operation, the handling response and coverup of the September 11, 2012, Islamic terrorist attack on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi where 4 lives were lost including that of our ambassador to Libya, the IRS’s targeting of dissident charities and non-profits such as the Tea Party, and the surveillance of persons connected to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Donald Trump himself.

Partial Transcripts Below:

MANSOUR: I want to pivot really quickly to this infamous #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag about the memo that the House Intelligence Committee Chairman wrote about, explaining what was going on with the FISA warrants that were issued by the Obama administration. Can you tell us – I know that you’ve read the memo, it hasn’t, obviously, been released to the public – what can you tell us about how this memo came about and what’s in it?

GOSAR: Well, this memo is a summary of emails and traffic that has been picked up by the intelligence and judiciary systems. Some of it is exactly what you may have seen that has been exposed to the sunlight already. Other things may not. But what it basically does is, that, if you don’t think that Fast and Furious, if you don’t think that Benghazi, for the lack of accountability, if you don’t think the IRS, and if you don’t think the unmasking has something to do with the weaponization of our Department of Justice and our intelligence services, think again.

MANSOUR: Wow. Okay. What is the likelihood that this memo with be released by Congressman Nunes?

GOSAR: In our conference, there is a heated debate about when, not if, and we want it out sooner than later. The American people need to see this. There are other things associated with it because this is just the tip of the iceberg. It names names, and those names, they should be owed their day in country, but if it is what’s presented, there are some heads that need to go to jail and not come out for quite some time.

Gosar reiterated his description of the aforementioned pattern of partisan political weaponization of the executive branch when asked about former U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power’s requests for “unmasking” American citizens’ identities captured via FISA surveillance operations, among whom were “Trump associates.”

And He Added:

POLLAK: Let me ask you this: there were some reports over the last year, and we actually were part of reporting this, that there were a number of individuals in the Obama administration who had requested the unmasking of the identities of Americans who were swept up in foreign wiretaps. And Samantha Power, the former ambassador to the United Nations, who doesn’t really have a national security function, had conducted a large number of these unmasking requests. Are we going to learn more about that? Are we going to see into the operation of the outgoing administration and why they did what they did?

GOSAR: Joel, I’m going to be very careful. I’m not an attorney, but if you don’t think that Fast and Furious, if you don’t think that Benghazi, for the lack of accountability, if you don’t think the IRS and the unmasking are tied together with the weaponization of our Department of Justice and political advocates, think again.

POLLAK: Wow. So this could relate back to those controversies, as well?

GOSAR: Here’s the thing. If you look at Fast and Furious, Joel, this was about one of the most precious and most instrumental aspects of individuals to hold a government accountable: having the Second Amendment. If you can take that, if you can lack the accountability that popped up with Benghazi, where you didn’t protect American citizens and those in harm’s way, if you can target your opposition with the IRS and then you can unmask them with anybody and then spread that information – not just unmask them, but spread that information to all other agencies and top brass – now, what you’ve got is the beginnings of a Banana Republic. That means that you have an autocratic demise to the democracy and to the republic and hold your political foes to their detriment.

Listen to the interview.

This is what happens when the American people get suckered into electing a nobody who came out of nowhere as their president. All because of his skin color, nothing else. Barack Hussein Obama is a man who has never even run a lemonade stand until the day he decided to run for office. And he never stood out in anything other than knowing how to read a speech well enough that the liberal population in our country could fall for him unconditionally. And now we learn he is what President Nixon could have only dreamed of being.

Please share if you want to see the Obama Administration investigated…

BREAKING NEWS!! Hell Yeah!!! TRUMP Might FIRE HIM!!! Do You AGREE!?

DRAIN THE SWAMP!! GO TRUMP!

Frank Lea

Published

on

President Donald Trump has a lot of thinking to do over the next few weeks. His motto of “drain the swamp” is about to hit closer to home as our very own US Attorney General Jeff Sessions finds himself in the midst of the FBI’s deleted text messages problem. Another problem to add to his list of worries is the possible secret society that lurks within the FBI and how it relates to Sessions.

Jeff Sessions was apparently on Trump’s team, appearing to stay strong amid the allegations that surrounded Trump with petty nonsense about Russia, collusion, and anything else the leftists created to throw shade on the Presidency. Trump drains the swamp and may have to cut off Attorney General Jeff Sessions if anything about the deleted text messages comes close to implicating him in a crime or guilty by association. In fact, Sessions may go down if anything comes up that determines a Clinton family member is guilty of a felony and he fails to act. That would place Sessions in a position that does not best support the White House, and he’d be the most prominent part of the swamp to be drained to date.

Multiple people had faith that Sessions would perform at the highest level, but now it seems like there’s a level of distrust between him and the general public. There are rumors abound that he’s connected to the Deep State theory. When it seemed like Sessions was aligned with the plan of Trump, it later became more apparent that Sessions may have his own agenda. If that’s true, then he probably didn’t expect the lid to be blown off the top this fast. One year into Trump’s presidency and he’s about to ax the Attorney General.

Does the public trust Jeff Sessions anymore?

The Gateway Pundit reported:

“CNN recently listed Jeff Sessions’ accomplishments as US Attorney General as follows –

In an October memo, he directed all US attorneys to implement new violent crime reduction strategies as part of the renewed DOJ program Project Safe Neighborhoods…

Sessions has spotlighted the gang’s [MS-13] brutality and cross-border connections…

The DOJ has sought in court — with mixed success — to salvage another of the President’s signature agenda items: the travel ban…

…the withdrawal of several DOJ directives that appeared to lessen protections for transgender people…

Amid calls for more investigations by the President and several Republican members of Congress, Sessions has initiated multiple reviews, in addition to a probe launched separately by the DOJ Inspector General…

But nothing to date has been accomplished to address either by this AG. Instead, a short time after he was sworn in, AG Sessions recused himself from anything Russia, brought in creepy Assistant AG Rod Rosenstein who then immediately brought in corrupt Robert Mueller to partake in an illegal, wide-open, unconstitutional witch hunt into President Trump!

Day after day, we the people, hear and read of more and more criminal activity within these institutions. Sessions ignores or announces investigations into these actions by deep state personnel. Criminals in the FBI continue to work and get paid. Americans continue to pay their bills. Mueller commits crimes, steals documents under attorney – client privledge and is allowed to continue.”

What should President Trump do? If the public screams for Sessions to go and they no longer trust him, then is it time for Trump to pull the cord? Should Trump flush Sessions out of the swamp and find a replacement who will be more aggressive in following Trump’s plan of making America great?

There are so many people calling for the lockup of Hillary and her crime syndicate, looking further into Obama and his potential criminal friends, and cutting the head off the Deep State concept that so effortlessly thrives in criminal activity without facing prosecution.

How far will Trump go to identify and expose the underlying criminal paths that many people have secretly followed? Will the swamp ever be fully drained or will it be replaced with other swamp creatures who are linked to that secret criminal society that supports their personal agenda over the likes of America?

If you were President Trump, then what would you do? How would you react to the deleted text message scandal? What about the wrath of Hillary? How would you deal with all of this and who would you prosecute first?
