Alabama Republican US senator Jeff Sessions was confirmed as attorney general of the United States on Wednesday, February 8, president Trump’s 20th day in office. This delay is a disgrace. Sessions should have been confirmed on Trump’s first day or shortly thereafter.
This delay is more of the desperate stalling tactics of a Democrat party that has lost most of its national power. Senate Democrats are causing the most significant cabinet delays in the history of our nation, and it is going to cost them dearly in 2018 particularly when they run for re-election in states that Trump won.
The vote for Sessions was 52-47 which is another disgrace. Only one Democrat voted for Sessions, while in 2009 the radical attorney general nominee Eric Holder got 16 Republican votes.
Sessions should immediately go to work on a variety of issues including, but not limited to:
*investigating Hillary Clinton over her emails, and probing Bill and Hillary Clinton over the pay-for-play scandal at the Clinton Foundation.
*cracking down on cities that claim to be ‘sanctuary cities’. These cities are violating federal law. Their mayors should be arrested and replaced with “caretaker” mayors appointed by Sessions.
*repatriating hundreds of thousands of criminal illegals in US jails back to their home countries.
*implementing a sweeping investigation into voter fraud across America. This would put the Democrats out of power permanently since they win so many elections by fraud.
*investigate, arrest and prosecute people organizing and colluding with violent anti-Trump riots, arson, property damage and assaults.
*trace the funding for these riots to their sources, and arrest and prosecute those sources under conspiracy and sedition laws.
*investigate and prosecute people inside or recently inside the federal government who are leaking or who have leaked sensitive military and national security information, including members of the Obama administration.
*investigate Muslim individuals and groups that are conspiring to undermine US national security, including the Muslim Brotherhood. Look at this shocker from Front Page Mag about three Pakistani immigrants working on sensitive Congressional computers:
Last year, eight members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence issued a demand that their staffers be granted access to top secret classified information.
The signatories of the letter were Andre Carson, Luis Guiterez, Jim Himes, Terri Sewell, Jackie Speier, Mike Quigley, Eric Swalwell and Patrick Murphy. All the signatories were Democrats. Some had a history of attempting to undermine national security.
Two of them have been linked to an emerging security breach. The office of Andre Carson, the second Muslim in Congress, had employed Imran Awan. As did the offices of Jackie Speier and Debbie Wasserman Schultz; to whom the letter had been addressed.
Imran Awan and his two brothers, Jamal and Abid, are at the center of an investigation that deals with, among other things, allegations of illegal access. They have been barred from the House of Representatives network.
A member of Congress expressed concern that, “they may have stolen data from us.”
All three of the Pakistani brothers had been employed by Democrats. The offices that employed them included HPSCI minority members Speier, Carson and Joaquín Castro. Congressman Castro, who also sits on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, utilized the services of Jamal Moiz Awan. Speier and Carson’s offices utilized Imran Awan.
These Pakistanis not only have possibly leaked classified material to terrorists but they also have been involved in highly questionable personal financial dealings for many years. They should all be probed thoroughly along with the Democrats who employed them.
Attorney general Sessions also should:
*make marijuana sales and production illegal where it has been legalized in many states since 2012. Marijuana remains illegal under federal law. Sessions simply should enforce federal law.
*reinstate a database of 800 terrorist suspects inside the United States that the Obama administration deleted. Expand the database.
And much more. God bless attorney general Sessions. He could well end up being the most consequential AG in American history.
Now here is good news about the economy. Look at this from Breitbart.com:
Billionaire businessman Dan Gilbert announced that Microsoft is relocating its (suburban) Southfield (Michigan) office to downtown Detroit, and plans to open a tech development center there as well.
“We are really excited to move down into the center of Detroit and also the center of a thriving digital economy,” Microsoft Enterprise & Partner Group Vice President Phil Sorgen said.
Microsoft’s move to Detroit is helping to bolster the city’s growing status as a technology hub…. “Great to have Microsoft join 150 tech startups … in the burgeoning tech hub of downtown [Detroit],” Gilbert… tweeted.
This Detroit renaissance is occurring after more than 30 years of decline and hopelessness in the city. It is happening because the voters of Michigan in 2010 elected an honest, reform-minded conservative Republican governor named Rick Snyder who has made major changes for the state after decades in which corrupt Democrats and labor unions pillaged Michigan for every penny that they could steal.
Snyder was re-elected in 2014. He is a potential future US president. Now here is more about the economy:
Henry Morgenthau was Treasury secretary under Democrat US president Franklin D. Roosevelt. Morgenthau spoke in 1941 about the expenditure of huge sums of taxpayer cash since Roosevelt had taken office in 1933 in an attempt to end the depression of the 1930s. Morgenthau said:
“We are spending more money than we have ever spent before, and it does not work. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job. I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises. I say after eight years of this administration, we have just as much unemployment as when we started and an enormous debt, to boot.”
This means that the liberal approach to economics did not work just as Obama’s expenditure of $10 trillion of deficit taxpayer dollars over his two terms did nothing to fix our economic woes while doubling our national debt, which has harmed the economy significantly. This is precisely what Morgenthau observed 76 years ago.
Now look at this from Lifezette.com about the job creation figures for January 2017 that were released on February 3, 2017:
The January jobs report released Friday marks the end of Barack Obama’s presidency and an economic legacy tarnished by the steady decline of the nation’s manufacturing base.
America had 12.34 million manufacturing jobs in January, up by about 5,000 (from) the previous month but down by 1.75 percent from January 2009 …Obama fell well short of
This 2012 campaign promise to create 1 million manufacturing jobs during his second term. The actual figure was about a third of that goal, 362,000.
Notice that manufacturing jobs increased by 5,000 in January alone after dismal numbers during 2016, during December and during the entire Obama presidency.
This is significant. Donald Trump was not even officially inaugurated as president until January 20 yet we are seeing a spike not only in jobs created in January, 227,000 jobs up from 156,000 in December, but an actual increase in crucial manufacturing jobs.
This is happening because we now have a president in Donald Trump who cares about our economy and who is finally working to bring productive jobs back to the US. In the past we have had presidents who have stood by while millions of manufacturing jobs were destroyed or departed America for lower-wage nations.
The mere election of Trump brought a positive surge to the economy, and many more good things are coming, rest assured.
Trump is focusing on manufacturing jobs since they are the most important jobs. They are the jobs and industries that “create” wealth which happens when you take resources out of the ground, like iron ore, and convert them into a product like steel that is used in finished goods that have a monetary value like cars or washing machines or pipelines that move natural gas and oil. Otherwise these resources have no value whatsoever sitting in the ground.
Only 11 million net new jobs were added during the 8 years of the Obama presidency, and many of them were low-pay and part time. Manufacturing suffered significantly under Obama largely as a result of decades of hyper-regulation and never-ending “green” assaults on wealth-creating industries like mining and manufacturing.
We can expect Trump to create up to 25 million net new jobs that will be much better-quality jobs, including millions of new manufacturing jobs that pay well.
Obamacare regulations alone have harmed many millions of workers since these regs mandate that any job of 30 hours or more per week must give health insurance benefits. In response many employers cut workers back to 29 hours since insurance has become so grossly expensive.
This cutback represents a huge blow to the earnings of lower-tier workers, a reduction of $5,000 or even more in annual income for a single worker. This is typical of how “caring” Democrat programs end up harming the people that they are supposed to be helping.
Now we have a president in Trump who cares about real jobs that pay well. After all Trump personally has employed tens of thousands of people in his real estate empire over the last few decades.
Even before he was inaugurated we saw tens of thousands of American manufacturing jobs “saved” or promised in the weeks after Trump’s election, like at Carrier and Ford and through the proposed $50 billion investment by Japan’s SoftBank and other proposed investments by mega-firms like Apple and now Sharp and Intel. The list just keeps growing.
This all is happening because the liberal narrative is false, that America can never rebuild its economy or have good-paying manufacturing jobs again. Nikitas3.com has been calling this narrative false for decades and said over and over that we just need a leader like Trump.
With businessman Trump in the Oval Office radiating confidence and a positive attitude about the economy and talking sensibly, good jobs already are appearing and Americans will be able to go to back to work and earn good wages as the economy expands.
For proof, look at this from CNSNews.com to get some perspective about the economy in the month of January 2017:
The United States gained 5,000 jobs in manufacturing in January while losing 10,000 in government, according to numbers released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Over the past year—from January 2016 to January 2017—the United States added 162,000 government jobs, while losing 46,000 manufacturing jobs, according to BLS numbers.
… over the past year–from January 2016 to January 2017–the number of people employed in government in the United States climbed from 22,114,000 to 22,276,000—an increase of 162,000.
During the same January-to-January time period, the number of people employed in manufacturing dropped from 12,387,000 to 12,341,000—a decline of 46,000.
So it is clear that we must cut government jobs – which “consume” wealth – and add more manufacturing jobs, which “create” wealth.
If you want to know why America was prosperous in the 1950s and 1960s look at this from CNSNews.com reporting in Autumn 2016:
Government employment grew from 22,216,000 in September to 22,235,000 in October, according to BLS, while manufacturing jobs dropped from 12,267,000 to 12,258,000.
The 22,235,000 employed by government in the United States now outnumber the 12,258,000 employed in manufacturing by 9,977,000.
Over the past year—from October 2015 to October 2016—manufacturing employment fell by 53,000, declining from 12,311,000 to 12,258,000. During the same period, government employment climbed 208,000, rising from 22,027,000 to 22,235,000.
… Manufacturing employment peaked in June 1979 at 19,553,000. Since then, manufacturing employment has declined by 7,295,000—or 37.3 percent—to its current level of 12,258,000.
In June 1979, when manufacturing employment hit its peak, government employment was 16,045,000 (i.e., 3.5 million fewer in government than in manufacturing). Since then, government employment has increased by 6,190,000—or 38.6 percent—to its current level of 22,235,000 (almost twice as many in government as manufacturing).
In short, private employment shrinks in increasingly disproportionate numbers as government employment grows. Thus cutting the government workforce significantly from federal to state to county to local is absolutely necessary for the tens of millions of Americans who need good jobs.
