Sessions Dismisses Hawaii Judge in Travel Ban Case as ‘Sitting on an Island in the Pacific’

25 posts in this topic

What an evil unfit bigot Sessions is. This is how the rule of law gets perverted.   
 

Matthew Miller, a former Department of Justice spokesperson in the Obama administration, called the comment “an extraordinary attack on a federal judge's right to do his job by a sitting AG.”

“Completely inappropriate,” Miller tweeted.

“Someone please tell Sessions that Hawaii is a state,” Chelsea Clinton replied. “An American in Hawaii is as American as one from Alabama. Or Indiana.” The latter part of her comment appeared to be a reference to Trump's attacks on Judge Gonzalo Curiel, an Indiana-born judge who oversaw a pair of California lawsuits against Trump University.

The Justice Department followed up later Thursday with a statement defending Sessions' remark.

He is a racist pig.

 

It is astounding that an attorney general would call out a federal judge.

 

I blame the Senate. It had already dejected him for a judge ship because of his racism. So now they confirm him as attorney general.

I am getting a bit worried that Trumps and his minions are showing signs of dementia or something along those lines.

 

Trump; talking about what has been going on for decades, doesn't realize that there have been 3 NK presidents and doesn't mention the name(s) substituting 'Gentleman' puuuuhhhhhleessee. That is a brain fart filler if I ever heard one.

Yah maybe Obama, the Bush's and Clinton messed up and lied. But at least the did it with class and not sounded like a Jr. High dropout from the Bronx. Sorry Bronx abut the implication.

 

Sessions; 'that island' another brain fart..... dude it is Hawaii.

 

Spicer; 'Holocaust centers'? :rolleyes: Not once but several times. News bulletin to Spicer 'engage brain before starting mouth'. OOOooopppssss my bad...no brain. Well maybe....a parrots.

 

Tillerson; Doesn't say 'jack' for weeks. Then he opens his mouth and he sounds like something from a 1960's Sgt Rock (DC comics) comic book. Then he doesn't even know where a frk'n entire Carrier fleet is.

 

But in his defense. Most everyone else in the Admin didn't either. :o  I dunno about you ... I lose socks, I misplace sunglasses, I may for a minute or two forget where I parked my car BUT A FLEET? That is like me not knowing where my house is....only worse....my house isn't nuc equipped. :lol:

 

And these are supposedly the best of the best? :huh:

 

Show of hands...who of you thinks you could do a better job,at least at speaking than these three axx wipes? I got my hand up. :lol:

Sessions is 100% correct, Hawaii is quite insulated from the effects of illegal immigration. It's very easy for them to be all for it.

The Travel Ban has nothing to do with Illegal Immigration

Sessions is a Jim Crow era white cracker from Selma, Alabama. What else would you expect from someone that heralds from a backwards state?

Judge Watson was appointed during the Obama admin. Sessions voted yes for his confirmation. 

OK then, he's not a white cracker.

 

LOL.

 

Keep coming with the examples. Glad you're a supporter.

Yes, and playing for the other side.

 

Your point?

I don't have a point. I was simply responding on your comment about low expectations for people from Alabama. 

Hank Aaron was also from Alabama.

I don't know why you think I'm a supporter. I was pointing out the irony.

...and that proves what? That because 0.00001% (or whatever) of the population have gone on to do good things, that should change my - overall - opinion about Alabama?

 

Yes, I realize that there are good people, good places in every state. Alabama included.

Irony about what...that because you have a few examples of good people from Alabama, that somehow negates Sessions past, or the racist past of Alabama - as a whole?

No. Some people, myself included, would find it ironic that Sessions voted in favor of the appointment of the judge he is now complaining about.

OK, fair enough. I was not aware that he voted for him. Yes, I agree, very ironic.

 

The language used was what I was most surprised about.

Like repeatedly calling Ryan "Ron."  He acts Reaganesque in this regard and barely seems present in most photos. 

 

During his speech, the president referred to the Speaker of the House as “Ron,” mixing up his name with Sen. Ron Johnson, who was also in attendance.

While Trump was explaining Ryan’s absence, things got confusing.

“My thanks go to Speaker Ryan, who’s represented this city for nearly two decades in Congress, and do you know where he is?” Trump asked. “He’s with NATO. So he has a good excuse. So I said, ‘Ron, make sure these countries start paying their bills a little bit more, you know, they’re way, way behind, Ron.'”

And Democrats voted unanimously for Sessions to be a federal judge. Then they tried to block his appointment to AG.

That may be but I thought the Session judgeship committee was controlled by repubs but two of them voted no for a 8 to 10 no selection of Beauregard....

Ahhhhh lets agree to agree the low expectations are not about the state or the people. But rather the gooberment that is run by the inbred.

But thinking about it who put them in office?

Link?

 

"Sessions became only the second nominee to the federal judiciary in 48 years whose nomination was killed by the Senate Judiciary Committee.[24] He was quoted then as saying that the Senate on occasion had been insensitive to the rights and reputation of nominees.[35][36] A law clerk from the U.S. District Court in Mobile who had worked with Sessions later acknowledged the confirmation controversy, but stated that he observed Sessions as "a lawyer of the highest ethical and intellectual standards".[37]"

 

 

His Federal judge nomination never got out of the judiciary committee.
