AG Jeff Sessions-The Demise of the DOJ and Its FBI

Thomas Jefferson:  “The most sacred of the duties of government [is] to do equal and impartial justice to all its citizens.”

I used to think that Jeff Sessions had such a sophomoric moral code that he felt he had to recuse himself so as not to have a conflict of interest in the so-called Russian-Probe! 

Now, I think I was the one with a sophomoric view of Jeff Sessions!

I now think that Jeff Sessions is part of, or has bought into the mystique of the DOJ as being its own shadow government.  I think that he is protecting the DOJ/FBI over the interest of we the people, just as Robert Mueller did, James Comey did, and the rest of the absolutely politically corrupt DOJ and FBI officials have.  Jeff Sessions is a disgrace as an Attorney General, a traitor to President Trump who hired him, and will go down in history as the AG who presided over the demise of the DOJ and the FBI.

The Depth of the Stench

Unless you live in a cave without electricity, and you don’t believe that CNN is the gospel of truth, you wonder how the DOJ and its FBI could possibly have exonerated Hillary Clinton and given immunity to all of the key Clinton staff who could have been witnesses against Clinton BEFORE THEY TESTIFIED AGAINST CLINTON.  Further, that Comey and the entire Clinton investigative group prejudged the outcome and buried all damaging evidence against Clinton.  Concurrent with the Clinton probe, the same Clinton probe DOJ and FBI agents started up a national security investigation of the Trump Campaign, based on false documents paid for by the FBI and the Clinton Campaign using an ex-British intelligence officer using information obtained from Russian agents.  

But, this is just the tip of the iceberg, that we know of.  The stench permeates the management of the NSA, DNI, DIA, the CIA, the State Department and prior Democrat Administrations.  These agencies and persons passed information to the DOJ/FBI to be used to squelch the Clinton probe while feeding or creating derogatory information against the Trump Campaign.  When it became clear that Trump would win the Presidential Election and after he was inaugurated, these agencies went into full tilt to bring down the Trump Presidency, with Jeff Sessions watching this seditious action unfolding before his eyes and not lifting a finger to address this miscarriage of justice.

We could go back to the days when these agencies, and specifically Clinton and Obama, passed on turning over 25% of the US uranium to RUSSIA, some of which has been exported in violation of the transfer agreement…  While handing over strategic materials to who the LEFT has determined to be our mortal enemy is nuts and contrary to US best interests, outright sedition against a lawfully elected President is more than scary!  And by government agencies that actually are subservient to and report to that same duly elected President!

The Creation of the DOJ and the FBI

The office of the Attorney General was first established by Congress (Not the Constitution) in 1789, and only authorized a one person part-time office.  His duties were supposed to be to prosecute and conduct all suits on behalf of the country before the Supreme Court.  After the Civil War, the volume of suits required a change as the AG was spending an exorbitant amount on contract attorneys.  In 1870, Congress passed the Act to Establish the Department of Justice as an executive department (subservient to the President).

In 1908, the nation had grown and spread out from coast to coast without any comprehensive penal code nor federal investigative force.  The Attorney General Bonaparte actually created what is today’s FBI by memorandum in 1908 (originally Bureau of Investigation).  At the time, the AG had to use the Secret Service to investigate on his behalf as he did not have his own investigative staff.  The real irony in the creation of the nation’s arguably most powerful investigative executive agency is that it was not created by Congress.  Congress did approve appropriations and tweaked some of its powers but in fact it is an investigative body created by the Attorney General.  Today, the DOJ has a permanent workforce of 109,000 people (only God knows how many contractors they employ.  As of 2008, the FBI employed approximately 33,500 people.

Today, the DOJ and its FBI have grown exponentially and have for a long time seemingly acted autonomously and shown complete disdain for Congressional oversight and even acted like they were not subservient to the President which is absolutely untrue!  Both agencies thumb their noses at legitimate Congressional inquires and redact information that persons with tops security clearances are not allowed to read.

FISA Armed the DOJ/FBI With the Mother Of All Investigative Power

See the source image

Before discussing Sessions specifically, we have to acknowledge that after 9-11 and the adoption of the Patriot Act, the DOJ and the FBI and other intel agencies now have seemingly unlimited access to technology to spy on American Citizens.  The agencies hide behind the FISA act and the FISA courts to obscure and bury their covert surveillance against US persons.  What we saw in the 2016 Presidential election was that the DOJ/FBI had no reservation in using fictitious documentation to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on a member of a Trump advisory board and by extension, anyone in the Trump Campaign.  This power has been abused in this past election cycle and has been allowed to go on without consequence.  January 20th, 2017, enter Jeff Sessions…

Jeff Sessions Betrayed the American People, And his “Friend”, President Trump!

Below is an org chart for the Sessions Department of Justice.  When looking at this chart, keep two things in mind.  One, Sessions has recused himself from the most important investigations in history, the “Russian Collusion with the Trump Campaign”.  So, while the entire nation, Congress and our President is consumed with this investigation, AG Sessions, sits on a log doing what exactly?  Two, look at which departments report to Rod Rosenstein, Sessions #2.  THEY ALL DO! 

So what is Sessions doing?  More importantly, What is Sessions NOT doing!  

  • Sessions is not directing Rosenstein on any matter the Mueller is investigating that is NOT related to the Trump Campaign.
  • Sessions is NOT forcing Rosenstein to turn over documents to Congress in a timely manner without politically motivated redactions…
  • Sessions is allowing Rosenstein to function as the actual AG without oversight.
  • Sessions is not focusing on the Left’s attacks on the Right as a civil rights issue.  
  • Sessions is not focusing on violence against our police as we have already exceeded their death toll versus 2017.
  • Sessions is not focusing on cleaning up the DOJ or the FBI in light of the total politicization of both agencies as evidenced in the Clinton and now the Trump probe.  

Sessions knows that the President is not in a political position to fire him and Rosenstein.  If the man had any scruples, he would fire Rosenstein then resign.  If the President fires either one or both, he faces a backlash in the Senate to confirm their replacements.  In the meantime, the American Public is fed up with the DOJ and FBI acting like they are not accountable to anyone, which they haven’t been!

There is a drastic need to reorganize both the DOJ and the FBI, NOW.  But, I’ll save that for another article…

Arizona’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio and The Great “Uniter” President Obama

If it is the Law, He will Enforce It!

Obama once again hides behind his shill in the Justice Department Eric Holder in going after Sheriff Joe in Arizona.  Sheriff Joe is no stranger to Justice Department investigations of alleged civil rights violations.   Now they are after even more documents in the “Hope” that they can find something to use against him.  This is clearly an abuse of power.

This is the same tactic Obama’s Nurse Ratchet, Nancy Pelosi, resorts to every time someone speaks or acts out against the Left.  The last attack being her support for investigating the opponents to the Mosque at Ground Zero. 

At stake in Arizona’s Maricopa County is the threat by Obama to withhold some or all of the County’s $113M Federal reimbursements.  This is another example of Obama’s now famous divide and conquer strategy.  The rest of the county departments are pressuring Arpaio to submit the excessive documents and cave into Obama. 

This is also at a time when the sheriff has a $1,000,000 contract out on him from the Drug Cartel.  Seems like if the drug cartel wants you dead, the Justice Department, (note the word justice), might want to reconsider its opinion of you as a criminal?

The Justice Department uses these tactics as a political tool which is utterly disgusting.  Not one single claim against the sheriff has led to an indictment and the LEFT has been after him for years.  The ACLU, AKA Obama’s other Justice Department, probably has a division devoted to the sheriff and Arizona in general.  Sheriff Joe is probably responsible for more deportations and drug arrests than any other Sheriff in the country and has never been successfully prosecuted for civil rights violations since taking office in 1992.  Joe also served for over 24 years in the DEA so is no stranger to drug enforcement practices at a FEDERAL level.  These investigations can literally bankrupt individuals and will cause a continued serious drain on Arizona’s already strapped economy. 

            From the Politico on 8/5/2010, the scope of the investigation included:   “The Justice Department has been investigating Arpaio’s office since March 2009 for alleged discrimination, unconstitutional searches and seizures, and having an English-only policy in his jails that   discriminates against people with limited English skills.”

Gee, I did not know it was required for a sheriff to provide bi-lingual education for inmates.  His jail may be one of the few institutions of higher learning that teaches English.  In fact, Joe instituted several rehabilitative programs like “Hard Knocks High,” an accredited high school which is the only one operating under a Sheriff in an American jail, and ALPHA, an anti-substance-abuse program to reduce recidivism.  He instituted a 3,000 member posse to assist in search and rescue efforts as well as special operations like finding deadbeat parents, reducing prostitution, mall patrols during holidays, and assisting in the investigation of animal cruelty complaints. 

He has a simple set of philosophies which include:

If what you are doing is against the law, he will arrest you.  

If it is a law, he will enforce it. 

If you don’t like the enforcement of a law, change or repeal the law.
