If Trump installs a Muslim registry then everyone, irrespective of their actual religion or faith, should sign up. The would teach a Trump administration the stupidity of this scheme.
Like Donald Trump, Senator Sessions can do no wrong in the eyes of his constituents, and he probably will get confirmed by the Senate. If Trump has four years with a Republican Congress, he will easily undo 72 years of progress in the areas of civil rights, climate change and pollution of our air, water and soil. As difficult a task as it may seem now, we should be working on defeating enough Republican congressmen and/or senators so at least one or both houses of Congress get a Democratic majority. Giving him and the Republicans two years instead of four seems half as bad to me and the best chance for this country to move forward, not backward.
Can someone in America tell me what good decisions and nominations Mr Trump has done lately? I know he followers blame every negative report on the MSM being liberally biased but this guy seemed to have nominated essentially every bad apple he can find when it comes to the legal branch, the global security detail and environmental protection while scrapping the trade deal, make the Western allies more insecure, and hinting at reinstating torture as a military interrogation tool. Well done Mr President-elect – this must be a record! If you really want to destroy everything that works and poisoning international relations – this is the way to do it. I can’t shake off the notion that Russian interest must be involved somehow or the other – for the benefit for the U.S. is very hard to see while it certainly will elevate the influence of Russia and China.
Likely this history and the case described by Mr. Sugrue will help Sessions sail through his confirmation. Racism under the guise of small government and states’ rights–isn’t that a description of the modern Republican?
Didn’t Trump state that he loves the uneducated? They are so much easier to con.
