Jeff Sessions endorses Trump

The general impression is that this endorsement should finish off Ted Cruz once and for all:
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) endorsed Donald Trump at a campaign rally in Huntsville Sunday evening. Sessions promised a "Gang of Eight" type of immigration reform bill would not will be passed in a Donald Trump presidency.

"There is an opportunity this year, Tuesday, and we have the opportunity -- we have an opportunity Tuesday. It may be the last opportunity we have for the people's voice to be heard. You have asked for 30 years, and politicians have promised for 30 years to fix illegal immigration," Sessions said.

"The American people have known for years these trade agreements have not been working for them," Sessions stumped. "We now have and will soon have a vote on the Transpacific Partnership TPP), Obamatrade, and it will damage America. It will create a commission that undermines our sovereignty, and it should not pass. Donald Trump when he gets elected president will see it does not pass."

Sessions said Trump is not perfect, but nobody is and endorsed the candidate.

"This movement, he doesn't take money from political groups and lobbyists. He is committed to leading this country in an effective way. You know, nobody is perfect. We can't have everything, can we, Mr. Trump? But I can tell you one thing, I think at this time in my opinion, my best judgment, at this time in America's history, we need to make America great again!" Sessions said, repeating Trump's campaign slogan.

"I am pleased to endorse Donald Trump for the presidency of the United States," Sessions endorsed.
Given that Sessions is supposed to have written Trump's immigration plan, this is hardly a surprise. But combined with Christie's endorsement and Maine Governor LePage's endorsement, it means that the preference cascade among officeholders has started and it's only going to increase.

All of the conservatives nattering and bitching about how Trump isn't a conservative are behind the times and missing the point. It doesn't matter what your national policies are if you don't have a nation. First things first. Sen. Sessions recognizes that.

Does that mean Trump can be trusted to build a wall, to deport all the illegal immigrants, and severely reduce the flow of immigration? No. But a) he's the only candidate who might, and b) he's the Republican nominee.

Deal with it and decide if you prefer President Trump or President Hillary. Because those are now your two choices.

Sessions is too old to be VP, and he's well suited to his current position.

But this endorsement is big pickup right before Super Tuesday.

The only possible reason not to want Sessions as VP is if he's more valuable in the Senate. What an excellent day for Trump.

I found this endorsement to be unsurprising, quite opposite to that of Christie. Sessions has been team Trump from the start, so this is just making something that was assumed official.

Given that, I'm not sure how it really effects the race. Surely this was 'priced in'?

Blogger Billy February 28, 2016 7:10 PM  

From Sessions Wikipedia page; "At Sessions' confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, four Department of Justice lawyers who had worked with Sessions testified that he had made several racist statements. One of those lawyers, J. Gerald Hebert, testified that Sessions had referred to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) as "un-American" and "Communist-inspired" because they "forced civil rights down the throats of people."[8]

Thomas Figures, a black Assistant U.S. Attorney, testified that Sessions said he thought the Klan was "OK until I found out they smoked pot." Sessions later said that the comment was not serious, but apologized for it.

If nothing else this race will be great entertainment. Here's what USA Today said on June 17, 2015 when Trump announced he was running: "That said, it's hard to find a political analyst who sees Trump as a credible contender for the Republican nomination.

Nathan Gonzales, editor of nonpartisan Rothenberg & Gonzales Political Report, called him an unwelcome distraction for the GOP.

"It's a big headache for the Republican Party," he said. "Donald Trump is not going to be the Republican nominee for president. "Any time that he consumes on the debate stage and in the media is time he's taking away from a legitimate contender.""


The amusement watching the MSM and all the pundits eating their words will be never-ending.

Trump cannot be trusted, but the rest of the field are even less trustworthy. Trump is at least likely to respond to a majority of his supporters.

Yet a wall per se is unnecessary, assuming a 1-2-3-4. One path to citizenship which does NOT start in this country. The 2nd amendment, and the III percenters and a 4% tax (with ID) on transfers to Mexico.

Remember a wall both keeps people in and out.

This will be interesting, and potentially quite ugly. We've got "conservatives" saying they won't support Trump - as an arch-conservative myself, I'll have to hold my nose...but I had to do that for Romney, McCain, and Dole.

My read is that Trump is close to John Kennedy. Center-right by modern standards, but he's not fanatic about it. What he's got going is patriotism. We haven't seen that out of the Democrats for thirty years.

VP? Trump needs someone to add conservative heft to the ticket, regional diversity, and foreign/national security credentials. I can see several options. Were I picking, my short list would be Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, and Robert Gates.

And I'd have two campaign plans. One against Clinton, the other against Biden. I'm convinced the Democrats will pull a switch as soon as Sanders is out of the way.

Blogger John Morris February 28, 2016 8:16 PM  

And be sure to hammer everybody who objects to Trump with this reality:

The GOPe was the last one free to act. As soon as it was clear Rubio wasn't even going to be able to carry his home state they could have realized they weren't winning this cycle but could pick the winner from the other two. Reflash Rubiobot with new software to make him a Cruz surrogate and have the donors throw money at the problem. Rubio voters, being loyal footsoldiers of the party would have obeyed. All the math says it would have worked but after Trumpsday it isn't nearly as certain.

Cruz dropping would only help Trump as many of his voters wouldn't have obeyed, being too anti-amnesty and anti-establishment.

So be sure to lay all that out and make them own it. That their people decided this was what they wanted. They decided to roll the dice on a desperate gambit to make sure Trumps stays under 50% in 43 states and is ineligible to have his name placed into nomination. But Cruz will probably run out of money and drop out soon enough that won't be a real risk; meaning they were just being stupid.

Watch heads explode. Cackle your best evil laugh and repeat on next victim.

Blogger Dave February 28, 2016 8:18 PM  

Trump cannot be trusted, but the rest of the field are even less trustworthy.

What we need from Trump is for him to promise to nominate Ted Cruz to the Supreme Court as Scalia's replacement. If he would do that, I think Trump would get an incredible surge of support from conservatives. All of the Trump-bashing conservatives I know have said that they would have to support Trump if he is willing to put Cruz up there and fight for him. Why? Cruz will help gut Roe v. Wade. He'll uphold Heller. He'll burn down Obamacare if given the chance. He will also almost invariably support Trump on constitutional questions about immigration enforcement.

Trump putting Cruz on the Supreme Court would be not only the most radically anti-establishment thing he could do, but also the surest way to help ensure that the SCOTUS would side with him on most issues.

I have had some fairly serious doubts about that point. This is from something I wrote back in December.

The [initial injury] incidence is only about 3 per 1,000,000 adults. The transverse sinus is less commonly affected than the main sagittal venous sinus. The cause of transverse sinus clots is not well understood although trauma and dehydration (*I.E. Booze*) have been described as risk factors. Mrs. Clinton suffered from both.

Post Concussion Syndrome in a woman in her late sixties is easily grounds for enforced retirement. True, both she and the media are saying she has completely and miraculously recovered from her concussion.

They were lying.

You don't recover from that at her age. You just don't.

You can't have that kind of an injury without impairment of higher cognitive function. She has lost one standard deviation of her IQ. On top of that will be memory dysfunction as well.

I was at this rally. Yuuuuuge crowd, and a seriously huge line to get in. We, like most of the crowd, had to walk over a mile just to get in. (The crowd was so big that you had to park really far away.) Some observations:

The Crowd's Age: The age of the crowd was all over the place. We stood in line near a bunch of half-drunken frat-boys. We saw lots of families, lots of groups in their twenties, lots of older people.

The Crowd's Size: The crowd was big, estimated at 32,000. There were also an estimated 3,000 people outside the stadium who couldn't get in due to fire codes (even though the event was outside, go figure.)

Protesters: The program was interrupted about three times by protesters. On the way in, too, there were maybe 30 people holding signs, protesting. The signs said the usual stuff, mostly that Donald Trump is a racist.

The crowd went nuts for Jeff Sessions. At the rally, he said that he's never endorsed anyone for president before.

What netted the biggest cheers? Building the wall, no contest.

There is certainly something weird going on there between them.

I would have sworn up and down on a stack of fifteen bibles and bet serious money on top of it that Biden was going to run.

He was doing all of the prep work needed. In front of and behind the scenes. And then all of sudden he pulls the cord with Obama standing beside him when he did it.

There was no need for Obama to be standing there at all for that kind of thing. Clearly an "I approve this message," message was being sent by Obama but damned if I can figure out why?

Although it was obvious to whom it was being sent.

Trump would not consider Cruz on the SCOTUS for the first term. Maybe the second term if he was reelected and it will come from left field as a total shock.

What we need from Trump is for him to promise to nominate Ted Cruz to the Supreme Court as Scalia's replacement.

I see this keep popping up, and it's not going to happen. Democrats will filibuster, and McConnell won't spend a penny of political capital to push through the nomination.
Cruz will never be on SCOTUS under normal circumstances. It's just a bait and switch bullshit promise to make Cruz supporters hope there's a bright side to capitulation.

Yes. Concussion. Not stroke. NOT stroke! NOT STROKE!

Her brain is physically weak, and once Big Beautiful Wall has the nom in the bag, he will start pounding her nonstop, with brief breaks to pound the Bernshevik. She won't last.

Well, she has the entire media machine, plus the donor class of both parties to prop her up. The D's re-elected a dead man in 1944, and let Mrs. Woodrow Wilson be President for quite a while. So there's a precedent.

I don't even know if it would be legal according to their own rules for the Dhimmicrats to crown Handsy. But I don't think it matters. I trust them to change their rules on the fly to fit their desires.

Trump the time to withdraw the nomination.

The constitution does state the new session starts on Jan 3rd, but what if the GOP just never gavel out the last session and take to reading the wikipedia into the congressional record starting at 11:59pm on Jan 2.

I think grip angle and length of pull are the most important.

Close your eyes bring the pistol up, open them, are you looking down the sights? Change grip angle and back strap until it does.

Once yes, pull the trigger, does the barrel defect left or right? If it does change trigger length until it doesn't.
