Ya gotta watch what ya say in put when you are in the spotlight….

Hawaii IS part of the United States of America and counts like any other state and federal law issue…

(Oh and dissing Federal judges hasn’t been  helpful for Trump’s case’s either…)

Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke dismissively about the State of Hawaii while criticizing a Federal District Court ruling last month that blocked the Trump administration from carrying out its ban on travel from parts of the Muslim world.

“I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the president of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and constitutional power,” Mr. Sessions said this week in an interview on “The Mark Levin Show,” a conservative talk radio program.

Mr. Sessions’s description of Hawaii, where the federal judge who issued the order, Derrick K. Watson, has his chambers, drew a rebuke from both of the United States senators who represent the state. Annexed as a territory of the United States in the late 19th century, Hawaii became the 50th state in 1959.

“Hawaii was built on the strength of diversity & immigrant experiences — including my own,” Senator Mazie Hirono, Democrat of Hawaii, wrote on Twitter. “Jeff Sessions’ comments are ignorant & dangerous.”

The other senator from Hawaii, Brian Schatz, who is also a Democrat, expressed similar sentiments, writing on Twitter: “Mr. Attorney General: You voted for that judge. And that island is called Oahu. It’s my home. Have some respect.”…

A good ‘get’ for Cory Booker for a possible 2020 Presidential run….

Unless Sen Sessions REALLY screws up?

Even with his race, immigration, women and LGBT views in the pass , he is expected to be confirmed since the Republicans have 2 Senators over the 50 needed , with Pence , if need be to get a confirmation ….

But Democrats WILL get their pound of political flesh though….

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) will testify against his colleague Sen. Jeff Sessions during Wednesday’s confirmation hearing for President-Elect Donald Trump’s attorney general pick.

Booker said Monday night he does not “take the decision lightly” to speak against a fellow senator, but he believes Alabama Republican’s positions on myriad of issues are “deeply troubling.”

“Senator Sessions’ decades-long record is concerning in a number of ways,” said Booker. “The Attorney General is responsible for ensuring the fair administration of justice, and based on his record, I lack confidence that Senator Sessions can honor this duty.”

It appears Booker will be the first sitting senator to testify against a colleague during a confirmation hearing.

The New Jersey Democrat, who is black, explained the unprecedented step by pointing to Sessions’ opposition to a bipartisan criminal justice reform bill that Booker has been involved with since joining the Senate, as well as his views on reforming drug policy, his opposition to comprehensive immigration reform and his “failure to defend” minority groups, women and LGBT Americans….

Supporters are selling lies about Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III…Daily Kos…

 By Mark Sumner   @ Daily Kos….

Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III was nominated as a federal judge by Ronald Reagan in 1986, but was sent back to Alabama by a Republican-controlled Senate committee when witnesses testified that Jefferson Beauregard had been disrespectful and demeaning to blacks he worked with, referred to the ACLU and NAACP as “communist inspired,” and had said the only thing wrong with the KKK was that “they smoked pot.”

But now that Donald Trump is putting Sessions in charge of administering civil rights, the Weekly Standard is rushing to throw some genteel pshaws at that idea he has a single racist bone in his entirely righteous body.

… between the nature of the accusations and Sessions’s actual record of desegregating schools and taking on the Klan in Alabama, it strains credulity to believe that he is a racist.

The charge is that, since Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III was fighting to desegregate schools, he obviously wasn’t a racist, and the KKK remark was clearly “a joke” because Sessions was actually bust back in Alabama getting the death sentence for a Klan leader who killed a young African American.

The trouble with these two big assertions—which form not just the substance but the headline of the article—is that neither one is even remotely true. And neither are other claims being made to support “Jeff.”
