Attorney General Jeff Sessions showed his flair for leadership as a youth. He was an Eagle Scout, a leader on the field in football and in high school life as President of his senior class. He attended college in his home state, first receiving his undergraduate degree from Huntingdon College in Montgomery before matriculating at the University of Alabama Law School where he received his law degree.
A tireless advocate for a government of laws not men, Sessions is a seasoned lawyer and practitioner of Constitutional law, having served as a United States Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama and later as Alabama Attorney General. Contrary to what the Left would have us believe, Sessions had a stellar record of enforcing civil rights law in his duties and was endorsed by many leaders of the black church community in his nomination for the federal Attorney General spot. From 1996 until late last year, he served as a United States Senator from Alabama, championing national sovereignty and the rule of law. He has been a strong advocate for immigration by legal means only, vigorously opposing the open borders policy of the previous administration.
Right out of the starting blocks, General Sessions has shown his no nonsense approach to managing the Department of Justice. His early focus has been on the nation's horrific illegal immigration problem and ridding the nation of the MS-13 gang members who were ushered into the country, a group which has shown to be ruthless wherever they go. He has also warned states that support the sanctuary city nonsense that there will be consequences for their continued breaking of the law. Additionally, Sessions has closely aligned his department with his counterpart in Homeland Security, Secretary John Kelly, to mount a strong force to clean up the mess that they inherited on the border and in cities and towns all across the fruited plain. The two toured the Southern border this past week and showed a strong team willing to go the extra mile to insure that America remains America, not a third world nation bankrupted by programs that do nothing for citizens.
And that brings us to Secretary Kelly, a retired Marine Corps General and highly regarded leader who speaks clearly, forcefully and decisively. During this past week Secretary Kelly made it clear how he would run the Department of Homeland Security; it will be an agency that insures that laws of the nation with regard to his duties are carried out clearly and effectively. And he has even fired a shot across the bow at Congress, stating that if they don't like what he is doing, they should change the laws. And that's exactly the point of men like both Kelly and Sessions, their duties are to follow the law, not create or ignore them, and that's why I see them as the early superstars in the Trump Administration. It's refreshing after so many years of chaos to have these two important departments conducting the mission which they swore to uphold: the lawful administration of government.
Now I get it that my liberal friends don't like it; they've been allowed to run amok for the last eight years and even in years previous, including Republican administrations as many in government have looked the other way. But leadership has changed and America is trying to get back to governing, not ruling by tyranny. And if the best the Democrats can do is appoint a radical Democratic National Committee chair who has said that Republicans aren't worth a sh%#, a comment which they have turned into a DNC -supported T-shirt, then their star in politics will continue to burn out. This is America, a nation created under God and operated under the law; all others need not apply.
