Re: TRUMP ROCKS! RUSSIA TALKS! HILLARY WALKS! BUT, NO "SESSIONS" FOR SEN. SESSION

Don't worry, I have no intentions of beating you up. So, it's okay for me to be riled. I'll just disagree with you vehemently online. I read that you get your impressions about the South from Hollywood movies. I would suggest that maybe that's not the best route to go when appraising the culture of any group of people you have not visited yourself. Forrest Gump and My Cousin Vinny are not exactly nonfiction.

Race relations are in a bad way, and the current Attorney General is not a white dude from the South, so your argument is invalid.
Well, I suppose being "opposed vehemently" is better than bein roughed up by a suthun bell... But, Ronny Van Zandt didn"t exactly like the government, and he probably wouldn't have supported Mr. Sessions, cause,

"Cause there's things goin' on, tha-chu-don't know!" "too many lives been spent across the ocean, LORD have Mercy, too much money been spent upon the MOON! Waell, until they make it right, I hope they never sleep at night-- they better MAKE sum changes and do it SOON!"

"Cause down in Alabama, you can RUN, but, you shore cain't hide!"
Sen. Sessions can not hide from his past policies and the failed policies of those he supports.

Well, Sessions got appointed today, and the protestors are already out in force, the AG is now a white dude from the south-- "Pop, goes the weasel!" They can't say we didn't warn them. But, Sessions had an obligation not to accept the nomination in the interest of national peace and security, so the blood of America's law enforcement is on his hands, if things get radical. President Trump might just be forced to fire him before he even takes office.

"Forrest...why did this happen?...I waount to go home..."

Your apocalyptic vision of blood running in the streets is a bit extreme. Who knew one senator from Alabama had that much influence over a whole segment of the population, simply by virtue of being from Alabama? From your words, one would think being from Alabama would be akin to being Godzilla. It's just ridiculous. Would you be prognosticating such a gloomy picture if the Attorney General were from, say, Mississippi? How about Georgia? Tennessee? the Carolinas? Which states are acceptable for providing politicians to federal office, and which are exempt?

Are you sure you aren't from the Reconstruction era?

To the poster who said I was mocking Alabama, the song quotes are meant to compliment Alabama through the band Lynyrd Skynyrd. To Galatea: Apocalyptic? That was only a figure of speech, meaning that if Sen. Sessions accepts the nomination or is approved (btw, I mistakenly thought that had happened due to media isolation) his being from the South, especially Alabama, even though things have changed of course, since the WAllace years, because of the social history there, his presence, and his past/present policies will create further danger to law enforcement due to the racial unrest associated with the accidental shootings by police of minorities. BUt, his confirmation hearings are not going well. Sen. Cory Booker from New Jersey, where my father's family grew up, made an unprecedented opposition to Sen. Session's nomination saying that due to his record, he could not be trusted to "BRING JUSTICE TO THE JUSTICE SYSTEM," something that has national, bipartisan support. Because that news flash was running across the screen as I sat down at McDonald's, after I had prayed that SEssions would not be confirmed, I see that as a confirmation from God that he will not be. Another confirmation that Sessions is not favored, is that many Christians believe these are the last days, and so major, radical justice reform that will take America out of the dark ages and into the New Millenium is in keeping with and confirmed by the words of Jesus in Nazareth when he said, "I have come to announce freedom to all who are imprisoned upon the earth." (emotional/spiritual unseen prisons within, as well as freedom for those who have been unjustly imprisoned through the obsolete, archaic, arbitrary, and corrupt justice systems of the world of "justice to the highest, sneakiest, corrupt bidder," that are passing away, as the Light of the New Millenium dawns, and the true justice of the Reign of Christ is established, and the meek inherit the earth.

But, as a parting note of consolation for Mr. Sessions as he is excused, his opposition to abortion is something I support.

I don't even know where to begin. With your media consumption, did you notice that there were African Americans who testified on behalf of Sessions, people who said they knew him to be an honorable man and not a racist?
He is going to be the next Attorney General. No matter how hard Democrats may try to persuade some Republicans to vote against confirming him, Sessions is too well respected by members of the Senate to lose votes.

As much as I like your passionate defense of your state, (and your cute pic) I believe that the signs I'm seeing from God indicate that he will NOT be confirmed. The math is against him: polite racism + misguided justice = denial of confirmation. Just because you say he will be confirmed can not make it happen, if it is not God's will. Trump does not need to fire him: America will.

Here are some African Black-Americans who testified against Mr. Sessions:

Senator John Lewis of Georgia said in this quote from (npr.org; "[FONT=&quot]In Day 2, Jeff Sessions' Attorney General Hearings Turn To Civil Rights" Jan. 11, 2017):[/FONT]"Lewis cautioned against Sessions' polite demeanor.
"It doesn't matter how Sen. Sessions may smile, how friendly he may be, how he may speak to you," he said. "We need someone who's going to stand up, speak up and speak out for the people that need help." (Senator John Lewis of Georgia)
Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey also spoke out passionately against Sen. Session's confirmation saying: (Also from the same npr.org story)
"His record indicates that we cannot count on him to support state and national efforts toward bringing justice to the justice system," Sen. Cory Booker said. Booker, the first sitting senator to testify against a fellow senator during a confirmation hearing, said Sessions' record shows he won't protect people of color, women, LGBT communities, immigrants or voting rights.
Booker ended his speech with a call to rally against injustice:
"The arc of the moral universe does not just naturally curve toward justice. We must bend it." (Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey)

Re: TRUMP ROCKS! RUSSIA TALKS! HILLARY WALKS! BUT, NO "SESSIONS" FOR SEN. SESSION

So... God told you Sessions will not be confirmed?
Did I say that anywhere in my post? "Signs, signs, everywhere, signs..." I just meant that in discerning signs in the hearings, news, and in my own life, I'm getting a feeling that he is not going to be confirmed, and that this is endorsed by God. Did I say I heard, "I WANT YOU TO BUILD AN ARK." or something like that? NO. If people are committed Christians, God does speak to us in many ways-- I think the closer people are to knowing the LORD, and I have a long way to go, the more evident it becomes, until some people are ready to witness God's power more directly. Do you think He would reveal His power directly, or speak directly to nin-com-poops who were not ready to be committed, faithful, stable stewards of their lives and of divine grace? The Lord is not careless with His power--or reveal it directly unless someone is ready for it; It's too dangerous. I might experience unusual coincidences, which is very common btw, such as running into someone that might be involved in a key decision in my life and maybe they might say something out of the blue, related to circumstances in my life. And, I have read about dramatic things like a child who was being spiritually attacked out of the blue, and an angel appeared to protect them by preventing them from falling down the stairs. The child asked the angel if he could carry him suspended in the air down the stairs, and the angel did so. But, God does not generally reveal his power to those who are not prepared to deal with it. It would be like having a child wire a 100 Amp power-supply to a house; Or to land a 747; or raise a man or woman of God. Maybe an electrician after 10,000 hours of experience so they don't go up in smoke--

So, no. God does not speak to me directly and give me orders for the day, but, I'd like to get to that point, and there are many mature Christians that live like that. One pastor said on TV that he was in a bank and needed a loan, and it wasn't looking good. He said that God told him to tell the loan officer to approve the loan, based on things that would change in several days. The loan officer approved the loan to his amazement. When he went to close the loan, which was for his church, the loan officer said that God had also told him to approve the loan. If these people told this to the wrong people, they could be labeled "schizophrenic," because, according to the world's understanding of psychology, only people with mental illnesses "hear voices" in their head.

I didn't think we were arguing, just discussing healthy dialogue. On the contrary, I don't support Sen. Sessions being confirmed because his confirmation would promote civil unrest simply because he is white and from the south, and because of some of his political positions, due to the already present civil unrest related to racial tensions in America. I believe it would help to ease that civil unrest if someone other than an Anglo-European American was to hold the position of "top cop" in America, and "top attorney," because of the serious problems with the justice system in America--which was confirmed very clearly by the Senator from New Jersey in crying out for "justice for the justice system."

I disagree. I don't believe he will be confirmed BECAUSE he is from the south. In another administration it might be a different situation, but, Trump's administration choices are not very representative of American society at the moment. And justice reform is one of my main passions in life--to bring God's mercy to a legalistic society. America is "One Nation Under God," not, "One Nation Under the Law." IT should be both according to the Bible: The sword of Christ is a two-edged sword of "justice and mercy." Justice should not be based on the highest racist bidder, or the most polite, sneakiest, slickest, unethical manipulators of legalistic revenge, or political agenda's, or oppression of minorities that money can buy.

Only the LORD can confirm people, not the president, not the senate, not Eloseus, not a Herald, not an angel, not a Saint; This is not an ordinary administration--surprises are the norm. I would not be surprised at all if Sen. Sessions was not confirmed, in fact, I'm counting on it-- believing in it, not because he is a bad person, but, because he is just not the right person for the job. If the senate were to confirm the Senator from Alabama, they would be confirming themselves as a racist senate because of the realities of racial tensions in America. Appointing an Anglo-European AG from a southern state would be a serious and grievous offense to Black Americans, and it would also be an act of "reckless endangerment" by the senate which would threaten peace in America and the safety of law enforcement. The Senate must act decisively to prevent this public insult and offense towards minorities, and extremely insensitive and extremely dangerous high-stakes gamble with public safety if the "top cop" of America, and the face of justice in America is someone who represents past public policy mistakes that have lead to many unnecessary deaths and suffering. Senators should keep in mind that this would also be a gamble with their re-election.

Re: TRUMP ROCKS! RUSSIA TALKS! HILLARY WALKS! BUT, NO "SESSIONS" FOR SEN. SESSION

This may be my last post on this since the senate hearings on the AG may take place this week. But, I wanted to add, that I believe it is no coincidence that the confirmation hearing is concurring with the Observance of Martin Luther King day in America. And with the heated dialog between Mr. Trump and Sen. Smith, it puts new pressure on the Senate to re-consider the confirmation of Sen. Sessions. This confirmation would only serve to worsen racial tensions, and the Senate should very seriously consider not proceeding with the confirmation. If the Senate were to confirm a controversial AG nominee the week after the observance of Martin Luther King day in America, it would further confirm the Senate as a racist Senate by virtue of default. Considering the state of racial tensions in America related to violence by law enforcement towards minorities and vice versa, it would be unethical for a senator who does not represent a balanced Cabinet to accept such a nomination that would be seen as an offense to minorities. Furthermore, because the confirmation hearings are coinciding with MLK day and the heated dialog between the President-elect and Black American leaders is also another sign of confirmation of the opinions expressed in this post by the OP.

Proverbs 31 says: "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those who are perishing. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice." (Advice of a mother to her son, a king) (Proverbs 31:8; NLT).

And, Isaiah 51:14-17: "Soon all you captives will be released! Imprisonment, starvation, and death will not be your fate! For I am the LORD your God, who stirs up the sea, causing its waves to roar. My name is the LORD Almighty. And I have put my words in your mouth and hidden you safely within my hand. I set all the stars in space and and established the earth. I am the one who says to Israel, "You are mine!'"

Isaiah speaks to king Hezekiah: "This is what the LORD, the God of your ancestor David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I will heal you, and three days from now you will get out of bed and go to the Temple of the LORD....I will do this to defend my honor and for the sake of my servant David." (2 Kings 20:5-7).

I believe these verses and recent events related to this post support the belief that Sen. Sessions will not be confirmed. It also shows that those who God favors, such as King Hezekiah, are helped by the LORD. When King Hezekiah prayed passionately and sincerely for God's help in defeating an invading army, the angel of the LORD slayed 185,000 enemy Assyrian troops that night.

Also, Paul wrote that, "the fervent prayer of righteous men and women of God is heard by God, and can effect a powerful outcome." (paraphrase). This is the value and power of genuine faith in the Bible--

Keep in mind that "Israel" has a broader meaning in modern times. It also refers to all who are members of the Old Covenant and the New Covenant or the "New Israel," which is what we as modern Christians are considered. So, America, being a child of Israel, also falls under God's divine protection, as a guardian of Israel, at least symbolically, Israel is covered by the wings of the eagle through America's protection.
