Senate majority leader McConnell refused to comment on Trump's hiring of Banon.McConnell wants to gut the filibuster and other Senate rules that require a majority of 60 votes.If the new Congress has its way,Trump's picks would scale through easily with 51 votes.

While Democrats would grill Sessions non-stop,the GOP would do everything they can to confirm him.
Bannon, a well known racist won't go through Senate confirmation but Senator Session, a well known Southern segregationist and a confirmed white nationalist will go through a lot of grilling not only from Democrats but by centrist republicans too. Why would Trump wants the old Southern Bigot to be the A/G. The euphoria of his presidency will disappear quickly with all the right wingers domination his cabinet. The Democrats will unify in opposition to him and I believe they can get two or three republican senators in Blue states too. I am not sure Session confirmation is guaranteed. This will be a battle royale.

Trump appointing Sessions as AG means he will go ahead with his immigration reform. Sessions is known as racist and VERY ANTI IMMIGRATION. Expect coming into the US to be one of the most difficult things ever.

You missed my point.If McConnell when asked by reporters on Banon's appointment won't even utter a statement what are the chances he wouldn't stop Sessions.It shows McConnell either accepts racists or supports racist ideologies himself.

Some persons have vowed not to move on after their evil party got defeated in the last US election. Trump is God's sent. But because they don't like God, they don't want Donald Trump...Watch them closely they use the word "religion"

They have four good years to do this but they'll all be defeated many times more because the devils will no longer run the show and America will become great again.

If Donald Trump could make it with diabolic media campaign against him, President Trump will make it through the satanic induced hate.

Mcconell is not going to say anything to get the ire of Trump. The battle for confirmation of Sessions will be very interesting . An old Southern segregationist in that very powerful and sensitive post. It makes one wonder what Trump is thinking.

Tarrh! which nation under GOD?

God left America the day Obama signed same sex marriage into law.


“You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination “ (Lev 18:22).

Just how serious did God take the sin of homosexuality? In Leviticus 20:13 He says, “If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads ."

So the death of America has come except Trump reverses that bill.

21Savagw you should understand what you read before quoting.

My comment was in regards to republicans and conservatives who voted Trump in this election.My mom is a republican but she did not vote republican this year.She's one in a few many republicans who defied party loyalty for the greater good of the country.


If she had voted Trump this year,I'd gladly put her in the same basket of deplorables that are unintelligent hypocritical morally bankrupt subhumans.If I see bigotry anywhere,I would not stand for it,I'd oppose it in every ways I can.

The argument for electoral college is ridiculous.A republican voter in Wyoming is for times more powerful than a California voter.

Wyoming is about 600k in population with 3 electoral votes.

California is 38million in population with 55 electoral votes.

There's 1 electoral vote for every 200k votes in Wyoming.

There's 55 electoral vote for every 700k votes in California.

The idea that liberal voters have more voice because they live in largely populated cities is ridiculous because their votes doesn't count as long as the 3 electoral votes in Wyoming is 4 times more powerful than the 55 from California.

Hello.

Given that each of these states is viewed as being culturally unique, if a larger populated state or region were to vote for a candidate simply because of some ethnocentricity, then the outcome would be unfair and undemocratic. Also, the smaller states would be permanently disenfranchised since their votes would not count, anytime the larger populated states had an interest to defend, or vote for.

In rudimentary terms a democratic election is described as the majority carrying the vote, but this can only work where you have a homogenous group of people. In the US you do not have that so you have to find a way to even the scales, and electoral college does that wonderfully.

A US President has no right to overturn a ruling made by the Supreme Court. Anyway, Trump's position on it was that the Supreme Court should've allowed each state to rule on it, but now that its been signed into law, nothing can be done about it.

Btw, you think the gay marriage issue was about equality, just to get married? lol. There have been gay people having sex and living together since America came into existence. Its just basically about the right to be treated as a married person. A gay guy working two jobs wants to be able to get special days off, etc for being a married man. That's all it really boils down to. I'm not religious and have no problem with gay people, and the honest truth is that we should leave religion out of politics.

President Obama didn't 'sign' any bill into law that established gay marriage. Rather it was the US Supreme Court that legalized same-sex marriage throughout America last year.

as long as it is your way you are okay with it. wake up, not everyone will think like you. the fact that you see people with differing ideologies from yours as deplorable makes you no different. you call yourselves liberals but your open mindedness is shutdown the moment you encounter people with diff views about issues.
