National Sheriffs’ Association Supports Senator Jeff Sessions for Attorney General…

A little known fact most are not familiar with – within your local jurisdiction, unless removed by State legislative construct, the County Sheriff is the highest recognized constitutional officer in your area....

trump and sessions(VIA TRUMP FACEBOOK) Every day members of the law enforcement community come to work prepared for anything. They understand that they are the thin blue line between a safe public and criminal activity — and each moment presents a new challenge.

Law enforcement understands the dangers of protecting their communities and go to work each day knowing they might be shot for their communities’ safety. This past year saw the highest number of law enforcement fatalities in five years including 21 that were ambushed, shot and killed.

Over the past few years’ law enforcement has been missing a key component to succeed in their jobs — federal government support.

While law enforcement is asked to do more and more with the ever-changing world of terrorism and public safety, the current administration has rolled-back much of the progress achieved through decades of effective policing through qualitative and quantitative resourcing.  In return the nation’s crime rates have risen faster than at any time in our modern history.

While the mood toward law enforcement at the federal level has degraded we now see how out of touch this administration has been with the public.  The dialogue between the administration and those charged with protecting us has grown outright hostile, making their jobs even more difficult and dangerous.

While this administration’s support is lacking, public support for law enforcement remains very high.

An October Gallup poll showed that three in four Americans have a “great deal” of respect for local law enforcement, the highest rate in 50 years. Americans understand the important role sheriffs, deputies and officers play in criminal justice and have confidence they will do their jobs fairly.

texas-border-1Of our nation’s institutions law enforcement ranks near or just below the nation’s military.

Not the media, Congress, schools, or the current administration have this level of support.

Law enforcement is gratified by the support and with a new executive branch administration comes new promise. Law enforcement knows that we have a federal partner with the nomination of U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General of the United States.

The Senate must confirm Sen. Sessions because law enforcement and the citizens they protect needs his expertise, dedication and honor at the Justice Department.

The nation’s sheriffs and deputies know Sen. Sessions will support them because throughout his career he has been a crime fighter who seeks justice fairly. As a U.S. attorney and Alabama attorney general, he successfully pursued and prosecuted violent criminals, corrupt politicians and white collar criminals.

During his service on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sessions has shown that he understands and values the resources law enforcement needs to do our jobs.

He worked with Democrats and Republicans to pass important legislation like the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 that rectified disparities in sentencing for drug crimes and the Fugitive Sex Offenders Act in 2012 which helps law enforcement track down fugitive sex offenders.

He likewise worked in a bipartisan fashion to reauthorize the Victims of Child Abuse Act.

Sessions supports solutions important to sheriffs and the law enforcement community. He understands the importance of the 1033 Program that provides excess, protective resources and equipment law enforcement needs to carry out their duty.

He understands that the immigration system is broken and law enforcement is stuck in the middle without a plan. Sen. Sessions agrees that jails should not be the home for Americas mentally ill and wants to work with law enforcement to reform the mental health system.

Sheriffs and deputies wake up each day knowing their lives may be in danger to keep our communities safe and protect the rule of law. They look forward to having an active ally in Attorney General Sessions to support them and do whatever necessary to make America safe.

~ Jonathan Thompson, Executive Director and CEO of the National Sheriffs’ Association.

THEN and only then did we open up the register, and make change. A couple years later, as a waitress, again I had to know all the prices, write them down on the check, add them up manually, and make change out of the register.

    We have many illegal immigration laws that are simply under enforced or unenforced because the Executive branch politized them. ICE and the Border Patrol, ATF, the FBI …all of our police agencies have been compromised by the DoJ. This will be a monumental task to reorder how law enforcement operates because the Obama administration placed so many restrictions on them.

      I followed the pizzagate thing while it was on the Reddit site.

      I went through the Podesta emails while they were also covered on Reddit.

      The one thing that made my hair stand on end was the reference to Moloch.

      That is NOT a name in common use. People who know who Moloch is/was are usually students of the Bible who understand the child sacrifice of Carthage and Canaan and why the Israelites considered Canaanites beyond the pale.

      Since I am fairly certain there are no people in Podesta’s staff who are students of scripture, that comment really got to me and creeped me out.

      I believe the phrase was “sacrifice a chicken to Moloch.”

      Har-de-har-har. Some joke.

      THAT is what made me pay attention to the entire thing.

        The child sacrifice habits of the tribes in Canaan were probably the main reason God told Joshua to kill the inhabitants of the Promised Land as they entered. But as usual, the Israelites did not obey God, and some of the native people were given mercy. These tribes’ child sacrificing habits were then picked up by the Jews, as is documented throughout the Old Testament. Those sacrificing their children did so to Moloch. God let the Jews be taken away from their homeland for years due to their rebellion and vile practices such as this.
