President Trump and Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri Joint Press Conference…

Moments ago President Trump and Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri met in the Oval Office. Following their discussions President Trump and PM Hariri held a joint press conference in the Rose Garden.

President Trump focused his remarks on Syria, terrorism and the refugee crisis as he delivered a statement alongside Prime Minister Saad Hariri of Lebanon:

.

During press questioning President Trump is also asked about his confidence in Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Again President Trump affirmed his confidence in Sessions’ ability, however he also noted frustration (“disappointment”) with Session’s reluctance to confront corruption within the DC swamp.

My hunch is that Sessions will tender his resignation within 48 hours; this will lead to a conversation with President Trump. If Trump doesn’t accept the resignation it will be because Sessions agrees to change approach and confront the corruption within DC including the corruption within the DOJ. (more on that later)

  1. Forget soap operas!
    This is WAY better!

    I’ve never had so much fun watching a political process in all my life. And it’s fun. Really, really, REALLY fun being on the winning team-especially as the other 2 sides haven’t figured out their loss just yet.

    POTUS and Sessions playing 44D[sic] chess? How?

    If POTUS refuses the resignation, Sessions, egg on his face, must recant his recusal and aggressively go after HRC, et al. That, however, will result in swampers going after Sessions with a vengeance thus compromising his ability to carry out POTUS directive. No choice but to resign again. Onus on Sessions; POTUS installs new AG, recess appointment.

      Wait…how do we know a compromise won’t take place? Sessions moving to another position, like maybe Rosenstein’s while President Trump nominates another AG? Maybe the plan is working up to the congress getting the heck out of Washington just in time for a recess appointment?

      I’m guessing just like everybody else is……normally I would stay mum until the facts are revealed, but working myself up into a tizzy over all the comments. Patience is not one of my virtues.

        I’m guessing too… maybe Trump wants Sessions to resign, but he doesn’t want to ask him to resign because Mueller might try to charge him with obstruction of justice. Mueller would do it fast, after a Sessions resignation but before a replacement, in order to keep from being fired himself, and to make it harder for Trump to get rid of him.

          Obstruction of Justice?!? Sessions recused himself from any investigation. If President Trump fires AG Sessions, how is that obstruction by either one of them?

          The only way cries of “Obstruction!” will be raised is if The President fires Mueller.

    I think you are entirely wrong. Trump is not the type to tweet out personal disappointments with long-time allies. He’s known Sessions since 2005. This, to me, is a game. Did you notice not only did Sen. Machin get on Sessions side, so did Schumer today on the floor of the Senate? Trump is setting up the democrats big time. He’s not firing Sessions. Sessions is not recusing. He is most likely working on something big…either leaker-gate, charges for some Obama admin types, Comey charges or maybe Clinton-related stuff.

    He could have as easily told Sessions his frustrations behind the scenes. There was no need to tweet this stuff out. Also, why would he start this whole Sessions thing with an interview with the NYT…with some of the very same reporters who used LEAKS to create stories pounding Trump?

    Very very far off the mark. It is the exact opposite. Sessions is about to drop the hammer on someone or a group of someones.

              And you will wind up having just Donald Trump at the end of the day. Trump all by himself. That is exactly what the enemy wants. Him isolated, without patriots to point out the treasonous swamp critters attempting to ease the President along into co-operating with the ruling class elites.

              It is a form of cult of personality to believe any one person can operate by himself, even a force of nature like Donald Trump. To believe he is better off without a patriot who mirrors his anti-Illegal Alien, anti-Sanctuary, anti-Globalist, Pro-American, anti-“Free” trade characteristics boggles the mind.

      For what little it’s worth, I believe you are probably right.

      There is also a story on Infowars about how Mueller’s investigation may really be of the Clinton crime cartel, based on the nature of the people he has hired (former DNC staffers, yes, but each of them with an axe to grind against the cartel, and who are experts in the kind of crimes the Clintons are involved with, not in election tampering).

      If all of this is right, and it just may be, things are unfolding according to God’s plan and the key players are not tipping their hands yet.

      I’m with you Kristen, especially after reading the newer article on here about Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s little IT guy was just arrested trying to flee the country last night. Unfortunately, they let him out on bail and made it public he has to be home from 10pm-6am. Kinda puts a target on him if you ask me.

      I have no idea why they would give him bail when he is such a flight risk. I would’ve had him locked up with special security, so he stays breathing. I’m sure it wouldn’t be too hard to get him to flip and start singing.

      The article by Sundance also stated that the computer parts that were smashed were picked up at DWS home. If so, it looks really bad on her.

      There are a few good links shared by fellow Treepers that fill in a lot of areas. The nooses are tightening on more than a few politicians, that is my take and the reason why our President is distancing himself from our honorable Sessions. (I know he’s not a judge, but he’s got a lot of honor).

      Things are slowly coming together, and I am predicting we will see and hear more slowly but surely. All of this is going to take awhile, and we don’t even know if there have been grand juries going on. We just have to be patient and keep our eyes on as much as possible and share what we know amongst fellow Treepers.

          That was a fallacious argument. There was no “thing” for her to recuse herself from, but she kind of did anyway by punting the decision of prosecuting the email case to Comey. Naturally this was an elaborate “fix” to bury the controversy, but the point remains. There is no comparison here to Sessions.

          Legal people say that he did have to recuse. I am quite sure that if Holder, Lynch or Comey were part of the DingleBarry campaign they also would.

          I see a lot of non-legal people acting all ‘Holiday Inn Express’ with their personal opinions but no substance. At best this Sessions recusal was a judgment call, a coin toss since there is little precedent for the AG and really anywhere else. You can believe you or President Trump know more about the arcane legalities if you want.

          What this is really about is scapegoating Sessions for the Russia mess that Trump let fester since the beginning, and compounding it by not blanket firing Obama critters and by also bringing in GOPers into the White House. Who is everybody gonna scapegoat next once they have finished savaging a patriot like Sessions? When does the buck stop at the oval office?

            Well said, Blade. There is one aspect that has been sinking into my thinking the last few days though – I have the utmost respect for Sessions and believe you would be hard pressed to find any politician as honorable. And I believe the Sessions bashing is mindless. But I am starting to look at this from the viewpoint that taking a position like AG comes with the duty to defend the POTUS first, yourself second. The fact that Sessions declined to even notify DJT of his recusal, and the broad strokes contained in his recusal are starting to make me wonder why he left DJT to defend himself.

            • Blade says:

              Thing is, the Attorney General is not the President’s lawyer. There is a White House operation specifically for that. The AG is exactly the same as SecDef, SecState, SecTreasury, cabinet level statutory offices created by the earliest quorums in the 1st Congress whose members included Madison among others. If the AG was to be the President’s lawyer then it would be necessarily spelled out in Article II.

              The Constitution delegated the power to Congress to create all lesser non-Constitutional offices and it is really only in the preamble: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice …” Once they created these positions Hamilton, Jefferson, Knox and Randolph could be seated in President Washington’s cabinet.

              As I said elsewhere, the Attorney General is no more the President’s lawyer than the SecDef is his bodyguard, SecTreasury is his accountant, the SecState is his travel agent. By statute he is the United States federal government’s lawyer and specifically prosecutor to the Supreme Court. This is not to say he heads an independent agency behind a firewall, but he is not the President’s protector. The handwringers will need to blame White House legal counsel failings here, or God forbid, blame the President for not getting good lawyers like Sekulow in there sooner.

              The problem is we really don’t know all the facts. Going by the public comments of President-Elect Trump calling off any Hillary prosecution, and his orders to Sessions to concentrate on gangs and illegals leads to one set of thoughts. But we just don’t know what Trump and Sessions talked about between election day and the AG swearing in during February. However, we do not have any public statements by President-Elect or President Trump before this week advocating in any meaningful way for the DoJ to go after the deep state and the enemy camps of Obama and Hillary. In fact, all public information is quite to the contrary. Thus I hope this is a very elaborate ruse ( but if so, he better stop torturing his supporters like this! He is gaslighting us worse than the Enemedia ).

              The handwringers are merely engaging in another feeding frenzy of whipping a scapegoat. But this time of a patriot of the highest order and that’s severly ticking me off. And none of them realize that Sessions is as good as they get and no-one who follows his exit would be on the Trump Train. Indeed they will most likely be completely at odds with the Second Amendment, Illegals, Sanctuaries, Nationalism, Fair Trade. It will be another Pompeo or Mueller type swamp thing. Wouldn’t that be awesome? Mueller as AG. Yay!

                  His recusal is a point of debate. Stop making like it is a slam dunk and that legal minds don’t agree with him. There are no good similar precedental cases to cite for comparison so it is a judgment call. But on the back end, had he not recused, there is the distinct possibility of any decisions or even prosecutions of Hillary for email or Ukraine or whatever being challenged or appealed and tossed. Again, judgment call.

                  If Holder, Lynch or Reno had campaigned for their rotten President can you honestly say we would not asking for their recusal for matters concerning their campaigns and their oppositions?

                  When an issue is right on the line in the gray area most honest people err on the side of caution to prevent spoiling the fruit later, it is a logical choice. He also prevented the line of attack that Trump’s DoJ is corrupt because of his non-recusal.

                  I don’t want Sessions to go. I don’t want a Musical Cabinet, trading seats and booting people out. Don’t want a revolving door at Justice. Sessions has his hands full restoring the confidence and thirst for achievement at the DOJ. That is as critical a task as any.

                  Nothing can happen until the little whippersnappers are ready to leave the bluegill pond and head out to sea to catch some serious predators. Esprit de corps, it’s not just for idiot presidents to mispronounce. Without that the DOJ cannot take down the public figures that for far too long were considered untouchable, and very dangerous.

                  If you strike a King with a Sword, you’d best succeed, or you will perish. How long has it been since the DOJ was serious about righting massive Presidential wrongs? It’s going to take a great deal of confidence and courage to excise this Cancer. I hope that they are working on it, hard, and carefully.

        Nobody knows THAT to be a fact. We, nor anybody in the media are privy to the private conversations of AG Sessions and President Trump.

        It is possible that Sessions suggested there may be some loopholes in the DoJ Ethics Rules that could allow him to oversee the investigation, and when that didn’t pan out, he neglected to inform the President and went ahead and recused himself – to the President’s HORROR!

  11. “My hunch is that Sessions will tender his resignation within 48 hours; this will lead to a conversation with President Trump. If Trump doesn’t accept the resignation it will be because Sessions agrees to change approach and confront the corruption within DC including the corruption within the DOJ.”

    I’m reminded of an old saying from the campaign trail, “We’re gonna teach them how to win!”

    Sessions (who is doing a fantastic job enforcing immigration law) appears to be playing by traditional Republican gentleman rules. Perhaps Trump is using this as one of those teachable moments to introduce a new playbook? Interesting times indeed.

    I’m glad to see more of us are frustrated with Sessions, and it all begin with his recusal. I came on the board a number of months ago, and thought it was a bad move for Sessions to recuse himself. But many on this board come down on me pretty hard. Which I understand, because Sessions is a very good man but he caved immediately without checking with Trump.

    Trump has been fuming over this for months, I was fuming over this for months. Every time I brought it up here I got blasted and called anti-Trump (which I’m not).

    It’s like Sessions has some type of “concept of honor” that is un-flexible. He doesn’t look at the big picture.

    The question Sessions should have asked himself is “DID Jeff Sessions do anything wrong dealing with his russian dealings? Yes or No.” If NO, he should have not recused himself and just go before congress and explain his “lapse in memory” because part of his job as senator means meeting with foreign countries but it wasn’t part of the campaign. Then Sessions could have just listed other senators that also meet with that ambassador and show pictures of Dems doing the same thing.

    Nov. 9, 2016 war was declared by the Deep State and UniParty/NeverTrumpers.
    The Trump Transition Team, incoming administration and POTUS-elect did nothing to marshall themselves against the fight to the death that was well underway (many signs of it for months).

    The choices POTUS made regarding keeping Comey and McCabe and Sally Yates and not prosecuting the Clintons were brutally naive.

    Everything flows from that after the Deep State took down Flynn.

    The horses were gone from barn long before Sessions was nominated.
    And part of looking for an AG should have been the matter of “recusal” since the topics were well known and the attacks in Jan-Feb-Mar were all about the campaign and Trump’s Org and family.

    That’s the reality.

    Made worse by WH staff that was not first rate and all loyalists.
    We knew who the loyalists were.
    Almost none were chosen for messaging, for secrecy, for fealty.

    Flynn shoved out, Boris was ejected, Katrina never chosen, Corey left out, Michael Cohen marginalized, and the Senate slow-walking everything. Brad Pariscale sent outside.
    We had KAC, Jared, Bannon (under fire). We had Reince and Pence responsible for staff that was leaking massively, and legislation going nowhere. We had song and dance and nothing we wanted and nobody we trusted. Months for good people to get Senate approval. Vicious fights in the hearings.

    All the while, Comey baiting POTUS into the trap of Special Counsel. And POTUS fell for it.

    This I know about Jeff Sessions. He’ll get all the enemies of MAGA. He’ll get convictions and maximum sentences. He’s titanium. Recall his last testimony in June where he was fierce.
    He’s not a street fighter. But he’s made of strong values.

As I indicated earlier, an important battle that began last week and ended how with ISIS wiped out of the area, included Hezbollah, Lebanese army and Syria forces, including AF. This is the first coordinated effort of the Lebanese army with Hezbollah. The battle was near the Lebanese town of Arsal and the Syrian town of Fleita, into a mountainous area which now Hezbollah controls.

    As with all things ME, public statements like what Hariri said today and reality on the ground are often quite different. ISIS, AQ and al Nusra have met Hezbollah in Syria for 6 years. Hezbollah has destroyed tens of thousands of the terrorists. The people who value them most in Syria and Lebanon are Christians. The Shiite Hezbollah have fought and died protecting Christians and Churches and historic shrines. It’s a complex world in the Levant and ME.

    “The offensive launched in the Jurd d’Ersal by the Syrian Arab Army, with Hezbollah and in coordination with the Lebanese Army, is the first visible fruit of Washington’s new policy. While harshly criticising the presence of Hezbollah, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, at the request of Saudi Arabia, authorised his army to participate in the operation. This is the first time that the two armies – Lebanese and Syrian – and the Resistance, have officially acted together. Riyadh, without disarming in the face of the Party of God and Iran, decided that it made more sense to work with Hezbollah and finish in priority with the jihadists.”

    “Finally, this war, which was intended to destroy the states of the region, is now taking the opposite direction – the unity of the forces of Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.”

    The writer attributes the results of this to President Donald J. Trump. One must wholeheartedly agree.
