  • Jeff Sessios "has returned law and order to the Department of Justice"

    Jeff Sessions is the most underrated member of the Trump administration
    Edwin Meese III, Opinion contributor Published 5:00 a.m. ET Jan. 30, 2018

    The Attorney General has returned law and order to the Department of Justice ó and the United States.

    On the anniversary of President Trumpís inauguration and in the days leading up to his first State of the Union address, observers have rightfully pointed out the important accomplishments of his administration so far, including deregulation, tax reform and the appointment of exceptional judges to the federal bench. Largely unnoticed has been the extraordinary work that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has done in the Department of Justice to create a Reaganesque resurgence of law and order.

    There was plenty of work to be done. Sessions inherited an agency that had ceded its basic duty to enforce the nationís law: It oversaw the incompetent Fast and Furious program, which gave drug cartels nearly 2,000 dangerous weapons, one of which was used to kill a U.S. Border Control agent; it declined to file criminal charges against Lois Lerner, who led the IRS as it targeted conservative organizations; it chose not to enforce federal drug laws; it even sued the state of Arizona for trying to crack down on illegal immigration.

    Sessions has restored integrity to the office of Attorney General and has already made significant improvements to the DoJ. He has signaled to the country that its federal government will again take law and order seriously. Sessions has shown this in three crucial policy areas in particular: immigration, violent crime and drug enforcement.

    How?

    By recusing himself from the Russia investigation?
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

      He messed up one time... If he hadn't recused himself, CNN wouldn't even have a Trump-Russia Nothing Burger...

        The war on drugs is as big a disaster as prohibition.

              I spent 35 years in law enforcement. I never saw any war on drugs.
              Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                  I'm very happy with Trump's performance. It certainly isn't perfect but it is close enough for this world. That doesn't mean that he and his appointees should be free from seriously critical feedback from well meaning citizens.

                  In the case of Sessions I believe that it is within the rights of the states to determine their own drug laws and that it is not within those rights to determine immigration policy. There is a bit of history and precedent as states, cities, and counties were allowed to set their own alcohol standards prior to prohibition and once again after it was abolished. The question of not enforcing laws is tricky but no one where I live is complaining that the laws on cohabitation are not being enforced. Laws that are unenforceable and unpopular lead to the decline of law and order not the strengthening there of.

                    That's really good to know, Doc. How soon will Clinton be charged and tried? Because until she is, there is no justice in America, period.

                      Let's start with charging every Clinton staffer who mishandled classified info or destroyed government property (blackberries), including Weiner boy's ex-wife
