Satan Junior is now attempting to rework police reform agreements.

Sessions orders Justice Department to review all police reform agreements

Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered Justice Department officials to review reform agreements with troubled police forces nationwide, saying it was necessary to ensure that these pacts do not work against the Trump administration’s goals of promoting officer safety and morale while fighting violent crime.

In a two-page memo released Monday, Sessions said agreements reached previously between the department’s civil rights division and local police departments — a key legacy of the Obama administration — will be subject to review by his two top deputies, throwing into question whether all of the agreements will stay in place.

The memo was released not long before the department’s civil rights lawyers asked a federal judge to postpone until at least the end of June a hearing on a sweeping police reform agreement, known as a consent decree, with the Baltimore Police Department that was announced just days before President Trump took office.


I'm surprised that he hasn't tried to reinstate literacy tests.

Edit: These agreements are the product of years of investigations and evidence collection of police abuses. The fact that Sessions is even considering reworking just makes my blood boil and is pure evil. He's willing to subject communities (mostly communities of color) to unchecked abuse just for the hell of it.

When it rains, it pours.... hard.

WASHINGTON — Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials.

The 2016 primary fight is about to be rehashed in the DNC chair fight.

Certain individuals couldn't help but take jabs at a man with executive experience, a former civil rights attorney for the justice department, a cabinet secretary who has fought to make workers lives better during his tenure, and a man who was in the running to be HRC's VP because he doesn't run for election/reelection in a solid blue district. I'm solidly Team Perez.

I guess next time she needs to write some harmful op.eds and never concede.

Any good live streams out there?

CNN: In private, Burr quips about gun owners shooting Clinton

http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/31/politics/richard-burr-hillary-clinton-gun-owners/index.html

The North Carolina Republican, locked in a tight race for reelection, quipped that as he walked into a gun shop "nothing made me feel better" than seeing a magazine about rifles "with a picture of Hillary Clinton on the front of it."

"I was a little bit shocked at that -- it didn't have a bullseye on it," he said Saturday to GOP volunteers, prompting laughter from the crowd in Mooresville, North Carolina. "But on the bottom right (of the magazine), it had everybody for federal office in this particular state that they should vote for. So let me assure you, there's an army of support out there right now for our candidates."


My deplorable senator being deplorable. I really hope this puts Ross over the top.

This is how he's spending his last week of campaigning.

In final sprint, Trump targets Democratic states while Clinton tries to gin up enthusiasm among minorities

Trump campaign chief executive Stephen K. Bannon has settled on three states in particular — Michigan, Wisconsin and New Mexico — where the candidate and campaign will devote more time and money, according to four people familiar with the discussions who requested anonymity to discuss internal campaign talks. All three states were won by Obama in 2008 and 2012.

Bannon believes that if GOP voters rapidly “come home” nationally in light of recent events, that turnout plus late-breaking support among independents and blue-collar workers could bring new states into play beyond Pennsylvania, Nevada and Colorado — Democratic strongholds where Trump has been campaigning for months and remains behind, the people said.
