No More Slush Funds for Community Agitators

Jeff Sessions Ends DOJ Handouts for Leftist Groups

from Breitbart:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a new policy on Wednesday that prohibits payouts to third parties in settlements reached by the Justice Department.

The announcement came in a memorandum to all U.S. attorneys and Justice Department leaders.

For decades, through a variety of initiatives, the DOJ has insisted on donations to third parties as part of the settlements it reaches with defendants, especially corporations. In the Obama administration, this practice took on the character of a “slush fund,” which funneled hundreds of millions of dollars from these corporate defendants and put it into the hands of non-government organizations. read more

White House Ruled by Fear

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

Obama is an interesting case study of the classic schoolyard bully. The bully controls his turf, his schoolyard. He sets the rules, does what he wants and believes he’s free to push everyone else around.

 

It’s a familiar environment and he’s comfortable there. But take him out of that comfort zone, place him in another schoolyard, where he has no influence or reputation and he becomes a shrinking Violet, afraid to act for fear that his bluster and bravado might lead to an actual confrontation for which he is neither prepared nor equipped.

 

This is Barack Obama – domestic policy schoolyard bully. This is what he knows – community agitation. He understands nothing of foreign policy and it scares him to death.

 

No one outside United States fears or respects him. No foreign entity worries about his IRS, Justice Department, BLM, EPA, etc.

 

And this is the reason our foreign policy is a shambles. Obama is afraid to lead, afraid to take decisive action outside his own schoolyard. read more
