Senate Confirms Loretta Lynch as Attorney General

Senate Confirms Loretta Lynch as Attorney General

WASHINGTON — After one of the nation’s most protracted cabinet-level confirmation delays, the Senate Thursday approved Loretta E. Lynch to be attorney general. She is the first African-American woman to hold the position.

Ms. Lynch, the United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York, was confirmed 56 to 43, with 10 Republicans voting for her. SOURCE

These are the 10 turn-coat RINOs that voted FOR Loretta Lynch.

Loretta Lynch Confirmed

What we saw with the last election cycle was thought to be a GREAT thing for the United States; the GOP had control of BOTH Houses of Congress handed to them and had a decent majority to boot.

Many hoped that the GOP would take that majority and use it to rein in the sheer stupidity that was flowing from Washington, D.C. and Barack Obama.

Many saw an opportunity to turn this nation around, restore the good name of America, rebuild our military, restore our credit rating as a nation and to put this nation back on a course to become the greatest Super Power the world had ever seen.

Alas, it is not meant to be; we didn’t factor in the RINO vote.

In the end several Republicans — to the surprise of many of their own colleagues — voted aye for Ms. Lynch, including Mr. McConnell.

I’m sure most have heard the expression *pulling defeat from the jaws of victory*, well, it’s supposed to read the other way, but it appears to me that the GOP, at least this current batch, is exactly what I have called them for a long time; the weakest, most spineless bunch of miscreants that the voters could find. 

I know that Ted Cruz missed the vote, that is a well-known fact. 

I don’t know if Cruz missed it because he had more pressing matters and assumed the GOP was going to carry the day or if perhaps he already knew that there weren’t enough voted to stop Lynch from being seated.

Regardless, Cruz has hurt himself with many Conservative voters over this and I don’t know if that hurt will last, if it will translate into a BIG negative for Cruz or what exactly. Only time will tell on that point.

“She is a historic nominee, but also Senate Republicans are making history,” said Senator Patrick J. Leahy, Democrat of Vermont. “And I would say for the wrong reasons.” He added: “I can only hope that Senate Republicans will show her more respect as the attorney general of the United States than they did as a nominee. She has earned this respect. Her story is one of perseverance, of grace and grit.”

A historic moment in U.S. history, hmmmm, where have we heard that before?

Oh yeah, when Barack Hussein Obama was elected POTUS, both times. All we heard from the Dems and many pencil-necked RINOs was what a wonderful thing it was to participate in the election of the 1st BLACK man, a Democrat, to the White House.

I DO hope America realizes where that got us but somehow I just don’t believe the light went off for at least 10 Republican Senators.

Seriously, I don’t blame the Dems OR Obama, the GOP ran the weakest, the most unelectable candidates imaginable, Obama won and the Dems proceeded to do what it is they do, take America into the abyss of being a 3rd world nation.

I DO blame the GOP, I will always blame the GOP and the weak leadership it has in place. I am very serious in this statement; either the GOP finds its courage and GROWS A SET or this will be what we can and should expect from the entire GOP in the very near future.

    I watched Senator Jeff Sessions, AL last night, and his argument against Lynch is an indictment of all who voted for her.
    When questioned by Sessions during the confirmation hearings, she clearly indicated her bias and utter disregard for the rule of law (RE: illegal immigration).
    How can the chief law enforcement officer of the United States NOT hold the law as the supreme benchmark?!
    And how can our lawmakers expect any credibility when they confirm a self-proclaimed lawbreaker to that position?!
    Our constitution is being destroyed before our eyes, and it seems our “champions” are the ones swinging the hammers!

    I’ve already written to (and off) Mr. Flakey Jake. How he got elected as a republican with his democrat values and ideals is beyond me.

    Oh, that’s right – McLame pulled him along on his apron strings. I would have said Coat Tails, but only real men wear coats.

  3. Bunkerville says:

    The usual suspects sold us out once more.

  4. Alan Caruba says:

    The law to Obama, Holder and now Lynch is only what they say it is. If it disagrees with their political ideology and policies, they will ignore it. Isn’t that what criminals do? Ignore the law?

    • It appears that is what BHO and Holder did best… and as you pointed out the ” The Law is what they need it to be at any particular time or what they need to stay out of jail.” if either of us had done what Billary Clinton did and is doing we would all be in Ft. Levenworth Kansas..

      • minuteman26 says:

        Time for “We The People” to ignore Obama’s so called laws. Thanks to the 10 asshole RINOS mentioned above, we now have a female Holder running the Justice Dept.

  5. All Lynch is, is an Eric Holder without a set of cajones…she will pickup where Holder left off. She will continue with the total disregard of the United States Constitution. This is why Obama and Clinton will never face the justice system. It’s going to be the sa me ole Song and dance….

    Our REPUBLIC has indeed morphed into a democracy. These shitty excuses for representatives probably had a big fvckin party to celebrate their victory. How sad that we have succumed to the marxists.

    There is one advantage I see. Now when I wash my undies I don’t have to spray with Resolve Pet Oxi Advanced to get rid of the brown stains. :)

  8. HGPSURF says:

    Looks like we just can’t win when the ones who are supposed to be on our side might as well be Democrats.

  9. Fred, you and I disagreed about this a few years ago. But I’m on your page now, because I’ve got what I need, physically and literally, water, food, “precious metals”, to survive now. If there isn’t an actual Conservative to vote for this next time, 2016, I’m not going to vote. If the country decides it wants to tank, then it’s time to just watch out for me and mine and everyone else can go to hell, with the rest of the country.

      I have been far too close to the center mass of all this for far too long and even being retired hasn’t fully removed me from the fray… I think America, and Americans will be OK, IF, and it’s a huge if, we can wake up the goofy bastards in the GOP and get them back on track…

      Barring that, turn out the lights, the party is over…

  10. TomR,armed in Texas says:

    McConnell just got reelected senator for 6 years and I doubt he will give up his Senate Leadership in that time. In 2016 we need about eight or ten more solid conservatives in the Senate. Otherwise this crap will continue. Republican majority means little if half are “moderates”.

    The other thing we need to worry about is a conservative scotus having a major health issue in the next 2 years.

    Life’s looking rough for America.

  11. OregonBuzz says:

    Fred, I’m with you on turning on the lights and waking up the “goofys”. Unfortunately I fear that the time for an awakening is past. I watched a ‘man in the street’ interview last week – I don’t remember if it was Watters World or not, but the point is that the interviewer asked a man in the street; “What do you think about the current ignorance and apathy in America today.” The man in the street responded; “I don’t know, and I don’t care.” Says it all doesn’t it? The real loss, in my opinion, is the AWOL Congress. They all need a good dose of Viagra. I’m not much for “conspiracy theories”, but I think there is a lot of collusion going on and it seems very sudden that Congress would just abdicate the throne and refuse to be involved. Of course in the animal world biologists/scientists refer to a large group of baboons as a “congress”.
    Of course the other side of the coin is the infiltration of our educational system with Communists and other idiots who merely indoctrinate rather than educate. This has been going on for a long, long time and somehow Americans have ignored it. It will be the death of us I fear.
    If the American, or mostly American, electorate put the screeching harpy bitch from Arkansas to be President of this country we’re doomed.
    Let us pray brethren.

    There is an opportunity next year to get a Conservative Senator into Washington if we work this properly. With BLIMPIE Boxer retiring, it’s an opportunity to get Elizabeth Emken into office. I met her when she ran against Dianne Feinstein, and know she is a great candidate who can bring back some sanity if she gets into office. Her opponent will likely be Kountry Klub Kamala Harris who will do everything she can to wipe out the death penalty across America. One thing I’m asking here is this: please don’t inadvertently pronounce a curse on Emken’s campaign by saying she can’t win. If it’s God’s will, she can overcome the odds and help bring back some sanity to both the West Coast and the United States as a whole nation.
