Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions is about to get his 15 minutes of fame, leading the GOP’s response to President Obama’s pick for the U.S. Supreme Court.

His coming out promises to be dramatic stuff. A conservative Southerner who was nominated to the federal bench in 1985 by President Reagan, Sessions’ candidacy never made it out of the Judiciary Committee because of allegations of “racial insensitivity.”

Now that Sessions is on the other side of the table, he has promised civil deliberations. But in his first hearing in his new role this week, he was notably combative.

Expect the justice hearings to be gripping, with Sessions auditioning for a major national role in his party.

    Alabama’s federal government and their local politicians are just like Hitlers third reich in the way that they treat the locals who oppose their closed government and abuses of the general populace. Sessions is no different. America is a lost cause and we will likely see a 50% drop in real estate values from what they were a few years ago. We are becoming like a third world because we do not have control of our governments. You can see how Alabama treats the locals who try to particapate in government by doing a search for Saintrambone videos on Youtube. The videos I am talking about are at the top of the page.
