Trump Endorses Tuberville for Alabama Senate Over Sessions

Trump Endorses Tuberville for Alabama Senate Over Sessions

“He is a REAL LEADER who will never let MAGA/KAG, or our Country, down!”

https://youtu.be/oCtO80GBrfg

President Donald Trump officially endorsed former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville over his former attorney general Jeff Sessions.

Sessions, then an Alabama senator, became one of Trump’s earliest supporters in 2016.

Trump made him attorney general, but the relationship soured. In September 2018, Trump made his feelings known:

In September, Trump took his criticism to a new level when he disassociated Sessions from the administration, including the attorney general’s border enforcement efforts.

“I don’t have an attorney general. It’s very sad,” Trump said in an interview with Hill.TV. “I’m not happy at the border, I’m not happy with numerous things, not just this.”

The broadsides became even more pointed in recent weeks, when Trump described Sessions as “disgraceful” for asking the Justice Department’s inspector general – not prosecutors – to review Republican allegations of surveillance abuses related to the monitoring of a former Trump campaign aide.

Sessions’ recusal in March 2017 for failing to disclose election-year meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak – and Trump’s dismissal of FBI Director James Comey in May 2017 – prompted the appointment of Mueller, a former FBI director, as the Justice Department’s special counsel to direct the wide-ranging Russia inquiry.

Sessions tweeted about Trump’s snub:

Men sometimes reach a critical test that ends up defining them. Session, the Corporal Upham of Politics had such a test in May 2017. He failed.

    Was Upham the guy in Private Ryan who stood by in fear while is squad mate was murdered with a knife by an SS Soldier?

New blood needed. All trump states must send their MAGA-ist folks to DC

He stood by the principles that Trump championed and said i recuse when he should have stepped up and shielded those principles from the hoax.

War Eagle! Unlike Sessions, Tuberville’s teams would not punt when they were deep in the opponent’s territory. They kept the ball and drove.

There was a saying that Queen Victoria’s wars were “won on the playing fields at Eton” [where future officers learned to “play on” and play the game]. Sessions woulda coulda shoulda learned some lessons from the gridiron at Auburn.

Conspicuous display of public morality doesn’t play well, since Romney.

If Sessions was tricked by Rosenstein and the other coup participants, then President Trump would have been wiser to forgive him and endorse his candidacy. It would have cemented Sessions’s support and would have shown that the president is a big enough man to get past the Russia hoax.

On the other hand, if Sessions wasn’t tricked and knew what he was doing when he recused himself, then President Trump was justified in endorsing his opponent.

I don’t know which of those alternatives is true.

    Whether Rosenstein tricked him or not, we all make mistakes.

    But if the best cancer surgeon in the world got fired from an administrative job for doing something stupid, I wouldn’t hold it against him if I needed a cancer operation.

    We need fighters in the U.S. Senate against all forms of immigration.

    Sessions is the man for this life-saving work. Americans with stagnant wages kill themselves. People being forced to live in a society which tells them they’re evil for preferring their own countrymen makes people despair. The suicide numbers have been going up. So much goes into this.

    We need Sessions.

      Dantzig93101 in reply to Katy L. Stamper. | March 11, 2020 at 12:24 pm

      It’s possible to be tricked without being stupid. I present myself as Exhibit A.

      However, if Sessions knowingly enabled the Russia hoax and the subsequent persecutions, he’s unfit for any position of trust. That’s my opinion, though I agree with you about immigration, both legal and illegal.

        notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Dantzig93101. | March 11, 2020 at 1:07 pm

        Recusing is sort of like telling your boss:

        “Nope I’m not doing that work you’re paying me to do.”

        Sounds a lot like the Democrat Do-Nothing House too doesn’ it…

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Dantzig93101. | March 11, 2020 at 1:05 pm

    Sessions wasn’t tricked – he’s a fool.

No surprise. He endorsed Strange the last time.

Katy L. Stamper | March 11, 2020 at 11:50 am

With all due respect to all commenters here, we have a problem as Mark Steyn so pithily puts it:

The future belongs to those that show up.

Right now, we have foreigners, legal, illegal including visa overstayers, arranging to show up in our future in HUGE almost unfathomable numbers, swamping our own posterity in our own country.

These foreigners bring counterproductive customs and mores.

No matter how unsuited Jeff Sessions was to be A.G., that doesn’t mean he is ill-suited to be senator. AS SENATOR, he almost single-handedly BEAT BACK SB 744 in 2013 which would have given an amnesty.

In a body of only 100 members, a Senator has an outsized power to stop bad bills and to push good ones.

Tommy Tuberville is NOT AmeriCAN first. He’s employer first. A country is more than an economy. We must look in the mirror and change those things that make our employers so miserable that they want to hire illegal aliens and foreigners of all stripes, first. What is wrong with our model?

We must analyze that.

Here’s Tommy Tuberville:

During another portion of the speech, Tuberville said he welcomes job-seeking migrants to the U.S. and supports providing them a pathway to American citizenship.

Alabama candidate for the U.S. Senate Tommy Tuberville, former Auburn University football coach, has hired the chief Republican aide for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s organization dedicated to lobbying Congress to import more foreign workers to take American jobs.

In May, the Tuberville campaign announced that it had hired consultant Rob Jesmer — Zuckerberg’s chief GOP aide for FWD.us, the billionaire’s cheap labor lobbying group that advocates giving amnesty to illegal aliens, as well as allowing Silicon Valley tech giants to have an unlimited supply of white-collar foreign workers.

Last year:
During a July speech, Tuberville said:

We got 100,000 people a month coming across the border. We don’t know who they are. We need them. But at least we got to know who they are. [Emphasis added]

More from:
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/08/19/alabama-gop-senate-candidate-wants-illegals-to-fill-american-jobs-hires-zuckerberg-cheap-labor-aide/

Similarly, in a August 3 speech at the Shoals Republican Club, Tuberville said he wanted foreign workers to come across the southern border to take U.S. jobs so long as they are vetted:

I’m for the border, again I can go through all this, I’m for the border, I’ve been down there, I’ve seen it. There are people coming across the border that need jobs, okay, and we want them to come over here, we just need to know who’s here, okay. Put the wall up, then we let them come in, and become citizens like we all became citizens. But there’s some people coming across there border that are not coming over here to get jobs, they’re coming to kill you, you, and you. And they’re going to take this country over. And we, you know what I’m talking about. And we better start talking about it. [Emphasis added]

When Tuberville was pressed by local Alabama radio host Dale Jackson about what level of legal immigration he would like to see — the U.S. currently admits about 1.2 million legal immigrants annually — the Senate candidate reiterated that despite American workers being laid off from their white-collar jobs and forced to train their H-1B visa foreign replacements, the nation “need[s] workers.”

JACKSON: Do we allow too many people to come into the legal status as well? Because legal workers, we all know illegal workers surpress the wages of folks who are the lower economic spectrum. Legal workers and I’m not talking about just from Mexico, but we’re talking about from India and other places that come in and do jobs that Americans will do but suppress the wages. You saw it at Disney World. We saw it in the tech industry. There’s a lot of legal immigration that’s suppressing wages. Is that a problem too? [Emphasis added]

TUBERVILLE: Yeah, I think there’s going to continue to be a problem, but, but again, we need workers. Dale, I’m going to tell you … you see homes going up and you don’t see Americans. [Emphasis added]

During a conversation with the Huts and Nuts podcast on August 5, Tuberville said all residents in the U.S., including native-born citizens, are immigrants as justification for his position that businesses need foreign workers:

First thing, no matter what we do, with any immigration law or any path to citizenship, we’ve got to put up a wall. We’ve got to stop the flow of people coming in and out. We got to know who’s here. Then you start going through DACA and all the things in terms of amnesty, and figure out what direction we need to go. We can’t do anything in immigration until you stop the flow of people coming in. Again, we need people here.”

“We need people in this country that will work,” Tuberville continued. “We are all immigrants. We just got to know who is here and we got to limit it to the point where people come the right way. And once we do that we can make the tough decisions on the DACA and the amnesty and all those things.”

On local Alabama radio’s Jeff Poor Show, Tuberville said there was “no doubt” that immigration, illegal and legal, has an impact on Americans’ wages but that the nation needs “smart workers.”

“I don’t think there’s any doubt about that,” Tuberville said. “The problem is we’re getting to a point where we don’t need just workers. We need smarter workers – people that can come here that have skills.”

When asked by Breitbart News if Tuberville acknowledged the economic impact that mass legal immigration has on American workers, Tuberville said his position was based on comments made by President Trump:

President Trump said, “I need people coming in because we need people to run the factories and plants and companies that are moving back in,” he told a group of reporters from regional newspapers. “We need people.” [Emphasis added]

Now Alabama has the best workforce in the world. Our workers are second to none. We may not need these workers in Alabama. But if President Trump says he needs people in some places then I trust him. [Emphasis added]

Last year, U.S. businesses and corporations attempted to outsource nearly 420,000 American jobs to foreigners through the H-1B visa program — a number that outpaces the population of Tampa, Florida.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Katy L. Stamper. | March 11, 2020 at 12:58 pm

    Trump needs people,alright. Those office buildings and hotels don’t clean themselves. Yes, I support him as president, but am also realistic enough to know that he is not about to cut off a source of cheap labor.

    healthguyfsu in reply to Katy L. Stamper. | March 11, 2020 at 4:01 pm

    Nothing you’ve quoted should sour on Tubberville. A path to legal immigration and legal citizenship should always be the goal. In fact, if we could make that process better and more straightforward for productive newcomers, then we should absolutely do it!

    Our birth rate is declining. We need a productive young labor force to be imported. We just can’t get it from illegal crossings that then send a bunch of the money out of our economy and into their home countries (and those are just the ones that work). Failing to recognize this birth rate as a problem is a surefire way to end up like Japan.

    DSHornet in reply to Katy L. Stamper. | March 11, 2020 at 4:09 pm

    As an Alabamian, I’m dismayed to see such an obvious, stridently political statement for or against either Tuberville or Sessions. I suggest this isn’t the place for that.

    In my opinion, of course.
    .

      Katy L. Stamper in reply to DSHornet. | March 11, 2020 at 4:28 pm

      When the people of our country are at stake, Sir, it would be dishonorable not to speak.

      Strident?

      When we have schools in Georgia where the student body speaks 140 languages, exactly how timid should we be about changing our residents? Should we let our children suffer because it’s “strident”?

      If you had attended the hearings and other matters I have attended here in Georgia, where illegal aliens’ representatives appear, what is being said here would be considered being chummy.

      They NEVER hesitate to call Americans racists, bigots, white supremacists and whatever else will get them what they want.

      Do you have any criticism of Antifa, Sir? Any for Lindsey Graham, our perenial (sp?) pusher of more immigration? Any criticism of Disney, et al., for making Americans train their replacements?

      Just wondering…

      Katy L. Stamper in reply to DSHornet. | March 11, 2020 at 4:31 pm

      Sir, I also wonder, WHERE do you think the correct place is, to discuss these country-altering votes?

      We discussed Trump v. Cruz v. Carson v. Rubio quite thoroughly and heatedly.

      I’m disinterested in a neutered, milquetoast discussion that does nothing but allow our destroyers to walk over us, because we are too easily intimidated into defending our own interests. I take my own side in a fight!

      Remember the Alamo!

While I can’t comment on Mr. Tuberville’s political positions, his stint as head football coach at my alma mater—the University of Cincinnati—left much to be desired. Coach Tuberville basically took the University’s money to finance his retirement lifestyle of golf and leisure. He had zero interest in the actual job at hand and the results on the field and in recruiting bore that out.

Grifter’s gonna grift.

    healthguyfsu in reply to I-71_Exile. | March 11, 2020 at 4:03 pm

    Cincy didn’t exactly have a lot to work with. The landscape shifted around them and they got left out in the cold after the big shuffles.

    It’s going to happen again and many others might find themselves in that same boat, my alma mater included if they aren’t careful.

Sessions is not a bad man, he just isn’t the right man.

    maxmillion in reply to Same Same. | March 11, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    I’m afraid Sessions exposed himself as a politician who has already spent too much time in the Senate and is no longer good for much of anything anymore.

DJT hopefully checked if coach Tommy involved an any under table recruiting, had any ahem personnel issues with the cheerleaders / coeds or called any players a bad name that begins with n. And even if not if he can be tagged on such. coach Tommy becoming next judge Roy and jonsey being permanent would be self inflicted mess.

As long as Alabama elects its Republican nominee in November, I won’t begrudge anyone there his or her preference in this primary.

    Katy L. Stamper in reply to McGehee. | March 11, 2020 at 1:26 pm

    Personnel is policy.

    Why vote GOP if they’re going to make us into Mexico, Central America, India?

    I mean, why vote at all, if the end result is AmeriCANS are made 3rd class citizens in their own country.

    I’ll tell you what: let’s just make all the illegals and all foreigners citizens right now, give ’em the vote and be done with it.

    Enjoy your socialized DMV medicine, empty stores, loss of weapons, and dictator.

    Tuberville, reading his quotes, doesn’t hit me as someone who has thought ANY of this out. And his staff certainly isn’t encouraging him to do so.

      Letting the Democrats keep that seat would be so much better?

      That’s as bad as being #NeverTrump.

        Katy L. Stamper in reply to McGehee. | March 11, 2020 at 1:55 pm

        If a pro-Continued-Mass_immigration senator is elected, frankly, it doesn’t make much difference.

        The country dies faster or slower, whichever.

        You can say all you wish about how bad the dems are, but really, as far as teh Great Replacement goes – which is really meant to completely annihilate American culture – the GOP is just as invested in it as the dems. If they weren’t, when the GOP had the house and senate, we’d have had $$ for the border fence, for ERO operations, changes to asylum and other laws.

        I’m looking at the big picture. I believe America is the best country on earth, bar none. But if we change into Mexico or India, we’re just a really really big broke country with a dictator.

        I care about what happens. It would be nice if the GOP cared about what the country turns into. Until I see they do, dem, gop, no difference.

          From the quotes you provided, it doesn’t appear that Tuberville favors illegal immigration, and you’d be hard pressed to find very many people who oppose at least some legal immigration. (I’m one, or at least I’m in favor of an immigration moratorium until we manage to absorb and Americanize the millions we’ve already admitted – but I’m also aware that we have about a million more jobs than available labor due to economic growth.) Latin America provides us with agricultural workers among other things, but they should be subject to some sort of Bracero program, where they come seasonally (as they used to) to work the fields et al and then return to Mexico. It worked for decades before LBJ put them on welfare and let them stay in country. (We had a similar program in upstate NY when I was a kid – the growers would import farm labor from the south then send them back again after the season was over.) We need tech labor, but importing them from China seems suicidal to me, given that at least a percentage of them are going to be spies – but the Indian people seem to be pretty pro-West and pro-American and are good tech workers. And yes, we should (and could, if we had the resolve) deport each and every illegal we find.

          Katy L. Stamper in reply to Katy L. Stamper. | March 11, 2020 at 3:28 pm

          From the quotes you provided, it doesn’t appear that Tuberville favors illegal immigration,

          If you read the quotes, he favors building a wall, and then letting in the same people. So why bother building a wall? So we know who they are. They’ll still vote socialist every time. Bye bye 2nd amendment. Bye bye English as the language. Hello, DMV hospital.

          and you’d be hard pressed to find very many people who oppose at least some legal immigration.

          I oppose all legal immigration unless the person is Einstein.
          As far as I’m aware, Einstein is dead.

          (I’m one, or at least I’m in favor of an immigration moratorium until we manage to absorb and Americanize the millions we’ve already admitted –

          but I’m also aware that we have about a million more jobs than available labor due to economic growth.)

          We don’t have a million more jobs than available labor. As I wrote on a post, we have a system wherein we make job unattractive with low wages (aliens depress wages, simple supply and demand) and we make people unattractive employees. We should figure this out and fix it, not cut and run on our own unemployed people. Millions of Americans are not back in the labor force although they are looking for employment. Off the cuff, maybe a CCC-type program. Move the Americans to the jobs.

          Latin America provides us with agricultural workers among other things, but they should be subject to some sort of Bracero program, where they come seasonally (as they used to) to work the fields et al and then return to Mexico. It worked for decades before LBJ put them on welfare and let them stay in country.

          Okay, but why? We did this work by Americans before. We need to figure out why you say and so many others say, American CANNOT WORK as a country. Basically y’all are saying the United States is dysfunctional. Well, let’s figure it out and make it functional. Something is going on here and we should investigate and repair it, not just change to Mexico for strawberries and lettuce.

          We need tech labor, but importing them from China seems suicidal to me, given that at least a percentage of them are going to be spies –

          Tech labor? Seriously? Why did Disney et al. require AMERICAN tech workers to train their replacements? Do you think the Americans were quitting en masse? If you will research, you will see we have MORE STEM graduates than jobs for them. You are importing indians to make Americans lower class. Why????????? Because they can’t file unemployment, workers comp, etc., claims?

          but the Indian people seem to be pretty pro-West and pro-American and are good tech workers.

          Pro-West isn’t American. I had a silicon valley tech worker tell me MORE THAN 75% of the tech workers there are foreigners. AND THEN WE WONDER WHY THEY ARE DEPLATFORMING US ON SOCIAL MEDIA. Remember Project Veritas’ undercover video of those making the decisions on the platforms. We’re all flag waving rednecks to Asian Indians so they shadowban us, deplatform us etc.

          Social media platforms are essentially CULTURAL. Our culture is our life’s blood. Just as we do not permit foreigners to work for defense department contractors, we should not permit Foreigners to work for our Social tech platforms. They don’t understand nor appreciate American culture.

          Further, I read anothe tech worker that commented they bring their caste system with them to work. And since Americans aren’t members of a caste, American’s aren’t considered as fitting in, IN AMERICAN COMPANIES.

          Wake up, people. Wake up! Viktor Orban gets it so totally.

          And yes, we should (and could, if we had the resolve) deport each and every illegal we find.

          Sure.

          healthguyfsu in reply to Katy L. Stamper. | March 11, 2020 at 4:06 pm

          Katy, I hope you are in the minority because you just don’t get it regarding the future of our country and its workforce. See above where I explained this to you.

          As others have said, you will be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t favor improving legal immigration and the reason is clear. All real (and fake) economists agree that our workforce will shrink if we don’t import it. We have declining birth rates, particularly in our productive households, that don’t look to change any time soon. That does not bode well for our future economy without an influx of workers.

          Katy L. Stamper in reply to Katy L. Stamper. | March 11, 2020 at 4:34 pm

          See my note re: Viktor Orban.

          He doesn’t look at his country, see a problem, decide it’s too difficult, and wash his hands of it!

          He analyzes it, determines what contributes to the problem, and then works to implement Solutions!

          He doesn’t throw away his own people!!! He throws them a lifeline!!

          It would make your posts a little more coherent if you used quotes to separate your comments from those others. I’m not going to try to rebut everything you posted in your last comment, but there are quite a few errors and misrepresentations.

          By definition, if he favors building a wall and only letting in people who enter legally, he’s NOT in favor of illegal immigration. You can’t have it both ways. He may be in favor of higher levels of immigration than you prefer, but that isn’t the same thing.

          “”We don’t have a million more jobs than available labor.””

          I’ll let you argue that one out with BLS.

          “”Okay, but why? We did this work by Americans before.””

          This work has been done by imported labor (and domestic labor) since forever. As I pointed out, the big change was when LBJ started paying them welfare to stay in the country outside of the growing season.

          healthguyfsu in reply to Katy L. Stamper. | March 11, 2020 at 10:14 pm

          Providing a path to legal immigration is not washing one’s hands of a problem. It’s promoting one of America’s founding principles. You are ignorant of both history and economics in this case.

Maybe someone will accuse Tuberville of “bad touch” 30 years ago after he wins the run-off.

Sessions didn’t just recuse himself from Russiagate, other than some Border security, he was as bad as the rest of the swamp. Nothing about Strok and Page, Comey, Hillary, The Pakastani IT scandal, insisting on the FBI investigating the DNC hack… Things like Ukraine, the Panetta foreign agency, the Clinton Foundation…

I can excuse the recuse, and praise the bits on immigration, but can anyone name three significant wins for Session? One? Even after 10 minutes on a search engine?

    Katy L. Stamper in reply to tz. | March 11, 2020 at 2:30 pm

    Was the first Senator to endorse Trump.

    From NumbersUSA.com

    Alabama’s Republican voters had seven choices for U.S. Senator on Super Tuesday’s Primary ballot.

    Two of the candidates ran on immigration-reduction platforms, having earned career A+ NumbersUSA grades for their work in Congress: former U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (1997-2016) and current U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne (2015-2020).

    ===
    As will be true in all congressional races this year, NumbersUSA provided a Candidate Comparison page showing side-by-side assessments of where all seven Primary candidates stood on 12 issues that can affect the reduction of both illegal and legal immigration. Based on past actions and statements during the campaign, the following was the comparison at the time of Tuesday’s election:

    SESSIONS: YES for reduction on 12 issues
    TUBERVILLE: YES for reduction on 2 issues — NO on 1 issue — No Position on 9 issues

    Together, they won 56.6% of the votes on Tuesday (31.7% by Sessions and 24.9% by Byrne).

    NumbersUSA does not endorse candidacies because cast votes based on many issues and assessments about candidates’ personalities, experience, ideology and character.

    NumbersUSA, on the other hand, limits itself to assessing candidates on only one issue: Their positions on reducing or expanding annual immigration.

    On that one issue, NumbersUSA has never rated any Senator more highly than Sessions for his work in opposing immigration expansion and working toward a reduction in numbers to protect American workers and the everyday quality of life in local communities.

    Over the years, Sessions took an extraordinary 132 actions related to the numerical level of immigration. He earned a 99% immigration-reduction grade during a time when few Senators earned better than 50%.

    Sessions’ powerful and persistent voice in representing the majority of Americans on various immigration issues was a key factor in defeating the bi-partisan amnesty and immigration expansion bills of 2006, 2007 and 2013.

    https://www.numbersusa.com/blog/best-immigration-reduction-senator-our-lifetime-won-runoff-slot-regain-seat

Sessions failed is, massively, whether intentionally or by incompetenve. Either way, he’s too old to hog a senate seat.

Ride into the sunset, sessions.

OleDirtyBarrister | March 11, 2020 at 3:33 pm

I am no fan of Snuffy Sessions and though he was too old and timid to be the AG that Trump needed, but I am not so sure that the decision for the Mueller investigation is all on him. The worst thing Snuffy did with respect to the lawfare games the Dems played was that he did not do enough to forewarn Trump that he would have to recuse in certain instances due to his campaign involvement. Trump’s campaign people were in an equal position to know that as well, and they did not consider it an internalize it.

Further, Rosenstein was a Trump mistake, not a Snuffy mistake. Donnie Orange never admits to being wrong or creating self-inflicted injuries, and the info I have seen indicates that Rosenstein was Trump’s choice. When Rosenstein saw his name in print he panicked and launched a criminal investigation when a counter-intel investigation was the only appropriate one if an investigation were needed at all.

Jeff Sessions is a good man. I think President Trump should have handled this differently.

    Katy L. Stamper in reply to chzwiz007. | March 12, 2020 at 7:50 pm

    I agree with you, Jeff Sessions is a good man.

    I disagree that Pres. Trump should have handled it differently.

    Sessions has to stand on his own two feet.

    The scoundrels that Jeff Sessions gave completely free rein to, tried to depose Pres. Trump. Mr. Sessions made a disastrous decision at a historical level.

    That said, there is still no one in the Senate as anti-illegal alien and anti-wage killing immigration as Jeff Sessions.
