AG Jeff Sessions at his confirmation hearing.

The numerous federal investigations into troubled police departments under the Obama administration may be a thing of the past.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Tuesday that the federal government won’t be monitoring police departments as it had in the past.
Sessions claimed in his first speech as attorney general that the Justice Department investigations undermined police efforts nationwide.
“We need, so far as we can, in my view, help police departments get better, not diminish their effectiveness,” Sessions told the National Association of Attorneys General. “And I’m afraid we’ve done some of that. So we’re going to try to pull back on this, and I don’t think it’s wrong or mean or insensitive to civil rights or human rights.”
He added that the Trump administration is working “out of a concern to make the lives of people in particularly the poor communities, minority communities, live a safer, happier life so that they’re able to have their children outside and go to school in safety and they can go to the grocery store in safety and not be accosted by drug dealers and get caught in crossfires or have their children seduced into some gang.”
Sessions claimed that monitoring police departments did not help combat rising violence in some cities.
“One of the big things out there that’s, I think, causing trouble and where you see the greatest increase in violence and murders in cities is somehow, some way, we undermine the respect for our police and made, oftentimes, their job more difficult,” he said.
Jeff Sessions discusses his communication with Russians.
By Steve Neavling
Attorney General Jeff Sessions acknowledged today that he met with Russian officials at least twice during the Donald Trump campaign, but insisted the election was never discussed.
During a press conference at 4 p.m., Sessions also said he plans to recuse himself from future investigations into the Trump campaign after consulting with Justice Department staff.
“I have decided to recuse myself from any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for President of the United States,” Sessions said.
The attorney general insisted he didn’t commit perjury by denying he had communication with Russian officials during his confirmation hearing, saying the meetings were unrelated to the presidential campaign.
Reports that suggested he exchanged information with the Russians, Sessions said, are “totally false.”
Sessions said he was having trouble remembering details of the discussions with a Russian ambassador.
“I don’t remember a lot of it,” Sessions said.

The Department of Justice says until his arrest on Nov. 9, 2015, Moore worked in the Secret Service-Uniformed Division and was assigned to the White House.
In Moore’s guilty plea, he admits to using a profile on the social media app “Meet24.” That’s where he began a two-month chat relationship with a 14-year-old girl in which some electronic conversation turned sexual. Moore sent the girl sexually explicit images of himself.
But Moore really was chatting and sexting with Delaware State Police detectives and members of the Delaware Child Predator Task Force. After they arrested Moore, he admitted to trading sexually explicit images with a minor in Florida, a 17 year old in Missouri and a 14 year old in Texas.
One “National Emergency” Away From Disaster 3 of 4
March 2, 2017Uncategorized
You think it could never happen in America that D.Trump could shut down the media he deems hostile and suspend our Constitutional rights. But it has happened in the past and it happened under more than one president.
President Adams in 1798 in response to a French threat had his Alien and Sedition Acts. One Federalist in Congress declared, there was no need to “invite hordes of Wild Irishmen, nor the turbulent and disorderly of all the world, to come here with a basic view to distract our tranquility.” It was described as: “No protesting the government? No immigrants allowed in? No freedom of the press. Lawmakers jailed? ”
President Lincoln: “On April 27, 1861, President Lincoln, fearful that Southern troops might overtake the capital, suspended the writ of habeas corpus and declared martial law in Maryland. . . . On May 26, 1861, Chief Justice Roger Taney, sitting circuit, ruled that Lincoln had acted unconstitutionally — only Congress could suspend the Great Writ. Lincoln ignored the order and continued to seize and hold adversaries without a hearing”

The shooting of an unarmed woman holding her baby in Ruby Ridge, Idaho, in 1992 continues to follow San Diego County sheriff Bill Gore around and that goes for social media sites. Gore, according to a federal lawsuit, continues to dodge questions about the day’s events.
On October 27, Dimitrios Karras filed a federal complaint alleging that Sheriff Gore and his staff deleted comments he posted to the sheriff department's Facebook page, thus violating his right to free speech.
Karras posted his comment on September 2, 2014. It read:
"Sheriff Gore: Do you plead the 5th about your involvement in the MURDER of an unarmed woman who was holding her baby? REMEMBER RUBY RIDGE.”
Within an hour, the comment was removed and Karras was informed that he was not allowed to post any more comments on to the sheriff's Facebook fan page.
More than 22 years have elapsed since the FBI standoff at Randy Weaver's cabin in Ruby Ridge. At the time, Gore served as the bureau chief in Seattle, the lead office in charge of the standoff. Weaver, a white separatist facing gun charges, was holed up in the cabin along with his wife Vicki, infant daughter, and a man named Kevin Harrison.
Days before the seige, a gun battle occurred between FBI agent Michael Degan and Weaver, Harrison, and Weaver's 14-year-old son Sammy as they walked in the woods near the cabin. Weaver's son along with agent Degan were killed during the shootout. The men retreated back to the cabin where they stayed while agents surrounded the cabin.
The next day, Weaver and Harrison tried to leave to find a burial place for the deceased boy. During another shootout that ensued, Weaver's wife Vicki was shot and killed while holding her baby daughter. The men later surrendered. The FBI soon came under scrutiny for the tactics used and the murder of an unarmed woman. Gore denied that he gave the shooter the green light. He refused to testify at a congressional hearing.
Two decades later, people such as Karras still want an answer from Gore; Facebook proved to be no means of
