If you don’t stop leaking I will poke your eye out.

ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS announced a dramatic escalation in the U.S. government’s crackdown on leaks on Friday, threatening to subpoena news organizations for information about their sources even more frequently than the Obama administration.

Sessions described the Trump administration’s plans at a press conference just a day after the Washington Post published embarrassing transcripts of phone calls between Donald Trump and two foreign leaders, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Sessions said that the Justice Department was reviewing Obama-era policies that set limits on its ability to subpoena journalists.

“We respect the important role that the press plays, and will give them respect, but it is not unlimited,” said Sessions. “They cannot place lives at risk with impunity. We must balance the press’s role with protecting our national security, and the lives of those that serve in the intelligence community, the armed forces, and all law-abiding Americans.”

“The Department of Justice is explicitly threatening to haul journalists before grand juries and force them to testify about their confidential sources or face jail time,” said Peter Sterne, a senior reporter at the Freedom of the Press Foundation. “Sessions’s comments seem intended to have a chilling effect on journalism, by making reporters and their sources think twice before publishing information that the government does not like.”

So much for whistle-blower protections, you must submit to authority or face prison?

Just because rich boy got embarrassed he sends in his ‘hatchet man’ of choice as he has used him to fire Comey and Preet, now attacking the First Amendment with force.

Folks that is Fascism and we are smack dab in the middle of it right now with certified lunatics at the helm.

We could use that God in which we are supposed to trust right about now, we fucked it up, maybe he can fix it.

    Bob had this problem when I met him. It’s why he got a discharge from the Air force after only 2 years.

    What is spondylolisthesis of the lumbar spine?
    In spondylolisthesis, one of the bones in your spine — called a vertebra — slips forward and out of place. This may occur anywhere along the spine, but is most common in the lower back (lumbar spine). In some people, this causes no symptoms at all. Others may have back and leg pain that ranges from mild to severe.

    He had it fixed in 1969, 30 days in the hospital. Today they would have kicked him out in 5 days or less. It rid him of the crippling pain but now it’s back because arthritis set in, squeezing nerves in the spinal cord. That’s why he has so much pain and why his feet are swollen, his feet and legs cold and his right foot is not a drop foot. Before he got bad he could only drive with a brace on his right foot.

    Pete came over a couple hours ago, hung out w/ Bob while I FINALLY BURNED THE TRASH! We had rain a couple days ago, no wind, perfect so I did it. Holy moly, I had 27 bags. That’s the grocery store paper sacks we all used to get before they shoved plastic bags at us. I put all my recycling in the back of the SUV, collapsed all the boxes and put them in the SUV, we could hold a dance in the garage now, woo hoo!

    I even had a beer, and when I was done I had a second beer. I can’t believe the buzz I have after just two beers, sheesh. But just that time out in my beautiful park, communing w/ nature, getting an important job done, catching a buzz. Aaaaa, just what the doctor ordered. Been so stressful, taking care of Bob and although I knew it, didn’t know how much until I could catch up with something important AND enjoy being outside.

    I even went for a walk, down the drive and over to the abandoned house next door which isn’t abandoned anymore. Because it was dark I could see into the living room. Cute little lamp in the window, pictures on the wall, lamps. They’re doing a wonderful job! I couldn’t be more pleased with the new neighbors.

    Can’t wait to hit the shower. Humid today, then after schlepping all the trash out to the bonfire pit, standing in front of the first, I’m a sweaty mess. I changed the beds today. Can’t go to bed like this, lol!

    Now to get back to the bull shit news and that man! Arghhhhh…… Actually that all makes me happy. I LOVE politics.
