Putin has been playing the Christian-right for years. Has he read my warnings about them on this blog, and saw a opening? Putin has been making laws banning homosexuals, who the evangelicals see as their No.1 Enemy. Sessions is the Anti-Gay Crusader in the U.S. How about Russia?
Bannon says he brought Sessions into the Trump campaign that was running on Anti-Immigration. Did Steve want Jeff as the poster boy of Gay Bashers in order to send a signal to evangelical voters – who went to the poles as never before! This includes Black evangelical who hate LGBT folks – too!
But, what if Sessions approached Trump – directly? And, he was encouraged by Russian evangelicals? This is Trump’s hidden platform, a Gay Bashing Alliance with Russia mixed with Trillion’s of dollars in business deals. Jeff tells Bannon Trump shares his values. This is why he and evangelical leaders overlook Trumps heterosexual sins. Hillary is the leader of the Fag Conspiracy to overthrow THE WEST. Imagine if the movie ‘Black Panther’ was full of Fags and Lesbians – only!
This is a Covert Crusade that has used ISIS. If nothing makes sense in a secular way, look to Christian leaders – in sheep’s clothing. I believe Mueller is going to Indict Jeff very soon. He has chummed the waters of confusion and prepared to drop the answer to the riddle in our laps. Right-wing groups are calling for pardons to stop the truth from arriving.
Over the weekend, the New York Times reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions personally intervened to dispatch a federal hate crimes lawyer to prosecute a man in Iowa who has been charged with the murder of a transgender high school student. The newspaper characterized the move by Sessions as an effort to defy his anti-civil rights image.
But, please, don’t be fooled.
Putin noted the role of the Russian Orthodox Church “in matters of education and charity, strengthening the moral foundations of society and the education of the younger generation.”
The president also commended Patriarch Kirill on the holiday, noting his role as the head of the Russian Orthodox Church in the public life of the country. This year’s Easter celebrations did not “bypass” Russian soldiers in Syria. On Easter Eve a festive mass took place in one of the Syrian makeshift temples close to the Russian airbase. This is the first time that a Russian Orthodox Church bell chimed on Syrian soil to celebrate Christ’s resurrection.
From the moment he was confirmed as attorney general of the United States, Sessions has been the driving force behind the Trump administration’s attacks on basic dignity and equality for LGBT people.
Who’s ‘godless’ now? Russia says it’s U.S.
Putin seizes on issue of traditional values
MOSCOW — At the height of the Cold War, it was common for American conservatives to label the officially atheist Soviet Union a “godless nation.”
More than two decades on, history has come full circle, as the Kremlin and its allies in the Russian Orthodox Church hurl the same allegation at the West.

“Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a recent keynote speech. “Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation.”
In his state of the nation address in mid-December, Mr. Putin also portrayed Russia as a staunch defender of “traditional values” against what he depicted as the morally bankrupt West. Social and religious conservatism, the former KGB officer insisted, is the only way to prevent the world from slipping into “chaotic darkness.”
As part of this defense of “Christian values,” Russia has adopted a law banning “homosexual propaganda” and another that makes it a criminal offense to “insult” the religious sensibilities of believers.
White House chief strategist Steve Bannon helped convince Attorney General Jeff Sessions to endorse Donald Trump in the 2016 election despite Sessions’ worries that the endorsement could be the end of his political career, a new book revealed.
As Joshua Green wrote in “Devil’s Bargain,” Sessions, then a senator from Alabama, was unsure if Trump could secure the Republican nomination, and knew that being the first senator to endorse Trump could further curtail his political future if Trump, the Republican frontrunner at the time, lost.
The day before Sessions endorsed Trump at a Madison, Alabama rally in February 2016, then-Breitbart News chairman Bannon told Sessions that it was “do or die” time and that “this is the moment” to endorse.
“Trump is a great advocate for our ideas,” Sessions told Bannon. “But can he win?”
Conservative advocacy groups have renewed calls for President Donald Trump to pardon those implicated in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, citing allegations of partisan sabotage.
The push comes as the Mueller inquiry notches important victories. A grand jury in Washington, D.C., issued sweeping indictments against 13 Russian nationals for interference operations on Friday. The Los Angeles Times reported just two days later that former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates has agreed to cooperate with the special counsel.
Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a government oversight group, said the president should seriously consider clemency for his associates given the alleged anti-Trump bias of Justice Department investigators. Several lawyers who joined Mueller’s team have donated to Democratic candidates, while FBI agents assessing Russian sabotage efforts regularly traded texts attacking Trump’s candidacy.

“The whole super structure of the Russia investigation is compromised,” Fitton told Politico. “Those caught up in it deserve some protection. Rather than just let the virus run its course, it’d be appropriate for the president to consider pardons for people who are caught up in the prosecution.”
Frederick Fleitz of the Center for Security Policy and Larry Klayman, a prodigious conservative litigator, expressed similar sentiments.
There is not yet evidence that the alleged bias affected the substance of the investigations.
The comments appeared just one day after the LAT reported that Gates will plead guilty to fraud-related charges in exchange for a reduced sentence. He is expected to cooperate with the special counsel’s case against Paul Manafort, the deposed Trump campaign manager facing 12 criminal charges ranging from money laundering to violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
Unnamed sources close to the process say the deal is somewhat informal — the agreement does not yet exist in writing and Mueller’s team has not been specific as to possible
