Speaking of Sessions his hearing is live right now on YouTube. Why isn't it stickied? This hearing is the most important political event in weeks and this sub is constantly discussing Sessions.

If literally anything belongs on the front page it's this? I'm going to be providing it in these threads because this stream is important.

Primary sources are more valuable than secondary sources, watch the hearing!

Edit: half hour recess.

Edit2 3:20PM EST: Thank you for those who messaged the mods and upvoted and responded to these comments I made in threads about Sessions, there is now a megathread up! It's more than four hours late but better than never. Unfortunately based on what happened today we may need to repeat these actions for each confirmation hearing, you can count on me being in the new queue to inform people of those streams when they happen.

I see Orrin Hatch asked the question

Isn't Utah the biggest porn consumer per capita?

When the mundane is criminal, those in power can use it selectively to jail people they don't like under the banner of Justice

Remember kids, porn is a national health crisis, but a lack of health care nationally is not.

Poor Melania and her photographic legacy...

Will she be banned from the country? Those pictures incite me to self-abuse.

I’ll let George Carlin take this one.

It's not just porn. Sessions said he’d consider using the FBI to prosecute obscenity.

From my cold, lubricated hand.

He was asking for a friend.

Would be sadly hilarious if a war on porn was the final straw for the American people.

I cannot believe that in 2017, the next Attorney General of the United States said he would prosecute obsenity.

This is an example of what the Democrars should focus on in the next 4 years, civil liberties. Combine that with worker's rights, legalizing marijuana and pro-diversity.

Sessions stated that Roe V. Wade "violated the constitution" but it's the law of the land and he'll follow it.

This is going to be a very damaging 4 (or 8) years. G.W. will look like an expert statesmen and a genius compared to the thin-skinned authoritarian megalomaniac's administration.

This is very true. I was a target for the police over a news story published about an incident that made the police force look bad and damaged their reputation.

I was pulled over dozens of times over the course of a year and had to get a lawyer to devise a plan to protect me. I fled the area and never told anybody and my neighbor's told me years later that they knocked on their door and wanted help getting search warrant for my house and if they would provide a statement that they "saw suspicious vehicles daily" it would really help them to "protect the community".

The neighbor's told the cops they hadn't seen me in months and my sister and her family now lived in the house. lol

Government has replaced the bludgeon with the court system; not out of compassion - it's far more efficient and effective than state sanctioned violence.

Yeah I was also hoping for some kind of stickied mega-threads for each of the hearings today. By the way, I really liked Frankens questions, he wasn't letting Sessions weasel his way out of the questions. Sessions seemed to be getting mad too.

Sessions said he’d consider using the FBI to prosecute obscenity

oh great we're gonna have the FBI goin after rap music again

Let's see, wars to bring back:

Porn

Marijuana

Can't do the gays yet, those fucks have the Supreme Court on their side...for now. /s

The party of small government keeping the Feds out of our lives once again.

Unless it involves what two consenting adults do in their bedroom. Or letting two consenting adults get married. Or what bathroom a person uses. Or a woman's right to choose what to do with her body. Or pornography. Or birth control.

That's how we got the war on drugs. Nixon wanted to use it to prosecute the hippies and other "undesirables". Had nothing to do with public health.

It's just a way to ultimately censor the internet. They will start with porn and get all the prude mothers and religious types on board and then they need to censor what people are saying for some moral reasons and then they need to censor everything that hasn't passed through the federal government filter first.

The GOP Platform itself calls porn a national health crisis.

Edit: Source:

Pornography, with its harmful effects, especially on children, has become a public health crisis that is destroying the lives of millions. We encourage states to continue to fight this public menace and pledge our commitment to children’s safety and well-being. —2016 Republican Party Platform, page 40

For most it probably will be, something that'll actually affect them. Anything else is 'someone else's problem lolol'.

IDK but it's a morals issue here. A rep here recently introduced a bill about porn websites being a public health threat like cigarettes IIRC. I'd google for it but I'm at work and googling "utah rep porn bill" probably wont get returns I want to see at work...

But yeah it's a thing. My friend once saw an anti porn ad in a magazine where it had a man chained to a ball that said "porn" and I've seen far too many tinder profiles with women wearing shirts that say "porn kills".

I cannot believe that in 2017, the next Attorney General of the United States said he would prosecute obsenity.

I cannot believe that in 2016 the American people elected a man who ran on a platform that said porn was a national health crisis.

That was basically a large part of the Obama campaign, following Bush.

I can't be the only person that laughed at the term "porns".

Thank goodness for that first comma.

The FCC won't let me be me.

If they ever manage to outlaw internet porn, there will be exactly one website left, and it will be called "bring back the porn."

I was just talking about something similar last night, how the Regan administration is the most corrupt ever with over 130 people being investigated, indicted or convicted. I'm wondering if the Trump administration will beat that record.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of 4chan anons suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

beat 'em now while you can.

Don't worry, it's not really about obscenity. It's about getting rid of anyone they don't like.

So ... tweeting at 3 am for people to "check-out" a (apparently non-existent) sex tape: aiding and abetting?

And he's all out of pretzels.

Sessions said he’d consider using the FBI to prosecute obscenity.

Fuck that slimeball.

First they came for the hardcore porn and I did not speak out, because I only watch amateur college girls.

So basically, our government is now a tyrannical organization with fascist flavors that only benefit the rich. Guess what comes next?

Donald is more of the hair pulling and raping type

Franken is laying into his ass right now. Fucking great...lol

I've been saying this for years:

They want the government out of their lives. They are perfectly fine with injecting it into ours.

Not even a little bit. You need look no farther than Saudi Arabia or Iran to see how this plays out. It's a tool used to oppress, distract, and stratify. If your bona fides are solid, you can watch forbidden porn, have forbidden sex, and basically do what you want... just as long as you abide by the mutual blackmail pact that's formed when an increasing number of harmless activities becomes criminalized. Support the social order and don't embarrass anyone powerful, and you can indulge quite a bit.

The ultimate perversity in these types of societies is how vociferously women will support the oppressive laws that supposedly clamp down on "unnatural" sex and sex-related activities. It's blindingly obvious to an educated outsider that these laws are of a piece with all of those other laws that ultimately end up making women second-class-citizens at best, and slaves and prisoners at worst. But they support them, because their demagogues have successfully tapped into their basest instincts: a fear that a sexually open society will leave them without any value that they can trade for resources and protection.

When it turns out it's all a scam? Well, they're too invested and too powerless for an epiphany to do them any good, so it's off to the storied land of denial and rationalization. Know what makes them feel better? Spreading the misery to the next generation.

You literally need look no farther than Trump himself. It's hilarious. He is literally what rich and powerful men are going to look like under this "no porn" regime and everything that snowballs around it.

I'm not even sure he'd have to keep any of it private. The Saudi royals are still in that primitive stage where they have to lie to their subjects and hide things from them. We're so much more advanced. We've been convinced that the laws of logic and reason are sufficiently flexible to justify any seeming hypocrisy.

Sessions will likely follow Attorney General John Ashcroft's lead and cover up the boobies on Spirit of Justice statue

American Taliban.

Trump supporters are kind of known for voting against their interests.

Imagine how many of them voted for Trump because he wants to get rid of Obamacare, then turn around and say "It won't affect me because I get my healthcare through the Affordable Care Act."

Those fuckers helped get this dumbfuck elected, I hope they're the first target for Sessions. Fuck 'em.

Edit: fucking grammar

She shall be spanked.

He just wanted to eat pretzels and shoot people in the face with shotguns.

Trump signed an anti porn pledge during the campaign.

I miss George W. He just wanted to eat pretzels and paint cats and dogs :(

No.

No no no no no

Every time we try and make elections about social issues we lose. There's no one who gives a fuck about these issues that isn't already voting Democrat.

Democratic electoral success hinges on 1 and only 1 thing. Economic populism. When we win that converstation we win the election (see 1992, 1996, 2008, 2012), when we fail to engage the working poor we lose (see 2000, 2010, 2014, 2016).

That's it. All the chatter about race issues, civil rights, and the like is just noise. What truly drives the electorate to the polls is the economy, stupid.

“The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

Can't do the gays yet, those fucks have the Supreme Court on their side...for now. /s

Don't worry, they found a way to get to us with the First Ammendment Defense Act. There's also more bathroom bills being put up around the country.

Don't look at the YouTube comments section. Don't look at the YouTube comments section. Don't look at the YouTube comments section. Don't look at the YouTube comments section. Don't look at the YouTube comments section. Don't look at the YouTube comments section.

Not Darth Cheney tho...

They try to shut me down on MTV.

Must have a lot of friends.

Because transgender people being forced to shit in the streets is a Republican value.

Sounds like it was written by someone who smoked a few marijuanas.

Since the supreme court interprets the constitution, aren't their decisions by definition constitutional?

Prosecuting obscenity

Good luck having a military. There's not a single enlisted man that I know, of any branch, that doesn't have a filthy mouth.

A question that needs asked.

"Mr. Sessions, once porn is illegal, what should the criminal punishment be for a government official who tweets 'check out her sex tape' to his millions of Twitter followers? Isn't that government official inciting his followers to break the law? If yes, what should the Attorney General do to stop that government official?"

Here's a link to the hearings on CSPAN.

It's bullshit that this isn't a stickied megathread.

shit, I'm in Canada and our conservative party (Literally: The Conservative Party of Canada) would be considered liberal when compared to the Democrats. America is waaaaaaaaayyyy right from the rest of the western world in most ways.

Am I only one who can't reach orgasm without Jeff Sessions threatening to prosecute? That's a thing, right?

The 18 year old Trumpsters won't know who to support anymore.

Which is why Sessions will be unleashed against Recreational Cannabis. Of the states that have passed legal rec laws, only one is Red, Alaska, and it's worth a paltry 3 EVs. CO, CA, OR, WA, MA, NV are all blue. So Trump will feel that he can harass the crap out of them with no potential negative consequences.

Congrats Anime Nazi's. No more Waifu Hentai for you. Hahahahaha

Congress is not the presidents administration. Since republicans have all houses on lock, it gives Trump a free pass. This will almost certainly result in more unchecked corruption but there may be no one left to investigate when it's all said and done.

And the left has moved further right along with this trend over the decades.

Right now a "moderate Midwestern democrat" is "far right" by some European standards, and my standards as well.

Before or after he recommended a sex tape?

but it feels so empty without me

Thankfully there's always Japanese porn. They are considerate enough to censor the penis so you can watch it with your kids.

This needs to be a bumper sticker/poll sign.

the craziest thing about those bathroom laws is that they are 100% vanity and political points. nobody is going to check your genitalia when you walk into a bathroom. its just pandering to a scared demographic that feels like they're losing the culture war (its over, they already lost it, years ago but whatever)

americans hold 3 things dear: our guns, our beer, and our titties. come for any of those 3 and its a civil war buddy

Yeah I mean why do you guys always have to go by his" signatures" on" binding documents" instead of what was in his heart when he signed it.

G.W. will look like an expert statesmen and a genius

This is exactly how the paradigm became so far right since Ronald Reagain. The far far far far right becomes moderate, and the pendulum slides.

And the "lesser of two evils" has been a huge factor in the phenomenon.

No, Reagan had a Democratic congress.

Then they came for the amater college girls and I did not speak out because all I do is read gay fanfics.

It is now, apparently because Ted Cruz is a creepy perv this has to be a huge issue to republicans. One funny (well not funny) thing to come out of all this is since this has become some big issue to the republicans multiple cis women who are to put it delicately, not very attractive have been harrased for going into the woman's bathroom.

I volunteer to be the first person arrested for watching porn, and taking it all the way to the Supreme Court just to hear them say than porn is a constitutional right for all Americans.

Oh come the fuck on. That's fucking ridiculous.

He'd have to try to impeach Trump for Pussygate, lest he be viewed as a giant fucking hypocrite.

shows how fucked our priorities are as a country that we don't put greater emphasis on the booty

Crazy, right-wing conservative.

I'm gonna go with gay porn.

Hahaha, does being seen as a hypocrite even matter anymore?

(black people, mostly)

Ya'll Qaeda

At least they believe in global warming.

Joking aside, forcing the porn industry underground will have horrible repercussions increasing crime rates and trafficking.

In addition to sending hundreds of actual jobs overseas.

Cascadia!!!!

The court's decision in Roe v. Wade was based on the right to privacy, which is not explicitly guaranteed by the constitution. The court determined that the right to privacy was implied by other provisions of the constitution, specifically the due process clause of the 14th amendment. This has become the dominant interpretation but from a legal perspective that prioritizes strict reading of the original text of the constitution it could be seen as shaky or baseless.

Trump by himself could be worth 130 corruption investigations.

So, are we just carting out all the already decided things from the last 50 years to destroy? Is that it?

Al' Abama

Calexit wouldn't be in the best interest of America.

But it could be in the best interest of California if America continues to make choices that aren't in America's best interest...

That's the point. Reagan's administration had investigated corruption, but the Rs will ignore anything tRump's administration does

"Why can't they just let me pee?" - R Kelly

I'll give you my porn when you pry it from my warm, sticky hands!

That's basically what they've done in China, though not as mundane. Everyone is corrupt, so instead of taking measures to truly fix the system they can just selectively prosecute whomever Comrade Xi finds intolerable.

Internet porn brought us video, live casting and if you go way back, chatrooms and comment sections, arguably. Will they see these things as unfit as well? Will they shut down Twitter? Do these old nutfucks truly understand the internet? Should we start calling anything that is done on a computer cyber now? I wish these ancient relects who "won fair and square" would be more concerned about how much shit is in their diapers and who's going to change it that something that has been totally automatic since the beginning of time.

Do you want Calexit? Because that's how you get Calexit.

"Destroying the lives of millions"

Who's life has been destroyed by porn?

What does that even mean.
