1. Just an FYI. If u have noticed I tried to keep out of the Trump/Sessions debates as much as possible. There was evidence for each side of the argument and no one could 100% prove their side was correct. I tend to take Trump at his word and he was pretty clear on the subject.
2. Most people didn't understand the level of his recusal. Sessions just didn't recuse himself of anything to deal with Russian but anything that came up during the 2016 campaign. Depending on how he defined that to himself that could include anything to do with well anything.
3.Sessions sought to be a bubble AG. Where his responsibilities for upholding the law started the day of his appointment and anything that happened before was not his concern.
4. Now all of that being said, I was honest enough to accept that the Trump/Sessions dance could have all been a play by the two to give him cover to investigate behind the scenes. Yet as the events unfolded it looked increasingly unlikely.
5. I decided to continue to avoid the argument as much as possible because I understood it divides Trump's base and was a useless argument because it would be answered for us by either Trump firing his ass or Sessions arresting people afrer the the midterms.
6. Personally, I leaned towards taking Trump at his word. He does play 3d chess a lot but if u watch and listen to him, he often tells you what his moves will be before he does them. It just happens the media/Dems pretend to not understand what he is saying most times.
7. So now the move has been made. Sessions has been fired. Those that pushed the theory that his recusal was not a grand scheme to drain the swamp are proven correct. Those that said it was were wrong.
8. It's a hallmark of intelligence that when you are given new information, you process that new information into your theories and rethink those theories. There is nothing bad about being wrong or making bad assumptions based on incomplete data.
9. The problem comes when given new information that contradicts your original theory you continue to push your theory without making corrections. The new data point is Trump fired Sessions. Everything else now flows from that beginning data point.
10. Before all this began I liked Sessions, I still like his actions on illegal immigration and the vast majority of his moves as AG. I still think he is a good guy. He isn't evil in other words. He just showed that when it comes to justice he had problems arresting his friends.
11. For whatever reason, he decided, instead of being faced with the hard choice of either arresting his friends or protecting them, to remove himself from that possiblity by recusal. It is now shown beyond doubt he made the wrong decision and it cost him his job.
12. It serves no purpose to continue to push the theory it was all a grand scheme to drain the swamp. Outside of it being used as a warning to be careful of becoming deeply wedded to a theory which can't be proven 100% with available data it also serves no purpose to slam....
13. ...those that did believe the theory. From an intellectual side, I enjoyed listening to both sides of the argument and put my 2 cents in on the matter from time to time. It was an interesting debate. Who doesn't love a good debate every once in a while, right?
14. However, I grew tired of it when people began to invest so much emotion over something that they ultimately had no ability to impact. Trump and Sessions were the only ones that had the power to end the debate by their actions. Trump ended the debate yesterday.
15. When it got to the point that Trump supporters where doing something the media and left had been unable to do and actually divide us into separate camps that attacked each other, I took a step back and simply refused to take sides on something that couldn't be known 100%
16. Its a shame that something like this that should have been nothing more than an interesting debate took on such an emotional charged atmosphere and people went to Twitter war over it.
17. So the debate is ended by Trump's action. Sessions was not involved in a top secret effort to take down the swamp. He was just a man who when faced with a very hard choice decided the best course was to not make a choice and that decision cost him his job.
18. The lesson, if any, people should learn from this should be to not become emotionally invested in pet theories that can't be proven or disproven and that have evidence for both sides of the arguments. Debate and discussion are fun. Twitter wars aren't.
19. Having said all that what's the new shiny theory going around?.......
