“10 Minutes Closer to Freedom” U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions doesn’t like nullification. He attacked the principles in recent statements about California’s sanctuary state policies. In doing so, he sounded just like Rachel Maddow. In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I talk about it. I compare the ideas of Maddow and Sessions (there’s […]
