Johnson tried to physically intimidate people but the real club was appropriations or threatening to not support re-election...that is how it works, sadly.

I think it is fair to say the majority of the people of Arkansas did not ASK JFK to send the 82nd.

Obama retaliated against Arizona for making him look bad on immigration. The Obama EEOC even retaliated against Boeing for daring to open a plant in a right to work state. There are hundreds of examples.

Trump did already threaten the renegade GOP senators about the re-election. But did LBJ threaten the states of the Dixiecrat legislators with any negative consequences if the legislators did not comply?

To me this is much worse, and telling about the Presidents attitude towards democracy. :twisted:

MAGAIT.

It's amazing how a nitwit like you thinks he knows everything about the US.

The Feds do all kinds of things to enforce laws, including withholding federal funds. Withholding federal funds to coerce states into complying with Federal law was found to be constitutional by the Supreme Court in 1987.

LBJ is a poor example of a President to be protecting, nerdo. He got us into the Vietnam mess and is also famous for saying:

Quote:
"I'll have those niggers voting Democratic for 200 years."

So what Federal law is now violated in Alaska? :roll:

Alaska, like all states, receive all kinds of benefits from the Federal government. In this case, the 2 Republican senators voted against the repealing and replacing Obamacare, but at the same time want the Trump administration to help their state on issues where Federal Law takes primacy:

Quote:
Efforts and issues on the line include nominations of Alaskans to Interior posts, an effort to build a road out of King Cove through the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge, and future opportunities to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and expand drilling in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, among other regulatory issues that are a priority for Murkowski and Sullivan.


The Donald just put them on notice that if they aren't prepared to help him, he isn't prepared to help them.

Oh, look, Loretta Lynch used email aliases of official DOJ emails as the AG..especially when talking about the tarmac meeting with Bill.

Good thing she wasn't trying to hide anything, eh?

Holder went by "Lew Alcindor". Even Lois "the Cunt" Lerner had an alias.

Lynch used email alias 'Elizabeth Carlisle' to write about Clinton tarmac meeting

DOJ releases hundreds of emails on Clinton, Lynch meeting


Loretta Lynch used the alias “Elizabeth Carlisle” for official emails as attorney general, including those related to her infamous tarmac meeting last summer with former President Clinton.





The emails were included in 413 pages of Justice Department documents provided to conservative watchdog groups Judicial Watch and American Center for Law and Justice.

Top federal officials using email aliases is not illegal or new, considering others in the former Obama administration also used them, arguing security concerns and spam to their official email addresses swamping their in-boxes.

Eric Holder, Lynch’s predecessor, used “Lew Alcindor,” the former name of retired NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

However, critics of the practice argue that such aliases can result in some requested emails to and from officials going undetected.

Lynch used the alias to help craft responses to media requests about the meeting, the documents show.



And former IRS official Lois Lerner, who was at the center of the agency’s targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, also used an alias -- Toby Miles.

Internet sleuths say Elizabeth Carlisle is the birth name of Lynch’s maternal grandmother. But an actress who has done a number of sultry roles -- including “prostitute” and “tipsy” -- also has that name.

The Lynch documents were provided to the groups in connection with lawsuits seeking information about the June 27, 2016, meeting on the tarmac of a Phoenix airport.

The meeting came amid an FBI investigation into whether Clinton’s wife, then the Democratic presidential nominee, had revealed classified information when using private email servers while secretary of state.

About a week later, FBI Director James Comey concluded the case by saying Clinton was “extremely careless,” but recommended the Justice Department not pursue criminal charges.

In Senate testimony earlier this year, Comey said the meeting was a "deciding factor" in his decision to act alone to update the public on the investigation.

He also said Lynch had directed him to call the investigation “a matter,” which “confused” him.

The former president left his private plane and boarded Lynch’s uninvited. Lynch said in the aftermath that they talked about grandchildren and other matters, but that the investigation was not discussed.

However, Lynch later said she “regrets” having allowed the meeting.

Lynch’s attorney Robert Raben on Monday told The Daily Caller that Justice Department staffers who process Freedom of Information Act requests are aware of the alias.

He also said the agency acknowledged in February 2016 that Lynch was using the Elizabeth Carlisle alias.

Why does the UN Ambassador submit HUNDREDS of requests to know the names of US citizens swept up in surveillance?

I'll tell you why..she was an Obama groupie before 2008 and she was trying to get Hildabeast elected to preserve Hussein's "legacy"

Unmasking Samantha Power


The House committee has not identified the Trump people who were unmasked. Nor has it identified the “one official” who made those hundreds of requests. But it’s pretty obvious this was Samantha Power, Barack Obama’s ambassador to the United Nations. In May the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed the unmasking requests from Ms. Power, former CIA director John Brennan and former National Security Adviser Susan Rice.

Ms. Power is the only one of those three whose job had no clear intelligence-related function. The plot got even thicker when the committee asked for the same unmasking records for Ben Rhodes. He was the hyper-political Obama Deputy National Security Adviser who last year gleefully boasted to the New York Times how he’d manipulated reporters to sell Mr. Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.
