Senator Lindsey Graham Pushes Back Barr Committee Vote by One Week….

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham announced today the postponement of the committee vote on nomination of William Barr for Attorney General by one week, after democrats requested a delay.

Generally, no big deal. Normally, the opposition democrats can call for a week delay. Typically, this stuff happens all the time and is one of those procedural issues no-one pays attention to. However…

Because the spidey-sense political radar is monitoring DC closely; it just so happens that we stood back, looked at the political calendar last night; and predicted this.  Check out the alignment of the political planets for next week:

♦On Tuesday Feb 5th, President Trump is now scheduled to deliver his State of the Union address.  There is absolutely NO DOUBT before Pelosi invited Trump, the democrats have pre-planned something around the event.

♦On Friday Feb 8th, AAG Matt Whitaker is scheduled to appear in front of the most Machiavellian political mind inside the Democrat apparatus, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (aka “The Penguin”).

Knowing those two dates(Tue-5th, Fri-8th); and knowing how Team Mueller always frame their timing of announcements to deliver maximum presidential diminishment; and accepting the resistance landscape so far; wouldn’t it be serendipitous for them if Mueller announced a report to the DOJ on either Monday the 4th, or Wednesday, February 6th?

The scheming resistance is chomping at the bit to fight the DOJ to get full control of the raw material inside the Mueller/Weissmann report without the filter of William Barr. {Go Deep}  This is a public fight they have undoubtedly planned for.

With Nadler and crew pre-positioned on Friday 8th to begin demanding AAG Whitaker provide direct and unadulterated access to the full Mueller report content.  It would make sense to erase the media coverage of the SOU and kick off the resistance charge with a leak to media of the Mueller report on Tuesday 6th.

Following this scheme…. If the UniParty could simultaneously delay Barr’s nomination vote until after this fight begins the Democrats would have a stronger DC landscape for their public arguments.  Additionally, the fight over making the Mueller/Weissmann report become public provides cover for all Democrats to vote against Bill Barr.

Remember, all of this is building toward one goal.

But, if that was the general plan, an interim delay would be needed.

Coincidentally, something exactly like THIS:

WASHINGTON – Senate Democrats forced a one-week delay Tuesday in the Judiciary Committee vote on William Barr’s nomination to become attorney general so they could gather more information about how he planned to oversee the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The chairman, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Democrats’ had legitimate questions about whether Barr’s broad views of presidential power would lead to his keeping parts of special counsel Robert Mueller’s anticipated final report secret.

The delay is relatively routine for nominees and Graham still expects Barr to be confirmed.  (read more)

      I happen to believe Trump a much bigger existential threat to establishment Republicans than to Democrats and that’s why you see this playing out.
      Also think about why AAG Whitakher would authorize Roger Stone brutal arrest?

            I agree with you dawg. Even if Whitaker authorized the arrest, there is no reason to believe he authorized a Zero Dark Thirty AM, 29-person SWAT team attack, as though Stone were the 9/11 Mastermind or they were busting the biggest heroin/fentanyl/cocaine/meth ring in Florida.

            Stone is accused of process crimes that normally result in community service for people who have no prior criminal records. The preliminary-hearing judge did NOT order $250,000 bail, he let Stone sign a $250,000 surety bond contract, so that if Stone failed to appear (e.g. send his lawyers to appear) at future hearings, Stone voluntarily agreed that the Court could fine him and order asset seizures, such as bank accounts or his house. Essentially, Stone was released on his own recognizance with no money paid by him to be released.

            As FBI Director, Christopher Wray might have been briefed on the actual arrest-operation details, since the FBI conducted the raid. But not necessarily. He could have given the arrest order to FBI’s So. Florida office, and the local SAIC devised the details

            OTOH, what I wonder is, is the narrative wrong? Could our President have ORCHESTRATED this debacle? Could Roger Stone have agreed to participate?

            Look at the “optics”. The FBI terrorized two senior citizens who posed no physical threat to anybody. CNN was alerted to broadcast the incident to millions of people.

            One take-home lesson to viewers may be, “Big Brother is ruling You,”Give Up,” and everybody cowers. But another lesson is, “Big Brother is Gestapo / KGB, stop this government terrorism,” and people reject the terrorism.

            How does Trump take down the Deep State and MSM? Showing America in-your-face Deep State misconduct with MSM collusion could be one of a well-orchestrated symphony of effective measures, no?

            Stone is smart and experienced in the ways of D.C. His nuts could be in the cracker–or he may be in the catbird’s seat. If I were advising him, I’d urge his attorneys to petition the court for a change of venue from D.C. to the Eastern District of Virginia, or some place where Trump got a decent percentage of votes.

So if it was planned out by the bad guys, they’re even stupider than I thought. Other than the mouth-breathers I’ve seen here and there online drooling over how it went down, almost everyone else seem to know how wrong it was. “Gestapo tactics” is the most common phrase I’ve heard, and not just from Trump supporters.

        Interesting. I made a similar observation today when reading about the NY dems calling for a primary run against Alexandria Ocassional Cortex. Might the attacks on her from establishment Dems be what awaken the average Democrat to the existence of the UNIPARTY?

        As you say, President Trump has exposed that fact to the right. His mere existence has caused most the Republicans to reveal their true selves.

        Of the elected officials in our government, there is the 5-10% on the far left, the 5-10% on the far right, and the 80-90% in the “middle” that is the UNIPARTY and controls everything.

          OTOh, it is possible that Sandy has been selected to be the face of the New Democrat Party, and no challenge will be allowed.

          She beat high-ranking Baby Boomer Joe Crowley. It has been reported that he was redistricted under an assumption that his reelection would be “automatic”. But the new district was populated by 50% Puerto Ricans, and only 18% White-Non-Hispanics. Sandy reportedly decided on her own to run for office, and campaigned door-to-door, speaking Spanish, while Joe sat in D.C.. The result was, in the primary, with over 300,000 potential voters, only 16,000 made an effort to vote (~5% voter turnout) and Sandy beat Joe, 11,000 to 5,0000.

          What if the reality was the redistricting was intentional, and dumb-ditz barmaid Sandy was picked and sent out to stealthily capture the seat?

          Unless the Dems reconfigure her district, her next election looks inevitable. And THEN, in Nov. 2024, she will be 35 years old, and eligible to run for President, or Vice-President.

So, in the background, he will be damaging Trump every chance he gets.

          Yes, I loved Barr’s replies to questions like that. He’s following the law! Unlike Comey who listed Hillary’s crimes, then said no reasonable prosecutor would indict her. So his whole speech was illegal since they didn’t press charges. Now “we the people” want to indict her crimes because he violated the law disclosing them. All because he thought she would be President. What’s amazing is that he was never held accountable because she wasn’t supposed to lose.

      Yeah, I can’t answer Barr vs Whittaker. Of course we certainly don’t what Rosenstein in charge of releasing Muellers’ report.

      But I’m afraid I have to agree with Sundance’s laying out of the time frame

      They’re going for the kill now. The ox has been gored (more below) and they’re closing in with the steely knives.

      By “ox has been gored”, I mean to say that it appears many, many forces think PresTrump has been weakened enough that they can take him on and go for the kill now.

      – An intelligence briefing today on military threats to paint Pres unwise to pull out of Syria

      – McConnell will introduce a bill to prevent Pres from withdrawing military (no link, heard it on the news), publicly going against the President

      – McConnel doing the least-most possible to assist Pres with his initiatives

      – Graham acceeding to the delay in Barr vote

      – I think Sundance is right about Feb 6 – it’ll be a blockbuster to wholly deflate any wall momentum Pres will have built the night before in the SOU

      I’ve got no great insight to these events, but I think I’m seeing a general sense among the opposition that PresTrump can be taken on and defeated.

      The constant drumbeat of many of his own senior officials disagreeing and criticizing him has fostered a widespread impression that he’s now the weakened ox.

      Let’s hope he’s got some countermeasures. Actually, let’s pray he does.

            What he did was to demonstrate to the American people that Pelosi is an incompetent, petulant “leader” who is totally unwilling to negotiate and compromise. He is now giving Nancy one final chance to grow up and relent.

            I support Rud Istvan’s insightful commentary re 10 USC Section 284. This law, passed by Congress and signed by Barry 0. in 2016 authorizes the DOD to build border-area roads, fences and other infrastructure to combat drug-shipments and other organized crime, if requested by any federal, state, tribal or local law enforcement agency, with the endorsement of the Secretary of State.

            No Congressional authorization nor National Emergency declaration is necessary.

            If the fence is constructed in New Mexico or Texas, any lawsuit would have to be adjudicated in the 10th or 5th Circuit courts. It would be outside the jurisdiction of the 9th Circuit (Cali and AZ).

            This may be why Trump has recently emphasized drug trafficking and human trafficking. His talk about declaring a National Emergency may be clever misdirection.

            “Is there now fear that the Rs have a problem with Barr?”

            I don’t know enough to speculate, but I think it’s becoming more and more clear that many Rs are not supporting the President.

            The main point of my initial comment was not that President Trump is weakened, but that there’s an increasing perception among Dems that he is.

            To the extent that spashes over to Rs, that’s a bad thing.

            If more and more Rs adopt that same view, there’s less and less support for the President when it comes to crucial tests like impeachment.

            A typical Trump supporter view of impeachment is that it’ll fail in the Senate due to not enough Rs voting to impeach.

            As time’s gone on, how has our confidence about that held up?

            My confidence on that hasn’t.

            I’ve seen more and more Rs, Generals, heads of gummint agencies willing to go against the President in public forums.

            The more that happens, the more it strengthens public perception that the President is out of touch, wrong on issues such as Syria, yada yada – on and on.

            Sure, we know Dems desperately want to get rid of PresTrump.

            But more and more I’m concerned we may be nearing a critical threshold of Rs wanting to get rid of the Pres. The more the Pres can be painted as out of touch, the more cover that provides them to cooperate in impeachment.

            Look at the military intelligence hearing today. Almost entirely painting PresTrump as being at odds with “the experts”.

            Again, I’m not saying PresTrump is weakened. I’m saying there’s an increasing perception that he is.

            And that can foster more enemies jumping on that bandwagon and deciding that now’s the time to take him down.

            That’s no great revelation, just a small observation about the risk in recent attitude-drift that occurred to me so I voiced it.

    Obviously he is a thinking, experienced AG, as shown with his 18 page opinion on the Mueller investigation, as it relates to a charge of : ‘obstruction of justice’.
    Until I see otherwise, I’m going with Barr being on top of the situation and ready to play hard ball with Mueller, his team and the Dems; “according to the book”..

    As an aside, I really do not believe that President Trump is so lost, out of touch, disorganized, and unable to strategize his every move against the deep state; as some around here constantly infer.

        PT was snowed by false RINO advisors(including attys). Starting with RENCE and still has a few there now like FLOOD and KUSHNER. The most dangerous being KUSHNER. Someone please tell Trump not to trust someone whose whole family voted for CLINTON.

        Even Conway is suspect because of her wacky husband. I used to love Conway but I do not like reading stuff about her husband or rumors about how she has badmouthed the President behind his back.

        As for Bolton he was a known entity. Trust me, he is being used as an attack dog if people do not fly right. Trump likes the tension he brings. At least he is loyal to the country. Trump will never listen to him because he is a one trick pony.
        People I do trust:
        1. Sarah Huckabee and her father.
        2. Stephen Miller.
        3. Mike Pompeo.
        4. Donald Trump Jr.
        Ivanka is not on the list as she is a 5th Ave Liberal that could not see(along with her husband) the importance of getting us out of the Paris Climate Accord and the other agreements that would have sucked TRILLIONS out of the American economy. Thank god Trump did not listen to her. We are not the piggy bank of the world.
        She did sponsor some nice programs though. On that note I will give her kudos.

      I agree. You must appear weak before you act strong is the maxim. I feel that Trump has been very careful about using the power he has because he respects the office of the President so much and our Constitution. There is no way Trump will allow these folks to go too far. Graham is a TRAITOR. I never trusted him, Ryan or McConnell. THEY ARE ALL TRAITORS TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. As we see, the RINO chickens are coming home to roost.
      Still too many of them around Congress these days. Can’t anyone in power in the GOP stand for anything these days and support our President other than to assist his ENEMIES? DAMN THEM!!!!!!!!!

      Trump is handling things at optimum capacity. He is in a tough spot, thanks to Sessions, and his fellow Republicans not standing behind him. But, any other president would have either folded by now or became deep state. Trump has done neither, He continues to fight and fight well. No one should expect this to be an easy journey. And, the end result is still up in the air. But, without Trump it would be over.

    IMHO, this is why PDJT should’ve blown off Pelosi and given his speech from the Senate. Every delay allows the demonrats further time to plan dirty tricks (e.g. the Kavanaugh hearings). My guess is the demonrats are prepping another Ballsey Ford to accuse Barr of some inappropriate activity.

    As for the Mueller inquisition, I don’t think they want it to end until PDJT is out of office. They have nothing on him (because nothing wrong was done!), so the best thing for the demonrats is to keep the hoax going. Of course, making up false allegations in the final Mueller report is posible as well. Lying is something they do quite well.

    The Dems do not care about Barr. He is already bought and paid for. He is Muellers friend. They are close. Nothing will happen there, the problem is that Whitaker is now officially on ice like Sessions. Wray is corrupt and buying his time before Trump fires him. Barr does not give a damn about the rule of law. I have no trust in Barr. ZERO. DiGenova’s support notwithstanding. Barr will protect the institution OVER the rule of law. And THAT IS THE PROBLEM!!!!

    Stone’s case is going to take one year to try in the DC Fed Circuit. One year. That means Mueller will be around during the 2020 debates!

    This is why Clinton is considering running. As long as she has Mueller keeping tabs on the President, she is in the clear.

      What I will take from all this no matter what happens is: Its a big club and we aint in it. Its all about globalism, the Uniparty, corruption in the elite class, shuffling money from one country’s citizens to another country’s leaders, and vice versa.

    “[…] questions about whether Barr’s broad views of presidential power would lead to his keeping parts of special counsel Robert Mueller’s anticipated final report secret”

    Lots of secrets to go around. I say:

    1.) We already know Mueller’s report will be filled with innuendo, speculation, guilt by association, blah blah

    2.) We already know Mueller’s report will be leaked to the press — at least the “important” bits — within 300 milliseconds of its delivery to Whitaker. If not 300 milliseconds before that. Probably before.

    3.) Team Trump has already been working on “the rebuttal” — can’t imagine Mueller brings up something Team Trump isn’t already aware of. You know… Russia ‘n stuff. Also… obstruction ‘n stuff.

    If you think about it: is there really anything to hide? Don’t we want Team Trump’s IMMEDIATE response front and center anyway? Everything right out there in the spotlight?

    Think of it this way: let’s say Whitaker/Barr try to keep The Report under wraps. It’s gonna get out ANYWAY. And it’ll be drip drip CNN drip drop Schiff derpity derp for weeks. Talk about Bad Optics. That’s worse than just releasing the report and INSTANTANEOUSLY TEARING IT DOWN. Assuming Team Trump is in a position to tear it down, and I believe they are. There’s no rumor about what is or is not in the report wafting about the MSM Cable Airwaves like a stale fart. There’s no “sources have said” and all that other D.C. bullcrap nonsense that the MSM makes their money from.

    And if the Team Trump response is indeed EFFECTIVE — which it damn well better be regardless of whether the report is ever released in full — then the Team Trump response is likewise immediately EFFECTIVE against the Dems strategy wrt. utilizing the contents of the report. The sooner you defend against and delegitimize the content of the report, the less face value the content of the report holds.

    Oh… and we haven’t even talked about Declassification. Uh oh. I said the naughty word.

    Let’s say Mueller/Dems capture the headlines for a full week. Trump Tweets on Monday morning of the following week: “Ok! Now that Mueller has given us his report, we can focus on DECLASSIFICATION!” All he has to do is mention it.

    Remember: we live in Trump Weeks now. You start the week on Monday. And by Friday you don’t even remember anything before about Wednesday. Good luck, Dems. That’s all I gotsta say.

Barr might appoint a second SC. Graham is wrapped up in the declassification web. His name might be one of those that conspired to spy on the Trump campaign. We already know that McCain played a role.

    I don’t care, and personally speaking I don’t think the country cares about Graham’s foibles, if they are legal. But it seems to me as if the man has something to hide.

    AS WHITTAKER TOLD US: “MUELLER WILL BE RELEASING HIS REPORT VERY SOON. I THINK.”
    BUT NOT IN TIME FOR THE ORIGINAL SOTU SPEECH 01/19/19 – TONIGHT.
    THEY DELAYED BARR’S CONFIRMATION VOTE BECAUSE THEY HAD TO DELAY
    THE SOTU ADDRESS, BECAUSE, VERY LIKELY, PELOSI WILL BE RELEASING MUELLER’S REPORT ON FEB. 5TH AS THE PRESIDENT IS WALKING IN.

    WILL PELOSI GREET TRUMP WITH IMPEACHMENT CHARGES?
    WILL SHE HAVE FEDERAL POLICE ON SITE WAITING TO HANDCUFF TRUMP AND TAKE HIM AWAY ON NATIONAL TELEVISION?

    BARR’S VOTE:

    Barr’s vote may never happen.
    Is McConnell postponing Barr’s vote because the Dem’s have told him their plan?

  36. Let’s see. Before Barr’s nomination, who was the last person that everyone in D.C. said was an honorable man and would be a good choice? Wait…it’s coming to me…ahhh yes…that would be Bob Mueller.
    Now let’s play another game. Who was the AG during the Waco event? You know. The one where the government slaughtered a bunch of people? Ahhh yes. Bill Barr. And who was the AG when Ruby Ridge happened? You know. The one where the FBI sharpshooter shot dead Randy Weaver’s wife while holding her baby? Yup. Bill Barr. And who did Bill Barr do a lot of advocating for their acquittal along with pro bono work? The same FBI sharpshooter.
    Now let’s play another game. What does Bill Barr think of our right to bear arms? Shall I bring up all the bans he’s supported besides the assault weapons ban? What about him wanting to see a ban on all semiautomatics? Shall we continue?
    Now I find it very odd that out of the blue he authors an 18 page opinion addressed to “whom it may concern” seemingly taking the side of Trump concerning Mueller. What private citizen does this on a whim? Maybe one trying to get Trump to think he was on his side? Maybe someone that some of Trump’s not so trusted advisors advised him to nominate For AG? It seems all just a little odd to me.
    If I were a betting man (oh…wait…I am), I would lay odds that this guy is another fine choice to follow in the footsteps of Sessions, Wray, Whittaker and everyone else that definitely is looking out more for “The Fine Institutions That Need to be Saved” rather than looking out for the country and it’s citizens. Does anyone want to bet me? Hmmm? Anyone?
