      His Charisma is at genius level. They say Charisma is the intersection of power, and empathy.

      so somebody’s the life of the party, and they come over and say hi, talk to you for a few minutes about what you’re up to… you leave the party thinking man, he’s got a lot of Charisma.

      President Trump’s a very powerful man, everybody is there to see him. Everybody wants his time, everybody wants something from him… and here’s a little lady with a flower… and the most powerful man in the world walks over and shows a little empathy.

      Genius level Charisma, it seems very easy but it’s not, you either have it or you don’t have it.

    Does PDJT know Barr will implement Justice or is Barr’s Transcript Broadcast Interview distributing on many levels to the President, as I was?

    AND Certainly PDJT was blindsided by McCabe not being criminally charged.

    I don’t know if Barr will implement Justice; I 100% know PDJT will implement Justice.

    This is war and PDJT will implement Justice.

    PDJT has many paths to implement Justice and will use those paths if necessary.

    Barr Legal Liability and/or he will be known throughout History for being a traitor:
    It would be so much easier for the President, if Barr would do his sworn duty. I know nothing should surprise anyone, especially after what we have seen for over 3-years now. What puzzles me, why would Barr, knowing there are libraries of direct evidence of criminal acts, seen by the America People which is never going away, come out of retirement to “Aid and Abet” criminal acts, knowing that there is a solid case against him, for willful blindness with evidence everywhere, showing Barr didn’t use normal investigative/prosecutorial policies and procedures. If Barr escapes Legal Liability because the coup/criminal won this Legal Civil War, he would still be known throughout history of destroying PDJT, his family and allowing the United States to become a 3rd world country. This is not normal thinking, it is not logical thinking, it is self-destructive with a lot of unknown risks. Yes, what we have seen in the last 3-years, anything is possible.

    We know this is not going away and Justice will and must happen.

    If Barr is on the Fence, or even if Barr is going to implement Justice; it would help to apply more pressure on Barr at the House testimony; go nuclear with the questions. The questions could reveal much about Barr and shock the world, if done correctly. Show the evidence. List the criminal acts. Anyone could write 20 questions easily in 15 minutes, 40 questions in 30 minutes or a thousand questions in several hours. This will help PDJT on many levels.

    Lindsey Graham has not kept his promises of opening Investigations that would apply another layer of pressure on Barr. Lindsey needs to be called out directly NOW and stop betraying the President!

    Yes, Bar Knows and We know; let’s shock everyone in detail of what we know. It would only take about a few hours for the House/Senate to construct checkmate questions, blow this wide open for everyone to have a reality check. Shock the FBI/DOJ, Criminals, Coup and the Media.

    This would Help PDJT on many levels. If Barr is pushed to implements Justice that would take a lot of pressure away from PDJT. If not, PDJT will implement other paths immediately for the criminal codes to be launched.

    No need to panic, this is how all wars go; PDJT has this. We can help!

    P/T knows more than we know and we all have seen the evidence over the last 3-years for easy prosecutions.

    P/T is not going to allow the largest criminal organization in U.S. history to escape Justice under his Presidency and destroy himself, his family and this republic.

    Especially since the President has many paths to implement justice.

      The U.S. Department of Justice MISSION STATEMENT:

      To enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; to provide Federal Leadership in preventing and Controlling Crime; to seek just Punishment for those guilty of Unlawful Behavior; and to “ensure fair and impartial administration of Justice for all Americans.”

      All Attorney Generals should be required before taking the position to write 1,000 times; “Ensure fair and impartial administration of Justice for all Americans.”

      How can the United States Attorney General, Chief Law Officer of the Federal Government in Charge of Enforcing Federal Laws, come out of retirement to create legal exposure for him and other unknown risks? This doesn’t add up. Barr knew before he accepted the position what he was getting into.

      We will wait and see.

      I understand Comey; he went along with the Obama Administration for more power/money and crossed the line into being an alleged dirty cop.

      You are exactly right about asking the right explosive questions to Barr for both the house/senate.

      Your right; concentrate on President Trump for Justice.

    “The consensus that Biden’s 2020 hopes are doomed is also being fueled by the barrage coming from the man who fears his candidacy the most – President Trump.

    Trump is so scared of facing Biden in a general election that the president got himself impeached for trying to get a foreign leader to damage Biden’s campaign.

    But there is something fundamentally unfair and undemocratic about the media driving a Trump message as conventional wisdom to damage Biden.”

      Socialism has a strong appeal to the people that an oligarchy has left behind. Listen to The Steve Bannon/Bill Maher interview from last week. There are only two ways for people to get the things that they need. Through their own efforts, meaning going to work everyday or socialism. When we sent all our jobs overseas, lots of people were left out of that equation, so the massive growth of the welfare state kept them from going postal. Why do you think President Trump is working so hard to get people off food stamps, to bring jobs back to United States, and to promote the work ethic that once defined America.

          Not sure what you mean about paragraphs. But if you’re saying that whenever you hit “enter” or “return”, instead of skipping a line it actually posts your comment, there’s a way around that. If you hold down “shift” at the same time you hit “enter” it’ll do the skip a line thing, rather than posting. 😉

    A couple days ago, I posed a few questions for discussion regarding Barr’s recent appointment of the St Louis US-A, and Weismann’s warning. With all the Barr outrage, it was understandably unaddressed. Well, they were addressed today by Bongino. About midway thru today’s show. One of his most interesting shows to date.
    He readily admits he doesn’t know the outcome of these investigations, but it makes me also think there just might be a master plan by Barr. Hope! We all need some.

    ‘CoupGate’ – A Localized Civil War Is Now Underway In The DoJ

    Liked by 1 person

    • I find the following quote from the above to be particularly interesting:

      I have a theory about the McCabe case: The Attorney General has taken the rinky-dink “lying to the FBI” charge off the table. It has become a liability, virtually the emblem for government misconduct, and Mr. Barr is getting rid of it in these matters. It has already caused too much mischief, insulted Americans’ sense of justice, and damaged the DOJ’s standing. (Note, Andrew McCabe has been let off only on this charge, stemming from only one particular IG referral; he may well yet be liable for more serious charges-to-come.) From here on, there will be no more rinky-dink lying charges against any of those implicated in the coup, only the most serious charges, and only those that add up to a solid case.

      The coup has been so broad, deep, and thick that I predict cases will have to be brought under the RICO statutes in batches for different groups in separate agencies and branches of government. […]

      • Further:

        Now, perhaps, you can see the scope of this big hot mess, and deduce the degree of difficulty that William Barr faces in attempting to set it all straight. He has to carefully select those who will be charged and probably not bother with some of the bit players. The charges are going to have to be serious, and the cases must be strong. It is a gigantic job of work, and rather delicate business considering the explosive potential to a government whose credibility is already pretty shredded. […] I believe Mr. Barr is aware of what’s at stake and will behave honorably.

        The moment any of these cases “drop,” they will immediately be attacked by the most well-paid defense lawyers on Planet Earth, who will bring every possible weapon to bear. Each case must be the strongest, most-solid case available. Second-grade offenses need not apply.

          Mike, it is a challenge to argue against the speculation put forth in that article versus any other productive course of action that has a reasonable chance of succeeding in the current highly poisoned atmosphere around DC (poisoned by both the Anti-Trump government employees and yellow stream eneMedia).

          I can still see an argument (albeit an increasingly weak one) that Barr wants to walk away from any effort to prosecute any of the coup conspirators / participants and just try to cover it all up and/or make it go away.

    Ladies and gents of the treehouse:
    Buckle up. Between now and January 20, 2021, we all have a front row seat to the most historical period in history. In the next few months, we will be shocked, scared, elated, disappointed, joyful, and sorrowful. Sometimes many emotions within the same day.
    While I cannot predict the 2020 election, all that has gone on will be aired for all to see.

    Many of us here understand what has happened to our President, our freedoms and our way of life. The sleeping masses have yet to hear the truth. One way or another, the truth will prevail and it will set us free.

    Donald J Trump is the right President for the right time in our nation. He has stopped a certitude of cessation of our freedoms. Remember no matter what you hear, see or read, he wasn’t supposed to win. Hillary had it in the bag. Heck, just ask her.

    Some trust Barr, some trust Pompeo, some believe Sessions was duped or blackmailed while others suspect he is deep state. I cannot tell you what is true or not about any of them but I trust one man in government: Donald J Trump. He isn’t perfect (only Jesus was perfect), but his heart is always In the right place.

    Let’s keep our dialog floating. I want to hear from all about what we all think of Barr and the rest. Dare I say our opinions will change.

    We have to win the races by a margin too big to cheat against. Narrow races will be decided by votes found in trunks of cars and amazingly enough, those votes ALWAYS break democrat.

    Stay faithful my friends. Stay faithful to God and stay faithful to those you love. VSGPDJT will always keep the faith with us.

        Every once in awhile a Dem gets in trouble for saying something that’s actually honest, or at least mostly right. Like Hillary’s “superpredators” comment.

        “We need to take these people on. They are often connected to big drug cartels, they are not just gangs of kids anymore. They are often the kinds of kids that are called superpredators — no conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first, we have to bring them to heel.”

        Considering the types of scum she’s talking about, I think it’s pretty accurate. (And by the way, I don’t think it specifically mentions race.) The only problem might be the “bring them to heel” part, since it implies they’re animals. But then again, if we’re talking about SOME hardcore gang types like MS-13… yeah, no problem (except that it denigrates real, non-human animals.)

        But none of this means it bothers me when a Dem gets slammed for stuff like this. Nope. They made their PC/SJW bed… now they can sleep in it!


    • treehouseron says:

      BTW this would be a good place to mention this: Way back in the day when Jim Bakker was running Heritage USA, he actually *DID* do some good with the money he was donated, one of the things was he ran a program called Fort Heritage, where they took former gang members and things and let them live there, while they taught them how to speak in interviews, how to dress for interviews, how to speak properly and with manners to people, etc.

      Some people (white people too) really don’t know how to find jobs or behave in the work place. Of course they’ll shishkabob Bloomberg for this but I agree with it wholeheartedly.

    So with these brilliant threads by Sundance pointing to the fork in the road for Barr, I thought it appropriate to go back and read Barr’s infamous speech from the Federalist Society.

    I found this section from his speech absolutely incredible and frankly incendiary to use Barr’s own word.

    “Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called “The Resistance,” and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the Executive Branch and his Administration.

    Now, “resistance” is the language used to describe insurgency against rule imposed by an occupying military power. It obviously connotes — It obviously connotes that the government is not legitimate.

    This is a very dangerous — and indeed incendiary — notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic.

    What it means is that, instead of viewing themselves as the “loyal opposition,” as opposing parties have done in this country for over 200 years, they essentially see themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government.”

    So Barr points out the “resistance” and what most of us call a coup, as very dangerous.

    But where is Barr’s same outrage of the resistance conducted by the DOJ and FBI against the President and the fact that this resistance has continued from many who currently work and have worked under him??

    I find this statement amazing and almost laughable.

    Is this hypocritical?
    Is this DOJ/FBI blindness?
    Or is this just needing more time?

    Well, we are a year in and I do find it hard to accept this statement knowing that he clearly sees the resistance but yet:

    1. The Flynn case continues when one should be able to determine if exculpatory evidence was withheld and if Flynn was framed?

    2. That the DOJ even with 4 counts against Flynn declines to prosecute.

    3. Even with the evidence of the Carter Page FISA Leak, the two people who orchestrated the plea deal for the leaker, face no legal action.

    4. Then we have the orchestrated Assange indictment to shut him down via jail.

    5. And finally with full authority to declassify EVERYTHING including Uranium One, HRC Server, DNC Server, Wiener Laptop, Hammer Hard Drives, FISA Abuse, Lying to FISA Court, Fake Dossier, FIB Contractor Abuse, Seth Rich Murder, massive DOJ/FBI leaking, Epstein, impeachment WB and Ukraine we have zero crimes and zero indictments.

    But hey, resistance is “very dangerous” as Barr so eloquently said.

    Now if only he would back up his speech with real justice against those who see “themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government” to quote AG Barr again.

    Frankly what Barr says just above sounds a lot like Seditious Conspiracy – 18 U.S. Code § 2384 to me.

    And we assume Mr. Barr, that this applies REGARDLESS if they work or worked in the DOJ and FBI!

    It is time for accountability, truth and justice for all Mr. Barr!


  44. TMonroe says:

    So how might one funnel money to political causes but cast it as saving the planet?

    “Jeff Bezos launches $10 billion Bezos Earth Fund, kicking off his own effort to fight climate change”


    “Climate change is the biggest threat to our planet,” he wrote. “I want to work alongside others both to amplify known ways and to explore new ways of fighting the devastating impact of climate change on this planet we all share.” He said the first grants to scientists, activists and non-governmental organizations would be issued this summer.”

    Now, wouldn’t the best way to approach this if you really thought this was a thing needing mitigating (and believed it were possible) to put the eleven-figure sum towards primarily the science part, which would include the manufacture and production part?

    How are creating new bureaucracies and funding advocates going to work towards their imagined solution, let alone impact production chains in China and India where the enviro issues appear at their worst? (If you think it might not be about what it seems, it may be potentially enlightening to read about the merchants and future collective buying and selling norms in a particularly revelatory section of a timeless classic you might find in a hotel nightstand.)

    For folks following Trump and NASCAR and the 500.

    The end of the race was marred by a horrific accident involving Ryan Newman. His car was turned into the wall and flipped upside down. An oncoming car then crashed into the top left area of the car around the driver. The rollcage around the driver’s head was very obviously pushed inward about a foot.

    Fortunately, an official statement from Roush Fenway Racing stated that he was in serious but not life threatening condition.


    Real news on his condition has not been available since it happened so hopefully this is some good news before some folks start going to bed tonight.
