WaPo Report: AG Bill Barr Threatens to Quit…

First, the “report” comes from the pathetic beltway crowd of journolist narrative engineers; so there’s likely little-to-no substance to the construct.  However, that said, if Bill Barr is so weak, pathetic and incapable of doing his job, that he needs to threaten to resign if President Trump tweets his opinion, then Barr is in the wrong profession.

…Unless, of course, President Trump’s pressure on Bill Barr is actually forcing the Attorney General to do something the AG is predisposed not to undertake.  Which, given the background history of Bill Barr, is also entirely possible.

Right around this moment-in-time is where a multitude of mutually aligned beltway quisling pundits will declare that Bill Barr’s delicate sensibilities are being wounded by a President who demands forceful accountability; ie. traditional DC republican pundits [insert Laura Ingraham and Max Boot here].

The bottom line is President Trump is doing absolutely nothing to impede Bill Barr from doing his job; if the U.S. Attorney General is factually intent on doing that job.

Ever since he assumed office the Attorney General has been praising the likes of Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller and Christopher Wray.  Given the nature of what is widely available in review, that level of logical disconnect is not representative of an individual who possesses reasonable judgement in the quest for deliberate justice…. just sayin’.

So until Bill Barr actually man’s-up and does something with the authority he has requested, the image of Bondo Barr attempting to cover-up the rot and wrongdoing while surrounded by visible and overwhelming corruption; and pontificating about “constitutional norms”; is a more apt descriptive.

President Trump has been victimized by the same institutions AG Bill Barr is now in charge of.  So forgive me if I don’t impart sympathy upon a person who is in charge of those institutions, whining about background noise, and seemingly incapable of addressing the abuse unless all of the planets are aligned to provide him the quiet atmosphere he requires while thumbing through the final chapters of his indulgent memoirs over a glass of chardonnay.

Suck it up cupcake.

When you get all done with that, there’s still a job to do.

The WaPo: -Attorney General William P. Barr has told people close to President Trump — both inside and outside the White House — that he is considering quitting over Trump’s tweets about Justice Department investigations, three administration officials said, foreshadowing a possible confrontation between the president and his attorney general over the independence of the Justice Department.

So far, Trump has defied Barr’s requests, both public and private, to keep quiet on matters of federal law enforcement. It was not immediately clear Tuesday whether Barr had made his posture known directly to Trump. The administration officials said Barr seemed to be sharing his position with advisers in hopes the president would get the message that he should stop weighing in publicly on the Justice Department’s ongoing criminal investigations.

“He has his limits,” said one person familiar with Barr’s thinking. (read more)

The problem facing Bill Barr is his own inability to deal with the issues within his own authority.

It was not President Trump that caused four underlings to defy Barr’s authority and set-up the attorney general with the image of a rogue DOJ lacking leadership and direction.  That issue was the direct result of Barr’s own inability to cut-out political corruption on his first days, weeks, months and year as the head of the agency.

No doubt several Bush-Republicans will stand quickly in defense of the psychologically wounded soldier sitting in the tent crying he just can’t take the sound of the thunder any longer.  And yes, President Trump is likely to be Pattonesque in removing his helmet, slapping the feeble-minded fool and demanding he get back in the fight…. after all:

TRUMP […] …yeah, I do make his job harder. I do agree with that. I think that’s true. He’s a very straight shooter. We have a great Attorney General, and he’s working very hard. And he’s working against a lot of people that don’t want to see good things happen, in my opinion. That’s my opinion, not his opinion. That’s my opinion. You’ll have to ask what his opinion is.

But I will say this: Social media, for me, has been very important because it gives me a voice, because I don’t get that voice in the press. In the media, I don’t get that voice. So I’m allowed to have a voice…. (more)

Now, go make me a sandwich – and tell the Attorney General to bring me a Diet Coke.

President Trump is an apex predator.  A genuine titan; not a politician.

President Trumps’ frames of reference are far larger than the irrelevant opinion of politicians who have never accomplished anything in their lives beyond self-indulgence.

This is the first time a seemingly larger predator has survived the piranha biting and small-minded scheming amid the swamp; and then stood up to squish them in the aftermath…. What we are seeing now is fear; genuine DC fear.

When Bill Barr said on ABC that President Trump’s tweets were difficult for him, in essence he showcased just how weak, pathetic and politically-minded he is.

Barr’s job is the same with or without President Trump expressing opinion on the visible DOJ and FBI corruption.  The president is simply reflecting outrage felt by a significant portion of the electorate.   It was a mistake for Barr to start whining about the issue, not because of anything Trump, but more specifically because Barr showed weakness within the same fishbowl he is supposed to control.

In the aftermath of a failed coup, powerful interests in DC now understand President Trump is strong; he’s dangerous. And those same voices in DC now see Bill Barr publicly admitting how weak and pathetic he is.

Those who dispatch and coordinate the narrative engineering, the piranhas per se’, know that once they can identify weakness they will exploit it to achieve their beltway objectives.

If the reporting is accurate, Bill Barr is pathetic; and that weakness simply highlights a likelihood his purpose was never to deal with corrupt issues in the first place.  Let us hope the reporting is inaccurate.

    So if tweets from the President (his boss) is an issue, then what about Senatorial tweets?



    And then there’s Rep. Devin Nunes with his, “bunch of dirty cops” statement often posted by Sundance…

    And then there is this:

    …”There is another development that is demoralizing to law enforcement and dangerous to public safety. That is the emergence in some of our large cities of District Attorneys that style themselves as “social justice” reformers, who spend their time undercutting the police, letting criminals off the hook, and refusing to enforce the law.”…

    My Meeting with Julian Assange

    ​There is a lot of misinformation floating out there regarding my meeting with Julian Assange so let me provide some clarity on the matter:

    At no time did I talk to President Trump about Julian Assange. Likewise, I was not directed by Trump or anyone else connected with him to meet with Julian Assange. I was on my own fact finding mission at personal expense to find out information I thought was important to our country. I was shocked to find out that no other member of Congress had taken the time in their official or unofficial capacity to interview Julian Assange. At no time did I offer Julian Assange anything from the President because I had not spoken with the President about this issue at all. However, when speaking with Julian Assange, I told him that if he could provide me information and evidence about who actually gave him the DNC emails, I would then call on President Trump to pardon him. At no time did I offer a deal made by the President, nor did I say I was representing the President. Upon my return, I spoke briefly with Gen. Kelly. I told him that Julian Assange would provide information about the purloined DNC emails in exchange for a pardon. No one followed up with me including Gen. Kelly and that was the last discussion I had on this subject with anyone representing Trump or in his Administration.

    Even though I wasn’t successful in getting this message through to the President I still call on him to pardon Julian Assange, who is the true whistleblower of our time. Finally, we are all holding our breath waiting for an honest investigation into the murder of Seth Rich.

    18 U.S. Code § 2384. Seditious Conspiracy

    who protects all the attempted coup d’etaters who willingly and knowingly have committed and continue to commit organized crimes against our USA, our Constitution, and our Citizens?

    “Thief State” [my term] traitors in the coup cabal have convicted themselves in their own words and actions for years.

    the legal penalties for their treason and other felonies are not, Not, NOT re-assignments, wrist slaps, paychecks, perks, insurance, pensions, anonymity, immunity and/or saving face.

    My duty, as a US citizen, is to report treasonous behavior to President Trump.

    To avoid 7 years in prison for misprision of treason (failure to report treason), I am reporting to President Trump that Dana Boente is a traitor.

    Each and every attempted coup d’etater is guilty of failing to report their own treason, thereby choosing 7 years in prison.

    puppeteers hide in swampy shadows while puppets do their dirty work.

    How can we make changes to defeat the organized crimes of corruption?

    1. Examine our own faulty beliefs that enslave us and hold us hostage to abusers, predators, hopium pushers, and Whinos – White-hats-in-name-only.

    false white knights who are paraded before us with great fanfare and promise for CONfirmation reveal themselves, by their stonewalling, slow-walking, and obstruction of justice to be traitorous PROTECTORS of criminals and Criminal Institutions in America.

    How many attorneys general (bondobarr), inspectors general (horridwitz), directors of intelligence agencies (betwray ), and CONgressional committee “watchdogs” have been hailed as heroes then exposed to be sellers of false hope – hopium – all bark, no bite – and protectors of Criminal Institutions in America?

    those betrayers protect evil by being Black Holes for Truth.

    criminal protectors, “fixers” such as bondobarr, including redactors, FOIA-blockers, and propagandists are integral parts of organized corruption – black markets, coup d’état attempts, deception, extortion, grift, invader crimes, mass murderers, propaganda, ratlines, shampeachment, sedition, theft, treason, voter fraud, wars-for-profit.

    We can change our beliefs to protect us from the lack-of-action inertia of being hopium junkies, helplessly waiting for the next “two weeks” to bring arrests of the traitors.

    2. File Class Action Civil RICO Lawsuits against the attempted coup d’etaters.

    3. Stop re-electing the criminal “fixers” in CONgress, such as mcCONnull and l.gruhm.

    4. Report all treasonous acts to President Trump.

    ONE crime = theft

    Coup d’etat

    Coup par le vol = Coup by theft

        Whitehaven is a Clinton family-owned mansion in Washington, D.C. used by Hillary Clinton when she is in residence in the capital. (The primary Clinton home is in Chappaqua, New York.) Built in 1951, the Georgian-style house is located near Washington’s Embassy Row.
        Architectural style: Georgian architecture
        Building function: Mansion

        Little Ms. Fart-Ass now very recently emerged from the sewage of the swamp, with her makeup still on. She has never run for office before. Politically she’s a VIRGIN. She’s Hillary’s dupe. The Clinton machine never stops. Lots of money is left over from Hillary’s campaign. And using it in this way to fund other candidates is ENTIRELY LEGAL.

    Let’s quote things accurately, not inaccurately. For the the record, Barr used the word “IMPOSSIBLE” in that interview. He didn’t say the word “difficult”. That’s a fact.

    Words still have meaning. That’s all we needed to know. Barr revealed himself in THAT one sentence with THAT one word. We realized it, IF we were paying attention…

    I noticed that. Did anyone else notice it? Apparently Trump did.

    Our perceptions hardly matter. Trump’s noticed it and his perceptions DO matter. And his subsequent actions will matter even more.

      I hope Barr does resign! Perhaps President Trump can at least get an interim REAL Attorney General in that spot, because Mitch McConnell won’t approve of a REAL conservative who will get the law followed, in that position!
      Look back at Barr’s career. Appointed by Bush, involvement int he Randy Weaver debacle….a swamp dweller to be sure! The only thing Barr did was stop the Mueller inquisition, which was false from the outset!
      Since then, NOTHING! CRICKETS! Just like Mr. Magoo, Jeff Sessions! I’m sick and tired of these men getting put in the AG chair, only to do NOTHING! Barr won’t even follow Peter Schweizer’s bread crumb footnote trail to finally be led to the crimes of Joe Biden and his crew, THE

      Absolutely no surprise on Barr. And I told you all this the day he was nominated. Oh yeah, and no one is going to jail. Durham ain’t gonna do squat. Durham’s job is to stall hoping the “People” will opt to “keep their powder dry.” What a joke


  11. X XYZ says:

    “Barr has not refuted the claim that he might resign. He has a press officer and he has a microphone available to him at all times.”

    All lawyers do this. It’s a power play. They think they are the smartest people on earth and they control EVERYTHING, especially their clients.

    “If you don’t listen to my advice, I’m quitting! I’m taking my marbles (and your money) that you gave me, and going home.” It’s schoolyard politics, played with much more expensive marbles.

    Attorney Barr:
    Nobody asked you or told you to quit. That was your decision to make. You revealed yourself, because you ran your mouth, blabbing on TV, revealing yourself in public. Now we know who you are. You wanna quit? You already told us everything we needed to know.

    What are the two words Trump is most famous for?

    First time opining.
    But Barr pulling the wool over on Trump? Really? Come on. Think this through. This is likely posturing. When the hammer comes down on the seditionists it can’t look like it’s Trumps personal vendetta dutifully carried out by his subservient wing man. Forging independence. Standing up for what’s right. Even against his respected boss. Plus they now will get to highlight in the future that Trump’s-reasonable and serious as is evidenced by his meaningful reduction in commenting on active JD cases post scolding. No dictator here. Just watch. You’ll see.
    Barr’s going to go down in history. If he’s not gone by the weekend, he’s Trump’s and consequently our guy so we need to accept the clear decision by POTUS to keep him.
    Come Monday, if Barr remains, El Bailadore de Sol needs to make this sudden, irrational swallowing and perpetuation of msm hate narratives a one and done error.

        Yes, I agree. Irrational left was my aim more so than Sundance-and thanks for not gigging my gringo-translation. All part of an objective to use more and more Spanish every day.
        I just think more of Barr’s forging of defiant independence and seemingly slow walking or burying indictments and verbally not exposing himself as a controlled wing man who hates Dems like POTUS “acts” like he does, is by design than it is evidence of incompetence. Multiple opinions on this are legitimate however.. El Bailadore and I just disagree on this.
        Barr’d be gone…..If he wasn’t useful to Trump’s long term objective.


        • jello333 says:

          Yeah, I’m still not 100% certain about Barr myself. He’s done/said a few things that had me cheering, then on the other hand… But I just keep coming back to Durham. That guy seems to be so tough and relentless (and a bit scary) that I can’t imagine why Barr would have brought him onboard if he was just gonna play more games. I just don’t know anymore.

          (As for Spanish, I’ve had a total of about 3 years of classes over the years, spent a few years with lots of Mexican friends when I was a kid, and so overall have a pretty decent foundation in the language. So I’m kinda embarrassed that I haven’t yet gone all the way and try to be something close to “fluent”. I think I may buy the new version of Rosetta Stone and get back into it. 🙂 )

I too have been puzzled when I see him incautiously tack into a headwind as he’s seemingly done here with Barr but darn it if he doesn’t come out smelling like a rose nearly every time. As an outcome oriented guy as long as Trump keep betting on Barr, so do I.
            Some friends had great success with verbling.com personal tutors.


    • Responding to Chateaubriandah, 11:30 pm:

      Sundance’s reasoned criticisms of Barr predate the “msm hate narratives” of the last week, to which you refer. So the two are independent, have entirely different origins and motivations. You are the one who needs to correct his thinking. Barr has ever only telegraphed his determination NOT to give us true justice amid the ongoing “get Trump” coup d’etat, most recently in his not indicting McCabe, and especially in his telling the world, in an ABC interview, that he thought the Stone trial was a “righteous prosecution” and he was happy that Stone was convicted — without, of course, mentioning the biased jurors and both biased and incompetent judge, which still has to be faced, even and especially because that judge has willfully and prematurely sentenced Stone, and openly stated her own hatred of Trump (“…you covered up for him…”, a willful, deluded lie on her part). But then, all of this has already been said, by many of us; yet it escapes you entirely.

      Your defense of Barr is one more illustration of just how divided this nation is, even among those on the same side of any given debate or argument. There is a lack of focus upon the facts, when one finds them hard to take for one’s own personal reasons.

      I knew 10 years ago this was coming. I invented the terms “Insane Left” and “War of the Insane Left” (of which, Judge Jackson’s persecution of Stone is just one small battle).

      And I knew our peoples’ divided sensibilities would lead to REAL war, eventually but unavoidably, if people couldn’t be made, or coaxed, to face the hard facts, rather than their own fervent desires (their own mad cult beliefs, in the case of the Insane Left and Left-biased media). Nothing in the last 10 years has changed that outlook, that prognostication. We are headed for real war…But, you say, wait ’til Monday, or the Spring or Summer when Durham’s review/investigation (is it a review? an investigation? who can tell?) is “complete”.

      I do not welcome you, as freely as Ad Rem has.


      • Chateaubrianduh! says:

        My faith in Barr at this time is based upon Trumps faith in Barr at this time. As well as the potential Ive seen him demonstrate publicly on occasion that he has the rare personality/credentials ability to stand up firm against media/political and yes insider (hmmm) attacks.
        What escapes you however might be the ability to understand or at least consider what happens in arenas beyond your own world. It’s not all laid out so clear as you fantasize. See bad, shoot! Score point. Most points wins!
        How, where, when play massive sometimes controlling factors in the real world. Barr going off all half cocked so we can stand up and pat ourselves on the back and yell “see, I told ya, whoopee” wont even dent a drop of this swamp. A hundred of those wont do jack. Ten thousand either. Except make you feeeel good. Hmmm.
        Timing matters… is also a fact. See how facts get selectively utilized though? Selectively emphasized anyway. Those who place our informed and optimistic confidence in Trump’s decision on Barr don’t do so because your brilliance escapes us, ok? Or because facts are ignored.
        If your point is “show me whom he has slayed”, your point is valid. No more valid though than our point that POTUS looks long term, has a incredible track record of winning that I’m guessing now, might just trump yours and at this point Barr is his man.
        And this unwelcoming of opinions because they don’t align with your’s? Again, hmmmm.

Let us not pretend that many of us here do not remember the 1960’s, including the riots and the civil unrest that happened then. “10 years ago”? Instead of pontificating, go study history. America has a very long history of riots, often occurring in a cycle of several decades.

        “We are headed for real war…”

        No, Harry, we are headed for just another ugly bout of civil unrest.
