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.

    Thank you for writing this masterpiece article. We’ve been bombarded relentlessly to ignore the core reason we love Trump and go along with the herd on the tweet “distraction”.
    “Just this time, mind you, just this one time”

    Once I agree it is best PDJT should stop tweeting, while Michael Flynn and Roger Stone have been railroaded by true criminals, one of a thousand examples, I open myself up to risk of herd agreement on next week’s outrage product. No thanks! Stay strong. Leverage SD’s argument with others that are buying into the “Stop the Tweets Or Bill Might Quit” manipulation.

So what, I say, Barr needs to do what he was hired to do, or get out of here! By now we have all heard many of the facts on what has been going on in the intelligence community for years, and it is high time to make some changes and either put some people in jail, shoot them, or have them hung for treasonous activities! There is no way for Barr to cover things up anymore, and maybe that is why he has considered quitting, if he has actually said that.

            This is their SOP…to influence what people think, to make up their minds for them. After reading in The Epoch Times some of the propaganda the communist Chinese used in the lead-up to the election in Taiwan, I am convinced our media is using the same techniques. As James O’Keefe (Project Veritas) has proved: in Russia people who read Pravda knew they were being lied to…in the US we are lied to but the people don’t realize it.

            The sea change in how we are presented with “the news” from the 60’s-70’s to now is immense. What is disheartening is that our youth are not aware.

            There is a battle going on in this country, and it’s outcome will depend on people of integrity facing a foe that has the press as its propaganda arm. Stand strong!

        • WHat Barr ‘feels’, if it is about what SOME PEOPLE perceive him to be, should be of no consequence.

          if he is going to join in the present day pervasive attitude of eternal adolescent self-consciousness, worry about peer pressure…then he is not someone who is bucking this trend and reverting to the attitude that had been pervasive well into the mid 20th century.

          Be raised by strong parents or if missing that, find a mentor who instill strong values.
          Suffer through adolescence while staying curious and pursuing excellence
          GROW UP and leave behind the worries of peer pressure and become your own person.

          IF Barr, along with many others who are alternately lions for Trump and then lackeys for deep state, has wealth tied to turning a blind eye to or even profiting from nefarious and underhanded globalist shenanigans, this makes sense.

          His speech several months ago at a lunch or breakfast, rang with truth and courage and justified rage at deep state.

          But we know that deep state employ Arkancide and fund AG and justice malfeasance.

          We know that the risk of using anyone in Beltway is that threats to family, to career, to wealth and blackmail for information collected by an overreaching ‘intelligence/globalist elite’ are all real.

          But Occam’s razor doesn’t really fit here because Trump’s strategy is anything but obvious…while proven effective.

          It’s awe inspiring that one man is navigating through these toxic seas. He must indeed have a hand of God aiding him.

            The president has no choice but to say he has faith in Barr until the time comes he decides to get rid of him. POTUS also knows that getting a new AG approved through McConnell’s Senate will be difficult unless it’s someone the establishment approves of. POTUS is a master at timing, so he’ll show his hand when he’s ready (if there is a hand to show) and then action will happen. However, what he says to the press needs to be understood through the lens of knowing who he is speaking to and what his goal is for the information he is telling them. So, when he says he has faith in someone I’d take it with a grain of salt. He might have faith in Barr, but he also may be using the statement to manipulate the media.

      In a strategy that played upon the left’s weakness, Barr going to them could be a bone thrown to them that they would eagerly pick up, thinking that NOW they had him….without ever even considering that someone who was saying everything THEY say might be a trojan horse.

      The hubris of the left is so enormous that we have watched with astonishment as they have routinely rejected the one obvious consideration that perhaps Trump is there because THEY have overplayed their hand and dismissed too many people who actually are smarter than they are…

    First and for most, I wonder which of the journolist in the above photo realize how many American Soldiers have died representing America and fighting for freedom of speech? Second, I read that DOJ flat out denied this Barr resignation claim. Third of all, if Barr is a white hat (which I believe) what he is doing will have to be buttoned up tight if it is exposed and litigated in the public square. Finally, if Barr is a black hate I have ultimate confidence that President Donald John Trump will deal with it appropriately and as needed. Consider Presidential council from Devin Nunes, Mike Pompeo and Mark Meadows to name a few. These guys will keep Team Trump values alive now and into the future.

    There is large number of ELITE, entrenched political class in D.C. who care not for this country or you and I. Supporting that is the Military Industrial Complex which one can only imagine the swamp gasses coming off of that aged group. This system has become self preserving and some components dont even comprehend their amoral actions to keep it alive and corrupt. Add to that the propaganda of corporate media and the culture of America educational system.

    This is the recipe of one nasty bitch of a government developed over many years since the depression. A bitch with tools like the FISC and a DOJ (with 95% conviction rate) at their disposal

    Now think about your buddies you would have lunch with when Obama was President. I didn’t take as much interest when Washington was “kicking the can down the road”, but at that lunch we would discuss everything we would do if we just got a chance to run things in Washington. Well I’ll be damned if President Donald John Trump went and got himself a turn in D.C. None of us had any idea how bad things really were, we only sensed this. In three short years PDJT has had a rumble with the Federal Government just like all of us pretended to with our buddies at lunch.

      Right on, right on, right on. Very perceptive. I believe Barr is “lying in the weeds” – not erecting warning signs for those who ought to be concerned about what he’s really up to. And while this may simply be wishful thinking (hoping), I will keep the faith that Barr does what I (and I’m sure President Trump), expects him to do. Remember, Barr has appointed some outside prosecutors with history of “doing the right thing”. Why would you do that if cleaning up the swamp wasn’t the true purpose? At some point, Barr can pull the trigger and proclaim how utterly shocked he is at what’s been learned about swamp creatures, how it breaks his heart to see how these institutions have been subverted, etc., etc., etc. , AND NOW THE TIME HAS COME FOR A CLEAN-UP ON AISLES 1, 2, 3 and 4!!!!

      One point I’d make, is that Trump has spent a lot of time and energy appointing conservative judges, this coming after 8 straight years of Obama appointments. These people can’t really hide their liberal proclivities.

      My point is, Obama also had 8 years to create a deep state of his liking. Not only is that bureaucrats in all departments of the executive branch of the government, but also in the upper echelons of the military. Obama spent 8 years trying to weed out anyone that wasn’t supporting his program. And I believe Obama did just that. Obama set this up to make it easy for these people to hide in plain sight. And Obama never had to worry that his media dept. would ever complain about the partisan moves he was making for 8 years.

      Trump comes in with no clue what being a CEO of DC is truly like. I’m sure once he realized how anti-Trump the Federal bureaucracies were, it was almost overwhelming. And the Deep State set it up to be able to threaten Trump with Obstruction if he did anything to rock their boat. But he is OUR fighter. and little by little he’s trying to drain this damned swamp. I just hope he’s able to clear out more than half of it in his 8 years. I’m confident that he will have pretty much fixed the Judicial Branch. The only thing he can’t directly fix is the disingenuous media; hopefully they will be so overly confident and narcissistic that they will be responsible for their own demise.

      The bottom line: Trump has to have a STRONG AG, and that’s one thing he’s been missing thus far. If Barr has some epiphany and decides to actually do his job, he might still be okay, but his window of opportunity to prove himself is pretty much over. Probably the most important thing Trump has to do in his second term is to appoint the perfect AG. Please say lots of prayers for our PT. He’s going to need them.

      Good post! While the jury is still out on Barr, my common-sensometer pinged on this story. (And not just because it’s from WaPo.)

      One thing Barr is NOT, is a blabbermouth. Oh, he may say things that set us off (or we think are unnecessary), but his words are carefully crafted. He doesn’t leak, and he doesn’t slip. And he didn’t come out of retirement to take this job, being scared to speak directly with the POTUS, or for himself.

      It doesn’t seem feasible that Barr would choose a passive-aggressive method to communicate his supposed dissatisfaction with his job, to the President. That is what teenage girls do. I’d have to think Barr is more direct.

      I’d also have to think that Barr has more self-control than to allow his emotions to affect his professionalism. Being stressed or frustrated with his job is one thing, but verbally threatening to quit – to anyone OTHER than his boss (PDJT) – would be abjectly stupid. Barr ain’t stupid.

      Maybe this job is getting to him, dunno. Maybe he just doesn’t like his boss. We’ll see. But this whole “sources familiar with his thinking” crap is beyond ridiculous.

      it was a chance reunion right when Trump was campaigning for the nomination, that provided me a first hand entree into the thinking of deep state and the globalists…all of whom were cronies and friends of my ex.

      I’ve written this before so forgive those who are sick of seeing it:
      1) Hillary was to be elected
      2) All nation borders were to be dissolved
      3) A ruling elite, circled loosely around the UN, were to each CHOOSE a region that looked ripe for financial development
      4) Such regions were to be specially overseen by a benevolent globalist, a pet project if you will
      5) Births were to be carefully controlled and abortion to be used ‘correctly’
      6) The optimum world population was, as Erlich’s book, “The Late GReat Planet EArth” heavily based on the debunked Malthusian theory, advised to be, 500 million…a number currently 6.5 billion LESS than the world’s population

      When I asked about the regions of the world that are so paralyzed by crime and rancor and violence, the response was a shrug…one that Goebbels or Mengeles or Der Fuhrer would have approved.

      Building crematoriums and shipping people off in cattle cars is so messy and so obvious.
      Why not use the tools of nihilism that the last 60 years of film have suggested so well in how to take down whole populations? Diseases released mysteriously? Disease released through unvetted illegal immigrants? Health care that approves or rejects treatment? RAdical terrorism annihilating the Judeo Christian ethos that has been the cornerstone of the development of modern civilization? Education that omits the grizzly truth and demonizes and villifies heroes with no opportunity for defense? Science that buries and destroys substantive alternatives to theories that do not pan out under the microscope of reality? Families carefully vetted to be raising the right children with the right genes and the right thoughts? Gene manipulation for a master race?

  8. AG Barr has been in the office for one year. What are some of his accomplishments?

    1. Barr declared Epstein killed himself
    2. Not a single indictment against the coup plotters
    3. Trump supporter Flynn indicted on false charges and falsified information from the DOJ and FBI.
    4. Almost nothing declassified. NO transparency.
    5. Judicial Watch almost always has to sue both DOJ and FBI to get information and then it is still redacted. (Just watch some of their videos, it is totally disgusting)
    6. Barr declares Russia interfered in our elections, when Mr. Wikileaks himself said it was a DNC leak.

    Too many people don’t ask this question of accomplishments. There is an earlier post about Barr’s speech at Notre Dame as “proof” that we should trust him.

    WORDS DON’T COUNT, ONLY ACTIONS AND RESULTS!

    Trump is the best president in our lifetime not because he talks smoothly or “right”, he is the best president

    AG Barr is one of the worst AGs so far in our nation’s history, because with ample proof of a coup not a single coup plotter has been indicted.

    NO JUSTICE IS BEING SERVED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.

    Please, when you evaluate people look at what they do and accomplish. Otherwise we will keep getting Bushes, Romneys, or Judge Kennedies who say Obamacare is legal.

    The question you may ask, why then did President Trump nominate Barr? Because with our corrupt Senate he is the best he could get. Barr did help finish the Mueller Gestapo investigation, that is something he did accomplish, and that was a job well done. But the corrupt Senate will not allow their friends or themselves to go to jail, so they approved another swamp creature.

          To me, the best reason to trust Barr (up to a point, anyway) is that the swamp is so desperately trying to void him. Someone, either on this site or an other, made the point that the people who are being questioned probably hurry back to their Lawfare pals and debrief them on how the questioning went and what was being asked. Lawfare can then tie these threads into a better picture than what you or I have of what track the investigations are taking. And Lawfare doesn’t like what they are hearing, not one little bit.

      He has done all this while contending with the media and 1/2 of America taking MSM word for gold. He has remained unconflicted and seconds the greatest brawler in American history.

    “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.”

    That says it all right there. If Barr was a true to his claims of being immune to influence in the domestic spear in his quest for blind justice his answer to Trumps tweets would have been simple when asked. Q tweets Barr “opinion of citizens, media, or even the president has no bearing on my decisions in regards the application of Justice”.

    Instead he was influenced by opinions in the media and lashed out at the Pres influencing his side of the electorate (like Trump is supposed to do). Trump was not demanding nothing of Barr or the DOJ just shinning light on the ill known by gen pop facts. The result is the impression of a gap the media jumped into to drive a wedge. I would bet this Barr resign is just more fake news. The media is probing. If Trump Barr are on same page Trump may call Barr which could then be leveraged to show interference or if they are not get Trump to lash out maybe while at least making Barr have a back of the head motivation to show independence.

    I see Barr like the rest of the ole school repubs motivated to do right but at sametime feels some imaginary loyalty to institutional rules so wants to navigate a way to do it in the rules and so as to protect the institution. The problem is he is fighting a group that has no such moral qualms and will cheat get dirty lie etc… He is trying to do a queens rules fight vs a pit fighter. That last sentence is why repubs regularly lose fights they should easily win while Trump who understands a fight has no rules if they pull a knife you pull a gun continues to just plow over all comers.

    Barr is not the type I would have chose for this job. There is enough evidence for his way to work but due to his overriding goal to protect the institution it will be done slowly and with one hand behind the back to keep the impact down to keep rash at bay. Sadly the rash is what is needed to actually correct the system which goes against Barrs goal of protecting the institution. It is hard for ranking lifers of any institution to admit their institution was the failure that allowed the abusers to use for nefarious goals.

    The only promising things I see is explosion of the corrupt abusers coming out rallying the troops. It smells of fear of attack.

    Thought we should have the actual verbiage on the option of filling a Presidentially appointed, Senate confirmed position, known as advise and consent position.

    4 ways.

    Using the Vacancy Act:
    When an executive branch advice and consent position covered by the Vacancies Act becomes vacant, it may be filled temporarily in one of three ways under the act: (1) the first assistant to such a position may automatically assume the functions and duties of the office; (2) the President may direct an officer who is occupying a different advice and consent position to perform these tasks; or (3) the President may select an officer or employee who is occupying a position, in the same agency, for which the rate of pay is equal to or greater than the minimum rate of pay at the GS-15 level, and who has been with the agency for at least 90 of the preceding 365 days.

    In general, a temporary appointment under the Vacancies Act continues until no later than 210 days after the date the vacancy occurred or, if the vacancy occurred during a Senate recess, 210 days after the date the Senate reconvenes. The time restriction is suspended, and the acting officer can continue to serve, if a first or second nomination for the position has been submitted to the Senate for confirmation and is pending. The acting officer can continue to serve for an additional 210 days after the rejection, withdrawal, or return of such a nomination.

    (4) recess appointment

    So based on this and the fact McConnell will never allow PT a recess appointment, IMO PT best option is:

    1) Take Munchin or one of PT most trusted MAGA people who already has advise and consent approval to temporarily run the DOJ.

    2) PT makes Sidney Powell a WH Presidential Appointee (no Senate approval required) and he puts in the role of Special Liaison or Justice Czar working directly with Munchin in running the DOJ.

    3) PT provided Munchin and Powell with full declassification authority

    4) Powell sits in all staff meetings and and all meetings with Durham, Pittsburgh US Attorney, Brooklyn US Attorney and St. Louis US Attorney.

    5) Munchin & Powell declassify and unredact then read and review all communications from Russia Gate, Spygate, Mueller Gate, FISA Gate, Impeachment Gate and Ukraine Gate and advise the President.

    6) this continues until Nov whereby from PT’s rallies and his new battle cry, “Give me at least 8 and I can give you Sidney, Flynn and Rudy.” Then We the People provide PT with at least 8 new Republican Senators from the Nov election while we sacrifice Mitch to set an example for all RINOS.

    7) 53+8-1=60 Getting to 60 will ensure going forward in Nov that PT’s nominees of Sidney Powell, Gen. Flynn and even Rudy if he goes there can be confirmed by a simple majority as we have 9 extras to compensate for RINO holdouts AND we no longer have Mitch to play his games.

    So PT here is the road map. But please remember the new rule #1……………

    This is frustrating. If you listened, or watched live, the interview with Barr, he DID NOT STATE THAT TRUMP’S TWEETS MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO DO HIS JOB. He was speaking GENERALLY about how the social media and fake news media narratives make it difficult to do his job. The interviewer then twisted that to ask if specifically TRUMP made it difficult, and Barr acknowledged that yes, ALL the public chatter made it difficult and he included Trump, but along with everyone else. The media then snipped that tiny part and published their stories It’s their trickery and I’m sick of it. If you don’t listen to every speech and read every transcript, the narrative engineers go to work and tell the public what they want the public to hear. They did the same thing with Mulvaney (I think) about the quid pro quo. Don’t believe anything you read without going to the full source and reading or watching for yourself. They don’t want Barr in place precisely because HE IS going after bad guys in spades. Just go to justice.gov and read the daily indictments that are published. I get very disappointed when “our side” falls in line with the published narrative. And another thing, while I’m ranting this morning, all those supposed law enforcement types who signed the letter/petition/whatever to get Barr to resign…. well, the narrative engineers did the same thing with the climate change garbage… they get a long list of pwn’d “scientists” to sign a letter to make something look authentic, and the few who stand up to the lie are silenced, destroyed, or worse. Thank George Soros for the mayhem we have. Try this approach: Anything you read or hear, assume it’s garbage or a lie, then find out who funds the folks trotting out the messaging.

    I agree with you, it would be foolish to believe that the chances of Barr resigning over this are zero. That highlights the enduring reality throughout, Trump remains at risk of insider treachery or, more likely in the instant case, the other side bagging another causality.

    As I think everyone here knows, this is the political war equivalent of WWII. The battles continue to rage, and Trump would have been long gone if he always let loose with raw firepower.

    Examples abound just within DOJ. While Sessons was No Profile In Courage, if he hadn’t recused at that stage, they would have soon enough forced his resignation in the face of impeachment. Fueling the effort against Trump’s removal.

    It’s worth remembering that throughout Mueller’s tenure they were attempting to goad Trump into firing him. Rosenstein too at a certain point.

    I’m a close observer of Trump’s mood, as I’m sure many are here. He’s cool as a cucumber, as he always seems to be (and signal to us) when he on the offensive against his enemies and winning, winning, winning.

    It’s thus important for us to keep in mind that He (and Barr) just won the important battles — complete removal of Liu and the Stone Four. The other side is really blowing a gasket, not simply feigning such in the hopes of snookering us. But we’re not the “Tick Tock” or “Trust the Plan” knuckleheads, are we. If we err it’s from the other direction.

    Also, although it assures nothing, the McCabe declination was anything but a loss. It always struck me as akin to the trap that was Comey’s referral for leaking classified information. Both were fake reckonings which would have ended in acquittals (e.g. Craig) and narrative disaster. Again, if this was such a win, why couldn’t they muster a victory lap lasting more than three minutes?

    As I mentioned before, The Dog That Isn’t Barking is whether McCabe is cooperating. His post-declination letter vague belly-aching certainly raises that specter. As does the silence of the four prosecutors and the urgent HJC hearing so urgent it’s scheduled for the end of March.

    Moreover, while we get what Trump is up to in terms of constraining Barr, the following is worth a read for the complexity it adds:

    https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/02/why-wasnt-andrew-mccabe-charged/

    Remember, Barr referred to the “constant background noise” that makes it “impossible for me to do my job.” By putting it in the shiny object context of the POTUS’s tweet he was able to deliver a broad message to all concerned. That includes leaking fifth columnists in DOJ/FBI, Congress (specifically mentioned), and former officials and judges. After all, what is the difference between Trump saying that Stone and Flynn have been treated horribly, and all of them and their allied media braying that Stone should be locked up for nine years Because, I guess, the ineluctable math of Sentencing Guidelines?

    Berman-Jackson is between a rock and a hard place. She was forced to declare beforehand that Stone would suffer no adverse consequences from her sentencing him tomorrow. He won’t be going to prison pending his appeal. Trump, being Trump, signaled in no uncertain terms that he’ll commute Stone’s sentence otherwise. Yesterday — importantly not before — Trump said he was letting the process play out.

    Unless I miss my mark, she will sentence Stone to a fraction of the 7-9 year draconian recommendation. Then she’ll attempt to save the verdict from a mistrial if that’s possible. It might be given that the jury forewoman is a lawyer so she may have sufficiently covered her bases during Voir Dire. But it remains a disastrous death by a thousand cuts narrative in an election year that the Democrats are loathe to suffer with no end in sight.

    While I just don’t think they can ever get smart so I don’t see it happening, the right play for Berman-Jackson (and the anti-Trump/Barr claque) would be a sentence of, say, 6 months. This would let some air out of the vicious double-standard balloon, and give Barr some room to negotiate a plea (two-months!) in anticipation of a mistrial. Though more likely is a harsher sentence, Berman-Jackson then denying the motion for a new trial, and Stone appealing while out on bail.

    One other point about the Barr resigning rumor.

    Who just three months ago makes the speech that he did at the Federalist Society and then runs away?

    I encourage everyone to go back and read the entire transcript as it’s all about the assault on the Executive Branch.

    But here is a key section and again I ask, who says this and then turns tail and runs away?

    “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.”

    Basically IMO Barr is saying the resistance IS A COUP and being engaged in a war to CRIPPLE a duly elected government is by definition……….

    SEDITIOUS CONSPIRACY – 18 U.S. Code § 2384

    So why give THIS speech focused on the assault of the Executive Branch if you are going to cut and run? It doesn’t make sense as historians will have a field day with Barr’s words vs his actions.

    No, I don’t see Barr running. But I’m still unsure of why the ABC interview unless it’s just to provide distance before justice??

    The good news is this is coming to a head one way or another by or before 3/31.

    50/50 chance of it being one or the other. in other words nobody knows. It could be the classic Good Cop/Bad Cop routine? It could be that Barr is scared of the enormity of the naked corruption in a house he helped build? It could be that he so loves the DOJ that he’s willing to give it a long overdue haircut and restore integrity of this corrupt institution in the eyes of the (thinking, productive, flag waving, God fearing) public?

    I believe AG Barr should hold a presser by COB Friday to “clear the air” – he owes it to the country.

    Nearly everybody on this site knows and understands that the WP is the disinformation arm of the coupsters. The rest of the press picks the headline up and runs with it. So, why are we ALWAYS getting in a tizzy knowing that everything they write is suspect.

    AG Barr is getting hit by the Left, by people here at CTH, the press and the corrupt employees that he has to deal with. In his world he has only one person he can count on for support, and that is the President.

    What happens, four lawyers who hate Trump baits him into tweeting an angry response to an outrageous sentencing request and he bashes The Justice Department. In a sense, bashing AG Barr,

    Now what? The one person AG Barr thought he could count on to back him up starts pounding him and his agency on a worldwide forum without discussing the issue with him first. Sorry folks, if I were in AG. Barr’s position quitting would look awful good to me too.

    The coupsters landed a nasty body blow to AG Barr and President Trump’s strong relationship, no doubt about it. AG Barr and President Trump have to find a better way to communicate.

    Three things.
    One, the President creates the headlines an honest media should be printing.
    Two, Barr should have never shown disloyalty by bitching about his boss on an enemy news show.
    Three, as Sundance often says, Ask The Right F__king Questions. What exactly is Barr’s job? What did Mitch confirm Barr to do?

    That demand sounds to me like its aimed directly at Attorney General William Barr.

    If Barr really was thinking about resigning over Trump tweets, PDJT starts the day not by holding back, but by hammering on all the pressing issues facing the the AG.

    What to make of it?

    I’ve got a bit of a different take.

    If you now have the media believing there is a rift between Barr and Trump, does this not take a major arrow from their quiver? The arrow that Barr is Trumps yes man?

    With that belief system removed from the press and public thought, then when Barr drops the hammer it won’t be seen as him doing Trumps bidding.

    Just a thought. 64D chess/wishful thinking I suppose.

    • I had high hopes for Durham because he actually had a track record of getting corrupt FBI agents punished. Now that AG Barr went out of his way to protect McCabe and not indict him despite proof of crimes worse than Stone tells me that we will not get justice while he is in charge.

      But hopefully, with landslide wins on Nov 3 we can get someone like Judge Jeanine and have a DOJ that actually delivers justice, not “protect the (corrupt) institution”.

    If Barr indicted, what are the chances of a DC jury convicting? If this is a coup being treason ( I think it is), does it have to go to a civilian court? Didn’t McCabe walk because 2 GJ failed to indict? I can’t see a DC Jury being fair.

    Consider that you might be wrong about Bill Barr and that things are going exactly as planned. The DS has used up all their ammunition on President Trump, without success. Now they turn to the next person who knows what they have done and is collecting all the evidence. A concerted onslaught against Barr will soon have everyone doubting; maybe they can even get rid of him, they think. You’ve heard the President: game over! Realize that for every one of you that follow politics, there are thousands who need to be educated. This takes time, especially if you want to make sure that everything is strictly legal. Patience, people. We’re closing in on the end.

    He’s hardly a spineless wimp, however I agree he’s succumbing to pressure from the lying conniving dems and their media echo chamber allies.

    Now, I’m not saying this based on the Washington Post report, because I don’t listen to liars. I based it on his comments about POTUS tweets, and what I perceive to be his naive perception of his partisan charges.

    Mr. ‘by the book’ suffers from the same fallacy as Judge Amy Berman Jackson. These people, but from two political sides share the same naive belief; they both naively believe their charges can apply the law neutrally. In this highly partisan day and age one thing has become crystal clear. Democrats have amply demonstrated their strong political beliefs do affect their judgements, whether as prosecutors or jurors.

    That brings us to some of the cases being reviewed now. Take for example the Durham case. Sure, indictments could have been made by now. however, do you think John Durham doesn’t know where his case will be held? Try the highly biased, highly partisan DC Swamp where innocent republicans go to jail and the real criminals get of scot free.

    That is why I will wait and see what happens. I will give him the time to make the most convincing case possible. And if he elects not to indict some of them, I understand, a prosecutor will not indict if they believe their case has little chance. And knowing where these cases are heading, it’s not a good one.

    Off topic, but perhaps another good subject for a blog would be what our options are for correcting the issue of trying cases in highly partisan DC where no republican can get a fair trial, and where the swamp protects itself.

    Barr is rotten to the core, emblematic of the rot he inherited. Remember it was Barr that rewarded the sniper who murdered Vicki Weaver while she was unarmed, holding an infant. Trump is making his job difficult- it’s difficult to perpetuate a culture of lies when your boss is telling the truth!

    Perhaps it played out this way. Barr was in a position of great power, with the President fighting heavy odds, and with many of Barr’s connections amongst those who opposed his boss. There were uncertainties around the impeachment that we must not forget. A widespread betrayal in the Senate was a possibility we all feared.

    William Barr did little. The investigations came to no conclusion. No information was released. It would have been considerable trouble for Barr if the President was successfully impeached with all those inconvenient details in the public domain. Furthermore, he probably calculated that he would play an important after a Senate vote to impeach.

    So he blew his bagpipes and made a few pompous speeches. He’s good at pompous speeches, and he can blow a reasonable bagpipe. He laid low and said little.

    Then, after the Senate acquitted,there came calls for action. In a fury of disappointment the press attacked him. Barr had some catching up to do, and he wasn’t ready for action.

    Now he finds himself between a furious press and an impatient President. Naturally he complains, and naturally he considers his options – because he is of a calculating nature. He can see that the President has a strong chance of another five years in office, with only Bloomberg’s money to prevent that outcome.

    He could resign, and that must be a temptation. Or he could still try to save his friends in the Deep State, which would be dangerous. Otherwise he could get behind the President and become either famous or infamous. Facing him is 3/31. Court cases are blowing off in volleys. Tweets erupt. Maxine wants him to spend the rest of his life on Devil’s Island. Goddamit. A man can’t plot in peace!

    He’s actually going to have to do something, and it seems that’s not what he wanted to do. But part of it has to do with what he very much wants to do. Like everyone, he wants to save himself. Poor Bill Barr, those bagpipes are haunting him.

      +1. Not only that, but does anyone believe Dershowitz would go after any of these bastards given what he’s said on numerous occasions? Dershowitz? Matt Whitaker might have, but no one knows. I don’t believe Barr will seek indictments on any of them. Now his delicate sensibilities? Remember too, Barr pro bono participated in defending fbi murderer Lon Horiuchi. More yet, IF he did, the grand jury pools would likely still be pulled from Mordor who voted like this in 2016: https://www.nytimes.com/elections/2016/results/district-of-columbia. Odds look good to anyone here? Ask this question to Stone, Manafort, Flynn, and others. More still… much of the exculp evidence is already via the lies, texts, even admissions from numerous participants, documented exculp evidence thanks to multiple FOIA actions filed by JW/Tommy Fitton, ACLJ/Jay Sek, and several others. Too bad Giuliani turned it down before the election. Now, who in Mordor will guarantee the handoff?
