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.

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?

  5. I think that it’s wildly inappropriate … first of all, to seriously consider anything that The Washington Post ever publishes.

    Based only on an alleged comment which I actually think is rather fair … here we are, drumming the man out of office and debating on his replacement. As though any of us really have any notion what it means to be Attorney General of the United States in these times. We don’t.

    Barr agreed to return to the post, and he very plainly knew what he was getting himself into. I don’t think that anybody can be “politically popular” and do this job the way it vitally needs to be done. You know perfectly well that you have been tasked to be the captain of an organization that is known to be internally corrupt … but you accepted the position nonetheless. And you certainly didn’t do it for the money or for the prestige. I think that we should count ourselves very fortunate that this man said “yes.”

    The Washington Post rightly fears this man for who he is and what he is doing. They will say absolutely anything at all to try to shame him and to drive him out.

    I think that the comment which Mr. Barr allegedly made is actually, as I said, “rather fair.” The President isn’t going to stop tweeting, but the two of them can work out a private agreement as to what he will tweet on certain matters. And, they don’t have to discuss that agreement with any of us.

      About 15 years ago I was convinced that the Wall Street Journal had misunderstood the argument about illegal immigrants. They kept saying people on the right were against immigration . No matter how many times they were told that people were against “illegal”immigration but not immigration, they never seemed to understand. Finally, of course, I began to understand.

      I’m getting the same feeling here wrt your Barr argument. You write that Barr might have a point about Trump’s tweets and that they can/should discuss it in private. But I haven’t seen where you address the fact that Barr already made it public.

    No so fast with the much more influential broadcast media because they are bestowed limited and highly valued bandwidth owned by a much-too gracious public.

    That has to change.

    Therefore, I would like to see our president invoke a “Trump Broadcast Media Doctrine” which states, as I’ve paraphrased from Sundance’s “Trump Doctrine” synopsis presented here earlier:

    “The nature of the Trump broadcast media policy doctrine, as it should become visible, is to hold manipulative influence agents accountable for regional and national impact(s); and simultaneously work to stop any corrupted influence from oppressing free expression of national values held by the subservient, dis-empowered, people within our nation being influenced.”

    Okay, one more time. Bill Barr is attempting to do exactly what Trump appointed him to do, subdue the Get Trump faction of the Establishment. Trump did not pick Barr. He did not interview a number of potential candidates for the job. He went to George HW Bush’s funeral and came back with a new AD, Bill Barr, an Establishment fixer from way back. His job has always been to get the Get Trump faction to stand down and stop attacking Trump and his associates. The Establishment will then use more subtle political methods to block the Trump agenda. Trump, who cares nothing for politics and wants to get his economic and its attendant security agenda passed, accepted the help of the Establishment faction who put forth Barr to accomplish this. So, a year after Barr assumes the position of AG, not only are Trump and his associates being actively attacked by the Get Trump faction, something that Barr was supposed to stop, he has had to face a bogus political impeachment. Trump’s tweets on that subject and Roger Stone are sending a clear message to Barr. Get the job done, that Trump was promised, or Trump will handle it himself. He is not so subtly pushing Barr to do his job.

    If Barr doesn’t start prosecuting some big fish soon – for whatever reason – It will be clear that the corruption of the deep state is so widespread and so entrenched that the only way to nail them is through a top-secret military sweep; trusted units will have to lock down all the major agencies simultaneously. Servers, computers, phones and paper files will have to be secured instantly to prevent any hammering, washing with bleach, or selling to hostile actors. The personnel will all have to get a “don’t communicate with anyone and don’t leave town” order, or it’s off to Gitmo.

    Would it be legal? Constitutionally no, but did the framers even consider the possibility of such large scale sedition within the nation’s most powerful institutions? Call it a rescue mission, a coup or a purge – don’t mince words – but get the job done and then step back with the warning that if any (surviving) or like-minded traitors resurface, the purge will be repeated.

    Odds are, Trump fires Barr before Barr quits, and we get some back-and-forth (like the Bolton stuff) where one side says the other side is being untruthful. (Bolton was fired.)

    The problem Barr has is that he is now in the unenviable position of having to out his good pal, Bob Mueller, as a fraud. Not only was the Russia probe fraudulent, but Mueller’s appointment was based on a fraud perpetrated on Trump by Comey, McCabe, and Rosenstein. The final, illegal, FISA renewal was signed off by Mueller’s team. There were several dubious prosecutions that resulted from the Mueller probe. There is the “Wikileaks Problem” documented here at CTH and elsewhere. What happens if it becomes known that the Russians did not “hack” the DNC servers or provide Wikileaks with the emails, especially after Mueller/Weissman stated it so decisively? All this assumes he is at all interested in getting to the real bottom line, which is debatable.

    Then, you have the problem of corruption within the DOJ as an active, weaponized, army deployed against him and Trump. Yet, Barr goes on TV and says without a trace of irony or sarcasm, “We love all our prosecutors.” Even the ones who lied to him and sent an absurd and cruel sentencing recommendation while displaying yet another Progressive shit-show of moral preening and sanctimony by “resigning in protest”. That’s easy for Barr to knock down. “I was told one sentencing recommendation was going forward. A completely different one was submitted which was cruel and excessive. I was lied to. If the people responsible want to quit, I say don’t let the door hit you on the ass on your way out. Good riddance. I noticed a few of them did not quite the Department. I feel like this is cowardly, and I hope they consider actually resigning instead of show-boat fake resigning.”

    Like I wrote the day Barr first complained about Trump: this is a problem Barr has 100% control over because he has the authority to release all the texts, emails, documents, declassify them, remove all the redactions, etc. It’s why the idea that this play by the Stone prosecutors is so stupid. They issued a ridiculous sentencing recommendation, lied about it, and then quit and ran when confronted. That is easy to slap down…if you are motivated to slap it down.

    I think Trump should tell Barr to put up or shut up by June 1st. If, by June 1st, there is not measurable progress towards prosecuting the seditious conspiracy, Trump is going to gather every text, every document, every email at the DOJ that is currently being withheld, redacted, classified, etc…and post all of it on the White House web site. I would release them on 2 week intervals all the way through November.

    The problem for the Democrats with the DNC/Wikileaks wasn’t that it was fake. It’s that it was true. Once people learned what the Clintonistas and DNC thought of them, Hillary’s support started to implode. Trump should just “Wikileak” all of the DOJ, FBI and CIA communications and game on.

        Lol, I’d take it yesterday. But I recall Barr saying in December that he thought Durham would reach a watershed moment by the Spring of this year. I’m willing to take Barr at his word and give Durham time to produce the goods by 6/1. After that? Write an Executive Order directly the DOJ to declassify and release all of the documentation Sundance has been listing on CTH in 2 week intervals. Either that information confirms what we all believe we already know, or it refutes it. But the best way to know is to just release it.

        I’ve accepted as a given that the Government Party is incapable of policing itself. Therefore, the only real solution is 100% unfiltered disclosure of everything. That’s really what they fear the most…that the public finds out who they are, what they did / are doing, and why.

        You can already hear them trying to tell people “Oh, it’s all so complicated!” Yeah, no. It’s actually pretty easy: The CIA, FBI and DOJ conspired to frame Pres. Trump for high treason using faked documents, illegal search warrants, and a phony investigation to try and force an impeachment or resignation.

        That plot failed, and we have proof.

          He can also order them declassified NOW, however, bear-in-mind, the IC will take FOREVER to declassify them…….probably until after the election…………the bass-turds. But at least the President will already have the hard copies. I do not believe they can legally deny him them.

          PDJT does not have to release them unless he “wants or needs to”.

    I believe it got personal with Barr when he saw how much his fellow swamp pal, Mueller was being exploited.
    As many have posted above, Barr cleaned the Mueller mess up quickly and by summarizing the report the public (enough of the sane public) made up its mind and supported that Trump was innocent and unfairly investigated.
    Barr orchestrated how the public was notified and notice Rosenstien supported all Barr’s conclusions. Barr is very capable when he’s motivated to be that’s clear.
    That was no small feat when you think back to the climate with Trump wanting to fire Rosenstien at one time. Trump associates and family being questioned for days by these Gustapo like investigators. It was hell for Trump, family, friends, and many of his associates.
    Barr came in because he saw the injustice and even for him, I think he thought they were going too far.
    Barr saw his frail friend being used and that may have been a major reason he was willing to step in. Barr protected Mueller in this whole process.
    I would love to know who knew Mueller was in such a poor condition when he was appointed. Comey and Rosentein for sure!!! They are scum but, they were desperate not to get exposed. All these people running our government when the threat of being caught are acting like a bunch of weasels. At least back in the day they would kill themselves. Kinda kidding…
    I bet the way Barr got it resolved initially Trump thought Barr was THE MAN.
    Fast forward now Trump has had to deal with impeachment and digest even more classified information that this coup was very organized and involved the upper echelons of government officials.
    Trump also knows Barr knows how to deal with this quagmire, but may not be willing to do it the way Trump wants it done. Say Trump wants them all exposed and Barr doesn’t?! Haha just a guess. Trump sees the writing on the wall now that Barr’s excuses and too much time has passed.
    Barr helped Trump and could possibly protect him from the next assault, depending on how strong the Obama faction still is.
    Also remember during the whistleblower report it did get to DOJ and they determined Trump did nothing wrong. Another example of Barr not supporting the dirty work by the Obama faction.
    I believe Barr is not the man to address this treason and corruption the way Trump expects and the country deserves. Should Barr go, depends on if he’s truly a positive gatekeeper to stop future coups.
    Remember people like Barr know how to play both sides and many times aren’t truly vested in either.
    I don’t believe Barr can be categorized as for or against Trump. Some actions indicate he’s benefiting Trump. The other thing is we do not know how many other fires Barr has put out that could have caused Trump more headaches. The public certainly doesn’t know everything.
    I don’t believe Barr was caught unaware regarding the sentence on Stone, I think those attorneys were being shown the door, so they tried to save face by acting like they were leaving under protest.
    Barr probably had already outed them
    I am not a fan of Barr but, am ambivalent about whether Trump would be better off without him.

        Just because Barr is part of the deep state does not mean Trump did not benefit at least short term, appointing him.
        Barr is no longer delivering for Trump so Trump is getting frustrated with him.
        This is not a black and white issue. So many of these deep state players will play for either and/or both teams simultaneously.
        You can’t say Trump didn’t know what he was getting into when he appointed Barr.
        Trump is smart enough to use them and when he sees they are hurting him more then helping him get rid of them.
        Trump is a master at figuring out how to exploit these fools and if he can benefit from keeping Barrr he will, that’s the message Trump has been sending.
        Barr’s response indicates he’s done. To complain about tweeting that’s Barr’s way of saying he’s not going to be helping Trump any longer.
        I disagree that Trump was fooled by Barr!
        Several months into his presidency Trump caught on to how corrupt everyone was and proceeded with that in mind.
        Don’t forget when he tweeted Obama wipe tapped his campaign and was made fun of by all of media for it!!

    The President isn’t making Barr’s job harder, it is the other way around. Barr is making the President’s job harder. Barr is forcing President Trump to defend the powers granted to him by the Constitution. Barr seems to be operating under the ludicrous assertion put forth by Democrats that the AG and DOJ are independent of the President, when the Constitution says that the President is the chief law enforcement officer. Neither the position of AG nor the Department of Justice were created by the US Constitution. They exist only to aid POTUS in his constitutional mandate to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.

    When the four lawyers on the Roger Stone case lied to him Barr should have immediately fired them for insubordination. He had a perfect opportunity to assert his authority and he blew it. It is the corrupt, seditious underlings at the DOJ that are making Barr’s job harder, not his boss President Trump.

      1-15-2019 Clairvoyant Diana West:

      “ In the final pages of Compromised, Terry Reed writes that in 1992, several years after working with CIA-connected Robert Johnson, he made the “miraculous find” that “Robert Johnson” was also William P. Barr.

      Yes, that William P. Barr, Donald Trump’s Attorney General [who likely ] pledged deep enough fealty to an unelected and unaccounatble super-dirty super-cop and Barr best friend, Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

      Ironically, Barr’s tenure as Bush ‘41 AG was noteworthy for his aversion to “special counsels,” and he earned himself the title “Cover-up General” from William Safire….

      Barr vanished from Washington’s radar. Then, 28 years later, Trump nominated Barr to be his AG, the most critical cabinet slot in his Swamp-besieged presidency.

      Would that a US Senator ask William P. Barr under oath if he ever was known to anyone under the alias “Robert Johnson.”

      Of course, even if Barr is if not also “Robert Johnson,” even if he is *only* a George “New World Order” Bush-retread, my deep concern is that he is nonetheless the ringer of all ringers, another Deep Stater foisted on/welcomed aboard by Donald Trump.

      US law enforcement aside: a “fixer” for Bushworld, that vast, submerged continent of the Swamp, does not seem like the man to Drain the Swamp for President Trump and We, the Deplorables.

        I kind of thought that was a deep state set-up, to make it look like Barr was on Trump’s side, like he would be a good pick and someone who could clean up the mess, when all along he was a deep state plant to cover up the coup (after all, Barr is/was CIA and spent his entire career covering for the intelligence agencies). That’s why I don’t really think words matter–its that actions that count. Sometimes (lots of times) they just use words to play us and as cover.

    Trump couldn’t get Ratcliffe elected as DNI because the swamp (Senate) was afraid and justifiably so. They were not afraid of Barr and for good reason.

    Some of Barr’s “accomplishments”:
    1. Ensured not a single coup plotter is indicted and goes on book tours and TV to trash our President.
    2. Reprimanded our President for tweeting and making your job so much harder.
    3. Gone out of your way to block any and all efforts at transparency and making Judicial Watch sue your Department and the FBI for information, but at least you still redact significant information out when you are forced to reveal any information.
    4. In your endless wisdom and intelligence far above us plebes declared “Epstein killed himself”
    5. Made sure that the DOJ and FBI can keep lying about basic facts in the Flynn case.
    6. Publicly lauded FBI director Wray for the wonderful job his doing.

    The only real solution is landslide election on Nov 3 for President Trump and majority House and Senate with enough margin so that we can elect someone outside of the swamp as AG and FBI director. Barr worked at the CIA for cryin’ out loud, his wife is best friends with Mueller’s, etc.

    Here’s my take on what’s happening.

    Like most others, I’m highly skeptical of the job that AG Barr is doing. Although, there ARE lots of other DOJ actions happening right now. I just don’t know if they are playing a masterful game of deceit in order to buy the time they need for investigations to be complete, or AG Barr is a master fixer for the Deep State.

    I think several things may be going on here:
    1. Barr may be complaining about the President’s tweets because President Trump is shining the light on all the misdeeds of the Justice Department.
    2. Or, Barr may be complaining in order to distance himself from the President to give the appearance of more independence in these matters — which serves them both well.
    3. Or, the President may be tweeting as much as he is, because he’s frustrated that AG Barr hasn’t done more to clean things up and he’s putting pressure on him to act.

    It’s all terribly frustrating to see the wheels of justice fall off the rails or take so long it will not be meaningful.

    There is an old Tsung Tsu axiom that when you know you are strong, give the enemy the appearance you are weak. By doing so, it emboldens the enemy with over confidence which leads them to attack prematurely, and then they realize to late, they have become embedded into a trap.

    The Deep State traitors are on the attack, because Barr appears to be weak. He has schmoozed Rosenstein, Wray, and even his old friend Mueller, so they feel they are safe and comfortable and outside his reach.

    But Barr knows who the culprits are and what each of their roles were in the coup and the coverup, and I believe he will put the Constitution above the corruption of the institutions he loves. He knows that there is enough public information available that the public knows what took place, and who was involved that it is impossible for his to sweep it all under the rug, without implicating himself in a cover up the Spygate scandal.

    The Deep State is panicking because so many of them are lashing out. It is hilarious how they have exposed themselves. By merely signing a letter against Barr, they identify who they are and that they are part of the Deep State that sets them up for investigation to see what roles they played in the coup and/or the cover up. The Deep Staters are truly stupid people. They have gotten away with their corruption for so long, believing that what they were doing was actually normal, that they no longer realize there behavior is seditious and treasonous.

    At the end of the day, I still believe Barr will come through, and actually save this nation from internal destruction of the country we love and as we know it.

    Trump survived the impeachment (IHMO) for two reasons: (a) it was obviously a coup and carried the possibility of a real hot Civil War II and (b) the GOP made a deal with Trump.

    So, remembering Julius Caesar, trump should divide and conquer his enemies. Do not attack the GOP establishment, they are mostly after all in for the money, otherwise they are fine country club folks.

    If/when AG Barr resigns-by-incoming-tweets, my thought was to appoint an Acting AG. Linked is CRS article entitled “Who Can serve As Acting Attorney General” which is a result of the ensuing battle fight that occurred when POTUS assigned Whitaker as Acting AG.

    Excerpt:

    Conclusion
    The appointment of acting officials to serve as principal officers poses an important constitutional
    question that concerns the proper division of authority between the political branches—and implicates a
    potentially difficult question regarding the interaction of two statutes. Whether these questions will be
    resolved in the courts, however, is unclear. As mentioned above, the State of Maryland has challenged the
    appointment of Whitaker as Acting AG in ongoing litigation. Suits by other parties are possible, so long
    as those parties have standing under Article III of the Constitution to challenge Whitaker’s appointment.
    Senate confirmation of a new AG could render any pending challenges to Whitaker’s appointment moot,
    leading to the dismissal of suits raising these questions. Ultimately, Congress enjoys considerable
    authority to enact legislation altering the method of appointment for acting officials, although any such
    bill must comport with the Appointments Clause.

    The current DAG is James Rosen, formerly of Kirkland & Ellis. IMO just another empty suit like Barr who would be just as lost as Barr in handling the situation. Totally outside their realm.

    Hence lies the rub.

      mtg50, IMHO you are incorrect about the drivers behind Sundance’s post.

      Sundance has been VERY consistent about presenting evidence of severe wrongdoing – even criminal lawbreaking – by employees in the DOJ, FBI, Senate and elsewhere in the DC federal govt.

      Since Barr was appointed & approved with little delay, he has had repeated opportunities to correct severe INjustices begun before his tenure, and injustices that have occurred since then.

      But Barr has not changed the course of a single injustice, save one – ending the Mueller sham investigation. As a result of Barr’s inactions, several victims of DOJ prosecutor malfeasance and zealotry have suffered and continue to suffer.

      Also the President continues to be maligned by his political enemies using smears and lies that could have been stopped, had many documents (that Sundance has repeatedly listed in many articles posted here and on Twitter) been declassified and made public.

      There is even a short list of classified documents that the President himself had mentioned that he wanted to be exposed, and he gave that authority to the AG – who showed his thanks by doing nothing but continue to let the DemonRATs and Media’s lies obstruct and hound the President.

      So you see, there is far more to Sundance’s accumulated frustration and impatience with AG William Barr than what you listed.

    His statement about the tweets making it impossible to do his job, translated to me, ONLY if he considers his job to quietly make it all go away.
    If even remotely close, he needs to go.

      A Freudian slip you’re saying. That’s possible, or strategic, or Barr simply can’t stand all the tweeting haha.
      I think Trump has to love how he controls the media narrative. MSM and everyone else that’s really supporting Trump have alternative theories on why Barr complained about Trump’s tweeting.
      Trump is winning as long as he’s being talked about and his tweets garner more interest and media coverage then the democrat primaries!!!
      The free entertainment alone is reason enough to vote for Trump!!!!
      The man is one of a kind!
      Melanie knew he would win, now I see why!!
      Trump as president is the best reality show ever!!!!

    Folks, please understand if Barr resigns PT MUST follow the rules of the Vacancy Act to select a temporary AG.

    The 4 options are listed below

    Designations Under the Vacancies 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.

    (4) via recess appointment

    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.

    If he goes with option 1, the selection is Rosen who is currently #2 behind Barr as DAG

    Option 3 means he picks either the AAG who is #3 in line behind Barr or US Attorney EDVA Who is #4 behind Barr.

    And option 4 is out based on this and the fact McConnell will never allow PT a recess appointment,

    So IMO PT best option is OPTIN #2, the President may direct an officer who is occupying a different advice and consent position to perform these tasks;

    1) And my suggestion is take Munchin who already has advise and consent approval to temporarily run the DOJ in a dual role of Treasury AND temporary DOJ. Why because Treasury is getting the Secret Service and also the ability to investigate money laundering. They go hand in hand.

    2) Additionally 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 provides 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, new rule #1……………

    NEVER LISTEN OR ACCEPT A RECOMMENDATION BY LINDSEY OR MCCONNELL EVER AGAIN,

      I guess if you’re gonna dream, dream big. If Trump wins a second term it’s gonna be squeaky like his first. 90% in DC didn’t vote for him, nor Romney, nor McStain, nor Bush#2 etc. He has no friends in that cesspool and the ones that seem to be are really good actors. The USSAs demographics and non stop flooding of 3rd worlders will make any national election close no matter who his opponent is. Hell they could clone Pol Pot and half the country would vote for him because “orange man bad”. I’m betting they blow up the stock market to slay evil Trump in the end hence I wish the president wouldn’t of wrapped that anchor so tightly around his neck.

    If Bill Barr thinks it’s been tough to do his job with Trump’s tweets maybe he should think what it’s been like for Trump to do his job with a attempted coup by The dept of justice, FBI, etc.
    Maybe if Barr did his job Trump wouldn’t have to tweet so much.

    We have to understand that some of the motivation of the the Bureaucratic Staters is not simply a conviction that we need their direction to lead ideologically “moral” lives, it’s more prosaic than that. When all your friends and social groupings are Deepies and UniParty you don’t get Bar- B -Que invitations if you set out to destroy their grip on a formerly fairly free nation. All of them are on the taxpayer’s teat in one way or another.
    Potential social isolation is a great motivator.

    It’s good for Trump that Barr is under attack from all sides. He might become more malleable to Trump’s wishes then. I agree with our host, this is just the Swamp and Deep State squirming at the pressure, through media mouthpieces. When McConnell bounced into view nodding agreement, that was confirmed.

    He’s your boy, Mitch. If he quits, it’ll be on you to find a suitable replacement, to cover this all up. Good luck. Trump doesn’t seem to care either way right now.

    I doubt Trump fires him ’til after the election, but he can privately tell him that there are lots of lawyers around, should Barr decide to leave.

    No big deal here, as Trump’s statements seem to agree on. He agrees Barr has a tough job, but that his tweets are an important tool, then he gave him the infamous “vote of confidence”. We’ll see what happens.

    This narrative change has sure spun up the troops.

    The media has pulled a “SHOOT THE MESSENGER” tactic… Redirect the attention away from what they know is important onto something else…

    How about — attacking the AG Barr PERSONALLY – IMPUNE HIS INTEGRITY – MAKE SHIT UP…..

    Attack Trump… Try to START A FIGHT AS A DIVERSION…. AVERT EVERYONE’S GAZE……

    Anything to get the attention away from the important stuff… The corruption of the DNC, stealing of democrat primary, failure to indict known criminals, the list is huge… Impeachment did not work…

    I’m against immigration. All of it.

    We’re full. Driving in areas that were once deserted in my youth is now more vexing than a trip to the DMV. LEGAL immigration has destroyed the entire region where I was born and raised–turned it into an appendage of a foreign country. My state is next. And unless we want to be like China soon with 100-mile traffic jams and people living elbow-to-elbow we need to cut off the spigot.

    We once considered 250,000 LEGAL immigrants annually to be mass/wave level. Under Bush we hit 1.9 MILLION in one year. That’s LEGAL not illegal. If that doesn’t qualify as mass immigration then nothing ever will.

    We’ve got a BIG problem, and it’s driven by this death pact of endless legal immigration we were suckered into in 1965. Count me out.

    Immigration has to be viewed 100+ years from now based on what we do today. It’s long past time to stop it. As it stands, I’ve proudly (and sadly) been the lone voice crying in the wilderness since the 70s. I haven’t been heard–nor I do I expect that to change in my lifetime.

    Im starting to think its true. Barr IS telling people close to Trump that he wants him to stop tweeting or else he will resign.

    I think PT has gotten the notion that Barr isnt going to do what needs to be done, so he’s keeping up the pressure.

    Then this morning’s tweetstorm is darn near proof, in my opinion, considering it came right after the rumor of Barr threatening to resign over his tweeting.

    This is the beginning of the public rift between PT and his AG. PTs tweets will get more and more blunt and direct at Barr, just like they did at Jeff Sessions.

    I mean, he just accused a sitting Senator of violating the Logan Act, dealing with our sworn enemy Iran no less, and said “Must be dealt with strongly!”

    Who do you think hes talking to there? Gotta be the AG and the DOJ that would take up that case, right?

    So what is Barr gonna do now?

    PT might be thinking, what the hell do I have to lose? No AG at all is better than an AG that is only helping cover everything up. Might as well put Whitaker back in as Acting and that will get me past the election.

    • Barr worked for the CIA. His wife is best friend’s with Muller’s. His father was closely associated with Epstein.

      How can we expect someone from the swamp to clean up the swamp?

      It simply will not happen. (I’d love to be proven wrong on this!)

      We have a great president because he is not one of “them”, he is one of “us”. And I don’t mean Republican, I mean he is from outside of the swamp.

      After hopefully landslide wins on Nov 3rd, we will get someone outside of the swamp as AG and FBI director. Only then will we get true justice delivered.
