        I saw he was Laura last night and I watch her show regularly. I have zero interest in fat boy Barr and his latest interview. I noticed Hannity is back to tick tock announcing a big development in Durham investigation. I’ve lost interest in Durham as well. I just don’t want hear anything from Barr. I’m praying POTUS s*hit cans both he and Wray as soon as possible and we get a real AG.

        And the AG response sends Suspicious Cat immediately to the proverbal Heisenberg Box.

        John PQ citizen goes, “Is Suspicious Cat… ‘Dead or alive?’ “.

        AG goes that depends on whether or not, “The John PQs are asking Rustin Cohle type questions”

        To met me or review my CV, one would not suspect me of such profound alienation from our government,

        Not our country, nor our people,
        My animus is laser focused on the institution endowed with all the power to enforce law, protect our intell, individual rights and political corpus from corruption, penetration and dangers foreign and domestic.

        There could be no betrayal more systemic than the recent conduct of our Bureau/ DoJDSI.

        Burn it down and start over. Sealed & secured away from the swamp’s pervasive network .
        Their primary task is internal investigations & prosecutions,

        And build in bimonthly performance reports directly to the public.

      Barrr is very concerned, okay.
      Pardon me, but I don’t see pompt, effective action to protect our country from Chinese espionage, collaboration and penetration into our academic, financial, and media.

      Consulting and working w universities to tighten up on Chinese grad & post doc students is not my idea of vigorous timely action.

      Neither is saying & doing NOTHING about Sanctuary politicians Decrees that require us to provide illegal immigrants with the full range of benefits , including unemployment and small business loans. WTF?

      Do Little and Sit More: our JD new motto. What use are laws and powers when the DoJ & Courts use I nterpretatations that nullify the spirit and purpose of laws?

      Near as I can tell, our voice and power as citizens has been hijacked Iand replaced by exclusivist proponents of legalism,

      Justice is a fairly obvious standard that laity. almost Instinctively comprehend.. Barr self presents as a reasoned, historically informed individual. His verbalizations are objective, & neutral. But the follow up, the result is missing.

      All I see is a continuance of the pathological syndrome of a corrupted political/ institutional rule,. Same opaquity, footdragging, obscurant language and nitpicking technicalities ,

      Barr’s words are seductive, but hie doesn’t live up to them in his actions.

      There is no room for placating or possibility of reaching consensus with a greedy, complicit network of disassociated power holders.

      During the interview portion aired last night Laura asked him if he has a face mask. He said that he does and wears it going to & from the office and sometimes during the day but most group meetings lately have been via teleconference.
      From what he said he appears to be ready to defend the president’s upcoming plans to reignite the economy next month. He is ready for the legal pushback that will come from the usual suspects on the Left.

      Good news of the day: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been moved out of the intensive care unit of a London hospital where he has been battling coronavirus, a spokesman for the prime minister said Thursday. “The Prime Minister has been moved this evening from intensive care back to the ward, where he will receive close monitoring during the early phase of his recovery,” the spokesman said. “He is in extremely good spirits.”

        Reigniting the economy next month will probably be too late to save the country.

        With how jobs are interdependent we will soon move into a realm were it will take years to come back from the job losses. The “cure” is becoming, if it isn’t already, far worse than the disease. People will be losing healthcare, won’t have money to get food, won’t be able to pay the rent or mortgage, so it will affect just about every aspect of our lives.

            In our impatience we want to think of the swamp as something that needs to be carpet bombed by B-52s. But the truer bomb analogy would be that the deep state is a collection of nuclear bombs, some–maybe all–invisibly networked together… and Team Trump is in the midst of trying to defuse them all at once!

              I’d say it’s rather more like a “war of placement” or “war of position” rather than a “war of maneuver.” A lot happens, actually, but not much beautiful maneuvering. Instead of a Heinz Guderian, or a George Patton, or the “Tiger of Malaya”, Tomoyuki Yamashita, we have the forgotten names of Great War generals who figured out how to slice bits off of the enemy territory, incrementally, while preserving their own men and without the opposing side fully realizing what was up. I’ve forgotten his name, but a German general figured out how to do it. Or think of Grant at Petersburg. The Left has been doing that to us since FDR’s day; it’s how the war is “maneuvered”. Trench warfare. Brutal. Endless. Inch by inch. And in real time. Not glorious, not quick, but it gets the job done.

        Bullshirt. Releasing the documents to the public does Not preclude them from being used in subsequent prosecutions.

        The defendants in such prosecutions already KNOW whats IN the documents; in most cases they WROTE the documents.
        Besides through DISCOVERY they and their defence council would get copies, prior to trial.

        And finally, on the lame (IMHO) excuse of ‘tainting the jury pool’ these are not inflamatory photographs of murder victims, these are government documents.

        And, though you didn’t bring it up;
        The prosecutors and the Grand jurors are sworn to secrecy; witnesses called to testify to grand juries are free to discuss not only the,existence of a grand jury, and that they were called to testify, but in general terms the subjects they were questioned about.

        So, the idea Durham is conducting super secret grand juries, that we don’t know about is ,…unrealistic.

        Given the topic, and that any witness called to testify before a grand jury could probably get $50,000 from a reporter like Solomon or atkinson (the paper would pay) pretty much insures there,ARE NO SUCH GRAND JURIES!

Nevertheless, prosecutors often seek to handcuff grand jury witnesses in their exercise of First Amendment rights by drafting one-sided cooperation agreements or immunity orders that impose obligations of secrecy on grand jury witnesses, even though none exist under governing statutes or rules of criminal procedure.” See INDIANA LAW JOURNAL [Vol. 91:3, p.2]

            They can seek all they want, but given the nature of the alleged grand jury topic of investigation, anyone who would be called as a fact witness, even though NOT a subject, would surely have council, who while they can’t go in with them, CAN advise them, prior to testifying.

            I should think such council would advise HELL NO don’t sign that, they can’t make you!

            I know I would, were I their attorney, or, since I have only ever represented en proper,…including as the subject of a grand jury, I would tell them to stick it where the sun don’t shine.

            Admittedly, if there were,…fact witnesses that COULD be guilty of a crime, and the prosecutor were say, willing to not charge in exchange for testimony,…..

            But usually they will lock that down, by charging, plea bargaining which includes testimony, in order to lock it down.

            Given the topic, and the interest and therefore money, I simply do NOT believe there are grand juries.

        At the end of Dec the Feds arrested the Chinese guy who was smuggling out of the US those 21 vials

        Then on Jan 28 the Harvard Professor is arrested.

        So in order to do that one would think they had to have a FISA warrant surveillance operation underway prior to the Dec 30 arrest right?

        So not trying to go down another rabbit hole but why arrest if there isn’t more there and to this story?

        Oh how I hope this leads back to some of those American elitists we have mentioned numerous times here and wouldn’t it be grand if somehow this led back to some in Congress and even in “another” government agency that we hear from fairly regularly.

    It’s become a chore to watch Laura at all. She books great guests, and then steps all over them in Hannity fashion. It’s as if … well, I don’t know, but she has good people on and either does a dual interview with a counterpoint idiot, or she just talks all over any point being made. Her producer makes sure to stick to the time allowed for a segment, regardless of the news being made in interview… and then they do their BS segments where they laugh and tell stupid TMZ stuff.

      I gotta say, in THIS one on one interview, she did MUCH better than she does on her show, so much so that it made it very much worth watching.
      I don’t know whethervits more time and effort spent in preparation, or not having a producer yelling in her ear about TIME!, but I thought she did a great job, overall, and had great questions.

      There was one point where she stumbled, on that whole Congress and the Courts are shut down, so we basically have at least temporarily lost our Republic, but other than that, I wish she could conduct herself like this on her regular show, …then it would be worth watching.

      As for Barr, he’s like Graham, to me. For the MOST part, sounds great.
      I DID like that he was the first “official” I have heard, verbalise the true PERCIEVED ‘threat’ of this virus; NOT the deaths, but the potential to overwhelm hospitals, and even the broader healthcare system.

      I think it IS obvious that that is the threat, and the stay at home, flatten the curve is intended to avert this threat.

      By focusing on ‘saving every life we can’, we get distracted into focusing on death rates, comparing to the flu, etc.

      PDJT is a Master of Branding, perhaps he made the right decision. But to me, we are NOT shut down to protect ‘vulnerables'( of which I am one) but to protect against this overwhelming of the healthcare system.

      Whether the threat was mispercieved, or overhyped, and whether the shutdown to ‘protect’ the healthcare system was worse than the having the healthcare system overwhelmed are legitimate areas for debate, but first we need to define the terms.

      Anyway, as I say Barr is the first official I have seen express it this way.
      Beyond that, he mostly expressed his ‘concern’ in (generally) the right areas, without referencing any specific actions.

      And, I liked Lauras question and Barrs answer; which is greater threat to our elections, Russia or CHINA.

      His responce, DEFINETLY CHINA. And not JUST as far as election integrity, but across the board CHINA is attacking us.
      Paraphrasing, but thats the gist.

      So, glad,I watched it.

        In an honest experiment, I wish I could replay this interview for individual (just to disrupt their group-think antennae) mainstream media journalists, to get their reactions… whether they would think the questions are too narrow and reflect a political bias, or if they truly do not understand the import of those questions to every citizen, regardless of political party.

        Even though Trump will invariably get attacked on this point by his opponents anyway, IMO there is no way he would have survived this if he went against the coordinated Media/DeepState/Democrat hysteria. That is also why opening up America is going to take a bit longer than I would wish.

        People, citizens must see the that opening of the economy is the only salvation. Trump will lead the way but things must happen at the local level.

      the original CDC death projection model for the US?

      It has been my impression that nobody released an “official” prediction…at least I haven’t seen it. However, there are apparently a lot of models out there, put out by different institutions/people, and quite a few “white paper” scenarios with back of the envelope numbers.

      During the earlier briefings, they were always coy about “how many will die” questions, and once or twice POTUS vaguely referred to bad numbers.

      Last week (or two?) Dr. Birx finally showed a slide saying 1 to 2.2 million (my memory) in the U.S. could die without taking action. She then showed the task force’s predictions, 100K to 240K, and said that it roughly aligned with the independent modeling by IHME (at that time citing 93K?). In both cases, they assumed mitigation (social distancing, etc).

    The quote from the preview of Part 2 of the Barr interview paints him into a rather large corner. Barr has said numerous times to take a case to court there has to be “beyond reasonable doubt”. If he is openly stating what happened to POTUS openly in an interview then I believe Durham has the goods on one or more individuals and he and his team are putting it all together.

    They’ll get crushed if they screw this investigation up and the chances of prosecuting anyone will diminish significantly. We don’t know what Durham and his team knows. But the Deep State are gonna fight back with everything they have. POTUS is going to expect some results. Barr and Durham have to get it right the first time. There won’t be a second chance.

          And you think this tidbit of exculpatory evidence on PapaD, who pled guilty and served his 14 days, is BOUND to lead to perp walks?

          There is FAR more exculpatory evidence for Flynn, and yet they are STILL proceeding with his prosecution.

          I do NOT say we won’t see Justice for the perpetrators, but I do NOT see it coming from Barr/Durham, and I keep track of Fred, in case,I am wrong.

          I think PDJT will have to assert direct control over the FBI and DOJ, which he is certainly capable and legally, not only authorised but I would argue OBLIGATED to do, AFTER the election.

          Before we even get to the inaction on Barr/Durhams part, I start by the fact Barr would not have been confirmed, had McConnell blocked it.

          Look what has happened with Ratcliffe, where McConnell and Graham and Burr blocked his nomination the first time, and so PDJT had to effectively blackmail McConnell, by appointing acting Grinnell, and assigning him Patel.

          McConnell actually assured Barr would be confirmed, and he was. Since I believe McConnell and Ryan were as much ‘in on’ the coup, from its inception as Pelosi and Schumer, and that McConnell has been sending CLEAR messages to the swamp, that he supports the ongoing coverup (or lack of accountability for the coupists, there is NO WAY he would agree to confirm Barr, unless he had ironclad assurances that Barr would NOT hold anyone acvountable.
          Whew, run on sentence!
          Anyway, as I start from that position, all other arguments, for me are secondary.

          I could list all of the ways, through action and inaction, that McConnell has,signalled to the,swamp that he DOES NOT want the coupists held to account.
          But thats,a long list. I’ll just point to making Graham head of Judiciary, and Graham, who met with Barr right after Barr returned from Europe (Debriefing ?) several months ago, has held NO hearings.

          Promises to, but no hearings.
          Example of clear message that,McConnell and Senate Republicons DO NOT want accountability.

          And what Mitch wants, Mitch gets. He assented to confirming Barr, ergo Barr WILL NOT bring ANY accountability.

The GOP intends to restrict vote-by-mail and other legitimate enfranchisement to suppress turnout amid fear, uncertainty and disease.

Without protecting that institution the rest are meaningless. Barr knows this and has said it but youve all ignored it because things werent happening along your fevered timeline.

[Before anyone objects, I am well aware that many of these rights and liberties have indeed been infringed upon. And that the Tenth Amendment seems to have been removed from most Congressional members’ personal constitutions. These is not what I am trying to discuss at this point.]

    2) I hate all the restrictions that have been placed upon US citizens, businesses,and religious and cultural institutions, all in the name of “flattening the curve”. [Don’t get me started on “models”. I have many years of experience as a financial analyst. I can build you a model to do “anything”. As I used to ask my bosses when they asked me to build a model, “What conclusion do you want the model to support – buy? sell? invest?”]

    3a) I live in California, and feel as though our shelter-in-place restrictions are “almost” as bad as any other states, and there are many other things about California that offend my senses.

    3b) Although I was born and raised in California, I am choosing “every day” to remain. My choice. No one else’s. {See #1 above.]

    4) I thought AG Barr did a good job in this interview highlighting how/why President Trump has done a good job of upholding and defending “federalism” – he, POTUS, does things at the federal/US level that are appropriate to do so, and has deferred to states to make decisions regarding how their residents will be affected (i.e. decisions are made closer to the affected persons).

    5) I think President Trump has done a very good maintaining this “federal” distinction, even while many around him (especially MSM) have suggested he take more draconian steps. While he “owns the downside” for his decisions, he is letting states and municipalities “own their own downsides” if they pile on. [Many governors and mayors have done so, and the fallout is yet to be determined.]

    So, back to my original question – why are so many on this thread questioning/attacking AG Barr for not “stopping” state governors, county supervisors, and/or city majors from “doing things”?

    To me, the answer seems obvious – a support of federalism.

    I can be frustrated by the pace of (or lack of) prosecutions against the coup’ists. And at the same time, support AG Barr for his support of, and defense of, President Trump.

      Federalism as our Constitution provides for it envisions a federal government with limited powers, but State governments with wider police powers. That is true.

      The Constitution does, however, forbid even State and Local Tyrants from interfering with their citizens’ freedoms. The 14th Amendment made the bulk of the Bill of Rights applicable to, i.e. limits upon, the States’ power to infringe their citizens’ liberties. More broadly, the Constitution “guarantees” to each State a “republican form of government.” It forbids Governors from converting their States into totalitarian police states simply because “public health” officials say that is “necessary” to fight a virus.

      Apart from the protections of citizens’ liberties, the Constitution envisioned the State and Federal governments acting in their own spheres, and taxing their respective voters/constituents to pay for it. Citizens who wanted big State government with lots of health care, educational and other social spending would have to pay for it. Citizens who wanted small State governments would have far less to pay.

      What we have now is a perversion of federalism. It is FEDERAL taxpayers who are funding State and Local Tyrants’ in their assaults on their citizen’s freedom. Not one of these State dictators issued a draconian stay at home, etc edict UNTIL POTUS declared a National Emergency and provided them virtually unlimited federal funding for their “management” of the crisis.

      What we are witnessing now is a form of “federalism” alien to our entire Constitutional rubric.

  34. Laura Ingraham is a Lawyer, interviewing a Lawyer named Bill Barr….Lawyers protect Lawyers especially politically connected Lawyers….I still can’t believe people can’t or refuse to to see the obvious elephant in the room….

    There’s a reason 40% of the Politicians are Lawyers…The bankers pay the politician Lawyers to sell their poison to the voters, in turn the Bankers fund the Politician Lawyers campaigns…The Lawyer Politicians defend their decisions which defend the Bankers…

    How is it that a profession that represents around 1-2% of the population is comprised of 40+% of Congressional representation??? The numbers don’t add up…Just like the CDC fake models that can change as the wind blows….

    We are a Country run by Lawyers…..Corrupt Lawyers and activist Judges…That’s the Elephant in the room….

    Call me naive, but P T could do a “heck” of a lot worse than A/G Barr.

    The truth about Barr’s successes and failures in prosecuting serious past criminal activity including the Obama admins spying on Trump and his campaign, the FISA fiascoes etc will be determined in the next few months. But A/G Barr has successfully narrowed the range that the “Resistance” can attack Trump. One example is his directive that the perpetual anti Trump SDNY prosecutors must check with him before taking any action against the Trump admin. (or similar demand or wording).

    In protecting P Trump from further malicious prosecutions in other ways as well, Barr has forced the “Resistance” to use insider traitors and anti Trumpers in his own admin to attack him. Barr is powerless to prevent fake whisleblowers in the admin from stepping up and presenting false accusations but he has investigated all their allegations and cleared his Boss in the DOJ in all instances including the call to the Ukraine.

    Barr also cleared his boss regarding Obstruction allegations after the Weissmann SC report was released. These and other efforts should not be forgotten or under appreciated. Barr was powerless to stop the House from impeaching P Trump. Only the Senate could do that. My opinions are often swayed by my mood and my mood today is one of patience and appreciation for what A/G Barr will do soon and what he’s done in the past for P Trump.

      I think Barr has done a lot to protect Trump. Hopefully, Barr comes through on this “excesses” of the DeepState. While being a member of such, I think he can also see that it has metastasized and will rectify that.

      “…All public and private gatherings of any size are prohibited,” Whitmer said at a news conference. “People can still leave the house for outdoor activities,” and outdoor “recreational activities are still permitted as long as they’re taking place outside of six feet from anyone else…

      …People will still be able to travel to other residences outside the state, but not to cottages or vacation rentals inside the state, the order says….”

    If we can criticize we can commend too and Barr has just had the best 24 hours of his tenure. Something big is in the works. Disparage, yes; but never has the man come across as a fool. Always remember Sundance describing Upchuck as “ashen” exiting his first meeting with the new A G.
