  1. Trust should be earned not by “sincere” words, but by actions and results.

    President Trump has delivered no so many fronts.

    Barr has not indicted a single swamp critter, even though here on CTH we have known evidence of crimes (lying under oath, etc.) for years.

    Judge people on their actions and results, not on their words.

      Bill Barr should change his name to Bill Beta Cuck. his dismissal was a disgrace. He protected the doj FBI CIA and judge from exposure. And here is the funny part. His uniparty buddies are trashing his name and calling him corrupt. He is being portrayed as Trump’s sock puppet. And Bill Beta Cuck is willing to be called that to protect his uniparty buddies. He is so corrupt that he is protecting the same people who hate him. What a loser! What a snivelling wimp. Obama should keep his mouth shut and thank Bill Beta Cuck at the next uniparty meeting.

            The reality is not a single % of you is in the same shoes as Mr. Barr. Bill Durham up there needs to back off the quarantine cocktails and relax. Flynn was not only exonerated in full but the reasons why are on full display. I don’t know where attacking Mr. Barr personally or professionally serves a purpose. Flynn was a win. Let’s see what Ms. Powell can do to enact justice on the heavy handed thugs that brought all this about.

              Thank you, ILOT. Your post makes the most sense to me so far.

              I might add that words do have power, otherwise there would be no sense in reading CTH articles and commenting on this site. Very true that trust has to be earned, but how one speaks to others, including media, does make a difference.

              Think about it, please, fellow Treepers. What is a dossier? Words. What is the media made up of? Words. What is advertising? Words. What do campaigns use? More words (both on the Left and the Right). Words give messages. What happens next is partly up to those on the receiving end of those messages.

              If words didn’t matter, communists wouldn’t work so hard to propagandize. Barr, and others in this administration, can use words to make a difference. Certainly our POTUS has done so, and with superb strategy. In fact, looks to me like a big difference was just made.

              While I’m not in a hurry to stick up for Barr, there is a lot we don’t know. We don’t have ALL the facts. Just a lot of facts.

              I think you need to brush up on your reading comprehension skills:

              1. Nowhere did I or other poster say we were in the same shoes as Bil Barr. None. We said a small % of ourselves aligned with Mr. Bill Durham’s comments.

              Flynn was not exonerated in full. Charges were dropped. There are still two sides to the story being floated. Until only one sid, the truth can be floated and backed, he’s not exonerated. And yes, it does matter how the media presents it and how those who tried to frame him present it on the news. Why? Because half the country thinks this was a political play by the President and his cronies. And whether or not you want to believe it or not- that matters when it comes to exoneration.

              2. Bill D’s original comments, despite him calling Barr names, is spot on. Barr’s buddies are calling him names. Saying this is a partisan political play. Barr is being called out by those around him, including the media. And, despite what you may think (and as I said in point 1) the media controls the narrative- just look at this whole COVID19 mess. Bill Barr has done not much in the way of making people pay a price for breaking the law. At least not yet.

              The actions to drop the charges are a step in the right direction. But, just because a step was taking it doesn’t necessarily mean that major players will be held to account. I am a little more confident that something happens but I’m not confident it will be the people we need to be held accountable- Hillary, Obama, the Senators, the Reps, the agency managers, and the FBI/DOJ members involved.

              None of those big names will go down. None. The story will be pained to show they had their hand in the mess but not enough to implicate them….can’t arrest Senators and Reps.

        Barr has only been in office for about 15 months. We know that the wheels turn slowly, but he has done quite a bit in that time.

        His first and immediate issue to address was Mueller. He promptly got onto that, and brought to an end. That effectively took until August. He has appointed Durham to look at the predicate for the spying, and extended it to cover events after that, and to extend it into a Criminal Investigation.

        He has had to assist the President with the faux impeachment, and the DOJ made a number of reports on no wrongdoing by the President in connection with Ukraine.

        Then he has been looking at the Flynn case, and I suspect the others charged by Mueller. Sydney Powell, in January, said that the DOJ was the source for the new evidence behind her first b0mbshell filing of this year. Everything she has got, has been given to her under the direction of Barr.

        Barr has done quite a lot, in what, by justice standards, is not that long. Everyone is rightly frustrated because nothing was done by Sessions, or Whitaker, but this is being laid at Barr’s feet, when it is simply unfair to do so.

        Barr has an extremely difficult job. I consider that people are being naive in underestimating the difficulties that face him in his job. I do not know whether he will deliver, we will have to wait and see, but personally I think that he is being prematurely, and, at this stage, unfairly condemned, by many on this site.

        And IF that happens, I would really give all the praise to Barr and you.

        But hear me out for a moment. What makes you think that Barr does this? And PLEASE don’t use what he “said”. What in his track record of ACTIONS and RESULTS showed that he EVER went after the swamp.

        The exact opposite is true. He stopped justice from being applied to an FBI shooter. Read up on Ruby Ridge.

        THAT is his track record. That he worked for the CIA is also part of his track record (I personally do not trust lawyers or CIA, they are both trained to lie convincingly).

        Stop believing people just because of hope or just because they say things you agree with. Look at actions and results, otherwise you are being bullsh’tted all day long.

        President Trump has proven through both actions and results that we can trust him. Also, he produced great results already in the private sector.

        We need fewer smooth talkers (lawyers) and more people of action that actually will deliver what they promise.

      Barr & Durham should set their sights as high as possible to wherever and whomever it leads. Dot all “t’s” and cross all “i’s.”

        Take Mueller as a comparison.
        He took about 6 months to get up and rolling before indicting Flynn.
        He didn’t wait until he had proof against Trump before he indicted Flynn. Or anybody else. Those indictments were used to try and force people to roll over on Trump.

        Take the NR McCarthy as a counter example.
        He waited until he had everything sewn up before indicting people.
        He brags that the plea agreements lay out the entire case against everyone else.

        I am sure the real world is going to fall somewhere in between those examples.
        Nobody has yet rolled over on the Clinton Crime family despite decades of investigations. It is going to be hard to sew up this case with guilty pleas.
        But this bunch of doofuses have documented their misbehavior. And they have been hiding that via redactions. It will be easy to prove guilt for many of them.

        I am tired of years of hearing that lame excuse that it must always be done the McCarthy way to explain why first Sessions then Rosenstein then Barr and now Durham haven’t acted. Sessions and Rosenstein never tried. Rosenstein was a significant player against Trump. Yet we were telling each other to wait for the plan. Rosenstein’s plan was to impeach Trump, not jail Brennan and Comey.

        Barr and Durham can still act. But you are making excuses for them already. Why wasn’t Durham doing a criminal investigation at the start? There was more than enough publicly available information.

        Time will tell. And that is what worries me. It won’t be long before Democrats claim this is all intended to help Trump win. Luckily Barr seems resistant to that pressure. But it will get worse. Much worse at convention time and after.

        And should it be delayed, even just by taking time to make a perfect case, and Trump loses, there will never be justice served on these political criminals.

        Luckily, the dam has finally broken and some truth has started to come out. The country needs all the truth. And it needs it now.

      The FBI should have it.

      And backups.

      And NSA.

      My rookie guess is that the illegal fabrication, the changes, from version 1 (original) to version 2 is so dramatic, that’s why they’ve hidden it.

      Which would at least implicate Strzok, Page, McCabe, Baker, & Comey in felony lying, misrepresentation, falsifying evidence, destruction of evidence (destroyed cell phones & emails), & Conspiracy?

      Read his chapter on revenge, and watch his eyes at the W.H. correspondents dinner when P44 mocked him, and again watch his expression when HRC was with a Cardinal at some function or other prior to the election.

      Nunes has no declassification power. He’s presently stuck heading only the minority on the House Intel Committee, which has no subpoena power and no control of what gets investigated.

      Grenell as Acting ODNI has LOTS of power to see documents, as well as a good deal of declassification authority.

    Maybe this will help expose more as Ty Clevenger copied Devin Nunes on his letter he sent to Mr. Grenell this past Friday, asking him to declassify possible documents regarding the FIB investigation of Seth Rich murder.

    The letter itself is very informative and makes for a strong case IMO for Grenell to look into this and possibly declass.

    And if so it could be another log on the fire to show the lying and the fraud by the deep state.

    I find it interesting he also copied Lindsey, Wray, Grassley, Ron Johnson and Brookner the Acting General Counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

    Now it’s up to PT and Grenell. Let’s see where this goes.

    There’s a saying that all power is conservative.

    When you’re on top, there’s no where to go but down.

    Government employees have it very good, right now: far better than previous generations of government workers. The average government worker used to have job security, but a low salary, compared to private sector workers. Now, government employees make more than their private sector counterparts, and the spread is increasing. And, government workers are being paid during this criminal lockdown, while their private sector counterparts go hungry (literally, in some cases).

    Talent follows money, and the brainy people are going into finance (manipulating money, for a living) and government work. The smart ones no longer go into making stuff (engineering, manufacturing, producing hard goods). This is why GM and Ford and Boeing are such messes. They’re getting the second-rate brains now.

    Government workers know they’ve got it really good, whatever they say out loud. They will ferociously oppose any and all change. They are statists, not leftists. Remember, the Russian communists who opposed any changes to modify (save?) the Soviet Union were labelled conservatives, by our media.

    The take-away from what happened to General Flynn is that the FBI bankrupted him, got him fired, destroyed his life, threatened his family, used that as a springboard to nearly destroy the Republic, and it was done without regard to his basic rights under the Constitution, it was done with fraud, lying about what was said to the FBI agents, and the evidence vanished, yet the judge still has a hold on Flynn.

    And what was the Media’s role in this? They were willing accomplices, and even now the Media is continuing with the LIE that the FBI was pure and Flynn lied and was the criminal.

    This is so broken that it makes me speechless to express how bad it is.

    FBI, CIA, DOJ, Democrat Party, Judges, Obama, Biden, and the media. Let’s not forget Paul Ryan who would not issue needed subpoenas.

      I was listening to Fox News Radio on my TuneIn app this afternoon and their report was disgusting. Their report made it sound like Trump-Russia collusion is still very likely. No mention that none of the 54 under oath interviews had any evidence of such, nor that many of the conspirators were telling the media just the opposite.

      I can’t say that I was surprised, just disappointed once again. Ryan should be part of the RICO conspiracy group.

        Fox weekend programs have been largely staffed by virulent anti-Trumpers since President Trump was inaugurated. It’s only gotten worse since then. Maria Bartiromo is the lone pro-Trump voice on the weekends.

    So one would think that Durham is possibly seeing evidence of A Corrupt Organization, right?

    My sense is AG Barr is another gatekeeper.

    I think we need to win the election, keep the Senate and take back the House. Trump needs to somehow manage to insert HIS GUY as Attorney General, much as he managed to do with Grennell/Radcliffe at ODNI. He’s got to out-maneuver or hold enough power levers to steamroll Mitch.

    AG Barr is smart and seems to have the right focus. But he’s a company man.

    Trump’s now got Meadows as Chief of Staff and Grennell/Radcliffe at ODNI — isn’t the difference palpable?? Just imagine if we could round it out with Flynn as NSA; and imagine if Guilliani were AG; now THAT is when you know it’s about to get real. You know who else might work? Ted Cruz.

    Point being, we’re really only STARTING to see Trump actually get his own people around him (Meadows, Radcliffe). Everywhere else — he may have rooted out the worst of the swamp creatures, but we’ve still go institutionalists, and we’re all hoping to get blood from stones. There’s a long way to go. I don’t think there’s going to be some big surprise; I think we’ll see the personnel changes first, and then know damn well what’s coming. Until then, we can watch Hannity with his enforcer pin and promises of “BOOMS” and pretend that subtle bureaucratic corrections actually matter.

      Not everybody gets replaced, but so many do that it will be a good opportunity to get rid of anyone who has been troublesome or who is protected. And Barr can declare success in saving the DOJ and retire in victory.
