Who won this week

When he was with the Washington Post, Chris Cillizza used to do a loser-of-the-week column. He is now a nattering nabob of negativism nodding on CNN. It's a living.

I'm retired. Every day is a miracle. I am blessed and I count my blessings. Let us look at who won this week in Washington.



No contest. Attorney General Bill Barr won.

The promo for a new movie ("Getting Straight A's. Giving Zero F's") best describes Barr's attitude now that the Mueller Report officially clears our president of the Russian conspiracy nonsense.

His appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee was a magnificent moment. The attempted coup by Obama, the FBI, and CNN failed. Now Barr will mete out punishment.

After his hearing, Adam Schiff called him the second most dangerous man in America, a nod to the fact that Barr serves at the will and pleasure of President Donald John Trump, who is also the happiest man in the whole USA.

David Harsanyi wrote, "By accurately conveying that the investigation had exonerated Trump and his administration of criminal conspiracy or coordination with the Russians, two years of ostensibly serious reporting was exposed as little more than resistance fan fiction. Rather than take a moment's self-reflection about how their actions had caused unprecedented political chaos, undermined trust in the electoral system and crowded out legitimate coverage of the presidency, the entire collusion industry just moved its frenzied focus onto obstruction."

Since the witch hunt began two years ago, there has been a lot of quoting of Stalin's secret police chief, Lavrentiy Beria, who said, "Show me the man, and I'll show you the crime."

Once again, Democrats have proved themselves to be lousy as communists. We showed them the man, where is the crime?

No crime, no obstruction.

But what made Bill Barr the week's big winner was his refusal to let Democrats and their minions in the media set the agenda.

He blew them off. He waved the back of his hand at them.

Barr is not worried, but they should be.

He made it clear at the committee hearing that he will get to the bottom of the falsehoods in the FISA warrants, the spying by Obama on The Donald, and the FBI attempt to infiltrate the Trump Campaign.

And after the Senate hearing, Barr skipped a request to appear before a House committee.

These are the best eight years of my life because we finally are standing up to the bullies in Washington. Barr's defiance encourages others to walk away.

  1. I hate to say it, but I like Trump even more than Reagan. (Reagan allowed himself to get boondoggled by Amnesty)

    1. My friends will testify that I have been saying the same thing since November 2016.

    2. I feel the same way, I never thought I would ever like any President better than Reagan, but then along came Trump and that made me realize that on should never say never. Reagan had to faults though, one, he trusted the dems to do what they said they would both times, when he made the deal on the Budget Deficit Act of 1996 and he made the same mistake with the Amnesty.

    3. I agree; I loved Reagan, but several times he got lost in the weeds, like with Amnesty and when he endorsed the Brady (gun control) Act of 1993, and his support for the so-called Assault Weapons Ban of 1994; both those pieces of excrement got passed, in great part due to Ronald Reagan's endorsements.

      Long before then, in fact just after the assassination attempt that amost killed him, he'd said that he wanted to abolish the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATFE) and it's a real pity that didn't happen. That title better suits a convenience store than a government department!

    4. Trump is giving Reagan a run for the money. Reagan made his mistakes but so has Trump. Reagan defeated the Fredocons within his party and faced off the Demorats. Trump is trying to do so. Reagan beat them all. Trump is on the cusp of doing so. But for Trump to be better than Reagan he must punish the coup plotters and defeat the Chinese. No mean feat.

    5. Fatman, I agree.I was lukewarm on Mr. Trump, but his actions now thrill me. Now to arrest the mayor of a major sanctuary city to show they are in violation of federal law and again test federal control of immigration.

  2. I must admit, I was in high spirits yesterday. Economic numbers were staggeringly good. Markets kicked ass. Holzhauer, the same. And more stories about the REAL bad guys and what they did, alongside stories of near-terminally deranged LibCommies, many of whom are presidential candidates! Seems like Mr. T was just elected last week. Man, time DOES fly when you’re having fun. Thank you Lord for your providence.

  3. How long will it take for chicken-sh*t, virtue-signalling CEOs to man up, quick kowtowing and give the middle finger to blackmailing Leftists? Trump, and now Barr, have shown the way, so what's the problem? Is it because they're Leftists themselves, who use their own bully pulpits to get high fives at their cocktail parties to the detriment of their stockholders? In this country, Leftists only enjoy victories by forfeit. Trump and Barr are leading the way. Waiting for others to follow is an exercise in frustration. The stakes are too high for hesitation. If patience is a virtue, I'm falling short.

    1. 1. Business is business.

      2. These "leftist" menageries have access to credit, aka, borrowed money, and, thus, spend it.

      3. Business profits from both the spending and the juice paid monthly on borrowed money.

      4. These of the "leftist" menageries often pick their spendings based upon their emotional moods of the moment, thus, while being reliable borrowers, the spending they are only reliable about when not given an emotional trigger to not spend. Basic customer service, aka, do nothing to induce them not spend their borrowed money.

      5. The aspect of business discovering tbat a noticable to painfully significant portion of their past reliable customers have, by not spending, given their particular business the one finger salute and bid them adeu, is what you seem to be referencing. Those businesses may do as they choose, as will their customers, for whatever reasons either way.

      The bigger they are, the harder they fail.

    2. Before you purchase stock in a company, it might pay to check if the CEO is either a snowflake squish or Leftist useful idiot. Try to find one who cares about business first and keeps his politics in his pants.

    1. I agree with this. There are so many ropes hanging off the ship on which the rats may escape.

    2. That's my fear...that they'll throw someone like Comey under the bus and the rest will skate in some sort of deal. I hope like hell Barr says, "No deals," if he even gets that far. As I've said before, everything so far has been kabuki.

  5. Trump, in private, discusses firing Mueller which is his Constitutional prerogative. For this his opponents scream "obstruction of justice!".

    A.G. Barr says that he is going to look into some things, that's his job folks, and everybody and their uncle calls him a liar and demand that he resign.

    So, I guess obstruction is a special crime that applies only to Donald Trump?

    1. Barr is investigating Democrats. Democrats call for Barr to resign. According to Nadler, that’s obstruction of justice!

    2. There that saying: 'You'r takin flack when you're over the target''. Barr is taking flack. And is out maneuvering the pissants in congress

  6. Barr is terrific. He's so good, he makes our two West Virginia Senators look even worse. Quite frankly, and it is nice to be able to post this anonymously, I am really fed up with the passive, lukewarm behavior of both of our WV Senators. Neither appears to "get it" as to the extreme threat of the Left's turn to (essentially) communism, nor the poison of identity politics. Neither is showing ANY leadership on the topic of the census including illegal immigrants and thereby giving California et al more Congressional seats while West Virginia loses a seat. (True, it's a judicial matter at this point, but both Senators have been pansies on illegal immigration issues.) Both are very much just 'coasting' and Missing in Action.

    We need two new Senators in West Virginia.

  7. And we here in California need FEWER senators.

    How about "No federal money & no federal OFFICES" for "Sanctuary Districts" (Districts = Cities, Counties & States who declare "sanctuary" status.)

    I live in CA and therefore, as a conservative, have no vote anyway.

    1. Same here. Born and raised in California these 75 years. It is so disappointing what is going on in our state. Saw our first campaign sign today. It was for a Republican for Ca Senate. Nice sign. Hope it stays up for a few more days.

    2. Me three. No vote, no representation, and everything that Sacramento does I disapprove of, as well as everything all the CA reps & senators do in Washingon.

      My state has become a pitiful laughing-stock when once we were the Golden State. Now we're the Shit Brown State and it's going downhill from there.

  8. We're still waiting to see if Barr really will follow through. So far, so good. His smackdown of Sen. Blumenthal was the highlight of my week.
    I once asked my brother why GWB wanted an attorney general like John Ashcroft. He said: "If you live in a bad neighborhood (like the DC swamp) you don't want a watchdog like a toy poodle. You want the meanest junkyard pit bull you can get."

  9. I am so proud of these REAL heroes who we don't have to do that work in a small way with the Dimms in our world. I am proud of the President and this new Attorney General.

    Don't call it the "mueller report", instead call it "the mueller dossier". David Nunez call it "mueller dossier" during an interview with Hannity yesterday. BRILLIANT! Nunez has a great future in Madison Ave.
