Blame Senate Republicans for Bill Barr


Bill Barr's departure as attorney general on December 23 will be cheered by conservatives. Barr proved to be a disappointment because he failed to aggressively pursue the Spygate scandal in which Obama used the FBI to spy on Donald John Trump.

Barr's appointment was one of the many hobbles that Washington's swamp placed on President Trump. Republicans controlled the Senate. Donald Trump controlled the presidency. There is a difference.

Just as Democrat Senates forced Nixon, Reagan, and Bush 43 to compromise on the Supreme Court nominees, so a Republican Senate forced President Trump to compromise on Cabinet appointments.

Judicial appointments were easy-peasy. Republicans gave the president a list and he nominated them. They were politically in synch.

But Cabinet appointments were another story altogether. Republicans saddled the president with some doozies.

The worst of the lot was Kirstjen Nielsen as Homeland Security secretary.

She opposed the wall. President Trump could not fire her because she was the surrogate for the Paul Ryan Wing of the Republican Party, which spent two years denying any funding for the wall. 

Only after the 2018 election could President Trump dump her seditious ass, and get someone in there more loyal to him. With a Democrat speaker, President Trump finally could build the wall, and completed 450 miles in the areas most used by illegal aliens.

I do not want to dump entirely on Barr. He plays a mean bagpipe.



And other than protecting the deep state, I really have no problem with him. 

Of course, that was his No. 1 job, wasn't it?

Maybe his temporary replacement will appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden. That would please me.

And if so, I thank Barr for leaving and allowing this to happen.

  2. I think former acting national security head Ric would have been the best choice. Then again, he could be the permanent replacement.

  3. “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”–Ronald Reagan, “A Time For Choosing”, 1964

    We were told that President Trump needed to win beyond the “margin of steal”–which he did.

    But now we know that there is no such thing.

    They will sit there all night long for weeks manufacturing and inventing votes and voters until they “win”. They just did. Between the make-believe machine “count” and the Mail-In forgeries, there is no margin to great for them to overcome. And now they’re trying again in Georgia.

    If Beijing Biden is installed, Nancy Pelosi’s House Bill No. 1 comes off the shelf as the first order of business: the complete take-over of America’s elections, run out of the Swamp.

    You think you’re going to vote your way out of this in 2022 or 2024?

    They will legalize and mandate every kind of fraud you saw in this election. The states that do not have Dominion Cheatware machines will have it forced on them. Wide-open Fraud-by-Mail will be mandatory in all 50 states. No checking of signatures, residency, American citizenship or even a pulse. It would be a crime to ask.

    We have to insist this corruption is rejected and rejected NOW. Because our System will either stand up and do the right thing now or we’ll have to get a new system.

    Ronald Reagan’s 1964 speech was entitled “A Time For Choosing”. That election was lost. But this one, we won. Yet they are stealing not just this contest, but our very Right to Choose. Their will be no other times to choose if we don’t refuse this Election Coup.

    This is not just a theft from the President alone. They are stealing Us.

    The grand-kids are tugging on Grandpa’s pant-leg, asking for a bedtime story. Which storybook will we pull off the shelf?

    I’ve already decided. Have you?

    1. If we don't impose an ounce of prevention now, the pound of cure will be epic. There will at some point be an uprising, as 80 million angry voters can neither be appeased nor repressed indefinitely.

  5. From 1971 to 1977, while attending graduate school and law school, Barr worked for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).[17] He was first hired as a summer intern for two years.[14] During his law school years he was an analyst in the Intelligence Directorate division from 1973 to 1975,

    2. That may not be totally true, but the anecdotal evidence I have, agrees with your last statement.

    3. "Never hire anyone who has worked for any intel agency they are the enemy."

      How would you know? They have covers. An analyst for the NSA may have a resume that says "World Bank." Or a thousand others.

  6. IT'S A SMALL WORLD:

    Justice under AG Barr began vast surveillance program without legal review – in 1992, inspector general finds

    The DEA program did not intercept the content of Americans' calls, but the records – which numbers were dialed

    The program was carried out in part by the department’s Criminal Division, run at the time by Robert Mueller.

  7. >>> Barr's appointment was one of the many hobbles that Washington's swamp placed on President Trump.

    These hobbles are the picadors, and Zhou En-Laiden/Kuntmala are the matadors.

    ¡Adiós, América!

  8. President Trump's worst mistake in cabinet appointments was Jeff Sessions as AG. He would have been far better at Homeland Security, and If Barr had been appointed from day one, I doubt if we would have seen the likes of Mueller.

    1. Fascists are in charge of DC. Hitler called Germany the homeland too. Its a classic sign of a demagogue.

  9. It'd not just Democrats. My RINO Congresswoman Liz Cheney called on Trump to concede to preserve the "sanctity of our electoral process."

    1. My Senator, Marco Rubio, also joined the ranks of the SurrenderCons when he called for Trump to concede. I hope he’s primaried when he comes up for re-election in 2022.

    2. "sanctity of our electoral process" means 'if we're nice to them, maybe they'll be nice to us'.

  10. Any chance that his replacement would appoint some special counsels?
    The Turtle called Joe Bite-me the President-elect today. What say you, Mr. Surber or anybody? Running out of avenues over here.

  11. I would love to think it's a diversion and now he is unemployed, Trump will appoint him special counsel in cahoots with Trump to dig up the bodies. I personally cannot believe that Barr turned out to be such a piece of shit. I've been wrong before!!!

  14. Finally, my paycheck is $ 8,500? A working 10 hours per week online. My brother’s friend had an average of 12K for several months, he work about 22 hours a week. I can not believe how easy it is, once I try to do so. This is what I do....

  15. To be fair to Barr, under his leadership the DoJ has been aggressively pursuing and destroying drug and child trafficking rings.
    So not a swamp creature but not the man the president would like either.
