Skip to comments.Attorney General William P. Barr's Statement on Riots and Domestic Terrorism
Posted on 05/31/2020 1:35:19 PM PDT by ransomnote
Attorney General William P. Barr has issued the following statement:
“With the rioting that is occurring in many of our cities around the country, the voices of peaceful and legitimate protests have been hijacked by violent radical elements. Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate, violent, and extremist agenda.
It is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it. The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protestors, as well as all other citizens.
It also undercuts the urgent work that needs to be done – through constructive engagement between affected communities and law enforcement leaders – to address legitimate grievances. Preventing reconciliation and driving us apart is the goal of these radical groups, and we cannot let them succeed.
It is the responsibility of state and local leaders to ensure that adequate law enforcement resources, including the National Guard where necessary, are deployed on the streets to reestablish law and order. We saw this finally happen in Minneapolis last night, and it worked.
Federal law enforcement actions will be directed at apprehending and charging the violent radical agitators who have hijacked peaceful protest and are engaged in violations of federal law.
To identify criminal organizers and instigators, and to coordinate federal resources with our state and local partners, federal law enforcement is using our existing network of 56 regional FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF).
The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.”
Since I post from the DOJ alot, I noted that many showed up on Barr related threads and simply brayed talking points, over and over, without reading the OP or supplying facts. It often makes good news hard to enjoy; all too frequently the comments were pointless, nasty and otherwise empty of information. I wrote background information regarding Trump's DOJ, including Barr, and will place it below for any who want to know more about why prosecutions are "taking so long."
I know some panic when they see Barr's name in a press release. They think if he's at a press event, he's not doing anything else and so they post their demands Barr be removed here. But that's like watching a fire truck drive by as it returns to the station and shrieking, "That's it! I've had it! We need to replace all our firefighters and hire some that will actually fight fires. All ours do is drive around in a fire truck!"
I also see a lot of posts that say Barr is "letting the swamp have it's way" etc. if he's at a press conference and doesn't bring Comey et. al. in orange jumpsuits to it. Barr is one of a legion of people draining the swamp from the bottom up. I've read on many different websites that "from the ground up" prosecutions work best because having proven everyone working under a king pin has been convicted of crimes said to be directed by him, the king pin's associations all those convicted criminals helps a jury understand who they are dealing with and sentences more accurately fit the criminal empire.
Barr doesn't list classified activities on the DOJ website or release it to the news. Watching the DOJ website as I do, I've seen countless cases about drug rings, human trafficking, medical fraud, tax evasion and other crimes that fuel the swamp with funds.
It's been hard waiting to see prosecutions turn the spotlight on the highest profile villians in D.C., but the groundwork is there and is beginning to surface. Those in high places providing depositions and engaged in prosecution won't tell us about, and the optics require that we not be told; the MSM would simply portray any investigation against the deep state as "revenge" on the part of POTUS re the Russia Hoax. For details re some of the investigative "groundwork" in place now, watch Rudy Guiliaini's video series called "Common Sense" on Youtube for all the evidence re the Ukraine.
Without arresting and convicting lower level criminals, educating the public, and in the face of MSM propaganda, the civil unrest we are witnessing today would be much, much larger.
Don't worry if you see Barr at a press event or having lunch. The deep state is still being dismantled even while Barr has coffee. President Trump keeps his promises, even if the Deep State erects road blocks to try to stop him. Immediately after Jeff Sessions was sworn into office, James Comey told him he was under investigation so Sessions would not be able to look at any of the fake FISA content.
Had Jeff Sessions refused to recused himself, the Deep State would claim President Trump was directing Sessions to break the law and weaponizing the DOJ - a crime Obama is known to have committed. The MSM and other Deep State professionals would have whipped the public into rioting like that which we are seeing now, only this would have been occurring on a much larger scale with numerous lower level criminal organizations and funding still in place, a military gutted by Obama, and countless fake international allies waiting to pounce on America "to help" *cough*UN*cough*.
If President Trump fired Sessions or accepted his resignation, the deep state would take control of the DOJ because the rules of succession in place at that time would mean Rosenstein would become AG and deep stater Rachel Brand would become DAG. Acting AG WHitaker was not legally allowed to view the content of the fake Russia hoax so he coulnd't stop it. William Barr was the first AG to take office since Trump became president who was legally allowed to view the fake Russia Hoax content and he forced out Rosenstein and Mueller quickly (to face prosecution).
While it was a costly two year road block, Sessions set in motion investigations in 2017 that are now surfacing as content for use in public trials. The riots in play now are tiny compared to the Deep State's original plans. The president can move no faster than the will of the public turns, because the Deep State has practice overthrowing countries and has assets in place to drive panic and outrage. Yes, the MSM. Their turn is coming.
Speaking of domestic terror, no knock raids are wrong.
