  • William Barr Speaks Truth to (Illegitimate) Power. Because he is legitimate and fearless the haters loathe him.

    When E. F. Hutton speaks, people listen. When William Barr speaks, call an electrician. Mental circuits trip and temperament fuses blow. The attorney general, bucking the behavior of attorneys generally, displays all the emotion of a mortician, approaches an audience with the calm detachment of a psychiatrist, and speaks in the reading-room volume of a librarian. His bearing rarely proves contagious. “The person in the white coat is not the grand seer who can come up with the right decision for society. A free people makes its decision through its elected representatives,” Barr noted in a speech Wednesday. “Putting a...

    Attorney General Barr trying to reign in the madhouse at the DOJ. :) "Name one successful organization or institution where the lowest level employees' decisions are deemed sacrosanct, there aren't. There aren't any letting the most junior members set the agenda," Barr said during his speech. "It might be a good philosophy for a Montessori preschool, but it is no way to run a federal agency," the attorney general added.

    Attorney General William Barr told the nation’s federal prosecutors to be aggressive when charging violent demonstrators with crimes, including potentially prosecuting protesters for plotting to overthrow the U.S. government, people familiar with the conversation said. In a conference call with U.S. attorneys across the country last week, Mr. Barr warned that sometimes violent demonstrations across the U.S. could worsen as the November presidential election approaches. He encouraged the prosecutors to seek a number federal charges, including under a rarely used sedition law, even when state charges could apply, the people said. The call underscores the priority Mr. Barr has given...

    Newly released DOJ records show “pitbull” Andrew Weissmann and multiple Mueller henchmen claiming to have “accidentally wiped” at least 31 phones used in the anti-Trump Russia probe. The documents were uncovered thanks to a Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit. The phones were all conveniently wiped after the DOJ IG asked for the devices to be handed over — some phones wiped themselves, according to the DOJ!

    Speaking in Chicago Wednesday morning, Attorney General Bill Barr gave an update on Operation Legend arrests, indictments and firearms seizures in the Windy City and other localities across the country. "I am pleased to be in Chicago to address the most significant threat facing this city. The explosion of violent crime, particularly homicides in Chicago earlier this year, threatened not only safety but this city's way of life. The federal government responded with Operation Legend, one of the most significant federal law enforcement operations in recent years," Barr said. "We've dedicated hundreds of the federal government's best investigators, analysts, fugitive...

    The Chinese Communist Party (CCP), not Russia, poses the biggest threat to election security leading up to November, said Attorney General William Barr. In an interview on Wednesday night with CNN, Barr was asked about election security and who is the most assertive or aggressive nation. “I believe it’s China,” Barr said. “China more than Russia right now.” Asked about why he made that assessment, Barr said he has “seen the intelligence” suggesting the CCP is a greater threat than Moscow. “That’s what I concluded,” he added, saying that could not elaborate more on classified information. But he stressed that...

    On Wednesday, Attorney General William Barr directly contradicted the idea that there is “systemic racism” among police departments and in America’s justice system. He admitted that some police may be racist but insisted that America’s systems are have been reformed in order to combat racism. While the attorney general said some further reform is still necessary, he firmly rejected the notion of “systemic racism.” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Barr whether there are “two justice systems” for white and black Americans. “No, I don’t think there are two justice systems,” the attorney general said. “I think the narrative that the police...

    Attorney General Bill Barr said Wednesday that Jacob Blake was committing a felony and armed when a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin shot him seven times in the back. Barr was doing an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer when he made the claims about Blake, without citing the specific felony Blake was allegedly committing. Initially, the attorney general said he was “not going to talk about the Blake case” because it was separate from the killing of George Floyd, who died after an officer kneeled on his neck in Minneapolis.

However, this second memorandum is just mind-blowing from the perspective of someone around the table at Main Justice not saying to the United States Attorney General: [NB from Malach--the following statment was taken from the FBI site. It can be seen at the CTH article page or by clicking the link "SEE HERE" at the top of the CTH article: "The reforms also include oversight protocols to ensure that any use of FISA to surveil federal elected officials, candidates for federal elected office, or their advisors or staff is...

    The Siege at Ruby Ridge is often considered a pivotal date in American history. The shootout between Randy Weaver and his family and federal agents on August 21, 1992, is one that kicked off the Constitutional Militia Movement and left America with a deep distrust of its leadership – in particular then-President George H.W. Bush and eventual President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno. The short version is this: Randy Weaver and his wife Vicki moved with their four kids to the Idaho Panhandle, near the Canadian border, to escape what they thought was an increasingly corrupt world. The...

    Attorney General Bill Barr has established himself as one of the few public officials willing and able to accurately describe the ongoing wave of violence and radicalism. In an interview with Mark Levin on Sunday, Barr cut straight to the point with his description of the violent, organized, and often armed “anti-fascist” radicals who have been rioting in cities across the country.“They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism,” he said, “they are essentially Bolsheviks[.]”Barr went on to make clear that when masked extremists attack police, destroy property, and “occupy” city streets and public...

    The annual conference is hosted by Great Wall Club (GWC), a group comprised of executives from Chinese companies such as Tencent and their Silicon Valley counterparts. This collaboration, however, poses a national security threat and runs the risk of intellectual property theft and espionage per the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Tencent, for example, has been characterized by the U.S. State Department as a “tool of the Chinese government” with “no meaningful ability to tell the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) ‘no’ if officials decide to ask for their assistance,”and is among the bevy of Chinese companies banned or on track...

Several of DemocratsÂ’ attacks focused on President Trump associate Roger Stone. Democrat committee Chair Jerry...

    Tuesday's House Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General William Barr had plenty of popcorn moments, but one exchange the witness had with Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-PA) deserves an honorable mention. As Dean, a Democratic representative from Pennsylvania, was questioning the attorney general, she seemed to completely forget her point. And Barr instantly called her bluff. Dean began her interrogation with a timeline of events on the day President Trump walked from the White House to St. John's Episcopal Church, which had been lit on fire the night before during George Floyd-related riots in the city. About 15 minutes before he...
