  • Impeachment Just A Smokescreen To Cover ‘Crowdstrike’ Imran Awan Controversy

    10/13/2019 8:44:45 PM PDT · by bitt · 22 replies ^ | 9/29/2019 | ADMIN
    After years of unsuccessfully torturing republican witnesses for non-existent evidence that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia, the Democrats have tossed the entire investigation out the window. Instead they are focusing like a laser on the phone call President Trump had with the newly elected leader of the Ukraine. They want you to think that the big deal is the part that concerns Joe Biden. They tap-dance around the rest, hoping — since Democrats don’t pray — that nobody will notice the part about “Crowdstrike.” When you take a hard look at the history of the underlying controversy, it’s easy...
  • The FBI Is Lucky to Have William Barr

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 7, 2019 | Thomas J. Baker
    ... The current opposition to Mr. Barr centers on his effort to learn the predicate—if there was one—for the unprecedented investigation into a U.S. presidential campaign. Messrs. Comey and Brennan have repeatedly and publicly questioned Mr. Barr’s motives. They and their media allies warn that declassifying documents from the inquiry would set a dangerous precedent. Mr. Barr shows no signs of backing down. He is also looking at the culture of political correctness that has caused the FBI and other agencies to slink away from a frank discussion of the Islamist threat. This has gone far beyond the knee-jerk PC...
  • The media has no reason to blast William Barr for his doing his job

    10/04/2019 10:36:10 AM PDT · by ransomnote · 25 replies ^ | 10/02/19 | JONATHAN TURLEY
    With all of the breathless headlines of the last two weeks, it is astonishing that the entire city of Washington is not swooning from hypoxia. Much of the media have blasted out the news that Attorney General William Barr is “implicated” in the Ukraine scandal, after sources said he pressed leaders in Australia, Italy and England to supply evidence about the origins of the Russia investigation. Esquire Magazine was a tad more descriptive, proclaiming Barr was now “far up s--t creek” because of his calls. Yet not only is there a valid reason for such calls, but they could indicate...
  • WaPo, Chris Matthews Make the Case for Pence to be Impeached and You Know What THAT Means

    Here’s a subject that no Democratic lawmakers will touch right now. The thinking is: Pence is implicated in Trump’s campaign to pressure Ukraine to reopen their investigation into Joe Biden and Hunter Biden. Although Pence never mentioned Biden’s name to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, he was after all, involved in communicating the delay of the U.S. aid and at the request of President Trump, he skipped Zelensky’s inauguration. Shouldn’t Pence be impeached too? A rather low bar for impeachment to be sure, but that’s all they’ve got right now. The media, on the other hand, has no such reservations. The...
  • Dems, media aim to squash Barr’s probe of Russia collusion hoax

    What Democrats and their media allies really want is to torpedo Attorney General William Barr’s probe into the origins of the Russian “collusion” hoax. The whistleblower’s written complaint presents Trump’s request that the Ukrainian leader work with Barr to “get to the bottom” of the collusion hoax as part of the alleged quid pro quo. That suggests the whistleblower and his confreres in the ­intelligence apparatus are worried about Barr’s investigation and what it could ­uncover about their spying on the Trump campaign. The whistleblower complaint and the manic news reports of the Australia call both serve the same dual...

    As the firestorm over President Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky continues to consume the news cycle, the Trump administration has taken new action into a controversy that played a central role in the 2016 election: the Hillary Clinton private email server scandal. The Washington Post reported Saturday that State Department investigators are “investigating the email records of dozens of current and former senior State Department officials who sent messages to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email.” “As many as 130 officials have been contacted in recent weeks by State Department investigators — a list that...

    Nancy Pelosi on Friday charged Attorney General William Barr with going 'rogue' and using the Justice Department to participate in the 'cover up of a cover up' for President Donald Trump. 'He's gone rogue,' the speaker said of Barr on MSNBC's 'Morning Joe.' 'I think where they're going is a cover-up of the cover-up,' she added. 'And that's really very sad for them. And to have a Justice Department go so rogue, well, they had been for a while.' Barr's role in the Trump administration has come into question since a transcript of the phone call between President Trump and...

    Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The transcript of the call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky is out, and now we know why the Democrats are really in such a panic here. – You can read the transcript for yourself at this link. First, the key takeaway here is that there is clearly, unarguably ZERO quid pro quo in anything President Trump says on this call. NONE. ZERO. ZIP. NADA. And no amount of deception on the part of our fake news media can change that immutable fact. Here is exactly what the...
  • NBC Smears AG Barr, Book About Campus Sexual Assault

    In an attempt to smear Attorney General William Barr, NBC News framed a story about Barr’s support for due process (which shouldn’t be controversial) as him supporting rapists. It’s a typical tactic by the media these days. Ever since the Obama administration issued guidelines in 2011 warning schools that they needed to find more male students responsible for sexual assault, due process has gone out the window. In 2017, professor K.C. Johnson and scholar Stuart Taylor wrote a book about the issue. At the time, I wrote a review for RealClear Books — and my previous work on the subject...

    The initial IG report clearly found that “Comey's retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement.”  In olden days that would have produced an indictment but in our postmodern, postjustice era we find that  once again that “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” – James Comey, July 5, 2016 Thus we have a new standard of justice; even if you’re eviscerated by the DOJ’s IG for illegal actions, as...

    Full title: Attorney General William Barr tamps down conspiracy theories, but notes ‘irregularities’ at jail where Jeffrey Epstein died Jeffrey Epstein’s death was ruled a suicide by hanging, and Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday that he has no reason to doubt it — despite “irregularities” at the jail where the accused child sex trafficker died. The 66-year-old financier’s apparent suicide this month in a jail cell in lower Manhattan sent shockwaves through the political landscape, allowing a wave of conspiracy theories about a possible cover-up to saturate social media. But Barr, the top law enforcement official in the U.S.,...
  • In Short-Staffed Jail, Epstein Was Left Alone for Hours; Guard Was Substitute

    One of the two people guarding Jeffrey Epstein when he apparently hanged himself in a federal jail cell was not a full-fledged correctional officer, and neither guard had checked on Mr. Epstein for several hours before he was discovered, prison and law-enforcement officials said. Those details emerged on Monday as Attorney General William P. Barr sharply criticized the management of the federal jail in Manhattan where Mr. Epstein, who was accused of sexually abusing dozens of teenage girls, was found dead on Saturday morning. “We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand...

    Attorney General Bill Barr said the Trump administration will move next month to speed up the use of capital punishment against convicted mass murderers, marking the first policy development in the wake of the two shootings earlier this month that left scores dead in Texas and Ohio. Legislation that allows for the "imposition of any death sentence without undue delay" in cases of mass murders, as well as slayings of police officers, will be proposed after Labor Day, when lawmakers return from recess, Barr told a national law enforcement gathering in New Orleans. "Punishment must be swift and certain," he...

That’s right, it took them six weeks to finally think, hey, maybe we ought to go see if we can, like, find some evidence or something on the island which was, if all the documents and flight logs and depositions and affidavits are to be believed,...

    Attorney General William Barr said Monday that he was “appalled” by Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide over the weekend, but urged that the millionaire pedophile’s co-conspirators “should not rest easy.” “This sex trafficking case was very important to the Department of Justice and to me personally,” Barr said during a speech before the National Fraternal Order of Police in New Orleans. “Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy.” Epstein died early Saturday morning after he seemingly hanged himself in his jail cell at Metropolitan Correction...
