AG Barr gets attacked because his probe endangers powerful people

Original Article

The only thing uglier than an angry Washington is a fearful Washington. And fear is what’s driving this week’s blitzkrieg of Attorney General William Barr. Mr. Barr tolerantly sat through hours of Democratic insults at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday. His reward for his patience was to be labeled, in the space of a news cycle, a lawbreaking, dishonest, obstructing hack. Speaker Nancy Pelosi publicly accused Mr. Barr of lying to Congress, which, she added, is “considered a crime.” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said he will move to hold Mr. Barr in contempt unless the attorney general

Comments:

Ms. Strassel nails it exactly in the last couple of paragraphs. AG Barr says he will actually investigate, in detail, the origins of the Trump-Russia probe by FBI, CIA and DoJ.
This is scaring the hell out of them. They see what we see, that an honest investigation will find that there was massive criminality by top people in FBI, CIA and DoJ. They are right to be frightened.

Yes, please MUST READ this! I didn´t want to pay the WSJ for the full monty on this, but Fox gives a good summary article. This is exactly what I´ve been thinking lately. Fear. These ´Rats are sinking, and they look like they´re about to jump off the Titanic into the freezing ocean. They are bracing their base for what Barr is about to unleash on them, so they are ´pre-empting´ his blitz with insults, and childish tantrums. Its all to mollify their kook base.

Hope Barr goes for the throat on them and doesn´t let up.

And remember, Kimberley has been on top of this story from the beginning. Her reporting and analysis has been stellar. The Dims are in big trouble and they’re beginning to realize it.
We will see if they squeal collectively or separately.

As I said in a post yesterday, there is nothing more intimidating than the truth. These yowling dogs of Democrat sanctimony are frightened because they know that their little game is nearly over and will be examined by an honest man with the Law as his weapon and they know that a lot of them might end up in jail. Their attacks will only get worse in coming months as they see their power, their authority and their gravy train get completely derailed. They should all be imprisoned for treason.

They want Barr gone , he´s too powerful & honest. They loved Sessions hiding under his desk. If Trump had appointed Barr instead of Sessions this Mueller mess would have never occurred. Barr, like Trump & Pompey are not afraid of the media & the DC establishment.

AG Barr did a terrific job at the Senate Hearing. He knows what he´s talking about! He´s confident! I´m sure he already KNOWS who is guilty of what in the whole charade to take down Trump. Not sure how he will handle Mueller, his friend of 30 years, but that´s his problem. I think the House committee looked like Clowns yesterday. Everyone knows the ATTORNEY GENERAL of the United States does NOT have to sit and be grilled by low life Lawyers in the House! It´s insulting that Nadler even suggested this would be done. I think Nadler KNEW Barr would NOT go along with this and then Nadler could use his refusal to appear as a reason for all Democrats to hammer him and call for him to step down. All part of the plan to get rid of someone they know is going to take down some of the top people who attacked the Trump Campaign!

I´ll say it again. We need to make sure that none of the dims can take flight and leave the country. There may be some pubbies involved. Revoke the passports of those suspected of various crimes. After they are indicted and booked on charges, install ankle bracelets that are gps-capable on all of them so we can keep an eye on their whereabouts.

The Big Ugly is here. Get ready for the opening previews starring AG Barr. Let´s roll, sir.

Finally, an attorney general we can ALL be proud of.

The Dems constantly repeat their sanctimonious spin that Barr is acting only on behalf of President Trump – instead of "the American people." This is 180° wrong.

(Hint to Maxine Waters ... 180° wrong = the opposite of the truth.)

I think what has democrat legislators so distraught is what Barr said the other day about having multiple leak investigations under way.

It´s a given that Adam Schiff leaked but I´ll bet it was much more widespread than that and now they´re afraid they´ll get swept up in the net. Watch the most vocal, deranged democrats for clues as to which of them are really worried.

On second thought they all look deranged so that might be a difficult marker to identify.

Here´s what must be done:
1. AG Barr must receive the I.G.´s report , if he does not already have it.
2. Create a comprehensive timeline.
3. impanel grand juries
4. Start quietly squeezing the players ( get the heard running in one direction, and pick off weaker members,known as the "Sarengetti method ")
5.The big stick is 18 USC 371 (conspiracy to defraud the U.S.) or a sedition type conspiracy., along with various crimes associated with fraud on the FISA court and obstruction re: Hillery´s email investigation.

When I see these things happening, I will believe !

LOVED the last two paragraphs. Fear is probably too gentle a word. Perhaps dread and terror?

A full investigation could expose and condemn BO´s administration and its Deep State members, Hillary´s campaign, dems in general, media, foreign governments, RINOs, and who knows who else. Is THAT a big enough scandal for you Uncle Joe? It would be one for the ages.

Plus, whether they knew about the scandal or not, it is going to leave the current angry dems looking like morons and covering up for the players above.

It´s hard to image a cohesive dem party coming out of this process and they can thank BO and Hillary for it. Their destructuction of the dem party will be complete.

Q-anon has been telling us for 17 months this was coming. Jeff Sessions sitting on his hands (for better or worse) gave bad actors like Strzok, Page, Ohr, Brennan, Clapper, etc. enough time and confidence to keep pushing and hang themselves. Better, it exposed the Jurassic media for the lying propagandists they are and the democrat party as a badly organized criminal gang. Before this is completely over a whole lot of Americans are going to be wised up.

Like I´ve posted before attacking Obama and Hillary Clinton first is a mistake. All roads lead to them I want the real un-elected people of this traitorous coup who designed and orchestrated this to go first. Obama or Clinton were not clever enough to do anything this deep and far reaching. Hillary Clinton just nodded her head and gave money to help pull this off. Leave her and Obama in the tall weeds for awhile time will catch up with them.
I just want to see this get so serious for Obama that he is rendered toothless and never heard from again.
There will be some leakers in the democrats and Republicans who may see their names in the investigation. One, McCain, is six feet under the ground.

#19, is has good plan.

#16, don´t touch the third-rail of Obama and Hillary, at this time, as mentioned by #23.


And, since Barr has stated he has active investigations underway, the Democrats better be careful about their own obstruction by trying to delay or hold "show" hearings in hopes of trying to trap Barr into a "crime".

Nancy Pelosi looked totally unglued, which likely means she´s aware things are unraveling for the Democrats.

If one reads only the MSM and watches Bret Baier’s show on Fox, then I would expect them to view Strassel as the frontrunner in the Russia hoax investigation. However, that would not be accurate as Sundance at Conservative Treehouse, John Solomon, Chuck Ross (Daily Caller), and others were far out ahead. They were doing actual investigation. Dot connecting. Providing source and background material. Strassel began to pick up what they were developing and rewrote it to fit into the WSJ. She did get it to MSM readers, for which we should be grateful. But she did no investigation and was far from being the first to work on this investigation. What she has put out is highly recognizable to those who began reading about the original investigation and its development long months ago.

And the media reports what? Will they report any of this as it breaks? Will they continue to be as rabid as the Dems on the committee?

If the media had done their job as investigative journalists instead of ideological biased hacks we wouldn’t be in this shape as a nation.

Lauda, who won the F1 drivers' championship in 1975 and 1977 with Ferrari and again in 1984 with McLaren, passed away on Monday - eight months after undergoing a lung transplant. The Austrian died at University Hospital Zurich in Switzerland surrounded by his closest family, a spokesman said, after he was reported to have gone in for dialysis treatment earlier this month. Lauda had two kidney transplants in his life - the first in 1997 with an organ donated by his brother, and then again in 2005 donated by his future wife Birgit Wetzinger,

The trade negotiations between the Trump administration and the People's Republic of China (PRC) are not rooted in commercial disputes. Though media discussions are dominated by issues about opening markets for U.S. exports limited by Chinese policy, the real issue is national security and the need to keep the balance of power tilted in America's favor. Business is the means, not the end. Comparative national capabilities in industry and technology determine military potential, and financial strength supports economic development and diplomatic influence. China's rapid growth has moved the country from the seventh largest GDP in 1980 to the second largest today with the world's largest manufacturing capacity.
Democratic social media poll finds more users want Supreme Court justices like Kavanaugh than Ginsburg 7 replies

There is likely no pairing currently on the Supreme Court more dissimilar than Ginsburg and Kavanaugh.

If solar energy were not propped up by various government policies and subsidies, no utility would buy it. Not only does solar not work at night, but it does not work if it is cloudy or if a cloud passes in front of the sun. Utility-scale solar requires a large solar farm consisting of photovoltaic panels. For $100 million, one can buy a solar farm capable of generating about 80 megawatts of electric power when the sun is squarely shining on the panels. Depending on the geographical location and the climate, the average power generated will be about 18 megawatts,
