Obama's 'Wingman' Eric Holder
Says an Attorney General Has to
'Appear to Be Neutral'

Original Article

Need a good laugh? On Tuesday, Obama's former attorney general, Eric Holder, who ran the most politicized Department of Justice in history, accused current Attorney General Bill Barr of "cross[ing] the political line." “I think the attorney general needs to be a little bit more sensitive to the appearance that that gives. You have to not only be substantively neutral, you have to appear to be neutral when you’re the attorney general of the United States. I fear he has crossed the political line.” Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. This is the same guy who, as attorney general, obstructed

"Neutral" does not mean splitting the difference between the positions taken by the two sides if one side is crazy.

I suspect they know he's getting close with some real indictments, and they need to try and neutralize him by implying he may not be neutral, thus, discrediting the reports coming out soon.

Geez. One of the real pluses of having Trump as President is that we don’t have to parse every single word. One little article about Holder and we flipped back to 3 yrs ago instantly: the AG has to APPEAR neutral. That’s different than BEING neutral isn’t it?

If it's all about "appearances" then this explains liberalism completely. They're all actors with minimal convictions. They say what they get paid to say.

Eric Holder fell way short of his stated goal. If fairness was the crime, there isn't enough evidence of Holder's fairness to bother to convene a grand jury.

In a post called “Not just a fake Indian,” Scott discussed Elizabeth Warren’s claim that, as a young teacher, she was let go because she became pregnant. The claim is false, as demonstrated by records of the school board in question and confirmed by what Warren herself said in 2007. Warren is sticking to her story. She is an inveterate liar. One point that Warren keeps making is that her (fake) experience as a pregnant woman in the workforce mirrors that of millions of women in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. I’ve heard Warren’s supporters in the media say the same thing in her defense.

The bar just got higher for deputies to make marijuana arrests in Pinellas County. Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri and Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney Bernie McCabe on Wednesday issued a memo cautioning deputies about making pot arrests in light of a new law legalizing a type of cannabis called hemp. While the memo only applies to the county’s 820 or so deputies, some Pinellas County police departments have also raised the standards for their officers to make marijuana arrests since the state law went into effect July 1. Wednesday’s memo marks the first time the county’s top prosecutor has issued an official stance on which marijuana cases his office is willing to pursue.

South Park escalated its criticism of the Chinese communist regime on Wednesday, with lead character Randy Marsh at one point saying “f**k the Chinese government.” In the episode Shots, which was coincidentally the show’s 300th episode, Stan Marsh’s father Randy is running a weed business selling product to China. When confronted about the country’s human rights abuses by his former business partner Towelie, he agrees to stop selling to China over ethical concerns. In an effort to convince Towelie that he is sincere, Randy begins shouting: “F**k the Chinese government.” The episode comes days after the show’s creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, issued a fake apology the communist regime

When asked the type of government the Constitutional Convention had created, Benjamin Franklin famously replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” Franklin and the Founders understood that given a flawed human nature and its passion for power, no form of political order can survive if it is not continually maintained and defended against attempts to dismantle it in order to empower one faction at the expense of others, thus diminishing their freedom. Since the election of Donald Trump, we have been watching one of the most serious assaults on the Constitutional Republic in our history. With the current efforts of the

LARGO — Clearwater parking lot shooter Michael Drejka was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the shooting death of Markeis McGlockton. The hefty sentence came during an emotional hearing Thursday morning before Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Judge Joseph Bulone, who heard impassioned pleas from McGlockton’s parents and girlfriend for the maximum sentence of 30 years. “Markeis was loved by so many and because of you, Michael Drejka, my son is now a memory," said his mother, Monica Moore-Robinson. " “I don’t hate you, but I will never forgive you.” There were no Drejka supporters in the courtroom, but one of his defense attorneys submitted two letters requesting more leniency,

Turkey's border offensive against the Kurds, far from being a blitzkrieg, is limited by the resources available Ankara's forces. According to DW its goal is to bring a 15,360 sq km swath under its control. "Turkey wants to create a 32-kilometer-deep, 480-kilometer-long corridor (20 miles deep, 300 miles long) inside Syria along the border to protect its security ... it plans to resettle nearly 1 million of its 3.6 million Syrian refugees who hail from other parts of Syria inside the 'safe zone.'"

I've grown increasingly curious — hell, let's say suspicious — about the most recent incarnation of the three-year effort to find a case for impeaching Trump. This is, of course, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) and the Democrat members' "impeachment investigation." Take it as read that we now know the Ukrainian investigation of Burisma — the Ukrainian gas company for which Biden apparently interceded while in office, and where Hunter Biden had a very well paid sinecure — started long before Trump's controversial call; that the President of Ukraine has said on the record he didn't feel he was pressured at all by Trump's call;

It was bound to happen, and sooner rather than later. Joel Francisco, dubbed by authorities the crown prince of the Almighty Latin Kings gang, was released from prison thanks to the First Step Act. Now, he is now wanted for murder. Francisco was sentenced in 2005 to life imprisonment for trafficking in crack cocaine. The Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 reduced sentences for this crime, but not retroactively. The First Step Act that President Trump signed into law with broad bipartisan support, included a provision that made the Fair Sentencing Act apply retroactively. As a result, Francisco became eligible for release from prison. He was released in February.

Today, President Trump’s White House Counsel, Pat Cipollone, directed an eight-page letter to Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, et al., declining on behalf of President Trump to participate in the Democrats’ sham impeachment proceeding. The letter, embedded below, is excellent. Some would say, brilliant. It attacks the Democrats’ constitutionally defective and politically motivated proceeding at its root. You should read it all. This is the letter’s introduction: "I write on behalf of President Donald J. Trump in response to your numerous, legally unsupported demands made as part of what you have labeled–contrary to the Constitution of the United States and all past bipartisan precedent–as an 'impeachment inquiry.'

Biden was credited with forcing then-President Obama to publicly admit his support for such marriages, amid concerns that such a stance might alienate voters. However, far from being angry with Biden, Obama "gave me a kiss," Biden told CNN Thursday night. "I swear to God."

It was about meat. Eating red and processed meat, the headlines declared, was no longer unhealthy. It seemed—at a glance—that a bad thing was now a good thing. The stories were based on a recently published analysis of existing evidence in which one group of researchers recommended that “adults continue their current levels of meat consumption.” This conclusion—which the journal that published the research called “guidelines”—was written by a group called NutriRECS.
