William Barr is unfit to be attorney general

Original Article

Posted By: StormCnter, 12/12/2019 4:50:11 AM

As a former U.S. attorney general, I am reluctant to publicly criticize my successors. I respect the office and understand just how tough the job can be. But recently, Attorney General William P. Barr has made a series of public statements and taken actions that are so plainly ideological, so nakedly partisan and so deeply inappropriate for America’s chief law enforcement official that they demand a response from someone who held the same office. Last month, at a Federalist Society event, the attorney general delivered an ode to essentially unbridled executive power, dismissing the authority of the legislative and judicial branches — and the checks

This is like having Benedict Arnold write an article for the WaPo asserting that George Washington is a traitor and is unfit to be President. Eric (The Red) Holder was the most crooked Attorney General in our nation's history.

As a judge for the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, Holder often had to be reminded....by his CLERK.... about having to change his decisions because they were illegal. This poor excuse for a man should have never been allowed anywhere near a position of authority.

Because during his tenure General Holder was manifestly and plainly ideological, nakedly partisan and deeply inappropriate in his conduct, I’ve crossed a Rubicon of sorts in that while I wish in principle to understand different points of view; in this case I started this column but could not get past the lede. An article of faith on the Left is no objective truth exists; the narrative is everything. A corollary is there’s no God— of course— and morality is a mere construct of bigotry. General Holder believes these foundational principles and I don’t consider them, as a baseline of thought, intellectually respectable. So I’ve determined the rest of General Holder’s article not worth finishing. Guilt follows. But the General’s political philosophy, and it’s narrow teleological motivation, provides in its crude self-evidence some measure of relief. To repurpose the time I would’ve wasted reading it to instead writing this, which has somewhat ameliorated my discomfort at rejecting an argument out-of-hand, has been wholly therapeutic, and reiterated for me that after 40-50 years of testing and failure the Progressive project is really and truly dead.

Holder as touted himself as being Obama’s “wingman” and certainly seems to appear worried that the current criminal investigation being conducted by USA Durham at the direction of AG Barr is stretching from the DOJ/FBI to the Obama Oval Office. That’s obviously the reason that Holder sent his public threat to Durham that some people would consider to be an attempt at obstruction of justice. Holder’s opinion that Barr is unfit to be the Attorney General does not hold much water, when you look at his malfeasance actions when Holder was Obama’s Attorney General and “wingman”.

Holder is an ideological, anti-White racist. If I had the time and inclination, I could tell you in detail about a Fair Housing Act case I had in which Holder and Deval Patrick overturned the administrative judge's decision in favor of a White landlord, with no basis for doing so. It was outrageous. When their opinion was published in the housing law reporter, I got a call in my office from a lawyer in another state whom I didn't know, but who was so dumbfounded by what they had written that he had to comment. He said, "Is it just me, or this the biggest bunch of horseshit I've ever seen?" He was right. I eventually got Holder and Patrick overturned by the Tenth Circuit, but that case gave me an education about how his mind works.

Richard Nixon resigned 45 years ago, on August 9, 1974, in the face of certain impeachment by the House of Representatives and probable conviction following a Senate trial. It also seems that he did so to spare the nation further agony from the Watergate scandal. While two other presidents have been impeached and stood trial in the Senate, neither Andrew Johnson in 1868 nor Bill Clinton in 1998 was convicted. Nixon remains the only living president to have left office before completing his term. There is no question that Nixon was on the ropes and that his voluntary departure helped heal a badly wounded nation,

BROWNSVILLE, Texas -- Salvador Castillo was yearning for tranquility when he became enchanted by a one-acre homestead close -- but not too close -- to the city, a place where cows graze beneath whispering mesquite trees on the property's edge. Castillo, an Afghanistan war veteran, and his wife bought the home using military benefits and grew their family into their new neighborhood -- about half a mile from a bend in the Rio Grande. They never imagined a border wall could dissect their property someday. But the first letter, stamped with an official government seal, arrived about a year ago.

On Monday, December 9, New Zealand's White Island volcano erupted seemingly without warning. Within two minutes, a violent cloud of steam, ash, and rock—called a pyroclastic density current—tumbled down the volcano’s flank. A cloud of volcanic ash stretched thousands of feet into the sky. At the time the volcano erupted—just after 2:00 p.m. local time—47 tourists were scattered along the crater’s edge and down the volcano’s slopes. At press time, eight people have been confirmed dead, 28 are currently being treated, and nine are missing or presumed dead.

Questions About Hunter and Burisma

When Joe Biden was America’s point man for Ukraine policy, an allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, started paying his son Hunter $50,000 a month to sit on its board. By Hunter’s own account — and that of another board member — Hunter would never have been offered this lucrative gig had he not been the son of the U.S. vice-president. There is no evidence that Hunter ever lobbied his father on Burisma’s behalf, and the elder Biden reportedly made life harder for his son’s employer by helping to oust a Ukrainian prosecutor who’d taken a hands-off approach to corruption. But this much is beyond dispute:

In March 1933, Herman J. Mankiewicz, a respected Hollywood screenwriter and producer, took a leave of absence from Metro Goldwyn Mayer to write a screenplay about Adolf Hitler. The former New York newspaperman, playwright, theater critic, and Algonquin Table habitué was known for his sophistication and irreverent wit. But Mankiewicz was also deeply political, and as he watched the Nazis tighten their stranglehold on Germany, he understood the implications and felt he had to act. Abandoning his usual ironic detachment, he wrote The Mad Dog of Europe in a desperate attempt to awaken the American public to the danger of Hitler’s rise to power. ie

Harvey Weinstein’s bail was increased from $1 million to $5 million on Wednesday over allegations he violated bail conditions by mishandling his electronic ankle monitor. But Judge James Burke rejected prosecution calls to put the disgraced movie mogul in jail over the alleged violation. Weinstein, 67, arrived at court in the morning using a walker, and his lawyer said he will be undergoing back surgery on Thursday. In his last court appearance, he hobbled into court and looked more pained than usual. On Wednesday, Burke warned that he would revoke his bail and issue a warrant for his arrest if other issues crop up.

The analysis of the report by Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz greatly depends, as is often the case, on which cable news channel you watch. Indeed, many people might be excused for concluding that Horowitz spent 476 pages to primarily conclude one thing, which is that the Justice Department acted within its guidelines in starting its investigation into the 2016 campaign of President Trump. Horowitz did say that the original decision to investigate was within the discretionary standard of the Justice Department. That standard for the predication of an investigation is low, simply requiring “articulable facts.” He said that, since this is a low discretionary standard,

Begin with the premise that there’s no good way for presidential candidate Joe Biden to address the issues that arose from his son Hunter’s work for Burisma Holdings. The former vice president isn’t going to throw his son under the bus, and Hunter can’t resign from his position as a Biden offspring. In mid-October, Hunter Biden did a defiant television interview, declaring he had “no regrets” about anything he did with Burisma. Joe Biden can’t contradict his son and admit that Hunter shouldn’t have taken the position on the company board. Wherever you stand on the political spectrum, you have to pity Hunter Biden.

When it comes to the unlawful surveillance on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the most important question is, what did President Obama know and when did he know it? If we are to believe the testimony in the Justice Department inspector general’s report on FISA abuse, Obama didn’t know anything about the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Neither did his attorney general, her deputy, or anyone in the White House. At least not that they can recall – an expression used over 200 times in the report. Yet against this we have the Sept. 2, 2016, text message from Lisa Page to her paramour Peter Strzok saying “POTUS wants to know everything we are doing.”

Tim Walz notified the Trump administration Friday that the state will continue to welcome refugees, pointedly saying that the “inn is not full in Minnesota.” In a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Walz wrote that he rejects the intent of President Donald Trump’s recent executive order requiring state and local governments to independently approve the resettlement of refugees in their communities.(Snip) “Minnesota has a strong moral tradition of welcoming those who seek refuge,” Walz wrote. “Refugees strengthen our communities.
