Has the Deep State
beaten Bill Barr?

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 2/15/2020 9:04:35 AM

Willaim Barr assumed the reins of the Department of Justice (DOJ) a year ago, succeeding Jeff Sessions as attorney general (A.G.) of the United States. (snip) Barr's DOJ has all but exonerated McCabe of any crimes -- indeed, on February 14, the DOJ indicated that it would not pursue charges against McCabe. If Barr and the DOJ are unwilling to hold McCabe accountable, why would conservatives expect anything different with Comey, Brennan, or Clapper, or Obama, or any of the others who were so central to the coup that continues to this day? It's business as usual at Barr's DOJ

Maybe I'm too much of an optimist but isn't it possible that McCabe is cooperating in exchange for having the charges dropped...or...maybe the DOJ has him on something bigger once heads start to roll. Or maybe I'm flat out wrong but I hope not.

I heard that there were problems with some of the witnesses in the McCabe situation. No point in bringing a case against someone unless you have a reasonable chance of a conviction. Of course the person that said this may be covering up what the real reason is.

This is ridiculous. McCabe’s charge was a relatively minor one considering the other things he is guilty of. All this thrashing around is patently absurd and shows ignorance of his total history. Durham is still working on the main event. Can no one hold his tongue until that unfolds?

Barr, in my opinion, is and has been from day one part of the anti-Trump bunch. Beware when a person like Barr (and Mueller) is hyped as "honest, dedicated, hard on criminals etc . This is what the opposition puts out for public consumption. Look at how many conservatives have had their lives ruined with zero indictments against the evil b@st@rds who were out to remove our President from office. Barr should be removed from his AG position as soon as possible.

The know-it-all’s here never cease to amaze, always quick to admonish the lesser people who dare to question (or even notice) the actions of deep state rats who cover for each other. Please tell us, All Wise and Knowing, when any trusted member of the DOJ has commented (or even been asked) why they continue to prosecute Trump loyalists for “lies” when Brennan, Clapper, Comey and others lied before Congress multiple times and NOTHING is happening to them? Trump isn’t half as smart or strong as I wish he was and hope that someday we’ll get a truly strong President (maybe a female, AA, or combo) who’ll blast the Deep State from beginning to end and completely clean house. I’m dreaming, of course. The USA is currently experiencing agonal respirations prior to flatlining. Once the American Patriot is made the enemy of the state and becomes a terrorist, it’s game over. Most here will be dead by then and never see it but it’s not that far away.

There is still another chamber to be fired on McCabe. I'll give Barr one more pull of the trigger before putting him in the black hat posse. If it misfires, or is a blank, the real answer becomes apparent. It strikes me that IF Barr, Durham, et al, are protecting the Deep State, it is also the Deep State being backed off. The alternative is for PDT to fire Barr and hire another do-nothing or worst Attorney General. He'd be 0-2 in that regard.

There must be a deal that was hatched between Trump's team and the dims. The deal - the dims and msm cave on the impeachment circus. In exchange, AG Barr and Durham stand down and not prosecute anyone associated with Spygate. Comey, Brennan, and Clapper et al get to skate. Rule of law? Forget it. Is it gone? Hope not.

From former FBI Special Agent Mark Wauck on the DoJ’s announcement that it was dropping its investigation into the charge against McCabe: When they say "has dropped its investigation" they're only referring to ONE very specific investigation--the claim, which he denies, that when he spoke to reporters he was not authorized to do so. He says he WAS authorized, and DoJ has decided they can't prove a lack of authorization beyond a reasonable doubt. ALL other investigations remain on the table, especially the Durham investigations. Now, with the new Flynn "review" McCabe will once again be front and center. https://meaninginhistory.blogspot.com/2020/02/barr-opens-investigation-of-flynn-case.html#comment-form This was not exoneration, no matter what McCabe and his spinners put out. And he is not off the hook re the big picture.

We shall find out in the next month or two if Barr/Durham will deliver for America or the Deep State. Whatever cards they hold need to be put on the table in March or April, given that there is a Presidential Election in November. My expectation is that they will protect the "institution" of the DOJ/FBI and we Trump supporters will be disappointed. Yes, I am a skeptic but I do hope to be proven wrong.

Unlike dems, Republicans have to base a case on evidence. If the evidence is too weak to convict McCabe then it is pointless to go to trial for show. I would hope there is enough evidence against the others to proceed. We will see. Plus, there is always a chance that prosecution of others might unearth evidence against McCabe.

Re: 10 - During the Bush 1-Clinton- Bush 2 administrations, I was what may be characterized as a Deep State double agent, using my position to influence to see what I believed to be the right things accomplished, bounded by our Constitution and Judeo-Christian ethics. The progressive communist Deep Staters were essentially birthed in great numbers by design during the Obama administration and have clung to their elevated positions during the current administration. It is infinitely more amazing that conservatives would be willing to see their country go down the tubes at the hands of these Deep Staters because of the failure of a man or small handful of men to magically stop them. If the anti-American Deep State is to be stopped, the individuals within it must be defeated by the People from whom they metastasized.

This is why a revolution becomes attractive. If there is unequal justice, or blatant injustice before the Law, then tyranny exists. If justice cannot be had then vigilantism is the only recourse. But we better be sure about the injustice. The alternative is blood.

For the vast majority of my politically woke life, I been ever the optimist in situations such as this-especially when we elected this president. I'm having a tough time with articles such as this and have to cling to the hope that these miscreants have been lulled into a state of having gotten away with this and as they relax, the net is about to be cast on the whole lot. Perhaps a few dozen dawn raids- with video produced by Fox Nation.

With McCabe walking, what is the purpose of Durham investigating anybody. Anyone he's investigating will in all probability lead back to one of the clowns that have already walked. Its now becoming a joke. With all of the evidence that Judicial Watch has uncovered in doing the job of the justice department, you would think somebody would have gotten at least a slap on the wrist. We know for a fact that these guys lied to the FISA court and nothing happened so I guess all we can say now is that the deep state and the swamp is deeper than we thought. Got it...

On Tuesday, news broke that the Queen had banned Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from marketing the “Sussex Royal” brand. Friday morning, another story broke, saying that Meghan was whining about this because she and Harry had already invested money in selling themselves. Also on Friday, the Queen won and Meghan backed down. Queen Elizabeth comes from a generation that holds that you can’t eat your cake and have it. In other words, when you make choices, you have to take both the benefit and the burden of that choice. Meghan Markle, on the other hand, is a child of the Veruca Salt generation.

The pieces are falling in place for a complete debacle for the Democrats, up to and including a convention walkout and riots if Michael Bloomberg’s plans to gain the nomination succeed. Under that scenario, an embittered radical wing of the party convinced that they have been betrayed in favor of a greedy plutocrat would not provide the necessary votes to defeat President trump’s ambitions for a second term. More likely, they would back a third-party radical candidate, or stay home. But not before rioting in protest on a scale that would make the riots at the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention

A quick back-and-forth occurred over the last week between President Trump and the nation's federal judges. (snip) The judges have postponed their planned "emergency meeting" indefinitely. Like most things the president says that cause alarm for the D.C. establishment, it is not the recklessness of his words, but their truthfulness that rattles them, and the more truth he slings their way, the more rattled they become. The judges realized they were about to make a consequential mistake by taking on directly the one person in the country not afraid to put the Judicial Branch in its place.
