Elizabeth Warren Demands AG Barr
Resign Over Flynn Decision

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 5/8/2020 4:52:51 AM

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) called on Attorney General William Barr to resign over the Department of Justice’s decision to drop its criminal case against retired Army lieutenant general Michael Flynn on Thursday. “William Barr is not the President’s lawyer – he is the country’s lawyer. His political interference is blatantly corrupt and he should resign,” Warren wrote on Twitter. (Tweet) Earlier Thursday, the DOJ moved to dismiss its case against Flynn, who pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI about his communications with top Russian diplomat Sergey Kislyak following President Donald Trump’s election in 2016.

Can't believe these losers are going to continue this farce, ignoring the mountains of evidence against the FBI and previous administration. Guess that just goes to show how desperate they are, they have nothing else.

I believe Senator Warren once taught at Harvard Law School. This is her mindset? No wonder the Rule of Law is practically nonexistent in our country anymore.

Politicians are big on opinions, light on facts. If we had a real media, they would ascertain the quote-giver's depth of knowledge on the subject. Warren, like so many, has no idea and is merely spouting off.

This is good. Warren, who was a law professor, is giving her political opinion here. The original investigators of Flynn said there was no wrongdoing and were going to drop the investigation. Comey, who Warren apparently thinks highly of, sends two super FBI men to interview him again, advising Flynn he doesn't need a lawyer as they just want to talk to him, but their intent was to try to get him to lie. And Liz, the law professor, thinks this is all OK? She's as crooked as the coup people.

For Number four; You are right on. I'm from Taxatwoshits, (and I mean it), and so many people think that being a Lawyer is a great profession. It is only a great profession if and ONLY if you are situated for it. As an example, I had my aptitudes done when I was 27 and I found out I had wasted my time at BC majoring in Finance and at the end of my testing my aptitudes are the same as Architects anf that I should have gone to Northeastern. Anyway at the end I asked about the Law and the reply was that I'd be great in the courtroom but that I'd never get through Law School. And representing my Mother in Small Claims Court the judge said I should be a Lawyer. Anyway; Anyone who thinks that Law Shools are doing the right thing are mistaken. The first thing that Law Schools teach is to win At ALL Costs. Whinch can be interpreted as Lying, and Lying some more.

Now we know their strategy. The dems will all start coming out demanding AG Barr’s resignation. These people are sick! We have the evidence in black and white and they still deny the truth of what happened under the Obama regime. This nonsense must stop for the good of the country but it will not. They intend to fight to the death and Republicans should be prepared to take the field like warriors. It is so disheartening that my first reaction to Warren’s insistence that Barr resign is my concern that Republicans will not speak up in favor of this decision. The fact that Republicans must be cheered on to do the right thing is appalling to me. After all that has gone on and has now been revealed you would think that Republicans would lead the charge for justice. Sure, we do have the same group that can be counted on but you know that the contrarians will find their way to a microphone to offer their concern. The American people have been waiting for justice for a long time and I am afraid that if there is not strong support for this decision that the real criminals will get a pass because Republicans feel there is just not an appetite in the country to pursue what has the potential to be earth shattering even if it is the right thing to do. God help AG Barr and his staff to realize that while this may be an enormous upheaval in this country, it is imperative that we right the wrong that has been done. We know now that the previous administration conspired to unseat a duly elected President and that is sedition, the most serious of charges and must be treated as such. The call is for justice. Let God handle vengeance.

Besides the blessing to Flynn of being exonerated, the cherry on top to this is that it is driving liberals insane with fear as their schemes (finally) collapse. And the accountability is just getting started. Barr is the example of the job that Sessions should have done. We are two years behind in dealing with this garbage but coming on with a vengeance.

Another sick communist. We no longer have a two party system in our country. We now have Americans against the anti American communist party. Evidence means nothing to these people, destroying and with holding evidence means nothing to these people. Destroying one's life means nothing to these people. Its all about the power to control, the power that's puts hem above the law. They have destroyed peoples lives with zero evidence. What they did have were thugs in high levels of government who used their power to over ride any lack of evidence. Its sickening and these thugs have to be brought to justice. Got it.

The Democrats put in a lot of hard work to frame this 3 star General who put in 35 years in the defense of our country. First they went in with the intention to destroy him. Why? Because he worked for their enemy. The duly elected President. They financially ruined him with lawyers fee's. Then they threatened to go after his son. They left him with no alternative than to cop a plea agreement to stay out of prison and to save his family. Then----Praise God--- the facts of what they did came out,and Barr could see the truth because he isn't blinded by the TDS of the Democrats. But even the facts out in the open where everyone can see the deceit and foul smelling intentions of the Deep State FBI are not enough for Warren to just admit that their plot is out in the open, and give up on it. Seeing her condemnation of Barr is not surprising as the Democrats are still bringing up the false idea of collusion with Russia that also failed. My only wish is that they could take some of the riches from these Democrats who were involved in this foul scheme and make Flynn well financially;.

Hmmm, when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead in front of lots of people including Pharisees, Saducees and other Jewish leaders who knew for absolute certainty that Lazarus was dead for four days, was rotting and knew for absolute certainty that he was raised from the dead (some watched it happen), the response of the leaders was, "let's kill Jesus and let's kill Lazarus." Sound familiar?

The absurdity of people like Warren makes me wonder if they really are that stupid and partisan or are they that dependent on the Democrat Party to do whatever it wants for support. Obviously, for the Democrat politician, the "agenda" takes precedence over anything else, including truth, reason, facts, and in this case, the evidence. But don't you think most of them would just keep their mouths shut instead of opening them up and proving how deeply partisan they are? Do they make fools our of themselves willfully because they are nothing more that political hacks, or are they so controlled by the Party that they willfully to make fools out of themselves to get any Party support, knowing they would be ostracized if they don't? If it's the later, then something needs to be done with a Party that is nothing less than treasonous.

A just-enacted San Antonio City Council resolution provides, in relevant part (emphasis added): WHEREAS, COVID-19 is a public health issue, not a racial, religious or ethnic one, and the deliberate use of terms such as "Chinese virus" or "Kung Fu virus" to describe COVID-19 only encourages hate crimes and incidents against Asians and further spreads misinformation at a time when communities should be working together to get through this crisis; and WHEREAS, the Jewish community has been targeted with blame, hate, antisemitic tropes and conspiracy theories about their creating, spreading and profiting from COVID-19; and WHEREAS, to target and stigmatize specific communities for the COVID-19 outbreak and world- wide spread creates

The Trump administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been an ‘absolute chaotic disaster,’ former President Barack Obama said on Friday. President Trump’s predecessor blamed the current occupant of the Oval Office and his allies for exacerbating ‘tribal’ tensions around the country, which he says has hampered the effort to reduce total number of cases nationwide. Audio of the web call in which Obama spoke was obtained by Yahoo News. ‘What we’re fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy - that has become a stronger impulse in American life,’ the president said.
Drudge Report Becomes Sludge Report 42 replies

Matt Drudge’s media links compilation has been one of the sites I’ve checked every morning for the last decade. The Drudge Report always had links to sites with stories I would not see on my trusted sites. I say “had” because I am weaning myself from it due to the dramatic shift in bias I’ve observed, especially in the most recent months. The Drudge Report has become part of the leftist media cabal slanting coverage to defeat President Trump. There were dramatic revelations in the plot to get Trump this week–virtually ignored by The Drudge Report. DOJ dismissed the charges against General Mike Flynn because of clear, unequivocal evidence of the FBI’s plot

“History is written by the winners,” William Barr, the attorney general, said Thursday when asked how he thought future generations would assess his decision to drop all criminal charges against Michael Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, who had pleaded guilty twice to breaking the law. “So it largely depends on who’s writing the history.” In service to Mr. Trump, Mr. Barr is abusing his power not to write, but to erase, some of the most important lessons of American history.

As my colleague streiff reported earlier, a “private call” from former President Barack Obama just happened to be leaked to Michael Isikoff. Strange, isn’t it, how this leak parallels leaks during the Russia investigation that also went to Isikoff with information seemingly meant to undermine Donald Trump? The same reporter who was leaked to about Carter Page. Almost as if there’s a pattern there that we’re seeing once again. On the call that obviously was private and not at all staged to be leaked, Obama said he was concerned that the “rule of law is at risk”

The Biden for President campaign is building a “secret” group of Republican supporters in an effort to entice would-be Trump voters to cast a ballot for the former Vice President instead, per a Daily Beast report Sunday.The group is likely to attract so-called “Never Trump” Republicans, many of whom have been working against the president since before he won the election in 2016, and have undertaken several mostly unsuccessful efforts to undermine the president’s administration and derail his re-election.Biden gave some insight into the group’s creation late last month when he suggested that his campaign was “speaking to a lot of Republicans,”

After seeming years of silence, and plenty of billionaire vacays, President Obama is on the warpath. Here's what the Washington Post is reporting: Former president Barack Obama shared deep worries Friday about the Justice Department’s decision to drop its prosecution of ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn (snip) The release of congressional interview transcripts, the declassification of some elements of the DoJ Inspector General investigation, and the news of the FISA warrant abuses on Carter Page, as well as the railroading of Gen. Michael Flynn, pretty well tell a story of Obama being the big power behind all of these legal abuses

The daily and hourly flood of critical information about the COVID-19 crisis has made communicating with immigrant communities in Minnesota a challenging and frustrating task, leaving some non-English speakers struggling to access public health and financial resources. (snip) Yang, whose family arrived in St. Paul from a refugee camp in Thailand in 1979, said the current crisis reminds him of those times. "It brings back vivid memories of the refugee camp where you're shut down. Your circle – you're supposed to stay in the camp. You're not supposed to leave," Yang said.

On Friday, Ted Cruz flew to Dallas for a haircut. He hadn’t been looking particularly shaggy, but as hair salons have become the latest front in the culture war, Cruz—never one to miss an opportunity to declare which side he’s on—invited photographers to join him before he donned a face mask and a leopard-print smock for his visit to Salon à la Mode. The Dallas salon has become pivotal in the stay-at-home-order debates after its owner, Shelley Luther, was arrested on Tuesday and sentenced to seven days in jail on a contempt of court charge. That stemmed from her refusal to apologize and close down her store until the second phase
‘Scandal Free’ Obama Strikes Again 29 replies

It's one of the biggest lies in leftist media and insider Washington politics: President Obama left the White House after eight years without a single scandal. "We didn't have a scandal that embarrassed us," Obama said during a private event in 2018, which was then repeated by his adoring allies. This is blatantly untrue and new information about the FBI's unsubstantiated criminal investigation into General Michael Flynn proves Obama was engaged in scandalous abuses of power right up until the moment he left the presidency.

Former President Barack Obama on Friday said that the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been an “absolute chaotic disaster” and blamed it on a “selfish” and “tribal” mindset that has become operationalized in government. “This election that’s coming up on every level is so important because what we’re going to be battling is not just a particular individual or a political party. What we’re fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy — that has become a stronger impulse in American life,” he said.

When it comes to dictating how the news shall be presented to the American public, the Associated Press stylebook plays a key role (snip) On Friday, the AP suddenly announced that the word “mistress” is doubleplusungood. "We now say not to use the archaic and sexist term "mistress" for a woman in a long-term sexual relationship with, and financially supported by, a man who is married to someone else." (snip) Professor Margot Cleveland quickly and brilliantly figured out why this change was announced now: "So apparently AP thinks @SenKamalaHarris will be Biden's pick and they're making sure everyone know proper language to use in discussing her political rise to power."
