Thirty or forty more years of knocking all this evidence around with investigations, committee meetings, investigations, discussions, interviews on talk shows, investigations, more meetings and investigations along with more investigations and leaks that there is something that appears to be illegal so that there can be more investigations and meetings and then another twenty years on top of the thirty to forty ad they'll be able to come to an opinion that maybe Hunter did something illegal. So, we're ALMOST there, sixty plus more years to go.

I don't care much for AG Barr's style, he should be leading the country in these matters - not sitting back and making comments. It is the difference between a veggie burger and a hamburger. It's his department. He doesn't need to stand on the sideline watching, he needs to be on the field quarter-backing. I would like to hear a little more commitment in his comments. He acts as if there is some big question about whether the bad guys are actually bad. It's always "if" with him. C'mon Barr, jump in, the water is fine.

Barr has been incredibly busy. He just learned two new tunes on his bagpipes - - plus he signed up for another eight weeks on the Marie Osmond Diet. During his first eight weeks on the diet - - he lost 14 ounces. Give him some time - - he'll get around to the AG job any day now.

Bill Barr does more on the sidelines, in the background, than anyone knows. He's not a publicity hound. Those who prefer publicity hounds are like those who think Ann Coulter would be a great Supreme Court justice. It doesn't work that way. Strict adherence to lawyer's ethics prevents Barr from making outright accusations about ongoing criminal investigations until the evidence is in and has been presented in court with a conviction of the perp. That's why he is careful to say "if" when suggesting that corrupt behavior is being investigated. Bill Barr is no Adam Schiff, a filthy congressman who can lie all day in his accusations, and is protected by Congressional immunity from defamation lawsuits for what he says about Executive officials.

From reading the article and knowing that the Hoft brothers always seem to craft sensational, misleading headlines, I don't understand what U.S. law was broken by a Ukrainian firm paying bribes to Ukrainian prosecutors that the U.S. Attorney General is supposed to investigate for prosecution. This news reeks of ethical conflicts associated with the Bidens but when have the Bidens ever been ethical? Perhaps there are some issues with State Department officials keeping this under wraps but does anyone think that State Department employees on Trump's watch are any less politically corrupt? His own employees at State angled to get him impeached.

Democrats hoped that Republican defections from President Donald Trump would help former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 election, but an article in The Nation observes that Trump is consolidating support, even from “Biden Republicans.”National affairs correspondent Jeet Heer noted in an article titled “Biden Republicans Are a Political Illusion”: In late August, Rahm Emanuel, chief of staff under President Barack Obama as well as onetime mayor of Chicago, declared, “This will be the year of the Biden Republican.” Emanuel was describing the hope that the Democratic Party would convert enough hardcore partisans to fundamentally realign American politics.

Contrary to corporate media narratives, up to 95 percent of this summer’s riots are linked to Black Lives Matter activism, according to data collected by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED). The data also show that nearly 6 percent — or more than 1 in 20 — of U.S. protests between May 26 and Sept. 5 involved rioting, looting, and similar violence, including 47 fatalities.ACLED is a nonprofit organization that tracks conflict across the globe. Its U.S. project that collected the summer protest data is supported by Princeton University.

A year after the 2016 election, I overheard my first conversation in which two young men of color discussed the political issues of the day. I don’t remember what they were going on about, but the fact that they were going on about politics—and with such fervor! — was what struck immediately, as young men discussing politics was a rarity in my working-class Miami neighborhood, where typically it was older men who engaged in these sometimes heated discussions.Sitting across from them at Starbucks, I noted their interaction as an entertaining anomaly and chalked it up to the current hyper-politicized cultural moment in which anyone, at any time, might surprise you

Has the 19th-century German composer Ludwig van Beethoven become a modern symbol of "exclusion and elitism" for rich, white men? In an article published by Vox on Tuesday that quoted New York Philharmonic clarinetist Anthony McGill, writers Nate Sloan and Charlie Harding argued that the work has been propped up by white, wealthy men, whose embrace of the musical composition stood as a symbol of "their superiority and importance." "For others — women, LGBTQ+ people, people of color — Beethoven’s symphony is predominantly a reminder of classical music’s history of exclusion and elitism," Sloan and Harding wrote.

Approximately 150 pregnant Black and Pacific Islander women in San Francisco will receive a $1,000 monthly supplement during their pregnancies and for the first six months of their babies' lives, the city's mayor announced. Mayor London Breed's (D) office said on Monday that the Abundant Birth Project is the first of its kind in the country. The project's goal is to eventually provide a supplement for as long as two years post-pregnancy. “Providing guaranteed income support to mothers during pregnancy is an innovative and equitable approach that will ease some of the financial stress that all too often keeps women from being able to put their health first,” Breed said.
