Ex-U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr said Tuesday that President Trump’s false claims that the election was stolen “precipitated the riots” at the Capitol. In his first television interview since his ouster and break from Trump, Barr blamed the violent riots on the weeks-long effort to cast doubt on President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the November vote. “That was the thing that precipitated the riots on the Hill’,” Barr told the British ITV network. Barr stopped short of accusing his ex-boss of inciting the mob of supporters, but he didn’t refute it either. “I’ll leave it to the people who are looking

And now is proven beyond all doubt that Barr was just another Deep State plant in the Trump Administration, not merely an incompetent, lazy, useless, bagpipe playing fool.

Barr would not enforce election laws, so participated the stolen election. Barr lied to us many times, telling us Durham was investigating, and the report was going to be next month, every month for over a year. Barr is a lying fraud, and I hope gets what he deserves for it.

Q2: You gonna apologize to Meuellhead for wrongly summarizing his $34m Report which cleared the President while trying to keep the cloud of suspicion over him?

Well Barr should be the first person to recognize that all the lies over the last four years by the DC “insider” Congressional UniParty, the bureaucratic Deep State, and the fake media that for all intents and purposes that is the propaganda arm for the leftist and liberal Democrats targeting Trump were more than enough to have made any average wimpy Republican politician quit and runaway. Or at least incite a good case of paranoia in any average politician, who could not even trust his aides to keep the contents of his telephone calls or supposedly confidential deliberative meetings at the White House private, but instead leaked like a sieve to the media. In face of all that the “outsider” lies and covert pressure tactics Trump made it to the end of his term. Since no comprehensive investigation has ever been done to look into the origin of Trump’s claims of both election and voter fraud there is no telling what really caused the final election result. Right now it looks like a lot of people who should know better are projecting blame to cover their own butts especially with the so-called cancel culture running wild.

Has Bill Barr had anything to say about James Comey or any of the other reprehensible people revealed in those declassified documents? Has he chastized them for the damage they did to President Tump and the people of this country? I believe he has not. But he can return from what should be obscurity to insult President Trump and all of his supporters. I should be shocked that Barr has stepped forward just to renew his Swamp bona-fides, but I'm not. Honestly, I'm struggling with a way to politely describe my complete hatred for this pompous fake. He has destroyed his reputation as an honorable man.

President Trump claimed election fraud because it was obviously underway across the country. From states coordinating shut downs and kicking out poll watchers, to ballots being delivered across state lines to be counted in a different state (WHY?!) to Dominion sending voting info to Spain and Germany over the internet, our corrupt politicians and courts have allowed Democrats to strip us of our right to choose our own president. I don't see Mitch McConnell or Bill Barr or our worthless MSM taking time to explain to the American people how it happens that machines designed "weigh" votes in favor of a specific candidate were deemed acceptable, or worthy of any election on American soil. Given the Dem's plan to put conservative Americans in reeducation camps is now out in the open, the silence from pretend conservative politicians who have the power to speak up and explain nationwide "irregularities" but neither the integrity nor courage, is especially damning. Obviously, ordinary Americans aren't worth their time.

Think about it, if the leftist and liberal Democrats were on the up and up and were sure that the Biden-Harris Democrat ticket won the election fair and square, they could have avoided all the mistrust across the country by uniting with the wimpy Republicans to form a federal election commission to investigate the 2020 election for both election and voter fraud and come up with a bipartisan conclusion. As until the election and voting laws and procedures across the country are changed to the point where almost all Americans who pay attention to such things believe that future election have been infused with the necessary integrity to deliver a fair and square election the mistrust will continue to get worse. But the Democrats did not do that because even they are not sure that Biden actually won the election, and the Democrats have in fact proposed new laws in the Congress that will actually enhance election and voter cheating to the benefit of the Democrat Party.

We used to believe in the Republican Party... then after the Clinton impeachment, many Dims came over just to be elected. Sometimes we have voted Republican as the lesser of the bads. No more contributions that go to fake Republicans. We will only support those candidates whose behavior and votes show their integrity. We will always support America's greatest President Donald J. Trump and those who truly stand with him.

Fugitive national security contractor Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange missed out on pardons from outgoing President Trump on Wednesday. The high-profile figures were not among the 143 pardons and commutations issued by Mr. Trump with just hours remaining in his presidency. The clemency actions included a pardon for former White House strategist Steve Bannon, who was facing trial for allegedly defrauding donors in a project to help build Mr. Trump’s border wall. Also missing from the clemency list was Reality Winner, a former National Security Agency contractor imprisoned in 2018 for mailing classified material to a news outlet.

The report, commissioned in July by the WHO itself, also blamed world leaders for their lack of action, saying China locked down too late in January 2020 but otherwise refusing to single out nations. The Independent Panel for Pandemic Preparedness and Response suggested that had the WHO taken emergency measures sooner, perhaps its member nations would have realized the severity of the virus and reacted accordingly.

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. became the 46th U.S. president on Wednesday, completing the most daunting power transfer in recent American history.

Ex-U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr said Tuesday that President Trump’s false claims that the election was stolen “precipitated the riots” at the Capitol.

Barr stopped short of accusing his ex-boss of inciting the mob of supporters, but he didn’t refute it either. “I’ll leave it to the people who are looking

Two executives involved in the early call of Arizona for Joe Biden on Election Night, angering many conservatives, are no longer employed at the cable network whose ratings took a subsequent nosedive. Both have been lightning rods for conservatives since the election.

On Tuesday, as part of a restructuring of Fox’s digital operations, politics editor Chris Stirewalt was let go. Fox’s decision to call Arizona for Biden took the network’s anchors by surprise and infuriated the White House, which believed the determination was premature.
