Bill Barr’s latest anti-Trump diatribe
explodes the myth that he’s a wise man

Original Article

The Bible holds that “Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise…” (Proverbs 17:28.) In the modern era, with attribution to Mark Twain, Abraham Lincoln, or others, that’s been reworked as “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.” Former Attorney General Bill Barr’s latest embittered statements about the documents the FBI stole from Mar-a-Lago place him squarely within that quotation. In the government, where it’s almost impossible to get fired, those who stick around long enough become respected, even revered. That’s especially true for attorneys who work in the Department of Justice.


Ms. Widburg obliterates Barr and his weaselly comments on the Trump Special Counsel. She fact checks him up the wazoo, to be somewhat indelicate.

Barr, a great disappointment, is not a wise man. But he surely is a wise guy!

I have never met, or seen anyone refer to Barr as "wise". I have heard many negative things about him. The only thing he can claim is that he has the only foot wide face in the DC crowd---but he is broader front to back at the waist, than side to side - a phenomena.

I caught that part of his diatribe mentioned in the article. I felt like stuffing his bagpipes up where the sun don’t shine! He has some axe to grind. What bitterness towards Trump. It’s probably because Trump didn’t listen to him for advice or any of the other career fools on the swamp because he’s smarter than all of them.

Barr is doing the bidding of the Deep State. It’s his job to pontificate on this issue with all the gravitas his former office affords him in an attempt to use his opinion as fact. If Barr says it, it must be true. Trump is guilty. This is just more political theater. Barr’s opinion does not matter a bit as the author perfectly points out. This is a legal matter with precedent well documented. Nice try, Ralphie. No cigar.

Barr should be answering 3:questions: 1) how did Epstein kill himself while in a secure federal joint under Barr's protection? 2) why did he tell the AG of a swing state to stop investing the 2020? 3) why did he say mail in balloting was Playing with Fire then unplug all the smoke alarms? 4) why can't he shut his extremely overworked pie hole? Ok 4 questions

When ones best friend is a "Dirty Cop", it screams Idiot! So it is with Bill Barr whose best friend is Robert Mueller. The very same dirty cop who worked fro the Irish mob in Boston by putting innocent men in prison for murders they didn't commit. Mueller has a litany of abuses during his entire career well before the Russia Fiasco.

Then using his logic it's amazing that he didn't raid the Presidential Library "stashes" of Barack Obama and Bill Clinton in search of "sensitive" information. This would be especially salient after Sandy Berger STOLE God-knows-what out of the National Archives just before Clinton's 9-11 Testimony, while security staff and cameras were in "idle mode."

I have a sorta of a reason why Barr would go off on President Trump since 2020. Barr has had a series of mini strokes and that unleased a torrent of bile from his soul. That happened to my father. He was holding it together before his mini strokes, but then, the poison from within was released, and out of his mouth, came hatred and lashing out to and for everyone. The filter was off! Think about it. Barr went from a reasonable AG to a vicious, nasty, mean person.

I agree with #1. Barr gave some speeches characterized by soaring rhetoric, a high regard for our Constitution and even some praise for President Trump. But then, he turned, he turned against the Constitutional order he seemed to praise, and became a pestiferous nag, a "meddlesome busybody" one of the most obnoxious hectoring boobs in our tumultuous times. He could not, in the end, bring a calm, methodical environment of truth. When we have needed someone to stand against the rush of lies --a word almost losing its meaning because of the profusion of them-- Barr sputtered and petered out, a flickering blob of narcissism and egotism. Let' s face it, all of DC is the Mother Blob, in its core Democrats, but some Rinos absorbed, which creeps and oozes and fills the nooks and crannies with all its corrupting contagion. I do not see a way out of the miasma.

The supporters of former President Trump are absolutely correct about one thing. If every single Republican pledged their allegiance to him and fell in line he’d win the nomination easily. But he’d also lose the general election, again. He does not receive enough support from outside the traditional Republican and MAGA base to win in 2024. Hillary Clinton beat Trump by roughly 3 million in the popular vote in 2016. While Trump indeed did win the election by taking the required 270 electoral votes, just a few thousand votes in each of the key swing states would have changed that outcome into a Hillary Clinton landslide victory in 2016.

When Trump burst on the political scene, his smashmouth style was, shall we say, off-putting. Dan Bongino, also from Queens, told us this was just the normal style of speech in that area. And many of us voted for the Donald, knowing that the alternative was simply intolerable. We weren’t sure what he would do, but his opponent was guaranteed to do bad things. For four years, in the face of relentless false attacks, Donald Trump got things done. Lots of things. But he didn’t drain the swamp.

he cancer of early voting tightened its deadly grip on the American body politic in last week’s midterm elections. This is yet another destructive outcome of Nov. 8. The mad rush toward early voting accelerated thanks to another disease: COVID-19. Like so many things wrong in America today, COVID lurks just beneath the surface. Because voting in person was “too dangerous,” opportunistic Democrat lawyers sued like ambulance chasers in 2020 to widen and deepen early voting beyond its earlier, lower profile. This year, with COVID in the rear-view mirror, 2020’s “emergency” measure has become the new normal. The Democrats’ ever-leftward ratchet mechanism always works this way.

The piece was entitled "Crush Them." Conservatives have a rare opportunity [today] to do something they signally failed to do in the landslide elections of 1972 and 1984: finish the job.

"Victory has a thousand fathers," said John F. Kennedy, "but defeat is an orphan." By that measure, America is running a military establishment that more closely resembles an overpopulated Dickensian sweat shop than a modern war machine. Indeed, it's been so long since the United States has won a war -- back when the War Department still existed, in fact -- that hardly any living American knows what "victory" means any more. But what difference does it make? This man's army is now the province of pregnant females, transsexuals, and born-male admirals in skirts. No wonder it can't fight.

As I write, on January 6, 2022, I’m reminded that sometimes government doesn’t go right. Too often, it has been because of oppression — governments only caring about some of the people and riding roughshod over the rest. They paper over the tyranny with the appearance of legality, deepening the oppression by requiring mental and spiritual enslavement to the this caricature as if it were legitimate. But even well-conceived nations can err. Constitutionalists know that even the best systems of law will miscarry. Juries get it wrong, sometimes wrongly convicting innocent people, sometimes failing to convict real criminals.

Rubio announced a surprising change of position — specifically, that he backed Amazon workers at a facility in Bessemer, Alabama, in their effort to unionize against the e-tail giant. Republicans throwing in behind unions? Is this a sign of the apocalypse? You’d think so, but according to Rubio’s op-ed it isn’t much of a sea change in the GOP’s economic policy. Instead, he’s taking the stance as a result of Amazon’s toxicity in the culture wars:

At the Iowa family Leader conference, Tucker Carlson interviewed several leading contenders for president Tim Scott, Asa Hutchinson, Mike Pence, Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Ron DeSantis. If the participants thought this was going to be another tongue bath, they were certainly surprised. He asked hard questions and some of their answers exposed their muddled thinking.
