Enjoy the downfall...this is the end of America as we know it. Congratulations comrades!!

madAsHell said...

.....and you wonder why you can't find ammo on the shelves.

wendybar said...

What have we learned?? That you must get in their faces...beat them up if they disagree with you, call them Racists and burn down cities. That way, the Supreme court is too scared to do the right thing, and the hate and division is the winner. Time to take to the streets Mad Max style......No justice, no peace...it is time to show them what that really means....

Sebastian said...

So, what would be a "basis" for appointing a special counsel to investigate Hunter?

Dave Begley said...

That's why Barr was FIRED.

The new guy will do, at least, the Special Counsels.

Since there is probable cause to believe that there was skullduggery with the voting machines, I"m shocked the US Attorneys aren't seizing them.

Supposedly some in AZ are going to be seized by a county attorney and sheriffs.

Over 70m Americans think this election was stolen by the Dems. Why isn't the federal government investigating? What about the printing plant in Bethpage, LI, NY?

Biden is completely illegitimate.

"I see no basis now."

Shouldn't you look first?

And wouldn't "looking" include examining machines, and interrogating the overnight counting crew in Fulton County?

Dave Begley said...

Here's the deal, Fat. I stole this election fair and square and no one can question my theft. Orange Man must go.

This is totally and completely fucked.

Dave Begley said...

Wince has it right. The DOJ isn't even looking.

Wince said...

Whether intentional or not, Barr is giving Biden cover to fire the Special Counsel(s).

Jupiter said...

He was asked if the President has the legal authority to seize voting machines. He responded that he "saw no basis now for seizing machines".

One has to ask, what would constitute such a "basis"? If a corpse were found in a sealed room with massive head trauma, would that constitute a basis for seizing the baseball bat lying beside it? Or would the bat be entitled to a prosecutorial presumption of innocence?

rhhardin said...

I'd doubt that the machines have any evidence, if the hacker was any good. If the date is after the election, erase and revert to normal code.

rhhardin said...

What you want is a machine that was set to participate in the election but didn't, and lie to it about the date and see what it does.

Tommy Duncan said...

Trump continues to refine the definition of "us versus them". Virtually all of Washington is solidly in the "them" camp.

The insiders have pushed past the limits of our patience and good will.

If they looked, they might find something suspicious, or even incriminating.
Sometimes I try to be agnostic about the election- thinking that one side says there is widespread cheating, one side says minimal cheating, and I conclude that there is just no way to be sure.
Then I note that one side wants everything open, everything looked at. They have affidavits, videos, witnesses, and statistical evidence of cheating.
The other side has argument by assertion- we won because we won. Technicalities, lack of standing, they say. But no explanations as to why counting stopped, and then restarted with an avalanche of D ballots.
D's and deep staters of both parties will lose their jobs, and in some cases their freedom, if their explanations are found wanting.
That's motive to not explain, not cooperate.
My agnosticism did not last long. I'm a believer.

Well, he's got a point.

They already impeached Trump for what Biden did. What more do you want? Justice has been served!

Just do a hand count of paper ballots and compare to the machine results. That should uncover any shenanigans by the machines. I don't think they will find any. The bigger issue is signature verification.

Peglegged Picador said...

Althouse, are you nervous about your inevitable interviews with the FBI if some of these keyboard warriors actually perpetrate the crimes they're suggesting they may commit next month?

Greg The Class Traitor said...

So, for the next two years, when people shoot Antifa and BLM protesters, from ambush, Barr can pat himself on the back.

When people destroy "voting drop boxes", or their contents, next election, Barr and the US Supreme Court can pat themselves on the backs

When truck bombs go off outside Democrat "absentee ballot counting centers", Barr and the US Supreme Court can pat themselves on the backs for what a good job they did

No justice, no peace

Vote fraud is the diametric opposite of justice

Qwinn said...

Jaime,

The machines produced a rigged count, and then massive numbers of fake ballots were rolled in in tbe middle of the night to match those fraudulent counts. So yes, I agree that that sort of comparison won't find anything, but that doesn't mean it wasn't massive fraus.

Birkel said...

There is no basis no keep Bill Barr employed.

Qwinn said...

I'm glad my suggestion for the correct slogan to use is catching on.

No justice, no peace.

Greg The Class Traitor said...

JaimeRoberto said...

That works, if the poll watchers are there the entire time to make sure no one plays any games with the ballots, and firm audits are done to make sure that for every absentee ballot there's a signed envelop from a valid voter where the signature matches, and where the voter didn't vote any other way in any State.

Since the Democrats kept the poll watchers from keeping the poll workers honest, and refuse to do the envelop checks, and disabled signature verification, and there's tens to hundreds of thousands of invalid voters who "voted", a hand count isn't going to solve the problem.

Qwinn said...

Perlegged:

I look forward to the FBI interviewing the many tens of millions of people who believe the time has come for civil war if this fraud is allowed to stand.

They're going to need to hire lots more staff. Perhaps we can infiltrate them this time.

Oh, I'm not going to commit those crimes.

I'm just intelligent enough to understand that people who have had their voices stolen from them, the way the Trump supporters have been abused, are going to react violently.

No justice, no peace. The Left's been saying it for decades. In the next couple of years, they're going to get to finally start to understand it

Russian agents being booted in less than month

Drago said...

Its very clear that Barr truly believes he has obtained sufficient assurances from key establishment/federal agency/politicians that no further coups will ever be attempted as it was with Trump and thus, in order to "save the institutions" that Barr and the establishment view as critical for the safety of the US, Barr is not going to allow any further public disclosures that would provide the proof of the astonishing corruption in DC amongst both parties.

Further, even though a Special Counsel us clearly warranted, Barr will "set an example" for how not to go after political opponents.

So yes, Barr has ensured the coup attempt will be covered up and justified investigations never get started, all to "save the system".

Very, very EU-like.

Oh how the democraticals and deep staters are laughing and laughing at their good fortune in encountering Marquis of Queensbury Rules republican uni-partiers.

But then again, this is precisely what we predicted would happen since the entire establishment would be exposed (including McConnell, Rubio, Graham et al on the republican side) if more information were released.

Perhaps we never truly had any Rule of Law, I don't know. But it was certainly a nice illusion. Now the illusion has been dashed. It's been fully revealed that we're all just subjects to an elite ruling class, a class that totally despises us.

It's ugly and it's grim. And I don't know if there's enough will among the people to actually do anything about it. Do people like being held to different standards than their rulers? I always assumed they didn't, but it turns out I may have been wrong.

Just like they investigated the Antifa/BLM riots right? They are on video committing thousands of crimes. And you are angry that some people are talking about "crimes?"

Why should she be?? She loved the artwork that was left after the lefts little Antifas, and BLM burned down Madison....Democrats seem to love when their cities are burned down in the name of getting what we want when we want it...we are just emulating them since they were so successful...Who knew that you had to riot, loot and beat up people who disagree with you to get the Supreme Court to ignore Fraud because they are scared of the fall out??

Qwinn said...

One perk: Whatever resistance arises, they get to wear masks at all times so even if caught on video, it'll be tough to identify them.

Worked for Anfifa... or would have if there had ever been any intent to investigate them, anyway.

"I'm just intelligent enough to understand that people who have had their voices stolen from them, the way the Trump supporters have been abused, are going to react violently."

I hope you are mistaken about that. If Biden is declared President by a process with the outward appearance of constitutionality, the situation will indeed be dire. But any attempt at extralegal remedies will be immediately opposed by law enforcement and by the military, if necessary, and will not have public sympathy. Our situation is not like that of the American revolutionaries in 1776. Our oppressors are not based on the far side of an ocean. We are more like the unhappy subjects of the USSR and the Warsaw Pact. There were tanks in the streets of Moscow at the end of the Soviet Union, but I don't believe there was any shooting.

Inga said...

And they wonder why they are being called a cult. Trump as Jesus...

bagoh20 said...

What's the downside to seizing and checking the machines? Shouldn't that be standard procedure after every election? We check and calibrate all kind of machines that have far less importance. Everything we do with elections is now backwards and defaults to protecting and facilitating fraud.

The basis for investigating is that a majority of the country thinks there is a serious problem, and we don't trust officials or experts or their assumptions or opinions. We trust facts and evidence. Why do you not even want to look?

This is not about Trump. I don't even care if Trump himself says there is no problem. Prove it, or shut up with your baseless assumptions. You're just a coward covering your ass.

Whew, talking about deliberately missing the point.

It's an analogy, Inga, not an implied equivalence .

..."everyone associated with Trump and traditional American values..."

Jupiter said...

Indeed. Except. Did that actually happen? I was not paying attention, but I gather the cessation of counting was widely reported, and is generally acknowledged. However, as far as I know, the claims of anomalous counts are all based upon the JSON files that were purportedly produced by Edison Research and downloaded from a NYT website. It is perhaps more important to nail down the provenance of these files than to seize Dominion voting machines. If the JSONs were produced by Edison Research, then it is necessary to find out how they were produced, by whom, using what inputs. Especially the latter. I am still utterly baffled as to why this not only has not been done, but apparently is not going to be done.

And Trump continues to discredit the GOPe as naive, and unwilling to confront the corruption in DC. They are more concerned about appearing fair, and non biased and non partisan.

Barr’s decisions are appropriate for the Bush and Romney GOP era, before Trump unmasked what a partisan and corrupt swamp DC is.

I expect more information to come out about in the election fraud, as Trump continues to fight. And who knows, the horse may learn to sing!

Seriously. Why bother?

Michael K said...

Antonio Mugica was in Boca Raton when an American presidential election really melted down in 2000, and he watched with shocked fascination as local government officials argued over hanging chads and butterfly ballots.

It was so bad, so incompetent, that Mr. Mugica, a young Venezuelan software engineer, decided to shift the focus of his digital security company, Smartmatic, which had been working for banks. It would offer its services to what would obviously be a growth industry: electronic voting machines. He began building a global company that ultimately provided voting machinery and software for elections from Brazil to Belgium and his native Venezuela. He even acquired an American company, then called Sequoia.


Discovery should be fun. This sounds like Michael Mann's suit.

Ray - SoCal said...

Bagoh20 makes a great point!

>We trust facts and evidence. Why do you not even want to look?

My guesses on the willful blindness:

Democrats and allies:
- Because they know what will be found, huge fraud.

Elected Republican Officials - state and federal
Because they want to go back to business as usual, pre Trump. Look at how much effort they spent destroying the tea party. There is also some fear of being called racist. And they are also afraid it will show the corruption in the state GOP. Memories of the consent decree are still fresh.

Courts
- Don’t want to get their hands dirty, especially below the Supreme Court level. Supreme Court is afraid to show the limits of their power. Part class issues, and partisanship.

Secretary of States in battle ground states
- highly partisan, corrupt, and/or incompetent?

FBI / DOJ
- afraid of being labeled partisan, afraid of retaliation in a Biden Administration, and partially a class issue if supporting the elite, they see themselves as part of.

stevew said...

I don't believe there will be violence visited upon the Left by the Right. The great majority of the establishment Republicans are very happy to see Trump go. Like Barr they worked to get him out at the first viable opportunity, sometimes actively, often times passively and tacitly.

It is going to take a lot more before a real shooting rebellion breaks out, notwithstanding the overheated comments here.

Drago said...

Darrell: "As I said, Barr is an idiot or complicit.

The deep staters have nothing on Barr, otherwise they would have pulled it out during his hearings.

The democraticals/LLR-lefties opposed Barr because they knew he would immediately put an end to the deep state coup attempt against Trump.

Which he did.

The question posed at that same time by many of us is would Barr have the courage/intent to expose the full extent of the rot in DC if he knew that exposure could cripple some agencies and their capabilities as well as expose huge numbers of insiders of both parties.

The answer to that question was "no".

I believe McConnell knew that letting Barr be confirmed was the tradeoff he, McConnell, would need to make to shut down the corrupt on-going coup attempt (with promises to never let it happen again), cover up the bi-partisan corruption and essentially "move on" and put the "old DC" back together again but this time with slightly less corruption...at least for a while....and keep the institutions intact.

Thats where we are.

Of course, the democraticals have spent 30 years weaponizing the agencies so as soon as Biden is in the entire apparatus will crank up to "11" all over again and Barr's singularly unique opportunity to have played a role in fundamental reform will be forgotten before the sun rises.

The biggest irony is that if Barr were asked, and he felt truly free to answer honestly, whether or not he had achieved fundamental reform of the DOJ/FBI and rooted out the Stasi-like corruption, I have no doubt whatsoever he would answer "yes"...based solely on the handshake deals, winks and assurances by all involved that it will never happen again.

But we all know that snowball is now going to resume its downhill acceleration while gathering up more and more corrupt momentum along the way.

A structural 1 party state is where we are headed with the next stop being ridding the US of those pesky individual rights which are the real barrier to forcing alignment with the EU/global types.

Stuff Barr buried:

- Hillary’s laptop
- lots around Russian coup
- Hunters laptop
- Russian disinformation claim was fake in Hunters laptop
- Aswan brothers
- Weiners laptop
- Foreign intel agency involvement with Steele dossier coup attempt
- CIA involvement
- Doj involvement with Steele Dossier
- spying on Trump campaign
- Assange charges
- Texas Rep that got railroaded by Doj, pre Barr.
- laptop of guy that may have leaked info to Assange that was murdered. Seth Rich?

I do appreciate Barr stopped the Mueller fiasco and helped General Flynn.

Inga, thanks for the link I was looking for earlier.

Notice how uniformly everyone couches their lack of active investigative effort with the word "see" or "seen".

"I see no basis now."
- Bill Barr.

“I have not seen any evidence that Smartmatic software was used to delete, change, alter anything related to vote tabulation.”
- Edward Perez of the Open Source Election Technology Institute.

"Someone (not Dobbs) asked Perez questions about vote fraud such as “Have you seen any evidence of Smartmatic sending U.S. votes to be tabulated in foreign countries?” Perez had not.

stevew: "You may be right Drago and I am being too harsh on Barr; perhaps Trump AND Barr were suckered."

I made no such argument about anyone being too harsh on Barr. For his lack of courage in attempting to root out the deep corruption, Barr should be criticized strongly. We will likely never have another opportunity as that.

For stopping the transparently corrupt coup attempt Barr deserves credit.

In the long run however, allowing, by not calling it out, the papering over what corruption still remains, Barr will be relegated to a footnote in history instead of a champion of the republic....which wont matter in the end because the trajectory towards a "no checks and balances" 1 party controlled "non-Republic" is clearly within view now.

We need complete sunlight on all this... Particular or random people declaring this or not is not sufficient. Things will not settle until all the details in the those 2020 cheater cities is exposed and people are held to account or exonerated somehow. And we have to have sufficient reforms going forward to prevent this amount of cheating, especially in the presidential election.

It’s very bad for our country domestically, and even worse on the foreign policy front, to not have the US mostly united behind her president through fair and free elections.

Breezy said...

...this or that...

Greg The Class Traitor said...

Barr has decided to play with fire.

I could understand someone saying "Joe Biden has been granted the victory, we need to operate on that basis." You can be an honest person, and be rule bound enough to do that.

But you can not be an informed and honest person, and also believe that Biden clearly and honestly won.

Because there are too many open questions for him to have "clearly won".

So, if you do NOT want 70 million+ Trump voters to believe that they have been disenfranchised, you NEED to have investigations going that those voters can trust. Ones that will, before the 2022 elections, be able to say "yes, he won honestly", or "no, he didn't , and these are the changes that need to be made to stop the vote stealing in the future."

It is the refusal of the Republican Establishment, and the Judicial branch, to do that, that is going to light the fuse.

Because "yeah, you got screwed, and now you're out of luck because there's nothing we're willing to do to protect you" also says "if you want justice, you're going to have to get it for yourself."

And once you've told people that, you no longer have the slightest shred of a moral leg to stand on when they decide to go out and get that justice for themselves.

By Any Means Necessary

Shouting Thomas said...

The problem with focusing on “election fraud” is that the media and Democrats are using that phrase to focus solely on what happened on November 3rd.

A year long psy-ops campaign preceded that day.

That psy-ops campaign, launched by the CCP and joined either deliberately or opportunistically by the Democratic Party, along with Election Day fraud, is the full story of this completely fraudulent election.

jadair04 said...

Barr was a disappointment. Too bad. Now? The whirlwind... js

steve uhr said...

Not satire at all ST.

DOJ initiated the investigation but they will now drop it for partisan reasons? And the prosecutors working on it will quietly go along? Doesn't work that way. Why did they open the probe in the first instance if they had no intent to conduct a thorough investigation? Because the decision was political? You don't believe that. It's only political if they open an investigation into someone you like. And it's only political if they close an investigation without charges into someone you dislike. Heads I win; tails you lose.

Don't forget the standard for opening a criminal investigation is very low. Much lower than the probable cause standard needed to obtain an indictment. So if the decision is made not to charge Hunter Biden, one should not conclude that DOJ caved to political pressure. It means that the evidence developed was not considered sufficient to obtain and sustain a conviction.

It does have some risk to the concept of the secret ballot, but there are measures, and I think most of *us*, at least, can agree that the cost of it has just become too damn high, and frankly for almost all of us that cost has already been paid anyway.

The US lower ranks of the military deploy, to every existing precinct used in the 2020 election, a highly secure voting machine system with open source software using paper ballots upon which the voter directly places their fingerprint.

Every precinct has a kiosk set up that records just that precinct's fingerprints and votes. That kiosk can only be queried only via a fingerprint scan from a phone, or by being accessed with the fingerprint directly in person. This allows every voter to not only verify that they voted, but *how* they voted, but only with their fingerprint, and only in their precinct.

Only the US military would ever have a copy of every fingerprint in the national election, briefly, to compare and make sure that no fingerprint was used to vote twice. One voter, one vote. Any votes from duplicate fingerprints get flagged for investigation and confirmation of a difference by human analysts. Then the main files get encrypted with 800 layers of encryption and put in a vault with no connections to *anything*. This vault cannot be opened without cameras active and broadcasting and receiving acknowledgment from thousands of recipients of the video.

The paper ballots have your fingerprint and how you voted, which is a fair concern for secret ballot advocates, but it's hard to identify people by fingerprint. At best evil people would actually have to have full access to the database and *scan* the fingerprint on each ballot on an individual basis to know who voted how.

Oh, and the fingerprint ink is indelible. Purple fingers too.

Unless the left starts hacking people's hands off or *actually* digging up graves, I don't see how this could be defrauded.

What say you, believers of the fraud? Would you accept this?

Cause what's going to get worse at this point if they know how we voted? Are they not going to fire conservatives from all positions of power anymore? They can fire you with COVID any time they want. At this point, what difference does it make?

Big Mike said...

When Mr. Barr accepted the Attorney General position there was speculation online that he did so to restore a facade of integrity to a DOJ that was looking like something Goebbels would have been proud of. If Barr thought thinks his bland assurances that there is no need for a Special Prosecutor, no evidence of voter fraud, etc., etc., then he has blundered. My own takeaway is that the evidence must be so strong that the slightest effort to uncover it would be devastating to Biden and the Democrats. It seems apparent that I am far from alone.

I pray to God we don't go through another impeachment process in the next 4 years. That would clinch impeachment as the standard thing the party out of power does.

Wrong. That’s precisely how it works since the days of Obama.

Why did they open the probe in the first instance if they had no intent to conduct a thorough investigation?

Perhaps because Donald Trump was President and might win re-election

Because the decision was political? You don't believe that.

Of course I do. There are three digit in my IQ. You may say I am too cynical, but I lived in the Washington metro area for 45 years, and it is impossible to be too cynical.

It's only political if they open an investigation into someone you like. And it's only political if they close an investigation without charges into someone you dislike.

So you choose to believe.

Steve uhr is comically acting as if a government whitewash for one party while simultaneously bringing the hammer down on the voting base of the other party is simply too rare and improbable to be given any credence.

The rest of us aren't pretending to forget the last 12 years.

Remember when Clinton fired every single lawyer in the DOJ his first day in office, and wingman Holder under Obama? Remember how the Left freaked when Bush tried to fire five?

Anyone remember WHY Bush wanted to fire those five?

Because they refused to investigate voter fraud.

Qwinn said...

Let me rephrase- why Bush pretended to want to fire those five. Cause the entire upshot of that whole year long absurd "scandal" was that no Republican could put lawyers willing to investigate voter fraud in the DOJ.

steve uhr said...

"Remember when Clinton fired every single lawyer in the DOJ his first day in office ..."

That's funny. I was there then and I don't remember being fired. Perhaps I was out sick that day.

Rosalyn C. said...

Watching Barr's performance and body language it's apparent to me he is someone who knows a massive crime has taken place. But he has decided that for the sake of the country doing something about it would cause even bigger problems, so he will sweep this mess under the rug.

He's like a couple in a dysfunctional family who lie about their marriage and stay together "for the sake of the kids." Trouble is that the kids must live with the tension and festering hatred and are harmed irrevocably. And what motivated the lie is self interest and cowardice.

Qwinn said...

Why, you're right, steve! Clinton only fired 93 *Republican* Attorney Generals. Every single one across the country. There's video at the link, reporting on a Washington Post story.

"Judge Reno fired every holdover Republican US Attorney all across the country."

"All 93 US attorneys. A one day clean sweep."

He didn't fire any leftists like you. Not one Republican remained in the DOJ the day Clinton took office.

The video is all of 39 seconds long, but proves the point.

You were part of the complete and total swamp that remained. That someone as hyperpartisan as you was considered acceptable actually completely confirms that, doesn't it?

You know what I've been calling that for the last few decades?

Complete Permanent Infiltration.

The man needs a damned mustache. It's rare, but sometimes you can look at a man's shaven face, and see exactly the mustache that ought to be there. Barr is such a man, a man missing his mustache. So he's not a superhero and wouldn't single-handedly expose the complete corruption of his beloved DOJ, if he ever even considered doing so. But he could at least let his face complete itself with the facial growth that he's currently denying it. It would help him pull off the extra pounds, too.

At first I thought he needed a full beard, which I'm sure he could pull off, but that would accentuate the Ewok-thing he's got going on already. There's something very cuddly about the guy.

What more evidence? Suppose they have recordings of conversations of high level officials organizing the biggest election fraud in US history? Why wouldn't they? What is more delicious for those who would seek to do us harm, the American system of "free and fair elections" completely disgraced by proof of catastrophic corruption or the prospect of holding that esposé over Biden's administration for four years? It's a tough choice.

I know why Barr would want to lie, to avoid riots and violence like we saw last summer, but there could be worse consequences: that the whole world would know that not only we have had this horrible fraudulent election but that our political leaders were informed and chose to ignore it.

If Hunter Biden, with corrupt business dealings having credible links to the incoming Pres, doesn't justify a Special Prosecutor, it is very hard to imagine what would.

Russiagate certainly didn't.

People who don't want to be ruled by woke racist socialists have to face the facts--the Republican party as presently constituted is utterly useless. At this point we have a system that resembles the Harlem Globetrotters versus the Washington Generals. One team is set up to win, the other team plays patsy.

A rather astute comment. Either blackmail or exposure. Either way, once Biden is in it works for them. If exposed the Wizard is exposed and pretty much powerless. Or there is plenty to blackmail about.It wouldn't surprise me that blackmail first and if Harris takes over mid-term if she doesn't go along then exposure and making her illegitimate. Trump should pardon Julian Assange and Snowden walking out the door. Snowden is a traitor but he deserves a look over for exposing traitors. Assange hasn't done anything the NYT has done before including recently.

The J. Erik Connolly letter(s) -- and I have only seen the one that went to Fox -- is the opposite of anything resembling abusive process. It wasn't "process" at all. It was a letter, intended to promote the avoidance of litigation, by trying to get Fox to do the right thing.

The letter was pure facts, recited in excrutiating detail (the letter was 20 pages) and a threat to pursue litigation under carefully delineated theories. There's no pending litigation, no pending onerous discovery. Just a letter. To Fox's general counsel. Which very clearly resulted in Fox's general counsel (and no doubt Fox's retained outside defamation/litigation counsel) apparently advising Fox to do the kind of retractive apologia that was hilariously seen several times on several different programs. Fox seems to have decided on its own that it was in Fox's interest to do much what Mr. Connolly told them was needed.

This isn't lawfare; it's some Fox program hosts having conducted their programs in a wretchedly irresponsible way, and getting caught on it, and then getting schooled on some serious libel law. And not just Fox. The lawyers for Newsmax and OANN seem to have quickly come to the same conclusions and directed similar rectraction/correction/apology/explanations. They will be really lucky if Smartmatic decides to accept the action.

If it's the latter then I can certainly see why you would think of me as scum. I ask if you've read the founding documents not as a rhetorical quip. I'm sure you have. I'm sure you took at least one course in law school on constitutional law. It's the history of it that I find important. The sacrifices of every day scum like me who paid in lives and blood and treasure to get where we are. The understanding of why those things like the Bill of Rights is in there. How do I know there was vote fraud? Because the SJWs who claim to be for the rights of the people aren't curious enough to find out.

GRW3 said...

So Barr delivers the final Bush coupe de grace. Or maybe it's just the same old Republican noblesse oblige where you just take the Democrat's BS stoically. Perfect swamp bookend AG's: #1 agrees to a special counsel when it wasn't warranted and #2 declines to appoint a special counsel when the need is clear. I'm really disappointed in Barr. I thought he was a fair broker.

steve uhr said...

Let's get our facts right GRW3.

Sessions didn't "agree" to a special counsel. He recused himself from the decision-making process because he worked on the Trump campaign. He did this pursuant to clear written DOJ regulations, which Trump apparently wasn't aware of when he appointed Sessions. The decision to appoint Muller, who BTW is a republican, was made by Rod Rosenstein, who BTW is a republican.

The regulation is at https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/28/45.2. So is it your position that the regulation did not apply? Or is it your position that Sessions should have violated the regulation? It must be one or the other.


An investigation into Hunter Biden's associates was initiated under the Biden administration and they were prosecuted by the Delaware USA during the Trump administration. The Hunter Biden investigation is being handled by that same office by all accounts in a fair and professional manner by unbiased prosecutors. That obviously is what Barr, who BTW is a republican, concluded and he would know. So why is there a clear need to remove those prosecutors from the case?

steve uhr said...

And yes, Trump should have ignored bullshit swamp regulations created by flunkies of a branch of which he is the ultimate executive. No lower level flunky should be able to override the President in the executive branch, and yet it happens all the time - but only to conservatives

Douglas B. Levene said...

Mr. Barr is a very wise and strategic man. 1) The current administration does not have a conflict of interest investigating Hunter but the Biden administration will. 2) Most people in the US know nothing about the Hunter shenanigans but that is now going to change. It will change because Republican senators will be asking Biden’s nominee for AG for assurances that he will appoint an AG if there’s a conflict of interest. They will spend a lot of time discussing the facts and the evidence suggesting that there will be a conflict of interest on day one of the new administration. The Democratic media caucus will have to cover these confirmation hearings and so the public will finally learn about the Hunter business. 3) The reason Biden has not yet announced his nominee for AG is his fear about a special prosecutor being appointed. On the one hand, Biden wants a “wingman” like Holder who will protect him. That would be somebody like Doug Jones. On the other hand, Biden has promised to appoint an AG who will be independent. That would be somebody like Merrick Garland. 4) Whoever Biden appoints will face enormous pressure to appoint a special prosecutor. Lots of lefties will join in because they will see this as a way to pressure Biden to move left and/or resign in favor of Harris. 5) Get the popcorn.

Rusty said...

" The decision to appoint Muller, who BTW is a republican, was made by Rod Rosenstein, who BTW is a republican."
So what? They resented Trump. They're not going to let an outsider dictate to them. The Hunter "Biden investigation is being handled by that same office by all accounts in a fair and professional manner by unbiased prosecutors."
You bet it will! I have complete faith in the system! The same people that assured us that Trump was guilty..................of something.

Face it: your asshole lost the election. We go from a Republican asshole con man as president to a Democrat asshole corporate tool as president.

Qwinn said...

Cook: Face it: We've seen the evidence ourselves. With our own eyes. There is no appeal to authority - any authority - that is going to convince us otherwise. And yes, if someone is attempting to whitewash the evidence we've seen with our own eyes, that DOES mean they are compromised one way or another. Duh.

Not even Trump conceding is going to make us concede. The evidence is irrefutable, and just because you can find people willing to avert their eyes doesn't make the evidence *actually* go away.

There is no workable "us" in "Who are you going to believe, us or your lying eyes". Cut the inane fucking appeals to authority. They are a logical fallacy under the best of circumstances, and they actively serve to undermine your legitimacy here.

Oh... oh wow... now that you mention it... you must be right, I mean, it's not like I'm a thinking citizen capable of evaluating evidence without the help of corrupt partisan judges. Ones who, if it were possible to dispute the evidence, would have done so by now. Your entire position is that the evidence doesn't exist because udges dismissed it for standing and timing bullshit. And the judges that HAVE ruled in favor of Trump just get overridden by corrupt complicit partisan State Supreme Courts, which somehow gets called "not one judge has ruled in Trump's favor."

The lies are so blatant that you can't be failing to recognize they are lies. Which means you are complicit.
