Barr Not Concerned About Critics, Legacy: ‘Everyone Dies’

Attorney General William Barr, who has come under fire from critics who say he’s defending President Donald Trump, says in an interview airing Friday that at this stage of his life, such attacks don’t “make any difference.”

“I am at the end of my career,” Barr told CBS News’ Jan Crawford in an interview for “CBS This Morning.” “Everyone dies and I am not, you know, I don’t believe in the Homeric idea that idea that you know, immortality comes by, you know, having odes sung about you over the centuries.”

He added that such attacks are coming from him serving during a “hyper-partisan period of time” and he knew it would be a matter of time before he came under attack.

“Nowadays, people don’t care about the merits and the substance,” said Barr. “They only care about who it helps, who benefits, whether my side benefits or the other side benefits, everything is gauged by politics.”

Any attorney general during this period of time would end up losing political capital, Barr said, and he does not regret returning as attorney general for a second time, having served before under President George H.W. Bush.

“In many ways, I’d rather be back in my old life but I think that I love the Department of Justice, I love the FBI, I think it is important that we not, in this period of intense partisan feeling, destroy our institutions,” he added.

Barr said he has a “good, professional working relationship” with Trump.

Abuse of Power exposed: Declassification of Documents to reveal True Crimes of Clinton Foundation, Corruption in Justice System

Abuse of Power:

Declassification of Documents to reveal  cover up of True Crimes, Corruption in Justice System

From Real Clear Politics:

Charles Lipson

“These defenders of the old guard are sliming Attorney General Bill Barr, who heads the investigation into their actions . . . Barr won’t be deterred. He did not return for a second stint as AG to pad his résumé or protect Donald Trump. He returned to clean out the Augean Stables.”

“The skies are growing dark and increasingly ominous for dirty officials at the top of Obama-era law enforcement and intelligence agencies,” Charles Lipson writes in RealClearPolitics. “These defenders of the old guard are sliming Attorney General Bill Barr, who heads the investigation into their actions . . . Barr won’t be deterred. He did not return for a second stint as AG to pad his résumé or protect Donald Trump. He returned to clean out the Augean Stables.”

They fear years of abuse will be exposed.

The initial evidence will come from two sources: a major report by DoJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and the steady declassification of underlying documents by AG Barr, who was given that task by the president. Barr needed that authority because the FBI and intelligence community are resisting disclosure with all their institutional power. They fear years of abuse will be exposed.

These are very serious charges, and, if proven, serious crimes. What makes them worse — far worse — is that they may well be connected to each other. If they are, they would represent a high-level conspiracy by government officials, appointed by one party and directed at political opponents during and after an election.

Now, we need to know if the U.S. government itself worked secretly and illegally to prevent his election and, when that failed, to damage his new presidency. That conspiracy would be equally serious, and for the same reasons. It needs to be rooted out, exposed, and punished.

From Rush Limbaugh:

Abuse of Power: Robert Mueller covers up Corruption in Justice System

robert mueller nazi hitler mustacheHe didn’t add to anything. He continued the injustice of all of this. “If we had evidence the president did not commit a crime, if we had confidence the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so.” That’s not what you do in this country. If you have evidence he did commit a crime, you say so, but you can’t say so and you haven’t said so and you won’t say so because there isn’t any.

You [Robert Mueller]

  • interviewed 500 witnesses.
  • had over a million documents.
  • put people in jail.
  • sweated people.
  • destroyed their lives.
  • wiped them out financially.

 

And you still don’t have any evidence! And yet you do an eight-minute little press conference today with no questions where you imply the president did it?

But you can’t find any evidence. And so then you turn it over to Congress. That’s what everybody heard: The Constitution has a remedy for prosecutorial paralysis. When prosecutors can’t prosecute then Congress takes over.

Trump authorizes Declassification of Documents to reveal True Crimes by Clinton Foundation, Iran Deal

[Declassification to reveal] Potential target issues could include:

clinton obama uranium one deal(1) an investigation of Uranium One;

(2) an investigation of the Clinton Foundation; and,

(3) an investigation of matters related to payments to Iran.

Treasury would come into play with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS); which was part of the Uranium One process and also included the Dept. of Energy.  Additional related matters could include George Papadopoulos $10k (Treasury); and The Clinton Foundation.  [Obviously this is supposition, but there are not too many alternate investigative pathways for intelligence within Treasury and Energy.]

Attkisson: Intel insiders feared Trump would expose them

‘There’s a bigger overarching theme’ to Mueller report

deep stateThere’s no doubt that many of the allegations prompting Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation had a political origin. After all, the probe was fueled by an opposition-research document funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

But investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson believes there’s much more to it.

She points to a cadre of intelligence officials, part of what has been called the “deep state” of career bureaucrats, who feared outsider Donald Trump would expose years of criminal acts in his effort to “drain the swamp.”

“Based on my info, we may be missing an important point in all this,” she said via Twitter on Thursday after the release of the Mueller report, which concluded the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.

“People keep pointing to ‘political bias’ in the 2016 capers. I’m not discounting that, but there’s a bigger overarching theme, I think. Important intel officials also did not want @realDonaldTrump because … (cont) … @realDonaldTrump and his admin stood to expose alleged longstanding criminal wrongdoing within intel agencies. Not just what happened in 2015-2016. Some officials were/are desperately fighting for their lives/freedom.”

Top Obama administration officials, including CIA Director John Brennan, seized on the now-debunked, anti-Trump “dossier” of Russian propaganda compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele and funded by Democrats.

Pro-Life News: Abortion numbers decline; Abortion funding cut

Pro-Life News:

Abortion numbers decline; Abortion funding cut

Abortions, clinic numbers continue decline

May 2019 – From 2012 to 2018, the total number of abortion clinics in the U.S. decreased by 159, leaving the total number of U.S. abortion clinics at 697. Of that 697, 467 are surgical clinics, and 230 are non-surgical clinics that provide the “abortion pill.” While total numbers sound positive, it is not a good sign that abortion-pill providers increased by 17 clinics (from 213 to 230) in 2018 alone.

From a longer perspective, in 1991, there were 2,176 surgical abortion facilities in the country. The current number – 467 – represents a 79% decrease over the 27 years.

Incidentally, the number of abortions reported in 1991 was 1,388,937, compared to approximately 881,000 in 2017, a 37% decrease.

Though abortion numbers are down overall, and the total number of abortion clinics continues to decrease, the prevalence of non-surgical abortion-pill clinics is creeping up. (See Unplanned movie review here to learn more about abortion pill procedures and the reality of their use.)

New poll shows significant pro-life shift

May 2019 – A February Marist survey of over 1,000 adults revealed that Americans made a sudden and dramatic shift toward a pro-life position in the aftermath of publicized pushes toward late-term abortion in states such as New York and Virginia.

Founded in 1978, the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion has conducted the independent research on public priorities, elections, and a wide variety of social issues that reflect the pulse of the nation. The survey found that 47% of Americans now identify as pro-life. The same number are pro-abortion (survey used the word pro-choice). A month earlier, the same poll found that only 38% identified as pro-life.

Among subgroups (not reflected in the chart) Democrats and young adults led the shift. Previously, Democrats identified as 20% pro-life, compared to 34% in the most recent poll. The position of Americans under age 45 (regardless of political affiliation) moved from 28% pro-life to 47% pro-life.

HHS cuts abortion funding

May 2019 – On February 22, the Trump administration finalized a rule cutting Title X family planning funds to clinics that provide or refer for abortions.

The HHS fact sheet concerning the rule, established in 1970, states, “From the start, Congress was clear that Title X funds cannot be used to support abortion.” However, Planned Parenthood, the biggest abortion provider in the country, has been receiving $60 million of Title X funds annually.

Under the rule, known as the Protect Life Rule, no funds are provided without “clear financial and physical separation between Title X funded projects and programs or facilities where abortion is a method of family planning.” In addition, the rule prohibits “referral for abortion as a method of family planning. [It] does not bar nondirective counseling on abortion, but eliminates the requirement that Title X providers offer abortion counseling
and referral.”

The new rule was set to take effect 60 days from the date published in the Federal Register.

According to Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life, the Title X program, which disperses $286 million annually, will now offer a wider range of services, life-affirming options, and better regulatory oversight at federally qualified health centers, which outnumber abortion centers 20 to 1.

The new rule does not, however, affect Planned Parenthood’s and other abortion clinics’ ability to file claims and receive payment from Medicaid – also taxpayer funds.

World’s smallest baby – 9.45 ounces – now 7 pounds

May 2019 – An infant in Tokyo, born in August 2018 via emergency C-section at just 24 weeks gestation, was finally released from Keio University Hospital on February 20. The baby’s official birthweight was 9.45 ounces, making him the smallest surviving baby boy in the world – a record previously held by a child born in Germany in 2009, weighing just 9.6 ounces.

Doctors determined the preterm birth was necessary when they discovered the baby was not gaining weight and his life was in danger. Since his birth he had been carefully monitored in the neonatal intensive care unit, where he had grown to just over seven pounds at the time of his discharge.

The physician who treated the tiny baby, Dr. Takeshi Arimitsu, said, “I want people to know that babies can return home vigorous even if they are
born small.”

True Crime and Abuse of Power exposed: Rigged Election, by Hillary Clinton and James Comey

Abuse of Power

Rigged Election, by Hillary Clinton and James Comey

Rush Limbaugh

RUSH:. There isn’t gonna be any investigation of Fusion GPS. That’s not what this was. This special counsel report was to look into whether or not Trump colluded, not Hillary. This is what’s dead wrong with this. You know, folks, everything that they alleged — and I’m not exaggerating — everything that the media and whoever else, the FBI, Comey, DOJ, this whole bunch, everything they’ve alleged happened, actually did happen with Hillary Clinton.

An election was rigged, the Democrat primaries. A computer was hacked, a network was hacked, the DNC network was hacked, and by the Russians. But the DNC would not let the FBI forensically examine it. The FBI has never seen the DNC server. They turned that over to a third-party outsource group called CrowdStrike.

An election was rigged. Bernie Sanders knows it. Hillary Clinton, the Democrat National Committee rigged an election and they conspired with Russians via the dossier that they hired, paid Christopher Steele to write, they’re the ones that colluded with Russians. They are the ones that were engaged in an effort to rig the presidential election!

Not only was the FBI trying to rig the primary election for Hillary Clinton against Crazy Bernie, they were all trying to rig the presidential election for Hillary Clinton as well. There are two elections here that the people investigating Trump literally tried to rig. ‘Cause make no mistake about it, this investigation so-called that started in 2015, 2016 because everybody was afraid that there were Russian spies, Russian agents in the Trump campaign, that Trump was a tool, that Trump was a traitor, that Trump was a Russian agent, that all was not an investigation. That was an attempt to rig the election.

They first tried to destroy Trump’s primary candidacy. Then they tried to destroy the presidential election, or to rig that. When that didn’t work, they tried to dismantle Trump’s transition period. And then they went on and after Trump was inaugurated, they continued the effort which began as an effort to rig the election, doing everything they could to convince the American people Trump was a mistake, to turn against him so that he could be impeached.

There were two elections that Strzok Smirk and McCabe and all these people, Comey, were engaged in rigging, and both of them were for Hillary Clinton. And neither one of those is being investigated by Mueller. That’s what Barr is talking about investigating.

Clapper then directed the attention away from himself onto Trump, before trying to shed Obama in a positive light.

If it weren’t for President Obama, we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set off a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today … notably, special counsel Mueller’s investigation.”

He then credited Obama for masterminding the probe orchestrated to incriminate Trump.

“President Obama is responsible for that, and it was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place,” Clapper continued. “I think it’s an important point when it comes to critiquing President Obama.”

Socialism Fails again: Green New Deal Vote Results—NO Senate Votes supported it

Socialism Fails again:

Green New Deal Vote Results—NO Senate Votes supported it

Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’ Fails In Senate. NO Senators Supported It.

By Ryan Saavedra

More A.F. Branco cartoons at FlagAnd Cross.com here.

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) “Green New Deal” overwhelmingly failed in the Senate on Tuesday when it was put to a vote, as not a single senator voted in support of it.

“Not a single senator backed her bill during the vote, a 57-0 filibuster,” The Washington Times reported. “Forty-three Democrats voted ‘present,’ refusing to take a stand.”

“Republicans said it was a devastating blow to the democratic socialist movement’s marquee proposal, which called for an upheaval in American energy, overhaul of the construction sector, and the largest expansion in history of the social safety net,” the Times added.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he was putting the far-left proposal to a vote to see which Democrats supported it.

“The American people will see,” McConnell said before the vote. “They’ll see which senators are so fully committed to radical left-wing ideology that they can’t even vote ‘no’ on self-inflicted economic ruin that would take a sledgehammer to America’s middle class.”

The Times noted that even Democrat Senator Ed Markey, who co-authored the bill with Ocasio-Cortez, did not vote for it.

Ocasio-Cortez responded to the Senate’s rejection of her “Green New Deal” by claiming on Twitter that she told Democratic Senators not to vote for it and to instead vote “present.”
