AG Barr Lights BLM Up, Liberal Tears Flowing Strong This Week

Liberal tears are flowing like a mighty river this week after Attorney General William Barr went on a tour of the network news studios. After comparing liberal prosecutors to preschoolers and the Covid quarantine lockdown to slavery-like repression, he really lit things up when he supported the police over Black lives.

Barr insists protesters don’t care about Black Lives

Attorney General William Barr infuriated left leaning progressives even more when he had the nerve to attack the Black Lives Matter movement as “politically motivated” and accused them of handpicking “police crimes to push their agenda.” Which they are.

“These so called Black Lives Matter people, they’re not interested in Black lives.” Less than a dozen people a year are being used as props to advance the agenda.

While no one can quibble that the lives of Black people matter, AG Barr relates, “people aligned with the movement that has grown under that slogan” have perverted it into a rally cry for anarchy.

“They’re interested in props,” because they have a much broader political agenda.” The real issue is that “the rule of law is the foundation of civilization including economic prosperity.” he views the question as not only one “of keeping people alive but also having prosperity and flourishing in their communities.”

AG Barr is the top ranking law enforcement officer in America. That means, he reminded his audience at Hillsdale College, “he had the right to intervene in investigations and to overrule career lawyers.” He’s the big cheese and he likes to exercise his authority.

“Because I am ultimately accountable for every decision the department makes, I have an obligation to ensure we make the correct ones,” he asserts. He isn’t happy with the bias he sees in his Justice Department.

Well within his power

Because, Barr argues, it was well within his power as the attorney general “to be the final arbiter in all cases before the Justice Department.” He would “like to be able to say that we don’t see headhunting at the Department of Justice, but that would not be truthful.

It is a temptation sometimes to go after people rather than crimes.” The way Barack Obama’s plumbers went after Carter Page, Michael Flynn, and Donald Trump.

In order to prevent further abuse of the system, there have to be some boundary fences set up to keep federal authorities from crossing the lines. “Advocating for clear and defined prohibitions will sometimes mean we cannot bring charges against someone whom we believe engaged in questionable conduct,” Barr accepts.

However, there is a real good reason to do it that way. “But that is what it means to have a government of laws and not of men. We cannot let our desire to prosecute ‘bad’ people turn us into the functional equivalent of the mad emperor Caligula.”

Hopefully, that doesn’t mean that the tone is softening on the Durham probe. While America is howling for blood of the criminals who were behind the weaponization of the Justice Department and FBI against Donald Trump as an attempt to rig the election then overthrow a sitting president. We know who the people are who were in charge.

The people are demanding actual enforcement of the laws and criminal prosecutions to the full extent of that law for each and every criminal perpetrator from the bottom to the top. Anything short of meaningful and fair justice has the potential to start more riots. Attorney General Barr certainly means well, but will he have the fortitude to finish the job? That’s the question everyone is asking.

  1. Now unless I was taught wrong in Yale law school , it is not and never has been the job of the AG to defend the President of this USA. Barr has become totally political in his job and that is contrary to what the Constitution says the AG job is. Now when the protests have been held to a very small area in every city they are in, that does look like a good job done by the mayors and police, now it seems Barr has an objection to anything to do with modernizing the4 police and having a national standard that all police must work under, Barr seems to want police to have a free hand and no accountability for their actions.

    • I have provided a copy of the Attorney General’s Oath of Office and what his principle duties are:
      “I, affiants name, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
      The principal duties of the Attorney General are to:
      • Represent the United States in legal matters.

      • Supervise and direct the administration and operation of the offices, boards, divisions, and bureaus that comprise the Department.

      • Furnish advice and opinions, formal and informal, on legal matters to the President and the Cabinet and to the heads of the executive departments and agencies of the government, as provided by law.

      • Make recommendations to the President concerning appointments to federal judicial positions and to positions within the Department, including U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals.

      • Represent or supervise the representation of the United States Government in the Supreme Court of the United States and all other courts, foreign and domestic, in which the United States is a party or has an interest as may be deemed appropriate.

      • Perform or supervise the performance of other duties required by statute or Executive Order.
      Please cite examples where Mr. Barr has violented either or both.
      You also contend the mayors have done a good job containing the rioting and looting, but are you aware that Portland has had over 100 days of rioting and that the cost in to insurance carriers is above two billion dollars. Furthermore, may I point out that rioting is an unlawful assembly, a possible felonious crime, and that looting is also considered a felonious crime.
      You won’t see this on CNN or MSNBC but the President with the advice of Attorney General Barr has propose attaching standardized training procedures for all law enforcement agencies. Please look at the cities of New York, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, and Los Angeles and other cities that have defunded or adopted regulations that prevent the police from providing their primary duty of public safety have see dramatic increases in violent crimes, homicides, armed robbery and other serious victim crimes.
      I suggest that Black Lives Matter is misnamed and should be called “Some Black Lives Matter” as there is no mention of the many black individuals murdered every day, especially in
      the cities named above and the black police officers that have given their lives performing their duties and two examples would be David Dorn and Tamarris Bohannon, both murdered execution style.
      I propose you were not taught wrong at Yale Law School but suggest you must have missed some classes

    • Robert, were you sleeping through the 8 years of black boy. Remember Holder said he was Barry’s wing man. So, you libtards that post your crap, should keep quiet. Funny what libtards can’t remember.

  2. Same ol’, same ol’, blah…blah…blah. “Investigate” incessantly on the taxpayers’ dime, never prosecute the big players. (Except some unlucky, under-the-bus underling bagmen to satiate the bleating sheep.)

  3. Exactly Barr is defending us and our Constitution against Domestic enemies (black lives matter organization). Stop attacking him. God Bless America
