Why Did William Barr Meet with Rupert Murdoch?

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is going to be a fun, fun week. – Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe announced over the weekend that his group is going to be releasing a new series of confidential recording this week. The target of this project?

CNN. Check this out:

This week, a CNN insider will blow the whistle and through Project Veritas will release dozens of recordings made of officials at the highest levels of CNN, revealing a political agenda, bias and misconduct hidden from public view.

This series of tapes — which we think will be the biggest story of the year for Project Veritas — blends two extraordinary series of events; a brave insider secretly recording at work and a hard-hitting piece of hidden camera muckraking into one of the supposed “most trusted names in news.”

Oh, my. Somewhere, Brian Stelter is huddled in a broom closet, furiously consuming a sack of jelly donuts. What fun!

Are there really any coincidences in the DC Swamp?  –  Speaking of cable news outlets, here’s something to think about where Fox News is concerned: Last Thursday, the fake news media was filled with reports about Attorney General William Barr holding a meeting with Rupert Murdoch, Chairman of the Board for Fox News, the previous evening. Democrats were so alarmed about the meeting that they were all over CNN and MSNBC that day demanding a congressional investigation, even though there was no publicly-known reason for them to have any concern.

Of course, the Democrats have been in a bit of a frenzy to tarnish Barr’s reputation as he proceeds with his investigation into the origins of the coordinated DOJ/FBI/CIA/media efforts to deny Trump the presidency in 2016 and later to stage a coup d’etat to remove him from office, efforts that continue to this day. But the concern over this simple meeting seemed bizarrely overwrought, even in the context of that character assassination campaign, at least until Friday afternoon at 3:59 ET, when Shep Smith announced his “resignation” from his amazingly undeserved position at the cable news channel.

Remember that a big part of the Barr/John Durham investigation focuses on the massive leaking and cozy relationships with certain media members by the coup plotters within the government. It is also very important to remember that DOJ IG Michael Horowitz’s long-overdue FISA abuse report supposedly will be released late this week, and Horowitz has also been heavily-focused on the leaking issue.

The three things could be totally unconnected, but you can’t help wondering if Barr met with Murdoch to let him know what his investigation has discovered related to some of Fox’s employees and contributors, including some of its on-air “talent,” and their relationships with the Deep State coup participants. Certainly, no one among Fox’s on-air anchors has spent more time parroting the talking points of the Deep State more fervently over the past few years than Shep Smith has.

Again, it could all be just a big coincidence, and maybe Mr. Smith just got tired of being the cable channel’s poster child for the DC Swamp. Or maybe he got canned as a result of his on-air feud with the highly-rated Tucker Carlson. But I’ve never been much of a believer in coincidences.

Speaking of that on-air feud between Smith and Carlson, highly-paid Fox contributor Andrew Napolitano was at the center of all of that. As reported on September 25 by Vanity Fair:

The schism was evident this week as a feud erupted between afternoon anchor Shepard Smith and prime-time host Tucker Carlson. It started Tuesday when Fox legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano told Smith on-air that Trump committed a “crime” by pressuring Ukraine’s president to get dirt on Biden. That night, Carlson brought on former Trump lawyer Joe diGenova, who called Napolitano a “fool” for claiming Trump broke the law. Yesterday, Smith lashed back, calling Carlson “repugnant” for not defending Napolitano on air.

Of course, Vanity Fair omits the fact that “former Trump lawyer Joe diGenova” is also a former U.S. Attorney, and a very highly-regarded one. Because of course that’s what they did – that’s what the fake news media does. But I digress.

The thing to remember about Napolitano is that he had a very, very noticeable on-air transformation from being a Trump supporter one day to changing his on-air “legal analyses” into consistent anti-Trump rants the next. This transformation took place suddenly, shortly before the President publicly announced the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to become his second Supreme Court appointment. It is well-known that Napolitano actively lobbied the President for a Supreme Court nomination.

Here is what we also know without any doubt whatsoever: A large number of “journalists” and cable TV personalities are on the payroll of our intelligence agencies, and have been for more than half a century now. The convergence of all of these events could be mere coincidence, but it is certainly valid to wonder if Barr met with Murdoch as a courtesy call to give the media mogul a head’s up on which of his employees might be about to become implicated in some very major investigations.

The hyper-panicked reaction by the Democrats to what could well have been just a dinner between two old acquaintances indicates they’re a lot more worried about it than any reasonable person would be.


That is all.

The camera cut for a commercial and Fox security pulled Shep off stage onto the elevator and out the door. Persona non grata. Shep was terminated with extreme prejudice.

Giving him a heads up from his buddy @ the FCC? 🙂


The Barr has been raised.
We will see the rule of law enforced equally.

Fat chance. But dream on for 6 more years.


Jimmy, don’t be sorry. Appreciate your posts!

I’m sorry to post again, but I also suspect that Barr is warning Murdoch about coming charges against Donna Brazile, relating to multiple issues, some potentially very serious. Shep Smith and others also are probably under the gun, but Brazile’s chilling January tweet about “President Pelosi” is bizarre and would seem out of nowhere, unless you’ve considered the fact that the FBI thwarted a man who was planning to bomb the Whitehouse around that time. (We’ll see, won’t we?)

By the way, the “whistleblower,” as I had suspected/claimed in an earlier post, is a female who had been part of Open Society blahblah, part of George Soros’ NGOs. She won’t testify, because she was a Deep State plant and has a lot of questions that could be asked. Whatever she is blowing, it is not a whistle. Just sayin’.

With that, I suspect that Soros is spreading money around to the news media, which has a hard time selling ads except to car companies, pharmaceuticals and ambulance chasers. How many are funded by Soros? Well, the President DID expand a PEO (presidential Executive Order 13818 a few years ago, which I posted here at DB Daily Update:)


I suspect that a lot of money coming into the networks was from laundered or foreign sources, including some of Soros’ accounts. One of Biden’s actions, in removing the prosecutor, was intended to thwart an ongoing investigation of Soros, and Biden’s actions not only prevented the investigation of his son, but Soros as well.


“could well have been just a dinner between two old acquaintances” ???? Nah. Courtesy call. Barr is a gentleman and a professional. He did what professionals and gentlemen do. Gave the boss a heads up over who was going to get arrested/indicted.

Always Question Everything

But what if Barr is a swamp RAT like Sessions? Feeling sorry for Schleppy Sheppy and his $15 million a year?
Yea…not really. MSNBC or the Communist News Network will hire him for a reduction in pay.
If the Communist News Network has a steaming hot take and no one in the airport lounge or doctor’s waiting office heard it, did it really happen?


Stelter more likely hiding in a broom closet and spinning on a broom stick.

I’m guessing Rupe knew where a good chinese restaurant was.
