Et tu, William Barr?

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Wait. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were married? – Tongue-wagging pop star Miley Cyrus and movie heartthrob Liam Hemsworth announced they were splitting over the weekend and the big news in all of that for me was that they were actually married in the first place. But here’s the good news, folks – the couple both say they will still remain dedicated parents to their childr…er, pets:

“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” a rep for Cyrus told PEOPLE on Saturday. “Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”

Good god who cares.

You can judge the quality of a Trump nominee by who his friends aren’t. – Last Thursday, President Trump named his new acting director of ODNI, Counterterrorism Center Director Joseph Maguire. Maguire will assume his new job on August 15, the day that current ODNI Director Dan Coats leaves arm-in-arm with his allegedly-leaky deputy Sue Gordon.

Whenever this President has named a replacement for one of the high-ranking intelligence posts in the past, it has been very easy to tell whether he’s made a good choice or not by looking to see who weighs in to publicly endorse him. If all the Usual Suspects from the Obama years take to Twitter or CNN or MSNBC to give the person a hearty endorsement, you can be sure that person will change nothing for the better.

For example, Christopher Wray’s nomination to lead the FBI was greeted with gleeful endorsements from the likes of John Brennan, James Clapper, Sally Yates and all the other swamp creatures. Just-fired James Comey even had nice things to say about Wray, if memory serves. All of which helps to explain why, more than two years later, the FBI remains a raging dumpster fire of incompetence and duplicity and a roadblock to the declassification of documents related to the Spygate scandal.

On the contrary, when President Trump first named John Ratcliffe to become Coats’s permanent replacement in the ODNI job, the Swamp creatures wasted no time in blasting him, a clear indication that Ratcliffe would have represented a clear and present danger to the destructive status quo that exists within the nation’s firmly-embedded intelligence community.

What is interesting about Maguire is not who has spoken out about him, but who hasn’t. Four days after his naming, and we have yet to hear a peep out of any of the Usual Suspects. Not a word from John Brennan; not a peep out of Comey; not a mumble out of Clapper or Rosenstein or McCabe. Radio silence from the creatures of the swamp.

That lack of endorsement or attack means one of two things: It could mean that the Usual Suspects finally figured out that their messages of public approval of a fellow skunk are really counterproductive. Or it could mean that they aren’t sure whether Maguire represents a friend or a foe. If it’s the former, we’ll find out the hard way soon enough, because ODNI will continue to serve as the same final roadblock to declassification that it has ably and consistently performed under Coats. If it’s the latter, then it’s likely the Usual Suspects are just biding their time to see which way Maguire will jump once he assumes his new job.

Two and a half years into the Trump presidency and we are left with the feeling that uncertainty would at least be progress. Baby steps.

And speaking of declassification… – 83 days have now passed since the President ordered Attorney General William Barr to assume full discretion over the process of declassifying all the documents that his employees at the DOJ and FBI have spent the last three years desperately hiding from the American people.

So what do we have after 83 days? Bupkis. The Bruce Ohr 302s released last week were the result of a court order in a case brought by Judicial Watch – Barr had nothing to do with them.

From Barr and his Department of “Justice”, we have bupkis. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

Over the weekend, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, which also happens to reside under the not-so-watchful eye of the Barr DOJ, did its best imitation of Jack Bauer’s fictional “CTU” from the old TV series “24”, losing its highest-profile prisoner to an alleged “suicide”.

If you ever watched that show, you knew it was a foregone conclusion that any time Keifer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer character arrested a terrorist and brought him into custody at CTU, said terrorist would very quickly either be kidnapped or murdered right under the noses of what was supposed to be the nation’s most elite secret law enforcement unit. I used to guffaw about that every time it happened, but as time as gone on and we have seen the actual Keystone Cops nature of our real law enforcement and intelligence apparatus, I’ve come to realize that CTU was actually very true-to-life.

Mr. Barr has certainly talked a good game since assuming office early this year. But after six full months on the job, talk and lofty promises are all we have to show from his time at DOJ. We still have zero indictments of real wrong-doers, zero perp walks, and even worse, we now have the spectacle of the likes of Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok having such contempt for the DOJ that they are actually suing to get their old jobs back.

As of right now, Barr’s actual performance record is no better than what we got out of Jeff Sessions, and that ain’t good.

That is all.

    Epstein was someone’s asset; likely Chinese via ZTE. There’s a lot to dig through. Patience seems to be in order. A lot of people being blackmailed by China, potentially.

    “Look at Russia, not China!” Hillary et al screams. Wonder why.

  2. Jimmy MacAfee - August 12, 2019

    The Deep State was – and still is – planning a surrender to China; Hillary was an asset whose emails went straight to Beijing. Compromise, compromise everywhere you look. William Barr is NOT a Chinese asset, but Feinstein, Clinton and others are. Follow the sexcapades and the money trail.

    If Trump wins in 2020, which I really doubt, we will have 4 more years of Democrat interference from the Deep State. There is only one solution and it is not a pleasant one!!

    1. Jimmy MacAfee - August 12, 2019

      Are you suggesting sedition?

  4. Bill Zebob - August 12, 2019

    Agree completely about Barr. Especially after his response to the Epstein Murder. The FBI and the IG are on it? Is he f’ing? serious? One whitewashed the first report and the other is fresh off an attempted coup of the President that is being perpetuated by the MSM that has still seen no repercussions for it’s gratuitous propaganda. He is fast becoming a joke.

    1. Irene McDowall Hansen - August 12, 2019

      He’s just another puppet, we can’t expect anything at all from him other than cover ups!

  5. Don McCoy - August 12, 2019

    Nothing changes…Barr know’s how to LOOK serious, and he knows what to say…but other than that nothing has changed.

  6. Cameron Howe - August 12, 2019

    Why is this investigation not under the purview of the US Marshals Service, instead of the FBI?

    1. jtthedestroyer - August 12, 2019

      Attorney General Barr was informed of the operation or he would not have posted his response to the “suicide” at 9PM the night before it happened. Military involvement would be necessary for air transport. Who wants him alive? His video tape blackmail evidence is in police custody. He certainly was not safe in a NY City prison regardless of DOJ management. Wexner was angling for a piece of Epstein’s estate four days before he “died”. It was not unexpected.

      1. David Blackmon - August 12, 2019

        Where in the world are you hearing that? Barr did no such thing. Don’t believe everything you see and hear on freaking Twitter.

  7. Jimmy MacAfee - August 12, 2019

    ZTE: Chinese company allegedly wiring Little St. James (spying?)
    Hollyweird: made NK enemy in Red Dawn (2) because they wanted to keep Chinese audience; Hollyweird is in the tank for pro-Chinese Deep State, because Hollyweird is out of money and is full of child predators and is liable for blackmail just as much as any Senator from the MidAtlantic.
    Feinstein: employed Chinese spy for 20 years – follow the money and meetings.
    Hillary: emails went straight to Chinese company, which went to Beijing. 17 operatives were killed by the Chinese.

    Dems: “Russia Russia Russia,” when it’s really China China China.
    May be that whitehats took Epstein for interrogation, Guantanamo?

    I’ve been aware of the possible ZTE connection for well over a year.
    This all has profound national security implications. As a result, some
    information will be forthcoming, and some cannot be released.
    As far as Declass goes: with the China connection becoming increasingly
    clear, the story gets more and more terrifying, and deeper by the minute.
    Declass will happen, and Judicial Watch is doing what bureaucracies cannot.

    Trust Barr.

    Least enviable job in the world? Medical examiner handling the body of “Jeffrey Epstein.” Andrew Breitbart’s coroner held a similar position. The Hawaiian official who had Obama’s birth certificate, another job you wouldn’t want to have.

  9. mario ruffino - August 12, 2019

    I had put my hope in Barr but as you state he has done or has accomplished absolutely nothing in six months, it appears that we have another Sessions.

  10. Jimmy MacAfee - August 12, 2019

    “Anyway, remember the Chinese phone maker ZTE? The one that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Democrats brokered a deal with, in order to have what they thought was a totally secure communication interface away from prying eyes? Well, in thinking that they had a totally secure network, it turns out, that it wasn’t secure at all. As was reportedly gathered and hinted at by said Q posts, that these elitists’ had used these ZTE phones on Epstein’s Island (and beyond) and all the while, the Chinese phone maker ZTE had been storing all the photos and videos and data on servers back in China. Now that’s some news that you may not be aware of!”

    China connection; Clinton connection.

    Dem connection to ZTE. Surprised? Podesta-the-alleged-molesta, and his brother the Spirit Cooker
    (his own emails say this.) Maybe his emails were hacked by the Chinese?

    Inexplicably, President Trump attempted to help ZTE later, in order to help relationships with Xi.
    The presumed answer to that help:

    China.
    Again.
    Beware; the fan is preparing to meet the offal.
