A key excerpt from AG William Barr's speech.

twitter.com...

Does this sound like a man who is merely complaining?

One who is afraid to use the power afforded the Attorney General of the United States?

The executive branch isn't eroding. It's gotten more power post 9/11.


He makes some very interesting points though. Go on, give it a listen, then you can refute the arguments.

Simply put, I think it is a mandatory lecture for anyone that gives a damn about this country and thinks that they know why there is so much turmoil in politics and government.

He stepped up to the plate and used the constitution as the framework for everything he said.

Bravo!

Barr is a partisan political hack job, a man who fit the bill and said nothing but yes.

America needs to wake up.


Ah, there it is. The liberal drive by.

Thanks for the summary link...some main points made by Barr:


"I don't deny that Congress has some implied authority, but the sheer volume of what we see today, the pursuit of scores of parallel investigations through an avalanche of subpoenas, is plainly designed to incapacitate the executive branch and indeed is touted as such," Barr said.

Barr also invoked the movie "Vice" and a scene depicting a young Dick Cheney plotting a "new nefarious theory that will allow them to just take over the world"-- by giving more power to the president. But Barr said the pushes by the president in recent administrations have attempted to keep the balance of powers in check.

"One of the more amusing aspects of modern progressive polemic is their breathless attacks on the unitary executive theory. Blah!" Barr said, pausing with his arms out and eyes bugging, as if imitating a ghost.

"They portray this as some newfangled theory to justify executive power of sweeping and unfettered scope," he continued.

He also grew serious, describing the loosely organized movement of progressives known as the "resistance" as akin to an "occupying military power" that was "dangerous" and "indeed incendiary" to the American political system.

Barr saved some of his harshest fire for federal judges -- who have routinely shot down attempts by the President to flex executive power and protect his administration's choices -- no matter their political motivations. He discussed judicial rulings that put Trump's travel ban on hold, for instance.

Barr accused judges of acting "like amateur psychiatrists attempting to discern an executive official's real motive, often after ordering invasive discovery into the executive branch's privileged decision-making process."

Something was about to pop ever since Trump became president, however nothing has of yet.
That's why you guys have that Q thread where you scrape the bottom by finding evidence of liberal crimes in Trump typos on Twitter.
Nothing significant will happen this time either.
Oh, is Hillary in jail by now?
Lol

You're going to really like when the Attorney General announces indictments, with Durham standing to his left, and Horowitz standing to his right.



LONG long overdue....but then nothing in Government moves quickly (except cover-ups)

This time, it's good the DOJ is being sensitive to how the 2016/2017 cover-up is revealed to the American public. Senator Lindsey Graham has met with A.G. Barr twice on this. Millions will be disappointed/shocked that the Obama Administration stooped so low.

I don't disagree...but never make the mistake of not being crystal clear that the timing on this is not coincidental.

No true conservative, libertarian or liberal should be supporting an increase in the power and scope of the Executive.

That I see so many posts here in support of Barr’s nonsense, tells me that the strongest political faction here is AUTHORITARIAN.

Return all parts of the Federal Government to Constitutional limits.

Yes. Sounds like a man saying sure, Trump isn't what his mentalist cult followers wanted him to be, the great failed white hope. They put their eggs in a billionaires basket. 😁😁🥚
They should not have... Slime and sleeze and assumptions of complete power weren't the best tactics if one wanted to undo Obama cluster forks.

Barrs basically saying Trump had no "business" in the executive branch of the United States of America.




The fact is, that, yes, while the president has certainly thrown out the traditional beltway playbook and punctilio, he was upfront about what he was going to do and the people decided that he was going to serve as president."

Indeed. On all points.

Rather curious that this speech is getting so much play all over the webz... and so quickly.

The truth in most of barrs statements are immediately negated by his lack of criticism of Trump in his blatant suppression witness testimonies.

The democrats, in some of their actions, became uglier than what they accused Trump. Which is why, with all this madness by Trump , the Democrats never have the country rallying behind them. Too many "under the rug sweepers" in the democratic camp... many likely having group sex with subordinates right now.

Trump is a sleeze ball, but you did the same things he did in order to expose his sleeze? If you're OK with that as a demo, you're no better than mentalist trumpsters; fanatic and populist politics are always catalysts in a failed state.

...because we are people of various opinions and that perhaps this resonates with a lot of people.

Your opinion of his speech is noted and that's all.
