AG Barr has always been a goon that will do whatever he is told even when he is committing a crime…..(but that has been covered before)……our Orange president has thumped his chest about re-opening the country consequences be damn……and now like a good little lap dog Barr has threatened states that Trump is pissed with…..
Among those not happy with the strict stay-home orders in place across much of America: William Barr. The attorney general said Tuesday that the orders, which he called “disturbingly close to house arrest,” did their job—but their time is now passing. “There are very, very burdensome impingements on liberty,” he told radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt, per NBC News and NPR. “And we adopted them for the limited purpose of slowing down the spread. We didn’t adopt them as the comprehensive way of dealing with this disease. We are now seeing that these are bending the curve, and we have to come up with more targeted approaches.”
He acknowledged that many of the restrictions imposed by various governors are within the powers granted to states to protect public health, but said some of them may interfere with interstate commerce, which is under the jurisdiction of the federal government. In cases where governors go “too far,” he said, “we’ll have to address that.” He noted that one course of action might involve the federal government joining lawsuits fighting the restrictions. “I’m not saying [ordering people to stay home] wasn’t justified. I’m not saying in some places it might still be justified,” Barr added. “But it’s very onerous, as is shutting down your livelihood.”
Then there is Trump’s “lovefest” with the Saudis…….Trump promised that he would help families of the dead get to the bottom of their suspicions…..Barr has reneged on that promise (which means Trump has for Barr does not take a poop without Trump’s permission)….
The move comes after President Donald Trump promised to help families, who accuse Saudi Arabia of complicity in the attacks. Barr says he cannot even explain why the material must stay secret without putting national security at risk.
Months after President Donald Trump promised to open FBI files to help families of the 9/11 victims in a civil lawsuit against the Saudi government, the Justice Department has doubled down on its claim that the information is a state secret.
In a series of filings just before a midnight court deadline on Monday, the attorney general, William Barr; the acting director of national intelligence, Richard Grenell; and other senior officials insisted to a federal judge in the civil case that further disclosures about Saudi connections to the 9/11 plot would imperil national security.
Barr is helping the Saudis with their PR campaign that is trying to smooth over their numerous human rights abuses….
the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has faced a new round of negative publicity over its partnership with MiSK, the private foundation of Saudi dictator Mohammed bin Salman (MbS). In the latest headlines, UNESCO sought to distance itself from alleged Saudi spy Ali Alzabarah, a MiSK official who faces trial in absentia in the United States for allegedly spying for Saudi officials while employed by Twitter.
The recent news offers insights into MbS’s ongoing strategies to build power. Through MiSK and other efforts, MbS is attempting to build an aura of legitimacy in the public arena while continuing his tactics of repression at home and abroad. Sometimes, MbS is even employing the same people to do both.
AG Barr is a spineless sycophant and the sooner we dump his ass the sooner some dignity will return to the DOJ.
