Looking for Mr. Good Barr in all the wrong places?

So were those hopes for AG Barr’s pending justice in vain, once again, misplaced or wildly unjustified to begin with? Have we engaged in another game of wait and see only to, in the end, see nothing warranting the long wait? The odds are not good either.

Has the Deep State beaten Bill Barr?

By Todd Gregory and Erik Gregory [excerpts]

“Among law-and-order conservatives and defenders of Trump, it was widely hoped that Barr would be an A.G. unintimidated by the Deep State, with the intestinal fortitude to push back against a DOJ corrupted by progressive lawyers and grandiose bureaucrats blinded by their irrational and atavistic hatred for Trump. Perhaps Barr might even mete out long delayed justice to the chief plotters,”…./

“Barr was confirmed on Valentine’s Day 2019. In the year since Barr’s confirmation, conservative stalwarts from Roger Simon to Sean Hannity have sung the praises of Barr and his deputy, John Durham, all but guaranteeing criminal indictments any day now against senior members of the Obama administration (which had spied on Trump’s campaign and colluded with multiple foreign actors to subvert American democracy, both before and after the 2016 election)”…/.

“Skeptical conservative voters were admonished to be patient, and that the likes of Comey, Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, and Brennan would soon be charged for their crimes and jailed. Yet, amid the frantic waving of pom-poms, something perfectly predictable happened on the way to the Deep State’s day of reckoning. The days turned to into weeks, the weeks into months, and now a full year.”

Still waiting, and waiting!

Maybe the one thing that will shock the conscience in the end is that there will be no accountability for it all? America that cannot be, can it?

This Is Not Normal

This Is Not Normal

IG Horwitz testifies to Senate Judiciary Committee on the IG Report on Trump investigation and FISA abuse.

That should be the headline across the country. The Senate committee looked into the IG Report and discovered that this is not normal. It is anything but normal.

Yes people, normal is now gone. It has been replaced by what we have seen happen in 2016, then continuing 3 years in various forms. To some extent, right up until today.

Headed For Disappointment?

With all the political flares going off and the long awaited IG Horowitz report due out in a month, are we headed for a disappointment? I would hate to see the odds on that.

On Friday, two Ukrainians were arrested for election fraud, who were also associates of Rudy Giuliani. Already the attempt to connect him to any crimes is escalating. What’s new?

The Horowitz report is supposed to be shocking. I’ve heard every adjective imaginable to describe it as something that will shock the conscience. But I wouldn’t bet on that. I mean what could really shock the public’s conscience anymore? So that seems a bit overplayed.

The “conscience” is a very high bar.

But in the worst case scenario, Horowitz’s report does not go far enough and deep enough, then it could really be dismissed with a yawn. My bet is more on that. After all, there is another investigation led by Durham already cranked up which is supposed to be a deep dive. I expect the IG to take a pass to divert and fall short in view of that.

We seem to have been handed one disappointment after another on these investigations and probes since Hillary emailgate. Actually since Benghazi. The record is clear that Deep State has a way of covering up its tracks and protecting its own.

I think we could compare it to wild fires in California or out West. When they appear out of control and spreading, people who live there feel at a loss for what they can do. The same feeling could apply to the Deep State corruption and coup. At least with the fires you have hundreds of people working on them and putting them out is the only goal.

So judging by all this reaction to any real investigations, it seems like Trump has been the only person who could have brought this out and stirred it all up. But the mission has to be completed. That will take some creativity.

Disappointment my be right around the corner but the mission still goes on.

Give Me A Break

Give me a freaking break is one of my favorite lines I repeat to myself lately. No one hears me. It just flows out of my mouth more frequently than any other phrase. There are hosts of reasons for it.

The main one is outrage, mostly at Democrat talking points or narratives. It seems almost every time you turn on the TV news or read something, there is that reaction in there. Someone is trying to con someone or twists something completely wrong. Show me any subject and I’ll have a “give me a break” moment somewhere about it.

Why is partly the way politics has become. And in part because of how low down the ladder we have gotten, or in many cases how backwards everything now is.

Judging by what I see on Twitter and media, I’d say a lot of people probably think the same thing and feel the same way. I also think most people see what is going on and understand it. They wouldn’t need anyone to explain it to them because they know what this movie is about and where it is going. In short, they are not dummies.

Now the media might think people are dumb, that they can spoon feed people along to believe what they want about issues. Whoa, do they underestimate the knowledge of regular informed people? Maybe at one time, years ago, they could get away with that but not today. I see it in focus groups and in conversations on social media. They’re in no mood to be bullied around on politics either. They know too much and have too much experience to be duped. All that said, those are not everyone.

Now I say this because these are the parameters for my conclusions. Others, like media, have different parameters that lead them to believe people are impressionable and pliable on their central basic opinions, based on information and narratives they selectively curate to give them. The media may be right about some percentage of voters on the Left. But I know that theory does not hold up on the conservative right. Here on the right people have preformed opinions for a reason.

 

Another idea I have given lots of thought to is conspiracy theories in general and people that hold them. I have concluded some people prefer to dabble in them. And we have had a lot of reason these days to give rise to conspiracies. Maybe they’re trendy and cool? The JFK thing, while decades old, is still a viable high water mark.

But for the last several years, there is another big one on the horizon. The moon landing. I might have been surprised at hearing that one many years ago. But it has a following. Of course there is now the 911 conspiracies, too. So there are many of them and they range from environment to government. But I have noticed a trend that for some people, if they carry one conspiracy they likely have several.

Now we saw the media for 2 and a half years promote the Russia Trump collusion conspiracy with little to base it on. And that there was no push back on it, even from some media, was astounding. But these are the same media people who lectured us about anything we said about Obama for the previous eight years that we were crazy. Actually, the truth was much crazier than fiction. Now it turns out some of those conspiracies were not so crazy after all. They have now been validated by the facts.

Suffice it to say that if you traveled off of the central narratives the media was carrying in the Obama years, you were labeled a conspiracy nut. It was their enforcement mechanism to try to coral people on their main narrative — constructed also in tandem with the White House and West Wing. They, the media, didn’t mind doing it either. They were as heavily invested in creating the narrative as the Obama administration was. But anyone who ventured outside that narrative was the enemy, and they usually let you know it, using all the tools of the mainstream media.

You were mocked, ridiculed, ostracized and marginalized, attacked, humiliated, ruined, and robbed of your good reputation and character. In other words, you were destroyed if you were not on their bandwagon of misinformation. To call that a conspiracy theory was, well, Orwellian. It was 1984-ish. To think in terms of questioning Obama or their carefully crafted narrative was sedition and treasonous. It was as if we completely lost the press. And we did, though it was right from the beginning.

I don’t know if conspiracies represent a threat, given the amount of people that buy into them? But the moon one sort of stunned me. It sneaked up over the last 20 years. If it is cool or whatever that still puzzles me. Though now the left has demonstrated the real danger of a conspiracy with the Russia thing. They’ve shown how you can push a narrative whether it is believable or not. And they showed what mainstreaming conspiracy theories looks like.

You know, it is normally those on the margins who buy into a conspiracy. Now I am back to thinking about what the real point of them is. This Russia one was a matter of convenience and extreme importance, cooked up for convenience and served to masses as established fact. (Intelligence agencies like CIA know how to do that) If it is possible to push a fake narrative until it is mainstream, then what about skeptics who don’t believe in it?. Those who require proof or evidence… or doesn’t that even matter anymore?

Can a conspiracy theory be totally false, yet who cares that it is not true? And what would it take to rupture that huge conspiracy? It went on for over 2 and half years and still goes on. We are in a whole new realm. The Moon landing might have been an achievement for conspiracies but we have gone way past the dark side of the moon now.

Maybe the only point that matters is who believes in it and who doesn’t? To say nothing about the scenario of media and government teaming up on a conspiracy theory.

You can now call me conspiratorial but that is where we are at now. Who exactly believes in it? You would have been considered a wacko-bird for saying Obama was not born in America. But if you want to think the President is a Russian agent, then you would be welcomed by mainstream media and elites alike. It might help your career.

Strange how this conspiracy thing really works, isn’t it? In fact, lets go out of our way to avoid all the evidence to the contrary. And let’s go way out to block real facts and truth as it comes out. No need for that! Which one will write history? I think I know.
