Yesterday, as Attorney General William Barr appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee to answer liberal claims about imaginary ‘crimes’ democrats are desperate to validate in the face of annihilation, Barr exposed the true hate and stupidity of the left.
Barr and President Donald Trump are standing on the bedrock of their constitutional power, and they have nothing to fear from the ineffective (disgusting) mud being hurled at them by the mainstream media and democrat haters.
The New York Post aptly summed up the treatment yesterday. It reported:
Events aren’t the conspiracy [democrats] are still trying to validate, even after special counsel Robert Mueller’s finding that there was no collusion, actual or attempted, between Trump’s camarilla and the Kremlin. Nor any prosecutable obstruction case.
Yet no sooner did Barr, under pressure for an early summary, send a sketch of Mueller’s report to Congress… the Democrats started suggesting he had spun the story in favor of the president. That was the guts of the hearing in the Senate.
He tweeted that Barr “knew that Mueller had serious concerns” about Barr’s summary report.
So what? Mueller didn’t accuse Barr of misrepresenting him.
He complained that Barr’s letter sketching the key elements of Mueller’s report didn’t “fully capture” the report’s “context, nature and substance.” What four-page sketch can fully capture a 448-page report?
It turns out that Mueller wanted the report released piecemeal. Barr overruled him. It looks similar to, say, a hapless middle-ranking editor (Mueller) caught between an activist staff (Mueller’s Clintonite investigators) and a hard-headed boss (Barr).
Happens all the time, even in the Justice Department. Prosecutors often disagree with investigators. Big whoop. Top brass frequently overrule them, too. That’s one of the things they are there for. It’s why they get paid the big bucks.
Which brings it back to Trump. He’s the constitutional adult in this drama. Of all the people in this country — including our judges and members of Congress — Trump is the only one empowered and commanded to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.
Immediately after issuing that command, the Constitution ordains that the president shall commission “all” the officers of the United States. In other words, it is the president who must enforce the law, and only he gets to pick the staff to do so. While he’s president, executive power flows from his very person.
No wonder Trump went into such rages at the suggestion that he can’t — or shouldn’t — fire the special counsel. For Democrats to suggest, as they continued to do in the Senate Wednesday, that it would be obstruction for Trump to fire Mueller is itself an obstruction.
It’s just weird for Sen. Kamala Harris to open the line of questioning she pursued Wednesday. She asked Barr whether Trump had suggested Barr prosecute anyone. Presidents don’t usually do that, and Barr stumbled a bit on the question.
At the end of the day, though, what would be wrong had Trump made such a suggestion? Since the president alone is commanded to faithfully execute the laws, it isn’t constitutionally kosher for Congress or a special counsel to try to restrict his freedom of action.
At one point Wednesday, Barr referred to Mueller’s letter to him as “snitty.” Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut then asked Barr whether he’d make available notes of one of his conversations with Mueller. Barr said he wouldn’t.
A final kick to the teeth of lying poseur "Danang Dick" Blumenthal leaves him slack-jawed & drooling as AG Barr ends a tour de force testimony beating back bad takes, bad logic & bad intentions from Dems.

So far, so good. Things would no doubt get nastier in the House, which was due to grill Barr Thursday, though he has reportedly declined the invite. The House has one enormous club that the Senate lacks, the power to initiate impeachment. Then, the power of the president to resist starts to fall away.
However, many people believe that democrats, regardless of how stupid they appear, are not stupid enough to actually begin impeachment proceeding without any proof whatsoever.
They will be guided by polls suggesting that a majority of people do not support impeachment, and will desperately try to maintain their very slim margin of support among the most ill-informed, ignorant slave-voters among the population.
Barr’s testimony also hinted at some additional developments, but many citizens will believe that when they see it.
Until then, democrats will continue to spread their fantastic tales and indulge in hyper-partisan, non-factual rhetoric that shows complete and utter contempt for the intelligence of the American voter.
No surprise there.
