William Barr Is Washington’s Worst Nightmare

David Catron, The American Spectator

The continued outrage and nonsense from the legacy media, combined with ridiculous claims by the Democrats that a man with William Barr’s record has no credibility and self-exculpatory balderdash from fabulists like John Brennan and James Comey, suggest that the real problem they have with the Attorney General is his blindingly obvious integrity. There are few things that scare the denizens of D.C. more than an honest man. The only thing they fear more is an honest man who doesn’t give a damn what they think of him. William Barr is their worst nightmare.

Progressives Face a Bleak Post-Mueller Landscape

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

What really explains the furor now directed at Barr? One, progressives are terrified that a number of Trump’s critics — Brennan, Clapper, Comey, McCabe — may soon be indicted. Two, the 2020 progressive agenda — whether defined as the Green New Deal, a wealth tax, Medicare for All, or open borders — will not compete well with Trump’s currently booming economy. Three, the Mueller investigation is over, finished after 22 months, $34 million, and a 448-page, two-volume report. So now what? Progressives are not willing to let the Mueller investigation rest in peace and move on with their lives. Perhaps they feel in the political sense that there is nothing to move on to. And they are probably right.

The walls are closing in on Obama

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker

The truth of violations of law by the Obama White House, long buried, is being excavated by two private groups. Judicial Watch has obtained testimony from a top FBI official that Hillary home-brew server emails were found in the White House. This means that Barrack Obama's illegal handling of classified information contained in those emails is closer to being exposed. This implicates him in the same felonies committed by Hillary Clinton that James Comey falsely claimed "no reasonable prosecutor" would pursue. Proof is also piling up that White House operatives exploited the NSA's surveillance of all electronic communications in the United States to monitor political opponents.

Another Lawless Democrat Attack On Trump Fails - Temporarily

A federal appeals court  ruled President Trump’s tax returns, which he has refused to make public, can’t be obtained by a non-profit organization using the Freedom of Information Act. However, Democrats have said they’d use special powers enjoyed by the leaders of congressional tax committees to get the documents.

Democrats Being Themselves

Conservatives wondering what the future holds for the upcoming 116th Congress should wonder no more and simply take Democrats at their word as to their plans. This means a very full agenda of harassing President Trump, pursuing conspiracy theories, raising taxes and restricting your freedom.

Breaking: Democratic Activist FBI Director Under Three Investigations

With three investigations hanging over his head and an obvious lie now made public it’s time for Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to go. If he won’t retire once his successor, Christopher Wray, is confirmed, then Wray’s first act should be to fire him.

Witch Hunt: The Getting of the President

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

Let’s cut to the chase. This isn’t an investigation. It’s the Washington Swamp going on offense. It’s one thing to build political myths to soothe a losing candidate and her supporters. It’s quite another to successfully get a “special prosecutor” to investigate a crime that never happened — and stock the prosecutors staff with partisan lawyers who contributed to her campaigns or even, in one case, actually worked for the Clinton Foundation.

Conservatives Demand Action Against Foreign-Funded Anti-Trump Violence

A group of conservative leaders is urging both houses of Congress to “establish and fund permanent standing committees to conduct hearings and investigations, take testimony, and issue reports on all foreign-funded influence operations inside the United States, and on organizations and movements and fraudulent tax-exempt foundations devoted to the overthrow of the Constitution of the United States.”

Could Focus on Scandals Backfire?

The GOP’s zeal could galvanize the Dem base to defend Obama despite the evidence gathered.
