Durham Dreams Destroyed

Durham Dreams Destroyed

Reports indicate prosecutor John Durham will not issue a report or hand down indictments in the corrupt attempt to disrupt Trump’s 2016 campaign and transition until after the 2020 election. That’s too late, it’s relevant to voters now. It’s now or never. And it appears never.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53z6uZxffjA

On September 12, 2020, in a moment of wishful thinking, I wrote, Aggressive Attempts To Discredit Durham Investigation May Reflect Something Big Is Coming Down.

It was wishful thinking, but not completely delusional. I knew the risks of wishcasting:

I haven’t had much hope for the investigation being conducted by prosecutor John Durham. Not because of anything particular to the Durham investigation, but we’ve been disappointed too many times before.

The guilty plea of an ex-FBI lawyer for falsifying a FISA document created the possibility that he was cooperating, and that there would be more to come. But still, after that plea:

The usual suspects are declaring the Durham investigation illegitimate and a nothingburger.

I’ve been so dissapointed with Republican-led investigations that I’m not hoping for much more.

But let me be very clear what I want to see: James Comey frog-marched in an orange jumpsuit, legs shackled and hands bound at his waste, leading a chain gang of Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Samantha Powers, and John Does Nos. 1-13, into the federal courthouse, with the unsealing of an indictment naming mysterious persons “Renegade” and “Celtic” as unindicted co-conspirators.

You can’t take away my dreams.

So what’s going on? Who is whispering in the Hartford Courant’s ear?

Someone or people who know something big is coming down, and want to discredit it in advance.

You can’t take away my dreams.

Actually, you can take away my dreams, Barr tells Republicans Durham report won’t be ready by election:

Attorney General Bill Barr has begun telling top Republicans that the Justice Department’s sweeping review into the origins of the Russia investigation will not be released before the election, a senior White House official and a congressional aide briefed on the conversations tell Axios.

Why it matters: Republicans had long hoped the report, led by U.S. Attorney John Durham, would be a bombshell containing revelations about what they allege were serious abuses by the Obama administration and intelligence community probing for connections between President Trump and Russia.

  • “This is the nightmare scenario. Essentially, the year and a half of arguably the number one issue for the Republican base is virtually meaningless if this doesn’t happen before the election,” a GOP congressional aide told Axios.
  • Barr has made clear that they should not expect any further indictments or a comprehensive report before Nov. 3, our sources say.
  • Politico first reported that Durham is not expected to release information related to the probe before Election Day and Senate Republicans running similar investigations were made aware within the last week.
  • The Justice Department declined to comment. The White House did not respond to a request for comment.

What we’re hearing: Barr is communicating that Durham is taking his investigation extremely seriously and is focused on winning prosecutions.

It was now or never. Now it’s never. The deep corruption of the attempt to undermine Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and transition is important NOW. It’s a factor in the 2020 election. Convictions later are too late. Prosecution if Biden wins is over.

No one should be prosecuted for political purposes, but if the roles were reversed, you better believe Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch would have buttoned-up a case prior to the election. This is why we lose.

I’ve been calling out Barr for a long time.
Sadly, I was right.

If PDJT wins, Barr has got to go – asap.

    Be terrible if that report got hacked or leaked tonight.

    Besides we can easily construct all that is in it.

      Durham, unlike the OIG, was detailed to prosecute cases, not to write a report. Any report Durham writes prior to court cases will hurt his prosecutions.

        maxmillion in reply to stablesort. | October 9, 2020 at 11:53 pm

        That sounds right. Emphasis on the word “sounds,” mainly because it fits exactly with Barr: He ALWAYS talks a very good game and SOUNDS spot-on. But he slow-walks everything, and results aren’t produced. I hope you’re right, but he’s looking more and more like a trojan horse swamp creature extraordinaire.

        So start issuing INDICTMENTS and ARRESTING people. That would be even better than a report. We already know most of the most important facts and have for two years or more.

        Never underestimate the GOP’s talent for screwing things up. I am still not holding my breath on the Barrett confirmation either. Republicans marching the ball down field to the goal line always seems to end with the Democrats scoring a touchdown and with the Republicans blocking for them. Why is this any different?

        So after years of being maligned for voting 3rd party, do you maligners still believe I was throwing my vote away? Trump proved to be the 3rd party president I was waiting for and having to watch the GOP helping the Democrats obstructing him every step of the way, in 24 days, I will again re-register as an unaffiliated independent. Hopefully, Trump will clean house and start putting the massive bureaucracy to the knife in his 2nd term and give me a reason to vote GOP in 2024.

          JusticeDelivered in reply to Pasadena Phil. | October 10, 2020 at 9:00 am

          For many years prior to the election I had been arguing that we needed to elect independents, and leave both Republicans and Democrats on the sidelines. My reasoning was that their being benched would straighten them out.

          When Trump came along, he was saying the right things, I could not stand Hillary, so I saw Trump as worth a try.

          I expected Democrats to shift to center and RINOs to be forced to do the same.

          During the time I was working in the beltway, there was a new wave of Republican’s being elected who were often small business owners, and frequently religious. Since I am also a small business owner, I got along well with them. And since it is common for small business owners to be abused by big business, we shared a general dislike for and skepticism about their motives, and the RINO’s. RINO’s were able control those freshman Republicans before Trump.

          For the most part, Republicans reacted to Trump in the manner I expected, Democrats did not.

          It is amazing how Democrats went beyond left, to Marxists. Today, they seem more like rabid animals than humans.

          Trump lost LA County by 2 million votes, and he’ll lose it again by around the same margin. Meanwhile, IIRC, the Dems fominate the congressional delegation and every office in the county and state, and you’re the one who bemoaned the lack of Republican candidates. I think your vote is totally irrelevant.

        empiricallyobvious in reply to stablesort. | October 10, 2020 at 1:03 pm

        Sadly, waiting until after the election is futile. If Trump loses there will be NO prosecutions of these offenders. There will be a new and unbreakable unholy alliance between Dems, Swamp creatures in the embedded (and liberal/preogressive) federal bureaucracy and self serving Never Trumpers.
        America will never be the same. Without exposure of these crimes/dirty tricks BEFORE the election there is little hope.
        Watch as Slow Joe has power usurped and Sanders and his acolytes control the levers of power. Think I’m wrong? Merely look at the people running the presumptive Biden transition team.
        If Durham’s report is not released it will signal the death rattle of our republic as we know it and he will go down with John Robert’s as history’s greatest failures.

        MattMusson in reply to stablesort. | October 10, 2020 at 2:08 pm

        This was not just a few underlings. Hundreds of people broke the laws misusing the About queries. Perhaps 50-75 abused the Unmasking laws. Dozens in the FBI and DOJ participated lying to the FISA court.

        I think Barr and Dunham are trying to figure out how many to actually charge and how many will be un-indichted co-conspirators. And how much to release on Hillary’s, Joe’s and Barack’s direct involvement.

      all they would get is 100 blank pages!

    Ironically, I think Trump is responsible for the lack of indictments. He appointed Chris Christie to head his first Transition team and IMO would have picked him for AG. CC, in addition to being a smart politician, NJ governor and friend of Trump, was a good Federal prosecutor and would have made a great AG, a job he wanted. Trump would have avoided most of his serious issues, with no Sessions, Rosenstein, Mueller, Barr, or impeachment; and CC would have gone after lawbreakers. Unfortunately, IMO Trump listened to Kushner, whose father CC put in prison, and CC got frozen out. If my view is correct, this may be by far Trump’s single biggest mistake.

      azide999 in reply to jb4. | October 10, 2020 at 12:47 am

      I wonder if it would have the intended impact if released right now? Trump supporters would be bolstered, some undecided would be swayed, but the Dems would ignore it – they ignore anything of truth from the GOP. I am not sure the release would have an impact on the election. It would only have an impact if it directly led to changes in Dem leadership via indictments or arrest. Perhaps going out on a limb, the greatest impact might well be after the election … no matter who wins, people will be paying attention to it when it materializes. Should Dems resist a win by GOP, release of the report will quench that. Alternatively, GOP can resist a win by Dems on publishing the report prior to inauguration and fielding an investigation of sorts.

        alohahola in reply to azide999. | October 10, 2020 at 8:08 am

        Completely agree.

        Should Trump win, he will be extra-legitimized and so any indictments will have more legitimacy.

        In other words, no one will be indicating to win; instead, they will be indicting out of full respect for the law.

    r.rodriguez96821 in reply to TheFineReport.com. | October 10, 2020 at 6:23 am

    I want to believe this is what’s going on. Follow me a minute. TRUMP WILL win reelection, the democrats WILL try to steal it. These two things are almost certain. Okay, when Trump declares victory, the democrats threaten to sue in court. Trump says, okay fine, but I’m still president for now. AG Barr and John Durham, you may unleash those indictments now. Lets see the full Durham report. Lets perp walk Brennan Clapper Comey McCabe and Stzrok. Lets start their trials for treason IMMEDIATELY. And by the way, anyone caught trying to change the election results for 2020, be careful here. You might be on trial for treason soon as well. Why waste indictments and perp walks before an election when Trump is certain to win the election anyway. Barr said not to expect the Durham report or any indictments BEFORE the election. He didn’t say not to expect these things at all. Is this a plausible theory? What do you think?

    Barry Soetoro in reply to TheFineReport.com. | October 12, 2020 at 7:58 am

    I suspect McConnell is the primary roadblock to justice here.

Charlie Brown will never kick the football, and the swamp will always protect its own.

Republicans also lose because they have insisted since March that America isn’t experiencing the second deadliest pandemic in history,and that the coal industry deserves $161 million in handouts but the peons deserve precisely dick.

    Go away, little person.

    Deadlier than both the 1918 flu and the Black Death?

    Deadly, yes. Deadliest, second, third, whatever, no. The excess deaths can be attributed to Planned Parent, denying and stigmatizing early treatment (e.g. HCQ cocktail), spreading social contagion to drive adversity and justify duress, and standing up for immigration reform.

    That said, the President is recovering from the pathogen. The cloned antibodies are one step ahead of conventional vaccines, and reduce their potential side-effects. The “disinfectant” cocktail reduces the viability of the virus in a Planned Pathogen protocol and complements the body’s immune system to relieve the “burden”.

    Peace in the Middle East. Confronting the trade, aggressive expansion, and human rights abuses of the Chinese Communist Party. Standing up to diversity. A judge soon to be Justice Barrett. Addressing progressive prices under Obamacare. A pathogen, one of many, past, present, and future, without safe sanctuary. Make America Great Again. Keep America Great. Pro-Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

Trump should fire Barr over the weekend.

It’d gain him a million more votes.

    Who in the (censored) would he get to replace Barr, and still do a better job? God forbid, we don’t need the mirror-image of Reno or Lynch or Holder. Barr has been doing the job without dragging politics into it. There’s no way a Trump AG could pull the kind of crap that Obama’s AGs did every day, because the press would hammer them 24/7.

The gun community had Barr pegged as a swampy long ago. Sad to say, we told you so.

    southtexas in reply to henrybowman. | October 10, 2020 at 7:23 am

    No doubt! Barr has been good at sticking up for Trump to a point, but his past is a problem. He was okay with sniper man killing a woman and child at Ruby Ridge. I’m always baffled how Trump hires these Swamp Scum to implement his policies.

      BierceAmbrose in reply to southtexas. | October 10, 2020 at 9:38 am

      In practice wrangling govt operations Trump is the opposite of his cult of personality autarch charicature. Think of federal orgs as subcontractors, not core of the business. He doesn’t demand of them loyalty, just results the customer, Trump, wants.

      Trump’s handling of odd performance, like the DoJ, tracks like dealing with an underperforming subcontractor. Trump did not have bureaucrats in waiting to provision the apparatus like Team Bush, or Team Clinton or now Team Whoever to be provisioned n puppeteered by the Obama-ites. With a suncontractor you both want what you want, and choose when n how to make a change to let the project succeed. You can see that thinking with Sessions at DoJ.

      Trump is both more, and less directive than other presidents. He expects subcontractors to deliver what he’s bought. Internally, they run themselves. If they insist on deciding what should be, they’re fired, and he has no patience with subcontracted services getting off the big project message. But the when n how of any change is what most helps the big project succeed.

      Really, in national direction Trump acts a lot like, well, developer n prime contractor on a big refurb project. He owns the vision. Sees what could be out of what’s there. Subcontracts out to do the granular work.

      Trump’s pitch is The US of Awesome theme park that you, meanimg we, can live in for real. He’s flexible n opportunistic about how to get any part of that done. That confounds the nomenklatura, grifters, n apparatcheks no end. Worse, he’s personally flamboyant about the wrong things – they just don’t like him inside the club.

      Is “stable genius” about the intelligence petsonality trait, bein a good talker (who’s always having to post-hoc “be clear”) or some adapted response in context? Depends on who you ask, n when, I think.

        Bierce, what are you talking about?

          BierceAmbrose in reply to JasonL. | October 11, 2020 at 12:06 am

          I’m responding, directly, to this from the comment I replied to:

          “I’m always baffled how Trump hires these Swamp Scum to implement his policies.”

          “Swamp Scum” is a wrong frame of analysis for what Trump does with his “hiring.” If you watch what he does, he doesn’t manage the department and agency heads like that. It tracks better to think of the White House operation as the prime contractor on a redevelopment program, with the federal departments n agencies treated as subcontractors.

          Look at it that way, the hires are way less baffling in the agencies and the White House operations.

“Barr is communicating that Durham is taking his investigation extremely seriously and is focused on winning prosecutions.”

That is as sincere as Cal Cunningham’s public prostrations about how he takes “full responsibility” for his pants-down campaign.

This is a hard pill for independents, Republicans, and conservatives to swallow, but the political gap between the Communist Party and the GOPe is tiny compared to the one between the GOPe and Republican voters. Has been for some time now. John McCain, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romneycare, Susan Murkowski, Susan Collins, and a host of other GOPe politicians are much closer to the Communists than their own voters.

You expected a government drone to prosecute other government drones BEFORE an epochal election? I have said since 2016, no one of importance will ever be prosecuted for the crimes committed in the Deep State’s attempted coup against Donald Trump. Durham is a typical Deep Stater…he won’t ever prosecute anyone of importance for the crimes committed in spying on a political campaign by a sitting government. SImply won’t ever happen. If Biden wins. He’ll be “fired” (he’ll get a VERY well enumerated job in a private firm for which he won’t actually be expected to do anything) and his “investigation” will be shut down. That’s a fact.

michaelharris99 | October 9, 2020 at 10:03 pm

It is sad that as evidence is redacted we learn of the horrible corruption of the Obama administration. But we are a nation of laws. Laws mean due process I trust Barr and Durham. Just to issue an Andy Weissmann type report or file charges to win an election is not consistent with the rule of law. Hopefully there will be a special prosecutor

    point of order: we are no longer a nation of laws.

    at the every least, we are a nation of two laws: one for little people, and one for the Swamp Creatures.

    and we are NOT going to vote our way out of this mess: they’ve made that *very* clear.

      redc1c4: Steve Deace: Top 5 Things We’ve Learned from Corona virus: 3/17/20.

      #1, Not important IMO.
      #2, ENORMOUS. Worth the price of admission.
      #3, Very big.
      #4 Huge. Why? $$$ to the swamp, IMO.
      #5, Big. Potential is HUGE to ENORMOUS. We can send the big blue cities into obsolescence at a much faster rate via working from home. Families in the suburbs are much more invested in their family units, homes, education for their children, communities, community infrastructure and law/order than people living in the dehumanizing hustle/bustle of crowded urban environments.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTR_B-c-WUE

      1. data limits, phones
      2. Republicans can actually defy court orders from judges (see the governor of Ohio) when they want to, they just don’t want to…
      3. Payroll taxes are bad for the American people…
      4. Illegal aliens, drug cartels, and human traffickers matter more than you…
      5. There’s much we leave our homes and families to do professionally that we really don’t have to.

      I posted the video here before, commented before, but almost 7 months on, I believe it bears repeating. Relationship with China is also mentioned (30:55), globalization versus localization.

      “We’re not a Nation of Law, and we never have been. We are a Nation of political will, and we always will be.” (36:24)

      (37:23) Bill Barr addressed here, interesting take (bushie).

      Bottom line? Political will versus Rule of Law.

      (40:00) “Who is actually accountable to the people, directly, the judges or the executives? The executives, that’s why they were given the power to execute, and not the judges. And if you don’t like the way they execute, guess what you get to do with an executive, vote them out of office. If you don’t like the way the judges opine, guess what you get to do? Well, not a damn thing! That’s why the power is in the hands of the executive, and not in the bloggers in black robes.”

      Worth watching the whole thing.

.
The report can wait; it’s INDICTMENTS that cannot wait.

But I get it: We will see neither before Election Day.

Why do I bother listening to Joe DiGenova?

Well, it seems John H. Durham has been prosecuting JP Morgan/Chase instead of the Russia Gate.

JP Morgan has just agreed to pay $920 million to resolve two fraud charges lodged by the DOJ: https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/jpmorgan-chase-co-agrees-pay-920-million-connection-schemes-defraud-precious-metals-and-us

Apparently, the DOJ believes JPMorgan’s fraud is much more important than Russia Gate.

At least they are consistently evil.

1. Biden brags about extorting Ukraine and it’s ok.

When Trump mentions Biden’s wrongdoing to Ukraine, it is deemed to be political–and criminally wrong.

2.Hillary and the FBI and CIA et al conspire to commit treason and steal an election.

But they can’t be prosecuted because going after criminals is considered political and it could affect an election.

That’s their version of the rule of law.

Subotai Bahadur | October 9, 2020 at 10:25 pm

Combine this, with the Speaker of the House inserting herself and partisan politics into the 25th Amendment, and the ability for either side to have any belief in the rule of law or the Constitution gets weaker and weaker. At some point, Hobbes’ state of nature replaces consensual government. And the organic waste impacts the rotating airfoil.

Subotai Bahadur

It is worth pondering the fact that people who are above the law are also *outside* the law.

And the Devil is starting to turn around … where will they hide?

The odds of DoJ prosecutions prior to the election were tiny at best. The Rona interrupting or more precisely being allowed to interrupt interviews, evidence gathering and grand jury operation sealed it.

I am fine with prosecution post election. Hopefully Barr, Durham and others are making sure all the rocks get turned over, all leads followed, every I dotted and t crossed. The damage done is not excusable. The loss of faith in our institutions can’t be restored without prosecution and conviction.

Placing hope in an October surprise isn’t a sound electoral strategy. Let’s face it, not very many folks now convinced that crimes were committed in generating and fostering the Russia collision myth are going to change their mind simply because no indictment is handed down before November 3rd.

Likewise no one now convinced of the ‘truth’ of the Russian collusion was likely to change their mind and vote for Trump.

Have a bit of faith in Barr. The man came back to DC taking over as AG knowing he would be pilloried. IMO, Barr is horrified at what went on. He knows that all of are watching to see if he acts to protect the Citizens or to protect the swamp. I believe he wants airtight cases and no reasonable claims made about political prosecution.

Should he and Durham fail to deliver then I will happily admit my error.

    Let’s compare. By this point in Watergate (3 years in) 16 big-shot Republican administration officials, including the attorney general himself, were already convicted and serving time in the big-house, and Nixon was driven from office in disgrace but with a pardon from Ford because they were going to lock him up too. Now that’s how you do it when you’re serious.

    alohahola in reply to CommoChief. | October 10, 2020 at 8:16 am

    I completely agree, CommoChief.

    “Have a bit of faith in Barr.” Sidney Powell asked as much in her speech back in March on “How to Fix Justice.”

Doing it fast will get it done half-assed, but doing it in the time it takes to do it right and chances are better that those eventually indicted will be counting sheep all night.

An Envisioned, Quite Possible Scenario

1) Trump wins, an electoral legal contest ensues. The date is December 8, and USA John Durham is handed down by recently adjourned federal grand juries numerous, substantial indictments.

2) Eventually, Trump is adjudicated the winner and reelected president of the United States — so decides the USSC in a 6-3 decision. The Senate remains in Republican hands while the House flips to Republican control. “Happy Days are Here Again” is the new Hannity theme song.

3) Chaos erupts in the streets, the national guards face the rioters, the country is on edge. Many are killed, businesses burn and suffer looting, and many, many are now arrested and held in special custody as President Trump invokes, at the insistent of several Congressional leaders, The Insurrection Act, applying its firm and required measures to successfully suppress a full-blown civil rebellion. Tens of thousands lose their liberty and special, mass-trial dates are set. The events are unprecedented.

4) The date is early January, and the Durham indictments stand. Defendants are arraigned, trial dates are set.

5) Trump is now sworn in on January 20. Barr has been happily re-appointed, among other Cabinet members, and has a new bounce in his step. The Super Bowl is played. Tom watches with his wife from one of the special guest boxes; the Bucs missed making the playoffs. It’s gonna be a long, cold winter, we learn on Groundhog Day.

6) America is surviving, and trying to recover.

7) a) The renewed and revitalized president invokes a Special Week of Rest and Reflection as the country tries to take stock of its 2020 experiences via numerous events held nationwide.

b) The president has never relapsed and his health is terrific; he has even lost 15 pounds since the election.

c) The suburban white soccer moms turned their collective cheek, the pollsters tell us, and came out in droves to help reelect him, and, perhaps as a result, he seems to have his old swagger back.

d) The First Lady is always smiling, even as The First Daughter, Ivanka, passes by her on the dais.

e) Times are much, much better, and we the people feel a sense of renewed and restored hope.

f) The wheels of justice are turning, many hear and feel; and so, many more believe God is still with us.

Where do I probably fault?

    Possible? Yes. Likely? Probably not. What will distinguish this election from previous ones will be the Communist voting fraud, which will dwarf anything we have ever seen before, and make tinpot dictators in Third World hellholes green with envy.

    In Texas a Communist Federal appointed by Obama judge has just issued an injunction overruling state law:

    http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3892335/posts

    So now Communists can put a drop box for ballots on every street corner if they want. To make things worse: one Harris County Communist campaign official bragged that he had arranged to “harvest” 700,000 mail-in ballots for Communists in that county alone.

    https://tennesseestar.com/2020/09/30/bidens-texas-political-director-implicated-in-massive-mail-in-ballot-harvesting-scheme-in-harris-county/

    And now a Federal judge has given this banana republic crap the green light.

      Well, in an honest world, the election currently underway would be halted and all votes still on the loose would be discarded.

      Then, the election would resume on 3 November and only those ballots cast by in-person voters witnessed by poll watchers would be validated and counted.

      This whole idea of millions of ballots thrown off a mountain top returned in bundles (harvested) completely unverified is simply the political class assuming full control of the election process, rendering citizen votes meaningless.

      Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Recovering Lutheran. | October 10, 2020 at 11:25 am

      Fine. The court can make any decision they want. But they can’t enforce the decisions. They simply depend on the people to abide by the decision. Texas should just go ahead with their election plans and let the court howl in rage. They can’t do a fucking thing.

      And anyway, just tell the federal court that made the decision that they are not allowed to legislate from the bench. Election matters are governed be each state legislature. Not the court. And if they don’t like it well, take them to court. And then delay, delay, and delay until after the election and it’s a moot point.

      With numbers like 700K harvested ballots from just one Harris Cty TX commissioner, I just do not understand how there are so many people here with confidence that Trump will win handily.

        txvet2 in reply to jb4. | October 10, 2020 at 3:48 pm

        One reason is that Harris Cty wasn’t going to support Trump anyway, so most of those votes were already accounted for. In the second place thousands of invalid votes are thrown out every election, and it’s unlikely those votes would have survived. Trump should still carry the state by a few hundred thousand votes. You’d better hope he does, because if they steal Texas, the game is over.

          The vote for President is state wide, not county by county. Any excess fraudulent votes in Harris County can and will count against Trump.

          txvet2 in reply to txvet2. | October 10, 2020 at 5:05 pm

          Obviously. My point is that most of the invalid votes will be disallowed, EVEN IN HARRIS COUNTY. This isn’t Philadelphia, after all.

      This is still in flux, and that order likely won’t stand for the same reason other such rulings were overturned. As far as the illegal “harvesting” operations are concerned, the fact that the scheme is already well known to state law enforcement and election officials is a pretty good sign that most of these ballots won’t be counted.

    I like this vision. But.. Man Plans; God laughs

No need for indictments prior to the election if the Trump internal polls show a big win November 3 (they do). No need to fire up the democrats, prodding them to coalesce around the rallying cry of “Political persecution!” Better to have the Whiteh House, House, Senate, and a full SCOTUS with ACB seated, then drop the hammer on the spygate crowd. The democrats can howl from the wilderness all they want at that point, sound and fury signifying nothing.

    It is likely that they will riot and start burning down the suburbs and residents will have to put a stop to that.

      Catch 22. Residents can only stop the rioters in jurisdictions where they won’t be arrested for doing so, which are precisely the jurisdictions where there isn’t any rioting.

If only Woodward-and-Bernstein were alive today.

Just fire them all, this is so disappointing.

Well, that’s one avenue, now. Perhaps in President Trump’s second term.

So, the President is recovering from the pathogen. The cloned antibodies are one step ahead of conventional vaccines, and reduce their potential side-effects. The “disinfectant” cocktail reduces the viability of the virus in a Planned Pathogen protocol and complements the body’s immune system to relieve the “burden”.

Peace in the Middle East. Confronting the trade, aggressive expansion, and human rights abuses of the Chinese Communist Party. Standing up to diversity. A judge soon to be Justice Barrett. Addressing progressive prices under Obamacare. A pathogen, one of many, past, present, and future, without safe sanctuary. Make America Great Again. Keep America Great. Pro-Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

Of course disappointed but wasn’t unexpected.
Until 1 person is indicted I don’t believe any will be for this coup, and we are doomed to see it repeated. They know they are free to do it again.

“This is why we lose”

Yup

I’m going to trust Sidney Powell on Barr.

Also, maybe it’s not the right time to indict or report, if ever.

Trump is on a roll right now. He’s even dropped ads from Iowa and Ohio because he doesn’t need them.

He has momentum. He’s moving forward.

Why mess with that?

Don’t ask to pull the campaign into the swamp. Move forward.

    txvet2 in reply to alohahola. | October 10, 2020 at 3:30 pm

    Sundance apparently thinks that Barr has been using Powell as a conduit to release information to the public that would otherwise be waiting on a Durham report.

So what do we hear on the Epstein cases, these days?

I can’t figure out why the President doesn’t demand some of the incriminating evidence be sent to him, unredacted, and then just release it to the press. Durham and Barr will have a ton of excuses why this can’t be done. He’s already demanded things be unredacted and they just flaunted that order. Time for some heads to roll.

have been voting since the early seventies and cannot recall a more bizarre election year(even the nixon nonsense was concluded with less theatre)–barr’s/durham’s apparent inaction is disappointing to be sure but as someone said earlier, whether releasing a report would actually change the minds/votes of the electorate is conjecture–the dem’s blatant fraud is readily apparent from what has been released already

better to stay focused on the most important issues:

confirm barrett, re-elect PDJT, keep the senate, retake the house and prepare to deal with the dem’s election fraud which, from all indications, will be of historic proportions/deceit

michaelharris99 | October 10, 2020 at 10:13 am

Readers should read Andy McCarthy’s article on Barr.He is a former federal prosecutor, and a strong supporter of the President. But the rule of law must prevail. The Democrats want to create a 1 party state and will. Dictatorship. Once that happens, there is no law, only the dictate of the authoritarian. 51 votes in the Senate matter. https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/10/no-durham-report-or-indictments-before-election-day/

If you didn’t see this coming for at least a year (if not, for longer) then you’re a gullible rube.

Lucifer Morningstar | October 10, 2020 at 11:09 am

First, we were told to wait for the Mueller investigation. Then the Horowitz report. Then the Mueller report. Then the Mueller hearings. Then the 2nd Horowitz report. Then for the Durham investigation. Then the Durham report.

And it’s all turned out to be one big fucking nothing burger. Just as I thought it would be. Might as well just admit that the democrats currently in power are absolutely untouchable. And will remain untouchable for the foreseeable future.

I really tried, for Trump’s sake and ours, to believe in Barr/Durham. What the dems did was an assault on the presidency for political reasons. What Barr/Durham are doing is a legit prosecution of those partisans. They are hiding behind grand jury, targets are lawyering up etc… but if they have enough evidence to make initial charges, doesn’t that allow them forcible subpoenas to go after the rest of the evidence? Republican bureaucrats play patty cake while dems play nuclear decimation.

I’m as disappointed as anyone that there won’t be any more indictments before the election, if ever – but this wailing and moaning over a worthless “report” is a waste of time. We know what has to be done – re-elect Trump so the the investigation can continue and hopefully eventually yield some indictments and convictions. And somebody really should have noticed that Barr keeps dumping more responsibilities and extending the scope of Durham’s probe every time some more evidence is pried out of the FBI, CIA, et al, which likely has had as much impact as anything else on the delaying of any definitive action.

I expect to be downvoted ferociously for saying this, but Trump screwed this up from the start. The Dems are evil. They have been evil for most of the history of this republic. Therefore, Trump should have purged Dems from the EOP (Executive Office of the President). He should have then purged anyone who had an association with a Shrub. This would have put the fear of God into those who remained. The purpose of the EOC is solely to aid the president.

Then, the moment that Trump won he should have fired Sessions for recusing himself. He should *not* have bad-mouthed Sessions on Twitter. But then he should have replaced Sessions with a strongly pro-Trump supporter. The DOJ is part of the Executive. The Executive is solely an instrumentality of the President. Dems have always understood this; Trump should have, too. If Trump didn’t fire Sessions immediately, he certainly should have done so when Rosenschlonger appointed Mule-er.

But oh no, 3-D chess I was told. As if the lessons of Machiavelli could be pushed aside by some scribbler. That Democratic effort at coup d’etat festered for much of Trump’s presidency and causes him needless grief, just as Machiavelli would predict. The Dems, being evil, would do the worst they could do no matter what.

He should also have built the wall with Mexican funds and catapulted some Dreamers over it. Then he might have kept the House. But no, 3-D chess! The courts! Etc.

Trump is treated as badly as he is because he has avoided “warp-speed” and necessary political slaughter. He allows pissant courts to control his presidency rather than putting them in their place via separation of powers. Luckily, he really is a talented tactician despite being a lousy strategist. His instincts on the economy have been right on. While he will ultimately be found wrong to have treated WuFlu like the Black Death, he could not have known this immediately. Given this error, his tactics have again been impressive. The idea that alleged rapist and known racist and dummy Biden could have done better couldn’t be more absurd.

    txvet2 in reply to JasonL. | October 10, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    I agree with a lot of what you say, especially about Trump’s curious reluctance to fire people – but in his defense, it should have been obvious from the first that the big drawback with electing an outsider is the fact that he IS an outsider, and doesn’t know enough qualified people to fill a cabinet and executive staff. That left him vulnerable to the recommendations of people who didn’t necessarily agree with his agenda. Sessions was without doubt his own fault, though.

    jb4 in reply to JasonL. | October 10, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    I basically agree with you. His personnel management has been poor. Note my remark yesterday, that not having Chris Christie as AG from the start was his single biggest error (of commission).

    In the private sector, everyone can have their own personal agendas. However, virtually everyone is still interested in the success of the enterprise. Running a family-owned business seems not to have prepared Trump well for the Deep State.

As Jack Nicholson said, “This town (DC) needs an enema!”

What is the downside of an informed citizenry? Is it not true that an informed electorate can make better decisions?
Here’s How President Trump Can Declassify Documents Around the “Authorization Process”…
Posted on October 11, 2020 by sundance

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/10/11/heres-how-president-trump-can-declassify-documents-around-the-authorization-process/
At the conclusion of the briefing; and after hearing from, and engagement with, each of the participating members of the executive intelligence offices and duly authorized legislative oversight representatives; and after listening to their opinion as to the subject material discussed; the president announces to the fully assembled leadership of both the Executive branch (cabinet) and Legislative branch (Go8), it is his opinion the National Interests of the United States can best be served with the American people having a full, transparent and honest review of the material assembled and discussed.
The President, no-one else, only the President, then collects the printed portfolios as they were distributed to the participants, exits the briefing, and walks directly into the James Brady press briefing room within the White House; handing each of the awaiting twelve members of the national media a copy of the briefing material to be published on behalf of the American people.
At exactly the same time as President Trump enters the briefing room, one copy of the assembled portfolio is hand delivered, by President Trump only, to White House communications director Alyssa Farah with instructions to scan and release the content to the public through the White House website.
Done.
The American people are aware…
The Election is forthcoming…
Litigation begins.

Read my lips: No indictments or anyone, ever, regardless of this latest “report”.
