Flynn Case: ‘The Public Interest’ vs. The Truth

The frame up and prosecution on false evidence of General Michael Flynn carries the same stench that many racist and political prosecutions of the past carry – the only difference is this time it is the radical Anti-Trump Resistance that finds it is in “the public interest” to railroad an innocent man they don’t like because his views threaten their power.

Bombshell From Ohio Star Adds To Info Suggesting Obama Was Out To Get Mike Flynn

Neil W. McCabe’s Pulitzer Prize-worthy reporting for The Ohio Star demonstrates once again that #Obamagate is real and adds another element of proof to our contention that Obama was personally out to get Mike Flynn. It remains to be seen whether any of these names will resurface as part of the Barrr – Durham investigation, but one thing is clear – the list of Treasury officials who had no business looking at General Flynn’s financial data includes a number of high level Democrat political operators with close ties to former President Obama.

Mike Flynn Persecution Continues As The Judge Becomes The Prosecutor

Judge Sullivan’s inexplicable hostility to General Mike Flynn continues to prolong the case against him, even though Flynn's attorney Sidney Powell and the government itself have produced reams of documents proving that General Flynn was the object of a concerted campaign of government misconduct and that it was not Flynn, but the FBI, that lied.

It Was Obama Who Targeted General Mike Flynn

Obama fired LTG Mike Flynn as head of the DIA in 2014, claiming insubordination, while Flynn asserted he was pushed out for his aggressive stance on combating lslamic extremism. Soon after Flynn was fired the targeting began. and when Flynn spoke to the Russian Ambassador about an Obama policy Flynn and Trump planned to undo – Obama’s sanctions on Russia -- it was, from Obama’s perspective, another intolerable act of insubordination by Mike Flynn.

Bombshell: Gen. Mike Flynn Exonerated DOJ Drops Case

The United States Department of Justice on Thursday dropped the criminal case against President Trump’s first national security adviser, LTG Michael Flynn. The DOJ said it had concluded that Flynn’s interview by the FBI was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn” and that the interview was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.” and further that the FBI "sidestepped a modest but critical protection that constrains the investigative reach of law enforcement: the predication threshold for investigating American citizens.”

Bill Barr Derangement Syndrome

Rich Lowry, National Review

It’s no wonder that Trump's Attorney General William Barr has a poorly disguised contempt for his critics, many of whom are so inflamed by their opposition to Trump that they’ve lost any sense of standards. In a peppery speech to a Federalist Society conference last year that is now one of the counts against him, Barr rightly warned that “it is the Left that is engaged in a systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law.” At the end of the day, they really don’t want Trump to have an attorney general, but that’s not going to happen. If they force Barr out — or more likely, Trump’s continued tweeting pushes him over the edge — they’ll miss him when he’s gone.

Burn Down the DOJ and Start Over

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Let Barr do his thing. Let Durham do his. I’m not going to Lucy and the football myself into believing that either one is definitely going to serve up the justice upon the Deep State derps that is the minimal requirement for beginning to rebuild the trust in federal law enforcement these hacks flushed away, but who knows? They might do something. In the meantime, we simply need to treat federal law enforcement as what it is: deeply corrupt and utterly untrustworthy. The other thing is that the president needs to pardon Roger Stone, Mike Flynn, and the others caught up in the scummy attempt to criminalize dissent. And he should commute Paul Manafort’s sentence to time served.

Attorney General William Barr, ‘Adult of the Year’

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Few people in the country today have demonstrated deeper insight into Spygate, the investigation into those who have been investigating the elected president of the United States, than Kimberley Strassel. Is it possible that the investigation of the investigators could be brought to an end? Could the media render Attorney General Barr or prosecutor John Durham suspect? Will they uncover an incriminating telephone call? How long can the Democrat-controlled House mire these men in one of their investigations? Is it possible that the whole finely tuned investigation overseen by the attorney general will come to a grinding halt because of Democratic subterfuge? Not likely, but possible.

William Barr Is Justified in Calling out George Soros

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Sure, there are bad cops—from the precinct level to, we now learn, the executive offices of the FBI. And they should be rooted out and punished to the full extent of the law. But the average cop is not that way. He or she is a working-class person devoting his or her life at mediocre pay to keep their community safe, often at great risk to themselves. To oppose them is to be in essence reactionary while telling yourself in some self-congratulatory manner that you are progressive. Sometimes, in honest moments, we asked ourselves what we’d do if we were being robbed or attacked? “Call a hippie!” we exclaimed in unison. We all knew that was a joke. The same joke still applies.

William Barr's right about left's designs on religious freedom

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

The infidels and infantiles who are running higher education today must be confronted with more than just laughter and dismissal. They are, after all, the ones destroying America by poisoning the minds of children. It is also why so many boars in the media took such offense to the speech and began squealing like a herd of mad swine racing for the lake. It leads political monsters to create untamable leviathans like Obamacare, which forces the Little Sisters of the Poor to violate their most precious religious convictions. Is it any surprise, then, to see citizens turn on one another with the same evil lust?

William Barr determined to unravel truth behind Russia lie

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Barr must charge ahead. He knows the personal smears already thrown at him are just the start, but he told CBS reporter Jan Crawford he feels a sense of duty because, at 69, “it really doesn’t make any ­difference.” “I realize we live in a crazy ­hyperpartisan period of time and I knew that it would only be a matter of time if I was behaving responsibly and calling them as I see them, that I would be attacked because nowadays people don’t care about the merits and the substance,” he said. “They only care about who it helps, who benefits, whether my side benefits or the other side benefits, everything is gauged by politics.”

Exploiting the MSM: Barr Uses CBS to Speak to America

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

William Barr's interview Thursday (transcript here) with Jan Crawford is filled with fascinating details and surprisingly candid responses, but most interesting of all may be that he undertook this dialogue not with friendlies at Fox or the Wall Street Journal but with  CBS — the very beating heart of the mainstream media from well before the days of the Dan Rather embarrassment. The network is the sine qua non of Deep State establishmentarianism. You would think they would crucify him, but Barr is fearless — and justifiably so. He knows he is telling the truth and that, as the saying goes, will set you free.

Robert Mueller and the Art of Innuendo

David Catron, The American Spectator

Inevitably, upon his examination of the Mueller report, Attorney General Barr found nothing that warranted an obstruction case against the President. And then-Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, who originally authorized the investigation, concurred. As to Mueller himself, the best news to come out of Wednesday’s presser is that he’s resigning. He spent our money, wasted our time, and proved as partisan as Trump insisted. He has mastered the art of innuendo, however, so he may have a future on cable insinuating that the President was involved in the JFK assassination or kidnapping the Lindbergh baby.

Anti-Trump Republican Congressman Justin Amash Earns A Primary Opponent

Rep. Amash and his family have been sketchy, if not downright deceptive about their business in Red China. Now, in the middle of President Trump's effort to protect American jobs and national security against Red Chinese attacks Amash suddenly thinks Trump should be impeached. Click here to learn more about Amash's opponent Michigan state Representative Jim Lower.

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.

Trump To Address Most Important Immigration Issue

We believe President Trump’s willingness to take on the assimilation issue comes from his own deep sense of patriotism and love of country, and his own family’s immigrant story. We are 100 percent in favor of a strong and effective assimilation program being included in any immigration reform plan put forth by the President.

The Turtle Wants To Move On… To What?

Conservatives applaud Majority Leader McConnell’s words of support for President Trump and for his demand that Democrats end the obstruction and publicly funded conspiracy theory propagation. The problem we see is that McConnell has not specified what action he plans to take to move the Trump agenda forward.

The Big Lie That Barr Lied

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Democrats are unnerved. Attorney General Barr is pursuing an inquiry into the Obama administration’s decision to conduct a foreign counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign. The time is now, they figure, to reprise the Ken Starr treatment: the ad hominem withering of an accomplished, highly capable official — in this instance, one who is daring to press questions that would have been answered two years ago if an incumbent Republican administration had spied on — er, monitored — a Democratic presidential campaign.

When the third time is not the charm

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The only “high crime and misdemeanor” left to imagine is that the attorney general “lied to Congress.” Without a shred of reliable evidence, that’s the thinnest fantasy of all. The third time is definitely not the charm. So what’s next? Is there a scandal about pilfered bedpans at the Department of Health and Human Services? Did the attorney general indulge a needed burp and forget to beg Jerrold Nadler’s pardon? What the Democrats need, in addition to a good 5-cent cigar, is a scandal with lasting power. President Trump and his side must remember that when your enemy is trying to destroy himself, the only smart thing to do is get out of his way and give him room. The crazies will do the rest.

Dem attacks on Barr come down to three-week gap

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The Mueller protest seemed more about feelings and intangibles than the bottom-line conclusions Barr had listed. And how, precisely, would a four-page letter "fully capture the context, nature, and substance" of a 448-page report? But that was the basis of the Democratic attack on Barr. (And if you do not believe it was an attack on Barr, just look at the questioning of Sen. Mazie Hirono.) Democrats are angry at the president for everything, they're angry at the attorney general for covering for the president, and they are angry at Mueller for not giving them the full-throated indictment of the president that they wanted. And that has nothing to do with a three-week gap.
