AG Barr: Left is Shredding Norms and Undermining the Rule of Law

As he did at the University of Norte Dame several weeks ago, Attorney General William Barr delivered yet another historic speech yesterday at the 19th Annual Barbara K. Olsen Memorial Lecture at the Federalist Society’s 2019 National Lawyers Convention. In it, he makes clear a number of critical truths regarding our Republic, the Presidency, our nation’s domestic enemy the political left, and the intentional damage the left is doing to our Republic. Have a taste….

“Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called “The Resistance,” and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of his Administration.  Now, “resistance” is the language used to describe insurgency against rule imposed by an occupying military power.  It obviously connotes that the government is not legitimate.  This is a very dangerous – indeed incendiary – notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic.  What it means is that, instead of viewing themselves as the “loyal opposition,” as opposing parties have done in the past, they essentially see themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government.  

The fact of the matter is that, in waging a scorched earth, no-holds-barred war of “Resistance” against this Administration, it is the Left that is engaged in the systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law.“

While it is a lengthy speech, it’s importance cannot be overstated. I urge everyone to listen and/or read the speech.

  1. Thank you for making a thread for this speech here, FG&C.

    I read it earlier, and you are correct, everyone should hear/read it.

    This man is bringing the pain for the conspirators against the Presidency, take it to the bank.

        1. Ezra Cohen-Watnick, a General Flynn protegee, was Senior Director for Intelligence Programs for the United States National Security Council (NSC). He is supposedly the one who showed Devin Nunes the info. “that really shook him.”

          He and another General Flynn protegee, retired US Army Colonel Derek Harvey, were fired by McMasters. Ezra Cohen-Watnick ended up as the national security adviser to United States Attorney General. Derek Harvey ended up on Devin Nunes staff. Derek, was NSC Mideast Chief before being ousted by McMasters.

          OHHhhhhh,
          In looking up the full name of Derek, Salon and the DailyBeast are reporting it was Derek Harvey,

      1. My suspicion is that Barr has “the goods” to criminally indict about 35 current Senators and 100 current Reps. If he tries to negotiate a graceful way through, he becomes complicit. If he indicts, there’s 35 guaranteed votes in the Senate to impeach VSGPOTUSDJT and anyone else who would maintain Barr’s employment (not that he’s worried about it from an employment standpoint — but it wouldn’t sit well if he were stifled). If he indicts one, the rest may stampede. But it would be so wrong (and complicit) if he let them all go free after seeing the depth of the corruption. Sessions had this information as well, and the massive GOP retirements prior to 2018 was from him telling people to start running the statute of limitations.

        He also has enough to blow up the NSA (20%), CIA (80%), FBI (70%), State (80%), a chunk of the Military (20% — mostly stationed in DC or of high rank), and a large part of the holdover DoJ (80%). He has to “tag” enough of each to make it unthinkable for anything like the present coup to be repeated, but not enough to hollow-out the useful parts of each service.

        Q recently dropped [3600]:
        “For those who decide to save the taxpayers some money.

        I take the Notre Dame speech and this Olsen speech as Barr steeling himself to what must be done:
        “We fail?
        But screw your courage to the sticking place,
        And we’ll not fail.”

        He’s doing it publicly to gauge the reaction when the hammer falls, because it’s ready.

        The question is……..is he?

  2. On Andy and Epstein. Getting desperate. Realising you are in serious jeopardy even though you are a prince.?
    Prince Andrew claimed that he could not have had sex with a teenage girl in the London home of British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell because he was at home after attending a children’s party at Pizza Express in Woking. An anon on 4Chan noted, “Pizza Express in Woking” is an anagram for “Exposes Pizza Ring, (Wink).” Maybe, but the whole pizza party for children thing feels like a coded message. What Royal is attending children’s pizza parties? That feels like a threat to expose children pizzas.

      I don’t buy the pizza parlor stuff. It’s just TOO STRANGE. And I also don’t think he came up with that.

      I think the international – naaaah – the GLOBAL deep state is using people like bots now, very openly. They are betraying capabilities to alter human memory and behavior. Two-Door Ford was likely a highly reliable test subject, scripted right in to attack Kavanaugh. Prince has been partially erased and partially implanted. Loretta Lynch, erasure.

      I think Epstein compromised the Prince through a long program which used Ghislaine to drag him into the party world, and from there into the “young stuff” world. At some point I think he was botted with drugged hypnosis – probably on the island. After that, all kinds of compromise.

      It’s a mess. Absolute mess.

      And the TAPES of it are going to be declared “deep fakes” quietly by Goog as a way to keep them from spreading. Oh, this is all making sense now.

        What about the Johnny Carson video from 1984?

        Apparently prince Andy was already so well known for his appetite for young girls that Carson was comfortable making jokes about it on national television. Which means Andy was doing this stuff well before 1984, meaning Epstein would have to have been even younger than 30.

        If I remember correctly Epstein was 66 when he didn’t kill himself.

        1984 was nearly 36 years ago, which means Epstein would only have been 30 at the time. Was he already running the blackmail / honeypot scheme that long ago?

        And 36 years ago, Ghislaine Maxwell was only 21… at least, if her C_A / Wiki profile is correct.

        Here is Epstein’s timeline according to Wiki. Incredibly, he was hired by AG Barr’s father (at what point does it become mathematically impossible?):

        ……………………….
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeffrey_Epstein

        “Epstein started working in September 1974 as a physics and mathematics teacher for teens at the Dalton School on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. He was hired by Donald Barr[28][29] (father of U.S. Attorney General William Barr), who was the headmaster until June 1974

        [note: Epstein was born in 1953, so in 1974 he was 21]

        Epstein joined Bear Stearns in 1976 as a low-level junior assistant to a floor trader. He swiftly moved up to become an options trader, working in the special products division, and then advised the bank’s wealthiest clients, such as Seagram president Edgar Bronfman, on tax mitigation strategies. Jimmy Cayne, the bank’s later chief executive officer, praised Epstein’s skill with wealthy clients and complex products. In 1980, four years after joining Bear Stearns, Epstein became a limited partner.

        [note: in 1976 Epstein was 23, in 1980 he was 27]

        In August 1981, Epstein founded his own consulting firm, Intercontinental Assets Group Inc. (IAG),[39] which assisted clients in recovering stolen money from fraudulent brokers and lawyers.”
        ……………………….

        So I guess it could have started right then, at age 28, using the consulting firm as a cover, which would allow for 3 years for him to get involved with prince Andy, before Johnny Carson’s made his comments on The Tonight Show.

        1. OK – WAIT a minute. That timing is too tight for my tastes. Epstein was too young to pull off a complex plot against a royal, IMO. Sorry – not buying that. BUT…..

          This is interesting, because it may actually be focusing on a TRANSITION. And THAT transition explains why Steve Pieczenik thinks that Epstein was a Mossad operation BEFORE it was also a CIA operation.

          If Robert Maxwell (known Mossad asset) was already running a British-based compromise operation in the 70’s, then it could have already been dirtying up the British royals by the time that Epstein was added on as an American expansion of the operation.

          And then WHO would have had motive to KILL Robert Maxwell? Elements of the British government, perhaps? And if Epstein was in contact with the Bronfmans, then he was getting close to Mossad’s attention.

          1. I like Steve Pieczenik’s videos, I usually check for new ones every few days and watch however many I’ve missed all in a row.

            But I can’t trust or believe anything he says, lol!

            One moment he is praising GHWB (around the time of the funeral), and a couple videos later he’s saying GHWB was awful.

            He’s constantly contradicting things that he has said previously, and it’s especially noticeable if (for example) you watch 5 or more of his videos in a row.

            Then he admits that he’s part of a counter-coup team, and that he has been involved in a huge counter-intel / disinformation operation.

            I half expect someone off camera to say “Well Johnny, what can you make of this?”, and Johnny replies with “Well I can make a hat, or I can make a broach, or a pterodactyl, or…” 😁

          2. There’s other sources that claim Epstein’s operation is also mob related, which could go C_A or Mossad. Supposedly, his mentor Les Wexner (who denied all of it in the Wall Street Journal, for Heaven’s sake, only NYT or Washington Compost would be more suspicious) supposedly was a protoge of Meyer Lansky. If that pans out, then the blackmail operations have been going on for so long they probably were absorbed into the intelligence community. I mean, it’s all sophisticated enough it didn’t just happen over night.

  3. Trump undergoes exam at Walter Reed. Notice, it was not scheduled, he just showed up. Cabal is throughout the medical establishment, so you can’t let them get a game plan together. You show up, and before they know what is going on you are done and out the door. A contributor at The Hill tried to claim he was complaining of chest pain, but the consensus is that if he had they would never have released him immediately, and he was tweeting as per normal immediately after it. Fake News never stops.

Walter Reed is an additional 20 to 30 minutes farther from the White House, even with Secret Service stopping traffic. No way they would spend that extra time in transit if PDJT were in distress.”

        February 7, 2012 U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Egyptians: Look To the Constitutions of South Africa or Canada, Not To the U.S. Constitution, As a Model

        If you watch that Glen Beck documentary and then read RGB’s words above it is very chilling…

        ….”I can’t speak about what the Egyptian experience should be, because I’m operating under a rather old constitution. The United States, in comparison to Egypt, is a very new nation, and yet we have the oldest written constitution still in force in the world….

        “You should certainly be aided by all the constitution-writing that has gone one since the end of World War II. I would not look to the U.S. constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012….

        I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, had an independent judiciary… It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done. Much more recent than the U.S. constitution – Canada has a Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It dates from 1982. You would almost certainly look at the European Convention on Human Rights. Yes, why not take advantage of what there is elsewhere in the world?….

  8. Bill Barr is focused and I see him like a Honey Badger underneath that soft spoken demeanor. He just keeps on his path to defend the rule of law. Little wonder the left is freaking out.
    I like this part spoken by Barr,
    “One of the ironies of today is that those who oppose this President constantly accuse this Administration of “shredding” constitutional norms and waging a war on the rule of law. When I ask my friends on the other side, what exactly are you referring to? I get vacuous stares, followed by sputtering about the Travel Ban or some such thing. While the President has certainly thrown out the traditional Beltway playbook, he was upfront about that beforehand, and the people voted for him. What I am talking about today are fundamental constitutional precepts. The fact is that this Administration’s policy initiatives and proposed rules, including the Travel Ban, have transgressed neither constitutional, nor traditional, norms, and have been amply supported by the law and patiently litigated through the Court system to vindication.
    Indeed, measures undertaken by this Administration seem a bit tame when compared to some of the unprecedented steps taken by the Obama Administration’s aggressive exercises of executive power – such as, under its DACA program, refusing to enforce broad swathes of immigration law.”

    Soros/State Department TRAINS radicals in other countries in the use of Twatter and Farcebook for organizing discontents. GOAL REVOLUTION!

    A few years later Congress added:
    “…that NED consult with the State Department on any overseas programs it funds prior to the commencement of their activities…” @ 42:50

    Translation:
    The State Department is put in charge of interfering in the election of other countries at best and overthrowing governments at worse.
    …..

    So what the heck is NED?
    Their website says:

    The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is a private, nonprofit foundation dedicated to the growth and strengthening of democratic institutions around the world. Each year, NED makes more than 1,600 grants to support the projects of non-governmental groups abroad who are working for democratic goals in more than 90 countries.

    Since its founding in 1983, the Endowment has remained on the leading edge of democratic struggles everywhere, while evolving into a multifaceted institution that is a hub of activity, resources and intellectual exchange for activists, practitioners and scholars of democracy the world over.

    A UNIQUE INSTITUTION

    NED is a unique institution. The Endowment’s nongovernmental character gives it a flexibility that makes it possible to work in some of the world’s most difficult circumstances, and to respond quickly when there is an opportunity for political change. NED is dedicated to fostering the growth of a wide range of democratic institutions abroad, including political parties, trade unions, free markets and business organizations, as well as the many elements of a vibrant civil society that ensure human rights, an independent media, and the rule of law.

    This well-rounded approach responds to the diverse aspects of democracy and has proved both practical and effective throughout NED’s history. Funded largely by the U.S. Congress, the support NED gives to groups abroad sends an important message of solidarity to many democrats who are working for freedom and human rights, often in obscurity and isolation…..
    *https://www.ned.org/about/

    So how much money is this NGO getting???

    Newsweek writes:

    …The State Department is seeking to drastically cut funding to a decades-old non-profit that makes grants to support pro-American and pro-democracy media outlets, labor groups, and human rights organizations across the globe.

    As outlined in its fiscal 2019 budget request released in February, the State Department wishes to cut funding for the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) by two-thirds, from an estimated $168 million in 2018 to $67 million next year. The State Department also says it wants to transfer funds from the NED’s core institutes, including the National Democratic Institute and the International Republican Institute, to general State Department coffers open for competition.…..

      Absolutely every communist regime on the planet did this as soon as they got in power. I am surprised this communist traitor with his feet up on our furniture in the white house hasn’t done this until now!

      Over the past three years, it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause.

      So Obama started his military purge towards the end of his first term in office.
