Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) admonished Attorney General Bill Barr for not hiring enough black people, regardless of whether they are qualified or not, for prestigious positions within the Department of Justice.
Richmond addressed Barr while he appeared before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday where he launched into his anti-white rant.
“You started your testimony with eloquent words about the life and legacy of John Lewis fighting systematic racism, voter intimidation, civil rights. The one thing you have in common with your two predecessors, both Attorney General Sessions and Attorney General Whitaker, when you came here and brought your top staff, you brought no black people,” Richmond said.
“That, sir, is systematic racism. That is exactly what John Lewis spent his life fighting, and so, I would just suggest that actions speak louder than words, and you really should keep the name of the honorable John Lewis out the Department of Justice’s mouth,” he added.

Barr had to deal with belligerently stupid questions all day from Democrats who hate law and order and want to see terror continue to reign on the streets.
“Can you commit today that the department will not use federal law enforcement as a prop in the president’s re-election campaign?” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) asked Barr.
“Can you commit today that the department will not use federal law enforcement as a prop in the president’s re-election campaign?” he continued, not letting Barr get a word in edgewise.
“It’s all out in the open, where the people can see what you are doing for themselves. The president wants footage for his campaign ads, and you appear to be serving it up to him as ordered,” Nadler added.
“SHAME ON YOU MR. BARR, SHAME ON YOU,” Nadler said to conclude his offensive and disrespectful rant.
Barr was finally able to get off his response in which he schooled Nadler for his disingenuous and dishonest partisan rhetoric.
“Mr. Chairman, you’ve conflated two different things. The effort like LeGend is to deal with violent crime. Crime that’s committed on the streets of the city, again, predatory violence like murder, shootings, which are soaring in some cities right now. That does not involve countering protesters as you refer to it. Civil disturbance is a different set of issues and I just reject the idea that the department has flooded anywhere and attempted to suppress demonstrators,” Barr responded.
Barr added that “the fact of the matter is if you take Portland, the courthouse is under attack. The federal resources are inside the perimeter around the courthouse defending it from almost two months of daily attacks where people march to the court, try to gain entrance and have set fires, thrown things, used explosives and injured police including just this past weekend perhaps permanently blinding three federal officers with lasers. We are on the defense, we are not out looking for trouble, and if the state and the city would provide the law enforcement services that other jurisdictions do we would have no need to have additional marshals in the courthouse.”
The Trump administration is standing for the truth against the forces of evil. Barr needs to continue to bolster enforcement measures in liberal cities to restore the rule of law.
Sen. Josh Hawley Folds? Blames Trump for ‘Inflammatory, Irresponsible, Wrong’ Comments
Hawley is no leader.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has been criticized for leading the GOP’s electoral college objection amidst widespread allegations of voter fraud, and he has responded by throwing former President Donald Trump under the bus.
Hawley issued a statement to oppose the impeachment of Trump following the conclusion of his presidency, which is unprecedented and unlawful, in which he threw Trump under the bus and essentially blamed him for the violence in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
HAWLEY: "I think ex-president's rhetoric on the day was inflammatory. I think it was irresponsible. I think it was wrong. But I think that this impeachment effort is, I mean, I think it's blatantly unconstitutional. It's a really really, really dangerous precedent."

In the aftermath of the violence, many left-wing voices accused Hawley of sedition and treason for asking for an investigation into a laundry list of irregularities that have been widely ignored by authorities.
There have even been calls by Democrats to revoke the will of the people by ejecting Hawley from office in order to punish him for drawing attention to voter fraud, as Big League Politics has reported:
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
Hawley finally caved under the pressure, and he has shown he is not the man to take the reigns to lead the America First movement after Trump.
