William Barr Set to be Confirmed as Attorney General

Published

on

The U.S Senate voted to invoke cloture on William Barr’s nomination for Attorney General on Tuesday by a comfortable margin of 55-44. The vote sets Barr up to be confirmed.

Rand Paul voted no on cloture, citing Barr’s stances on government surveillance and the Fourth Amendment. Democrats Kyrsten Sinema, Doug Jones, and Joe Manchin voted yes, suggesting a strong possibility they’ll go on to vote yes for Barr’s final confirmation vote.

The vote will likely be held later this week.

Barr has previously served as U.S Attorney General in the administration of George H.W Bush. His connection to the Bush family has been a cause for concern among some Trump supporters and conservatives, but there’s also cause for optimism upon examining his track record.

Barr has supported Jeff Session’s asylum and immigration law reforms, which are crucial to deterring illegal migration. Center for Immigration Studies Director Mark Krikorian told Big League Politics that Barr’s track record on the issue in the first Bush administration was good, describing himself as cautiously optimistic.

Barr’s potential confirmation also could implement an Attorney General fully independent of the Mueller-Russia probe. Jeff Sessions recused himself of any oversight of Robert Mueller’s investigation, allowing the former FBI director to run wild with what many have called prosecutorial misconduct.

Barr has been critical of the Mueller probe’s open-ended and overtly political investigation, describing a need for appropriate law enforcement oversight of the operation. He warned that Mueller risked “taking on the look of an entirely political operation to overthrow the president.

Barr would take over for current interim Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.

Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol

Guilt by association.

Published

on

Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.

Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.

Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.

Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.

Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.

Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
