In a House Judiciary Committee hearing this week in Washington, lawbreakers inquisitioned AG William Barr, especially the Committee chairman Jerry Nadler (Chinese phone books and all). The Democrat lawbreakers questioned Barr relentlessly, and would immediately interrupt him as he began his answers.
Those snotty little brats are really just apparatchiks and loyalists to “The Party” and to power, certainly not to the concepts of “question and answer,” honest discussion of the issues and open debate, and transparency in government.
And they certainly are not friends of freedom of speech, but the opposite of that: censorship. They so much do not want Barr to get his side of the story out there that they would prefer only their own views be heard, and no one else’s.
However, I couldn’t care less that they gave poor old William Barr a hard time, harassing him and humiliating him, because Barr is just another Swamp creature and police statist, drug warrior, national security state apparatchik. So to hell with him as far as I’m concerned.
And the same thing two years ago with Brett Kavanaugh, Barr’s fellow Swamp creature, rubber-stamper of the police state and the fascist drug war. With Kavanaugh I could hardly have cared less that the Democrat Politburo and “social justice” fabricators made stuff up and launched false accusations toward him.
Barr is no better. Besides his anti-immigration policies, Barr was a CIA goon for 4 years, and imposed policies of going into other countries to apprehend suspects in fascist drug laws that shouldn’t exist. Barr and his daughter the DOJ’s drug commissar Mary Daly believe that drug usage, production and sales are criminal matters. People buying, selling, possessing or using certain drugs prohibited by the Rulers are criminals to them. (Unfortunately a lot of Amerikan fascists agree with them.)
Additionally, the Swamp creature police statist William Barr ia against reforming the criminal justice (sic) sentencing system. He wrote: “Our system of justice is not broken. Mandatory minimums and proactive law enforcement measures have caused a dramatic reduction in crime over the past 25 years, an achievement we cannot afford to give back.”
“Proactive law enforcement measures” means “Pre-Crime,” that is, when government bureaucrats attempt to predict that someone might commit some crime at some point. Perhaps we should call him Mr. Totalitarian?
In my view, all these people in Washington are loathsome Swamp creatures. They are not fans of property rights, the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution they were all sworn to protect and defend.
And regarding William Barr and U.S. attorney John Durham’s alleged “investigation” of CIA-FBI-DOJ crusade to get Donald Trump including fake dossiers and illegal FISA spying abuses, I am not holding my breath. In the end, Swamp creatures stick up for each other, and sweep each other’s crimes under the rug. They then go on to attend the same cocktail parties, yacht cruises and bubble baths in Washington.
And do you think the current FBI director Chris Wray is going to help at all in the alleged “investigation”? After Way pushed to withhold exculpatory evidence in the Mike Flynn case?
Anyway, as I’ve been saying for years, the best solution to “draining the Swamp” is decentralization. Dissolve the U.S. government completely. I very much recommend Lew Rockwell’s 30 Day Plan as the first and necessary step. And Murray Rothbard offered some tips on how and how not to desocialize.
We can start with 50 independent states (or “nation-states” if you prefer). This way the people have the power to “vote with their feet,” a power which sadly we do not have now. And when that is achieved the states can further decentralize themselves. No more government central planning, no more dysfunctional dependence on central planners for security.
