Attorney General Barr trying to reign in the madhouse at the DOJ. :)

"Name one successful organization or institution where the lowest level employees' decisions are deemed sacrosanct, there aren't. There aren't any letting the most junior members set the agenda," Barr said during his speech.

"It might be a good philosophy for a Montessori preschool, but it is no way to run a federal agency," the attorney general added.

The ideas that the DOJ could, and should be apolitical are both ludicrous.

Is this like the Portland FBI making declarations that AG Barr is then told he must respect as fact since Barr wasn’t on-scene—or he’d just look like a PDJT apologist?

I’ve never said a cross word about this man for a reason. That being said, is it wrong for me to hope the Marxists have pushed him to nearing his limits?

I was the same, until a couple months ago, God help us all.

Hugh yawn. Words are so, so cheap. Indictments are not.

I have read several articles where Barr has said we can expect significant events by “the end of summer.” Hope he’s getting warmed up. End of summer is next Tues, 9/22.

"You know, putting a national lockdown, stay at home orders, is like house arrest. Other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint, this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history," Barr said as a round of applause came from the crowd.

I think formerly interned Japanese Americans would beg to differ.

Barr.....”You know, putting a national lockdown, stay at home orders, is like house arrest. Other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint, this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history,” as a round of applause came from the crowd.

I agree.

That was a horse of an entirely different color.

My father, who spent 3+ years with the Japanese as a WWII POW, would have loved to trade places with any Japanese person interned in the US, if even for a day.

When he returned to his parents’ doorstep, he was 88 pounds of skin and bones that his family literally did not recognize.

Who’s the FBi dude? Wray?

He has made every excuse and laid the roadblocks.

Hard to explain how Barr let the same thing happen - for the third time - with all Dems “investigating” the coup.

How does that happen?

If its taken this long for fatass to lay down the law, nothing will come of the Durham report. Both should be fired and later arrested for conspiracy to cover up a coup!

I don't think that's how Montessori works. Even the progressive Dewey would have drawn the line better. Sounds more like a Rousseau thing to me.

While Barr waxes philosophical, Weissman's cabal literally destroyed evidence of likely federal crimes -- perhaps even sedition or treason -- by erasing 31 phones that were under subpoena.

Until they get the Roger Stone 6 a.m. treatment, Barr should keep his fat mouth shut.
