REPORTS OF BARR’S POSSIBLE RESIGNATION HAS US ASKING QUESTIONS. IS BARR BITING BACK AND LEVERAGING THE PRESIDENT WITH RESIGNATION, REPORTEDLY? IS THIS BY DESIGN? IS BARR SUCCUMBING TO PRESSURE FROM THE PRESIDENT’S ENEMIES?
About a week ago, I wrote THIS piece drawing attention to how and why the Left/Dems/DSSG had shifted their focus away from an emboldened Trump donning heavy post-impeachment armor; and re-sighting the cross-hairs precisely on Attorney General William Barr and the Department of Justice. I turned right around and wrote THIS piece drawing further scrutiny to Barr in the matter. In the midst of it all Barr and President Trump engaged in public exchanges (interviews, social media, etc.) about accusations that the President was meddling in DOJ affairs and that his social media habits were making it difficult for the AG to do his job. Most recently I wrote THIS piece questioning whether or not this strategy shift helps or hurts the President.
According to TGP in THIS article, Barr is now reported to be considering resigning. Yeah, you read that right – RESIGNING. It should be noted that through his spokesperson, Barr has denied these rumors and further, the President has voiced “total confidence” in Barr as his AG.
The question immediately becomes – Is this a good thing or a bad thing for the President and ‘the cause’? I’m not sure. I’m using this article to weigh the options and perhaps decide at the end.
Here’s the another relevant question. Is Barr’s exit a function of a construct (a planned occurrence made to appear organic or authentic and with a crafted narrative as the backdrop or explanation) and if so, is it Barr’s or is the the President’s enemies?
Reportedly, Barr is basing his possible resignation on the President’s use of social media to defend his personal and his administration’s interests. That is something that is fluid, adaptable and most important, predictable – the president has reliable and consistent social media habits. So, are we bearing witness to a construct for Barr’s exit from the DOJ? Was the President’s willful participation in publicly criticizing and disagreeing with with Barr (both rightful and appropriate from the President’s perspective) the pretext for this news development? Is this a construct that will result in Barr’s departure, Rosen’s emergence and a landscape shift at DOJ due to the old boss being gone and the new boss grabbing the reigns? All of this would imply that Barr’s leaving was a planned event. That’s an interesting development.
Question – How could Barr, who has the full weight of the US judicial system at his disposal, sign-up to DRAIN THE SWAMP and take the President’s enemies head-on in the most dangerous global criminal, corruption and political spying scheme this country has ever seen and then state that he is unable to continue moving forward because of the President’s proclivity to use social media smartly? The President’s social media habits were established long before Barr was even offered the job. This smells. This is flimsy. This doesn’t make sense through a lens that sees the swamp pragmatically and logically.
Or, is this a construct whereby Barr was inserted to engage in institutional preservation (open investigations, farm-out all of the work to US attorneys and vacuum up all of the evidence to be secured away from ever seeing daylight – Huber, Durham and now reports of another independent counsel being appointed? All of that while the President is forced to deliberate as to whether or not to sue his political enemies as a remedy for his own DOJ’s refusal to enforce the rule of law against his criminal and corrupt political opponents.
Or is this a construct that was weaved by the Democrats shift in strategy as I precisely identified a week ago? That happened – in full force, in plain view and it’s in full effect right now. So then, is all of what we have seen from Barr and Trump merely them playing along to allow the BOOMERANG to do its job (I’ve already commented on how this strategy would ultimately boomerang back on the President’s opponents)?
I’m leaving room for Barr to be potentially leaving on his own accord, whether it is a function of his insertion by the DSSG or by his own volition as a legitimate AG or by means of a construct (a predetermined plan).
What we do know is that the Left/Dems/DSSG began sowing the seeds for Barr’s ouster back in 2018. From late 2018 through the present day, you will find the “Barr is Trump’s personal attorney” narrative sprinkled into the mix or even sewn-into the fabric of the landscape. If you care to go search for them, you’ll see that particular narrative repeatedly uttered by the Left identical to the way pretext is established.
THIS New York Times opinion piece from 10 Dec 18 establishes firm pretext for the ‘Barr is the President’s personal‘ attorney narrative such that there is backstory to any such accusations when the precise time arises. They knew that there would be a day of reckoning and that day seems to be upon us.
This we know is absolutely certain – the Left/Dems/DSSG abruptly shifted their attack focus post-impeachment from the President to AG Barr and the DOJ. What remains is determining how, why and by whom the apparent constructs were put in place and, more importantly, whom do they serve.
Here’s where I stand with more to come because more evidence is needed: Barr is either 1) attempting to leverage the President to remain in office whereby his threats to resign are idle ones or 2) he is actually formulating his exit by a) his own volition, b) a plan constructed with the President, c) a plan constructed by the DSSG (institutional preservation) or d) succumbing to pressure from the Left/Dems/DSSG.
IN ONE SHOT – There’s a chance that a Barr exit from the DOJ could be the impetus for a complete landscape shift; especially since the authority to declassify would hypothetically be transferred to the Deputy Attorney General of the US, Mr. Jeffrey Rosen; albeit it a slim one.
Is it time to get to know Mr. Rosen a little better? Yes. I wrote about him when he was first appointed and I’ll revisit those words in the next article. MEET MR. JEFFREY A. ROSEN
Stay tuned because this has the potential to be landscape altering.
