General William Barr is under fire from his Co-President Donald J.
Trump for his refusal to issue unfounded indictments against Trump’s
2016 presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton, former Vice President
Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Barr, who has operated
as Trump’s consigliere and enforcer, has rarely refused to
carry out his directives.
hesitated in this instance because Trump was asking him to do
something that is clearly illegal and that would have placed him at
personal risk for jail time as he would have violated several federal
laws based on a sitting President’s desire to punish his
political enemies with no legal basis. Trump had already announced at
a rally that these indictments would be imminent.
had also declared that his Secretary Of State, Mike Pompeo, would
release thousands of Hillary Clinton’s emails from her tenure
as Obama’s Secretary of State when she, allegedly, illegally
circulated classified government documents. Rather than comply with
this request, Pompeo has given a vague response indicating that he is
working on getting them out.
is continuing to drop in the polls in his presidential race against
Joe Biden, recovering from the contraction of the coronavirus, and
flailing about in political desperation. To speed up his recovery,
his physicians administered heavy doses of steroid-based drug
cocktails which Speaker Nancy Pelosi has concluded put him in a “…
behavior has exhibited bizarre twists and turns during the past two
weeks: cancelling and re-starting negotiations for a COVID-19 relief
bill, backing a modestly funded bill and then asking Republicans and
Democrats to go big over the objection of Senate Majority Leader,
Mitch McConnell; and cancelling the second, virtual presidential
debate and then asking that it be rescheduled.
the meantime, Barr, who is committed to establishing an imperial
presidency, has not abandoned Trump. Neither has Mike Pompeo who has
plans to run for the presidency after Trump leaves office. Both plan
to coddle Trump to keep him from blowing himself up and endangering
them politically and criminally.
is quietly planning a series of devious political moves. He is
directing his U.S. Attorneys to pressure Governors and Secretaries of
State in the battleground states to undermine the voting process by
limiting voting venues, challenging voting eligibility, and closely
scrutinizing mailed-in ballots of voters of color and escalating
their disqualifications. Voters of color are already having their
mailed ballots excluded at a 2:1 ratio.
also plans to enhance Trump’s call for 50,000 of his supporters
to become poll watchers on November 3rd. This call went out to his
base which includes, among others, Proud Boys, Boogaloo Boys, and the
Wolverine Watchmen who hatched plots to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen
Whitmer and Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam in response to their COVID-19
Duke, who Trump won over during the 2016 election and the 2017
Charlottesville Unite the Right white supremacist and neo-Nazi rally,
is already assembling the remnants of the Ku Klux Klan to stir up
chaos on Election Day. Trump is depending on these jackals to help
push him to victory.
aforementioned right-wing militia groups, known for provoking and
engaging in targeted aggression against minority and Jewish citizens,
are expected to stimulate violence at numerous poll sites in urban,
high density minority voting locations in battleground states and to
provide Barr with an excuse to send in unidentified federal storm
troopers to quell the disturbances.
individuals will also intimidate local citizens in the name of
bringing law and order to the areas, the same strategy they used in
Portland and Seattle during the protests over police killings of
unarmed Black men and women during the past six months. Barr’s
plan is to cause such epic disruptions that the voter turnout will be
suppressed in areas of the Democratic base.
that way consequently, the turnout will be limited at the same time
that mailed-in ballots are being discounted. Barr and Trump hope this
double whammy will be enough to throw the election into the courts
where Trump has already appointed approximately 200 (25 percent) of
the 792 active federal judges and the soon to be confirmed third of
the nine United States Supreme Court justices.
this army of carefully screened and selected judicial acolytes, Barr
and Trump are convinced that they can prevail in the courts since
they will soon have a 6-3 U.S. Supreme Court majority after the
confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett who currently serves on the
Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. They believe that if they
get the race to the federal courts, they will win.
Barrett and her like-minded members of Trump’s judicial cult
are poised to overturn Obama’s health care act, Roe
and other federal court decisions that have led the nation toward
greater racial and social equality. Trump’s legal posse, if
unchecked, will set the country back for generations.
it is imperative that the Biden-Harris Campaign and the Democratic
National Committee marshal the necessary human and financial
resources to push back against the Barr-Trump chicanery at every
turn. The Democrats are in for a political fight unlike any they have
ever experienced because Barr and Trump are going for the Democrats’
political jugular vein.
must ignore all the polls and line up their defenses in all the
battleground states to ensure that they are fully prepared for the
