Their law, and their order.

TWEET METhe following is the last article you will see by David Frum on this site. We are not exactly ideological soulmates, but when it comes to the dangers of this presidency we have found some common ground.

"Yesterday afternoon, Attorney General William Barr appeared on ABC to demand that President Donald Trump quit making him look bad. Trump’s tweets, the attorney general said, “made it impossible to do my job.” Barr has been intervening in cases in ways that work to protect the president. Those interventions become much more difficult when the president demands them—rather than trusting Barr to know what to do without being told.

At the law schools of the 1970s and ‘80s, a militant faction of professors taught a harsh lesson. Law, they argued, is a myth that property owners invoke to protect themselves and oppress those without property. The legal reasoning that we students were so frantically working to absorb was in fact a deception, an expensive drapery concealing the brute realties of political and class power.
Some students indignantly rejected this teaching. Others accepted that it contained some truth, mixed with much exaggeration and propaganda.

But young William Barr—George Washington University Law School, Class of 1977—seems to have absorbed the radical message with perverse enthusiasm: Alrighty then! Let’s do it!
As attorney general, Barr has focused on two missions: on the one hand, cracking down on crimes by the poor and the foreign-born; on the other, going easy on the crimes of President Trump’s associates. This administration likes to call itself “tough on crime” and to revile its Democratic opponents as “the party of crime.”

But toward its own many crimes, the Trump administration is genially indulgent. Like the gangsters around the table in the first Godfather movie, the Trump administration is able to convince itself that its victims are animals without souls—and that its own lawbreaking is a necessary, even honorable, accommodation to the facts of life. “The real crimes were on the other side!” Donald Trump tweeted after he heard the news of Roger Stone’s recommended sentence of seven to nine years—exactly in line with federal sentencing guidelines for Stone’s convicted offenses.
As attorney general, Barr has delivered a series of speeches about the importance of sternly enforcing the law against lower-class people. In a February 11 speech to county sheriffs, he warned against officials who refuse to comply with police work:

Another similar problem is the increasing number of district attorneys who have fashioned for themselves a new role of judge-legislator-prosecutor. These self-styled “social justice” reformers are refusing to enforce entire categories of law, including law against resisting police officers. In so doing, these DAs are putting everyone in danger.
In a November lecture before the Federalist Society, Barr argued that issues of police motive or bias are irrelevant to the enforcement of law against ordinary people:
The Supreme Court has traditionally refused, across a wide variety of contexts, to inquire into the subjective motivation behind governmental action. To take the classic example, if a police officer has probable cause to initiate a traffic stop, his subjective motivations are irrelevant.
In an October talk to Department of Justice employees, Barr spoke of the hardships endured in the pursuit of justice: “the long absences, the ever-present awareness of the risks.” But those hardships, he said, are required to sustain “a society where the law will be enforced and your fellow citizens will be protected.”

At the same time as Barr was pronouncing these stern words, however, he was also shrewdly rejiggering his department to enable him to do special favors for criminals of the highest rank.

When Barr was confirmed as attorney general on February 14, 2019, the Trump presidency faced two imminent prosecutorial threats: Robert Mueller’s special-counsel investigation and the office of the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia. Barr promptly moved to neutralize both.
First, he attacked Mueller. He took early possession of the Mueller report and held it for almost a month while publicly mischaracterizing its findings. Four weeks after the report’s release, Mueller resigned and Barr closed the special counsel’s office, moving all its remaining prosecutorial work to the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.

That office was headed by a prosecutor independent of the Trump administration, Jessie Liu. Liu was then deftly moved aside. In December, President Trump nominated her for an important job at the U.S. Treasury. Liu resigned on February 1. To fill Liu’s place, Barr turned to one of his closest aides, Timothy Shea, who was appointed to head the office on an interim basis. Once Shea was installed, Liu’s nomination was withdrawn.

That has produced a remarkable result. Barr and Trump have tightened their control of the U.S. attorney’s office without Senate questioning of either the outgoing or the incoming U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.

These maneuvers have enabled Barr to bestow leniency upon Trump cronies convicted of crimes.[The entire article is here.]

When Americans finally realize that there has been a total takeover of the institutional norms and the rule of law in America, it will be too late. It happened before (See the civil rights struggles of the fifties and sixties.), and it will happen again.

mike from iowa said...

This is the rabid wingnut Barr chose to collect lies from Rudy on Bidens and send them to the DOJ. Wingnuts always appoint extreme partisan wingnuts to investigate Dems. Then they lie and claim Dems always appoint extreme Dems to investigate wingnuts.

Before his confirmation as US Attorney in December 2017, Brady was the head of litigation for Federated Hermes, a Pittsburgh-based investment firm. He’d also taught constitutional law at the University of Pittsburgh and served as an assistant US attorney in Pittsburgh from 2004 to 2010. Prior to that role, he clerked for Thomas Hardiman, a federal appeals court judge who was reportedly on Trump’s short list for the Supreme Court ahead of his selection of Brett Kavanaugh.

“I’m sure there are thousands of other cases he’d rather be spending his time on.”
Brady has donated a little less than $10,000 to Republican politicians over the years according to federal election records, with $5,200 going to Sen. Ben Sasse, the Nebraska Republican who once drew the ire of Trump supporters by trying get someone else to run as the party’s nominee in 2016. When asked about Barr’s arrangement with Brady, a spokesperson for Sasse confirmed to Mother Jones that the two are friends dating back to college, “but the first he heard about it was when the news broke.”

Some folks are wondering what will happen with the DOJ when the shoe is on the other foot.
It's apparently a complicated issue when you are considering the prosecution of previous administrations, and I understand that. The use of the criminal justice system against one's political opponents is definitely some banana republic shit.
But I still contend that the lack of consequences for Republican presidential misbehavior is a big factor in how we got this far away from the observation of the rule of law. Nixon was pardoned. Reagan was never tried for Iran/Contra. George W. Bush and his crew may have travel restrictions, but otherwise tortured with impunity.
Why should any other Republican president believe he would face any consequences for his behavior? What Republican crime could rise to the level of "must be reined in" if torture didn't?

“George W. Bush and his crew may have travel restrictions, but otherwise tortured with impunity.”

Is that really even the case?

If any foreign government genuinely attempted to prosecute Dubya or anyone from his administration for having launched the Iraq War or (legally, far more plausibly) having authorized indefinite detention and torture of accused terrorists, all hell would break loose.

Realistically, I don’t think any government would do it, for fear of starting a war with the US that would ravage their country. Defending the human rights of random Arabs simply doesn’t rate highly enough to incur that kind of risk.

mike from iowa said...

dumbass dubya went waaaaayyyyyyyyyyyy beyond indefinite detention and torture of detained terrorists. He was pulling people off the street and flying them to black sites in the middle east for serious torture and then just dumping them back on the street in whatever country they were taken to. It was called extraordinary rendition and was illegal and against international laws.

dumbass dubya violated UN laws when he invaded Iraq and either slaughtered or caused to be displaced a quarter of Iraq's population of 25 million. He was accused of war crimes and thus the travel restrictions he and Cheney face. If they get caught in foreign nations they are subject to arrest and likely sent to the Hague for trial. (not all foreign nations would comply)

And don't forget water boarding, which was the Cheney choice for torture is a violation of international laws and the Geneva Conventions and is also allegedly illegal in the US.

NO foreign nations would comply.

The US isn’t a signatory to the treaty that created the International Criminal Court at the Hague, and doesn’t recognize its authority over US citizens. Any country that sent one of the Bushies to the Hague would be regarded by the US as having committed a kidnapping, which would likely be seen as an act of war.

I know that a lot of people on the left wish it were not so, but this is the reality.

Besides the fact you know it was due to hard work by Obama and Dems and without the help of any wingnuts, that got the economy out of recession and towards the tremendous growth of the past 11 years.

drumpf just happened to get appointed at the right time to enjoy the ride he has done practically nothing to help. Not even his taxcuts for the koch bro had much effect on Obama's steamroller.

Unemployment sat at 4.5% when drumpf was appointed and the needle has barely moved 1% down. It went down 5.5% under Obama. Stock market grew by 150% under Obama. Barely a third f that under drumpf.

“‘Andrew McCabe did nothing wrong’

According to Trump’s minion, Jeff Sessions, who launched the investigation.

And yet, curiously, the government have dropped all charges against him! That must be because they’re such nice guys and they were showing compassion for McCabe. After all, that’s what the Trump administration are known for, being such sweet, super-nice guys. It couldn’t possibly be that they’ve falsely accused someone. Again.

Oh, and McCabe’s wrongful termination lawsuit is still active.

Tell me, why is it that everyone Trump says is a bad guy, mysteriously keeps getting exonerated, while Trump keeps having to pay off the people who sue him, and all of his friends keep going to jail? Could it be that the wingnut media stories you have consumed have “lacked candor”?

"Seriously?"

Affirmative Action admission to Princeton, on a full scholarship, despite "her standardized test scores not being fully comparable to those of other applicants." Her signature achievement was complaining about the lack of Latino faculty members.

Affirmative Action admission to Yale Law School, once more on a scholarship, despite once again "somewhat lower standardized test scores".

First job during her second year as a summer associate with a prominent New York law firm, where she herself characterized "her performance there as lacking". In her third year, she filed a formal complaint against an established Washington, D.C., law firm for suggesting during a recruiting dinner that she was at Yale only via affirmative action (which she herself had already admitted).

Eventually failing in the private sector, she went on to a series of government appointed jobs where she pursued a career in ethnic advocacy, continuously being advanced upward despite undistinguished performance.

As a federal circuit judge, she had five rulings reviewed by the Supreme Court, who overturned three of them.

"The most consistent concern expressed by those advising President Obama was that Sotomayor, although an able lawyer, was “not that smart and kind of a bully on the bench,” as one former Second Circuit clerk for another judge put it. “She has an inflated opinion of herself, and is domineering during oral arguments, but her questions aren’t penetrating and don’t get to the heart of the issue.”

Democratic Socialist game plan in a nutshell:


Definition of oligarchy
1
: government by the few
The corporation is ruled by oligarchy.
2
: a government in which a small group exercises control especially for corrupt and selfish purposes
a military oligarchy was established in the country
also : a group exercising such control
An oligarchy ruled the nation.
3
: an organization under oligarchic control
That country is an oligarchy.

Terry stops (aka legal stop-and-frisks) require the person to be doing something suspicious or suggestive of criminal activity, like hiding in someone’s bushes while peering in their window at night.

You cannot legally stop someone and pat them down for weapons, solely for the “crime” of being a member of a “bad” ethnic group. Which is what Bloomberg openly mandated while he was mayor of NY.

One more time: Two grand juries refused to indict him despite Barr's hand picked prosecutors' best efforts.
It's said that any prosecutor worth their salt can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, but somehow Barr's best couldn't get an indictment on McCabe in two tries?
I know you really want him to be guilty so as to support all the lies in your head from the propaganda you consume, but after a while you just end up crowing about what Krugman calls "zombie ideas", that is, ideas that should have been killed by the evidence but somehow keep shambling along eating your brains.

Fergus' EPA is rolling back regulations on the emissions of mercury and other toxins from power plants that large energy producers are calling an unnecessary step in a system which they say is working as is.

Referring to an article in the Washington Post, Steve Benen noted:

"The article noted that Exelon, one of the nation's largest utilities, told the EPA that its effort to change a rule that has cut emissions of mercury and other toxins is "an action that is entirely unnecessary, unreasonable, and universally opposed by the power generation sector."

It's a striking realization when Trump's Environmental Protection Agency takes a position that is more pro-pollution than the position of polluters themselves."

-Doug in Oakland

dinthebeast said...

Comparing the economy under Obama and Trump at the same points in their presidencies, the Post found that the economy grew faster under Obama, hiring grew faster under Obama, the S&P 500 grew faster under Obama, the unemployment rate shrunk faster under Obama, and the national debt grew slower under Obama.

The analysis concluded, “[I]f we are linking economic numbers to presidential performance, Trump’s insistence that his abilities are unparalleled are rendered somewhat suspect in that he ranks second out of the last two presidents on a lot of these indicators.”

As we discussed at the time, it’s worth emphasizing that it’d be wrong to suggest the economy is bad under Trump. It’s not, at least not yet. But the more the Republican tries to convince people that he’s responsible for the greatest economic boom since the dawn of humanity, the more relevant it becomes that he hasn’t yet matched Obama’s record of success.

"Two grand juries refused to indict him despite Barr's hand picked prosecutors' best efforts. It's said that any prosecutor worth their salt can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, but somehow Barr's best couldn't get an indictment on McCabe in two tries?"

It takes a lot of salt to get a grand jury to indict a Democrat in Washington DC, which went 98% for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

McCabe didn’t lie just once, he lied four times. He lied to James Comey. He lied to the Office of Professional Responsibility and he lied twice under oath to the Inspector General.

She was not smart enough to gain entry to Princeton or Yale based on merit.

She was not accomplished or intelligent enough to be appointed to the Supreme Court on merit.

You are a credentialist, one of those people who think being given a title is the same thing as earning it. You are like the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz, who thinks it is the piece of paper handed you that provides you with worth, not what you might have done to merit it.

Our society hands out pieces of paper and shiny statues all the time, not always because the person earned them. Look at President Peace Prize with his Oscar and Grammys, who has been handed everything he ever got, including Ivy League admissions.

Then this happened outside of the NBA All Star game, to absolutely zero media coverage:
So last night at NBA event, suv breaches the secure lot where command van and other police vehicles are, 3 shitheads bail out and run, driver tries to tell cops they can keep car and tries to leave, they grab him and search car, 5 guns and tool box full of drugs found. DC Carter, soon to [be] chief decides to 19P it because it's one of the DJs hired for the event. Are you fucking kidding me. He needs to be dumped immediately. Mayor you paying attention?
Detailed to the United Center tonight, NBA entertainment entourage pull into parking lot. Verbal altercation with several occupants and United Center security. Parked their vehicle in a no parking area and walked away. Five firearms and drugs recovered from said vehicle. Nobody goes to jail. Unbelievable!!!
On Sunday a private company with bomb dogs was working the ALL STAR game. As a vehicle was inspected a dog alerted the handler. I've even heard more than one alerted on the same vehicle. CPD units were requested via radio along with bomb techs. Here is where things get interesting- the vehicle occupants who were apparently guests of a celebrity, exited the vehicle and just walked away and into the venue. Inside the vehicle officers discovered narcotics and several guns. That is when newly anointed Chief Carter stepped in and said to let them -the occupants- walk. I was also told that the Chief's daughter was seen hanging out with said celebrity during the NBA weekend...

I swear, the only appropriate metaphor for the Trump presidency is the stench coming through the floorboards at John Wayne Gacy's house.

In this case we have to wait for Trump to get thrown out to be able to look under those floorboards at the full source of the stench, never mind what's in the open air. The crimes, from graft and emoluments and self-serving policies to quid pro quos up the wazoo, will fill up a library. New volumes will be added for years, spurred on by investigative reporters who have so far tried and failed to get beneath the cover-ups. Trump may be long dead before the full ugly cost of his criminality has been tallied.

There's no evidence of any US policy decisions under Trump that have been taken to further Russian interests. Trump has been much more adversarial with Putin than Obama was. So by your logic, was Obama a Russian plant? Remember his 2012 hot mic moment with Russian president Dmitry Medvedev:

President Obama: "On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space."

President Medvedev: "Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…"

President Obama: "This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility."

President Medvedev: "I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir, and I stand with you.

https://youtu.be/iEgBbxIJZFs?t=22

No, Obama wasn't a Russian agent, but just imagine how you would react if Trump had done the same thing. Or stood by while Putin took Crimea. Or had his administration approve the sale of 25% of US uranium reserves to Russian interests.

The Russian collusion hoax has been pushed to prevent any cooperation at all between the US Russia. To that end, it has been very successful and has prevented what would have been a golden opportunity to deescalate the endless wars that have been a disaster for US interests.

It was only a train wreck for Bloomberg. But that’s a good thing. He is basically a Republican, and has zero business running for the Democratic Party nomination. It is disgusting that he is allowed to spend apparently infinite amounts of money trying to bamboozle voters into believing he is Obama the Second.

I know Obama himself has, wisely, tried to stay out of the primary race, but it might be time for him to step up and say, “No, fuck this guy. He’s a right-winger. DON’T vote for Bloomberg.”

The United States also had no duty to intervene, given Ukraine is not part of NATO and doesn’t benefit from its Article 5 (or “collective defense”) protections.

Wingnuts thought the news of Russia hacking the 2020 election were covered up by appointing a drumpf dick sucker with no experience in intel matters, like drumpf. No wonder they are so mad. Curses foiled again.

DSI will now be controlled by drumpf who will tell you what Putin says is the truth.

"Correction: Obama was President when Putin seized Crimea, and he apparently was just fine with that."

No, he imposed crushing sanctions that trump and his people promptly tried to reverse. Still trying.

So we find out Stone's lawyers knew the jury foreman was an active Democrat and had no problems with her being on the jury.

Barr himself said the prosecution of Stone was righteous and he was glad Stone was found guilty.

All it took was one phone call from drumpf to change the whole wingnut narrative. My my my.

Mulvaney Says U.S. Economy ‘Desperate’ for Immigrants

February 20, 2020 at 2:22 pm EST By Taegan Goddard 176 Comments

“Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told a crowd at a private gathering in England on Wednesday night that the Trump administration ‘needs more immigrants’ for the U.S. economy to continue growing,” according to audio obtained by the Washington Post.

Said Mulvaney: “We are desperate — desperate — for more people. We are running out of people to fuel the economic growth that we’ve had in our nation over the last four years. We need more immigrants.”

2 people died of coronavirus after leaving infected ship. The US flew home infected people with uninfected passengers on a jet. Moar drumpf dumbfuckery.

On the other side, it appears that Africans might be as susceptible to new-variant coronavirus as Chinese, so a good dose of it might clean up a whole bunch of "economically deprived" parts of the USA.

No Caucasian appears to have even gotten seriously sick from this coronavirus yet.  Wouldn't it be great if the Chinese solved America's "race problem"?

According to Stanford Medical, It is indeed the SINGLE reason women in this country live 10 years longer and weigh an average of 19 KG lighter than we do.

(And by the way, it is not related to genetics or some secret diet and absolutely EVERYTHING about "HOW" they eat.)

BTW, I said "HOW", not "WHAT"...
