  1. Barr is just TRumpzilla’s puppet! Barr is destroying the rule of law at the bidding of TRumpzilla. Barr needs to be impeached or resign now!

    • wiremantw Freedom & Liberty Forever <<<————————-Evangelical Christian Fascist Cultist TRumpanzee!!

      They want Barr out because he’s exposing they’re corruption. Biden’s dirty and he’s [panic]ing.

    • Mike Fernandez blah, blah, blah, Obama did this, Clinton did that! Did Clinton or Obama conduct a Quid Pro Quo for personal benefit? No! Did Obama or Clinton threaten the rule of Law or the independence of the DOJ or the separation of powers? No! So you can continue to spread your Evangelical Christian Cultist Fascist Cray Cray, but just wear your tin foil hat when you do it, so we know where you’re coming from.

    • B.J Cameron yeah…they just dropped the McCabe investigation dude so get that one out if your routine. Barr is a puppet, a Conservative Catholic, long term conservative hatchet man. The fact that he worked fir Bush Jr only proves he will do anything for the conservative cause ( remember those elusive WMDs Bush was protecting us from?). You are not showering him in glory here!! All he wants, like all religious fanatics on the GOP side if politics is Gilead. And that’s is what TRumpzilla is going to deliver fir the Evangelicals and conservative Catholics. In his eye!

    • THE ANGRY QUAD Dude it’s a bad thing not a refrain.

    Greatest abuse of Power America has seen and Republican Senate tolerating Trump abuse … Disgusting

    • 88Gibson LesPaul so you can’t explain it got it.
      You call someone something but can’t explain it. That’s fine all you had to do is say you don’t know.
      I wouldn’t be throwing out words if you can’t explain what they mean. Instead you come back with a defensive and childish response.got it.

      FCC says Fox considered: SATIRE the content of which contains some accurate news, but has been biased an skewed, and not deemed to be Newsworthy. It should Not be your primary source of information. Should they choose to report factual content the FCC will consider reclassifying their Network as a Valid News source. ( Not verbatim) Look it up.

    • Cynthia Pikoulas you do know they opinion shows right. And news that aren’t opinion.
      They even have more democrat host.
      How many republican host do msnbc cnn have on?

    • J Bell probably cause the NRA donations originate in Russia

    • @Derek Heskell Derek I will vote for ALL Republicans. Thanks.

      Yeah , Barr is the Goering of Trump.

      @Tom bryan Benghazi. Pizzagate.😂

    • David Hale obama was great at hiding the terrible things he did but alot of u trump supporters didnt like obama simply cuz he was black which fits right into the trump conspiracy theory that he wasnt american etc etc etc cuz ya know republicans are racist AF

    • @David Hale If you don’t comprehend the danger to our Republic, take some night courses. I’m blown away that so many of my fellow countrymen appear to be clueless about the rule of law

  4. The conservative movement has continued with its long-term project to transform the U.S. into an undemocratic, quasi-authoritarian plutocracy. That would be the group of far-right lawyers who started the Federalist Society, …They developed the theory of the “unitary executive,”
    Barr and his legal cabal appear to have seen the clueless and corrupt Donald Trump as a perfect instrument to test their theory, and perhaps set legal precedents that would enable future right-wing presidents to use the full power of the presidency to dominate American politics without regard to democratic norms or congressional checks and balances.

    Two women, and one man in mind= 3 choices for Att. Gen.!!!

  6. Barr needs to resign or be forced out by impeachment. The GOP has already given Chump a pass and emboldened him to think even more that he can do anything without consequences…we surely don’t need the US AG adding to his authoritarian mentality.

    • And Hunter Biden needs to get his job back. Biden has been selling out the American middle class for his whole political career. Watch “Joe Biden brags about getting Ukrainian prosecutor fired” There’s no way they can spin this

    • PS Kelly W. you are nothing but a dog faced pony soldier

    • @jon Morgan No Need to spin that because even the UKRAINIANS said that same prosecutor was CORRUPT, and they were glad to get rid of him.

    You knew by Barr’s evasive non-answers to Kamala Harris’s questions at his confirmation hearing that he is a self-serving, lying weasel.

    • TRUE, VERY TRUE. Especially when FU-barr said he was “grappling with the word suggest,” all the while he was really grappling with TRIMP’S D!CK in his mouth.

    • @Patrick McCarthy Sir, it appears you have no idea as to the role of an Atty General in our Republic. Barr has proven himself to be little more than Trump’s lap dog. That dog don’t hunt in the United States.

      @sun dial Hey man, let’s exclude people who don’t agree with us, because that’s what the USA is all about, right?

    • @Zissou Moonshot
      Liberals have been waging war on anyone who disagrees with them , just look at the attack on free speech in colleges like Berkeley and look at your foot soldiers Antifa who are physically assaulting conservatives and you have the nerve to sneer at my post

  8. in my simple mind, l cannot imagine how Anything is going to get better Unless Both the White House and the Senate are in the hands of people who are working for this country instead of their party. Anyway, l appreciate the well-formulated questions free of vitriol. Thank you NW

      When Bernie wins, he will have to do his best with just the House. He will have to use all his executive power and declare states of emergency. At least there will be no risk of him being impeached, no matter what he does.

    It’s just ridiculous what they’ve done to the Judicial system, Remember everything Trump touches actually does die, Right before your eyes and that’s no lie ! 😵👁👁

    • I hope all democrats are touched.

  10. I can’t believe this outrageous abuse of power. Come on! America does not want a king.

  11. self directed soul | February 17, 2020 at 8:12 PM | Reply

    If Bernie wins the dems better get in line!

  12. The Democratic party…need to mobilize… stop fighting and pull together!!

  13. Nicole, just get under the table and blow him already.
    No pushback whatsoever.
    would you interview Trump like that?

  14. I love the whole Democratic party

  15. I just wanted to say I’m with Bernie

    ……and I’m ready to brawl!!

    • Yah, but if Bernie doesn’t get the nomination, are you ready to vote? Or “teach them a lesson” by siding with Trump?

  16. He sounds like a old man that’s out of touch but doesn’t want to let everyone know he’s out of touch. I’ll stick with Bernard Sanders.

  17. Wow. He would even consider “including women” in his search for an AG. How very modern of him!

    • You caught that too? lol Just Joe being Joe.
      Vote for progressives 2020. Up and down the ballot. These so-called “centrists” are a joke.

  18. “Bizarre.” Yes! That’s a good word Biden is using for what we’re seeing with Trump, his Admin, Barr, Trumplicans on Capitol Hill & the disturbing way they have taken the rule of law & the Constitution and just ignored and disrespected such foundational pillars of American beliefs & values. These “aliens” are just not gonna stop until they are forced to. That’s it. Until they hit a force stronger than they are, and I guess we’ll have to wait till Nov. to see it, we are going to be subjected to this disgusting display of American politics at its worst, most dangerous, dirtiest and gone very, very, wrong.

  19. It’s really convenient how their comparing Bernie to Trump.

    They’re literally NOTHING alike.

  20. Now is the time for American citizens to act to stop this nightmare. We must act immediately…Millions must march.. It is time for America to stop the Orange Fascist and his underlings like Barr. I am convinced tRump and Barr will try to stop the November election…
    We must act before its too late. We will only have ourselves to blame if we sit quietly and do nothing… It is time.
