This all feels so Soviet

Barr is not in service to the country. Not at all. He is in service to Trump. This all feels so Soviet.

He makes Roy Cohen seem Bush League. Barr is using the Justice Department to protect a criminal President. The US Senate has just two jobs: stop legislation and pack the federal courts. The Treasury Department's IRS is flat out thumbing their noses at the LAW.

The House, it seems to me, is powerless in all of this. We can talk about subpoenas, but who enforces them? The packed courts? The Justice Department? The Sergeant At Arms? The Capitol Policeman working the metal detector at the Capitol? We can pass legislation, but it goes to the Legislative Graveyard, the Senate, where nothing happens.

Meanwhile, speaking of the Soviets, the government relaxed sanctions on Oleg Derepaska so he can come to KENTUCKY to open a new business. No doubt Turtle and Paul are thrilled.


And all of this is IN PLAIN SIGHT.

1. Yup, same shit I've been screaming bloody murder about and, finally, DU is just as angry

 

and concerned about the coup as I am. And the lack of action by our leaders is also now becoming mainstream, as well as a DU realization.

I had a post hidden for saying as much.

2. But it's the Trumps

As nefarious as they are, they're bound to fuck it all up. Their coverup is barely holding together.

4. Yeah, like the Mob

You can't miss a payment, and you have to pay more. Putin has stolen all he can from the people, now they will try to steal ours.

I predict, if Trump is re-elected he starts to hit SS disability, regular social security with a drop of 20 percent. His voters will think what. They don't realize that he always hated them and thinks they are fools.

Or, see Russia.

6. Eek. You are right.

If he is elected, there is nothing to constrain him.

7. The "in plain sight" is key.

As hard as it is, I see no way out but educating people (which people hate).

Our plate is very full.

8. But, I'm not going down without a fight.

I know it looks bleak, but we have to continue challenging Trump and his republican lackeys in every way we can.

10. Barr just crapped on the rule of law, and the justice system.

Now he'll be used by trump as a weapon to go after anyone who opposes him, or presents a threat exposing them. I don't believe anything Barr says or claims , and is a willing participant in the cover up , conspiracy, and the obstruction we all saw happening. Barr must be compromised or pretty dam stupid for doing this. Barr should go to prison for this.

11. It's difficult to seperate from normal GOP dismantling

Putin and Gop have similar intentions:Tear down government institutions. Looks like they are getting lots of help though.

12. For those of us old enough to remember, it surely does

I'll only be dipping in and out today instead of being glued to the news. I have my almost-8 yo grandson here for only a few more hours then have to ferry him home.

15. Yes. We are SO Soviet now.

It is the ultimate refuge if those who would rule from a minority position. Totalitarian.
