Bill Barr Brought His B.S. to St. Louis

https://m.riverfronttimes.com/newsblog/2020/10/16/barr-brought-his-bs-to-st-louis

U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr is something of a rare sight these days, but on Thursday he swept into a conference room in St. Louis' federal courthouse to helm a painfully brief press conference on "Operation Legend" and while Barr and the assembled police officials touted the program as successful, the details they unveiled fail to provide a compelling case that federal intervention has actually changed much about a historically violent summer in St. Louis.

"The first duty of government is to protect the safety of its citizens," Barr told the reporters. "That is primarily a state and local responsibility, but the federal government can make a contribution primarily in the area of guns and gangs and drugs.

Barr slithered out from under his rock on Thursday??? Anyone know if this is true?

3. I never heard a word about anything these idiots did ... I surely would have on the local news but

I haven't heard nothing. And you know that they would have been flooding the airwaves if they had success of any kind...

A bunch of malarkey...as usual.

The only thing I've heard was the two gun toting idiots (they pulled guns on peaceful protesters walking through their neighborhood (and they were on the sidewalk too)).

Bill Barr appeared for all of 10 minutes in St. Louis on Thursday (and took no questions) but it was enough time for him to take credit for a *49% drop* in city homicides, a thing that very much did not happen.

9. I read he was going somewhere...

looks like it was a PR trip, to tell lies about "Operation Legend" to make it appear successful.

15. I'm glad there was a photo so I could see...

Whether he's losing weight or looking less than his usually ghoulish doughboy appearance. It's a tell.

I don't know about elsewhere but winter showed up this morning, we had about a week of fall. Still a lot of leaves on the trees, my flowers were still thriving but we got about 8" of snow today, about 6" on the ground after melting and the high was +32F. Looks like it will be cold and snow all weekend so the ground will get frozen for a few inches down and that'll take out anything that doesn't winter well.

I'm having a solemn day. But I'm thankful that I made sure I got all the veges, herbs and seeds in yesterday.

16. Glad you got everything in before weather hit!

Did you notice weight loss?

Where are you that it is already so cold & snowy?

But if he's sick and taking a lot of meds for it, he'll start losing weight.

I'm in western Montana, the mountainous part. There's this chunnel of precip and cold passing through for the next several days.

21. Must be gorgeous there!

Seems early for winter weather doesn't it?

I'm glad you are prepared, though! Stay warm!

22. It's breath-takingly so.

Any time of year, good or harsh weather, you just have to be able to bend like the trees with the resolve of a mountain for it to be survivable. Not really early for winter. We usually to get snow around now or by the end of October, it's just that it comes so suddenly, completely changing the game plan for daily functions overnight. It will only take a few minutes but I have to fetch some outerwear from the garage.

Now that it's the next day, I see there will be more shoveling to be done.

20. I don't trust him, or the horse he rode in on, for one minute.

I think the republicans are still planning some sort of sabotage of the election, and they're getting their ducks in a row.

I hope they fail miserably, like they fail daily at just about everything. Everything trump touches dies, and I hope their little conspiracy dies as publicly and nastily as anything he's ever done.
