There are so many topics I’d like to offer my insight on, but so little time! So every once in a while I like to respond to a number of articles that I couldn’t necessarily devote an entire daily blog to on an article by article basis.
Welcome to my second edition of “MrEricksonRules’ headline buffet line!”

“Imprisoning Bill Barr is [the] left’s new rallying cry: ‘Have him locked up!’”
By Brooke Singman of Fox News.
“The battle between congressional Democrats and the Justice Department over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report has reached new levels of vitriol, as some on the left call for Attorney General Bill Barr to be physically dragged in to testify or even locked up for defying congressional subpoenas.”
“The demands have escalated after the attorney general refused to appear before the House Judiciary Committee last week amid disagreements over the format of the hearing.”
“Though he testified a day earlier on the Senate side, Democrats on the committee still want to bring in the DOJ leader to answer questions on the conclusion of Mueller’s investigation. Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., also imposed a Monday morning deadline for Barr to turn over the full, unredacted Mueller report and additional files — a deadline the DOJ apparently missed, prompting Nadler to schedule a Wednesday vote on contempt proceedings against Barr.”
Everything that William Barr has done up this point is completely within in rights and responsibilities as Attorney General.
What we have on the democrats’ side is a bunch of grandstanding, and now desperation, as they learned that Mr. Barr was looking into what really happened regarding Russian collusion, and what really happened regarding spying on Americans, and what really happened that caused this fraudulent investigation to be launched in the first place.
Their main goal now is to discredit him, silence him, and preferably have him resign or be removed from office. Anything but allow him to drag their “swampy” friends out into the sunlight.
‘“He [Attorney General Barr] lied to Congress. And if anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime,’ Pelosi told reporters. ‘Nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States. Not the attorney general.’”
Apparently Mrs. Pelosi is an exception to that rule…, as she lies ALL of the time to Congress, to us, to basically anyone within earshot of her.
“Pelosi’s public comments came after she, according to Politico, told Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., during a private caucus meeting Thursday: ‘We saw [Barr] commit a crime when he answered your question.’”
“However, according to both the Post and the Justice Department, Mueller made clear that he did not feel that Barr’s summary was inaccurate. Instead, Mueller told Barr that media coverage of the letter had “misinterpreted” the results of the probe concerning obstruction of justice.”
We all know it doesn’t matter to the democrats what anyone actually says…, the only thing that matters is what they want us to hear.
“NPR reporter refers to Barr summary in same terms as FDR describing attack on Pearl Harbor.”
By Anna Hopkins of Fox News
“The Department of Justice reporter for NPR [National Public Radio] referred to the date of Attorney General Barr’s summary of the Mueller report as ‘a date that will live … in infamy,’ a phrase many associate with President Franklin Roosevelt’s 1941 speech following the Pearl Harbor attack.”
“NPR’s Carrie Johnson made the comment during the NPR Politics podcast last Wednesday while discussing Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, during which he answered questions about the summary he gave of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.”
NPR…, another arm of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”
Aren’t you be a tad dramatic there Ms. Johnson?
“A day that will live in infamy?”
How about the day that people in our government were contemplating a coup against President Trump? How about that day?
How about the day the DOJ and the FBI decided they were going to falsify testimony to the FISA court and spy on the Trump campaign? How about that day?
How about the day that the FBI overstepped its bounds and declared Hillary did not break any laws, regarding obstructing justice by destroying her server and then deleting over 33,00 emails, because that was not her “intent.” How about that day?
You’re pathetic, Carrie Johnson. You’re just a tool to be used by the liberal propaganda machine. You’re no journalist, and you’re no reporter.
You’re a fool.
“Why are the House Democrats out to get Attorney General Barr?”
By Representative Andy Biggs for Fox News
“Democrats in Congress are so worried that the American people will find out what is NOT in the Mueller report that they will say and do almost anything. The report exposes their false assertions that President Trump cooperated with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election. They will resort to embarrassing stunts like bringing fast food chicken buckets into congressional hearings. And, they will attempt to destroy the reputation of Attorney General William Barr simply because he is the messenger who released the Mueller report to the public.”
“Consider that House Democrat leaders are claiming Barr lied about … what? They are upset because he wrote a memo iterating the major findings in the Mueller report. They castigated Barr for the few weeks it took for him to make legally required redactions in the Mueller report before he could publicly release the report. Turns out Barr’s initial summary was accurate. And, we have a special counsel report that is available for public viewing with very few redactions, proving that Democrats weren’t telling the truth for over two years.”
“The Democrats must also be troubled that the inspector general will soon be releasing his report regarding the findings of his investigation into the abuse of power, which includes obtaining secret warrants to spy on the Trump campaign under the Obama administration. They dare not let go of their attack on the president and anyone who works with him, knowing that the IG report will likely contain damaging revelations of the Democrat National Committee and the Clinton presidential campaign working with Russians to unleash the police apparatus under President Obama to spy on the Trump campaign for political purposes.”
The democrats are counting on the complicit “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” to do their part and downplay or ignore any potentially damaging evidence that turns up.
They, in turn, will just continue to deny, deny, deny, and attempt to discredit William Barr, and anyone else that may need to be silenced.

“Dem state lawmaker records himself harassing pro-life woman outside Planned Parenthood”
By Caleb Parke of Fox News
“PA [Pennsylvania] State Representative Brian Sims recorded himself harassing a pro-life woman peacefully protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Sims’ Philadelphia district.”
“A Pennsylvania Democratic state representative went on an eight-minute rant, verbally harassing an elderly woman protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.”
“Brian Sims recorded a woman outside Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, which is in his district, telling her to pray at home, calling her an ‘old white lady’ and lecturing her about her Christian beliefs on the Periscope app.”
‘“Push back against Planned Parenthood protestors, PLEASE!’ Sims wrote on Twitter Thursday. ‘They prey on young women, they use white privilege, & shame. They’re racist, classist, bigots who NEED & DESERVE our righteous opposition. Push back, please!’”
So here we have another obvious example of double standards exhibited by the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake new media.”
Here we have a politician no less, harassing an elderly citizen, who is doing everything within her rights as a citizen to do.
He brings her race into play, and then has the nerve to later call her a racist!
He also attacks her religion, which is okay to do, as long as it’s Christianity. God forbid he would attack a Muslim!!! Then we would really have a problem here!
The level of confusion exhibited by these clowns is just so impressive.
“Joy Behar slams ‘unpatriotic’ Trump, says GOP supporters should remove ‘those flag pins.’”
By Brian Flood for Fox News
‘“The View’ co-host Joy [less] Behar said on Monday that Republicans who support President Trump should take off ‘those flag pins’ because the president’s behavior regarding Russian meddling is ‘unpatriotic.’”
‘“It isn’t just that. Let’s talk about, you know, the fact that he met with Putin for 90 minutes… and never once brought up the fact that Russia, Russia interfered in our election,’ Behar said.
These libs just throw this stuff around like they know what they’re talking about.
How exactly did the Russians “interfere” with our elections? They sure interfered far less than our own FBI and DOJ! And I don’t hear her crying about James Comey or Loretta Lynch though!
That’s because Joy “less” Behar has no idea what she is talking about. She is just a part of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”
“Behar continued: ‘I said last week I don’t want to see any of those flag pins anymore on Republicans who don’t stand up against this guy for Russian meddling, and other things that he’s done. It seems as though he’s unpatriotic.’”
Joy “less” Behar is so far off base here, it’s hard to know how to respond. So I guess I won’t.
“You can’t argue with crazy” is something my wife says all of the time.
And she’s right.
So I won’t.
“Behar has attacked Trump and his supporters on a regular basis, mocking everything from Mike Pence’s Christian faith to women who support Trump. She immediately backtracked last September after saying ‘God forbid President Trump lives another 20 years.’”
What a peach.
