I wonder if even Barr is willing to go that far.

I keep telling you people, when he gets done destroying the first amendment, he's going to move right down the list.

Yes, of course he is.

Of course he is. He will launch a Crusade against the Albigensians and let god sort them out.

What about his conduct suggests that he won't?

Hey Trump,
You and Mitch McConnell are the anarchists. Follow America's laws and respect the first amendment or go back to Russia.

What about the unfunny cartoonists?  Mallard Fillmore, your day of reckoning is at hand.

EvilEgg: I wonder if even Barr is willing to go that far.


I mean.  Have you seen even the barest hint of an indication that he won't?

People are saying that Trump raped and murdered a girl in 1997. People are saying it. They come up to me and say "Sir, I'm very concerned about Trump raping and murdering that girl" and I agree, it's very concerning.

What about this deserves the "dumbass" tag? Have "obvious" and "scary" already been rounded up?

It is not unreasonable at all to think it won't happen. If you disagree, then you haven't been paying attention.

When Trump loses, I fully expect the next DOJ to prosecute the current administration (including Barr), so......
 
2020-08-31 4:39:48 PM  
He pushed the bounds on it after 2016 and got right wing push back. The right wing has subsequently acquiesced to everything else and refused to hold him accountable. So yes, it absolutely will happen.

If he isn't, he will be dropped by the wayside like Jeff Sessions, and someone else will be found who will do what they are told.

bill keane needs to be dug up and killed again for his passive aggressive proselytizations in print.

I should add that journalists will be the first ones he'll go after.

Barack Obama would be empowered to prosecute Trump, if Trump had Barr mutilate the Constitution.

That ought to slow Trump down long enough so that we Farkers can found Farkistan in Lebanon.

And if they do not, then they are just as guilty

I think Scary is a more appropriate tag. Just sayin'...

I'm going to just leave this here as a warning-her crime was circulating satirical leaflets:

Absolutely.

He'll come after Fark eventually too.

Imagine the filters.

What makes you think he wouldn't?

Has he had any corrective action taken against him?

Has he suffered consequences for literally anything hes done as AG?

I will bet every single penny I have and every possession I own, including the cloths on my back, that there will be immediate racial violence if Trump is reelected.

Within minutes of his first political rally we saw increased verbal and physical attacks against POC. Trump not only ran Nixon's racist Southern Strategy  to a T, he amplified it by giving White Supremacists, racists, bigots a platform and encouraging violence.

Fast forward to today and we see that these people still supporting Trump are nothing but domestic terrorists who want an all white America. They don't care how much Trump lies, it doesn't matter, these scum crawled out of the woodwork to support a White Supremacist leader and they feel more empowered now than ever. They are deliberately targeting peaceful protests to rally at. If you're unfamiliar with history, a German party in the late 1930's used these same exact tactics.

The Republican party needs to be abolished and legally banned in this country.

Because I was Ben Garrison.

Why wait for the second term? If the polls don't tighten enough I fully expect Trump or Barr will announce opening an investigation of Biden by October.

If Trump wins it's a free pass for him to do whatever he wants.

"The Justice Department is certainly under the control of the president. It is part of the executive branch, so it is certainly legal for the president to dictate to the Justice Department how it should operate or what its priorities should be"

Solution: Move the Justice Department from the Executive to the Judiciary branch of the government.

It is clear that for over 200 years Presidents have relied on an honor system with regards to using the Justice Department as their personal goon squad. It was a line no one wanted to cross. But this President is crossing it, thereby making it easier for future Presidents to cross it. The honor system is no longer being honored. Trump broke it, so now nobody gets it.

Congress needs to subvert the October Surprise by starting an investigation now, so it will be concluded by October.

Have faith, Trumpy. If you win the election, we'll be gunning for you as well.
 
2020-08-31 5:26:22 PM  
I dunno.

Trump is kind of lazy.

I doubt he will do much in a theoretical second term he hasn't already done in his first.

/let's just vote him out so we don't have to find out

Did my part - reported that tweet. Yeah, I know, it's a microscopic but every drop of water contributes to the tidal wave...

Make no mistake. If Bonespurs is reelected it's going to be retribution city.

Well, in spite of being in court more than anyone on Earth, he loses about 99% of his cases.  Because he never gives his lawyers anything to work with.
