You All Know I Have High Hopes For Barr, But ...

I hadda laugh out loud at this blog at Zerohedge:

Barr Ends All Conspiracy Theories Forever By Saying Epstein Died Via A Series Of Coincidences

The author goes is referring to Barr's recent remark:

“I can understand people who immediately, whose minds went to sort of the worst-case scenario because it was a perfect storm of screw-ups,”

and then proceeds to go down a bullet list of coincidences--10 bullet points long.

Just a few excerpts:

Well if reporting that he’s reviewed footage which we were previously told didn’t exist isn’t enough to dampen those kooky conspiracy theories, I don’t know what is.
So there you have it. The US government says that an intelligence asset with damning information on many powerful individuals did in fact kill himself due to an admittedly bizarre and wildly unlikely series of strange coincidences. I for one have no more questions. Checkmate, conspiracy theorists.
     “Mr. Epstein’s death in August at a federal detention center in Manhattan set off a rash of unfounded conspiracy theories on social media that were picked up and repeated by high-profile figures, including Mayor Bill de Blasio and former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani. No matter their ideology, the refrain of the theories was the same: Something did not add up,” says The New York Times in its report Barr’s statements.
Couldn’t have said it better myself. It’s a completely unfounded conspiracy theory to believe that someone with ties to powerful institutions and individuals might be murdered in a way that was made to look like a suicide. We don’t live in a world where opaque organizations do evil things in secret, we live in a world where the government is always our friend and the TV would never lie to us. I’m glad these comments made by Barr (whose father in another strange coincidence gave Epstein his first job) have at long last struck a fatal blow to anyone who would doubt the beneficent hand of our beloved institutions.

Actually, I've read that those original stories that Barr's dad gave Epstein his first job aren't true.


  1. Why would Barr tell the NYT what he knows? So they could use that info to fuel an insurrection against him? He wouldn't. And he didn't take the bait.
    The world is a messy place. You clean up what you must. But there's no point in wading into every toxic swamp.

  2. If I had said those things, I’d have been thought to be speaking with my tongue planted in my cheek. That I was being sarcastic. I wonder….

  3. >Barr told AP on Thursday.<

    Why would you tell the enemy what your honest appraisal is?
