Really. He said that. Or something so close to that as to be indistinguishable.
I've always wondered who's behind sundance. Lately I've been thinking it's people associated with Jim DeMint.
this blog develops the idea that a theory of man in history can be worked out around the theme that man's self expression in culture and society is motivated by the desire to find meaning in man's existence. i proceed by summarizing seminal works that provide insights into the dynamics of this process, with the view that the culmination of this exploration was reached with god's self revelation in jesus. i'll hopefully also explore the developments that followed this event.

Sundance: All Barr Wants Is A Gig On CNN

Mark, can you clarify this analogy with De Mint?ReplyDelete
Does this relate to his conduct at Heritage, the Citizens for Self-Governance, or what?
It's just a gut feeling. If you have a better handle on it, feel free to speculate.Delete
I simply think that to say something that idiotic, that divorced from reality, requires some sort of ideological bias.Delete
I meant De Mint's motives, e.g. vs. Barr.Delete
Is De Mint a foe of the Unitary Executive?
I don't think that factors in. I guess what I had in mind is that Barr seems to have good relations with the Senate majority.Delete
OK, but why would that bug De Mint so much?Delete
That was his whole thing--flipping the Senate to his way of thinking.Delete
I never mentioned this because it wasn't germane, but I became aware of Sundance during the Zimmerman trial. I immediately had a good feeling about him because I also saw this event as a modern-day lynch mob to convict Zimmerman in the press and in the town square. While I always try to learn facts before I reach a conclusion, the energy seemed to be to convict Zimmerman immediately.ReplyDelete
Whether Sundance is right or wrong in his analysis of Mark O'Mara, I don't know. I think that he is dead wrong about Bill Barr. He (Sundance) could know more than I do.
Until I am see evidence to change my mind, I am sticking to my impression that Bill Barr is a man of action, and of principle.
Jeff Carlson, Brian Cates, Dan Bongino and others have all had skirmishes with Sundance. I don't want to unfairly judge him. I advise taking a lot of what he says with a grain of salt.
It takes a lot of guts to take on the Swamp. The Swamp plays for all the marbles.
When SD tried to compare what happened in this matter to the Zimmerman case, he lost me. And when it comes to stature, Bill Barr is miles above Mark O’Mara, who was just another slick lawyer in my book. This is why I don’t do pundits, gurus, whatever you call them. I wandered through a thread or two over there and found dissent (with SD). I believe that’s a healthy sign.ReplyDelete
No one wants this to drag on forever, but this may be one of the most complex plots in at least modern history. Deep and wide - so wide that it reached into foreign countries on several continents. And much of the evidence was held hostage for two+ years during the Weissman/Mueller fiasco. I have seen no reason to doubt Barr and Durham. And I’m not into pitchforks. Neither are the laptop commandos who feel better when they rattle them about...
That second paragraph--bingo!Delete
After seeing this Lawfare group in action for 3 years, I must say I am not impressed with their abilities.Delete
It's easy to seem impressive with full weight of the federal government behind you. Barr left the government and became a superstar in private practice. I guarantee you, he's not overawed by these guys.Delete
Berke is a bully. Has one volume setting: Loud. Goldman is callow. His assuredness when on script disintegrated when he was under attack. And he looked then like something from the crypt. Pallor. Almost cringing.Delete
Lawfare’s founder and chief honcho Ben Wittes is not a lawyer. BFF of Comey, he is having a field day shepherding his merry band of refugee lawyers/prosecutors through this Lawfare exercise. His time will come.
I'd love to see that.Delete
I stopped paying any attention to Sundance/CTH when he came out with utterly ludicrous claim regarding Nellie Ohr and her ham radio, secretly communicating with Christopher Steele in Britain or Russia.ReplyDelete
It takes about ten minutes to google up the FCC regs applicable to Ohr's license; it can't be used for HF voice (other than on 10m, which isn't going to get trans-Atlantic range.) She'd be limited to CW, and I don't see her banging away on a telegraph key in Morse plotting to take down a presidential campaign.
He completely blew it, so I don't trust anything he, or similar websites publish, which appear to be designed more for ad revenue click bait than news accuracy, IMHO.
Sundance tends to get a lot right or close to right, but can make leaps of logic that do not make sense.Delete
What's ironic is his use of "Tick Tock" to deride the sensationalistic nature of many right news/opinion folks like Hannity, but Sundance is the worst of them all whipping up his followers into a frenzy with the result to be major letdowns.
Oh, he apparently has a personal beef with Hannity and either sock puppets negative replies that pop up time to time on posts with no relation to Hannity and/or tacitly supports those that do this.
Oh, and if you call him out, the wrath of the masses follow, with banning.
Yeah, I pointed out one of those leaps of logic earlier yesterday when he did an excellent explanation of the corruption of the SSCI and RR's DoJ, but then jumped to: DoJ is forever compromised. Doesn't make any sense.Delete
Don't get me wrong, he, supposedly a non-journalist with tenacity, an eye for minutiae, and the use of crowd sourcing, had this overthrow attemp snuffed out from the start. Moreover, he had the major actions and players mostly correct.Delete
I assume he has good "sources," meaning, people who speak through him. Senate/House staffers would be one guess.Delete
I rarely watch Hannity and only use CTH for fact verification. If they were ever both in the same room at the same time even the bacteria would suffocate, their egos suck up so much oxygen.Delete
Check out his post on the 9th when Report dropped. He's arguing that bc the OIG redacted the FISA app dates it means his 2yr long theory of FRADULENT FISA DOCS being submitted to the SSCI (as part of a "leak-tracer" operation) is vindicated.Delete
In reality, the goddamn dates have been public for about a year, and OIG just un-redacted them this morning. The guy is huckster.
Also, the guy is a Plagarizer. I have documented proof. Why do you think he has a falling out with every single other researcher on Twitter?
Skip ahead to 18:45: the questioner asks Barr why the Obama AG is not looking into this matter -ReplyDelete
