AG Barr on Justice:
Attorney General William Barr, the top U.S. law enforcement officer, said in a recent interview that he understands the appeal of the vigilante justice portrayed in films like “Dirty Harry” and “Death Wish.”
“I believe a sense of justice is hardwired into human beings,” Barr said in an interview on Crime Story podcast. “Don’t ask me why, but it is there and it’s satisfying to see justice done.”
Barr speculated that films like “Dirty Harry” (1971), which starred Clint Eastwood as a detective who takes the law into his own hands, resonated with the American public’s impatience with the courts.
“Americans have tended recently to view [justice] more as a process, as if the criminal justice process is justice, and it isn’t,” Barr said. “It’s a process that’s supposed to achieve justice, but very frequently doesn’t. As we were talking earlier, that’s the theme in the ‘Dirty Harry’ movies and so forth.”
Eastwood’s character in “Dirty Harry” is hamstrung by legal restrictions in his attempt to arrest a murderer. In its final scene the officer ignores what Barr might call the formal “process,” shoots the killer in defiance of the law and throws his police badge away.
“There’s that scene in ‘Dirty Harry’ where I think the guy has kidnapped somebody who is running out of oxygen, has a few minutes to live. Dirty Harry asks, ‘Where is she?’ And the other guy smirks at him and he shoots him in the leg or something and the guy tells him where it is,” Barr added. “I say, now, was that an unjust or morally repellent act? Is the reason that the audience applauds when that happens because the audience is morally bankrupt? Or is there something else going on there? So I think these are interesting issues.”
Barr credited “the strategy of incapacitation” — long prison sentences for repeat criminals — for the decline in crime in the U.S. since its peak in the early 1990s. “From that time forward, the American prison population steadily increased to where it is today and the crime rate has gone down, and been halved in that period,” he said.
The attorney general also singled out the 1974 film “Death Wish,” in which Charles Bronson plays an urban vigilante who hunts down violent criminals after his wife is murdered.
“‘Death Wish,’ yeah,” Barr said. “That kind of thing that gives people a sense of satisfaction when they see it. There are a lot of issues that come up even today in fighting terrorism and other things where these issues are pitted against each other.”
In case you have been relying on Snopes or Politifact - Here is what you need to know:
The attached spreadsheet (at the link below) contains 90+ anti conservative/Republican stories the major media got wrong.
It includes dates, links to original or Wayback articles, Snopes and Politifact rating, etc.
67 of the wrong articles come from Sharyl Atkkisson’s list, 23 are from Timothy Zebel’s book “The Fake News Epidemic”.
Out of these 90 articles Snopes rated only 4 as FALSE,
Out of the 90 articles Politifact rated only 3 as false.
From our study Snopes had a 4% success rate. They missed 96% of the major fake news Russia-Collusion reports.
Politifact did even worse scoring a 3% success rate. They missed 97% of the the anti-Trump Russia-Collusion fake news stories.
Remember this next time you hear the liberal media quote one of these two far left publishers.
More strange things have emerged from the Epstein Story:
An MD further analyzed the photos of Epstein at the hospital and concluded that the “Epstein" never actually made it from the emergency bay into the hospital. It was just a photo-op.
"I can prove that the second picture is NOT inside the hospital. It is in the ambulance bay outside. The body in the second picture did not make it inside the hospital building.
Here is the proof: the wall shown in the picture is an OUTSIDE wall, in the ambulance bay. You have to go back to 2011 on street view to confirm but shows the related sign, red boards and pipes.
This means that either:
(1) the "paramedics" removed the resuscitation equipment (ambu-bag +/- ET tube) on their own cognizance and declared him dead for the photo, without ever entering the building (not a chance) OR
(2) the ambu-bag/ET tube was placed in the ambulance bay, so they paused in an ambulance bay, with a body that is supposed to look dead, to place an ET tube and ambu-bag, instead of running into the hospital to get help from the medical team. (not a chance)
So the only explanation that makes ANY logical sense, now that we have established that the second picture is in the ambulance bay, is:
EPSTEIN'S BODY NEVER MADE IT INTO THE HOSPITAL AND WILLIAM FARRINGTON WAS INVOLVED IN THE STAGED RESUSCITATION"
Furthermore, a strange woman spent hours in the lawyer meeting rooms for many days with Epstein. She did not have papers, so it is unlikely she was a lawyer. Why was this? The most likely explanation was that she was there as an excuse for Epstein to be in a safe place away from his cell and she was in effect a bodyguard.
Then the strange thing of all - Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s partner in crime, was spotted reading a book at an In and Out Burger in Universal City near Hollywood. It was put out as if it were a lucky paparazzi who spotted her. However once people studied the photo it became very clear it was purposefully set up:
There are two drinks and the phone is on the other side of the table.
This is clearly an arranged photo shoot with the photographer
No straws in the drinks in either pic. One's a shake, the green one. Red cups are drinks and green shakes.
Ah, if you look very closely, that phone near the front of the table isn't hers, because hers is tucked underneath the book she's reading. That means, along with the two cups, that she was with someone, and not alone as we have been told. The phone nearest is also mid-text. Also, where's the dog mentioned in the article?
There had to be some time lapse between the first pic and the second because there is a different set of people in the table behind her. But in both the pictures, the same amount of food is left on her tray and neither drink has a straw in it or moved as if she would have at least had a sip. She was definitely not there to have lunch.
One thing that has bothered me about this from the "release" of the pic...I am an absolute book worm and I have eaten on many occasions in a "fast-food" restaurant. I have never and I do not recall ever seeing someone reading in "fast-food" / "In-&-out" restaurant. They even design (color schemes, furnishings) these places for a quick turnover. This just to provide more along the line it was a total set up...no doubt.
She was spotted, and seems to conveniently pose at the restaurant while reading 'The Book of Honor: The Secret Lives and Deaths of CIA Operatives' https://nypost.com/2019/08/15/jeffrey-epsteins-gal-pal-ghislaine-maxwell-spotted-at-in-n-out-burger-in-first-photos-since-his-death/
but even more interesting is someone on gab quickly found out that there is a review from the book posted today from 'G. Maxwell' that reads....
"A good friend of mine died recently under very tragic circumstances. Some of us saw it coming for quite a while but it was still a huge shock when it finally happened. I picked up this book at the advice of a friend and absolutely couldn't put it down. I'd read it walking the dog, getting fast food, or even just lounging around the house. It helped me realized that my friend really believed in something, and that giving your life for the CIA, NSA, FBI, Mossad, or other intelligence agency is truly a higher calling and not something to mourn. A wholehearted recommendation."
She literally, in 2016, reviewed a book of fiction about trafficking and sex slavery:
"This is a dark and sometimes painful study of twisted desire and human trafficing. Both the main characters seem to revel in the painful aspects of sex with plenty of blood shed during lovemaking. The scenes of sex slavery and the kidnapping rings are very graphic and difficult to read at times but Winter keeps you enthralled if horrified."
Another reader says of that book "If you don't like dark, don't read these books. If your mind cannot handle torture and abuse, don't read these books".
Novels about spy couples, books on bdsm, one on a girl chasing a billionaire and what appears to be a review left by Epstein him self.
The New York City medical examiner’s office ruled on Friday that accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide by hanging last week.
The Medical Examiner looked at the jail videos provided to her and, not seeing anyone entering the cell from the hallway from the videos, concluded that Epstein killed himself - even though it didn’t fit very well with the evidence. How hard is it to fake a continually empty hallway? Not that hard. Not hard at all for intelligence agencies.
Was he cheerful because he expected to be out soon?:
Epstein’s optimism behind bars — expressed during daily visits with his lawyers that lasted up to 12 hours each — was so great that it struck some of those around him as ‘delusional,'” the Post reported, citing an unnamed source familiar with Epstein’s case.
“‘He thought he was going to win the double-jeopardy motion’ that his defense lawyers were planning to file in connection with his 2008 Florida prostitution conviction, the source said,” according to the Post. Epstein also “had hope of getting bail on appeal,” according to the source.
And that’s not all.
“What he really wanted to do was get bail so he could cooperate,” the source said, adding that Epstein was “delusional” for thinking “he was going to get the same deal he got in Florida.”
“Every day he was very positive and the night before he was real positive,” the source told the Post. “He was in great spirits the night before.”
In fact, Epstein reportedly told one his lawyers on Friday that he would see him again soon.
“He was like, ‘I’ll see you Sunday,'” the source told the Post.
Another insight from an Anon:
It is very reasonable that Epstein, in the blackmail business, had evidence with a Dead Man’s Switch set to go off if he was demised etc..
"Once you understand this, it’s not difficult to realize that kidnapping and torturing Jeffrey Epstein would give you control over the dead man’s switch. Under duress, Epstein could either be forced to prevent the release of the files, or to trigger their release, depending on what the kidnapping party wants to see happen.
The fact that no bombshell video files or other evidence hasn’t yet been publicly released is very nearly proof that Epstein is still alive. In fact, it’s strong evidence that Epstein is being allowed to (or forced to) reset the countdown triggers on the dead man switches."
Somebody came and spirited the body away. That’s one less mystery…or just more?:
The person who claimed Epstein's body was described only as an "Epstein associate."
After Epstein was arrested last month on charges of sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors, his attorneys asked U.S. District Judge Richard Berman to allow Epstein to post bond secured by a mortgage on his home in Manhattan.
According to court documents, they said the bond would have been co-secured by his brother, Mark Epstein, and a friend identified as David Mitchell.
One thing that was released was Epstein’s little black book, without the redactions that were previously there:
The entire little black book without redactions:
Being in the book doesn't incriminate anyone, but it does suggest areas of inquiry...
Other weird things:
(Note: Red shoes have been a recurring theme throughout the perverted cabal with them being seen in red shoes, and horrible paintings of tortured children in red shoes. It has been a sign of membership revealed throughout the investigations of Pizzagate etc.)
One of Bill Clinton’s alleged ex-lovers, former Miss Arkansas Sally Miller, claimed that he would regularly jump into her frilly black nightgown and dance around while playing the sax as they were having their illicit affair.
Miller confirmed rumors that Hillary is a lesbian, and that the marriage between Bill and she has been ruse to fuel each other’s ruthless political ambitions all these years.
“… Bill didn’t mind telling me that Hillary doesn’t like sex,” Miller said. “I take him at his word and he told me she liked females more than men. She was the child of a more progressive community. She was exposed to all the liberals, she was a flower child.”
“Hillary does drugs too, that’s the only time that she would entertain the idea – again, this is what Bill told me,” she added.
While it may have been easy to discount Miller’s claims as salacious innuendo meant to sell books, the painting of Clinton uncovered on the late Epstein’s property adds a new air of credibility to Miller’s allegations.
