Truth and Lies

This brief video addresses questions that continue to stump me. Will we ever get it back? Whatever one’s view of Barack Obama, one cannot refute the flagrant juxtapositions between the values the current Republican Party professes and the real life disdain for those same values.

President Barack Obama to Republican supporters of Donald Trump.

It’s time to stop the White House’s frontal assault on the equality among the three branches of federal government defined under the U.S. Constitution. Time for us, the American people, to tell those in Congress to do what Congress is supposed to do. Contempt of Congress is partisan. It is contempt for the institution itself, and for the Constitution that establishes and protects the American experiment under the rule of law. It’s time for boldness.

Anyone who witnessed Attorney General Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee saw and heard the AG’s disdain for truth-telling. He lied. The next day he refused to appear before the House Committee. This is not time for patience. It’s time for Congress to act swiftly and boldly with arrests for contempt of Congress.

  1. The AG is more dangerous, it seems to me, than 45. He articulated some truly *flagrantly* anti-Constitutional positions in his testimony before the Senate, and he’s the AG.

      • Barr’s actions and interpretations of law are consistent. They ignore the Constitution and defy the oath of office. I had hoped, against hope, that he was a better man than that. The American Bar (no pun intended) Association should call him out and revoke his membership.
