We know James Comey and John Brennan should be arrested for trying to overthrow an American President.

Holder wrote an op-ed published Wednesday night by the Washington Post calling current Attorney General William Barr “unfit” to serve as attorney general. The threat to Durham iss buried in the op-ed, but jumps out like a dagger thrust from the dark.
…As a former line prosecutor, U.S. attorney and judge, I found it alarming to hear Barr comment on an ongoing investigation, led by John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, into the origins of the Russia probe. And as someone who spent six years in the office Barr now occupies, it was infuriating to watch him publicly undermine an independent inspector general report — based on an exhaustive review of the FBI’s conduct — using partisan talking points bearing no resemblance to the facts his own department has uncovered.
When appropriate and justified, it is the attorney general’s duty to support Justice Department components, ensure their integrity and insulate them from political pressures. His or her ultimate loyalty is not to the president personally, nor even to the executive branch, but to the people — and the Constitution — of the United States.
Career public servants at every level of the Justice Department understand this — as do leaders such as FBI Director Christopher A. Wray and Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Their fidelity to the law and their conduct under pressure are a credit to them and the institutions they serve.
Others, like Durham, are being tested by this moment. I’ve been proud to know John for at least a decade, but I was troubled by his unusual statement disputing the inspector general’s findings. Good reputations are hard-won in the legal profession, but they are fragile; anyone in Durham’s shoes would do well to remember that, in dealing with this administration, many reputations have been irrevocably lost.
This is certainly true of Barr, who was until recently a widely respected lawyer. I and many other Justice veterans were hopeful that he would serve as a responsible steward of the department and a protector of the rule of law.
Holder closes with his statement that Barr is ‘unfit’. His case is totally based on policy differences and his claimed understanding of the nature of the job, which is odd considering Holder once called himself Obama’s “wingman” when he served as his attorney general and called Obama “my boy”: “I’m still the President’s wing-man, so I’m there with my boy.”
Virtually since the moment he took office, though, Barr’s words and actions have been fundamentally inconsistent with his duty to the Constitution. Which is why I now fear that his conduct — running political interference for an increasingly lawless president — will wreak lasting damage.
The American people deserve an attorney general who serves their interests, leads the Justice Department with integrity and can be entrusted to pursue the facts and the law, even — and especially — when they are politically inconvenient and inconsistent with the personal interests of the president who appointed him. William Barr has proved he is incapable of serving as such an attorney general. He is unfit to lead the Justice Department.
Barr, 69, is serving as attorney general a second time–the first during the presidency of George H.W. Bush. Barr is at the peak of his profession and is immune to Holder’s criticism.
Durham, on the other hand, while also Barr’s age, has been a career assistant U.S. attorney who was promoted by President Trump to U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut in 2017 after 35 years of service there. Holder’s message to Durham is clear, play ball or face ruin.
Durham’s statement that so “troubled” Holder:
“I have the utmost respect for the mission of the Office of Inspector General and the comprehensive work that went into the report prepared by Mr. Horowitz and his staff. However, our investigation is not limited to developing information from within component parts of the Justice Department. Our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S. Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened.”
Why would Holder find that statement so troubling that he would send a warning to Durham via the Washington Post? Holder knows very well what he is doing with his carefully worded threat and should know better than to warn or threaten a prosecutor–but the Deep State and its corrupt actors must be protected and “wingman” Holder has a job to do.
UPDATE: Rep. Dan Bishop (R-N.C.) understands, “Did Eric Holder obstruct justice in this threat to US Atty Durham?
“Good reputations are hard-won in the legal profession, but they are fragile; anyone in Durham’s shoes would do well to remember …”

Americans cannot be trusted to do the right thing and elect a Democrat.
So that’s why they are pushing this sham impeachment.
FOX News reported:
“We cannot rely on an election to solve our problems, when the president threatens the very integrity of that election,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said in his opening statement, claiming Trump’s discussions with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky about Joe and Hunter Biden’s dealings in the country, and the White House’s temporary withholding of military aid to Ukraine, constituted an “urgent” threat to national security.
“This committee now owes it to the American people to give these articles careful attention,” Nadler added at the beginning of the markup for the impeachment articles, which included obstruction of Congress and abuse of power.

The Blackshear Fine Arts Academy invited Miss Kitty Litter ATX (real name David Robinson) to spend time with kids despite Robinson being a convicted prostitute.
Emails between the school’s librarian, Roger Grape, and Robinson suggest that Robinson knew he wouldn’t pass a background check and the school either ignored it or failed to carry one out.
“The guidelines for submission automatically disqualify me if the deferred adjudication for prostitution is considered a conviction… so I don’t know if [it’s] ethical to submit,” wrote Robinson.
“So either the school didn’t go through with the background check — or ignored it altogether. Either option is equally distressing,” writes the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins.
Robinson reportedly visited with children for the entire day.
A video posted to Twitter but subsequently removed shows Robinson promoting an “international drag festival” while holding a baby doll in a baking pan in an apparent reference to the baby being food.
Robinson’s visit occurred after Austin schools passed a radical new curriculum that encourages children to be taught about LGBT issues at an early age.
As we previously highlighted, after another drag queen, “Lynn Adonis” visited Willis High School in Houston, Texas, parents complained, prompting English teacher Anthony Lane to assert that parents shouldn’t have the “final say” in raising their own kids.
Another participant at a Drag Queen Story Time event in Houston, 32-year-old Albert Garza, later turned out to be a registered sex offender who was convicted of assaulting an 8-year-old boy in 2008.
The Farm Workforce Modernization Act passed by 260 votes to 165, receiving 34 votes from Republicans. Three Democrats voted no.
The bill creates a process for illegals to apply for legal residency in the United States on the basis of their employment in the agricultural sector. Individuals who have worked in the industry for six months in the past two years will be able to apply for residency, should the legislation be signed into law.
The bill’s supporters claim it is necessary in order to solve a supposed labor shortage affecting the American agricultural industry and lowering the profit margins of business owners. However, they ignore that many farmers would be able to hire American workers if they were willing to pay better wages.
More than a million illegals would be eligible for residency and eventually a path to citizenship under the law’s rules.
The illegals that are often employed in California’s agricultural industry are willing to work in uncomfortable conditions for wages that are far lower than what Americans would typically be willing to work for. Bureau of Labor statistics reveal that the median hourly wage in the agricultural industry in 2014 was a paltry $10.55, hardly a wage that Americans can afford to live on.
It’s no surprise that entrenched corporate interests are hoping to bend the rules of the American immigration system in order to get more cheap labor. Lobby groups for Big Agriculture closely pushed the bill.
One Republican supporter of the Amnesty legislation even took the opportunity to take a shot at American workers upon its House passage, falsely claiming that Americans simply want to stay at home and play Xbox all day instead of working arduous jobs.
The legislation now goes to the Senate. It’s unclear if it’ll be taken up by Senate Majority Leader, who has a mixed record on opposing amnesty legislation and cheap labor giveaways for big corporations.
