The Truth Comes Out – Bill Barr Lied About Trump’s Crimes From The Mueller Report

Aug 28

Last week, a court ruled that former Attorney General Bill Barr LIED to the American public about the crimes outlined in the Mueller Report that Trump likely committed (specifically, obstruction of justice.) The memo outlining Barr’s lies was released by the DOJ this week, and it is crystal clear that Barr lied about what Trump did in order to protect him from prosecution. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what this means for Trump moving forward.

So last week, an appeals court in Washington, DC said that the DOJ had to release the information about bill BARR, lying to the American public about what was actually in the Mueller report with regard to Donald Trump’s crimes. And yes, that appeals court specifically said, bill BARR, Donald Trump’s attorney general lied to the American public about what was in that Mueller report. So this week, of course, the DOJ did release that memo. And the memo shows that other members of, of course, the department of justice were encouraging bill BARR to come out and basically throw cold water on the Mueller report. Because if he doesn’t do that, people are going to see that Trump obstructed justice. And of course, as we all know, the Mueller report had at least 10 different instances of Donald Trump obstructing justice. But days before that came out, that’s when bill BARR showed up at that podium, did his little speech and said, there’s no obstruction of justice.

There’s no crimes. Donald Trump is completely innocent. This Mueller report completely exonerates him. Bill BARR told us with a straight face, no crimes at all. And of course he said, you can’t have obstruction if there’s no crime committed, which is a legal fallacy, by the way, you can have obstruction of justice, even if there was no crime committed, but nevertheless, that’s what bill BARR told us. And now we know that they did that intentionally to lie to us so that we wouldn’t know that Trump committed crimes. That is the ruling of that court. That is what this week’s memo reveals. And now we’re just kind of stuck in this situation, right? Cause there’s no need to go on with that story. That’s the end of the story. So the big question is, of course, what do we do?

Nothing. We just have to sit here and accept the fact that Donald Trump committed 10 different crimes during the course of that investigation and nothing bad happened to him, he didn’t get impeached for it. He didn’t get impeached for anything in the Mueller report. Congress didn’t pursue obstruction of justice charges. The DOJ operating from a memo from the Nixon era says, well, we can’t prosecute the president, which is total BS. That’s not a legal standing with the DOJ folks that is literally a memo from the Nixon era because they didn’t want them to prosecute Nixon. And we just get, we just gotta live with that. We just gotta live with that. That’s what me off so much about this story is the helplessness that it makes you feel like this court told us bill bar lied. Trump did commit crimes

And there is nothing we can do about it. They’re not gonna reopen investigations. They’re not gonna appoint a special prosecutor to go after this. You know, this was four or five years ago. Hell we might have even hit the statute of limitations at this point. I don’t know. I don’t know what the statute of limitations is on that particular piece. And it’s just, that’s just what it is. He did it. Bill BARR lied, bill. Barr’s not gonna be held accountable. He’s not in office anymore. Can’t impeach him. Can’t prosecute him for that because he was technically giving us his interpretation of it. It is what it is, which is why we have to hope that these current investigations into Donald Trump actually bring him down because I am sick and tired of watching this man, get away with everything under the sun, whether it’s big, whether it’s small, it doesn’t matter.

A world without insects? | Barrett Klein | TEDxUWLaCrosse

Aug 28, 2022

UWL Biology Professor Barrett Klein presents on “A world without insects?” during a TEDxUWLaCrosse presentation April 19 at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. The theme of the event was Renewal. Klein explored and revealed cultural connections we have with the ten quintillion insects with whom we share the planet. Insects not only serve vital ecosystem services like pollination, waste removal, and sustenance for others, but they also have intimately and profoundly shaped human culture for millennia. What we eat, where we live, how we dress, and what we believe are all affected by the six-legged animals around us. Renewal can be interpreted many ways, and Klein sees the connection between his advocating for insects as a call to look at and treat our distant relatives with a new perspective and vigor. He believes that we need to renew our appreciation for our connection with nature, or we will suffer the consequences of a depleted world. Distancing ourselves from the grand diversity of insects would diminish what best defines us. Human culture, in some key respects, stands on six legs.

Barrett Klein investigates entomology, animal behavior, scientific visualization, and cultural entomology. Present projects include studying the functional importance of sleep in social insects and bats, how insects impact human culture, and the importance of visuals in science. Studying entomology at Cornell, University of Arizona, and the University of Texas at Austin, Barrett took his more academic knowledge of insects and applied it in museum settings, creating exhibits at the American Museum of Natural History. Exploring the intersection of science and art, Barrett investigates insect behavior and how insects affect human culture in UWL’s Pupating Lab, dreaming about warmer weather when the wasps will return and when he can rejoin their glorious legion. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
