@Windthin - Sorry you have to deal with any kind of restriction from Twitter. Nonsense I’m sure. Hang in there.

Here’s some blowback from AG Barr…complaining of T’s tweets, and talking to ABC News on how Barr feels caught in the middle. Clearly, Barr is trying to clean up the situation.

In the interview with ABC News, Barr fiercely defended his actions and said it had nothing to do with the president. He said he was supportive of Stone’s convictions but thought the sentencing recommendation of seven to nine years as excessive. When news outlets reported the seven to nine year sentencing recommendation last Monday, Barr said he thought it was spin.

Barr said he told his staff that night that the Justice Department has to amend its recommendation. Hours later, the president tweeted that it was “horrible and very unfair” and that “the real crimes were on the other side.”

“Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!” Trump tweeted

“Yes. Well, I have a problem with some of, some of the tweets. As I said at my confirmation hearing, I think the essential role of the attorney general is to keep law enforcement, the criminal process sacrosanct to make sure there is no political interference in it. And I have done that and I will continue to do that,” adding, “And I’m happy to say that, in fact the president has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case.”

Barr also told ABC News he was “a little surprised” that the prosecution team withdrew from the case and said he hadn’t spoken to the team.

I don’t actually know, though I suspect perhaps because I added a bunch of people and it had been a while? The message said I did something that it felt looked automated. It wanted me to re-verify when I got home, and the reason I can’t unlock it is that the number I used expired, and I no longer have it, so I am waiting on them to unlock and restore it for me and then hopefully taking steps to ensure that doesn’t happen again. In the meantime, my account is there and visible, but all of the threads show up as individual posts and I can’t access it. Frustrating.

Bummer, hopefully you’ll sort it out soon.

I started following her the last time you mentioned her. She’s a great source too! Thanks.

Glad you started following her…she has the long view, and rounds out the larger story.

What a complicated, disruptive, unending crazy Presidential administration these past 3 years…and thanks to sounder minds - WTFJHT and others, it is a relief to connect here and there.

Cheers.

Some clarity coming from Chief District Judge Beryl Howell on what should happen with a sentencing recommendation.

Maybe gone unnoticed with all the other stuff going on over the past week - but notable that someone who has received a lot of support from Trump over the past year is suddenly off-sides.

Boris Johnson has cancelled his planned trip to the White House after Trump slammed the phone down on him in a moment of ‘apoplectic’ fury**

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has cancelled a planned trip to meet with President Donald Trump next month after a furious row between the two men.

Johnson had been due to visit Washington shortly after his election victory in December.

The visit has been repeatedly delayed, however, amid a series of disagreements between the two leaders.

Trump slammed the phone down on Johnson last month after the prime minister defied him on the issue of Huawei’s involvement in the UK.

Groyper leader Nick Fuentes has been kicked off of youtube. He has a sad.

This story is interesting; apparently the ban against polygamy hasn’t stopped it, just created entire ostracized communities without proper schools and law enforcement and so on, or access to good jobs, and allowed predators free rein.

Such is the case with many other prohibitions; alcohol during the 20s, drugs, and prostitution.

So this step will move to give these families legitimacy again.

The demise of Newspapers and Journalism can be boiled down to cost structures on paper vrs. internet driven ad sources diverge. Readers who are used to getting content for free, on the internet and instantly is the new norm. But now with the existing 20K journalists remaining (Reliable Sources 2.17.20) which is far fewer than ever…creates some real uncertainty on keeping a reliable press.

This isn’t news, not really. I am just wanting to celebrate that twitter finally unlocked me this morning and I took steps to ensure that can’t happen again. After my first account got suspended with nearly 100k posts on it (and I was never told why), you have no idea how relieved I am.
