    AG Barr and the Right Wing Push for "Unitary Executive" Monarchy

    The real threat is not Fox News. The real threat is a right wing mythology, that is now reinventing WHY we fought the revolutionary war. AG Barr, in his most recent speeches, seeks to reinvent history, claiming we fought to end not the tyranny of King George, but of his "abusive" parliament, which is conveniently NOT listed in our declaration of independence, and is not mentioned by Jefferson or other founding fathers, in the same capacity, at all.

    Lawyers Call for AG Barr's Impeachment After Federalist Society Speech | Law & Crime

    Barr is the most partisan AG in this nation's history. He embraces a beyond federalist position, that the President and the executive have more authority than the constitution gives them; that the president is in essence a monarch, beholden to no one, and that our country requires a strong executive to function.

    AG Barr and DJT are essentially the antithesis of conservatism and libertarianism; they act in a fashion that would reshape this country and everything it stands for.

    Bill Barr’s theory of the unitary executive is wrong. So it’s not surprising that Barr’s criticisms of Mueller are incoherent when he tries to apply that theory to the Mueller Report.

    This is what the long game looks like, folks. The right wing began pushing this with Reagan, and Bush - pushing for more and more and more executive authority, because damned democracy gets in the way of what the right wing wants.

    This must be resisted at -all costs.-

    Read the articles. It's clear you did not. This is a push for an executive unrestrained by congress.

    Do you support that notion?

    SO far barr is right.

    Leftist of this country have waged a scorched earth attack against a sitting president.
    they are constantly making up things that have no proof or evidence to support in order to
    undermine and weaken the presidency.

    your story is a bit bias. The federalist society holds that the constitution reigns supreme in which it does.
    it is the legal frame work through which government operates.

    there is also only 1 way to change the constitution and that is through the amendment outline as authorized in the constitution.
    they are not radicals as your bias article claims.

    if they are radicals then guess what the founding fathers were radicals as well.

    the fact you think we are a democracy shows how much you are incorrect.
    we are not a true democracy we are a republic.

    Barr is completely right in his assessment of mueller report.
    it was a hodgepodge mess of nonsense.

    that violated the founding principles and constitutional rights of this country which was innocent until proven guilty.
    if mueller found no evidence (which he didn't) then trump is innocent.

    trump doesn't have to prove himself innocent.

    the mueller hearing was an unmitigated disaster for leftist in congress.
    mueller had no clue what was going on with his own investigation 99% of the time.

    no where did i see barr call for a "Unitary Executive" or whatever the hell that means.
    leftist making up **** again.

    all i see is a bunch of leftist with their panties in a wad because we have an AG that puts the rule of law
    above their cry's of torches and pitch forks.

    Barr has seen **** that will rock Dems to the core when released.
    According to NBC, “Justice Department officials have said that Durham has found something significant, and that critics should be careful.”

    Did you read the article and opinion piece?

    Do you know what the unitary executive theory is?

    Barr has written about it and commented on it in the past.

    Please don't bother replying to me with this incendiary nonsense. This is the country that is at stake and what AG Barr endorses would fundamentally change our nation into a banana republic with a kneecapped legislative branch and an empowered executive beyond judicial or legislative oversight.

    Trump is literally arguing he cannot be investigated, charged, anything, in his latest lawsuits.

    Is that something you embrace?

    Please address the unitary executive theory and what Barr and others are pushing for, please. Do not bother with the partisan trash here. My concern is this theory and those who push it.
