Bill Barr is shitting himself now that the Lafayette Square weapons scandal is public. He’s running around the DOJ telling everyone to respect his “authority” like he’s Eric Cartman. Most of Barr’s antics backfire. His latest antic will land him in prison, and he knows it.
Barr failed to get Flynn and Stone off the hook, failed to keep Cohen in prison, failed to keep Lev, Igor, and Bannon from getting arrested, failed to take over SDNY, failed at whatever he was trying to do in Lafayette Square. Barr is evil, but he’s a laughably inept henchman.
Trump and Barr are both simplistic villains, in way over their heads, and out of ideas. Only difference between them is Barr isn’t senile, so he understands that Trump is on track to lose, and that both their lives are over if he does.
The only reason Barr has any leverage at all is that the media constantly and falsely depicts him as an evil genius with superpowers, and we fall for it, so when he tried his simplistic antics we cower instead of laughing in his face like we should.
If we would just stop cowering to these dumb fucks in the Trump regime, they’d have been gone a long time ago. Trump is a senile and broken. Barr is failing at everything he tries. Caputo just quit. These are already-defeated villains, trying to con us into cowering in fear.
If you waste one goddamn minute fretting this week over what Bill Barr might threaten to do next, then you’re part of the problem, because you should be spending that time phone banking and volunteering. Things that actually change the outcome of an election.
Turn off the fear mongering on MSNBC, stop staring at scary doomsday tweets, and get out in the real world and win this election. Do you want to win or not? If you waste this week fretting over whatever the pundits are telling you to cower over, then you don’t care about winning.

What's it like being an honest political pundit, in a sea of pundits who are just trying to hype anything they can for ratings and attention? Let me tell you a story.
Imagine you're watching football, in a room full of people who all rooting for your team, but many of them are still learning the rules, scoring and strategy of the game. They think the team with the most yards is winning. They think throwing a long pass on every play is smart.
Even as you're trying to teach everyone in the room how football actually works, the TV announcer is going out of his way to mislead everyone. He's giving the wrong score. He's suggesting that the losing team can somehow win by simply refusing to leave the field at the end.

It's clear that John Durham has found nothing in his U.S. intel community probe that Trump and Barr can use, and Barr doesn't want to have to break the bad news to Trump, so instead Barr is sending Durham off on a Clinton Foundation goose chase. This is all going NOWHERE.
The real reason Donald Trump and Bill Barr are suddenly going after the Clinton Foundation…
Donald Trump’s scheme install his own electors falls completely to pieces…

For all the insanity, this has been a remarkably boring election.

Biden has had an 8 point lead against Trump all along, he still has an 8 point lead, it never changes, Trump's antics are doing nothing to change it.

It's going to come down to whether we turn out, nothing more.
Somebody do something!…
Joe Biden just nailed it…

One of the most important things you do can right now is turn off MSNBC, and leave it off for the rest of the election. If I had a dollar for every activist I've seen paralyzed into inaction by the scary ratings-driven bullshit on that network... just turn it off and get to work.
Yes, turn off CNN too. Cable news is not an efficient way to learn the news; you can read the news much more quickly. Cable news is sometimes a place for analysis – but even that far too often takes a backseat to scare tactics aimed at simply keeping you tuned in.
As we get closer to election day, the doomsday hysteria on MSNBC and CNN will only get more out of control. Even Maddow, normally the most insightful person on TV, embarrassed herself tonight with a 'we're going to lose no matter what' narrative. Why watch that kind of shit?

At times like this, if you find yourself yelling "why doesn't somebody do something," you're that somebody. Elections bring change. Elections are won through voter registration and volunteering. Get to work!
Donald Trump just gave away how badly he knows he’s losing…
Everyone piles on after Mitt Romney swings and misses…

I warned you all along that once Trump realized he couldn't win, he'd threaten to just stay in office, to test if you're gullible enough to believe he can somehow magically do that. Today begins the test. Your job is to laugh at the dipshit, and go vote him out in record numbers.
If you all collectively decide you're gullible enough to believe that Trump can indeed somehow magically remain in office after he loses, then you'll be handing Trump leverage. He'll be able to trade leaving peacefully in exchange for some kind of criminal leniency.
Trump can only get something in return for leaving office peacefully, if you're all dumb enough to believe that he somehow has the option of not leaving. Please, don't be that dumb. You're not kindergartners. Don't fall for the "I stole your nose" trick.
