Trump and Barr Fooled Them All

President Donald Trump faced a seemingly insurmountable problem. Again.

After having gone through a fake impeachment, the CCP Virus pandemic—which was coupled with a never-before-attempted economic shutdown—the Trump administration was suddenly faced with an escalating series of simultaneous riots in cities across the nation.

Peaceful protests across the country about the death of a black man named George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis quickly turned into a series of violent nationwide riots.

It turned out much of this rioting seen across America was orchestrated by anarchist groups loosely referred to by the name “Antifa.”

President Trump and Attorney General William Barr on May 31 announced that Antifa had been designated as a terror group and that all federal law enforcement agencies were now coordinating their efforts through the 56 FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces to “identify criminal organizers and instigators.”

While the Democrats and the media anticipated getting the optics they so desperately craved of Trump sending in soldiers with bayonets fixed charging at the “peaceful protesters,” what they got instead was the sudden appearance of a bunch of federal tactical units from the FBI, the Secret Service, the DEA, ATF, the U.S. Marshals Service, the Bureau of Prisons, and other agencies, in full gear, many with no rifles, and certainly no bayonets. 

As the entire nation is about to belatedly discover, federal agents do not need the permission of governors or mayors before they can enter a state or a city to enforce federal laws and arrest those who are breaking them. 

And it happens to be a federal crime to conduct terror attacks against American communities.

It seems the play among some Democrat governors and mayors was to refuse to call in the National Guard while also making their police departments stand down and give the rioters “space to destroy,” which would cause the situation to become so bad that Trump would be forced to act.

And the act they anticipated the president to take was to seize in the U.S. military in to restore order. This would have then allowed them to play their “Trump the Dictator” narrative all the way to the election. 

But Trump didn’t do what they expected.

If I could clearly see what the progressive Left was attempting to bait Trump into doing from down here in South Texas, then of course the president could see this for himself.

So Trump didn’t send the active-duty military in and the Left isn’t going to get their desired optics of regular military units chasing down rioters in the streets. 

Just as he did with his CCP virus response, Trump avoided the trap set for him while cutting the Gordian Knot he was being presented with.

Recall Democrats and the media spent months trying to browbeat this chief executive into seizing control from the Democratic governors and handling the virus response on a federal level. When they weren’t trying to bait him into doing that, they were trying to bait him into nationalizing various key industries. And Trump refused to do that either. 

Instead of doing what they eagerly hoped he would do, Trump’s enemies complained impotently as he forged an unprecedented alliance between federal agencies and private industry, the likes of which had not been seen since World War II. 

While “experts” stroked their chins for TV cameras and opined it would take months, if not years, to solve the four biggest needs—ventilators, virus testing, production of personal protective equipment, and a vaccine—Trump and his handpicked team tackled these problems with innovative creativity. They cut massive amounts of red tape and got results in a matter of days and weeks—not the predicted months and years.

Because Trump had successfully navigated the huge black swan event of a CCP virus pandemic, and as the new jobs report for May demonstrated, he’s also successfully navigated the economic shutdown, Democrats immediately moved to trying to turn nationwide rioting to their own political advantage. 

But Trump is simply too smart for these people. He sent in the feds, who spent the past week quietly taking down Antifa behind the scenes. And now it’s mostly over.

AG Barr Says Trump Admin Will Work on Use of Force Standards, Training With Police Leaders

June 8, 2020

Atorney General William Barr said on Monday that the Trump administration will work with law enforcement leaders to reform policing practices by improving standards and training amid days of protests calling for change following the death of George Floyd.

Barr made the comments while participating in a roundtable with law enforcement officials in the White House. He was joined by President Donald Trump, other members of the Trump administration, and law enforcement leaders.

During the meeting, Barr expressed the Trump administration’s commitment to making reforms in the policing profession, adding that the administration had already taken steps to make changes to the criminal justice system.

“I know that there is a lot of interest from police leaders for clarity and guidance on the use of force … making sure the standards are out there, making sure they are trained and making sure they are adhered to,” Barr said. “We’re looking forward to working with you to get that done.”

“The time for waiting is over. It’s now incumbent on us to bring good out of bad,” he added.

The attorney general’s comments come as protests have erupted across the United States in dozens of cities and towns following the death of Floyd, a black man who died as former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes during an arrest.

Amid the protests, some city officials have said the would defund or even dismantle the police. Among them is New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio, who said on Sunday that the city will move some of its funding from the New York Police Department to social services, while the City Council of Minneapolis said it will abolish its police department but didn’t offer many details.

The “Defund the Police” movement, which has been seen during protests and on social media in recent days, calls for reallocating funding destined for police departments to social programs, particularly to assist the African American community.

During the meeting on Monday, Trump said that he does not support local plans to reallocate police funding to other programs.

“There won’t be defunding. There won’t be dismantling of our police. There’s not going to be any disbanding of our police,” Trump said.

“Our police have been letting us live in peace and we want to make sure we don’t have any bad actors in there and sometimes we’ll see some horrible things like we witnessed recently but I say 99.9–let’s go with 99 percent of them–great, great people and they’ve done jobs that are record-setting,” he said.

The president also expressed that he was opened to ideas for revamping police tactics, including using gentler tactics.

“We’re going to work and we’re going to talk about ideas, how we can do it better, and how we can do it, if possible, in a much more gentle fashion,” the president said.

Trump has urged a “law and order” approach to the protests, which was echoed by Barr who added that law and order is “the foundation of civilization.”

“It is our responsibility to make sure that our country is ruled by law and not by violence,” he said.

Meanwhile, in an interview with Fox News on Monday, the attorney general said he believes it was “wrong” to defund the police and hold the entire police structure responsible for actions of certain officers, adding that he thinks it was also “dangerous to demonize [the] police.”

He added that pulling back the police from communities that usually see a high number of gun violence could result in “more harm done in these communities.”
