In a wide-ranging conversation for Constitution Day at Hillsdale College, Attorney General Bill Barr went after the protesters of the Black Lives Matter movement, the Washington Post reported Wednesday.

“They’re not interested in Black lives,” Barr claimed. “They’re interested in props, a small number of Blacks who are killed by police during conflicts with police — usually less than a dozen a year — who they can use as props.”

Barr also said that the coronavirus lockdowns were almost as bad as slavery, in terms of the infringement on civil liberties.

President Donald Trump’s lawyer has told federal prosecutors to go after protesters he sees as violent and charge them with treason.

In 2010, the Obama administration’s Justice Department charged nine militia members with seditious conspiracy after their plot to kill police officers was uncovered.

Under the law, an organized plot to kill people in an anti-government attack is often seen as different than throwing water bottles or rocks at police officers.

"Have you experienced any extra fund-raising surge over the weekend?" O'Donnell asked.

"Well, Lawrence, we have gotten tremendous support and we really appreciate it," Harrison replied.

"Do you believe you have the resources and the campaign team and the ground troops you need in South Carolina to actually pull this off?" O'Donnell asked later in the interview.

Outrage against Dianne Feinstein as potential Judiciary chair comes out against Senate reform

Published

on

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) received harsh criticism on Monday after coming out against Senate reform of the filibuster.

“I don't believe in doing that. I think the filibuster serves a purpose," Feinstein argued.

"It is not often used, it's often less used now than when I first came, and I think it's part of the Senate that differentiates itself," Feinstein falsely claimed.
