    Wow… who’d have thought you’d use nothing but “buzz words” for the left talking about Bill Barr. Oh and the “don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time” that “time” was all put in motion by our dear president Biden Bc he was a major co-writer of the 1994 Crime Bill along w the previous Democratic Presidential Campaign runner Mrs. Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill. But you won’t ever talk about that…. Why? Bc Trump ACTUALLY DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT unlike his predecessor of 8 years our beloved, African-American (should just be American but y’all Dems need to have that race card and identity politics) Mr. Barack Hussein Obama. He didn’t do shit for the black communities. Trump just had the greatest economy in the HISTORY OF THE WORLD! But you’ll never give him credit it was Obama that did it right? Not Trump cutting regulations. And y’all complaining about Article Two… which Obama used more than anyone. Which is awesome that that’s never mentioned🤣🤣. Also Trump being a “Tyrant”?? Seriously? Bzzz Bzzz Bzzz 🐝 🐝 gotta use those buzz words dick face

      Also love that Barr wanted to charge the people protesting with Sedition. Yet it was their own idiotic followers who truly did just that at the Capital. Yet somehow none of the Republicans see it that way. Yet protesters who weren't doing anything at all to try and overthrow the Government quickly got labeled as such.

    It's now summer, 2021 -- and Barr is in full retreat from his previous zealous support of Chairman Trump. Since LWT made this blistering segment Trump has lost the 2020 election, caused two seats in Georgia to be lost to the Democrats, fostered the Big Lie, caused the Jan. 6th insurrection -- all criminal activities that Barr recently characterized as "all total bullshit." Trump has responded with attacks on Barr, all of which remind one of what has happened to SO MANY former supporters of Trump's that see the light and dump him like a bad habit. Interesting 360, eh ...

    Why is it that all of america is so hard for 'Alba an Aigh' on bagpipes? You are literally playing what would basically be another countries national anthem there, if britian ever could let willingly go of teriotory outside of their borders. EVERY time somebody plays bagpipes in american media, it's that. AFAIK it even was the default for a lot of military funerals if you wanted the bagpipes and didn't specify anything else. EVEN SCOTTS THEMSELVES don't play that much 'Scottland the Brave' on their bagpipes. PSA; There it's usually 'For auld lang syne' that you can't escape being multiphonorously funneled into your earholes at hazardous decible levels.

(an example) of his bullshit is him trying to justify himself by saying no tear gas was used and pepper spay was ok. I've got news for him pepper spay is just as bad as tear gas.
