Victor Davis Hanson nails it!

January 16, 2019

Victor Davis Hanson absolutely nailed it on Tuesday’s Laura Ingraham show when describing what the problems are now with America’s criminal justice system and why the nomination of Bill Barr has the potential to make such an important difference. It’s so stellar, and needs so little embellishment from me or anyone else, that I’ve transcribed here, so you can ponder it word-for-word…

VDH: “...He’s taking over a Justice Department that’s had a large number of departures and an FBI where at least ten people have been reassigned, retired or fired, so that the agency has lost its reputation, and so has the Department of Justice. But more importantly, his task is to reestablish the concept of equality under the law, because we know that people like James Comey were leaking, Andrew McCabe was leaking, Baker was leaking; we know that FISA courts were deceived; we know that the director of the FBI went before Congress under oath [and] 245 times said he didn’t know or didn’t remember something that --- they bring Trump up to Mueller and if he did that, they would indict him.

“So there’s a perception out there in America, whether it’s warranted or not, that there’s two sets of laws. There’s Mueller’s investigation of Trump that goes over, you know, every type of business, tax relationships, the whole 20 months’ worth of investigation, and then there’s these key players in the FBI and DOJ that were involved in behaviors –- I’m not even getting into the unmasking and leaking of the Mike Flynn or the National Security Council’s leaking of unmasked names or the Hillary Clinton’s warped probe --- but there’s this perception that there’s no equality under the law, and that’s fatal for a democracy.

“So that’s what he has to do. He has to look at all of this behavior, not just the Mueller investigation, but all of the tangential behavior and ask himself, ‘Was American federal law applied equally across the board, regardless of a person’s stature, income, money or position,’ and so far, that hasn’t been true.”

This is it. This is what I hear about every day from dismayed readers and from people I talk with, and he has captured it very well. We all see that the American justice system is broken, with "friends" dealt with in one way and "enemies" (or simply the unconnected) dealt with in a vastly different way. The only thing I might add is that I think this goes beyond mere “perception” –- that what we are witnessing REALLY IS a justice system with two different sets of criteria, depending on who the person is. That makes it all the worse. The good news is that Barr, in his testimony on Tuesday, certainly gave the impression of someone who cares deeply about equal treatment under the law. Time will tell.

Victor Davis Hanson wrote a great piece five months ago on this subject –- that is to say, a two-tiered justice system –- that is so timely it could have been written yesterday. I include it here.

    Mike,

    "We the People" are hearing that William Barr is for gun confiscation. He and Diane Feinstein would walk hand-in-hand on this issue. We Americans would be in the same situation as German citizens when Hitler confiscated their guns.

    Please check into this matter. I have already called my senators and gone on to their web sites asking that they vote "NO" on William Barr's confirmation.

    Mike - I've been with you since you first announced your candidacy. I want to believe you in the worst way possible, that Bob Barr will do what is right. However, I can't help but believe, from all we have seen to date, that the conspiracy to overthrow POTUS and indeed the United States is too vast. We've seen nothing from anyone new (Wray, Whitaker, Huber, Horrowitz, etc) to suggest ANYONE WILL INTERVENE. And, as long as Mueller continues under the auspices of "All evidence belongs to him" I don't see where any of the conspirators he is protecting (by only investigating POTUS) can be dealt the hand of justice. And putting all of 2017 and prior stuff aside for just a moment, who believes that the 2018 election results were not criminally tainted? How were so many races won by the GOP on election night overturned due to hidden and mysteriously found boxes of ballots marked in favor of Democrats? Why is the GOP not supporting our President? Why are they not fighting to investigate these election time crimes? Seems to me they are all in it together and the country has already gone Marxist. Sure would like to hear something different from you.

    "Two sets of justice" has been the way for, well probably forever. Might be worse now, or just that you are shedding some light on it.
    A somewhat lighthearted example is my father, Hugh A. Kelly, Superintenent of Schools in Delmar, Delaware 1956 - 1977. Delmar schools did not proceed with integration at a rate satisfactory to the LBJ administration. While HAK had no personal business dealings or income outside of his salary, Our IRS audited his taxes twice. Each time, being a man of strong character, he redid his taxes showing that Our Gov't owed him exactly $1.
    Perhaps more serious is George Wallace. Of course he was a Bad Racist Guy (though didn't Jesse Jackson go to him for advice when JJ ran for president?) so there ddn't seem to be much investigation when he was shot and paralyzed/removed from the presidential race. Wallace was, at the time, running as a third party candidate against Nixon. One suspects he might have taken a large share of the very conservative vote from RMN. I believe RMN was the same guy who was so concerned about the election that his helpers burglarized the Democrats at the Watergate hotel.
    From Marylin Monroe's suicide through assorted Clinton associate deaths one might have a lot of suspicions about our Leaders' activities.
    Two sets of justice - we all of us have long known that is the nature of things. Ranges from what sort of car one drives too fast to deeds of national concern. It appears to be exceptionally bad now. Would love to see it cleaned up a bit at the federal level. is

    Actually, we have had a 2 tier or maybe even more for laws and justice for many years. It may have only been local for many but it has been present. A friend said over 20 years ago after he served on the town commissioners board and later went on the county board that if you want to advance in service to your town, county, state, etc. you have to become one of the "good old boys", "team player" etc. to go very far. He meant that honesty wasn't the criteria for the job but compromising your principles was the game.
    For many years, money has been the leading support for justice for many. Look at the kid that ran over and killed a mother and daughters who were selling Girl Scout cookies and he wasn't given any time and the judge said he was the product of affluence otherwise known as the Affluenza Disease. His mother was his biggest accomplice and he went on to do more harm as did she also. This mess in Washington just shows how far it has gone and how deep the corruption actually is. Our judges follow their own ideas. Juries are stacked by the questionnaires they send you ahead of time before you are to serve on a jury. Of course you want your lawyer to pick the less prejudice jurors but is it right for the outcome of right and wrong in a trial by the law or by pervasive law?
    The biggest shame of all is that very few of us are surprised at the outcomes in Washington as we suspected as much already. It is refreshing, however, that it has really come out even if nothing or no one ever gets the punishment they should get. Sometimes the sins of the fathers are put on the children and they, the children, end up paying the price later. Hate destroys the container it is kept in. A good quote from the George W.H. Bush funeral.

    I sure hope this is true. Then he could also tell the House. Trump hasn't done anything impeachable, to shutup & go back to work, for the people...not for yourselves!!!!

    I wish their pay & perks were taken away, till they can behave! A bunch of adult size children.

    Thank you for the ray of hope today.

    I remember the statement "power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely." It seems that is what has been occurring for the last few decades. The rot in D.C. is apparent even out here in the Pacific N.W. It is happening big time with Ms. Pelosi's grab to become the new "Queen of Heaven." We are in big trouble if believers don't bend the knees and seek God's face in these dangerous times.

    Governor Huckabee - What I see, and what you seem to be trying not to say overtly, is there is one set off rules for Democrats and another for Republicans. I am fiercely independent, and don't see eye to eye with either parties' far right or far left, obviously, but it is abundantly clear a double standard is being practiced in the judicial system. I applaud your fine work and commentary. God bless you and you family, Danny

    However, Bill Barr is more anti-gun than most liberals.
    It appears the 2nd amendment will be under attack with him ....
    I cannot be a fan ...

    ".... During a line of questioning from notorious anti-gun Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) regarding gun control, Barr showed his true colors:
    “We need to push along the ERPOs so that we have these red flag [gun confiscation] laws...this is the single most important thing I think we can do in the gun control area.”1

    Feinstein was so pleased that she gave Barr’s response her personal stamp of approval:
    “Thank you, I’d like to work with you in that regard.”

  • David Colonna

    01/16/2019 01:09 PM

    Mike,
    Mr. Barr truly worries me because I would have told the confirmation committee that Mr. Mueller has over stepped his boundaries and I would demand he provide me all evidence so I can evaluate if I fire him or prosecute him for stealing the taxpayers money. Mr Barr is supposedly a long time friend of Mr. Mafia Meuller and also supported Jeff Session recusing himself. It just sounds like a deep state puppet taking over the helm. I cannot believe how corrupt our government is and no wonder we are having so much trouble across the US.

A friend said over 20 years ago after he served on the town commissioners board and later went on the county board that if you want to advance in service to your town, county, state, etc. you have to become one of the "good old boys", "team player" etc. to go very far. He meant that honesty wasn't the criteria for the job but compromising your principles was the game.
    For many years, money has been the leading support for justice for many. Look at the kid that ran over and killed a mother and daughters who were selling Girl Scout cookies and he wasn't given any time and the judge said he was the product of affluence otherwise known as the Affluenza Disease. His mother was his biggest accomplice and he went on to do more harm as did she also. This mess in Washington just shows how far it has gone and how deep the corruption actually is. Our judges follow their own ideas. Juries are stacked by the questionnaires they send you ahead of time before you are to serve on a jury. Of course you want your lawyer to pick the less prejudice jurors but is it right for the outcome of right and wrong in a trial by the law or by pervasive law?
    The biggest shame of all is that very few of us are surprised at the outcomes in Washington as we suspected as much already. It is refreshing, however, that it has really come out even if nothing or no one ever gets the punishment they should get. Sometimes the sins of the fathers are put on the children and they, the children, end up paying the price later. Hate destroys the container it is kept in. A good quote from the George W.H. Bush funeral.

    I sure hope this is true. Then he could also tell the House. Trump hasn't done anything impeachable, to shutup & go back to work, for the people...not for yourselves!!!!

    I wish their pay & perks were taken away, till they can behave! A bunch of adult size children.

    Thank you for the ray of hope today.

    I remember the statement "power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely." It seems that is what has been occurring for the last few decades. The rot in D.C. is apparent even out here in the Pacific N.W. It is happening big time with Ms. Pelosi's grab to become the new "Queen of Heaven." We are in big trouble if believers don't bend the knees and seek God's face in these dangerous times.

    Governor Huckabee - What I see, and what you seem to be trying not to say overtly, is there is one set off rules for Democrats and another for Republicans. I am fiercely independent, and don't see eye to eye with either parties' far right or far left, obviously, but it is abundantly clear a double standard is being practiced in the judicial system. I applaud your fine work and commentary. God bless you and you family, Danny

    However, Bill Barr is more anti-gun than most liberals.
    It appears the 2nd amendment will be under attack with him ....
    I cannot be a fan ...

    ".... During a line of questioning from notorious anti-gun Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) regarding gun control, Barr showed his true colors:
    “We need to push along the ERPOs so that we have these red flag [gun confiscation] laws...this is the single most important thing I think we can do in the gun control area.”1

    Feinstein was so pleased that she gave Barr’s response her personal stamp of approval:
    “Thank you, I’d like to work with you in that regard.”

    Mike,
    Mr. Barr truly worries me because I would have told the confirmation committee that Mr. Mueller has over stepped his boundaries and I would demand he provide me all evidence so I can evaluate if I fire him or prosecute him for stealing the taxpayers money. Mr Barr is supposedly a long time friend of Mr. Mafia Meuller and also supported Jeff Session recusing himself. It just sounds like a deep state puppet taking over the helm. I cannot believe how corrupt our government is and no wonder we are having so much trouble across the US.
