#3 Call me old fashioned, but I think they need to post sharpshooters, and eliminate the attempts of the putschists to inflict serious bodily harm. The common law, the U.S. Constitution, federal law, and commonsensical prudence require such countermeasures.

Granted, somehow, as a measure of grace, they could fire rubber bullets or other “less than Lethal” rounds, and aim for appendages — but something has to tame the beast. The Constitution only provides for “the right of the people peaceably to assemble,” and these are not peaceable assemblies — they’re riots.

#4 Delayed because of a car accident? That's a pretty lame excuse.

#5 Post sharp shooters and target the sources of the lasers that are being used and the mortars.

I'm sure there are a few vets with experience doing that.

#6 If they are throwing explosives, fire bombs, they are taking lethal actions. Snipers stopping it is justified. Send in the teams....

#8 I'm listening to this nonsense at the moment. Democrats claim that Trump wants violent confrontation between rioters and federal troops to bolster his campaign for reelection. They accuse Barr of launching Operation Legend to help with Trump's reelection while ignoring daily attacks on the federal building in Portland. It is truly sickening to watch.

Understandable because Nadler is a lame wad dirt bag.

#10 I don't think the Dems have thought through how this all appears to the non-idiotic non-rioting public. They are abdicating any authority. Barr's calm demeanor as opposed to that fat POS Nadler is telling

#11 Post sharp shooters and target the sources of the lasers that are being used and the mortars.

I hear they've been using slingshots, powerful slingshots that project ball bearings. That's a deadly weapon and anybody using it needs to be shot.

I'm afraid they have, in fact, because they have MSM parroting their line every night on TV and in the newspapers.

#13 Come on, Barr: we need more than speeches. We need indictments, trials, convictions, and prison sentences.

Git 'er done!!!!

#14 Sheila Jackson Lee is talking now about systemic racism and all but calling Barr a racist. I don't want to be a racist. I want to believe that most blacks are not as dishonest and obnoxious as she is.

#16 Democrats are going off on long winded and unsubstantiated rants. They ask a question or two but they don't want to hear Barr's answers. They interrupt him, talk over him and keep running their mouths.

#17 Democrats launch furious attack on AG Bill Barr accusing him of using federal agents against protesters for 'footage for campaign ads' - as he lashes back: 'Since when is it OK to burn down a federal courthouse?'

#18 I sure hope all GOP opponents are getting all of these quotes to put in campaign ads...probably too many, but still, the stuff coming out of their gobs is incredible.

#19 These demoncrats are domestic enemies of the US and need to be treated accordingly.

#20 There certainly seems to be a particular virulence and urgency in the Democrat attacks on Barr. The dishonesty and disregard for pertinent facts is so obvious that they all look like fools. But why would they show themselves to be such fools if they truly believed that Trump will be defeated in November and Barr will be replaced by Kieth Ellison in January 20201? The virulence and urgency would seem to caused by desperation and fear that Trump will be re-elected and Barr will allow Durham's investigation to ultimately prove the politicization of Obama's Justice Department.

#22 Durham was appointed by Barr - discredit Barr as "political" never mind Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch and they get a head start on discrediting Durham. I smell desperation as well

#23  Post sharp shooters and target the sources of the lasers that are being used and the mortars.

Can sharpshooters use paintballs? Nothing says I’m a laughingstock more than having to step away from the riot after getting hit by a bruising bunch of paintballs... not to mention the very sobering thought that tomorrow night it might be bullets. Ditto with red laser sights — everyone knows serious shooters use red laser sights ‘cause we see it in the movies and television shows. And it would be helpful to have spotter video of the rioter before and during the shot, if that’s possible.

I love how you two think.

#26 They are trying to circumvent the investigation on those who were spying on Trump by going after the investigators.

#28 I just finished watching the hearing on the installment plan. A bit of a disappointment but not unexpected. One thing that came out was that a U.S. Attorney in Texas is handling the wholesale unmasking that went on under Obama. Another thing that came out is that we have some friggin rude members of Congress on the committee. Many of the questions by majority members came out sounding like "When did you stop beating your wife." Moreover the Dems are sticking with their story that the demonstrations were peaceful. They are operating in an alternative reality.
