Carol Leonnig and Phil Rucker's new book I Alone Can Fix It contains some stories about former Attorney General Bill Barr using surprisingly blunt language to convince former President Donald Trump to stop doing daily coronavirus briefings.

 "I feel you are going to lose the election," Barr told Trump in April 2020 as the virus was killing more Americans, according to the reporters. "I feel you are actually losing touch with your own base."

 Some of the Trump fans that Barr had talked to when traveling had confided in him that they were bothered by Trump's petty squabbles with his perceived enemies when they needed him. They, like most Americans, wanted steady leaders that could steer the country through the pandemic and bring back the economy.

 "I have yet to meet anybody who supports you who hasn't said to me, 'We love the president, but would you please tell him to turn it back a bit?'" Barr said according to the new book. "You're going to lose because there's going to be enough people who otherwise would vote for you who are just tired of the acrimony, the pettiness, the punching down and picking a fight at every moment, and the apparent chaos, and they're just going to say, 'We're tired of this sh*t.' "

 Barr went on to tell Trump that he thinks the only reason Trump won in 2016 after the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape was because Trump put his head down and behaved himself.

 "It actually scared you enough to listen to Kellyanne [Conway]," said Barr. "And for the last several weeks you behaved yourself and you won by a hair. This time it's different. You cannot wait until the end."

 Barr wasn't the only one. The day that Trump told people to inject disinfectant and stick a UV light into their bodies, his aides assumed the election was done.The book recalls then-campaign manager Brad Parscale calling Jared Kushner saying, "We're going to lose in a landslide. You've got Doctor Trump up there all day. We're still going down in the polls. We're losing and nothing's changing."

 "I know," Kushner agreed. "This is horrible."

 By June, Parscale was worried again.

 "Let the doctors do the work," Parscale told Trump according to the book. "Do whatever Fauci f*cking says. You're going to lose if you don't change. You're going to lose."

 Still, the book explained that Trump wanted to be in charge.

 "I'm doing this my own way," Trump replied to Parscale. "I'm going to win."

Former president Trump never listened to his learned advisors. That's why he's "former" president Trump.

A one term loser.

 WASHINGTON — The Biden administration has decided to waive sanctions against the company overseeing the construction of Russia's Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany, despite bipartisan opposition in Congress and appeals from Eastern European governments.
 Republican lawmakers immediately accused the administration of handing Russian President Vladimir Putin a major political victory. Democrats urged the White House to reconsider, and the Kremlin called the news a "positive signal."

Not even Democrats understand Biden capitulating to Putin. Well, as much as Biden can be coherent about what’s going on.

Read your own article


German Chancellor Angela Merkel's government had quietly lobbied the administration not to impose sanctions that would block the completion of the pipeline, which runs under the Baltic Sea to Germany.

 "But we've been very clear. President Biden has been very clear that he thinks that Nord Stream 2 is a bad idea and a bad deal for Europe, for us, for the alliance."It undermines basic EU principles in terms of energy security and energy independence. It poses a challenge to Ukraine, to Poland, to other countries that we care about."

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken
March 25, 2021





Maybe Putin has leverage on Biden?

You, Biden and Merkel think it’s a good idea. I’ll sleep so much better. Meanwhile, Biden kills pipelines in the US. That’s a special kind of brain dead right there.
