'My God,' Says US Senator After William Barr Deploys 'History Is Written by the Winners' Trope - US Is Suffering From Epstein Barr Syndrome As The River Of Fascism Deepens And Widens

WHAT IS EPSTEIN BARR SYNDROME?

The US is suffering from a combination of sexismrapism, racism, militarism, and predatory capitalism, which is nothing more than greed on steroids. These in turn allow white males who are rich, powerful and privileged to prey on women, girls and teens, as well as on the 99 percent, with no consequences. The 'rule of law' does not apply to the rich and powerful 1 percent. 

The mass media is complicit and goes along, because it makes huge profits from obeying the 'dictates' of despotic billionaires who act like dictatorial kings at the top of huge corporate empires, while advertising their toxic products.

One huge problem with corporations taking over the mass media and the government, is that this defines fascism. 

How might fascists benefit from the Coronavirus crisis?

The Employment-Population Ratio collapsed by 8.7 percentage points in April from March, to 51.3%, the lowest ratio in the history of the data going back to 1948. This ratio, based on household surveys, shows the percentage of people who have jobs compared to the overall working-age population (16 years and older). It includes full-time, part-time, and gig workers.


Fascists love chaos and financial distress, because then they can promise to ‘fix’ all of the problems, by just giving one Supreme Leader, all of the power, and demanding he take away all rights, freedom and democracy.

Hitler rode to absolute fascist power as a Supreme Leader, on the back of a financial depression after World War I.  He promised everyone to give them all jobs, security, absolute safety and eliminating all problems, but gave the people exactly the opposite. 

HISTORY IS BEING WRITTEN BY THE 'WINNERS WHO ARE DEEPENING FASCISM INSIDE THE USA

U.S. Attorney General William Barr on Thursday night said that "history is written by the winners" during an interview with CBS News.


"My god."

That was the initial two-word reaction of Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) late Thursday night after CBS News aired an interview with U.S. Attorney General William Barr who declared that "history is written by the winners" when asked how he thought historians would view the Justice Department's dropping of charges against President Donald Trump's former national security advisor Michael Flynn earlier in the day.

To critics like Murphy, Barr's response was a clear betrayal of the standards that should be upheld by the Justice Department and the American legal system.

"The entire idea of the rule of law—that thing the Attorney General is supposed to be in charge of upholding—is predicated on the outcome of elections NOT mattering when it comes to the operation of the legal system," Murphy said.

After the DOJ's decision to drop charges against Flynn there was no shortage of outrage directed at Barr, with many critics saying it appeared to be a direct effort to help the president politically.

"Barr has consistently acted for the personal and political benefit of President Trump, rather than fulfilling his duty as chief law enforcement officer of the United States," said Noah Bookbinder, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).

Legal experts, meanwhile, said the DOJ maneuvers related to the Flynn case were unprecedented.

"I've been practicing for more time than I care to admit and I've never seen anything like this," Julie O'Sullivan, a former federal prosecutor who now teaches criminal law at Georgetown University, told the New York Times.

The Justice Department filing does not show Michael Flynn is innocent. He still lied to the @FBI, a felony. He still violated FARA, a federal offense.

But Barr's deflection of such criticisms—delivered with what the Daily Beast characterized as "a sly smile"—during the CBS interview sparked even further alarm.

"The head of the American justice system now saying publicly that there is no good or bad except what the strongest want. The definition of autocracy," tweeted writer and director Adam Stein in response.

Political science professor Robert E. Kelly, who teaches at the Pusan National University in South Korea, said it's "kinda mind-blowing that the US equivalent of the justice minister is embracing might-makes-right historiography. [Isn't] his job literally the opposite?"

In the U.S. meanwhile, journalist and left-leaning columnist Will Bunch suggested it was time to put Barr's theory of history and justice to the test.

"We need to win in November and write the history of how Bill Barr spent the rest of his life in prison," Bunch quipped.
