looks to me like Barr is dangling form invisible meat hooks.
someone should have responded withSince today's protest have all been peaceful, is Trump agains the 1st amendment or just hyped over a crime drama series?
All that for a picture that shows how insane you are.Evidently, the Trump admin had attempted to explain this by claiming that there was a pre-existing decision to expand the security perimeter around the area, and that this clearing of protesters had nothing to do with Trump's publicity stunt. They lied.
The decision was made immediately after Trump decided to do the Bible stunt.
Also, they seem have violated both the First Amendment and a 2015 settlement between park police and DoJ setting rules and limits on how protesters can be handled.
It was Trump appealing to his religious base. One wonders how many more votes he thinks he can get by pandering to that same base. Apparently, the light bulb has never gone on that he might try actually broadening his appeal.All that for a picture that shows how insane you are.
His thinking is that he won once following this pattern and he thinks with his once great economy he'll get even more...his base has never left his side.It was Trump appealing to his religious base.

That would be an approximation of his "thinking" to the extent he is "thinking" at all. I view it more as his instinct as a narcissist. This instinct causes him to want to appease people who like him, and denigrate those who do not. The rationale you describe is more of a rationalization of his acting on pure emotion.His thinking is that he won once following this pattern and he thinks with his once great economy he'll get even more...his base has never left his side.
But it does not explore why so many officers used as much force as they did against peaceful protesters in the area that day -- or dig deeper into the actions of the Secret Service and other federal entities on the ground.
Regarding claims of violent tactics used against protestors, the report said only that "individual uses of force" by Park Police officers "are the subject of separate inquiries or ongoing lawsuits."
Given the narrow focus of its report on whether the U.S. Park Police exceeded its authority on June 1, the inspector general did not seek interviews with other key agencies and senior Trump administration officials, including leaders of the Secret Service, White House aides, or Attorney General Bill Barr.
So now we know you cant read..hahaha....good job being a fucking puppet!*****BUMPED****
New news as of today
Police did not clear Lafayette Park so Trump could hold 'Bible' photo op: Watchdog (msn.com)
Refresh my memory:
Did Nixon clear out protestors so he could take a stroll?
The Nixon administration likewise framed the counter-protest as a genuine, and organic, expression of support for the war. But in reality, the administration, in concert with New York labor leaders, had helped coordinate the counterprotest and several more that would take place throughout May. Both the president’s advisors and many labor leaders saw promise in putting forth the traditionally Democrat-aligned labor unions as a counteracting force to the rapidly growing number of anti-war protesters.
Several days before the eruption of violence in New York, Nixon’s chief of staff, H.R. Haldeman suggested to the president that construction workers, or ‘hard hats,’ be used to create conflict. Local shop stewards, according to sources who spoke out years later, specifically encouraged workers to counter-protest the May 8 demonstration, in some cases even offering them cash bonuses to do so.
