• Barr Busts Left’s False Narrative: Defends Police, Accuses China

    Surge Summary: On a CNN interview this week, Attorney General William Barr refused to co-operate with the Left’s anti-police, anti-Trump narrative. He recited facts regarding law-enforcement’s shootings of African-Americans and cited China (!) – not Russia – as the biggest threat to the integrity of upcoming U.S. elections.

    Attorney General William Barr, perhaps the best attorney general we have had in recent years, went on CNN [Wednesday] and busted the left’s false narratives on police shootings and election interference.

    On police shootings, Barr said:

    “The fact of the matter is, it’s very rare for an unarmed African American to be shot by a white police officer. There were ten cases last year, six of them the suspect was attacking the police officer physically. So they are rare things compared to the 7,000-8,000 young black men who are killed every year.”

    On election interference, Wolf Blitzer asked which country – Russia, China or Iran – was being the “most aggressive” and “most assertive” in attempting to influence the election.  Barr said, “I believe it’s China.”

    Blitzer seemed surprised and pushed Barr to explain why he believes that.  Barr calmly responded, “Because I’ve seen the intelligence.”

    Barr also warned that the country was “playing with fire” when it comes to mail-in voting.
