Features of One Damn Thing After Another PDF
One Damn Thing After Another PDF-The former attorney general provides a candid account of his historic tenures serving two vastly different presidents, George H.W. Bush and Donald J. Trump.
William Barr’s first tenure as attorney general under President George H.W. Bush was largely the result of chance, while his second tenure under President Donald Trump a deliberate and difficult choice. In this candid memoir, Barr takes listeners behind the scenes during seminal moments of the 1990s, from the LA riots to Pan Am 103 and Iran Contra. Thirty years later, Barr faced an unrelenting barrage of issues, such as Russiagate, the COVID outbreak, civil unrest, the impeachments, and the 2020 election fallout. One Damn Thing After Another is vivid, forthright, and essential not only to understanding the Bush and Trump legacies but also how both men viewed power and justice at critical junctures of their presidencies.

One Damn Thing After Another PDF These are the best books for lawyers all around the world.
William Barr, in full William Pelham Barr, (born May 23, 1950, New York City), American lawyer and government official who served as attorney general of the United States during the administrations of Presidents George H.W. Bush (1991–93) and Donald Trump (2019–20). Barr was the second person in U.S. history to serve twice as attorney general (the first was John J. Crittenden).
Bush administration and private practice
Barr attended Columbia University in New York City, earning a bachelor’s degree in government in 1971 and a master’s degree in Chinese studies in 1973. He worked for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from 1973 to 1977, first as an analyst and then in the legal department. He simultaneously attended George Washington University in Washington, D.C., from which he obtained a law degree in 1977. After being admitted to the bar, he joined the Washington, D.C., law firm Shaw, Pittman, Potts & Trowbridge.
From 1982 to 1983 Barr worked on the Domestic Policy Council during U.S. Pres. Ronald Reagan’s first term in office. He became a partner in his law firm in 1985. In 1989 Barr left private practice to join the U.S. Justice Department. He was first appointed assistant attorney general, rose to deputy attorney general, and then became attorney general. In that position, which he held from 1991 to 1993, he concentrated on the administration’s law enforcement directives, including a crackdown on savings and loan fraud that reached its peak with the federal prosecution of Lincoln Savings and Loan chief Charles Keating. Barr also directed the investigation of the terrorist bombing of Pan Am flight 103.

My pre-reading expectation was to not like this book and to like Barr even less. After reading the almost 600 pages, my opinion of Barr is changed, to some degree. Altho’ there’s a bunch of CYA explanations with respect to most thorny issues, (Russiagate, Comey, Impeachments, Epstein, Election Fraud…), he does come across as a patriot and one who served for the greater good of our country, not personal gain, which he didn’t need. Barr was happily and comfortably retired with his wife newly recovered from cancer and not happy at all with the tho’t of him re-entering public, political service.
The first third of the book is focused on Barr’s biography, family history, the stuff that prepared him to serve not once, but twice, (Bush & Trump), as Attorney General of the United States. Only one other man has done this and he’s the only one to do so in two different centuries. His additional work history is varied and prepared him well for this demanding position.
Barr is adamant in his political views which will not sit well with some readers. He’s a Republican but not opposed to bipartisanship. He is opposed to extremism, left, right or wherever it comes from. Barr is not shy sharing his feelings about those he believes are pushing our country into Marxism and spends a lot of pages providing supporting examples.
As this is classified a memoir, there are no notes; it’s Barr’s memories of events. There is an extremely detailed index that is NOT interactive in the Kindle version but it does have subcategories. The index on Donald Trump is multiple pages and can be enhanced by location, event or date and there are other well detailed entries.
There are 30 pictures included that you might miss in the Kindle edition. You need to flip to the “Photo Section” and click on the blue highlighted words. It takes a few seconds to access but my iPad Pro showed a small 2” x 3” photo, one per screen, some in color, some in sepia and others in black & white. They are a very interesting collection of Barr’s history in political service.
Seven plus months until the midterms are upon us. Life here in the USA is volatile while we watch the horrors being perpetrated by Putin upon the democracy of Ukraine. The stock market is tumbling; gas, oil, food and durable goods are rising too fast for most folks to manage and talk of recession is no longer an occasional whisper.
While this isn’t an hard hitting, investigative volume, Barr’s memoir is an opportunity for concerned citizens to have a view of what went right and what most definitely did not prior to our next opportunity to have our voices heard”
am usually left thinking they weren’t revealing, witty or interesting.
That is definitely not the case here. What a great book! It is a wonderful
read from beginning to end. This book answers many questions and it provides
great insight into all the administrations he served in, especially the Trump
Bill Barr is a man of true consequence both
professionally and as a human being. His observations and comments
about President Trump are fair. Whether you like or dislike President Trump,
It is clear Bill Barr gave the best advice possible at all times, but he
would not sacrifice his integrity for anyone. or to fit any narrative.
I highly recommend this book. It is also very well written, coherent and it
flows beautifully. His dry wit is everywhere. Get it. You won’t be sorry.”
