1/6 Committee

A reminder for those who are not interested in finding the truth -

"The president bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding...And a fact-finding commission would be prudent."
 -- Rep. Kevin McCarthy, January 13, 2021

I hope this Committee can keep this serious, and objective, and decline the  all too typical "sound bite" school of congressional committees.  It's almost all Dems, may they avoid the cheap shots no matter how tempting, the subject matter is too serious for that.

It might also liven up PA, which has been running at clutch speed without the Donald on daily twit fest.

That was because your boy Shitstain ordered the DC Guard to hold back and the now departed Sergeants at Arms ordered the Capitol Police not to use deadly force. Bit of a difference between that and say BLM protesting at the Lincoln Memorial which is not the center of American government. It's almost like your boy wanted this to happen. Oh right, he sent the crowd:

The hearing is barely a blip on the Faux News website.  And the headline is "Pelosi's Handpicked Committee Starts Hearing".  Fuck anyone who supports TFG and still thinks they "back the blue".

Eric Boehlert: Can the media Both Sides an insurrection? They're gonna try

Downplaying GOP coverup 
Eric Boehlert 
1 hr ago

But the press is doing its best to portray the investigation as a partisan event, featuring sniping from Both Sides. (A feud!) “Jan. 6 Select Committee to Open Investigation Amid Political Chaos and Controversy,” read a Washington Post headline on Sunday, insisting a “cloud” hung over the proceedings.  

“What terrible, inaccurate framing,” tweeted Cornell University professor of American history Larry Glickman. “The story is not the supposed “cloud” but that the GOP has done everything possible to stonewall an investigation. Stop obfuscating GOP responsibility.” 

snip// 

CNN’s Chris Cillizza threw up his hands, announcing the House select committee’s final report was already useless because Pelosi wouldn’t allow two pro-insurrection Republicans to serve on the panel. (Should the 9/11 Commission have included 9/11 Truthers on the panel?) 

In truth, the GOP pullout means the crucial inquiry will be free from internal attempts to derail, delay, and obfuscate by the members hand-picked by McCarthy to expressly prevent a clear accounting. If journalists cared about the investigation itself instead of they shallow optics surrounding it, they wouldn’t have been so distraught by the news Republicans wanted out. 

snip// 

In an effort to push the Both Sides narrative and to give credence to the GOP’s phony outrage, the press also overlooked a key fact. In May, Republicans in the U.S. Senate voted overwhelmingly not to support the creation of an elite, independent Jan. 6 commission, akin to the one that delved into the 9/11 attacks. In blocking the common-sense move by the Senate to sponsor a truly bipartisan investigation, Republicans knew that Pelosi and Democrats would then create a House select committee, and they knew Pelosi would have final say over which Republicans served. None of that was a surprise. 

By ignoring that key context though, the press perpetuated GOP rhetoric that Pelosi had “stunned” members. 

Republicans are trying to cover-up the origins and blame for some of the most dangerous political violence in this country’s history, and the media are helping.

Duh.....
Why was the NG told to stay away?  Did any of the bad guys have inside help?  Why were RWNJ congresspeople giving tours to the bad guys days before?  Who knew what and when are pretty good places to start.

Yeah, Jeff was doing this with his blaming DC Mayor Bowser for sending a letter saying she wanted DC to be kept in the loop for something happening in DC. That was clearly egregiously worse than Shitstain ordering the DC Guard to be stood down. The blood was equally on Boswer's hands.

There's also this nonsense.


House GOP blames Pelosi — not Trump — for Jan. 6

And fuck anyone who watches Faux "News" - they are complicit it all of this.

Morons or fascists - who cares? They amount to the same thing.

They are doing just that.  Over 500 minions so far.  But those rednecks didn't organize, advertise, pay for or direct this spontaneously.  It's time to move up the ladder.
