  • House January 6 Committee Is Failing but Doesn't Know Why

    Moseley to Alberta's Child

    “The function of the Vice President (as President of the Senate) is to COUNT the electoral votes that have already been certified.

    Anyone who thinks the VP of the United States has the authority to unilaterally reject even a single electoral vote is delusional.”

    The strawman is “unilaterally reject”

    the US Constitution 12th Amendment, 20th Amendment, and 3 USC 1 through 20

    REQUIRE disputes about the legitimacy of Electors to be addressed and resolved by the U.S. House of Representatives.

    The gag here is the trick of saying Pence would “UNILATERALLY” or on his own initiative or whim accept or reject anything.

    Nobody asked him to do that.

    Nobody suggested that Pence do that.

    There are elaborate procedures — multiple pathways — for the legitimacy the Electors in the Electoral College to be dhallenged and disputes resolved.

    As the presiding officer of the Joint Session, Vice President Mike Pence was

    R E Q U I R E D

    to use and administer those procedures fully and completely.

    Not just he could.

    He was REQUIRED TO to fulfill his Constitutional duties.

    But not based on his own personal whim. That is a fake straw man argument.

    Our Constitution gives the power to choose the Electors of the Electoral College EXCLUSIVELY to each State Legislature.

    Not to any other part of the State government.

    Only to the legislature.

    If a slate of electors is “certified” by the Governor, and the State LEGISLATURE says “Naw, we don’t think so,” the certification evaporates into dust in thin air.

    The only correct constitutional method is for the State legislature to have 100% exclusive control at every stage of the process.

    Remember that under our original Constitution, that’s how Senators were chosen. U.S. Senators were appointed by the State legislatures.

    That’s how the election of the President works.

    But Pence was too uninformed to know what his duties were.

    Second, the left-wing conspiracy theory of a January 6 "insurrection" could work only if people don't think about it too much. The public hearings make the fundamental mistake of getting the American people to actually focus on and think about this. The more people pay attention, the more it has dawned on or soon will dawn on them that the narrative makes no sense.

    The voters are smart enough to remember that Liz Cheney became a congresswoman because in 2000, in Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. 98 (2000), her father, Dick Cheney, and George W. Bush fought like hell to "Stop the Steal" of the 2000 presidential election. Thousands of pompous, better-than-you Bushies owe their credentials in government to Bush and Cheney refusing to step aside and just let the Democrats steal the White House. These hypocrites now fall on their fainting couches, clutching their string of pearls, moaning, "That just isn't done! Oh, the democracy of it all!" Yet they did it. And thank God.

    The January 6 conspiracy theory depends upon hoping nobody remembers the violent riots, always from the left, including the "Battle in Seattle" in 1999; the 2014 arson and riots in Ferguson, Missouri; the civil war throughout 2020; etc.Democrats called for Trump's impeachment before he even took office. The "Women's March" protested Trump in vile terms the day after he was sworn in.

    Third, Team Trump believed that with a flawed election, the vice president had the authority to send the Electoral College votes of problem states back to each state Legislature to ask, "Are you sure?" But Democrats wave a straw man that Trump wanted Pence to directly decide the winner, to decide the next president. That wasn't the question at all.

    It is the state legislatures who decide the Electoral College electors pursuant to Article II, Section 1. Not the vice president. Not the governor. Not the state courts. Not election officials. See Pherson v. Blacker, 146 U.S. 1, 27, 13 S.Ct. 3, 36 L.Ed. 869 (1892). In our history, state legislatures have canceled popular elections and declared the electors themselves.

    In 2000, the Florida Legislature was warming up to toss out the 2000 popular election — as fatally flawed — and directly appoint electors for George W. Bush and Liz Cheney's father. (See James, "Election 2000: Florida Legislature Faces Own Disputes over Electors," Wall Street Journal, Dec. 11, 2000, p. A16 [cited in Bush v. Gore] and Joni James, "Florida's Senate Adjourns Without Naming Electors," Wall Street Journal, Dec. 15, 2000, p. A6.) This had nothing to do with Pence deciding who the president would be.

  • January 6 House Committee repeats Trump ‘Stand by, Proud Boys’ myth

    Moseley to Moseley

    Notice how Trump calls this a “problem.” Trump makes clear he is being asked to “condemn” someone. “Who do you want me to condemn?” Trump asks. Trump says, “I want to see peace.”

    Thus, the oft-repeated allegation is knowingly false. There is no indication that Trump was ever thinking about the Proud Boys. When Joe Biden suggested that Donald Trump should condemn the Proud Boys and tell them to stand down, Donald Trump agreed… but only after Joe Biden chose the target.

    In the video, Trump visibly hesitates before asking “What do you want to call them? Give me a name. …” indicating that he doesn’t know specifically who Chris Wallace is talking about.

    The following day, Trump explained to the news media:

    JOE BIDEN: “Say it. Do it. Say it.”

    DONALD TRUMP: [pause, thinking] “What do you want to call them? Give me a name. Give me a name. Go ahead and who do you want me to condemn?”

    CHRIS WALLACE: “White supremacists and right-wing militias”

    JOE BIDEN: “Proud Boys”

    DONALD TRUMP: “Proud Boys… Stand back and stand by. But I’ll tell you what, somebody’s got to do something about Antifa and the left because this is not a right-wing problem. This is a left-wing problem.”

    Ukrainians in Ukraine and in the U.S. State Department and Western capital blaming “THE RUSSIANS”

    is NO different from Putin claiming that there are Nazis in Ukraine.

    The Ukrainian war monger faction is no more living in the real world than Putin saying he is freeing Ukraine of Nazis.

    “The starving Ukrainian did not slap hinself on the forehead and say “ It’s not being done by the RussianS it’s being done by a Georgian following a Austro-German economic system!”

    Well, it sure wasn’t “the Russians.”

    It was the Marxists, a system literally installed from Germany and Austria in a revolution paid for by the German Kaiser to try to win World War I by getting Russia out of World War I.

    “I was in Kiev soon after the fall of the USSR they blame Holodomor on the Russians!”

    Yeah, me too.


    That irrational bigotry is no different from the Irish Republican Army engaging in a guerilla war of terrorism in Northern Ireland.

    The false, idiotic, and irrational hatred of blaming “Russians” for what the Soviet Marxists did

    “WHY NATO? Why is it NATO’s job to defend their existence?”

    You raise a good point.

    This is NOT about Ukraine “joining” NATO.

    It is about obligating NATO countries to GO TO WAR for Ukraine or any other member country.

    It’s not just about joining a club.

    And since NATO is a worthless paper tiger — they have lethal military equipment but social justice warriors instead of soldiers — that means the United States has to fight the wars.

    NATO will bring the hash tags and announce their pronouns to the Russian army, then apologize for their privilege and lay down their arms and surrender because they don’t deserve to win.

    Ukraine joining NATO means the USA goes to war.

    And it means the USA going to war 100% certain because the hotheads trying to inflame this war have no restraint and will guarantee a war, either the current one or a future one.

    So Ukraine joining NATO is 100% certainty that the United States will go to war with a nuclear-armed enemy.

    Gets what?

    That a country like a person can blow themselves up and commit suicide?

    You COULD drive drunk the wrong way down the highway at 120 MPH.

    Sure you could.

    And you’d have to take responsibility for doing that, not the oncoming care driving properly in its own lane.

    But did the warmongers pushing Ukraine into NATO result in this destructive war?

    You betcha.

    “I would say Stalin by starving to death 3.5 to 4 million Ukrainians due to his forced farm collectivization program severed any brotherly Slav feelings that the Ukrainians might have for the Russians.”

    Stalin was not a Russian.

    You just admitted the core problem here of the war-mongers, can’t-let-the-Cold-War-die and Ukrainian version of the Irish Republican Army.

    The Russians did not starve anyone.

    The Marxists did, led by a GEORGIAN.

    When I worked in politically opposing the Soviet Union, any time anyone talked about “THE RUSSIANS” they were sternly rebuked by government officials and experts alike: “IT’S THE SOVIETS, NOT THE RUSSIANS.”

    Any time anyone talked about “Russia” they were sternly warned by government officials and foreign policy experts: “ITS THE SOVIET UNION, NOT RUSSIA.”

    The continual infantile hatred of Russia and Russians is why we now have a hot war.

    The Ukrainians who ran the Soviet government along with the RUssians, Georgians, etc., etc., who ran the Soviet government are every bit as much to blame for the Ukrainian famine.

    The Ukrainian version of the Northern Ireland terrorists are the #1 problem in our relationships with Russia after the Soviet Union collapsed.

    Marxism is a German / Austrian system.

    The German Kaiser literally financed the Marxist revolution in order to knock the RUssian army out of World War I, by sending Lenin to St. Petersburg on a “sealed train” with crates of gold.

    Anyone who confuses “THE SOVIETS” with “RUSSIANS” is a part of the problem, and the largest part of the problem.

    And the country of Latvia could declare war on Russia if they want.

    The consequences of that decision would be the end of the country.

    But they could do it.

    The exercise of a country’s sovereignty in an act of self-destructive suicide is not a principle worth pursuing.

    These suggestions are not actionable because of the deficiencies in U.S. leadership.

    But they are instructive in trying to understand why our leaders are so unacceptably pathetic and we must have better leaders, by looking at what could be done.

    But, on the other hand, reality is reality. Western leaders helped create this mess. Many books need to be written. But no matter how much America First conservatives may hate it, the facts are that we are in a mess. We should either cease and desist and let Russian invaders take over Ukraine quickly and easily with a minimum of loss of life...or take genuine action.

    Here is what the USA should do:

    1) The USA should demand a vote within NATO that Ukraine will never join. Historically, Russia and Ukraine were the same country for 1,100 years. NATO membership was always a deliberate, insane provocation motivated by hatred for Russia.

    2) Ukraine is a sovereign country despite being part of Russia since 917 A.D. International ships have a right to dock, refuel, visit, and enjoy shore leave in the port of Odessa if allowed by the government of Ukraine. The U.S. Navy should respond to an invitation to dock in the port of Odessa, refuel, resupply, and let sailors enjoy shore leave, of course armed for their own protection. Every ship internationally has that right to dock at a port if invited by the country owning that port. Putin cannot fire in the direction of U.S. naval vessels. And the ships have an international maritime right to dock there.

    But, you will say, this is a risk. Yes. Like JFK, it needs to be handled extremely carefully. It must be done with transparent advance warning and open lines of communication. (Can Slow Joe handle that? No.)

    Curiously, the prosecutors claim in their motion to revoke bail that “In a Telegram message following the attack, the defendant stated, ‘That was NOT what I expected to happen today. All from us showing up and starting some chants and getting the normies all riled up.’” As a supposed organizer, Rehl was surprised at what actually happened.

    Zachary Rehl has been in jail since mid-March although presumed innocent ahead of trial. Rehl is a former U.S. Marine, whose father and grandfather were respected police officers in Pennsylvania. His newborn child was born while he was in jail. His wife diligently brings the baby to see Zachary Rehl in jail a couple of times a week. The family is struggling with the loss of Zach’s monthly income and his young wife is negotiating with the mortgage company for a forbearance on their modest rowhouse.

    The family is expecting legal bills totaling at least $75,000. The new mother has to struggle without Zachary Rehl’s income. The family is asking for help at

    Rehl has also been sued in a civil lawsuit for the same issues. Rehl’s attorney confirms that the government is trying to get everyone accused to ‘cave’ and testify against others, including high-profile political figures such as Donald Trump, Rudy Guiliani, and Roger Stone.

    An expensive technical consultant had to be hired to enhance the audio on another video, which shows Rehl (on the left in the green hunting cap) and other protesters undecided about whether to enter the Capitol as late as around 2:45 PM:

    That was not an experiment, because it was poorly designed to test a carefully crafted experiment.

    If we are talking about the same incident, the test was for THREE (3) — ONLY 3 locations on Earth.

    ONE could not be conducted due to clouds

    ONE gave negative results (no deflection of starlight from the sun’s gravity)

    ONE gave positive results (a star appeared to be in a shifted location right next to the sun).

    1 out of 3 supported the hypothesis.

    Put another way, 1 DISPROVED the hypothesis.

    And the fact that it could not be repeated is a flaw.

    However, in a sense, it was a comparison experiment.

    The position of the star was measured
    -— WITHOUT the sun being nearby
    -— WITH the sun being nearby.

    So this was a comparison with a control (”group”).

    But given the lack of accuracy of the measurements and the likelihood of other influences — like the atmosphere — it was a flawed design.

    When the eclipse shadow passes over, it is going to radically cool the atmosphere compared to only seconds earlier. There is going to be a turbulence wave moving just behind the shadow as the shadow travels across the Earth.

    So the experiment fails to rule out other influences likely to shift the position of the star in the measurements lacking in sufficient accuracy.

    I don’t mean accuracy in the ability to take a reading.

    I mean accuracy in terms of being immune to various other influences, wind, shaking of the ground, etc., turbulence in the air, etc.

    The accuracy of the measurement IN CONTEXT was not equal to the task.
