  • Why the Left Cannot Let Go of Jan. 6

    "Every Day Is Jan. 6 Now." That was the headline over the editorial of 1,000 words in The New York Times of Sunday last. On first read, I thought the Times was conceding its obsession and describing its mission. For the editorial began by bewailing yet anew the "horrifying" event, "the very real bloodshed of that awful day," the "once-unthinkable trauma." Still, a year later, said the Times, "the Republic faces an existential threat," as the "Capitol riot ... continues in statehouses across the country, in a bloodless, legalized form that no police officer can arrest and that no prosecutor...

    Source: Screenshot via CNNYes, the January 6th“insurrection” is real.Oh, not the riotous behavior at the U.S. Capitol a year ago. I mean the one today… January 6, 2022. When MSNBC, CNN, The Washington Post and other alleged “news” organizations make Third Reich propaganda queen Leni Reifenstahl look like a piker by comparison as they roll out hour after hour of hysterical, hand-wringing coverage of events last January. Nazi films like “Triumph of the Will” giving way to shaky cellphone images of the Q-Anon Shaman in that dumb Viking hat and ominous, Darth Vader music.Not since the canonization of George Floyd...
  • Meadows sues Pelosi, Jan. 6 panel members as contempt vote looms

    Former Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows filed a lawsuit Wednesday seeking to invalidate subpoenas issued by the House select committee examining the Jan. 6 Capitol riot after the panel’s chair informed Meadows’ attorney it would move forward with contempt proceedings. The Meadows complaint, first reported by Politico, names Pelosi and the committee’s nine members as defendants, along with the committee itself. The suit describes the subpoenas for documents and testimony issued to Meadows in September as “overly broad and unduly burdensome”. “The Select Committee acts absent any valid legislative power and threatens to violate longstanding principles of...

    Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that the Houde Select Committee investigating the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 had accumulated a “significant amount of very telling evidence.” Anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “275 witnesses, I mean, you guys haven’t subpoenaed people who don’t know anything. You’ve subpoenaed the people who were closest to the ex-president, the people who ran his campaign, and the people who gathered the insurrectionists in Washington. Marc Short is a perfect example. We looked up, and we remember that he was — Trump was so mad at him, he was banned...

    First thing's first: Nancy Pelosi's select committee probing the January 6th Capitol riot is a political animal. It became one the second that Nancy Pelosi vetoed Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's choices of Republicans to serve on the panel. Pelosi made it clear: only Trump-haters were welcome in this “bipartisan” endeavor. Otherwise, there would be a danger that the select committee might actually think critically about what happened on January 6th, and the Left's narrative about an “insurrection” might be damaged or discredited. Crazy Nancy was having none of that. It has been clear from the start that the select committee...
  • January 6 panel moves to hold Steve Bannon in criminal contempt

    CNN)The committee investigating the January 6 Capitol Hill riot announced Thursday it is moving forward to hold Trump ally Steve Bannon in criminal contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena, as his game of chicken with the House panel now enters a new and critical phase. "Mr. Bannon has declined to cooperate with the Select Committee and is instead hiding behind the former President's insufficient, blanket, and vague statements regarding privileges he has purported to invoke," Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson, who chairs the committee, said in a statement on Thursday. Bannon was scheduled for a deposition in front of...

    Democrats comparing the Capitol Protests to the horrors of 9/11/01 and accusing patriotic Americans of being threats and terrorists is pathetic, dangerous and belies their long patronage to terrorist enemies of our county. They conveniently forget that theCapitol was attacked by theMarxist Weather Underground in 1971 and in 1954 ya Puerto Rican Revolutionary group, pre-curser to the Rican Armed Forces for National Liberation (“FALN”). I was an eye witness to the carnage of 9/11, the murder of cousin Steve Schlag and 3,000 other innocent souls. January 6 was nothing like those meticulously planned attacks on civilians them when hundreds jumped...

    To understand what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's select committee investigation of the Capitol Hill events of Jan. 6 is all about, a good place to begin is with the sentencing hearing last week of Paul Hodgkins. A crane operator from Tampa, Florida, Hodgkins, 38, pleaded guilty to a single count of obstructing a joint session of Congress called to confirm Joe Biden as the next president. Hodgkins entered the Senate chamber carrying a Trump 2020 flag. He committed no assault, no act of destruction, no act of violence. Yet, he was sentenced to eight months in prison by U.S. Judge...

    Menstrual America has gained the upper hand. Feminized America has been on display in all her undignified inauthenticity, in the crybabies of Congress and in the loud and proud quitting at the 2020 Olympics. In Menstrual America, medals go to congressmen and cops who wail the loudest when recounting their professional failings on Jan. 6, 2021. And props are given not to athletes who “bring it” despite the jitters; but to those who crumble and quit, and then crow about the authenticity of it all. Menstrual America’s rich and famous belong to a fraternity of foolish, showy killjoys. They take...
  • Jan. 6 Was Deplorable. It Was Not a Coup

    When several hundred extremists mobbed Capitol Hill on Jan. 6, they engaged in a deplorably un-American act of criminality. It was an embarrassing day for the nation, and a dangerous one for the many innocent people and officials engulfed in the mayhem. Here's what Jan. 6 wasn't: It wasn't the "worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War." Nor did it veer anywhere near the vicinity of being as dangerous as 9/11. Nor was it a "coup" or an "insurrection" -- not in any way we commonly understand those words. It wasn't a "putsch." Nor did it, as the...

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and a group of Republican conservatives have struck a deal to allow a Friday vote on a bill setting up a bipartisan Jan. 6 commission, which will let senators leave Washington for the Memorial Day recess early Friday afternoon. The deal, which was approved by the entire Senate after being hotlined, will postpone the final procedural votes and the final up-or-down vote on a bill to improve U.S. competitiveness with China until next month. But it means that Republicans won’t be able to delay consideration of the China bill into the holiday weekend, which...

    Senate Republicans on Friday blocked an independent, bipartisan commission to study the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.Eager to put the events of that day and former President Trump’s role in it behind them, Republicans blasted the commission proposal as a partisan attempt by Democrats to keep both in the news during next year’s pivotal midterm elections.The bill fell in the first legislative filibuster of the year as it failed to get the 60 votes needed to advance. The vote was 54 to 35 to move the bill forward, with a handful of Republicans breaking ranks — Sens. Mitt...

    Okay, let’s say out loud what the regime doesn’t want said – there was no insurrection. At least not in Washington, D.C. Now, in places like Portland and Seattle, there were and are insurrections, actual ongoing occupations of actual territory by actual criminals where the government is expressly told it’s not in charge and to stay out. And, of course, the government tolerates those insurrections. It does so because the Democrats in charge – this nonsense never happens in Florida with DeSantis in charge – perceives the actual insurrectionists as political allies, so they do nothing. Some insurrections, it appears,...

    On January 6, 2021, a massive outpouring of supporters of President Donald Trump descended on Washington D.C. for a rally. The president invited his supporters to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard” at the U.S. Capitol. It did not matter that he did not call for violence, Congress impeached him anyway. The crowd’s mission was not to burn down the U.S. Capitol or harm members of Congress. For the overwhelming majority of those in attendance, their goal was not to commit violence, but to persuade either Vice President Mike Pence or a majority of the members of Congress to...
