In The News: Nancy Pelosi Rejects Trump Ass-Kissing Senators From Jan. 6 Committee Investigation

FeaturedIn The News: Nancy Pelosi Rejects Trump Ass-Kissing Senators From Jan. 6 Committee Investigation

House minority leader Kevin McCarthy appointed Representatives Jim Jordan and Jim Banks to the January 06 insurrection probe. They were promptly rejected by House speaker Nancy Pelosi for their involvement in inciting conspiracy theories regarding the 2020 election.

The probe had been in the works for some time but had been blocked by Republicans in both the House and Senate. On June 28, Pelosi announced the formation of the committee, and on June 30 a resolution was passed to form the committee by a vote of 222 to 190.

Wednesday, Pelosi rejected the appointments of the two Representatives by McCarthy, to which McCarthy referred to as an egregious abuse of power.

In a press release Wednesday, Pelosi said:

“The violent domestic attack on Congress on January 6th was the worst assault on the Capitol since the war of 1812, and the worst domestic assault on American democracy since the Civil War. We are facing a radically new threat in the kinds of forces that combined to attack our government on January 6th. The future of our democracy is on the line. This assault was an attempt to overthrow the government…

“Monday evening, the Minority leader recommended 5 members to serve on the Select Committee. I have spoken with him this morning about the objections raised about Rep’s Jim Banks and Jim Jordan and the impact their appointments may have on the integrity of the investigation. I also informed him I was prepared to appoint Rep’s Rodney Davis, Kelly Armstrong, and Troy Nehls and requested that he recommend two other members.

“With respect to the integrity of the investigation, with an insistence on the truth and with concern about statements made and actions taken by these members, I must reject the recommendation of Rep’s Banks and Jordan to the Select Committee.”

Kevin McCarthy responded with his own statement:

“Speaker Nancy Pelosi has taken the unprecedented step of denying the minority party’s picks for the Select Committee on January 6. This represents an egregious abuse of power and will irreparably damage this institution. Denying the voices of members who have served in the military and law enforcement, as well as leaders of standing committees, has made it undeniable that this panel has lost all legitimacy and credibility and shows the Speaker is more interested in playing politics than seeking the truth.

“Unless speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees, Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts.”

It’s ironic that McCarthy would accuse Pelosi and Democrats of playing partisan politics regarding an investigation of the events surrounding January 06, when not too long ago McCarthy and his anti-American Trump ass-kissing troglodytes in Congress were busy playing their own partisan games regarding a “stolen” election which Trump insisted that he won by a landslide, which ultimately led to a mob of Trump ass-kissing fascist troglodytes storming the Capitol as they attempted to overturn that election through violence, and their own sham investigations, audits and new voting laws to “preserve voting integrity.”

Fellow Trump ass-kisser Jim Banks had this to say in a previous statement in response to being chosen for the committee by McCarthy:

“If Democrats were serious about investigating political violence, this committee would be studying not only the January 6 riot at the Capitol, but also the hundreds of violent political riots last summer when many more innocent Americans and law enforcement were attacked. And of course, the committee would not overlook the Good Friday murder of USCP officer Billy Evans that was perpetrated by a far-left extremist.

“Make no mistake, Nancy Pelosi created this committee solely to malign conservatives and to justify the Left’s authoritarian agenda.

“Even then, I will do everything possible to give the American people the facts about the lead up to January 6, the riot that day, and the responses from Capitol leadership and the Biden administration. (??) I will not allow this committee to be turned into a forum for condemning millions of Americans because of their political views.”

Those “facts” mentioned by Banks, probably include how Antifa really perpetrated the assault. God knows Trump supporters are all wonderful patriots with the utmost respect for free speech, and fair elections, and it’s a shame they’re all being falsely condemned for their political views.

What Banks fails to understand is that the summer protests, some of which had turned violent, were in response to state violence perpetrated by law enforcement, that further exacerbated the situation, by police being deliberately violent against peaceful protesters, some of which were killed by both police and anti-BLM vigilantes. The Capitol riot, on the other hand, was a response to false claims of election fraud, incited and perpetrated by the former president and his sycophantic supporters in Congress and media.

His press release statement after being rejected from the committee, reads:

“I’m a sitting member of Congress and served my country in Afghanistan and the speaker knows how hard I will fight for my country. We said all along that this was a purely partisan exercise by the Democrats and Nancy Pelosi’s rejection of me and Jim Jordan shows once again she is the most partisan figure in America today.”

“The American people deserve the truth. Unfortunately, Speaker Pelosi is afraid of the facts.”

I don’t care whether he served in the military or not. That doesn’t excuse the fact that he failed in his duty to protect the Constitution. His duty was to secure a fair election, not to promote false claims and conspiracy theories. He, and his fellow Trump ass-kissing troglodytes, should be tried for seditious conspiracy for failing to uphold their oath to protect the Constitution from domestic enemies, and barred from Congress. They betrayed the Constitution the moment they voted to overturn the election results.

He says the Democrats are afraid of the facts. But it was the Trump loyalists who opposed a January 06 commission that Pelosi and the Democrats proposed. They opposed it because they wanted it to include investigations into racial justice protests, to which Pelosi refused, wanting the commission to focus solely on the Capitol riot.

They also opposed it because they knew that it would make the party look bad. Republicans are not interested in making themselves look bad, even though they can’t help but do just that through their actions. Their only interest besides owning the libs, is making themselves look like victims, and they play up that narrative with their constant culture war nonsense, their cancel culture BS, while simultaneously playing up the narrative that it’s really the Democratic party that is un-American, while the real America-loving patriotic party does everything in it’s power to shred the Constitution and destroy democracy – to restrict the right to vote, to protest peacefully, to ban Critical Race Theory from being taught, and to criminalize abortion.

In The News This Week: Capitol Police Knew Potential For Violence Before January 06

In The News This Week: Capitol Police Knew Potential For Violence Before January 06

The potential for violence during the certification of Joe Biden on January 06 is the subject of a new report. The Capitol Police Inspector general, Michael Bolton, released a scathing report criticizing his agency, saying that leaders received warnings that Trump supporters were a threat to civilians and law enforcement, but we’re not equipped to handle the violent extremists.

The inspector general’s report – over one hundred pages – criticizes how the Capitol Police prepared and responded to the Capitol Hill mob on that day in early January.

Three days before the event, Capitol Police intelligence had warned of the potential for violence from Trump supporters, many of whom believed his insane claims and conspiracies of a stolen election from the greatest president ever known. Some of these supporters are alleged to have posted a map of the Capitol’s tunnel system on pro-Trump websites.

“Unlike previous post-election protests, the targets of the pro-Trump supporters are not necessarily the counter-protesters, as they were previously, but rather Congress itself is the target on the 6th,” the threat assessment read according to the inspector’s report. “Stop the Steal’s propensity to attract white supremacists, militia members, and others who actively promote violence may lead to a significantly dangerous situation to law enforcement and the public alike.”

According to the report, the agency received warning about how Trump’s extremist supporters “were growing increasingly desperate” as he promoted lies about election fraud.

“Supporters of the current president see January 06, 2021 as the last opportunity to overturn the results of the presidential election. This sense of desperation, and disappointment may lead to more of an incentive to become violent.”

On December 21, the DHS warned CP of comments found on a pro-Trump website promoting attacks against Congressional members, including a map of the Capitol’s tunnel system. Among the comments included, “Bring guns. It’s now or never.” “We can’t give them a choice. Overwhelming armed numbers are our only chance.”

According to the New York Times, other social media comments included, “Be read to fight. Congress needs to hear breaking glass, doors being kicked in, and blood from their BLM and Pantifa slave soldiers being spilled. Get violent, stop calling this a march, or a rally, or a protest. Go there ready for war. We get our president or we die. Nothing else will achieve this goal.”

“None of the intelligence we received predicted what actually occured,” the former Capitol Police chief, Steven Sund testified in February before the Senate. “These criminals came prepared for war.”

Capitol riot: NY Post says MAGA Rioters Were Treated Worse Than BLM Protesters – Really!

Capitol riot: NY Post says MAGA Rioters Were Treated Worse Than BLM Protesters – Really!

https://www.foxnews.com/media/ny-post-editorial-board-liberal-amnesia-past-violence-left

A Capitol Hill rioter being met with “deadly force” by police.

According to Rupert Murdoch’s fake news “tabloid” The NY Post, liberals are suffering from “amnesia” about last summers protests when leftist mobs became violent for no reason, and decided to rampage across the country and “burn down” every major city in America.

What every liberal media pundit has forgotten, according to the Post, is how hypocritical they are – it’s always the libs who are hypocritical, never conservatives – how permissive they were, how complicit they were in the violence that occured during those protests, which they will forever refer to as “riots.”

What set off the editorial staff at the Post was the statement by Joe Biden who questioned how the rioters would have been treated had they been Black Lives Matter protesters.

Joe Biden
@Joe Biden

“No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesters yesterday, that they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob that stormed the Capitol,” he tweeted. “We all know that’s true – and it’s unacceptable.”

The tweet prompted a totally ironic response from the Post, attempting to set him straight, but managing to make themselves look foolish in the the process.

“Mr. Biden, don’t hypocritically try to rewite the story of last summer’s riots to suggest that liberals weren’t permissive or that there’s some sort of double standard of racism at work here,” the Post editorial staff wrote. “We all saw what happened then, we all saw what happened now. Across the country, BLM and Antifa were coddled. Portland allowed them to set up an autonomous zone in the middle of the city for months, and police and politicians did nothing. In liberal cities, politicians told cops to back off and pushed for more lawbreakers to be released without bail or no charges. The thugs who attacked the Capitol were met with officers fighting back at barricades and tear gas. Guns were drawn and in one case deadly force was used. The rioters were able to get the run of the Capitol because cops were vastly outnumbered. Officials are already resigning or being fired because of that failure. This was a horrible insurrection and should be condemned.”

Conservatives are without self-awareness. They are incapable of any self-reflection. They are the ones who are attempting to rewrite last summers protests that liberals were not permissive of. And there is, to an extent, a double standard of racism. Despite the fact that a “safe zone” was set up in Seattle – which doesn’t mean shit – Black Lives Matter were nowhere near coddled. Anyone who saw the footage, or watched the protests as they happened live, as peacefull protesters were beaten, brutalized, maced, tear gassed, and shot at – know that this claim is 100% bullshit.

A part of the actual “amnesia” here, is that AG Bill Barr wanted to prosecute Seattle Mayor, Jenny Durkin for allowing a police-free zone, and he also encouraged federal prosecutors to charge BLM protesters with sedition! Durkin’s response was: “This is an act of tyranny, not democracy. This is not about me. It is about how this president and his AG are willing to subvert the law and use the DOJ for political purposes. It is particularly egregious to try and use civil rights laws to investigate, intimidate, or deter those who are fighting for civil rights in our country.”

But according to conservatives, the authorities walked on eggshells around BLM during the entire protests for fear of upsetting them. There was no deadly force used against the BLM protesters. They were completely “coddled,” and pampered by the police and the government.

So, apparently Donald Trump allowed the Mob to rampage across the country, “burning down entire cities” according to the narrative of so many conservatives. Portland was left in ruins, as was Seattle, according to concervatives.

The real deadly force was used against the “real patriots” who stormed the Capitol. Yeah, we saw the deadly force that was used against these guys, alright. The deadly force that was used against the rioters by opening barricades and doors, allowing them to enter. The “deadly force” that was employed against rioters as they were allowed to roam the halls of Congress and the Capitol. The “deadly force” that was used against those rioters that were taking selfies with police officers. The “deadly force” that was used against the rioters who invaded the senate, and made themselves at home. The “deadly force” that was used against the rioters who beat cops, killing one of them in the process.

Deadly force, my ass! Give me a fucking break. Anyone who claims that BLM protesters were “coddled” and the Capitol hill rioters were not, are lying for their own purposes, and anyone dumb enough to buy it, are total morons.

More rioters met with “deadly force” at the Capitol.

Joe Biden was 100% right here. If these people had been BLM protesters, anti-fascist blue and pink-haired college leftists, they would have definitely been met with “deadly force,” and the police would not have been “vastly outnumbered.”

The only “amnesia,” and media flip-flopping on whether protests “should be frowned upon according to one’s agenda,” going on here, is coming from conservatives. They can stick their “coddled” BS.
