LET’S START WITH THE JAN 6TH HEARING:
Readers know I consider the hearing begun yesterday on the Jan. 6th riot at the Capital is a sham. I see this as Pelosi and the liberal MSM playing off the day, while they completely disregard the riots, looting, murders and impact from the summer riots in our cities.
I ask again, why is one more important than the other? One person died in Washington, a Trump supporter, shot by authorities. No building burned. No businesses destroyed.
Other than that this was close to them, why is it so different it needs a hearing and full time television cable? Why are congressmen crying over this as they talk to police while they did nothing as police were defunded, abused, spit on, had urine thrown on them and feces at them? This hearing angers me for the sham it is.
Here’s how one liberal site wrote up the day.
“Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) warned at the start of Tuesday’s Jan. 6 committee hearing that a ‘cancer’ will remain in America unless everyone involved in the planning of the Capitol attack is called to testify and held accountable.”
|As the House’s Jan. 6 committee opened its hearings, carried live on TV around the world, four officers gave raw, emotional testimony that was shocking even to people who had closely followed coverage of the riot. |
Here’s what the officers said:
D.C. Police Officer Daniel Hodges: “The sea of people was punctuated throughout by flags — mostly variations of American flags and Trump flags. … I saw the Christian flag directly to my front, and another had ‘Jesus is my savior, Trump is my president.'”
D.C. Police Officer Michael Fanone said he was “grabbed, beaten, tased, all while being called a traitor to my country.”
Capitol Police Sgt. Aquilino Gonell, an Army veteran who served in Iraq, said on Jan. 6 he was “more afraid to work at the Capitol than in my entire deployment.”
“The rioters called me traitor, a disgrace, and shouted that I, an Army veteran and a police officer, should be executed.
“Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn, a Black man, said several rioters called him a “f–king n—–” after he said he voted for President Biden in response to protesters claiming no one voted for him. Dunn said he continues to get counseling: “Jan. 6 still isn’t over for me.”
|Is all this deplorable and wrong? Of course it is. We all condemn it and condemn any part any politician, including former President Trump played in it occurring. |
However, it was no different and in fact less, than the police had to face in the riots over the summer. Where were these liberals then? Where was the police support? Where was the outrage? They did the opposite. They supported defunding and condemning police. How dare they think when it’s their house it matters, but not when it’s yours or mine.
I condemn them and this sham hearing. They all matter, and every politician who incited one or failed to condemn one should be held accountable by the voters.
The problem, as always, is the media will cover this as if Jan. 6th was the only problem. You see it’s like that old saying. One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. For the media, the people of Jan. 6th were the terrorists and the people of the summer were freedom fighters.
For me they were both terrorists, and if presented fairly I know most Americans would agree.
A FORMER SENATOR MUGGED
Last week Governor Newsom insisted that crime in California was going down. Yup, that’s why they’re losing population for the first time in their history. Everything is great in California, Governor.
Back to Boxer. A liberal senator for 24 years, she purposefully walked on a “quiet street” so she could concentrate on a work call.
“The driver of the car jumped out and started to come at me and come behind me,” she said.
“When I saw the guy coming out of the car, coming at me, I started to run away across the street. And he shoved me really, really hard on the shoulder with one hand, and with the other, he put it around my waist and grabbed my phone.”
“He ran toward the car I was standing and shaking and I just said to them, ‘Why would you do that to a grandmother? I need to call my grandkids.”
“He jumped in the car and sped away.”
Poor Barbara Boxer, the mugger did not care she was elderly and had grandchildren. Well when they find him, and they will, after all her mugging is more important than if it were you or I, she will learn he has a long record. He was in the street because of policies she supported. Will that change here attitude?
Of course not. She told The LA Times that the narrative that Democratic politicians want to defund police is “a false flag. It’s just untrue.”
Really, Senator? Who are those politicians masquerading as Democrats then?
