It’s January 6th
It’s January 6th and it’s the one day the left is for crime prevention and locking everyone up. It’s the one day they remember a crime was committed in 2021. It’s the day they say “lock them up.”
For me, a crime was committed on this day a year ago and I agree hold them accountable. But, there were hundreds of other riots last year and I want all those who broke in stores and businesses held accountable too. You see I call it a crime even if it is not in Washington DC and not a threat to congressional members.
What I see from Washington today is just more hypocrisy. Wrong is wrong, no matter where and when it happens. Destroying an office or place of work in Washington DC is no different than destroying a person’s business anywhere else.
Why are they allowed to make the DC event different? Because the media is supportive and on their side. Because this them and not you.
The AG (Garland) made a speech yesterday and called arresting Jan 6th rioters the “number 1 priority for the DOJ.” Really, this is your and the department’s number one priority? Take another look around the country, Mr Attorney General. There is much for you to do.
And by the way, why don’t you investigate why there was inadequate security that day. Why was additional support turned down? How about being a real AG and not a political animal? You want to investigate, then investigate it all.
You will hear all day that this was an “insurrection.” Oh really? Okay then, how many people have been charged with insurrection?
The answer is zero.
They charged people with crimes for entering and mistreating the police. The same charge they should have brought in the other 100+ riots.
And don’t forget the politics of all this. When is the panel’s report due? By the mid term elections. Get it?
While We’re On A Topic Of Different Treatment
Here’s two ways to run a government. In Chicago the teachers said we must be remote and walked out. Watch what happens. In fact they stayed out again today.
Now in Arizona they threatened to walk out too.
Here’s the reaction from the Governor:
Governor Doug Ducey has a message for the teacher unions in his state pushing for the shutdown of in-person learning in public schools: Don’t even think about it.
Governor Ducey announced he will allow eligible families to take their children’s education dollars elsewhere if their public school closes. Should schools close for even a single day due to COVID, families who meet income requirements ($66,000 income or less) would be eligible for up to $7,000 in child care, school-coordinated transportation, online tutoring, and school tuition.
Why isn’t this happening in Chicago, New York, Baltimore, and all over the country where teacher unions are unilaterally locking the doors of the schools? Check the political affiliation of the Mayors and Governors of those cities and states. There’s your answer.
With even the White House saying that schools should stay open shouldn’t every governor and mayor in America who truly cares about “the children” adopt the Arizona policy?
By the way, on Face The Nation last weekend CBS legal correspondent Jan Crawford was asked what was the most underreported story of 2021.
Her response was to attack politicians and public health experts for “the crushing impact that our COVID policies have had on young kids and children.”
Some of her comments:
“A healthy teenager has a one in a million chance of getting, and dying from COVID, which is way lower than dying in a car wreck on a road trip…. But they have suffered and sacrificed the most, especially kids and underrepresented at risk communities. You couldn’t even go on a playground in the D.C. area without cops…. shooing the kids off. Tremendous negative impact on kids, and it’s been an afterthought…And that, to me, is the greatest underreported story of the past year.”
Remember that was CBS, not exactly a right leaning station.
What A Dumb Move By The Republicans
First of all, why is Senator Cruz saying if Republicans win they have the actions that could impeach President Biden. Do you think people want to go through that? How can you even say that out loud?
Second, how did Speaker to be McCarthy’s office leak to Axios that they are already planning the investigations they can do? How did this get in the publication?
Investigations planned by House Republicans — in parallel with their legislative agenda — they hope to stoke if they win:
IRS: Leak of a “vast cache of IRS information” about billionaires to ProPublica.
National Security Agency: Tucker Carlson last summer accused the spy agency of targeting his show’s communications. The NSA said he was never an “intelligence target.”
Parents: Attorney General Merrick Garland’s vow to mobilize the FBI against “threats of violence against school board members,” after the National School Boards Association used the phrase “domestic terrorism.” The association apologized for its letter.
Border: Record levels of illegal immigration.
COVID: Origins of the virus, and CDC communications about school closures and mask mandates.
Afghanistan: Decisions behind the withdrawal, and an accounting of Americans who remain stranded.
JEDI: A disputed cloud-computing contract.
My counsel to Republicans – Shut up and win the election on the issues.
Another Democratic Congressman announced he is not running for reelection. Rep. Brenda Lawrence of Michigan became the 25th House Democrat to announce that she would forgo a re-election bid in November.
Data released by the Department of Homeland Security shows the demographics of the typical border jumper have been completely rewritten. Mexicans had, for decades, represented the overwhelming number of illegal immigrants. They dropped to 28% of the flow, their lowest share “in recorded history,” according to Customs and Border Protection. Now do you wonder who is crossing without care?
Finally – A Change
Toyota became the best-selling automaker in the U.S. in 2021, passing GM for the first time with strong sales of hybrid vehicles and SUVs.
GM had held the title since the Great Depression, but has been losing market share for decades.
