Enough Hyperbole Over January 6th

I have heard enough about the insurrection that occurred on January 6th. It has been called the most significant attack on our democracy since the Civil War by Joe Biden. I am not sure, but I believe Joe Biden was not alive in the 1860s, and therefore he does not understand the significance of the Civil War. The Civil War was fought between the troops of the North and South over the practice of slavery. Over 600,000 American deaths, 400,000 deaths of Union Troops to eradicate slavery in the United States. To compare it to the January 6th attack on the Capital and call either an attack on our democracy is disgusting.

The people making these comments were mute last year as a summer of riots and destructive protests destroyed some of our incredible cities. We watched as Minneapolis, Seattle, and Portland endured nightly riots, and Kamala Harris led a group to supply funds to bail out those arrested in these riots. A House investigation began today and was stacked with anti-Trump Democrats and Republicans alike. Even the officers who testified seemed to be selected to testify based on their dislike for the President on January 6th.

I watched about two hours of the hearings today and was disgusted by the proceedings. Democrat representatives were throwing up leading questions. The officers were obliging with answers calling the protestors terrorists, white supremacists, and Trump supporters. All of those labels are equal in a Democrat mind.

Questions were asked about the weapons the terrorists were wielding. Reports of guns, knives, bombs and every conceivable implement of battle make it sound like there was no way any of the guards of the Capitol should have survived. Yet, there was no stab or gunshot wound suffered by any officer protecting the Capitol. These terrorists must be the worst shots and militants ever in combat. I heard testimony about how these officers were under relentless fear for their life. The only person killed on either side of the conflict was an unarmed female protestor who was shot and killed by a Capitol Police Officer. The greatest threat since the Civil War, an attack on our Democracy and but one civilian death.

This situation is a blemish on our history. I am not downplaying the severity of the attack on the Capitol, but this hearing and various comments from the Left are out of control. The Democrats are using this dark day in our history as a tool to vilify Donald Trump and his band of “white supremacist” supporters. I am insulted to be lumped into this latest basket of deplorables. Whatever cannot be verified by fact and truth can be supported by hyperbole and emotion.

The Democrat members of the panel were gushing in their praise and thanks to these brave guards for their efforts. They pledged that the committee would get the truth of what happened on January 6th. These members would not know the truth if it jumped up and slapped them. They want these hearings to paint Donald Trump as the villain and his supporters as his tools. Nancy Pelosi is responsible for the safety and security of the Capitol. Pelosi refused an offer from Donald Trump to activate National Guard troops to assist in crowd control for the day. She refused.

This hearing is a sham, like much of what goes on in Washington, DC. Can we all agree that we cannot stand for these puppet hearings where no truth is uncovered but political gains are made? The hearing today, broadcast in its entirety, wasting air time, serves no purpose other than to divide Democrats and Republicans further. We need no help in that regard. We are doing just fine on our own.

I love this country and what it has contributed to the world. We are a young and still forming country but I have very conservative views that make me fearful for the direction many want to see us heading. I believe we are strong enough to keep us on track but making folks aware of the truth is essential to a successful and prosperous future for us all.

  1. Upon witnessing the crocodile tears from the Capitol police, and Adam Schiff, I was unable to watch anymore of this sham. I was already sent wretching to the bathroom. For a police officer to stand before the American people and blatantly lie about how Officer Sicknick died tells me there will never be a fair and unbiased investigation into January 6. The democrats are the ones responsible for this whole debacle. They orchestrated the riots, and the storming of the capital building. We have evidence of this, and yet why is no one speaking out? Where are the 14,000 hours of videos from that day? When will the American people be able to view these videos? I have serious questions on Jan. 6th, and want to see all the details on who did what, and this is not happening. Welcome to the new Socialist Republic of the United States with “Mistress Pelosi” as ruler.

  2. Ol’ joe is flying illegals all over the country to make sure the covid keeps spreading around to keep us hunkered down in our homes, soon to be in our basements if we’re lucky to have one, not to see anyone else to talk about how horrible he and his fiends have become, to become afraid of our own government. Becoming a communist third world country is the worst thing that could happen to us. Ol’ joe is “not all there” and he’s trying to take the rest of us with him to that place of the unknown, he has a lot of help but we can deal with them because they’re only straw men,

  3. Funny how the dumbocraps cant seem to mention the fact that their armed thug militia auntheava was mostly responsible for the planned violence that insued. Show us the receipt that was paid to one of the said insurgents by a major corporation to make sure violence erupted. It was signed the day before the “most horrible attack on our democracy”. Nobody will mention that on camera Trump told everybody to just go home miles away from where the violence hadnt even happened yet. Not spurring them to violence, urging them to leave peacefully. Its on camera. Unless the socialist communist dumbocraps have already banned and buried it from the public who didnt see it like the stolen election results. Make no mistake, this is a Communist coup, decades in the making taking place right before our eyes. You can read anywhere on the internet all the way back to Krushkev in the 50’s bragging about how they would defeat us without firing a shot. It is layed out for all to see how they would take over one or both of our political parties, check, infiltrate our schools with communist teachers from the University level on down, check, take over our broadcast media, check, create a social unrest and race war, check and much more. It was all planned from the virus being unleashed on the world, yes China imposed a flight and travel ban within their own country but sent infected citizens all over the world to spread it, then once it had taken root here it gave them the excuse to force the mail in ballots allowing massive cheating and when they did, they physically blocked republican poll observers from seeing them cheat {Michigan putting up cardboard in the windows right on camera for everyone to see} You see, the communists have been doing this all over the world for decades and they are so confident of what they do because they know they have all the bases covered in the media and even the courts that mountains of evidence was not even looked at and was quickly buried like our country is slowly being. They saw the massive support that Trump had and all the people coming to DC and they knew they had the perfect opportunity to turn it against him by letting their dogs loose. Yes this entire hearing process is a communist farce. Its what they excel in.
