This witch-hunt angers me, and I cannot give it another minute of my time. I hope you will not either. There was one fatality of the riot, the insurrection, of the Capitol on January 6th. It was an unarmed woman who a Capitol Police Officer shot. The January 6 Committee went prime-time on Thursday night. This mini-series is another attempt at putting down Donald Trump one more time and ensuring he cannot run for office again.
Fortunately, last Thursday was the only prime-time episode of the Democrat soap opera. Additional sessions are planned over the next two weeks but will be daytime events with minimal coverage. That minimal coverage is precisely what it deserves. Ratings were poor across all networks Thursday, proving how little the American public cares about January 6.
From the start, this committee was tainted when Nancy Pelosi did not allow the desired members, and she forbid specific questions from being asked. The fact that this was theater was the hiring of a former ABC executive to assist with the production. Was this a Congressional committee meeting or a pilot for a mini-series? It proved not to be much of either.
I confess to not making it through Liz Cheney’s presentation, but I did note one sentence she uttered. She was attacking her fellow Republicans by saying that “someday, Donald Trump will be gone, but they will have to live with themselves forever.” Liz, Trump is gone. You had a hand in his loss. You will live to regret that decision.
Official estimates put the number of people who entered the Capitol on January 6 at over 2,000. The number of guns confiscated was 4, making this technically an armed insurrection, but just four guns and nobody shot by the trespassers make that a weak claim.
These hearings are indicative of the misguided purpose of Congress. With the dire situation we find ourselves in due to poor policy decisions by Biden, you would think that Congress should be working on solutions and not bogus investigations.
The open border is allowing millions of illegals per year, Fentanyl is killing over 100,000 Americans yearly, Inflation is at a 50-year high, and we have new historic high gas prices every day. These issues are pulling Biden and Democrat approval numbers down to historic lows, but they are concentrating on putting a nail in the coffin of former President Donald Trump. That is how much fear Trump has put into Democrats and Liz Cheney.
Is there going to be anything significant that comes from these two weeks? I believe that there will be but not what the Democrats hoped. I think this effort will harm the Democrats and further enhance the tsunami that most are predicting for November. The people deserve to have the government act on their behalf. This committee does nothing to ease the pain the average American feels, and the Democrats are where that blame is directed. This made for tv event will drop the ratings further and fuel the American’s angst.
