I read with interest Representative Cindy Axne's op-ed in the DM Register January 5th."To prevent the next Jan 6, we need the facts".I couldn't agree more, but can we be certain that the conclusion of the Congressional Committee will be unbiased and factual, I have doubta.
Where did she get the information written in the op-ed?The information I have heard or read indicates only four people died on January 6.One was an unarmed woman shot in the throat by some yet unnamed security officer.It is yet to be determined his identity and if he followed proper protocol before discharging his weapon.Another officer died of a stroke initially stated by "fake news" that he was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher.Two others died of heart attacks - not sure if they were - so-called rioters or just in the crowd.
I fail to see how she can make any determination on this demonstration without viewing the thousands of minutes of available video or seeing the results of the Congressional investigation still ongoing.If this investigation is fair and truthful it will take time before the Committee reaches any conclusion.
It is obvious, to me, that the fourth branch (FBI, CIA, DOJ) has not been truthful throughout the Administration of President Donald Trump.There is no question he Is/was a disrupter. He pointed out how malicious and untruthful the bureaucracy was/is. Candidate Trump appealed to the working "forgotten" class of Americans that Hillary classified as "deplorables, irreconcilables" and "racists or bigots."Boy, if any rhetoric would make me angry that was it.That is not who I am and I resent being classified in that way.President Obama made a similar error in calling us "bitter clingers to our guns and bibles".Democrats allowed this name-calling to continue without comment - the result - at least half of the electorate should feel the insult.
There seems to have been plenty of intelligence that would lead Speaker Nancy Pelosi and The Sergeant of Arms to take proper precautions to protect Capital Property.Is it a fact that President Trump offered to the Speaker to call up the Nation Guard to augment security?If so why was the offer ignored by the Speaker?
This really stinks. We now know from a high deputy in the DOD that President Trump authorized up to 20,000 National Guard troops to help guard the capital on Jan 4.Due to our law, they cannot be deployed without a request from the Speaker of the House and/or Mayor of Washinton DC, in other words - local authority.The Captain of the Capital Police requested assistance and I believe the Sergeant of Arms did so as well but the Speaker and Mayor refused.
This will never come out as it is an ultimate embarrassment to Democrats.They always are able to cover their asses.She also stated that the rioters were armed - wrong - the only ones armed were the Capital police and other security.She also stated there were explosives - the only ones I know of were "flash bangs" again by security. Yee Gods!We are in big trouble.
Isaiah 5:20, They say that what is right is wrong, and what is wrong is right; that black is white and white is black; bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.
How is it that some who were arrested were placed in solitary confinement - at least one for one year awaiting trial?It appears they were subject to worse treatment than our most notorious of criminals.I think this is an outrage.
President Trump had many faults, but he showed us how corrupt the established leadership in Congress and many executive branches are. He spoke to the needs of a majority in the middle country; they heard and voted for him.If he again gains the nomination Democrats and many RINOs will crap their drawers in fear.He has shown how corrupt our government really is!
I have no compunction to encourage or endorse any candidate for President: that is not my purpose.But I can say that this present Administration is making error after error.Biden-Harris are in way over their collective heads.Their handling of the Pandemic and the Afghani dishonorable retreat is appalling.There are other criticisms I have, but that is for another time.
