Dear Editor,

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.

Darrin Lindsey January 11, 2022, 1:52 pm Sir, how could you possibly author a letter, like this, about the events of January 6, 2021, without mentioning that the rioters were there by request of that former guy? How could you leave out the fact that the rioters, not only entered our Capitol Building, that was closed to the public, but entered it by breaking down doors, breaking windows, and, once entered, they destroyed statues, Congressional property, and spread human feces over many walls?
How is it that you are privy to the exact circumstances of the detention that these rioters are being subject to, let alone the circumstances of the people that you claim, committed much worse crimes?
How can you not include in this letter, that the among the crimes that those rioters committed are crimes against The United States of America?

According to the statutory definition of sedition, it is a crime for two or more people within the jurisdiction of the United States:

-To conspire to overthrow or destroy by force the government of the United States or to level war against them;
-To oppose by force the authority of the United States government; to prevent, hinder, or delay by force the execution of any law of the United States; or
-To take, seize, or possess by force any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof.
That second bullet point kind of hits the proverbial nail on the head.
Sir, you seem to be putting much more pressure on the January 6 Committee than is actually there. They are just a group of elected leader that are gathering evidence to present to the Department of Justice, if they see fit. Notice that I wrote "evidence", not fake evidence. There have been no less than 5 testimonies from people that had access the "the former guy". It is rumored that those 5 testimonies have laid very unfavorable light on "the former guy". But, Congress doesn't have any power to enforce the laws of our country. That lies squarely on the DOJ, and the Federal Justice System.

It seems that when you write these letters, they could be titled Letter of the Uninformed.
Darrin Lindsey January 11, 2022, 2:20 pm Sir, I just looked at a response you made on a previous letter. Your Dr. Zelenski says that his treatment with Hydroxychlorquine "prevents his patients from the need of a ventilator". Can you not see the flaw in this? A person that tests positive for COVID-19, IS NOT destined to a ventilator. Giving a patient with mild symptoms, or no symptoms at all, a medicine, CANNOT prove anything!!! I can claim that none of those people were going to need a ventilator, and you can't prove me wrong. Vice-versa, I can't prove you wrong, if you said every one of them were destined for the ICU. There is no medicinal truth that can be made from that evaluation! But, based on factual medical evaluation of the course of many decades, it is fact that a person with heart disease, could die immediately, upon taking Hydroxychlorquine. With heart disease being one of the most undiagnosed conditions known, how can you live with yourself, after continually promoting its use?
Norma Gould January 11, 2022, 6:10 pm John: I think we be certain that the conclusion of the Congressional Committee will be unbiased and factual. Republicans have been called to testify but are refusing because Trump doesn't want them to tell the truth.

The U.S. Capital Police Officer who shot and Killed Ashli Babbitt has been named and the DOJ will not pursue charges. He gave an interview on TV. You listen to too much Fox. He would never go on there.

Officer Sicknick died of strokes but there were several guys arrested for assault for using bear spray in his face. Yes I always thought Trump and the Republican party were pro police but evidently not. They sure proved otherwise on Jan 6, 2021.

Hillary was right when she called them deplorables and racists. One black police officer said he had never been called the "N" word before while in uniform and that word was used against him many many times on Jan 6th.

As far as Speaker Pelosi calling up the National Guard, again you believe too much of what you hear on Fox. While reports circulated about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser requesting the Guard to help restore order, only the president, or his secretary of defense, may order it to do so. Trump sat there for 3 hours watching his insurrection on TV before someone was finally able to talk him into calling for them to go home. He was enjoying it too much. Speaker Pelosi did not have the authority to call the National Guard. McCarthy and Fox lying again and you believing it. Fact check might be a good idea for you. As far as the story about Jan 4th that is just Trump trying to cover his behind and put the blame on someone else. That is always the way he operates. Blame someone else for everything that goes wrong. Blame Nancy, blame Congress, that is what Trump does and you are an enabler by passing along all this false information.

There were two pipe bombs found, one by the Democratic Headquarters and one by the Republican Headquarters. They were left the night before the insurrection and there is now $100,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the guilty person. They have a video of the well disguised person.

Just remember every bit of information you get about the Biden Harris Administration from Fox is not true. They lie just like Trump always lied so be careful what you pass along. So many of the Republicans I hear on TV are liars now just like Trump. I guess they are repeating what Trump tells them to say.

Gerald Bates January 11, 2022, 9:44 pm John, you are right on point. Thank you. Of course our two "Jesters" have chimed in with their usual responses.
Darrin Lindsey January 12, 2022, 9:06 am Mr. Bates, it's nice to see that you only used 20 words to say nothing, this time.
Norma Gould January 12, 2022, 4:41 pm Gerald Bates:

Sorry to burst your bubble but John was not right on point, he passed on a lot of false information which I pointed out to him. In a situation like this google is your friend, check out your information before you pass it on. I know telling lies is a Republican thing to do because Trump does it all the time but that doesn't mean you have to participate.

Norma Gould
Gerald Bates January 12, 2022, 8:18 pm Mr Lindsay & Norma, I simply decided to not waste my time giving you two clowns the attention you both seem to crave.
I have to admit I did not waste any time reading your usual long and pointless replies to what John wrote either. No one else does either. Everyone I know sees the names and just accept it as the local fools have spewed their venom and pointless speech again. It's comparable to flushing a toilet... you see it and know where it is going to end up.. Tomorrow will be another day and another flush.
John Stiegelmeyer January 18, 2022, 8:03 pm To the trio:
A simple definition of inflation: Too much money chasing too few goods. It is not complicated. But the key to all prices is the cost to move the goods. That is petroleum. The cause off the bat was the big so called stimulus package; tremendous amount of dollars into the economy. There it is pure and simple – and it was Under President Biden. Way to go Joe.

One other item: no government official or politician is interested in getting to the bottom of the Jan 6 event. The Congressional Committee will only be interested in further discrediting President Trump. If that is the true conclusion –so be it. But there may be another take. This day on a KXEL afternoon program an investigative author Julie Kelly gave an account of the events that happened on that day not covered by the mainstream media. Previously on the Newt Gingrich 360 podcast he had an interesting interview with the same person. Link below – please move to the 2 minute mark if able. I suggest all people who wish justice to listen.

Note: I did receive and increase in SS benefits also an increase in Part A insurance as one reader stated there was a difference for him of $83 I received the same increase. The point of it all was that with the increase in benefits there is also an increase in insurance. Point taken.

Regards, and blessings
