What Did the January 6th Committee Accomplish? Jack Squat.
Since I’m going to say some pretty harsh things about members of the blue team, let me just take a minute to make it clear exactly where I stand.
I have voted in every national election since 1966. In November, I will vote in a national election for the28th time. I have only voted for Democrats and I will never (read: never) vote for anyone who isn’t running on the Democratic line.
Notice I say Democratic line, not the Democrat line.
That being said, the hearings conducted by the January 6th Select Committee represent the third time in less than three years that the behavior of Orange Shithead has been the subject of a public display of testimony and evidence, and for the third time the Democratic Party, my party, has fu*ked the whole thing up. Three strikes and you’re out, okay?
This last effort was the worst of all. Why? Because if there’s a single human being in the United States who doesn’t believe that Trump was involved in the planning of the Capitol riot on January 6th, then that person is blind, deaf, and dumb. Or he or she is a Republican, which is saying the same thing.
The whole point of these hearings was missed because what they should have been doing is getting a piece of shit from the Proud Boys or the Three Percenters to get up there and tell what he was told by Roger Stone about what to do on January 6th, and how much money he got to show up in D.C., and how he and his buddies knew not to bring their guns onto the Capitol grounds.
In other words, after the video of the actual riot, witnesses should have been called who would have given that video a human dimension and tie that human dimension – their behavior as rioters – to Trump.
But that’s not what happened. What happened was the Committee started off with the video that showed the venom and the destructive behavior of the shitheads who invaded he Capitol. Then we had to hear from some Constitutional law expert about whether there was a legal basis for trying to stop the counting of electoral votes. Then we had to hear from some woman about how she was threatened because she was working for the election board in Pennsylvania. Then we had to hear from some cop who got punched in the Rotunda.
Who cares about any of that?
The only thing anyone cares about is whether Trump was involved.
And if the Committee couldn’t put witnesses up who would answer the question – was Trump involved? - then the hearing shouldn’t have taken place.
And by the way, it’s all well and good that some 25-yeat old twit all of a sudden got religion and realized she was surrounded by a bunch of guys who couldn’t care less if they broke every Constitutional stricture they could find. But if you think I’m at all impressed by someone who goes to work in the Trump White House and all of a sudden has a ‘come to Jesus moment’ on national TV, I’m not.
If I had been asked to work in the White House for one minute after January 2017, I would have refused. And if anyone with half a brain couldn’t figure out that they were stepping in shit by going into the West Wing every day, then they didn’t even have half a brain. Or they are Republicans, which is the same thing.
As Grandpa would say, Orange Shithead is nothing but a ‘momser,’ (read: bum.) That’s all he ever was. And I could also do without Bennie Thompson thanking Cassidy Hutchinson for her patriotism and bravery when all she did was what I was taught in the 2nd Grade when we started reciting the Pledge of Allegiance every day.
And by the way, if anyone’s sitting out there thinking how wonderful it is to have Liz Cheney on our side, back in 2009 she founded an organization called Keep America Safe, which focused on foreign policy and supported keeping American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. Just what we need.
Enough is enough. We’re about to celebrate July 4th which kicks off the Fall campaign. Either we win or we don’t. Ad if we don’t win I can guarantee you that all the interviews and all the emails and all the Select Committee’s work will go right down the drain.
