It is widely seen that the U.S. House Select Committee about January 6 is falling flat. See, e.g., Breitbart’s article, ” January 6 Committee’s Third Hearing So Boring NBC Cut to Golf Instead .” (For golf to be more interesting, it’s bad.)
What’s more amazing is that no clue has penetrated the fog of Democrats, establishment Republicans, the news media, or far-left activists about why. Our political class is so out of touch that it could not see this collective yawn coming.
And no, this is not about interviewing that one magic witness. It is the fundamental concept of their entire effort that the American people see through like a windowpane. There are no additional witnesses or documents that can save an enterprise doomed from the start.
First, the Committee is convincing us that this is only a political disagreement. Trump and his leadership team and MAGA voters are “guilty” of having incorrect political views and committing “wrongthink.” (I encourage all to re-read George Orwell’s 1984 . ) The Committee is trying to prove that Trump was just wrong.
The Committee is violating the First Amendment constitutional rights of millions of Americans, including by chilling, intimidating, and frightening U.S. citizens from expressing their political views. You are not allowed to believe that the 2000, er, 2016 , er, 2020 presidential election was stolen — as Al Gore and then Jill Stein claimed.
Other than running up the body count of witnesses, the Committee is clearly obsessed with criminalizing political differences. But “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech.” Congress has no valid legislative purpose to cut the First Amendment out of the Constitution.
Second, the left-wing conspiracy theory of a January 6 “insurrection” could work only if people don’t think about it too much. The public hearings make the fundamental mistake […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
