As I See It

Yes, made for TV committee hearing really was necessary



Was all that really necessary? Some are questioning the rationale for last night’s primetime airing of the findings so far of the committee studying the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. They argue that the real reason for throwing this in our faces on all three networks is to provide political cover for democrats. The made-for-tv event is only to take our minds of $5 a gallon gas, and to improve democrats’ chances at the polls in November. That seems a cynical view. What happened in Washington that day was unprecedented in American history. An attempt to interrupt the peaceful transfer of power through violence was an attempt to subvert the will of the people. It led to death and destruction of the Capitol. It was a stain on our entire nation. But more than a year has passed, and our attention span can be short. Lots has happened since January 6, including a war and spiraling inflation. That is why it is important this investigation and its findings be given such focus. Maybe that is why it was turned into must see tv. So that we will pay attention, and remember the principles of this country that must be protected. So that justice can be served, and we can take steps to ensure that never again does a President of the United States attempt to undermine our democracy for their own political gain.

    Dose the word KANGAROO COURT come to mind run by a bunch of delusional democrats…there’s more validity in the the fact that Nancy Piglosi gave standdown down orders to capitol police for political gain and that makes her complicit in murder and treason …so the BS by the democrats is what it is BS.

    It was a protest against the stolen election, not an insurrection, the label applied by the Deep State media. It was a protest engineered into a false flag event. The capitol police allowed the protesters into the building. Then, no doubt FBI informants and agent provocatuers went to work causing damages. Four people died on Jan. 6th-all Trump supporters. Ashli Babbit was murdered in cold blood. The killer walks free. Will this so-called committee look into that? Truth be told this ‘story’ is a manufacture of corrupt Democrats and their allies in the Deep State media. The combination knows there is a giant red wave coming in November, a wave that will stall the Deep State agenda of open borders, gun control, and the global warming hoax. Jan 6th is an attempt to divert that wave.

    No one I talked to believes that the individuals who broke into the Capital should not be punished according to the law. However, Scott and the media who put on this made for TV circus are the same folks who thought the riots in Kenosha and the Twin Cities were “mostly peaceful” along with the “summer of love” experiment in Seattle were just some folks expressing their frustration.
    Once again Scott, you can’t just pick sides with violence, you have treat both sides the same.

    We all have known for months Trump’s role in what happened. Does anyone have the intestinal fortitude to do the right thing and arrest him?
    The media of course has turned a blind eye towards Hunter Biden and worse than that will not say anything about Hilary Clinton’s role in the Steele Dossier fiasco which eventually led to Democrats and especially Adam Schiff yelling for two years of Trump- Russia election shenanigans when he knew and the Democrats knew there wasn’t any.
    If the media ever told the complete story on a lot of issues, it would not matter what the Supreme Court did with Roe – Wade the Democrats would be in much deeper trouble than they already are.
    The suppression of facts to protect a narrative is mind boggling.
