Lots of manly emotional tears today.

And then as the committee started their questioning, it was amazing to see some of them come to tears.

“Republican Liar Andrew Clyde, representative to Georgia, continues to claim the terrorists that stormed our nation’s Capitol on January 6 were indulging in a normal tourist visit.

This, of course, flies in the face of all reason as there is photographic evidence of Liar Clyde helping to barricade the House chamber door as rioters attempted to disrupt the joint session of Congress to certify the Electoral College vote on January 6, 2021.

A likely co-conspirator with Capitol insurrectionists, Republican Liar Clyde has declined to comment at this time, thereby establishing he is of sound mind, eliminating any credible attempt to claim insanity when called to answer for his crimes of sedition.

If you are a Trump supporter at this point, there is nothing that anyone can say or do to change your mind & you will justify any behavior while bitching about Mean Old Nancy.

As someone else noted, the real story is who financed these morons to come to DC (Ginny Thomas?) & while most of the people in the crowd were MAGA morons, there were also well-trained military personnel with real intent. Who organized them & got them there (Eric Prince). I don't think we'll get answers to any of those questions, at least in the short term.

by Anonymousreply 109July 27, 2021 5:45 PM

I’d like to “know” the answers to those questions too, R104.

My suspicion is that there was a conflict at the highest levels of the guard/military.

As the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs opined, Trump, channeling Hitler, wanted the members of Congress who wouldn’t crown him Prez, killed. If the military had been called up, and consequently placed under Trump’s immediate command, some number of might have helped the mob rid the legislative chambers of “traitors.”

Once Congress was usurped, there would be no one or thing to prevent Trump from “temporarily” staying on as President until “all this mess got straightened out”.

The highlight for me was when Officer Dunn said,

"Everything is different, but nothing has changed. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger are being lauded as courageous heroes and while I agree with that notion, why? Because they told the truth? Why is telling the truth hard? I guess in this America it is. Us four officers, we would do January 6th all over again. We wouldn't stay home because we knew it was going to happen. We would show up. That's courageous. That's heroic.

What I ask from you all is to get to the bottom of what happened, and that includes, like I echoed the sentiments of the other officers sitting here, I use an analogy . . .

If a hit man is hired and kills somebody, the hit man goes to jail. But not only does the hit man go to jail, but the person who hires them does. There was an attack carried out on January 6th, and a hitman sent them. I want you to get to the bottom of that. Thank you.

Another thing I admired about the hearing was the diversity of the police witnesses. They are the true Americans here. They reflect the diverse ethnicity of this nation, especially the immigrant Officer Gonell, who fought in Iraq before going to law enforcement.

Trump's America dismisses, diminishes,, disrespects these people, officers and public alike, and that's in part why they are in such pain. One minute the GOP lauds and applauds law enforcement and the next tosses them aside when they do not support the lies.

Ginni Thomas, Wife of Clarence, Cheered On the Rally That Turned Into the Capitol Riot “GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU STANDING UP or PRAYING!”

On Wednesday morning, Ginni Thomas—wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas—endorsed the rally in Washington demanding that Congress overturn the election. She then sent her “LOVE” to the demonstrators, who violently overtook the Capitol several hours later. Two days later, Thomas amended her post with the addendum: “[Note: written before violence in US Capitol].” By that point, five people involved in the insurrection, including a Capitol Police officer, had died.

On her Facebook page, she frequently promotes baseless conspiracy theories about a “coup” against Trump led by Jewish philanthropist George Soros, a frequent target of anti-Semitic hate. Thomas draws many of these theories from fringe corners of the internet, including an anti-vax Facebook group that claimed Bill Gates would use the COVID vaccine to kill people. In recent months, she also amplified unsubstantiated corruption claims against Joe Biden while insisting, falsely, that the Obama administration illegally spied on Trump’s 2016 campaign, then tried to rig the election against him.

R170, I'm guessing that, if it's found that any member of Congress was involved, that may be grounds for expulsion.

[quote] Expulsion is the most serious form of disciplinary action that can be taken against a Member of Congress. The United States Constitution (Article I, Section 5, Clause 2) provides that "Each House [of Congress] may determine the Rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member." The processes for expulsion differ somewhat between the House of Representatives and the Senate.

[quote] Censure, a less severe form of disciplinary action, is an official sanction of a member. It does not remove a member from office.

R238 and R247 when you ignore R1 R232 also disappears and both appear as posts by the same poster and both are on the ignore list.

What is happening R238 is you have your viewing settings set closer to ‘delicate flower’ than ‘asbestos eye balls.’ When a post has been FF so often that it gets grey-lined then it automatically disappears for those not choosing to see everything. You don’t have that poster on ignore, Muriel removed R1 from your view because it had been so downvoted.

The people saying that "the networks" should've shown these hearings during "primetime" seem a tad out of touch. The overwhelming majority of people under 50 don't watch over-the-air or even cable television, and they're not really watching anything "live" from their TV sets; they're streaming from other devices at their own schedule and convenience. "Primetime" is also a pretty archaic concept in this era of ubiquitous screens, streaming everything, and balancing life and work all from home.

Showing these hearings at night on the traditional broadcast networks would only have the effect of pissing off a LOT of people who expect to settle into their couch at 8pm for an evening of spoon-fed mass-marketed corporate entertainment, a demographic that already skews heavily older and more deplorable than the public at large.

R1 is r232. You can see that if you use ignore-dar.

Either there's a glitch in the ignore function (which does happen sometimes) or Tony Woodard's explanation earlier is correct, that R1 has been removed automatically after a lot of FFs, but R232 is still there. That means you don't have r1 blocked at all, you're just unable to see that reply and therefore assumed you DID have him blocked.

To test my theory, verify that you can see R232, then scroll up to R1 to see if it appears. I could see the former but not the latter.

Then go to Settings/Permissions in the Thread watcher and move the bar all the way to Asbestos Eyeballs. Come back to this thread and see if R1 is visible, but grayed-out. It was for me.

Raskin, however, had spent the morning in the select committee’s first hearing, listening to four police officers describe the horrific hand-to-hand combat they experienced with Trump supporters who were attempting to stop Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 election.

[quote] So when Clyde appeared before the Rules Committee [bold] later on Tuesday, [/bold] Raskin quizzed the Republican about his “tourist” comment and about his vote against legislation awarding Congressional Gold Medals to Capitol Police for their defense of the U.S. Capitol.

R253 you are wrong. Numbers are down across the board for cable and terrestrial television but the majority of the US still use them over streaming services. And there is a big difference between 18-29 year olds and older people, but the majority of Americans across all ages (56%) still use cable or terrestrial television.

[quote]Nielsen, known for measuring television usage in the United States, said Thursday that 64% of time spent on televisions was on network and cable TV, while 26% of time was spent on streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. Another 8%, categorized as “Other,” includes video-on-demand, streaming from cable set-top boxes, and other TV uses, such as gaming and watching DVDs.

Milley, Capitol Police, Goldstar families, Simone Biles, Scientists, doctors, etc...basically, anyone who has served, sacrificed or in some way been the best representation of this nation, is immediately attacked by these fucking assholes.

How do you think you're on the "good" side when it's populated by useless, vile scum like Carlson, Hannity, Ingraham, Charlie Kirk, Stephen Miller, MTG, Gosar, Gohmert, Meghan McCain, anyone Trump (except Mary), etc? I mean do you accept you're just filth?

I've thought about this and come to a sad conclusion. The people I know who watch Fux know that they are hard working, good people (and some of them that I know personally basically have potential to be good people) but they are CONSUMED by resentment. (the ones I know) live in Jersey, Staten Island, Long Island, lower Westchester, etc. and, as I do, constantly interact with folks who are "to the manor born". Whereas I just see it as a factor of life and an inequality to be work out, they see is as, one, a punishment and, two, a justification for their own circumventing of unjust rules.

But they also don't really have any hobbies and are by-and-large lacking in social skills. They don't have any carrots to draw them forward, largely relying on anger, punching down and gloating for the adrenaline rush to get on with the necessities of life. While they may not inherently be racist or homophobic or whatnot, when something strikes a fancy they are like. dog with a bone--literally a treat to stimulate them enough to plod onward through their weariness.

So, no, they don't accept themselves as filth. They don't think about much of anything until something they can use to recharge resonates with them.

And that is what make Tuckums and Hannity, and Cruz and Ivanka and the rest of them so fucking evil: THEY KNOW BETTER. They know that these people are broken and lost and angry and sad and desperate for any kind of spark. And they know that the majority of the bile they spill will fall on deaf ears (and, therefore, they will not get punished for it--and when a court attempts to hold them accountable they flat out admit that their sheep should know better). So, what do they do? They just churn it out and build their network on the backs of a few people who believe this and a few people who believe that and a few people who don't know what to believe but are just along for the ride.

What is disheartening is how callous and amoral the politicians and broadcasters are. They are liars but I think even most of their flock know that...they just hate the other side more (which is why every sentence has to mention AOC, or CRT or Pelosi).

That said, some like MTG, Gohmert and this Roy the Redneck are mentally ill

Police Unions are the most frustrating groups.... completely controlled by white supremacist reactionaries, they constantly align with groups who think all unions are wrong, and public unions (with their pensions) being the enemy. Meanwhile police officers are able to get vested in a few years, retire after 20 years. Average police pensions in the US is over $70 k annual, and much higher in urban police departments. Salaries (with manipulated overtime) can exceed $200k annual. Over 3x what teachers can make.

Reform public employees compensation and accountability ... start with the police.

What is ironic about your friend's friend, R285, is that they most likely are intractably opposed to anyone studying the history of the fight for equality in America which is flooded with ad hominem attacks just like these.




From emancipation to suffrage to the Civil Rights Movement, every step of the way the majority has parried unassailable arguments with a dismissive assertion that that the opponent is too ignorant to produce those words, those actions, that passion on their own. The secondary benefit is to assuage any guilt of oppression (racism...sexism...) by rationalizing that it is not directed (primarily) at the enemy before them--who are merely pawns of foreign powers.

It's easy, cheap and all over the conservative sphere today.

R291, it's because these people blame Democrats for THEIR bad behavior. Like a typical abuser.

"See what you made me do!". And "I wouldn't act like this if YOU didn't MAKE me".

Anyone who has had to deal with an abuser knows how they think and operate. As long as YOU take on ALL responsibility to keep the abuser happy (stoke his ego, lie for him, cover for him, deny reality, take all blame for HIS abuse), then he's happy. Fail to do any of this and his unhappiness is YOUR FAULT and therefore, in his pea brain, you DESERVE ANY ABUSE he cares to inflict on you.

These people are ALL abusers. They are immature toxic narcissists who believe everything THEY do is perfect and good. They are "forced" to be "mean" by Democrats who fail to behave the way these malignant pricks demand.

That's why they fly into a rage over AOC, Omar, Jaypal, Pelosi and especially Hillary. A powerful woman, speaking her mind and calling out their lies and bullshit, cannot exist. Their very EXISTENCE is an existential threat to them.

They believe, in their warped minds, that these women CAUSE them to attack. That if these women just "shut up and went away" that "everything would be fine and I wouldn't have to act this way".

These men (and it's mostly men) blame everyone else for THEIR feelings of inadequacy. Anyone who isn't like them (white, straight, xtian, male) should "know their place" so these men don't have to act out.

The lawsuit names Donald J. Trump in his personal capacity, the Trump Campaign, Roger Stone, the Proud Boys, the Oath Keepers, and Stop the Steal as defendants, as well as other individuals and members of Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, and the Three Percenters. The litigation, Smith et. al. v. Trump et. al. was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.


Defendants’ acts violated two provisions of the federal Ku Klux Klan Act, which forbids conspiracies to use force, intimidation, and threats to prevent federal officers from doing their jobs or to injure them in the course of their work. Their acts also amounted to politically motivated acts of domestic terrorism and incitement to riot, which violated the District of Columbia Bias-Related Crimes Act. The defendants also aided and abetted assault and battery on Capitol Police officers, in violation of D.C. law.

(3 of 3) The Select Committee also released [bold]subpoenas to 15 social media companies[/bold] seeking records related to the spread of misinformation, efforts to interfere with the 2020 election or the certification of electoral college results, domestic violent extremists, and foreign influence in the election. Investigators are also interested in how the company’s algorithms contributed to extremism and the insurrection. ▪️Social media giants Facebook, Snapchat, Google, Twitter, Twitch, Reddit, YouTube, and Tik-Tok were targeted, as well as 4chan, 8kun, Gab, Parler, Telegram, and Zello.

[bold]Phone Records[/bold] ▪️The Select Committee is reportedly preparing to issue subpoenas to various telecommunications companies regarding records around Jan. 6. Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) confirmed the Committee is about planning to send notices requesting the major telecom firms preserve the “phone records of several people, including members of Congress,” according to CNN. ▪️Other sources report that targets of the records request will include Reps. Lauren Boebert (CO), Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA), Jim Jordan (OH), Andy Biggs (AZ), Paul Gosar (AZ), Mo Brooks (AL), Madison Cawthorn (NC), Matt Gaetz (FL), Louie Gohmert (TX), Jody Hice (GA), and Scott Perry (PA). Rep. ▪️Jim Jordan has repeatedly dodged answering questions regarding his conversations with Trump on Jan. 6, but we now have more information. Jordan confirmed to Politico that he spoke to the former president “more than once” on the 6th, which reportedly includes one call made with Rep. Matt Gaetz begging Trump to call off his supporters.

Regarding the [bold]Capitol Police Officers lawsuit,[/bold] a user from the linked post commented with this reassuring point:

▪️By starting with a civil suit, witnesses cannot invoke 5A protections. The testimony used in this case will be used for future criminal cases. Can't wait for criminal cases to discover purjory in later testimony. I'm also ready for the immunity deals to begin rolling in to support conspiracy and RICO charges. Maybe this time DoJ will actually make leniency contingent on cooperation, unlike what they've done recently.

[bold]Trump Fires Election Security Director Who Corrected Voter Fraud Disinformation[/bold]

▪️Krebs' firing came after his agency, the [bold]Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency,[/bold] last week released a statement calling the 2020 election "the most secure in American history."

▪️It added, in boldface, "There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised."

The circumstances surrounding his firing, included in the Department of Homeland Security subpoena, are one of the most important aspects to this whole investigation. I cannot wait to hear what he knew and who he warned in advance of the election and 1/6/21.

Absolutely, r336. The first time I saw that video, I said, "that's a woman".

There are probably numerous FBI agents that are sympathizers, r334. THAT is why this person hasn't been apprehended.

It's also why it took them so long to track anyone down even AFTER the goddamned INTERNET did their fucking jobs FOR THEM.

Garland needs to borrow Pelosi's swinging dick and obliterate every last traitor in the FBI. Fire them. No pension, no opportunity to retire. Kick them out and prosecute them.

You can start with the pricks in the NYC office who were feeding Ghouliani info about Weiner's laptop and forced Comey to bring it up right before the election in 2016.

Every last one of those traitorous cunts needs to be fired, prosecuted and jailed. General pop. Let them take their chances with other criminals.

Comments from the Twitter post:

[quote] The FBI has to have an estimated height & weight with all the footage. She stands right beside the scooter in this video that may have standard handlebar height if a rental, which I'm guessing it is. The suspect does look petite and slight in nature.

[quote] Maybe I watch too many movies, but I find it hard to believe that the fbi and cia don’t have the technology in place to ID this person.

[quote] Maybe we can get their brother to rat them out.

[quote] The Boston marathon bombers were identified in less then 3 days. Why is this taking 8 months?

[quote] Why is no one concerned about the police car driving by and this suspect waved at it? It seems like a crucial detail to me. With all the technology, why hasn’t the cell been pinged? And lastly, has the previous few days footage of the area shown someone of this statute around?

[quote] I'm convinced they are playing with the suspect with the drip drips. They know who it is. They are watching and surveilling the suspect to gather more info. Had they gone after the suspect (pretty easy to pin down) from the get go they probs would have lost a ton of intel.

R339, I was watching Maddow last night and she was talking about the countless death threats that election officials have gotten from Trump supporters and how none of these people (who have been identified) have been arrested. Law enforcement has done nothing to help with even going after these Trump supporters.

I don't doubt for a second that if this person were Muslim or black or Hispanic, law enforcement would already know who they were. Black people have always been right about law enforcement. They really aren't here to protect everyone. The fact that most of them worship someone as disgusting, corrupt and engaged in criminal activity as Trump and are clearly a bunch of racists and bigots, shows they are not about law and justice.

[quote] ...they are not about law and justice.

As others have pointed out, 45 and his tribe never actually say "justice". Their phrase is "LAW & ORDER". While that may seem like a minor variance, the latter means that the dominant party has no interest in the greater good, subsequently they pass LAW to protect their comfort, their structure...their ORDER...

[quote] “This is really how a legislative committee should operate,” Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said of the nine-member Jan. 6 panel he also sits on. “We do not engage in constant partisan crossfire and polemical attacks on one another."

[quote] The collegiality between the committee's two Republicans and seven Democrats, Raskin added, "does give you a glimpse of what we could do if we didn't have one wheel stuck in the mud.”


[quote] Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.), another Jan. 6 panel member, said Cheney and her fellow anti-Trump committee Republican, Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, raise ideas "that we might not think through completely" without them in the room.

[quote] “What’s surprised me a little is, she not only is strong on these issues, she’s passionate, she cares," Aguilar said of Cheney. "But she also does a lot of the diplomacy that is important if you want to be successful.”

[quote] Part of that comes from Cheney's substantive value to the committee, having held senior executive-branch posts and gotten unique insight into the workings of the West Wing from her father’s role as George W. Bush's vice president. As House GOP conference chair prior to her ouster, Cheney also acquired valuable knowledge about Trump’s relationship with her colleagues and interactions with members of leadership.


[quote] Politics also could easily get in the way as Cheney fights for her political life against a Trump-backed challenger. Some former GOP allies rankled by Cheney's unsparing criticism of Trump now claim privately that she could bail on Democrats if it serves her politically.

[quote] “[I] expect her to turn on Democrats when she needs to. I was a close ally of her and she turned,” said one House Republican, speaking candidly on condition of anonymity. “It is just what she does.”

[quote] ...Cheney's pre-Jan. 6 reputation as a stalwart conservative, is enough to convince other Republicans of her sincerity working alongside Democrats — no matter what obstacles Trump may try to toss in her way.

[quote] “My guess is she'll be an honest broker with him. I mean, that's just how she is. She's a professional,” said Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-N.D.). “She may push for things they're not comfortable with, but I don't think she'll surprise them.”
