supporting the january 6th commission
They should just drop the pretense and call it the "Look! Squirrel!" Commision.
America's ruling class: somehow managing to combine the best hits of Nero, Caligula, and Marie Antoinette.
I haven’t forgotten the D team burning down cities all summer and now it looks like they are going to do it again…
Todays NYT headline: “ Breaking News: U.S. gas prices have reached an average of $5 a gallon, driven by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and a rebound in energy use amid the pandemic.”
Just one blatant lie after the next.
I’m not at all interested in this Jan 6 commission. And I don’t personally know anyone who is!
Energy is not necessary. That is why it is excluded from core inflation. So we can all relax. Everything is fine.
Gas went up fifty cents over night in Ramona, CA Thursday night! Thats what I remember about the Jan 6 hearing.
I love how the leftists solemnly intone the word "insurrection", and the sputtering that results when one points out that it was the only "insurrection" in history where the "insurrectionists" were unarmed and the only casualty was an "insurrectionist".
If it makes our transatlantic cousins feel better - less worse perhaps - here in Merry Old England, regular unleaded is £1-88 per litre at the local filling station , which is $8-78 per US gallon.
You are not alone in your pain.
Soaring inflation, rising energy, motor fuel and food prices, shortages, economic recession is common to all Countries in the ‘free’ developed World. It almost looks organised on a global level like the Covid response just coincidentally seemed to be, but I am sure that couldn’t be so, even to think such a thing would be a case for the Disinformation STASI.
They allowed cities to burn and businesses ruined but this little, whatever it was at the capital, is a big deal🙄
The Ds haven't shown more media-nurtured outrage over Jan 6 since Trump was elected or perhaps when the GOP freed their slaves.
yes gas was much cheaper on that date
The reason they ended the negative COVID test requirement for international travel to US:
"'Widespread uptake of highly effective Covid-19 vaccines, the availability of effective therapeutics, and the accrual of high rates of vaccine- and infection-induced immunity at the population level in the United States' have all helped lower the risk of severe disease and death, the agency said."

The Founders pretty much knew it’d come to this. They understood that the first couple generations would get the idea that power to govern comes from the people but also recognized that those that were supposed to govern would become corrupted as all people with power do. I think, however, they over-estimated that average people would actually hold politicians accountable via the ballot box or even revolution.
The election of Trump scared the living shit out of the “ruling class” but they also had entrenched themselves into the Administrative State to the point that the soft revolution of Trump voters (which was a vote directly against them) could be managed via the Administrative State and deep corruption (hence, when he was re-elected they made sure he wasn’t).
All this does is kick the can down the road. Assume a GOP “wave” in the mid-terms (possible but voter fraud is an accepted process now, so maybe not) - something similar to the Tea Party would still happen. Many will end up becoming nothing more that corrupted politicians and it’s likely the entrenched GOP “leadership” won’t change. So we’d still be in Hell.
Question is - when will the average American truly sweep these people not only out of office but into prison? It’d take massive change at the Administrative State level. I mean wholesale purging at the DOJ, FBI, State Dept., etc. It’d take closure of the Dept of Education, EPA, etc.
OR… and maybe easier, secession of a number of States. Not in violent revolution. Just leave. The US wouldn’t invade TX and FL and other states.
I sure miss that evil guy who was President then.
The 1/6 trials are just Stalin show trials with better production value.
I’m sure tonight’s “special report” will be full of breathless hyperbole, ridiculous conjectures, and outright lies. (Spoiler alert: it was) The entire thing smells like a Stalin-esque show trial, right down to its professional production. It is designed to send a message to all Americans: oppose us at your peril. You don’t have to even be in the city for us to charge you. We will brand you a terrorist and steal your assets.
If we must have a multi-million-dollar investigation into the events of January 6th, then let’s ACTUALLY DO IT RIGHT. Let’s release ALL the video surrounding that day. Let’s form a legal committee that has legal subpoena power and ask people — under oath — about January 6th. We’ll start with Nancy Pelosi.
