Representatives of the Speaker of the House and Senate Republican Leader are also silent on whether the leaders weighed in on having National Guard troops bolster security at the Capitol prior to the events of Jan. 6.
The offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell won’t say whether the congressional leaders were briefed on potential violence ahead of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol — or whether they weighed in on requesting help from the National Guard to bolster Capitol security.
Just the News reached out to representatives for Pelosi and asked if the speaker was briefed about threats of violence in advance of the rally. Her office was also asked if the speaker favored or opposed having National Guard troops help Capitol Police to protect the Capitol Building before the rally. Her office didn’t provide a response.
McConnell’s press office was asked the same questions, but they did not return a request.
My thoughts, this was all a set up to delay and then fast pace the approval of electors to get Biden election certified quickly. The swamp wins again. As I have been saying for years we have one party rule in the United States. Ruling class aristocrats looking down on the will of the people. The fake crocodile tears of our Congress is pathetic. They were never in danger, they controlled the storming of the capital. Prove me wrong.
Where are the true Patriots in this country? You know the ones I’m talking about, they bleed red, white, and blue. They stand for what is right regardless of the consequences. Our founding fathers fought a war of independence against insurmountable odds, many in their 20’s and early 30’s, and we have members of Congress that have been serving for decades with no change and no voice for the True Patriot that fights every day for the good of this country. I look for a true moral conservative voice to ring out and call out the demigods of the radical left. Take no prisoners, speak the truth, stand for what is right and defend the Constitution. Now is not the time to compromise our convictions to make a few friends on the D.C. party circuit! Oh we have some that are ringing their hands, clutching their pearls and sweating bullets trying to decide what to do. Let me tell you what to do.
- Get on your knees and pray.
- Stand for the values that made America strong and a leader in the world.
- Speak up for the Constitution
- Back this President 100%.
- Listen to your constituents.
Stop the violence, call out the troops, restore order. Remember your oath of office, “support and defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic.”
God Bless the United States of America.
We’re in the dawn of a high-tech, bloodless cultural revolution, one that relies on intimidation, public shaming, and economic ruin to dictate what words and ideas are permissible in the public square.
“Words are violence” has always been an illiberal notion meant to stifle speech and open discourse. Popularized by a generation of coddled and brittle college students, it now guides policy on editorial pages at newspapers such as The Philadelphia Inquirer, The New York Times, and most major news outlets.
The Times can claim that a harsh tone and a small factual error in Sen. Tom Cotton’s recent op-ed was the reason the entire paper had a meltdown, but the staffers who revolted initially claimed that Cotton’s argument for bringing the National Guard into cities put black lives in “danger.”
None of the Times’ editors, all of whom are apparently comfortable with running fabulist histories or odes to communist tyrannies, pushed back against the caustic notion that engaging in debate was an act of violence. They bowed to the internal mob and pleaded for forgiveness. Taken in part from a Commentary by David Harsanyi—The Daily Signal
For the life of me I can’t understand what people are thinking. Wish I could be mayor of Seattle for a day. No more occupation. These people are enemies of the state.
In an interview Thursday night with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan described blocks of Seattle’s streets that have been designated by Antifa the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” as a “block party,” rather than “an armed takeover.” The Seattle police and local government surrendered the area to Antifa anarchists Wednesday, leading to chaos.
