Liz Cheney and the J6 Committee Are Dangerous Jokes

 

The walls are closing in! This past week, they had Cassidy Hutchinson talk about her second-hand reports of Trump’s alleged actions on J6. The Secret Service agents who were there contradict her story. Any reputable committee would have asked her about that. In fact, a reputable committee would have not called since the people who were there disagree.

I’m an amateur historian and I know how important primary sources are. Presumably, there are staffers to the J6 committee who are also aware of this. The J6 committee is either incompetent, fraudulent, or both. They don’t care about the truth. They’re a propaganda arm of the Democratic Party.

    This is so true! Anyone on the Right supporting her is supporting the destruction of the Republic!

    What is amazing to me is how people like Andrew McCarthy are so willing to ignore the destruction of institutional norms by the Democrats, and for Liz to go along with it. 

    The need to get Trump is so strong for so many people, they do not care about anything else, including the damage done to America and her institutions.

    The fact Liz Cheney would even sit on what is nothing more than a kangaroo court speaks volumes about her lack of character . . .

    They were (rightly) expecting the MSM to run with the original charge from Cassidy, and ignore the refutation. Which is what the MSM has mostly done.

    The Federalist makes a strong case that the purpose of the J6 Committee is to 1. Discredit any current or future criticism of the election system (such as concerns about ballot harvesting, or mail-in vite fraud) 2. Brand all opponents of the ruling party as “Ultramaga” domestic terrorists. 

    https://thefederalist.com/2022/07/01/heres-what-the-jan-6-show-trials-are-really-after/

    And Liz Cheney is a willing participant. 

    Adam Kinzinger called one of the Secret Service agents who disputed the Trump Limo Steering wheel story as a liar. So much for respecting those who protect them, am I right?

    I still am left to just speculate at what they fear so much about Trump that they are still trying to crush him.  Maybe he’s just a symbol, or as some say a symptom, but maybe he’s much more.  Maybe even he knows how to really clear the swamp this time if he’s reelected.

    Added: According to newsmax,

    Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., on Sunday declared that former President Donald Trump “can absolutely never be near the Oval Office ever again.”

    In an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Cheney, who is vice chairwoman of the Jan, 6 select committee, insisted the panel’s neutral.

    “I don’t want you to convey the impression that somehow the hearings are political,” she said. “Because the goal of the hearings is to make sure that Americans understand what happened, to help inform … legislative changes that we might need to make. But I think it’s also the case that there’s not a single thing that I have learned as we have been involved in this investigation that has made me less concerned.

    “And I think there’s no question, I mean, a man as dangerous as Donald Trump can absolutely never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again.”

    It’s amazing how deep and wide  total corruption is.  Do folks think it’s just about Trump?  It’s not.  Its about the extreme wealth it generates for some and the power it generates for others.   The ideal for Republicans would be, late in the game, for Trump too throw his support to a narrow selection of Republican candidates.  The fraud will still be massive but subsequent investigation, and if necessary, cessation  might be more possible should Democrats still succeed in stealing the election.

    “I don’t want you to convey the impression that just because the Democrats refused to allow anyone who would have challenged the narrative that the 2020 election was flawless and pure and that January 6th was a violent insurrection for which Donald Trump was entirely responsible somehow the hearings are political,” she said.

    Fixed it for her.

    I’m not so sure it’s that they fear Trump (not that they don’t – they do), it’s that they see spreading hate for Trump as their only hope to stay in power.  The power comes first.  If Trump gets back in, so much of what they’ve done (to “fundamentally change” this country) will be halted or undone.  The power comes first.

    At its root, Marxism is absolutely dependent on hate and envy to advance its cause.  Rational thinking must be overridden.  The cave doesn’t exist that is deep enough for any rational thinker to miss what this administration is doing, and the consequences.  Trump is merely the convenient target among the several targets that they’re using in this time.  Much as the Nazis used the Jews.

    Richard Easton: They’re a propaganda arm of the Democratic Party.

    The entire charade should be treated as campaign contributions to the DNC and the “committee” members. (Not sure what good that would really do except to put the lie to “campaign finance” regulation. It’s not like there would ever be a “fair and balanced” contribution from the federal coffers equal to the “committee” budget – not to mention budgets used by several three letter agencies to further the Progressive cause – to the RNC to offset the bias. And it’s not like everyone with half a brain didn’t realize “campaign finance” regulation was a compete farce the minute the left’s favorite tool maverick put his name on a showpiece bill to undercut We the People in spectacular fashion. Hmmmmm. Now that I’ve rambled on a bit, neverminded…)

    This is my experience. 

    I always try to stick to public policy arguments if possible and they don’t like that. When you move off of that it’s just a mess. Stuff like, Ronald Reagan and Obama have “sunny dispositions”. lol

    To me the lunging story is not as important as her stating that she wrote the note.  Eric Herschmann has claimed that he wrote the letter.  You can mishear or be misinformed about the lunging incident.  Saying that a note is in your handwriting when it is not, would be just an out and out lie.  The committee not bringing in Herschmann, clearly displays that the committee is not interested in the truth.  Especially since Herschmann has testified, and was not Trump friendly.

    Text Messages Reveal What Cassidy Hutchinson Really Thought Of The January 6th Committee: Report

    Last-minute star witness Cassidy Hutchinson apparently did not think much of the January 6th committee when she was first called to testify, text messages reportedly revealed.

    According to a report published Sunday by The Daily Caller — based on text messages sent by Hutchinson — the former aide to then White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows referred to the committee’s subpoena as “BS” and made it clear that she was unimpressed with the fact that U.S. Marshals had come to her apartment to deliver it.

    Obviously a woman of integrity and strong convictions….

    I’m not defending this, but some people are saying she means that she resents being forced into this. 

    The other thing I’ve heard is the new lawyer might not be that big of a deal. I got that from the last reasonable doubt podcast. Two different lawyers for two depositions and supposedly three other interviews. 

    I have no idea.

    As people allude, this is not about Trump — it’s about you.  You are not allowed to mention the stolen election, the mutiny and coup, nor the deep-state / intel-community cabal.  You will not discuss Ray Epps, open doors, or obvious agents provocateur.  You may not protest against the deep state and its appointed lickspittles.  Violence in the street against you, your family, and your property is mostly peaceful, but your peaceful protests against tyranny and mutation are dangerous and violent.  And you may certainly not ever elect anybody from outside the deep state club of either party.

    The message is clear.

    And, there are people on the “right” who will support and cheer it.

    It’s impressive the degree to which Democrat Media organs like ABC News are pulling for Liz Cheney.  The Hill published an op-ed from a Left-Wing Democrat Activist cheering for Liz Cheney’s political future, and hoping that she will “rebuild a more traditionally conservative party” and run for president in 2024 or 2024.

    Left-Wing Democrats cheering for Liz Cheney says everything about her conservatism.

    Oh, and just to remind you how classy the Never-Trump side is, her colleague Adam Kinzinger referred to Liz China’s primary opponents as ‘a bunch of armpit farters.’

    Much classy. So decency.

    The idea that it is OK to violate norms, as the Majority Party has in this case, is quite frightening. Anyone supporting the violation of these norms and rules is someone who does not support the rule of law, but the rule of expediency to achieve today’s goal. It is literally a choice of “Might makes Right”.

    Blatant conspicuous trolling…it’s amazing how much unlimited, uninhibited latitude one can buy around here with a credit card. The sort-of-center-right are definitely not the most principled of whores.

    I don’t see corruption in it.  This site really “went to Damascus” a few years back.  Seems the batting away of trolls is largely up to us, and I don’t recall seeing so much as a redaction in years.

    Just thought I’d point this out, as I used to be one of the more strident accusers, when the place was less-well-managed.

    E Kent Golding said that one time somebody at Ricochet has really changed his mind about something is Gary making Kent more sympathetic to Trump.
