There is no question that Trump et al committed crimes in plotting to overturn the 2020 election and thus overthrow the government of the United States. No question. The evidence is…evident. But I am adamantly against the Jan. 6 Select Committee sending a criminal referral to the DOJ.
Bad move. Don’t give Trump and his Clown Car a chance to start screaming “witch hunt” or “hoax” or “fake news” or “liberal conspiracy” or whatever Tuesday’s Bullshit Du Jour is.
Nope. DOJ already has everything it needs. Just let AG Garland handle it. Don’t be fooled by his current low-profile. He’s got this.
Liz Cheney and I probably could not agree on what dessert to order. But I trust her. It’s called “integrity,” which begins with acknowledging terms and seeing things as they are. Yes, that was an armed insurrection. Yes, that was an attempted coup. Yes, it was a rejection of democracy. Yes, Putin is a war criminal. And, yes, Russia is conducting genocide.
Tell it like it is, Aaron Neville.
Chemical weapons? Well, they don’t call that new Russian commander The Lamb of Syria. He just upped the ante.
Guilty on all six charges. So said the jury about former Virginia policeman’s actions at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Well, it was kinda, you know, all there on video. And then there were his own words, calling for an “open armed rebellion,” and the curious fact that he bought another 37 guns online after his arrest 15 months ago. Rot in hell.
You want energy independence? Me, too. Which is why it only makes sense to, at a prudent pace, to move away from fossil fuels and toward clean renewables. This is not cultural jihad with me. It’s common sense that reflects the arc of history, the march of technology and basic economic principles. It’s the only way to achieve LASTING independence.
Man! NASA’s Artemis I moon-mission stack is a good-looking bird, isn’t it? Good luck to the boys and girls at The Cape as they prepare to make another attempt to conduct a “wet dress rehearsal” on Thursday. The problem with rehearsing the fueling of that 322-feet tall monster has been traced to a 3-inch-long part. Yes, this IS rocket science.
