The January 6 House Committee Hearings On The Insurrection Begin Tonight

After nearly a year, and herculean efforts, the January 6 House Committee is beginning public hearings this evening.

They should provide gripping testimony to the realities of the attack on the US Capitol, and all networks, except Fox News Channel, are covering them live for the nation.

These hearings are similar to the Watergate hearings under Richard Nixon 50 years ago, and the Iran-Contra hearings under Ronald Reagan 35 years ago.

Hopefully, they will lead to action and prosecution, including of Donald Trump and his minions, who engaged clearly in sedition and treason!

“Great Replacement Theory” A Ticking Time Bomb Promoted By Republicans

The Republican Party, Fox News Channel and other extremist right wing media, and specificially Tucker Carlson, have been promoting a hateful, conspiracy laden theory, the “Great Replacement Theory”, warning of the future America where the white population, by demographic change, will become a minority by 2040.

That should not be an issue to all stable, decent people, who know one does not judge anyone by race, religion or skin color.

But sadly, it is being utiized to alarm and terrify and propagandize unstable people to think it is acceptable to strike out and promote mass murder, as happened in Buffalo this past weekend, but has occurred many other times over recent years with lack of any gun regulations.

It is not just African Americans who are becoming victims of crazed mostly young white men, but also Jewish Americans, Latino Americans, Asian Americans, and Muslim Americans, with Jews and African Americans most often threatened. And also, hate has spread to gays, lesbians, and transgender Americans!

It is also an attack on immigration, when America has always been a nation of immigrants, and with the aging of the population, there is a dire need for more immigrants for the labor force and economic growth!

It portends high levels of violence and bloodshed, and even the danger of open civil war!

It is domestic terrorism at its worse, much more prevalent and dangerous than even foreign terrorism!

Foreign terrorists are applauding how Americans are undermining themselves from within!

The Attack On Teachers And Librarians

Those individuals who dedicate their lives and careers as teachers and librarians are facing a crisis unseen in American history.

The Republican Party and the extreme right wing has declared war on teachers and librarians, promoting censorship and direct threats against those who promote free inquiry and tolerance!

The move of some state and local governments, and of some right wing media, such as Fox News Channel, One America News Network (OANN) and NewsMax, to threaten lawsuits and loss of employment to those who educate our children and to ban books and other materials some find objectionable, is an attack on the Bill of Rights and the promotion of truth and facts!

No wonder many teachers and librarians are leaving their professions, as state laws in Texas, Florida and elsewhere allow for parents or others to begin lawsuits, when such people are not qualified to dictate what the curriculum should be in schools, or to ban books and other materials on book shelves in libraries!

Does anyone promote that medical doctors, attorneys, accountants and others be subjected to ignorant parents and extremist elements to dictate their fields of work and what are acceptable policies and programs?

This blogger and author could not imagine trying to teach in the public schools at any level in today’s environment, where not only is there conflict over teaching of “Social Studies” and “Science”, but also even Literature, Foreign Languages, and most crazily, Mathematics!

Why should the state of Florida, for instance, be able to ban certain Math textbooks on the crazy idea that they contain CRT (Critical Race Theory), and they do not have any connection at all?

How can anyone deal with students at any level in any curriculum field without recognizing the role of teachers and librarians in educating students on issues of race and sexuality, which are and will be dominant factors in their future lives?

This attack on educators and librarians is a movement toward totalitarian and authoritarian Fascism, and the battle against such evil is joined, and must be fought to ultimate victory!

As Trump Asks For Help From Putin To Slander Biden, Republicans Remain Silent!

The Republican Party has become a true party of treason and sedition, and not only because of their lack of concern about the January 6 Insurrection.

Donald Trump has appealed to Vladimir Putin to help him slander Joe Biden through unwarranted attacks on Hunter Biden, and Republicans enmasse, with a very few exceptions, remain silent.

And there are Republicans who support Putin, rather than Ukraine, and this includes Fox News Channel and other right wing channels, a true example of treason and sedition.

The Republican Party, the party of anti Soviet views throughout the years of the Cold War, has become complicit in support of the Russian Federation and its autocratic leader.

The Republican Party is backing autocracy against democracy, and denying basic human rights to people of color; women: gays, lesbians and transgenders; labor; immigrants; and the poor.

They have become a party of obscene, hateful, despicable behavior with no shame!

Time For Accountability For Pro Putin Politicians And Cable News Channels And Their Advocates!

In the midst of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, it is time for accountability for pro Putin politicians, and cable news channels and their advocates.

This includes such apologists as:

Donald Trump
The entire Trump family
Mike Pompeo
Josh Hawley
Ted Cruz
Rand Paul
Madison Cawthorn
Marjorie Taylor Greene
Paul Gosar
Lauren Boebert
Kevin McCarthy
Tulsi Gabbard
Jeanine Pirro
Tucker Carlson
Laura Ingraham
Sean Hannity

and a multitude of others in the Republican Party in Congress, and others on Fox News Channel, OANN (One America News Network), and Newsmax.

But realize that even some Democrats, most notably former Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, is also in that camp.

These individuals and groups need to be exposed and investigated as totalitarian and authoritarian oriented, and whatever can be done to undermine their influence must be pursued!

America And NATO Nations Must Welcome Ukranian Refugees And Overcome Nativism!

The crisis in Ukraine is creating a massive refugee problem, but the answer is that NATO and the United States MUST welcome Ukranian refugees, whether Ukranians or other nationalities, who are escaping the war against Russia, with welcome arms!

Nativism is totally unacceptable, so all of the nations in NATO, including the US, must welcome however many refugees are required, and overcome the hatred and bigotry promoted by Donald Trump and right wing talk radio and cable news stations, including Fox News Channel, One American News Network, and Newsmax!

America has always been a land of immigrants, including people escaping oppression, so there cannot be any attempt to close the doors, but rather accept the responsibility of a decent government and people to admit refugees and help them to recover from the wounds of war in their homeland!

Joe Biden’s State Of The Union Address Inspiring And Motivational On Ukraine And Domestic Agenda!

President Joe Biden gave an inspiring and motivational speech last night, with his first State of the Union Address before a joint session of Congress.

Biden made clear of our commitment to help Ukraine short of a direct intervention, since Ukraine is not part of NATO.

But US troops and equipment is right next to the Russian border in Poland, Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania, and if Vladimir Putin sends his Russian troops into any of these NATO nations, automatically, the US is in war, which could include nuclear potential!

Biden also emphasized the need for the remainder of his domestic agenda, the “Build Back Better” bill, although he did not use that term.

This speech demonstrated without question that Joe Biden has command of the facts and details, and is perfectly able to make smart and sensible judgments, despite right wing talk radio and Fox News Channel and other right wing cable sites claiming otherwise.

In a time of danger, America and the world are fortunate to have Joe Biden at the helm of leadership!

Momentous State Of The Union Address Tonight By President Joe Biden!

President Joe Biden is giving his State of the Union Address tonight to a joint session of Congress, in the midst of the Ukraine War being conducted by Vladimir Putin and the Russian Federation.

This is the most disturbing event in Europe since World War II ended in 1945, and it has emboldened NATO, and led neutral nations to take actions unexpected, including Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, and Ukraine itself, putting up a valiant fight against the invaders.

It has also made Americans realize the lovers of Vladimir Putin, including Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, and Sean Hannity of Fox News Channel, along with former President Donald Trump, former Secretary of State and Central Intelligence Agency head Mike Pompeo, and a large group of other Republicans in Congress, who are Putin apologists.

At this difficult moment, America is fortunate to have a President of great diplomatic and foreign policy expertise in place. But they also realize that Donald Trump emboldened Vladimir Putin into his aggression, by his admiration and cooperation with Putin, including the Russian intervention that elected Trump over Hillary Clinton in 2016, and encouraged the treason of Trump, which led to the January 6, 20201 US Capitol Insurrection!

Also, Biden will deal with the economics of the COVID 19 Pandemic, and will push to move ahead on more domestic legislation.

Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo, Josh Hawley And Other Republicans Back Putin In Ukraine Crisis—Crazy!

In the midst of the Ukraine Crisis promoted by Vladimir Putin and the Russian Federation, we are seeing insane developments!

Former President Donald Trump; his former CIA head and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo; Missouri Senator Josh Hawley; and a multitude of other Republicans and Trumpites, incluidng the Fox News Channel evening talk show hosts, are praising Putin, showing no concern about Ukraine, and attacking Joe Biden in the midst of the worse foreign policy emergency since the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962!

Just try to imagine what Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Senator Barry Goldwater, or Senator Joseph McCarthy would say, if they saw the Republican Party selling out to the Russians, a nation that has always been a menace and threat to American democracy!

The refusal of many Republicans to back President Biden in the midst of a massive emergency situation is a scenario that undermines our ability to deal with the danger of Ukraine being overrun by Russian military forces, in a manner not seen since World War II!

Joe Biden Becomes A Wartime President, Will Change The Equation On His Presidency!

Sadly, but unavoidably, Joe Biden has become a wartime President, which will change the equation on his Presidency.

In the midst of so many issues and controversies facing the 46th President, the issue of foreign policy and war has reared its ugly head.

Joe Biden and NATO must meet the Russian Federation threat of Vladimir Putin, with his invasion of Ukraine, before it becomes a further invasion of NATO nations, such as Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, or Poland.

This situation will have a dramatic effect on so many areas, beyond international affairs, as it is likely to have a deleterious effect on the economy, and will likely cause new debate about the old isolationist arguments of the past.

The danger of a real third World War is omnipresent, and the national security of America, as well as their NATO partners, is under threat.

And sadly, the conservative right wing is amazingly pro Russian, mind boggling to have Fox News Channel and its despicable talk show hosts embracing Putin, and showing no concern over the future of Ukraine.

So the Republican Party faces a crossroads on this matter, as to whether they are prepared to embrace this extremist viewpoint favoring Russia.

It will be a major factor in the politics of 2022 and 2024!
