January 6 House Committee

If Donald Trump Announces For President Soon, The Presidential Campaign Of 2024 Has Begun!

Presidential campaigns used to begin about a year before the election.

For instance, John F. Kennedy formally announced for President at the beginning of January 1960.

But with the development of primaries and some caucuses over time, it has become customary that once the midterm elections take place, that early in the third year of the Presidential term, we see candidates announcing for President.

But it is now indicated that Donald Trump may announce as early as this month, July 2022, four months before the Midterm Elections of 2022.

Supposedly, he is trying to divert attention from the January 6 House Committee, and the testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson, which makes clear that Trump was engaged in treason and sedition on January 6, 2021, when the US Capitol was attacked.

The potential exists for up to 25 Republicans becoming candidates for the White House.

And if Joe Biden chooses not to run, or even if he does, there is also the potential for an equal 25 Democrats to engage in the Presidential campaign, although the number proabably would be lower than the number of Republicans.

The Trump Presidency Reached A New Low With Cassidy Hutchinson Revelations Yesterday!

After seven years of the Donald Trump nightmare, since he announced for President on June 16, 2015, a new low has been reached, with the Cassidy Hutchinson revelations yesterday before the January 6 House Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 Insurrection on the US Capitol.

It is now clear that Donald Trump wanted to lead the Insurrection himself by going to the US Capitol in support of armed supporters, and that the Secret Service agent was physically under threat from Trump, trying to force his automobile to take him where the threat was massive.

Nothing that Richard Nixon did a half century ago comes anywhere near the lawlessness and lack of concern for the Constitution and rule of law by Donald Trump!

Cassidy Hutchinson clearly is the equivalent of John Dean and Watergate fifty years ago, and realize she is the latest in line of a long list of Republicans who have testified, not Democrats!

And yet, delusional and clueless Trumpites still, somehow, can defend a man who had no regard for human life, except his own!

There is no way to give Donald Trump a pass, and he MUST be prosecuted for a whole group of crimes that no one else could escape prosecution, and he must be prevented legally from ever running for public office again!

Donald Trump Is Criminal In So Many Ways!

The January 6, 2021 House Committee Hearings make it clear to anyone who is sane, that Donald Trump is criminal in so many ways!

Trump was willing to see his Vice President Mike Pence assassinated by a mob!

Trump was willing to see mass loss of life of members of Congress, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi!

Trump was willing to pressure state legislators to promote a false narrative on a stolen election, “The Big Lie”, and used the power of his office to intimidate many, although there was, thankfully, pushback!

Trump was willing to intimidate and terrorize election workers, and destroy their sense of safety!

Trump was willing to promote extremists against Republicans who dared to challenge anything he said or did at any time in his Presidency and since he left office!

Face the facts:

Trump is a criminal, and could have been part of Organized Crime!

Trump is a seditionist and traitor, inspiring the US Capitol attack, and defying constitutional norms!

Trump is an evil force, undermining American democracy, and incites his supporters, which include anti semites, nativists, racists, white supremacists, misogynists and homophobes!

Donald Trump and all of his collaborators need to be held accountable legally, and face the consequences of trial, conviction, and imprisonment, as a lesson to any future authoritarian elements, who would wish to emulate his actions and behaviors!

Donald Trump, The Criminal Grifter Of Gullible, Naive Americans!

In the same vein as yesterday’s post, the second session of the January 6 House Committee hearings demonstrated that Donald Trump is a criminal grifter, appealing to gullible, naive Americans to send him money to fight what he called “The Big Steal”, that he won the Presidential Election of 2020.

Instead, that myth is the “Big Lie”, and it is now clear that people around Trump told him, conclusively, that he had not won the election, but Trump kept on lying, and spread the hysteria that led to the January 6 Insurrection at the US Capitol.

This caused loss of lives of Capitol Police; massive number of injuries among these loyal servants of the Capitol; destruction of the center of American government; and threats to Vice President Mike Pence, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and all of the Congressmen and Senators at the US Capitol that day.

This is clearly the example of Donald Trump, the crooked businessman, making money off the supposed election results, with at least $250 million raised, and no accountability as to what has happened to that illegal fundraising amount.

This is criminal activity, as everything else is regarding Donald Trump, and the Department of Justice and Attorney General Merrick Garland are examining what the January 6 House Committee has gathered as evidence.

Hopefully, this will lead to criminal charges against Donald Trump, as no one, not even a former President, should be immune to prosecution for crimes committed in office or out of office!

The Gullibility Of Millions Of Americans Who “Worship” Donald Trump: Terrifying!

As one watches and analyzes the January 6, 2021 Insurrection at the US Capitol, it becomes ever more stunning and shocking as to how gullible, how ignorant, how bamboozled, millions upon millions of Americans are regarding Donald Trump!

Any sane, intelligent person would realize that Donald Trump is a charlatan, a phony, a crook, who has exploited people throughout his lifetime, but he has always been able to get away without accountability, other than having to pay some monetary judgments!

The lack of education and good judgment of millions of Americans, who “worship” Donald Trump, and are a cult like group who would follow him anywhere, is terrifying!

And the fact that Donald Trump has never won the popular vote, and has had a deficit unmatched by any other Presidential candidate, a total of nearly ten million negative support in two elections, is clearcut evidence of the dire need to change the Presidential election system, so that, as with other elections at any level, the winner of the most votes is inaugurated!

The Electoral College has become a system that undermines American democracy!

Donald Trump Should Be Facing Charges For January 6, 2021 Insurrection!

With the January 6 House Committee deep into its public hearings and testimony about the January 6, 2021 Insurrection, the evidence is building up of former President Donald Trump’s direct involvement and incitement of the horrendous events of that day at the US Capitol.

Can any sane person really believe that Trump does not have a major input into what happened, including his association with the “Proud Boys” and “Oath Keepers” domestic terrorist groups; and the involvement of a multitude of people around him in laying plans for the chaos of that day?

Can a President who endorsed harm against his own Vice President, Mike Pence, be allowed to go without charges that any other person would face?

It is clear that Donald Trump knew and knows he lost the 2020 Presidential election, but his own ego and Fascist authoritarian leanings made him unwilling to accept reality!

It is a difficult issue for the Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland to take action, but if the Constitution and rule of law are to matter in the future, then Donald Trump must face charges!

Liz Cheney And Adam Kinzinger Are Heroes For Upholding The Constitution And Rule Of Law!

As the January 6 House Committee has opened its public hearings, one thing is very clear!

Congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Congressman Adam Kinzinger of Illinois are heroes for upholding the Constitution and rule of law!

Sadly, there are only a handful of other Republicans who are upholding the Constitution and rule of law in the 2022 Republican party.

Cheney is in a battle for her House seat, after having been stripped of her third ranking position, as House Republican Conference Chair. Despite her father, Dick Cheney, having been earlier a Congressman for ten years, the Wyoming Republican Party has repudiated her, and she faces a hotly contested primary with a Donald Trump endorsed opponent.

Adam Kinzinger is not running for reelection, since his seat has been eliminated by the loss of an Illinois Congressional seat in the 2020 Census, but he has also been repudiated by the Republican Party in his state, and even by family members.

History will record them in a positive fashion, while the historical image of their opponents, including Kevin McCarthy, Jim Jordan, and innumerable others, will be condemned for sure!

First Session Of January 6 House Committee Hearings Makes Clear Donald Trump Guilt In Insurrection!

The January 6 House Committee, investigating the January 6, 2021 Insurrection at the US Capitol, had its first public session last night.

It was gripping, detailed, and compelling, and anyone who cares about American democracy would clearly see that there is no doubt of the guilt of Donald Trump in the worst crime ever perpetrated by any President of the United States!

The Republican Party has become a cult around a very sick, demented, dangerous man, with only a small percentage of those in Congress and in state government positions putting the Constitution and rule of law ahead of their own personal ambitions!

Action needs to be taken as the nation is in a constitutional crisis that may be worse than the Civil War, if nothing is done to stop the extreme Fascism that Trump and most Republicans in Congress represent!

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!

Donald Trump Had No Concern About The Threats To The Life Of Mike Pence!

It is stunning and hard to fathom that a President would have no concern about the threats to the life of his Vice President.

Yes, Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr did not get along.

Neither did John Quincy Adams and John C. Calhoun get along.

And also, Andrew Jackson and Calhoun were at odds.

But never has a President welcomed harm on his Vice President, as Donald Trump did toward Mike Pence on January 6, 2021!

He showed support for the lynching, the hanging, of Mike Pence!

This is incomprehensible, that any political leader would not be concerned, and loyal to those who work around him!

How could any decent human being, no matter what his political and ideological loyalties, support and continue to excuse Donald Trump for his lack of empathy, decency, compassion, toward even his own Vice President?

But Donald Trump has no regard for human life, and this will be exposed by the January 6 US House Committee, as it starts holding public hearings on this Thursday evening, June 9!

Donald Trump needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, as a seditionist, a traitor, a criminal, whose lust for power encouraged massive lawlessness and destruction at the US Capitol!
