January 6 House Committee Investigating Phone Records Of Eleven Republican Congressmen And Women

The January 6 House Committee investigating the attack on the US Capitol is pursuing subpoenas to investigate the phone records of eleven Republican Congressmen and Congresswomen regarding their involvement in the events of that day.

The list includes:

Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia
Jody Hice of Georgia
Matt Gaetz of Florida
Andy Biggs of Arizona
Paul Gosar of Arizona
Scott Perry of Pennsylvania
Lauren Boerbert of Colorado
Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina
Mo Brooks of Alabama
Jim Jordan of Ohio
Louie Gohmert of Texas

This group have engaged in sedition and treason, and all pursued the refusal to accept the Electoral College results for the Presidential Election of 2020, and they have all continued to incite domestic terrorism by example in the nearly eight months since the January 6 Insurrection.

And all eleven were involved in communication with Donald Trump on that horrific day!

The truth needs to come out, and the January 6 Committee will do what is required to learn the facts of the conspiracy!

These eleven members need to be prosecuted and expelled from the House of Representatives, and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy must be pursued for prosecution for covering up the facts!

January 6 House Committee Demanding Phone Records Of Trump Staff, Family, Members Of Congress!

The January 6 House Committee is demanding phone records of all government agencies, Donald Trump White House staff, Trump family members, Vice President Mike Pence, and members of Congress who may have had phone contact with Donald Trump or meetings with him or with seditionists and insurrectionists before and on January 6, 2021.

That means many Republicans, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California and Congressmen Jim Jordan of Ohio, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Jim Banks of Indiana, Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, and others; and Congresswomen Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, and others now face full accountability and responsibility for their transgressions, if they conspired to cause the Insurrection.

They need to face prosecution if there is adequate evidence of their wrongdoing, which seems highly likely at this point, but we shall see!

A Third Of Senate Republicans Are Ignoring Donald Trump Criticism On Physical Infrastructure Legislation!

It is fascinating to witness that, at this point, a third of the 50 Senate Republicans are ignoring Donald Trump’s criticism of the Physical Infrastructure legislation in process in the upper chamber, as they realize the urgent need for such projects!

The final total of Republicans could be more than the present 17 Senators, and this, hopefully, is a sign of the waning influence of the former President over the party and its future. With Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in support, and being attacked by Donald Trump, it is a sign that the Senate is not ready to follow the House Republicans and their treasonous leadership, led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy into the abyss!

For the Republican Party to survive in shape for the future, which is highly doubtful, it MUST separate itself from the extremists that fueled the January 6 US Capitol Insurrection!

As it is, it was 8 Republican Senators who refused to accept the Electoral College vote count after the Insurrection, as compared to 139 House Republicans, nearly two thirds of all in the lower chamber.

That in itself is shocking, two thirds of the House Republicans, but only 16 percent of the Republicans in the Senate, so it is the Senate which has the opportunity to promote survival of the party future.

There needs to be a massive move to remove the cancer of House Republicans, in order to save the party for the long term!

The “G Traitors And Seditionists”—Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, Paul Gosar, Marjorie Taylor Greene!

The Republican Party has become a party of traitors and seditionists, unwilling to accept reality that Donald Trump incited the January 6, 2021 US Capitol Insurrection!

Only a small few have been willing to fight against the “party line” promoted by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and others in the party, who instead are attacking Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger as “Pelosi Republicans” for their willingness to join in the investigation by the January 6 House Committee, which began yesterday.

A particularly obscene group of four House Republican members, which should be known as the “G Traitors and Seditionists”—Matt Gaetz of Florida, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Paul Gosar of Arizona, and Marjorie Taylor Greene—held a press conference after yesterday’s hearing, trying to negate the courage shown by the four police officers—Harry Dunn and Aquilino Gonell of the US Capitol Police and Michael Fanone and Daniel Hodges of the Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department.

These four disgraces need to be prosecuted and expelled from the Congress, as traitors to the Constitution, American democracy, and the rule of law!

First Day Testimony Of Four Police Officers Before The January 6 Commission Gripping And Emotional!

Today’s first day testimony of four police officers before the January 6 Commission on the January 6 Insurrection was truly gripping and very emotional.

All four officers demonstrated great courage in how they handled themselves on January 6, working to protect the US Capitol and the members of Congress who were threatened that day by seditionists and traitors.

Particularly disturbing was the description by an African American officer of the racist statements made to his face by these insurrectionists.

Particular kudos are due to Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for their commitment to truth, facts, and holding those accountable for the disgraceful violence and bloodshed of that day.

The Republican leadership, led by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, is destroying the image of the party as supporters of the law enforcement community, by their denial of reality of what truly happened on January 6.

Kevin McCarthy must be called to testify, and not be allowed to evade responsibility for his sins in backing Donald Trump in this debacle.

Six Months Since January 6 US Capitol Insurrection

It has been six months since the January 6, 2021 US Capitol Insurrection.

Over 500 seditionists and traitors to the US Constitution have been arrested for the domestic violence, bloodshed, and destruction they perpetrated on the cradle of American democracy, and they need the full effect of law enforcement to be brought upon them.

The investigation of what happened that day is moving ahead whether or not Kevin McCarthy, Mitch McConnell and the Republican Congressional members want it to procede.

Those members of Congress or their staffs who collaborated in the events of that day need to be prosecuted and expelled from Congress.

White supremacy must be eliminated from the halls of Congress, and Donald Trump needs to be indicted for insurrection, treason, and sedition, and be shown in handcuffs, and sentenced to federal prison, as in the same disgraced company of such traitors as Benedict Arnold, Aaron Burr, Jefferson Davis and others in the American past!

A salute to Republicans Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois for being supportive of the January 6 House Committee creation, and Cheney’s accepting membership offered by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi!

Enhanced defense and readiness for the US Capitol is essential, due to the right wing threats of more violence, due to the QAnon promotion of the crazy idea of Donald Trump returning to the Presidency in August.

And greater protection is required of President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, their families, and the same for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and other Democratic and Republican members of Congress who have expressed loyalty to the Constitution and rule of law!

Dr. Anthony Fauci Attacked By Right Wing Media And Republican Politicians: Totally Reprehensible!

Dr. Anthony Fauci has been a true hero and treasure in this COVID 19 Pandemic, in his role as Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Chief Medical Advisor to President Biden, after having been ignored and rebuked much of the time by former President Donald Trump.

If Trump had followed the advice of Fauci in 2020, we would not today have reached the horrifying figure of 600,000 dead from COVID 19!

Trump was responsible for the greatest loss of life in one year in American history, and yet Republicans, many of them anti vaccinators and anti maskers, have the gall to attack Fauci, and call for his resignation.

Right Wing Media, including Fox News Channel, and Tucker Carlson, and others, have joined in the demand for resignation of Fauci!

Just look at who is calling for this—Marjorie Taylor Greene, Jim Jordan, Kevin McCarthy, Rand Paul, Tom Cotton, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and many others, all who are well known to be anti science and anti truth!

Kevin McCarthy, The Republican Party, Marjorie Taylor Greene, And Antisemitism

Kevin McCarthy has a problem on his hands, and chose to ignore it until finally forced to speak up and condemn Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia for comparing a mask mandate in the House of Representatives to the Holocaust that killed six million Jews.

Greene is an antisemite, who crazily came up with the concept of Jewish space lasers as the cause for wildfires in California and other Western states, rather than the reality of Climate Change.

The Republican Party is unwilling to promote the expulsion of Greene, who already has been forced off all committees in the House of Representatives, and now has time to cause more trouble, and yet have no impact on House committees or actions.

The woman is mentally ill, and needs to be committed to a mental institution as a danger to society!

The Republican Party is appealing to the worst elements in America, and the thought that the party could be the majority after the 2022 midterm elections is terrifying!

Kevin McCarthy wants so much to be Speaker of the House, that he will tolerate any whackos in the Republican Conference.

And now another whacko, Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, has declared she wants to run for Speaker against McCarthy in 2022!

An Investigation Of The January 6 Capitol Insurrection Will Occur With Or Without GOP Backing!

It looks as if the Republican Party will refuse to participate in a bipartisan investigation of the January 6 Capitol Insurrection.

But the House of Representatives will conduct such an investigation no matter what, and since 35 Republicans in the House voted for such an investigation, it is likely that some of them, like Lynn Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, and John Katko will cooperate and make it bipartisan even if the Republican Party as a whole stonewalls looking for the truth.

The truth and facts will come out one way or the other, but it would be better to have a bipartisan effort.

By all rights, Kevin McCarthy, Steve Scalise, and Mitch McConnell should all be forced out of office as promoting the “Big Lie” and not caring about the Capitol Police who were assaulted on January 6.

The Republican Party is in free fall, with no future as long as they kiss up to the Fascist dictator, Donald Trump, who seems likely to be indicted soon and hopefully, end up in prison!

January 6 Commission Is Essential To Investigate, Hold Accountable, And Avoid Future Insurrection!

The creation of the January 6 Commission on the Capitol Insurrection is essential, in order to investigate, hold accountable, and avoid future such insurrections.

But only 35 Republicans voted for the Commission, along with all Democrats, making the vote 252-175.

However, all 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Donald Trump in January came through, along with 25 other courageous Republicans, defying the leadership of Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise, the two leading Republican House leaders.

The Senate might prevent such a January 6 Commission, still uncertain, and it will undermine the Republican Party reputation if that occurs, so right now, the nation is in limbo until the Senate vote occurs after a likely long debate.

Ten Republicans would need to support the creation of the Commission, but only seven Senators voted to convict Trump, so the question is whether those seven and three more will be willing to do the right thing!
