House Select Committee Hearing—Day One

The insurrection will be televised….and it failed….now time to bring the leaders to bear.

I post this for all those Americans that were too busy to keep up with the doings in the Hearing…..and those that just do not care.

The hotly contested committee hearings on the events of 06 January has begun…..

This who;e affair could be disastrous for House Minority leader, Kevin McCarthy, who is slobbering over becoming Speaker…..

“McCarthy is playing a terrible hand here.”

“He’s trapped politically between the Democrats and former President Donald Trump. Democrats want someone to pay for Jan. 6, and not just the Trump supporters who viciously attacked the U.S. Capitol Police and illegally entered the building,” the report states before adding, “McCarthy needs Trump heading into 2022 elections — or at least he needs Trump not going after vulnerable House Republicans — so McCarthy has to stay loyal to the former president. It’s a lose-lose for McCarthy. “

I hope it does dash his ambition for he would be a horrible Speaker and he proves it everyday.

……and it started with a bang.

Rep. Kinzinger let the idiot Right have it with both barrels…..

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, one of two Republicans on the new select committee investigating the Capitol insurrection, on Tuesday called out members of his own party for treating January 6 as another “partisan fight.”

Read his opening statement, as prepared for delivery, distributed by his office:

Harsh words for the morons in his party…beginning with McCarty and on down the line…..

The Hearing began with testimony from Capitol police officers that had to deal the the crush of slobbering Trump supporters….

Four officers present during the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol told harrowing accounts of that day as a special House panel began investigating what happened. Details, via the AP, the Washington Post, Politico, and the Wall Street Journal:

  • Capitol Police officer Aquilino Gonell: He described losing oxygen while being crushed by rioters. “This is how I’m going to die,” he remembered thinking, “defending this entrance.” He added that “there is a continuous and shocking attempt to ignore or try to destroy the truth of what truly happened that day, and to whitewash the facts.”
  • DC officer Michael Fanone: He described being “grabbed, beaten, tased, all while being called a traitor to my country.” Doctors would later inform him that he suffered a mild heart attack during the melee.
  • DC officer Daniel Hodges: “I did the only thing I could do, scream for help,” Hodges said, recalling how rioters crushed him against a door and beat him in the head and face with his own baton. “To my perpetual confusion, I saw the thin blue line flag, a symbol of support for law enforcement, more than once being carried by the terrorists as they ignored our commands and continued to assault us.”
  • Capitol Police officer Harry Dunn: He recounted how people screamed the n-word at him, saying it was disturbing that “people demonize you because of the color of your skin.” He added that other Black officers were subjected to same treatment. “January 6 still isn’t over for me.”
  • Gonell: “It was not antifa. It was not Black Lives Matter. It was not the FBI. It was (former President Trump’s) supporters that he sent … over to the Capitol that day. And he could have done a lot of things. One of them was to tell them to stop.” Gonell said it was “insulting” that Trump later praised the rioters as “loving” people. “What he was doing, instead of sending the military, instead of sending the support or telling his people, his supporters, to stop this nonsense, he begged them to continue fighting. I’m still recovering from those hugs and kisses that day.”
  • Fanone: “I feel like I went to hell and back to protect them, and too many in this room … are now telling me that hell doesn’t exist or hell actually wasn’t that bad,” he said, referring to lawmakers who he says want to downplay the riot. “The indifference shown to my colleagues is disgraceful.”
  • Before the hearing began, House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy called it a “sham” orchestrated by Nancy Pelosi. In contrast, Liz Cheney, one of only two Republicans on the panel, said they should investigate “every minute of that day in the White House.

On a side note….

Federal authorities have arrested a Donald Trump supporter caught on video bragging about macing police at the Capitol on Jan. 6.

Samuel Lazar, who was arrested in Pennsylvania on Monday, spent the months after the Capitol attack attending political events in support of the former president and his political allies. The case against him was unsealed on Tuesday.

Goes to show that the mental midgets that support Trump support the police only when they are killing people of color.

I have heard and read those slugs that try to deflect from this Hearing saying why not have a hearing about the protests in the cities?

Well for one the violence they refer to happened in a city and the insurrection was an assault of the nation…if they cannot see the difference then they are just plain stupid!

I will try to keep my readers informed on the Hearing as best I can.

Closing Thought–27Jul21

“The Steal”!

Trump will run in 2024 and the only policy he has is to keep repeating bullsh*t….his campaign will function around two words….The Steal

The big mystery about the 2024 election—whether Donald Trump will run—isn’t much of a mystery after all, according to Michael Wolff. It’s “obvious” he’s running. So writes Wolff, the author of three books on Trump and a Newser co-founder, in a New York Times essay. The author recounts his latest interview with the former president at Mar-a-Lago, including Trump’s reaction when Wolff asked him about plans for a presidential library. Trump’s face flashed “confusion” and then “anger” because the question presumes his political life is in the past. Trump “snarled” the words “no way” three times, writes Wolff. “It is an existential predicament: He can’t be Donald Trump without a claim on the presidency. He can’t hold the attention and devotion of the Republican Party if he is not both once and future king—and why would he ever give that up?”

Trump is still very much in the game, and in the interview he seemed to relish the idea of exacting political revenge on those he feels have betrayed him (especially Mike Pence and Mitch McConnell). He also boasted of his prowess in raising money for House candidates through “telerallies,” which might very well result in Republicans taking back the chamber next year. Democrats might think all those investigations currently underway against Trump will torpedo any 2024 prospects, but Trump’s view is that running for president is the best way to deflect them. “But perhaps most important, there is his classic hucksterism, and his synoptic U.S.P.—unique selling proposition,” writes Wolff. “In 2016 it was ‘the wall.’ For 2022 and 2024 he will have another proposition available: ‘the steal,’ a rallying cry of rage and simplicity.” (Read the full essay.)

This country cannot heal as long as this tool keeps the divisions growing….but that matters not to the RNC or the GOP…..

“lego ergo scribo”

‘Hallelujah Amen America Is Best Ever Hawk Eagle Patriot Apple Pie Act.’

Or as the official name of the bill, Love America Act, should be changed to the above title.

This bill has been introduced by Missouri’s insurrectionist, Josh Hawley……and his attempt to stop the teaching of the Critical Race Theory…..in other words an attempt to re-write history…revisionism at its best.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) is the latest conservative politician to take the culture wars to the schools. On Thursday, Hawley announced that he will introduce a bill that bans critical race theory and requires schools to teach kids about the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence. Schools that violate the “Love America Act” will lose federal funding.

“The Left wants to teach our kids that America is systemically racist. That’s false and it’s meant to divide. It’s time to replace lies with the truth!” Hawley tweeted. “Let’s teach our kids what unites us as Americans – what we love together. Let’s teach them the truth,” he added.

The internet is not here for it. The Love America Act was widely panned online, in part because schools already teach about the nation’s founding (some might say exhaustively). And partly because primary schools do not teach critical race theory, an academic theory that examines United States law and history through a lens that includes the influence of slavery and systemic racism. It’s mostly taught at law schools and universities.

Conservatives have nevertheless made critical race theory, often abbreviated to simply “CRT,” a primary front in their war against what they view as excessive wokeness. In their view, it’s racist to teach about racism.

The Love America Act is among more than a dozen pieces of legislation targeting critical race theory in schools at the state level, NBC News reports.

Keep in mind that Hawley was one of the Congresspeople that basically cheered on the insurrection of 06 January…

Like the rest of the GOP they hate the Constitution and what it stands for…..and will work to misinform our children at every opportunity.

These types of slugs need to be removed from all positions of influence….

All history needs to be taught……the good, the bad and especially the ugly.

Insurrection Update #9

My continuing series looking at the day of infamy, 06 January, and the events swirling around that could assist in yet another attempt to take over the government.

All the whining and bluster can be summed up by one Capitol rioter…..

“We weren’t there to steal things,” Kiczenski, who entered the Capitol on January 6, said, according to the book excerpt. “We weren’t there to do damage. We were just there to overthrow the government.”

That one statement alone should tell you everything you need to know about the day and the riot.

This is what wild conspiratorial BS wrought…..

Jarrod Copeland and Ian Rogers, who are part of a militia group linked to the Three Percenter network, are facing federal and state charges for their “specific, detailed, and serious” plot to attack a government building, destroying evidence, assembling bombs, and owning illegal machine guns. 

Prosecutors say the two men started hatching their plot on November 25, a few weeks after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election. 

“It will send a fucking message, man… Scare the whole country,” Rogers told Copeland in text messages recovered by the government.  

They initially talked about attacking the governor’s mansion but then shifted focus to the Democratic headquarters in Sacramento. According to prosecutors, they spent nearly two months planning their attack: they reviewed maps of the building’s layout, and discussed weaponry in-depth. They weighed various options; riddling it with gunfire, setting pipe bombs, or fire-bombing it.

Then there is the idiot that decided to defend herself….and uses stupidity as a defense….

A court hearing for MAGA rioter Pauline Bauer went off the rails on Monday after she began yelling at the judge while declaring herself a “sovereign citizen.”

NBC 4 Washington’s Scott MacFarlane reports that Bauer, who infamously called for the hanging of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during the Capitol riots, immediately went off the deep end by telling the judge that she is not subject to American laws.

According to MacFarlane, Bauer during her court hearing repeatedly interrupted the judge while also demanding that the court recognize her own personal judicial authority.

“Every man is independent of all laws, except those of nature,” declared Bauer, who decided to represent herself in court.

I have garden slugs that have more brains than this twat…..Burn Her Ass!

Now on to the actual Capitol rioters…..

A Florida man who breached the Senate chamber carrying a Trump campaign flag was sentenced Monday to eight months behind bars, the first resolution for a felony case in the Capitol insurrection, per the AP. Paul Allard Hodgkins apologized and said he was ashamed of his actions on Jan 6. Speaking calmly from a prepared text, he described being caught up in the euphoria as he walked down Washington’s most famous avenue, then followed a crowd of hundreds up Capitol Hill and into the Capitol building. “If I had any idea that the protest … would escalate (the way) it did … I would never have ventured farther than the sidewalk of Pennsylvania Avenue,” Hodgkins told the judge. He added: “This was a foolish decision on my part.”

Prosecutors had asked for Hodgkins to serve 18 months behind bars, saying in a recent filing that he, “like each rioter, contributed to the collective threat to democracy” by forcing lawmakers to temporarily abandon their certification of Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory over President Trump and to scramble for shelter from incoming mobs. His sentencing could set the bar for punishments of hundreds of other defendants as they decide whether to accept plea deals or go to trial. He and others are accused of serious crimes but were not indicted, as some others were, for roles in larger conspiracies. Hodgkins pleaded guilty last month to one count of obstructing an official proceeding, which carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop lesser charges, including entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct.

BS!  This tool should have served the full sentence…..I do not care if he apologized….there has got to be a lesson for stupidity.

8 months?  Tommy Chong of Cheech and Chong fame, was given 9 months for selling a bong…..and his ‘crime’ did not involve violence or destruction…..

And then there are the idiots that boast about their violence on social media…..and they get busted.

Andrew Quentin Taake was arrested Friday by the FBI, which has accused him of pepper-spraying officers and striking them with a metal “whip-like device” at the January 6 Capitol riot.

And apparently it was Taake’s online dating foray that helped get him in trouble.

Taake, 32, of Houston, was tipped off to the FBI by someone who said they hadn’t met him — but was texting with him about the riot — on Bumble.

“Witness 1 messaged Taake on a dating app, Bumble, while he was in Washington, D.C.,” prosecutors allege. “Although Taake and Witness 1 never met in person, Taake discussed his participation in the riot with Witness 1 and sent Witness 1 several pictures of himself, including a picture of himself taken on January 6, 2021, after he was allegedly pepper sprayed by law enforcement officers. Witness 1 said Taake admitted to being inside the U.S. Capitol for approximately 30 minutes.”

This goes to show just how mentally challenged these in-bred slugs truly are.

These idiots are turning on each other trying to get a better deal from the government….

Authorities in Ohio have arrested a suspect in the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, after a fellow rioter allegedly identified him and provided investigators with his phone number.

Erik Rau was arrested Thursday after being identified by fellow Central Ohioan Derek Jancart, Columbus’ ABC affilate reports.

“Court documents say Jancart admitted to entering the building with Rau and provided investigators with Rau’s phone number,” the station reported. “After a search warrant was filed, phone records show Rau was at the Capitol during the insurrection.”

Jancart was arrested in February after being identified by a former co-worker in a photo he posted on Facebook showing him inside the Capitol, the Columbus Dispatch reported. “We’re in,” Jancart wrote in the caption.

Closing Thought–26Jul21

Let me see….a 30 something that lives with his Mama….has to have a special diet….dresses in shaman’s headdress…paints his bod…..howls…..and thinks he is related to Jesus…..would you think this dude is mentally ill?

The lawyer for the QAnon Shaman has confirmed that his client is off his nutter…..

One of the most recognizable members of the mob that stormed the Capitol has been diagnosed with multiple mental illnesses that include transient schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, his lawyer tells Reuters. Psychologists with the Federal Bureau of Prisons made the findings after testing Jacob Chansley, aka the QAnon Shaman, says attorney Albert Watkins. A shirtless Chansley was widely photographed in the Capitol building wearing a headdress with fur and horns. He faces six charges stemming from the riot, per Insider, but Watkins is now working on a plea deal in the wake of the mental health diagnoses. The test results mesh with what the US Navy found in regard to Chansley back when he served in 2006, Watkins adds.

“What we’ve done is we’ve taken a guy who is unarmed, harmless, peaceful … with a pre-existing mental vulnerability of significance, and we’ve rendered him a chocolate soup mess,” says Watkins. He says his client’s problems have been made worse because of solitary confinement. Prosecutors have generally pushed back against the notion that Chansley is harmless. They say video evidence shows Chansley inside the Senate chamber, where he called then VP Mike Pence a “f—ing traitor” and left behind a threatening note. Watkins, though, says his client is delusional and has expressed the belief that he is directly related to Jesus and Buddha.

Good!

Now put this d/bag in a rubber room for 20 years…..he deserves nothing for his part in the insurrection…..

“Clapton Is God”

A very old piece of graffiti from the days of old……made the rounds on posters, t-shirts and other merchandise…..I would give you a look at the graffiti but there are too many making cash off the work….

Use your imagination….Clapton Is God is painted on a wall and there is a dog peeing on it

The news has me thinking of this……it seems the Clapton is playing God again with the pandemic….

Eric Clapton is no fan of a new policy in the UK that will require people to show proof of COVID-19 vaccinations for entrance into large venues and nightclubs come September. “I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present,” Clapton wrote in a Wednesday statement shared by Robin Monotti Graziadei, the same London-based architect and film producer who in the spring shared a letter in which Clapton, who has peripheral neuropathy, complained that AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine left him unable to use his hands and feet for two weeks. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the vaccine passport policy on Monday, hours after COVID-19 restrictions were lifted in the UK.

Young people flooded into nightclubs, but Johnson warned such people that “some of life’s most important pleasures and opportunities are likely to be increasingly dependent on vaccination.” “By the end of September, when all over-18s will have had their chance to be double-jabbed, we are planning to make full vaccination the condition of entry to nightclubs and other venues where large crowds gather,” he said, per the Guardian, which describes “an immediate backlash from Conservative backbenchers and the entertainment sector.” “Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel the show,” said Clapton, who’s next scheduled to play in the UK, at London’s Royal Albert Hall, in May, per the Guardian.

I see that health is not important….he wants to keep the cash rolling in and the public be damn.

So I think that dog in the photo has the right idea.

Clapton needs to retire to his exclusive Caribbean island resort and let the world be safe.

God these rockers are a greedy lot!

Mississippi Sets The Stage

My state of Mississippi has the distinction of many things…..we lead the nation on child poverty, one of the most unhealthy of states, most littered state,….on and on…..

Now Mississippi trying to be known as the state that brought down Roe v Wade…..

The Mississippi attorney general on Thursday asked the US Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, a challenge to the 1973 law that’s been expected since May, when the high court agreed to hear a case involving a Mississippi law banning most abortions after 15 weeks. Lower courts blocked the law, known as the Gestational Age Act, and the state is appealing, NBC News reports. Attorney General Lynn Fitch said the Roe v. Wade ruling, as well as the other major ruling legalizing abortion in the US, 1992’s Planned Parenthood v. Casey, were “egregiously wrong.” She said there is an “overwhelming” case to be made for overruling them, CNN reports.

“The conclusion that abortion is a constitutional right has no basis in text, structure, history, or tradition,” Fitch said in a new brief to the justices. The request is notable, because when Mississippi asked SCOTUS to hear the case, it said doing so did not “require the court to overturn either Roe or Casey.” Politico says this brief “raises the stakes,” but notes that court watchers tend to think the justices are more likely to stop short of overruling Roe, while continuing to allow states to place an increasing number of restrictions on abortions. Axios points out the possibility that President Biden will protect abortion rights via an executive action if Roe is overturned. Oral arguments are expected in late fall or early winter, with a decision possible by June.

With a conservative ideologues on the Court this could well be the death throes of Roe v Wade….

And Mississippi will be the final nail in the coffin of reproductive rights.

I am so proud….(that is sarcasm in case you missed it)

Does Fido ‘Get You’?

It is no secret that I am a dog person….since my earliest memories there has been a canine member of the family and he was a cocker spaniel named Sarge…..and today there is my ‘hunter-seeker’ a Coonhound named MoMo.

I wrote awhile back about how ‘puppy eyes’ was an evolutionary thing with dogs……https://lobotero.com/2019/06/23/those-puppy-eyes/

Plus I wrote about the way dogs can read human emotions……https://lobotero.com/2016/01/16/why-are-dogs-mans-best-friend/

(Sadly both of those ‘friends’ have passed on)

But to the point….does your canine friend ‘get you’?

Dogs really are “man’s best friend” and “get” humans in a way other animals simply can’t relate to. Sorry “Game of Thrones” fans, a new study finds even the dog’s closest relatives — wolf pups — don’t gel with people the same way.

Researchers from Duke University say 14,000 years of domestication plays a big part in this. In fact, man’s best friend has actually evolved to understand human gestures and look to humans for help in a way that no other animals do.

Study authors, who compared wolf pups raised by humans to dogs who had barely any contact with people, discovered that dogs still outperform their wolf counterparts in tests of their understanding and co-operation with humans. The team behind the research adds their results show dogs instinctively understand people.

“This study really solidifies the evidence that the social genius of dogs is a product of domestication,” says Dr. Brian Hare, a professor of evolutionary anthropology, in a university release.

Dogs ‘just get’ humans in ways other animals can’t, evolutionary scientists conclude

Can Your Dog Manipulate You? Research Says Yes.

There is a reason that dogs are man’s best friend and science has proved it.

As a bonus….does “Fido’ know when you are lying to them?

Answer:  you bet your butt they do!

What the researchers discovered is that unlike in previous similar experiments with children under age 5, Japanese macaques or chimpanzees, dogs weren’t so quick to believe our lies.

The scientists believe that young children and non-human primates were more likely to believe the lie because of the person telling it, but the dogs more often than not just went with what their eyes were telling them – the person was lying.

Why Not Diplomacy?

Yes more history!

Live and learn

This is for all those readers that are interested in the American Civil War.

Most people know the major players and the major engagements…..but what about before the first shots were fired in South Carolina?

Since I am a student of conflict and ways to try and avoid a disastrous war…..people have asked me why there was no diplomacy to try and avoid the deadly conflict…

Well there was diplomacy but it is just not interesting enough for the history books….plus it is not as romantic as the idea of a ‘noble cause’…..

Here is the look at diplomatic attempts during the war…..

February 2, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln and his Irish valet sneaked out of Washington City and took a steamboat down to the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. The next day he met with three representatives of the Confederacy to discuss ending the Civil War. The Hampton Roads Peace Conference, as it’s known, is notable not for what was accomplished – nothing was – but for how, when, and why it took place at all.

In February, 1865, the Confederacy was clearly on the brink of collapse. The rebel armies were dogged but much diminished. General William Tecumseh Sherman had sacked Atlanta and was leaving a trail of devastation through Georgia. Ulysses S. Grant had Robert E. Lee pinned down at Petersburg, a rail center that was Richmond’s last defense. A Union naval blockade had cut off all supplies. Everyone knew the end was a few months away at best.

With the war all but won, why would Lincoln go out of his way, literally, to parley with the enemy? The simplest answer is that he was looking already to the postwar future, and how best to deal with the insurgents. Many hardliners in his Republican Party and his Cabinet thought they knew the answer: utterly crush the rebels militarily, hang their leaders, free all their slaves, confiscate their other property, and subjugate the South as a conquered, occupied enemy.

Lincoln believed that was no way to heal the nation. With the weight of more than half a million war dead on his soul, he “wanted to end the war quickly, peacefully if possible, not only to save lives, money, and property but also to build a stronger foundation for reconstruction,” writes James B. Conroy, author of a detailed book about the conference, Our One Common Country. “If the Confederacy could be persuaded to return to the Union voluntarily, enticed by reasonable concessions, the stage would be set for a more amicable, productive future than a military conquest could produce.”

Those American Wars

Most Americans learn of those wars fought on American soil….wars like the French and Indian War, revolution, the War of 1812….but have you ever heard of the Conojocular War?

Probably not.

The year is 1736 and Pennsylvania and Maryland are at odds over settlers….

The colonial governments of Pennsylvania and Maryland became embroiled in the dispute when settlers from each colony started crossing the Susquehanna River back and forth and creating settlements in what was perceived to be each other’s territory.  Questions about legal claims to the land, private ownership deeds, land taxes, and law enforcement in the disputed areas precipitated violence.

The first violence consisted of an incident where 2 Pennsylvanians taking a ferry across the river attacked the ferryman, Thomas Cresap (hence the name, Cresap’s War). Maryland had been infringing on the west side of the river into Pennsylvania territory based on a self serving interpretation of the charters for each colony.  Cresap had been given 500 acres by the Maryland government in land claimed by Pennsylvania.

Much of the conflict centered on Cresap, an obvious opportunist that engaged in bullying and thuggery among the settlers, using ruffians as his gang and rewarding them with land.

May 25, 1738: “Conojocular War” Between Pennsylvania and Maryland is Ended

Something your American History class left out…..and it is not the only historical event that is sadly under taught.

Americans have always been at odds with their neighboring states…..and the conflict continues today.
