While most Americans are preoccupied with skyrocketing prices and empty shelves (not to mention utterly porous borders), Democrats continue to fixate on the events of January 6.
That’s right: While most of the nation has moved on to more pressing concerns, swamp elitists are barreling full steam ahead towards their so-called “investigation” of the riot on Capitol Hill.
If only Democrats were equally dedicated to investigating Antifa’s routine attacks on federal courthouses.
For that matter, if only supposed Republicans were equally dedicated, as some of the longest-term Republicans, notably Liz Cheney, appear to have morphed into essential Democrats due to extensive swamp exposure.
Case in point: Cheney’s absurd claim that the January 6 commission, yet another one of Pelosi’s pet projects, is a bipartisan effort.
“Every member of this committee is dedicated to conducting a non-partisan, professional, and thorough investigation of all the relevant facts regarding January 6th and the threat to our Constitution we faced that day.” [Source: Fox News]
Sure. So non-partisan that almost all Republicans, aside from virulently anti-Trump Republicans, oppose it.
However, it isn’t just Democrats that oppose the commission – it is also now the courts.
At bare minimum, the courts have struck down a number of the commission’s so-called “non-partisan” tactics, especially after attorneys for former President Donald Trump filed an emergency motion to block the commission’s access to various records.
In their appeal, Trump’s attorneys drew serious attention to potential constitutional issues in doing so, particularly with regards to executive privilege.
“In this appeal, the Court will consider novel and important constitutional issues of first impression concerning separation of powers, presidential records, and executive privilege …
Put simply, this motion seeks only a brief pause in the production; it will not prejudice the other arguments or requests to be made by the parties in this important appeal.” [Source: Fox News]
Much to the rage of Pelosi, the federal appeals court decided to block the National Archives from releasing White House records, favoring Trump.
In other words, Trump wins again.
And that victory was spelled out in the black and white facts of the Court decision, the facts that Democrats claim to be so obsessed with.
“[It is] ordered that an administrative injunction be entered and appellees the National Archives and Records Administration and the Archivist be enjoined from releasing the records requested by the House Select Committee over which appellant asserts executive privilege, pending further order of this court.” [Source: Fox News]
Well, that’s a massive step forward in the right direction, especially when considering the general joke of a process that the useless January 6 commission has become.
One of the biggest reasons the process is a joke is because the commission isn’t bothering to investigate the rather obvious elephant in the room, namely Pelosi’s insufficient preparations with regards to security.
Tucker Carlson, for instance, draws attention to this rather obvious element of the January 6 protest.
“January 6th is one of the most discussed events in modern American history, and yet more than six months later, we still don’t know why that happened. No one has explained it.
Nancy Pelosi knows why it happened. She could tell us why it happened if she felt like it. The Sergeant-at-Arms reports directly to Nancy Pelosi. She is the Speaker of the House, and yet repeatedly, Pelosi has worked to stop any inquiry whatsoever into the state of security at the Capitol on January 6th.” [Source: Fox News]
Too bad Pelosi has worked overtime in establishing the January 6 commission.
Almost as if she wants to distract from the role that she herself played in the events of January 6 …
As far as traitor Cheney is concerned, she has long asserted that the committee “will not be deterred by threats or attempted obstruction.”
Well, looks like the commission may be deterred by a little element of American justice known as appeals courts … so, chew on that, “non-partisan” Cheney.
