Nancy Pelosi and the Dems’ Jan. 6 canine & baloney present

With inflation at gas pumps and supermarkets forcing Americans to pinch pennies, rising violent crime spreading concern and public colleges pushing racial and sexual indoctrination, most voters say it’s time for a change in Washington. 

The Democrats holding energy have run out of excuses and even stopped making guarantees of fast progress. But they do have plans to entertain you in hopes you’ll overlook your worries — and follow the party that’s bringing you all these issues. 

Lights, digital camera, propaganda!

That’s what they’re providing, beginning Thursday with a prime-time House listening to on the Jan. 6 riot on the Capitol. It’s been greater than 500 days since that terrible occasion and whereas most individuals have moved on, Democrats refuse to. 

And they’re going to make it laborious so that you can refuse to look at their efficiency as a result of all their media handmaidens have signed on to supply stay protection. 

Wall-to-wall means ABC, CBS, NBC and the cable friendlies can be displaying the identical factor on the identical time. Given how overtly the party is speaking concerning the occasion as a key a part of its survival technique within the November elections, the TV protection must be considered a campaign donation.

The one main exception is Fox News, (the place I’m a contributor), which is sticking with its top-rated prime-time lineup and displaying the listening to on Fox Business. 

Beyond the dated subject material, there are different drawbacks to staging a prime-time palooza. Congressional hearings and most members of Congress are uninteresting by definition, which is why the House has hired a former ABC-TV executive, James Goldston, to place some pizzazz into the ­manufacturing. 

Unless he plans upbeat singing and dancing, Goldston faces a problem as a result of paperwork and testimony gathered at confidential hearings months in the past don’t essentially make for riveting viewing. Moreover, the that means of incremental proof may not be clear when edited to suit the agenda of displaying a large conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election.

Perhaps the answer is to label the Thursday present as “primarily based on a real story” fairly than claiming to be really true. That would even be extra correct, on condition that viewers are solely going to see and listen to a model of occasions that matches a distinctly partisan narrative.

The scheme sounds hokey sufficient for highschool, however Speaker Nancy Pelosi has by no means been extra critical. The total Select committee probe has been an overtly partisan train on the general public dime because it started, with Pelosi blocking Republicans who objected to the truth that she began by putting a target on the entire GOP. 

She promptly proved the critics proper by eradicating the members minority chief Kevin McCarthy nominated and changed them with Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, whose speaking factors sound extra Democrat than that of most ­Democrats. 

And Pelosi isn’t stopping at only one listening to. A complete of six are scheduled for June, proving that TS Eliot was flawed when he wrote that “April is the cruelest month.”

The stakes embrace the autumn election however don’t finish there. Pelosi and her minions are squeezing Attorney General Merrick Garland for indictments not solely of the particular rioters who entered the Capitol but additionally of members of then-President Donald Trump’s administration. 

Naturally, media supplicants equipped the general public stress whereas it’s a positive factor Pelosi and the White House had been twisting arms behind closed doorways. 

The stress has been at the very least partially profitable. Although Garland’s grand jury declined to indict former Trump aides Mark Meadows and Dan Scavino for contempt of Congress reportedly as a result of they engaged in discussions and supplied some paperwork, the Justice Department did indict their former colleague Peter Navarro, who ignored a subpoena and refused to cooperate in any respect with the House committee. 

Navarro was arrested by the FBI Monday as he was about to board a home flight, handcuffed and brought to a federal lockup the place he mentioned he was put in leg irons and strip-searched whereas being handled “like an al Qaeda terrorist.”

Steve Bannon is the one different former Trump aide who has been criminally charged after he, too, ignored committee subpoenas for testimony and paperwork.

Still, the aides are merely stepping-stones to Pelosi’s final goal. Twice she impeached Trump, and twice the Senate declined to convict him. She continues to need his head on a platter.

She can’t impeach him now, however {dollars} to donuts she’s aiming to get him charged with against the law for his actions earlier than and in the course of the occasions of Jan. 6. If he had been convicted of a felony, Trump possible could be ineligible to carry elective workplace once more, that means he couldn’t run for president in 2024. 

Trump additionally refuses to produce paperwork, citing executive privilege, although that comes with an advanced authorized subject as a result of Joe Biden waived the privilege.

That transfer, as with many different elements of the Pelosi probe, units a harmful precedent of weaponizing congressional energy and that of the Justice Department for apparent political functions.

But that’s par for the course of all the Trump period. Starting with the FBI spying on his marketing campaign in the course of the Obama-Biden administration, the Deep State leaks that led to the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax after his election and the nonstop effort by congressional Dems to sabotage his presidency, one authorities establishment after one other has forfeited its credibility in a partisan feeding frenzy. 

The media’s corrupt function in the entire takedown effort is why most Americans now not belief a lot of what they see and skim.

But overlook all that. It’s showtime, and voters are invited to bop to a raft of conspiracy theories. And eat a lot of cake, too. 

Adams is ‘lifeless’ critical

The most vital quote about the way forward for New York comes from Mayor Adams. Speaking concerning the revolving-door justice system Albany and the courts have created, he mentioned Monday: “No one takes felony justice significantly anymore. These dangerous guys now not take them significantly. They consider our felony justice system is a laughingstock of our total nation.

We should get critical about this ’trigger harmless persons are dying.”

Bossed & confused

Keith Linton reads quite a bit and is troubled by a lot of it, writing: “I learn the place Joe Biden is seething and reminded his employees that he’s nonetheless the president. Then I learn the place his spouse and sister are urging the White House employees to let him get again on the street. 

“Neither of those sentences depict a president who’s in cost. And I’ve by no means had my spouse or sister intervene for me in my office.”

NY Times’ cop flip-flop

Reader Ray Starman succinctly sums up the altering perspective at The New York Times about police and crime, writing: “In different phrases, cops are not any good till you want one.”
