While I am pumping up my tires for my daily bike ride, I have the “capitol insurrection hearings” playing on my TV with the sound turned off. This is the best way to take in what is happening.

Interesting depiction of what happened that day

I can see why you are running away

The best way to take it in is to ignore it. It's nothing more than a circus side show.

Capitol Police are testifying right now
Why do you want to ignore them?

Don‘t you think they are heroes?

How long does it take you to pedal fifty miles a day?

A fact witness gets to preside over and select who asks the questions.

The very definition of a kangaroo court.

I'd be interested in what the police officers had to say. It'd be one thing to be assaulted in a riot by Antifa or black thugs mad about some real or fake police brutality, but imo nearly all Americans find that unacceptable. But here, something like 30% of Americans think it was ok to beat up cops. That's just unacceptable.

It’s a complete fraud to distract you from the serious damage of the Biden 4th Reich

Do you think they are partisan against Republicans?

I'd be interested in what Peloski has to say about being notified in advance of the possibility for a mob, and doing nothing about it.

Oh wait, she's running the shit show.

It appears that this House Select Committee hearing is turning into a political circus where the focus is on painting the movement that believe the 2020 Presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump and manifested its belief about the election in the actions that took place at the Capitol on January 6th as deplorable Americans. An optimally prudent and good analysis of the current situation would conclude that the Select Committee is never going to be able to provide a thorough and optimally good study of what transpired on Jan. 6th because it cannot get the full input from the protestors because they cannot testify en masse because they will criminally incriminate themselves if they do so; America will have to wait to get such a study around ten to fifteen years from now when a balanced President on this matter pardons all the protesters except for ones that caused true serious bodily injury or stole significantly important things from the Capitol which would then enable these protesters to fully testify to an investigative committee. It was hoped for that the House Select Committee could at least get permanent records of key players in the whole incident like the many security personnel and security authorities that had a role in this whole incident because when the pardons come down and there is able to be a truly good investigation these security people testimony may then be less that fully valuable because of the time that transpired. These select committee hearings should be held like good grand jury hearing and lawyers the specialize in grand jury investigations should do the lion share of the questioning. It is a joke witnesses giving opening statements where they embark on taking sides in the whole matter, it doesn't matter how valid their point of view. It is a joke when witnesses are asked how they feel about what the protestors did and Republican politicians inappropriate comments about the incident; the witness should be questioned about what they heard, observed and what transpired on that day and the run up to that and their professional assessments of the incident they should not be permitted to go on diatribe about the character depravity of the members of the mob and Americans that sanction that abhorrent behavior!

In 1933 Hitler established special courts throughout Germany to try politically sensitive cases. Dissatisfied with the 'not guilty' verdicts rendered by the Supreme Court (Reichsgericht) in the Reichstag Fire Trial, Hitler ordered the creation of the People's Court (Volksgerichtshof) in Berlin in 1934 to try treason and other important "political cases." Under Roland Freisler, the People's Court became part of the Nazi system of terror, condemning tens of thousands of people as "Volk Vermin" and thousands more to death for "Volk Treason." The trial and sentencing of those accused of complicity in the July Plot, the attempt to kill Hitler in July 1944, was especially unjust.

The Reichstag Fire Trial is equivalent to the January 6th episode is that both are being labeled treason by the powers that be in order to "clean" house of all political opponents.

So the Congressional committee, filled with Trump hating democrats and a few Trump hating Republicans, are equivalent to the Hitler tribunals.

Among all the rioters on January 6th there were a group of heavily armed militia groups that intended to do real harm to our nation. When Trump was at the White House stirring up the crowd before the riot and attack on the capital. His close friend Roger Stone was at the Capitol consulting with the militia leaders. Of all the investigations going on, this is the one that should be given the most priority. It was my belief he was coordinating the attack at Trump's request. All means necessary should be used to get to the bottom of this. Remember, the people who invaded the capital and attempted to overthrow our government did so carrying Trump flags.
