The left is pushing for a “commission” to investigate what happened on January 6th at the Capitol.
Our political elites don’t care what happened during the “summer of love” when over 20 people were killed, businesses were destroyed, and cities burned to the ground in the name of George Floyd, but they do care that a podium that Nancy Pelosi uses was stolen.
That’s the current state of our country…
The left loves to call that day an “insurrection.”
It wasn’t. Sorry, it just wasn’t, I don’t care how often Pelosi and Rachel Maddow say it is – that doesn’t make it true.
And if they get their “commission” they’ll just use it as a political weapon to try and further hurt President Trump, his supporters, and any Republican running in 2022.
But, not so fast – because there’s a little something that happened on January 8th, that could land Pelosi in a lot of HOT WATER.
Unbeknownst to most Americans, the real so-called “insurrection” actually happened two days after January 6th, as Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California bypassed the military chain of command and made an appeal to Army General and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to take action against President Trump.
A politician with no actual place in the national security chain of command attempting to give orders to the nation’s top military officer. That is as close to an insurrection as this nation has ever seen. And now both the Pentagon and Pelosi are trying to cover up the call. That’s why Judicial Watch is suing for the info.
FNC: “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s January phone call with U.S. Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — in which Pelosi raised concerns about what she described as an ‘unhinged’ President Trump — is now the subject of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit. Watchdog group Judicial Watch announced its legal action this week, saying the call between the House speaker and the nation’s top military officer – regarding the powers of a sitting president – set a “dangerous precedent” that could affect future presidencies. The group said its Jan. 11 request for information regarding the Jan. 8 call between Pelosi and Milley received no response from the Department of Defense.”

“This morning, I spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike,” Pelosi wrote. “The situation of this unhinged President could not be more dangerous, and we must do everything that we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy.” Later, she added: “As you know, there is growing momentum around the invocation of the 25th Amendment, which would allow the Vice President and a majority of the Cabinet to remove the President for his incitement of insurrection and the danger he still poses,” Pelosi wrote. “Yesterday, Leader Schumer and I placed a call with Vice President Pence, and we still hope to hear from him as soon as possible with a positive answer as to whether he and the Cabinet will honor their oath to the Constitution and the American people.”
Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said that if Pelosi’s description of the call with Milley is true, their discussion “sets a dangerous precedent that could undermine the president’s role as commander in chief and the separation of powers.” It does more than that. It is a power-crazed Pelosi attempt to influence the military to take an active role in national politics. And that is insane.
And if this “commission” goes through, and the Republicans don’t POUNCE on this, there should be absolute hell to pay at the ballot box for every last one of them.
Once again, Republicans have a golden opportunity to shift the narrative back on the Dems and call them out for inciting an “insurrection.”
Will they do it?
Not on their own. We need to keep the pressure on them, relentlessly.
