Well isn't this awkward

Quote
    The January 6 committee’s key witness, Cassidy Hutchinson, called the committee “bs” in a text message obtained exclusively by the Daily Caller.

    On Feb 1. Hutchinson sent a text to a conservative activist with connections to the First Amendment Fund, which is a group started by the American Conservative Union that helps Trump officials cover costs for Jan. 6 lawyers. Matt Schlapp said Hutchinson approached CPAC for help through the First Amendment Fund. Schlapp said he is happy they did not end up assisting her because she was relaying White House “hallway gossip as fact.”

An update from Ray Epps himself:
After months of watching from the shadows as public figures he once respected — Mr. Trump among them — tarred his name and destroyed his reputation, Mr. Epps decided that he wanted to answer that question for himself.

“I am at the center of this thing, and it’s the biggest farce that’s ever been,” he said. “It’s just not right. The American people are being led down a path. I think it should be criminal.”
...
While he wants to clear his name, he is under no illusion that he will ever manage to divorce it fully from the lies.

“They’ll always be associated,” Mr. Epps said. “You can’t convince some people. There are extremists out there that you’ll never convince them that they’re wrong.”
He's right, and I don't think this interview will convince people either.
In the moral, catatonic stupor America finds itself in today it is only disagreement we seek, and the more virulent that disagreement, the better.

Universal Voting makes that impossible because a majority of the people will believe whatever lie they're told and vote how they're trained, and then you still have the election fraud to contend with.

Our system is permanently broken/corrupted and there is no fixing it from the inside.

Restricting voting to land owning male citizens sometimes doesn’t seem sooooo bad.  Maybe making it net federal tax paying citizens instead would be reasonable.  Keep the leeches from voting more money to themselves.

Since when does the DOJ need evidence to investigate Trump?

This has a familiar stench to it

Quote
The Secret Service deleted text messages from Jan. 5 and Jan 6, 2021, that were requested by officials investigating the breach of the U.S. Capitol, the Department of Homeland Security inspector general's office said in a report this week. 

Inspector General Joseph Cuffari said in a letter to the Congressional committees investigating the Jan. 6 riot that "many" messages were "erased as part of a device-replacement program" after his office had requested electronic communications from the Secret Service during their "evaluation of events at the Capitol on Jan. 6."

Jan. 6: Secret Service deleted texts requested by investigators, watchdog report says
The Secret Service denied the claim that it deleted text messages, saying some records had been lost during a device migration

The Colbert Nine have had all charges dropped. In the meantime, grandmas are still going to jail for walking through an open door.

It's another insurrection!

There's nothing scarier to me than a white female octogenarian walking down the sidewalk with a smile and holding an American Flag.  Why was she not taken down by SWAT? How can we let this stand?

AOC is reporting she is hiding under her desk because the octogenarian tried to date her.
