Nancy Pelosi and Republicans trade blows
on make-up of 9/11-style commission on
insurrection after she offers GOP just
four seats to Democrats' seven

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Republicans are butting heads over the number of members from each party that will make up the proposed 9/11-style commission tasked with investigating the January 6 insurrection. Politico reported Monday that Republicans are demanding an equal number of seats on the commission, despite being in the minority in both chambers. Pelosi has floated Democrats getting to pick seven members, while Republicans would choose four. Under the Democratic proposal, reported by Politico, Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell would each choose two members of the commission.

Comments:

The Republicans worked actively to become the minority party, and now whine about being relegated to the widdle kids' table. Suck it up, babies. Also, the purpose of the original 9/11 commission was to sweep big state complicity under the rug and also to let Saudis off the hook. Example, Jamie Gorelick was on the panel to hide her and the Clinton's complicity in making the "Chinese wall" (how racist is that by 2021 standards?) forbidding cooperation between the FBI and the CIA, and Al Gore's Blue Ribbon Airline Safety Panel agreed to not require hardened cockpit doors despite knowledge of planned hijacking threats (the Y2K Bojinka plot among them), in exchange for campaign cash from the airlines. Here, the Democrats need to hide their own complicity in the false flag "insurgency."

And the spineless Republi-Can'ts in Congress will fold in 3-2-1... Plus what does it matter? I'm sure the Republi-Can'ts will put only those members who voted to impeach President Trump on this commission anyway. Got to make their Demon-Rat masters happy!!! That is how you survive in a fascist dictatorship like the Demon-Rats currently have...

Even numbers from each party or she can have her whitewash committee of Democrats only. Anyway, she's probably going to put Schifty in charge and he'll have secret meetings in the basement Schiff room and issue his pronouncements of the dastardly deeds of that reprobrate, Trump, and the bravery of the Democrat members of Congress, including AOC who bravely fought off the invaders with their bare hands. It'll make Orwell's 1984 look like a fairy tale with the pretty little pony.

There was no Russian collusion either, but that didn't stop them, nor were the criminals punished. Christine Blasey Ford lied through her teeth in Senate testimony and is probably rolling around in a pile of cash like Scrooge McDuck. We're a banana republic now, who cares.

Calling it an insurrection is what's known as begging the question (the real meaning, not what some millenial intertubz blogger thinks it means). In other words, the outcome is a foregone conclusion, just like show trials in any totalitarian government. Pelosi now has her Reichstag fire.

Didn't it just come out that there indeed was advanced notice of potential attack, but nothing was done by the Sargent at arms who reports to the Speaker, Nancy Pelosi. This commission is being established to cover-up the warning signs that were ignored so they could later used to install new restrictions on basic human rights. McCarthy needs to use the words, cover-up, regularly to get the point home as to why they want a 7-4 seat advantage with none of those 7 being in anything close to a toss-up district so they can, and will, say whatever they want and what their constituents likely already hear on CNN and MSNBC.

I'm sorry. This whole thing is just propaganda to allow the democRATS to say there was an actual crime by conservatives. If the Republicans had any brains (which is already proven they don't) they would boycott this abomination. The "commission" will come down to this.

#6, thank you. That helps to put things into perspective. Impeach Donald Trump first. And ask questions later. If they have already concluded this was an "insurrection" that they claim was Trump's fault, why are they having this "commission?" This is being done to etch "Trump's guilt" into the brainless skulls of their stupid base. They are scum.

This is my point. The Democrats know how to wield power. Seven Democrats to four Republicans without blinking an eye. And that' is how it will be because she is the Speaker and it is her choice. Republicans would have to be fair and beg her pardon and split it up evenly...and ask her if that is OK. I do not like Ms. Pelosi, but you have to admit the old girl has big brass ones.

That was an insurrection? No weapons, no violent deaths by any except their side, and just a lot of Americans waving flags and gawking at the Capitol. The demoncrats are just begging for an insurrection, but they haven't seen one yet. As always, they steal all their elections, get some power, and promptly start to abuse it.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is a “criminal sexual predator” who “must immediately resign” over a former aide’s detailed sexual-harassment allegations, a member of Congress from upstate New York said Wednesday. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Glens Falls) also said that “any elected official who does not immediately call for his resignation is complicit in allowing a sexual predator to continue leading the great state of New York.” Stefanik’s remarks came after Lindsey Boylan, now a Democratic candidate for Manhattan borough president, published an online essay in which she accused Cuomo of kissing her “on the lips” without warning following a 2018 meeting in his Manhattan office.

A new study has revealed that the virus which causes COVID-19 can linger on fabric, such as clothing or upholstery, for up to three days. Between polyester, a poly-cotton blend and 100% cotton fabrics, the polyester posed the greatest risk, even after 72 hours; on full-cotton samples, the virus lasted one day, while the poly-cotton blend remained contaminated by viral droplets—designed to mimic human saliva—for just six hours. The breakthrough finding could be especially dangerous when it comes to clothing worn by health-care workers, said Dr. Katie Laird, a microbiologist and author of the study.

Governor Greg Abbott requested statewide designation for major disaster relief from President Biden. Biden denied the statewide designation and only approved some counties in Texas, not all of them. Abbott asked for a declaration that covered the entire state because the winter storm knocked out power and heat throughout the state, as well as leaving millions of Texans without water. Texas has 254 counties. Biden approved only 77 counties for disaster relief. The governor calls it an important first step but it falls far short of what Texas officials requested. Biden signed the declaration late Friday. It covers much of the Texas population.
