America had its first show trial
on Tuesday and it was loathsome

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 7/28/2021 3:35:51 AM

Perhaps it’s because I grew up surrounded by extraordinarily tough people, but I found myself singularly unmoved by the spectacle in the House on Tuesday, which reminded me of a bad mash-up of Dr. Phil, Oprah, and BLM-produced soap opera, rather than a legitimate inquiry into an event that Democrats have seized upon to consolidate their power by destroying their opposition. As sobbing congressmen and Capitol Police officers took turns talking about their psychic injuries, I was alternately embarrassed for them if they were really that weak, and frightened of them if they were that sociopathic as a pathway to power.

Handpicked people, handpicked witnesses. You are fooling no one Nancy. When we take back the House, justice is coming.

There was another event yesterday, barely reported on--RSBN was there. Reps. Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, Paul Gosar, and Marjorie Taylor Greene held a press conference at the Department of Justice demanding answers from Attorney General (AG) Merrick Garland on the inhumane treatment of the Jan. 6 political prisoners. They were interrupted/drowned out by some leftist blowing a whistle obnoxiously, then the place was overrun by a rent-a-mob to the extent that they had to shut it down for fear of the representatives safety. To be honest, I was afraid one of them would be shot. Then they brought in a band in a truck. Can't take much more of this, how are we to get any justice?

i'm reminded of the newsreels featuring sobbing German women detail the 'atrocities' committed by Polish troops on the border that the Nazis used in their justification for invading. I weep for this country.

If nothing else, democrats have perfected their show trials. For the gullible, this kind of garbage works and old Nancy knows it. They turn on TV and every news network and cable news station is decrying the most horrific act in the history of the country to have occurred on January 6th. How do you combat this when most every outlet is in the tank for the democrats? I have said it once and I will say it again. We have been in the midst of an active coup d’etat and it culminated in the theft of the 2020 President election. Now they democrats are tying up loose ends with the intention to crush any opposition and hate to say it but they are accomplishing their goal. With this illegitimate political theater along with the mask mandates that hang over our heads like the sword of Damocles, which will lead to another lockdown, we seem to be in a no win situation. If democrats are this determined and tyrannical, imagine what it will be like when they shut down the audits or any results from them. You know they are not going to allow any evidence to reveal what they have done. I am worried to think what they have planned because you know they will not allow any information to reveal what they have done. They have power and they will not relinquish it regardless of what it takes. Show trials, massive crime that is never punished, corrupt politicians who do whatever needs be done for their party, a totally corrupt FBI and DOJ, an open border that will destroy us in so many ways, a bio weapon democrats funded to bring down a presidency…how in the world do good people fight this kind of evil? I just want my country back and every one of these people to face justice for what they have done. Nothing scares me more than watching these evil men and women consolidate their power to destroy our country. It truly is heartbreaking.

From the article: "A Capitol police officer murdered one of those unarmed citizens, but unlike police officers who have been involved in the deaths of violent, drugged-up men engaging in crimes, his name is still secret and his record cleared." That is a fact, and tells you all you need to know about this false-flag attack and subsequent show trial with whiny, blubbering Marxist politicians playing the victim mode - which liberals love. Ashli Babbitt was butchered, unarmed and shot in the neck with a .45, but there was no golden casket or teary-eyed speeches for her. Trump had rallies with millions, and there was never a problem. BLM and Antifa, with "their mostly peaceful protests," burned, looted, and murdered, (including retired black police Captain and beloved grandfather, David Doran), yet the Luciferin media had nothing but praise. It's time to defund the evil lying media who carries the water for these wretched commies - cut the cord.

I found the weeping congressmen particularly phony. The one thing I noticed about the demonstrators that participated in the 6 hour "insurrection" was that they were not prepared for an insurrection. Most, if not all of them, were unarmed. This "show trial" was more like something put on by the Third Reich than the proceedings of a fact finding investigation.

When all other forms of justice fail, the use of force is the only alternative. They want an insurrection and it looks like they may get one. The US Government is a sham from top to bottom and every last post, pillar and floorboard needs replaced.

Do these phony idiots think they are fooling anyone with this disgusting display? Pelosi is parading her favorite leftists through this soap opera, letting them spew their rancid and irrelevant opinions of Trump supporters, and calling it an ‘investigation’. I’d laugh if it weren’t so pathetic.

When these show trials like Mueller and Kavanaugh and the Capitol keystone kops and the fake failed impeachments and Kinzigers crocodile tears and Schiffs lies are all proven to be Pelosi “stabs“ at Trump and his America First movement shouldn’t they be held accountable money-wise and politically? By voting the bastids out of office and into prison for life? Will there ever be justice for these drama queen radical liars? When that crazed witch tore up the SOTU speech right behind President Trumps back live on tv she should have been perp-walked straight to a cell for life in a straight-jacket and never seen or heard from again because she too like the Biden’s is a part of a notorious crime family!

Show trial, absolutely, first, absolutely not. Did we already forget about Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, the Trump Impeachments? The most disturbing aspect to me is that half of the country is so deeply invested in the crusade to rid America of the deplorables that they choose not to see the pathetic obvious fraud right in their face.

If one needed still another reason to understand why American's approval rating of Congress is at an all-time low, and sinking fast, this show trial is Exhibit 'A'. Pelosi/Schiff/et al really are so drunk on power that they've lost their sanity. really is a mental disorder.

The sight of Kinzinger and Schiff and the weak, pathetic so-called police officers, venting their stress on TV was disgusting. The only good thing about this spectacle, is that the CCP is laughing so hard, they don't have time to continue to spread their evil across the world. Equating the January 6 Halloween party to the atrocities of 9/11, is despicable. Metropolitan police officer Michael Fanone said "“I feel like I went to hell and back to protect them and the people in this room...” No officer Fanone, going to hell to protect people were those hundreds of FDNY firefighters that ran into the burning Twin Towers, jogged up flights of smoke choked, burning stairwells, to PROTECT AND SAVE thousands of your fellow Americans that were slaughtered on 9/11/01. That is hell, sir. And those men didn't snivel and cry into their state issued tissues, they looked the devil and hell straight in the eye and gave their lives for their country and those poor souls that were incinerated along with them. These police officers (dare I even use the sacred words to describe these POS and the crying Schiff and Kinzinger, are are despicable. And the good Catholic Pelosi, I can't even print what I really think about her. Asking Republicans to fight back is useless. The RNC should have a commercial on every TV station that shows a picture of the Halloween clad "rioters" in the capitol juxtaposed with a picture of the planes hitting the Twin Towers and asking do you really think these two events represent the same threat to America? But no, the RNC and the plump (yes I am fat shaming) McDaniel will just use the thousands of dollars sent to them to fly around the country, purse their lips and tut tut about all that is wrong with the Biden administration they helped to install. And why is it that Donald J. Trump is the ONLY one asking those questions? Why is it always Trump left alone to do battle for half of the country? Sorry to vent on our beloved site, but the sight of this show trial nauseated me. I agree with our wonderful Ldotter #5 that we the people are greatly unmatched to fight this overwhelming army of communist democrats, state media and state tech. Only God can help us.

Fundamentally look at how the evil Democrats approached this. Instead of asking "what went wrong"or how this happened, They presented four weaklings who proclaimed themselves "victims" as they cried and recited the presentations prepared for them by the committee. No one asked why people stood down and let the crowd in. The word "ANTIFA" was likely never mentioned all day! (I could not watch it - so biased). Kevin McCarthy should remove Cheney and Kinzinger from their committee assignments or put them on the committee to investigate road kill in Alaska.

I was embarrassed for those testifying. I would not marry a man that behaved that way. I've never seen my father, husband or any man in my family behave in such a weak way. Actually no woman in my family acts that way either. If my mother and father were still alive and seen this they would have been amazed and disgusted. I don't even show that kind of emotion at funerals. It's not that I don't feel sadness but I've always felt that that kind of outward showing of emotion was to draw attention to oneself. What good does sobbing in public do other than to get others to give you attention and for me that kind of attention has never been wanted.

I finally figured out what bothers me the most. Democrats (RINO's) just can't help themselves. This is just another Russian collusion, impeachment fiasco or whatever dramatization they can create to smear Donald Trump and the conservative base. Donald Trump isn't even President of the USA anymore but they continue with the drama. Since all wisdom comes from God, it speaks volumes that they don't know what to do with their leadership. They are clueless and drama fills in the gap for ineffectiveness.

Watching these girly men cry like 5-year-old little girls who broke their dolly made me want to puke! The so-called "worst thing to ever happen" in DC is not just a heinous and wanton lie but an outrageous insult. The Brits burned Washington (including the White House!!) in 1814 and poor Lincoln had troops build defense barriers at all the roads coming in because he thought ... incorrectly ... that Bobby Lee was comin' to get him. In our 1776 revolution the Brits hunted down the Founding Fathers they could find and imprisoned several after destroying their farms & houses. Read up about the British prisoner ships in NYC harbor where they held the Minutemen and you'll see what hell is like. I hope the January 6th incident turns out to be a rallying cry like The Alamo ... and a starting, not an ending point. And every political prisoner becomes a hero just like our first fallen Americans at Bunker Hill.

Heard an interesting stat the other day. The budget for the Capitol Police Force is greater than the budget of the entire police force of many major cities (Atlanta, Philly, St. Louis). We're talking about the Capitol and a few office buildings. And it ain't like there aren't other LE groups in DC (city police, park police, uniformed secret service, heck, I'll bet that the ag dep has its own police force) either.. Sounds like one heck of a patronage job if there ever was one. No wonder all the "witnesses" were friends of Nancy yesterday.

San Francisco's broad-daylight retail heists have shocked the nation in their brazenness. They've triggered the closings of stores, such as Walgreens, and the shortening of hours from retail giants such as Target. Forty-four percent of city is planning to move out, with 80% citing out-of-control crime. But the shoplifters have got a defender, too -- in San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin. So do the drug dealers. The only problems that Chesa sees are the victims. Which tells us a lot about the state of moral bankruptcy of the wokester movement, and what the New Yorker dismisses as the "backlash."

Every year, climate-change enthusiasts tell us the earth is getting hotter. warned the world, “New 'hottest year on record' likely to occur in the next five years.” C2ES informed readers, “It’s certain: The Earth is getting warmer, and human activity is largely to blame.” Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ headline read, “Broken record: The planet is getting hotter. And hotter. And hotter.” But are we really observing record hot years consecutively? While global warming is real and has been happening since the end of the Little Ice Age in the 18th century, the claims surrounding unprecedented temperatures are, at best, highly dubious.

n the Bible there were four horsemen of the apocalypse -- sword, famine, wild beasts, and plague. In the Biden Administration there are three events spelling the doom of this administration and the Democrats: open border policy, inflation, and coercive unscientific public health measures. Catering to the party’s far left has poised the Democrats over a cliff from which I see no soft landing. Without backing off, they’ve lost the favor of the nation. But backing off will fracture the party and cost it its most fervent leftist wing -- indeed, its most strident supporters are already demanding more.

We’re finally getting some clarity about what’s going on with COVID and it’s information that makes even more perplexing the Biden administration’s fanaticism about reintroducing all the COVID restrictions that not only didn’t work last year but were lifted completely for the Black Lives Matter protests and riots. The short version is that the vaccine doesn’t seem to protect against the Delta variant, we’re all still contagious, but (thankfully) we’re not dying like flies. That news, while not uplifting, doesn’t seem to justify the Democrats’ hysteria.

With proper credit given to Mr. Charles Dickens, for many Americans living today in America, "these are the worst of times." (snip) What is becoming increasingly clear is that America is disintegrating into two warring factions. For most of the 20th century, Americans had about 35% of the voters voting conservative/Republican and 35% voting liberal/Democrat, with a healthy 30% in the middle. This 30% in the middle kept us from tearing apart. (snip) in 2021, about 48% of the voters view themselves as RedState Patriots, and about 48% of the voters view themselves as BlueState Progressives. This leaves a slim 4% (if that much) in the middle.

According to chroniclers, the Muslims numbered around 20,000 and “covered the face of the earth like locusts.” Messengers were instantly dispatched to King Richard I, who was then in Acre, preparing to sail back to England. Before the battered and bruised messengers had finished relaying their message, “With God as my guide,” Richard declared, “I will set out to do what I can,”

The January 6 commission held a dramatic first hearing with lots of crocodile tears and a few real ones.

Perhaps CDC Director Rochelle Walensky has no sense of irony. We recently passed the 500th day to slow the spread, which, as we all know, started with 15 days to slow the spread in March of 2020. Now, Walensky is saying that if we all put on a face diaper and get the jab, we can defeat the Delta variant in a few weeks: “We can halt the chain of transmission,” Walensky told “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday. “We can do something if we unify together, if we get people vaccinated who are not yet vaccinated, if we mask in the interim, we can

Provo, Utah–As Mindy Greene spent another day in the COVID intensive care unit, listening to the whirring machines that now breathed for her 42-year-old husband, Russ, she opened her phone and tapped out a message. "We did not get the vaccine," she wrote on Facebook. "I read all kinds of things about the vaccine and it scared me. So I made the decision and prayed about it and got the impression that we would be ok." They were not. Her husband, the father to their four children, was now hovering between life and death, tentacles of tubes spilling from his body.

People who do not comply with Covid-19 pandemic restrictions are mostly male, more extroverted and more likely to put their own self-interests above those of others, suggests a new study of behaviours internationally. University of Sydney researchers assessed behaviours and attitudes towards Covid regulations in 1,575 people in Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US between April and May last year, during the first wave of the pandemic. Their study, published in the journal Plos One, found that about 10% of people reported being non-compliant with restrictions. These ind

Harris will be the first sitting vice president to visit Vietnam. The trip is also an effort to rally support against China’s growing economic ascendency, according to Reuters.

Thanks to a reworked menu and long hours, Jeannie Kim managed to keep her San Francisco restaurant alive during the coronavirus pandemic. That makes it all the more frustrating that she fears her breakfast-focused diner could be ruined within months by new rules that could make one of her top menu items — bacon — hard to get in California. “Our number one seller is bacon, eggs and hash browns,” said Kim, who for 15 years has run SAMS American Eatery on the city’s busy Market Street. “It could be devastating for us.” At the beginning of next year, California

A father of five, already hooked up to a bed in a Las Vegas hospital, texted his fiancée and expressed his regret over not getting the COVID-19 shot. “I should have gotten the damn vaccine,” Michael Freedy wrote. On Thursday, the 39-year-old, known by friends as “Big Mike” died of complications from coronavirus. He contracted the disease during a vacation in San Diego with his fiancée, Jessica du Preez, and their five children—ages 17, 10, 7, 6 and 17 months. Shortly after they returned from the trip earlier this month, Freedy developed a painful skin rash.

They Are Screwed

You’d be forgiven for forgetting they existed, but the fugitive Texas Democrats, who fled their state to stop the passage of a mundane voting integrity bill, are still hanging out in Washington, DC. Where exactly, I’m not sure, but I like to imagine them sleeping on cots and eating ramen noodles every night while they mutter obscenities about Gov. Greg Abbott to each other. That’s when they aren’t spreading COVID to everyone, of course. There was a sighting a few days ago in which some of them appeared with Al Sharpton at the MLK memorial. You know, because nothing stirs support in Texas like latching onto a notorious, big-city race grifter

Dr Anthony Fauci has warned of 'some pain and suffering in the future' as coronavirus cases continue to rise, but said that he does not see the need for new lockdowns. 'I don't think we're going to see lockdowns,' Fauci told Jonathan Karl of ABC's This Week on Sunday. 'I think we have enough of the percentage of people in the country – not enough to crush the outbreak – but I believe enough to allow us to not get into the situation we were in last winter.' The nation's top infectious disease expert warned, however, that 'things are gonna get worse' and the number of COVID

Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) joined Jay Thomas on “The Jay Thomas Show” on Tuesday and took questions from local callers. During their conversation Senator Cramer was asked by a caller about Ashli Babbitt and her killer Lt. Mike Byrd. Senator Cramer refused to identify the killer but said he was grateful for the officer’s action. Senator Cramer then lied and said Ashli Babbitt was warned by police before she was shot in an ambush. This is a bald-faced lie. The officer hid in the shadows, did not utter a word, and then shot Ashli Babbitt in the neck as she climbed through a window. She was unarmed and was not a threat.

It's no secret that Vice President Kamala Harris has been doing a terrible job. And it's not just us saying so. The revelations have come over the past few months that working for her amounts to "an abusive environment." Top travel aides announced they were leaving right around the time Harris went to El Paso for her border trip. After reports of disastrous poll results, The Hill and The New York Post spoke to Democratic strategists, and they weren't playing around.A Morning Consult-POLITICO poll from last week revealed that the vice president did not have good favorability ratings,
