Democrats on the House Select Committee investigating the Capitol riot are planning to request that telecommunications companies preserve the phone records of Trump family members and Trump-aligned lawmakers who attended the 'Stop the Steal' rally on Jan. 6, it was revealed on Monday. The records request could determine who the committee plans to call forth as a witness. It's not clear how the committee plans to ensure compliance from telecommunications companies with its request.(Snip)The committee is requesting preserved phone records of Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Lara Trump and Kimberly Guilfoyle, Don Jr.'s girlfriend. The committee has not made public the full list


The American political caste system is designed to prevent anyone from outside The Club from ever running for office again. And the committee will ensure compliance from telecommunications companies in the usual way, by paying them a large sum of taxpayer money. They're always glad to oblige, being part of the New Stasi's domestic surveillance system.

Way back under Obama the IRS sent around an internal memo leaked to the public. In it was a huge admission that Obama was using the NSA to spy on Americans via their phone use. Also in it was the reminder that the IRS must never use ONLY those illegally obtained records to destroy an "enemy of Obama." Rather the IRS should figure out some alternative LEGAL way to obtain the same evidence, then g destroy the "enemy of Obama." Looks like Pelosi is in the process of trying to do this same thing. She, and her cronies on that "commission," need to be stopped.

Seriously!!!!! With the Afghanistan quagmire/debacle looming over us, they still harp on January6th? These people are evil. So, somebody tells Joe AH what to do? GMAB. But, nobody tells Pelosi what to do. She orders edicts and whatever she wants all the time. She needs to rot, and suffer.

Gee, who needs "evidence"? Isn't the job of the witch-hunt-committee-where-the-witches-are-doing-the-hunting to have a nice public show trial? Just subpeona everybody from the lowest elected Republican dog catcher to President Trump. Maybe you can get the Capitol Architect to build some of those nice cages we see over in the dictatorships when they purge their political opponents.

Didn't the FBI already issue a report that they found scant evidence of any connection with President Trump and Roger Stone to the January 6th matter? I'd rather know the phone records of that Antifa guy from Utah who wore Trump gear, and sold his video to the media outlets, for example.

Millions watched the televised events that day as white and dropped off black clad antagonists a few blocks from the Capitol about the time Pres. Trump and the peaceful people gathered to hear his speech blocks away. We saw on TV who the troublemakers were and none were in that peaceful crowd of Americans with Pres. Trump. We also saw uniformed Capitol Police encouraging & welcoming some people into the Capitol, even as some black clad characters equipped with clubs started breaking windows. Blame the true troublemakers, not the innocent Americans!

A Texas man may have been inspired by foreign terrorists when he murdered his Lyft driver, then opened fire inside a local police station, authorities said. Imran Ali Rasheed, 33, was fatally shot by cops in the lobby of the Plano Police Department on Sunday, after he killed 26-year-old driver Isabella Lewis and stole her car, according to officials. Rasheed, who’d previously been investigated by the FBI, left a note in Lewis’ car that led investigators to believe he was a follower of the “rhetoric” and “propaganda” of an unnamed terrorist organization, said Matthew DeSarno, special agent in charge of the FBI Dallas office.

House Republicans urged Democrats on Tuesday to postpone consideration of President Biden’s $3.5 trillion expansion of America’s social safety net, arguing that Congress instead should address the nation’s mounting foreign and domestic woes. Rep. Bruce Westerman of Arkansas, the top Republican on the House Natural Resources Committee, said Democratic leaders were putting the spending package above the interests of the country. Mr. Westerman made the argument in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Raúl Grijalva of Arizona. “America is facing crises both at home and abroad, yet Congress is nowhere to be found,” Mr. Westerman wrote.

Billions of pounds of new road taxes are needed to plug the tax shortfall set to be created by the switch to electric cars, a new report warns today. The study, by the think-tank led by Tony Blair, argues that ‘road pricing’ is needed to replace the more than £30billion in revenue generated annually from motoring taxes. This would see drivers pay per mile or per minute for the amount of distance or time spent on the roads. The report, by the Tony Blair Institute For Global Change, urges ministers to reveal how they plan to replace current motoring taxes within a year, warning it may become ‘politically impossible’

President Joe Biden received praise from an unlikely source on Tuesday: Ann Coulter. Biden had just concluded his address to the nation on the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, ending a war that had lasted 20 years. The president has been criticized for failing to anticipate the rapid crumbling of Afghan security forces in the face of the Taliban’s advance. That caused a chaotic scene at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, where the U.S. military hurried to evacuate more than 123,000 Americans and Afghans despite being surrounded by the Taliban and ISIS-K.

If an intruder entered my home and threatened my wife and child, I would shoot until I was able to ensure the target was immobilized. As to the first statement, there are plenty of examples of police officers firing multiple shots at a suspected threat.
