WASHINGTON — Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is criticizing the Republican National Committee for censuring two House GOP lawmakers investigating the “violent insurrection” on Jan. 6, 2021, saying it’s not the party’s job to police the views of lawmakers. As former President Donald Trump has downplayed the attack by his supporters last year — the worst attack against the Capitol in two centuries — the RNC last week took a voice vote to approve censuring Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois at the party’s winter meeting in Salt Lake City.


Anyone paying attention knows the “riot” was an inside job to prevent evidence of the massive fraud from being presented. Mitch should go live in China with his wife!

Wow, when you have a giant lie in your second sentence ("the worst attack against the Capitol in two centuries"), there is no use in trying to read the rest of what is obviously a partisan "hit piece" by another lie-beral editorialist!!!!!

March 1 1954 4 Puert Ricans shot up the Capital....shot off about 30 rounds or so. I would say that might be a little worse than Jan 6 when a nut dressed up like a whatever paraded around. Only person that might see it differently is dead. She was killed by a Congressional Mall Cop.

Go home Mitch, just go home. You are a drooling fool worse than Xiden. Hit the liquor store and stock up on Russian vodka, Budweiser, and a case or two of wine. Then get a hotel room for two weeks and drink it all by yourself.

Jan 6th was the worst thing that happened to the American citizens. I don’t think an election has ever been stolen in the open before. It was the worst day for unarmed Ashlee Babbitt. I don’t want to hear any of your whining, Mitch. You did nothing to protect the integrity of the election. What is wrong with you?

Meet the new Mitch, same as the old Mitch. Bringing manufacturing back to the USA would harm his wife's Chinese shipping interests, and probably corporate profits too (these matter far more than the well-being of the American workers), so in light of these facts, the agency's Reichstag fire is perfectly fine as long as it's blamed on citizens who objected to the rigged election.

Mitch has to keep his RINOs happy. Mitch is in a rare situation where he is defacto Majority leader without being the majority leader. If he loses one RINO, its Dem's Nirvana. DA Kumalot gets to break ties. I don't care for Mitch and hope enough Rebublicans get elected in Nov to get rid of Miitch. But for now, he has a chance to kill Biden and Piglosi's communist push. But he has to keep RINOs happy. It must suck to be Mitch McConnell.

Our God is causing this open and full exposure of America’s enemies. McConnell is all the way out of the closet now. He and his leadership team are every bit as treacherous, greedy and utterly lacking in concern for the American people as JB, Obama and the Democrats. If Senate Republicans stay silent and accept this this evil man’s leadership, they are no better than he is!

What is this 'breach the Capitol" they keep talking about. I remember seeing on TV these idiots climbing the exterior wall while other were walking calmly up the steps to the Capitol on either side of the wall. I also remember seeing the Mall cops holding the door for people coming into the building. I also remember seeing people walking through a roped off path looking at everything in the Capitol. No Riot! No Riot! No Riot. A riot is when statues are broken, paintings ripped down, buildings burned. (See Antifa and BLM - Portland for example)

The court document was filed in federal court in Los Angeles as part of the U.S. House of Representative Select Committee's dispute with John Eastman, a lawyer who advised Trump on a plan to invalidate election results in key battleground states. Eastmann is behind the notorious 'coup memo,' which argued that former Vice President Mike Pence had unilateral power to overturn Trump's loss to Joe Biden.

In recent years, a number of parents and grandparents have discovered an alarming trend: children no longer know how to write in cursive. Such a discovery led to a considerable backlash against programs such as Common Core, which many viewed as the culprit squeezing out cursive instruction. Thanks to increased attention on the subject, many states have implemented laws mandating that cursive be taught in school. But what happens when children begin to learn cursive and can’t hold their pencil properly? Amazingly, this is the growing reality in a number of countries. The Guardian explains:

Yet on March 1, the legislation was shot down in a 221–202 vote, almost entirely along partisan lines. “Getting our pipelines expanded is huge,” Rep.
