Yesterday we touched on the J6 Investigation committee run by Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. It’s bad enough that Americans are being held against their will in, what we have come to find out, sub-standard detention. They have been mistreated, denied care, as well as denied several of their Constitutional rights. (Surprise! You can’t just hold American citizens in jail indefinitely without charging them.) Make no mistake, these are political prisoners in modern day America.
All because the Democrats have a rabid hatred for all things Trump. However, investigating the folks who “broke into the Capitol” on January 6, 2021 isn’t enough for Representative Bennie Thompson (D-MS). He wants to take it a freaky step further and give the definitely-not-corrupt-you-can-totally-trust-us-we-swear government more power to crap all over our Fourth Amendment. What’s that you say? More access to spy on American citizens who have- to this point- committed no crimes? Yep, you read that right. I’m sure it’s not going to be used as a political weapon at all, though.
According to Rep. Thompson, the increased access to surveilling citizens is “necessary to ensure the security of the U.S. government.” Hilarious when you consider that our government is supposed to be run By the People, For the People, yet holds almost no transparency with anything they do at all. (Is there any member of Congress or the Senate who would like to enlighten the American people about the secret slush fund for paying off sexual assault victims abused by members of both institutions?)
While it may seem noble that Rep. Thompson wishes to ensure that an “attack on the Capitol” never happens again, we can’t help but wonder where all this bravado was when rioters and anarchists were burning buildings in D.C. over the summer in 2020?
Where was this concern when Justice Brett Kavanaugh was having his SCOTUS hearing and a band of raging feminists burst into the room, shrieking and screaming about #MeToo while a Dana Carvey lookalike pretended she had been attacked a hundred years ago at a party no one remembered her even being at? The message is clear: It’s only concerning when the “wrong side” is involved.
In a moment of glaring contradiction, Rep. Thompson is quoted as saying, “As you know, it was clear that we were not apprised that something would happen. But, for the most part, it was the worst kept secret in America that people were coming to Washington, and the potential for coordination and what we saw was there.”
Which is it, Bennie? The Hill didn’t know this was going to happen? Or they did? Because let’s not forget that the heads of security and D.C. police had gone to Nancy Pelosi to request more bodies to protect the Capitol with, suggesting they certainly thought something might or could happen. And because Nancy is the head of security, meaning her orders are final, someone had to give the police the “stand down” order. It didn’t just come out of the ether folks, that’s not how it works. Hell, even the Left leaning New York Post wrote this headline:
Ignoring all that, Rep. Thompson- who also happens to be chair of the House Jan 6 committee- stated that the panel will “recommend new legislation to boost intelligence gathering to prevent future attacks on the U.S. Capitol.” Again, I’m sure the three-letter agencies are totally not weaponized against American citizens and nothing will go wrong with this…right? I mean, if the FBI can find the time in their busy schedules to pause the unnecessary investigation of parents speaking out against school boards for pushing CRT, masks, and other garbage, that is. You know, the same FBI that Merrick Garland sic’d on average every day Mama Bears because elected school board members were whining? Yeah, probably nothing to see there.
Of course, the DHS doesn’t really have that kind of authority. It’s, well, frankly unconstitutional. But that doesn’t stop Democrats. They openly hate the Constitution and every single thing it stands for. So, not to be outdone, Selected Commander in Chief, Joe “Corn Pop” Biden is pulling a dirty move straight out of the pages of President Barrack Obama. He isn’t satisfied with just using DHS to spy on citizens. Too much red tape, not enough loopholes. Especially after the FBI FISA court abuses during the Trump administration. Instead, Biden might use private firms to spy on citizens. You know, because there is less restrictions in what they can/can’t do and how they can come by the info. No wonder Brandon likes China so much. Maybe Xi Jinping gave him the idea?
The swampiness of the Swamp is so overwhelmingly gross, there really isn’t much left to admire about it. Sure there are some great folks doing their best to pull America out of the mire, but the mire is thick and full of self-congratulating cronies who happily take lobbyist monies while simultaneously sinking this great nation further. All of it at the expense of the American taxpayer. None of this foolishness is being proposed by Republicans, so tell me again how Democrats are “the party of the little guy”? Which little guy? If Democrats aren’t hell-bent on destroying this country and tearing apart our Constitution, I’m not sure what their end goal is.
Imagine if they pull this off. It would be the Patriot Act on steroids.
Stay deplorable, patriots!
