Wow, has there ever been a greater group of cowards than the Republican senators? Some are disputing the insurrection ever happened and most are expected to vote against the resolution for an investigating commission of the Jan 6 coup attempt. This is like a criminal telling the police there will be no investigation. Who are they protecting?
Dammit, the country deserves to know.
Funny thing, none of those cowards who marched on Congress turned against their leader who promised to march with them and then cowered in the WH like the cowards most despots wannabes are.
1. Federal level Republicans are collectively and individually spineless, collaborator, boot-licking sycophant cowards.
2. Out of the tens of thousands of attendees of Trumps Jan 6th rally, how many of them do you think could field at least one high-powered rifle? That if Trump had said "We're going to storm the Capitol on Jan 6th" that Nancy Pelosi wouldn't have looked like the Blues Brothers at the end of the movie?
Seriously, there are more Americans in the fields of Pennsylvania on the starting morning of deer season then there are in the entire US military. And each of them carry a high-powered rifle and can put a bullet into a dinner-plate at 250 yards. And they have enough fieldcraft you won't see them by eye if they ditch the hunters vests. It would literally be Yamamoto's prophesy come true, "A rifle behind every blade of grass."
Was it a riot caused by a few bad actors? You bet. We just found out that the Capitol police let people in because they asked politely. The bad actors then quietly slipped in with the regular folk to start their coordinated mayhem.
All that razor wire, barriers, fences, even the QRF on standby are not in response to Jan 6th. Neither are the heavy-handed FBI tactics investigating intimidating everyone whose faces showed up on a camera or had their cellphone ping a nearby tower that day. All that is because Biden and the rest of his cohorts are terrified Trump really does call for an insurrection. That would make Bastille Day look like a Ladies' Tea Cotillion.
