It's insurrection day!

It's finally here! This is what the democrats have been promoting - it's the one year anniversary of what they call "the insurrection." All their political hopes for the future rest on politicizing a single protest. It needs to be memorialized. Maybe they'll bulldoze the Washington Monument and erect a memorial to the cop who shot Ashli Babbitt?
We all know about the Jan 6th partisan committee. That's the one Nancy Pelosi created, defying all norms, to staff it with Trump hating tools. The committee has subpoenaed just about everyone in the Trump administration and his children! The committee has also presented some non-facts as well as withheld some real facts:
"The leading Republican tasked with his party’s investigation into the preparedness and response of the U.S. Capitol Police and other law enforcement agencies to the Capitol riot on January 6 is being blocked by President Joseph Biden’s FBI from gathering information, a new document reveals.
The FBI told Indiana Republican Rep. Jim Banks it would not provide Republicans the same information provided to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hand-picked committee consisting only of Democrat-appointed members.
“We respectfully refer you to the Select Committee regarding issues of access to records and information,” the agency wrote in response to a Republican request for information, referring to the official House panel established by the speaker.
Pelosi took what she admitted was an “unprecedented” step of refusing the appointments made by Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, barring Navy officer and Afghanistan veteran Banks and Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, from participation. In a fiery denunciation of Pelosi’s politicization of the committee, McCarthy, R-Calif., publicly announced Banks would lead Republicans’ investigation despite Pelosi blowing up the committee.
On September 3, Banks asked FBI Director Christopher Wray to give Republican lawmakers the same briefing offered to the Democrats on the progress of the agency’s own investigation. Partial findings of the FBI’s independent investigation were leaked to Reuters in August, which found “scant evidence” the Capitol riot was “an organized plot to overturn the president election result.” Wray has not responded to the request.
“Pursuant to the rules of the House of Representatives, the minority party in Congress retains the rights to the same information that is provided to the majority party,” Banks wrote in another letter to Wray on Sept. 16, which was also sent to several other federal agencies such as the Interior Department. “I ask that you provide me any information that is submitted to the Select Committee.” His requests have been met with radio silence across the Biden administration.
Prominent anti-Trump activists Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill, are both Democrat-appointed members of Pelosi’s Select Committee. Because House rules dictate that ranking members must be appointed by the minority party, Democrat-appointed Cheney serves only as vice-chair. In the case of the House Committee on Jan. 6., Pelosi blocked minority party participation for the first time in House history to pursue a preferred political narrative."
Today we will hear from the president as we did from his currently beleaguered AG. You see democrats want Garland to do more. Donald Trump may run again and right now just about anyone could beat Joe Biden. He better come up with something!
"For months, Garland has faced criticism that the Justice Department has so far only prosecuted the proverbial low-hanging fruit — the members of the violent mob that stormed the Capitol on January 6 — without going after former President Donald Trump and his inner circle.
On the eve of the first anniversary of January 6, Garland met that frustration head-on, legal experts said. Without naming Trump, Garland urged patience and said the Justice Department "remains committed to holding all January 6th perpetrators, at any level, accountable under law — whether they were present that day or were otherwise criminally responsible for the assault on our democracy."
"We will follow the facts wherever they lead," Garland said.
I can't wait to hear what the president says. Two days ago he told us that 2020 should be a better year.
Enjoy our new holiday
