Good Monday morning.
Two minutes of hate:
Squeaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has retaliated against Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy by appointing fake Republican and wanna-be cool kid Rep. Adam Kinzinger to the Democrats’ J6 witch hunt commission. This kerfuffle started when Pelosi rejected two (Reps. Jordan and Banks) of the GOP’s choices to sit on the commission. McCarthy responded by pulling all the GOPers out of the witch hunt. But not Liz Cheney, of course, she will still participate as her and her clan desperately cling to power and relevance in the US political machine.
Now Kinzinger, another hateful “GOPer” will be added. Pelosi appeared on a Sunday political snuff show and belched:
“I believe the work of this committee, in order to retain the confidence of the American people, must act in a way that has no partisanship, is all about patriotism and I’m very proud of the members of the committee and I’m certain they will accomplish that goal,” Pelosi replied. “We have to, again, ignore the antics of those who do not want to find the truth. We will find the truth. That truth will have the confidence of the American people because it will be done patriotically and not in a partisan way.”
Lady, there’s no confidence from the American people about your commission, it’s a partisan distraction from the Biden Administration’s incompetence and your incompetence. This is so clearly a partisan operation, the only people who care are the lunatics who are invested in furthering the WORST THING EVER SINCE __________ narrative to expand their government-based power to beat down their political opponents.
Kinzinger said in a statement: “I will work diligently to ensure we get to the truth and hold those responsible for the attack fully accountable.” I’m pretty sure Kinzinger is re-districted out of office for 2022 so he can do and say whatever he wants without having to answer to anyone.
“It’s clear that Pelosi only wants members on this committee who will stick to her talking points and stick to her narrative,” [Rep. Jim] Banks said on “Fox News Sunday.” “That’s why she’s picked the group that she’s already picked, and anyone that she asked to be on this committee from this point moving forward will be stuck to her, her narrative, to her point of view.”
Some Republicans want McCarthy to punish sad sacks Cheney and Kinzinger for participating and I am fine with that. Kick them off their committees.
While the loudest cries have come from members of the hard-right Freedom Caucus, sources say that the sentiment has started to spread beyond the hard-line crew.
“There’s a lot,” said one GOP member about the push to have the pair removed from their other committees. “Supporting Pelosi’s unprecedented move to reject McCarthy’s picks was a bridge too far.”
CNN wants you to know, “But kicking them off their committees would be easier said than done. While McCarthy could remove Cheney and Kinzinger from their other committees, Pelosi ultimately controls committee membership. She could theoretically just re-appoint them to their current posts.”
GREAT. Make her do that, please, make her do that. The GOP needs to call her bluff and write down everything she is doing and when the GOP takes the House do the same. Kick Democrats off their committees the way the Democrats kicked MTG off hers. Let’s get rid of Schiff, Swalwell, Nadler and whatever committee those idiots on the squad are sitting on. Let’s stop pretending any of the things Pelosi and the Democrats are doing are legitimate. Time to nut up.
