Liz Cheney: January 6 Will Happen Every Four Years
Liz Cheney: January 6 Will Happen Every Four Years
January 6 will happen every four years according to Liz Cheney. That is, unless Congress acts “responsibly” and rids us of the cancer that caused the so-called insurrection and assault on the Capitol that day.
Before I delve into her remarks, let’s just get something out of the way here. This January 6th Commission is nothing but a political gambit by Nancy Pelosi and others. It’s a way to cater to the most partisan factions within the Democrat party as well as to all the Never Trumpers, which includes Liz Cheney. It’s all about messaging, but not the messaging that Americans want. Nope, it’s about the messaging that the leftist Democrats want.
The bottom line is that this hearing is not about investigating. It is about messaging. Democrats want to create a TV program that will push back on the contention by Trump and some of his supporters that the riot was a largely peaceful affair. In fact, the riot had long periods of intense, angry violence, and that will be the focus of the hearing. That, of course, will not be news.
Never mind the fact that there’ve already been 14 or so hearings about January 6, THIS is the political theatre that will change everything …or not.
So, let’s roll tape on Liz’s remarks.
Isn’t she just something?
The unbelievable violence and intolerable cruelty she speaks of is that of the fact that, TO THIS DAY, we don’t know who fired the shot that killed Ashli Babbit.
TO THIS DAY, those who are in jail have been deprived of their Constitutional right to DUE PROCESS, yet Liz condescendingly talks about how the Capitol Police (some of whom happily opened the doors to the idiots) defended our Constitution.
Liz talks about defending the rule of law. Great. Then quit depriving those in jail of their Constitutional rights!
Liz talks about how the violence on January 6 is so egregious that people must be punished. I’ve yet to see reports of statues torn down or priceless paintings defaced. Oh wait, someone put their feet up on the desk of one of Nancy’s aides. That’s destructive violence or something.
DO NOT get me wrong, I firmly believe those who went into the Capitol that day were stupid. Whatever point many of them were hoping to make, is now forever lost.
Liz and Co want people to be held accountable for their actions. What Liz and Co fail to realize is that many Americans are fed up with politicians who are refusing to listen to their constituents! And don’t get me started on the pundits.
Those who minimize the violence and malice of that day should listen to every syllable. https://t.co/L3q0odj8VO— David French (@DavidAFrench) July 27, 2021
According to Liz, this January 6 “violence” is far worse than the unhinged spectators who disrupted the Kavanaugh hearings, or did sit-ins at Nancy Pelosi’s office (hello AOC!). According to Liz, this “violence” is worse than any other attacks on the Capitol that ended up with actual explosions from bombs as well as multiple people being shot DEAD.
According to Liz, what happened on January 6 is much worse than the 18 months of violence we have seen in Democrat run cities since the George Floyd riots started.
Given the tenor and tone of Liz’s little speech, I highly doubt she is going to ask real questions. Why? Because she doesn’t care about the truth. Liz doesn’t care about what her constituents actually want and need. Nope, she’s all about this political theatre in order to gain points and recognition. At least she didn’t cry…

As was discussed in an earlier post, Adam Kinzinger is a putz, and so is Adam Schiff.

Here’s my biggest beef with Liz Cheney. This part of her statement.
We cannot leave the violence of January 6th — and its causes — uninvestigated. The American people deserve the full and open testimony of every person with knowledge of the planning and preparation for January 6th. We must know what happened here at the Capitol. We must also know what happened every minute of that day in the White House — every phone call, every conversation, every meeting leading up to, during, and after the attack. Honorable men and women have an obligation to step forward. If those responsible are not held accountable, and if Congress does not act responsibly, this will remain a cancer on our Constitutional Republic, undermining the peaceful transfer of power at the heart of our democratic system. We will face the threat of more violence in the months to come, and another January 6th every four years.
Liz, you just peddled a truckload of horseshit.
You know what is a cancer on this Republic? YOU.
Do you know why people are fed up with politicians of every stripe in this Republic? Look in the mirror.
Liz won’t ask the hard questions of the Capitol Police, because in her mind as well as that of the rest of the hacks on the January 6 clown circus commission, what the police did or didn’t do doesn’t matter. According to Liz, it is us who are the problem. Because we DARE to question their brilliance and we DARE to question why they are about political power, WE are the problem.
Telling Americans that if Congress doesn’t act, some type of January 6 will happen every four years, is creating MORE division.
Liz, you have forgotten that the U.S. Capitol is not your house. It is OUR house.
