Liz Cheney is not a “pawn.”
She’s not being “used.”
She’s making a career move.
She knows she has no future in the GOP. Like Bill Kristol, she’ll be a lifelong “Republican” who bashes Republicans for the benefit of Democrats.
A well-paying occupation!
Context: The evening newscasts on CBS, NBC & ABC average anywhere from 18 to 20 million viewers combined on a typical night. Those newscasts do not air in primetime. The January 6 hearings airing in primetime Thursday took in just 11+ million viewers on those three same networks.
1/5) Flashback: In May 2020, mobs of fat-left rioters tried to storm the White House. They were repelled by police, who were assaulted and hit with projectiles. Democrats and leftists condemned law enforcement at the time for stopping the rioters. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1479245177248174081
2/5) Flashback May 2020: At night, the far-left rioters surrounded the White House and tried tearing apart the protective barrier so they could storm the building. Secret Service and law enforcement were injured by the violent extremists. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1479248522058813441
3/5) Flashback May 2020: The far-left rioters tore apart the barrier outside the White House piece by piece in an attempt to storm the building and burn it down. Many in the mob called for the president to be lynched. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1479249186587660290
4/5) Flashback May 2020: A secret service officer suffered a head injury after being assaulted by BLM & far-left rioters trying to storm the White House. Dozens of other Secret Service agents were injured as well.
5/5) Flashback May 2020: In addition to tearing apart the barriers outside the White House & assaulting Secret Service & law enforcement, the far-left rioters carried out an arson attack. They wanted to storm the building in an uprising against the President. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1479251912075755523.
How many people watched the #January6th hearing? Around 20 million, even though it played nonstop on just about every network and cable station. By contrast, many more people have seen “2000 Mules,” featured on no network—not even Fox. People want facts & truth, not propaganda! https://twitter.com/DineshDSouza/status/1535716807801184260
Oath Keepers brought weapons, left them in VA because illegal in DC. As for rest of rioters, this is from October, but as of then, five, out of 700+, had been charged with firearms possession. No rioters' guns fired.
SEAN DAVIS: “We are watching something akin to the dissolution of the republic,” said Federalist CEO Sean Davis of the Jan. 6 Committee’s show trial proceedings. “What they really want to do is criminalize the things that you do, that I do, that everyone watching does when they oppose Democrat policies.” https://thefederalist.com/videos/sean-davis-j6-committee-is-being-used-as-a-pretext-to-criminalize-opposition/
The day after a poll was released showing @Liz_Cheney getting destroyed by Trump-endorsed @HagemanforWY, the committee just happened to subpoena Stepien, who is running Harriet’s campaign. This circus is beyond an embarrassment and will forever stain the integrity of congress. https://twitter.com/TayFromCA/status/1536072398843174913
on case anyone isn't clear or confused about this edited video clip, CornPop and HeelsUpHarris were commenting on J6. the rest of the content injected are that of "the summer of love" 2020
1) There are some familiar parallels between the trajectory of this Jan 6 narrative and the Trump/Russia collusion hoax. Reckless (and calculated) accusations and conclusions of guilt followed by congressional committee investigations designed to selectively develop and ...release "evidence" that supports the Dem narrative. Unrelenting, uncritical and enthusiastic partisan support from every sector of the news media. Standards of "evidence" that amplify and endorse https://twitter.com/jabeale/status/1536529358541791232
2) unsubstantiated - but damning - accusations and statements by partisan committee members, again with uncritical, supportive treatment by the legacy media. No reporting of once-breaking-news allegations and accusations that have been abandoned or factually debunked - not a whisper - they're just dropped from coverage, replaced by a fresh round of hyperbole or a selective leak from a Dem committee member, reported as fact.
3) All of it seems very familiar. We've been through this before and we know how it ends. So do the Dems. But it's worth it to them - there was no consequence for a four-year, sustained Dem/media campaign to tarnish the legitimacy of the 2016 election; oppose, mischaracterize and belittle any and all Trump initiatives or successes; and engineer gaslit impeachment hearings with the same goal as the Jan 6 committee - for no reason other than to try to eliminate Trump
4) from contention in 2024, because they're afraid he'll beat them.
Interesting times - especially when history repeats itself seemingly every month.
And another thing - perhaps most maddening of all - the fact that the Dems and media are well aware of all above but choose to insult the intelligence of the entire country to appease themselves, their base and their collective mission not to beat Trump, but to take him out. /end/
The New York Times gently reminds its readers that the January 6 committee's hearing was a little...one-sided. Like the committee itself.
You’re either illiterate, stupid, or a shameless liar. Which one? https://twitter.com/julie_kelly2/status/1537048044830699525
1/2) Imagine watching a Stalin-era show trial and coming away convinced that the prosecutors have made a compelling case.
But it's not 1937, it's 2022, and you're not a barely literally citizen of the USSR but an American, likely with a college degree.
That's not stupid. That's evil.
Anyone who's ever stepped into a courtroom knows that if a tribunal doesn't afford due process to the accused - if it's not a true adversarial process - the accuser can "prove" absolutely anything.
2/2) That's what's happening in the #January6thHearings. A Stalinist travesty.
Under Stalinist justice, the accused also had appointed "defense" counsel
Looking at you, @replizcheney @repkinzinger
None of the points in this article will ever be addressed honestly by the media or Democrats, because they are not disputable. If this had been done to the Democrats, they would have burned the country to the ground.
J6 Committee Focuses On Election Fraud Claims While Ignoring Tactics Used To Rig The 2020 Election
by: Margot Cleveland
June 22, 2022
MARGOT CLEVELAND: A show-trial is one thing, blatantly lying to American public & maliciously defaming a lawyer is another. @FDRLST Shame on @RepLizCheney. @HouseGOP needs to demand full transcripts be released NOW.
1) OMgosh! I could NOT for life of me figure out why @replizcheney and Jan 6 Committee wanted to lie about Klukowski. It NOW makes sense: They HAD to lie to connect Clark proposal to Eastman. Read Washington Post's repeating of lies & re-read my piece. https://twitter.com/ProfMJCleveland/status/1541453225500577795
2) I am jaw-dropped now. Yes, I know they lie. Yes, I know they are evil. But this makes Machiavellian look like Gandhi.
@joelpollak is also covering the story, here. https://twitter.com/joelpollak/status/1541242839962714115 and he is right, this is huge! The J6 committee blatantly LIED about a cooperating witness to create non-existent connection b/w Clark and Eastman. And I confirmed lie w/ source who confirmed https://twitter.com/ProfMJCleveland/status/1541464003796402176
Our increasingly totalitarian government seems to have adopted the infamous mantra of Levrentiy Pavlovich Beria, the Chief of Josef Stalin’s Secret Police, the NKVD: “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.” Here's the latest on John Eastman via @TuckerCarlson
The corrupt J6 committee’s new SURPRISE WITNESS was so appalled by Trump and J6 that she…was planning to go work for Trump at his FL residence eight days *after* January 6 (article was published on January 14, 2021).
This Soviet show trial is a joke.
Third-Party Hearsay... The DNC's Clown Show Witch-Hunt devolves 👇🏽
Cassidy Hutchinson testifies that she was told that as then-President Donald Trump was being driven back to the White House after the Jan. 6 rally that he demanded to be taken to the Capitol and tried to grab the steering wheel from a Secret Service agent.
Anyone that has ever worked with Eric Herschmann knows that the handwriting on that note is his. Cassidy lied through her teeth and Liz Cheney knew she was lying.
Trump White House attorney disputes Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony about handwritten note
Why wasn’t he the attorney that had those “negative thoughts” of Flynn, Powell and Byrne when they “arrived” at the White House on the night of December 18, 2020 for that Swedish meatball fiesta?
And now in June, 2022 his continued loyalties to Trump are becoming more apparent?
Thanks for making me smile broadly. 😊
