With the public hearings starting on the 9th, i figured we needed a thread on it.

 

Trump on Trial

 

The Brookings Institution has released a comprehensive guide to this week’s hearings by the January 6 Committee.

“The issue of criminality is central to the congressional hearings commencing on June 9, 2022… The report covers key players in the attempt to overturn the election, the known facts regarding their conduct, and the criminal law applicable to their actions.”

Biden isn't the head of a cult that attempted to overturn a democratically-held election to keep their power structure and bruised egos intact.

Someone help me understand this:   For the past 2+ years, Republicans have been pounding the table and screaming at the top of their lungs about a stolen election, election fraud, fake/fraud

Voters definitely don't care, but that doesn't mean what happened was no big deal.

Proud Boys Leaders Charged with ‘Seditious Conspiracy’

June 6, 2022 at 3:40 pm EDT By Taegan Goddard 128 Comments

“Henry ‘Enrique’ Tarrio, longtime chairman of the extremist group Proud Boys, was indicted on a new federal charge of seditious conspiracy with four top lieutenants on Monday,” the Washington Post reports.

“The charges expand the Justice Department’s allegations of an organized plot to unleash political violence to prevent the confirmation of President Biden’s election victory on Jan. 6, 2021, when a pro-Trump mob attacked the U.S. Capitol.”

I can't find it now.....but I recently saw a news article about GOP lawmakers becoming somewhat divided on their approach to the upcoming hearings:

 

As we know, most of the GOP has spent the past year blasting the committee and investigation as a politically-motivated partisan witch hunt against Trump and the GOP in general.

 

But a number of members have recently starting taking a more muted approach:   their constituency and voter base has now shifted their ire to subjects like inflation, gas prices, Biden, and various other talking points....voters are no longer talking about or even paying attention to the Jan 6th investigation or the upcoming hearings.    Rather than bringing the Jan 6 investigation back to the forefront of public  consciousness,  some Republican officials are now advising that the GOP downplay it or avoid the discussion entirely.    Conservative voters have already tuned out on the subject....their leadership is  perfectly content to let sleeping dogs lie.

Fans tell 20yr old players to shut up and play football all the time, regardless of the issue at hand. Del Rio is in DC and has no business playing the false equivalency game on social media within a few miles of where this happened.  He needs to shut up and coach football.

More repub-on-repub hate coming to Brett Baier as Fox will continue to offer alternate reality and allay the cognitive dissonance of their viewers during the hearings

 

Fox News Channel has announced that it will not provide continuous live coverage on Thursday evening of the first hearing of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

 

In an announcement on Monday, Fox News Media said hosts on the air as the proceedings are taking place will “cover the hearings as news warrants,” before anchor and chief legal correspondent Shannon Bream will anchor a two-hour live special focusing on the hearings starting at 11 p.m.

 

The conservative media giant will instead show live continuous coverage of the hearings on Fox Business, with anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum hosting. It will also provide coverage via Fox News Digital, Fox News Audio and Fox Nation.

 

The announcement signals Fox will not preempt its regularly scheduled opinion shows, featuring controversial hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham, all three of whom draw in millions of viewers a night.

Coming up next:  Fox News announces that in lieu of showing the televised proceedings, they will be playing a continuous 6-hour video loop of Shaggy’s classic hit  It Wasn’t Me

After overpromising “bigger than Watergate!” forever, Fox is going to sit out on watergate style public hearings into a coup attempt fashioned by a loser president and his henchmen. They can play the ostrich game, but that’s exactly how this history will be taught 20 years from now.

 

I used to marvel at those newsreels showing denials by the populace who had gone to war and entrenched themselves in transparent, pretzel-like propaganda, and we’re watching it now real-time with Russia. I never thought the USA would go through something like this kind of outright denial by a huge % of Americans, concerning an event at the core of our constitution. ‘I could execute a coup on fifth avenue and not lose any voters’. Cuz Demz b Evilz.

What poll has  Jan 6th in its top 10 issues?  Every knowledgeable person knows that committee is a joke. 

 

Appeal to the People:

Someone attempts to justify a claim on the basis of popularity.

Example: Opponents of year-round school claim that students would hate it.

logical fallacies don't deserve them since it's irrelevant.
