  1. Loud mouth trump, egging these fools to march to capitol, and storm capitol, but when all hell breaks loose he is silent for hours. Even his kids begged him to make a statement to his thugs, but he remained silent. So yes trump is part blame in this mayhem. The ignorant trumpers made false claims that all this chaos was done by blm, and antifa. That didnt work, or hold water, and obvious bs , so now they claim it was the FBI. LOL😁

  2. There was a time when Republicans knew the truth of what happened on Jan. 6th. They knew who was responsible. They weren't so afraid to say so then. Here are some of their statements below:

    SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL (R-KY), SENATE MINORITY LEADER: "The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people. They tried to disrupt our democracy. They failed. Former President Trump's actions preceded the riot were a disgraceful, disgraceful dereliction of duty. There is no question. None. That President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day."

    REP. KEVIN MCCARTHY (R-CA), HOUSE MINORITY LEADER: "The violence, destruction, and chaos we saw earlier was unacceptable, undemocratic and un-American. The president bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.

    SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC): Trump and I, we've had a hell of a journey. I hate it being this way. My God, I hate it. From my point of view, he's been a consequential brother. But today the first thing you'll see. All I can say is count me out. Enough is enough."

    SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TX): "The president's language and rhetoric crossed a line and it was reckless."

    SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY): "Chaos, anarchy, the violence today was wrong and un-American.

    REP. STEVE SCALISE (R-LA): "Once you start taking violent actions against law enforcement, you're not a protester anymore. You're an anarchist. You know, whether it is anarchy or terrorism. They were trying to storm the capitol and stop our democracy from working."

    UNKNOWN: "This has been a truly tragic day for America. And we all join together in fully condemning the dangerous violence and destruction."

  3. MOST Americans want to know the truth and will act accordingly come the elections. It’s hard to imagine a more significant and more serious dereliction of duty than a US President who took an oath to uphold the Constitution. Now the 1/6 committee has firsthand testimony and unfolding evidence that Trump stood by and did nothing while sitting in the dining room next to the Oval Office, watching the attack on television of the assault on the Capitol. He watched rioters literally breaking into the Capitol, the worst attack on our Capitol since the war of 1812. Even his daughter went to him twice asking him to do something to stop it, and of course including all the text messages that surfaced from others and his son asking him to do something. It's a pretty scary threat to our American institution of democracy when you take into account:

    defying the election

    efforts to stop the vote counts in different states

    efforts to make Pence refuse to certify the election

  4. Biden will stay in office because you will never see Trump do this list below. Actions speak louder than words and our President has the courage to get things done by turning all of Trump's wrongs into historic wins:

    1) Historic – the Pres. Bill making 6/teenth a Federal Holiday and National Independence Day The House overwhelmingly passed this bill commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. At the Tusla Speech this year, Biden Marks 100 Years Since the Tulsa Race Massacre and spoke : “This Was not a Riot, It was a Massacre. I’ve Come Here to Help Fill the Silence. We’re Here to Shine a Light, to Make sure American Knows the Story in Full.”… “I’m The First President in 100 Years to Come to Acknowledge the Truth of What took Place in Tulsa. We’re Facing an Infection Point as a Nation; What People Refused to See Can’t be Ignored Anymore.”; “This is a day of profound weight and profound power, a day in which we remember the moral stain, the terrible toll that slavery took on the country and continues to take” .. “I hope this is the beginning of a change in the way we deal with one another,”

    2) Pres. Historic Approach to Protect Voting Rights John Lewis Voting Rights Act (H.R. 4) and For the People Act (S. 1) : Biden says: “There is an unfolding assault taking place in America today — an attempt to suppress and subvert the right to vote in fair and free elections, an assault on democracy, an assault on liberty.” H.R. 1 was "a landmark piece of legislation that is urgently needed to protect the right to vote, the integrity of our elections, and to repair and strengthen our democracy."

    3) New version of the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. will restore federal pre-clearance requirements for changes in voting rules, and would make it easier to challenge voter suppression laws as discriminatory, both in response to the Supreme Court’s gutting of the Voting Rights Act, in 2013 and earlier this year.

    4) Border – Historically VPres visits these Countries to Assist why People have been Fleeing for Years to US She states: “We will build on what works, and we will pivot away from what does not work,” she wrote. “It will not be easy, and progress will not be instantaneous, but we are committed to getting it right.” U.S. Supreme Court now temporarily blocks TX and M0 for reinstatement of former Pres-era immigration policy where he also put in place the inhumane Zero-Tolerance policy to prosecute and criminally charge everyone who crosses the border without inspection.

    5) Historically VPres releases the Strategy getting to the Root Causes of Migration It comes as roughly 50,000 illegal immigrants who arrived in the US between mid-March and mid-July were released without court dates. Pillar I : Addressing economic insecurity and inequality; Pillar II : Combating corruption, strengthening democratic governance, and advancing the rule of law; Pillar III : Promoting respect for human rights, labor rights, and a free press; Pillar IV : Countering and preventing violence, extortion, and other crimes perpetrated by criminal gangs, trafficking networks, and other organized criminal organizations; Pillar V: Combating sexual, gender-based, and domestic violence.

    Also Pres supports the 10M undocumented

    – Immigrants struggle with access to Excluded Workers Fund application* A statement : “The Pres and Congress have a crucial opportunity to deliver justice for millions of Dreamers and TPS recipients and essential workers, and we will be doing everything we can to ensure that this path to citizenship becomes a reality.”

    6) Historically Pres & Admin defeating Cov. by removing the shortages on vaccines as he entered office, and replenished the needs for healthcare needs, hospitals, and educational supports.

    7) Historic the Pres. American Rescue Plan Act addressed the economic impacts from Cov. on families, jobs, homes, businesses and schools. Also included funding for education, state, local, tribal governments, testing, vaccination support, and research.

    8) Historic the Pres. Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act for our Roads, bridges and other major projects. Passenger and freight Rail. Safety funds for highways and pedestrians. Public Transit. Internet and Broadband. Ports and Waterways. Airports. Drinking Water and Wastewater. Power and Grid. Resiliency for cybersecurity. Low-Carbon and Zero-Emission School Buses and Ferries. Production and Procurement of Electric Vehicles, School Busses and Ferries. Flood Mitigation. BRIC for Pre-disaster Building. Drought. Ecosystems. Wildfire Management. Disaster relief, national flood insurance, FEMA, STORM Act.

    9) Historic – the Pres. American Families Plan This next bill focuses less on physical infrastructure and more on “human infrastructure,” meaning projects that invest in people rather than physical things. Transformational investments from early childhood to postsecondary education so that all children and young people are able to grow, learn, and gain the skills they need to succeed. It will provide universal, high quality preschool to all three- and four- year-olds. Also will make the Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit permanent, providing up to $4,000 to cover expenses related to care for a child under age 13 or dependent with a disability needing care and up to $8,000 to cover expenses for multiple children or dependents.

    10) Historically He ends years of War with support of the Majority of Americans who wanted our Troops Home : He also uses every available resource to get not only US Citizens out of Afghanistan, but Afghan allies out as well – which is the biggest Airlifts in World History – saving and airlifting more people than any other President in History.

    He ended it after $2 trillion+ was spent in Afghan., estimating $300 million+ a day for 20 years. 800,000 Americans served in Afghan., 20,744 American service men and women injured, and the loss of 2,461 American personnel, including 13 lives lost recently – and the Pres refuses to open up another decade there.

    He lost his own son who served in Iraq for a year ; A lot of our veterans and families have gone through enough with deployment after deployment, months and years away from their families, missed birthdays, anniversaries, empty chairs at holidays, financial struggles, divorces, loss of limbs, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress, and 18 veterans on average die by suicide every single day.

    and so much more to his agenda

  5. News Flash Democrat Cheney oh really a Republican? If people were prosecuted for illegal vote counting this would change…. The Rule of Law was Violated in the illegal change in vote counts Illegal voter rules passed by non legislative measures illegally ….and counting votes illegally after hours in States where Trump dramatically was winning suddenly loses days after the polls closed 100% Biden votes? Really? Not likely at all . This was the attack on our Democracy, not a Riot in the Capital

  6. So Liz, it’s awfully what happened, but does these actions by dumba$$es for the definition of an “ insurrection”? Armed individuals ? Hostages taken? Demands made? Did any figure head show up and declare , “ I have ultimate power “ 🤥🤥🤥🤥🤥🤥 truth? How about a “ mostly peaceful riot” ( liberal definition) that went tragically wrong . Sorry Lizzy your definition is skewed 🤢🤮🤑🤑🤑

  7. So it's okay for Biden to give weapons to terrorist knowing they will be used to kill thousand of our countrymen and allies and for Harris to allow our southern borders to be invaded knowing that many of the people crossing the border will be responsible taking the lives of American citizens and you want blame Trump for the chaos on January 6th. You think that if you should your nonsense loud enough and long enough people will believe it. You are disgraceful and you should all step down because you are killing this country and we may not survive you.

  8. Biden gave billions of $$$$ worth of cutting edge weapons to terrorist, Harris let over 2,000,000 illegals into our country and shows no aptitude to be vice president and you want to talk about 01/06/2021. Name anything these two have improved since they took office, nothing is the answer and if they remain in office I fear for our country. Biden/Harris will be remembered as the worst president/vice president package in history. Please God save our country from disgraceful people.

  11. All Liz Cheney does is sell her vote to the highest bidder!! We have been trying to get rid of her for years in Wyoming but because of her father we can't!! She's the worst!!

  12. Joe is lost Obama 2.0 look at the Stock Market which guides the Economy Up then Down – no gain, no gain in the Economy – 1000's of flights delayed each day, 100's of Ships off shore still today drastically impacting supplies in the Country thus Inflation, 11 Million open jobs (No need for BBB just lift mandates and stop sending out checks – people will get back to work) and due to mandates no one is filling the jobs or they are leaving and quitting their jobs. Remember little Joe's election promise "I will fix Covid" he beat Trump up over and over on media about how bad Trump was reacting to Covid – SHEEP – more people have gotten Covid, more people have died during the Biden Presidency, Biden's track record is much worse, so SHEEP, stand up and say something, he has totally crashed the Economy, caused directly Fuel and Energy cost to skyrocket, caused the spread of Covid around the nation by allowing Illegal Immigrants to flow into the US unchecked and no vaccination required for them, but you the US Citizen, better get 2 – 3 shots, carry your papers, ware your mask, stop the madness, VOTE 2022 this year and "SWEEP" the House and Senate, then 2024 and Trump comes back…wins for the 3rd time….Biden is asleep on the job and he is under the thumb of the Teachers Union (CRT to be taught to your children) and UAW…Unions and AOC / Squad (You Owe Me – Cancel US Culture) control his direction which is into Socialist Agendas, what President has had a fake room where he addresses the Union, holds meetings – only Biden, what is he hiding.

  13. Is Congress investigating the agents who were their egging rioters to go in the US Capitol Building? Of course not – they are part of the plan from the left. Nothing will be done about them. The left set people up and egged it on and the person who had the authority to call in the National Guard did not do it ON PURPOSE. Who planted the pipe bombs? Nothing is being said or done about "their" set-up of things nor will it be. They have fake meetings on fake things all day long about others but they never make mistakes or do anything in error because they are liars who stop at nothing to get power for themselves. The truth doesn't change even when hidden.

  14. This news organization is fake as it gets. Operation Mockingbird is succeeding. And this neo-con Liz is cut from the same cloth as her war criminal father. He was responsible for death of thousands of Americans both in NYC and in Iraq, Afghanistan.

  15. Chaney is completely freakin’ CLUELESS . Per Chaney “Trump should have gone on TV to tell the people at the Capitol to stop”. Yep, because there all went to the Capitol on Jan 6th with their TV’s in their pockets instead of their cell phones. Which is exactly why Trump sent out a Tweet instead, knowing it would reach these people faster. Chaney’s true intelligence is showing.🤦‍♀️

  16. I am very upset that Fat Bully Trump is still roaming free. He ought to be in jail already. Justice is too slow in the US, but it is coming for this individual. Apparently, it really is. Thank you, Senator Cheney and members of the J6 Committee.
