Default The Fight for America

This nearly went in the Trump thread, but Trump is actually just one of the supporting players here so I think it calls for a new thread. Here's the splendid Heather Cox Richardson:

The House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol — latest report

From the linkThe committee report is a lot more interesting than that topline suggests (political historian here: although people tend to watch what happens before the TV cameras, committee reports are often where the action is).

The report starts by stating that the attempt of “a violent mob” to “halt the lawful counting of electoral votes and reverse the results of the 2020 election” was, according to “the words of many of those who participated in the violence, ...a direct response to false statements by then-President Donald J. Trump—beginning on election night 2020 and continuing through January 6, 2021—that the 2020 election had been stolen by corrupted voting machines, widespread fraud, and otherwise.”

The committee is laying the events of January 6 on Trump.

In my email today:

Friend,

Mark Zuckerberg, in my opinion, a criminal, is allowed to spend over $400 million and therefore able to change the course of a Presidential Election, and nothing happens to Facebook.

Comey lied.
Schiff lied.
Crooked Hillary lied.
McCabe lied.
The two lovers, Peter and Lisa, lied.

They all lied about everything having to do with Russia, Russia, Russia, because they knew it was a SCAM, and they all lied about everything having to do with Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine because they knew it was a SCAM.

They made up fairy tales about me knowing how badly it would hurt the U.S.A.—and nothing happens to them. Is there no justice in our Country?

The Left NEVER stops coming after me, Friend. I’m fighting back (and I’ll WIN), but I’m calling on YOU to stand with me.

Universal health care is a centrist position, Manchin, you are not centrist at all.

One has to wonder which religion Flynn is talking about. I'll bet a even few people on the stage got a bit squeamish on that rhetoric.

Ann Coulter needs no introduction here. I haven't read it all, because I haven't the stomach. Suffice to say, she's doing that conservative thing of nudging her audience's Overton window in the direction of outrageous by accusing the opposition of the outrages she wants to legitimise:

From the link...so that no one will dare stand in the way of the left’s shock troops ever again.

The Alt-Right really, really want Nazi jackboots on the streets as soon as possible.

The Alt-Right really, really want Nazi jackboots on the streets as soon as possible.

Quote:
Originally blogged by Heather Cox Richardson
[Miles Taylor] told DeVega that Republican congresspeople are worried they will be attacked if they cross Trump. “I'm talking about former Cabinet secretaries, sitting members of Congress and others who personally confessed to me, ‘I don't think I can join you in rising up against this guy because I've got to worry about my family's safety.’” Taylor said. “I didn't anticipate how much I was going to hear that as a response. They would say to me, “Look, I’ve got kids and this is too crazy right now.”

But if Trump is permitted to hand over control over the machinery of our elections to his loyalists, today’s “crazy” is going to look quaint.
