    Even if you have a brain perfectly molded to whatever the ad wizards are applying to the production, if you have the level of discernment of the average USAian...you should be able to take a couple pieces of undeniable evidence to see what happened in front of our fucking eyes

    It ain't as fucking complicated as y'all are Alex Jonesing it up to be. It was the failed of coup of a fascist party, regardless of whether you think it was Trump himself, his cronies, some other party...it does not matter. Mark Meadows needs to be tried for treason and a bunch of people around need to go down too.

    But it probably will not happen. We will be just chillin in Gilead. Praise fuckin be
    What is the purpose of your presence?

    Phil, go back and read my opening line in the OP for the simple answer to that question. There's a reason I started out with that, hoping it wouldn't be missed.

    Needless insult, added to the original insult of you assuming I'm posting about something I'm completely oblivious of.



    she's so enamored with finally seeing the head of Captain Chaos being served up on a platter, she doesn't care to hear any questioning of those doing the serving up. The questioning comes across as offensive.

    You misread what I said, please reread. My wife (same as you), finds my questioning of the investigators, offensive.



    they're playing fast and loose with a lot as well.

What do you see as "fast and loose"....and what argument do you have for "the other side" that you find so compelling???
    I'm talking mainly about the way the committee tends to spin testimony to fit their narrative. Any details that don't fit the narrative, are simply ignored, they do not exist.

    Care to copy/paste anything I've said in this thread that demonstrates I find any stories from the other side, "compelling"? I'm calling you on that one!

    Those two guys came across to me as small town simpletons who got in way over their heads, their testimony seemed canned like they were saying whatever necessary to get off more lightly, and if they were indicative of the skill level of the plotters (which I believe they are), the rioters were nothing more than the gang that couldn't shoot straight. Doesn't excuse the actions, but the US continuity of government was never in peril with the likes of them wandering the Capitol building...

    Now that's just another cheap insult.

    I'm done playing your hair on fire game of 20 questions here Phil. You're coming at me with balled up fists which results in either you misreading me, or insulting me at just about every corner, only because I share a view of this that's different than yours.

    I've thoughtfully addressed everything you've hurled at me, and you're just brushing that off in lieu of more fresh rounds of, whatever you call this. I'll call it "berate anyone who dares disagree with the sacred cow which is the January 6 Committee".



    If you'd like to thoughtfully and respectfully flesh this thing out I'm still more than happy to, but if you're just bound and determined to keep bludgeoning me over the head until I see things your way, then I'm out.

    BTW, this is exactly how people of the alt right handle disagreements, there's no discussing matters, it goes straight to insults.

    Yes, Rad made that opinion very clear yesterday:

    And I concur in spades with that opinion, save for sectioning off an all important caveat to that axiom. There's run of the mill politics for the masses which I'm pointing out here, along the lines of political ads where the spin masters implore you to rush out hair on fire to send Senator Muckinfuch a clear message of disapproval; and then there's Realpolitik.

    I know I'm not telling either of you something that you don't already know, but this is an opportune moment to make the distinction between the two crystal clear before this thread continues on. January 6 was a problem, a problem that should rightfully be addressed, but what this committee is doing is playing politics with the issue to suit varying agendas. Business as usual for virtually all political parties playing for the home crowd.

    Realpolitik, depending on how the "game" is played, determines the rise and fall of nations. That's the real deal.

    Realpolik: a system of politics or principles based on practical rather than moral or ideological considerations.

    Yes. Realpolitik. There are many good youtube videos from real journalists that discuss Realpolitik. I watch them all day.

    I know the climate of this forum and don't even think about posting them here.

    I feel no compulsion to "wake" people up. I have no desire to argue with people.

    Debate requires good information and there is a dearth of that.

    Before the riot, dozens of members of Congress were lined up to contest the election in several states, and were just getting started on Arizona. Then, riot happens and the whole thing shuts down. After the riot, none of the members had the stomach to follow through with their presentations.

    Who benefits?

    The whole event stinks of manipulation (on both sides), as the country is accelerating towards a wall, and everyone is dying to be divided. I hope that is just a figure of speech and not a prophetic pun.
