President Joe Biden and the Democrats aren't looking to debate policies or discuss any of the major problems that are affecting the country currently. Because if they were, all the attention would be on their failings. That's why they want to shift attention to the January 6 Committee and the trial they're hoping to promote to viewers.
It's not just an open televised trial, but it also has producers like any other TV drama. According to Axios, “James Goldston—former president of ABC News, and a documentary storyteller who ran ‘Good Morning America' and ‘Nightline’—has joined the committee as an unannounced adviser.”
A source informed the news outlet that Goldston “is busy preparing the Thursday's 8 P.M. ET hearing like an investigational blockbuster” and “plans to keep it uncut enough that journalists who are skeptical will be able to see the information fresh, and be able to chew on the information in the future reporting.”
Yet, they're participating in this whole endeavor and have spent a lot of cash on the committee (yes, we're paying Democrats to attempt to make an impact on the political landscape of Republicans). What's funny is how they're cutting back on expectations. While certain Democrats have attempted to claim that there could be major revelations, they're now claiming that the committee is trying to “temper expectations” as to the kind of revelations that could be shared while claiming that most of it was previously reported. Translation? They're not able to do anything significant after the millions of dollars they have spent to ridicule their political adversaries.
The Democrats have made this case into Mueller 2.0, and they'll give it the same amount of resources, which is not even mentionable. Democrats should be prepared to be disappointed again. Then they go on to acknowledge that the episode reveals nothing new. “But our aim is to tie that all together in a comprehensive narrative.”
That's it–the word “narrative.” It's a performance, a TV-produced production, and that's why they require a TV actor. They don't want you to consider the facts on your own. They must explain to you what is what so that you will accept their story. Oh, Democrats, this is America. The government can't determine what the people believe. What kind of performance drama? They use teleprompters for their speeches.
In a tweet about former President Donald Trump's tweet on January 6, Rep. Liz Cheney (RINO-WY) provided an example of the spin and falsehood that the committee will put out. Cheney read only part of the tweet, leaving out the crucial part (“Go home with love & in peace”), to mislead people while also skipping other details of what Trump had said and done that day. She justified it by saying that people were “doing what they should be doing.”
However, Trump's own statements from the day do not agree with her assertion. That afternoon, Trump also made this comment: “I know your pain, I know you’re hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt. It’s a very tough period of time. There’s never been a time like this where such a thing happened where they could take it away from all of us—from me, from you, from our country. This was a fraudulent election, but we can’t play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace. So go home. We love you. You’re very special. You’ve seen what happens. You see the way others are treated that are so bad and so evil. I know how you feel, but go home, and go home in peace.”
Therefore, he wasn't “justifying” what the protestors did or saying they did the right thing. He was saying there needed to be peace. However, that doesn't match the story, and so Cheney decided to leave it out and spin the remainder. We shouldn't expect much from this partisan show in terms of integrity.
However, while Cheney's deceit took incredible courage, Rep. Adam Schiff (Delusional-CA) was awarded the prize for his comments. Schiff to @wolfblitzer: “Well, these hearings are not aimed at the midterms or at the next presidential election. These are aimed at trying to protect our democracy from anyone who poses a threat to it.”
If you believe that, I have an unfinished bridge located in Brooklyn to offer you.
