America is suffering, everywhere you look seems to be going downhill. Inflation is devastating to our lower-paid people who have to choose between gas and food. Despite claims that our economy is doing well. The facts are it is collapsing with over 8% inflation and record gas prices our economy is slowing and soon will be upside down.

The supply chain is collapsing when the price of diesel fuel goes up everything goes up. Ships are sitting offshore burning fuel and just sitting unable to unload cargo and the administration asked why are the shipping companies raising rates? How dumb can you be? When the truck has to fill up most truckers do not have the 2 thousand dollars in cash. When America’s military has to fly in baby formula that’s an embarrassment around the world.

Our failures are legendary like Afghanistan which was a total disaster that cost us $85 billion worth of the best military equipment we had, not to mention the lives lost and the Americans left behind. Our word means nothing to those that helped us, we left them behind too. On the border, millions and millions of illegals are marching across and invading our country.

This has turned into a flood of people being spread throughout the country These millions are changing the makeup of our country. Of course, this violates the laws of the country but nobody in the government seems to care.

With all of this going on what is the Democratic house doing? A January 6th committee which looks more like a communistic show trial instead of a hearing to find out what went wrong and make recommendations to prevent a reoccurrence. Not this committee, they want to be judge, jury, and executioner. Rather than solving problems, Democrats are selectively redoing history in hopes to blame everything on Donald Trump.

This Committee is disgracing everything about our justice system. Our Constitution gives us the right to confront accusers, the right to a fair trial, and provides equal representation and the opportunity to cross-examine witnesses and offer rebuttal evidence. The Committee has wiped out those rights. They have refused to allow any sense of fairness and only provide their witnesses so there is no one challenging their story. Yes, they are in complete control and using that power to destroy our system of justice.

America is in a downward spiral, people are struggling to fill their gas tanks, feed their babies, and be sure their children get educated. Businesses can’t hire the employees they need and everything they order costs more and is delayed. People are unsafe on the streets of almost every city. The government doesn’t want to talk about any of those things. They will be glad to talk about the Jan 6th committee but not the causes of our problems. If they can change the subject to the Jan 6th committee and maybe people will forget the hole we’re in (in case you have not noticed), it is getting deeper by the day.

  1. The 1/6 committee is very biased. It only uses Republican witnesses. The nerve of them.

    Speaking of the hearings, are you happy your hard earned money went to Trump to pay for his hookers? Only in America can a billionaire get money from poor people.

      1. Did you watch today’s hearing? The noose tightened on Trump’s neck as he was told his scheme was illegal. Lock him up!

    1. David – You’re right, the people they show on TV and in public are all republicans, but they forgot the Democrati’s who were completely in charge of security. Typical show trial, interview only your enemies and out of hundreds of recorded interviews and millions of docs. pick just a few words that support you case. No need to show the context just what we want. Not one sense of fairness.

      Instead of a report where you must have facts, let’s put on a show where we can say anything and do not have to back it up with facts. The last investigation cost a lot and didn’t show the results we wanted so let’s do it ourselves where we do not have to give the other side any show time and without the truth getting in the way. Only problem some might see through this but the majorly, they are so uninformed they need us to show them the way.

  2. Mike,
    Check your facts before you make yourself look like a fool…again. The supply chain problem started before Biden was even president, gas prices are high because Saudi Arabia is screwing us, the Afghanistan debacle was started by Bush and your idol tried to overthrow the government. Lots of stuff going on.
    But, the Jan 6 committee is doing what we pay them to do, hold a hearing when something goes wrong and hold people accountable. Simple as that. The Rule of Law Republicans ( are even pushing the AG to indict trump for a litany of crimes. That’s republicans doing it.
    You just are the most bitter, sad old man who can’t write the truth. The facts are right before your eyes, stop deceiving readers.

    1. Martin, I did check the facts; the gas prices are high because Biden stopped the XL pipeline and cancelled many drilling permits. When we are independent oil producer, Saudi can do whatever they want and will not affect us.

      Leaving Americans and our friends behind has no excuse. I’m sure the Afghans love the billions of dollars of nice new equipment we left and a beautiful base, nice going. All other plans were different this is all on Biden.

      Jan 6 committee is a disgrace to the American justice system. The self-aggrandizement by Liz Cheney and the chair, Bennie Thomson plus Adam Schiff is disgusting. Their long introductions tell how important they are. If you support that type of Justise, you need some re-education in fairness.

      If Rule of Law Republicans get their way, will they allow Trump to defend himself or is the Jan 6 committee word final?
