Election 2020: Still Talking Jan. 6 "Insurrection" Committee

Nancy Pelosi's hand picked totally objective 'Jan. 6 chose insurrection or else' committee is still the talk of the town, with the addition of never-Trumper Adam Kinzinger. At Da Caller Virginia Kruta, Pelosi Adds Adam Kinzinger To Jan. 6 Commission, Doubles Down On Ousting Jordan, Banks and (via the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 07.26.21 ) The Victory Girls, Adam Kinzinger “Humbly” Joins Jan 6 Inquisition, and Ace goes for the throat with Nancy Pelosi Appoints Adam Kinzinger to January 6 Kangaroo Court, to Maintain The Illusion of Republican Participation; Kevin McCarthy Blasts the Move as Stocking the Commission With Leftwing Fish, "Hero."

Capt. Ed at Hot Hair, McCarthy: Pelosi handpicking 1/6 committee members to push "pre-conceived narrative". Well, duh! PM has the video, WATCH: McCarthy rips Cheney and Kinzinger as 'Pelosi Republicans', also WATCH: Psaki says Biden 'continues to support Speaker Pelosi's leadership' of Jan 6 committee.   AllahPundit at Hot Hair whines that McCarthy calls Cheney and Kinzinger  "Pelosi Republicans" for agreeing to join the January 6 committee and CNN is unhappy that a Growing group of GOP members wants McCarthy to punish Kinzinger and Cheney for joining January 6 committee, and Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media is happy but agrees, It's Time to Purge the 'Pelosi Republicans' as Tristan Justice at Da Fed reports Liz Cheney Is The Most Unpopular Republican In The Country (via the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 07.26.21 ). Not a high bar. I credit Ann for actually stopping to think about it in "For too long, we’ve been pretending that Jan. 6 didn’t happen. Kevin McCarthy is technically my Republican leader. And to call members of Congress by childish names like Donald Trump used to do, I guess is just kind of par for the course."

They've accepted a role on the committee. Now, Kinzinger and Cheney need to step up and distinguish themselves. It's fine that McCarthy has laid down his insult. It's a default interpretation that represents what many of us believe, that the committee will not seek the truth but do the political work of the Democrats. I'm sure Kinzinger and Cheney would love us to trust them and to regard them as truth-bringers. But I want a fire lit under them. They'll need to rebut the presumption that they're "Pelosi Republicans."
It's a fine thought, but I'm not holding my breath. Nick Arama at Red State tells us what a  Congressman Reveals What He Said and Did to Officer Who Shot Ashli Babbitt "The first clip that I’ve seen involves an interview with Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK). He explains how he hugged the Capitol Police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt and told him that he “did what he had to.” Bulwark girlz Amanda Carpenter, whines about Trump’s Big Lie Litmus Test, "He’s playing kingmaker and enforcer."

"... greater than ISIS or al Qaeda or China or Russia, why do they need to manufacture a plot — and put in people's heads — the idea let's go kidnap Governor Whitmer? There should be tons of plots that they are detecting? That leads to the question people on your network and others have asked to the horror of the liberal sector of the corporate media, which is: What did the FBI know about the planning of the January 6 attack? How embedded were they in these groups? Because what happens is when these kinds of attacks happen, the FBI and the security state seize on them to say See? there are grave dangers, we need more money, more power, more surveillance authorities in order to keep you safe. And so if they are the ones driving it, it leads to the question of what those motives are."

Also from the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 07.26.21, Mary Chastain at LI reports, Big Tech To Expand Joint Database On Domestic Groups, Focused On “Far-Right” Extremists. Using both a generous definition of "far-right" and "extremists." Tyler O'Neil at PJ Media, PayPal and ADL Team Up to Disrupt 'The Financial Pipelines' Supporting 'Hate and Bigotry'. Sundance at CTH, Paypal Partners With Anti-Defamation League to Block Financial Transactions for Extremists and Hate Movements and The Intelligence Branch and Big Tech Say The Quiet Part Out Loud – Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, Google and Big Tech Writ Large Will Monitor Platforms and Report Extremist Content to FIVE EYES Intelligence  Network. Kurt Schlichter thinks It’s Fun Watching The Press Humiliate Itself.

 Also from the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 07.26.21 at Louder With Crowder: Comedian Explains Free Speech Slowly Enough For Joe Biden To Understand,

Zach Vorhees at Town Hall thinks Trump’s Lawsuit Is Problematic for Big Tech but Anxious hopes that Conservative courts could rescue tech. Sadly, they might be right. 

At Da Signal, What to Know About How Those ‘Fugitive’ Texas Democrats Will Pay for Stay in DC. Spoiler, it won't be their money. At Weasel Zippers, (also via the Wombat)  Fleeing Texas Democrat whines  ‘Rural Cops’ Are After Us!… I hope so.

Stacy McCain identifies The #1 Cause of Anti-Semitism
If the Anti-Defamation League wants to do something to suppress anti-Semitism in this country, they would encourage Chuck Schumer to retire or, failing that, tell him to stop insulting Americans:
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer berated 74 million Trump voters, saying at an event with Roosevelt Island and Upper East Side community leaders in New York that they voted for a “despicable,” “racist,” and “vile” man.
“How could 74 million people vote for such a despicable human being as Donald Trump?” Schumer asked in the video. “I don’t care if you’re a liberal or a conservative, Democrat or Republican, he is a vile man.”
“He is dishonest, divisive. That’s what he loves to do. Just divide and have people fighting with each other. He’s a racist,” Schumer claimed. “And he always appeals to the dark side of human nature.”
Everything that Schumer said about Trump is twice as true of Schumer, who is and always has been one of the most dishonest and divisive people in American politics. The fact that New Yorkers would elect such a vicious scumbag to the Senate is a stain upon the reputation of New York.

Anxious is anxious, First look: Don Jr., Ron DeSantis dominate poll of GOP frontrunners.
