After what seemed like two a year and a half because it has actually been a year and a half, the congressional hearings investigating the GOP and Donald Trump-led attempted takeover of the US Government begins this week.
The hotly anticipated hearings will be broadcast live by all network, cable, and online outlets that are actual news organizations.
Fox *News will not show the hearings live. Of course. Even though they spent years televising bullshit Benghazi hearings that led to absolutely nowhere, they have decided they do not have time for the biggest anti-government event since southern states unsuccessfully tried to break up the country.
With Merrick Garland and the Justice Department seemingly dragging their feet and slow-walking charging, arresting, and holding accountable the big shots who organized, funded, and executed the takeover plan, Congress has the full stage and all eyes to themselves.
As we’ve gotten closer to the start of the hearings, information has started leaking showing details that many already assumed, and which are just now – again, two and half years later – being confirmed. The heaviest of the assumptions and most obvious: The insurrection was meticulously planned, funded, and activated under the instructions from the White House and President, with every cabinet leader aware and complicit. That means the White House, Justice Department, Secret Service, CIA, Military, Department of Defense, and others were aware and/or complicit.
Just over the past few weeks we have seen the following people charged with Seditious Conspiracy:
Enrique Tarrio, Ethan Nordean, and Joe Biggs, Zachary Rehl, and Dominic Pezzola
White House and Donald Trump cuck and Chief of Staff, Peter Navarro was arrested for Contempt of Congress for ignoring their subpoena. His meltdown on live television where he whined about being held accountable for his actions was a preview of what all those entitled men are about to go through and show the world.
There are many questions about why former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Deputy White House Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino were not indicted since they, like Mark Meadows, knows all the dirt and probably participated in off of it as well. Some say Garland is holding out to get them to flip and turn on Trump, or that they already have, but until there’s actual information from the locked-down Justice Department, that’s all speculation and hope.
While not all of the big names will be testifying during the hearings, there are several people who you will want to watch and listen to:
Nick Quested who in the lead up to the insurrection, filmed Proud Boy and Oath Keepers leaders, Enrique Tarrio and Stewart Rhodes, respectively.
Capitol Police officer Caroline Edwards who was injured during the riot
There will be documents shared that have not been shared, and there will be data on what occurred that day America also died. The public will not get everything it needs – for now – but there will be enough to confirm what we all saw. In addition, there will be enough additional information that will certainly be added to the huge amount of data Merrick Garland’s justice department continues to gather, compile, and build their own case against the traitors.
For now, we are left to watch, listen, stream the hearings which will run beginning in Prime Time at 8pm EDT on Thursday, June 9th and June 23rd. There will be additional public sessions at 10am on June 13th, 15th, 16th, and 21st.
You can watch on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Fox Business, C-Span, MSNBC, CNN, YouTube, Twitter, and all of their news podcasts, NPR, and other places you get your news.
What is more important than where you watch is that you DO watch.
The insurrection is the singular most important event in generations and was the closest the American democratic experiment almost collapsed.
There is no “coming back” if an insurrection succeeds. Your life doesn’t just “go on as if there’s another administration.” There’s no help coming from another country. No police or military that will rescue you or save you from armed vigilantes and foot-soldiers lawlessly roaming cities establishing order. No election officials because elections will stop. No voting because voting will be suspended.
No opposition party because the leaders of any opposition party will be dead or at Guantanamo or a different black site.
Seems farfetched? Well, all of those warnings are the plans that were in place as part of Trump’s insurrection that he personally signed-off on.
Plans to assassinate then VP Mike Pence, to take President Biden to Guantanamo, and to bomb the location where Vice President Kamala Harris was expected.
If you are hearing this for the first time, then you are a low-information, uninformed citizen who would lose almost all your rights and not even know why.
You would be worse off than Ukrainian’s who were ready years in advance.
Democracy can be ugly and it was certainly ugly on January 6th, 2020. Democracies do not have a right to exist; they only exist in as much as citizens participate in strengthening laws, holding those who are traitors accountable, and learning from past and current mistakes.

The past two weeks we have witnessed competing styles of leadership in the actions of President Biden and CEO Elon Musk, and every observer got a clear view of why career politicians are needed in government and career entrepreneurs aren’t needed anywhere near government. President Biden led the democratic party through the most successful midterm outcomes for the…
You read it right. Despite consistently incorrect polling and pontificating by Nate Silver and his Five-Thirty-Eight polls, CNN and MSNBC talking heads, and by your least favorite neighbor, the Democratic Party kicked ass in President Biden’s and Vice President Kamala Harris’ first midterms. It is looking to be one of the most progressive and successful…
