So, I guess he'll just tell the committee to listen to this?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

If Dems had spines, this would be the audio of every campaign ad in 2022 and 2024.

So this will be the last you'll hear of it.

"McCarthy said during a little-noticed radio interview done a week after the insurrection that the deadly insurrection was "planned" and that Trump admitted personally bearing some responsibility for the attack. he also said that he supported censuring Trump for inciting the violence, according to CNN."

Ooops.

Very few of our politicians live in a world where truth matters.

It is always how you market it.
This isn't going to matter.

"I, Kevin McCarthy, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

Maybe we should impeach him, oh right, we tried that, twice. 

/sadly nothing will happen
 
2022-01-14 3:23:42 PM  
Trump's not going to like hearing that Qevin actually wanted him held accountable, just not at the level of impeachment.
 
2022-01-14 3:23:52 PM  
So, when do public executions for treason start?  Have Biden drag out all the treasonous enemies of the state out on the steps of the white house and saw their heads off isis style.  We cannot allow treason.  We are all in this together, except for those not in it with us.  The enemy must be eliminated.
 
2022-01-14 3:23:58 PM  
He owns the deaths of every person who died that day.

And if this nation doesn't hold him fully accountable NOW, then this nation never really was.
 
2022-01-14 3:24:22 PM  
So he wanted blame for January 6th to be firmly pinned on Trump before evidence could be uncovered that he also helped orchestrate the insurrection, and now that he knows that won't work he is going to ride or die with Trump? I think TFG just found a potential scapegoat.

In an exchange first reported by the Washington Post, McCarthy said: "There's ...there's two people, I think, Putin pays: [California Representative Dana] Rohrabacher and Trump ... [laughter] ... swear to God."

This must have been right before Qevin slobbered the knob.

Or the Mango Mussolini laid out what blackmail he had on him.

Or both?

This, he'll just say that circumstances have changed.  So his hypocrisy can and should be excused.

Because the problem is non-specific "politicians", not any particular person or party.
 
2022-01-14 3:30:27 PM  
Republicans won't care. They're entirely driven by nonsense propaganda and their own idiocy. All it took was one narcissistic sociopath unable to accept his loss for the whole party, less a handful of people who stand with our democracy, to betray us all.
 
2022-01-14 3:31:09 PM  
This should sink him. No one is held accountable like GOP politicians are.

I expect there are some secret grand juries that have already heard this.

Another thing, what if you have no shame?
 
2022-01-14 3:32:39 PM  
This is old news.

And he isn't admitting to some personal knowledge of a plan.  He just had eyes, and could see the same thing the rest of us saw that these people were obviously acting in a coordinated fashion to breach the Capitol.

This was common knowledge even during Trump's 2nd impeachment trial.  If it didn't matter then, it won't matter now.

Someone pointed out that treason is defined in the constitution (rather narrowly) and premised on the country being at war (i.e. declaration by congress) with a country.

We've proven during the civil war we can be at war with ourselves and charge people with treason.

There is some irony in that, by gerrymandering districts so hard, republicans ensure they can't win their primary without supporting the worst elements of their party.  They traded competing against democrats for the center for competing against batshiat crazy social media influencers for the far right. They probably should have stuck with the deal they had.

Immediately seize him, load him up on a plane, and drop him into Gitmo.  Parachute optional.

The worst of their party are/were the smart ones, not the batshiat crazy ones.

That "someone" is wrong.  You can interpret it that way, if you torture plain English a little, but it certainly does not state that with particularity.

kore: JFC, politics erodes ethics. He knows in his heart what is right and wrong yet he toes the party line.


Well yeah...but then our in practice reality on a day to day basis is, no matter how good/right/honest/true you are, you can still wind up broke, or destitute or having opportunity taken from you, and so on and so on and so on.

And all the while those who just overtly openly perpetrate selfish evil, don't appear to have particularly high odds of any of that ruing them. We are consistently shown that if you harm a bunch of other people in seeking your own wealth. You are probably going to be allowed to retain plenty of the ill-gotten profits, and allowed to carry on conducting business as usual, you'll just have to pay some % of what you scammed as a fine and then be on your way.


kinda looks like the in practice reality, at least here in murica, is actually an environment that makes such selfish parasitic behavior, a rational choice. Immoral sure, but actually rational.
then  here we are, it's irrational to try and be moral and uphold your "oaths" when that behavior has no more guarantees of good outcomes than shiatty selfish behavior does.
And as far as i can tell, from the last 40 years of observations, your odds of doing ok for yourself by being immoral are way way better than if you tried to really be real about your oaths and the laws of the land.


Like this:
Did you have food, shelter, and water today, becasue it was gaurnteed to yo, by your participation in civilization?
Or do you have food, shelter and water today, becaseu in some way, you competed for it, with literally everyone else in the lands around you?

one of those is civilization.
the other is the jungle.

so as long as we really just live the jungle life, then that morality you imagine, that's the lie the upper crust pushes on the lower caste suckers.
notice how they consistently use examples of poorer people, who have sworn no oaths to anything, being the go to typical immorality examples.
And not the actually reasonable ones, of those who have position, privilege, authority, and may have even sworn oaths, who there are no end to the examples of their immoral greed on display.


Never let anyone positioned better than you, convince you it's on you to behave better than them.
that's a caste system of exploited servitude.

Sure seems like the Fark progressive Brigade, mods included, like to circle jerk around this asinine talking point. At no point was our Democracy materially threatened. Some arsehole's got all hopped up on Trump and went all Mad Max in the capital and now are being thrown in jail for their stupid shenanigans. I swear if Progressives could build a statue dedicated to Jan 6 they would pray to it on the daily. It's laughable when the Left derides Fox News and the right wing media for idiotic bullshiat like this and then clutch their pearls and land on their (ethically sourced and free-trade with the pronouns of they/them) fainting couch when their side does it.
 
2022-01-14 4:02:41 PM  
In all honesty, after all the openly committed crimes that came and went without a whisper from the DOJ or law enforcement or anybody else for that matter... how is anyone supposed to know whats allowed and what isnt?

If recruiting Russia to help you with your election campaign and using foreign aid as a carrot to extort other leaders into helping you dig up some dirt on your political opponents is allowed... why not violent insurrection?

So..... when it happened he was honest, the worst thing a politician could be.  Then the $$ and the pollsters told him to get in line or they were going to remove him from a leadership role and try to primary him.  So like a true politician, he changed his color and lies/ acts dumb when confronted with what he really said or did.   "Post Truth" politics at its best.

Because it's what a majority of this country wants.
Actually, a majority just doesn't care enough to do anything.
They can't even be bothered to mark a checkbox on a form.
But it's the majority of the rest.

A 'spontaneous protest' that had custom t-shirts, scouting missions, and interference with countermeasures.

/Also, not a protest, not a riot
