After four months, Trump supporters who politely walked into the US Capitol building on January 6th are still being tortured in jail by the Biden regime for misdemeanor trespassing charges. Dozens are being held in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day, in violation of both US and international law governing the treatment of prisoners. They’re receiving jailhouse beatings, spat upon, subject to racist taunts from their guards and forced to eat off the floor. But the most frustrating thing about the entire situation has been the total silence of the cowardly GOP Representatives and Senators who have refused to speak out about this injustice.
Where is Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz or Rand Paul? Why are they unable to condemn Joe Biden’s goons zip tying a Trump supporter’s hands behind his back and then punching his eyeball out of the socket? Democrats Elizabeth Warren and Dick Durbin have done more to speak out against the mistreatment of Trump supporters than all Republican congressmen and senators combined, to date.
But wait… Has hell frozen over? Have pigs begun to fly? We seem to have a bit of a miracle on our hands, folks!
Because not one – not two – but THREE Republican congressmen finally stood up for Trump supporters in House Oversight Committee hearing this week. The hearing was titled, “The Capitol Insurrection: Unexplained Delays and Unanswered Questions.”
Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) took exception to even the title of the hearing – because this was NOT an “insurrection.” Clyde noted correctly that if you didn’t know the video footage was from January 6th, the “insurrection” looked no different than most of the tourist visitor days they used to hold at the Capitol before Nancy Pelosi locked it up behind razor wire.
The “insurrectionists” politely walked between the velvet ropes and didn’t break anything inside the building. One smiling Trump supporter carried Nancy Pelosi’s podium around for a few minutes. Whoop-ti-doo!
Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) also lambasted the premise of the hearing. There was no insurrection and no riot. There was no “attack” on the Capitol. Hice stated that it was “Trump supporters who lost their lives that day, not Trump supporters who were taking the lives of others.”
Both of those gentlemen from Georgia deserve props for having the courage to go off the official script and speak the truth publicly. But the real star of the show was Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ). When it was Gosar’s turn to question former acting Attorney General James Rosen, he fired with both barrels.
You and I and most Americans outside of Washington, DC are absolutely disgusted by the banana republic torture tactics and criminality of the Biden regime. Yet for four months, every elected Republican has refused to stand up for our friends and neighbors who have been jailed as political prisoners. That’s not an accident. The Reps and Senators have been told by the party bosses to shut their mouths about it.
Paul Gosar didn’t shut his mouth. Every question that he asked was met with gasps from the gallery. Rosen sat there in stunned silence for several seconds after every question that Gosar asked:
“Was Ashli Babbitt armed?” (4-second stunned pause from Rosen.)
“Was the death of Ashli Babbitt a homicide?” (Rosen sat there for a full five seconds with his mouth hanging open at this question. Answer: Ashli Babbitt’s death certificate classifies her demise as a “homicide.”)
“Who executed Ashli Babbitt?” (6-seconds of stunned, uncomfortable pause from Rosen)
Rosen, of course, never actually answered any of those pointed questions. Each time he simply took a few seconds to pick his jaw up off the floor before muttering that he wasn’t going to go into any specifics about blah-blah-blah.
You could have cut the tension in the room with a knife as Rep. Paul Gosar said the un-sayable and asked the questions about Ashli Babbitt’s state-sanctioned execution that we all want answers to. He didn’t get any answers, but God bless him for asking the questions. That’s more than any of the usual “GOP rock stars” who are on Fox News all the time have said about Ashli Babbitt’s murder.
She deserved better from her country. So do all of the Trump supporters still being held in the Biden torture cells.
