January 6 is not a riot
First, I don’t consider January 6th a riot. We saw a lot of riots throughout last summer, up until the November 2 election. The riots included burning of buildings and violence. From what I see, the only violence is directed at the patriots who visit the nation’s Capitol. Violence against the patriots continues to this day, with political prisoners in a DC prison, for a year, without bail for misdemeanors. A few broken windows did not create a riot. The police apparently allowed people to enter the building, then they stood in the stands to witness and cry like babies. A few so-called Republicans on the committee were excluded from the party by their states. I do not expect any facts to come out of the hearings; In fact, it’s a waste of taxpayers’ money.

Unhealed wounds in our country
With 64% of all Americans feeling that democracy is in crisis, and the same feeling that the Biden administration is not promoting the nation’s welfare adequately, it’s no surprise that the wound of January 6 still not healed? Both sides denied the rioters’ actions; one side refuses to let go of the opportunity of exploitation to promote justice. The Commission is hardly an impartial investigative body of the event. It includes the same ilk that gave two completely absurd impeachment trials. All levels of government have failed to disprove the evidence that calls into question the integrity of the election. The cure will look very different from the blood transfusion Dems is prescribing.

January 6 wounds still
For those directly and indirectly affected by the violent and ignorant criminals who tried to prevent Congress from certifying the election of President Joe Biden, the wound remains. Only when there is adequate punishment for all involved can the mental and physical anguish truly be healed. As dangerous and despicable as this insurrection attempt is, but what’s really positive is that their authoritarian tactics have failed.
