Ooooh. Cool. Is this where we get to watch Flynn’s brother get subjected to a Court Martial?

Most important here are the appointments of Minions, Toadies and Sycophants like Miller, Patel, and Flynn (brother) into key DOD posts after Esper quit. These incompetents were supposed to make the military kowtow to the Trumpanzee’s worst instincts and dark plans.

Am I to assume that “reax” is the same as “reacts”?

If they insist on a real investigation, which I doubt, they’ll find out what everyone already knows. The military brass are mostly Trumpers and that’s it.

I think it’s a short “reaction”…

I’m still not sure what it means. Not even sure it is English though apparently it is supposed to be. I realize there’s an age gap with me being older but does that mean there’s that much of a language gap?

Naw. DoD wouldn’t have given him his fourth star and a major command if they thought he had something dirty to hide.

His participation in the call delaying the troops is most certainly of interest, I’m leaning towards the delay being deliberate to prevent the troops from being used on the wrong side. Very convenient that they only showed up when the Capitol was already basically secured and just in cleanup operations.

Wait… … … “clean up operations”?? I thought that these were Boomers doing a self guided tour of a public building. And nothing more than hugging and kissing police in a present day “love-in”. you’re saying there was a lot of trash to pick up?? These images of rioting and broken windows happened elsewhere and they were all crisis actors or Antifa villains I was told…

Very important, given the respective systems Trump and the Military are subject to.

“The Select Committee is dedicated to telling the complete story of the unprecedented and extraordinary events of January 6th, including all steps that led to what happened that day, and the specific actions and activities that followed between January 6th and January 20th, 2021.”

And Trump, the Republican party, FOX News, and all right-wing media are just as dedicated to putting it all down the memory hole and replacing it with nonsense that their minions will devour voraciously.

I once believed that they were rioters, but then I heard about my friend’s cousin’s bother-in-law’s hair-stylist’s plumber’s ex-husband, who also believed it was a riot, and the other day, he drank too much and broke his leg tripping over the dog, so, you know, do your own research.
