Democrats are burning with rage after the stinging defeat of Senate Republicans blocking Nancy Pelosi’s sham “9/11 style” commission. They are more determined than ever to see supporters of former President Donald J. Trump on the receiving end of government persecution.
Chuck Schumer is fuming and vowing another Senate vote and Pelosi is turning her sights to a highly partisan House investigative committee. Meanwhile, some Democrats are calling for Joe Biden to get involved.
Democrat Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia called for Biden to create a presidential commission to probe the so-called “insurrection” at the Capitol. That event has served as a political bludgeon for his party and an excuse to crush any dissent against their one-party rule.
In a statement issued by Connolly, the congressman urges Biden to create the commission by executive decree. This would allow the highest-ranking politician in the land to weaponize the government against his predecessor and possibly future opponent. This would mark the first time in the nation’s history that something typically seen in third-world hellholes would be sanctioned by officials.
In light of the GOP’s cowardly filibuster of a bipartisan Jan 6th commission I urge President Biden to form and appoint a Presidential Commission to fully investigate the insurrection of January 6th at the US Capitol.

According to Rep. Connolly, “In light of the GOP’s cowardly filibuster of a bipartisan January 6th Commission, I urge President Biden to form and appoint a Presidential Commission to fully investigate the insurrection at the United States Capitol, to identify the individuals and organizations who plotted or were involved in those violent acts, and to make recommendations to prevent such an attack from ever recurring.”
Connolly who is the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on Government Operations is a man obsessed as well as prone to emotional outbursts.

Want to see another liberal meltdown? CLICK HERE, you won’t be disappointed….
The Big Lie of the “armed insurrection” is the cornerstone of a permanent Democrat majority and has been repeated constantly by the likes of Pelosi. This all in spite of the fact that the only shot fired on that day was the one from the still-unidentified murderer who gunned down a female veteran Trump supporter in cold blood.
Connolly’s idea got a boost from foaming-at-the-mouth fascist lunatic, former ESPN commentator Keith Olbermann. He is all for the idea of a special commission and he championed it in a sad and pathetic Twitter diatribe.
They should also get a Special Prosecutor to indict Trump and the Congressmen and Senators who fomented the Coup. pic.twitter.com/bF7e0nvtKd

Olbermann may be badly in need of serious mental help but to believe that he is an outlier and not representative of the majority of the rabidly authoritarian Democratic party base would be a mistake.
There are growing calls for Biden to go full banana republic dictator with the creation of such an investigative body by executive order. Another supporter is liberal law professor Lance Cole who penned an op-ed for the New York Daily News that was published on Friday.
OPINION | Biden should appoint a Jan. 6 commission
Americans deserve to know what happened Jan. 6 and why. The public should have well-founded assurances of changes to ensure — never again.
Prof. Lance Cole, legal adviser to the 9/11 Commission, writeshttps://t.co/HTxTrO45oZ

According to Cole, “While McConnell and his GOP allies in the Senate may be able to stop the House bill from becoming law, that need not prevent a special commission investigation of the worst attack on the Capitol since the War of 1812 and the worst act of insurrection in the United States since the Civil War. Biden can and should create a blue-ribbon commission to investigate the attack,” he wrote.
Democrats and their backstabbing RINO allies (Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and Ben Sasse) won’t openly admit that such a sham process is critical to preventing another White House run by Trump in 2024. They are terrified of the very idea and quake in their boots that this time around it will be no more Mr. Nice Guy if Trump is elected.
Biden has previously expressed support for the “9/11 style” version of Pelosi’s kangaroo court, Though he has not yet given any hints of whether he would go to such an extreme measure. Likely, he knows it would likely be seen as an open declaration of war on half of the country.
