McCarthy Says GOP Will Form Its Own Jan. 6 Commission

After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vetoed two House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy’s nominees to serve on the select Jan. 6 committee he promptly pulled the other reaming Republicans from participating. The showdown happened quickly as McCarthy made his decision to yank the remaining nominees less than an hour after Pelosi announced she vetoed Reps. Jim Banks and Jim Jordan’s nominations.

However, Rep. McCarthy isn’t completely abandoning the Republican Party the plan to further investigate the events surrounding the Capitol riot on Jan. 6th. Instead, the House Republican leader said the party will form its own commission instead of bending to the will of the Democrats.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“We will run our own investigation,” McCarthy said Wednesday, in a hastily called news conference. “Why was the Capitol so ill-prepared for that day when they knew on Dec. 14 they had a problem? And what have we done to make sure that never happens again?”

He railed against Pelosi for creating a “sham process” and refusing to seat Republican members on a committee, a line not previously crossed in the House.

“House Democrats must answer this question: Why are you allowing a lame-duck speaker to destroy this institution?” McCarthy said, referencing Pelosi’s pledge not to seek the speakership again after the end of her term, or foreshadowing Republicans winning back the House in 2022.

Rep. Jim Banks slammed Pelosi for rejecting his nomination to the 13-person committee

Pelosi “knew we would fight back against their political games, and that’s why she didn’t want us to participate in this committee,” Banks said. “It just goes to show this is entirely a political exercise on her part. It’s a shame. The American people deserve better.”

Republicans have called Pelosi out for showing her hand and making it obvious that the committee is a partisan push.

Rep. Banks, who McCarthy selected as the lead Republican on the panel alluded to future plans by the Republican party to form its own exploratory committee.

In a press conference, Rep. Jordan slammed Pelosi’s partisan scheme.

I’m convinced Nannie is every bit as mentally deficient as the White House “squatter!” I’m guessing those who vote for her are just as demented as she is, or are simply “willfully blinded” because they don’t want to give up their free stuff, and their ability to break the law and get away with it, etc., etc., etc. 🙁

I hope the GOP realizes the risks of losing the country and stands up to these radicals on the Left. Don’t fall in line with the left and their intimidation and false information.

WE NEED TO DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP in DC and DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE ABUSE OF POWER and NOW, INSIDER TRADING TWICE! Can we seriously sit back, do nothing, and allow this vile, evil person to continue her senior role in destroying our country and stripping us little by little of our constitutional rights?

Democrats want to legalize anarchy and ban law and order, all which is evidenced by many Democrats calling for more damage, destruction of property, harm and death in some cases to individuals.

People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

Thats right, If you want the real truth, form your own commission, because. you’ll never get it with the Democrats.

Jan 6th was far from a riot; unless you want to call the actions of a few, that most likely were put there to instill violence. They would never have been there if our government was following Constitution guidelines for Government by the People for the People.

That is right if all the people that went into the capital that day were bad people they
could have done what the British did and burned that place to the ground because there
was no one there that could have stopped them.
