Nancy Pelosi Drop-Kicks Jim Jordan’s Election-Denying Ass From 1/6 Investigation Committee

Published

on

Ever since Donald Trump incited a mob to lay siege on the U.S. Capitol in the hopes of blocking Joe Biden from becoming president, Republicans have pulled all manner of bullshit out of their asses in a sad attempt to explain why the failed insurrection wasn’t really that bad. Senator Ron Johnson has suggested he never feared for his life because the rioters were white. Rep. Paul Gosar has called the individuals who violently broke into the Capitol “peaceful patriots” and said the Department of Justice is “harassing“ them. Rep. Andrew Clyde has boldly and insanely claimed that “There was no insurrection and to call it an insurrection, in my opinion, is a bold-faced lie. Watching the TV footage of those who entered the Capitol and walked through Statuary Hall showed people in an orderly fashion staying between the stanchions and ropes taking videos and pictures…if you didn’t know the TV footage was a video from January the 6th, you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit.”

Obviously, Republicans have taken this tack because deep down inside, they know they‘re partially responsible for the events that took place on January 6, thanks to their promotion of the lie that Trump actually won the election. Hence, why they refused to support an investigation into the attack on Capitol Hill, knowing the results, for them, would look really, really bad. Unfortunately for the GOP, Nancy Pelosi wasn’t just going to sit back and let her colleagues across the aisle pretend as though the failed coup, which left five people dead, never happened; after the legislation to form a January 6 commission was blocked in the Senate, the House speaker announced that she would form a select committee to investigate the events surrounding the attack.

Realizing at that point that this thing was going to happen with or without them, Republicans decided they‘d better get some of their own on the panel. But instead of appointing, say, lawmakers who hadn‘t whipped Trump’s supporters into a frenzy over the lie that the election was stolen, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tried to place Reps. Jim Jordan and Jim Banks, two of the biggest Big Lie–pushing congressmen in the House on the committee. Which would basically be like if O.J. Simpson was appointed to a board investigating the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. To which Nancy Pelosi effectively responded: Go f–k yourself.

Per Yahoo News:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday rejected two of the five Republican choices for a select committee that is set to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, citing concerns about preserving the quality of the probe and asking that the GOP choose two replacements. “With respect for the integrity of the investigation, with an insistence on the truth and with concern about statements made and actions taken by these Members, I must reject the recommendations of Representatives [Jim] Banks and [Jim] Jordan to the Select Committee,” Pelosi said in a statement.

Because Republicans rejected the chance to form a bipartisan commission that would have been evenly split between five Democrats and five Republicans, Pelosi’s next option was to create a select committee to investigate the riot. Unlike the bipartisan commission, which would have given Republicans the opportunity to appoint whoever they wanted from outside Congress or any other branch of government, the select committee was set up by Pelosi and the rules for it were determined by her office as well. Pelosi, a California Democrat, reserved veto power over the five members appointed by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. And she used that power to boot Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Jim Banks, R-Indiana, from the committee.

While Pelosi said Wednesday that she was happy to accept McCarthy’s three other choices (Reps. Rodney Davis, Kelly Armstrong, and Troy Nehls), the minority leader—who himself voted to overturn the 2020 election results and rewritten history in Trump‘s favor since the Capitol attack—chose instead to throw a hissy fit, suggesting he‘d be taking his toys and going home. “Unless Speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees, Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts,” McCarthy said in a statement. In other words:

Anyway, we look forward to the results of the GOP’s “own investigation of the facts“ which will presumably conclude that Hunter Biden was behind the attack and that the only way to save democracy moving forward is to appoint Trump president for life.

John Travolta Shares Bittersweet News About Late Wife Kelly Preston’s Final Screen Role

Published

on

By Brent Furdyk.

John Travolta shared some news about late wife Kelly Preston with his 3.6 million Instagram followers.

On Thursday evening, Travolta posted the trailer for “Off the Rails”, the final film that Preston made before losing her battle with breast cancer last year.

As Travolta wrote in the caption, Preston was “very proud of it and of all of the wonderful talent that she got to work with in it.”

“A dying wish from their best friend, Anna (Andrea Corr), compels Cassie (Kelly Preston), Kate (Jenny Seagrove) and Liz (Sally Phillips) to put old feuds aside and take her 17-year-old daughter on an inter-railing journey across Europe that they did not quite finish during their studies,” the film’s synopsis explains.

“Now in their 50s, they are older but not necessarily wiser. With some bad luck, train strikes, and romantic entanglements thrown in their way, the trip promises as many laughs and tears and self-discovery as the first time around. The question is: will they reach their destination in time to honour their friend’s memory?”

As Travolta wrote, the film will be released theatrically in Ireland and the U.K. on Friday, July 23; a North American release date has not yet been announced.

Polk County Sheriff arrests 29 drug dealers, rocks their gold chains: ‘We got your gold’

Published

YouTube

The Polk County Sheriff is going viral after he donned gold chains owned by drug dealers who are now in the county jail.

Sheriff Grady Judd held a press conference this week to announce the arrests of 32 people connected to a drug trafficking operation.

Authorities seized narcotics with a street value of $283,000, $88,000 in cash, and $89,000 worth of jewelry in the sting operation that spanned 16 months.

Judd said law enforcement arrested 29 drug traffickers and issued arrest warrants for three others who are still at large.

“You can go ahead and turn yourself in or you can go to jail tired from running, but you’re gonna go to jail,” Sheriff Judd said, referring to the three fugitives.

Judd picked up several gold chains and wore them around is neck while taunting the jailed drug dealers.

“That’s right, they thought they were cool. How cool are you today?” He said, while holding mugshots of two of the dealers.

“Can y’all make up a rap song about this? Well, I’ll help you out. You see, we got your gold. We put your tail in the county jail. Think about that, brothas.”

bitchy | Elon Musk isn’t financially supporting Grimes, she’s with him for his personality?!

Published

on

Grimes and Elon Musk got together in early 2018. They made their couple-debut at the 2018 Met Gala, and months after that, Azealia Banks shared a story about hanging out in Elon’s house while he was on an acid-trip and Grimes was tittering away, and it’s a story that lives rent-free in my head to this day. I think that was when some of us began thinking of the Grimes-Elon relationship a certain way. That Elon is a weird friend-to-incels type of guy and Grimes is not that bright. In any case, Elon and Grimes had a baby, gave that baby a stupid name, and now Grimes is pretty much raising the baby on her own as Elon tweets about dogecoin and securities fraud. Did you know that Elon still isn’t financing Grimes or her career at all? The man is a billionaire! Grimes had to sign with a proper music label just to make a little money to support herself and baby X Æ A-12.

After three years and a baby, he’s still not supporting her financially at all? He’s not helping her with her career? Grimes is literally dating and having babies with one of the worst men on earth… because she likes his personality? Because she thinks Elon Musk is a cool guy? Oh, honey. Please have some self-respect.
