January 6, 2021 was the second day “that will live in infamy wil join another date with that dishonor, December 7, 1941 when Japan almost destroyed the United States Navy Pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The United States government was caught with it’s pants down on January 6, 2021. It was publicly known that the white supremacist
Researching to write this commentary I found the following information at the wikipedia.com web site:
“The Pearl Harbor advance-knowledge conspiracy theory is the argument that U.S. Government officials had advance knowledge of Japan‘s December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor. Ever since the Japanese attack, there has been debate as to how and why the United States had been caught off guard, and how much and when American officials knew of Japanese plans for an attack. In September 1944, John T. Flynn, a co-founder of the non-interventionist America First Committee, launched a Pearl Harbor counter-narrative when he published a forty-six page booklet entitled The Truth about Pearl Harbor.
Several writers, including journalist Robert Stinnett, retired U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Robert Alfred Theobald, and Harry Elmer Barnes have argued various parties high in the government of the United States and the United Kingdom knew of the attack in advance and may even have let it happen or encouraged it in order to ensure America’s entry into the European theatre of World War II via a Japanese–American war started at “the back door”. However, the Pearl Harbor advance-knowledge conspiracy is rejected by several U.S. historians as a fringe theory.“
It must be a National priority to do a thorough and deep investigation as to the reasons for the collapse of the security apparatus of the Federal government. Internet social media was inundated with postings and detail information of an imminent attack at the U.S. Capitol. The culprits even compared the types of weapons they were going to bring to the insurrection. Senator John Warner, the new up-coming Chair of the Senate Intelligence Senatorial Committee must request an extensive report to the National Security Agency of what and when they knew about the planning and post-mortem of the attack.
The investigation must be public and transparent Don’t sweep it under the rug, you will be judge by history, in the same manner that The lies of Vietnam, the Clinton criminal sexual behavior, his cover -up and subsequent impeachment . The People are closely watching.The mere fact that 75 million American voted for the narcissist and lunatic president must be analyzed carefully and methodically and is highly disturbing . The election of November 3, 2021 not only goes to the heart of the National conscience but as well as to the roots of democracy. The event of January 6, 2021 was not a riot, it was simply an assault against democracy. There must be consequences and impunity is not an option.
There must be a strong policy of accountability and responsibility in the investigations after the aftermath of January 6, 2021. Impunity is totally unacceptable. Just think that instead of the attack of the White Supremacist the attacker would have been a foreign power? Russia, China or any other enemy of the United States. May be it would be a good time to learn “Mandarin”.The Nation’s law and order platform must act swiftly in chargin the prosecuting the culprits with only one objective in mind protecting the rule of law, the constitution and the Nation. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW.
President Trump is still defiant and challenging the foundations of the rule of law this morning at The White Hiouse . Departing this morning to Texas to see his dark wall he did not assumed any responsibility for his instigation to commit insurrection neither has called the families of the 5 persons killed in the aftermath! He must be accounted for. The same should be done to Senator Ted Cruz and John Hawley.
The obvious treatment that the Capitol police, National guard, FBI etc. must also be reviewed carefully. The contrast between the treatment of the “Washington Black Live Matter” summer protest and what transpired January 6th is appalling.
Our National constitution provides a number of constitutional tools of rules for the removal of any one, including the president that violates the rule of law. As we speak the meager White House staffers . still working, are shredding evidence that may be used against them to sustain the illegal acts of the Trump’s White House Family Criminal organization during the past 4 years. This is real serious state business and must be handle with the greatest care and methods, always respecting equal application of the law. History is full of examples of how covering -up generated more crimes that the one that generated the investigation
If nothing is done, the January 6 date, not only will be a day that will live in infamy but the beginning of the end of the American dominance Nationwide and world wide! Don’t miss the bus of the what is right. As Dr. Martin Luther King once said: “It is always the right time to do the right thing”
