Six Capitol Police Officers Suspended, Others Under Investigation in January 6th Riot

What the heck is this all about?

I think Trump’s peaceful patriots are owed an explanation ASAP about what was actually going on at the US Capitol on January 6th.   We need an investigation not run by Nancy Pelosi.

Remember this?

The Blaze has this headline in case you missed it:

6 Capitol officers suspended for alleged role in Jan 6 rioting, 29 others under investigation

6 Capitol Police officers have been suspended with pay for their alleged role in the rioting on Jan. 6, and 29 other officers have been placed under investigation.

A department spokesperson told CNN Thursday that officers could face punishment for violating their policies during the rioting .

The Chief of the Capitol Police resigned immediately following the attack, and Yogananda Pittman was assigned the role as acting chief. Only a few days ago the officer’s union issued a no-confidence vote for Pittman. I wonder why? Optics?

“Our Office of Professional Responsibility is investigating the actions of 35 police officers from that day. Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman has directed that any member of her department whose behavior is not in keeping with the Department’s Rules of Conduct will face appropriate discipline,” said John Stolnis.

Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio said that one of the suspended officers had taken a selfie with the rioters, while another had worn a “Make America Great Again” hat and helped direct them at the Capitol building.

Four protesters died at the Capitol rioting while one Capitol Police officer died and another two officers committed suicide in the days following the incident. Early reports indicated that the officer, Brian Sicknick, had been died from injuries he suffered from being hit by a fire extinguisher, but that account changed weeks later after more through investigation.

NPR on Pittman et al:

Former chief Steven Sund “ …told NPR he was rejected in his request for backup ahead of the Jan. 6th because of optics concerns.”

“Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Rules committees announced plans for a February 23 joint oversight hearing to examine security failures.”

That should be must-watch TV.  Mark your calendars—February 23rd!

Twenty-six House Republicans Tell Biden: Do Not Weaken Vetting of Refugees!

President Trump had followed through on his promise to use extreme vetting when reviewing applicants for the US Refugee Admissions Program and Chairman Joe has already said his administration will do away with the extra layers of security screening.

Twenty-six House Republicans earlier this month sent a letter to the administration, soon to be entirely run by Kamala (after dementia Joe said some very damaging things in his infomercial with Anderson Cooper), urging that they not let-up on vetting refugees and immigrants who want to be your new neighbors.

I hadn’t seen this news a week ago, and only became aware of it when I read the ABC story (below), a whiny account of how Biden can’t get the refugee admission numbers high enough very fast because of how that mean-spirited Trump had decimated the refugee industry over four years.

And, because they have to get rid of Trump’s extreme vetting before the pipeline to America will flow smoothly.

It is clear in the ABC story below that Biden/Harris are going to begin funneling millions of dollars to the refugee resettlement contractors*** as fast as they can.

Trump ‘decimated’ refugee program hampering Biden’s historic goal: Advocates


My question is:

Since there are 211 Republicans in the House right now, where do the other 185 stand on this vital security issue?

From Fox News:

House Republicans caution Biden administration against weakening vetting of refugees

EXCLUSIVE: More than two dozen House Republicans on Wednesday urged the Biden administration to oppose efforts to weaken screening for immigrants and refugees coming to the U.S. over national security concerns.

“We are extremely concerned with the Biden Administration’s plans to weaken screening and vetting for foreign nationals coming to the United States, including refugee applicants in the [U.S. Refugee Admissions Program] and other humanitarian-based U.S. immigration programs,” the letter, signed by 26 House Republicans says.

Go here to see the letter, and below is a screenshot of signatures of the 26 House members you should be thanking. You should let others in your district know about their brave work. Maybe write a letter to the editor of your local paper.

And, if you have a Republican Congressman or Congresswoman and they aren’t on here, ask them why they aren’t urging extra caution in vetting prospective ‘new Americans.’



***If you are new to the refugee issue, here below are the nine federal contractors that put the wellbeing of refugees above struggling Americans.

Adding insult to injury, you pay them with your tax dollars to place refugees throughout the country. They along with the US State Department determine where they will be placed.

And, these nine are always busy on The Hill putting pressure on lawmakers.

You can bet they blasted the twenty six above for daring to suggest that terrorists and other criminals could get into the program.
