Jul. 22—The idea of a congressional commission to investigate the events of Jan. 6 had very little credibility from the start. Now it has even less.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected two Republican appointments to the commission, Reps. Jim Banks of Indiana and Jim Jordan of Ohio, citing their allegiance to former President Donald Trump, who is accused of inciting the Capitol riot.

Ok. But Pelosi named Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, a rapid anti-Trumpster. Schiff repeatedly leaked and lied about the Muller investigation into the unfounded Russian collusion allegations.

He has less credibility than Banks and Jordan combined.

Now GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy says his party won't participate in what will amount to a third impeachment trial of Trump.

The only purpose of this commission is to keep alive the word "insurrection" through the 2020 mid-term elections and beyond.

Self-dealing Shiawassee

When President Joe Biden and Democrats rammed through the $2 trillion American Rescue Plan we were told it was urgently needed to boost the economy and relieve suffering in American communities. Apparently, the officials in Michigan's Shiawassee County were really hurt by the pandemic. They allocated part of the county's funds to give their commission chair a $25,000 bonus and other officials handouts ranging from $2,000 to $10,000. And for this America added another huge pile to it's national debt for future generations to deal with.

Think today

In today's Think section, Ingrid Jacques warns the solid reforms to bring due process to campus sexual assault cases is in jeopardy because of Biden's appointment of an activist to head the Title IX program.

ETC.

Keep Canada on your no-go list. Biden says he won't reciprocate with our neighbor's decision to let in vaccinated Americans until at least August 21. Another bone-headed decision.

The Associated Press is blaming a spike in COVID-19 cases on an "onslaught of misinformation" about the vaccine. That fits the narrative being built to support censorship. But how does the AP know that's the reason? Maybe fully informed people are making decisions they deem best for themselves.
