Democrat House Speaker has now officially banned pro-Trump congressman Jim Jordan from serving on the controversial January 6th commission. As Fox News reports:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday she’s rejecting two of the five GOP picks to sit on the newly-formed Jan. 6 select committee.

Pelosi said Wednesday she won’t appoint Reps. Jim Jordan from Ohio or Jim Banks from Indiana – two strong allies of former President Donald Trump – to the committee formed to investigate the cause of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and make recommendations on preventing future violence.

Her decision immediately sparked backlash from GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy who called Pelosi’s move “unprecedented” and threatened to have all Republicans boycott the committee if Jordan and Banks didn’t get appointed.

“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 response to Pelosi’s unhinged move, GOP leader McCarthy yanked all of his nominees for the committee and is now vowing that the GOP won’t participate at all. As the Hill reports:

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has decided not to participate in the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot on the Capitol, yanking all of his GOP picks in protest of Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s (D-Calif.) decision to reject two top Republicans.

“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,” he said in a statement.

Pelosi seems dead set on turning an already questionable inquiry into an open witchhunt against Donald Trump and his supporters.

She’s afraid that she’ll be asked what her role in the January 6th “insurrection” was and she wont be able to lie about it any longer. Let’s hope that McCarthy doesn’t capitulate. This just shows that Pelosi should be removed as House Speaker since she clearly does NOT represent ALL Americans.

Now since no Speaker of the House no matter what political party can represent all the people all the time, since this is a Democratic Republic, that Speaker is suppose to represent the MAJORITY of the people and she has so far. Over 60% of the population say Trump is responsible for what the people did on 6 Jan, through his lies about the election with not one ounce of proof in any way, now when Democratic voters out number republican voters by over 13 MILLION, what other outcome was expected in the 2020 election, it is not how many go to rallies but how many go to the voting booth.

The answer to that would be that not many dimokraps actually “go to the voting booths”.Really hard for the dead ones and the “ballot harvesters”. The dimokraps blood bath in the mid terms will change this destruction of our society .

You may think that 60% of the people in this country think that President Trump is responsible. That’s why there’s an inquiry. You need to stop watching CNN

Let’s see now, you really believe more people voted for Biden than any other person in the history of our country? Trump aside, you think he got more votes than Obama? Or Kennedy? Or Roosevelt? The only other person who got that many votes , ever, was Pres. Trump in 2016. And besides that, you all didn’t go to the booths either, you all wanted to use the mail-in votes. And there is no way 60% of us believe he was responsible, did you forget there was videos of that whole thing you all are trying to twist into a riot, you should go back and see what your precious antifa was doing for the entire year of 2020. While your own co-horts dressed like us, were breaking in the front, your reps went running out the back making it look like they were afraid. Chicken sh**ts wouldn’t even stick it out. And don’t tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about, I seen the same people like in Portland, there! Go ahead, dispute it, I dare ya! I can prove what I say.

The Democrats brought in and paid for ANTI FA and crew to cause trouble!!! The others were patriots there to support their President and right to assemble and state their right to freedom!! Patriots that stand of all that America was founded on and for; the Constitution, the other great documents and were totally in their right to be there!! THAT IS OUR CAPITOL. NOT THE GOVERNMENTS! THIS IS OUR NATION, NOT THE GOVERNMENTS..THEY ARE OUR EMPLOYEES AND WORK FOR US AND SHOULD ALMOST ALL BE FIRED FOR THEIR TREASON AND HUNG IN FRONT OF THE CAPITOL- AFTER A MAJOR TRIAL PROVING JUST WHAT THEY HAVE DONE!!!!! It was not us attacking the Capitol, it was part of OUR GOVERNMENT, THE DEMOCRATS THAT PAID TO HAVE IT ATTACKED!! WAKE UP AND GET REAL ALL OF YOU THAT READ THIS AND GET WITH SAVING THIS NATION FROM THE COMMUNISM THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE TAKING US TO…THEY MUST BE REMOVED!!!! SUCH TRAITORS TO AMERICA THEY ALL ARE! THE PATRIOTS AT THE CAPITOL THAT DAY WOULD DIE AND DID DIE FOR THE FREEDOMS OF THIS NATION! WE WILL KEEP ON FIGHTING FOR WHAT IS RIGHT, GOOD AND FOR FREEDOMS WE HAVE A RIGHT TO! WE BUILT THIS NATION AND MADE IT A GREAT ONE–until the fools that want to take it all apart to communism got into the government and the country left borders open to all the evil that has come here to ruin our wonderful country! We were founded on truth and faith in God and now there are actually so many touting the gays and such defamation, the race nonsense and this fake virus vaccine tragedy that Dems, Gates, Soros, Fauci and more have purposefully BROUGHT TO AMERICA AND THE WORLD to reach their goals of One World Order of Communism!!!
