We Will NOT Forget!

Y’know … if someone breaks into my home or place of business, causes massive damage, and threatens my life, I am going to find that person or persons and they are going to pay a hefty price.  It’s that simple.  No, I’m not going to say, “Oh well, no harm done, it was just a normal day.”  No, I’m not going to say, “Oh well, what’s done is done and now I need to just move on with my life.”  No, I am going to say, “Let’s find the sons of bitches that did this and make sure they never see the light of day again except from behind steel bars, never have the opportunity to do this to somebody else again.”  For at the end of the day, criminals who are not captured, not punished, not even pursued, gain strength, gain momentum and confidence, and their next crime – make no mistake, there will be a next one – will be even more heinous than the last.

Yes, of course I am referring to the attacks on Congress and the Capitol on January 6th, attacks that were fully intended to overthrow our votes and what democratic foundations remain in our government.  Now, you may say that more than 500 people have been arrested in connection with the attack, but I would argue those people, for the most part, were pawns.  They were masses of largely uneducated, ignorant people who were looking for a fight, who had been riled into a feeding frenzy by others in positions of power.  Yes, they should pay for their crimes, for their participation with both prison time and fines, but the people I want to see arrested and made to pay most are those who had any role, no matter how small, in masterminding the plot.

Thus far, even before the House investigation has begun, before the FBI or Department of Justice have completed their investigation, we know of certain key people who were involved, including Rudy Giuliani, Michael Flynn, Don Junior, Ali Alexander and others who met on January 5th at the Willard Hotel in D.C. to coordinate and work out the final details.  Why are they walking around free?  Lock ‘em up!!!

The Republicans would like this to just go away, would like to sweep it under their proverbial very dirty carpet, but we will not forget!  We will not let the “American” public forget!  You may get sick and tired of reading about this on Filosofa’s Word, and for that I apologize, but this is too important not to keep up the momentum, to keep it fresh in the minds of the people of this country all the way up through November 8th, 2022 – the date of the mid-term elections when members of Congress, some of whom are guilty of having a role in plotting or encouraging the insurrection, will be seeking votes in the mid-term elections. The media must also do its job and keep the pressure up on those investigating, must keep the events of that day fresh in the minds of the public.

Josh Hawley, representative from the “show-me” state of Missouri;  Lauren Boebert, representative from the state of Colorado; Margie Greene, representative from Georgia; Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Leader from the state of California; Paul Gosar, representative from the state of Arizona;  Louie Gohmert, representative from the state of Texas – all these people must surely be under investigation for their roles, no matter how seemingly insignificant, in the attempted overthrow of the 2020 election and by extension, our very foundation.

How can we simply forget about what happened and what might have been had it not been for the poor planning of the fools who stormed the Capitol, and the actions of the Capitol Police and others?  How can we simply shrug our shoulders and move on?  If somebody attempted to murder your daughter, would you forget about it?  No, and neither can we forget that many ‘somebodies’ tried to murder our nation.   No, this is not an exaggeration … had the insurgents accomplished what they set out to do, President Biden would not likely be sitting in the Oval Office today, certain key legislators would likely be dead, and this nation would likely be under strict martial law.

So no, Kevin McCarthy, Mitch McConnell … we will not forget!  We will not sit down and shut up!  We the People demand answers!  We demand that we receive a full briefing of every single person who had any involvement at any level!  As we said after 9/11:  We Will NOT Forget!

    • If we forget, then next time the insurrectionists will succeed and we will go from a Democratic republic to a Banana republic overnight. I’m not celebrating this holiday, for I don’t see much good about this country to celebrate right now, but I shall enjoy a leisurely Sunday! xx

  1. Nor should you forget it, but more importantly nor should the forces of law and order in your nation if they are to regain any respect from the public. Every lead must be pursued and if it lead to the doors of some lawmakers then they must be charged as insurrectionists plotting the overthrow of the legitimate Government. That they went out of their way to lie to the public and incited them to murder lawmakers must not be forgotten.

    • Exactly! This must remain a top priority issue for not only Congress, but the press and the people. Otherwise, when the results are tallied in 2024 and Biden or Harris is declared the winner, they will find a way to overturn it, having learned from what they did wrong this time ’round. There are so many facets to the corruption among Republicans … we must remember, we must act to ensure this NEVER happens again, else all bets are off.

    • Thank you so much for the re-blog, Ned! This is such a critical issue, for if we allow it to be swept under the rug, it WILL happen again. It’s not a matter of “if”, but “when”.

  3. Jill, what the people you mentioned and others in the Republican party leadership are being malfeasant in not only doing nothing to address the insurrection, but are shameful in trying to white wash what happened. We cannot have one branch of government play a major role in the insurrection of another branch. And, most of the heavy lifting by the former president began well before January 6, even before the election. I am not prescient, but it was painfully obvious the former president planned to contend the election months before it occurred. His planned election fraud claims were staged and unprovable even with the 1,000 attorneys he hired months before. That is why his pitiful track record in the courts should be telling on this winning one small case while losing over 60. Funders want there money back as they feel they were lied to. There are 500 people who have been arrested because they were lied to. The operative term is “lied to.” They were lied to because as the former president’s niece said “her uncle will burn it all down to avoid losing.” That includes the reputation of everyone involved.

    • Oh yes, how well I remember that as his poll numbers dropped, he began paving the way for claims of fraud. He did the same in 2016, if you remember … said that if he lost, it would be because of voter fraud. Then he won, and you didn’t hear any more about voter fraud … until 2020. I expected him to protest his loss, to claim there was voter fraud, but even I, the ultimate cynic, did not predict just how far he would go to overturn the vote. And never in my wildest nightmares could I have imagined how many of our elected officials in Congress would back his big lie, to the detriment of our democratic underpinnings, our rights as citizens. Some in Congress have shredded their Oath of Office and we MUST either oust them and hold them accountable for their malfeasance, else this will be the way of the future for the United States.

      • Jill, the oaths have been shredded. It looks like rather than participate in the insurrection fact finding committee, House Minority Kevin McCarthy is going to attempt to make a mockery of it and put the more extreme loyalists to the former president on the body. The goal of theirs I read is to lay the blame on Speaker Nancy Pelosi for the insurrection. This disgusts me and if people agree, they need to call McCarthy and tell him so. Keith
