THE INSURRECTION DEFENSE COMMITTEE WILL NOW COME TO (DIS)ORDER
Quiverin’ Qevin has announced the expansion of his recently-formed Insurrection Defense Committee, er, I mean the Select Subcommittee on Weaponization of the Federal Government.
One can tell from the members he appointed so far just what the purpose of this disinforamation project is. If it’s going to be expanded, I’m sure we can expect Marjorie Traitor Goon and professional statutory rape enthusiast Lauren Boebert will make their appearances.
The Republicans named to the committee so far are:
Jim Jordan - the former assistant coach at Ohio State who turned a blind eye to the sexual abuse of the athletes he was responsible for.
Darryl Issa - who before he quit in 2018 and then came back in 2020, was prosecuted with his brother in San Jose in 1980 for allegedly faking the theft of Issa's Mercedes Benz sedan and selling it to a car dealer for $16,000, according to court records.
Thomas Massie - who compared vaccine mandates to the Holocaust
Chris Stewart - "I'm not as convinced as a lot of people are that man-made climate change is the threat they think it is." He wants to abolish the EPA.
Elise Stefanik - opportunistic striver who betrayed all her supporters of her politics of moderation by becoming a Trump Supporter in order to gain an office in the Republican caucus.
Mike Johnson - Deputy Whip for the 118th Congress; previously chairman of the Republican Study Committee, the second-nuttiest Republican group in the House after the Freedom Caucus.
Chip Roy - Texas crazy person who got his start working for crazier Texas politician Ted Cruz.
Kelly Armstrong - one of the “authors” of the Republican anti-January 6 Committee report that faulted Nacny Pelosi for not keeping Congress secure on January 6, major Big Lie supporter.
Greg Steube - one of the 147 Republicans who voted against certifying Biden as President on January 6, 2021, known for pulling out several guns as he took part in a debate on gun violence via Zoom.
Dan Bishop - sponsor of a headline-grabbing North Carolina "bathroom bill" that voided anti-discrimination protections for LGBT people.
Kat Cammack - voted against certifying Biden as President on January 6, citing the “legitimate questions raised” by the domestic terrorists who stormed the capitol that day. Also claimed Democrats were drinking on the House floor during the many votes for Speaker.
Harriet Hageman - former Wyoming moderate Republican who became a Trump Supporter to get support for a campaign to defeat Liz Cheney.
(An interesting note: I got all of the above information by googling the name of each of these people, followed by the term “Republican idiot”, which brought these items as the top results of the search. They really are “Republican idiots.”)
Sadly, Scott Perry, whose phone was seized by the FBI as part of its investigation of the fake elecdtors conspiracy and who has insisted he’s not too compromised to serve on the subcommittee, didn’t make the cut. Maybe with the expansion that Politico reports that McCarthy plans to introduce as a resolution to expand the number of subcommittee members and that Democrats will get a proportional increase in their representation on the subcommittee.
One would think that with a propagandistic name like the “Select Subcommittee on Weaponization of the Federal Government,” that Washington media outlets might see the scam for what it is, but one would be wrong, as the Washington Post and The Hill have already used that name in their reports. The DC Press Corpse will undoubtedly once again be 10 days late and $500 short, as usual.
All of the Republican members so far are actual insurrection supporters. Each of them was among the 147 Republican who voted not to certify Joe Biden’s election, and all are election deniers who support the Big Lie.
All of them are well known for making more appearances on Faux Snooze than on their congressional committees.
All of them will have access to highly sensitive information from across the U.S. government.
Jordan and his clown car style themselves as a new Church Committee, the 1975 investigation into the Cold War misdeeds of American intelligence organizations headed by Idaho Senator Frank Church. Church’s committee uncovered genuinely shocking abuses by agencies that had for too long escaped oversight during the early days of the struggle with the Soviet Union.
The Insurrexction Defense Committee, a better name for this circus, will not be looking to uncover abuses, but will portray any government actions it doesn’t like as abuses, especially the investigations into Trump. Consider this the Church Committee turned on its head, with members of Congress seeking to protect a lawless president by destroying agencies that stand between our democracy and his ambitions.
Quiverin’ Qevin McQarthy will be fine with all of it, just as long as he gets to wear the top hat and red tails while fantasizing he is in control of the clowns and wild animals, and not the other way around.
Now that Adam Schiff and Eric Swallwell have time on their hands, it might be interesting for Hakeem Jeffries to nominate Schiff as the Ranking Democratic member of the subcommittee, and Swallwell as a member. The two of them alone should be able to turn the clowns into the idiots they are on any televised sessions. But make certain all the other Democrats are equally heavyweights.
The Insurrection Defense Committee needs to be destroyed. In public.

Schiff and Swallwell would make mincemeat out of those insurrectionist rump kissers. The whole pathetic group’s collective brain is smaller than one of Schiff and Swallwell’s brain cells.
“Insurrection Defense Committee” is the appropriate name. The “weaponization of the government” took place a few years back. My gast was flabbered at how fast chump and cronies did just that. Goebbels would have proud; this shitshow should indeed reveal the clowns with flamethrowers as the destruction derby that they surely are. Hear that, our MSM. Do you have ears…
