Truth be known, commissions are little more than public relations vehicles.  That’s right.  The Warren Commission that investigated the assassination of President Kennedy produced no new evidence.  The purpose was to allay fears that the killing was part of some much larger conspiracy.  Was Vice President Johnson involved?  Was it the Russians?  Was it Fidel Castro?  Or was it Sam Giancana because JFK was screwing the mobster’s girlfriend?  Since all those conspiracy theories are still circulating, the Commission did not even succeed in its public relations goal.

Some commissions are created to cover the posterior of the politicians.  There was the Kerner Commission – headed by Illinois Governor Otto Kerner – appointed to look into the racial rioting in Chicago.  It was intended to make Blacks believe that Mayor Richard J. Daley cared.  It achieved nothing – and the Daley Democrat Machine remained as racist as ever. 

Even when a commission has a very specific purpose, they still can be a waste of time and money.  Ten years after the death of President Roosevelt, Congress established a commission in 1955 “for the purpose of considering and formulating plans for the design, construction and location of a permanent memorial … “ honoring the 32nd President on the National Mall.  It took 42 years for the commission to complete its rather simple task.

When proposing a commission to “look into” the January 6th riot on Capital Hill, the proponents of the legislation point to the 9/11 Commission created after the terrorist attacks on the United States.  That event was investigated by Congress, the FBI, the CIA, media outlets and others. 

The 9/11 Commission relied on all those agencies for information.  It produced no new, unique information.  In fact, with so many basic questions still unanswered, the 9/11 Commission failed to even enhance public knowledge.

Sometimes commissions are commissioned to throw someone under the bus.  If there was anything noteworthy about the 9/11 Commission Report, it was their conclusion that the attack might have been prevented if the FBI and CIA had been more diligent.  That hindsight scapegoating conclusion has since been largely discredited.  The FBI and CIA refused to stay under the bus.

So, now we have the clamor for yet another commission to get to the bottom of the Capitol Hill riot.  The Democrats call for a commission is understandable and disingenuous.  They love commissions to do their p public relations work. 

To justify a commission, Democrats grossly exaggerate what happened on January 6th.  It was bad, for sure.  And everyone – Democrats and Republicans – have condemned the riots and called for them to be brought to justice.  But it was NOT an insurrection any more or less than the continuing riots in Portland and the autonomous zones in Seattle are insurrections.  In fact, they are much closer to the legal definition of an insurrection than the January 6th riot.  But do not try to convince Democrats of that bit of truth.

The problem with a Capitol Hill Commission is that it will be political – because they always are.  Any time you hear a politician say something is not political, you can rest assured he or she is lying.  It is impossible to assemble a group of people to investigate a political issue and not have their political biases play a role. 

And if they use the word “insurrection” in the name of the committee or what it is investigating, you know that it will be politically motivated from beginning to the issuing of their politicized and valueless report.  If there were even remotely unbiased, they would first investigate whether it was a riot or an insurrection.  But the left will not allow that.  They view their opinion as gospel truth.

There is no constructive or utilitarian need for a commission.  All the investigations we need are going on already.  So, let’s be real.  Democrats see such a  commission as a vehicle to produce ongoing anti-Republican campaign fodder leading up to the 2022 election.  That is their public relations purpose.  Republicans see it the same way and obviously do not like the purpose.  They see how it is already playing into the Democrat dominated media partisan narratives.

Therefore, The Democrat-controlled House votes to create the commission – with the pitiful help of 35 Republicans.  While Democrats technically control the Senate, the supermajority requirement will likely end the debate.  No commission.  And that should not cause ANY citizen any distress.

Once again, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has proven himself to be a nincompoop in terms of strategy.  He never should have appointed New York Congressman John Katko to be the GOP negotiator.  If you do not believe that such a commission should be created, why would you enter into negotiations?

The proposed commission is nothing more than another political shuttlecock to be whacked back and forth over the partisan political divide.

So, there ‘tis.

  1. This is gas lighting. A big difference between Oregon and people storming the Capital and yelling “Hang Mike Pence” with a giant noose outside of the Capital building. People can see this footage with their own eyes and now you are saying that nothing serious happened.

  2. Warren Commission found the truth about JFK’s assassination and swept it under the rug !!!
    As far as commissions are concerned, I agree with you, a waste of time and money and the people on the commissions really do nothing to solve anything !!!

  3. this is one commission that i hope gets started in the right direction-
    as we are seeing proof every day that among other things –it really started off quietly
    and the first and second wave of protestors were ushered in to the capitol building by the guards-and until a member of blm/antifa-a man named sullivan -it was not a riot-but he saw to it that it surely turned mean and unruly with the help of his friends dressed up as trump supporters-and he exhorted them onward to do malice and mayhem-
    and the line of evil leads right back to pelosi and the democrats-
    cmon nancy fess up

  4. can’t wait to see this play out-a fake riot -blamed on trump supporters –
    and aimed to make trump culpable-
    but the proof of evidence showing more each day that it all was orchestrated
    by antifa/blm-dressed as maga members-but exhorted on by a blm leader being paid by cnn and nbc to create pics of terror and mayhem and all put in motion a week or 2 in advance-
    if sullivan flips and implicates cnn and nbc as knowing in advance and paying him to create the photos -it would behoove the DOJ to take cnn and nbc down on charges of treason or sedition -and of course since blm and antifa are arms of the democrats -they should take a well deserved butt kicking
