I reported yesterday on Beto O’Rourke’s “Big Lie” about the Capitol Riots, and reasons why the supposed spontaneous attack on January 6, that was allegedly perpetrated by Trump supporters, is being revealed as a pre-planned act that Congress had advanced knowledge about.
Two days ago, I wrote about one of the agitators who not only helped facilitate the unrest, but was hired by major media outlets to film it.
My colleague Nick Arama also wrote about the House Republican Administration committee demanding answers from Speaker Nancy Pelosi about why, when Trump authorized the National Guard to be in force on January 6, that they were not called up until after the unrest happened:
As we reported, one of the reasons that Democrats likely backed out of having witnesses during the impeachment trial despite the fact that they won a vote to do so was because of the threat that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) might be called and asked what did she know when and why she didn’t request the National Guard to help out at the Capitol beforehand.
The facts are that President Donald Trump had ordered the Guard to be available if Pelosi and/or Mayor Muriel Bowser requested it. But as we noted, they didn’t do so, until the action at the Capitol was well underway on Jan. 6.
According to Fox, Republicans including House Administration Committee Ranking Member Rodney Davis, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer and House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes want to know why and are demanding answers from Pelosi.
Trump authorized the National Guard on Jan. 3 for Jan. 5-6, if it was requested. The Chief of the Capitol Police at the Time said that he asked the sergeants at arms to request the assistance of the National Guard. Sund said the former Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving said he was concerned about “the optics” and didn’t feel the “intelligence supported it.” Paul Irving who since resigned answers to Pelosi.
Instead of making herself accountable (what a concept), Pelosi has decided to contract an outright, racist, left-wing partisan to oversee a review into the Capitol unrest.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tapped retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, commander of Joint Task Force Katrina, to lead an immediate review of the US Capitol riot.
In her weekly press conference Friday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the retired US Army general who led federal relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina would investigate how hundreds of President Trump supporters were able to overpower Capitol Police as the fallout in the wake of the siege continues.
If you haven’t noticed, I cannot stand people who accomplish something big, and instead of maybe accomplishing something greater at the most, or going gently into that good night and learning to fly fish at the least, instead ride the wave, and dine out on that one accomplishment for decades.
Lt. General Russel Honoré is one of those people. He was head of the Joint Task Force for Hurricane Katrina 16 years ago. What has he done since, and what does he do now?
Since his retirement from the Army in 2008, Gen. Honoré has branded himself as a,
global authority on leadership and emergency preparedness, Gen. Honoré now shares his no-nonsense approach to getting the job done by showing organizations how to successfully lead and execute a mission.
So, cast yourself as an expert on leadership, then on top of your already substantial military pension, grift money speaking about your inflammatory, racist, and anti-freedom views.
If the good General is such an expert on leadership and emergency preparedness, why didn’t Pelosi contract him before January 6 to serve the piss-poor leadership of Congress and the Capitol Police?
But, I digress….
The first thing Gen. Honoré does before even getting his feet wet in the “review” is to throw the Capitol Police under the bus:
Retired Army Lt. Gen. Russel L. Honoré, whom House Speaker Nancy Pelosi named to head a security review of the U.S. Capitol, has stated that he believes the U.S. Capitol Police and the House and Senate sergeants at arms were “complicit” in the deadly Jan. 6 riot.
Gen. Honoré has said in television and radio interviews that the invasion was an inside job, that the Capitol Police force is “40% Trumpsters” and “gave way” to the protesters.
“They had help inside that force,” he told digital show host Roland Martin.
Interesting how his first duty in this new role is to continue to embed the Big Lie with the help of a complicit media. What Honoré and Congressional Democrats are doing is essentially pissing on Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick’s grave. All the nonsense of using Sicknick’s death, and giving the Congressional Gold Medal to Officer Eugene Goodman was just cover for what was to come.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tweeted out a video which features points from Tucker Carlson’s blistering exposé on Wednesday showing just how unhinged the good General is. The video also includes clips from Gen. Honoré’s interview on Roland Martin Unfiltered laying out what his views and goals for this review will entail.

Gen. Honoré is cut from the same cloth as Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin: you are proven racist because you have a certain skin color and hold certain political beliefs, and our job is to root you out and eliminate you from the military and/or law enforcement, as well as polite society.
What he said to Roland Martin pretty much confirms this:
“So they allowed their buddies in yesterday. They had help inside the force, and you can assume that 30 percent of that force support the guy in the White House, that’s just demographics.”
“As hard as we try as an institution in the military, among us are people who think the election was stolen.”
Ahhh… so this is the problem. Not aligning with the preferred narrative and groupthink makes you dangerous. How Orwellian of you, good General.
But wait, there’s more.
“What they really are P.O.’d about, they are worried that they will lose their white power. They don’t like the browning of America. It took the sheet off a bunch of people proclaiming themselves to be conservative. And what they are is racists.”
Watch the Tucker Carlson exposé on Pelosi’s intent in hiring this POS for the so-called Capitol Riots review, and why this is a horrific idea. Then, call your Congress person and let them know this man needs to go.
