Last Thursday was the one year anniversary of the January 6th siege on the Capitol. This low key and respectful event was attended by President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. Then one by one the congressional members shared their emotional memories of the attack on the Capitol. The day was ended with a prayer vigil on the steps of the Capitol Building.
The strangest thing about this ceremonial gathering was that it was attended by only two republicans. They were Liz Cheney, the U.S. representative from Arizona, and her father, Dick Cheney, who served as vice president for George W. Bush. Representative Adam Kinzinger claimed that he was there in spirit sending the message “Wish I could be there too, but I’m on baby watch.” As to why ALL the Republicans bailed, it is not clear. It is possible that they were ordered not to show up or they were uncomfortable representing the political party that had spread the BIG LIE regarding the fair and legal winner of the 2020 Presidential election.
Even Donald Trump, who is being viewed more and more as the instigator of the attack, did not fulfill his commitment to speak out for the hordes of attackers on this commemorative day. He stated “In light of the total bias and dishonesty of the January 6th Unselect Committee of Democrats, two failed Republicans, and the Fake News Media, I am canceling the January 6th Press Conference at Mar-a-Lago.” He indicated that he was saving his all important remarks for an upcoming Trump rally in Arizona, which turned out to be poorly attended.
It’s been a year now and where’s the justice? The Associated Press reports that the committee has “… interviewed more than 300 witnesses, collected tens of thousands of documents and traveled around the country to talk with election officials who were pressured by Donald Trump.” The plan is to present televised hearings and publish a series of reports. These investigations are not criminal prosecutions and lawmakers cannot dole out punishments, so it is up to the judicial arm of the government to follow through on any serious crimes that may be uncovered.
UPDATE – The first hearing of the 1/6 Committee met on Thursday, June 9, 2022. This matter was the covered in – This is Just the Beginning! And earlier with Pelosi Seeks the Truth.

This time around we are examining the planetary dynamics of The January 6th Committee. A good balance as far as race and gender plus the regions of our great country is noted. There are only nine individuals making it impossible to have all twelve of the zodiac signs represented, but the three modalities – Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable -are well distributed. There is a predominance in the MUTABLE mode, giving the ability to organize and communicate flexibly. A smaller predominance in the FIRE element provides the spirit to keep up the effort. And it is interesting that all seven Day Rays are in the mix. The overall judgement is that this is a well-integrated group with intentions of getting to the bottom of things and hopefully they do just that.

The objection could be made that there are only two Republicans on the panel. This situation was created when House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy nominated five members of his party: Jim Banks, Rodney Davis, Jim Jordan, Kelly Armstrong, and Troy Nehls to the select committee. House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi rejected two of the names because they were to be called as witnesses. McCarthy threatened to pull ALL his nominations if ALL were not accepted. Pelosi refused to back down so the Republicans childishly took their marbles and went home.

The five Republican nominations for the 1/6 committee
who were chosen but then retracted as a protest.
Three of these five nominations were born on Monday which would have added a very strong emotional element to the mix. The mode of this group was largely cardinal, which in this case means directive. Here’s another interesting note: all of McCarthy’s nominations were male, illustrating how out of step the Republican Party in Washington, D.C. happens to be.
