how can they?

How can Republicans oppose a 9/11 type of bi-partisan commission to look into the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6?

An attack was made on our country's lawmakers and the Republican Vice-President, our democracy and most of all, our Constitution. How can anyone not want to get the the bottom of that?

35 brave and patriotic Republicans voted in the House to look into what happened in the way we looked into 9/ll. But the Senate may not be so easy. In a filibuster vote, 10 Republican Senators would have to vote yes.

There may be a way around avoiding a filibuster, but why should we even have to consider that?

This is about our Constitutional Democracy and every Republican in the Congress took an oat to uphold that.

How can they oppose this in any way, shape or form?

Here's why.

They fear the power of the MAGA cult around the former President and his power to endorse opposition to them for their re-election.

Being re-elected is more important to them than their sacred oath, their country and the Constitution that upholds it.

Pray for them, beloved.

Lordy, Lordy, do they need prayer and Divine intervention rather than political notions.
