January 6 Plus One Year

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 5, 2022

        TOMORROW IS THE DAY THE HOUSE COMMITTEE INVESTIGATING LAST YEAR’S RIOT AT THE U.S.

CAPITOL WILL RELEASE ITS REPORT. AND FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL ALSO HOLD A NEWS

CONFERENCE IN WHICH HE IS EXPECTED TO SAY WHAT HE HAS BEEN SAYING FOR THE PAST YEAR – THAT

THE ELECTION WAS STOLEN, THAT THE PROTESTORS WERE MOSTLY PEACEFUL, AND THAT THOSE WHO

ENGAGED IN VIOLENCE CANNOT BE LINKED TO HIM.

        PARTISANS ON BOTH SIDES WILL BELIEVE WHAT THEY WANT TO BELIEVE, BUT THE FACTS DO NOT

SUPPORT TRUMP’S POSITION. AS THE WALL STREET JOURNAL NOTES ONLY 475 VOTES IN EVERY STATE IN

WHICH TRUMP CLAIMED FRAUD WERE SUSPECT. THAT’S NOT ENOUGH TO HAVE CHANGED THE OUTCOME.

WAS SILICON VALLEY MONEY POURED INTO THESE STATES AND DID IT HAVE AN EFFECT? PROBABLY, BUT

UNFORTUNATELY MOST OUTSIDE MONEY IS NOT ILLEGAL. A CASE SHOULD BE MADE THAT OUTSIDE MONEY

OUGHT TO BE BANNED, BUT THAT IS SOMETHING CONGRESS WOULD HAVE TO DO, OR POSSIBLY STATE

LEGISLATURES AND SINCE POLITICIANS BENEFIT FROM OUTSIDE MONEY THAT IS NOT LIKELY TO HAPPEN.

        I DON’T LOOK FOR THE DIVISIONS TO BE HEALED ANYTIME SOON, ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE ARE

PEOPLE WHO BENEFIT FROM KEEPING US DIVIDED. FOR TOO MANY, POLITICS HAS BECOME AN IDOL AND A

FALSE GOD. I’M CAL THOMAS

    I beg to differ on what a majority of us out here in the hinterlands believe was a (more than one even) Stolen Election for the Communist/Socialists from BOTH Parties, See: https://www.trevorloudon.com/2022/01/deductive-reasoning-the-gop-was-in-on-the-steal/

      No evidence including that presented to Trump judges. Focus on 2022 races. Those can be won
