Pelosi Reveals Bill to Create Democratic-Controlled Committee to Investigate Jan 6 Capitol Riot

Nancy Pelosi

On Monday House Speaker Nancy Pelosi revealed a bill to create a Democratic-controlled select House committee to investigate the January 6 Capitol riots. “January 6th was one of the darkest days in our nation’s history. It is imperative that we establish the truth of that day and ensure such an attack cannot again happen” said Pelosi in Monday’s statement.

“Sadly, as of last week, there remains no prospect for additional votes from Republican Senators to create the National Commission to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol Complex” added Pelosi.

“The Select Committee will investigate and report upon the facts and causes of the attack and report recommendations for preventing any future assault” stated Pelosi. The bill allows for Pelosi to appoint 13 members, with five of those being appointed after “consultation” with Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

The bill would give authorization to the committee chair to issue subpoenas and order dispositions without input from the Republican minority. And members of the committee will be tasked with finding the “facts, circumstances, and causes relating to January 6, 2021, domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex.”

Included in the reported findings will be “facts and causes relating to the preparedness and response of the United States Capitol Police and other Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies in the National Capital Region and other instrumentalities of government, as well as the influencing factors that fomented such an attack on American representative democracy while engaged in a constitutional process” states the bill’s text.

    Nancy sit down and please be quiet. This another wasteful spending, that we the people and our children and there’s will have to pay. The cost of everything is going up and taxes and fuel Your agenda is pointless and I really don’t know what happened to the democratic parties as a kid growing up I remember them being for the working people but now they only care about destroying this country. Maybe it’s time for a few of y’all to retire and think we all know who you are

    Pelosi wants the “facts, circumstances, and causes relating to January 6, 2021.” It’s very simple, it was to protest the Democrat party insurrection. An insurrection by Democrats that led to overthrowing the government. A government that no longer exists by the people and for the people. Instead it is a government for career politicians and bureaucrats.

Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill Of Rights’

Published

on

On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” to “protect and codify the rights of transgender and nonbinary people under the law and ensure their access to medical care, shelter, safety, and economic security.”

Led by Democrat Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA), David Cicilline (RI), Marie Newman (IL), Mark Takano (CA), and Ritchie Torres (NY), HR 1209 proposes “amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics in public accommodations and federally funded programs and activities.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted, and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” said Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force.

“Our Trans Bill of Rights says clearly to the trans community across the country that we see you and we will stand with you to ensure you are protected and given the dignity and respect that every person should have,” Jayapal added.

The bill seeks to increase the ability of children to get permanent and life changing surgeries by “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The bill will additionally ensure that biological male students are allowed to compete in girls’ sports by amending federal “education laws to ensure that they protect students from discrimination based on sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics, and guarantee students’ right to participate in sports on teams that best align with their gender identity.”

Federal education laws will also be amended to allow students to :use school facilities that best align with their gender identity,” meaning that biological males would be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The bill expands beyond “transgender rights” to also ban states from making laws restricting abortion by “codifying the right to abortion.”
