A full year after the 1/6 riot at the Capitol, the total number of indictments from the Biden DOJ for insurrection, sedition or treason is the same number as Americans indicted by Mueller for criminally conspiring with Russia over the 2016 election:

This is what makes the 1/6 Congressional Committee such an abuse of power, likely unconstitutional:

There's no pretense they're investigating US citizens to aid in the lawmaking function. It's to supplement the DOJ criminal investigation because they're unhappy with the results.
Congress has no power to investigate the political activities and associations of US citizens in order to run a parallel criminal probe. The Supreme Court chided Congress twice for that during the McCarthy era. The 1/6 Committee itself is undemocratic:

To be clear: I've made my views on the TikTok ban clear. You can hear them below, That the debate is fueling anti-Asian violence is not my argument. It's CNN's.

But the push to ban TikTok came from Biden and is supported by the key Senate Dems.

Yes, this is the critical point, one I really hope people consider even if they favor the TikTok ban.

The key lesson of 9/11 was we allowed the USG to seize excessive powers in the name of fighting Al Qaeda. The proposed bill extends far beyond TikTok:

LOL. Democrats have spent a decade accusing conservatives and anyone else who wants greater immigration enforcement of being monstrous racists. The AOC-in-White-Weeping fotos, etc.

Now Biden is campaigning on the ground he is the defender of greater funds for border enforcement.
Obama deported more immigrants than any president in history - including Trump.

Is there any limit on the willingness of Dems and liberals to be so blatantly lied to and manipulated like this over and over?

*Note the absence of recent AOC border trips.

A reminder of when Democrats used to pretend to care about suffering at the border, "kids in cages," etc.

All of this is still happening. The only difference is there's now no political advantage from pretending to care and shed crocodile tears on TV:

MSNBC today claimed - with a panel of non-Jews - that it's not only false but *anti-Semitic* to point out Soros funds were used to promote Bragg.

It's a disgusting exploitation of that term. Liberals constantly pointed out who Sheldon Adelson funded, and they had every right to:
The liberal-left always complained about how Sheldon Adelson funded GOP politics, influencing it to be more pro-Israel. That was true, just as it's true that AIPAC - like NRA, NARAL, etc. - are well-funded and powerful.

You can't use that critique, then place Soros off limits.
Soros has every right to spend his billions from currency "betting" and the like to donate massive amounts to political causes, as he does.

Exploiting "anti-Semitism" accusations to try to render off-limits any discussion of that influence is repellent, trivializing the term.

The phrase "free speech" -- and, increasingly, the values it represents -- absolutely now codes as a right-wing marker in US politics.

At every relevant Congressional hearing I watched over the last 3 years, Dems explicitly defended various regimes of censorship.
Under Trump, when Dems controlled Congress, they repeatedly summoned tech CEOs and threatened them with reprisals if they don't censor more.

At the #TwitterFiles hearings, virtually every Dem --explicitly - defended Big Tech's collaboration with CIA/FBI:

In the Cold War, the US Security State went around implanting right-wing regimes in the name of stopping the USSR, so the left hated it.

Now CIA's ideology is neoliberalism. John Kirby said LBTG is a key prong of US foreign policy. CIA hated Trump. Thus:

The main wish inserted each morning into the prayers of every CNN and MSNBC host, and every NYT and WPost shareholder, is that Trump remain as prominent as possible.

Having him as the GOP nominee, then President again, is the jackpot. He saved their jobs and then made them rich:
Listen to @megynkelly on the absolutely vital role that @JoeNBC and @morningmika -- along with all other liberal cable hosts -- played in helping Trump win the GOP nomination. Their motives were highly self-interested and thus will repeat:

Obviously these people did everything possible to sabotage Trump while in office and then prayed he lost. That's all part of the drama. The point is they can't afford to have him go away.

Look every day at the headlines of these sites and shows. It's all Trump.

The small problem with what @RepAuchincloss is saying here - China wants a system based on force, while the US wants one based on rules and democracy, and needs Brazil and other Global South countries to join - is that nobody outside a CNN studio believes this about the US:
The "emerging Global South countries" @RepAuchincloss names as ones that must join the US against China - given the US believes only in universal rules and democracy - is that (like Ukraine) most have had their democracies toppled by the US and thus view this claim as a joke.🤷‍♂️
I know that in the op-pages of the NYT and the Green Rooms of network and cable shows, the US is regarded all over the world as a beacon of democracy and "rules-based international order," but we have to confront the actual reality in the world:
