January 6th: Trump was “unAmerican” and “unPatriotic”…Cassidy Hutchinson

The House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, Capitol Hill insurrection reconvened Tuesday for a hastily scheduled hearing, featuring blockbuster testimony from Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson.

Hutchinson has cooperated extensively with the investigation, having sat for four closed-door depositions. She revealed how then-President Donald Trump and his inner circle were warned about the potential for violence on January 6, and how Trump wanted to join the throngs of his supporters at the US Capitol.

The testimony bolstered the narrative that the committee has been driving toward over the last few weeks: That Trump incited and supported the insurrection as part of a desperate power grab to steal a second term, and that many of his top advisers thought his schemes were illegal.

Plain and simple truths put an end to any thoughtful individual accepting Trump’s lies.

Once again, federal court explains to Mississippi religious bigotry doesn’t trump constitutional law

A federal judge has blocked a Mississippi law intended to allow people who object on religious grounds to same-sex marriage and believe gender is determined at birth to refuse wedding and other services to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves found…that the wide-ranging law adopted this spring unconstitutionally allowed “arbitrary discrimination” against the LGBT community, unmarried people and others who do not share such views…

By citing…religious grounds, the law would have allowed people to refuse to provide a wide range of services from baking a wedding cake for a same-sex couple to counseling and fertility services. It also permitted dress code and bathroom restrictions to be imposed on transgender people…

The Republican governor can be counted upon to waste even more taxpayer dollar$ on what he called “an aggressive appeal”. In bigot-speech, that means he is certain his best chance at winning more elections in Mississippi requires continuing the elevation of bigotry, hatred and religious foolishness to political gospel.
