CAPITOL INSURRECTION

I am among the majority who are concerned about the direction of our country. However, my main concern is not about the economy.
For those who are paying attention, the betrayal of our legacy by the former president is on full display. Some people are showing honesty and bravery by testifying about the coup attempt and false claims of voter fraud. Others, such as the North Dakota congressional delegation, are denying the truth.
Public figures should encourage fact-finding and sworn testimony instead of spreading disinformation with off-record, politically-biased, unsubstantiated opinions disguised as facts.

With so many elections predetermined before a ballot is cast, voters — particularly in the minority party — can feel effectively disenfranchised.
Among the half dozen people gathered at a garage near the Phoenix Park Hotel was Oath Keepers head Stewart Rhodes, who was indicted this year on charges of “seditious conspiracy” in the insurrection. Proud Boys Chairman Enrique Tarrio, who was not present at the riot, was also at the garage meeting but left Washington afterward.
