Contempt For Dramedy
>
>
> Contempt is a two-way street.
> You can be held in contempt while, simultaneously, hold your accuser in contempt.
> Tu Quoque.
>
> “Contempt Of Congress” should be the title of a new play (Or, “Just One Day in January”).
> In the parlance of Broadway’s Illuminati, it’s a “Dramedy”, equal parts drama and comedy, staged in the Capitol and starring the January 6 Commission and all those they’ve targeted to testify.
>
> The plot line goes like this:
> (1) Subpoena’s will be issued by the Committee ordering subjects to testify,
> (2) Subjects will defy the subpoenas,
> (3) Committee, at the outset, will have the opportunity to accept this entire spectacle as just that—a spectacle—as they ponder which of three contempt powers to invoke,
> (4) As usual, they will select the most cumbersome, time-consuming, drama-filled, dead-end option—the 1857 Criminal Contempt of Congress choice,
> (5) The committee then rules the subjects are in criminal contempt of Congress and start the ball rolling down a busy, angst-filled street populated by the full House, a US Attorney, a Grand Jury and the DOJ,
> (6) Subjects will be thrilled, even gleeful,
> (7) Victimization grievances, chants, threats and demonstrations erupt in support of subjects,
> (8) Republican officials, by and large, use their silence in support of subjects,
> (9) Lawsuits fly while subjects become the beneficiaries of millions of dollars purposely donated to help subjects combat “deep state Totalitarianism” — (Yes, they love to transfer their worst, most transparent fault onto their opposition),
> (10) Subjects deny all charges and are awarded bail—a get out of jail card,
> (11) Dramedy continues,
> (12) More Dramedy,
> (13) Months pass and subjects end up not testifying,
> 14) America is more divided than ever and lethal exchanges between the two opposing sides are highly probable.
>
> This is when my contempt of Congress is overwhelming.
>
> They have another, more immediate and potentially more effective contempt option — their Inherent Contempt Power — that empowers them to hold “Contemners” in the Capitol basement jail, but they chose to ignore it in favor of Dramedy.
>
> At a time when billions of dollars can be made from a nano second advantage for money market insiders, it takes light years, in comparison, for majority Democrats to respond to the January 6th insurrection in search of its organizing forces. What else is new?
>
> If you ever encounter a street named “Contempt”, avoid it.
> It’s a dead-end street.
