    The FBI action authorized by a Federal Magistrate requested by the DOJ was no a political matter. The FBI Director is a Republican appointed by Donald Trump, the AG Merrick Garland is a respected prosecutor. A politically sensitive action such as the raid on one of Trump’s residences would have required insurmountable evidence of a crime and that stolen sensitive documents were indeed in the residence. No way they decision was made without a great deal of discussion. One must assume that all involved knew with absolute certainty that what they were looking for would be found in the former President’s residence. In all probability the information was provided to the DOJ by an insider, probably a family member or a close confident of Trump.
    Like you and I, a former President as well as a sitting President is not exempt from our laws.
    In a matter of time what was found and the reasons for the raid will become known. Stand back and stand by as the revelations will be wild.

    I donate anonymously.
    It upsets me when I see the names of donors in larger lettering than the name of the institution. There’s one yeshiva in Far Rockaway that I don’t see a name for, only the donors names. I still don’t know which yeshiva it is.

    Lakewhut, I frequently see references like yours to Marxism, a philosophy of which I have little understanding. Perhaps you can explain in detail exactly what Marxism is and what today is Marxist.

    Aside from the online pleas, I get numerous phone and mail solicitations from tzedakas that are unfamiliar. I limit my contributions to a handful of recognized organizations such as Ezras Torah, established yeshivot and orthodox advocacy organizations.
    Too many organizations pay high salaries and duplicate the work of others, aside from the outright fraudulent ones.

    In February 2021 a 6 foot golden statue of Trump was revealed at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. There are photos of people bowing down to it and kissing it. He was idolized by some after his election defeat and some even equate him with that Jewish man worshipped by followers of a major Western religion.

    I would very much like to hear testimony under oath from Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Mark Meadows, Roger Stone, Rudy Guiliani, and the Secret Service agents. Their testimony is necessary to give Americans a complete understanding of the last days of the Trump administration.

    Even if construction of the Keystone pipeline was allowed to continue it wouldn’t effect today’s gas price as it would not be functioning yet.
    Oil companies set the prices for gas and they have had record profits. They could cut the price by 10% and still be profitable.

    Not surprised that 2 who commented assume that the young woman is in Brooklyn or elsewhere in the Metro NY area. There are Jews both assimilated and frum all over the USA. If she’s not in the Metro area OORAH AND NCSY are the most likely to assist her on the road to a frum life.

    in reply to: BLM RIOTS VS. JAN. 6 PROTEST #2096758
    yaakov doe
    Participant

    Very few of those riots involved Federal crimes as the attack on the Capitol was so policing and charges were up to the local authorities. January 6th was clearly an attempt to interfere with government proceedings, not exactly a riot. There is no reason Congress can not have separate hearings on the riots at another time.

    From what I’ve seen in the videos it wasn’t a small group of agitators trespassing but a horde of over 1000 people breaking into the Capital beating police officers, vandalizing offices, defecating and urinating in the halls while looking to harm Mike Pence and Nancy Pelosi. Evidence revealed last week shows that there was a planned and coordinated attack by several hundred members of the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers with weapons, bear spray and zip ties. The only question remaining is who planned the attack and for what purpose.

    Pelosi’s husband, Paul has a court date of August 3rd on his DUI charge. He hasn’t gotten away with anything as of today.

    The committee is gathering evidence. Many who went to the Capital were like lemmings not conspirators, and there were the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers. If people have actual evidence that refutes the committee’s evidence I’m sure it will find it’s way in the media. Actual evidence not supposition upon supposition upon supposition as in the 2000 Mules video.
    This is more akin to the Warren commission than a political convention. I would expect we ill learn facts that haven’t yet come out. Watch or listen tonight. Even Newsmax is carrying it.

    I want to hear the witnesses including the ones whose testimony was taken earlier and recorded before I come to any conclusion about who bears responsibility for the events of January 6th. I want to know who brought the gallows and who originated the idea of hanging the Vice President of the United States. I’d also like to know who planted the bombs the evening prior to the assault. I would also like to know why a Congressman from Alabama thought it necessary to wear body armor when addressing the assemblage. There is also the unanswered question of why members of the Proud Boys stocked weapons in a motel outside of DC awaiting word on when to enter DC armed.

    I find it hard to believe that Trump planned on marching to the Capital and that he was watching the rioting on TV that afternoon refusing to act. So many unanswered questions that may be answered by witnesses, texts and recordings.
    I’m rescheduling my Thursday night learning to listen to the hearing on radio in order to be an informed American.

    Why not watch if you have a TV or listen on WCBS News Radio to hear what witnesses have to say before making a judgement?
    If Fox were an actual news network they would also broadcast the hearings as they are newsworthy as the Watergate hearings were.

    Trained cops who have obligatory practice at shooting ranges frequently miss the perp they are trying to take down and all too often hit bystanders. In a crowded shul there is bound to be collateral damage if the gabbai opens fire.
