Chairman Kassar’s weekly wrap up discusses the January 6 Select Committee’s first public hearing, soaring inflation, Boudin’s recall and our upcoming Summer Reception.

The Made for TV January 6 Select Committee’s First Public Hearing

The Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol aired its first public hearing on June 9, 2022. The Select Committee hired James Goldston (the former president of ABC News) to produce the six planned TV hearings and make them compelling to watch.  If last night’s broadcast was any indication, the Select Committee, comprised of nine members (7 Democrats, Rep. Bennie Thompson, MS, Chairman, Rep. Zoe Lofgren, CA, Rep. Elaine Luria, VA, Rep. Adam Schiff, CA, Rep. Pete Aguilar, CA, Rep. Stephanie Murphy, FL and Rep. Jamie Raskin, MD and 2 Republicans, Rep. Liz Cheney, WY, Co-Chair and Rep. Adam Kinzinger, IL.) will not change anyone’s mind about the events of January 6, 2021.  While the Select Committee is theoretically bi-partisan, every member has an agenda and is pushing their agenda rather than actually investigating every aspect and every questionable action by those who could/should have had enough security prior to Donald J. Trump’s remarks at Washington’s Ellipse where the former president spoke.  The Select Committee did not tantalize viewers to watch the rest of the hearing with new information or a smoking gun. And it is also important to remember that every agency in charge of the security at the Capitol could have prevented the fateful event, but we doubt that will be included in the final findings of the Select Committee.

Inflation Hits Another Record High.

To no one’s surprise, inflation soared 8.6%, the worst since December, 1981.  We did not need the latest CPI report to tell us.  Every trip to buy groceries or purchase gas hurts the consumer and effects every other aspect of our everyday lives.  There are even areas in the United States where police departments have used their allotted budget for gas and are unable to respond to emergencies.

Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo admitted Tuesday that the Biden administration is running out of options as it scrambles to bring down gas prices that have surged to record highs across the nation in recent weeks.  Supposedly President Biden is looking for anything possible to combat the costs; how about resuming the policies that gave us affordable gasoline and made us energy independent?  The Biden Administration is giving Americans “lip-service” about the cost of gasoline as this was his plan from his first day in office when he shut down the Keystone XL pipeline.

Good News from San Francisco

Voters from every political spectrum spoke loud and clear on Tuesday when they voted to recall DA Chesa Boudin – the son of Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, members of the Weather Underground and convicted murderers of Sgt. Edward Grady, Officer Waverly “Chipper” Brown, and Brinks guard Peter Paige, during the infamous Brinks Armored Robbery on October 20. 1981 in Nyack, NY.  Chesa was raised by leftist radicals, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohm, here in Hyde Park, New York.  Thankfully, the voters in San Francisco recalled him and his biased beliefs that he incorporated as the District Attorney.  It was actually comical that he blamed ‘right-wing billionaires and police officers’ for his loss when his election was supported by George Soros who is dedicated to electing leftist district attorneys.
