TWILIGHT ZONE: The Guilty Investigate the Innocent Who Ask Questions
Let’s face it folks, we’ve entered the Twilight Zone.
If you’re a Twilight Zone fan as I am, then you may recall the episode titled, “A Stop At Willoughby”. It’s one of my favorite episodes – in fact, I may watch it after I finish writing this.
IMDB say the following about the storyline of the episode:
Ad agency executive Gart Williams has had a particularly rough day – his young protégé has left to work at another agency and took a $3-million account him. He falls asleep on the train home and wakes up in another place and another time. It’s July 1888 and he’s in the village of Willoughby, a peaceful town where life is easy. He comes to back in his own time but as the pressures of works and his home life continue to mount, he decides Willoughby is exactly where he would like to spend the rest of his days.
That’s what I feel like we’re experiencing, except we’ve fallen asleep and awakened in the anti-Willoughby. Willoughby is more of what America used to be like.
But I do feel like we’ve fallen asleep and have woken up somewhere completely different. We’re now living in a time where the people who did wrong are investigating themselves in order to find no faults that they have committed and instead investigate those who challenge them.
*Enters Nancy Pelosi*
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) suggested during an interview Monday that a select committee tasked with investigating the Capitol riot is investigating Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Jim Banks (R-IN).
Both representatives have publicly criticized Pelosi for rejecting them from serving on the committee and questioned the House speaker’s alleged role in the security lapse on January 6.
Speaking to The 19th News, Pelosi called Jordan and Banks “clowns,” “outrageous,” and “not serious” and accused them of perpetuating the so-called “Big Lie,” though she did not offer examples aside from the Republicans objecting to the Electoral College vote certification, which Democrats have also done in the past.
“We’ll see what the committee finds out about them,” Pelosi told The 19th News, referring to the Republicans.
Rep. Jordan said,
“The real question is, and I’ve said this many times, why weren’t those guys who testified today and all the other Capitol Hill police who protect us and protect Capitol Hill, why weren’t they given more help?”
“Why wasn’t more help there that day? And the only person who can answer that question is the speaker of the United States House of Representatives. And I think she thought we were going to keep raising that question, and that’s why she didn’t put me on [the committee].”
“We’re just asking a fundamental question. Why wasn’t there a proper security posture on January 6, and what have we done to correct that? And to make sure it doesn’t happen in the future. I think those are fundamental questions. It’s not about blame. The blame resides with the people who did wrong. They should be prosecuted and they are being.”
