A Second Impeachment is the Best Path Forward
Our nation’s capitol came under attack this week.
The invading group had weapons, used force to break in, and stole objects from our capitol. Since the attack happened while Congress was in session, they also threatened the representatives of our nation, as well as the 2nd, 3rd and 4th in line of command for our country.
This group had bombs, and zip tie like restraints as well as a gallows. From most accounts, this was never intended to be a peaceful protest.
Peaceful protesters don’t come with these objects.
No one argues the fact that these invaders should have consequences for their actions, and some have already been arrested, with others being investigated.
But what about their leader?
When our ships at Pearl Harbor were shot, unprovoked, we didn’t just blame the pilots of the attacking planes. When extremist ISIS members invaded our country’s planes and used them to crash into buildings, we didn’t just blame the hijackers.
We rightly placed blame at the feet of their leader who sent them.
Both times, when our nation was under attack, we knew we had to move with urgency and consequences against not just the individual Japanese and ISIS members who committed the acts of violence against our nation, but also against their leaders.
Who authorized these attacks on January 6th? Who planned these attacks? Who gave the order to send armed and dangerous people against us?
On December 7th, 1941, the actions of the Japanese brought us into the war against Japan. On September 11th, 2001 it sparked our War on Terrorism.
