When listening to congressional hearings, one can only conclude that our nation is in serious trouble. It has always been my understanding that congressional hearings were for the purpose of exposing information and trying to learn what really happened. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
It is beyond question that congressional hearings are held for political purposes. Case in point is the hearing on censorship. Did the current administration practice censorship? Censorship is a system in which an authority limits the ideas that people are allowed to express in any form. Our first amendment states that we have a right to free speech. There is no qualification. We do not see that we have freedom of speech only to which the majority agree, that is not hateful, that is not disinformation or misinformation.
In this hearing we saw the deliberate attempt to censor. We saw an attempt not to learn the truth or reveal facts, but we witnessed personal attacks simply for political purposes. We saw what was called evidence that was taken out of context for the purpose of demeaning and damaging a witness.
What is sad and alarming was that the purpose of the hearing for some was not to learn facts, not to present evidence, but to protect political parties and to protect political positions. George Washington told us that we must be mindful of the time when political parties place their own interests above the best interest of the country.
We have witnessed a political party that has stated its purpose is to transform the United States of America. To bring about the transformation, they have determined they must deceive, outright lie, and shame and slander any who disagree with them.
Many people will say this could be applied to both parties. There is truth to that statement, but just like there is truth when we say both sides have cheated in elections, the left, in their determination to transform the United States exclusively live by their axiom of, “the ends justify the means.” The distortions and election cheating are always practiced by the left while the distortions and election cheating are an exception to the rule by the right because most on the right believe the means are critical in their attempt to find truth.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
