Jan 6 and Political Persecution
Congressman Bacon’s dilemma
With screaming over the January 6 melee, politics has entered a new realm of totalitarianism. The level of deception can be very hard to uncover. Brandon Straka, of the Walk Away Campaign, lives in Omaha and attended the pro-Trump rallies at the Capitol on January 6. He was charged and put in jail. You would expect local media including the World Herald and KFAB interviewing him but he is unseen and unheard. Fortunately, Mark Levin interviewed him and you can see and hear the interview at link below:
There were attacks on the Capitol Building on the West side. There were numerous bad people engaged in the attack, but many more people were on different sides of the building. Straka was on the east side where only peaceful protesting was taking place and security was allowing people into the building. The results were many peaceful people were arrested and by the dozens. The organization Citizens Against Political Persecution, at link below, has been trying to help the prisoners who have been poorly treated and held for over a year over minor offenses.
Congressman Bacon has a dilemma. He can keep on condemning the violence of January 6 all he wants but he cannot deny the level of political persecution taking place. As for the 2020 election, it had many flaws, substantial irregularities and yes, actions of fraud, which need to be addressed. Many laws and processes were changed due to COVID. Fraud or no fraud, if an election is not transparent, claiming it was free of fraud does no good. Bacon should revisit his thoughts on this topic. Recently, Secretary of State Bob Evnen responded to voter allegations from the Nebraska Voter Accuracy Project. While he was largely right about their allegations being incorrect, he totally missed an opportunity to address the problem with mail-in ballots and drop boxes. Ballot harvesting is hard to detect and prosecute: and mail-in balloting aids it well.
At the same time, Bacon’s support for the infrastructure bill has contributed to the likelihood, Omaha will have a street car. Is it no wonder, Jim Schultze is challenging him? (https://nebraskaexaminer.com/2022/02/09/bacon-draws-gop-challenger-who-moonlights-as-darth-vader/)
Some may think I am nit-picking small stuff, but the Federal government invades everything. Recently, the Omaha Public Schools approved providing free lunches to all students no matter what their economic status is. This is a bribe to parents to keep their kids in failing public schools and a subsidy to the rich, yet the World Herald fully endorsed it in their February 6 editorial.
This is not about poor students. The definition of needy students and poverty has been stretched already. If you can’t feed your kid, maybe your kid should be sent to foster care. Be honest, the barrier is obvious: well, if you send your kids to private schools, you will have to go through the trouble of paying for and making their lunch. It is a prison system, made possible through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Program, a Federal program.
