Opinion: Biden glorifies Jan. 6 / Rich to blame for climate change

To the editor: Why is Joe Biden glorifying January 6th?

It is a fairly simple question. Coming from the guy and party that claims to be tolerant, and wants to stop hate and racism, etc.

To me that day was about joining fellow Americans from around Vermont and our great Nation to support our President, and exercising our Constitutional rights. To Joe Biden and the left it was an “insurrection.” A question for Biden and the Left; how does a “so-called” organized group conduct an “insurrection” of the most powerful country on earth without any guns or other means of destruction?

Prior to the January 2021 activities, law enforcement received intelligence of possible protest at the U.S. Capitol. President Trump offered National Guard personnel. Congressional leaders denied the help, why, because the help was coming from Trump and it didn’t fit their narrative.

Today, it is evident by the actions of President Biden and the left that it is about hate, jealousy, and destroying a man! No one of sound rationale thinking believes that Trump had our nation on the wrong track. The GDP was growing, inflation was low, energy cost for Americans was affordable, our southern borders were under control and safe, he was standing up against the wokeism, we were respected around the world and he was holding NATO accountable. America’s strength and resolve was widely known.

Yes, many Americans did not like Mr. Trump for whatever reason(s). That is your issue, not the President’s. President Trump’s strong leadership and doing the right things for every single American was evident. I can say without reservation, that every American has been negatively impacted by the current President’s bad and horrible policies, especially his fiscal policies.

Biden’s celebration scheduled for the Blue Room on January 6th at the People’s House is disgusting! – Greg Thayer, Rutland


To the editor: 125 billionaires each emit about 3 million metric tons of carbon dioxide on average per year, more than 1 million times the amount emitted by 90% of people. – Oxfam International.

The richest 1% — the more than 60 million people earning $109,000 a year — are by far the fastest-growing source of emissions – Bloomberg.

Why then do politicians continue to place the burden of “solving” the climate crisis on the backs of the poor and the working class?  

Because billionaires and millionaires fund their campaigns.

Reject regressive public policies (like EV mandates, carbon schemes, and electrification of heating) until the rich are held proportionately accountable for their unsustainable lifestyles.

Leading by example will always effect change more than hypocrisy. – James Ehlers

  1. Biden is a divisive President, 2024 he can’t hide in the basement and will be forced to give live interviews, like Fetterman that will be his downfall.

  2. “Prior to the January 2021 activities, law enforcement received intelligence of possible protest at the U.S. Capitol. President Trump offered National Guard personnel. Congressional leaders denied the help, why, because the help was coming from Trump and it didn’t fit their narrative.”

    Trump also offered the Navy’s hospital ship Comfort, berthed in New York to treat COVID cases and relieve the burden on local hospitals. It treated only 182 patients because local DEMOCRATS did not want to make Trump look good. One consequence of the petty partisan politics was the death of hundreds of elderly people who were unnecessarily exposed. This is how DEMOCRATS operate. They would rather kill decent, innocent citizens then to grant any limelight to their political opposition…and yet people vote for these vermin. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

  3. “The rioting and loss of control has raised serious questions over security at the Capitol for future events. The actions of the day also raise troubling concerns about the treatment of mainly white Trump supporters, who were allowed to roam through the building for hours, while Black and brown protesters were arrested for trespassing in the Capitol Building.” Hey, don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.

    • Huh. You then DO feel the exact same way then about the bombs that were planted by democrat party extremists within the Capital in 1971 and again in 1983 but of course? Those two dates are amongst the more recent ACTUAL attacks that have occurred at the People’s House over the birth of this nation.

      Also, your reply failed to mention the now well-known and very soon to be investigated by our newly elected Congress – reality that the FBI infiltrated that crowd of UNARMED and largely peaceful protestors in order to intentionally incite mayhem….but there you go – I’ve now created an addendum of sorts to your comment here for all to see.

      You neglected as well to recall the “rioting and loss of control” directly caused by BLM and antifa – funded in part by George Soros and the now sitting US Vice President Kamala Harris – which transpired over the summer of 2020 in effort, along with the fraudulent election of ’20, in order to unseat duly elected US President Trump.

      Your mention of only “black & brown” protestors being held responsible for trespass at the PEOPLE’S HOUSE is not merely “disinformation” but an abject falsehood. The ONLY people not charged with varying crimes associated with the January 6 incident were the FBI plants and democrat party operatives who worked to create the entire charade in order to destroy any chances of US President Trump had to attempt to contest the troubled ’20 election or run for re-election.

    • Your two subsequent replies confirm your degree of partisanship and the capriciousness of your belief systems.

      I know history. It’s historical revisionism you obviously prefer.

    • Of course there’s no fear of retribution here. What do you think, we’re all a bunch of radicalized “democrat socialists”? If that were the case, there would be no opportunity to speak freely at all – as on the websites of VTDigger, Bennington Banner, et al.

  4. THANK YOU, Mr. Thayer for your insightful, truthful, and factual letter. The sad reality that this nation is being essentially overthrown by groups of radicalized Americans and being fully supported by a mass media which once was the mainstay of perpetuating a free society through a once free press is difficult to bear. Yet there remain far too many patriots, such as yourself & most poster on here, for it to ever be enabled to crumble and fall.

  5. However, the borders were under control, although Trump tried to make them more controlled.

  6. “The current deep level of corruption and nefariousness being witnessed within this Constitutional Republic is what the Founding Fathers were all attempting to warn us of and prevent back in Eighteenth Century America.” —– Me.

  7. Darned if I can find where George Washington was quoted with the nickle in the pie comment?

  8. Please don’t include me as one of the “every single American” who Trump did the right things for.

  9. For a dose of reality:

    “We didn’t start the fire. It was always burning since the world’s been turning”. —- Billy Joel

  10. My question is who opened the doors to the capital on jan 6 and why? And why did pelosi refuse the help of the National Guard? welch and balant continually lie about that day, Russian collusion and the SCOTUS going to take a woman’s right to murder her child away. sanders, welch and balant are a disgrace to Vermont.

  11. Wasn’t there a Congressional committee investigating the events of January 6, 2021? What were their findings? What happened? After Elon Musk took over at Twitter, the fateful day statement of President Trump was restored in whole without editing. The mysterious Ray Epps character came into clear focus. Nancy Pelosi had her daughter’s film crew following her around the whole time as she proclaimed “I’ll punch him (meaning Trump) in the face.” There are political prisoners still sitting in a DC gulag and other prisons around the country with no rights of due process under the law. Facts? Findings? No, just lies and deception to cover up massive corruption and gross injustice against American citizens – which a number of them are veterans. Any politician or bureaucrat still touting the lies of J6 is outing themselves as treasonous traitors and should be dealt with according to the law – military law.

    • Re: “Wasn’t there a Congressional committee investigating the events of January 6, 2021? What were their findings?”

      The report is now public. You can ‘Google’ it.

      For one thing, the report shows that the so-called ‘select committee’ broke its own rules and withheld exculpatory evidence that was provided by the Defense Secretary’s Chief of Staff (Kash Patel).

      The report also shows that the FBI withheld a Situational Information Report from the White House after the White House security staff recommended 20,000 National Guard troops be deployed under the direction and control of the House Speaker (Nancy Pelosi) and the Washington DC mayor (Murial Bowser).

      Both Speaker Pelosi and Major Bowser prohibited the additional National Guard troops and ‘no-climb’ fencing from being deployed.

      The FBI Situational Information Report is dated January 5th, 2021. And it describes “and online thread discussing “specific calls for violence to include stating ‘Be ready to fight’. Congress needs to hear glass breaking, doors being kicked in, and blood from their BLM and Pantifa slave soldiers being spilled. Get violent…stop calling this a march, or rally, or a protest. Go there ready for war. We get our President or we die. NOTHING else will achieve this goal.”

      Readers can listen to Mr. Patel’s discussion of these circumstances and much, much more, on this link.

      Make no mistake. This is the tip of a corrupt iceberg. The ‘Jan 6 Insurrection’ was a setup. The riots were being lied about by the Biden administration just yesterday. And to those of you who supported this false narrative… understand something… we know who you are.

      The report also shows that the FBI withheld a Situational Information Report from the White House when the administration security staff recommended 20,000 National Guard troops be deployed under the direction and control of the House Speaker (Nancy Pelosi) and the Washington DC Mayor (Murial Bowser).

      Both Speaker Pelosi and Mayor Bowser, who’s permission to deploy National Guard troops is required by law, prohibited the additional troops and ‘no-climb’ fencing from being deployed.

      The FBI Situational Information Report is dated January 5th, 2021. This means the information was known before January 5th. The report specifically describes an ‘online thread’ discussing “… specific calls for violence to include stating ‘Be ready to fight’. Congress needs to hear glass breaking, doors being kicked in, and blood from their BLM and Pantifa slave soldiers being spilled. Get violent…stop calling this a march, or rally, or a protest. Go there ready for war. We get our President or we die. NOTHING else will achieve this goal.”

      Why was this information withheld from the White House staff? Why did Speaker Pelosi and Mayor Bowser prohibit the deployment of the National Guard?

      Yes, these are rhetorical questions. And make no mistake. This is the tip of a massively corrupt iceberg. The ‘Jan 6 Insurrection’ was a setup – as was the Russia Hoax, the Mueller investigation, and the Trump impeachments. Why was Ray Epps not arrested? Who is the ‘scaffold commander’? Who is the ‘pipe bomber’?

      The Biden administration’s dishonesty in this regard continues to this day. And to those who support their false narrative… understand something… we know who many of you are.

  12. To anyone who hasn’t already watched this interview between Glen Beck and Revolver’s Dr. Darren Beattie, please do so. It’s not so much the epiphanies and revelations surrounding the Jan 6 fiasco they discuss, but what I consider to be the libertarian (with a small ‘l’) sensibilities that are now at extreme risk in our Constitutional Republic. We are, indeed, at a crossroads. This interview does not tell us everything that is happening, far from it. But it does give us an example of the frame of mind true liberty seeking individuals should consider as we sift through everything from Jan 6 to Covid to the renewed cold war between the U.S. and China and Russia. This is, yet again, a time that tries our souls.
