Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, June 29, 2022

Robin Givhan: The witness called him "sir." When Cassidy Hutchinson, the former White House aide, testified before the Jan. 6 committee on Tuesday afternoon, she addressed Chairman Bennie G. Thompson with a word that afforded him respect as a man, not merely as an official.

The Jan. 6 hearings have been for the benefit of the American public and Thompson has been the dignified host inviting folks in. His tone is calm and slightly melancholy. But he never gives off even a whiff of resignation. He has been resolute in his belief that America is the greatest country in the world and that the insurrection was "a hiccup" in our history. For Thompson, democracy isn't shattered beyond repair; it's damaged, but fixable.

And somehow, Thompson is convincing.

Pull up a chair and have a listen; the stories will curl your hair.

Hutchinson came to Thompson's house and she told of a country brought to the edge of calamity by its president and his team. She narrated her story in punishing detail, but without embroidery, as if she was sitting on a front porch unfurling a truth that already feels as though it has gathered dust.

At the end, Thompson once again expressed his appreciation. "Thank you for doing your patriotic duty," he told her. "You have the gratitude of this committee and your country."

It's amazing how grace during times of dire seriousness allows the actual subject matter to be the most important factor - as it should be - instead of the usual preening and tut-tutting of those charged with presenting the evidence and testimony themselves dominating the post-hearing news cycles.

If nothing, these hearings have been far more effective and eye-opening due to the precision and seamlessness of the committee and its chairman to focus only on the facts and evidence calmly, rationally, and largely without embellishment or bombast. History will look kindly upon their efforts while noting their seeming effectiveness in laying out a comprehensive narrative of how this nation barely avoided a full-blown disaster.

What exactly is he being praised for? Saying these events were bad and seeming solemn about it? As if we couldnt have found anyone else who could do that yet also pronounce the word "ASK" properly? Hint - it's not "AX".

I've lost track at home many mumbled grammatical goofs he's made. If you dont grasp the english language, it kind of makes you a little less credible as a prosecutor, investigator, or judge.

If his heartrate went above 5 beats per minute maybe this investigation wouldnt have taken a year and a half.

Why did he deserve this spot? What moron gave it to him? We needed someone fast and efficient with a prosecutor's mind and wit. We got a sleepy slab of beef who can't pronounce anything over 2 syllables.

Believe it or not, this is an acceptable pronunciation of "Ask" and has been for centuries, long before there were any English speakers in America.

Having Liz Cheney on one side of him and Schiff, Lofgren, and Haskins on the other provides plenty of acute English pronunciations.

It's as if you're completely oblivious of just how effective this committee has been and will continue to be as it methodically fills in most of the blanks which will allow the guilty to be prosecuted and held responsible for their actions.

It would be sad if it weren't tragic just how ignorant you are of reality and American political and racial history in asking such bigoted questions and making socially insensitive observations.

Bennie Thompson and his committee will go down in history and be spoken of with respect and admiration for centuries as the template for both comity and effectiveness.

Therein lies the difference. Your pithy observations aren't worth the warm spittle falling from your mouth while you're angerly bleating them out.

An effective committee wouldn't have taken a year and a half. It's hard to believe a more awake committee chair wouldn't have sped up the pace. I don't think benny thompson was cracking the whip on many investigators to get it done faster.

Requesting the head of the most important committee in modern political history have good communication skills is not racial in any way. I'd say the same thing if he had a severe stutter. Or philly accent so thick it made him look stupid. Or couldnt stop sneezing due to allergies.

This is not about people who already know trump deserves prosecution patting themselves on the back for the diversity of their committee. This is about convincing the people who dont pay much attention to pay attention. And benny thompson's sleepy slow mispronunciations aren't the way to do that. Who are the voters we need to hear this - swing state moderates. We needed a leader who spoke to them the way they are used to being spoken to. Not someone who tunes in, hears benny thompson and thinks "oh this isn't for me. I can barely understand him and I'm falling asleep as I try. [clicks to another channel]"

You don't "think" at all. The committee has interviewed over 1000 witnesses. There are approximately 40 staff members and the committee has gone through more than 35,000 pages of documents in less than one year - the committee was approved one year ago TOMORROW.

Requesting the head of the most important committee in modern political history have good communication skills is not racial in any way.

No one of importance has publicly criticized Thompson's articulation abilities. In fact, that is why this article doles out praise for Thompson's personal style and manner of leadership allowing others to take the microphones instead of him hogging the limelight for himself.

It's only "ethnic based" because the white majority has forever refused to prioritize educating blacks on an equitable basis with whites even though blacks pay taxes just like everybody else in America.

You may be surprised to learn that none other than Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. himself warned us against blind trust in public schools and their teachers. Two of his parishioners, both Black high school educators, said he told them "white people view black people as inferior. A large percentage of them have a very low opinion of our race. People with such a low view of the black race cannot be given free rein and put in charge of the intellectual care and development of our boys and girls."

Today, many Black children attend schools with more metal detectors than mental health services, more police officers than counselors and more of a look of a starter prison than a school.

It is still legal for educators to beat school children in 19 states, which, as you might imagine, disproportionately affects Black boys. Black girls are five times more likely to be suspended from school and four times more likely to be arrested at school when compared to white girls. According to one study, nonwhite students had the least access to four resources essential for college-bound students: grade-appropriate assignments, strong instruction, deep engagement and teachers who hold high expectations.

Madona moved to england and had an english accent within months.

It's not just about his accent and butchering of complex words, it's about his speed. Not just in the chairman's seat but in interviews. The man does not capture your attention and communicate efficiently, which is what we need right now.

Again - WHY HIM?

Get off your lazy ignorant asterisk and find out why him!

We have to get it right;' Why ... Bennie Thompson is the right person to chair committee investigating US Capitol attack

Published: Jul. 26, 2021, 6:34 a.m.

As the longtime chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, Thompson is accustomed to dealing with grave matters of national security. But his stewardship of the Jan. 6 panel will be a test unlike any other, as he tries to untangle the events of a violent insurrection that many House Republicans increasingly play down and deny.

Several Democrats and Republicans said Thompson was the right choice to lead an investigation that is certain to be partisan and fraught.

"I've dealt with Bennie for 15 years, and we disagreed on a lot, but I don't think there was ever a harsh word between us," says former Republican Rep. Pete King of New York, who was the chairman and top Republican on the Homeland Security Committee for years opposite Thompson. "Bennie is low key, he manages his side well. He was a good guy to work with. He was strong and knew what he wanted, but there was very little drama."

New York Rep. John Katko, who is now the top Republican on the Homeland Security Committee, gave a similar assessment. Thompson is "a good man, a patriotic American" and a "productive partner," Katko said in statement.

Pelosi chose Thompson as chairman after he crafted legislation with Katko that would have created an independent, bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6 attack.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who was appointed to the Jan. 6 committee, said Thompson's history of working with Republicans and his popularity among members will make it harder to malign the panel's work. Reaching the bipartisan deal with Katko was not an easy task, he said.

"I think he has a very even keel that will help him get through this," Schiff said.

Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, another Democrat appointed to the select committee, says both parties have "partisan brawlers" - and Thompson is not one of them.

"He's a workhorse, so he likes getting stuff done," Raskin said. "And I think that's the right spirit for this."

You're all about appearances Speaks, your posts drip of drama and bombast. That is not what this committee needs nor was it ever wanted. 1/6 is about laying out facts and evidence soberly, without embellishment, letting the facts and testimony move the story instead of those asking the questions and eliciting the responses.

And this has been wildly effective without being partisan or off-putting. Perhaps you might notice one day since it's making non-stop headlines and has moved the SCOTUS off the topline at least for the time being. The witnesses are the story, not the chair nor his members. This is exactly how it should be.

No it isn't. It's effectively a publicly held grand jury. There is no cross examination of witnesses or challenging of evidence, just like - wait for it - a grand jury proceeding.

And theatrics aren't useful in grand jury hearings, just the presentation of evidence and the creating of a coherent narrative of likely criminal conduct.

It's nice that Republicans vouch for his credibility and honesty as a fair arbiter and leader. I guess you'd prefer the Democratic version of Jim Jordan, huh?

^^ A perfect of the tone deafness that helped get Trump and the ming-mongs riding on his coattails elected.

"Your viewpoint is YOURS and not shared by a majority of Americans regardless of what you deludedly think."

Sounds like you've deluded yourself into thinking just because a majority of Americans rejected Trump in the last election it means they agree with your own viewpoint. Americans are fickle. A lot the same people who previously voted for Obama voted for Trump in 2016, and then four years later Trump lost by practically the same electoral and state count margins that his opponent did to him in the previous election.

"Who gives AF?"

And here's another example of the trolling tactic Sally4th has been regularly engaging in. He doesn't give AF if someone was talking about something different than what he's monomaniacally focused on. He doesn't want to listen what other people are actually saying.

What a load of hogwash. No one is beyond criticism, especially myself. I completely disagree with Speaks as it regards theater being more important than substance. I back my current belief with polling done both before and after the hearings began. That is a gauge of how the general public feels about the hearing's effectiveness in moving opinion.

Every poll shows the same thing: people are moving toward belief in Trump's culpability, and GOPers who feel that way have doubled - albeit from 10 to 20 percent in some polling.

Any article whose title includes the word "melancholy" likely won't be a hard-hitting deep dig. The point of the article however articulates an extremely analytical viewpoint of what's going on right now: Trump critics of the panel are having an extremely difficult time painting the work product as partisan because almost all of the testimony and information is coming from Trump's own "best hires" - those loyalists inside his Administration - with nary a Democrat-connected individual in sight. Much of the leading questioners are also bonafide conservatives - Cheney and Kinzinger - both with almost spotless hard right records outside of standing against Trump's criminality and unconstitutional conduct.

Analysis yields moving results such as these:

"There's still a lot of uncertainty about the question of criminal intent when it comes to a president, but what just happened changed my bottom line," said Alan Rozenshtein, a former Justice Department official who teaches at the University of Minnesota Law School. "I have gone from Trump is less than likely to be charged to he is more than likely to be charged."

Some legal scholars said Ms. Hutchinson's testimony made the best case to date that Mr. Trump had in fact incited the crowd.

"Until this point, we had not seen proof that he knew about the violence," said Daniel Goldman, a former federal prosecutor who served as the lead counsel during Mr. Trump's first impeachment and is currently running for Congress in New York. "The testimony made very clear he was not only entirely aware of the threat, but wanted armed people to march to the Capitol. He was even willing to lead them."

www.nytimes.com

And add Mick Mulvaney to the increasing chorus of Trump skeptics who're now seeing a path for his indictment.

My belief is still that much of the committee's effectiveness can be encapsulated by the manner and demeanor of its chairman. And so do its members who've made public statements about his stewardship.

Don't kid yourself; those numbers are massive. Anytime disagreement doubles, political folks sit up and take notice.

I've noticed a daily uptick in folks who believe Trump broke the law. Each point, ultimately, is significant.

Do you watch the hearings? Are you aware that people are watching them live and many more tune in nightly to see what they've missed in the daytime? Did you notice the nighttime ratings WERE HIGHER as the hearings went on even though Bennie kept speaking occasionally?

Can you find a single critic complaining about Bennie but for you? I tried and couldn't find a soul. If you are going to make allegations that are proven false by actual facts, at least link to something vouching for your stance.

Newsflash: Many Americans speak like Bennie including many whites in the South. The Committee is big news regardless of how Bennie speaks. The substance of the evidence and testimony are the issues Americans care about, not the chairman's speech cadence.

It looks like they are up to many more records now:

The investigation commenced with public hearings on July 27, 2021 when four police officers testified. As of the end of 2021, it had interviewed more than 300 witnesses and obtained more than 35,000 documents. By May 2022, those totals had surpassed 1,000 witnesses and 125,000 records.

You can read a "Timeline of proceedings" there, which details public actions the committee has taken from July 27, 2021 until June 23, 2022.

I have lived my entire life in the South and find his accent authentic and not reflective of lower intelligence. I once worked under a prominent Kentucky official who grew up with no plumbing, electricity or telephone but overcame his difficult upbringing to acquire a mechanical engineering degree. To some he sounded like a hick when he spoke. People who paid attention knew better.

As I said, the south is a lost cause. Putting a sleepy guy who says "ax" instead of "ask" in charge of the investigation into trump only helps them "OTHER" the prosecution and sell the false narrative that this is a biased process run by the democrats.

I'm from the south too, and in my experience, the thicker the accent, the dumber the person.

Not only that, people from the south aren't known for being fast or efficient at anything. It's the heat.

I can spot a Pittsburgh accent as soon as I hear one on TV. I've lost most of mine, but it's not because I'm smarter than those people I identify as being from my hometown. It's because I moved away years ago, and my accent got worn away in the process .
