The Brew: Pelosi J6 Shocker: ‘I Take Responsibility’

Today’s Brew opens with a spit take.

J6 Bombshell: Pelosi Caught on Tape Saying, “I Take Responsibility”

Nancy Pelosi, behind closed car doors on J6, took responsibility for the U.S. Capitol being overrun that day. Specifically, she blamed herself for the National Guard not being on hand at the time.

The House Oversight Committee released the shocking, stunning video of an agitated Pelosi on J6 in her limo, minutes after being whisked away from the Capitol, venting about the security failures and putting it on her own shoulders. “We did not have any accountability for what was going on there, and we should have,” she says. “I take responsibility.”

The footage is an outtake from daughter Alexandra’s documentary about J6. (The committee got hold of the footage from HBO.) Alexandra had been following her mother around with a camera all day, documenting the expected certification of the 2020 election, only to capture the behind-the-scenes chaos of that unfortunate day.

In the clip, Pelosi rails at her chief of staff Terri McCullough — and herself.

“You’re going to ask me — in the middle of the thing when they’ve already breached the inaugural stuff — ‘Should we call the Capitol Police, I mean the National Guard?’ Why weren’t the National Guard there to begin with?”

McCullough replies that the Capitol Police thought they had enough resources. (Which is not true, by the way.)

Pelosi replies, “No, that’s not a question of how they had … they don’t know. They clearly didn’t know. And I take responsibility for not having them just prepare for more.”

Funny how none of this made it into any of her primetime J6 specials.

Yet, rather than step up and publicly take responsibility, Pelosi decided not to let the crisis go to waste. Instead, she put the nation through three years of misery, pinning J6 on Trump, creating a bogus J6 Committee to hang him, burying the fact that Trump had offered National Guard troops to protect the Capitol and that she, herself, had rejected that offer … and regretted it.

While in that car, Pelosi could have made the right turn. Instead, she took the dark road and dragged the nation under her wheels.

What now? Speaker Mike Johnson, what are you going to do about Pelosi’s stunning confession?

Jury Deliberations Underway in Hunter Biden Gun Trial

The defense in the Hunter Biden gun case rested Monday, closing arguments have wrapped, and the First Son’s fate now lies in the hands of a hometown Wilmington jury. The prosecution had the facts, and the defense played on jurors’ emotions with the First Lady of the United States looking on. (That would be Jill Biden, wife of the man who says “Nobody ****s with a Biden.”)

If convicted on all three felony counts he’s facing (lying to a federally licensed gun dealer, making a false claim on the application by saying he was not a drug user and illegally having the gun for 11 days), Hunter Biden could get 25 years in the slammer, though as a first-time offender he’d likely be sentenced to much less, perhaps even avoid the clink all together.

Last week, the president confirmed he would not pardon his son, if convicted.

51 Intel Honchos Who Called Hunter’s Laptop ‘Russian Disinformation’ in Bid to Sway 2020 Election Still Refuse to Apologize

Last week, at Biden’s gun trial, the prosecution introduced his laptop into evidence, where witnesses declared it both legitimate and the information on it unaltered. The collected response of the 51 top intelligence officials who signed a statement right before the 2020 election declaring the laptop to be likely Russian misinformation? “So what?” Thus far, none have apologized for misleading the public. In fact, several have told Fox News it was “patriotic” to sign the letter.

What do you think? Are these people a group of Nathan Hales? Or Benedict Arnolds?

For the record, there was never any indication that Russia had anything to do with the laptop, except for Hunter’s dalliances with Russian hookers and taking in big bucks from the Moscow mayor’s widow. There is, however, a confession that the letter was conceived with the expressed purpose of impacting the 2020 election. And current Secretary of State Antony Blinken was a major figure behind its creation.

Yesterday, Donald Trump had to talk to a parole officer because he signed a fully legal nondisclosure agreement. Yet these characters have abused their public positions to undermine an election, got caught, and still face no consequence. In fact, Blinken has become America’s top diplomat.

AOC Thinks Trump Will Put Her in Jail

Remember when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed her Republican critics only attacked her because they want to date her? AOC’s ego is now matched only by her paranoia. The Squad Leader told podcaster Kara Swisher she’s worried Trump will throw her in the Big House if elected back into the White House.

“I mean, it sounds nuts, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this guy threw me in jail,” AOC said. “He’s out of his mind. I mean, he did his whole first campaign around ‘lock her up.’ This is his motto.”

Marriage and Children a Good Thing for Society? Only 20% of Biden Voters Say So

This seems like a no-brainer. A new Pew survey asked respondents whether “society is better off if people make marriage and having children a priority.” However, only a shocking 19% of registered voters who support Joe Biden agree, compared to 59% of Trump voters.

“We have our work cut out for us,” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins told The Stream. “Only 4 in 10 American voters recognize that marriage and family make life better. Not surprisingly, 59% of Trump voters recognize this vs. 19% of Biden supporters. The differences are reflected in the party platforms, making it all the more important that the GOP party platform continues to champion marriage and the sanctity of life — the building blocks of family.”

The survey also shows 59% of Biden voters agree that “Someone can be a man or woman even if that is different from the sex they were assigned at birth.” Only 9% of Trump voters believe that.

The race used to be between Democrat and Republican. Now it’s between reality and insanity.
