    The U.S. House committee investigating the January 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol voted unanimously Thursday afternoon to subpoena former President Donald Trump.

    The lawmakers issued the subpoena to question Trump about his alleged role in the events that led up to some of the violence that unfolded that afternoon.

    "The central cause of Jan. 6 was one man, Donald Trump, who many others followed," said Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the vice chairwoman of the committee. "President Trump had a premeditated plan to declare that the election was fraudulent and stolen before Election Day."

    Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) said that the panel had an "obligation" to hear from the former president.

    "This is a question about accountability to the American people," Thompson said. "He must be accountable. He is required to answer for his actions."

    Trump responded on social media to being subpoenaed by the committee by questioning the timing of their vote.

    "Why didn't the Unselect Committee ask me to testify months ago?" Trump wrote. "Why did they wait until the very end, the final moments of their last meeting? Because the Committee is a total 'BUST' that has only served to further divide our Country which, by the way, is doing very badly - A laughing stock all over the World?"

    Politico noted that there are numerous factors that could prevent the committee from being able to compel Trump's cooperation with the subpoena.

    The report said that one factor cutting against the committee's push to get Trump to cooperate was the fact that there are legal issues regarding separation of powers. Another issue was that even if the committee is legally able to force Trump to cooperate, by the time the litigation is over the committee would be over with the new Congress starting in January.

    There is little precedent for such a move against a former president, which would raise thorny separation of powers issues that have rarely, if ever, been litigated.

Considering what is being reported as the most divisive presidential speech - September 1, 2022 - in modern American history, where over 74,000,000 people, many of whom are OUR greatest patriots, were named as fascists by inference or otherwise: Is Joe Biden clearly capable of governing all of the American People to the betterment of this Representative Republic?
  Yes, it is important that Haters are named.
  No, Joe Biden cannot accept criticism when the real truth is his cruelest taskmaster.
  I have no idea what is going on because I only consume Democratic Socialist Media.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
