    There is soo much going on it needs discussion.

    The dispute was over the calendar. The beginning of each month depended on witnesses testifying to having observed the new moon, and the laws surrounding the procedure are complex. Rabbi Yehoshua believed the decision of the court to have been in error, and he made a stand to have the date corrected.

    January 6 and the Challenge of Trusting the Constitution
    One year later, we should rededicate ourselves to our nation’s highest principles.

    Nick Searcy Blows the Lid Off the Jan 6. Narrative With 'Capitol Punishment'
    BY VICTORIA TAFT JAN 14, 2022 5:19 PM ET

    The actor, who stars opposite former Mandalorian actress Gina Carano in the upcoming film Terror on the Prairie and who’s appeared in some of the biggest Hollywood movies, including The Shape of Water, Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri, Moneyball, Cast Away, and Fried Green Tomatoes and co-starred in the hit television FX series Justified, knows something about stagecraft.

    But he was stunned at the stage-crafted events of Jan. 6.

    “Everything that we are being told [about Jan. 6] is a lie and Americans are being persecuted to support that lie,” says Searcy who features national security experts in the film who attest that the assault on the Capitol for political ends “was years in the making.”

    This explains a lot.

    Let’s start with the law and its origins. As a rule, the Constitution prevents Congress from prohibiting a person who meets the basic requirements of Article I § 2 (age, citizenship, residency) from competing in a federal election or being seated in government should they win. The sole exception, established after the Civil War in the 14th Amendment, § 3, is for those people who have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against” our nation.

    Interesting article from a new source
    https://afnn.us/AP.asp?AU=25ZZ2146

    Then there's more clarity.

    Just as Francis Church of the New York Sun famously replied to 8-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon’s question about Santa in 1897, we too can say: “Yes, Virginia, the insurrection exists” and has for a century. But it’s not what the left and the mainstream media have identified.

    The definition of insurrection includes “actions taken against an established government” for the purposes of overthrowing the government and it includes violence.

    By that definition, conservatives, constitutionalists, independents, and even many traditional liberals—a majority I call Normal Americans (“Normals”)—cannot ever be guilty of that charge. Why? Because we are not trying to overthrow and replace our duly formed constitutional republic form of government. Period.

    We are defending that government against an outright attack by radicals who do want to replace it, and we are pushing back against the unelected bureaucratic and authoritarian administrative state that the left uses for power and control. Normals have zero desire to collapse America, harm its economy, or enslave its people through Marxist control. Radicals do.

    Radicals have been engaged in a soft insurrection with occasional violence for 100 years. Now, they’re feeling Normals rising. They recognize that, for the first time, Normals have finally had enough and are starting to challenge leftist control over institutions.

    Because leftists are unable to defend their ideas in open debate, their only option is to get Normals tagged as “insurrectionists” and “domestic terrorists.” Their only option is to ‘crush’ their opponents.

    Constitutional republics and socialism are oil-and-water politically and economically, and cannot co-exist, even in segments. These very radicals are the ones engaged in insurrection because their goal requires that our republic and economy collapse.

    Radicals have relied upon the “violence” part of insurrection. 2020 saw over 500 riots, 35 deaths, and devastating violence against cities. They threatened to escalate this violence if Trump won re-election. And the same violence instantly stopped once Biden won. Imagine that! That was a true taste of insurrection.

    But radicals have a problem. Normals have reached a breaking point and a
