The Pentagon's Failure To Protect Congress Is Coming Into Chilling Focus
As the Senate hears testimony about the deadly insurrection on January 6th, the question of why the Joint Chiefs of Staff waited more than 3 hours before sending help looms large over the proceedings. #Colbert #ALateShow #Monologue

    I know this episode of the show is a month old at the time of this typing, but I just want to say a few words: My family believes that QAnon is true. I do not, I think a lot of what they say is bollocks, but many of the theories they churn out that my family believes are honestly really disturbing. It’s stressful to listen to and hear them continuing to say that it’s all true.

    If you've ever read the 9/11 report (or at least relevant parts of it) you will be chilled to know that this is nothing new. When America gets attacked by terrorists the first responders to trust are still civilian agencies. It was not until after civilian authorities called for a grounding of all airplanes in US airspace that the Pentagon responded. The military's contribution? Almost shooting down two civilian airliners by mistake! Bloating the Pentagon budget does not 'support our troops.' It goes primarily to corporate contractors who don't care a flying flock about the defense of our country. They just enjoy being given taxpayer money while hiding behind the 'private corporation' label to avoid oversight. Look up the F-22 and F-35 development histories as examples: the corporations screwed up so... Congress gave them MORE money to fix the problems the corporations created. Oh and these corporations also get the profit from weapons sales to Saudi Arabia. You know, the country where 14 of the 9/11 hijackers (plus Bin Laden himself) were from...


    The Pentagon was busy packing our tax dollars into their buddies bank accounts to notice our democracy was collapsing. Pentagon = blackhole for tax dollars. It's why we can't have nice things like medicare for all.

    These Republicans these days are just the absolute worst people. Willing to shovel over trillions to giant corporations but the everyday folks who actually need it evidently aren’t worthy of a dime; even though we all paid our taxes which is where it’s coming from. Scumbag pieces of garbage.

    The charter of the Pentagon is not to defend elected officials. It is to serve the commander in chief. Steve should have stuck with comedy. Whatever this is just isn't working.

Just keeping "the right ones (white males)" in the top 1% of wealthiest. Looking after No.1 first, of course. Who got vaccinated FIRST? Apologies for my callous remarks but it fits the profile of your last president....& more so...

    Remember, Trump fired DoD/Pentagon chief Esper on Nov. 9, 2 days after Biden was declared the winner. Replaced him with Christopher Miller. This explains why Trump made this change. He wanted his insurrection to succeed. Esper would not break the law for him, but Miller helped by delaying approval of the National Guard for over 3 hours. This was on every news channel. DC is a small city. There is no excuse for this. Maybe officer Sicknick would still be alive if Trump didn't collude with Miller to delay a response.

    Einstein didnt say that. Im pretty sure everyone working on this show has more schooling than i do. They shouldn't misattribute quotes. The quote come frome some author in the 80's. A lady if im right.
