    After Day 2 of the House Jan. 6 Select Committee hearings, former President Donald Trump let loose with a 12-page statement in which he dismissed the proceedings as both a distraction from President Joe Biden's failures and a bid to block a Trump run for the presidency in 2024.

    "This is merely an attempt to stop a man that is leading in every poll, against both Republicans and Democrats by wide margins, from running again for the presidency," Trump said in his rebuke.

    "The reason I am leading in the polls is because Democrats have caused record inflation, sky high gas prices, energy dependence on our adversaries, the education system is in crisis, illegal aliens are invading our border, the supply chain has crippled our way of life, parents can't get baby formula, mandates have crippled businesses, and our way of life has been crushed by government regulations.

    "Seventeen months after the events of Jan. 6, Democrats are unable to offer solutions," Trump wrote as he zeroed in on the struggling economy. "They are desperate to change the narrative of a failing nation, without even making mention of the havoc and death caused by the radical left just months earlier.

    "Make no mistake, they control the government. They own this disaster. They are hoping that these hearings will somehow alter their failing prospects.

    "A certain Democrat once said, 'It's the economy, stupid.' Well, Democrats now seem to think that Americans are 'stupid.' They are not. America is crumbling, and Democrats have no solutions."

    Among other highlights of Trump's statement:…

    T
    his news report about the economy and the Jan 6 committee is exactly right. The economy is hurting. Inflation is terrible, gas prices are deliberately high. It is the economy, stupid. As to the Jan 6 committee,17 months after the fact, they have nothing and are a diversion away from the disaster that is the biDen regime.

    Thank God that Trump is still speaking out and that there are honest news organizations out there that will report on what he said without adding a word of their own commentary to the mix

    Yes, he blasted the commission his kids were compelled to appear before. It’s just great that his statement is being objectively reported upon without the usual msm prefacing of all his words

    And Ivanka/Jaded said Trump was lying when he claimed the election was rigged.

    You must have been shocked.

    Yup...
    The Newsmax Article in the OP is a 12-Page Campaign Ad...
    ...(based on Trump's Deluded OPINION)...
    Trump's Delusions seem to be totally oblivious to the FACT:
    That DeSantis (and other 2024 GOP Hopefuls) are licking their chops knowing that Trump is being damaged in these hearings (in a way which may prevent his Re-Nomination)...

    Even though I have a low opinion of him, he is right in this case.

    Some of my favourite bits:

    p3 "Why would it take four more days to count a few hundred thousand votes when they had counted millions in one day? ....There’s no reasonable explanation for why it took so much longer to count the few remaining ballots as opposed to the millions on Election Day"
    Does he really not understand the difference between a machine tallying votes and manually counting votes?

    p3 He just repeats the claims of 2000 Mules while ignoring Barr's dismantling of its thesis in his testimony - essentially, "Obviously in a population of millions of people you will have multiple hundreds of people passing by multiple drop boxes". So much for rebutting.

    p12 "This is merely an attempt to stop a man that is leading in every poll, against both Republicans and Democrats by wide margins". This coming literally days after a well-publicised poll where DeSantis is leading Trump as Republican nominee for 2024. Does he think no-one reads the news? You've got to admire the chutzpah.

    Very True, Atp...
    Trump is totally ignoring the FACT that (after the Jan.6 Hearings) his chances for the '24 GOP Nomination have Totally Evaporated...
    They are Slim and None (And, Slim just died of a Heart Attack)...

    In Colorado, Republican activists at last weekend’s Western Conservative Summit voted 71%-67% for DeSantis over Trump in a straw poll for their preferred candidate for 2024, his second successive win (participants could offer multiple responses).
    DeSantis also won a straw poll of Wisconsin Republicans last month with 38% to Trump’s 32%.
    “There is no real party standard-bearer at the moment, and DeSantis in many eyes is starting to define the post-Trump party"

    I don't agree - he may be slipping but he's clearly still very influential. He's also a kind of genius at destroying people by means fair or foul. So I wouldn't count him out.

    No one but the most left wing Democrats gives a flying [expletive] about the ongoing 1/6 political theatre. Like Dem strategist James Carville said back in 1992, "It's the economy stupid."

    Donald Trump, just go away. You're right, this stupid thing is a farce but you're not part of the solution either. The solution is someone 30-mid-40's who can bring new ideas and solutions to America.

    I wonder which "solutions" Trump has to fix inflation. Probably the same "solutions" to fix healthcare. It's "easy", right? Of course, he never mentions any specifics other than "Dems bad". And the righties fall for it every single time.

    Actually, most Democrats would love to see Trump get the GOP Nomination...
    With all of his baggage, Trump would be the easiest candidate to beat...
    DeSantis as the nominee would have an exponentially better chance of winning (especially if Biden ran again)...
    I would love to see a Primary Fight Between DeSantis and Trump...

    It's a very sad country that can only come up with a moronic dick head like Trump and an old fart like Biden to run as President.
    We really need a viable third party, cause the two we've got have really jumped the shark.

    That won’t happen until tanked choice becomes a thing; which won’t happen because it would require the two parties to willingly give up power.

    Have you not heard? Biden is upset about polling lower than Trump. That means if they were running today, Trump most likely would win against Biden.

    Third parties split the actual vote between the two major parties. They don't win elections.
