The garden of good and evil was mostly evil that night. I speak of the night all the President’s sycophants came together for a meeting. That meeting was described in the January 6 hearing as totally unhinged.

Among the VERY motley crew were Michael Flynn, Rudy, Sidney Powell, and Pat Cipollone, who rushed over to break up the human horror show that was this meeting. Also there was Patrick Byrne, former CEO of overstock.

The committee played some of Cippollone’s testimony where he describes his shock at finding all the crazies there, with Trump. “I walked in. I saw General Flynn, Sidney Powell sitting there,” he said. This was the infamous meeting where Kracken admirer Sidney Powell tried her best to get named special counsel.

And the meeting devolved into a mess of name-calling, insults, and cursing. These are the people who besmirched the White House floors — and whom Trump felt the most comfortable with.

Here’s the thing, though. It didn’t work. Our system held. That is because — there are so many more of us than them. And that should make people feel better, not worse. I know some of you are still scared. You worry all the time about democracy. And I understand that. But this is also a time to feel gratitude.


We should feel gratitude for the January 6 committee, the Capitol Police, the Senators, and Congresspeople who fought for the truth to be heard. It is a victory not just for us but for our founding fathers and all the soldiers who fought and died for our right to a free America. This is an America where we “let freedom ring” and celebrate it. That is who we still are, and we must never forget it.
