Trump and Kushner thought they could ignore the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and just make nice with the autocrats of the Middle East. That’s not an effective path to peace.
Trump officials often insist they didn’t get more credit for achieving “peace in the Middle East.” We are now seeing why.

"Once upon a time, Stefanik viewed Trump as misogynistic (at least in his rhetoric) and willfully negligent in how he handled a serious threat to the nation," @DavidCornDC writes. "Now she has become one of his most devoted lieutenants." bit.ly/3uDO2PI

What do you do with people like this?
Rep. Andrew Clyde of Georgia says there was no insurrection on January 6th, and likens the people entering the Capitol on TV footage to tourists. Says the only insurrection he's ever witnessed was the Russia investigation.

And there's no problem with North Korea, either.
On Sept 15, Trump boasted that the Abraham Accords would “mark the dawn of a new Middle East” and lead to “comprehensive peace across the entire region.”   Fast forward eight months and that boast appears even more risible now than it did at the time. wapo.st/3eD5bn8

.@DrPaulGosar is vying to be leader of the Brownshirt Caucus
New low — Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), a promoter of the Big Lie, just mounted a full-throated defense of the Capitol rioters. He called them "peaceful patriots," and condemned the fact that they are now under DOJ investigation. He also decried that some of them are in jail.

There is so much wrong going on here.
After the vote on Liz Cheney, Republican Byron Donalds of Florida used this analogy: "If you had a member of the Democratic leadership who said they don’t believe in climate change anymore, would they stay in leadership? I don’t think so.” nymag.com/intelligencer/2021…

Lots of tense, heated moments at today's House hearing on the 1/6 insurrection, with former Trump officials testifying. This was a particularly heated exchange w/ Trump's former Acting Sec of Defense:
Wow. An angry Ro Khanna grills former Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, "Will you apologize to the American public for what happened on your watch? Will you apologize to the troops for what happened on your watch?"

Former acting defense secretary Christopher Miller on the 1/6 attack on the US Capitol: "I agree that it was an act of terrorism." Miller was appointed by Trump. Take that, Trump cult.

The GOP is cracked. At a hearing on the 1/6 insurrection, Rep. Clay Higgins calls Democrats in control of Congress "a disturbing faction" that endangers America and claims the 1/6 attack on the Capitol cannot be discussed without reference to BLM protests.

Asked if 140 police officers were injured during the 1/6 attack on the US Capitol, former acting defense secretary Chris Miller replies, "I don't know." Really? That's all he has to say about this?

The problem is not that there's a nutball saying crazy stuff like this. The problem is that there are people in the room--Republican/conservative voters--who believe him.
Lin Wood states that Trump is still the president and that the military would call on him “for the code if they need a first strike.” He also states he believes Trump signed the Insurrection Act in secret.

In subservience to Trump, the House Republicans put on a Soviet-like show trial.
According to multiple sources and confirmed by a person close to Cheney, there was no roll call/secret ballot. They removed Cheney by voice vote
