Greene and Gosar increasingly isolated in Hill GOP after speaking at a white nationalist event
[ Editor’s Note: As some anonymous guy once said, “You just can’t make this shit up”. Gosh, are these signs the Trump Repubs are ‘beginning’ to self-destruct when Biden has the lowest poll numbers yet, which he really hasn’t earned yet.
Now that the US wants a war with Putin, we have Trump playing the contrarian. And the war lobby has watched Kiev shell Donbas civilians for eight years without the slightest concern or pity.
This sadly includes our military. Here we have a few hundred unfortunate dead Ukrainians after the US has helped slaughter countless Syrians and Yemenis, so I see some selective sympathy going out the door.
Trump seems to be oblivious that he is a dead man walking politically, financially, and on criminal charges, and in the running for the most criminally charged ex-head of state in history.
Please don’t tell Trump I said this, as he might demand a ribboned medallion for it. What an irony it will be if Trump takes the Republican party down with him, for company.
With only Clarence Thomas hanging tight with Trump on the release of his archive records, I would bet that the others want a judicial life after Trump and not disgrace themselves along with him.
I don’t mean to be crude but I can’t think of a better way to say this. The US needs a full bore enema to get rid of the Trump constipation when we have suffered enough already. As Moses said in Exodus, “Let my people go”, say Amen… Jim W. Dean ]

Reps. Paul Gosar and Marjorie Taylor Greene are on an island among their fellow GOP lawmakers after appearing with a white nationalist group over the weekend.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and a host of other Republican leaders are condemning party members who engage with white nationalist groups, days after Gosar (R-Ariz.) and Greene (R-Ga.) spoke at the extremist-backed America First Political Action Conference.
It’s the most serious sign of isolation yet for the two Trump-allied conservatives, as party leaders criticize their actions and decline to defend them.
When asked if he plans to take action against Gosar and Greene, McCarthy said on Monday evening he would “have a discussion” with the duo. McCarthy described far-fright fringe organizer Nick Fuentes’s language as “appalling” and said the “language that he uses about antisemitism and the chanting for Putin is unacceptable.”
“I definitely want to disassociate myself from it,” said Senate Minority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.). “It’s unacceptable.”
Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) went more forcefully after Fuentes: “Nick Fuentes is an asshole.” Roy added that he is “frustrated by colleagues who have chosen to associate in this situation.”
McCarthy “needs to do a press conference today denouncing Greene, Gosar, Fuentes, announcing they are out of the conference, there’s no room for this,” Kinzinger added.
