INSIDE: Mike Pence ... Mike Johnson ... Matthew Perry
Thank you for the roundup and especially for the link to Dominique De Villepin’s assessment of the Israel-Hamas War.
This is a great roundup of important news stories today. With Trump’s continuous violation of gag orders, and the alarming sensitivity of these documents he stole, we are already at a point where he is not being treated as a “regular“ citizen. I just don’t know what it’s going to take to hold this extremely dangerous, unhinged threat to our democracy accountable for his crimes. On another note, that video of Mike Pence almost made me lose my breakfast, Oy!
Just as no one in the US or UK listened to M. de Villepin wise counsel during the runup to the invasion of Iraq, I'm afraid his words today vis-à-vis Israel/Hamas/Palestinians will fall on deaf ears. "The West" is a conceit that has outlived its usefulness and realities, but through rank hubris and racism lives on, to oppressed peoples everywhere great regret.
I’d really like you to address what Bulwark did with Mike Johnson. The story of Michael (adopted/not adopted) is interesting., but the radicalization of the GOP scares the crap out of me. New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), America’s Taliban.
