Quotes from the news wire:
If somebody really thinks that this narrative of January 6 that some are trying to push is actually going to be the one written in the history books -- it's not. It's just a question of when, is it sooner or later, but it's coming. So I wouldn't want to be on -- the one out there on TV pushing the' Big Lie' and think somebody is going to eventually be proud of what I was doing.
What we can do as a party is take a stand and say,' You don't belong in our conference.' That's what I think we should do, if there was a kind of organic, within-the-conference movement to oust Liz Cheney, certainly we can have the same kind of movement to oust somebody that is trying to compare wearing a mask to the Nazis.
Liz Cheney is saying exactly what House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the day of the insurrection. Liz Cheney has just consistently been saying it. A few weeks later House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy changed to attacking other people. I think what the reality is, as a party, we need to have an internal look and a full accounting as to what led to January 6, right now it is basically the Titanic. We're in the middle of this slow sink.
If you run for office and if you get elected to Congress, you've got to be willing to lose it, you know, or else you can't do the job. I think a lot of people have their egos and their entire personalities tied up with being a member of Congress. And all the perks that go along with that. I think they need to be willing to walk away from it, and I think they need to think not just about the next election or the next news cycle, I think they need to think about history. I think they need to think about how they're going to be judged and, you know, what future generations are going to say about this moment.
If you think the Donald Trump thing in the long term is going to be the winning coalition and not somebody like me that's conservative but doesn't offend people, and doesn't go out and attack and say that you owe me everything, and doesn't incite insurrections -- then we'll be a minority party forever.
She stood up and kind of gave a bit of contriteness, but then it pivoted into,' they're coming after you next', at least half the room didn't of course stand up and applaud her. That's something, I guess. But you know, to see people at the end of it just be all in on Marjorie Taylor Greene. Look, I get it. She's a Republican in your mind and you want to defend her, but my goodness, look at what's been said.
What Ido know is that whether or not the president was briefed, frankly, is irrelevant because the intelligence agencies could not yet agree on this, if this is something, you need to have large agreement or at least [agreement] to a point of significant confidence to be able to take action.Otherwise, in theory, if its not true and youre reacting against the Russians, think of the damage of that.
It took a few years, but the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act will finally make its way to the President's desk to become law. And for the Syrian people, this means there will finally be some justice brought to the evil Assad regime and those who act on his behalf, we know these sanctions will not end the pain and sorrow that this war in Caesar Syria has caused, nor recover the many lives lost, but the message of the Caesar Bill is loud and clear. We will not turn a blind eye to the atrocities in Caesar Syria, and we will make sure those responsible will pay for their crimes.
There was no yelling, there was no screaming, no throwing things, so yeah, it was a good meeting, i'm sure we'll have probably many more of these, and again it's an opportunity to have a very big moment here and it's an opportunity for people to have their say, and we may not always agree but hopefully we can get along.
If you ever have any doubt whether the Cold War is back on, I mean these are the kind of maneuvers that show that it is, i think there has been a re-establishment, probably not to the intensity it was in the '80s, but a re-establishment of, in essence, kind of Cold War principles, where, you know, at that time, it was all a show of force from both sides.
