Ah yes, it's all 4D chess.
No it's really basic.

You made an obvious and transparent attempt to portray the most odious member of the GOP as its standard bearer in an attempt to discredit them.

The same thing the GOP do with AOC.

It's all very tedious and leads to polarisation. She is by no means an even mildly important Republic. Soz.

It's not so much what she stands for but about how they handle her and this situation, which is very public.

As with the Cheney vote the Republicans seem to be afraid to publicly go against Trumpism

Dems are just meant to leave the raging anti semite Qanon lunatic be? Not use it as a cudgel against the GOP?
Power play, testing the boundaries.

The same with the relief bill where the 10 GOP senators came with a severely watered down proposal to see if the Dems would waste their time "negotiating" with the GOP who has no plan to approve any version of the bill 60-40 in the senate
And with this the Republicans can claim they voted against the process that was followed rather than the resolution to remove Greene

Disappointing performance from the Republicans

The Dems put it all out there doing what was right, knowing that today's decision will come back and bite them in the ass in the future but they did it.

Exactly. It's just a way to keep the bases in line while both parties remain firmly in the thrall of the same neo-whatever ideologies that they've been championing for decades. The "rise" of AOC's or Green's politics within their respective parties is illusory in any meaningful sense.

This is why it was retarded when people were saying Joe Biden was going to be a Trojan horse for socialism, and also why Trump's presidency (from a practical/policy standpoint) hardly deviated from the GOP playbook. The political establishment is firmly entrenched, it has its way of doing things and a couple of tweets and some grandstanding isn't going to change that, and none of these zealots have a scintilla of the nous required to alter or dismantle it. Which is why I don't care for midwits like AOC or Trump holding office when despite their rhetoric they are incapable of doing anything more than fanning the flames. Worst of both worlds -- ineffective and inflammatory.

People seem to really think these people are the ones writing legislation and making decisions. They aren't; this is done by think tanks, lobbyists, and advocacy groups (increasingly literally in the form of "model bills"). Politicians are there to market their brand and serve as lodestars to motivate voters to keep showing and continue consenting to this status quo. That's it.

I think, for the moment anyway, that the Republican right wing is taking the party further right, tonight's voting showed it. But both the GOP and the Dems in Congress are old and there's a groundswell of young millennials and Gen-Z coming through in both parties who believe in the same outcomes, they just disagree on how to achieve it.

I hope for the Democrats at least, there is change and progressives like AOC can influence policy at least. I really hope Trump starts his own populist movement and splits the Republicans.

You have the Hawleys and the Gaetzs who are under the influence of Trump but you also have the Backers (a youngster not in the house). Ideally you want these youngsters (of all ages) talking about solutions rather than just hammering heads in power plays

Great speech by McCarthy after he didn't make a decision. More than he ever said about Greene before today. And laying all Trump's failures at the Dems' door because they haven't done enough in two weeks.

Will any of that money be set aside to do something about the Jewish Space Lasers? She's calling Omar and Tlaib anti-semetic, so perhaps the 3 of them could form an unlikely coalition to combat the Jewish Space Lasers.

That's what I'm most worried about.

The GOP are completely hijacked by the Ultra-Right and they are f**ked. I reckon the GOP will turn into an 100% ultra right party, while the moderate elements of the party will either surrender or move to the Democrat party, or become independant.

The Democrat Party will move to the center, meaning its left wing may become rowdy at which point I don't know what they will do really.

Don't know if you would call them the ultra-right, but Greene said today that "this is the party of Donald Trump". And they won't censure her, but meanwhile the likes of Sasse, Cheney and so are being censured for voting for impeachment. The majority won't speak out against the orange one, and will peddle 'The Big Lie'.

So I think Greene is actually right about this, which makes me wonder if she also right about about the Jewish Space Lasers. The verdict is in.

Attn Ali's Choice: Can you change the title of this thread to "What is next for the Trump Party"? Cheers. :thumbup:

What i mean is that, as with every personality cult, once that personality is out of the picture (in Trump's case, most likely his death of old age), the question of where does the party goes from there is critical to its survival.

Early days, but with the Wyoming GOP censuring Cheney and the Arizona GOP censuring McCain, along with the Texas GOP now openly calling for their state to leave the USA, it seems that post-Trump the GOP is moving to the far right as quickly as it can.

Granted that no one is ever going to try to reinvent the wheel. Voting for Trump didn't produce status quo, nor is Biden keeping status quo. There are things that can be changed quickly and those that needs consecutive presidencies to change. Lobbyists still have significant power but Biden has set the path away from fossil fuel against that poweful lobby group for example.

One of the most important tools of the president are his speeches. It sets the tone for the country. Trump was a great example of this.

Don't mistake not turning everything on it's head as not being able to make changes.

It's ugly. When idiology excuses any actions you know a country is screwed. At least Biden came out and stated even before the election the excesses of BLM and defund the police had really hurt the Dems. Who pushes back on the radical right of the Republicans who knows.

The GOP is dead. To be fair its been a gradual decline till now. Under Obama, they lost the plot with McConnell's obstruction. When more people vote to censure Cheney than voted against removing Marjorie Taylor Green from committees then you've become a far right wing party.

‘There’s nothing left’: Why thousands of Republicans are leaving the party

In the days after the January 6 attack on the Capitol, the phone lines and websites of local election officials across the country were jumping: Tens of thousands of Republicans were calling or logging on to switch their party affiliations.

In California, more than 33,000 registered Republicans left the party during the three weeks after the Washington riot. In Pennsylvania, more than 12,000 voters left the GOP in the past month, and more than 10,000 Republicans changed their registration in Arizona.

An analysis of January voting records by The New York Times found that nearly 140,000 Republicans had quit the party in 25 states that had readily available data (19 states do not have registration by party). Voting experts said the data indicated a stronger-than-usual flight from a political party after a presidential election, as well as the potential start of a damaging period for GOP registrations as voters recoil from the Capitol violence and its fallout.

I think that's true from the Democrats just because all the leadership is so old and power has become so centralized in the legislature that party leadership means everything, so after Pelosi, Schumer, Biden, Hoyer, Clyburn, etc., you're going to get major generational change. I think the Republicans have already been changing the past decade. Even getting into real policy that matters for example, they're not nearly so gung-ho free trade as they were when George W. Bush was president. Think most Republicans think like Democrats of old that just screws them over in the end. (Amazingly, modern-day Republicans AND Democrat rank-and-file have determined Ross Perot was the correct one in 1992.)

That's at best a very misleading story but is most likely just dead wrong on the journalist's part. More Democrats are deregistering from being Democrats than Republicans deregistering from being Republicans. You can go to Ballot Access News where the writer reports registration figures as they get updated all the time. Most states that do party registration have released numbers updated this year. The Democrats' state registration numbers with an exception here and there always go down, while Republicans are either going down a small amount or have a minor increase.

I'm going to pull the 4 most recent registration numbers, but you can go through his posting history and see recently published numbers and percentages for dozens of states. http://ballot-access.org/

Pro-Trump state senator and gubernatorial candidate Amanda Chase (R-VA) has been required to sit behind plexiglass after refusing to wear a mask, claiming with no evidence that she has a health condition that prevents her from wearing one. Numerous doctors have avowed that such 'conditions' are so rare as to be virtually nonexistent. Chase was censured by the Virginia state Senate last month and stripped of her committee assignments for a ‘pattern of unacceptable conduct,’ including refusing to apologize for calling the deadly insurgents who attacked the Capitol ‘patriots.’ She is now suing the Senate over the vote.

I see they've been censuring senators who didn't vote along party lines while performing there sworn duty to deliver "impartial justice".

All they got to do is continue to feed the public that the Dems are 'socialist' and coming after their guns etc. Easy win.

Former President Trump won the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) straw poll on Sunday, with 55 percent of respondents saying they would vote for him in a hypothetical 2024 primary.

55% seems pretty low given that this was a conference made up of Trump supporters

It's ugly. When idiology excuses any actions you know a country is screwed. At least Biden came out and stated even before the election the excesses of BLM and defund the police had really hurt the Dems. Who pushes back on the radical right of the Republicans who knows.

Anybody that pays attention to US politics.

There were Republicans who voted to impeach Trump.
