'The party's over':  GOP  strategist warns that 'good Republicans' can’t defeat ' lunatics ' in 2022’s  GOP

Although Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska isn’t a full-fledged Never Trumper like the Washington Post’s Max Boot, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, attorney George Conway or former   GOP   strategist Rick Wilson, the conservative senator has been highly critical of former President


"Trump let all the termites into the basement of the house. The Big Lie and the election deniers and all the assorted  lunatics  who have taken up residence in the  GOP  and are now its base must be pushed out."

Raw Story by  Tom Boggioni Sep 2022


According to Donald Trump, his speech at a Pennsylvania rally on Saturday night was such a hit that attendees begged him to keep talking after two hours.

In his customary manner in which he relates tales of fans coming up to him with " tears in their eyes " to thank him for what he is doing for America , the former president claimed his fans couldn't get enough of him in Wilkes-Barre.


Draper sets the stage for January 6 by highlighting a number of instances of right-wing violence that presaged it. One arrived on December 4, 2016, when a heavily armed 28-year-old man named Edgar Maddison Welch drove from North Carolina to attack a pizzeria in Northwest Washington, D.C., called Comet Ping Pong. The owner of the pizzeria, James Alefantis, had been mentioned in the emails of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair, John Podesta, which ignited a frenzy of speculation about the pizza joint’s putative role in a pedophile ring led by Clinton. Welch, a devotee of 4chan, fired off several shots in the pizzeria as he searched for a torture dungeon that did not exist. He was arrested. No one was injured. The incident seemed faintly ridiculous at the time. But the lunatic mind-set that inspired “Pizzagate,” as it was called, never really went away. Indeed, almost a year later, an aspiring Facebook influencer instructed her followers about a new conspiracy website showing, she wrote, “that John Podesta is a pedophile and pizza gate is real.” Her name was Marjorie Taylor Greene.
