To be more accurate, and as the article implies, they are backing pro-business, anti-tax, pro-fossil fuel Republicans over Democrats, not election deniers per se.

Watch: Founder of Gab Andrew Torba warns GOP to not ‘disavow or condemn us’ because ‘Christian nationalists are the Republican party’

Far right wing extremist, Christian nationalist, antisemite Andrew Torba, the founder of Gab, the social media platform that is popular with white supremacists, is telling the Republican Party that "80 percent" of its base is Christian nationalists, and warns them to not "condemn" or "disavow" them.

Torba has ties to far right Christian nationalist Doug Mastriano, the Republican party's nominee for governor of Pennsylvania. Torba has also "endorsed" Arizona GOP secretary of state nominee Mark Finchem, an election-denier and member of the far-right antigovernment group Oath Keepers, and election-denying Arizona GOP state Senator Wendy Rogers.

 
 

'QMaga': How QAnon, MAGA and 'Christian nationalism' have pushed the GOP into 'madness'

During his 2020 campaign, former President Donald Trump made a point of being vague when discussing the far-right QAnon movement. Trump refrained from overtly promoting QAnon and its conspiracy theories, but he wouldn’t say anything critical of them either and claimed that he “didn’t know much about” their movement. 

Times have changed. Trump is now openly promoting QAnon and is using exact phrases associated with the group, including “the storm” and their slogan “where we go one, we go all.” And Trump is hardly the only MAGA Republican who is embracing QAnon.

From NPR article on The U.S. and the Holocaust mini-series.  The final five minutes feature the Trump supporters and their enablers.  Watch that if nothing else in the series.

"It's not until the final five minutes that the story is brought fully up to date. But those final sounds and images that conclude The U.S. and the Holocaust — scenes with which we're all too familiar, of hate crimes and hate-filled marches — connect the past to the present without Coyote, or anyone else, having to say a word. Once again, Burns and company have made history come to life — and reminded us that our life, right now, is indeed history in the making."  https://www.npr.org/2022/09/15/1123134723/ken-burns-the-u-s-and-the-holocaust-review-history-wwii

Sorry, but that final  montage of recent events as if they  had some  deep  connection  to  the Nazis was  pretty lame and  about as subtle as a

sledgehammer.  It's  like a Classics  Illustrated reading  of  history. I can  almost see  a bunch  of right  wingers in the early 1970s running

news clips from  all the crazy  things  that happened in the late 1960s and saying  that the country  is headed  for  a commie  takeover.

Not  well reasoned at all. And the outsized  attention given to Anne Frank was so.......obvious. One of  the PBS stations  showed an episode

of Secrets of the Dead from 2020 about  the question of  bombing Auschwitz after Burns' documentary and who should show up but some

of the  same talking heads  from The U.S. and the Holocaust.

Someone said that he did indeed serve in the military but only in the Middle East loading planes bound for Afghanistan.  He added that he should have just run on that instead of inflating his record.

You might wonder why they are even trolling this source ...

Republican's 'Commitment to America' video is filled stock images and videos taken in Russia and Ukraine  

Republican House members released its 'Commitment to America' video on Friday. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, 57, released the video, claiming that the 'Democrats have led America off-track.' However, several images throughout the video were actually stock images from Russia and Ukraine. An image of a drilling rig and a child playing in a field with a toy airplane was reportedly taken in Russia's Volgograd region. Also reportedly featured is a European grocery store and a man carrying a bag through a cornfield in Ukraine.

As usual, Twitter tweet is insufficient to make a valid judgement.  Who is he speaking about, what agency, what records?  Need the whole story or none at all.

  • Ohio GOP candidate J.R. Majewski has come up with a new defense about his combat records.
  • At a Friday rally, Majewski said records related to a deployment to Afghanistan were "classified."
  • All available military records showed that Majewski never served in Afghanistan, according to the AP.

Much better than a tweet from twitter.

Majewski would also have been issued a DD-214 which would have indicated all his awards as well as service time in a combat zone.  This is the document that the VA uses to determine eligibility for certain disabilities, such as the recently added burn pit exposures.

'Serious cognitive issues': Former GOP lawmaker accuses colleagues of mental instability

In a new book by former Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA), in his last days serving in the House he admits he grew more and more disturbed by the wild ravings of two of his colleagues who were all too willing to believe any conspiracy rumor that came across their desks as they defended Donald Trump.

Riggleman, who left Congress and subsequently accepted a position as an investigator for the House select committee looking into the Jan 6 insurrection, has roiled members of the committee with the book, "The Breach: The Untold Story of the Investigation into January 6th," which is being published today.

Marjorie Taylor Greene said there is not "one single Republican" that has "ever aligned" with Nazism. MTG spoke at a White Nationalist rally hosted by Nick Fuentes: a White Nationalist who marched at the Charlottesville rally with side that chanted "Jews will not replace us."

Twenty years ago, I wrote an article predicting the emergence of "unpatriotic conservatives." The piece caused a ruckus at the time, but it's been all too sadly proven prophetic.

Calling the leaks in the Nord Stream pipelines "a potential midterm election operation," Charlie Kirk says US intelligence agencies are "guilty until proven innocent in this situation. They're going to have to prove to us it wasn't them"

It was the same with abortion.  A case of the dog catching the car.

I think @SecretaryPete said it best recently: For the GOP, the problem of increased immigration is more useful to them than the solution is. That’s why they stoke the problem with cruel, high profile stunts but offer no real solutions.
