When ‘America First’ is a ticket to last place
Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., Is shocked, SHOCKED, that anyone associates him with the “America First” caucus agenda, although he used that phrase in his keynote address at a political action conference America First in February. If you can judge a person by the company they run, the conference was hosted by someone who said, “Whites are done being bullied” and spoke approvingly of the crowd that stormed the United States Capitol on January 6. one cameo was former Rep Steve King, R-Iowa, who once wondered what was so terrible about phrases like “white nationalist, white supremacist, and western civilization.” Tellingly, none of Gosar’s Arizona colleagues had much to say.

When Greene’s bravado was frightened by reprimands from other GOP members, she blamed the usual suspects, saying she had not seen the “draft proposal at the staff level of an outside group” and mumbling something about the media taking it out of context. Now she’s off on her latest adventure that has little to do with her constituents in Georgia, announcing a scheduled appearance at a “Back the Blue and Freedom Rally” in Columbus, Ohio, a community trying to sort out the details. and the fallout. police shot 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant.
