This is the most offensive thing I've ever heard.
No one should ever question the loyalty or professionalism of the Texas National Guard. @TexasGuard
I authorized more than 1,000 to go to DC.
I'll never do it again if they are disrespected like this.
Governor Hypocrite sent NG troops to "keep an eye on" our military during the whole Jade Helm mess, but screams bloody murder because National Guard troops are vetted for inauguration.
Me thinks Gregory doth protest too much.
Oh and at least 32,000 Texans dead from Covid.

@bartongellman on Trump's attempt to overthrow the government
“Many politicians and pundits initially saw Trump’s refusal to concede as pathetic, delusional, and mostly harmless.”
“The official guidance from Biden’s camp was keep calm and carry on.”
The political DC establishment made a grave mistake. It almost cost us the ballgame.
The terrorists nearly reached the elected officials #2, 3, and 4 - Pence, Pelosi, and Grassley - and could have killed, in addition to the police officer, everyone in the line of presidential succession between Trump and Pompeo.
Garland knows his shit. Read it.
(THREAD) Media has yet to do a deep dive on precisely what Trump *said* in his January 6 speech in DC—a speech now called an "incitement to insurrection," and the basis for an article of impeachment coming Monday. This thread unpacks the speech. I hope you'll read on and RETWEET.
Seth has been doing this Twitter thing for a while. This thread, still ongoing, may be his finest hour.
CBS News internal guidance also advises staff to avoid the coup or insurrection label: "We don’t need to go out of our way to give this an overly dramatic label, This story doesn’t need that. We should not be calling this an attempted coup or a terrorist attack."
This is why I don't watch cable news, generally speaking. They have refused to call this what it has been for years. Not just yesterday.
NEW: The Harris County region officially crossed the state's hospitalization threshold triggering #COVID19 reopening rollbacks. Honestly, this is just another milestone on the road to a catastrophe unless each of us acts. We can't rely on a small occupancy rollback. Do your part.
Unfortunately I fear your words will fall on deaf ears. No one is listening
The attempt by 12 senators to overturn the election and by the president to “find” votes would be right at home in the totalitarian states I saw firsthand and studied earlier in my career. That they’re doing it with a straight face is dangerous. Texas and 🇺🇲 deserve better.
I live in neighboring Montgomery County now (aka MAGAland) but I was able to vote for Lina in the 18 midterms. She is a patriot and a rising star.
1. A brief thread on why we should not panic but should worry, even be a bit...alarmed.
I've been speaking with former Trump Administration officials and with other former senior national security types who remain plugged in to the Pentagon.
Read this. And stay vigilant. This is not over yet.
Trump’s latest stunt had nothing to do with pork. He couldn’t care less about the size of the checks. He was mad at Mitch McConnell and John Thune for shutting down the talk of a takeover on Jan. 6
In the latest newsletter:
Of course. Remember, he's 100% transactional. He doesn't sign that bill unless he got something out of it.
I fear he may have finally secured necessary support in the Senate to attempt his legislative putsch. It will fail, but scary all the same.
Prediction: The president will, as he would see it, bestow a Christmas gift on his humble if often ungrateful subjects, by (having made clear his objections to this inferior product of the swamp) signing the COVID relief and omnibus spending legislation this afternoon.
Republicans have a clear favorite: Doug Jones, the outgoing Alabama Democratic senator who is on Biden's short list to head the Justice Department.
"Doug would sail through," said Sen. John Kennedy, a Louisiana Republican who sits on Senate Judiciary.
Of course. This is what I have been saying all along. Biden would rather play kumbaya with Republicans than hold Trump to account
1. This thread is based on recent conversations with people whose information and judgment I trust, who in turn have spoken candidly with Trump appointees still on the inside.
Here's a question: Why did Trump and Barr, when they negotiated Barr's departure, settle on Dec. 23?
To all those who say it can’t happen here. Read this. Kristol is pretty reliable.
There’s a question on the form you fill out for a security clearance (SF-86) that all enablers of this will henceforth have to check “yes” on.
“Have you now or have you ever been a member of an organization dedicated to the violent overthrow of the US government?”
Former candidate for US Congress and Senate from Texas.
AXIOS: Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller ordered a Pentagon-wide halt to cooperation with the transition of President-elect Biden, shocking officials across the Defense Department, senior administration officials tell Axios @mikeallen
Prepare yourselves. An attempt of martial law is coming.
"Let's make no mistake, our nation is under attack right now and it appears to be ongoing by the way... The Russians were able to find a single point of failure in our supply chain... It is a national defense failure" - @FrankFigliuzzi1 w/ @NicolleDWallace
If there is one show I’d suggest everyone watch it’s Deadline White House. Just one more reason why
Biden says that 7 Senate Republicans, “mostly senior,” have called him tonight. He spoke to “one of the most senior members” who expressed a willingness to work on China and infrastructure. It’s going to take 6-8 months but GOP will work w him, “you’re going to be surprised.”
Thread. America is screwed six ways to Sunday if this is what Biden really thinks.
Why is Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger working so hard to add drop boxes and take other steps to make it harder for Republicans to win. Is he really that intimidated by Stacey Abrams?
This tweet is yet another example in an endless stream of them of why I am begging Joe Biden to not play bipartisan politics with Republicans.
It doesn't work. They tried so hard to steal an election and they want to end democracy any way they can. Because power.
