GOP-Orban Love Affair/Q&A May 20 1-2pmET
Welcome back to Lucid. I’m back from Rome and writing this from my deck in the Hudson Valley. When I opened the umbrella a small frog fell out —a sign that outdoor season has officially started. I share my view with you in the photo below.
Mark your calendars for our next Q&A, this Friday, May 20, 1-2pmET. You will receive a link to register for the Zoom call on Friday morning. Registration is free and your information will not be used for any other purpose. The calls are not recorded. Ask a question, or just listen in. I look forward to seeing you then.
Tonight I will be on MSNBC’s The Last Word in the 11pmET hour, speaking about the Republican turn to authoritarianism and their adulation of autocrat Viktor Orban, as evidenced in their choice to hold this year’s CPAC conference in Budapest.
If you've been a Lucid subscriber for a while, you are well informed about the GOP-Orban love affair. Here is my August 2021 piece "Tucker Carlson and Victor Orban Plan Our Fascist Future," about Tucker Carlson broadcasting for a week from Budapest. And here is my September 2021 essay on GOP luminaries who attended Orban's Demographic Summit.
At the Summit, Mike Pence stated that he hoped abortion rights in the US would be overturned soon.
I’ll have more on the US situation, along with my latest thoughts on Russia’s war of annihilation against Ukraine, in my Friday post for you.
Until then, stay well and stay lucid.
