Thomas Friedman:


. . . “Denying the legitimacy of our last election is becoming a prerequisite for being elected as a Republican in 2022,” observed Gautam Mukunda, host of Nasdaq’s “World Reimagined” podcast . . .

. . . Think about that for a second. To be a leader in today’s G.O.P. . . . you have to accept everything Trump has said about the election — without a shred of evidence — and ignore everything his own attorney general, F.B.I. director and election security director said . . .

What kind of deformed party will such a dynamic produce? A party so willing to be marinated in such a bald-faced lie will lie about anything, including who wins the next election and every one after that . . . 


Perhaps the most important column you’ll read all year.   (Thanks, Lev.)



On a related topic, check out The Fall Of Civilizations, starting with Episode 1.  Beautifully shot and fascinating.  It, too, makes you think.  (Thanks, Andy.)



And (if all that weren’t fun enough) . . .

PRKR:  Last we heard, ParkerVision’s jury trial against Qualcomm had been postponed from July 6 to “November or December, if then,” because of the judge’s workload.  I was heartened to learn yesterday that the judge recently denied Qualcomm’s request for a Hearing to discuss the schedule of required deadlines that would have led up to that July 6 trial.  Those deadlines, he ruled, still stand.  I’m neither a lawyer nor a tea-leaf reader, but this gives me the sense Judge Byron is serious about the trial, even though he had to push it back.
