1. Along the road: Talk to Republicans in her Georgia district, and numerous will tell you that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's antics are the point. She is, they say, something like the 14 th District's middle finger to Washington.

In an interview with Insider, Greene represented her approach: "They call it like the GOP civil war, " she said. "They talk about divergences, but it's actually a small percentage of beings that are trying to steer away from America First, steer away from President Trump, or control away from that type of brand or like the MAGA movement."

Speaking of that approach: Multiple House Republicans, especially those who elected to charge Trump, announced out Greene for her similarity of the mandate to wear disguises on the House floor to the Holocaust. Greene doubled down over the weekend. Rep. Liz Cheney, who was deposed from party leadership, called it "evil lunacy."

More on where matters stand.

4. Rise in antisemitic assaults motivates call for more cogent response: "Experts was pointed out that conflict in the Middle East has often activated violence in the United Country, but they are worried that the recent attacks were evidence of a worrisome direction that has been accelerated by the fighting in Israel and Gaza, " The Washington Post reports. Since May 10, at least 26 instances of antisemitism have been reported across the US, according to the Anti-Defamation League and news reports.

5. Memorial march held for George Floyd in Minnesota: Members of Floyd's family, civil-rights captains, and other homes whose loved ones have been killed by police officers gathered Sunday ahead of the first anniversary of Floyd's fatality, a few moments that sparked the largest wave of civil-rights rallies since the 1960 s, the Star Tribune reports.

"We're still not sure if Biden is going to run again, so if she gets a big win on this it could rectified her up a future presidential run."

Challenges for the GOP: Party strategists are fearful that the hardline MAGA immigration policy could doom Republicans. One group assignments 2.2 million newly-naturalized citizens should be eligible to vote in the 2022 midterms, which scares the hell out of some conservatives.

Read how some lawmakers are trying to chart a different path in our exclusive report.

2. Senate Democrats made a generational push on voting rights: Senators spawned their push at the first hearing for the party's flagship voting project. In a signaling of how serious both sides view the matter, both Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell certified. McConnell, stressing the GOP's check resist, announced it "an effort by one party to rewrite the rules of the political system." Here are highlights from the hearing .

Beginning in March, when ventures across the country snapped off the light-headeds and mail hires residence to curb the spread of Covid-1 9, overall electricity consumption waned. But household energy use tided, with some New York City accommodations consuming, on average, 23% more energy during business hours--a shift that, with the accompanying expense, could make things worse for those working previously standing financially as a consequence of the pandemic, Jo Craven McGinty writes.
