Sebastian Gorka has found a new home. It's called the "MAGA Coalition" — a new outside group to support political candidates that will "compete against globalist corporatists interests."

Little is known about the group. A source familiar with Gorka's arrangements tells me he's signing on as "chief strategist," the same title his former boss Steve Bannon held when the two worked together in the White House.

Gorka's first outing with the group: He's co-headlining a rally with Sarah Palin in Montgomery, Alabama on Thursday night. The Palin-Gorka rally will promote Roy Moore, the controversial anti-establishment candidate running against incumbent Sen. Luther Strange.

The MAGA Coalition is co-sponsoring the Palin-Gorka rally with Great America Alliance, the Bannon-aligned outside group.

Why this matters: Think about this. A month ago, Gorka and Steve Bannon were working in President Trump's White House. Now they are preparing to go head-to-head against the president to support a candidate who is loathed by the same establishment that originally loathed Trump.

The backdrop: Some of the noisiest elements of Trump's base — including Breitbart — view the Alabama contest as a flashpoint in their war against Mitch McConnell. Luther Strange is McConnell's chosen candidate and Trump has put his weight behind him, first with an endorsement, and now with plans to hold a rally in Alabama on Saturday night to give Strange a last minute boost before next Tuesday's election. Moore currently leads Strange by anywhere between 8 and 13 percentage points, according to independent polls.

Episode 7: Trump turns on Pence

Beginning on election night 2020 and continuing through his final days in office, Donald Trump unraveled and dragged America with him, to the point that his followers sacked the U.S. Capitol with two weeks left in his term. Axios takes you inside the collapse of a president with a special series.

Episode 7: Trump turns on Pence. Trump believes the vice president can solve all his problems by simply refusing to certify the Electoral College results. It's a simple test of loyalty: Trump or the U.S. Constitution.

"The end is coming, Donald."

The male voice in the TV ad boomed through the White House residence during "Fox & Friends" commercial breaks. Over and over and over. "The end is coming, Donald. ... On Jan. 6, Mike Pence will put the nail in your political coffin."

Big Tech's post-riot reckoning

The Capitol insurrection means the anti-tech talk in Washington is more likely to lead to action, since it's ever clearer that the attack was planned, at least in part, on social media.

Why it matters: The big platforms may have hoped they'd move to D.C.'s back burner, with the Hill focused on the Biden agenda and the pandemic out of control. But now, there'll be no escaping harsh scrutiny.

Why domestic terrorists are so hard to police online

Domestic terrorism has proven to be more difficult for Big Tech companies to police online than foreign terrorism.

The big picture: That's largely because the politics are harder. There's more unity around the need to go after foreign extremists than domestic ones — and less danger of overreaching and provoking a backlash.
