they also deviate substantively from them.

winter meeting Mullins is leading the effort to unseat Agema who has held onto his post despite calls from RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and state elected officials to step aside After a year of controversy Preibus as Michigan GOP Chair Bobby Schostak called for Agema’s resignation before last year’s winter meeting in Washington "For the good of the party we believe Dave Agema should resign” they said Agema has remained a thorn in their side ever since complicating party efforts to rebrand its image and appeal to a broader swath of voters Two years ago Agema posted an article on his Facebook page describe gays as “filthy” followed up with posts backing Russian anti-homosexuality laws and questioning whether Muslim-Americans have ever contributed to American society Just two weeks ago Agema reposted an article from a white supremacist magazine which he called “very interesting” Agema has long resisted calls to resign from a range of local and national political figures but this week’s efforts reflect the most organized movement to force him to step aside “Mr Agema may be able to ignore the voice of his home state but I am hopeful he will not be able to ignore the voice of the entire country” Mullins said in his letter The RNC rules do not include a specific provision detailing procedures for the removal of members all of whom are elected by state parties Mullins is backing a resolution at Wednesday’s Resolutions Committee meeting calling on Agema’s resignation that if passed would be voted on by the full RNC on Friday “I would suggest that we act as one and pass a resolution making it clear that Mr Agema’s abhorrent views and words have no place in our partyand that he in no way speaks for us” Mullins wrote “While he might retain his post he has lost the respect and esteem of his colleagues Indeed his actions have made him a pariah Anything short of this will allow Mr Agema to continue disgracing our Republican Party further impugn the integrity and good standing of the RNC” The Democratic Party is facing a similar controversy with one of its own Prominent Obama donor and Oregon DNC member Terry Bean remains a party leader despite facing criminal charges alleging he and his ex-boyfriend had sex with an 15-year-old boy The Democratic Party rules unlike the GOP’s include specific provisions for removing members Write to Zeke J Miller at zekemiller@timecomOn one hand the announcement that Saudi Arabia’s King Salman will not attend President Obama’s Camp David summit of Gulf Arab monarchs on Thursday despite having earlier accepted the invitation highlights all over again the considerable strains between Washington and Riyadh In the four months since Salman came to power the Kingdom has defied the US by starting one war in Yemen and reviving the most problematical elements in another sending new support to the Syrian opposition forces that include the Nusra Front an affiliate of al-Qaeda On the other hand the king’s absenceostensibly to deal with a brief cease-fire in Yemen but widely viewed as a snubwill give US officials a chance to size up the young fellow who the monarch has invested with immense new powers: His son also known as the Minister of Defense as well as president of the royal court Mohammad bin Salman may be 29 as some accounts have it or 34 the age offered in other reports Or somewhere in between The uncertainty speaks volumes about how little is known of the fresh-faced young prince derided by the Supreme Leader of arch-rival Iran as “an inexperienced youngster” “I don’t think anybody knows who he is” says F Gregory Gause III head of the international affairs department of the Texas A&M University Bush School of Government and Public Service “Hes never had a job where he had a counterpart with Americans in bilateral talks I think therell be plenty of people looking to size him up” The jobs that young bin Salman holds are known well enough Defense is a ministry awash in money “That’s where the rake-offs occur in the system” says Charles A Freeman who was US ambassador to Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War And head of the royal court is basically chief of staff putting the king’s son in daily charge of the ruling apparatus But the lack of information about bin Salman himself says a great deal about how fast the ground is shifting in the Middle Eastand especially in the House of Saud the family that has ruled the Kingdom since it appeared on the sands of the Arabian Peninsula in 1932 Saudi-watchers used to be the Middle East’s version of the Kremlinologists who studied the Soviet Union The players in both places moved at processional speed and change should it occur was glacial But then Salman took power following the January death of his brother Abdullah who ruled for 10 years “Basically whats happened in Saudi Arabia since the death of Abdullah is a series of political coup d’etats” says Freeman “In Arabia genealogy is ideology and lineage really is faction In any one-party system you have factions and in a one-family system you have factions” Despite Salman’s reputation as a conciliator between branches of the family since ascending to the throne Freeman says “he’s basically cut them all out” Salman 79 was expected to be the Saudi ruler who prepared for the inevitable transfer of power to a younger generation of Saudi princes But rather than casting the net wide he designated his nephew as the new Crown Princethe first grandson of the founding King Abdulaziz to be so namedand his own young son Mohammad as Deputy Crown Prince or second in line The nephew is already well known in Washington: Mohammad bin Nayef 55 has long been Interior Minister and run the Saudis’ counter-terror operations; he has twice met with President Obama in the Oval Office But in selecting him the king reached past hundreds of waiting princes “The model was kind of corporate leadership within a number of senior members of the older generation and they didn’t always get along and they didn’t always agree but they had a general corporate sense of where they wanted the country to go and it worked well for more than 50 years” says Gause “I thought the new king would try to recreate that kind of corporate responsibility across a number of people in the new generation but that’s obviously not what Salman wanted He’s privileged a couple of people and cut out a large number And how that affects family cohesion down the line will be interesting to watch” For now the war in Yemen aimed at a Shi’ite rebel group advancing in the neighboring state has provided a rallying effect at home It also had the effect of forcing the US to provide battlefield intelligence and targeting information (“not to support them would leave the relationship with no content” says Freeman) But the fundamental problem remains Iran the Saudis’ great regional rival Riyadh feels threatened not only by Tehran’s gains in Iraq and Yemen and continued support for the Assad regime in Syria buteven moreby Obama’s engagement with the Iranians Along with fellow members of the Sunni-dominated Gulf Cooperation Council they feel threatened by the attention Washington is paying to Iran in a region where attention equals prestige or even license Already almost wholly reliant on the US for their defense the Gulf Arab monarchs are asking for a formal treating with Washington guaranteeing their protection something Obama officials say they cannot provide “I think their fears that we are going to just throw them over and that Iran will be our big ally in the region are greatly exaggerated” says Gause But those are the fears that prompted the Obama administration to convene the Camp David summit And if King Salman cannot make it Freeman says he may have sussed it out as a “pseudo-event” “The Saudis and others have learned from Israel that you can give the United States the bird” says Freeman But that the former ambassador adds may work out for the best at Camp David “Having the two Mohammadsbin Nayef and bin Salmanin this thing puts the two people who are actually running things in there So if there’s something that’s actually going on in Saudi Arabia these are the two who can make things happen” Inside a Saudi Arabian Oil Giant’s American Oasis Families relax by “The Pond” at sunset “The Pond” is on the North East corner of the Dhahran Golf
