We all know the BS swirling around the Right about the 2020 election…that it was illegitimate……but there is a group of retired officers that have stepped all over the Constitution….that document that they swore an oath to protect……they signed a letter to Pres. Biden about the talking points on the lunatic Right…..
More than 120 retired US military leaders have signed an open letter appearing to advance a false conspiracy theory that the 2020 election was rigged and questioning President Joe Biden’s mental capacity to serve.
“Without fair and honest elections that accurately reflect the ‘will of the people’ our Constitutional Republic is lost,” said the letter released Tuesday by “Flag Officers 4 America,” and signed by 124 former admirals and generals.
“The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020.
On its website, Flag Officers 4 America says it is a collection of “retired military leaders who pledged to support and defend the Constitution of the US against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
In the letter, the signatories, many of whom have been out of active service for decades, also addressed concerns over Biden’s health.
Most career politicians in my opinion are sleazy actors addicted to power and high dollar donors….not the country.
Since the 1990s the Congress has become a major circus….the dignified debate and disagreements have become a a bad opera with antics and infantile situations….like the idiot that delivered pizza to a classified briefing….and then there is the newest clown on the Right, Taylor-Greene.
Since she lost her committees she has worked to find ways to get on camera and her newest skit is just simply undignified pursuit…..
Two of the most high-profile members of the House—one on the left, the other on the right—are the focus of a flurry of news coverage on Thursday. The headlines came after GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia confronted New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as the latter was leaving the House chamber. Coverage:
The Washington Post reports that Greene shouted, “Hey Alexandria” twice and, when AOC didn’t stop walking, began shouting questions such as, “Why do you support terrorists and antifa?” She also labeled Black Lives Matter as a “terrorist” group and accused AOC of being afraid to defend her “radical socialist” beliefs in a debate.
AOC turned around once and threw her hands in the air “in an exasperated motion,” per the Post. Later, an AOC spokesperson said Greene “tried to begin an argument” with AOC, and when the latter “tried to walk away, Congresswoman Greene began screaming and called Rep. Ocasio-Cortez a terrorist sympathizer.” Added spokeswoman Lauren Hitt: “We hope leadership and the Sergeant at Arms will take real steps to make Congress a safe, civil place for all Members and staff—especially as many offices are discussing reopening.”
Greene called AOC a “chicken” after the incident. And on Twitter on Thursday, she wrote, “‘Ms. Defund The Police’ wants to call the police for security bc she’s afraid of debating with me about her socialist (Green New Deal.)” The Hill notes that Greene challenged AOC to a debate last month on the plan. In her Thursday tweet, Greene called AOC “a fraud & a hypocrite.”
This isn’t Greene’s first run-in with a congressional colleague. Democratic Rep. Cori Bush moved her office away from Greene’s after accusing Greene and her staff of berating her in a hallway. Greene said it was the other way around.
NBC News notes that the new confrontation meshes with Greene’s style of accosting political opponents verbally and in public. Before becoming a member of Congress, she posted a video of one such encounter with teenage gun-control advocate David Hogg outside the Capitol.
When will the House GOP step up and rein in this twat?
The House of Representatives—in the same manner as the United States Senate—is expressly authorized within the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 5, clause 2) to discipline or “punish” its own Members. This authority of the House to discipline a Member for “disorderly Behaviour” is in addition to any criminal or civil liability that a Member of the House may incur for particular misconduct, and is used notmerely topunish anindividual Member, but to protect the institutional integrity of the House of Representatives, its proceedings,and its reputation.The House maydiscipline itsMemberswithout the necessity of Senate concurrence.The most common forms of discipline in the House are now “expulsion,” “censure,” or “reprimand,” although the House may also discipline its Members in other ways, including fine or monetary restitution, loss of seniority, and suspension or loss of certain privileges. In addition to such sanctions imposed by the full House of Representatives, the standing committee in the House which dealswith ethics and official conduct matters, the House Committee on Ethics—formerly called the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct—is authorized by House Rules to issue a formal“Letter of Reproval” for misconduct which does not rise to the level of consideration or sanction by the entire House of Representatives. Additionally, the Committee on Ethicshas also expressed its disapproval of certain conduct in informal letters and communications to Members
She needs a muzzle!
The House GOP leadership should do what is necessary to return some dignity to their side of the aisle…..but will they?
I vote to throw the bitch out on her nose…… severe sanction of expulsion has been employed in the House, the underlying conduct deemed to have merited removal from office has historically involved either disloyalty to the United States, or the violation of a criminal law involving the abuse of one’s official position, such as bribery.
Do It Now!
Greene is doing all she can to stay in the news…..give her something to rail about….throw her out!
Until they take action they will continue to be the clown show of the Congress.
All she is doing is auditioning for a spot on FOX or OAN…she never intended to govern just perform.
There are numerous incidents of misconduct in both Houses….just so you know here is the list and the actions taken….
The allegations of misconduct listed on this page do not imply guilt in the absence of a conviction or admission of guilt. Exonerations are included because the investigation and exoneration are themselves important events. Conversely, congressional investigations that end without a guilty determination do not imply innocence because congressional investigative bodies are political, not judicial.
After a year of having to wear a mask (especially those that care about their health and that of others) the CDC has now issued some much needed good news….
A big move by the CDC: The agency on Thursday eased indoor mask-wearing guidance for fully vaccinated people, allowing them to safely stop wearing masks inside in most places. The new guidance still calls for wearing masks in crowded indoor settings like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons, and homeless shelters, but will help clear the way for reopening workplaces, schools, and other venues—even removing the need for masks or social distancing for those who are fully vaccinated, per the AP. The CDC will also no longer recommend that fully vaccinated people wear masks outdoors in crowds. The announcement comes as the CDC and the Biden administration have faced pressure to ease restrictions on fully vaccinated people—people who are two weeks past their last required COVID-19 vaccine dose—in part to highlight the benefits of getting the shot.
“This is a day that I think will be marked as a true turning point in the pandemic in the United States,” says Richard Besser, former acting director of the CDC, per the Washington Post. “The idea that people who are fully vaccinated can take off their masks, can go outside, can go inside, be around people, and not have to worry about COVID anymore, that’s absolutely huge.” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director of the CDC, announced the new guidance on Thursday afternoon at a White House briefing, saying the long-awaited change is thanks to millions of people getting vaccinated—and based on the latest science about how well those shots are working. Just two weeks ago, the CDC recommended that fully vaccinated people continue to wear masks indoors in all settings and outdoors in large crowds.
This is great news for most people so they can get back to “normal” (whatever that means)….
There is a “but” for me.
I do not trust most people to be telling the truth about their vaccinations…..
I live in an area that fought the wearing of masks as an assault on the individual rights (those rights that make them stupid)…..
So I will be extra careful and avoid morons in a crowd.
