Whose Big Idea Was It?

At least 37 states are attempting to suppress the vote in their states…..of course they use the security of the institution as a premise for the suppression.

But since it is a wildly popular in most states the next question logically would be ….whose idea was this suppression……where did it all originate……

A great question and now we know thanks to a leaked video…..

In a private meeting last month with big-money donors, the head of a top conservative group boasted that her outfit had crafted the new voter suppression law in Georgia and was doing the same with similar bills for Republican state legislators across the country. “In some cases, we actually draft them for them,” she said, “or we have a sentinel on our behalf give them the model legislation so it has that grassroots, from-the-bottom-up type of vibe.”

The Georgia law had “eight key provisions that Heritage recommended,” Jessica Anderson, the executive director of Heritage Action for America, a sister organization of the Heritage Foundation, told the foundation’s donors at an April 22 gathering in Tucson, in a recording obtained by the watchdog group Documented and shared with Mother Jones. Those included policies severely restricting mail ballot drop boxes, preventing election officials from sending absentee ballot request forms to voters, making it easier for partisan workers to monitor the polls, preventing the collection of mail ballots, and restricting the ability of counties to accept donations from nonprofit groups seeking to aid in election administration.

All of these recommendations came straight from Heritage’s list of “best practices” drafted in February. With Heritage’s help, Anderson said, Georgia became “the example for the rest of the country.”

Leaked Video: Dark Money Group Brags About Writing GOP Voter Suppression Bills Across the Country

Watch the video!

I have been writing about the evils of Heritage for 30+ years….and now all can see just how much they hate democracy.

Do not be fooled by groups with cutsey names like “freedom” this or that….it is and has always been a con job….a con job that works well with the ignorant few.

Heritage is dangerous….and now their deceit has come to light…..

Closing thought–14May21

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.

This illustrates just how deep the lunacy goes…..when people that swore to protect the Constitution  try to overturn a valid election.

They are spreading the Trumpian lies and the manure of stupidity….they are ignore the oath they took and like most fools with Trump an oath means nothing unless it pertains to Donald the Orange.

Looking to 2022

Next year, 2022, will tell the tale…..will the voter truly be turned off by the events of 2021 or will they look at those situations as something to continue with the elections and re-election of enablers.

Now that Biden is entrenched it the seat of power I need to look to the mid-terms in 2022.

I know it is early in the process but I want to give a few thoughts before the rush begins.

2022 elections could be a massacre for Dems if they keep playing it “safe” with their approach to governing…..something they exceed at doing…..they go small and in the end have little to show for their efforts.

The House has a small majority for the Dems and that may not bode well for them to keep the majority in 2022.

The GOP will spread lies…..no let’s call it what it is…..manure……and about 47% of the American people will believe the lies….so to me 2022 is not looking too good for the people of this nation.

I think they will lose control of the House if they do not pursue and get the minimum wage increase….and I am not alone…..

After the Democrats in the House approved a far-reaching Covid-19 relief package early Saturday with all but two members of the caucus on board, progressive anger and despair escalated over the Biden administration’s refusal thus far to make sure the $15 minimum wage increase remains in the bill as it heads to the U.S. Senate.

As journalist David Sirota, founder of The Daily Poster and former staffer for the 2020 Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, put it on Saturday: “If you were writing a Dickensian novel, it would be about millions of desperately poor people being promised a $15 starvation wage, and then watching their millionaire senators tell them that a parliamentary adviser in the palace said no.”

While Biden and his administration have made clear they will not move to use Harris’ authority as presiding officer of the Senate to disregard or overrule the Parliamentarian’s determination, the anger on the progressive left—both inside and outside of Congress—has only grown since Thursday.

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2021/02/28/democrats-will-lose-2022-if-15-wage-dies-senate-anger-grows-biden-harris-bow

Plus the GOP is working hard to suppress the vote in 43 of the 50 states.  If they succeed then many people will be eliminated from voting and that plays into the GOP win.

The more I watch our spineless Congress do their ‘work’ (a questionable term) I am more and more convinced that 2022 will be the end of a Dem majority in the House.

There is lots of ideas but yet their are members of caucus that have NO spine or consideration for the people they supposedly serve.

Unless they get their sh*t together they will go down in in a flaming defeat in 2022.

Do your part and make these worthless toads do something for the people and stop serving the special interests and their deep pockets.

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

Will Mike Pence challenge his master in 2024?

It has been reported that Trump is vaguely promising he will run for president again 2024….but now Pence is signalling a plan as well….

In his first public address since the end of the Trump administration, former Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday put down a marker for a potential return to elected office, telling an audience in early-voting South Carolina that he will spend the coming months “pushing back on the liberal agenda” he says is wrong for the country. “We’ve got to guard our values … by offering a positive agenda to the American people, grounded in our highest ideal,” Pence told an audience of several hundred at a Columbia dinner sponsored by a conservative Christian nonprofit. “Now, over the coming months, I’ll have more to say about all of that.” The choice of South Carolina for Pence’s post-administration debut has definite political overtones, helping him develop exposure for a potential 2024 presidential bid, theAP reports.

 

Pence, who since leaving office has been doing work with the Heritage Foundation and Young America’s Foundation, has not indicated if he plans a future run. Earlier Thursday, South Carolina Democratic Chair Trav Robertson said Pence was coming to the state to “try and salvage his relationship” with Trump supporters irked that Pence didn’t support efforts to block certification of the 2020 presidential election. On Thursday, Pence promised to reveal more of his ideas soon, promising that he would be challenging the Biden administration’s “avalanche of liberal policies” as he ramps up speaking engagements around the country.

What will he do if the master of the GOP decides to run….will their be any challengers or will he cowtow to the Orange man from Florida or will they all prove that they are truly the cowards I believe them to be?

Teasing From Trump (Again)

Our last guy to stay in the White House keeps throwing breadcrumbs to the worshipers…..a teasing about 2024 and his possible run for the presidency again…..just a week goo what-his-name went on FOX (where else?) and threw out those rancid breadcrumbs for the loyal to consume…….https://lobotero.com/2021/04/22/trumps-trail-of-breadcrumbs/

Of course he went on FOX for an interview that he as usual threw more garbage for the loyal to eat and regurgitate….

Former President Trump hasn’t committed to a 2024 run, but it’s beginning to look more likely that he would ditch Mike Pence if it happens. In an interview with Marie Bartiromo of Fox Business on Thursday, the former president instead spoke glowingly of a different possible running mate—Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. “A lot of people like that—you know, I’m just saying what I read and what you read—they love that ticket,” Trump said, per Politico. “But certainly, Ron would be considered. He’s a great guy.” The governor has not responded publicly to the comments. Trump also said DeSantis has “done a great job as governor.” Politico notes that DeSantis’ star is rising within the GOP for his resistance to COVID restrictions. Also in the interview:

  • Giuliani: Trump blasted the raid of Rudy Giuliani’s apartment and law office by federal agents on Wednesday, reports the Hill. Giuliani “is a great patriot,” said Trump of his former personal attorney. “He just loves this country, and they raid his apartment.” The former president called the raid “unfair” and a “double standard” for his allies. “I don’t know what they’re looking for or what they’re doing,” he said. “They say it had to do with filings of various papers and lobbying files. Well, did Hunter [Biden] file? Did [President] Biden file? Because they did a lot of work with other countries. To the best of everyone’s knowledge, they didn’t file.”
  • ‘Ungracious’: Trump complained that the Biden administration is not crediting him for his accomplishments on the COVID vaccines and other issues. “It’s ridiculous,” Trump said, per Mediaite. “Obviously they’re very ungracious people. I did the vaccine. They like to take the vaccine. But even the fake news isn’t giving them credit for that. We did the vaccine, saved tens of millions of lives throughout the world by coming up with a vaccine. If I weren’t president, vaccine, you wouldn’t have a vaccine for five years, three to five years would be the minimum. I got it done in less than nine months. And that’s only because of me.”

Is he serious about 2024?  Or is he just trying to keep the donations roll in?

Should we take his threat of running in 2024 seriously?

Well He dropped a huge hint just yesterday….

Donald Trump dropped a very big hint Tuesday about his plans for 2024. The former president—who hasn’t acknowledging losing the 2020 election yet—told Candace Owens at the Daily Wire that his supporters will be “very happy” with his decision about another White House run, the Hill reports. “As you know, it’s very early. But I think people are going to be very, very happy when I make a certain announcement,” Trump said in a wide-ranging interview set to air Tuesday night.

Trump said that for campaign finance reasons, “you really can’t do it too early because it becomes a whole different thing.” After Owens joked about becoming his running mate in 2024, Trump laughed and said, “That would be fantastic.” Trump also launched a new website Tuesday that resembles what Politico calls “an old-school blog.” Readers can’t comment on Trump’s posts, but they can share them on social media. Trump is still banned from Twitter and Facebook. The latter site plans to announce Wednesday morning whether its Oversight Board has recommended lifting the ban.

Our orangeman from Florida will have his own platform for the spread of lies, hate and total bullshit.

On the eve of Donald Trump’s Facebook fate being decided, the former president launched his own communications platform. From the Desk of Donald J. Trump, unveiled Tuesday and found here, features a timeline of messages from Trump and offers readers the option to share them to Facebook or Twitter, both of which have banned Trump himself from their platforms. But the Facebook ban may not be permanent; the AP reports. At 9am Wednesday, the company’s quasi-independent Oversight Board will rule either for or against the former prez; if it decides in his favor, his Facebook and Instagram accounts will be reinstated. If not, his ban from both sites will remain “indefinite.” As for Trump’s Twitter suspension, a spokesperson says it remains permanent.

But back to Trump’s new virtual desk. As the AP points out, it’s “little more than a (display) of Trump’s recent statements,” which can already be accessed elsewhere on his website, and Fox News notes that it offers no option for readers to actually reply to said statements. Followers can, however, sign up to receive alerts every time a new message is posted. Many on Twitter were jokingly referring to it as a blog. Politico hypothesizes that the site could lead to more social media trouble for users sharing his messages, but Twitter says there won’t be any problem as long as the messages don’t violate its guidelines. Facebook didn’t comment on the matter. Those who were hoping for more, fear not: Trump’s spokesperson tweeted that the “desk” is not the new social media platform Trump’s team has been promising for months, but that news on that is coming soon.

Will the horror return?

Any thoughts?

Trump’s Trail Of Breadcrumbs

Ever since he was soundly defeated in 2020 Trump has been leaving a trail of breadcrumbs for the devout……the trail leads to the 2024 election in which he keeps leaving those crumbs to keep the worshipers in-line….

He has done it again in a FOX News interview…..

Former President Trump is keeping his name alive as a potential 2024 candidate. “I am looking at it very seriously,” he told Sean Hannity in an interview on Fox News on Monday night. “Beyond seriously. From a legal standpoint, I don’t want to really talk about it yet. It’s a little too soon.” Trump didn’t elaborate on what he meant with his reference to the “legal standpoint,” though USA Today notes he is under investigation in New York over his financial dealings and in Georgia over allegations of interference in the 2020 vote count. “Look, I’ve got tremendous numbers,” Trump said when Hannity pressed him on a possible run. “There is more popularity [for me] now than there was the day before the election,” he added, citing concern about migrants at the border, taxes, and gun control.

 

Even if he doesn’t run, however, Trump made clear he intends to play a role in shaping the GOP agenda by supporting candidates on the state and national level. “If they need a rally, we’ll do a rally,” he said. “We’ll do calls. We’ll do all sorts of things.” He also made a point to single out for criticism Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski, two Republican senators who have sometimes opposed his agenda, and he complained that Democrats are more unified in Congress. The solution is to run more candidates who back his “America First” movement, says Trump. “If you want to win and win big, you have to do that,” he says. “You have to do it.”

He will not commit…..it is more profitable to keep the worshipers on the hook until the last minute.

Will he or won’t he?

If the cash dries up he won’t but as long as morons keep send cash he will in 2024.

Closing Thought–04Mar21

The GOP lost in the last election….they lost the Senate, The House and the Presidency…..so instead of looking for a vision for the future they do what they have been doing for decades….they look to the past and the suppression of the vote.

The big push by state GOP bigots is to find ways to keep people from voting and even to let a governor overturn the legal vote…..

Across the nation, supporters of former President Trump are working to pass state legislation changing laws to limit access to voting and give them more control over election outcomes. With a rallying cry about the presidential election having been stolen from Trump, and basing their plans on the premise that large turnouts benefit Democrats, state legislators are seeking major changes to help Republicans win the presidency next time, the New York Times reports. The efforts could help Republicans, who’ve won the popular presidential vote only once in the past eight elections, gain control of government despite being a minority party. “The typical response by a losing party in a functioning democracy is that they alter their platform to make it more appealing,” said a University of Wisconsin expert. “Here the response is to try to keep people from voting. It’s dangerously antidemocratic.” The national GOP showed its support last week by forming a panel to look at state election laws, which Republicans have done in various states.

Some efforts seem illogical. Republicans won the presidential and Senate races in Iowa, which reported record turnout and essentially no election fraud last fall. But GOP legislators have voted to shorten early voting by nine days, close polling places an hour earlier, and make absentee voting rules more restrictive. They also moved to take county auditors’ authority away to made decisions about local voting. “Most of us in my caucus and the Republican caucus believe the election was stolen,” a GOP state senator said. Nebraska Republicans want to change to a winner-take-all system for its electoral votes because President Biden was awarded one vote last time. But New Hampshire Republicans want to adopt Nebraska’s current system because Democrats have been winning presidential elections there. A bill in Arizona is more direct, per NBC: The Legislature would have the power to revoke the secretary of state’s certification of electoral results “by majority vote at any time before the presidential inauguration.”

Time for true Americans, not the numb skulls that support bigotry and hatred, to stand up and demand that ALL votes and voters MUST participate….

If this nation is to survivor then ALL Americans need to participate and ALL Americans  should have their right to vote to be guaranteed.

Can HR1……stop all this theft?

The House passed HR1. The bill: -Enacts automatic voter registration -Ends partisan and racial gerrymandering -Institutes public financing of elections -Expands early voting -Prevents voter purges -Exposes dark money -Counters Citizens United

Get behind this bill anyway you can…..we need to end all this suppression and oppression of the American people.

The Next Trump

Donald the Orange lost in 2020 and after months of antics and end runs…..Biden has been sworn in as the 46th president to the United States.

But Trump may have sealed his political demise for his actions and words on 06 January.

But say he dodges a bullet and returns to political activity…..which he will.

Now we can look forward to more antics by Trump and those slimy sycophants for the next challenge in 2024.

Whether Donald Trump runs again in 2024 or fades from politics, his enigmatic hold on tens of millions of Americans will be a lesson to the next demagogue. Much will be learned from Trump’s successes in manipulating huge swaths of the public, and also from his failures to translate his autocratic desires into practical power.

Just the fact that 72 percent of Republicans tell pollsters that they believe Trump’s discredited claim that he won the 2020 election is a mark of his perverse success in selling the Big Lie. His outsized personality, his ridiculous assertions, his coarse and insulting talent for channeling resentments felt by masses of alienated citizens placed him so far above reproach in so many minds that his obvious corruption and damage to the country’s reputation and national security made no impact on the committed. After four years of falsehoods, incompetence, and immorality, he won eleven million more votes than in 2016 (up from 63 to 74 million).

He has deftly played the dual role of tough guy and victim, of swaggering bully and persecuted prey. This is a skillful embodiment of the wishes and fears of the millions, mostly white working class, who feel marginalized and dishonored while yearning for the wealth and strength that Trump appears to possess. He has given them the dignity that many feel they have been denied by the liberal, urban, multiethnic society that their country is becoming.

The Next Trump

Let’s say Trump decides to NOT return to the campaign trail in 2024….who would care his torch forward?

(This may be a moot point for his CPAC performance Trump is hinting that he will run again 2024….this may put a halt to anyone trying to take up the hatred mantra of Trump by any of the sycophants that pray to him daily)

Who among the GOP are likely to be the next Trump?

There is speculative chatter that one of Trump’s children, perhaps his elder daughter Ivanka, could enter the political arena. But here are some other front-line contenders for the GOP nomination in 2024.

What Has Happened To The GOP?

I have written many times that my maternal grandfather was a Republican and worked for Ike in 1956 because he believed that Ike would do a better job for the country……

Here is what the GOP stood for in the 1956 elections…..

How about a comparison of then and now…..

What the Hell happened?

Take a closer look at the platforms of 1960 and 1964…..

https://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/documents/republican-party-platform-1960

https://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/documents/republican-party-platform-1964

What the Hell happened to the GOP?

I blame the election of Ronald Reagan.

I personally think that his, Reagan, hateful rhetoric like lumping all welfare recipients as “Welfare Queens” stirred the latent racism that was simmering ever since the civil rights movement…..started the GOP down the path that brought it to Donald Trump and the events that occurred in the Capitol on 06 January.

I have read an article about the devolution of the GOP…..

https://theintercept.com/2016/07/18/the-long-sad-corrupted-devolution-of-the-gop-from-eisenhower-to-donald-trump/

the Republican Party of the past at least showed itself capable of responding to domestic and global issues, offering and implementing successful policies to deal with pressing problems like poverty, environmental degradation, and a refugee crisis.

So what happened?

There is no easy explanation, but there are a few key catalysts for the party’s slide into extremism.

Ultimately, the Republican Party’s drift away from inclusion and the public interest and toward a coterie of extreme donors and ideologies does have an electoral cost, one that could force reformation or perhaps the birth of a new political party — just ask the Whigs.

Now the big question is….where will the GOP end up?

For now I think they will stay in the grip of Trump…..and a recent poll confirms my fears…

A majority of Republican voters said if former President Trump were to start a new political party they would likely join, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds.

Sixty-four percent of registered Republican voters in the Jan. 28-29 survey said they’d join a new political party led by the former president, including 32 percent who said they would very likely join.

What could happen to change the course the GOP has set?

It will not be Trump…..he says he is still in control….

Former President Trump will re-enter the political spotlight Sunday when he speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference. What to expect? If a report at Axios is any indication, the speech will be a “show of force” that makes clear Trump is still running the show within the GOP and remains the Republican candidate to beat for 2024. Details and related coverage:

  • One unnamed adviser sums up the theme for Mike Allen as, “I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office, but I’m still in charge.” Trump will position himself as the presumptive 2024 nominee—though it’s not clear whether he’ll run—and as more powerful than ever. Also expect lots of I-told-you-so about President Biden. And for now, “payback is his chief obsession,” writes Allen, which will take the form of backing primary challenges to Republicans who turned against him.
  • Trump may have a point about his support. A new USA Today poll finds that 46% of Trump voters would ditch the GOP to join a new party with him. Half think the GOP should be more loyal to Trump, even if that means losing more mainstream Republicans, compared with just 19% who think the party should be less loyal to Trump and embrace establishment Republicans.
  • At Hot Air, conservative Allahpundit takes note of other Trump surveys of late, including by Gallup, Rasmussen, and Suffolk. “This makes three polls in less than a month establishing the same two key facts about the current Republican Party,” writes the pundit. “One: There are many more Trumpers than there are anti-Trumpers. Two: There are enough anti-Trumpers to make life difficult for the GOP if things stay too Trumpy.” In Allahpundit’s view, 50% of the GOP is more loyal to Trump than the party, 30% back Trump but not enough to buck the party, and 20% want the GOP to head in a new direction.
  • At Red State, a post by Bonchie digests the recent Trump reports and issues a prediction: “Playing kingmaker may actually be Trump’s ultimate goal over the next four years. While I’d certainly not rule out a 2024 run for him, I think he enjoys the intra-party battle just as much.”
  • Trump, meanwhile, continues to maintain a relatively low profile at Mar-a-Lago. GOP Rep. Steve Scalise told ABC News on Sunday that he visited the former president recently, finding that he “was a lot more relaxed than his four years in the White House.” And in a sign of the loyalty Trump still commands, Scalise refuse to explicitly acknowledge that the election wasn’t stolen, when asked directly.

For those that think “unity” is possible…..WAKE THE HELL UP!

A (“C” Word) Comes To Congress

There have been many people elected to Congress that seem to not hold the sword of the Constitution in their hearts….but recently the people of Georgia (the state not the country) elected an all out whack-a-doodle.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is her name.

She has hassled a shooting victim, made light of handicapped people, threatened a member of Congress with death and so forth….

Some Congress are worried about her place in the House…..

It’s deja va all over again for Republicans, at least in the AP’s eyes. “Republicans have a Marjorie Taylor Greene problem. Again,” it declares, and it’s not alone in that coverage. Though she was embraced by then-President Trump, the Georgia Republican was denounced by party leaders during her primary run over her voiced support for QAnon. But once she clinched the primary, that clamor against her all but ceased. Now, new issues—for her and for the party—in the form of a deep dive into her Facebook activity and the surfacing of a video in which she is hounding a Parkland school shooting survivor. The latest:

  • CNN KFile dug into hundreds of posts and comments that appeared on Greene’s Facebook page, and found instances from 2018 and 2019 where she liked comments related to executing leading Democrats, among them Nancy Pelosi. In that January 2019 instance, she liked a comment that suggested “a bullet to the head” would be a quicker way to remove Pelosi from her post. In response to a commenter asking about hanging Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, she replied, “Stage is being set. Players are being put in place. We must be patient. This must be done perfectly or liberal judges would let them off.”
  • In a tweeted response to the report, Greene blasted “Fake News CNN” for its hit piece and offered a defense, writing that her Facebook page has been handled by others in addition to herself. “Many posts have been liked. Many posts have been shared. Some did not represent my views. Especially the ones that CNN is about to spread across the internet.”

Media Matters flagged a 2018 Facebook post in which Greene gave air to a conspiracy theory that there is video of Clinton murdering a child as part of a satanic ritual and and orchestrated a hit on a cop to cover it up.

The GOP has been silent on her attitudes and words…..they even went so far as to give her a committee assignment….

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was “appalled” to learn Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who once endorsed executing the speaker, was appointed to the House Education Committee. “What could they be thinking?” Pelosi said of Republican House leaders on Thursday, per Politico. “Or is thinking too generous of a word for what they might be doing?” She said the appointment showed “the disregard” GOP members have for the deaths of children in school shootings at Sandy Hook in Newtown, Conn., and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Fla.—events Greene has claimed were staged. And the speaker wasn’t alone.

  • Committee chair Rep. Bobby Scott called on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to “explain how someone with this background represents the Republican party on education issues.” He added the appointment was supposed to reflect members’ “commitment to serving students, parents, and educators.”
  • Some Sandy Hook parents are chiming in as well. Jake Tapper tweeted a statement from Mark Barden, father of Daniel Barden, and Nicole Hockley, mother of Dylan Hockley, that reads in part, “Having a Sandy Hook and Parkland denier on the House Education and Labor Committee is an attack on any and every family whose loved ones were murdered in mass shootings.”
  • Fellow Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger said Greene should be denied the privilege of serving on any committee, calling her a “Republican In Name Only,” per Politico. The outlet reports freshman GOP Rep. Nancy Mace has also criticized Greene in private.
  • This comes after a deep dive into Greene’s social media accounts. Per the Daily Intelligencer, Greene has claimed 9/11 was an inside job, said Muslims don’t belong in government, and spread an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory suggesting 2018 California wildfires were caused by a space laser connected to the Rothschild family.
  • “She saw the Austin Powers movie and thought it was a documentary, I guess,” Jimmy Kimmel quipped Thursday, per the New York Times. He added House Republicans had appointed their “screwiest, Q-iest member” to the Education Committee “hoping, I guess, she would get one.”
  • Late Show host Stephen Colbert noted Greene’s support for executing top Democrats is “probably going to complicate this year’s congressional Secret Santa: ‘Huh, let’s see what I get here. Uh, my person gave me a severed horse’s head? I thought there was a $25 limit.'”
  • McCarthy has already had private conversations with Greene, who has also joined the House Budget Committee, “in an attempt to rein in some of her most extreme rhetoric,” per Politico. In response to the latest criticism, he said he would speak to Greene again about her “disturbing” comments.
  • Democrats are taking steps of their own, including introducing a privileged resolution to expel Greene from Congress. While it’s unlikely to pass, it would force “every single lawmaker, including members of GOP leadership, to go on the record when it comes to Greene,” per Politico.

And let’s not forget that before Biden took his oath she stated that she would offer up an impeachment of Biden…

A freshman GOP lawmaker wants to get the ball rolling on impeaching Joe Biden on the president-elect’s first full day in office. After President Trump was impeached for a second time Wednesday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene told Newsmax that she plans to file articles of impeachment against Biden on Jan. 21. The Georgia lawmaker has expressed support for QAnon conspiracy theories, but she’s not planning to accuse Biden of being part of a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles. Instead, she is attacking the president-elect over remarks he made in 2018 about threatening to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine if prosecutor general Viktor Shokin wasn’t replaced, the Hill reports. “I’m proud to be the voice of Republican voters who have been ignored,” she tweeted.

The Obama administration called for Shokin’s firing over corruption allegations in 2015, as did the EU and the IMF. When Biden, as vice president, raised the issue with Ukrainian officials, Shokin was investigating the energy firm Burisma. Biden’s son Hunter was a board member at the time, though he was not accused of wrongdoing. “We cannot have a president of the United States who is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, foreign Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies,” said Greene, who didn’t specify what she wants to charge Biden with. Trump’s first impeachment stemmed from a call to Ukraine’s leader in which he pushed for an investigation of the Bidens.

Do we really want a person like this representing the US?

She also will not back down….

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) vowed to “never back down” as she faces an avalanche of criticism in light of unearthed remarks advocating violence against Democrats, calling school shootings a hoax and supporting the Qanon conspiracy theory.   

In a statement to supporters, Greene blamed the “radical, left-wing Democratic mob and the Fake News media” for the effort to “take me out,” even though the controversy surrounds unsurfaced comments she made and has attracted criticism from fellow Republicans. 

“I will never back down. I will never give up. Because I am one of you. And I will always represent you,” she said. “I take these slings and arrows gladly for you. I take them for our America First movement so that we can save our country and stop socialism. I knew this day would come, it was only a question of when.”

The ball is in Pelosi’s court…..what will she do?

I do not blame Greene….I blame the morons in Georgia that elected her.

Pelosi needs to find a spine and do hat needs doing….since the GOP are gutless cowards she needs to act.

If she does not that Pelosi will make the House as spineless as the Senate.
