    Marjorie Taylor Green

    I've only paid attention to her in a general sense and haven't really formed a solid opinion. Seems like there was something I completely disagreed with her on but I can't recall what it was. Nevertheless, she seems to be shaping up as pretty damn principled and is kicking ass. Curious what you guys think.

    Marjorie Taylor Greene Ups Ante Against Johnson: ‘Republican Speaker Should Not Be Executing Democrats’ Agenda’

    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) escalated her war against Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) Tuesday with a missive that will greet weary lawmakers returning to the Capitol for a tense two-week legislative burst that might be the most treacherous period of Johnson’s speakership.

    Greene’s letter is the latest attack in her weeks-long crusade against Johnson that gained legislative legitimacy when she filed a motion to vacate the chair on March 22. That motion could strip Johnson’s gavel just as the House did to then-Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) in October.

    She filed her motion the day Johnson passed a massive $1.2 trillion government funding plan over the objections of the majority of House Republicans, a move Greene says “broke our conference rules and the promises we made to our voters.”

    The House adopted rules at the beginning of the 118th Congress intended to allow members at least 72 hours to review all legislation before voting. The 1,000-plus page spending bill was presented to members before 3:00 a.m. Eastern on Thursday morning, less than 36 hours before the vote.

    More significantly, the bill was opposed by 112 Republicans, with only 101 Republican votes in support despite significant pressure from Johnson and his leadership team. By passing a bill under suspension of the rules – bypassing the Republican-controlled Rules Committee – and relying on Democrat support to pass a bill opposed by the majority of his party, Johnson violated the Hastert Rule, an informal rule that Republican speakers should never bring forward a bill opposed by the majority of his party.

    Greene opposed that minibus – the second part of a two-tiered, or “laddered” omnibus spending bill – on its merits as well. She writes, “There is little daylight between Nancy Pelosi’s omnibus in the 117th Congress and Mike Johnson’s omnibus in the 118th Congress, in spite of Americans giving Republicans the majority in order to stop the Democrats’ ‘America Last’ destructive agenda.”

    Let's have another go around of picking a new Speaker. I need the government to be temporarily halted again.

    I think she is basically useless. She is just in politics for the attention. I don't really like Johnson, but there is nobody who could win a vote to replace him.

    I like her at least she is kicking up a little dust.

    IMHO, she seems to actually listen to Thomas Massie. Nothing wrong with that.

    Can you name a thing that she's done? Besides propose a declaration of war against Mexico. Let's skip that one for now.

    No, because I don't know what you mean. When you ask what she's done, do you mean bills written and or passed? She's very much doing something by going after Johnson so what else could you mean?

    Forced the house to come in to actually vote on bills by declaring role call when there's like a dozen people in the room so the people can better hold their politicians accountable by knowing how they voted?

    Before it was only Massie who would do such a thing.. so they just met when he wasn't there, he couldn't do it by himself. Now they have a team.

    Help oust speakers who break their promises on not doing omnibus bills is another.

    While many Republicans love them some FISA... other Republicans are trying to reform FISA...

    MTG is fighting alongside Massie to kill FISA.

    I like the things she does and the things she says.

    Which is more than can be said for all but a handful in Congress.

    Her sponsorships and co-sponsorships are for good things.

    “You said you represent science. Do you represent science? Mr. Fauci? Yes or no. Yes or no,” the congresswoman said as Fauci responded that it was not a yes or no answer.

    “I don’t think it is,” Fauci said, prompting Greene to say, “We’ll take that as a you don’t know what you represent.”

    “As director of the NIH, you did sign off on these so-called scientific experiments. And as a dog lover, I want to tell you this is disgusting and evil, what you signed off on,” she said, holding up a picture of the experiment uncovered by White Coat Waste Project (WCW), which involved the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), directed by Fauci, granting a university $424,455 in taxpayer dollars to do a lymphatic filariasis vaccine efficacy trial on dogs between September 16, 2020 and January 15, 2022.

    WCW described the tests as “unnecessary,” and they involved “injecting the puppies with an experimental drug and intentionally infesting them with flies that carry a disease-causing parasite before euthanizing them,” Breitbart News detailed at the time.

    “And these experiments that happened to beagles were paid for by the American taxpayer. And I want you to know, Americans don’t pay their taxes for animals to be tortured like this. So the type of science that you are representing, Mr. Fauci, is abhorrent, and it needs to stop,” she said, also asserting that Fauci represents “the type of science where you confess that you made up the COVID rules, including six-feet social distancing and masking of children.”

    She's the GOP's version of Maxine Waters.
    We have long had death and taxes as the two standards of inevitability. But there are those who believe that death is the preferable of the two. "At least," as one man said, "there's one advantage about death; it doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."

    Same could be said for Rand and Massie. There is not much "usefulness" in congress in general.

    No. Maxine Waters is a lying POS racist who sucks up to power. MTG is a truth teller and bucks the system.
