Drug Addicted Sex Maniac And Multi-Millionaire Marjorie Taylor Greene: "I’m very much one of those Neanderthal Deplorable Invisible Taxpaying Regular People"
Stripped of her committee assignments, crank, sex-addict and insurrectionist Marjorie Taylor Greene (Q-GA), has nothing better to do than disrupt other members of Congress trying to get their work done.
On Saturday, The Hill's Scott Wong spoke with several mainstream conservatives about their crackpot colleague's penchant for putting her drug-enhanced energy into trying to "delay congressional business by forcing futile procedural votes to adjourn the House each day are disrupting committee hearings and virtual constituent meetings." Ann Wagner (R-MO), David Joyce (R-OH) and Tim Walberg (R-MI) will all willing to go on record slamming Ms QAnon Nut for her disruptive behavior.
Rep. Ann Wagner (R-MO) had to rush out of a committee hearing with Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on monetary policy. Rep. David Joyce (R-OH) had to step out of a video conference with an international conservation group. And Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI) had to halt a Zoom meeting with local chambers of commerce from the Great Lakes region.
“Aggravated,” Wagner replied when asked by The Hill how she felt about having to vote on one of Greene’s motions to adjourn one recent morning.
Before stepping onto the House floor, Wagner added, “Ms. Greene doesn't have three hearings today like I do.”
Her antics-- gumming up the works of the House-- are no doubt popular among the angry left-behind fans of anomie who put her in office in the first place. Her Republican colleagues complain that her anarchous/childish behavior serves "no purpose and interrupt[s] the flow of the workday for lawmakers, particularly meetings that are planned around anticipated vote schedules. Some point out the irony: Greene complained that ousting her from committees 'stripped my district of their voice' and 'stripped my voters of having representation to work for them.' Now, Republicans are turning the tables on Greene, arguing that her obstruction is making them less effective at representing their own constituents. 'It’s a senseless thing that doesn't really provide for productive results in the Congress,' Joyce, a member of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, told The Hill. This week, he had been on a Zoom video call sponsored by the International Conservation Caucus Foundation, with Reps. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), Betty McCollum (D-MN) and Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) when Greene forced an unexpected vote to end House business for the day. 'All it does is disrupt the organization of the day when you’re trying to meet with constituents when you have to come vote for something that’s not going to pass,' Joyce said.
This week, 18 Republicans-- an unusually high number for a procedural vote-- voted against Greene's silly call for an adjournment-- Tim Walberg (R-MI), Liz Cheney (R-WY), Tom Rice (R-SC), Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), Jim Banks (R-IN), Kay Granger (R-TX), Mike Simpson (R-ID), Steve Womack (R-AR), Mark Amodei (R-NV), John Rutherford (R-FL), David Joyce (R-OH), Don Bacon (R-NE), Darrell Issa (R-CA), Mike Gallagher (R-WI), David McKinley (R-WV), Gregory Murphy (R-NC), Mariannette Miller-Meek (R-IA) and Blake Moore (R-UT).
Kinzinger who went along with Greene the first couple of times she pulled the stunt said he was no longer going to encourage her game-playing. "I’m just tired of it. We’re doing this every day, and there’s no point. So I’m just done playing. The crazy thing is nobody coordinated it; I never talked to anybody. Today was the organic moment of 'We’re over it.'"
I spoke to the chief of staff of one top Republican House member who told me-- on condition of anonymity-- that it is Pelosi's fault and that she is using Greene's "infantile behavior" as a money-raising tool. "The Democrats should have expelled her from Congress when they had the chance but Pelosi would rather keep her around so they can tar the whole party with her... People are starting to lose patience with McCarthy as well."
Yesterday, Greene devoted herself to a Twitter marathon about how the world is against her but how she's the champion of the lunatic fringe voters who love her. I've made her Saturday Tweet storm into a narrative as best I could:
I dedicate this thread to my GOP Colleagues:
The headline of this article should read, “Marjorie Cares About The People Not The Politicians And Refuses To Join The Swamp.”
I didn’t get voted into office by politicians, I serve The People.
It’s unfortunate that some of my GOP colleagues, who have been in Congress a lot longer than me, don’t share the outrage that Republican voters feel about the Democrat’s radical agenda!
As if a $1.9 trillion dollar woke progressive spending spree with only 9% to covid isn’t enough.
Dems destroying women’s rights and sports, wiping out religious freedoms, defunding the police, HR1, and erasing gender completely, doesn’t seem to be enough to make some of my GOP colleagues feel like they can actually stand up out of a chair and walk to go vote for a motion to adjourn.
They’d rather sit on committee zoom meetings where they are mute and their hands are tied doing nothing.
I call for motions to adjourn so that the Democrats can have at least another hour to come to their senses before they vote for this kind of crap.
Oddly, some of my GOP colleagues don’t share my outrage and are annoyed with me, for trying to do anything I possibly can to disrupt and stop the Democrats from destroying our country.
They’re annoyed because it was a little inconvenient and I didn’t tell them ahead of time, so they could just complain to me and try to convince me not to do it.
Sure I understand that the swamp operates a certain way and everyone is frustrated with me that I just don’t dive right off the high dive and plunge right into the murky disgusting slime and just do as I’m told. But I should remind everyone I wasn’t recruited by “those in charge” to run for Congress.
I ran because I’m very much one of those Neanderthal Deplorable Invisible Taxpaying Regular People. You know the type of person that is supposed to just donate, vote, keep your mouth shut, and “support” the elected Republicans that know way more than us little folks that run businesses, employ people and pay taxes.
You know what made me run for Congress?
In 2016-2018, when the GOP controlled House and Senate couldn’t manage to repeal Obamacare, fund our border wall, did NOT end abortion (even though they all say they are pro-life), and did nothing to stop the ridiculous mind numbing Russian collusion conspiracy theory witch hunt on President Trump.
I along with MOST Republican voters lost full confidence in MANY of the Republicans we elect.
How dare I say this out loud right? In spite of having President Trump who wanted to sign into law so many good things that R voters desperately wanted, our Republican Congress failed and that’s why they lost the House in 2018.
But so many of these Republicans still don’t seem to get it. The House took back seats in 2020 and nearly won the majority BECAUSE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP AND AMERICA FIRST POLICIES!
Why do you think Republican voters love Trump?
Because HE FOUGHT FOR THE PEOPLE!
He didn’t join the swamp to do business as usual that doesn’t work! So for some of my GOP colleagues who think sitting on your ass on zoom committee meeting where you are powerless and Democrats could care less about your ideas, is actually important.
AND that calendars and schedules matter so much, when Pelosi changes it every week. AND zoom calls with your Chambers of Commerces and constituents where you are spouting off about how you are “doing everything you can” to stop the radical insane policies of the Dems, yet you are whining about walking to go vote for a motion to adjourn. Here is a little reminder for you.
Trump is not on the ticket in 2022.
So you better think hard about how your whining sounds to your voters, who really don’t care about how far you have to walk to vote.
Instead, let’s change the playbook so we can win!
