The New York Times reports:
“There’s going to be a lot of investigations,” Marjorie Taylor Greene said, describing what she anticipates if the Republicans regain the House majority this November. “I’ve talked with a lot of members about this. My style would be a lot more aggressive, of course,” she told me, referring to McCarthy.
“For him, I think the evidence needs to be there. But I think people underestimate him, in thinking he wouldn’t do it.”
“I think that to be the best speaker of the House and to please the base, he’s going to give me a lot of power and a lot of leeway,” she predicted in a flat, unemotional voice. “And if he doesn’t, they’re going to be very unhappy about it. And that’s not in any way a threat at all. I just think that’s reality.”

Reason 12.732 why we have to make sure Republicans are in the minority in both the House and Senate in November. Because nuts like MTG are determined to punish somebody for something. They don’t know why, but they will make something up to intimidate Democrats and influence their low-information base. Republicans want Fascism so badly they can taste it–so long as they’re the ones in power. VOTE like democracy depended on it, because it does.
What could possibly go wrong?
The House, if we lose it, will grind to a halt and the goldfish-brained populace will blame Biden.
They’ll do it with the help of the MSM. The MSM will cover the GQP’s framing and messaging ENDLESSLY and that will be the only political message the vast majority of the public will hear. Then the MSM will help elect a GQPer to occupy the WH in ’24.
One of America’s two main political parties sought to overthrow the Government. That party is being treated with a legitimacy that belies the truth: They sought to upend our way of life.
They still seek to upend our way of life.
“And that’s not in any way a threat at all.”
underscoring how it’s totally a threat
I’m not sure she is as powerful in that caucus as she thinks she is. Nancy’s removing her from committees was likely completely OK with McCarthy, but this will be interesting to watch if they do get back control of the House.
It’s very common for sophomore congressmen to be given lots of power – NOT. McCarthy needs to borrow Pelosi’s balls for a few days and put this harpy in her place.
McCarthy won’t make any mistakes. He needs to inject maximum punishment into the system, maximum distraction for the MSM to endlessly cover and splash into everyone’s minds, and stir up as much controversy as possible. The point will be to grind to a halt the levers of gov’t so that they can state every day that the problem and the fault of the stoppage lies squarely with Biden and any other Dems who are still in power.
More frightening than this dimwitted, belligerent Greene woman, are any voters who cast ballots for her: gullible, stupid and, most of all, mean.
She and Coach Gym would make a real pair on a committee.
Can you even imagine the bullshit?
