MTG Claims The Phrase ‘Jewish Space Lasers’ Hurt Her Feelings As A Christian

If you’ve followed the bizarre and often offensive rantings from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), you may recall that she once blamed the wildfires in California on “lasers.”

Back in January of last year, Media Matters reported on Greene’s claim regarding lasers, which she posted on Facebook:

Rep. Greene is a proponent of the Camp Fire laser beam conspiracy theory. She wrote a November 17, 2018, Facebook post — which is no longer available online — in which she said that she was speculating “because there are too many coincidences to ignore” regarding the fire, including that then-California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) wanted to build the high-speed rail project and “oddly there are all these people who have said they saw what looked like lasers or blue beams of light causing the fires.” She also speculated that a vice chairman at “Rothschild Inc, international investment banking firm” was somehow involved, and suggested the fire was caused by a beam from “space solar generators.” 

Greene added: “If they are beaming the suns energy back to Earth, I’m sure they wouldn’t ever miss a transmitter receiving station right??!! I mean mistakes are never made when anything new is invented. What would that look like anyway? A laser beam or light beam coming down to Earth I guess. Could that cause a fire? Hmmm, I don’t know. I hope not! That wouldn’t look so good for PG&E, Rothschild Inc, Solaren or Jerry Brown who sure does seem fond of PG&E.” 

Now, however, Marj wants us to believe that reporting on what she posted has hurt her feelings, so she went and whined to fellow right-wing asshat Mike Huckabee, telling him:

“Terrible attacks, especially about silly things about something called ‘Jewish space lasers.’ That was a term I had never used in my life but someone wrote an article and then they copied and pasted and put it all across the media.

“That really hurt my feelings. Because I’m a Christian and I would never say anything against any group of people, especially Israel. I would never do that.”

Hurt her feelings? Really? Don’t you have to be a living, sentient being to have those?

Congress GOP Viral Video WTF?!

Viral Video Shows Paul Gosar Behaving Erratically And Unable To Speak At Trump Rally

Something is terribly wrong with Arizona GOP Rep. Paul Gosar, and it goes way beyond his extremist right-wing political views and fondness for batshit crazy conspiracy theories.

Gosar was one of the speakers at failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump’s rally in Florence, Arizona, on Saturday evening, but when the congressman began speaking, his head swayed back and forth and he was unable to complete some of his sentences. Take a look:

That’s not just sad, it’s pathetic.

Granted, it’d be tempting to say that karma is catching up with Gosar, but many who saw the video couldn’t help but express concern for him, which is something he’s never done for anyone else. After all, this is the same Paul Gosar who posted an anime video of him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and President Joe Biden back in November.

Here’s some of the reaction to Gosar’s bizarre behavior:

Congress GOP Gun Nuts WTF?!

Marjorie Taylor Greene Suggests It May Be Necessary To Use The ‘Second Amendment’ On Democrats

Not content to have allegedly been a part of the January 6 Capitol insurrection, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is now suggesting that it may be time to use guns on her Democratic opponents.

Greene was speaking to disgraced former Trump administration aide Sebastian Gorka as part of his pathetic excuse of a radio show which appears on the right-wing Salem Network when she brought up the subject of Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who Greene claims is wrong on the issues of gun rights and the COVID vaccine:

“Ultimately the truth is it’s our Second Amendment rights, our right to bear arms, that protects Americans and give us the ability to defend ourselves from a tyrannical government. And I hate to use this language but Democrats, they’re exactly — they’re doing exactly what our Founders talked about when they gave us the precious rights that we have.”

She hates to use this language? No she doesn’t! She’s happy to use threats and fear to rile up her extremist base of supporters who are still convinced that Donald Trump won the 2020 election and is second only to Jesus in their bigoted brains.

Of course, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Greene would be spouting such dangerous rhetoric. After all, she’s been doing it since she first announced her candidacy.

According to CNN, Greene has a history of calling for violence against anyone who disagrees with her:

In one post, from January 2019, Greene liked a comment that said “a bullet to the head would be quicker” to remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In other posts, Greene liked comments about executing FBI agents who, in her eyes, were part of the “deep state” working against Trump.

Oh, and then there was this, also aimed at Pelosi:

“She’s a traitor to our country, she’s guilty of treason,” Greene says in the video, which she posted on Facebook at the time. “She took an oath to protect American citizens and uphold our laws. And she gives aid and comfort to our enemies who illegally invade our land. That’s what treason is. And by our law representatives and senators can be kicked out and no longer serve in our government. And it’s, uh, it’s a crime punishable by death is what treason is. Nancy Pelosi is guilty of treason.”

Maybe the voters in Greene’s district will do us all a favor and un-elect her in November. In the meantime, she needs to be under investigation by the Justice Department for a number of crimes, including issuing terroristic threats and giving aid and comfort to traitors who tried to overthrow the U.S. government.

Jim Jordan Slammed As A ‘Dirty Traitor’ For Refusing To Comply With House 1/6 Committee

After declaring that he has “nothing to hide” about what role he may have played in the January 6 Capitol insurrection that left five people dead, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is now refusing to comply with the House Select Committee investigating the incident, which set off a wave of disgust and anger on social media, including suggestions that Jordan’s refusal proves he’s a “dirty traitor.”

The Washington Post reports Jordan made his decision public on Sunday:

In a letter dated Sunday and addressed to the committee’s chairman, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.), the Ohio Republican and close ally of former president Donald Trump accused the panel, made up of seven Democrats and two Republicans, of playing politics.

“Your attempt to pry into the deliberative process informing a Member about legislative matters before the House is an outrageous abuse of the Select Committee’s authority,” Jordan wrote in the letter, which he posted to his Twitter account Sunday.

It remains unclear if the Jan. 6 committee will now subpoena Jordan, who could be referred to the Justice Department for criminal contempt of Congress if he refuses to obey a subpoena.

In the past, Jordan has insisted he played no role in the Jan. 6 riots:

Jordan said he was unconcerned about the scrutiny. “If they call me, I got nothing to hide,” the far-right lawmaker said in July. In October, during a House Rules Committee hearing, the Ohioan echoed the sentiment, insisting, “I’ve said all along, ‘I have nothing to hide.'”

Jordan’s refusal led many on social media to suggest that he clearly fears telling what he knows because it will incriminate him and others, including failed former President Donald Trump.

Maxine Waters Humiliates Matt Gaetz: He ‘Needs To Shut Up’ And Focus On His ‘Young Girls’ Problem

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has had quite enough of Republicans in Congress whining about the anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, and she absolutely obliterated one of them with comments she made Sunday during an appearance on MSNBC.

Speaking with host Jonathan Capehart, Waters was shown a clip of Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) holding forth a fact-free press conference on Thursday.

Once the video had been shown, Waters remarked:

“Well, you know, the world watched what happened and for them to try and rewrite history and to tell people, ‘don’t believe your lying eyes.'”

And then the California Democrat brought up the fact that Gaetz is under investigation for allegedly paying underage girls to have sex with him:

“He had better be concerned about what’s happening to him, he had better be concerned about, you know, the fact that he’s been investigated and then concerns about him and young girls and on and on and on. But absolutely, to get in our faces and talk about they had no intent of hurting anybody when we’ve got five of our Capitol police who are dead, 150 of them who have been harmed? We absolutely are going to have to resist, we’re going to have to fight and we can’t let them get away with it.”

Waters was far from finished, however, and she issued one final jab at Republicans:

“I want my party to rise to this occasion and not try and think that somehow we are going to be able to work something out with them. They have defined themselves as liars, people with no integrity and they are intent on protecting [Donald] Trump and they’re all afraid of him. They are not representing even their constituents so Gaetz needs to shut up.”

Game, set, and match Maxine Waters.
