GOP Whining Gun Crime Gun Nuts

WATCH Ted Cruz Get Roundly Booed When He Says More Guns Are The Solution To Mass Shootings

Despite having zero proof that more guns are the way to stop mass shootings in the United States, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Saturday at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin that the only way to stop bad guys with guns is to give even more guns to the good guys and anyone else who wants one, or even a hundred.

In other words, Cruz was spouting the same bullshit every member of the GOP clings to because they’re owned by companies that manufacture weapons of mass murder.

Cruz told attendees:

“Whenever you have a mass murder … you have Democrats in Washington, the step they immediately go to is we need to take away firearms from law-abiding citizens. OK, you can clap for that except for the minor problem that it doesn’t work. If the objective is to stop these crimes, gun control is singularly ineffective.”

Of course, the same could be said about lack of gun control, which is clearly not doing a damn thing to decrease shootings.

Instead, Cruz suggested the country adopt his plan:

“If you want to stop crime, you target the bad guys. You target the criminals, the felons, the fugitives. You prosecute them, you put them in jail, you get them off the streets, and you also enhance security at vulnerable targets.”

The Texas Republican said the same was true for shootings at schools:

“Two weeks ago, I stood on the Senate floor and tried to pass legislation I’ve introduced that would double the number of police officers in school. If we want to keep our kids safe, and I desperately want to keep our kids safe, the most effective step we can do is to have police officers there to protect them who can intercept a mass murderer before he gets into the school and stop them.”

Loud boos and jeering could be heard among those listening to Cruz, who continued to spout platitudes he likely got directly from the NRA:

“Look, if you have a solution to stop the deranged evil murderers, I’d love to hear it. My solution is to throw them in jail. Stop them before they commit these crimes. There are some we won’t know about beforehand, and the single best step to stop them is to have armed officers on campus that can stop them before they kill our kids.

“But look, instead you guys can instead sing kumbaya with them and hope they’ll just stop, but what you’re proposing doesn’t work.”

Neither does what you’re proposing, Ted, and there’s a river of blood flowing across this country that proves so.

Congress GOP Whining Joe Biden WTF?!

Marjorie Taylor Greene Says She’s Plans To Impeach Joe Biden For Supporting Renewable Energy

Ever since she arrived in Congress two years ago, it’s been clear that Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is nothing but a shameless self-promoter who will do anything to advance her political career and nothing to actually help her constituents back home.

Greene is also a disciple of disgraced, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump, whom she supports no matter what crime he commits or laws he breaks.

And now Greene is admitting she wants payback for the fact that Trump was impeached twice, insisting that she intends to file articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden for the crime of supporting renewable energy such as that produced by the sun and wind.

Appearing on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast, Greene proudly announced:

“Because they’re driving the Green New Deal which is going to plunge America into darkness and that will lead to death and all kinds of issues across America. We simply cannot exist on solar and wind energy at this time. The technology is not there and there’s no reason to destroy fossil fuels.”

Greene added:

“And because of that, Steve, it’s such a dangerous threat. No president should be doing that. I have articles prepared on Joe Biden and we’re looking at introducing those possibly as early as this week.”

It probably won’t surprise you to learn that what Green said is complete bullshit, as the Yale University School of Environment has explained:

In reality, it is entirely possible to sustain a reliable electricity system based on renewable energy sources plus a combination of other means, including improved methods of energy management and storage. A clearer understanding of how to dependably manage electricity supply is vital because climate threats require a rapid shift to renewable sources like solar and wind power.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is a imbecile.

GOP Whining Joe Biden WTF?!

Marjorie Taylor Greene Whines That Joe Biden Is Trying To Incite ‘Violence’ Against Her

A day after she shared a video on Twitter which portrayed President Joe Biden as Adolf Hitler, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) changed tactics and tried to paint herself as a victim of Biden’s remarks on Thursday in which he slammed MAGA Republicans as “an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

Greene was in attendance Saturday at a “Loser’s Tour” rally being held by disgraced, one-term, twice impeached former president Donald Trump in Pennsylvania, and she immediately found the nearest camera and microphone so she could begin whining:

“They’re using their position of power, and they have declared war on all of us because Joe Biden basically said in his speech that we’re the enemies of the state, and he’s calling us extremists, and so that’s a dog whistle for violence against MAGA Republicans, and it is a continued dog whistle of violence against me.”

How exactly did the president target Greene for violence? She must be one of those fascist MAGA Republicans if she thinks Biden was aiming his remarks at her. As we say in the South, A hit dog always hollers.

President Biden is trying to warn the nation that the current iteration of the GOP is in some says an extremist group. For anyone who doubts that, consider the evidence:

  • Republicans have repeatedly said the 2020 election should be invalidated.
  • Many in the GOP have supported the actions of the rioters who attacked the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
  • People such as Greene continue to use inflammatory language about how they intend to take control of the country, no matter what they have to do in order to accomplish that goal.

Maybe if Marjorie Greene and some of her more radical colleagues would call for calm and debate instead of trying to turn everything into a shooting war, this country could actually heal and come together in a productive fashion.

Elections GOP Whining U.S. Senate

As He Fades In The Polls, Ron Johnson Whines: ‘People Think I’m A Tool Of Russia’

Everything is falling apart for Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson as he tries to win re-election, and yet he can’t accept the reason he’s fading in the polls is because voters in the Badger State are sick and tired of his excuses and lies.

Johnson was on Fox News this morning to whine that he’s behind in the polls to his Democratic challenger, Mandela Barnes, because Democrats are engaging in voter suppression by trying to paint him as a “tool” of Russia.

During the interview, Fox host Maria Bartiromo suggested that there was every reason to “distrust” the validity of elections in the United States:

“That was part of what went on in 2020. People were questioning. Well, can we trust them? We know what they just did in the Russia collusion hoax.

“You say they are interfering with your election, because of these smears on you.”

She then added:

“Tell me about your opponent and why you believe you are being smeared and this is the result: 50% for [Mandela] Barnes, 46% for Johnson in the Wisconsin senate race [polls].”

Democrats “interfered in the 2020 election far greater than anything Russia or China could ever do,” Johnson insisted, alleging that Democrats leaked a document showing his connections to Russia.

“Basically saying that I’m a tool of Russia, which I am not. It’s a completely false accusation. The Wisconsin press picks that up and [some] people in Wisconsin think I’m a tool of Vladimir Putin.

“Nothing could be further from the truth. But they have smeared me publicly and they just might impact the 2022 election here in Wisconsin as well. Because, let’s face it, Maria, they do not want me reelected because I would be chairman on the permanent subcommittee on investigations. They know I will investigate their corruption.”

What the senator neglected to mention, however, is why exactly he’s seen as a “tool” of Russia: Because he and other Republicans visited Moscow on July 4, 2018, as was reported by Roll Call:

One of the Republican senators back from a trip to Moscow is suggesting that Congress went too far in punishing Russia for meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

“I’ve been pretty upfront that the election interference — as serious as that was, and unacceptable — is not the greatest threat to our democracy,” Sen. Ron Johnson said in an interview with the Washington Examiner published over the weekend. “We’ve blown it way out of proportion.”

“We need to really honestly assess what actually happened, what effect did it have, and what effect are our sanctions actually having, positively and negatively,” the Republican from Wisconsin said.

Why would people think Johnson is a tool of Russia? Probably because he acts, looks, and talks just like one.

GOP Whining Joe Biden The Biden Administration

Marjorie Taylor Greene Is ENRAGED That Joe Biden Referred To Her As ‘What’s Her Name’

Now that President Joe Biden and his administration have decided to take off the gloves and fight back against the conspiracy theories, lies, and obstruction of Republicans, GOP members of Congress are finding out what it’s like when a good verbal barb hits home.

Take Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), one of the nastiest human beings on the face of the planet, a woman who goes out of her way to troll those she disagrees with (usually on Twitter), who was apoplectic this week when the president announced student loan debt relief for millions of Americans.

In response, Greene remarked:

“For for our government just to say, you know, ‘okay, well your debt is completely forgiven.’ Obviously they have an agenda for that they need votes in November. So the timing is a pure coincidence there as well, but it’s completely unfair and taxpayers all over the country, taxpayers that never took out a student loan, taxpayers that pay their bills and and you know, maybe even never went to college or just hard-working people. They shouldn’t have to pay off the great big student loan debt for some college student that piled up massive debt going to some Ivy League school. That’s not fair.”

That led the White House to remind Greene that her family business took a rather large sum of money in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans that were later forgiven by the federal government.

The Georgia Republican was so upset that about all she could manage to offer in response was to tell the president to “Go to hell.” Of course, if he was going to, the first person he’d see in Hades would be Greene, who is probably a tour guide.

But the president was far from finished with Ms. Greene, telling reporters when asked about her comments:

“I found it absolutely fascinating that some of the folks who were talking about [how] this is big spending are the same people who got $158,000 in PPP money.”

When he tried to give an example, Biden either couldn’t think of Greene’s name or (even better) deliberately refused to call her by name, which would be the ultimate diss.

That absolutely enraged Greene, as was clear by how she reacted on Twitter:

“Well if his dementia wasn’t so bad he could remember. At least President Trump knows everyone’s name. Joe is a career politician that knows nothing about making payroll during a tyrannical government shutdown. He only knows how to buy votes.”

That’s when Twitter took over and got the last laugh on Margie Three Toes.
