Adam Schiff Emasculates Kevin McCarthy: ‘He’ll Do What Marjorie Taylor Greene Wants Him To Do’

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) — who will probably be the next Speaker of the House — said Sunday that he plans to remove Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) from the House Intelligence Committee.

During an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, McCarthy remarked:

“Eric Swalwell cannot get a security clearance in the public sector. Why would we ever give him a security clearance in the secrets to America? So I will not allow him to be on Intel. You have Adam Schiff, who had lied to the American public time and again. We will not allow him to be on the Intel Committee either.”

But rather than whine about McCarthy’s threat, Schiff calmly told Jonathan Karl of ABC News that the would-be Speaker won’t be running things even though he may carry the title of Speaker of the House.

“Well, I suspect he will do whatever Marjorie Taylor Greene wants him to do. He is a very weak leader of his conference, meaning that he will adhere to the wishes of the lowest common denominator. And if that lowest common denominator wants to remove people from committees, that’s what they’ll do.

“It’s going to be chaos with the Republican leadership and sadly, the kind of the crazy caucus has grown among the Republicans. Many Republicans who won primaries in deeply red districts are coming to Congress like the Marjorie Taylor Greenes and Paul Gosars and it’s a tragedy for the country.”

Schiff is right: The extremists will be in charge when Republicans take control of the House in January. Greene, Lauren Boebert, and other nutjobs are going to be calling the shots, with McCarthy allowing them to do whatever they want, no matter how absurd.

Thankfully, there’s another election just two years away, and we hand the House, Senate, and White House to the responsible party and truly make this country great.

Adam Kinzinger Predicts Kevin McCarthy Won’t ‘Last Very Long’ As Speaker

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said Sunday that even if House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) does indeed become Speaker of the House in the next Congress, he won’t last very long because he’ll be hostage to the most extreme elements of the Republican caucus.

Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Kinzinger was asked by host Jake Tapper what kind of Speaker he thought McCarthy would be, to which the Illinois Republican replied:

“If you had asked me five years ago, I would have said a pretty good one. Now, I think he has cut so many deals with bad people to get to this position that I think he’s not going to be a leader.”

Kinzinger then elaborated on his prediction:

“I think he’ll be completely hostage to kind of the extreme wings of the Republican Party. And I frankly don’t think he’s going to last very long, Maybe he’ll prove me wrong but it’s sad to see a man that I think had so much potential just totally sell himself. He’s the one that resurrected Donald Trump. The second he went to Mar-a-Lago a week or two after Jan. 6, he resurrected Donald Trump politically. So he owns everything that Trump says now.”

Indeed, McCarthy has sold what was left of his soul to the most extreme elements of the GOP, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who is expected to get assignment on a couple of the most powerful committees in Congress, Judiciary and Oversight.

Kevin McCarthy is about to find out that when you make a deal with the devil, your soul gets lost in the transaction. Provided that McCarthy had a soul in the first place.

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Divorce Proceedings Won’t Be Sealed And That’s A BIG Problem For Her  

When he filed for divorce last week, Perry Greene — husband of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) — asked a superior judge to seal the proceedings in the interest of privacy.

Now, however, Perry has changed his mind, according to Charles Bethea of The New Yorker.

Public record could be a very big and embarrassing problem for Ms. Greene in light of the allegations made of her sexual dalliances with several men while she was married, especially since she is fond of painting herself as some sort of warrior for holiness and even claims to be a “strong conservative Christian.”

The Daily Mail first reported on the congresswoman’s alleged extramarital affairs in February of last year:

Controversial conspiracy congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene cheated on her husband with a polyamorous tantric sex guru, has learned.

Then after ending her affair with him, the mom-of-three moved on to a gym manager behind her husband’s back.

But despite the tawdry flings, Taylor Greene stuck with her husband Perry as she made her unlikely rise that has turned her into the most talked-about Republican in Washington, D.C.

Another problem for Rep. Greene now that the divorce proceedings will be public is the matter of her personal finances, which could provide insight where she gets what money she has. Could some of her finances be provided by shadowy right-wing figures and corporations she’s indebted to which have caused her to vote one way or the other on legislation?

And then there’s the issue of paternity, which could determine who gets custody of the Greene’s three children. Are the children all by Perry Greene, or could some of them have a different father?

It should be more than a little interesting to see what trickles out of the divorce filing in the weeks ahead, especially with the congresswoman having to face voters in the upcoming midterm election.

Congress Donald Trump Impeachment WTF?!

Trump Thought He Could ‘Sue’ Congress For Daring To Impeach Him: Report

After the House of Representatives voted to impeach failed, one-term former president Donald Trump in 2019 for pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of his Democratic presidential rival, Joe Biden, the clueless Trump wanted to sue Congress for taking such an action, even though impeachment is clearly spelled out in the U.S. Constitution.

That, according to HuffPost, is one of the revelations in a new book from New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America.

“I’ll just sue Congress. They can’t do this to me,” Trump said, according to excerpts from Haberman’s book.

And that’s not the only head-shaking moment in Haberman’s book.

There was also a scene in debate prep when Trump humiliated himself, which seems to be the only thing he excels at.

The book also details comments by Trump during preparation for a debate in which former Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus ― while pretending to be a transgender student ― asked the then-candidate if she could use the girls’ bathroom, CNN reported.

“I have a question, cocked or decocked?” Trump reportedly asked before receiving “blank stares” and making a “chopping gesture.”

“With cock or without cock?” he continued.

Confidence Man will be released on October 4.


Capitol Insurrection Congress January 6

January 6 Investigation Likely To Continue Even If GOP Wins The House – Here’s How

Even if Republicans do manage to win control of the House of Representatives in the upcoming midterm elections, the ongoing investigation of what took place on January 6, 2021 will continue, according to a member of the House Select Committee looking into the attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Committee member Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said Sunday during an appearance on “Meet the Press” that work will indeed proceed to determine exactly who played what role in the insurrection, which left five people dead. Evidence is being preserved so that others can continue the work of the committee

Raskin was asked by host Chuck Todd:

“So if the Democrats hold the Senate though, you’ll know this in December? If Democrats hold the Senate or if Democrats lose the House, do you send your investigative materials over to the Judiciary Committee and Dick Durbin?”


“Well, we’re going to make sure that our investigative materials are made public and are available for the future. And we’re going to preserve them. We’re not going to allow them to be destroyed.”

That led Todd to inquire:

“But it’s my understanding, the investigation, I’m told you’ve got so much evidence that you can’t finish this up by the end of the calendar year. You do need more time. The president could create a committee by executive order to finish this job. And Liz Cheney’s not going to be in Congress, maybe she’s one of the co-chairs. Do you do that to preserve this investigation?”

The congressman replied:

“Look. It would have been a lot better, had Donald Trump essentially not gotten the Republicans in the House to veto the creation of an independent, 9/11-style commission. But we’re going to make sure that all of the evidence is preserved. But the main thing is this coming Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. And in our report, we want America to understand there was a premeditated and deliberate hit on American democracy in attempt to override the will of the people. And the forces that supported that are still out there and would gladly do it again. And a lot of them are running for high offices, like Mastriano in Pennsylvania. These are people who are election-deniers who are committed basically to their party winning, regardless of who actually won the election.”

Despite their pledge to end the probe of what transpired on Jan. 6, it’s now clear that Republicans will be powerless to do so. The Senate can take up the case and follow through on the House’s work. President Biden can also appoint a commission that would do so. That means more damaging evidence will be available to the public, which is a serious threat to both the GOP and Donald Trump.
