Lauren Boebert Issues A Press Release Saying She Plans To ‘IMEACH’ Joe Biden

Is Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) the dumbest member of Congress. If she isn’t, then she’s at least a close second place to her buddy Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who spent Friday attacking Democrats on the steps of the Capitol before Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) told her:

“Try being a Christian! And try treating your colleagues decently!”

And now we have Boebert issuing a press release to the media in which she called for the removal of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, announcing she would file an article of impeachment against them.

Problem is, in the press release, in BIG BOLD letters, impeach is spelled “IMEACH.”

In case you’re wondering, the rest of the release was also absurd:

“Joe Biden willfully abandoned his duty as President of the United States and violated his constitutional oath to ‘take care that the laws be faithfully executed’ by failing to ensure the national security of the United States and its citizens. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris handed over billions of dollars of American-made weapons to the very scum of the earth that we spent $2 trillion fighting. The Biden regime is not being held accountable. There have been no resignations, no indictments, no investigations, no congressional oversight, no outcry from the mainstream media, and no apologies—so I’m stepping up to hold Biden and Harris accountable by filing articles of impeachment for giving aid and comfort to America’s enemies and colluding with the Taliban.”

However, Boebert’s claptrap about articles of impeachment was overshadowed by her failure to proofread her press release before she shared it with the world.

Twitter quickly gave Lauren a lesson in mockery:

S. Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem Wants To Replace Health Guidelines With Mandatory School Prayer

In today’s GOP, there’s a rush by many of the supposedly “up and coming” political figures to go to the extreme right so rapidly that it’s a wonder they’re not all wearing neck braces from the freaking whiplash.

Since it remains unclear if failed, one-term former President Donald Trump will still be a free man three years from now, focus has turned to three Republican governors — Ron DeSantis of Florida, Greg Abbott of Texas, and Kristi Noem of South Dakota — as the “future” of the far right, and now that triumvirate is trying to outdo each other in a desperate attempt to be the most hardline and fascist of the bunch.

DeSantis has made his name by refusing to do everything to fight COVID-19 in the Sunshine State. Abbott, on the other hand, just signed the most extreme piece of anti-choice legislation in the country, making him the darling of the evangelical wing of the GOP.

Noem, however, appears to have taken a page from both DeSantis and Abbott, blocking mask requirements in her state, vowing to take legal action against President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate executive order, and now suggesting that mandatory prayer in schools can solve what ails the her state and the country.

In a recent interview, according to Right Wing Watch, Noem had this to say about making kids pray:

“We’ve seen our society, our culture, degrade as we’ve removed God out of our lives…. When I was growing up, we spent every Sunday, every night, every Wednesday night in church. Our church family was a part of our life. We read the Bible every day, as a family, together…. I don’t know if families do that as much anymore, and those Biblical values are learned in the family, and they’re learned in church…. We in South Dakota have decided to take action to really stand for Biblical principles…. I have legislation I’ll be proposing this year that will allow us to pray in schools again.”

Here’s the thing that Gov. Noem conveniently neglected to mention: Kids can already pray in school. Voluntary prayer has never been banned in schools. Only mandatory prayer, which raises another question: Who will lead these prayers? Will there only be Christian prayers, or will Jewish and Muslim prayers also be offered up on a rotating basis? And what about kids who come from families that are agnostic or atheist. Do they have to sit and listen to a prayer, too?

Gov. Noem (just like DeSantis and Abbott) is overlooking the massive public health crisis in her state and trying to change the subject. It remains to be seen if voters at a national level will fall for this deadly bait and switch. If they do, all the prayer in the world won’t be able to save this country.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Just Took The First Step To Running For President In 2024

In a sign that she may seek the 2024 Republican presidential nomination if failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump doesn’t run, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) will appear later this month at the Iowa State Fair, which is virtually a prerequisite for any candidate seeking the White House.

Jennifer Jacobs of Bloomberg reports:

“Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Republican congresswoman from Georgia known for espousing debunked conspiracy theories, plans to appear this month at the Iowa State Fair, according to people familiar with her plans. The gathering is a traditional platform for White House aspirants.

“It’s not yet clear whether Greene will speak at the event on Aug. 19 or just attend it. The Des Moines Register this year isn’t planning to organize a Soap Box, which politicians in the past have used to raise their profiles for a national campaign.”

On Tuesday, Greene attacked two of her House colleagues for daring to call for a continuation of the eviction moratorium which was first put into place when the COVID pandemic hit in the United States.

According to Greene, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Cori Bush (D-MO) had been protesting on the steps of the Capitol and turned it “into a homeless camp.”

Today, Greene took to Twitter and blatantly lied that the COVID-19 vaccine had caused pregnant women to have miscarriages, but provided absolutely no proof of her specious claim:

Greene is also fervently loyal to Trump and travels the country with accused sex trafficker Matt Gaetz (R-FL) in a pathetic effort to overturn the 2020 election which Trump lost to President Joe Biden, who also received the most votes in U.S. history.

If indeed Greene runs for the GOP nomination, she could actually win. The party has devolved into that level of insanity and idiocy. But if she does become the Republican presidential nominee, she’ll likely lose by a bigger margin than Trump did.

Lauren Boebert Says She’s Like Moses Because She’s Fighting Communism For God

According to Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), she’s a lot like Moses from the Bible because God has given her “perseverance” over communism.

Speaking Sunday at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit (a.k.a the Trump/Hitler Youth Brigade), Boebert said proof of God’s blessing is the fact that her restaurant, Shooters Grill, is still open:

“I put my faith and trust in God and I said if I commit my actions to the Lord, my plans will be successful. And now Shooters Grill has been open for eight years.”

Oh, and Boebert also proudly declared that despite her endless self-promotion, what she does isn’t the least bit about her or her massive ego:

“And this has never been about me. This is about liberty, this is about freedom, the American dream. This is about you. And that’s why this movement is not slowing down. And that right there is where boldness becomes perseverance.”

Is it the same “movement” that helped failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump lose by over 7 million votes? If so, the so-called “movement” may want to rethink its place in the political world.

The reason she is able to persevere in Congress, Boebert told attendees, is because God is involved in every decision she makes:

“When I have a bold idea, I am able to persevere because that idea is usually bigger than me. And I know if it’s bigger than me, God has to be involved!”

When was the last time Boebert had a bold idea other than shooting off her mouth and proving her own massive ignorance and bigotry? And no idea of hers will ever be big because it came from her incredibly small brain.

That’s when she made the comparison to Moses, which should have been enough to at least get a loud rumble of angry thunder from the heavens:

“Right after God said that to Moses, he said, why are you crying out to me, tell the people [to] go forward with what is in your hand

“So I’m telling you all now, be bold, persevere, and go forward with what is in your hand right now.”

What did Boebert have in her hand when she said that? A microphone, her favorite weapon of self-aggrandizement and grifting. She’s a typical Republican: In it for herself, and to hell with everyone else.

Before she left the stage, the Colorado congresswoman let the crowd know that her similarities to Moses have allowed her to “take on” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Cuban communists.

It’s a wonder Lauren didn’t slip and fall on some of that bullshit she left standing knee high on the stage from her verbal diarrhea.

Here’s the video:

Lauren Boebert Terrifies Her Fellow Republicans By Calling For An End To All Federal Benefits

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) may have cost Republicans any chance of winning the 2022 midterm elections, and she did it by saying out loud what many in the GOP have been dreaming about for decades.

Boebert decided she wanted to make a point about the federal government offering to help Americans, so she went full-tilt and said conservatives want to eliminate all federal benefits, telling attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC):

“We’re here to tell government: ‘We don’t want your benefits. We don’t want your welfare. Don’t come to us with your Fauci ouchie. Leave us the hell alone!'”

The very idea of cutting Medicare and Social Security is considered to be the the proverbial “third rail” of American politics and has consistently proven to be political poison, especially for Republicans.

It’s especially ironic that Boebert would rail against welfare since she loves to brag that she was helped by federal and state programs:

Now that she’s getting her salary and benefits courtesy of American taxpayers, however, Ms. Boebert wants to leave the neediest among us high and dry. In other words, she’s a typical conservative: A hypocrite.

HuffPost notes that in recent years Republicans have chosen to shower the rich and big corporations with corporate welfare:

“Boebert’s party has no problem cranking up benefits for the wealthy. Under the Trump administration’s tax cut — pitched as a boon to the middle class — 60% of the benefits went to the richest 20% of Americans, with the largest cuts as a share of income going to the top 5%. Corporate taxes were slashed 40%. 

“As for the Paycheck Protection Program during Donald Trump’s administration, most of the aid went to bigger companies, with just 5% of recipients scarfing up more than half of the $525 billion that went out the door.”

Boebert’s remarks were met with harsh reaction on social media:

Let’s see if Lauren Boebert actually believes the bullshit she peddles. Let’s see her return her congressional salary and benefits to the U.S. Treasury. Willing to put your money where your big mouth is, Lauren?
