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.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Claims She’s Appointed Herself To The House Oversight Committee

Even though the next Congress hasn’t even been seated (and won’t be until January 3 of 2023), Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) seemed to announce Wednesday that she has appointed herself to the House Oversight Committee.

Speaking with right-wing activist Charlie Kirk, Greene was asked how she could be certain that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will agree to a extreme conservative agenda if he becomes Speaker of the House, including subpoenas for Dr. Anthony Fauci and others close to President Joe Biden.

Greene insisted that McCarthy will be true to his word:

“He has said publicly that we are going to do all of these investigations into everything you just named. We are definitely doing these investigations and he’s allowing the chairmen of the committees to run it.”

She then added:

“I’m very excited to serve on Oversight. That’s the committee I’ve asked for and no one has told me no about anything. I am going to be pursuing many things and I’m thrilled to be able to do that.”

You may recall that Greene was stripped of all her committee assignments in 2021 after she spread bizarre conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic comments about “space lasers” controlled by Jews that were causing wildfires in California.

Just last month, Greene made it clear that she expects McCarthy to kowtow to her every whim if she agrees to support him as Speaker, commenting:

“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. And if he doesn’t, they’re going to be very unhappy about it. I think that’s the best way to read that. And that’s not in any way a threat at all. I just think that’s reality.”

Greene also let it be known what committees she most coveted being a member of:

“I would like to be on Oversight. I would also like to be on Judiciary. I think both of those I’d be good on.”

Greene doesn’t have a law degree and has never practiced law, yet she wants to be on the Judiciary Committee.

Then again, Greene also has a non-functioning brain and yet she’s allowed to serve in Congress rather than being booted from the House and sent back home to North Georgia where she can sleep with as many redneck pieces of trash that are desperate enough to have her.

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Irony Rich Post About ‘Candidate Quality’ Gets Her Lit Up On Twitter

Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene thinks she knows why her party failed to win big in the 2022 midterm election, but her theory led to mockery and ridicule when she shared it on social media.

In a Twitter thread she posted Friday, Greene said she “truly” believes “one of the most important paths to saving America is by having as many strong Republican governors as possible” and “keeping them in place.” She added:

“How about candidate quality, individual campaign work ethic & ability, and their campaign strategies?”

Greene also took the ubiquitous right-wing shots at the media, which is a requirement for Republicans even though they have Fox News pumping out their propaganda 24/7.

But it was Greene’s call for “candidate quality” that drew the most commentary and mockery on Twitter. After all, if such a thing actually mattered, the congresswoman would never have been elected (much less reelected) to the seat she currently holds.

Or, as one person noted, “Irony is dead.”

MT Greene Humiliates Herself By Suggesting The GOP’s Enemies Are ‘Quacking In Their Boots’

As votes continue to be counted in several key congressional races across the country. it has become clear over the last 48 hours that Republicans underperformed in spectacular fashion when it comes to the midterm elections.

One member of the GOP who did win was Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), whose heavily gerrymandered district helped her glide to a second term in office.

Despite the underwhelming results for Republicans, Greene took to Twitter and posted this :

A few minutes later, Greene realized her mistake and posted another tweet:

Quacking would probably be more appropriate since there’s no reason anyone should be afraid of a political party that is being dragged down by failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump and appears less relevant by the day.

Greene was mocked for not bothering to proof her tweet before hitting “send,” and some of the replies are pure gold.

MT Greene Says Suggested Sentence For Steve Bannon Is ‘What Communist Regimes Do’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is absolutely furious that the Justice Department is recommending that former Trump administration political adviser Steve Bannon be sentenced to 6 months in prison and fined $200,000

But rather than discuss or debate the issue in a rational manner, Greene went on Twitter and posted a fact-free defense of Bannon that even included a bogus allegation that such things only happen in “communist regimes.”

“The DOJ wants Steve Bannon to serve 6 mo in jail & pay $200,000 in fines because he used his First Amendment right of freedom of speech on his show to defend himself publicly and they are offended by his speech,” wrote Greene. “This is what communist regimes do, not guardians of ‘democracy.'”

Freedom of speech on his show? Bannon is in legal trouble because he refused to testify after receiving a legal subpoena from the January 6 House Select Committee. He was convicted on two charges of contempt of Congress, not for any of the bullshit conspiracy theories he spins on his pathetic podcast.

Greene — much like Bannon and former president Donald Trump — claims to believe in “law and order,” and yet they don’t think the laws apply to them or their right-wing cohorts.

The Georgia Republican got plenty of pushback on social media.
