Marjorie Taylor Greene Demands The US Pull Out Of NATO And Let Putin Destroy Ukraine

On Wednesday, President Joe Biden announced a significant increase of the U.S. military presence in Europe, including additional naval destroyers stationed in Spain, two F-35 fighter jet squadrons in the United Kingdom, and a headquarters in Poland for the U.S. 5th Army Corps.

Making the announcement, Biden noted:

“The United States and our allies, we’re going to step up. We’re proving that NATO is more needed now than it ever has been and it’s as important as it ever has been.”

Shortly after Biden made his remarks, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) went on Twitter and proved her complete ignorance of foreign and military policy while also making it crystal clear where her true loyalty lies.

Of course, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Congresswoman Greene (along with the vast majority of the Republican Party) is once again siding with Russian President and mass murderer Vladimir Putin and against our NATO allies.

Greene got pelted with derision for her ignorant tweet.

Resurfaced Video Shows John McCain Accusing Rand Paul Of ‘Working For Vladimir Putin’

On Thursday, a $39.8 billion package of aid for Ukraine was blocked in the U.S. Senate by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).

Why did Paul block the bill? Well, here’s what he offered as his explanation:

The senator faced backlash over his opposition but said he stands by his decision. “My oath of office is to the U.S. Constitution, not to any foreign nation,” Paul tweeted Thursday evening, repeating his remarks on the Senate floor. While he said he sympathizes with the Ukrainian people, Paul added that the United States “cannot continue to spend money we don’t have” because doing so is “threatening our own national security.”

The fact that Paul is the only U.S. senator to take such a ridiculous stance at a time when Ukraine is beating back Russian troops led to a deep dive into the video vault and the resurfacing of a clip of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) accusing Paul of “working for Vladimir Putin” in 2017, according to Newsweek:

“So I repeat again – the senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin,” the late senator said in the short video.

In the clip, McCain was discussing NATO membership for the Balkan nation of Montenegro. Paul had blocked a vote to ratify a treaty that would have allowed Montenegro to join the U.S.-led military alliance by refusing to agree to unanimous consent.

That led Paul to fire back at McCain a day later:

 “You know, I think he makes a really, really strong case for term limits. I think maybe he’s past his prime; I think maybe he’s gotten a little bit unhinged.”

Five years later, Rand Paul is still Putin’s favorite senator, and his grandstanding could well result in the deaths of more people in the besieged nation of Ukraine. The Kentucky Republican needs to get his head out of his ass and support our Ukrainian allies.

WATCH Jamie Raskin Put Marjorie Taylor Greene On Full Blast For Being A ‘Cheerleader’ For Putin

Why is it that so many Republicans seem incapable of calling out Russian President/mass murderer Vladimir Putin for being a brutal and evil dictator whose military has committed numerous war crimes during their invasion of Ukraine?

It began with failed, one-term former President Donald Trump, who absolutely refused to say anything negative about Putin, leading some to suggest that the Russian leader had some sort of kompromat (i.e. damaging information) on the Donald.

Now, however, it seems that everywhere you look members of the GOP are making excuses for Putin and Russia, with Rand Paul even suggesting during a Senate hearing on Wednesday that talk of NATO expansion led to Russia invading Ukraine.

Also guilty of being a Putin apologist is Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who said this in March:

“If we truly care about suffering and death on our television screens, we cannot fund more of it by sending money and weaponry to fight a war they cannot possibly win! The only effect of more arms and more money from America will be to prolong the war!”

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) has clearly had enough, and he lit into Greene today during a floor debate on expanding President Joe Biden’s authority to arm Ukraine:

“All of these efforts to distract us from the issue at hand are meant to cover up the very clear pro-Russia and pro-Putin faction at the heart of their side of the aisle.

“Last month, in March of this year, the very distinguished gentlelady from Georgia on a radio show called The Voice of Rural America, and she followed Donald Trump’s sickening appeasement of Vladimir Putin and blamed Ukraine for the situation.”

But Congressman Raskin was far from finished, adding:

“She said, ‘You see, Ukraine just kept poking the bear, and poking the bear, which is Russia, and Russia invaded. There’s no win for Ukraine here. Russia is successful in this invasion.’

“We have members of Congress who are cheerleaders for Vladimir Putin and are voices of nothing but defeatism, fatalism, and pessimism for democracy in Europe, so they try to distract us with a lot of phony rhetoric about other issues.”

It needed to be said, and Jamie Raskin said it perfectly.

Hannity Urges Trump To Denounce Putin – Failed POTUS Rants About NATO Instead

Failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump was asked by Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday evening during a phone interview if he thought Russian mass murderer Vladimir Putin was evil.

Rather than denounce Putin, Trump attacked the NATO alliance.

Hannity asked the ex-president:

“I asked you the last time you were on, whether you think that this is evil in our time. Do you believe this is evil in our time?”

Trump replied:

“I think in 100 years people are gonna look back and they’re gonna say, how did we stand back and NATO stand back, which in many ways I’ve called the paper tiger.

“Don’t forget, I rebuilt NATO because when I became president, the first thing I noticed when I went there to the first meeting, was that most of the countries were not paying, or were paying far less than they were supposed to. There were only eight out of 28 countries that were paid in full.”

As images of dead bodies buried in mass graves were shown on the screen, Trump also bragged about what good friends he is with the Russian dictator:

“I knew Putin very well. Almost as well as I know you, Sean. I will tell you, we talked about it, we talked about it a lot, he did want Ukraine, but I said, ‘You’re not going into Ukraine.’ He would never, ever have gone into Ukraine.”

Based on what he said Wednesday and has said in the past, it’s painfully clear that if Trump runs in 2024 and wins, Putin will have a green light to invade any country he wants while the United States stands by and watches without responding.

Joe Biden Trump Supporters Vladimir Putin WTF?!

Trump Supporter Says She’d Rather Have Putin As POTUS Than Biden 

It’s basically a given that to be a supporter of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump, you have to be gullible and willing to believe whatever bullshit you hear on right-wing television and radio.

But can you imagine being so perpetually demented that you would rather have a mass murdering butcher like Vladimir Putin running the United States than President Joe Biden?

Yet that’s exactly what a MAGA moron had to say when she spoke with a reporter outside last Saturday’s Trump rally in Michigan, according to Crooks & Liars:

A Donald Trump supporter has attempted to explain why she would vote for Vladimir Putin over Joe Biden, and her response is… interesting?

In a newly-surfaced video, a woman wearing a bobbled Trump beanie was interviewed by Jason Selvig – one half of comedy duo The Good Liars.

After being asked exactly why a political figure recently accused of war crimes would get her vote over Biden, she replied: “I believe he’s been given a tough….”

Trailing off before completing her sentence, she then insisted Nazis actually left Germany after WWII and made their way to America following a pit-stop in Ukraine.

But that’s not all the simpleton had to say. She also believes that George Bush (who fought the Nazis in World War II as a decorated Navy pilot) was actually a Nazi himself!

“Since WWII, Russia’s been the bad guy, when in actuality the Nazis left Germany and they ended up going to Ukraine, coming in here.”

She then added: “George Bush was actually a Nazi.”

The group that shot the video and posted it online is indeed known as The Good Liars, but they aren’t lying when it comes to finding some of the dense dolts who associate themselves with Trump like pathetic, fascist groupies.

But perhaps most terrifying of all is that we still let these ditzes cast a ballot in every election. Is is any wonder that Trump and his ilk (Gaetz, Greene, Boebert, etc.) are able to get elected to positions of power?

Willful ignorance will be the death of the American republic.
