Rep. Marjorie Greene officially files articles of impeachment against President Biden

Freshman GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia officially filed articles of impeachment Thursday against President Joe Biden on his first full day in office, following through on a promise she made Jan. 13 when the House voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump a second time.

What are the details?

Greene confirmed the filing on Twitter, telling her followers, “We’ll see how it goes,” before releasing a written statement on her action.

In a press release, Greene’s office stated that the Georgia Republican introduced articles of impeachment against Biden “for his corrupt actions involving his quid pro quo in Ukraine and his abuse of power by allowing his son, Hunter Biden, to siphon off cash from America’s greatest enemies Russian and China.”

“President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the Presidency,” the congresswoman wrote, arguing:

“His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama’s Vice President is lengthy and disturbing. President Biden has demonstrated that he will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his family’s pockets with case from corrupt foreign energy companies.

President Biden is even on tape admitting to a quid pro quo with the Ukrainian government threatening to withhold $1,000,000,000 in foreign aid if they did not do his bidding. President Biden residing in the White House is a threat to national security and he must be immediately impeached.”

Greene went on to list allegations in what she referred to as the “vast and detailed” case against Biden.

Greene was asked by Newsmax prior the filing if her impeachment efforts against Biden were merely symbolic, given that Democrats control the House of Representatives. Her office later told TheBlaze that “Rep. Greene simply wants to be a voice for the voiceless,” saying the congresswoman “wants to defend [American conservatives] and represent the Silent Majority.”

Anything else?

Greene, a strong supporter of President Donald Trump, won election on Nov. 3 in Georgia’s 14th District and has already made a string of headlines since taking office.

The congresswoman was temporarily suspended from Twitter last week after the social media platform accused her of “multiple violations of our civic integrity police.” But Greene argued in response that she was given no explanation for the suspension, and issued a statement saying that “big tech is silencing Americans” and that “censorship has got to stop.”

Greene is also facing criticism after an unearthed social media post from 2018 showed that she referred to the Parkland, Florida, school massacre that killed at least 17 people as a “false flag.”

As TheBlaze previously reported:

Critics of Greene, including other Republicans, have accused her of employing inflammatory rhetoric in order to raise campaign funds and to gain political prominence. Greene has also been criticized for previously supporting the QAnon conspiracy theory.

false flag Intelwars Marjorie taylor greene Parkland massacre Parkland students Was parkland a real shooting

Parkland massacre students demand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s resignation after she branded mass killing a ‘false flag’

Student survivors of the Parkland, Florida, mass killing are calling on Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) to resign from Congress after she said that the massacre was a “false flag” to push for gun control.

Greene took to her Twitter account and cleared up her position on gun control and especially its role in schools.

What did she say?

According to a Wednesday report from
BuzzFeed News, Greene in a 2018 Facebook post questioned the Parkland shooting.

In the
post, she shared a news article about the pension of a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School resource officer. The officer in question did not intervene in the mass killing, which took the lives of at least 17 people and injured many more.

Responding to Greene’s post, a commenter called Stacy wrote, “It’s called a payoff to keep his mouth shut since it was a false flag planned shooting.”

Greene responded, “Exactly Stacy!!”

Another commenter added, “Sounds like a pay off, doesn’t it.”

Greene responded, “Yes it does!”

What has been the response?

David Hogg, former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and March for Our Lives co-founder,
tweeted, “Marjorie Greene should resign. If you spread conspiracies about mass shootings there should be no place for you in congress [sic].”

He later tweeted directly at Greene — who has not responded to his remarks at the time of this reporting —
writing, “Why did you call the shooting at my high school a false flag? 17 classmates and staff died — spreading conspiracies about this tragedy is disgusting.”

Cameron Kasky, former student and March for Our Lives co-founder, told the outlet, “She should be removed. She should be punished. … [But] it’s probably not going to happen.”

He added, “There’s somebody literally making laws that denies the Parkland shooting. I mean, what the hell is next? It’s inhuman what these elected officials are doing.”

“Elected officials pushing Parkland conspiracies — this is not some symptom of the Trump era; this is just the Republican Party fundamentally. She’ll get away with it. Of course she will. She’s a Republican.”

Fred Guttenberg, father of a teenage Parkland victim,
wrote, “I know you have met Parkland parents. This is my daughter Jaime, she was killed that day. Do you still believe this? Why would you say this?”

Anything else?

Greene did not directly respond to the 2018 controversy, but instead shared a lengthy message about gun-free school zones and the absurdity of the student resource officer’s stately pension.

“‘Gun-free’ school zones are a FAILURE. Laws that prevent legal ownership of firearms turn schools into targets,” she wrote. “As someone who was personally locked in a classroom in 11th grade due to a fellow student who brought guns to our ‘gun-free’ school intent to [sic] kill others, I’m proud to say I’ll cosponsor the Safe Students Act to repeal ‘gun-free’ school zone laws and allow Americans to protect our children.”

She added, “I personally understand the fear as a student when there is no good guy with a gun to protect us from the bad guy with guns.”

Greene later took aim at the school resource officer in question who did not intervene in the Parkland shooting.

“Scott Peterson allowed children to be left defenseless against an active shooter,” she wrote. “When he was supposed to protect them, he was a coward and refused to go in. He allowed 17 people to die.”

“Why in the world would he received such a lucrative pension after the tragic school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School?” she demanded. “It’s sickening. The shooter should have never been allowed to set foot on campus and he should have been expelled long before he murdered people.”

She concluded, “Our children are the most important people in our country and they should be protected by good guys with guns.”

Twitter suspends Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s account

Twitter suspended the account of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.). The social media company temporarily banned the Republican congresswoman for allegedly spreading misinformation. Greene was temporarily suspended for 12 hours on Sunday.

“The account referenced has been temporarily locked out for multiple violations of our civic integrity policy,” a Twitter spokesperson told The Hill.

In September, Twitter’s civic integrity policy stated the social media network “will label or remove false or misleading information intended to undermine public confidence in an election or other civic process.”

Greene’s office issued a statement regarding her suspension.

“Just days after the Silicon Valley Cartel launched a multi-front attack to chill free speech in America by deplatforming President Donald Trump and purging an unknown number of conservatives, Twitter has decided to suspend my personal account without explanation,” the statement read. “The borderline monopolistic stranglehold a few Big Tech companies have on the American political discourse is out of control.”

“If a conservative dares to utter a political opinion that is deemed unapproved by the internet police they are now subject to false accusations of ‘inciting violence’ simply for having a conservative view,” the press release said.

“Congress must act, and act swiftly, to protect free speech in America,” Greene’s office stated. “Conservative Americans shouldn’t be afraid to speak their mind. They shouldn’t have to fear being cancelled by American corporations where they work, do business, and use services. They shouldn’t be scared into submission by Socialists who want to end their way of life.”

Greene’s office claimed that “big tech is silencing Americans,” adding that “censorship has got to stop.”

On Sunday morning, Greene gave an interview where she was critical of Gabriel Sterling, Georgia’s voter system implementation manager. The freshman representative posted the video on her Twitter, which was flagged and disabled by Twitter.

“This claim of election fraud is disputed, and this Tweet can’t be replied to, Retweeted, or liked due to a risk of violence,” the Twitter warning stated.

Greene had two other tweets posted on Sunday that were flagged for spreading misinformation about elections.

Greene has been criticized for supporting the QAnon conspiracy theory, even by members of her own party.

Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska wrote a scathing op-ed in The Atlantic rebuking GOP members who embrace conspiracy theories, specifically naming Greene.

“Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs,” Sasse wrote on Saturday. “She once ranted that ‘there’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do it.'”

Sasse said that conspiracy theories planted the seeds that led to the riots at the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6.

On Tuesday, Twitter announced that it had suspended “more than 70,000 accounts” since the storming of the Capitol.

“We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm,” Twitter said in a blog post. “Given the violent events in Washington, DC, and increased risk of harm, we began permanently suspending thousands of accounts that were primarily dedicated to sharing QAnon content on Friday afternoon.”

Twitter permanently banned President Donald Trump from the social media platform following the Capitol riots, citing “risk of further incitement of violence.

Ben Sasse savages GOP for embracing conspiracy theories, targets new GOP rep: ‘Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs’

Republican Sen. Ben Sasse blasted his own political party in an essay over the weekend, condemning the embrace of conspiracy theories by some in the GOP, which Sasse claimed planted the seeds that resulted in the deadly riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

What did Sasse say?

The Nebraska Republican did not mince words, writing in The Atlantic that the Republican Party must reclaim its identity after President Donald Trump’s departure from the White House — or risk falling into political obscurity.

“The violence that Americans witnessed—and that might recur in the coming days—is not a protest gone awry or the work of ‘a few bad apples.’ It is the blossoming of a rotten seed that took root in the Republican Party some time ago and has been nourished by treachery, poor political judgment, and cowardice,” Sasse wrote.

He continued, “When Trump leaves office, my party faces a choice: We can dedicate ourselves to defending the Constitution and perpetuating our best American institutions and traditions, or we can be a party of conspiracy theories, cable-news fantasies, and the ruin that comes with them. We can be the party of Eisenhower, or the party of the conspiracist Alex Jones.”

Criticizing GOP leaders for trying to “preach the Constitution while winking at QAnon,” Sasse wrote that the “GOP must reject conspiracy theories or be consumed by them,” before criticizing newly elected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) in particular.

Sasse wrote:

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. She once ranted that “there’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do it.” During her campaign, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had a choice: disavow her campaign and potentially lose a Republican seat, or welcome her into his caucus and try to keep a lid on her ludicrous ideas. McCarthy failed the leadership test and sat on the sidelines. Now in Congress, Greene isn’t going to just back McCarthy as leader and stay quiet. She’s already announced plans to try to impeach Joe Biden on his first full day as president. She’ll keep making fools out of herself, her constituents, and the Republican Party.

What is the path forward?

According to Sasse, there are three reasons why those who identify with Republican politics are “falling prey to the siren song of conspiracism.”

  • “America’s junk-food media diet,” in which Sasse blamed mainstream media and right-leaning media for creating echo-chambers
  • “America’s institutional collapse,” which Sasse said created a vacuum, which Big Tech has filled
  • “America’s loss of meaning,” which Sasse said, “For generations, most Americans understood themselves as children of a loving God, and all had a role to play in loving their neighbors. But today, many Americans have no role in any common story.”

If the Republican Party wants to have a place in national politics moving forward, Sasse said it must do two things.

“First, Republicans must repudiate the nonsense that has set our party on fire,” Sasse explained. “Second, the party has to rebuild itself. It must offer a genuine answer to the frustrations of the past decade.”

“Whatever the Republican Party does, it faces an ugly fight,” Sasse predicted. “The fracture that so many politicians on the right have been trying desperately to avoid may soon happen.”

Impeachment articles against biden Intelwars Joe Biden impeachment Joe biden violence Marjorie greene impeach biden Marjorie taylor greene

Rep. Marjorie Greene says she will file for impeachment against Joe Biden on the first day of his presidency in order to avoid violence

Newly elected Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) announced on Wednesday that she would be filing articles of impeachment against President-elect Joe Biden on the first full day of his presidency.

Greene made the announcement during an interview on NewsmaxTV.

“I would like to announce on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure that our leaders are held accountable. We cannot have a president of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, foreign Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies,” said Greene.

“So on January 21st, I will be filing articles of impeachment on Joe Biden,” she added.

NewsmaxTV host Greg Kelly noted that the effort would have a slim chance of success in the Democratically controlled House of Representatives and asked her if if would be merely symbolic.

“Well, like I said, I’m a big believer of having people in office that are actually willing to do the job. And I can’t imagine people in this country being so fearful of a future of a Biden presidency that they may be willing to commit violence like they did in the Capitol here in Washington, D.C.,” said Greene.

“We cannot have that, I do not condone that violence. The American people need hope,” she added. “They need to know that there are Republicans in Congress that are willing to stand up and fight for them, regardless of being in a minority, regardless of having all odds against us, against me, or against anyone in Congress. We have to hold people accountable.”

She followed up with a short statement on Twitter about her plan.

“On January 21, 2021, I’ll be filing Articles of Impeachment against Joe Biden for abuse of power,” she tweeted.

When TheBlaze reached out to Greene’s office to clarify her motivation for filing impeachment articles, her spokesperson offered the following response:

Rep. Greene simply wants to be a voice for the voiceless. American conservatives have been banned, censored, deplatformed and physically attacked. Unfortunately that removes hope from the people. Congresswoman Greene wants to defend these Americans and represent the Silent Majority.

Greene made the announcement on the same day as a vote in the House to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time.

Critics of Greene, including other Republicans, have accused her of employing inflammatory rhetoric in order to raise campaign funds and to gain political prominence. Greene has also been criticized for previously supporting the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Adam kinzinger Donald Trump election fraud Intelwars Marjorie taylor greene voter fraud

Republican congressman lashes out at Trump, GOP colleagues for challenging Joe Biden’s win: ‘An utter scam’

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) blasted President Donald Trump on Saturday for continuing to challenge the legitimacy of President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory last month.

Kinzinger was specifically responding to remarks that Trump made Saturday morning in which he called out the Justice Department and FBI for having “done nothing about the 2020 Presidential Election Voter Fraud, the biggest SCAM in our nation’s history.”

What did Kinzinger say?

Kinzinger accused Trump of attempting to dismantle critical American institutions for being unable to “handle losing.”

“My God. Trying to burn the place down on the way out because you can’t handle losing. No evidence, nothing but your temper tantrum and crazy conspiracies. Embarrassing,” Kinzinger said, adding the hashtag “#RestoreOurGOP.”

Kinzinger, who has served in Congress for 10 years, also targeted his Republican colleagues who continue to support Trump’s election challenge.

“All this talk about Jan 6th from @realDonaldTrump and other congressional grifters is simply explained: they will raise money and gain followers by blaming everyone else knowing full well they can’t do anything. It’s sad, and an utter scam,” Kinzinger said.

What’s important about Jan. 6?

Some of Trump’s Republican allies in Congress, like Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), have pledged to force debate about alleged election fraud on Jan 6., the day Congress meets to certify Biden’s win following the Electoral College vote earlier this month.

According to Fox News, “The long-shot effort is designed to force a prolonged debate on election fraud and respond to concerns from the base who believe, without evidence, that the election was stolen.”

More from Fox News:

Congressional rules require a House member and senator to simultaneously challenge a state’s electoral slate when they jointly convene on Jan. 6. Greene said some senators are on board, though she declined to name them publicly.

The group intends to object to electors of at least six states — Michigan, Georiga, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Nevada — all states that Biden carried. That could force a two-hour debate on the election results in each of those states and then a vote on accepting that state’s slate of electoral votes. Republicans not backing the effort will face consequences at the ballot box, Greene said.

However, contrary to claims from Trump and his supporters, there has been no evidence of widespread voter fraud, despite dozens of legal challenges in state and federal courts.

The Justice Department came to the same conclusion after investigating claims of election fraud.

“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” now-former Attorney General William Barr said on Dec. 1.
