Greene Makes Another Attention-Grabbing Move After Failing to Oust Speaker Johnson

by Brennan Bobbie

US Capitol Wahington D.C.Fresh from a failed attempt to unseat House Speaker Johnson, Georgia Republican Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene once again drew attention to her racism. This time, targeting Democratic Texas Representative Jasmine Crockett whom she derided for wearing false eyelashes.

The presiding House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer chose to ignore Greene’s foul remarks. Yet Rep. Crockett pushed for a clarification whether Comer will still consider it okay if she said that a person has “bleach blonde bad built butch body,” which clearly referred to Greene’s physical attributes.

What was the House Oversight Committee Session About

The Oversight Committee was actually holding a session to decide whether Atty. General (AG) Merrick Garland should be held in contempt of court for refusing to hand over an audio recording of an interview involving Pres. Joe Biden. However, the chaos started after Greene insulted Crockett over her false eyelashes. It also led to a heated exchange of words between the attention-seeking Georgia Rep. and Democratic NY Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who pointed out that Greene’s behavior was unacceptable.

General continued to deny the House Committee’s request to obtain audio files containing an interview with Pres. Joe Biden regarding the classified documents case raised against the US President.

Representative Jasmine Crockett later said in an interview with CNN that she does not anticipate repercussions from Green. Still, the Texas Representative wants House Speaker Johnson to reign in Greene for her unprofessional behavior, which included her failed attempt to oust Johnson as speaker of the Lower House.

Would Americans, Republicans in Particular Vote a Convict as President?

by Brennan Bobbie

Republican voters are still asking if the majority of American supporters of Trump would vote for the former president, even if he has been convicted for several crimes? At present, Trump has been indicted for four criminal charges in different federal courts in different states. He is facing two trials, one in New York and another in Florida, while two others were filed in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Many do not believe that pro-Trump Americans can muster the number that will put Trump back in office at the White House. Senator Bill Cassidy (R-Louisiana) who voted in favor of Trump’s removal from office for instigating the January 6, 2021 insurrection, believes it’s time for Trump to end his bid to run  as GOP presidential candidate in 2024.

Cassidy is not the only Republican who does not welcome the former president’s bid for candidacy as the Republican to run in the 2024 US presidential election.

Scott Jennings, a Republican campaign adviser pointed to the results of a poll recently conducted by Quinnipiac University. The poll showed that 59% of Republicans and 68% of all American voters believe that a person convicted of a crime should not be eligible to run for office as president.

Besides, it’s a possibility that will not materialize. Even if the majority of voters think Joe Biden has to be replaced, a conviction could turn the tide against Trump, because Americans will not vote for a convict as President of the US.

Democrats Pass Resolution to Censure Republican Rep Gosar for Promoting Acts of Violence on AOC

by Brennan Bobbie

The House Democrats initiated a resolution to censure Rep. Paul Gosar after posting an edited anime clip that shows violence against Ocasio-Cortez and Biden. Arizona Republican Rep. Paul Gosar posted the video on his Instagram and Twitter and has received backlash and people have been asking him to be expelled.

House Democrats have mentioned last Wednesday that such messaging can actually instigate violence, referencing the January 6 Capitol incident. They added how it is a global phenomenon that women in politics experience violence which disheartens them to participate in public life and seek jobs of authority. Moreover, those who are strongly affected by this phenomenon are mostly women of color.

According to California Democratic Representative Jackie Speier, what he did crossed the line which is why the resolution was introduced. House Speaker Nancy Pelocy also asked for the House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy to condemn them, and law enforcement and House Ethics Committee to look into Gosar’s actions.

Gosar Defends Anime Video as Symbolic of Fight Against America’s Immigration Policy

Gosar has already removed the video from his Twitter which is an edited clip from the anime “Attack on Titan” wherein the titans were killed by the protagonist. The titans were edited with Biden and Ocasio-Cortez’s face and with Gosar’s face on the protagonist.

In a statement, Gosar mentioned that his intention was not to support any harm or violence to any member of the Congress or to the president. He added that the video is supposed to symbolize their battle against the President’s economic package that includes immigration provisions which they are opposed to.

On the other hand, Gosar’s siblings doesn’t have the most positive judgements of their brother as six of them have advocated his Democratic opponent in a 2018 TV advertisement.
