Marjorie Taylor Greene lays out demands for GOP House speaker vote if Republicans retake majority in
Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, one of Donald Trump's staunchest allies in Congress, on Thursday laid out demands for a GOP leader to earn her vote for House Speaker if Republicans are able to retake the majority after the 2022 elections and cast doubt on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy being elected to the position.
"We know that Kevin McCarthy has a problem in our conference. He doesn't have the full support to be speaker," Greene said on an episode of Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz's podcast that aired Thursday morning. "He doesn't have the votes that are there, because there's many of us that are very unhappy about the failure to hold Republicans accountable, while conservatives like me, Paul Gosar, and many others just constantly take the abuse by the Democrats."
Greene, who previously told reporters she would be laying out a list of demands to earn her speaker vote, mentioned some of the challenges that lay ahead in McCarthy's quest for the speaker's gavel. Among her demands, the Republican told Gaetz she wants fellow GOP Reps. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Liz Cheney of Wyoming kicked out of the House Republican Conference for serving on the January 6 committee, something McCarthy has so far resisted. She also said she has no respect for current GOP leadership.
Greene also wants to see moderate Rep. John Katko, a New York Republican and McCarthy ally, lose his top spot on the House Homeland Security Committee. Katko, who represents a key swing district, supported the bipartisan infrastructure law, voted to impeach Trump and supported the Democratic-led effort to remove Greene from her committees.
"Katko's not a Republican. He's a Democrat," Greene said. "Our conference and the NRCC needs to stop playing this majority-maker game."

This is a make or break situation. If these fascists gain control of the House and the Senate, dont be surprised if they start arresting their opponents and shutting down opposition media.
Can someone PLEASE explain to me what is taking so long for the Justice Department to charge Steve the Scruff Bannon? He is openly in contempt of Congress and has been referred for criminal charges. What is taking so damn long?

Donald Trump told journalists that he believed he could beat George Washington and Abraham Lincoln in an election.
"I think it would be hard if George Washington came back from the dead and he chose Abraham Lincoln as his vice-president, I think it would have been very hard for them to beat me," Trump told Washington Post journalists Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig.
Rucker and Leonnig recounted the comment in their new book about Trump, "I Alone Can Fix It," according to a review by The Guardian.
Lincoln and Washington are often ranked by historians as the two greatest presidents in US history.

OMG is there no end to his ego!!!
This document details the horrific campaign conducted by FOX news and others to paint Smartmatic as a corrupt corporation changing votes for Donald Trump to Joe Biden.. This campaign was extensive and done knowing the charges were false..It's well worth the read
Today is the first time in a long time I felt pride and hope for America...
On the website that was the epicenter of plans for the violent insurrection at the US Capitol Wednesday, some of President Donald Trumps most loyal followers, who had for months shamed, silenced, and banned anyone who criticized the president, grappled with a new feeling after the riot ended: betrayal.
For months, the forum TheDonald has been a gathering place for people planning to try to overturn Trumps election defeat. But when its users actually broke into the Capitol, as they had promised to do for months, the site tried to rapidly change course, saying it would follow President Trumps lead and would not allow organizing, or calling directly for, violence of any kind.
The reversal, which moderators hinted was made under pressure from the sites hosts, left some Trump loyalists in disbelief that they had done anything wrong: They were, they said, only following the presidents orders.
I dont understand the thinking, said one popular post on the forum. Trump told us to march down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol. We listened to the president. They should be thanking us.
"For weeks people were saying how ready they were to fight. The moment it happens everyone starts pearl clutching," read another popular post.
For some, Trumps video Thursday night, where he acknowledged for the first time that he had lost the election, only intensified the feelings.
Wow, what an absolute punch in the gut, one post with more than 100 upvotes said. He says its going to be wild, and when it gets wild, he calls it a heinous attack and middle fingers his supporters that he told to be there. Unbelievable.
HEY IDIOTS..DO YOU REALLY THINK RATTLESNAKES SHOW LOYALTY?
After years of fidelity, Donald Trump's most ardent online fans have finally turned on him.
All it took was for the president to acknowledge the reality of his loss a little over a day after they, the MAGA faithful, stormed the Capitol in a violent attempt to stop the certification of President-elect Joe Bidens win.
People were willing to die for this man and he just threw them all under the bus. Thats the only thing thats shameful about the events of the past 36 hours, Nick Fuentes, the host of the America First podcast and the unofficial leader of the white nationalist Groyper Army, angrily tweeted, shortly after Trump released a video Thursday night in which he conceded that Biden would be the next president and called for political reconciliation.
Cassandra Fairbanks, a prominent MAGA activist, tweeted: [He] tells angry people to march to the capitol [and then] proceeds to throw his supporters under the bus.
And there was anger. It was directed at Trump for letting things get this far. Over on Parler, the social media platform beloved by the MAGA community for its lax moderation policies, users erupted in a fury, calling him a number of expletives, a dildo, and 100% THE SWAMP.
