Marjorie Taylor Greene forces vote on measure censuring Rashida Tlaib:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KSQNsrze2I

Am wondering if this could be a first step to expel Rashida Tlaib from Congress?

What would the founding fathers do? Hang her or shoot her? Guess it would have depended on the supply of gun powder at the time

Yeah, because it is treason, that whole Gaza caucus squad... What's hard to take how did these anti-American, anti-Semitic whackos could be voted into congress...

Disliking Israel isn't a crime. Being Muslim isn't a crime. Opposing the GOP agenda isn't a crime.

Fraud *IS* a crime. "Oh, but he hasn't been convicted!" (And he identifies as a Republican, so it's okay. Sound familiar?)

Nice to see your colors haven't changed. A Squad backer? Did not see it running that deep.

well we let all the Somalis in as political refugees and they all settled together in Mn giving them a majority voting voice.Its up to Minnesotans to take back their State.Not unlike Italians settling in NY after Mussolini (except they were pretty Conservative and embraced and loved their new Country instead of trying to make it like their homeland)

Why aren’t you angry about the Talib insurrection against our government? I guess it’s a different ‘crime’ than what trump is accused of, huh? You know, since they only “assaulted” the Capitol police, rather than “murder” them. Selective outrage at its finest.

“Greene has described a rally on Oct. 18 at the Capitol calling for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war as an insurrection. During the event, hundreds of demonstrators entered the Cannon House office building, causing U.S. Capitol Police to temporarily close access to the building. Capitol Police estimated that they arrested 300 protesters, including three people who were charged with assault on a police officer.”

Greene is hardly an authority on 'insurrection.' Chaos, maybe.

Tlaib should be expelled for her support of terrorism and anti-American views. Based on her support of terrorism, it would be worthwhile to investigate how much contact she has had with terrorist groups that may turn up treasonous activities.

Sad what is going on with Palestine & Israel & it's been that way for years. Sadder is how these 4 on a regular basis criticize the country that has given them so much & fuel protesting in our land. Again, I say, they need to be GONE, period. Now, as for Trump, I say as an individual he can & is an ass. As a President, he did a great job. Not one of us can throw a stone if we lived in a glass house. Biden is a complete disaster as a President & in "my opinion" if you think different, you have a problem.

Neither is Pelosi, especially after having the National Guard stand down when Capital police requested them in advance of Jan 6th!

From: Groundhunter

Capitol Police were an still are poorly led. They should be warriors, not guardians. I retired 25 years ago. Large Dept. Our Command center, would not have tolerated it. We would have employed, rubber bullets, gas, etc. We would have kicked their asses, but I started in 1975, different world.

Interestingly enough neither Nancy Pelosi nor any other speaker has any command authority over the D.C. National Guard.

I don't know how anyone can defend and support Hamas and the Palestinians in Gaza. They are just like the Nazi's. That we have people in the US that would vote for an evil person like Tlaib scares me to death. Of course that demented old fool in the Whitehouse just gave them a $100 million. The Arab or muslim countries will not take in Palestinians refugees since they know they have been brainwashed from birth to hate the jews and any muslim that is not a fanatic like them. We have a ticking time bomb and Biden wants to arrest parents going to school board meetings. We are so screwed.

The wisest thing our founders ever did was separation of church and state just look how often it gets tested by zealots of all faiths.Secular Muslim countries largely are peaceful.Trump had some success mostly by showing them how prosperous they could be financially.

"The wisest thing our founders ever did was separation of church and state..."

Unfortunately, some big "religions" like progressivism, wokeism and man-made climate change alarmism are exempt from that separation.

Clergy would love to bottle that kind of faith.

"The 234-188 tally came after enough Democrats joined with Republicans to censure Tlaib, a punishment one step below expulsion from the House"

Irony is painful at this point... .

The anti semitic jewish space laser lady is trying to silence a muslim and her opinions on isreal.....

The above is a true statement... thus means she is not only racist/bigoted towards Jews but also muslims.

Huh,,, you're joking right, you can't be serious... The Rebels fired first from Fort Sumter... Don't want to start the Civil War over, but in today's world they would be considered TERRORISTS!!!

The Palestinians comments are more treasonous

How so ? And just for the record we are NOT at war.

"Because that’s what I think".....that's what I suspected.

"Who besides you have mentioned War?" Actually Zbone brought up the topic of war in his Abraham Lincoln quote.

From: Catscratch

Not on point for the question, but what an odd thing to say; I'd won if I had organized the insurrection. Jan 6th was an impromptu break-in to the White House by a group of fired up protestors, not an organized military type overthrow. Anyone with 2 brain cells touching knows the difference. Of course she could have organized a better attempt. For a politician to state or brag about something like that is odd.

Zbone brought up the civil war! Really good side step. So in your world what people think, triggers the response you mustered up?

From: fdp
10-Nov-23
"Zbone brought up the civil war! "...I as much said that..and I wasn't and am not sidestepping anything at all. "So in your world what people think, triggers the response you mustered up?"....well no more or less so than it does in yours....does it?

I mean the OP brought up the subject of treason based on a difference of opinion and the voicing of opinions that are in opposition to the opinions of some others (not opinions that I agree with) and another politician voices an opinion about the impeding of a political process that is not viewed as being as treasonous.

The bottom line is that any headline that can be dug up that shows a "leftist", to use the popular Bowsite term, doing something stupid, you can dig up a similar one showing a "rightist" doing something equally as stupid.

It's just all about personal perception.

From: Glunt@work
10-Nov-23
No, people really do and say stupid things on both sides. It's not all just perception.

From: fdp

Glunt the personal perception co.e in to play when folks try to make a case for one side or the other being more inclined to do those things.

I sometimes agree with you, but that was dumb. Go tell the families of 58,220 casualties of Vietnam that there was no war. Just because war has not been formally declared doesn't mean we aren't in one.
