Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Exposes Potentially Classified Information: ‘People Deserve to Know’

432: Saint Patrick, aged about 16, is captured by Irish pirates from his home in Great Britain and taken as a slave to Ireland (traditional date).

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) verbally disclosed classified information during a congressional hearing, saying that “people deserve to know.”

During a U.S. House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee hearing earlier this week, Greene addressed a question to U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz.

“Chief Ortiz, are you aware that there was an explosive device found by Border Patrol agents on January 17th in an area called No Man’s Land, and there’s surveillance of who put it there?” Greene asked. “And guess what? It wasn’t Americans; it was cartels. Are you aware of that?”

Ortiz refused to elaborate on his knowledge of the alleged incident, indicating that any such information would be considered confidential.

“I will tell you that some of this information that I receive, I receive in a confidential [sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF)], so I’m going to be a little hesitant of briefing what I know and what I don’t know with respect to some of those, an event like that,” he told Greene.

Despite Ortiz’s hesitancy, the congresswoman pressed on.

“I understand, Chief Ortiz, but I’m not going to be confidential because I think people deserve to know,” Greene said. “Our Border Patrol agents should not be in those type of conditions where they are at risk of being blown to pieces by the cartels, who, by the way, are criminals, and they should be treated as such.”

“As a matter of fact, I’ve co-sponsored legislation to declare war on the cartels because they are definitely declaring war on us, the American people, and our Border Patrol agents, and I’ve had enough of it, and I know Americans have had enough of it,” she added.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Says She Was ‘Attacked’ By ‘Insane Woman’

1847: Michigan becomes the 1st English-speaking jurisdiction to abolish the death penalty (except for treason against the state).

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said she she was “attacked” by an “insane woman” while dining at a restaurant on Monday night.

“I was attacked in a restaurant tonight by an insane women and screamed at by her adult son,” Greene tweeted. “They had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views.”

“They are self righteous, insane, and completely out of control,” she added.

Greene said she was sitting at a table and working with her staff, and didn’t notice “these people until they turned into demons.”

A spokesperson for Greene provided a statement to various media outlets, saying that the staff had been working on preparation for upcoming committee hearings when the incident occurred.

At first, the woman “introduced herself politely” but then she “started berating” Greene as her son “started screaming expletives at the top of his lungs and came closer.”

“I had to get in between him and the table because I had no clue what he’d do,” the spokesperson said, adding that the woman’s adult son carried on screaming while his mother “continued to berate” Greene.

Restaurant staff ultimately made the woman and her son leave, the spokesperson said. The staff “apologized” and moved Greene’s group to a more private table. The police were not called.

Neither Greene nor her spokesperson specified the restaurant where the incident took place.

“The congresswoman deserves to be able to eat at a restaurant in peace. And giving the location would only make the restaurant a target and encourage people to look for her there,” the spokesperson said.

In her tweet, Greene noted, “People used to respect others even if they had different views. But not anymore. Our country is gone.”

Greene recently kicked up a controversy by calling for a “national divorce” between red and blue states.

“We need a national divorce. We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government,” Greene tweeted last week. “From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”

This isn’t the first time Greene has dealt with ire from the public as a member of Congress.

Earlier this month, a man in New York pleaded guilty to leaving Greene several threatening voicemails last year. In the messages, he threatened to cause her “physical harm” and “pay someone 500 bucks to take a baseball bat and crack your skull.”

‘Satanic’ Grammys Performance Sparks Outrage

1974: Mel Brooks’ western spoof film Blazing Saddles, starring Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder, premieres at the Pickwick Drive-In in Burbank, California; patrons watched from horseback rather than cars.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted the Grammy’s as “evil” following a controversial performance by Sam Smith.

Smith and collaborator Kim Petras, who also won the Grammy for best pop duo/group performance, performed the song “Unholy” during the televised event. The performance was quickly met with backlash from conservatives for “promoting Satan.”

“This…is…evil,” Cruz wrote on Twitter.

Cruz was responding to a clip of the performance posted by conservative pundit Liz Wheeler, who wrote: “Don’t fight the culture wars, they say. Meanwhile demons are teaching your kids to worship Satan. I could throw up.”

According to Variety, Smith “donned a satanic top hat, as huge flames heated up the stage,” and Petras was “flanked by some dominatrices wearing satanic headgear.”

“The Grammy’s featured Sam Smith’s demonic performance and was sponsored by Pfizer,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) wrote. “And the Satanic Church now has an abortion clinic in NM that requires its patients to perform a satanic ritual before services. American Christians need to get to work.”

The performance drew backlash from other notable conservatives, including Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk and political commentator Matt Walsh.

Kirk tweeted: “The Devil. Brought to you by Pfizer…”

Walsh wrote: “It’s not surprising to see a satanic ritual at the Grammy’s. Satanism is the worship of the self. Much of modern pop music is satanic in this sense. Leftism is satanism. The only change is that now they’re being more explicit about it.”

After the performance, Petras, who is a transgender woman, told reporters that the performance was “a take on not being able to choose religion.”

“I think a lot of people, honestly, have kind of labeled what I stand for and what Sam stands for as religiously not cool, and I personally grew up wondering about religion and wanting to be a part of it but slowly realizing it didn’t want me to be a part of it,” Petras said.

“So it’s a take on not being able to choose religion. And not being able to live the way that people might want you to live, because as a trans person I’m already not kind of wanted in religion. So we were doing a take on that and I was kind of hellkeeper Kim.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene Aims to Be Trump’s 2024 VP: Report

1926: John Logie Baird gives the first public demonstration of television in his laboratory in London.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is vying for a spot in Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign as his running mate, according to a new report.

NBC reported on Wednesday that multiple people have spoken to the Georgia Republican about her ambitions.

Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon told NBC that Greene “is no shrinking violet.”

“She’s ambitious — she’s not shy about that, nor should she be,” Bannon said.

“She sees herself on the short list for Trump’s VP. Paraphrasing Cokie Roberts, when MTG looks in the mirror she sees a potential president smiling back,” Bannon said.

Her ardent support of Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s speakership bid was a strategic “power move,” Bannon said. Although aligning with McCarthy alienated Greene from some of her allies in the Freedom Caucus, it made her a real “player” in the GOP.

“She was prepared to take the intense heat/hatred short-term for the long-term goal of being a player,” the conservative strategist said.

An unnamed ally of Greene’s, who was only willing to speak on-the-record anonymously, told the outlet the congresswoman has been clear that her “ultimate goal” is to become vice president.

Trump has yet to weigh-in on any serious candidates for his VP pick. It likely won’t be former Vice President Mike Pence, after the two had a public falling out in the aftermath of the 2020 election.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Details Investigation into Joe Biden

2007: The 110th United States Congress convenes and elects Nancy Pelosi as the 1st female Speaker of the House.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) provided some details about what to expect now that the GOP has taken over the U.S. House of Representatives — including an investigation into President Joe Biden.

The new Republican-led House rules include the creation of a subcommittee to investigate “the Weaponization of the Federal Government” under the Biden administration.

“We are so serious, it’s not just a goal, it’s a rule,” Greene tweeted, adding what appeared to be a quote from the proposed rules package: “Establish the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government to investigate the full extent of the Biden Administration’s assault on the constitutional rights of American citizens.”

The 55-page document with the rules for the 118th Congress outlines a resolution “establishing a Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government as a select investigative subcommittee of the Committee on the Judiciary.”

Greene also suggested that the GOP-led House could bring articles of impeachment against Biden.

“2023 will be a great year to impeach Joe Biden!” Greene wrote on Twitter.

Musk Causes Commotion with Controversial Tweet About Fauci

1774: First incident of American Revolution – 400 New Hampshire militiamen successfully attack Fort William and Mary.

Elon Musk caused a commotion after calling for Anthony Fauci to be prosecuted in a tweet, writing: “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci.”

Musk’s concise tweet garnered more than a million likes on the platform.

“I affirm your pronouns Elon,” tweeted Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) in response.

But not everyone appreciated the sentiment, including some of those within the medical community.

“This is antithetical to what we stand for, insulting science, infectious disease, and people with trans/nonbinary identities who suffer from enough stigma,” tweeted Emory University’s Division of Infectious Diseases, urging other ID programs to leave Twitter if Musk doesn’t delete the post.

Kent State Epidemiology Professor Tara Smith tweeted: “Hey @TwitterSafety what happens when the owner of the platform is tweeting to get a scientist harassed or killed?”

Former NASA astronaut Scott Kelly responded to Musk, asking him to not “mock and promote hate toward already marginalized and at-risk-of-violence members” of the LGBTQ+ community.”

Musk responded, writing: I strongly disagree. Forcing your pronouns upon others when they didn’t ask, and implicitly ostracizing those who don’t, is neither good nor kind to anyone.”

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre addressed Musk’s tweets during a press briefing on Monday, condemning the posts as “incredibly dangerous.”

Musk’s “personal attacks … are disgusting and they are divorced from reality, and we will continue to call that out and be very clear about that,” Jean-Pierre said.

“We are fortunate that he has devoted his career and his life and his exceptional talent to America’s public health,” she added.

Musk’s tweet came the morning after Stanford’s Dr. Jay Bhattacharya visited the Twitter headquarters. One of the installments of the “Twitter Files” revealed that Bhattacharya was previously placed on a “Trends Blacklist,” limiting the reach of his posts, after he warned that COVID-19 lockdowns would be harmful to children.

WATCH: Marjorie Taylor Greene Ruffles Feathers with Comments About Jan. 6

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said the Jan. 6 Capitol riot would have been successful if she’d planned it, ruffling the feathers of those within the Biden administration.

Greene apparently addressed claims that she was somehow involved in planning the Capitol riot.

“Then Jan. 6 happened. And next thing you know, I organized the whole thing, along with Steve Bannon here. And I will tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won. Not to mention, it would’ve been armed,” Greene told the audience at the New York Young Republican Club Gala on Saturday.

“See that’s the whole joke, isn’t it. They say that whole thing was planned and I’m like, are you kidding me? A bunch of conservatives, second amendment supporters, went in the Capitol without guns, and they think that we organized that?” Greene added.

The White House lashed out at Greene over the remarks, condemning her rhetoric as violent.

“It goes against our fundamental values as a country for a Member of Congress to wish that the carnage of January 6th had been even worse, and to boast that she would have succeeded in an armed insurrection against the United States government,” White House spokesperson Andrew Bates said in a statement.

“This violent rhetoric is a slap in the face to the Capitol Police, the DC Metropolitan Police, the National Guard, and the families who lost loved ones as a result of the attack on the Capitol,” Bates added.

Greene hit back at the Biden administration, saying the “White House needs to learn how sarcasm works.”

“My comments were making fun of Joe Biden and the Democrats, who have continuously made me a political target since January 6,” she said.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Files Articles of Impeachment Against Joe Biden

1862: U.S. President Abraham Lincoln issues the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, threatening to free all enslaved people in the rebel southern states if those states fail to re-join the Union by January 1, 1863.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) introduced articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden for “draining our reserves and selling our oil” to foreign countries.

Greene shared the news in a short video posted online Monday evening.

“I just introduced articles of impeachment on President Joe Biden. Joe Biden is selling our strategic petroleum reserves. This should never happen. He is draining our reserves and selling our oil, Americans’ oil, to foreign countries,” Greene says in the video.

“And China is the top buyer. China is our enemy. They are not our friend. They’re buying Americans’ oil. The Strategic Petroleum Reserve is our emergency supply for if something goes wrong in this country,” Greene continues.

“It’s now down to 434 million barrels of oil. That is nearly half of what it was when President Trump left office,” she says.

“This is an outrage. This is completely wrong. And no president of the United States should be doing this to the American people. It’s going to create a national emergency crisis. And that’s exactly what President Joe Biden is doing. This is the number, H.R. 1362, to impeach Joe Biden.”

H.R. 1362 can be read in its entirety on Congress.gov.

“Impeaching Joseph R. Biden, President of the United States, for endangering, compromising, and undermining the energy security of the United States by selling oil from the United States’ Strategic Petroleum Reserve to foreign nations,” the resolution reads.

Biden began releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve last November to combat rising energy prices.

WATCH: Marjorie Taylor Greene Gets into Physical Altercation with Activist

1947: The Central Intelligence Agency officially comes into existence after being established by President Truman in July.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) had an altercation with a protestor that turned physical when the congresswoman appeared to kick the activist during a tense exchange about national gun violence.

Greene was leaving a news conference on Thursday afternoon when she was approached by gun control activists from the Gen Z group Voters of Tomorrow, including 18-year-old deputy communications director Marianna Pecora.

The congresswoman posted a video of the confrontation, where the two briefly discuss gun legislation before Pecora starts to walk in front of Greene. The lawmaker appears irritated and can be seen tripping over Pecora’s heel, saying, “excuse me.”

The clip shows Greene saying “excuse me” once again and appears to kick Pecora’s leg. The activist then says, “Oh my God.”

A man identified by The Guardian as Nick Dyer, Greene’s communications director, says: “You’re blocking a member of Congress. You can’t block members of Congress.”

“These foolish cowards want the government to take away guns & the rights of parents to defend their children in schools,” Greene wrote on Twitter. “You have to be an idiot to think gun control will create a utopian society where criminals disarm themselves and obey the law. ‘Gun-free’ zones kill people.”

Pecora responded to the congresswoman on Twitter: “Did she literally just tweet out the video of her kicking me?”

Dyer, Greene’s spokesperson, denied the allegation. “There’s literally nothing on video to suggest that Congresswoman Greene did anything,” Dyer told The Washington Post.

Voters for Tomorrow told WaPo they were “talking to our legal team. We’re keeping our options open. Obviously, it’s very inappropriate for anyone to engage in violence and that does not stop at members of Congress.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene “Swatted” Twice in Two Days

Georgia police arrived at the home of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) after receiving a false report of an active shooter, marking the second time in two days that the Congresswoman endured a “swatting” incident.

The Rome Police Department classified the incident as a “swatting,” a dangerous prank that involves falsely reporting a violent crime to police to get SWAT teams to raid a victim’s home.

According to Forbes, police received a phone call around 3 a.m. on Thursday about a man “possibly shooting his family members and then himself” at Greene’s house. Two police officers visited the lawmaker’s home and confirmed that the tip was fake.

The bogus report “was received on what appeared to be a suicide crisis line from an internet chat,” with the caller saying that someone “came out as transgender and claimed they shot the family.”

The caller used a virtual private network (VPN), making their location unclear.

The Rome Police Department also responded to a phony report of a “subject being shot multiple times” at Greene’s house. Police said 911 dispatchers later got another call from the suspect, claiming to be “upset about Mrs. Greene’s political view on transgender youth rights.”

The incident is under a joint investigation by local police and U.S. Capitol Police.
