Rep. Marjorie Tylor Greene wins against leftists trying to prevent her from running for second term

Accusation by leftists that some members of Congress supported an “insurrection” on Jan. 6, 2021 in the U.S. Capitol was deflated in a Georgia court on Friday, which cleared Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican, to run for a second term.

Judge Charles Beaudrot said Friday that the group, “Free Speech for People,” which brought the lawsuit, did not prove in any way that Greene had engaged in an insurrection, nor did she take part in plotting any attack on the Capitol.

Beaudrot said that Greene’s words were protected by the First Amendment and did not represent an attempt to overthrow the government.

In Alaska, leftists in the Alaska House of Representatives have sought to sanction Rep. David Eastman because he attended the Jan. 6, 2021 rally outside the Capitol, and had listened to the speech by former President Donald Trump.

As recent as January, Democrats in the House were trying to punish Eastman because he is a member of the Oath Keepers, whose leader has been arrested in connection with a breach of the U.S. Capitol during a protest that turned riotous.

“I think what we’ve been learning about Rep. Eastman is extremely concerning. And I think it needs to be addressed. We at least need to look into it as a Legislature and figure out what action is warranted,” said Rep. Calvin Schrage, to the Associated Press. Many a caucus meeting by the Democrats focused on what could be done about Eastman.

“This membership in the Oath Keepers is troubling,” said Rep. Matt Claman, an Anchorage Democrat, to the AP.

Schrage and Claman might take a page from what has just happened in Georgia, and earlier what happened when a similar effort was made to block Rep. Madison Cawthorn, a Republican from North Carolina, from being able to run again. He has also been cleared. The Free Speech for the People group similarly tried to keep Reps. Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar, both of Arizona, from being able to run again because of things they said related to Jan. 6, 2021. The attempts to remove these Republicans from office is based on a loose interpretation of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which says those who took an oath to the Constitution, and then “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” may not hold office.

  1. These Leftists in the Alaska legislature are full of crap. Trying to shut-up anybody that doesn’t agree with them. There is no insurrection. But there might be a bloody civil war brewing. Even here in Alaska.

    • Exactly! Like over turning 49 years of constitutional precedence! The Judiciary, not politicians!

  2. The real insurrectionists on Jan 6 were the members of Antifa and Oregon Anarchists who were paid to cause mayhem and lead the mob into the White House. Security was very light even with looming threats and Nancy Pelosi enabled it by doing nothing. Good for you Ms Green. It’s just sad Democrats cannot field a viable candidate, its all about trickery and then personal attacks.

  3. Greene is a Georgia problem. She’s the rights version of AOC and Hilary Clinton wrapped into one nut job person. Conservatives support her at their peril.

    Eastman often seems to be a shameless self promoter. But his personal affiliations are issues for his district and nobody else.

    QAnon and Oath Keepers are this weeks boogie man. If they thought it would get traction he’d be a Martian Klansman.

    The most telling thing is how the useless AK GOP sits on the sidelines.
    Speaks to how much he’s disliked by everybody.

  4. Suzanne– Thank you for calling them leftists. They’re not at all ‘liberal’ or ‘progressive.’ But what they are focused and intent upon, is cancelling, destroying and impeding anyone that supports enforcing constitutional limits and states rights. They are collectivist globalists and are active participants in the great reset, which requires our rights are stripped, one by one. And our economy crushed, which is slowly occurring now.

  5. Anyone trying to claim that the capitol protests on 1/6/21 were an “insurrection” is guilty of the worst sort of partisan exaggeration, dishonesty and malevolence.

  6. I am so sick of do nothing leftists playing this I am so good game, if their energy was spent on what they were elected to accomplish things would be much better. The Alaska Legislature is like a day care full of self serving spoiled brats,. Who will long be rembered for the things they fouled up than fixed, the PFD mess will be their legacy.

  7. The problem for Republicans is people like this insane Greene. Greene and some of the other loony tunes give Democrats an edge.

    Greene appeared, in her texts to Meadows (Trumps COS) to be calling for martial law:

    “In our private chat with only Members, several are saying the only way to save our Republic is for Trump to call for Marshall (sic) law,” Greene’s text said.

    Ronald Reagan would have disavowed people like this. That Trump embraces them makes it more likely Democrats will win.

    Best case? Donald Trump Jr. runs for President. We need someone young, without all the horrible baggage Trump Sr. brings.

  8. First of all, I do not like MTG much at all. She is the right’s equivalent of AOC. Loudmouth, confrontational, and really not qualified to be in the position she is in. Sorry, but aside from pissing off the left, she really does not bring much to the table.
    .
    However, this suit was laughable, and getting it tossed is the best thing I have heard in ages. This attempt to prevent someone from ever holding a national office because of an opinion she expressed about the events of Jan 6th does not meet the red-face test for treason. If the same tactic was used against Pelosi, Biden, Shumer, or even AOC, the left and the media (sorry to repeat myself) would be running on 24/7 about how laughable it is.

  9. Wish we had MTG in Alaska. Sure beats the hell out of RINO Lisa Murkowski, who does whatever her Democrat Masters tell her to do.

  10. Yeah MTG! You are the model of what a Representative of the people should be. Drain the Swamp and give the Rinos like Murkowski the boot! Dan Sullivan, you are on notice. Stop fueling the Swamp’s money laundering operation in Ukraine. You are spending billions of dollars propping up Obama’s & Biden’s criminal organization there. Let the Azov Battalion (Neo-Nazis) die! That group of mercenaries are killing innocent Ukrainian citizens and using them as human shields against the Russians. The Russians have been trying to protect and extradite the citizens from their inhuman activities. There is blood on American politicians hands. Redirect the people’s money to our southern border and stop the invasion into America. Treason and Sedition are still punishable by death!

  11. Step by tepid (or not so tepid) step, dissent is being criminalized in this country. I’m glad this particular attack was thwarted.

    They come for the nut jobs (or rather, those they portray as nut jobs) first. If they are not stopped at that point, it is too late to stop them in enforcing their will on everyone else.

  12. What’s funny but not the HaHa type. Is how many people get the edited versions of MTG interviews ( you know the ones cherry picked to spoon feed the self proclaimed “ informed “😉neigh sayer’s here.)
    The tabloid super spreaders said she’s a kook so it must be so.
    The audacity of honoring an oath is atrocious in today’s age……. Unless there’s a rainbow somehow involve.

  13. From Wikipedia’s entry for MTG: “ Greene has promoted far-right, white supremacist, and antisemitic conspiracy theories including the white genocide conspiracy theory,[6][7] QAnon, and Pizzagate,[8][9] as well as other disproven conspiracy theories such as false flag mass shootings, the Clinton body count, and multiple relating to 9/11.[10][11] Before running for Congress, she advocated for executing prominent Democratic politicians.[12] As a Congresswoman, she equated the Democratic Party with Nazis[13][14] and compared COVID-19 safety measures to the persecution of Jews during the Holocaust.[15] She apologized for the latter comparison.[16] In January 2022, Greene’s personal Twitter account was permanently suspended for posting COVID-19 vaccine misinformation.[17] During the Russo-Ukrainian War Greene has promoted Russian propaganda and praised Vladimir Putin.[18]”

    • Wikipedia is pure left wing propaganda. The editors automatically label anyone they don’t like as a “right wing extremist”. All of the examples given are taken out of context and blown way out of proportion.

      • While I would not call wikipedia a credible source, it is a good start at background information on someone or something.

        But to call the “editors” of wikipedia left wing propaganda is a stretch too far. Literally anyone can edit or add to an article/page.

        That ability is not limited to the left wing

  14. I like MTG. People say she’s crazy, but she’s real. She’s not a fake politician, like most others in Congress. She’s a long time business owner, mother, and a strong believer in Jesus. She makes waves, because she stands up for her constituents. We need more people like her in Congress.

  15. I love it when a cute, little Georgia peach can stick it in the faces of traitorous Democrats and prevail judicially.

  16. Gotta remember folks: When a Democrat speaks, it’s free speech. When a Conservative speaks, it’s misinformation and destructive to our democracy.

  17. They need to leave David Eastman alone. They being the ones that want him dismissed from the committee are the ones that are turncoats that say they are going to vote conservative and when they get to Juneau they turned out like everybody else that lives in Juneau and that goes there and doesn’t do their job!! At least he tries to do his job.
