House Speaker Mike Johnson Slams Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Threat to Oust Him as a ‘Distraction’

Published April 3, 2024

As House Republicans grapple with infighting over various issues, much attention has been given to House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), who has been the subject of criticism from conservatives over issues like spending and others.

The internal strife has raised speculation that Johnson could possibly face the same fate as former Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who was ousted last year. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) recently filed a motion to vacate against Johnson but has not pressed the matter, claiming it was merely a warning.

After the passage of the recent government funding package, Green said it was “a betrayal of the American people” and “a betrayal of the Republican voters.” She slammed Johnson over the border crisis, abortion, and other issues. Other Republican lawmakers voiced similar objections.

In her remarks, Greene pointed out that Johnson had been admonished all week long, “Do not break the 72-hour rule.” She continued:

He heard from all of us…all week long. ‘Allow us to introduce amendments. Allow us to do our jobs. Allow us to represent the districts that voted for us and sent us here.’

We want a secure border, and the Senate proposal of legalizing 5,000 people coming across the border every day is not securing the border. And this is giving them every point of leverage we have. Also, forcing Republicans to vote on full-term abortion funding in order to fund our military is a complete betrayal of all of our values, and our voters don’t want us to be doing that.

Nevertheless, Speaker Johnson appears to be unfazed. During an appearance on Fox News, Johnson dismissed Greene’s attacks, saying that “all of my other Republican colleagues recognize this is a distraction from our mission,” which is to “grow the House Majority, win the Senate, and win the White House.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) reiterated her calls for House Speaker Mike Johnson’s (R-LA) ousting just days after he had praised her as his “friend.” The congresswoman from Georgia amped up her attacks against Johnson on Tuesday night, claiming during an interview with Steve Bannon that Johnson is “doing the Deep State’s dirty work.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Greene shared an article from the Federalist that drew parallels between Johnson’s and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) stances on Ukraine. Greene cited the article as further evidence of why Johnson should be removed.

“Mike Johnson’s ‘Ukraine First’ Agenda Shows He’s No Different Than Mitch McConnell’ And Mitch McConnell has a 6% approval rating among Republicans,” Greene said. “Again, we need a new Speaker of the House.”

The Washington Examiner reached out to Johnson for comment.

Greene filed a motion last month to vacate Johnson from the speakership, but since it was not a privileged motion, the action was more of a threat than anything else. Johnson later stated that he had exchanged texts with Greene over the weekend and presented their relationship as cordial, even calling her a “friend” and expressing sympathy with her perspective.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
