Schiff hammered at the GOP over posts made by Rep. Marjorie Greene (R-Ga.)

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California lashed out at Republicans and called the party a “dangerous cult” over a report that the names of Democrat lawmakers were found on a list possessed by a man caught near the U.S. Capitol with a gun and ammunition.

The 71-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday at the Capitol after he shouted at a guardsman and arrested for possessing a pistol without a license. Police said that he had been at the protest at the Capitol and posted memes related to the QAnon conspiracy theory on his social media.

Schiff used the incident to hammer away at Republican leadership on Thursday after CNN uncovered several Facebook posts from Rep. Marjorie Greene (R-Ga.) calling for the execution of Democratic leaders.

“You look at some of these members, including Representative Greene, who have threatened on social media prior to her election other members of Congress,” said Schiff to Wolf Blitzer on his CNN show.

“You have members like her who have suggested that attacks against students, murderous attacks on high school campuses like at Parkland were somehow fake, fraudulent, or false flag operations. And they’re being rewarded by [House Minority Leader Rep.] Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) with assignments on the education committee!” he continued.

“You know, the GOP leadership is becoming little more than a cult and a dangerous cult,” said Schiff.

Greene responded to the reports by claiming that the posts on her Facebook were written by members of her team, and did not express her personal views.

Schiff also criticized McCarthy for travelling to Florida to meet with President Donald Trump at his Mar-A-Lago residence.

“That is sadly where the GOP leadership is at in Congress, and that’s part of the reason why the Capitol looks like an armed fortress right now,” said Schiff.

Schiff said that he was disappointed at the permanent fencing being erected around the Capitol after the rioting by supporters of former President Donald Trump.

“It’s just awful to see the necessary presence of so many troops, National Guard troops, guarding the nation’s Capitol,” he continued. “I would have never imagined that would be necessary, and I hope that it won’t be necessary indefinitely.”

Here’s the video of Schiff’s comments:

President Joe Biden implemented by executive action on Wednesday some of the climate change policies advocated in the Green New Deal after he said that he didn’t support it in 2019.

Socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, who was one of the main authors of the controversial plan, confirmed that she was pleased with the orders from Biden that were similar to the Green New Deal.

Biden sang a different tune during the first presidential debate against former President Donald Trump in September 2019 when he was backed into a corner and moderator Chris Wallace asked him directly if he supported the Green New Deal.

“No, I don’t support the Green New Deal,” Biden said at the time.

“Oh you don’t? Well, that’s a big statement! That means you just lost the radical left! Gone!” Trump replied.

“I support the Biden plan that I put forward. The Biden plan, which is different than what he calls the radical Green New Deal,” Biden said.

  • Part of Biden’s executive orders include:
  • Indefinitely halting all oil and gas leases on federal land
  • Goal of doubling offshore wind energy production by 2030
  • Elevating climate change to a national security priority
  • Creating a White House Office of Domestic Climate Policy

Ocasio-Cortez hinted, “It’s almost as if we helped shape the platform,” when a reporter noted the similarity between Biden’s actions and the Green New Deal.

She also took credit for a “Civilian Climate Corps,” an apprenticeship program for young people to train them for jobs in the climate energy industry.

In July 2019, the chief of staff for Ocasio-Cortez at the time admitted that the real intent of the Green New Deal was not to battle climate change, but to change the entire economy.

“Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Saikat Chakrabarti asked. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

The Biden’s executive orders are expected to cost about $2 trillion, while some estimates placed the cost of the Green New Deal from Ocasio-Cortez at close to $100 trillion. The socialist democrat fumed at this estimate and said that it would only cost about $10 trillion, which is more than twice the size of the current federal budget.

House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said in a speech on the House floor that Antifa was not to blame for the rioting at the U.S. Capitol, that he accepted President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, but that he would vote against impeachment.

McCarthy was speaking Wednesday during the House debate on whether to impeach President Donald Trump for one article of impeachment for inciting an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by his supporters.

“Let me be clear. Last week’s violent attack on the Capitol was undemocratic, unAmerican, and criminal,” said McCarthy.

“Violence is never a legitimate form of protest. Freedom of speech and assembly under Constitution is rooted in non-violence. Yet the violent mob that descended upon this body was neither peaceful nor Democratic. It acted to disrupt Congress’s Constitutional responsibility,” he continued.

He then denied claims by some in the media and on social media that the rioting and violence was mostly caused by Antifa actors pretending to be Trump supporters.

“Some say the riots were caused by Antifa,” said McCarthy.

“There was absolutely no evidence of that. And conservatives should be the first to say so. Conservatives also know that the only thing that stops mob violence is to meet it with force rooted in justice and backed by moral courage. And last week we saw mob violence met by courage, sacrifice and heroism from the brave men and women who protect this institution every day,” he continued.

He then gave his reasons for not supporting the impeachment.

“I believe impeaching the president in such a short time frame would be a mistake,” said McCarthy.

“No investigations have been completed, no hearings have been held. What’s more, the Senate has confirmed that no trial will begin until after President-elect Biden is sworn in,” he explained.

“But here’s what a vote to impeach would do. A vote to impeach would further divide this nation. A vote to impeach will further fan the flames of partisan division,” said McCarthy. “Most Americans want neither in action nor in retribution, they want durable, bipartisan justice.”

McCarthy went on to squarely put the blame of the rioting on the shoulders of the president.

“That doesn’t mean the president is free from fault. The president bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding,” said McCarthy.

He also said that Congress should enact a fact-finding mission and a censure resolution against the president instead of impeaching him.

The House of Representatives went on to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time for incitement of insurrection in a vote of 232 to 197.
