From trying to impeach Biden to harassing people, Marjorie Taylor Greene is back at it again

WASHINGTON, DC - NOVEMBER 12: Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) arrives to the Hyatt Regency hotel on Capitol Hill on November 12, 2020 in Washington, DC. Greene will be the first person elected to Congress to openly support the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Georgia's 14th Congressional District Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R), a QAnon enthusiast, hasn't wavered from her promise at the Trump impeachment hearing— the promise to present articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden.

Apparently, she went ahead and filed articles of impeachment against him. Funny enough, her swift action against him comes right in the midst of advocacy groups urging for her resignation.


On Thursday, Greene posted a video to Twitter, saying, "I just filed Articles of Impeachment on President Joe Biden, we'll see how this goes."

She also posted screenshots of the articles of impeachment against Biden to Twitter as well, claiming that he should be removed from office based on "enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors, by allowing his son to influence the domestic policy of a foreign nation and accept various benefits — including financial compensation — from foreign nationals in exchange for certain favors."

Why must everything be posted to social media?

Anyways, Greene, of course, is not the only person to want impeachment against Biden. Some right-wing Republicans also claim that Biden used his platform to promote his son Hunter's business endeavors. But according to The New York Times, when the GOP actually looked into the matter, there was no sound evidence of any wrongdoing. That's right; there was no wrongdoing.

The wave of confusion that came over me when I saw it was something else.

In 2019, the FBI and federal prosecutors issued a subpoena for a laptop and hard drive alleged to be Hunter Biden's. Still, once examined, they realized that there was nothing to suggest money laundering. Naturally, many of Greene's claims are based on dubious allegations.

Moreover, it seems to me that Greene is using the impeachment filing as a way to promote her message and fundraise. This doesn't really come as a surprise given what appears to be QAnon leaders' money is the motivation attitude.

Greene asked supporters to sign petitions and donate to push the impeachment, yet according to Business Insider, it says that the money will go to the Green for Congress. So, where is the money actually going?

The congresswoman also faced opposition from gun advocacy groups calling for her resignation after Media Matters for America uncovered appalling statements that Greene made in a 2018 Facebook post about the Parkland school shooting. Long story short, she believed the shooting was fake, adding more insult to injury to people's experiences within the country. There have also been more videos to surface of her following and harassing gun control activist David Hogg.

More advocacy groups such as Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety are urging Greene's resignation. The NAACP also created a petition after the January 6 Capitol Hill riots demanding that lawmakers resign, including Green, who still objects to the 2020 presidential election results, despite the televised atrocities of that day.

What's the moral of the story here? The ability to refrain from using social media to spew baseless and often offensive claims to a country you serve.

Women founders continue to come up against common challenges and biases - solving this problem is bigger than supporting women, it’s about supporting the national economy.

Women founders continue to come up against common challenges and biases

Starting a business may have historically been perceived as a man’s game, but this couldn’t be further from reality. Research shows women are actually more likely than men to actively choose to start their own business – often motivated by the desire to be their own boss or to have a better work-life balance and spend more time with their family.

How am I doing as a parent?

Evaluating yourself is hard. It's even harder when attempting to assess your parenting because there's no set guide and nothing to count, measure, or quantify.

How am I doing as a parent?

Some time ago, I met my lovely friend for a drink, straight off the train from London. She told me about a very intense performance review she had at work recently, which, although scary, was incredibly useful; it gave her a general sense of how she was doing and areas to work on.

And it struck me we don't get this feedback as parents. Am I doing a good job? I have no idea.
