  • Marjorie Taylor Greene said a GOP-led House would probe firms that stopped donating to Republicans.

  • She said some "big corporations" and lobbyists have ceased donations after the Capitol riots.

  • Greene also accused the corporations of "corporate communism."

Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said on Wednesday that if the GOP wins a majority in Congress, it will investigate companies that stopped donating to them after the Capitol riot.

Speaking on former Trump adviser Steve Bannon's   "War Room"   podcast, Greene accused unnamed businesses of "corporate communism." She suggested that she and her Republican colleagues should probe such companies for their conduct.




"You know what they did after January 6, Steve? They stopped donating. All the lobbyists, all the big corporations stopped donating to a whole bunch of my Republican colleagues that they used to donate to," Greene said.

"They said: 'Oh no, we can't support you because of the big lie,' or whatever they want to call it," she continued.

"There is going to be investigations coming," Greene added. "And there should be. There definitely should be, because the way corporations have conducted themselves, I've always called it corporate communism."

Greene also advised big businesses to "lawyer up" and focus on "customer service" instead of politics.

It's unclear what investigations Greene wants to conduct. She also did not provide a list of corporations that she wanted the GOP to investigate. A spokesperson for Greene did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Axios reported on Wednesday   that several large firms are hiring lawyers in anticipation of a Republican-controlled House. They are preparing for a possible GOP revenge against companies that support the Democratic Party, per Axios.

Greene currently lacks the power to launch investigations into corporations. The Georgia representative was   stripped of her committee assignments in February 2021.   She was accused at the time of promoting right-wing conspiracy theories and endorsing violence against her congressional colleagues. Greene objected to being stripped of her positions, claiming, per   NPR , that she was just a "very regular American" who "stumbled across" the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Separately, President Donald Trump has   discussed giving Greene an important position in his administration   if he were to win the presidency again,   Rolling Stone reported   in October. A source close to Trump told Rolling Stone this role could be a senior position at the Department of Justice.

Robert Draper, a journalist at The New York Times Magazine, told   the Daily Beast   in October that Trump has repeatedly discussed picking Greene as his 2024 running mate because she has been "unflaggingly loyal" to him.

Greene previously told Draper that she   "would be honored"   to serve as Trump's running mate, but also said she   would likely be considered too divisive to take on the role   — even by the GOP's standards. She also told Draper that  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy should be prepared to give her more power and leeway   if he wants to keep the Republican base happy.

Greene is currently running for re-election in Georgia's 14th District.

This is how authoritarian regimes operate.

Did you see the video of the former president of China being escorted out of the Communist Party Congress ceremony a few days ago?

It would be like having Mike Pence escorted out of a State of The Union speech (which is better than sending a mob to hang him, I guess).

Regarding a potential TT and MTG run

Jimmy Kimmel Has Blunt Advice For Donald Trump And Marjorie Taylor Greene

Ed Mazza
Tue, October 25, 2022 at 1:08 AM
Jimmy Kimmel  spotted what he thinks is a surefire way to bring down  Donald Trump  and the former president’s family business.

The late-night host noted that the Trump Organization’s   fraud trial   is getting underway in New York, with the company potentially facing up to $1.6 million in fines.

“Which doesn’t seem like much,” Kimmel said. “The irony is, if you really want to take down the Trump Organization, all you have to do is let Trump keep running it.”

He also found some more alarming news: The ex-president has reportedly spoken to Rep.   Marjorie Taylor Greene   (R-Ga.),   who spoke at a white nationalist event   earlier this year, as   his possible running mate   should he seek the presidency in 2024.

“Could you imagine that?” Kimmel asked. “The only thing those two should be running together is a Hooters in Fort Lauderdale.”

I really wish MTG would just shut her big mouth and go away! The individual should never have run for or been elected to public office. She is a stain on the state of Georgia and the country.

When someone call in a false crime being committed at a residence, in this case MTG and a SWAT team shows up at her house.

I wonder what kind of grades she got in high school? If she paid attention in POD (problems of democracy you probably call it Civics) she would know that corporations have every right to donate to the candidates of their choice or pull their donations. It's a free speech thing. Or is she just now learning about how dark money works and she doesn't like it one bit?

I've always called it corporate communism."

What an idiot. She should be forced to undergo mandatory intelligence tests to see what age level  (K-8)  her mind is operating at.

There's communism for you.

I've always felt that candidates for public office should be subjected to a series of tests to ascertain their mental status, their IQ, their understanding of the law and the workings of democracy, their specific knowledge of the office that they are running for and their basic moral code. 

Any one of those basic tests would automatically eliminate the majority of MAGA candidates.
