The Republican Party is the party of Speaker of the House Mike Johnson of Louisiana.
It is the party of New York Congressman George Santos.
It is the party of Oklahoma Senator Markwayne Mullin.
It is the party of Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville.
It is the party of Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.
It is the party of Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert.
It is the party of Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz.
It is the party of Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan.
Does anything more need to be said?
And this is just the tip of the iceberg on the disaster that the Republican Party has become!
With the Senate retirements and elections of 2022 now part of history, the US Senate has finally hit the 2,000 mark of membership after 234 years of history since 1789.
There are 2,002 people who have served in the Senate, most by election, but some by appointment, with 202 appointed to fill a vacancy since 1913, with the ratification of the 17th Amendment, providing for direct popular election of the US Senate.
Eleven of the present membership of the Senate was originally appointed to fill a vacancy, but have won election to the office since then.
The 8 new Senators are:
Katie Britt (R) Alabama
Ted Budd (R) North Carolina
John Fetterman (D) Pennsylvania
Markwayne Mullin (R) Oklahoma
Eric Schmitt (R) Missouri
J D Vance (R) Ohio
Peter Welch (D) Vermont
All of the above were sworn in opening day of the 118th Congress, January 3, 2023.
Additionally, former Governor Pete Ricketts (R) Nebraska, appointed to replace Senator Ben Sasse, who resigned to become President of the University of Florida, will be sworn in on January 23, 2023 as number 2,002!
Ricketts is part of the family that owns the Chicago Cubs baseball team since 2009!
Shocking beyond belief: 19 US Senators and 154 House of Representatives members in the upcoming 118th Congress (2023-2025) are Election Deniers, in regards to the Presidential Election of 2020!
154 Congressmen and women, out of 222 Republicans, so 67 percent of the House Republican caucus!
19 Senators, men and women, out of 49 Republicans, so 40 percent of the Senate Republican caucus!
Among the Senators are:
Marsha Blackburn (Tennessee)
Ted Cruz (Texas)
Bill Hagerty (Tennessee)
Josh Hawley (Missouri)
Ron Johnson (Wisconsin)
John Kennedy (Louisiana)
James Lankford (Oklahoma)
Cynthia Lummis (Wyoming)
Rick Scott (Florida)
Tommy Tuberville (Alabama)
and five newly elected Senators:
Ted Budd (North Carolina)
Katie Britt (Alabama)
Markwayne Mullin (Oklahoma)
Eric Schmitt (Missouri)
J D Vance (Ohio)
So the states of Tennessee, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Alabama have both of their US Senators as Election Deniers!
What a total disgrace!
