Do you know who really runs this country?
The liars & psychotic left wing communists in the media who only care about self-awarded Pulitzers, clicks for cash, and pushing weak politicians around.
On Thursday, I buried my father and held my mother’s hand as we said goodbye.

"On Thursday, I buried my father and held my mother’s hand as we said goodbye. On Friday, sick and evil POS in the media attacked me with phrases I never said or wrote.
"They released a staff level draft proposal from an outside group that I hadn’t read. The scum and liars in the media are calling me a racist by taking something out of context."
Greene claimed it was a "repeat of Jewish Space Lasers," which she said was "another term I never used & the media made up."
"It’s more proof so-called journalists lie and create false narratives. The media are the ones focused on race & use it to divide the American people with hate through identity politics," she went on.

"I believe in America First with all my heart and that means every American, of every race, creed, and color.
"I will never back down and I will never stop fighting for America First. There are tens of millions of Americans who agree.
"We are side by side. People over politicians. The hyenas in the media are terrified. So are the Democrats. And so are the weak politicos that float around whichever the wind blows."
Greene's "America First" plan was accused of promoting "Anglo-Saxon America traditions," as well as questioning election integrity, according to a flier shared by Punchbowl News.
GOP conference chair Liz Cheney denounced Green’s plan and said that "racism, nativism, and anti-Semitism are evil."
I believe anyone that joins this caucus should have their committees stripped, and the Republican conference should expel them from conference participation. While we can’t prevent someone from calling themselves Republican, we can loudly say they don’t belong to us. https://t.co/ULEF5MRyWf— Adam Kinzinger (@AdamKinzinger) April 16, 2021
"History teaches we all have an obligation to confront & reject such malicious hate," she said.
The America First Caucasus flier also argues how “mass immigration” is a threat to the United States.
The flier claimed migration threatens “the reality of large segments of our society, as well as the long-term existential future of America as a unique country with a unique culture and a unique identity being put at unnecessary risk, is something our leaders can afford to ignore no longer."

In response to the backlash, Greene reportedly decided to scrap the plan. Her spokesperson Nick Dyer said on Saturday afternoon that she will not be launching the platform.
"The Congresswoman wants to make clear that she is not launching anything. This was an early planning proposal and nothing was agreed to or approved," Dyer told CNN.
Dryer previously told the publication on Friday that the "America First Caucus" platform would be "announced to the public very soon."
Greene said on Saturday that she plans to push forward former President Donald Trump’s America First agenda.
“I have plans to drive President Trump’s America First agenda with my Congressional colleagues but we won’t let the media or anyone else push the narrative," she tweeted.
"America First policies will save this country for all of us, our children, and ultimately the world,”
Congressional caucuses are groups of lawmakers who have goals to push forward specific policies and don’t operate as part of the official congressional legislative structure.
