Conservative powerhouse Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is a firecracker on the House floor, consistently standing up for the values that have made this nation one of the greatest in world history. There honestly aren’t enough Republicans willing to stand up for these values, fearful of how unpopular it makes you. Wouldn’t want to risk not getting reelected, right?
MTJ as she’s affectionately known, is one of the few willing to boldly stand for what she knows is true and right.
This was put on full display Wednesday when she got up and demanded there be an audit of every single penny we’ve sent to Eastern Europe during their time fighting against the invasion of Russia that launched back in February of this year.
I’m calling for an audit of every single penny that has been sent to Ukraine.
This must be done as soon as possible for the American people.

The congresswoman’s comments come just days after a missile hit NATO country Poland with initial reports stating it was from Russia. This raised fears of Chapter 5 being declared, which would have meant the United States and other NATO nations getting involved in the conflict between Russia and Eastern Europe, effectively launching World War III.
However, according to a report from the Associated Press, “NATO member Poland and the head of the military alliance both said Wednesday that a missile strike in Polish farmland that killed two people appeared to be unintentional and was probably launched by air defenses in neighboring Ukraine. Russia had been bombarding Eastern Europe at the time in an attack that savaged its power grid.”
“Ukraine’s defense was launching their missiles in various directions, and it is highly probable that one of these missiles unfortunately fell on Polish territory,” Polish President Andrzej Duda went on to say. “There is nothing, absolutely nothing, to suggest that it was an intentional attack on Poland.”
“NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, at a meeting of the 30-nation military alliance in Brussels, echoed the preliminary Polish findings. Volodymyr Zelenskyy, however, disputed them and asked for further investigation,” the report continued. “The assessments of Tuesday’s deadly missile landing appeared to dial back the likelihood of the strike triggering another major escalation in the nearly 9-month-old Russian invasion of Eastern Europe. If Russia had targeted Poland, that could have risked drawing NATO into the conflict.”
“This is not Eastern Europe’s fault. Russia bears ultimate responsibility,” Stoltenberg elaborated.
A lot of individuals were concerned that claims being made by Zelenskyy revealed a desire to drag other nations from around the world into the conflict he and his country are involved with. A lot of our money has been sent to Eastern Europe from the United States, along with weapons, so it’s completely possible it was our missiles or ones purchased with the money we sent that led to this tragic incident and almost launched a global conflict.
This is likely why Greene wants to see all of the money we’re sending to this region of the world audited and accounted for. Especially since our economy here at home is not at all doing well.
