Rep. Greene ousted from far right Freedom Caucus after fight with … – Chattanooga Times Free Press

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has been kicked out of the biggest conservative club in Congress over her nasty feud with fellow MAGA stalwart Rep. Lauren Boebert.
The right-wing House Freedom Caucus ousted Greene in large part for calling Boebert a “little b—-” in a quarrel that erupted on the House floor.
“The straw that broke the camel’s back was publicly saying things about another member in terms that no one should,” said Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., according to Politico. The vote to expel the Georgia Republican took place late last month but Harris was the first member to confirm it.
“The way she referred to a fellow member was probably not the way we expect our members to refer to other fellow, especially female, members,” Harris added.
Greene hurled insults at Boebert in a dispute over their dueling improbable proposals to impeach President Joe Biden, with Greene accusing her Colorado colleague of pandering for donations toward the end of a fundraising period.
“You’ve been nothing but a little bitch to me,” Greene told Boebert, the Daily Beast reported last month. “And you copied my articles of impeachment after I asked you to co-sponsor them.”
“I’m not in middle school,” Boebert countered.
It wasn’t the first time the two women have fought publicly even though they mostly share the same archconservative world view and joined forces to heckle Biden at his State of the Union address in 2022.
Greene confronted Boebert in a congressional ladies room over Boebert’s refusal to back Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s bid for House Speaker.
Greene, a Georgia representative from one of the most conservative Republican districts in the nation, has drawn some flack from fellow right-wingers for forging a strong alliance with McCarthy, who represents the GOP’s establishment wing.
She also backed McCarthy’s compromise with Biden to raise the debt ceiling, a deal that is anathema to most of the 45-member Freedom Caucus.
“All of that mattered,” Harris said.
Boebert, on the other hand, has hewed much closer to Freedom Caucus orthodoxy despite representing a district that only barely leans Republican.
After her ouster, Greene will be barred from joining the group’s biweekly strategy sessions during which members reportedly discuss long-shot plans to shut down the government and impeach Biden and most of his Cabinet. They also use the sessions to brainstorm about ways of undermining the GOP leadership, which they consider to be far too cozy with Democrats.

UFC news: Erin Blanchfield gives update on next fight, title hopes – MMA Junkie

Published

on





Erin Blanchfield patiently awaits her next UFC assignment.
Although it’s not totally clear what that will be, Blanchfield (12-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) assumes an important matchup with Manon Fiorot (11-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) is likely. The two flyweight combatants have established themselves as top contenders in a division that awaits a championship rematch between champion Alexa Grasso and former champion Valentina Shevchenko while they both recover from injury.
“Yeah, it’s definitely stalling,” Blanchfield recently said during an online live stream for digital wallet platform HUMBL. “I feel like I’ve had a couple No. 1 contender fights now. But you know, I’m still pretty young and gained valuable experience in those fights. … Whether it’s an interim or not, I’ll beat (Fiorot), and then I should definitely get a title next.”
Although UFC CEO Dana White has indicated it’s next, no timeline has been revealed for Grasso (16-3-1 MMA, 8-3-1 UFC) vs. Shevchenko (23-4-1 MMA, 12-3-1 UFC). Shevchenko had hand surgery in mid-September. Coincidentally, Grasso underwent hand surgery in early October.
Should there be further delays, Blanchfield wouldn’t mind seeing an interim title implemented. She’s healthy and ready to go, following a slight nasal fracture suffered in a unanimous decision win over Taila Santos in August.
“I haven’t been told about that yet,” Blanchfield said. I would definitely push for that. That’s something I’d definitely be interested in. I’m not sure when Valentina and Alexa are going to be ready to fight again. I know I think they’re on a similar timeline in their recovery. I would hope that if it ends up being longer, they’d have me and Manon fight for an interim.”

/ CBS Sacramento
SACRAMENTO COUNTY – Two men died after they were shot outside of a bar in Sacramento County early Sunday morning, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office said. 
Deputies responded to Sacto By Night at 7121 Governors Circle at about 1:45 a.m. 
A group of people who were leaving the bar got into a fight outside, leading to a shooting, deputies said. 
The victims, who were two men, died at the scene, deputies said. One of them was the owner of the bar.
Investigators with the sheriff’s office believe a group of gang members who initially refused to leave the nightclub at closing is at the center of the incident. Those gang members apparently got involved in a fight in the parking lot, investigators said, with the suspected shooter being one of those gang members.
Witnesses described a white vehicle that took off from the scene. Deputies said the CHP located a vehicle matching the description and detained four people from that vehicle. 
The people detained have since been identified as being allegedly involved in the shooting. Several guns have been recovered. 
According to the sheriff’s office, the names of the suspects will be released once homicide and related charges are filed.
Brandon comes to CBS13 from Action News Now (KHSL/KNVN) in Chico where he spent two years as the Digital Content Manager.
