Report details how Jim Jordan’s ‘cultish behavior’ catapulted him to the ‘highest ranks of the House GOP’
The 57-year-old Jordan, who was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2006, was a founding member of the far-right House Freedom Caucus — which, Beavers notes, “made legislative life hell for (House Minority Leader Kevin) McCarthy’s two predecessors in Republican leadership,” Boehner and Ryan. Boehner has described Jordan as a “legislative terrorist.”
Combative, overbearing and shrill, Jordan fit right in with the MAGA movement after Trump won the 2016 presidential election. Jordan has been a vigorous Trump defender, from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation to the former president’s two impeachments. And since becoming House minority leader, McCarthy has, according to Beavers, found it expedient to ally himself with the Ohio congressman.
“Of course, Trump himself played a major role in Jordan’s journey from the fringes to the highest ranks of the House GOP,” Beavers explains. “The former president got involved in the McCarthy-Jordan leadership race in 2018 to smooth tensions between the two, and Jordan’s support of the bombastic Trump is as critical to his rise this Congress as it is to Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-Wyo.) fall.”
Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia, discussing Jordan with Politico, commented that he has “led the charge” with the type of “cult-ish behavior” that has “contributed to profound dysfunctionality and debasement of a proud and major political party.”
Beavers says of Jordan, “His embrace of shutdown politics and political brawls, his avid defense of Trump at every turn, his skill at lobbing attacks at his opponents — not to mention his ties to a sexual abuse scandal on the Ohio State University wrestling team — mean Jordan will be forever infamous among Democrats. Among them, Pelosi is seen as heroic for blocking Jordan from the January 6 probe.”
Name one good thing the republicans have done for the USA in the last 25 years.
They won’t even get vaccinated, they have decided their lives and USA democracy are worthless, not me.
They have decided that your life and your vote is worthless, think about that.

Why is nobody born in Vatican City? Nobody is born in Vatican City because there are no hospitals or facilities to cater to the birth of children. All citizens are from other countries, and most of these are celibate men. It means that they are not allowed to get married or have children due to religion.
