Greene: Earthquakes and eclipses a sign from God to ‘repent’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) said recent earthquakes and a coming eclipse are “strong signs” from God that America needs to “repent,” shortly after tremors shook the New York City region Friday.

“God is sending America strong signs to tell us to repent. Earthquakes and eclipses and many more things to come. I pray that our country listens,” Greene said in a post to X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, Friday.

The Georgia lawmaker’s remarks came just hours after a 4.8 magnitude earthquake hit Lebanon, N.J., approximately 50 miles from Manhattan. It was recorded at a depth close to 3 miles, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

Greene’s comments also come as a total solar eclipse is expected to shroud parts of North America in darkness Monday.

It will travel from Texas to pass through Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, according to NASA. Greene’s home state of Georgia is not in the “path of totality.”

It’s the first total solar eclipse since 2017, and the next one is not expected until August 2044, per NASA.

Greene has been derided for peddling conspiracy theories in the past, such as suggesting that California wildfires were caused by space lasers controlled by a powerful Jewish family. She has also backed former President Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election was stolen.
