On Wednesday, Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney was removed from her leadership position in the House GOP by her fellow congressional Republicans.
The Never-Trumper congresswoman has spent the past few months aiming her fire at former President Trump instead of focusing on the radical Left-wing policies of President Biden and his fellow Democrats.
And that’s a problem. Republicans must be unified heading into the 2022 midterm elections to thwart the radical Left’s attempt to fundamentally transform America.
But instead, folks like Liz Cheney can’t stop talking about Trump, even though the man is no longer president.
And now, in turn, Liz Cheney is no longer a leader in the House.
Following her ouster, Cheney once again denounced Trump as she was descended on by reporters.
Cheney said that she “will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.”
Earlier in the day, Cheney told the GOP Caucus that “We cannot let the former president drag us backward and make us complicit in his efforts to unravel our democracy. If you want leaders who will enable and spread his destructive lies, I’m not your person, you have plenty of others to choose from. That will be their legacy.”
But the truth is that most everyday Americans probably have little interest in the Liz Cheney infighting.
This is yet another made-for-TV production ginned up by the establishment swamp media, nothing more than inside the Beltway drama meant to elicit anger among Republican voters.
At the end of the day, Liz Cheney had no real power over the Republican Party. She was merely the third-ranking Republican in the House. It wasn’t as if she was the leader of the House GOP, so this story is overblown.
The media are treating Cheney as if she is a modern-day Cicero, punished for speaking truth to power—which is amazing coming from a group that has spent years ripping her and her former vice president father to shreds.
She is now a useful idiot for the mainstream media and their Democrat allies to exploit to push their narrative that Donald Trump is the biggest threat to our democracy since Adolf Hitler.
Liz Cheney joins former President George W. Bush, Senator Mitt Romney, and the late Senator John McCain as people who were treated horribly by the media only to turn around and become media darlings when they came out to condemn Trump.
A rule of thumb for conservatives: If the media celebrates a Republican, then you know that Republican is on the wrong side of the issue.
There was no way that a leader of the Republican caucus was going to be allowed to continue in that position after publicly chastising the most powerful figure in the party.
To believe otherwise is simply being naïve.
The only thing that should matter to Republicans at this point is defeating Democrats next year and wresting the speaker’s gavel out of the hands of Nancy Pelosi.
All hands must be on board for the campaign.
So, good riddance, Liz Cheney.
