    The GOP Establishment Has Crafted a Plot to Replace Liz Cheney With A “TINO” (Trumpis

    The GOP Establishment Has Crafted a Plot to Replace Liz Cheney With A “TINO” (Trumpist-In-Name-Only)

    May 5, 2021 (2d ago)

    Kevin McCarthy should have cut Liz Cheney loose months ago when she voted to impeach President Trump during the second sham impeachment trial.

    But he didn’t.

    A strong and respectful leader would have listened to Wyoming and the entire conservative base and stripped her of her leadership titles, but McCarthy wussed out and held a pointless anonymous vote, which Cheney passed with flying colors.

    So, Liz kept her leadership titles and voters seethed with anger.

    But it wasn’t enough for Liz to just put her head down and quietly get back to work. She had to rub voters’ noses in the fact that she was not going anywhere, and she continued her attacks against President Trump and his base.

    Now, after increased backlash over Cheney’s disrespectful attacks, Kevin McCarthy is finally going to do what he should have done in the first place.

    He will hold a public vote to strip Cheney of her leadership titles.
    And that vote could be coming as soon as May 12th.

    But wait, before you get too excited about this so-called GOP power move, there’s a catch.

    In what can only be described as the zenith of congressional GOP retardation, our team of Keystone Republicans are seeking to replace Liz Cheney with yet another neocon establishment nitwit.
    Elise Stefanik.

    Elise and Liz share the same basic establishment ideology and agenda.
    The only difference between the two is that Stefanik defended President Trump during the House impeachment — so I guess that somehow qualifies her to be the third most powerful congressional Republican.

    The race to spoon-feed Elise Stefanik to MAGA voters is on.
    The establishment pundits are out in full force spinning tales of Elise’s journey from “principled conservative” to “Trump loyalist.” As if somehow those two things are not mutually exclusive.

    Here’s what Josh Kraushaar, a writer for National Journal wrote:

    “Elise Stefanik = elected as moderate, new wave Republican who evolved into as a Trump loyalist.
    Liz Cheney =a principled conservative, voted party line frequently in last four years, but spoke out against Trump after Jan. 6.
    Proof positive that Trump loyalty > policy.” [Twitter]

    Yes, Elise was a brave soul to speak out against Trump after January 6th, wasn’t she? She really stuck her neck out with that bold move.
    But are Elise’s policies really “Trump loyalty?”

    Not really. In actuality, Liz Cheney’s policies were far more “Trumpy” than Elise’s were.

    Take a look:

    And speaking of Elise’s so-called pro-Trump ways, let’s look back at how she sharply criticized President Trump on important key issues.
    North County Public Radio put together a “timeline” of Elise’s not-so-Trumpy moves over the past several years.

    For crying out loud, this spineless RINO wimp opposed the border wall:

    Spring 2016: The presidential primaries

    April 11: Rep. Stefanik won’t say who she supports heading into the GOP presidential primary.

    May 5: Stefanik says she’ll support the eventual GOP nominee.

    Summer 2016: Trump locks down the Republican nomination.

    August 5: Stefanik criticizes Trump’s attacks on a “gold star” military family.

    Here’s what Elise said: “I think there is no excuse to be attacking gold star families. Military families deserve our utmost respect.”

    Her words made it sound like Trump didn’t respect our military, and nothing could be further from the truth.

    Fall 2016: The final days before the election

    October 10: Stefanik reacts to the “Access Hollywood” tapes.

    Here’s what Elise said about the Access Hollywood tape: “Donald Trump’s inappropriate, offensive comments are just wrong. No matter when he said them or whatever the context. I hope his apology is sincere.” She later said, “I’ve opposed his rhetoric numerous times toward women.”

    Elise is once again pushing the left’s agenda.

    October 12: Stefanik blasts Trump’s core positions on national defense.

    Here’s what Elise said about Trump’s NATO comments:

    “His statements regarding NATO, his statements regarding Putin, regarding some of the positions in regards to Iraq that he made, regarding the oil fields — I absolutely oppose those. But we also need to look at Hillary Clinton’s failed ethics record.”

    Elise was also upset about Trump’s comments about “taking over” Iraq’s oil fields.

    October 17: Stefanik confirms her support for the Republican nominee — but won’t name Trump.

    Elise would only refer to Trump as “My party’s nominee.”

    January 29 2017: Stefanik speaks out against Trump’s ban on migrants from majority-Muslim countries.

    Here’s what Elise said about the so-called “Muslim Ban”:

    “I oppose President Trump’s rushed and overly broad Executive Order.”

    She opposed the border wall.

    May 10: Stefanik criticizes the proposed border wall.

    Here’s what Elise said about President Trump’s plan for the wall: “I don’t think that’s realistic. I don’t think the president’s plan is exactly right on that.”

    October 17: Stefanik opposes deep budget cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency.

    January 12, 2018: Stefanik is dismayed by “shithole” comment.

    Elise’s spokesperson said this about the comment: “Congresswoman Stefanik strongly believes the President’s comments were wrong and contrary to our American ideals.”

    February 12: Stefanik questions the White House’s stance on a slew of issues — from domestic violence to Russian interference in U.S. elections.

    March 15: Stefanik breaks with the GOP and demands more investigation of Russian election interference.

    Elise was actively pushing the left’s phony Russian conspiracy.
    Here’s what she said about the investigation: “…I will continue to be an outspoken supporter of the Mueller investigation, which I believe is best equipped and our best hope to get to the apolitical truth.”

    March 21: Stefanik criticizes the Trump administration for its slow response to Russian cyberhacking.

    March 26: Stefanik opposes Trump’s intent to break NAFTA.

    Elise shows here what a globalist she is at the very core of her being: “Hopefully we don’t get to that point and can focus on modernizing the trade agreement between those three countries, and how we can strengthen NAFTA and not throw the baby out with the bathwater.”

    May 18: Stefanik joins an upstate Democrat against new tariffs on newsprint imports.

    May 31: Stefanik comes out against the Trump Administration’s tariff-centric trade strategy.

    Here’s what Elise said about Trump’s Canada tariffs: “I strongly oppose these tariffs on our nation’s closest economic partner, Canada.”

    June 5: Stefanik disagrees with President Trump’s claim that he can pardon himself.

    Elise pushed the fake talking point that Trump was going to fire Mueller. Here’s what her spokesperson said: “Congresswoman Stefanik continues to be an outspoken supporter of the Mueller investigation and believes it would be a serious mistake for the president to fire Mueller.”

    June 15: Stefanik calls for an end to family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border.

    July 9: Stefanik again condemns President Trump’s approach to trade disputes.

    July 16: Stefanik restates support for Russia probe after a controversial summit.

    Once again, Elise shows her unwavering support for the Mueller investigation: “Russia has a track record of meddling in elections — not only ours in 2016, but around the world. I support the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller in getting to the apolitical truth.”

    July 27: Stefanik again blasts Trump’s tariff strategy.

    Does this sound like a person who believes in America First? Does Elise sound like the type of politician who will buck the left and fight for MAGA voters?

    Or does Elise sound like every other wishy-washy, spineless Republican who buckles when we need them most, and who puts their personal feelings and emotions above the wants and needs of the people whom they are supposed to represent?

    I think the answer to that question is clear.

    It’s great that Elise fought for President Trump during the impeachment sham, but not doing so would have been political suicide, as we’ve seen with Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, Romney, and others.
    Was she really some “brave soul” for doing that, or a savvy politician protecting herself?

    I’d caution you not to focus on that one issue but instead, look at Elise’s overall track record. That’s the only way you can get an accurate read on what type of leader she will be.

    It’s absolutely true that we must boot out the Never Trumpers from the party — that goes without saying — but in all honesty, they’re not our biggest problem. Never Trumpers are predictable — we always know exactly where they stand.

    The real issue we face involves the “Elise Stefanik’s of the political world. I like to call people like her “TINOS,” or “Trumpists In Name Only.”

    Those are the GOP politicians who are most dangerous. TINOS like Elise are unpredictable and dangerous to our cause because we never know if she’ll back us up or take the “Conservative High Road” and virtue signal to the left.

    The answer isn’t to keep Liz Cheney or her ilk in power. Liz needs to go, and when she does, it will mark a genuine and hard won victory for the America First movement. The real answer, however, is for the do-nothing GOP to finally address the problem of weak and feckless leadership within the party and promote elected officials who offer more than fleeting support and fake symbolic gestures.

    MAGAworld pans Stefanik

    Donald Trump’s populist base has serious issues with the New York congresswoman who’s poised to replace Rep. Liz Cheney.

    Stefanik’s office did not respond to a request for comment. But on Thursday morning, the congresswoman made an appearance on Steve Bannon’s podcast War Room to tout her most important MAGA bona fides: supporting the Arizona recount and promising to investigate false claims of election fraud. “We want transparency and answers for the American people — what are the Democrats so afraid of?” she said.

    After the interview, Bannon sang her praises, comparing her political evolution from the establishment to MAGA to that of “fire breathing populist” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.). “You’ve got Hawley in the Senate and Stefanik [in the House]. You’ve got to look at the journey,” he said.
    The interview started getting pickup among MAGA influencers soon thereafter. “Excellent job by Rep.@EliseStefanik on Steve Bannon’s War Room this morning,” Trump adviser Jason Miller tweeted that afternoon, praising her stance on the Chinese Communist Party and calling her a “massive upgrade” over Cheney.

    The backlash against Stefanik didn’t surface out of nowhere. For years, she’d been viewed with suspicion by hardcore elements of the MAGA base, with Big League politics running several pieces slamming her for her disloyalty to figures such as provocateur Laura Loomer. She criticized Trump’s decision to withdraw from the 2015 Paris climate accord and failed to pass the MAGA smell test on several key issues: immigration, border control, abortion and the war in Afghanistan.
    “She ties with a couple other Republicans for the worst career voting record on immigration in New York,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the anti-immigration Center on Immigration Studies, ticking off a few of her previous positions: a yes on H-2B visas, the Farm Workers Modernization Act, and the Hong Kong Refugee bill, and a no on Trump’s child border separation policies.

    “Obviously, Republicans in New York are likely to be more liberal, just because that's the environment they're in,” Krikorian said. “I think everybody understands that. But even by the standards of New York state Republicans, she's bad on immigration.”

    Another issue that could harm Stefanik among MAGA supporters is her record on Afghanistan. As recently as 2019, she co-sponsored a bill with Cheney to keep 10,000 troops in the region for a year and stop troop reduction — a bill that was highly controversial among anti-war MAGA voices, who had backed Trump’s talks with the Taliban at the time.

    Exclusive — National Border Patrol Council Endorses Elise Stefanik to Replace Liz Cheney as House GOP Conference Chair

    May 7, 2021

    The National Border Patrol Council is endorsing Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) to replace Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as the new House GOP conference chair, assuming Cheney goes down next week.

    “As President Biden’s policies continue to create the worst surge in illegal immigration in our history, it is more important than ever for our leaders to share a unified message in Congress on the importance of border security,” Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, said in a statement obtained exclusively by Breitbart News ahead of its public release.
    “Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is the strongest member to share and grow our message of securing our border and protecting our communities.”

    Judd continues in the five-paragraph endorsement by noting over the years he has served as the president of the National Border Patrol Council—the union that represents Border Patrol agents—he has met many lawmakers. “I have been impressed by some and underwhelmed by others,” Judd wrote. “I am happy to say Congresswoman Stefanik easily fits into the first category. She is one of the most ardent supporters of the Border Patrol’s mission as well as law enforcement generally.”

    Judd adds Stefanik’s “efforts both legislatively and behind the scenes” have helped keep “illegal drugs and dangerous criminals from flooding our communities.” He continues:

    Representative Stefanik supports funds to build the wall, technology to augment the Border Patrol’s capabilities, and more resources for the men and women on the front lines. I am truly grateful to say in the strongest possible terms that Elise opposes policies that have been so dangerous for our communities such as sanctuary cities, licenses for illegal immigrants, and public assistance for those who chose to violate our immigration laws (the magnets that draw people and encourage them to cross our borders illegally).

    She also opposes amnesty for those whose very first act in coming to the U.S. was to knowingly and willingly cross our borders illegally. Representative Stefanik has been a true border security champion.

    Judd’s endorsement of Stefanik for House GOP conference chairwoman comes in the wake of former President Donald Trump backing her as well. Judd’s statement notes the National Border Patrol Council is proud to stand with the former president in endorsing Stefanik.

    It also comes after House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy has been backing Stefanik behind the scenes making phone calls for her, and House GOP whip Steve Scalise publicly endorsed her for the job.

    House Republicans, when Congress returns next week, are likely to at Wednesday’s regularly-scheduled conference meeting, force a vote to remove Cheney as conference chair and then move to bring Stefanik into the job as her replacement.

    Stefanik has been a stalwart political ally of Trump—and was key in backing him up during him impeachment battles with congressional Democrats—but some conservatives are worried about her voting record. The Club for Growth has come out against her candidacy for conference chair, and others have raised questions about various votes she has taken.

    Politico, no friend to Republicans, on Friday morning published a missiveattempting to divide the House GOP conference by claiming that Stefanik does not have the support of people like columnist Ann Coulter, former broadcaster Lou Dobbs, and former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis.

    Many of them, per the report from Politico’s Tina Nguyen, have targeted Stefanik on immigration. But getting key endorsements like Judd’s—literally having the actual Border Patrol agents at her side—is going to make it harder for critics to claim she is not tough on immigration.

    The move is very similar to Trump’s campaign in 2016, when the Border Patrol union backed Trump in March 2016 amid his heated primary battle with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the homestretch of the nomination battle.

    What’s more, Stefanik has been aggressively courting the right in recent days.

    She appeared on Thursday on both the War Room broadcast with former Breitbart News executive chairman Steve Bannon and on Sebastian Gorka’s show on Salem Radio Networks. She will appear on Saturday on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel as well.

    We need a plan to send these 30 million illegal alien invaders back home and it must include military operations loading up SHIPS full of them.

    They are not our citizens, they are not our responsibility to house and feed nor educate and give free medical care to!
