    Liz Cheney voted out of leadership role by House GOP

    Liz Cheney voted out of leadership role by House GOP


    The House GOP gathered for a secret vote on Wednesday to remove Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney from her leadership position as the chair of the House Republican Conference.

    The move is a victory for Rep. Matt Gaetz and his pro-Trump allies, who have been campaigning against Cheney and her direction for the GOP since January. At the time, Gaetz went to Cheney's home state and spoke to her constituents about her leadership failures.

    Gaetz told an assembled crowd that they should "Defeat Liz Cheney in this upcoming election and Wyoming will bring Washington to its knees. How can you call yourself a representative when you don't represent the will of the people?"

    The closed-door meeting came only hours after Cheney gave a speech on the House floor saying that she would "not sit back and watch in silence while others lead our party down a path that abandons the rule of law."


    Cheney has been touted as a hero in the eyes of the mainstream press for holding her colleagues' feet to the proverbial fire, but for GOP Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, Cheney has been a problem for leadership since January.
    Speaking to The Post Millennial, Gaetz said that "Rep. Cheney's record doesn't stand with the party. This is a party that wants to stop endless wars, wants an immigration and economic policy that supports the America First agenda. This is a party that gave President Trump over 90 percent of their vote, and she made it her personal mission to fight against him, support the left-wing media’s narratives, and spit in the eye of every Republican who voted for him and supported his agenda."

    She was one of 10 Republicans who voted for the impeachment of Donald Trump as he exited the White House, on charges of "incitement of insurrection" after the Capitol riot which cost Trump supporter Ashli Babbit her life at the hands of the Capitol Hill Police. Cheney blamed Trump fully, including for the death of five people, four of whom died from medical incidents, saying that Trump "summoned," "assembled" and "lit the flame of this attack."


    Cheney's take is that former President Trump was responsible for the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, and that the country faced a threat "never seen before" as Trump continues to tell the story that the 2020 election was "stolen from him." Republicans didn't sit in the House for Cheney's rebuke, leaving near the top of her speech.

    While President Biden and the Democrats continue to say that the GOP is having an identity crisis, evidenced by Cheney's ouster, Gaetz tells The Post Millennial that the GOP is actually rather united. Cheney's ouster evidences that unity.
    "Our party is more united now than it has been in some time," Gaetz said. "We have a blueprint of how to reach the largest numbers of voters in history. Supporting sensible policies on immigration, trade, big tech, woke capital, and foreign policy should be the staple of our party. In all decision making, we should look at what’s in the best interest of the least among us. The hardworking Americans building a life for themselves and their families. We are the party of the worker, the patriot, and the silent majority who still believes that this is the last best hope."


    The New York Times reports that Cheney's removal reflects "the party's intolerance for dissent and unswerving fealty to the former president." CNN and other left-leaning media outlets used this to say that the GOP is having an identity crisis. But this is more about their desire for the GOP to have an identity crisis than what is actually happening.

    Lawmakers in the GOP have defined what they want the party to stand for, and Cheney's incessant diatribes about the former president and his influence have done little to move the party forward. As she continues to say that the party should not "let the former president drag us backward," she continues to live in the past.

    New York Rep. Elise Stefanik is set to take Cheney's place as chair of the House Republican Conference.

    Good riddance, but really, who cares? The replacement Stefanik is not much better.

    This sort of reminds me of the recall against Gov. Newsom here in California. The front runner appears to be Kaitlen Jenner, a transgender male with similar illegal immigration sympathies.

    The whole campaign for "rino's" or "Trumpers" is just a cover for the dying Two Party System and the rise of voters who disavow party affiliation.

    End the Two Party System. Make it a federal crime to ask for party affiliation when registering voters and keeping government records of same. How else was the election stolen from Trump? Party affiliation records made it all possible. Notice how it is the one thing nobody is talking about.

    I agree. It has become "US vs. THEM" and constant fighting back and forth. They pit the citizens against each other with constant lies and it is not a level playing field.

    Good policies get established then the "other side" comes in and obliterates them! Biden is a wrecking ball.

    This is not good for this country any more.

    All names should be on the ticket and you vote for who you want. Whittle it down to two choices for President and two choices for VP. Same at State and Local levels.

    We are now voting for the "lesser of two evils".

    There are some good Democrats...why can't we just vote for the best and end this 2 party swamp?

    Term Limits

    No Lobbyist Money

    Cap on donations

    No secret service and benefits for life. These rats get rich off of our suffering in office and out of office.

    Limits on their transportation and travel budget using our tax dollars.

    They can have their own 401(k) and the Affordable Healthcare crap they vote for!

    Budget in on time or NO pay and line item veto the pork.

    We are sick of this. They are destroying our country, our lives, our peace and our prosperity.

    This is not a damn football game!
