When it comes to Liz Cheney, it has been since the first day she first arrived in Congress, back in 2017, that several things should have by now become painfully obvious, even to the folks back home. First and foremost is the fact that she is very clearly another of those who we commonly referred to as a Republican-In-Name-Only, otherwise known as a RINO. And as such it is also now very obvious that she is in up to her neck in ‘The Swamp.’ And it has always been very clear that she has some sort of vendetta against the man who, as president, demonstrated a great love for his country and a desire to make it a better place for ALL who live here.
During an appearance on Tuesday on CNN’s “The Lead,” hosted by Jake Tapper, it was Cheney who said she believed Republicans denying the severity of the January 6 Capitol riot and former President Trump’s responsibility in it were “shameful.” Tapper said, “One of the things I find so troubling about all of this is you and Adam Kinzinger, and others are saying that they tried to steal the election, these MAGA forces tried to steal the election once, and they’re going to try again. And we don’t hear Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise say, ‘no, no, no, we would never do that again.’ There is zero attempts at reassuring people that what you are suggesting is not true.”
Cheney said, “Look, in some ways, I think it’s actually even worse than that, Jake. I think that we’re in a situation where the people that you mentioned seem to view this as some sort of a partisan political game. And as every American who watched saw this morning, this is really deadly serious. And as the chairman said, we didn’t have a peaceful transfer of power. We had an insurrection. Today you had Republican members of Congress actually protesting in front of the Justice Department on behalf of the people who were here and who had been arrested because they participated in the riot and in the insurrection. That’s a stunning and indefensible turn of events.”
Tapper said, “That was going on, on one end of Washington. On the other end on Capitol Hill, the strategy from House Republican leaders McCarthy, Scalise, Stefanik was to counter the committee hearing with their press conference where their basic message was Speaker Pelosi is to blame.” And after playing a video from the press conference, Tapper asked, “What’s your reaction when you hear them try to blame Pelosi for an insurrection incited and inspired and even directed in some ways by Donald Trump?” Cheney said, “If I were saying the things that you just played, I’d be deeply ashamed of myself. What happened is absolutely clear.”
Cheney then went on to say, “We had, as we heard this morning, just intolerable cruelty, a mob that was assembled by President Trump, was provoked by him. He lit the flame for what happened. We’ve seen that not just in the speech on the ellipse but throughout. What this committee needs to understand is exactly what the details were of the planning and the financing. But for anybody to be suggesting that somehow he wasn’t responsible, I think it’s shameful.” And then she added, “I think Leader McCarthy is continuing to demonstrate that he views this as some sort of a political game. It’s not a game, and it’s deadly serious.”
Cheney concluded, “If we accept what happened on January 6th, if we accept what people, my colleagues are saying that we should somehow look at this as a bunch of tourists, they are trying to whitewash it, ignore it. If we go down that path, then we really are abandoning the rule of law, and we are abandoning what is one of the most fundamental elements of our republic, which is the peaceful transfer of power. I know that there are millions of people around this country who won’t let that happen, who will stand up and do what’s right and reaffirm our commitment to our constitution.” So are we to believe she’s committed to our Constitution? Seriously?
First elected in 2016 it was nearly right out of the gate that Cheney made it known that she was not much of a fan of the new Republican President and it was soon after that that things only proceeded to go further downhill from there. To the point where she has recently been called out as being nothing more than a ‘Pelosi Republican,’ a moniker that she both rightly deserves and is rather fitting. And it was just yesterday that I’m quite sure that Cheney made the folks back more than a little proud when she chose to once again get on her little soapbox in typical Liz Cheney fashion and left absolutely no doubt about which side it is that she’s truly on.
You see it was on the same day that Cheney appeared with Tapper, that she essentially dropped all pretense of who, and what, she really is by choosing to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Democrats and against the American people. She did so by issuing what was a rather nauseating rant from her seat there on Pelosi’s hastily assembled ‘bipartisan’ kangaroo court, the purpose of which, or so we are told, is to ‘investigate’ the events of January 6. Personally, to me it sounded much more like she was perhaps auditioning for a gig on either CNN or perhaps MSDNC. This woman is worse than any Democrat. She is nothing more than a backstabbing traitor.
For Pete’s sake, cry me a river. Democrats and the ‘fake news’ media, but I repeat myself, only call it insurrection when it goes against their interests. When Minneapolis was burning, when Portland was hosting riots for 100 straight nights, when police officers were getting attacked all over the country last summer, Democrats and the media called it “mostly peaceful” and chalked it up to justifiable outrage over the George Floyd killing. So I think it’s hilarious that the dainty Democrats and their RINO and media allies suddenly decided to care about rowdy citizen protests when it was their own election fraud on the line and their own ivory towers getting shook.
So go for it, kiddies. Take your best shot. But out here in real America, nobody gives a flying fart about your latest pathetic attempt to sling mud at President Trump and the millions of us who continue to support him and will gladly vote for him again 2024. Look, ANY Republican who will attack other Republicans is going to be pretty popular on CNN, MSNDC or anywhere else out in the world of ‘fake news.’ We are all quite familiar with who they are. Folks with names Kasich, Romney, Portman, Cassidy to name just a few of those RINOs who are routinely welcomed on any leftist ‘news’ show whenever in need of a ‘Republican’ eager to slam his, or her, own party.
First, this was not an insurrection, because no government business was actually taking place. The ‘certification’ of the Electoral College vote is a ceremonial function. You can’t grab the vote box and run out screaming, “I’m in charge now!” Second, when 30,000 members of the teacher’s union and their associated useful idiots descended on the state house in Madison, Wisconsin blocking legislators from doing their job Democrats were totally fine with that. Apparently, that’s not an insurrection. And when BLM riots killed dozens of people and caused billions of dollars in damages what did the Democrats do other than to give these people a pass?
Look, the Democrats, those in the ‘fake news’ business and those who choose to support both, can continue to pretend, until the cows come home, these protesters on January 6 were there for an insurrection but, in reality, the logic just doesn’t support their many claims. But Cheney and the Democrats have no interest in logic, but in portraying the events of January 6 as only they saw them. And they have convinced themselves that if they can only repeat the lie long enough and with the support of their many friends in the ‘fake news’ media they will eventually succeed in convincing enough Americans that their version of events is the correct one.
