Liz Cheney, cat herder

    We've all watched those old Westers where brave cowboys drove herds of cattle hundreds of miles, in adverse conditions, to reach their final destination.

    In many parts of the U.K., a solitary dog can steer a flock of sheep back to the pasture they came from.

    We own a cat. If you've ever owned a cat, you know that they are going to whatever they want to do, whenever they want to do it. Anyone who thinks they could control the direction of a herd of cats is sadly mistaken.

    Derek Hunter, one of the crazy people on Townhall.com, has criticized Lis Cheney for this reason:

    "Her failure is not because she doesn’t like Donald Trump, that is the least important part of this whole drama, but because she can’t do the job. Her job is to hold the caucus together and advance the Republican agenda. She can’t do it, and it’s all her fault."

    Here are two of the people that Liz is supposed to control:

    Hunter also criticized her "failing to advance the Republican agenda". If you are paying attention, the only real political agenda is to oppose everything that Joe Biden is trying to do. That's not an agenda. That's anarchy.

    Yes sorry to say this is the absolute truth. This country is actually ungovernable because of it. As long as no one does anything about "who" we sent to Washington; certainly if there is no pre-qualification check on the person running, forget this country. Every idiot can solicit for the job as has been proven. As I've written so many times that in other civil countries, idiots like these don't last very long, but here it seems ( due to the just about un-limited speech) they can stay forever, if the dumb State's (they come from) re-elects them over and over again. It just shows that this country has no norms or an solid education and piss poor incomplete laws with huge "loopholes".

    It is time as history has shown that "candidates" should have the same solid screening as for any other "civil" job. But yeah if you just select "gun toting cowboys" then the result should be known.

    Democrats better keep close eye on Liz Chaney, she could break the Trump hold on the Republican party and then become his replacement. She is standing her ground against worst MF pollical bully in modern times. She won't suck his dick under any circumstances, and refuses to compromise or spin the fact that Donald Trump is cancer for the republican party. He is the emperor without any clothes. All American voters, regardless of their politics, like her type of very strong ethical character, and the Republican party loves that type of leader.

    If she wins this battle with Donald Trump, she very likely will go on to become the republican candidate in 2024. Her republican haters such as Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz, etc, will flip to her side just as they did for Donald Trump. They are loyal to who has the power to control the base, and if she can win that control from Donald Trump, she win the loyalty of all those who have been sucking Trump's dick for the past 5 year, but refused to do so before he had the power.

    wwjd, again right on. However like you said, if the "obstructionists" stay , then even if she gets her way, they may not change at all. It is "baked" in by people like Cruz and lots of others to "obstruct" and keep following the Trump doctrine.

    The real war within the Republican party very simple. Traditional conservative concepts(Chaney Wing) vs Politics of misinformation (Trump Wing). Chaney wants conservative values and concepts to be the driving force behind the Republican party, and the Trump Wing wants to embrace Trumps methods and tactics to define the political agenda. Putting this into a Trump tweet: "tap into the hate, fear, and distrust of Americans to define the political agenda of the Republican party, then use misinformation to control Americans perception of reality. Truth and facts are only relevant when they support the Republican agenda, otherwise all other factual information is the enemy the Republican party"

    Anyone who challenges the Republican party as led by Donald Trump, is an enemy. You either support Donald Trump 100%, or you're his enemy. In Trump World, you are willing to suck his dick, anytime, anywhere, or you don't. There is no compromise.

    Yes you see it correctly; I've nothing to add. Except that this country has become la la land.

    She is REALLY a smart lady, and this is what she had to say about Liz Cheney this morning.

    "In 1975, a quote in The Oak and the Calf carried a warning from one of the most profound thinkers of the era. "In our country," Russian writer and historian Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said, "the lie has become not just a moral category, but a pillar of the state."

    It gave me great pause until, now, I myself have seen the truth of it.

    Here.

    "The fact that one of the oldest political parties in the United States has purged a member — a leader of the party, to be exact — for telling the truth. The truth. Not for telling a lie. For telling the truth."

    "Nah?"

    "You heard me. That's what can't be true."

    Because if it is true, who do they think is harmed by it? Liz Cheney? Get real. Liz Cheney is right up there with George Washington now. Any child who ever heard of George Washington has known that we need someone to remind us that truth — trustworthiness — is an essential component of leadership for a good long time now.

    No, in the end it will not be Cheney who suffers from this debacle. The people who will be harmed are the people who did it. One hundred and forty-seven Republicans voted to expel Cheney from her leadership role for admitting that President Joe Biden won the election, not Donald Trump. Eighty percent of Republicans, the polls say, agree with Cheney's purge for telling that truth. So it's their lie now; not simply Trump's. It belongs to the people who are denying us the integrity we're looking for, and because of whom we know without a doubt now that we can't expect any integrity from them either.

    In Germany, the "Big Lie" was "Jews? What Jews? We didn't do anything to the Jews."

    In the United States now the "Big Lie" is "Lose? No, Donald Trump didn't lose the election. It was stolen from him." (At least he thinks it was. Maybe.) But as long as we silently accept his big lie, as long as we do nothing to expose it, he will see that the people he lied to about it keep voting its carriers into office.

    The leadership in this party has abandoned honor and honesty for the sake of dishonest gains for personal profit.

    It tells us that thanks to partisanship — the-do-it-our-way-or-we'll-purge-you-crowd — we have created ourselves a Congress that has no conscience and leaders that allow no conscience to operate.

    It tells us that the loss of leadership that emerges is a partisan ploy to get more power rather than to produce new ideas in a creative country and is nothing more than an intellectual firing squad that robs the poor of their votes and bows to the powerful for its personal gain. So goes democracy when the people are not watching.

    One voice cries out to us from the past to remember:

    "I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed but I am bound to live the best life that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right and part from him when he goes wrong."

    And who said that? It has been attributed to Abraham Lincoln. Cheney is in good Republican company here.

    We now live in times that "words" alone don't matter; in the past you had respect for the truth; nowadays it is wrapped in all kind of commercial shit, so you don't see the trees in the jungle but just only the monkeys.

    Like I've said before, the path on which this country is now will lead to nowhere; the S.American mentality is here to stay.

    Lincoln is now just an "car" nothing else.

    Amen

    Liz Cheney was replaced by congresswoman Elise Stefanik because Stefanik strongly supports Trump.

    The email that she just sent out proves that she has joined the crazy people in the Republican Party:

    ***************************************************

    Joe Biden’s decision to continue pushing Radical Left policies is a sad disgrace.

    His failed administration has forced the American people to suffer through an energy crisis, border crisis, national security crisis, AND inflation crisis. What’s even worse is that he’s doubling down on these failures by refusing to work with Republicans to fix the problems.

    (Editor's note: this last sentence tells us that Stefanik does not understand the word "ironic")

    The Liberal News Media will never hold Joe Biden accountable, which is why I’m asking for your help in putting together The Official Biden Report Card.

    RESPONSE FROM THOMAS STATUS: PENDING

    Biden Report Card
    How would you grade Joe Biden’s job performance?
