It has finally happened and it is about damn time. Liz Cheney is finally out of her leadership position and it is so good to see that the Republicans are finally growing a set and cleaning out the party.
For too long, Liz has played both sides of the aisle as many people have claimed for years which is why I was never a fan of hers in the first place. Well, actually the second since I wasn’t a fan of her father and his warmongering ways that dragged us into endless wars in the middle east, but that is another story for another day.
So, finally, Cheney has been outed and of course, instead of leaving with any dignity, she decided to take a cheap shot at President Trump.

House Republicans on Wednesday removed Rep. Liz Cheney from her party leadership role after she urged the GOP to reject former President Donald Trump.
Cheney remained defiant, vowing to continue the fight against Trump.
“I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” Cheney told reporters after she was ousted as House GOP conference chair during a closed-door meeting.
“The party is in a place that we’ve got to bring it back from,” she said. “We cannot be dragged backward by the very dangerous lies of a former president.”

Fun watching the left have meltdown over the fact that their controlled opposition RINO Republicans like Paul Ryan, Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney are becoming more & more irrelevant by the minute & will soon be replaced by real patriots. The grassroots revolt is 10X the Tea Party

The New York Post relayed some more of Cheney’s words:
“You can’t have a conference chair who recites Democrat talking points,” he said.
Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) offered the motion to remove Cheney, which passed via voice vote — a move leaders said was chosen to “show unity” instead of a secret-ballot recorded vote.
Ahead of the vote, Cheney laid out her reasoning for not backing down from her position.
“I have tremendous affection and admiration for many of you in this room. I know we all came to Washington to do important work for the nation. History has chosen every single one of us. And history has put us here together at this moment of challenge for our country,” she addressed the Republican conference.
Our nation needs this Republican Party as a strong party based on truth so we can shape the future,” she said. To do that, we must be true to our principles and to the constitution. We cannot let the former president drag us backward and make us complicit in his efforts to unravel our democracy. Down that path lies our destruction, and potentially the destruction of our country.
