The “common ground” about which Chris Wallace speaks is Trump Derangement Syndrome so profound Liz Cheney–Former R, WY– has embraced the very socialists and communists who called her father a war criminal and murderer.  Wyomingites remain unimpressed, so unimpressed, they’ve disowned her, as Newsmax.com reports:

The Wyoming Republican Party will no longer recognize Liz Cheney as a member of the GOP in its second formal rebuke for her criticism of former President Donald Trump.

The 31-29 weekend vote by the state party central committee followed votes by local GOP officials in about one-third of Wyoming’s 23 counties to no longer recognize Cheney as a Republican.

In February, the Wyoming GOP central committee voted overwhelmingly to censure Cheney, Wyoming’s lone U.S. representative, for voting to impeach Trump for his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

It’s little known the Wyoming Republican Party has sent Cheney many requests to explain her votes and statements.  She has ignored them all and is staying as far away from Wyoming as possible.  Powerline’s resident sort of leftist, Paul Mirengoff, begs to differ with the Wyoming Republican Party:

It’s not Cheney’s obsession with Trump that the Wyoming GOP objects to. It’s that she has ‘the wrong line’ on Trump and on the events of January 6 (which the Wyoming GOP resolution manages to blame on BLM and Antifa), to use another phrase associated with the sectarian left.

I believe there is a basis for Cheney’s concerns about Trump. However, I also believe she overstates them, significantly so at times.

But publicly articulated and acted-upon disgust with one Republican politician, however influential he is, should never cause the state branch of that party to do what the Wyoming GOP has done to Cheney. When it does, that’s a bad sign.

Mirengoff comes perilously close to supporting the D/S/C narrative on these issues. Speaking as a well-informed Wyomingite, our disagreement with Cheney is not based in any irrational love for Donald Trump, but over her making common cause with D/S/Cs intent on damaging one man to the detriment of the truth, the Constitution and the country.  Oh, and she’s not representing the wishes of Wyoming voters either, as though that mattered to Beltway politicians these days.  Rational Americans recognize the conclusions of the commission she co-chairs were written before its first meeting.  They have no intention of getting to the truth of January 6th, and if they did, they have everything they need to know already, particularly thousands of hours of video of the actual events they refuse to make public.

Were they truly concerned about the Constitution, they would be demanding the release of Americans locked up without trial in the squalid DC Jail.  They would demand a real investigation of the murder of Ashley Babbitt, and of why Nancy Pelosi refused to call out the Guard, and why the Capitol Police were so woefully understaffed and unprepared on January 6.

Wyomingites appreciate Donald Trump for what he did for our nation, and most specifically, because unlike so many other Presidents, he actually put America first in thought, word and deed.  They know he’s no longer president. Virtually all would be fine if he’s not the Republican candidate in 2024, but they surely want a president who believes in and acts for America as he did.  Oh, and every political party has the power to eject who it pleases, particularly if such people are elected representatives.  The effect of such a vote is to clearly express displeasure with that representative, which is entirely appropriate, though it should not be taken lightly, just as House Republicans did not take it lightly when they ejected Cheney from the leadership of the House.

Cheney, who knows what Wyomingites think of her, and what that means for her reelection in 2022, is not exactly trying to convince them they’re wrong about her:

Democrat-aligned Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Rep. John Katko (R-NY) on Monday celebrated being publicly called ‘RINOs.’

According to a Bloomberg reporter, Cheney and Katko passed one another outside the House chamber. Cheney shouted at Katko, ‘Hey, it’s the RINO!’

‘Takes one to know one,’ Katko replied, acknowledging their political opposition to American First Republicanism.

Knowing how low her Wyoming support is, Cheney just can’t shut up:

Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) said on this week’s broadcast of ‘Fox News Sunday’ that spreading the lie that the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol was a false flag operation is ‘un-American.’

Anchor Chris Wallace said, ‘We’ve always argued about policy. What strikes me as was different now but not just now but in recent years is that we argue over facts. We argue over the truth. Congresswoman Cheney, there is talk now that January 6 was a false flag operation. It was a case of liberals in the deep state setting up conservatives and Trump supporters. Is there any truth to that?’

Actually, there is more than sufficient evidence to suspect that.

Cheney said, ‘None at all. It’s the same thing that you hear people saying 9/11 is an inside job. It’s un-American to be spreading those kinds of lies, and they are lies.’

She added, ‘We have an obligation that goes beyond partisanship and an obligation that we share, Democrats and Republicans together, to make sure that we understand every single piece of the facts about what happened that day. We need to make sure that the people who did are held accountable. To call it a false flag application and spread those lies is dangerous.’

Uh-huh.  And she knows this because the Committee has completed its investigation and knows everything about what happened?  If so, why is it issuing subpoenas?  As to going “beyond partisanship,” let us remember it was Nancy Pelosi who violated House rules and practices by refusing to seat Republicans chosen by Republican leadership on the Committee.  Was Cheney’s willingness to be a D/S/C rubber stamp against America’s interests non-partisan?  In the same interview, she went even farther:

Anchor Chris Wallace said, ‘Congresswoman Cheney, I suspect one of the reasons you were being honored is because you spoke out against President Trump after the insurrection because you are one of the few Republicans willing to join the January 6th Committee, the committee investigating what happened. The flip side of that is that you lost your leadership position among House Republicans, you face a tough primary challenge in your state Wyoming this next year. Why wouldn’t members of both parties look at your example and state that is the last thing I want to do?’

Cheney said, ‘I fundamentally believe, Chris, at the end of the day, the success of this country in the future and the security of our constitutional underpinnings require that there is a recognition sometimes when you do have to say partisanship has to be put aside. I think that we have to have two strong parties in this country. I think that the only way the Republican Party can go forward in strength is if we reject the lie. If we reject what happened on January 6th, if we reject the efforts at President Trump made it to, frankly, steal the election. If we tell voters the truth and if we present ourselves to voters based on substance.’

And Mr. Trump tried to steal the election how, exactly?  By exposing electoral fraud?  By encouraging Americans to peacefully protest?  By willingly vacating the White House and peacefully transferring power?  Subsequent investigations, many of which are ongoing, have exposed electoral irregularities and outright fraud sufficient to potentially have overturned the election.  Lies?  Denying that.

Rather than Wyoming, where is Cheney visiting?

Liz Cheney went to New Hampshire as the Deep State rallies round someone with Deep State loyalties to stop President Donald John Trump’s re-election.

AT&T (CNN) reported, ‘With Cheney’s future at home in Wyoming up in the air thanks to a fierce Trump-backed primary challenge, her trip to New Hampshire indicates she’s thinking bigger.’

In New Hampshire she told a luncheon of elitists, ‘We are confronting a domestic threat that we have never faced before: A former president who is attempting to unravel the foundations of our constitutional republic, aided by political leaders who have made themselves willing hostages to this … irrational man.’

And how, exactly is Trump destroying the Republic?  By exercising free speech?  Endorsing political candidates?  Were there evidence Mr. Trump was actually doing anything illegal, one can be certain Cheney and her D/S/C pals would be screaming it from the rooftops and the FBI would be making arrests, accompanied at 0400 by CNN camera crews who just happened to be in the area.

She was talking about Trump. How I wish he really were an authoritarian who would have locked up the whole CIA crew. The January 6 protest set the precedent for locking up political opponents in America. Have fun with that Democrats and RINOs.

One can only hope that when—and if—Republicans once again have power, they’ll use it against America’s internal enemies, people who have been, and are, breaking the law, unlike D/S/Cs who pursue Americans who aren’t breaking the law.

Cheney’s yammering about coups is all projection. And her bitching about Donald Trump is political convenience. Before the 2020 election, she supported him. She had to. He was more popular in Wyoming than the Cheneys.

There is evidence Cheney is using her position on the January 6 Committee to attack political enemies in Wyoming.  She’s learning well from her D/S/C comrades:

The Cheney family, writ large, are a big part of the disturbing underbelly of U.S. politics who maintain a very corrupt system.  Congressional Representative Liz Cheney (Wyoming) has learned the dark arts of DeceptiCon politics through her family connection and influence.

In the latest deployment of her black-art politics, Liz Cheney has used her position as a J6 committee member to subpoena Bill Stepien, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager {link}.  Bill Stepien is also the current political advisor/campaign manager of Wyoming congressional candidate Harriet Hageman {website here}  President Trump has endorsed Harriet Hageman in the quest to unseat and remove Liz Cheney in the GOP Primary {link}.

In essence, Liz Cheney is using her Pelosi-aligned position on the J6 Committee to target her opponent in the GOP primary.   Retaining power at all costs is just the way the swamp works.  From the perspective of Cheney Inc., the MAGA base is just a bunch of rubes that need to be ruled and occasionally culled.

In case you wondered if Cheney’s Committee had any purpose beyond getting Donald Trump:

 Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., announced Thursday the House Jan. 6 panel intends to hold public hearings in 2022, detailing ‘in vivid color’ the events that day, including what occurred within former President Donald Trump’s White House, CNBC reported.

Cheney, the vice chair of the select committee and one of its two Republican members, said the panel aims to conduct ‘multiple weeks of public hearings’ sometime next year, when the GOP hopes to retake majority control of at least one chamber of Congress.

The hearings will lay out ‘exactly what happened every minute of the day on Jan. 6 here at the Capitol and at the White House and what led to that violent attack,’ Cheney said in a House Rules Committee hearing, CNBC reported.

And I’m sure they already have the script written.  What’s the other purpose?  There are surely many, but they obviously intend to produce prime time propaganda to try to save themselves in the 2022 mid term elections, while simultaneously trying to prevent Donald Trump from being re-elected should he choose to run again.

Wyoming is a free state.  Masks are rare, social distancing nonexistent, schools in session and businesses open. This is a sign Liz Cheney doesn’t give a damn what Wyoming voters think:

Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney voted to fund the enlargement of a federal database that would track COVID-19 vaccine doses administered to private citizens and allow the federal government to contact citizens to encourage them to receive a shot.  The Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act provides $400 million in taxpayer funding to expand the power of the government to track individual vaccinations and identify geographic areas were vaccine rates are low. The legislation also creates channels for state and local health departments, in addition to private and public healthcare facilities, to forward their own data to the federal government.

Cheney voted for the bill, with every Democrat and a minority of Republicans, which now will be considered by the Senate.

Senator Ted Cruz epitomizes the aphorism: “Don’t mess with Texas.”

Cruz is far more popular in Wyoming than Cheney, and Wyomingites are very, very tired of her “I am the Constitution!” act.

Not a good idea, Liz.

How unpopular?  This unpopular:

According to the poll, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the face of the ten Republican defectors who voted to impeach Trump over the January 6 Capitol riot, is trailing the Trump-backed candidate, attorney Harriet Hageman, by double digits in Wyoming.

The poll shows Hageman well ahead of Cheney, 38.6 percent to 18.8 percent, providing one of the first glimpses into whether voters intend to hold Cheney accountable for bucking the Republican Party and voting for Trump’s impeachment. 26.6 percent of respondents said they remain undecided.

Final Thoughts:  To find all SMM writings on Liz Cheney, merely enter her name into the SMM home page search bar.  As I’ve often said, Republicans/Normal Americans don’t think politicians saviors.  That’s a D/S/C obsession, which is easily understood.  Normal Americans want government to leave them alone.  D/S/Cs think government  salvation itself.

Accordingly, whatever appreciation Normal Americans have for Donald Trump is due to his fidelity to and support for America.  They would feel the same way about any politician who actually kept America first, who actually upheld the Constitution and supported the policies Trump supported.  Do they want a second Trump term?  Not necessarily.  They absolutely want someone like Trump who will act in America’s interests, and 2024 is a long way away.

Liz Cheney is polling so poorly because she has demonstrated she doesn’t want those things, and she does not, in fact, support the Constitution.  Most of all, she absolutely does not represent the political beliefs and the personal values of Wyomingites.  If she did, she might occasionally set foot in the state.  Wyomingites would rather she didn’t, and they’re going to deliver that message in unmistakable terms in November of 2022.
