Republican Reps who Voted to Impeach Trump Face ‘Barrage’ of Pro-Trump Primary Challengers

Liz Cheney

Republican politicians who sided with Democrats to impeach former President Donald Trump over the January 6th attack on the United States Capitol are feeling the repercussions on the campaign trail. Nine of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump are “already facing primary challenges – and some of them may have a very hard time holding on to their seats” reports Fox News.

During his speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) conference in February, Trump delivered a fiery message: “Get rid of them all” he said of the Republicans who voted to impeach him. “Instead of attacking me and, more importantly, the voters of our movement, top establishment Republicans in Washington should be spending their energy in opposing Biden, Pelosi, Schumer and the Democrats.”

Perhaps the most high-profile Republican spat against President Trump was with former vice president Dick Cheney’s daughter and Wyoming Representative, Liz Cheney. Liz Cheney was the House Republican conference chair when she voted to impeach Trump. Cheney had a long-standing history of criticism against Trump.

After the impeachment vote, Cheney was “eventually deposed from her leadership post but still faces a horde of at least eight primary challengers aiming to remove her from office” reports Fox News. Wyoming State Senator Anthony Bouchard says he has surpassed over $500,000 fundraising against Cheney.

Other Republican candidates in the fight for their seat against Trump allies are Rep. Tom Rice of South Carolina, Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington, Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Rep. Dan Newhouse of Washington, Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio, Rep. Fred Upton from Michigan, Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan and Rep. David Valadao of California. Representative John Katko of New York also voted with Democrats to impeach Trump but does not yet have an announced primary challenger.

    I am from South Carolina and am hoping that Tom Rice will be removed. He is nothing but a RINO in my opinion as are the others on this list. They are weak. They are not working for the goof of their constituents but rather for the global community. When we can get a party that has the same mindset, then and only then will we see a party that can stand against the liberal idiots on the left.

    Liz, was the Left’s Piñata & has now become the Right’s, for her Hatred of our President. Of course, she has animosity against Trump, who, Rightly stated that her Old Man was a, “Backstabbing Traitor” who sold out his, “Country & Fellow Captives”, to live in Comfort while a Captive/Guest at the Hanoi Hilton. Like her Old Man, Liz (being the dyke she is) don’t fall far from the Tree. She’s a Worthless, Socialist, preparing to (or already has) Surrendered to the Left. What a Peach.

Portland Reaches Record Homicides Amid Law Enforcement Budget Cuts, ‘We Are Running on Fumes’

Published

on

Portland Police

The brother-in-law of Jacob Eli Knight Vasquez who was murdered by a stray bullet on Friday is begging Oregon’s leadership to “please untie the hands of our law enforcement officers.” Vasquez, 34, was at a pizza bar in the thriving dining scene of northwest Portland, then headed to a bar to get a drink across the street from the tavern where he worked when shots rang out and he was struck by a stray bullet and died at the scene.

Portland police have suffered from budget cuts and are struggling with a force of 128 officers below its authorized strength, despite the rapid increase of crime in the area. “Since August 2020, about 200 officers have left the department” reports the Associated Press. Exit interviews “cited low morale, lack of support from city officials and burnout from months of racial justice protests.”

Vasquez’s brother-in-law Don Osborn echoes the sentiments of many in liberal cities that have actively castrated their law enforcement departments. “I believe if the proper tools were in place for our law enforcement officers, this wouldn’t even have happened,” he said.

The AP writes Vasquez’s murder “in late September was one of the 67 homicides this year in Portland, which has surpassed its previous full-year record of 66 in 1987. And with more than two months remaining in the year, Portland will likely shatter its previous high mark.”

So far in 2021, Portland has experienced over 1,000 shootings. “At least 314 people have been injured by bullets, and firearms have accounted for three-quarters of homicides. Police also attribute much of the gunfire to gangs, fights and retaliation killings, but they are also affecting bystanders.”

“In a metropolis wracked by gang violence, fear and frustration have settled over Portland as stories like Vasquez’s make some wary to go out at night” reports the AP. “Unlike previous years” now innocent people unrelated to gangs are being murdered – “from people mourning at vigils and sitting in cars to children playing in a park.”

Daryl Turner, executive director of Portland’s police union says the city needs to hire 840 officers in the next five years. “We are running on fumes. There’s no way we can investigate thoroughly, and correctly, all these shootings.”

Turner said the increase in violence is related directly to the budget cuts. City leaders slashed $27 million from the police budget last year. $11 million due to the pandemic-caused budget crisis, “a decision that Turner says has cost lives.”

Stacey Abrams Again Claims 2018 Election Was Stolen From Her

Published

Stacey Abrams

Stacey Abrams, who lost her campaign for Georgia governor in 2018 by more than 55,000 votes, suggested that she actually won the election – a false claim she has been making for the last three years.

Abrams made the claim while campaigning for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, who has notoriously claimed for decades that former President Bush actually lost the 2000 presidential election.

“Just because you win doesn’t mean you won,” Abrams said. “We’ve got folks who are ready to take back what they think is theirs, but they are not entitled to our progress. They are not entitled to our justice. They are not entitled to our vote.”

“I come from a state where I was not entitled to become the governor, but as an American citizen and a citizen of Georgia, I’m going to fight for every person who has the right to vote to be able to cast that vote,” she added.

Last week, McAuliffe was asked by CNN’s Dana Bash about claims he has repeatedly made that Democrats “actually won the” 2020 presidential election.
Bash played clips of McAuliffe saying, “Folks, you know it. I know it. They know it. We won that election!” And “We actually won the last presidential election, folks. They stole the last presidential election.”

Bash then asked, “Do you think Republicans stole that election?”

“I wish the United States Supreme Court had let them finish counting the votes,” McAuliffe responded.

McAuliffe has also notoriously embraced the Russia-hoax, claiming that Hillary Clinton did not win the 2016 presidential election because of “treasonous” Americans and Russians were “destabilizing our democracy.”
