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.

Biden ‘allies’ concerned with Hollywood lawyer’s ‘aggressive public defense of Hunter Biden’

Published

Hunter Biden

Hunter Biden’s Hollywood attorney buddy Kevin Morris is reportedly upsetting President Joe Biden’s “allies” with his very public defense plan for Hunter. Among the defenses is a plan to question the validity of, and story behind, the New York Post’s exclusive 2020 story on Hunter’s laptop found at a Delaware repair shop.

Another issue of concern, according to a New York Times report, is that Morris gave Hunter a loan totaling over $2 million to pay off his tax debts and take care of his living expenses. “It potentially echoes the cash he received while serving on the board of a Ukrainian oligarch’s company and pursuing deals with a Chinese tycoon, the Times said.”

But President Biden’s supporters want his scandalous son to stay out of the public eye and avoid going to trial. Morris’ tactics, however, are making a big splash. For one, he was recently accused of “spying” on filmmakers who are making an independent movie “My Son Hunter.” The movie allegedly paints an unflattering portrait of the Biden family.

The Times said Morris may try to use footage he shot on the movie’s set located in Serbia to try and “undermine” the film and the laptop. Another potential issue for the Bidens is how Morris came to  be in possession of Hunter’s controversial artwork.

Morris is rumored to be an art collector, and according to one source, Morris might have received Hunter’s art as a gift. The Times cited two people familiar with the story.

Everything is exacerbating the scrutiny the White House has already been under, when it comes to Hunter’s scandals. Hunter and Morris met at a fundraiser for then-candidate Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.

Oklahoma Governor Signs Bill Banning Nonbinary On Birth Certificates

Published

on

On Tuesday, Republican Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill banning the use of nonbinary as a gender option on state birth certificates.

The new law, SB 1100, requires all birth certificates in the state to only allow male or female as gender options.

The law says that it “requires the biological sex designation on a birth certificate to be either male or female and prohibits a nonbinary or any symbol representing a nonbinary designation including the letter ‘X’ beginning on the effective date of this act. The measure declares an emergency.”

“People are free to believe whatever they want about their identity, but science has determined people are either biologically male or female at birth,” said Oklahoma Rep. Sheila Dills, the House sponsor of the bill, in a statement. “We want clarity and truth on official state documents. Information should be based on established medical fact and not an ever-changing social dialogue.”

“As the war on common sense continues, we must stand up and put a stop to this nonsense regarding biological sex,” said Michael Bergstrom, R-Adair, the principal author of the bill. “It’s not a complicated issue – biologically, you’re either a male or female. There should be no other option to choose from on a birth certificate. I’m thankful my colleagues in the House of Representatives also saw the need to stand behind science and approve this measure.”

Stitt’s signing of the bill comes after he signed an executive order in November 2021 directing the Oklahoma Health Department to stop issuing or changing birth certificates with nonbinary as a gender option.
