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 On Defunding The Police: Do Republicans Think We’re Sucking Blood Out Of Kids?

Published

President Biden Meets With Union And Business Leaders To Discuss Infrastructure

President Biden demonstrated his relationship with reality on Thursday after attempting to rebut a reporter who questioned the administration’s claims on Republicans being the ones advocating for defunding the police.

“I’m the Democratic Party; I am president. So is the Speaker of the House and so is the, the Majority Leader,” Biden claimed. “We are not defunding the police.”

“Okay,” a reporter responded. “And are there people who — in the Democratic Party, who want to defund the police?”

“Are there people in the Republican Party who think we’re sucking the blood out of kids?” Biden responded.

Biden’s response was in support of his administration’s claim that Republicans were the ones who wanted to defund the police, a claim that earned “Three Pinocchios” from the Washington Post.

The Washington Post reported, “Although Republicans all opposed Biden’s coronavirus relief package, no one voted to cut, or defund, anything. Rather, Democrats proposed $350 billion in emergency funds for state and local governments, and Republicans voted against those extra funds. That’s not a reduction.”

Contradicting the Biden administration’s claim, numerous Democrats have actually defunded their city’s police departments. In New York City, for example, Democrats removed $1 billion from the New York Police Department’s budget, which was criticized by other Democrats for not being enough. Further, in Los Angeles, Democrats cut the Los Angeles Police Department’s budget by $150 million, and the move was praised by Vice President Kamala Harris.

Supreme Court Lawyers Tell Commission Packing the Court Is a Bad Idea

Published

Joe Biden’s Supreme Court Commission was told packing the Court is a bad idea. And no, it wasn’t from a group of conservative legislators; the message came directly from Supreme Court lawyers.

Maureen Mahoney, a co-chair of the Supreme Court Practitioners’ Committee, told the Commission panel they are opposed to expanding the bench and adding more justices. The news is undoubtedly upsetting to liberals who have demanded Biden put more liberals justices in place.

During his presidential election, Biden refused to take a stand as to whether or not he was for or against packing the court but allowed the political environment, media and members of congress to fester on the issue. Instead, Biden created the Commission on the Supreme Court in April through executive order.

The Commission is composed of both liberal and conservative members who are expected to give a report in November about potential changes that the president and Congress could implement for the court. The next commission meeting is scheduled to take place November 10, and the conclusion of its findings are expected November 14.

“A larger bench could make arguments less productive, deliberations more difficult and yield even more opinions with less clarity in the law” sated Mahoney. However, the commission also heard from a group of progressive activists claiming adding more justices is long overdue. Funny, they did not say that during the Trump administration.

The Washington Times writes of the hearing:

During Tuesday’s hours-long meeting, a number of legal scholars testified about various changes to the high court and whether alterations would make the court more or less political.

Curt Levey, president of the Committee for Justice, pushed back against accusations that the conservative majority has only delivered wins for Republicans.

“There’s now been — starting with the Warren Court — 60 years of the living Constitution being used to push the law in a progressive direction. While there are certainly on the conservative side, there have been politically influenced decisions, you haven’t had this freewheeling, making things up out of whole cloth that you have had with the living Constitution,” he said.
