According to an article in the Federalist House Minority Leader McCarthy has to decide tomorrow whether he will save Liz Cheney from a majority of Republican House members that want to kick her out of her leadership job. It should be a very telling moment. Political hacks are very hesitant to turn on other political hacks at the leadership level. It’s basically unheard of. If in fact McCarthy sacrifices Cheney then to my mind that means that Donald Trump effectively runs the Republican Party.
Cheney made noises like Nancy Pelosi in blaming the Capitol incursion on President Trump. She has enraged the Wyoming electorate and it is a pretty safe bet that she will get the heave-ho in 2022. But this is a great test to see just how much the congress-critters understand about their status with the voters. If McCarthy protects Cheney I would not be surprised to see him primaried out of office in 2022 also.
At this point the Republican Congressmen and Senators are as useless as testicles on Mitt Romney. The only way they can hope to maintain the support of the voters is if they demonstrate at every turn an understanding of the mood of the conservative voters. And one thing the conservative voters are not in the mood for is neocons attacking Donald Trump while he is speaking the truth about the stolen elections.
The only useful thing that the elections can do at this point is to allow us to fire RINOs. First action should be all ten of the reps who voted for impeachment. After that we’ll have to go through the list of Senators. Some are easy. Murkowski, Romney and Sasse are three of the five senators who voted against Rand Paul’s resolution against the impeachment. They should be easy. The other two Collins and Toomey aren’t actionable. Collins just got re-elected and in six years she will be two hundred years old and automatically turned into an historical landmark. Toomey is retiring and besides since he is in Pennsylvania honest voting is a meaningless concept.
Now all of this is strictly for sweet revenge. These rats should be punished as soon as possible and they should never be allowed to run for dog catcher after this. But just to be clear, the real political action that needs to be taken will have to be at the state level. All conservative leaders need to coordinate actions across the length and breadth of red state America coming up with actions that can protect their citizens against Dementia Joe and the rest of the evil trolls. Any red state with a blue city should work out a strategy to criminalize the Antifa activity to such an extent that all of those cretins will be sent to the big-house for the rest of their lives. And policies should be formulated to punish the Big Tech companies that discriminate against their citizens. And they can drop the hammer on the schools and college that proselytize their children.
These are where the real politics will take place. But firing RINOs will be a nice diversion in the meantime.
