Looks Like Liz Cheney is Going to Find if She’s More Popular Than Donald Trump

Apparently Cheney has ticked off, not only her constituents but also Republicans in the House and in her home state of Wyoming.

Martin Kimmet, the chairman of the Republican Party in Park County, WY said he has received countless critical messages from the voters about Cheney’s impeachment vote.

“Kimmet was critical of Cheney’s chances in the upcoming 2022 Mid-Term elections, suggesting that the nosedive in her approval among constituents might be enough to see her ousted from Congress. “She couldn’t win a primary today for dog catcher,” Mr. Kimmet said.”

Ouch!  Let the 2022 primarying begin.  And let’s not forget Mitch McConnell and Mitt Romney when their terms come up.

Update:

More than half of House GOP commits to vote for resolution calling for Cheney to step down from leadership

Ah, now this is looking more like some short term fun. Ahhhh, poor Liz.  The mean old right-wingers are pulling on her pigtails.  How sad, how brave of her.

 

Update:

Long time OCF reader Chemist commented:

Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw defended her.
Yesterday, Mr. Crenshaw sent me a request for money.
I declined his request and suggested he ask Liz for the money.

Sorry guys, the jig is up.  Better find day jobs real soon.

 

After Impeachment Vote, Liz Cheney ‘Couldn’t Win A Primary For Dogcatcher’ In Wyoming According To GOP Officials

 

Which Republicans Don’t Deserve to Be Primaried?

I was going to list the ones that should be primaried and then I realized I could save an enormous amount of time by listing the ones that shouldn’t.

For senators I think Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz are currently the only ones I know of who are definitely worth saving.  But Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment farce will be the way to get a definitive list.  In both the House and the Senate, we can see who votes for or against President Trump.  Voting against impeachment would be enough for now to show they’re not cowardly traitors.  Any that do vote for it deserve to be primaried or recalled immediately.

All of these traitors should be primaried by someone that we know is on our side.  And if the RINO prevails in the primary it should be a sacred duty of our side to vote against him in the general election.  And there, the play is voting for the Democrat.  It’s not enough to abstain from voting or even voting for a third-party candidate.  In a red state the RINO might squeak by because of an uninformed electorate.  The idea is to punish the RINO.  Since a RINO and a Democrat are essentially the same thing, eliminate the RINO and maybe someday we’ll have a good candidate to vote for instead.

Think about one of these grifters who lives in his prestigious town in a gated community.  He went to an Ivy League schools for his law degree and saw that he had a better chance to be a make-believe conservative in a red state than trying to get a spot in a blue state.  The GOP establishment has invested millions of dollars of campaign money to move him up the ladder from state rep to Congressman and now he’s a senator making good money and accepting graft from the lobbyists for doing what he’s told.  Some day he could be committee chairman and make really big money from the PACs.

And then all of a sudden, some uncouth deplorables decide to wreck his career.  They vote a Democrat in and all that graft can’t be collected.  The poor bastard is going to have to scrape by on what he’s accumulated in his campaign fund.  And he’s wasted millions on his unsuccessful general election effort.  And, unthinkably, he might have to consider getting a job!

So, you can see why this would be such a good idea.  Word might get out to other potential grifters that our side has woke up and no longer want to be treated as idiots.  If a representative doesn’t represent the things you elected him for then the best thing to do is un-elect him.

What would be another great idea is for all the states we control to put in recall laws for their elected officials, especially the federal office-holders.  What wouldn’t I give to see Mittens Romney recalled?  I know that a lot of Californians have moved to Utah but there must be enough normal people there to eject that clown from the Senate.

In order for this idea to become a reality a new party or political organization needs to be founded with the purpose of providing reliable conservative representation for the non-progressives in this country.  The Republicans have demonstrated they are not up to the job.  They must be removed and primarying them is the way forward.

03JAN2020 – American Greatness – Post of the Day – Charlie Eastman – In the GOP Version of the Alamo, Nobody Dies Fighting

I liked this post by Charlie Eastman.  At this point probably the most useful thing we can do is identify the traitors and make sure to get them kicked out of office.  All of the congressmen and senators who stabbed us in the back need to be primaried and if they make it to the general election we need to give our votes to either a third party candidate that we want in or to the Democrat strictly for the sake of spite.  In fact if it’s a Republican who is very secure in his re-election prospects I say after the primary fails go straight to voting directly for the Democrat.  I’d rather see a Democrat in the Utah seat than Mitt Romney for the simple reason that ejecting Romney would give me great joy.

Who Will Represent Us Going Forward?

On Saturday my favorite evil thinker of the Dissident Right, ZMan said the best path forward is to stop voting for the Republicans.  After hearing that several Republican senators including Little Marco Rubio were already negotiating with the Democrat amnesty crew it was mighty tempting to agree with him.  After all, when you subtract Mitt Romney and what’s her name in Alaska and what’s her name in Maine it’s not like we have this unbreakable lock on the Senate anyway.  What if the Democrats took the two seats in Georgia and Biden is given the White House?  Would that be the end of the world?

Let’s talk about that.  If the Democrats have the Presidency, the Senate and the House I assume they will go ahead and go the full nuclear option by eliminating the filibuster altogether and go for a wholesale change in the way things are done.  There would be a very strong possibility that they would pass legislation to add seats to the Supreme Court to allow for all the things they’ve always wanted.  They would effectively nullify the first and second amendments.  Hate speech would be found to be unprotected and they would define hate speech as needed.  The right to bear arms would be interpreted to mean the National Guard.  Freedom of religion would be hand waved out of existence and we would be in a position where saying anything the Democrats didn’t like would be enough to get you fired from your job and dropped by your bank and credit card company.  As bad as things are now, that would be a quantum leap in oppression.

Would we gain anything by this turn of events?  The theory that the accelerationists hold is that letting things slip into outright despotism will raise the political temperature so high that it will cause an explosion among the freedom loving Americans and they will rise up in open violent insurrection.

They could be right.  And in fact, maybe we’ll get to find out regardless of whether the Right votes for the senate seats in Georgia.  After all, the Dems stole the election in Georgia last month.  What’s to stop them from stealing these also?  If they do, we’re probably going to find out soon enough what it’s like to live as slaves.

As far as what I think is the best political option we have going forward, I think it’s necessary to start a new party.  Even if President Trump prevails and is President for another four years, we have to start taking control of our government away from the UniParty that currently controls it.  Some leader with a lot of clout and a lot of money needs to build an organization that espouses the agenda of the Right.  There has recently been talk about President Trump and his friends leading an organization that does just this.  There’s also talk about him starting or joining a right-wing media company that will provide us with a source for news and information that isn’t fake.  I think both of these things are good ideas.  Right now, President Trump is the only man in America with the stature and resources to put something this ambitious together.

My vision for how this political party would work, is for it to clearly define the platform that the American Right wants and then find candidates that can compete in the Republican primaries of any Republican politician who is obviously a progressive.  And if our candidate wins, he can become the beginning of the reformed Republican party.  And if he loses then we have our candidate run as a third-party candidate and act as a spoiler.  Knocking out the RINOs will be a consolation prize if we can’t win the Republican nomination.  Think of how much fun it would be to primary Rubio or Romney.  Imagine Romney trying to explain how he is severely conservative when an actual conservative is running.  And with these candidates being endorsed by President Trump they will have an enormous advantage over the RINOs in most states.  This party can also build a rapport with the Republicans who are conservatives.  It can help influence policy at all levels of the political leadership because it will have popular support.  And it can call out even conservative Republicans if they falter.

If you look at how often the Republican establishment has supported politicians who don’t even pretend to believe in what we believe in you’ll realize that they’re not much better than the Democrats.  Romney is only the most egregious example.  There are plenty of other Senators and Congressmen who sell their vote to the highest bidder and have no interest in fixing this country.  We need a new party and if we start this way, we’ll start to get one.  Eventually maybe we can co-opt the Republican party or possibly we’ll just replace it with our own piece by piece.  Either way we will begin taking back the country with our own people.  And this new party will also allow us to negotiate with the Republican state politicians and influence their agendas too.  It could be the strongest special interest group lobbying these state governments because it will be representing tens of millions of Americans and their interests.

For those who say third parties never win I say when was the last time a mainstream Republican ever won anything for us?  The last time we elected a mainstream Republican to the presidency he gave us two wars and John Roberts as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.  We either try to get our own people in Washington or we abandon any hope of taking our country back peacefully.  If President Trump wants to build a party that represents us then I say give him the chance.  If that doesn’t work, I think I’ll have to change my mind and agree with the dissident right.

25AUG2019 – American Greatness Post of the Day – Thomas Farnan’s Trump vs. the Stepford Wife Republicans

I love this post.  Anytime George H. W. Bush, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and Peggy Noonan all cruelly get the business in one place count me as a fan.

It’s just full of the kind of venom these phonies deserve in spades.  Read it and enjoy.

Mitt Romney is the New John McCain

I lived in Massachusetts while Romney was governor.  He was useless.  This knife in Trump’s back is completely in character for Willard Mitt Romney.  I remember when he challenged Ted Kennedy for his senate seat.  Romney, a supposedly sincere Mormon twisted himself into a pretzel explaining how abortion wouldn’t raise any moral problems if he had to vote for it.  And as Governor he would take all the abuse from the Democrats and the Press with nary a peep.  He’s the only Republican I’ve ever seen that can make the Bushes seem macho by comparison.

I guess we can depend on Romney to be the new spoiler in the Republican senate delegation.  But boy will he get praise from the media.  I wonder if they remember his binders full of women?

This Will Be My Only McCain Link – Angelo Codevilla – American Greatness

I skipped all the hoopla last week and after Kyl was named interim Senate replacement I figured I didn’t have to bother McCaining at all.  But Angelo Codevilla wrote an article over at American Greatness  and I find his stuff almost always exceptional.  Well, it hit the right note for me so I’ll point to this one to anyone who is looking for a succinct summary of the whole McCain travesty.  RIP.

The Kitchen Sink and John McCain

Gorsuch Heads to the Hill

When Neil Gorsuch heads up to the Senate this week it’ll be interesting to see if his only enemies will be Democrats. Chuck Schumer has promised that he will force the Republicans to go nuclear.  What he is saying is that he will not release the Democratic senators in red states to vote against a filibuster.  The filibuster would prevent the nomination from being brought to the full senate for a simple majority vote.  This is a tricky situation.  There are seven Democrats up for re-election in 2018 who are in states that voted for Trump.  If all of those voted against the filibuster and the vice president threw in his vote that would be sixty.  But realistically it doesn’t seem likely that all seven would cave.  So if the Democrats can let a few of the most vulnerable vote for cloture it still allows few of the more secure senators to vote against.

This leads to the nuclear option. The Dems under Harry Reed eliminated the filibuster for every confirmation approval type but the Supreme Court justices.  This occurred because the republicans effectively blocked Obama’s other court selections.  Schumer at the time was hesitant about the decision.  Now he is shown prescient.  Trump has the potential of appointing another two (and possibly more) SCOTUS picks during his tenure.  And eliminating the filibuster would make the appointments under the current congressional make-up almost routine.

Great! What’s not to love?  Well, not so fast.  If I were to guess, John McCain and Lindsey Graham would be the usual suspects in any revolt in the ranks.  I can just imagine high flowery prose defending the sanctity of the filibuster as a sacred check and balance against the tyranny of the majority.  Blah, blah, blah.

Okay, how does it end up? My guess, Trump tells McConnell to promise McCain and Graham either some senate perks or some pork for their states and they find a way to vote for the change.  Then the same kabuki theater gets repeated during the actual approval when some other senators discover they have perks or pork that need to be addressed.  Long story short, Vice President Pence comes over to the Senate and Gorsuch gets approved 51 – 47.

You can say that eliminating the filibuster is a dangerous play. In four years President Warren will be nominating Justice Obama for the bench and we’ll be powerless to block that appointment.  To that I say, whatever.

You only get to worry about the bullet you dodge today. If you die today, writing on your tombstone that your bullet proof vest is on order would sound pretty pathetic. So the play is sound.  Get Gorsuch in.  Get Kennedy to resign and replace him with Tomás de Torquemada as soon as is humanly possible. And add another conservative jurist as soon as superhumanly possible.  So much damage has already been done that it will take eight years of a Trump administration just to get us back to the baseline of where we were under John Kennedy.

So gentlemen of the Senate, get off your asses and get it done. I was promised a (sort of) conservative Supreme Court by Easter.  But I’m getting impatient.  Let’s shoot for Palm Sunday.
