After narrowly surviving a challenge to her conference leadership role, Congresswoman Liz Cheney has shown the establishment GOP has absolutely no principles and is willing to tolerate her shameless double-standard. Rep. Cheney after saying in 2019 that a vote to impeach President Trump would “Permanently Damage Our Republic”, has dramatically changed her tune by voting and advocating to not only “pick off any member of leadership” but the banner-carrier of the Republican Party himself, President Donald Trump.
This week Rep. Cheney told reporters,
“We really had a terrific vote tonight, a terrific time this evening. Laying out what we’re going to do moving forward as well as making it clear that we’re not going to be divided and that we’re not going to be in a situation where people can pick off any member of leadership.“
Clearly, she meant ‘any member of ESTABLISHMENT leadership’ as she helped gleefully hammer Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene into submission and will likely aid and abet Democrats efforts to purge Congress of all Trump supporters.
Only the GOP would keep someone in leadership who has a 10% approval rating among her own voters. https://t.co/NsGfaaJfq9

The Gateway Pundit explained the situation well,
“Liz Cheney decided it was in the country’s and the Republican Party’s best interest to vote to impeach the President on made-up charges. She believes Trump supporters are violent. Just look at all the broken glass and murders at Trump events over the past few years (i.e. none)! Another group, Antifa, was at the Capitol that day and was involved in damaging property and instigating riots but that doesn’t matter. Elites hate Trump.”
A Little Background on Rep. Liz CHENEY’s Shameless GOP
Congresswoman Liz Cheney is the elder daughter of former Vice-President and infamous NeoCon Dick Cheney, arguably the power-broker behind President George W. Bush and the main driver of the war in Iraq. She is the latest in a new-ish GOP dynasty, definitely trading on the name recognition borne of her father’s long, profitable, equally shameless career.
B/t Dick organizing every living DoD Secretary to sign onto a "don't do a coup" letter and Liz voting for impeachment, Cheney's taking the lead on one side of the GOP civil war.

Politico’s Alex Thompson tweeted earlier this month that the Senior VP Cheney is still at work behind the scenes and orchestrated the out-of-left-field “don’t do a coup” letter from every living Secretary of Defense, while his daughter lined up establishment Republicans to impeach President Trump a second time. The Cheney’s have chosen a side in the “GOP Civil War” and they intend to be the saviors of the establishment against Trump’s “rabble”. The Cheney’s have mustered a ‘who’s who’ of the very worst the GOP has to offer including The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin, who wrote that Cheney “may have redeemed herself and a segment of the Republican Party,” and Chris Cillizza, who called Cheney “the conscience” of the Republicans. Bill Kristol’s odious publication “The Bulwark” said Cheney’s backstab of Trump was her “finest hour,”.
Yes, they Cheney’s are seeking redemption in the eyes of the American left to rebuild the NeoCon, Big-Government, Interventionist GOP of the Early 2000’s and slide back into their favorite role of parasites attached to the DNC forming a hideous gestalt Uni-Party.
