In the political world of 2021 what could potentially be worse than Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) or NIAD Director Dr. Anthony Fauci? Easy: How about Rep. Cheney humiliatingly falling all over herself to desperately white knight for Dr. Fauci. You would hope that that was a joke… but no. No. It’s not.
Dr. Fauci is one of the finest public servants we have ever had. He is not a partisan. His only interest is saving lives. We need his expertise and his judgment to defeat this virus. All Americans should be thanking him. Every day.

Liz Cheney, Habitually Picks The Wrong Side In Every Fight Now
Now surely, Rep. Cheney, couldn’t possibly be so very myopic, so absolutely obtuse as to be on the wrong side of yet ANOTHER seemingly obvious choice between conservative principles and pleasing her DNC overlords. Right? Wrong.
As Redstate’s Bonchie wrote “this is the same person who spread the fake Russian bounties story uncritically and then doubled down, basically going with a “fake but accurate” defense.”
It is somewhat stunning even for someone with the intellectual dishonestly to persistently attest that President Trump and her GOP colleagues had some sort of culpability for the January 6th Capitol breach, by using the EXACT same rhetoric merely toned down a bit, that Democrats have used for decades. But yes, Rep. Cheney is breathlessly rising to an ardent defense of Dr. Fauci, without even deviating from the Democrats’ pre-scripted talking points.
As written in DeepState Rabbit Hole, “Dr. Fauci’s long-held support for gain-of-function research is well documented and completely flies in the face of his testimony before Congress and contentious exchanges with Sens. Rand Paul and John Kennedy.
And now with the release of over three thousand pages of his emails making contradictory comments and covering for his cohorts, Dr. Fauci is looking more like Faust every day. Having long ago sold his soul to Mephistopheles.”
It seems now that Congresswoman Liz Cheney has made her own ‘Faucian’ (read like: Faustian) bargain with the Devil (read: Nancy Pelosi). One really has to wonder: What is Cheney expecting to get in return?
Oh, that’s right this woman who was once the third most influential Republican on the hill believes that she and other like her *(Sen. Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Ben Sasse and Pat Toomey) will form the nucleus of the ‘real’ Republican party.
But Newt Gingerich thinks she might have something else in mind, he told Fox News in early May according to The Hill, “the Cheneys are very smart. They have been around a long time. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see her show up as an independent candidate for president if Trump is renominated.”
