Could We Maybe Replace Cheney With A Real Conservative?

This The Hill article is hilarious in that it is positioning the House GOP picking Stefanik due to loyalty to Trump, forgetting that loyalty is rather important in politics, and that House Dems won’t get money if they do not show their loyalty to Nancy Pelosi. That there was basically a cult in support of Obama. That almost no one will criticize Biden among elected Democrats. But, they do have a point about Stefanik

Loyalty trumps policy in Stefanik’s rise, Cheney’s fall

Some conservative groups are arguing that Rep. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) is too liberal on policy to replace embattled Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.) as the third-ranking House Republican.

The 36-year-old Stefanik has emerged as the leading contender to fill Cheney’s spot as GOP conference chair.

But FreedomWorks this week lamented Stefanik’s “dismal” 37 percent score on the group’s vote scorecard, arguing it would be a mistake to put her in charge of messaging in place of the staunchly conservative Cheney.

The Club for Growth has also gone on the attack.

“Elise Stefanik is NOT a good spokesperson for the House Republican Conference,” the group said in a in a Wednesday tweet.

“She is a liberal with a 35% CFGF lifetime rating, 4th worst in the House GOP,” the group added, referring to her score on the group’s own voting scorecard.

“House Republicans should find a conservative to lead messaging and win back the House Majority.”

Yeah, they should find one. Cheney has a 53 rating from Freedom Works.

Such complaints are unlikely to matter in a vote next week that has little to do with policy or conservative orthodoxy. The vote instead is shaping up as more of a loyalty test to former President Trump, the most powerful force in GOP politics despite his loss of the White House, and GOP losses of House and Senate majorities under his leadership.

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) and Minority Whip Steve Scalise (La.) say they’re fed up with Cheney’s attacks on Trump and are already throwing their weight behind Stefanik to replace her.

And Trump likely sealed the contest on Wednesday, hailing Stefanik as a “far superior choice” to the “warmongering” Cheney — one who will advance his populist “America First” agenda.

She should be replaced with a real Conservative, but, loyalty is important. The question is, can we have someone who is less conservative per their voting record (remember, Stefanik is from NY), but isn’t going to constantly throw Republicans under the bus, as Cheney does? She was another with Trump Derangement Syndrome, and would rather battle Trump than battle Democrats. She would rather have uber-Leftist China Joe as president and lose the Senate than keep Trump who was doing pretty darned well in advancing a conservative agenda.

Some Republicans are holding out hope that there’s still a chance to block Stefanik’s rise this month. One conservative GOP lawmaker is trying to pump the brakes on what he called a Stefanik “coronation.”

Why yes, they do feature a couple of un-named Republicans with comments supporting Cheney over Stefanik, because of course they do. But, Cheney has become a liberal darling, telling you all you need to know about her loyalties

Cheney won’t move on from Trump, and is really not helping the show

(Spectator) Liz Cheney certainly did her best to advance that narrative and repay political benefactor Kevin McCarthy with perfidy in the process, in Wednesday’s op-ed in the Washington Post (a curious place for a conservative to gain a forum).

It is curious, as she’s speaking to Democrats. She could have done this in the Washington Times. She isn’t helping the Republican Party with her TDS, and needs to go. She has become a liberal media darling, like other Never Trumpers, and needs to go.

More: Here’s from the Daily Caller

Republican Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney “secretly orchestrated” an op-ed in the Washington Post from all living former secretaries of defense slamming former President Trump’s handling of the military in January, according to the New Yorker.

Eric Edelman, a friend of Cheney’s, reportedly told the New Yorker that Cheney had personally met with all 10 living former defense secretaries, including Trump’s first defense secretary, Jim Mattis, urging them to participate in the op-ed. The report comes as Cheney is facing an onslaught of criticism from pro-Trump factions in the Republican Party who want to see her removed from the GOP leadership in the House of Representatives.

She’s an unhinged Never Trumper who won’t move on and would rather go after Trump than take on Democrats.

    Teach: She should be replaced with a real Conservative, but, loyalty is important.

    Rep Cheney is more conservative than Rep Stefanik, but the uber-cynical Stefanik read the political tea-leaves and recognizes the devolution of the QOP. Cheney is loyal to America, Stefanik is loyal to tRump.

    Teach confuses unflagging loyalty to his disgraced Master as conservatism. Those who hate the “other”, i.e., libs, Dems, Blacks, LGBTQ, immigrants and Muslims as he does drives their loyalty to their Master.

    Your Master lost the 2020 election, bigly. He lost the popular vote in 2016. He inspired the insurrection on Jan 6 where thousands of his most violent supporters attacked the US Capitol in an effort to derail the Constitutionally-mandated certification of the votes.

    Your Master is the head of cult. Teach is a member. The cult is not interested in policy, conservatism, freedom or Americans, but only devotion to their Dear Leader. Yours is a cult devoted to hate, loyalty, and most of all, power.

    Teach confuses unflagging loyalty to his disgraced Master as conservatism.

    Although state level Republicans are working to suppress minority vote, tRump was unelectable in 2020, will be unelectable in 2024 and will destroy the Republican Party in the process.

      Rimjob(dipshit that he is): Rep Cheney is more conservative than Rep Stefanik…

      Not recognizing the coordinated PR hit job put out by the anti-trumpers and abiding media that still fear Trump. Plus Trump endorsed her over Cheney who voted to impeach the President on false charges.

      Thanks dumbass for caring!
      You’re not very smart.

      Bwaha! Lolgf

      The esteemed Mt Dowd doesn’t understand:

      Donald Trump is a temporary phenomenon, but what he did is far longer lasting. For decades, more conservative Republicans went along with whomever was nominated, in processes which favored the wealthier elites. Along came Mr Trump, who was able to mostly self-finance his primary campaign, but who campaigned on what real conservatives wanted for decades: a populist idea, an idea that America is the greatest nation on earth, an idea that America should be for Americans.

      For decades, Republican presidents have been promising to ‘do something’ about illegal immigration, but it was always along the lines of, “Well, we’ll secure the borders, but we’ve got to accept the illegals who are already here and provide them a path to citizenship.” Mr Trump said, “We’ll secure the borders, and deport the illegals who are already here,” and that is what conservatives really wanted.

      Baños is Spanish for bathrooms. How do I know that? Because Lowe’s and Home Despot and practically every other large store now has its direction signs in Spanish as well as English. Well, real Americans are tired of “Press 1 for English; press 2 for Spanish.” We want immigrants, vetted immigrants, to f(ornicating) learn English, to assimilate into American culture, or stay the f(ornicate) out.

      Populism is defined as “a political approach that strives to appeal to ordinary people who feel that their concerns are disregarded by established elite groups.” In it’s own way, that was Bernie Sanders approach as well. With the internet, with Facebook and Twitter and great blogs like The Pirate’s Cove, conservatives are now able to get populist ideas out to the public in ways that the ‘gatekeepers’ of the credentialed media prevented not that long ago.

        We very well understand the fear that drives those that worship their strongman, trump.

        As we’ve pointed out before, both trump’s and Sen Sanders’ popularity was because of their populism – trump’s faux version and Sen Sander’s general article. trump appealed to the white nationalist urges of white conservatives – trump hates what white conservatives hate – minorities, foreigners, Muslims, gays and the transgendered. But he did absolutely NOTHING for the white working class rather than appeal to their insecurities. Sen Sanders advocated reforming the tax system, universal healthcare, comprehensive immigration reform, living wages, “free” education, address homelessness…

        Think of how our current health care system harms the economy. Workers stay in jobs for the “benefits” rather than seeking jobs that better meet their skills and objectives.

      Hypocrite Elwood P. Dowd – Donald Trump scares your globalist Masters bigly – and that is all we need to know.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Bilious Bill still has nothing of substance to type.

        Donald J Trump has been a cancer on America. The tumor was excised in Nov 2020 but we have to be on guard against any regrowth. No doubt he has metastasized to most of the Republic Party and these oligo- and micro-metastases will also have to be removed.

    Loyalty is important
    Can’t have a cult without it can you?
    Trump was pretty far from being a traditional conservative either in personity or politically
    And like his preceding Republican President he left a crashed economy

    • Kye says:

      What on earth would a fascist like you know about loyalty? You rule out of fear, not loyalty. That’s the way cults rule too. They put fear in the hearts of their followers, not love but hate.

      I’d also like to know what makes you, a leftist, an expert on what constitutes a “traditional conservative”? You have no clue. You are ruled by hate not understanding.

      President Trump wasn’t perfect but HE did not leave a crashed economy. The demofascist governors and mayors who closed businesses down over a flu, eliminated jobs, closed schools, murdered the elderly in homes, refused to use common sense to control the scamdemic did. He closed nothing but some borders and some travels and you shitlibs went bananas. You allowed the BLM terrorists and your Antifa thugs to burn and loot cities, murder cops and citizens and ruin the rule of law and AS USUAL are trying to rewrite history and blame it on Trump. Fuk you, moron.

      “The Biden Administration’s latest failure has made history. After economists predicted an addition of around one million new jobs to the economy, the actual number came in at a dismal 266,000. That makes it the worst miss in history and an absolutely pathetic showing for Joe Biden’s “build back better” strategy.
      Not only did we not add anywhere near the number of jobs expected, but the unemployment rate actually went up to 6.1%.”

      You people are America hating terrorists and most sadly FOOLS!

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Kye’s knowledge of cults is impressive. And understandable. But we cannot question your loyalty to your Master.

        trump did leave a crashed economy as did the Republic Prez before him.

        The US lost 4 million jobs under your cult leader. It’s why Americans kicked his sorry ass to the curb.

        During Obama’s final three years, from January 2014 through January 2017, the nation added 8,079,000 jobs, an increase of 5.9%.

        During Trump’s first three years, from January 2017 through January 2020, the nation added 6,585,000 jobs, an increase of 4.5%.

        And we know what happened in trump’s last year.

        How long has President Biden been in office? Perhaps 110 days?

    The fact that Jeff endorses Cheney tells you all you need to know.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Fuk you, twerp. We see that Porter has another fluffer.

      Liz Cheney is getting exactly what she deserves. She has been an opponent of decency and civility since she was elected, and has voted more often with trump than her apparent replacement. Rep Cheney helped build the dysfunctional party that trump captured, supporting him in his campaign against America.

      Only the trump-engineered insurrection was a bridge too far. Is she being loyal to our Constitution or is this just a political ploy on her part? Who knows. She may recognize that trump loyalty is just the latest Lost Cause for conservatives and cannot be sustained. Most other cementhead Republicans have calculated to ride the trump train assuming they can hop off when it crashes. Possibly. Your worship of your Master likely spells the destruction of the GOP. What will replace it?
