Liz Cheney Doubles Down, Laments Trump’s ‘Big Lie’

The statement comes after Trump himself attempted to co-opt the MSM’s new favorite catchphrase.

The GOP is in the middle of an internal conflict that has many observers more than a bit nervous.

In the wake of the 2020 election, with the far-right seemingly ready to resort to radical means of keeping Donald Trump in office, the Republican Party has been forced into some sort of reckoning.  The MAGA Movement brings with it a whole lot of voting power, but moderates are still trying to determine at what cost?

Leaders on the right side of this debate, such as Senator Ted Cruz, have been vocal about their support for the Trump agenda, and for the narrative bandied about on the far-right that suggests foul play in the 2020 election.

Wyoming’s Liz Cheney, who represents the more moderate wing of the GOP, (and who is no fan of Trump), is now pushing back against the “big lie” of 2020.

On Monday morning, Trump issued a statement from his Save America PAC proclaiming that the presidential election “will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!” — an attempt to appropriate the label given to the false claim by Trump and his Republican allies that last November’s election was in fact won by the former president.

Less than an hour later, Cheney (R-Wyo.), who faces renewed pressure from Trump-aligned forces within the Republican caucus to remove her from House leadership over her direct rebukes of the former president’s falsehoods, swiped back on Twitter.

“The 2020 presidential election was not stolen,” Cheney wrote. “Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system.”

Cheney has gone out on a limb here, however, as this dialogue has her defending the semantics of CNN and other mainstream media sources – something that the almighty MAGA voting bloc won’t soon forgive.

Minnesota ‘Sovereign Citizen’ Films Himself Stealing Vaccines from Health Workers

WOW!

America is on a path to a grand economic recovery in 2021, with much of the success of this move hinging on whether or not we can convince enough folks to get vaccinated so that herd immunity is declared. Of course, as with anything in the land of the free, there are plenty of us who just aren’t going to go along with the program.  That’s the beauty of liberty:  You are your own unique individual, and you have the inalienable right to live your life however you wish, just so long as you don’t make a victim of someone else in the process. And so our health professionals are now encumbered with the issue of vaccine hesitancy, as more and more Americans find themselves concerned over the speed at which these vaccines were developed. Some have even taken their concern over these inoculations to the extreme, as evidenced by the latest news out of Minnesota. A 32-year-old St. Paul man has posted multiple Facebook videos of himself stealing Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines by pretending he wants to get vaccinated and walking out with the vials. Thomas E. Humphrey said on the videos he’s a member of the sovereign citizen movement, which is an anti-government extremist group that believes they are sovereign from the U.S. He also said on a video that he lost his business and home last year due to pandemic restrictions, and now lives in a van with his dog. He says on another video he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but disagreed with the diagnosis. Humphrey posted videos of himself walking into an Allina Health vaccination site in Oakdale and leaving with a vial of Pfizer vaccine, calling it poison. The following day, he posted a video of himself taking a vial of Johnson &…

McCarthy Defies Trump and MAGA, Says ‘No One’ is Questioning 2020 Election Results

One has to wonder how uncomfortable Trump could make things for McCarthy in the coming months.

Published

There is a major rift within the Republican Party in 2021, and the deepest, darkest parts of this crevasse plays host almost exclusively to conversations on a single subject:  The 2020 election. The MAGA Movement, which represents the far-right end of the GOP, believes wholeheartedly that Donald Trump was cheated out of the election, either by the work of Dominion Voting Systems or via Democratic balloting procedures that were tilted in the direction of the liberal left.  Of course, none of his legal surrogates have been able to get a judge to so much as listen to their case, and those who spoke on the subject of Dominion often found themselves on the receiving end of defamation lawsuits totaling over one billion dollars. On the opposite side of this field of battle in the GOP’s civil war, the “establishment” Republicans have been lining up, urging calm and a return to their less radical roots.  These conservatives are so concerned about the machinations of the MAGA masses that they’ve even threatened to break off into their own party – effectively sabotaging the entire right side of the aisle in the process. While House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has long been a supporter of Donald Trump, his latest statement will almost assuredly see him savaged by the far-right. Hours after Rep. Liz Cheney was ousted from her Republican leadership position for rebuking former President Donald Trump’s ongoing claim that the election was “stolen” from him, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters, “I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election.” “I think that is all over with,” McCarthy, R-Calif., said at the White House, where he was meeting with President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell about Biden’s…
