Republicans appear poised to retake the majority in both houses of Congress in 2022 if the party can cleanse itself of the lingering stench of RINO elites such as Liz Cheney and Mitt Romney.
“We want leaders who believe in the Make America Great Again movement and prioritize the values of America First,” former President Donald Trump recently stated. “Elise Stefanik is a far superior choice (than Cheney), and she has my COMPLETE and TOTAL Endorsement for GOP Conference Chair.”
Mr. Trump transformed the GOP into a MAGA-loving workers party driven by policies that improved the U.S. economy, reduced poverty to historic lows, and demonstrated respect for law enforcement. When the populist strongman arrived in Washington, D.C., elitist politicians on both sides of the aisle rued the day.
A steady bloodletting of do-nothing Republicans from the party changed its trajectory. Working families are now energized by the party Trump built. But Cheney and Romney threaten to backslide the GOP into the Swamp. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy recently went on the record indicating Wyoming Rep. Cheney’s position in leadership was over.
“To defeat Nancy Pelosi and the socialist agenda, we need to be united, and that starts with leadership. That’s why we will have a vote next week, and we want to be united and looking moving forward,” McCarthy reportedly said. “We are in one of our biggest battles ever for this nation and the direction of whether this century will be ours. As conference chair, you have the most critical jobs of the messenger going forward.”
The California Republican promptly went on the record agreeing that Trump-endorsed Rep. Stefanik should assume Cheney’s leadership post. Although McCarthy was seen as a holdout, Cheney’s ongoing support of Democrat policies and hostility toward Mr. Trump makes it impossible to unite the GOP under the America First banner.
The Wyoming congresswoman reportedly orchestrated a Washington Post hit-piece against Mr. Trump. She enjoys sweeping support from socialists such as Bernie Sanders and radical Democrat leadership. Republicans in her home state had already censured her and want Cheney ousted entirely. Although she won re-election with 70 percent of the 2020 vote, Republicans are lining up to remove her in the 2022 primary as she recently polled at minus-36 points.
“House Republican sources tell us Cheney is ‘checked out’ and already accepting her fate. Unlike the last attempt to oust her in February, which she handily defeated, she’s not making calls or whipping,” left-wing media outlet Politico Playbook reported.
Although RINOs such as former Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Jeff Flake saw the handwriting on the wall that their Americans last agenda wouldn’t fly under the Trump banner, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney clings to power. He was caught with a secret Twitter profile under the moniker “Pierre Delecto” he used to level criticism at the Trump Administration and undermine America First policies. Utah’s Weber Country GOP also voted to censure Romney for siding with Democrats in their phony impeachments. His recent appearance in the state’s GOP conference was met with boos.
Replacing the few remaining RINOs may be the only way to ensure the GOP continues to represent working families and not those of massive corporations or foreigners. Joe Biden failed to make good on his unity promise. However, a unified GOP can restore a republic that fulfills promises to working people.
