Patteeu Memorial Political Forum>Cheney Declares War on Trump Moments After Her Ouster

After House Republicans voted to remove Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as chair of the conference, the lawmaker pledged to ensure Donald Trump would never get “near the Oval Office” again.

“Going forward, the nation needs a strong Republican Party,” she said at a defiant presser after the vote. “The nation needs a party that is based upon fundamental principles of conservatism and I am committed and dedicated to ensuring that that’s how this party goes forward and I plan to lead the fight to do that.”

A reporter then noted that Trump may end up back in the White House in 2024, asking Cheney if she was prepared to prevent that.

“I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office. We have seen the danger that he continues to provoke with his language,” Cheney said. “We have seen his lack of commitment and dedication to the Constitution. And I think it is very important that we make sure whomever we elect is somebody who will be faithful to the Constitution.”

The representative condemned Trump and stressed her dedication to conservative values in remarks to her Republican colleagues moments before they voted to oust her.

“We cannot let the former president drag us backward and make us complicit in his efforts to unravel our democracy,” she said. “Down that path lies our destruction, and potentially the destruction of our country.”

“I will be leading the fight to restore our party and our nation to conservative principles, to defeating socialism, to defending our republic, to making the GOP worthy again of being the party of Lincoln.”

It'll be meaningless, absolutely worthless
Why did it have to be THOSE two dissenters or none at all? If this is indeed a banana republic action, (R)'s are responsible for it as it's easily stopped. If they really wanted to. Hell man, (D)'s are asking you to.

It's all going as (R)'s have dishonestly planned all along. How's that for Christian's showing others what class looks like? Cheer up.

Kinzinger is going willingly, even after Nan booted Republicans off the committee. At least Cheney can say that she was already there before Nan started her shenanigans.

He accused Pelosi of negotiating in bad faith, and stated that the scope of the legislation needed to examine other instances of political violence.

So this Kevin McCarthy crybaby shit over Pelosi exercising her power to reject Banks and Jordan, does not even warrant its own thread in the dc sub forum. Must not be that big a deal

I don’t understand why McCarthy wants to oust the other three he proposed. Seems like a dumb idea to nominate the two bozos, and not even know the rules that the Speaker has the power to reject bozos if it is a select committee.

Fair enough, especially with Graham... he always breathes straight up fire into the prevailing winds, yet can always be counted on to fold like a cheap card table should those winds shift

RINO squish

Liz Cheney’s transition from a Forever War Republican to a Forever War left-wing Democrat makes sense when you understand that her only future in politics (heaven forbid she get a real job) is a defense industry lobbyist or an anti-GOP MSNBC contributor. https://t.co/JZfR0wK4yE

Pretty good retort:

Meanwhile, Liz Cheney, one of two Republicans who accepted Nancy Pelosi’s invitation to join the committee, dismissed House minority leader Kevin McCarthy’s comment that she was a “Pelosi Republican”.

“I think that’s pretty childish,” she said.

The hearing is laughable... a police officer comparing 1/6 to his time in Iraq and Liz cheering them on...
