Liz Cheney has been a rabbid anti-Trump RINO since the beginning. Now, the Republican party may finally be seeing her for the liability that she is. Better late than never, right?
Republican minority leader Kevin McCarthy found himself in hot water, this week as it was revealed that he is “roommates” with Frank Luntz. Luntz, we noted, lobbies for all kinds of globalist corporations and has tried to bend the republican party towards that end for years.

Perhaps as a means to distract Republicans from this and get back on track, McCarthy has finally (unofficially through back channel anonymous sources) announced his intention to oust anti-Trumper, Liz Cheney from her position as conference chair by June.
This comes as Cheney continuously attacks her own party rather than the myriad globalist policies of Joe Biden.
Once again, on Monday, she virtue-signaled to the left by attacking Trump for a statement he sent out via email to supporters.
“There is no way that Liz will be conference chair by month’s end,” a top McCarthy ally said on Monday. “When there is a vote, it won’t be a long conference; it will be fast. Everyone knows the outcome.”
“She is a big distraction,” the ally said. “I don’t see McCarthy saving her this time.”
“This is a broad range of lawmakers who have had it with her,” a second McCarthy ally said. “She’s a liability, and McCarthy’s as fed up as the rest of us that she is focused on the past rather than winning back the House.”
Trump, of course, responded in his own humorous way on Monday afternoon by stating:
Heartwarming to read new polls on big-shot warmonger Liz Cheney of the great State of Wyoming. She is so low that her only chance would be if vast numbers of people run against her which, hopefully, won’t happen. They never liked her much, but I say she’ll never run in a Wyoming election again!
The Daily Wire continues:
Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), chairman of the Republican Study Committee, slammed Cheney’s remarks at the GOP retreat in Orlando, Florida, last week, saying that she was not focused on what mattered because she was focused on attacking Trump.
“That’s what we got out of Liz Cheney, which doesn’t help us remain focused on that single goal,” Banks said. “Her lack of focus on that, while being focused on other things, and proving her point, was an unwelcome distraction. The sort of sideline distractions at the GOP retreat will only serve to hold us back from being focused on that nearly unanimous goal we have as a conference.”
Of course, Banks himself isn’t doing this without any personal motivations of his own. Many believe he plans to take her spot should she be ousted.
“Banks crafted his own memo outlining his vision for the GOP’s future that won praise from top Republicans. And the RSC has also helped coordinate media opportunities for its members, with Banks routinely popping up in D.C.-based coverage himself.”
