Cheney Must Count On Anti-Trump, Democrat Votes For Re-election After Wyoming GOP Abandons Her

In an election where by all accounts it is the Republican’s to lose, Bloomberg mentioned a little-reported phenomenon that could affect the Republican primary for the state’s only at-large House seat.

As Co-Chair of the House Select Committee on Jan. 6, the Never Trump Cheney has put herself in the precarious position of essentially having to count on Democrats voting for her in the Wyoming Republican primary to be reelected.

It could be quite a gamble for Cheney if she openly courts Democrats. Wyoming is a state that is deeply red. Donald Trump carried the state with 70% of the vote in 2020, compared to just 26% for Biden.

And still, Cheney has made being anti-Trump her entire identity.

Bloomberg quotes one such possible crossover Democrat as saying, “I did not support Liz prior to all of this because she’s a very conservative Republican — she voted with Trump 93% of the time — but I do now.”

Bloomberg elaborates on Cheney’s chances by noting, “Cheney will be counting on people like Newman to rescue her political career in a state where Republicans hold a four-to-one registration advantage over Democrats and Trump won 70% of the vote in 2020.”

Further, her campaign coffers are being filled from out-of-state, which Bloomberg hints is a result of her membership on the Democrats’ January 6 Committee.

Cheney’s primary challenger is attorney Harriet Hageman. Hageman has been endorsed by Cheney nemesis Donald Trump, and currently leads Cheney by a whopping 30 points.

Cheney Has Become No Friend To Republicans

In a tweet announcing her reelection bid, Cheney quipped, “In Wyoming, we know what it means to ride for the brand.” But if “the brand” is the GOP, they apparently have washed their hands of her.

Because Liz Cheney has decided Donald Trump is the hill she is going to die on she lost her position as GOP Conference Chair in the House.

In November of 2021, the Wyoming GOP voted to no longer recognize Cheney as a member of the Republican Party. 

In February of this year, the Republican National Committee officially censured both Cheney and fellow January 6 Committee member Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) for their roles on the committee.

Even if Liz Cheney should somehow eke out a win in August, she may be the kid in the lunchroom sitting all by herself. She has spent a lot of time calling her fellow pro-Trump Republicans “pro-Putin,” “anti-Semitic,” and “white nationalists.”

This after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy endorsed Harriet Hageman in March.

Cheney even seems to have adopted the Democrat rule of “never let a crisis go to waste.” Almost immediately following the horrific shooting at a Buffalo grocery store in May, Cheney joined the chorus on Twitter to accuse Republicans of “enabling white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-Semitism.”

Cheney does not seem to be rattled by being declared persona non grata by her own party. She stated, “I won’t waver or back down. I won’t surrender to pressure or intimidation. I know where to draw the line, and I know that some things aren’t for sale.”

Careful Liz, could be lonely at the top.

Exclusive: January 6th Documentary Film Producer Under Armed Protection Due To Trump Supporter Threats – TalkOfNews.com

Alex Holder under armed protection

#January #6th #Documentary #Film #Producer #Armed #Protection #Due #Trump #Supporter #Threats

Alex Holder, the director of the documentary film “Unprecedented,” now needs armed guards to protect him.

As the stakes continue to rise with each Select Committee hearing and more and more jaw-dropping evidence of criminality hones in closer to Trump and his family, the danger to all involved increases. There are unhinged people in all segments of society. But the people threatened by these hearings are the same people who gathered up weapons to follow a man who assaulted his own Secret Service agents precisely because he demanded that he lead that armed insurgency. It feels as though violence has been authorized from the top and from the beginning.

We know that the film contains evidence the Committee deems critical. Now, that filmmaker, a man who make a film Trump authorized and then participated in, is in need of protection. According to The Daily Beast:

The documentary filmmaker who filmed with Donald Trump and his family in the months before and after the attack on the Capitol says he now needs armed protection.

Alex Holder, who testified to the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection last week, spoke candidly about the risks his disclosures have put him in during a BBC TV interview Wednesday.

When asked if he felt threatened because of the evidence he’s given to the panel, Holder said: “Well, my life changed about a week ago and I now literally have two armed guards outside this studio right now that follow me around everywhere.”

It is only going to get worse until the evidence is out. Many people believe that Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony was moved up specifically to lessen the threat to her. Now that her testimony is public record, threats won’t stop anything. They could be used as a warning to future witnesses.

The film provides direct evidence of Trump’s activities in the days leading up to January 6th but the fact that Holder needs protection now is also evidence that the Committee is getting very close to the truth and the truth is likely much worse than we guessed.

#Republicans #Run #Truth

Karl Rove: “The baseless claim that the 2020 election was stolen doesn’t appeal to independents, whose votes in key states are often decisive…”

“A big enough red tide could sweep some of these nominees into office. But if Republicans who don’t rail about election fraud consistently run better than those who do, it would suggest that emphasizing the ‘big steal’ may not be such a great argument for 2024.”

“For any GOP candidate, there’s no easy way to escape weighing in on whether 2020 was stolen. Democrats will force Republicans running for other offices to declare their position on these outlandish and corrosive claims. GOP hopefuls better begin preparing responses now. They should consider starting with the truth.”

Exclusive: Florida judge rules state's 15-week abortion ban 'unconstitutional,' will move to block law – TalkOfNews.com

HB 5, which bans abortions after 15 weeks, will temporarily go into effect while the court prepares to block it. Planned Parenthood also plans to do what it can to block any stays the state of Florida seeks.

The Leon County Court in Florida has indicated it intends to block a law banning abortions after 15 weeks. Planned Parenthood’s case against the state was heard before Judge John C. Cooper earlier this week. The judge indicated he’d issue a ruling on Thursday and, true to his word, he made his decision. Cooper called HB 5 “unconstitutional,” saying it violates the “fundamental right to privacy,” which is laid out in Florida’s constitution. Per Section 23 of that document: “Every natural person has the right to be let alone and free from governmental intrusion into the person’s private life except as otherwise provided herein. This section shall not be construed to limit the public’s right of access to public records and meetings as provided by law.”

Cooper said the state failed to prove why HB 5 should take effect in the first place and is ready to sign an injunction against it. In the meantime, the law is expected to temporarily take effect. Planned Parenthood said it is seeking to make sure any stays sought by the state don’t go through. For now, this is great news for the organization, which called it “only a first step in fighting this dangerous abortion ban … We are grateful this court recognized that it is an unconstitutional intrusion on our patients’ and providers’ medical decisions,” Stephanie Fraim, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, said in a statement. “Once this ban is blocked, Florida abortion providers will be able to offer patients who decide to have an abortion the care they need here at home. Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida will continue to stand with all abortion providers and the patients who turn to them.”
