Trump Celebrates Liz Cheney’s Brutal Defeat: ‘Now She Can Finally Disappear’

#Trump #Celebrates #Liz #Cheneys #Brutal #Defeat #Finally #Disappear

Former President Donald Trump took clear joy in the crushing defeat suffered by Never Trump Republican Liz Cheney in Tuesday’s GOP primary for Wyoming’s at-large House seat.

With 99% of the vote tallied, numbers show Cheney lost to Republican Harriet Hageman, her Trump-backed challenger, by an absolute landslide.

The latest numbers show Hageman won by 37.4%, well above what even some gloomy polls had predicted leading into primary day.

Trump celebrated the defeat of a woman who has been nothing short of obsessed with his every move.

“This is a wonderful result for America, and a complete rebuke of the Unselect Committee of political Hacks and Thugs,” he wrote on his Truth Social media platform.

“Liz Cheney should be ashamed of herself, the way she acted, and her spiteful, sanctimonious words and actions towards others,” he continued.

“Now she can finally disappear into the depths of political oblivion where, I am sure, she will be much happier than she is right now.”

Liz Cheney Promises to Continue Stalking Trump

It seems rather clear that, unlike Trump is suggesting, Liz Cheney has no intentions of ‘disappearing into the depths of political oblivion.’

With the media propping her up as an almost mythical entity, Cheney was interviewed by NBC’s “Today Show” where they talked about her future.

During the segment, the soon-to-be former Congresswoman announced the launch of a new organization whose primary goal is to keep Donald Trump from ever becoming President again.

And herein lies why Cheney lost. She stands for nothing. No platforms. No solutions to offer.

She simply wants to fight Donald Trump.

Aside from an obviously unhealthy obsession, Cheney has the same moral set as any other Democrat – Which is to say, there are none.

Whatever It Takes … Including Running in 2024?

Liz Cheney remained defiant in the wake of her epic defeat, vowing to continue taking the fight to former President Trump. In a sign that an intervention in the Cheney family is required posthaste, she compared herself to Abraham Lincoln.

“The great and original champion of our party, Abraham Lincoln, was defeated in elections for the Senate and the House before he won the most important election of all,” Cheney told a crowd of supporters in Wyoming.

“Lincoln ultimately prevailed, he saved our union, and he defined our obligation as Americans for all of history.”

Cheney, to put it mildly, is no Abraham Lincoln. But it does appear she is looking to follow his path and win ‘the most important election of all.’

And most important to her is getting that big ol’ mean orange man.

“I will do whatever it takes to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office,” she said.

When asked point blank if she intends to run for President, there was no dismissal of the idea, but an indication that she’d make a decision down the road.

Running for president, said Cheney, “Is something I’m thinking about and I’ll make a decision in the coming months.”

Trump, you may be surprised, also had thoughts on a presidential run by Liz Cheney.

“The Fake News Media is claiming that Liz Cheney has such a ‘wonderful and bright’ political future,” he mocked. “Maybe they didn’t notice that she lost by nearly 40 points?

Added Trump, “She’s too angry and sick to succeed in the future, but who knows!”

‘Angry and sick’ – sounds like she’ll be running as a Democrat.

Exclusive: The DOJ’s latest filing has even more damning claims against Trump – TalkOfNews.com

The DOJ’s latest filing has even more damning claims against Trump

#DOJs #latest #filing #damning #claims #Trump

The photograph of highly classified documents strewn across the floor at Mar-a-Lago beside a box of framed Time magazines had already gone viral Wednesday morning as perhaps the defining image of the ongoing investigation into Donald Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified information.

The image was attached to a 36-page filing from the Department of Justice in the ongoing court battle by Trump to have a special master review the documents seized by federal agents when they searched Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s private Florida club and residence, in August. And it’s by no means the most damning claim from the overnight court filing, which you can read below.

  • In the filing, the DOJ asserts that Trump was likely taking efforts to obstruct justice: “The government also developed evidence that government records were likely concealed and removed from the Storage Room and that efforts were likely taken to obstruct the government’s investigation.”
  • Trump’s lawyers claimed to the DOJ there were no other classified documents at Mar-a-Lago in June. After handing over what they claimed were the remaining classified documents in a sealed legal envelope, a Trump lawyer “represented that there were no other records stored in any private office space or other location at the Premises and that all available boxes were searched.” That envelope contained “38 unique documents bearing classification markings including . . . 17 documents marked as TOP SECRET.”
  • The August search warrant at Mar-a-Lago produced “over a hundred classified records including information classified at the highest levels,” including three classified documents that “were located in the desks in the ’45 [Trump’s personal] Office.’”

The filing also contains detailed arguments against the appointment of a special master to review the documents, which Trump has claimed is necessary to review the documents to determine if they contain any privileged material. The DOJ noted a review by a filter team for any privileged information had already been completed. It also pushed back against Trump’s claims of executive privilege to justify holding on to the documents that the National Archives had requested under the Presidential Records Act, noting that there is no precedent for invoking executive privilege “to prohibit the sharing of documents within the Executive Branch.”

Read the DOJ filing

Trump’s lawyers are due to file a response on Wednesday, and a hearing is scheduled for Thursday in the matter before Aileen Cannon, a Trump-nominated federal judge in South Florida.

On his personal social media site, Truth Social, Trump said Thursday morning “Terrible the way the FBI, during the Raid of Mar-a-Lago, threw documents haphazardly all over the floor (perhaps pretending it was me that did it!), and then started taking pictures of them for the public to see. Thought they wanted them kept Secret? Lucky I Declassified!”

Trump has claimed that he had somehow automatically declassified any documents at Mar-a-Lago. There is no evidence that he did so, and his lawyers have not made the same claims in court filings.

Exclusive: Dr. Oz: Abortion is murder from the time of conception, except for when it's not – TalkOfNews.com

GREENSBURG, PA - MAY 06: Pennsylvania Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz speaks at a rally in support of his campaign sponsored by former President Donald Trump at the Westmoreland County Fairgrounds on May 6, 2022 in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Former President Trump endorsed Dr. Oz in the Pennsylvania Republican primary race for the U.S. Senate over his top opponent David McCormick. (Photo by Jeff Swensen/Getty Images)

#Abortion #murder #time #conception #it039s

Oz in his capacity as a physician, the 2019 version of Oz, sounded pretty pro-choice in that interview. “Just being logical about it,” Oz said then, “if you think that the moment of conception you’ve got a life, then why would you even wait six weeks? Right, then an in vitro fertilized egg is still a life.”

Which is apparently what 2022 Oz believes: Life begins at conception and it’s murder no matter what. Or at least that’s what May 2022 Oz said he believed. Now that it’s general election time and he’s not chasing the MAGAiest of the MAGAs for votes, Oz seems to think that maybe abortion is not always murder.

In a town hall meeting this week, Oz found some exceptions to his “100% pro-life” abortion-is-always-murder position: the health of the mother, rape, and incest. That’s a variation on the gaslighting forced birth proponents trotted out when various horror stories about abortion bans started emerging.

Like about the 10-year-old rape survivor who had to travel out of Ohio to obtain an abortion. Or people having miscarriages, or people whose lives are threatened by ectopic pregnancies. Those don’t really count as abortions, they have tried to insist. Terminating those kind of pregnancies, Catherine Glenn Foster, the head of Americans United for Life, testified would fall under any exception and would not be an abortion.

The Oz who was a doctor knows that’s bullshit. Abortion is abortion and it is a safe and essential medical treatment for millions. It is necessary for all kinds of reasons that are nobody’s business other than the person needing an abortion and whomever they wish to involve. No matter how the pregnancy occurred.

“I trust democracy,” Oz said this week in that town hall, trying to change the subject. “I trust your ability to influence our representatives in Harrisburg, which is where this decision should be made. It’s not talked about in the Constitution.”

But if he’s elected to the Senate, and if there’s a Republican majority, he’s going to have to be held accountable on this. Because there will be a Republican bill to create a federal abortion ban and he’ll have to take a position.

Bidens To Host Barack And Michelle Obama For White House Portrait Unveiling

#Bidens #Host #Barack #Michelle #Obama #White #House #Portrait #Unveiling

The White House has announced that President and First Lady Biden will be hosting Barack and Michelle Obama for their White House portrait unveiling.

The White House announced in a statement provided to PoliticusUSA, “On Wednesday, September 7, at 1:30 PM ET, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will host former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama for the unveiling of their official White House portraits.”

Normally, the White House portrait unveiling for the previous president would have taken place a year or two after the previous president left office.

For example, here is George W. Bush’s unveiling ceremony that took place in 2012:

Trump was the reason why Obama’s portrait was not unveiled when it should have been. Trump never scheduled the ceremony, and for his part, Barack Obama had no interest in participating in the ceremony with Trump.

Trump is still accusing Obama of crimes, so there is no doubt that if Trump would have won a second term, Obama would be waiting for him to leave office before unveiling his White House portrait.

Portrait unveilings at the White House are historic, as there are only five living ex-presidents, so anytime one makes a public appearance with the current president, it represents one-sixth of the living individuals who have been/are president.

It will be a special day in the White House, and one that is long overdue as Obama and Biden will be reunited at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
