Cheney Removed as House GOP Conference Chair

Republicans have officially voted to remove Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney from her position as House Republican Conference Chair. The decision was reportedly made by voice vote, meaning there will be no formal record of which House Republicans ultimately voted to eject or keep Cheney in the leadership position. However, according to a report from The Hill sources say Republicans overwhelmingly voted to oust Cheney.

Cheney faced the mounting pressure to be removed not because of her choice to vote to impeach former president Trump as some Democrats have suggested but because she lost Republican’s faith she was committed to winning back the House. Despite calls from Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to focus her efforts on the future and winning back the House next year Rep. Cheney continued to dredge up the past and make comments about former President Trump.

Before the vote this morning, former President Trump released a statement pushing Republicans to vote to remove Cheney from her role.

“The Republicans in the House of Representatives have a great opportunity today to rid themselves of a poor leader, a major Democrat talking point, a warmonger, and a person with absolutely no personality or heart,” Trump said. “As a representative of the Great State of Wyoming, Liz Cheney is bad for our Country and bad for herself. Almost everyone in the Republican Party, including 90% of Wyoming, looks forward to her ouster—and that includes me!”

Last night, Cheney fought back in a defiant floor speech blaming form President Trump for the renewed push to remove her as Chair of the House GOP Conference

The New York Post reports:

“A former president, who provoked a violent attack on this Capitol in an effort to steal the election. He has resumed his aggressive effort to convince Americans that the election was stolen from him. He risks inciting further violence,” she said on the floor.

“Millions of Americans have been misled by the former president, they have heard only his words, but not the truth as he continues to undermine our democratic process, sowing seeds of doubt about whether democracy really works at all. I am a conservative Republican, and the most conservative of conservative principles is reverence for the rule of law.”

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), who previously nominated Cheney for her leadership position, is expected to be elected to replace her in her leadership role as soon as the end of the week.

Stefanik — a moderate whose profile skyrocketed as one of Trump’s leading defenders during the first impeachment trial — has received high-profile endorsements from Trump, McCarthy and Scalise, but has seen some pushback from conservatives who cautioned the former Tuesday Group chair’s record is too moderate to be effective in the position.

Upon hearing the news former President Trump released another statement slamming “warmonger” Cheney.

“Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being. I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party. She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our Country. She is a talking point for Democrats, whether that means the Border, the gas lines, inflation, or destroying our economy,” Trump says. “She is a warmonger whose family stupidly pushed us into the never-ending Middle East Disaster, draining our wealth and depleting our Great Military, the worst decision in our Country’s history. I look forward to soon watching her as a Paid Contributor on CNN or MSDNC!”

  1. This action was right and proper. She allows her hate of Trump override her judgement and has been detrimental to the nation. Now if the republicans in Congress will stand up to the democrats we may have a chance.

    1. Yes we do! As a voter in Wyoming I can attest that there are many of us working to do just that.

    1. I’m always frightened but not surprised when the leftists stand with or support a Republican.
      Never good news. Mittens thinks this action won’t get us a single extra vote. I totally disagree.
      The Republican party has become the party of the working men and women.

  2. She is a disgrace to Wyoming, where I live. I voted for her, but soon regretted that decision. Like the article said 90% of Wyoming voters have turned on her and want her out. She doesn’t represent The Cowboy State and it’s people

    1. I hope the great people of Wyoming will come out in droves come 2022 and send her into retirement.

    2. It looks like our Republican “leadership” will not help in this effort. We may have to elect a Democrat, which I am prepared to do if she wins the primary.

      1. NO! Never vote for a Dem…………a Dem will vote against everything Republican 100% of the time even if they promise not to! At least a RINO will vote WITH the Republicans part of the time. However, now that Cheney has been removed from her leadership role….she may be an exception. I do not expect Cheney to run for Congress again after this crushing defeat! She may run for another office but, why would the Republican party help her with campaign funding when she is against what the majority obviously wants? Why would the people of Wyoming vote for her?????

  3. BRILLIANT! Liz Cheney was poison to the whole MAGA concept of America First. By her own words, she hated us and wanted to drive us out of the party. Thankfully, the days when country club Republicans controlled the party is over. The Grand Old Party is officially open for Working Americans who prioritize job growth and upward mobility for ALL Americans of ALL ethnicities (duh), low taxes, freedom, respect for law enforcement and our veterans. Stronger trade. We don’t want wars and we all agree when it comes to the size of government, less is more.
    Bring on Elise Stefanik. In 2020, Stefanik defied all predictions of a major GOP rout, She recruited and financed 15 new House Reps. infusing the GOP with new faces of women and minorities across the nation. Elise Stefanik is wholly focused on throwing open the GOP tent to ALL working Americans. There couldn’t be a greater contrast to LIz Cheney.

    1. Her daddy is a globalist just like bush—her daddy got his pockets full from defense contractors–Cheney was instrumental in starting the middle east war–do you see him or bush trying to help crippled soldiers –no people on tv asking for money—and we send billions to shit hole countries but can not help our soldiers families—-we know the democrats do not like the military and some republicans like like military because they are getting rich from defence contractors.

    2. GOOD comment! Stefanik is from NY and may never be as conservative as we want her to be but, so far what I have seen from her, I love! Just as long as she doesn’t evolve into just another RINO and become like the rest of them who are not going to work for all the wonderful things in your comment…….we are trying to vote them out of the GOP asap!

  4. BAD CHOICE!!!! Ejecting those that don’t ‘worship the dear Leader’ is a sign of misplaced loyalty and a Dictator!!!! It’s more important to be observant of the FACTS [and be loyal to the CONSTITUTION] than be loyal to a person!! [Dictators have loyalty from their subjects! Like Kim Jun Un, Xi Jingping and Putin have loyalty from their subjects. The similarities of Trump and the above Dictators might explain why Trump gets along so well with known Dictators.]

    1. Thanks for posting your views.
      By popular vote, you have now been nominated as the “Token Internet Fool for the day”.
      Your participation trophy is in the mail and should get to you in a few months.

    2. Yes it is people like you that helped lose in 2008 and 2012. The establishment republicans may think they are back in power, but this vote shows that the conservatives still have some punch left. Come 2022 we will see how much the establishment republican or the conservatives have in who has the power to win.

    3. Hmmm…….you left Dementia Jo-Jo Biden off your list of dictators! He is the one who is shredding the Constitution, he has erased the southern border allowing any and all, including criminals and terrorists, to come in to our country for the American taxpayers to support! He is against law enforcement and supportive of BLM/antifa marxists…..there is too much wrong with this marxist administration to list it all.
      Cheney was voted out, that is the American way, if she had been removed any other way you Dems could complain. It is none of the Dems business how Republicans conduct business as long as it is Constitutional and legal. They certainly don’t take advice from the GOP on what they do! They do listen to and obey “the squat squad” and a lot of other people as bad!
      If you are just another RINO, I see why you are upset about Cheney being voted out! Now, we have to get her voted out of her seat………..

    4. Your fake president who is worshipped by the media has dictated more corruption, allowing illegal aliens, cutoff oil production, received multi millions from foreign countries, no wars during President Trump, peace treaties during President Trump, causing countries to put up their share of money, I could go on you get the picture. President Trump is not to be worshipped but to acknowledge his accomplishments.

    5. You are so wrong. Mr. Biden is a pay pal to the Chinese and is friends with Putin…no bigger dictators than them and in addition he is going to reinstate the false agreement with Iran…I see more bucks of ours going their way.

  5. Cheney was properly dismissed, not because she voted to impeach Trump, but because she let her TDS become an obsession. No politician should let personal feelings overide the duty to their constituents. If Cheney had just moved on she would not have been ousted.

  6. Ms. Chez forgot that “ we the people” have a voice there as well as the taxes
    Ms. chez and Rinos will be removed by our votes, to name a few

  7. This reminds me of a writing I saw on a bathroom wall in Saudi Arabia after the first Gulf War, “Dick Cheney, before he Dick’s You!!!!!!!

  8. Cheney’s speech was entirely Democrats talking points. It was abysmal and disgusting. She’s fully New World Order. Obviously happy with the Commander in Thief in the White House.

  9. She is just like her old man, a worthless,incompetent,war=mongering rhino, they should remove her from the party altogether, nobody likes the witch.

    1. tinker68, the job she has just been fired from was, as leader, to work toward the GOP regaining the majority in the House next year, she was not doing her job because “Pelosi like” Cheney has TDS and all she could do was rehash and complain about her hatred of DJT instead of moving on with strategy and plans to regain control of the House! That’s all she was doing and the Republicans in the House were getting nothing done toward the “end goal”! So, she was fired from her leadership position!
      What gets better…….I am not sure you would understand…………..

  10. Good job. Now we need to vote her out and all other RINOS in 2022 and a new administration in 2024.

  11. Dump all the RINOs now. Going into the 2022 election cycle is the opportunity to take back the House and the Senate and stop Joe Biden in his tracks. Getting rid of the likes of Liz Cheney will help to create a hole in the Democrat Party and help to stop all the leaks going over to the other side. Cheney has proven herself to be a DC Swamp Rat, a Deep State Troll, and Washington insider. She conned the good people of Wyoming into believing she was a Republican and a Conservative. She is neither. She is all about feeding the military complex, starting more foreign wars, and lining her pockets with taxpayer dollars and contractor kickbacks! She betrayed the American people and our President Trump.

  12. Murky in Alaska, Cheney in Wyoming, Romney in Utah are all babies of their father rinos. Time to stop this dynasty crap! Bad apples are bad apples from older bad apples. But these days rinos are worthless, need to be removed because the country is at stake. Same can be said of the establishment people. Kick em out. Wray, Sessions, etc. have all proved to be worthless. At least all of us including Trump now know who the enemy within is and some of them are in the GOP and our national bureaus. DC Cesspool has a lot of floaters that need to be flushed in great numbers.

  13. Great job! Lets vote out all the rinos. They are an impedement to good government. They are democrats in sheeps clothing.

  14. I do not disagree with this decision to oust her for the reasons given. She was given opportunity and knew exactly how she could retain her position, but decided to not do so. She is an apparent RINO. I do not know her personally, but it must be pointed out that people who are Republicans have the right to their opinions and are permitted to voice them – that is what differentiates Republicans from Democraps in the first place. But the vindictive treatment of her is not right. She might actually believe some of the things she says and we should respect that. This does not mean that she should have been allowed to retain her position in the party because she voiced opposition to Trump, but that she refused to get on board with her job as a leader, instead went off to help the Democraps some more. This is a clear sign that she does not belong in the position and therefore is removed properly.

    But I reiterate, the Republican Party has suffered much in the past due to weak so-called leaders such as Mitt Romney – Trump saw him immediately for what he is. He lost the election for President because he wanted to. He sold out and now he is trying to make a comeback – he is not leadership material, he is a joke.

    There are others who follow a fine line such as Collins, she voices opinions and her stance on occasion gets blowback, but generally she votes right and her thinking is only slightly obtuse. This is not the case with Murkowski (sp) of Alaska who got her position by cheating and has been another McCain in the party. She is a fraud and should be replaced with a real Republican, not a joke like she is. If these people are drummed out, it should be because they were beaten in a primary. Unfortunately, my feeling is that Cornyn of Texas is another that needs to be replaced, but we missed out the last time around.

    These are my opinions based on over 50 years of participation in the political realm. I did not like Trump when I first saw him, but the more I saw of him the more I liked him. For those who hate him so much, I think I see why – you cannot stand to have somebody in charge who actually does what he says he will do. He does not play their games and knows how to deal with them. Only Trump would stand up and state the obvious – the election was a fraud. There was way too much obvious fraud and now we hear the Democraps are coming for the total control of voting. The day that the Democraps stop using IDs for their functions, I will believe that they are serious about ‘voting rights’. What they mean by voting rights is every one who votes for them is allowed to vote and to vote often, over and over, even when they are dead or have moved. Then they can vote by mail with multiple ballots without any checks on them. All votes for the opposition really belong to them so they should be counted but for their candidate regardless of whom they were cast for. That is what the Democraps are working on and that is what the anti-Trumpers are working for. And it looks like the Bush group is joining them – what liars they were!!! All because Jeb was mistreated by Trump? What is he, a baby?

    1. Jaydubyah, Well done.I guarantee ya’ that even most of the Republicans don’t recognize a fascist country when they see one. We are damn close to one now. When you have government as partners with with big corporations, the press, television, movies, and breaching the Constitution all over, you have a fascist country. The democrat fascist army and their allies, BLM, are out almost every night burning, killing and destroying in an endeavor to establish a socialist country but they’re so stupid they don’t realize it’s not going to get socialism, it’s going to get fascism. The democrats love it Fatifa is a joke, they think, they think they’re fighting fascists. BLM wants to establish downright communism. Republicans and patriotic democrats better recognize what’s been slowly going on for decades is near to their goal.

  15. Can you imagine a sports team where an underling constantly criticizes the strategies of the coach? He/she wouldn’t last long. Keep your opinions to yourself and support the TEAM! Especially since DJT is a WINNER!

  16. Cheney is an anti American who did not deserve her position! She was hated by all and especially by the Wyoming people!

  17. Maybe she should become a democratic? Her opinionated views and her motives are clearly not what the Republican Party stand for. The democrats depend on the likes you who’s own agendas are put ahead of the republicans values. Hopefully this will be a wake up call for the rest of the Wishy washy officials. MAYBE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE VOTING FOR THESES CLOSE MINDED REPUBLICANS NEED TO REVIEW THEIR VOTING RECORDS ON ISSUES CONCERNING THE COUNTRY INSTEAD OF WAGING WAR ON A SINGLE INDIVIDUAL WITH THERE OWN POLITICAL AGENDAS AND VIEWS.

  18. YAY!! GET RID OF HER!! She needs to change parties!! She speaks just like a Democrat would!

  19. Don’t try to lie to the American people either Cheney! President Trump was totally constitutional, its the rinos and their cohorts the Democrats who have shoved the Constitution under the Rug. You rinos are a dying breed and are liars just like the Democrats.

  20. I’ve been listening to all the talking heads on the alphabet networks as well as the reps. who voted to impeach Trump, and not one of them has been able to get what happened right. President Trump said ” go peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. I don’t recall him telling them to riot. To this day I still believe there were outside influences (Antifa), or some other organization. Those reps and senators who voted to impeach, I believe they have another agenda. I would not be surprised to see them run or higher office. Be prepared to start seeing most if not all on Meet the Depressed, or some other left wing Sunday morning program.

  21. Cheney IS NOT A REPUBLICAN but a Democrat in GOP drag. She doesn’t think like a Conservative, nor does she speak nor act Conservative. She doesn’t know “who” she is.

    Unfortunately, Cheney has been invaded by Evil and no longer can she think nor act straight, but only emits nasty comments, volumes of comments! It seems she has no idea why fellow Republicans do not want anything to do with her. She has made irresponsible comments against P.T. which created major issues/friction with the GOP. If she keeps it up, she may find herself permanently kicked out of the GOP. Then the only place to go is Left, Radical, Clueless Democrats. Cheney absolutely passed the dem test. No one likes nor wants her…
