Who woulda thunk?

Cheney's husband is a partner at Latham & Watkins law firm -- you know, the outfit that's representing Hunter Biden. Even though a spokescritter from Lizzie denies that her husband has anything to do with that crack-addled spawn of SharterJoe, c'mon, man!

 :rotf:

Now you know she's truly toast.

Quote
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) didn’t have to end her career this way. She’s the daughter of arguably the most powerful vice president in our history and part of a political dynasty in Wyoming. If she had just read the tea leaves, she could have been a congresswoman for life. No one could touch her in a primary challenge, but the incumbent Republican launched an all-out war on Trump. In 2020, more Wyoming voters cast their ballots for the former president than her, which was probably the most significant sign that maybe you shouldn’t go about setting yourself on fire in fighting your own party. Cheney didn’t listen. She lost her leadership position in the House and promised to stop Donald Trump from running again at all costs.

Cheney has proudly served as the Democrats’ foil in the select committee investigating the January 6 riot, which no one watched or cared about as the nation entered a vicious economic cycle of recession and high inflation. In the remaining months of this primary election season, Cheney was adamant that she was the future of the party and that the Trump supporters in her party were crazy. As you’d expect, the results of this incessant and unnecessary war against the leader of the Republican Party are a 30-point deficit in the polls.

You cannot declare yourself the future and savior of a political party when its base voters throw you out. This swan song of this woman’s career is grounded in the fact that she tried to get Democrats to vote for her. Flyers were distributed, which urged Wyoming Democrats to switch parties so they could support her in the Republican primary. In a deep-red state like Wyoming, prostrating oneself to Democrats for salvation is the ultimate act of desperation, and it won’t work.

Joseph Barbuto, the chairman of the Wyoming Democratic Party, told The New York Times in June that even if every Democrat in the state switched over, it would not be enough to save her.

Cheney recently issued remarks supporting the employees at the FBI in the wake of the federal ransacking of Mar-a-Lago based on a third-rate search warrant that alleged Trump had classified secrets on-site, including nuclear documents. You’d think this outpouring of support for the rogue DOJ was the final nail in the coffin for her political career, though you could argue her January 6 antics and the vote to impeach Trump were the last stakes. There’s something else. Her husband is a partner in the law firm defending Hunter Biden (via NY Post):

Quote
Wyoming GOP Rep. Liz Cheney’s husband is a partner at the law firm now representing Hunter Biden.

Philip Perry has worked at Latham & Watkins since 2007, and focuses on white collar cases, commercial and Supreme Court litigation, according to his company biography.

Another Latham partner, Chris Clark, has been representing Hunter Biden since December 2020 — but Cheney’s husband’s involvement at the firm had not been previously known.

Latham is a Democratic powerhouse, with company attorneys and other employees donating more than half a million dollars to President Biden’s 2020 campaign, Federal Election Commission records show. Clark himself ponied up $3,800.

Clark’s work for the first son is prominently displayed on his company profile, which notes his representation of Hunter in a “grand jury investigation regarding tax issues.”

The firm’s close ties to the Democratic party have come under scrutiny in the past.

Wyoming voters, wreck this lady and send her packing, please.

As the old saying goes, pick the hills on which you'd "die" wisely. Cheney didn't and it appears she will, in just a few days. Anticipating some schadenfreude, :popcorn: . I don't foresee her going gracefully, trying to back-stab her R opponent seems way more likely.

That was a useless political suicide.

Cheney voted generally Republican and conservative, reflecting the views of her constituents, the only problem being her very open dislike of Donald Trump.

If she'd muted that, she'd be a shoo-in on Tuesday.  But she wouldn't shut up.

Cruz's response to that was hysterically funny.

This analysis says that Franken was only joking. Uh huh.

Was Al Franken's endorsement of Liz Cheney a joke?

Quote
Yes, it most likely is a joke. Al Franken is a former senator and he’s a Democrat. Rumor is that he’s thinking about getting back into politics but so far nothing has come of that thought. In the meantime, he’s doing a little poking at Democrats who are supporting Liz Cheney in the Wyoming Republican primary.

Franken’s “endorsement” reads as though it is made tongue-in-cheek. Take a look.

<insert twatter post here, along with a photo of him grabbing a female GI's chest (without actually doing so -- the mark of a complete idiot.>

Which brought a little reminder of why Al Franken is no longer in the Senate.


His humor has always been juvenile. It’s just lame now that he’s old.

There’s little doubt that this would be his first time endorsing a candidate in a GOP primary race. “But I think Al Franken’s support will carry a lot of weight with WY Republicans,” is the final overreach. Wyoming is the reddest of states and there’s no way Al Franken’s endorsement would save a candidate among Republican voters, especially a progressive Democrat like Franken. So, it can be looked upon as a little fun on a weekend. Best of all he shows how Democrats supporting Liz in the primary look. It’s a cynical partisan ploy and, sadly, Liz encourages it for her own political survival. She’s going to lose the race bigly and it’s of her own doing.

I mean, since when do Democrats like any of the Cheneys? They are the ones who labeled her father as Darth Vader in the GW Bush administration and since then refer to him as a war criminal. Liz Cheney is as establishment Republican as we get and that is no longer a good thing in the era of Trump.

Some Republicans played into Franken’s endorsement, though, because of course they did. That’s how social media works. And Cruz knows social media.

<another Twatter post, this one funny as hell>

The Wyoming primary is Tuesday, August 16. She’s going to lose but the question is how badly? She’s served in Congress since 2017. She’s comfortable with the fact that she’s going to lose and is stepping into the role of martyr. “If the cost of standing up for the Constitution is losing the House seat, then that’s a price I’m willing to pay,” she told The New York Times in a recent interview. She has raised millions of dollars in contributions. Maybe she’ll run for president as an Independent in 2024 to shake things up for Trump.

If she wanted to be a part of the January 6 commission, so be it. She should have, however, insisted on getting some Republicans on the committee and making it a regular committee in hearings, not a partisan show production for the benefit of Democrats. She allowed Nancy Pelosi to win and that’s not acceptable. Pelosi was so desperate for Cheney to be on that committee that she would have cut a deal with Liz, if she bothered to ask. Instead she was content to be one of two Republicans and the other one was Adam Kinzinger.

Liz is about to join the ranks of those Republicans who voted for Trump’s impeachment and then lost their primary races for re-election.

Quote
Notably, of the other nine Republicans who voted to impeach Trump, four (Representatives Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Fred Upton of Michigan, Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio and John Katko of New York) chose not to seek reelection, three (Representatives Tom Rice of South Carolina, Peter Meijer of Michigan, and Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington state) have lost their primaries to Trump-backed challengers, and just two (Representatives Dan Newhouse of Washington state and David Valadao of California) will go on to the general election. - from Newsweak

Today, Real Clear Politics has Hageman up by 25.5 in the race.

Funny to think about. When Dick Cheney was Vice President from 2001-2009, the left hated on him. Now, they like Liz Cheney.

Liz Cheney's loss in Wyoming is Trump's biggest primary victory as he tries to purge the Republican Party of his critic

What a headline.  Everything (according to the moonbats) is all about Trump.  They think more of the man the he does of himself, and that's saying a lot.  The article, not marked as opinion, by the way, continues the same tone.

Quote
Former President Donald Trump strengthened his grip over the Republican Party on Tuesday evening with Rep. Liz Cheney's primary loss in Wyoming.

snip

Cheney, who's held Wyoming's sole congressional seat for five years, had been Trump's main target in his revenge plot to purge the Republican Party of members he deems disloyal to him
. She was the highest-ranking Republican to vote to impeach him over the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot and she's been one of his loudest critics since. As vice chair on the House committee investigating the Capitol attack, Cheney has pushed back on Trump's 2020 election lies and sought to cast him as a threat to the country. Her defeat in Wyoming delivers Trump his biggest primary victory this year.

Cheney had faced an uphill battle to hold on to her seat amid Trump's campaign to oust her from office and her lack of widespread support from Republicans in Wyoming and those in Congress.

snip

/quote]

emphasis mine

I think Trump could do more psychological damage to the Swamp and the Deep State and the moonbats by not running in 2024, instead working the "king maker" role the left so desperately wants to paint him in and get in a contest with Musk as the world's highest tier troll.

Cheney defined herself as Trump's opposition, and the people of Wyoming too k that to heart and to the ballot box. Liz, you are the weakest link. Goodbye.

Liz, you're fired!

Liz, pack up your rubber knives and go home.

TV show quips aside, is Cheney a real Wyoming resident? Or is she likely to prove herself a carpet-bagger and head for NYC or WashDC?

All of those were needless political suicides.

No one, Trump included, ever insisted that they like him.

But if they had kept in mind the preferences of their constituents, along with the idea that it's not good for a Republican to speak publicly negatively about another Republican, they would've had no problems.

But the urge to express a hate overpowered common sense.

A fact that Nebraska's own Ben Sasse will learn.

The Purge of Impeachment Republicans Is Nearly Complete

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2022/08/17/the-purge-of-impeachment-republicans-is-nearly-complete-n1621742

Quote
Four Republicans saw the writing on the wall and simply retired rather than go through a primary: Reps. Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio), Fred Upton (R-Mich.), John Katko (R-N.Y.), and, of course, Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), who is one of the two Republicans whom House Speaker Nancy Pelosi handpicked to sit on the notoriously biased January 6 Committee. Rep. Tom Rice (R-S.C.) lost his primary in June, and Rep. Peter Meijer (R-Mich.) lost his primary earlier this month to Trump-endorsed John Gibbs. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.) lost her primary last week, and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) went down in flames Tuesday.
...
The two survivors are Reps. David Valadao (R-Calif.) and Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.), who will both advance to the general election in November. If they both win their elections, that means just two of the ten House Republicans who supported impeaching Trump will remain in Congress in 2023. They can spare us their talking points about democracy, the rule of law, or “doing the right thing,” and they can spare us the rhetoric that Trump incited an insurrection. A recently released Harvard study has proven the narrative that the Capitol riot was an “insurrection” to be completely false. And yet the evidence of this has always been there. They weren’t doing the right thing; they made themselves pawns of the Democrats, and for that, they won’t be missed.

The other absent element to make that work - to borrow a term the leftist scum Propaganda media used to excess in the Bush 43 era - was about a dozen bushels of necessary gravitas. A linguini-spined RINO like Liz would need at least that much to grow out of Honest Abe's shadow.
