Liz Cheney Turns to Establishment Media to Save Herself from Political Defeat

Jacob Bliss 5 May 2021

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the Republican conference chairwoman, turned to the Jeff Bezos establishment media outlet Washington Post as the Republicans are set to oust her from leadership.

Cheney, an establishment Republican, authored an op-ed  for the Post Wednesday. She called the moment a turning point for Republicans. This comes as recent reports show Cheney is on the brink of being ousted by the rest of the Republican leadership.

Cheney brought up her public dispute with former President Donald Trump that has been at the forefront of her argument ever since she voted to impeach the president. The “Justice Department and multiple federal judges have suggested, there is good reason to believe that Trump’s language can provoke violence again,” Cheney wrote.

The Republican said, “the Republican Party is at a turning point,” and she wants everyone to choose a side as she continues to argue with the president’s intentions about the January 6 rally and the events on Capitol Hill that day. She believes part of Trump’s plan was to “unravel critical elements of our constitutional structure that make democracy work.” She continued to tout the confidence she had in the results of the election.

She said the path foreword for the Republicans is clear to her:


--- Quote ---    First, support the ongoing Justice Department criminal investigations of the Jan. 6 attack. Those investigations must be comprehensive and objective; neither the White House nor any member of Congress should interfere.

    Second, we must support a parallel bipartisan review by a commission with subpoena power to seek and find facts; it will describe for all Americans what happened. This is critical to defeat the misinformation and nonsense circulating in the press and on social media. No currently serving member of Congress — with an eye to the upcoming election cycle — should participate. We should appoint former officials, members of the judiciary and other prominent Americans who can be objective, just as we did after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The commission should be focused on the Jan. 6 attacks. The Black Lives Matter and antifa violence of last summer was illegal and reprehensible, but it is a different problem with a different solution.

    Finally, we Republicans need to stand for genuinely conservative principles, and steer away from the dangerous and anti-democratic Trump cult of personality. In our hearts, we are devoted to the American miracle. We believe in the rule of law, in limited government, in a strong national defense, and in prosperity and opportunity brought by low taxes and fiscally conservative policies.

Lady, you crapped in your mess kit, and it's suppertime.

There is an anti-Trump cult, too, and it has forgotten all about free and fair elections, regardless of who claims illegality.

You have forsaken the Constitution and violated your oath of office.

--- Quote ---Cheney's advice to daughter: 'Don't screw it up'
The Hill, May 3, 2019

Dick Cheney had this piece of advice for his daughter after Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-Wyo.) election to House leadership: “Don’t screw it up.”

Liz Cheney relayed the anecdote during an appearance on Rep. Sean Duffy’s (R-Wis.) “Plaidcast” podcast, saying the former vice president offered the advice while visiting on the day of her election as conference chair.

“It was really special for me to have him there,” she said. “And I did ask his advice — and he's warmer and fuzzier than his public persona — but the advice he gave was pretty vintage Dick Cheney. He said, ‘Liz, just don't screw it up.’ ”
