Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), chair of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, is rounding up support to boot Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger from the Republican caucus.
Odds are neither one will serve past early 2023. Cheney is down by 23 points against a rock and New Jersey is looking to eliminate Kinzinger’s district. Neither one are real Republicans anyway. I know, I certainly won’t miss them, will you?
Booting them from the caucus is anything but symbolic. First of all, they will lose all of their committee assignments unless they join the Democratic party. Secondly, they will be unable to spy for Nancy Pelosi and thirdly, it guarantees that both will be defeated in 2022 since neither can run as Republicans.
Both Cheney and Kinzinger have predicted the end of the Trump era in the United States. It reminds me of popular graffiti about the philosopher Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche. “God is Dead” Nietzsche. Then after his death, the graffiti read, “Nietzsche is Dead” God. Let’s see who is still in the political theater in 2024 and who does not make the cut.
My money is on Trump, either as a candidate or as a kingmaker. He will be effective either way.
Biggs is circulating a letter among Republican House members and collecting signatures until he reaches the magic number needed to boot the traitorous pair. The thing is he is looking for Kevin McCarthy to do the booting or at least support the cause but McCarthy needs to go, too.
We also need Mitch McConnell and Ben Sasse gone as well. We need real conservatives who will fight alongside Trump and not fighting against him. This time, we have to do it right.
“This proposal is not because of a policy or political difference, but because some members have chosen to work with the Democrats to investigate and potentially remove Republican Members from the House,” a draft copy of the letter says. “Republican Conference meetings are an opportunity for elected House Republicans to come together and strategize the most effective path to push back on the radical policies of Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats.”
“Many of the coming discussions will likely revolve around our defense against the Democrats’ perpetuation of the false narrative that January 6th was an insurrection and how to protect our own from their legally questionable investigative methods,” the letter continues. “Congresswoman Cheney and Congressman Kinzinger are two spies for the Democrats that we currently invite to the meetings, despite our inability to trust them.”
“Speaker Pelosi is perpetuating the false narrative that House Republicans are responsible for the events that took place at the Capitol on January 6th. She has continued to brand the events as an insurrection, despite the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation testifying the events do not meet that threshold,” Biggs says. “[Pelosi] needs publicity and narrative. She needs to demonize Republicans. And this Select Committee is her path for doing so.”
