Liz Cheney needs to go; 'America First' trumps the past:
Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney is the past, not the future, of the Republican Party, and she should be removed from House leadership immediately.
In order for Republicans to win back the House in 2022, they must remain unified and laser-focused on their “America First” message. Instead of engaging a circular firing squad, they need to take aim at President Joseph R. Biden and call out his radical, progressive, transformative agenda.
They need to make sure everyone in the country knows about the crisis at the Southern border, the one that President Biden created and is ignoring because of his open-border policies. They need to fight for blue-collar jobs, including those in the fossil-fuel industry, which President Biden wants to eliminate. They need to broadcast their support for Israel, as the Biden administration looks to reengage and embolden Iran. They need to stand up for law and order and law enforcement in the face of the “defund the police” movement and Black Lives Matter. They need to fight to reopen our children’s schools and seek to eliminate critical race theory, which undermines the greatness of our nation.
What they can’t do is continue to squabble among themselves about former President Donald J. Trump. Mr. Trump is no longer president and everyone in the party has acknowledged that fact, including Mr. Trump who is dedicating his time recruiting and endorsing future “American First” candidates. Everyone in the party but Mrs. Cheney, that is. --->READ MORE HERE

Kevin McCarthy Caught on Hot Mic Saying He’s ‘Lost Confidence’ in Liz Cheney, Predicts Vote to Remove Her:
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was caught on a hot mic Tuesday saying he has “lost confidence” in Representative Liz Cheney.
“I think she’s got real problems,” McCarthy told host Steve Doocy off-air just before a Fox and Friends interview, according to a tape obtained by Axios.
“I’ve had it with … I’ve had it with her. You know, I’ve lost confidence. … Well, someone just has to bring a motion, but I assume that will probably take place,” the California Republican commented.
McCarthy seemed to suggest to Doocy that Cheney, the House conference chair, could be ousted from her position by a vote from the chamber’s Republican members.
The House leader’s comments came moments before he said on-air that he’d heard from fellow Congressional Republicans who are “concerned” about Cheney’s ability to perform in her function as a party leader. --->READ MORE HERE
