Liz Cheney and Meghan McCain Are Straight Up Trolling Kari Lake

Gabbard’s shift to the right is not surprising. Beyond appearing at CPAC this year, she has found a home in right-wing media for some time. There, she has focused less on bringing conservatives closer to her, and more on bringing herself closer to them—criticizing the impeachment inquiry into former President Donald Trump as “partisan,” complaining […]

Liz Cheney Had The Perfect Response To Kari Lake Losing Her Race In Arizona

It’s still an odd feeling cheering on Liz Cheney, the pro-waterboarding, anti-same-sex marriage daughter of one of the most notorious vice presidents in American history. She did, however, do at least one right thing: She called out former president Donald Trump for his role in the Jan. 6 riot, and she stuck by her guns, […]

Two Winners in Tuesday’s Election: Liz Cheney and Democracy

In reality, Democrats were most successful in the races where they clearly and consistently articulated the threat of Republican authoritarianism: John Fetterman and Josh Shapiro in Pennsylvania, Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire, Gretchen Whitmer and Jocelyn Benson in Michigan, Tony Evers in Wisconsin, Steve Simon in Minnesota, and Maggie Toulouse Oliver in New Mexico. Each emerged […]

Liz Cheney Endorses Democrat Tim Ryan in Close Ohio Senate Race

Here is the deleted tweet from @CaptClayHiggins, a member of @HomelandGOP. pic.twitter.com/2GRdhwiOvz — Steve Herman (@W7VOA) October 30, 2022 Ever the chaser of his father’s approval, Donald Trump, Jr. posted a crude photo of a hammer and men’s underwear on his Instagram, with the caption “Got my Paul Pelosi Halloween costume ready”—echoing Higgins’ anti-LGBTQ smear: […]

Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye.

Unlike many of its preceding iterations, this final hearing did not include any in-person witnesses. It did, however, offer up plenty of snippets of video and audio testimony. It felt at times like a “clips show” episode of an old sitcom, where scenes from earlier seasons are replayed to instill nostalgia for an old story, […]

Congress Is Racing to Coup-Proof the Next Presidential Election

The House and Senate bills are substantially similar, but there are a few critical differences. Both measures would clarify that the vice president has only a ministerial role on January 6, rather than unilateral power to accept or reject state-certified electoral votes. It was Trump attorney John Eastman who suggested that the vice president has […]

Cheney: Trump’s reported insistence he would stay in White House ‘affirms the reality of the danger’

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said in an interview that a report about former President Trump insisting that he would stay in the White House after losing the 2020 election “affirms the reality of the danger” of trying to overturn its results. A new book to be published next month by New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman reportedly […]

Liz Cheney’s Presidential Campaign Will Fail

Mitt Romney has stayed on Trump’s bad side and remained in office, a relative rarity among electeds who’ve given Trump consistent static. Several Republicans who have made anti-Trump arguments their mainstay have either been run out of town on a rail or took their own leave after recognizing that their fortunes had fallen by the […]

Jamie Raskin Vows That Liz Cheney Will “Follow Trump to the Gates of Hell”

Raskin argues that the value in such friendships lies in the way they can play a larger role in sustaining democracy. “Look, January 6 is as close to fascism in my lifetime, and I did some research about coups all over the world,” Raskin said. “Democracies fail because of the lack of forbearance and the […]

Liz Cheney’s Loss Is a Defeat for Conservatism

Hageman’s website situates the candidate solidly behind Trump on support for voter suppression (“We must put a stop to things such as blindly mailing ballots”), Russiagate (“the Russia hoax”), and imposing restrictions on immigration (“We are destroying our country’s sovereignty and squandering the future for our children and grandchildren”). Reagan, by contrast, signed reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act in 1982, called […]

Cable News? A Presidential Run? Here’s What Liz Cheney Might Do If (When) She Loses Reelection.

Ten years ago, when Cheney was in the midst of her post-Bush administration career, running the neoconservative think tank Keep America Safe with Kristol, she took the kind of job that was typical for a well-bred politico with ideas about national security and domestic policy that were far to the right of the center: She […]

The ‘Unborn’ Were Added to the Pledge of Allegiance at a GOP Rally

When some of the most prominent Republicans in Wyoming gathered together for a rally last weekend, they did what good patriots do: recited the Pledge of Allegiance.  But the leader of the pledge, well-known anti-abortion activist and former state lawmaker Marti Halverson, tacked some key words onto the end: “with liberty and justice for all, […]
