Liz Cheney, Who Lost Her Primary for Reelection by 36 Points, Says She Might Run Third Party to Stop Trump and the Republican Party

In related news, an obese five-year-old girl with dyspraxia just told me "I'm gunna bust you up, chief."

Liz Cheney, once a rising leader in the GOP who has become a crusader against Donald Trump, says she may soon be ready to forge a new third party -- or even run for president with one in 2024.

"I certainly hope to play a role in helping to ensure that the country has ... a new, fully conservative party," she told USA TODAY in an interview Monday about her new book, "Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning," out Tuesday. "And so whether that means restoring the current Republican Party, which ... looks like a very difficult if not impossible task, or setting up a new party, I do hope to be involved and engaged in that."

She said she also hasn't ruled out joining a bipartisan ticket in next year's election, like the one proposed by a group called No Labels, an independent campaign that promises to put both a Republican and a Democrat on the ballot.

"I think that the situation that we're in is so grave, and the politics of the moment require independents and Republicans and Democrats coming together in a way that can help form a new coalition, so that may well be a third-party option," she said.

Meanwhile, she is in the odd position of urging Republican voters to elect Democrats to the House and Senate, warning that Speaker Mike Johnson and his GOP caucus, beholden to Trump, she says, can't be trusted to certify the legitimate results of the next election.

"It's not a position that I've arrived at lightly," she said.

Cheney said she wouldn't run on the No Labels ticket if it seemed likely to play a spoiler role, helping to elect Trump − which is what many top Democratic and nonpartisan analysts warn. A third-party ticket could give voters who won't vote for Trump but aren't sold on the likely Democratic nominee, President Joe Biden, another place to go.


...

Her goal now is to shame Republican officeholders to stop being what she calls "enablers" and "collaborationists" of Trump, unwilling to say in public the criticism some deliver in private. She quotes Tennessee Rep. Mark Green, when members were being urged to sign on to unfounded objections to the electoral vote count in 2021, as "sheepishly" saying, "The things we do for the Orange Jesus.'"

Green's spokesperson has denied he made the comment.

She is brutal on then-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. Two days after the election, she reveals, he told her Trump had acknowledged to him that he knew he had lost. Three weeks after the Jan. 6 insurrection, when she challenged McCarthy for visiting Trump at Mar-a-Lago, he defended his visit by saying Trump's staff was worried because he was "really depressed" and "not eating."

Liz Cheney, please give us all of your dieting observations and advice.

Liz Cheney has declared war on the entire Republican Party, declaring that it's a "threat" to democracy if Republicans maintain their thin majority in the House.

What she means is that if no single candidate gets 270 electoral votes, the House votes for the president, state by state.

She wants to elect a radical leftwing Democrat Squad majority in the House just to avoid that thin possibility.

But she's a Real Conservative, you guys.

Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said a Republican majority in the House in 2025 would be a "threat," particularly if the 2024 election heads to the lower chamber for a vote.

Cheney said in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning that House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), who voted against certifying the 2020 election in two states, cannot remain in the role if the 2024 election comes before the House, particularly if the Republican nominee is former President Donald Trump.

"We're facing a situation with respect to the 2024 election where it's an existential crisis, and we have to ensure that we don't have a situation where an election that might be thrown into the House of Representatives is overseen by a Republican majority," Cheney said.

The process Cheney refers to is a "contingent election." Under the 12th Amendment, if no candidate earns a majority of 270 delegates during the general election, the House would vote on a president, and the Senate would vote on a vice president -- giving the party that holds a majority in one or both chambers a significant advantage.

When asked if she would prefer a Democratic majority in the House in 2025, Cheney drew comparisons to her morals as a Republican and how she thinks the party is behaving now.

"I believe very strongly in those principles and ideals that have defined the Republican Party. But the Republican Party of today has made a choice, and they haven't chosen the Constitution," the former congresswoman said. "And so I do think it presents a threat if the Republicans are in the majority in January 2025."

True conservatives all support radical Marxist progressive control of the country. Get it right, bigots.
