The RINO Establishment just can’t accept defeat.
They still think they can snatch control of the GOP from the America First wing.
And now one of their Never-Trump heroes is planning to run for President in 2024.
Liz Cheney is famous for two things: 1. Being the daughter of the most anti-liberty Vice President in American history, Dick Cheney, and 2. Voting to impeach President Trump, and vocally trashing him every opportunity she gets.
As such, Cheney is used to being in the spotlight, and she craves it.
Now, she wants to take the next step, and run for President in 2024, to try and transform the GOP back into the globalist authoritarian party it was under the Bush-Cheney administration.
According to the New York Post, “House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney is not ruling out a potential presidential bid, The Post has learned.”
Cheney also raised approximately $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2021, making her one of the top 5 fundraisers in all of Congress among Republicans.
These donations came almost entirely from big-money special interest donors who support her big-government agenda, as well as crossover donations from Democrats who are happy with her trashing of President Trump.
Cheney has been relentless in her criticism not only of Trump, but of anyone who disagrees with her authoritarian agenda.
Back in February, she said on national TV that Trump “should not be playing a role in the future of our party.”
She reiterated that in a press conference with Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, saying once again “I don’t believe he should be playing a role in the future of the party.”
In addition to that, in 2020 she donated to the primary opponent of Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), one of the most conservative members of Congress.
She did this because he opposes her agenda to spy on all Americans and bomb innocent civilians around the globe, and she thinks anyone who gets in the way of that agenda should be crushed.
Most Republican voters have no use for Liz Cheney. Her approval rating is almost 3 times lower with Republicans than with Democrats, coming in at a meager 16% favorable rating, according to FiveThirtyEight.
However, the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives had no problem reinstalling her as Conference Chair, even after she had voted to impeach President Trump.
That is because many of them receive donations from the same special interest defense contractors that Liz Cheney is owned by. They stand with the Military-Industrial Complex and the Cheney family, more than they stand with their own constituents.
Whether or not Cheney can make any headway in a Republican Presidential primary remains to be seen. Her strategy will be to raise obscene amounts of money from special interests and try to use that money to buy votes and trick people.
However, it seems unlikely that anyone with a 16% approval rating could win an election, so she will have an uphill battle, particularly if she faces up against popular Republicans like Ron DeSantis or Rand Paul.
