Cher GOP,
Tumblr media
We are in a battle for the soul of the republican party.
This is not a question of right or wrong, this is not a question of us versus them.
In fact it’s not even a question. Upon entering Congress an oath is taken to protect our constitution from all threats both foreign and domestic.
And let’s be clear about one thing, the greatest domestic terrorist threat is one Donald J Trump, former disgrace and twice impeached President of the United States.
His cohorts, or as he likes to call them: his base primarily consists of far right extremist, white supremacists, white nationalist, and the like who have been deemed the greatest domestic terrorist threats.
We saw him insight the ultimate power grab and bring upon the darkest hours of our constitution‘s history.
The insurrection on January 6 will go down as a day in history never to forget. Had they been there A mere minutes earlier who knows the carnage we would’ve seen unfold on the 500+ members of Congress that were present including the entire succession chain to the presidency.
Make no mistake, I will not stand idly by as I watch fellow Republicans push the big lie and white wash The actions that took place on January 6.
Make no mistake, I will not stand idly by as my Republican counterparts continue to stoke racism and division amongst and already divided electorate. On the verge of removing Liz Cheney from power because she won’t peddle the big lie snd instead speaks.
And make no mistake, that I will not stop speaking out and fighting for what’s right because somebody has to do it or we all lose in complacency.
The GOP does not have to be the party of old white slightly racist out of touch men.
There’s a lot more to offer the republican party and it’s time we started to broaden our base to be more inclusive and diverse and to represent the country we live in today and in the future, instead of harboring what once was in the past.
Never again will we embrace slavery or Jim Crowe.
Never again will we embrace white supremacy or any of its groups with open arms.
Never again we allow white privilege and nationalistic ideologies go unchecked to the brink of losing the greatest democracy in the history of the world.
Never Again.
Consider this your call to arms.
You are the weapon.
Consider this your ultimate call to action.
You are the outcome.
Consider this your back against the wall.
You are on the other side.
consider this a cry for help from your country.
You are the only one who can answer the call.
And consider this a last call from your planet in crisis.
Will you answer for us all?
So don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Don’t say I never stood here before you.
You’ve been put on notice.
God Bless and God Bless America and our Troops.

House Republicans purged Liz Cheney from their leadership ranks Wednesday, a rapid fall for the Wyoming representative from one of the GOP’s most prominent political families.
The caucus voted during an internal party meeting on removing Cheney from her position as the third-highest ranking House Republican for her continued refusal to get in line and stop criticizing former President Donald Trump.
She was just one of 10 House Republicans to vote for Trump’s impeachment in January. She secretly orchestrated a January op-ed in The Washington Post from all 10 living former defense secretaries warning about Trump’s attempts to politicize the military.
And despite warnings and threats from her colleagues, she has continued to double down on her condemnation of the former president. On Tuesday night, she gave her last speech on the floor as the GOP conference chair, saying that “freedom only survives if we protect it.”
“Remaining silent and ignoring the lie emboldens the liar,” Cheney said in her defiant remarks. “I will not participate in that. I will not sit back and watch in silence while others lead our party down a path that abandons the rule of law and joins the former president’s crusade to undermine our democracy.”
In recent weeks, pundits and political writers have called Cheney “the conscience of Republicans,” a “martyr” and a “symbol of courage,” and have bemoaned “a party that lost its way.” Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called her “a leader of great courage, patriotism and integrity.”
But make no mistake ― Cheney helped bring the Republican Party to the place it is today. She, like many other Republicans, encouraged Trump or looked the other way until it was too late.
Republican politicians have a habit of inviting the most extreme elements into their house and then bemoaning their fringe friends as the party gets out of control. Former House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who made a name for himself with the hardball politics of the Newt Gingrich era, came to despise the tea party movement and the politicians it elected ― the Freedom Caucus and Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) ― even as he failed to rein in the movement’s most extreme positions and benefited from its rise.
Cheney is no different.
Until recently, Cheney was right there with the president ― even though he always made clear exactly who he was. In 2019, The New York Times said she was competing with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to see “who is Trumpier,” earning praise from the likes of ardent Trump backer and scandal-plagued Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.).

Republican after Republican on Wednesday repeatedly sought to downplay the violence of the Jan. 6 insurrection, with one Georgia lawmaker likening the mobs overwhelming Capitol Police and vandalizing Capitol offices to a “normal tourist visit.”
Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.) made the tourist comment, saying that calling what happened at the Capitol on Jan. 6 an insurrection “is a boldfaced lie.”
“Watching the TV footage of those who entered the Capitol and walked through Statuary Hall showed people in an orderly fashion staying between the stanchions and ropes taking videos and pictures,” the first-term lawmaker said. “You know, if you didn’t know the TV footage was a video from Jan. 6, you’d think it was a normal tourist visit.”

Republicans’ Overthrow of Liz Cheney Risks Worsening Their Headaches
Republicans’ Overthrow of Liz Cheney Risks Worsening Their Headaches
In two of the races for the most competitive Democratic-held Senate seats, Arizona and Georgia, as well as a contest for the seat Republicans may have the most difficulty holding, Pennsylvania, Republicans are worried about Mr. Trump’s potential to rally support behind a candidate who can’t win the general election. The fear for some in the party is that 2022 echoes 2010, when Republicans took…
