Liz Cheney Incinerates Ted Cruz: You’re ‘Posturing For The Secessionist Vote’

Ever since he was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 2012, Ted Cruz (R-TX) has been known as the most hated person on the upper chamber of Congress, even among members of his own party.

And now Cruz is picking yet another fight with a fellow Republican, but this time he chose the wrong person to go to war with.

Over the weekend on CNN, there was a discussion of who in the GOP might run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024. It included a mention of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who has been a critic of failed, one-term former President Donald Trump and his apologists. Here’s the video:

Cruz, who seems to have a pathological need to be a Twitter troll (despite that fact that he’s no good at it and usually winds up owning himself), couldn’t resist commenting on the CNN debate:

“Yes. It’s called the Democratic primary.”

 

Cheney was more than equal to the challenge from Cruz, cutting him to the quick with this reply:

“I know you’re posturing for the secessionist vote, Ted. But my party, the Republican party, saved the Union. You swore an oath to the Constitution. Act like it.”

And then Cheney got support from another Republican and even a Democrat, both from the House, who were only too happy to remind Cruz that he’s been a slavish sycophant for Trump despite the fact that the ex-president accused the senator’s father of being involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy and suggested that his wife, Heidi, is ugly.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who serves on the House Select Committee on the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection with Cheney, poured salt on Cruz’s social media wounds:

“Damn son Liz brought the heat on you!”

Cruz desperately tried to counter with this pathetic retort:

“These two need to hurry up and get their bottom-rated @msnbc show.”

Kinzinger responded:

“Senator, you’ve been given a huge position to lead and tell people truth. Yet you have squandered it on lies and abused the patriotism of those who trusted you. I will have zero regrets… will you?”

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) also blasted Cruz by mentioning him in a perfectly worded follow-up to Kinzinger’s tweet:

“Adam, if you want @tedcruz’s support you’re going to have to attack his wife.”

That led to this reminder for Cruz about what had just happened to him as a result of his childish attack on Cheney:

Yep. Burned Rafael right down to the Texas dirt he came from.

Joy Reid’s Nightmare Prediction About Donald Trump Will Absolutely Terrify You

On her show Friday evening, MSNBC host Joy Reid made a Halloween prediction that is certain to terrify anyone who cares about the future of this country and the Constitutional republic failed, one-term former President Donald Trump and his GOP minions have tried to destroy.

Wearing a witch costume, Reid warned that a return of Trump in the 2024 election would be an absolute nightmare, and she even laid out how fears things might happen in the next race for the White House:

“Just picture it, an even older, weirder Donald Trump buoyed by Republicans who game the voting system.”

Reid went on to explain that Trump would actually lose the election, and that’s when the things would take a turn for the worse. GOP governors and legislatures would ignore the will of the voters and install Donald as president:

“So Trump returns but he’s unconstrained because there are no more American democratic elections. With his own little puppet, puppet Kevin McCarthy as speaker, whom he can dangle and fling to his delight, and his his cruel wicked henchman grim reaper Mitch McConnell back in charge in the Senate … there is no stopping him.”

McConnell, Reid continued, would have refused to let President Biden fill any Supreme Court vacancies, but once Trump is back in power, the GOP would install another right-wing justice and cement a 7-2 majority:

“If you think it’s racist and fascist out here now, just wait until all of Trump’s monsters are unleashed. Picture the Proud Boys and the Three Percenters and the Boogaloo Boys with real power, Trump’s own personal militia, racist sheriffs and police free to commit untold violence against anyone they please, all in the name of Trump. The land ravaged, plowed for every drop for oil and coal until it all just burns.”

Anyone who wants to make sure this country doesn’t descend into authoritarianism and fascism needs to make sure and vote in every election at every level: Local, state, and national.

To borrow a phrase from Benjamin Franklin: We have a republic, but only if we can keep it.

Jon Stewart Warns: Trump Will Steal The 2024 Election With An ‘Administrative Coup’

Jon Stewart, former host of “The Daily Show,” is warning that everything is being put in place to make it easy for former President Donald Trump to steal the 2024 election with that he calls an “administrative coup.”

In an interview with David Remnick of the New Yorker, Stewart was asked:

“Trump proved himself a colossal liar and admirer of authoritarians, and his incompetence during the pandemic was what it was. January 6th was supported by him and pretty self-evidently in attempt to illegally reverse a democratic election. And yet he persists! He’s quite likely to run in 2024. But how do you feel about it?”

Stewart replied:

“Oh, I think he’s, he’s got it. Got a very good chance, and they’re, they’re smarter about it.

‘What I think they really learned from this exercise was there are really specific pivot points within the American electoral system. And those pivot points are generally the administration of elections run by partisans, but not ideologues. In other words, a lot of those, a lot of the real mechanics and logistics of elections are run by Democrats or Republicans, partisans, but they are administrative positions. If he can replace the administrative functionaries with ideologues, he’s removed almost all of the guard rails that stopped this present one.”

The next takeover by Trump, Stewart predicted, won’t be done with force:

“Forget about that, you know, they were going to storm the Capitol on January 6th and Mike Pence was going to reverse it in some dramatic, you know, ‘And on the finale of The Apprentice… That’s not how this is going to go.”

If and when it happens, Stewart told Remnick, democracy in the United States will be dead:

“It’s going to be an administrative coup, but it will be a democratic coup. So it won’t be a coup and it will bring about a kind of early-stage minority rule. The actual danger of what happened is that it exposed a fragility at a level that is not flashy or sexy or known. The environment is falling apart. Democracy is in peril. Need I go on? This, this, this pandemic, that’s not only endangering the health of people, but their mental health.”

Omarosa: If Trump Wants To Run In 2024 He ‘Needs To Come Clean About His Health’

Just last week, an arbitrator in New York ruled that failed, one-term former President Donald Trump’s nondisclosure agreement with ex-White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman was “vague, indefinite, and therefore void and unenforceable.”

 T. Andrew Brown, the arbitrator, said in his ruling:

“The Agreement effectively imposes on [Manigault Newman] an obligation to never say anything remotely critical of Mr. Trump, his family or his or his family members’ businesses for the rest of her life.”

Now free to speak her mind and tell anything she knows, Newman appeared on MSNBC to discuss the issue of whether or not Trump will run in 2024 with host Rev. Al Sharpton, and she quickly let it be known that there are many secrets the former president is keeping from the American people that need to be explored if indeed the ex-president does make another run for the White House.

Specifically, Newman said that if Trump does decide to seek a second term three years from now, he needs to come clean with voters:

“I think going into 2024, I’m really more concerned about the fact that Donald Trump hasn’t come forward and talked about his health. I don’t know if he will even be healthy enough to run in 2024. I think he needs to come clean to the American people about where he is on that before deciding to get into a very stressful and strenuous race for the White House.”

We know that Trump contracted COVID-19 while still president, and later learned from the New York Times that his lungs got so bad that doctors feared he would have to be placed on a ventilator and likely not survive if his condition got any worse. Doctors were also concerned that Trump would suffer organ failure as a result of the virus.

Additionally, Trump’s niece, Mary, noted that as a sufferer of asthma as a child, she could recognize the way Donald was struggling to breathe after he left Walter Reed and walked up the steps of the White House to the second floor.

Trump has yet to answer any questions about how bad his battle with COVID was, but he can expect those queries if he does seek to run in 2024, especially since he’d be 78 years old at the time.

There have also been rumors about alleged drug usage by Donald Trump, with many suggesting he was once addicted to amphetamines and may still use them to bolster his fading health.

Michael Cohen: Trump Won’t Run In 2024 Because He’s Terrified Of Being A ‘Two-Time Loser’

Failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump has been making a lot of noise lately about running for president again in 2024, saying he may have to run to save the country despite the fact that he almost destroyed it the last time he was in the White House.

But according to his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, Trump’s comments are little more than hot air.

Speaking with Business Insider, Cohen explained why Trump continues to make noise about a second run:

“His insatiable need for attention is one reason he continues to flaunt this disingenuous 2024 run. The other is he’s making more money doing that than anything he has ever done before.”

Cohen also noted that “the Donald is the greatest grifter in the history of American politics,” and will eventually come up with a “handful of reasons why he won’t run again and blame others for his decision.”

“He’ll say he’s not going to run again because of bipartisan hatred for him or because of the Democrats or because he doesn’t want to put his family through any more. He cannot stomach the notion of being a two-time loser, but he will continue to grift until the very last second.”

The most pathetic part of it all, Cohen said, is that Trump is “trying to retain some semblance of power, importance, and relevance, none of which he has.”

It’s all about the money for Donald Trump. He has massive legal bills to pay in order to try and stay out of prison and he wants to maintain the sort of lifestyle he’s grown accustomed to.
