Liz Cheney, regime changer.

This morning the U.S. House of Representatives will vote to impeach Trump a second time.

They should impeach him.

They should arrest him and his co-conspirators.

Early on there was debate over whether the coup attempt was the rogue work of some inept boogaloo boys. The evidence is mounting that the coup conspiracy reaches to the highest levels of government, Congressional members and to those in the White House including the President.

A Confederate Insurrection.

I have heard some praise for the fact that Republicans like Congresswoman Liz Cheney have decided to vote for impeachment.

I am not so full of praise.

Cheney is part of that minority of Republicans who for the last four years have wished for a more aggressive foreign policy from Trump.

Like in the Bush days.

Esquire’s political writer, Charles Pierce, reminds us that Liz Cheney is the spawn of Satan – Dick Cheney.

They never liked Trump. Some split off to become Never-Trumpers and Lincoln Republicans and some even supported Biden.

And when Biden won the overwhelming vote, they rejected Trump’s claims of fraud and Trump’s attempt to illegally overturn the results of the popular and electoral vote.

Apparently Cheney and her comrades are in favor of illegal regime change everywhere but here at home.

Liz is like her father Dick Cheney.

Dick organized the letter signed by all the living former Secretaries of Defense warning the military not to interfere in the transfer of power. Dick and his neo-conservative allies long for a restoration of the early 2000s Bush/Clinton foreign policy of regime change and so-called nation building.

What the past four years has revealed is a deep split in the Republican Party over past wars like those in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of those regime changer neo-Conservatives have left the Republican Party entirely and hooked up with Biden’s administration.

Despite being given a high level job in the minority Congressional Republican caucus, Cheney’s folks have mainly been on the outside looking in.

Bill Kristol, David Frum, Jamie Kirchick, Steve Schmidt, and Max Boot – all supporters of a regime change foreign policy during the Bush years – have all distanced themselves from Trump and want to restore the Republican Party to the old days, start something new or join with the neo-cons inside the Democratic Party.

I can’t see how progressives have any interest in their success.

  1. This happens to be true. Liz Cheney is trying to be the anti-trump choice in the gop. She isn’t good. She is very bad. Shouldn’t praise her anti-trump actions without reminding about her support of the unjustified war in Iraq under George W. Bush.

  2. She comes late to the table, and she won’t stay long. She’s an unexpected guest who isn’t comfortable going home tonight. I’m fine with that; we all know the score.

  3. “You have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero …”

    History will remember Donald Trump as most inept among evil mass murderers.
