It’s safe to say that, because of Donald Trump, the Republican Party still exists. Sure, some are saying he “tore” the party apart. But the fact remains that if it weren’t for his influence, Democrats would be enjoying a supermajority in Washington, right now.
Many congressmen owe their careers to Trump’s influence. That was true in 2018, when the media predicted a “blue wave” (never happened). And it’s true even in 2020, when once again, the left expected to dominate the election (also untrue).
Yet despite his actions to save the GOP, numerous D.C. insiders have abandoned him. They blamed him for the events of January 6 and are desperately trying to work their way back into the good graces of the D.C. swamp.
At least 10 Republicans we know of have turned against Trump. They voted in favor of an impeachment that lacked due process or even evidence. Leading the charge was Liz Cheney, who had openly accused Trump of “inciting violence,” despite no way to prove it.
Now, her own people have unanimously voted to condemn her actions.
The Republican Party Central Committee in Carbon County, Wyoming, has censured Republican Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) for her vote to impeach President Donald Trump.
“The censure resolution passed in a unanimous vote by the 45-member central committee,” The Washington Times reported. “It included a demand that Ms. Cheney appear before the committee to explain her actions.”…

After Cheney revealed she was in support of impeaching her own party’s president, Wyoming’s GOP was inundated with calls, emails, and text messages. Voters were outraged that a woman they elected to represent them was turning against their wishes to attack the president.
A censure is no small thing. Cheney will have to appear before their committee and answer for what she did. It will be something many Wyoming residents will be watching. A censure is a black mark on a congressman’s record, something that reveals they defied the will of the people and betrayed their trust.
We shouldn’t feel too sorry about Cheney. Her rhetoric after January 6 was in lockstep with the left-wing media. Her comments revealed her to be a rabid anti-Trump RINO. It’s no surprise that her state was shocked.
When your constituents vote for the president, in a 70-30 percent margin, you don’t attack him needlessly. Cheney missed this obvious lesson to say “everything… was his doing.” She joined the left (that had hated Trump from day one) to throw him under the bus. Perhaps she did this to save her own reputation in D.C. Perhaps she did this because she truly believed Trump was guilty.
Regardless of the reasons, she might be regretting right about now.
