House Minority Whip Steve Scalise has become the latest member of the GOP to back the ouster of Rep. Liz Cheney from her position as GOP Conference Chair.

As The Hill reports:

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) in a statement is supporting the ouster of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from her leadership position, calling for Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) to replace her as House Republican Conference chair.

“House Republicans need to be solely focused on taking back the House in 2022 and fighting against Speaker Pelosi and President Biden’s radical socialist agenda, and Elise Stefanik is strongly committed to doing that, which is why Whip Scalise has pledged to support her for Conference Chair,” Scalise’s spokesperson, Lauren Fine, said in a statement.

The statement was first reported by Punchbowl News.

Cheney is in hot water with her colleagues for repeatedly criticizing former President Trump. She survived an effort to oust her from the third-ranking House GOP position earlier this year, but with Scalise and his boss, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), now backing the effort, she seems assured of leaving her position.

With more and more GOP house members publican coming out in opposition to the extremely anti-Trump Cheney, is it only a matter of time before she is finally voted out of her position? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Not sure why she is even in the Republican party to begin with. She might as well switch to the Demonrats, that’s who she identifies with anyway.

At the very least, Cheney had some executive ability, though I wish our leaders would cease placing foreign countries ahead of American interests.

You’re starting to describe the Washington political environment. These people are all card-carrying liberals. The only “Republicans” that existed within our Halls of Power have been removed, most recently by a coup. The notion that our government is limited by their Constitutional parameters is now a fond memory. With the advent of ‘tailored’ government beneficiaries (Women, Weirdos, Blacks, Illegal Aliens and Jews) dominating the polls, these tyrants are able to dictate anything they wish to their compliant constituency, and we’re supposedly unable to address that fact, lest we’re pigeonholed as “Haters”, “Nazis”, “Extremists” and “Xenophobes” from all angles. The stupidity of liberals will sink America into a subservient, Globalist-administered region of impoverished, oppressed, disenfranchised rabbles, who’ll still be at each other’s throats while we starve and perish. See VENEZUELA!

This is still a dog and pony show. These people all meet at the bar after their sessions to compare notes on how to continue screwing Americans. Partisanship was not an element of our Constitutional form of government. In fact, the Framers made sure which powers were granted to our representatives; Repealing our Bill of Rights was not one of those powers. Why we’re sitting here like fish in a barrel waiting for yet another announcement–nay, a proclamation–that Numb Nuts is going to take our weapons, jack up our taxes and get us into another conflict confounds me. Somehow, because there’s a “Majority” party ruling over the teeming masses, we’re supposed to throw up our arms and allow these people free rein to dismantle our borders and our Bill of Rights, while we wait until the mid term elections to hopefully reverse this trend. The 1st and 2nd Amendments were provisioned for Americans to remedy the expansion of tyranny in our nation.
