past president named Trump Tuesday in the state’s primary, defeating Rep. Liz Cheney, a Republican who put the nation above the punitive, pathetic treasonous Trump and his many seditious acts.
In Alaska, however, Sen. Liz Cheney collected more votes than the Trumpite and former Gov. Sarah Palin, who quit her job and abandoned her state in search of political fame that was in Washington, DC. finished second in her bid to become the single representative in the House. The races continue with Murkowski facing the woman she beat Tuesday night and Palin has two opponents who want to keep her out of Congress and, with luck, out of their lives.
Such is the state of politics in America, a struggling nation torn by partisanship driven by a con man who served as an ineffective and conniving president from 2017-2021 before losing to Joe Biden in the November 2000 election.
The power Trump has over Republicans is proof of the greed, selfishness, fear, and hate of too many voters who would rather serve a crook because he is a Republican while they don’t care about the damage he has and will continue to inflict on America.
“Over 70% of the state of Wyoming voted Republican in the last presidential election, and she turned right around and voted against us,” said Jackson Hotel Manager Dan Winder told the Associated Press. “She was our representative, not her own.”
That’s a load of pure, partisan bullshit. Like Trump, Winder is a damn liar. Yes, Cheney voted for the impeachment of Trump and serves as co-chair of the select committee that is investigating his many crimes. But House records show she voted with Trump and the Republicans 93% of the time while serving in Congress and for the state almost 100% over the years.
Like reasonable, sensible Americans, however, she came to realize he was a con man, crook, and fraud who looted the U.S. treasury for his personal benefit. He illegally kept Top Secret and sensitive documents at his estate at Mar-a-Lago in Florida and is under investigation in Washington, Atlanta, and Manhattan for tax fraud and more.
I can call out the flaky, extremist, hardcore right-wing Republicans because I worked for them while in Congress from 1981 through 1987 as an operative for the group’s Congressional, Senate and Committee operations and taught, for five years at the Campaign Academy operated by GOP. I saw power-mad Newt Gingrich use a promise of term limits that he never used to deploy to help put the party in control of Congress during the 1994 elections, the start of the downward slide of his party into a toxic dump of corruption, ethics violations, and criminality.
That was the year I walked away from politics and anything that claimed to be Republican. It was the year I also quit drinking and joined Alcoholics Anonymous and haven’t been near a drink for 28 years, two months, and 12 days (as of this writing). Interestingly, Gingrich’s shoddy period as Speaker of the House came to an abrupt end when he was caught in ethics violations on a personally-promoting book deal and an adulterous affair with a House committee staffer who is now his latest wife.
Anyone with an IQ of an average plant should recognize a con and a crook like the corrupt Donald J. Trump. Obviously, Dan Winder doesn’t qualify. Neither do the majority of questionable GOP voters in Wyoming. Fortunately, Liz Cheney and others who put the safety, security, and love of this country put their politics aside and will continue to work to serve justice, not the corruption of a documented and proven liar like Trump until the Select Committee completes its work before the end of the year.
Will that work when Trump runs for another shot at the presidency in 2024? Let’s hope and pray that cannot happen. If America is still a land of laws and justice, he and others who serve his criminal intent will be felons by then and behind bars.
