House Republicans ousted Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from her leadership post Wednesday because she continues to challenge former president Donald Trump over his false claims about election fraud and his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, according to several GOP members.
The voice vote to remove her as chair of the House Republican Conference underscored that the party will not tolerate disagreements with Trump, whose active support many argue is needed for the party to win the House majority in the 2022 midterm elections.
Using a voice vote was a nice touch to avoid a secret ballot where the 10 members (tops) who were against removing Cheney could quietly express their opinions and perhaps embarrass leadership by not showing a united front. Kevin McCarthy may be weak and dumb, but he’s not that weak and dumb.

In summary, the Republican Party is gearing up to steal elections, and because of a few timid/stupid Democrats in the Senate who venerate a Jim Crow era parliamentary rule, we won’t even pass a law (HR1) for Republicans to ignore while they do it.
