Trump endorses Stefanik’s bid to oust Cheney from GOP leadership

Former president Donald Trump on Wednesday endorsed Representative Elise Stefanik (R., N.Y.) to replace Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wy.) as chair of the House Republican Conference as party leadership has reportedly sought to oust the Wyoming congresswoman from her leadership role in recent days.

“Liz Cheney is a warmongering fool who has no business in Republican Party Leadership,” Trump said in a statement on his website. “We want leaders who believe in the Make America Great Again movement, and prioritize the values of America First. Elise Stefanik is a far superior choice, and she has my COMPLETE and TOTAL Endorsement for GOP Conference Chair. Elise is a tough and smart communicator!”

Stefanik thanked Trump for his support in a tweet on Wednesday, adding, “We are unified and focused on FIRING PELOSI & WINNING in 2022!”

National Review reports that Stefanik has also received support from the top two Republicans in the House for her bid to replace Cheney, a longtime critic of Trump and other conservatives. A spokeswoman for House GOP Whip Steve Scalise (R., La.) said Wednesday that the No. 2 Republican in the House “has pledged to support [Stefanik] for 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,” Scalise’s spokeswoman, Lauren Fine, said in a statement.

The renewed push to remove Cheney, the third-ranking GOP lawmaker in the House, from her leadership post comes after she told the New York Post last week that while she believes Republicans could take back the presidency in 2024, she thinks lawmakers who supported Trump’s effort to overturn the 2020 election results should be disqualified from running.

Cheney has drawn the ire of her Republican colleagues repeatedly since she voted in favor of Trump’s second impeachment but previously survived a secret ballot the House GOP conference conducted in February over whether to keep her in her post.  The conference voted 145–61 to keep Cheney in her leadership role at that time.

“This is about whether the Republican Party is going to perpetuate lies about the 2020 election and attempt to whitewash what happened on January 6,” Cheney spokesman Jeremy Adler said May 4. “Liz will not do that. That is the issue.”

(No, Jeremy, the issue is Liz Cheney’s leftist worldview and lack of veracity.)

Cheney, a daughter of Dick Cheney, who was George W. Bush’s vice president and before that a Wyoming congressman, seemed to have almost unlimited potential until this year. Her career began listing after she was among just 10 House Republicans to back Trump’s impeachment for inciting supporters to storm the Capitol on Jan. 6. The House GOP could hold a second vote to oust Cheney in the near future.

Donald Trump Launches His Own Communication Platform, Bypassing the Tech Dictocracy

Donald Trump launches a new website

After months of being banned from social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, former President Donald Trump this week launched a new communications platform where he will be able to communicate directly with his followers.

The new platform, called “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump,” can be found at www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk. Users can see posts, images, and videos from Trump and share them to social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. (We don’t know if the media dictocracy will ban such posts or the posters.) The site currently does not yet have a way for users to comment or interact with the posts on the platform.

Trump has already added a few posts to the site, including a video introducing users to the new platform that promises to be “straight from the desk of Donald J. Trump.”

The technology appears to be powered by Campaign Nucleus— the “digital ecosystem made for efficiently managing political campaigns and organizations,” created by his former campaign manager, Brad Parscale, according to Fox News.

“President Trump’s website is a great resource to find his latest statements and highlights from his first term in office, but this is not a new social media platform,” senior advisor Jason Miller told Fox News. “We’ll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future.”

President Trump’s website was launched May 4, the day before Facebook’s “oversight board” decided to continue suspending Trump from Facebook and Instagram for at least another six months.

Facebook moved to block Trump “indefinitely” after the Jan. 6 riot in the U.S. Capitol, with CEO Mark Zuckerberg saying that they “believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great.”

Trump is permanently banned from Twitter for daring to attempt to counter the Democratic Party narrative.

The President of Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad and Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei still are allowed to post on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

UPDATE: President Trump was discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center the evening of Oct. 5 and returned to the White House. Biden’s stopped asking to measure the blinds.

Washington, D.C. – White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows confirmed on Friday morning President Donald Trump was experiencing mild symptoms from the coronavirus after his positive test announced earlier.

“The president does have mild symptoms,” Meadows said Oct. 2 to reporters outside the White House.

According to Breitbart News, Meadows said that the White House continued to follow safety protocols and that the president was working from the residence of the building,

“The American people can rest assured that we have a president that is not only on the job, will remain on the job and I’m optimistic that he will have a very quick and speedy recovery,” Meadows said.

The Chief of Staff said that doctors were monitoring the president’s health and that they would provide an update later in the day.

“I think the great thing about this president is not only is he staying committed to working very hard on behalf of the American people,” he said. “His first question to me was how is the economy doing, how are the stimulus talks going on Capitol Hill.”

On Twitter, First Lady Melania Trump also revealed that she was experiencing mild symptoms of the virus.

The president had been scheduled to visit Tucson and Flagstaff, Arizona, on Oct. 5 and Oct. 6, respectively. There is no official word on whether surrogates will continue the president’s campaign for re-election in his absence.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post was evidently rooting for Trump’s death. In an opinion tweet, since deleted, the Wapo said “Imagine what it will be like to never have to think about Trump again.”
