It’s no secret that, despite being one of the most successful conservative presidents in our lifetime, Trump was not entirely supported by the GOP. Plenty of so-called Republicans opposed him from day one. Only a few, however, were willing to openly defy him over his years in office.

Since Congress certified the 2020 election results, it appears these RINOs have comes out to show their true colors. In addition to administration staff resigning in a huff, plenty of D.C. Republicans have drawn knives to stab in Trump’s back.

They claim it’s because they believe he was behind the events of January 6. But it’s far more likely they never supported his America First agenda and are finally able to revert back to their globalist ways.

Now, as Democrats push for impeachment, House Republican Conference chairwoman Liz Cheney is back the effort. So, some of her colleagues want her out.

House Freedom Caucus Chair Andy Biggs (R-AZ) and Rep. Matt Rosendale (R-MT) called for Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WI) ouster as the House Republican Conference chairwoman Tuesday night after she came out in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump…

“When Representative Cheney came out for impeachment today, she failed to consult with the Conference, failed to abide by the spirit of the rules of the Republican Conference, and ignored the preferences of Republican voters,” Rosendale said in a statement Tuesday.

Rosendale and Biggs used very strong language to condemn Cheney’s last-ditch effort to save her own skin. But her turncoat actions should not be a huge shock to most. The daughter of Dick Cheney, one of the most notorious RINOs in American history, never backed Trump’s America First agenda. Like many others connected to the Bush era, she found ways to oppose Trump since he entered office.

The facts do not stand with Cheney. Even if the House manages to pass their one article of impeachment, it stands no chance in the Senate. The Senate will not reconvene until January 19, one day before the Inauguration. Will the Senate bother to vote on impeachment of a president no longer in office? Unlikely. Even if they do, they will not have the 67 votes needed to convict.

So, is Cheney doing this because she thinks it is the right thing? That Congress can actually remove Trump and prevent him from running again? Or because she thinks this will put her in the good graces of the D.C., which never supported Trump and wanted him gone for years?

Honestly, you’ll have to make up your mind on this one. But it doesn’t bode well for the Wisconsin representative, after two key leaders in her conference called her out. Republicans by and large, continue to support Trump, including the millions who voted for him. To turn on him now doesn’t seem to be the “right” thing to do, but the thing that could protect a person’s career.

And those kinds of moves never work well for Republicans.

It’s a new year for Nancy Pelosi, a new term as Speaker of the House. Some say it’s her last time at the gavel. You’d think a seasoned leader at her final term in this prestigious role would be eager to lead the entire House—reaching across the aisle to help all Americans.

It doesn’t look that way. Ever since the election, Pelosi has seemed even more bitter and vengeful than ever before. The media on numerous occasions has criticized her for what she’s said or done—specifically for delaying COVID relief over the Summer last year.

Although her party has won a slight majority in Congress, with a Democrat soon to take the White House, Pelosi is determined to burn whatever bridges she finds. Why not be happy, Nance, that Biden is president? Why waste the first few weeks of the new year—and his administration—trying to impeach or remove Donald Trump?

We don’t have the answers to those questions. But what we do know is that few Americans view the speaker favorably.

By wide margins, voters view House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) unfavorably, according to a new Just the News poll with Scott Rasmussen…

Fifty-five percent of respondents have an unfavorable opinion of Pelosi, versus just 34% with a favorable opinion…

Congress rarely gets high marks on opinion and approval polls. That’s because the public blames them most of the time when the government can’t get its act together. It’s easy for a presidential administration to be on the same page and advance an agenda. But Congress never seems to be able to compromise, find solutions, and get the job done.

And that’s largely Nancy Pelosi’s fault. As the Speaker of the House, it has been her job to negotiate with Republicans, and motivate her party to act. Instead, over the two years, she’s divided the country more than anyone else. She impeached Trump (and apparently wants to do that again). She tore up his SOTU address in 2020. She refused to replenish the job-saving PPP. And she delayed additional COVID relief.

That’s just for starters. Recently, she went to the Pentagon to look for ways to use the military to strip Trump of power. It was such a shocking move that even the MSM, usually the left’s cheerleaders, were appalled. ABC News even condemned the action as “extraordinary.”

Polling for conservative leaders who more or less supported the president remained steady in this poll. But Pelosi and McConnell—both leaders who opposed cooperation and progress—are in the weeds.

You’d think Pelosi would be able to learn from her mistakes, by now. The woman is 80 years old and has served in Congress for decades. Yet he continues to ignore the writing on the wall and push an agenda that few in American want.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see these numbers get even lower in the coming months.
