(FreedomWire.org) – Former U.S. Representative Liz Cheney faced boos and chair-turning from graduates as she delivered the commencement address at Colorado College on Sunday.

Despite repeating her strong criticisms of former President Trump, Cheney avoided discussing his 2024 reelection campaign or her own political future.

The Wyoming Republican condemned her House Republican colleagues for their insufficient efforts to counter Trump’s claims of a ‘rigged’ 2020 election. Cheney urged the graduating students to remain steadfast in pursuing the truth.

Many dissenting voices in the audience expressed their disapproval by booing and turning their chairs away from the stage when she spoke. One graduate displayed a message on their cap that read: “Why listen to a racist, imperialist, transphobic, warmonger?? Your hate is loud.”

Cheney’s speech touched on familiar themes she has emphasized since leaving office in January, including her involvement in the House committee investigating the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol and her repeated arguments that Trump is a ‘threat to democracy.’

The former representative referenced Cleta Mitchell, a former adviser to Trump, who allegedly warned about polling places on college campuses and the ease of voting at a Republican National Committee retreat. Cheney emphasized the importance of voting as a means to counter those who allegedly seek to undermine the foundations of democracy and the rule of law.

Drawing from her own experience as a political science student at Colorado College, where a Bible verse inscription stated, “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free,” Cheney discussed the pressure she faced regarding the 2020 election and the January 6 riot. She argued that she had to choose between lying and losing her position in the House leadership.

Cheney’s three terms in office propelled her to the No. 3 GOP leadership position in the House, but she was subsequently removed from that role after voting to impeach Trump.

Speculation has arisen about her potential entry into the 2024 GOP presidential primary since leaving office, given her speaking engagements and public stance against Trump. While she did not address her plans during the commencement speech, Cheney has previously stated that she remains undecided about running for president.

Cheney’s vocal attacks on Trump has attracted the attention of a national network of donors and Trump critics who may support her in a White House bid. A super PAC supporting her candidacy has remained active and recently aired attack ads against Trump in New Hampshire.

Following her departure from office and her replacement by a Trump-backed Republican, Cheney was appointed as a professor at the University of Virginia and has authored a memoir titled “Oath and Honor,” scheduled for release in November.

Cheney’s speaking engagements will apparently continue, including an upcoming appearance scheduled at the Mackinac Policy Conference in Michigan on Thursday. It remains to be seen if any attendees will turn their backs on her then.

(FreedomWire.org) – On Wednesday Hillary Clinton got destroyed on Twitter by the “Taliban Public Relations Department.”

Hillary tweeted, ” Girls in Afghanistan should be going back to school tomorrow, but the Taliban is only allowing boys to be educated.”

In response, the Taliban account responded with a vicious roast that invoked Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump, as wells as her husband Bill’s infamous extramarital affairs.

“You spent $700m in our country trying to teach women and girls that there are 140 different genders,” the Taliban tweeted. “No wonder you lost to the orange gangster. You left a huge mess behind in Afghanistan, just like your husband did with that dress.”

They had other funny Tweets too:

“Our administration has yet to decide who to support in the upcoming US election, and we believe our decision will be decisive. 

“On the one hand, there’s the orange gangster, who can be an unpredictable partner, and then there’s sleepy Joe, who has never let us down.”

“Our glorious Air Force has been put on high alert to deal with the incoming storm and to also mock the naysaying imperialists who said “they can only pilot camels”.

“Thankfully this natural dust storm is not the result of Uzbekistan inexplicably obtaining thermonuclear weapons.”

In another tweet, they point out that after 20 years, the Taliban is again in charge of Afghanistan.

“The American cowboys spent 20 years and trillions of dollars in Afghanistan replacing the Taliban with the Taliban.”

Two Taliban members were interviewed by Vice and they said they are bored and just sit on Twitter all day.

One said, “The Taliban used to be free of restrictions, but now we sit in one place, behind a desk and a computer 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Life’s become so wearisome; you do the same things every day. Being away from the family has only doubled the problem.”

Another said, “I sometimes miss the jihad life for all the good things it had. In our ministry, there’s little work for me to do. Therefore, I spend most of my time on Twitter. We’re connected to speedy Wi-Fi and internet. Many mujahedin, including me, are addicted to the internet, especially Twitter.”

(FreedomWire.org) – Former Vice President Mike Pence unloaded on former President Donald Trump at the Gridiron Club Dinner in Washington, D.C. on Saturday and said history will hold Trump accountable.

Pence said, “President Trump was wrong. I had no right to overturn the election. And his reckless words endangered my family and everyone at the Capitol that day, and I know history will hold Donald Trump accountable.

“Make no mistake about it, what happened that day was, was a disgrace. And it mocks decency to portray it any other way. It was not, as some would have you believe, tourists visiting the Capitol.

“Tourists don’t injure 140 police officers by sightseeing. Tourists don’t break down doors to get to the speaker of the House.”

Pence made some jokes too:

“I read that some of those classified documents they found at Mar-a-Lago were actually stuck in the president’s Bible,” Pence joked about Trump. “Which proves he had absolutely no idea they were there.”

“I mean, he’s never called me a low-energy moron. Not yet. Honestly, I learned a lot working beside Donald Trump, like about subpoenas for instance.”

“I always wanted to be the bad boy, the rebel type, the hell-raiser. You know, someone like Mitt Romney,” Pence joked.

Pence said of the news media:

“I don’t deny that you infuriate me, and I’m sure I infuriate you, but I genuinely value what you do to keep us a democracy.

“For what you do to preserve and strengthen this great democracy, you have my heartfelt thanks, and I know the thanks of a grateful nation. Thanks for what you do to preserve freedom.”

(FreedomWire.org) – Nikki Haley recently appeared on Fox News and teased what seems to be an inevitable run for president in 2024. That would pit the former South Carolina governor against Donald Trump, for whom she served as UN Ambassador from 2017-2018.

While teasing a possible presidential run, Haley took a gentle jab at Donald Trump, with whom Haley has had a historically supportive relationship.

“Look, it is time for a new generation. It is time for more leadership,” Haley told Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Friday. “It is time for the fact that we really start to take our country back.”

“We cannot have another term of Joe Biden,” she continued. “And we have to remember, too – we have lost the last seven out of eight popular votes for president. It is time that we get a Republican in there that can lead and that can win a general election.”

Hannity pressed the former South Carolina governor on “policy differences” she has with Trump’s “Make America Great Again, America First agenda.”

Haley refused to take the bait, replying, “Well, I had a great working relationship with him. I consider him a friend.”

“You know, most of the policies that he did, I totally agree with,” she added. “There’s going to be other Republicans in the race, most of them are my friends.”

“Let the best woman win,” she quipped.

Haley declined to announce her candidacy in front of Hannity’s studio audience, but she discussed the possibility of running in an exclusive interview with Fox News’s Bret Baier.

“Well I’m not going to make an announcement here, but when you’re looking at a run for president, you look at two things,” Haley told Baier. “You first look at, does the current situation push for new leadership. The second question is, am I that person that could be that new leader, that, yes, we need to go in a new direction. And can I be that leader? Yes, I think I can be that leader.”

With Baier, Haley appeared more determined.

“I was as governor, I took on a hurting state with double-digit unemployment and made it the beast of the southeast,” she said of her experience.

“As ambassador, I took on the world when they tried to disrespect us. And I think I showed what I’m capable of at the United Nations,” she said. “So, do I think I could be that leader? Yes.”

(FreedomWire.org) – Special Counsel John Durham is reportedly nearing the end of his investigation into the Russia hoax witch hunt against former President Donald Trump.

Conservative commentator John Solomon believes Durham will round out his investigation by going after the FBI.

Russian-born analyst Igor Danchenko, the key source for the unverified Steele dossier, that alleged ties between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia, was arrested by federal agents last year. Solomon explained that he believes Durham is dealing with “two buckets.”

In one “bucket,” there are the last two indictments against officials who were connected to Hillary Clinton and their plan to feed the FBI false information about Trump-Russia conspiracies. He said the other “bucket” focuses on the FBI and whether agents knowingly mislead the FISA court to obtain warrants to spy on members of Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“But Durham developed really significant evidence that red flags, the stop-now warning signs go all the way back to August when Bruce Orr, in 2016 came to the FBI and said Christopher Steele is dumping a dossier. He hates Trump. He’s hired by Hillary Clinton and most of his information is raw and uncorroborated,” he said.

“A month after the CIA sends a warning to the FBI, this is something John Ratcliffe declassified, saying Hillary Clinton is trying to play a dirty trick on Donald Trump to tie him to Russia to get out of her e-mail thing. All through the fall, they keep a spreadsheet of what’s right and wrong with the Steele dossier. It’s all wrong. Can’t corroborate, they can’t collaborate the information. The FBI never should have started the investigation and I think that’s where John Durham’s investigation is focused right now,” he added.

Durham’s investigation into the origin of the Trump-Russia hoax has many people wanting Hillary Clinton and her allies held accountable.

An Obama-era spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Justice claims that Durham shouldn’t have the final say in his investigation.

Matthew Miller, who served as the director of the department’s public affairs office from 2009 to 2011, said that Attorney General Merrick Garland should review the report before it is shared with Americans.

(FreedomWire.org) – Democrat Rep. Jamie Raskin (MD) joined CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday to discuss the midterm elections with host Margaret Brennan, and suggested that some far-right House lawmakers could vote for former President Trump to be the next Speaker as an indication that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) may not have the votes to be the next leader.

Raskin told CBS’s “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan some far-right lawmakers have “repeatedly” discussed voting for Trump.

“It’s a real problem for Kevin McCarthy now, because there are certain pro-Trumpists within his House caucus who refuse to accept that he’s really with Trump and they want to get rid of McCarthy,” Raskin said.

“One potential candidate who’s name has been floated is Donald Trump himself because the Speaker of the House does not have to be a member of the House,” Raskin said.

Raskin noted that the Speaker of the House does not have to be a member of Congress.

Brennan was skeptical.

“That’s not a real option, though,” she told Raskin.

But the Maryland congressman claimed the option is very much on the table.

“They talk about it repeatedly,” Raskin said. “And if Trump decided he wanted to do it, it would pose a profound problem for their party because they refuse to do the right thing.”

The Constitution does not require the Speaker of the House to be an incumbent member and representatives have used this rule to vote for candidates, often in protest, from outside of the House. In 2019, former Rep. Anthony Brindisi voted for Joe Biden — then the former vice president — as Speaker.

(FreedomWire.org) – Elon Musk denounced Twitter for it banning former President Donald J. Trump from its social media platform.

While attending FT Live’s Future of the Car conference, Musk was interviewed by the Financial Times on various issues, including his purchase of Twitter.

When asked about Twitter’s ban of Trump, Musk stated:

“Permanent bans should be extremely rare and really reserved for accounts that are bots, or scam, spam accounts…I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump. I think that was a mistake because it alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice.”

I would reverse the permanent ban,” Musk added. “I don’t own Twitter yet. So this is not like a thing that will definitely happen, because what if I don’t own Twitter?”

According to CNBC, “Twitter permanently suspended Trump from the platform in January 2021 following the attack by his supporters on the U.S. Capitol. The company said it made the decision after the Jan. 6 riot ‘due to the risk of further incitement of violence.’ Trump at the time had more than 80 million followers on the platform.”

While many of his followers have said they would like to see Trump back on Twitter, Trump has said that, even if he could, he will not rejoin Twitter.

“I will be on Truth Social within the week,” Trump told CNBC last month. “It’s on schedule. We have a lot of people signed up. I like Elon Musk. I like him a lot. He’s an excellent individual. We did a lot for Twitter when I was in the White House. I was disappointed by the way I was treated by Twitter. I won’t be going back on Twitter.”

The Supreme Court has decided that a politically-motivated investigation into Donald Trump’s taxes may continue. Though SCOTUS is shutting down President Trump’s election-related lawsuits left and right even when there is plenty of evidence to back them, the high court found time to expose the President’s intimate financial affairs to scrutiny.

With Donald Trump seemingly prepping for a 2020 run for President, liberals are looking for any ammo they can use against him. And for years, they have attempted to pry into his financial affairs whenever they are having trouble finding ammunition to use against him.

The Court’s decision will give a state prosecutor and, presumably, a grand jury, access to all of the President’s finances. While the documents will allegedly remain secret, the President is right to be concerned. Deep State plants have absolutely leaked his private conversations and other information in the past.

Trump’s attorneys have argued that the subpoena to obtain his tax records is overbroad and issued in bad faith. But the Supreme Court under Joe Biden doesn’t care about any of that. “The subpoena is geographically sprawling, temporally expansive, and topically unlimited –all attributes that raise suspicions of an unlawful fishing expedition,” Trump attorney William Consovoy says. “Even if disclosure is confined to the grand jury and prosecutors,” he said “once the documents are surrendered” confidentially “will be lost for all time.”

Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance celebrated the decision on Twitter:

The documents are related to the alleged hush money payments former Trump attorney Michael Cohen allegedly made to two women.  “The Supreme Court never should have let this ‘fishing expedition’ happen, but they did,” President Trump said after the decision, calling it “a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country.”

It’s unclear when the Left will stop focusing on President Trump, but this is becoming tiresome.

Many members of the GOP are rejecting Trump, turning on him for what can only be viewed as political convenience. But is it a smart idea? According to a new poll, it really isn’t. In fact, the GOP risks losing about half of the 75 million Americans who voted for Donald J. Trump in 2020.

Suffolk University/USA TODAY survey reveals that nearly half — 46 percent — of Trump voters say that if the former President were to join a third party, they would follow him there. “If there’s a civil war in the Republican Party, the voters who backed Donald Trump in November’s election are ready to choose sides,” the USA Today report says. “Behind Trump.”

It gets worse for the GOP. Only 27 percent say they would definitely stick with the Party. Another 27 percent say they are not sure what they will do. In other words, nearly double the number who are sure about the GOP say they are certain about Trump — certain enough to follow him to another political party. And support for third parties is at an all-time high, so this isn’t exactly unlikely.

And the news for the GOP gets grimmer. President Trump has hinted at forming a new political party — one that this survey shows will leech nearly 35 million away from the Republican Party at a minimum. If he pulls the trigger on a political party of his own, President Trump plans to call it the “Patriot Pary,” a name many of those undecideds could likely get behind.

No matter how some like Mitch McConnell feel about President Trump, it is clear that opposing him may very well mean the death of the Republican Party. And that may mean a dark period in which Democrats use the split in support to seize total control. Joe Biden talks a lot about unifying the country, but we must focus first on unifying the party. The future of this great nation depends on it.

Trump derangement syndrome continues to ravage America. While most focus on the COVID-19 pandemic, many ignore this disease that has infected Democrats since President Trump first announced his candidacy — and whole numbers for the former are dropping overall, the latter doesn’t seem like it will go away anytime soon. Now, the Left wants to ban President Trump’s name from all federal property.

An impressive 75 million Americans voted for President Trump in 2020. But Democrats have done nothing but paint his supporters as terrorists and Donald John Trump as the leader of a terrorist organization. It may seem crazy, but that’s the reality we are dealing with. Despite widespread condemnation, Democrats are moving forward with their “No Glory For Hate Act,” which not only would ban President Trump from being buried in Arlington National Cemetery, but also make it so not so much as a park bench can be named after him. The Daily Wire reports:

The legislation reads in part: “[N]o Federal funds may be used to create or display any symbol, monument, or statue commemorating any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment of this Act or has been convicted of a State or Federal crime relating to actions taken in an official capacity as President of the United States on Federal public land, including any highway, park, subway, Federal building, military installation, street, or other Federal property; or name, designate, or redesignate a Federal building or Federal land after, or in commemoration of, any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment of this Act or has been convicted of a State or Federal crime relating to actions taken in an official capacity as President of the United States.”

This means no federally funded statues, monuments, street names, libraries, naval vessels, or anything else named after the greatest President we have had since Reagan. The bill doesn’t mention Trump by name. Instead, Democrats target any  “President hat has been twice impeached” by the House.

In the unlikely event that this petty, hateful bill passes, this could backfire huge on Democrats. If Republicans manage to retake the House in midterm elections, they can then impeach Biden twice and ban him from having anything named after him, too.

This entire endeavor is childish. Thousands of Americans are dying of COVID under Biden daily. Snowstorms are ravaging Texas, leaving citizens without power. But Democrats are focused on the only thing that matters to them — hurting Donald Trump.
