The moment it was declared that Congresswoman Liz Cheney was ousted from her role as chair of the House Republican Conference, all media eyes turned to Donald Trump. Specifically, we were refreshing the page for his “Desk,” the pseudo-social site where we can get the posts we miss from his days on Twitter and Facebook. When his statement finally appeared, it didn’t disappoint one bit.
Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being. I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party. She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our Country. She is a talking point for Democrats, whether that means the Border, the gas lines, inflation, or destroying our economy. She is a warmonger whose family stupidly pushed us into the never-ending Middle East Disaster, draining our wealth and depleting our Great Military, the worst decision in our Country’s history. I look forward to soon watching her as a Paid Contributor on CNN or MSDNC!
Cheney has been at odds with the majority of her fellow Republicans on Capitol Hill with inflammatory statements regarding President Trump. She doubled- and tripled-down in recent days, including stating yesterday on the House floor that the 2020 election wasn’t stolen.
A voice vote was all that was needed to determine her fate According to The Right Scoop, it was more than her feud with Trump that doomed her political power.
House Republicans have just voted to oust Liz Cheney from here leadership role as Conference Chair by a voice vote:

It looks like the deed is done, that Cheney is ousted, and now they’ll vote to replace her with Stefanik.
Much of the media is claiming that she was ousted because she opposed Trump. That’s partly true, but it isn’t the whole story. Byron York wrote about this today and explains that it was really because Cheney was only focused on Trump, continuing to relitigate issues from November to January, and was not focused on Biden and the 2022 elections:
Go back to January 13. Cheney, nine other Republicans vote to impeach Trump. GOP leadership takes no action against them. When some members call for vote on February 3, Cheney receives big show of support, winning 145-61. 2/16 https://t.co/Ok2LJwDZLT

York makes the point that Republicans simply weren’t all that angry with Cheney back in January, despite her vote to impeach Trump. So why are they now so angry that she has to go?
The answer, according to Byron York and others, isn’t that she voted to have him impeached, as did nine other Republicans. It wasn’t even that she took shots at him in January and February. The problem is she kept taking shots at him. In essence, she has become a single-issue politician, and when that single issue is going after an extremely popular member of your own political party, there really isn’t much that can be done other than to oust her.
Does this mean there’s disunity in the GOP? Not at all, according to Congressman Matt Gaetz. He spoke to The Post Millennial about it:
Speaking to The Post Millennial, Gaetz said that “Rep. Cheney’s record doesn’t stand with the party. This is a party that wants to stop endless wars, wants an immigration and economic policy that supports the America First agenda. This is a party that gave President Trump over 90 percent of their vote, and she made it her personal mission to fight against him, support the left-wing media’s narratives, and spit in the eye of every Republican who voted for him and supported his agenda.”
She was one of 10 Republicans who voted for the impeachment of Donald Trump as he exited the White House, on charges of “incitement of insurrection” after the Capitol riot which cost Trump supporter Ashli Babbit her life at the hands of the Capitol Hill Police. Cheney blamed Trump fully, including for the death of five people, four of whom died from medical incidents, saying that Trump “summoned,” “assembled” and “lit the flame of this attack.”
Cheney’s take is that former President Trump was responsible for the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, and that the country faced a threat “never seen before” as Trump continues to tell the story that the 2020 election was “stolen from him.” Republicans didn’t sit in the House for Cheney’s rebuke, leaving near the top of her speech.
While President Biden and the Democrats continue to say that the GOP is having an identity crisis, evidenced by Cheney’s ouster, Gaetz tells The Post Millennial that the GOP is actually rather united. Cheney’s ouster evidences that unity.
“Our party is more united now than it has been in some time,” Gaetz said. “We have a blueprint of how to reach the largest numbers of voters in history. Supporting sensible policies on immigration, trade, big tech, woke capital, and foreign policy should be the staple of our party. In all decision making, we should look at what’s in the best interest of the least among us. The hardworking Americans building a life for themselves and their families. We are the party of the worker, the patriot, and the silent majority who still believes that this is the last best hope.”
This isn’t enough. She needs to be removed from office. As a Congresswoman, we should see viable replacements for her emerge over the next few months. Some already have. It’s time for one of them to step up and primary her out.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
