    Nothing she said was true. Trump didn’t incite the riot at Capitol Hill.

    It was pre-planned

    Look at these links

    The election was stolen & as for the lawsuits they were dismissed on standing not lack of evidence. Barr and Krebs never looked at the evidence & you look at the hearings NTD news you’d know that there was evidence presented.

    Biden also said that he didn’t need us to get elected.

    https://youtu.be/b4fBSqPB-tk

    Biden ran a terrible campaign & his in his basement the majority of the time and didn’t even win the Democratic nomination. According to VICE news Bernie Sanders was the real nominee & it should be obvious considering that there were Feel the Bern signs all over.

    There was no excitement about Joe Biden throughout the Democratic primary, which he did poorly on.

    Why does anyone care about this Cheney stuff. Does it really make one single difference in the world?? This country is insane, people are increasing becoming more and more aggressive, the government is a complete mess, and nobody has any backbone or accountability. Welcome to the new world as we know it.

    Psych
    Often believed, by those who don’t understand the term’s origin, to be spelt (or spelled, for the American audience) ‘sike’.

    Deriving from the word psychology, psych is a term used to indicate that whatever the person speaking just said was done so purely to mess with the listener’s mind, to ‘psych’ them out, if you will.
    “I hate you… PSYCH! you’re awesome!”

    Liz doesn’t think Obama defended America? He defended America so much he blew up a bunch of innocent people trying to get a single guy. She should applaud him. Just to clarify, overall I think the was a pretty decent president aside from the bad stuff.

    She’s not a Republican, she tried to rehabilitate her family image because her father former V.

She’s like David FRUM, they are trying to use Republicans to make themselves look good to the media so that the FAKENEWS LIBERALMEDIA COMMUNISTS will not talk bad about these TRAITORS to the Republican party. She is helping Corrupt DEMOCRATS ( DEMON RATS ) to MABA ( Make America BANKRUPT Again ) America.

    Lindsey Graham said something very telling that Seth missed – that Trump “appears” to be on the side of the working class. He knows Trump doesn’t care about them, but he is still willing to bet the farm on this base of the lunatic fringe and the far Christian right. I hate that the film Idiocracy was prophetic, and that such a large percentage of the population are taking such monumental steps backwards in their distrust of science, government, and the rise in racist rhetoric.

    Look how vacuous the American left is – Cheney is everything the left hates: pro-life, pro-war, establishment, neoconservative, basically she’s a carbon copy of her father. She also supported almost every Trump initiative, BTW. But because she voted for impeachment after Jan 6th, suddenly now she’s a hero?!? Democrats have no principles any more, only “who do we hate today” and you’re either with them or against them in their hate campaigns. Sure, she got one thing right. One thing. The rest of her record is still awful!

    Admitting the Republican Party has no future without Donald Trump is an extraordinary statement for Lindsey Graham to make. In an ordinary world this would be interpreted as a stinging criticism of the party, since the Republicans are supposed to represent the interests of millions of Americans and not just one man – but this isn’t an ordinary world. In this world Republicans can say anything at all and no one questions them, so long as they signify support for their side. Ted Cruz publicly admitted that he took donations from corporations for corrupt reasons, and no one cares. As far as her party is concerned, Liz Cheney’s one error was public criticism of the team.
