House Republicans kept Liz Cheney in her leadership role by a secret vote in February. If there’s a vote in May, she won’t be so lucky.
The Wyoming representative angered many in the base when she joined nine other Republicans to impeach President Donald Trump for his role in the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol. As House Republican Conference chair, she holds the third-highest position in minority leadership. Trump supporters found it a betrayal of their party.
Cheney avoided removal with a 145-61 vote in her favor. Anyone with a hint of political acumen or leadership instincts would start mending fences, uniting the caucus, and moving forward. Cheney chose the opposite.
Join Jim and Greg as they enjoy watching the Dems’ case for killing the filibuster wither away.

Join Jim and Greg as they cautiously welcome the new shifting of congressional seats based upon the 2020 U.S. Census and the opportunity for Republicans to win a House majority. They also roll their eyes as John Kerry denies telling Iran’s foreign minister about covert Israeli operations in Syria while former Obama official Ben Rhodes comes up with a completely contradictory defense of Kerry’s actions.

On this episode of “The Federalist Radio Hour,” Managing Editor Joshua Lawson and New York Correspondent David Marcus join Western Correspondent Tristan Justice to discuss what the vote to keep Rep. Liz Cheney on GOP House leadership signals and reflects for the future of the Republican Party.
Join Jim and Greg as they welcome some of the most radical leftist mayors finally running out of patience with teachers’ unions who refuse to agree to in-person education. They also discuss Liz Cheney surviving as chair of the GOP House Conference and what the right way is to navigate the Marjorie Taylor Greene soap opera. And they hammer the Biden administration for considering a plan to mail masks to every American.
It must be a perpetual full moon these days because the GOP has lost its ever lovin’ mind. First some facts.
Polling conducted January 4-5, 2021 before the January 6 House and Senate electoral vote count indicated fairly broad support for challenging the election. (Among more recognized polling names, Rasmussen did better with the 2020 election than many other pollsters.)
