Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

"At this moment, we are confronting a domestic threat that we have never faced before. And that is a former president who is attempting to unravel the foundations of our Constitutional Republic," Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said during an address at the Reagan Presidential Foundation & Institute.

"And he is aided by Republican leaders and elected officials who have made themselves willing hostages to this dangerous and irrational man."

Cheney said that some in the GOP are "embracing" Trump and "enabling his lies."

"One need only look at the threats that are facing the witnesses who've come before the January 6th Committee to understand the nature and the magnitude of that threat."

Cheney concluded in her remarks by saying no one can ignore the threat that Trump poses, adding "we stand at the edge of an abyss and we must pull back."

I still reluctantly have to consider that this civilization entered an alternate timeline after the events of 9/11. Cubs and Red Sox win the series? Not until after 9/11. Black man elected President? Not until after 9/11. Major US political party embracing Russian money and parroting their counterintelligence disinformation campaign all for political gain? Only after 9/11. Makes one wonder, doesn't it?

And lastly, me and fellow liberals praising Liz Cheney for her defense of our constitutional republic in the face of the fascist threat from psychopathic Donald Trump and his personal army of white supremacists masquerading as MAGAts? This was definitely not on my 10 year, 2020-decade bingo card, but here we are.

Liz went to the Reagan Library and told the unvarnished truth - to multiple ovations from the crowd with nary a single boo to be heard - as she laid into Donald Trump's cultish hold on the Republican Party and his criminal conduct against the constitutional functioning of government.

Bully, bully!

Don't forget the Chiefs winning the Super Bowl.

To be fair, the Chiefs didn't have to wait 100 years.

It sure felt like it around here. Both Dad and I were besides ourselves when they won. One lasting memory of Dad and I happy together.

Trump proved that there are worse things than neo-cons.

He had to tell the Big Lie to do it; he had to bamboozle the avg Joe with "BS", as his AG put it, but that's always been his super power.

She sold her soul for a pundit gig on CNN+. She imagined a life as their answer to Scarborough.

Great speech.
We are Ukraine, in many ways. That country was pressured and manipulated by Russia for many years, until it had a guy, Yanukovich, who was Russia's tool to destroy Ukrainian democracy, just as Trump is in the US. They drove Yanukovych from office and he would still be in jail except for the fact that Putin intervened and helped him escape to Russia, something I expect if Trump is ever indicted here in the US.

Any number of your fascist idols can go under oath to refute her.

As things stand, your fascist friends let her own the truth.

WTF? When did that happen?

In all seriousness, I spoke with a man yesterday who said that Joe Biden had completed air strikes on American meat-packing plants in order to drive up meat prices.

Are you him?

According to the left she is the daughter of Satan himself but that can be forgiven if she moves to the left. Auditioning for a gig on MSDNC.

Your time is better spent examining whether what she said was true or not.

But, omigosh....That's not what fascists do.

Liz is waiting by the phone for a call from 'The View'. The producers are always on the lookout for a new "conservative" (token).

She is under oath. She is telling the truth as she sees it.

You are not. GFY insurrectionist.

Oops. I thought our visiting insurrectionist said that. I didn't see who he was quoting.
