After being mad and kicked to the curb?
Dick Chemeny’s daughter, a former Republican House member’s is getting even and making some money….
Oh, and adding Professor to her resume….
Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) — vice chair, and key driving force of the House’s Jan. 6 committee — will be out Nov. 14 with “Oath and Honor,” which publisher Little, Brown calls a memoir, a call to action and “urgent warning.”
Why it matters: Cheney, daughter of the former vice president, became a household name during Jan. 6 hearings last summer — and wants to be sure the issues of principle/duty/obligation stay in the national debate.
- “The last two years have shown us once again that our constitutional republic is not self-sustaining,” Cheney, who calls herself a “constitutional conservative,” said in a statement.
- “It survives only because of the courage and honor of individual Americans. When history looks back on this time, each elected official will have to answer the questions: Did we do our duty? Were we faithful to our oath of office?”
Cheney’s book “will take readers inside the rooms where congressional leaders grappled with the threat posed by Trump’s efforts to overturn the election,” the announcement says. “She will detail lessons learned — stories of leadership, of cowardice, and of courage.”
- “Cheney will explain why she decided to stand almost alone against her party; why she risked her career, her seat, and her position in leadership to do what she knew was right.”….

She’s totally irrelevant.
The vast majority of Republicans despise her.
I would tend to agree
But things ARE going sideways come later this year into next year
ANY THING could happen……
She IS STILL popular back according a poll i saw
My Name Is Jack says
The article is about Cheney and I’ve seen NO evidence as to her “popularity.”
As usual you just make stuff up.
Cheney is TOTALLY irrelevant in today’s Republican Party and anybody (YOU) who thinks that she is somehow going to make a comeback shows a total lack of understanding of what has happened to the Republican Party.
Yes Cheney is history with Trump still around….
As for Haley?
I’m not counting her out of the sweepstakes drawering
Democratic Socialist Dave says
As if she hadn’t already cast herself into the outer darkness over January 6th, she’s a neo-conservative like her dad — never a majority viewpoint within the GOP and one that (through its massively-counterproductive mismanagement of Iraq which has only strengthened Iran and Bashar al-Assad) has greatly strengthened the isolationist, Trumpist and Russophile factions within the Party and among its supporters and sympathizers.
You rarely hear a peep these days from the likes of the once-powerful Richard Cheney, John Bolton, Paul Wolfowitz, Bill Kristol, Douglas Feith and Jeanne Kirkpatrick. As a factor within today’s GOP, and even within its Never-Trump minority, it has become negligible, although Amb. Bolton did contribute a piece to a recent 15-person forum on Iraq+20 at National Review.
Liz Cheney (honourably and patriotically as she has acted under huge right-wing pressure, and at the loss of here own seat) needs to come up with something more than being anti-Trump neo-con sympathiser.
