House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy Says Liz Cheney Leadership Ouster Likely Before the End of The Month – Perhaps Tucker Carlson Attacks on McCarthy Are Connected

If you are into the political weeds, specifically the Machiavellian aspects to the deepest political weeds, there’s an interesting article in The Hill today with quotes from people very close to GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy.

Essentially, the nub of it is that GOP Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney is about to get removed from her leadership position due to her continued antagonism of the MAGA supporters and President Trump.

After Cheney’s latest round of attacks against Trump and his supporters McCarthy is no longer going to defend Cheney from a frustrated republican caucus ready to get rid of her.

Cheney is likely to be voted out of leadership by the end of the month, depending on the timing of the next GOP conference assembly.

WASHINGTON – Top allies of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) are vowing to oust Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), one of the harshest critics of former President Trump in either party, from her leadership post by the end of the month.

They argue that the No. 3 Republican has repeatedly contradicted McCarthy and his team, undermining the party’s message and its efforts to take back the House majority in next year’s midterm elections.

“There is no way that Liz will be conference chair by month’s end,” one key McCarthy ally told The Hill on Monday. “When there is a vote, it won’t be a long conference; it will be fast. Everyone knows the outcome.” (read more)

The list of possible replacements for Liz Cheney includes Elise Stefanik (NY) and Jackie Walorski (Ind); both would be good replacements.  Walorski was a wolverine against the Obama administration during the VA scandal, and Stefanik was a loyal MAGA ally during the impeachment effort.  However, due to the depth of the swamp I would emphasize the need to keep a close eye on either.

All of that said…. Now I get into the Machiavellian angle of this DC swamp.

This is where the attack against Frank Luntz by Tucker Carlson starts to make sense.

I know Tucker Carlson is valued by many people in the MAGA community, but a DC leopard doesn’t change his spots (and often relies on short memories).  If you have followed the deep weeds for a long time THIS REFRESHER will remind you of the issues with Tucker Carlson.  My hunch is the attack on Luntz was not really an attack on Luntz, but really was cover for a presumptive attack on McCarthy.   That’s how the Machiavellian DC swamp rolls.

I’m no fan of McCarthy, but his thirst for political wind-chasing is actually an asset when it comes to these creatures.  With McCarthy you know what his priorities are… He is predictable. That is why he aligned with President Trump; and Donald Trump knows a person who wants advancement, even if that person is not trustworthy, can be an asset in DC because Trump holds the leverage -the raw political power- that is valuable to the GOP leader.

From the Machiavellian angle Carlson could likely have been positioning against McCarthy in order to assist Liz Cheney and that tribe of DeceptiCons.  Tucker has a history here {Go Deep} that unfortunately people have forgotten.  Maybe I’m wrong, but the most recent timing of the MAGA attack by Cheney and the McCarthy attack by Tucker are too coincidental to be dismissed.

Getting Liz Cheney out of a position of GOP influence prior to the 2022 primary races is a good thing in the same way that eliminating Eric Cantor was a good thing in 2014.  However, we must be cautious as the DeceptiCon wing starts to make their moves now in an effort to have influence over those 2022 house races.

Keep your eyes wide open and trust no-one.
