A litmus test helps smoke out the political fakes and impostors. More Republican politicians claim to be conservative than really are, and litmus tests separate the wheat from the chaff.
Donald Trump issued a proclamation on Monday that should become the new standard against which Republican candidates are measured. “The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!” Trump declared.
Leftists have figured out how to steal elections by harvesting mail-in ballots, as happened in the last presidential election and then again in the special Georgia U.S. Senate runoff elections. Republicans who deny this are not worth supporting, because they will not rein in this fraud as it worsens.
A Never-Trumper with big-name support ran in the congressional primary in Texas on Saturday for an open seat previously held by a Republican. Michael Wood is a charismatic former Marine and two-time winner of a Purple Heart, and seemed like a can’t-lose candidate.
But he finished a distant 9th in the race, garnering only 3% of the vote. Among his supporters were Never-Trumper Liz Cheney (R-WY), who donated to his campaign.
Michael Wood openly campaigned against Donald Trump, and that guaranteed his defeat as it should. The winner won with Trump’s endorsement, of course.
Cheney tweeted out her view that the 2020 presidential election was won by Biden fair and square, and thus she will not be doing anything meaningful to prevent a repeat of that calamity. She has also failed to speak out against the wrongful imprisonment of peaceful political protesters who came to the Capitol on January 6.
Meanwhile, Liz Cheney was photographed last week giving a fist bump to Joe Biden when he came to address Congress. Then on Monday Biden drastically increased the limit on opening our borders to refugees despite strong opposition by ordinary Americans.
The litmus test of the Big Lie enables Wyoming voters to recognize immediately that Cheney is working for the other side. Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) predicts she will be removed from GOP leadership in the House by the end of this month.
Liz Cheney is still not getting the message, as she continued to castigate President Trump at a closed-door gathering of Establishment donors in the elite resort town of Sea Island, Georgia. “It’s a poison in the bloodstream of our democracy,” she said about the recognition that the 2020 election was tainted by fraud, which two-thirds of Republican voters believe according to multiple recent surveys.
No Republican will win another presidential election until the fraudulent voting tricks by Dems are stopped. If Cheney gets her way, she’d be giving Biden fist bumps and high-fives for the next eight years while refugees and illegal aliens overrun our country.
Also on Saturday, Mitt Romney (R-UT) was nearly booed off the stage by the Utah State Republican Party convention of thousands. Shouts of “traitor” and even “communist” rained down on him from grassroots conservatives.
Romney protested that his dad was a Republican, and that Mitt himself was the GOP nominee for president in 2012. But that was when voting was in-person without the rampant mail-in voting fraud that Democrats exploit now, and Romney is clueless about what needs to be done to save our country from more stolen elections.
While Romney jets around criticizing Trump as liberals do, our country is suffering the consequences of the stolen election. A total of 62,500 refugees will be placed in various communities without approval by local residents, subjecting them to assaults and suffocating burdens on their local governments.
Heinous crimes have been committed by refugees who lack the background or the values to function in our society. The recent murder of 10 at a grocery store in Colorado was purportedly committed by a refugee, Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, who had arrived in our country at a young age and went to school here without learning to be a loyal American.
That refugee had reportedly posted anti-Trump comments on Facebook. One of the victims of the killing spree was a police officer, Eric Talley, the father of 7.
In the next six months Biden will bring in more than four times the number of refugees whom Trump allowed annually, and Biden is just getting started. Some insist that anyone concerned merely about alleged climate change should qualify as a refugee.
Biden’s own Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, expressed doubts whether federal resources are sufficient to accommodate so many refugees. Biden is pandering to Leftists who do not care about the crime and hardship on Americans that such a large increase in refugees causes.
We do not hear Cheney, Romney, or other anti-Trumpers doing anything meaningful to stand up against Biden, as Trump has done and will do again. Republicans who downplay election fraud should resign or be defeated in their next primary.
