The news of Liz Cheney's demise has been met with glee by Trumpleton's. Better to get rid of a Trump critic than deal with the truth of what she says. Their rationale, she had the audacity to question Repub's blind fidelity to Trump and his election lies. Additionally, she voted to impeach Don for his 1/6 treachery.

But calling it rationale lends too much credence to their beliefs because it implies they are rational. They aren't. It goes without saying everything Liz has said about the Big Lie is unequivocally true. Making those who still believe the fraud delusion very, very angry. The same could be said for her vote to impeach Don. Seven brave Repub senators joined her in the second impeachment since they could no longer turn a blind eye to the facts as they had in the first impeachment trial. Some of the more egregious facts were unknown until they were revealed by the 1/6 committee, of which she is a member. All the more reason to hate her.

All of which puts on full display the value of establishing a dishonest narrative to which Trump supporters can cling in times of stress. "But the Russia hoax"..........is a common refrain despite Mueller's report proving beyond any doubt Trump obstructed his investigation. Not to mention engaging in despicable, traitorous behavior that violated the spirit if not the letter of the law. Similarly, they point to impeachment votes as a betrayal of loyalty to Dear Leader because they have adopted a pile of lies so tall it clouds their better judgement. Lies not confined to the issues surrounding the impeachment. Lies about the non-existent deep state, about Biden, about the FBI, about Crossfire Hurricane, Obama, Hillary, the origins of the failed coup, the media, it all comes to the fore when a defense for Trump's most recent heinous acts is required.

Some of us have fact checked those omnipresent lies, to no avail. A reality that explains why we as a country find ourselves in the situation we're in. Where truth tellers are purged in favor of sycophants.

I wish we had an opinion page forum on this board.
This thread would be a strong candidate. But, thanks Berg for your opinion.
Fact is that Cheney was pissed at Trump for besmirching her father.
Liz gave up her political career in doing so. The Jan 6 clown show just showed
once again how a the democrat party can lie with a straight face.

It's so ironic to watch Hannity and Tucker report that trust in our institutions is dwindling, completely ignoring the fact that they themselves have been drumming this distrust into their fans for years. This began with Limbaugh and his attacks on the media -- "don't trust them, just trust me" -- and has only grown in size and scope.

The result is this entirely separate, self-sustaining, closed circuit, insulated informational ecosystem. And perhaps worst of all, these people are NOT lying when they say and believe the things they do. That ecosystem tells them that it's The Truth. This explains why they're so paranoid and passionate -- they really do believe this stuff.

I've said it before: The big winner here is Bannon. He has said he wants to bring the system down, and now he has his troops doing just that. What I wonder if the troops really understand what they're asking for. Do they really think they can do this without causing this country severe long term damage, as our adversaries cheer it all?

Seriously, the OP talks about untruths, but is unwilling to admit the Hunter Biden laptop is real.

That is a GLARING problem.

The left has no interest in truth. Only pushing their anti American agenda.

People like this still claim Putin created the Hunter Biden laptop.

OP, did Putin create the Hunter Biden laptop like the left claimed?
They still believe that $100,000 of Fascistbook trolls were what beat a $1 billion presidential campaign.

These cultural Marxist slime would be dangerous if they had a scintilla of introspection.

Any time you're ready to see who believes in lies and who does not the ball is in your court.

Do you believe the election was stolen from Trump?
I'm currently mocking the living fuck out of someone who swims in an ocean of lies, and is so lacking in self-awareness to to take stock of the fact.

It was one component.


Mueller described the Russian campaign as...........“The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion,” Mueller wrote in the 448-page document, which lays out new details about a Kremlin-backed plot that compromised Democrats’ computer networks and targeted state and local election offices.

These are facts Trump cultists are in denial of to this day.
