Liz Cheney is Removed From GOP Leadership by The Elephant's Child

A very odd news day. A Cyber attack was directed at the Colonial pipeline, an important East Coast pipeline, which led to gasoline shortages up and down the southern coastal states. Gas prices soared, but many stations just ran out. President Joe Biden proposed more spending on education, when asked how to end the gasoline shortage.

I think that this shows that I think we have to make a greater investment in education as it relates to being able to train and graduate more people proficient in cybersecurity, Biden said when asked how to alleviate the crisis.

I think that one of the most important things we have to do to reclaim our place as the leading innovator in the world is to have a better educated workforce. By Tuesday, Biden officials said there was not a shortage but a “crunch.”

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp remarked that the President could reauthorize the XL Pipeline, and remove the whole problem.

Most of the day was devoted to the drama of Liz Cheney, and would she be removed from her conference chair responsibilities. Liz Cheney, the Democrats and the Never Trumpers all claim that the Big Lie is the contention that the 2020 election was not a fair election. They follow that up with the idea that Donald Trump tried to promote the violent overthrow of the government on January 6 at the Capitol.

This mostly shows that Cheney has not done her homework and studied up carefully on what actually happened. President Trump invited his supporters to come to Washington DC and march down Pennsylvania Avenue. He did not invite nor suggest that they invade the capitol. A lot of Democrats have tried to claim that he did, but the facts do not bear that out.

Conrad Black, long time Canadian-British newspaper publisher and writer wrote a piece for American Greatness that you may find interesting.

There was, of course, a lot of fraud in the 2020 election, there probably always is. There is plenty of evidence of some. Enough to change the results? Probably not. I’m still chafing about the gentleman who voted and had his vote counted, who was born in 1824. That one just strikes me as a little too much. People vote for their dead relatives, if they think they can get away with it. People vote at their own residence and their summer residence as well. I think our ability to keep the vote honest is improving slowly, but the need to WIN is powerful, and being in charge offers all sorts of benefits to the winning party.

So Liz Cheney is out of Republican leadership, and how she will do in the coming election in Wyoming is a question. I want representatives who work hard at being well informed and highly responsible to their supporters back home. Glad she’s out.

In the meantime, consumer prices have jumped 4.2 percent. I don’t think you can fix that with more education.
