Two reported allies of minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) promised The Hill that they will oust Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as GOP conference chairwoman as soon as this month.

“She is a big distraction,” one McCarthy ally reportedly said. “I don’t see McCarthy saving her this time.”

This comes after Cheney tweeted out her response to Former President Trump, who said in a statement: “The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!” Cheney did not hide her disdain for those who agree with Trump. 

“There is no way that Liz will be conference chair by month’s end,” this first ally reportedly went on to say. “When there is a vote, it won’t be a long conference; it will be fast. Everyone knows the outcome.”

A second ally reportedly confirmed the reports of the first. “This is a broad range of lawmakers who have had it with her,” the ally said. “She’s a liability, and McCarthy’s as fed up as the rest of us that she is focused on the past rather than winning back the House.”

McCarthy confirmed parts of the rumors on Fox and Friends Tuesday. “I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job, carry out the message,” the California representative said.

However, it’s not because of her opinion on Trump. McCarthy denied any grudges because of her recent tweet. “There’s no concern about how she voted on impeachment,” McCarthy said.

Finally, McCarthy alluded that he just wants the best future for the Republican party. “Majorities are not given, they are earned.”

A spokesperson for the GOP did not give a comment to SaraACarter.com.

As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.

“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”

In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.

“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”

“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
