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.

With gas prices at record highs, Biden CANCELS gas lease

“We did it, Joe” memes of Vice President Kamala Harris and Joe Biden are popping up all over social media alongside individuals photographs of the horrendously high prices they have to pay at the gas pump to fill their cars.

Biden has no intention of fixing it, as proven by the administration’s recent decision to actually cancel an oil and gas lease win the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska’s Cook Inlet.

This is nothing short of purposeful destruction of America. The Interior Department told The New York Post that the Cook Inlet lease sale would not move forward because of a “lack of industry interest in leasing in the area.”

In the Gulf of Mexico, the department canceled two lease sales, citing “conflicting court rulings that impacted work on these proposed sales.”

The timing is outrageous, considering “as of Thursday morning, the national average price of a gallon of regular gas stood at $4.418, according to AAA — the highest on record and $1.41 higher than at this time last year.”

Additionally, the scenario also displays just how much federal judges tend to completely disagree with his actions. “Biden imposed a moratorium on the sale of new leases one week after his inauguration, but the order was later blocked by a Louisiana federal judge who granted a preliminary injunction to 13 states that claimed they would suffer ‘irreparable injury’ from the White House move” writes The Post.

At least federal judges are watching out to keep our country afloat, let along thriving, considering our own President and Vice President will not.

Republicans and energy industry representatives are fuming over the decision. “Yesterday, Americans paid the highest price for gasoline in history,” tweeted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). “At the same time Biden just canceled our largest pending American oil & gas lease sale.”

“Gas prices are at a record high, and Biden just canceled oil and gas leases in Alaska and the Gulf,” added Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.). “Joe Biden is directly responsible for the high cost of gas.”

“It’s almost like the Biden administration WANTS gas prices to go higher” said Pennsylvania US Senate GOP candidate Carla Sands

“The President has spoken about the need for additional supplies in the market, but his administration has failed to take action to match that rhetoric,” Frank Macchairola of the American Petroleum Institute told CBS News, calling the cancellations “another example of the administration’s lack of commitment to oil and gas development in the US.”

“In the kind of price environment that we’re seeing, there are negative consequences to shutting off oil and gas development, both politically and practically,” he added.

If the administration had moved forward with the Alaskan lease, it would have covered more than 1 million acres, according to The Hill.
