The Republican National Committee formally censured GOP Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger over their criticism of former President Donald Trump and their roles with the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 U.S. Capitol riot.

The resolution, which says the RNC will no longer support the two as members of the Republican Party, passed in an overwhelming voice vote at the RNC winter meeting in Salt Lake City. It came in a package of five resolutions, including one to “hold Communist China accountable for COVID-19,” that committee members approved together.

Also, Utah Republican Party Chairman Carson Jorgensen showcased Salt Lake City as a potential host for the 2024 Republican National Convention to the RNC’s site selection committee during the three-day meeting. The city is among four finalists for the event.



Shame falls on a party that would censure persons of conscience, who seek truth in the face of vitriol. Honor attaches to Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for seeking truth even when doing so comes at great personal cost.

Liz Cheney Marks The Last Stand Of The Ancien Regime Republicans

Bush administration veterans, Never Trump remnants, and their new Democratic friends are trying to save her. But the effort is doomed.

If it were taking place 20 years ago, it would have been one of the top events on the calendar for Republicans. Once upon a time, a fundraiser sponsored by former Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife Lynne, with appearances by Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, Cheney’s faithful aide Scooter Libby, former Solicitor General Ted Olson, columnist Mona Charen, and a large number of wealthy donors, and hosted by veteran GOP heavy-hitter Bobbie Kilberg and her lawyer husband Bill at their Virginia home, would have been the sort of thing that anyone in the world of GOP officeholders, consultants, and fundraisers would have wanted to attend.

But the March 14 shindig is taking place in 2022, not 2002. That makes the list of sponsors and guests the political equivalent of a baseball Old-Timer’s Game in which the stars of the past gather to put on their old uniforms and entertain their fans with an inning or two in which they pretend to be their former selves.

But the event in question is not an exercise in nostalgia. It’s a fundraiser for Rep. Liz Cheney’s re-election campaign. Although the people listed as sponsors may be political has-beens or are now utterly marginal to the Republican Party, their money is still green and Cheney needs every cent she can raise from her family’s old friends.

Cheney Struggles to Keep Her Seat

Cheney is facing the fight of her political life as she attempts to fend off a primary challenge for renomination to her at-large House seat from Harriet Hageman, the lawyer and conservative activist who has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump. Hageman has raised more than $1 million for her campaign to date and has benefited from fundraisers hosted by billionaire Paypal founder Peter Thiel.

Dave Rubin of “The Rubin Report” talks to US Congressional Candidate for Wyoming, Harriet Hageman about why the Biden energy policy has been a disaster, why Liz Cheney chooses D.C. over Wyoming, and how federal agencies like the EPA abuse their power to punish citizens who are powerless to fight back. In this clip Harriet discusses some little known details about Rep. Liz Cheney, like how she only moved to Wyoming in 2012 and spends most of her time in Washington D.C. She explains why Cheney and other “rinos” are no longer the future of the Republican Party. Harriet also talks about how the January 6 commission is already rigged by what evidence they can present in their investigation against Donald Trump.




During the 2014 election cycle, Hageman was listed as part of the leadership team for Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), who was running for a seat in the U.S. Senate. According to the Casper Star-Tribune, Hageman and her family were longtime allies of the Cheney family. She told the paper, "If we’re going to change the trajectory of the country, we have to change our leaders as well."[5] Cheney dropped out of the race in January 2014, citing family health issues.[6]
