Trump-Cheney Family Feud
To solve our political problems, we should put our political families on “Family Feud,” currently hosted by Steve Harvey. A while back Scott Adams pointed out Donald Trump destroyed two political families in 2016, the Bushes and the Clintons.
He’s doing the same now to the Cheneys. Along with a nonentity named Rep. Adam Kinzinger, Rep. Lynne Cheney was censured by the Republican National Committee for participating in the kangaroo Jan. 6 committee. That brought forth a lot of huffing and puffing, such as from Karen Tumulty in the Bezos Post, who called the two “among the all-too-few elected officials in their party standing up for the Constitution against a former president who was willing to overturn the result of a legitimate election and who continues to hold the party in his grip.”
No, it’s just a family feud. In 2016, Trump trashed the Iraq War and those who led it, President W. Bush and VP Dick Cheney. A loyal daughter, Liz supported her Pa.
It all was ironic because the Left, including the Post, hated Dick Cheney 20 years ago, but loves him now. Anything to attack the monster Trump!
All this defending “our democracy” is going on as the Left is imposing a vast censorship and control regime. Neil Young, now joined by his has-been mates in Crosby Stills Nash and Young, has withdrawn from Spotify, a streaming service, because host Joe Rogan had on some doctors who questioned the Official Narrative on COVID. My, my. What happened to “Tin Soldiers and Nixon’s coming”? And, in “Southern Man,” “I heard screamin' and bullwhips cracking
How long? How long? How?”
Now Neil is cracking bullwhips over Rogan. How long?
The White House also got into the act. Jen Psaki demanded Rogan be censored. Imagine if Nixon had demanded CBS remove Walter Cronkite from the air?
It’s especially censorious as Omicron seems to be fading into an endemic condition. So the whole thing is about over, certainly a time for reassessing what went on so far. The U.S. courts also have been rejecting the vax mandates.
This also means the censorship attacks are just exercises of raw media power. They have the clout to censor, so they’re going to use it. They’re getting prepared for after Republicans likely take over the House and Senate this November. Then the next day the race will be on for the 2024 presidential election.
In that, the Trump Family likely also will be deeply involved in a new race for supreme power. The Bush-Obama-Cheney-Clinton Family alliance will be out in full force, first pushing aside the weak Biden Family, then choosing its means of preventing a Trump resurgence.
Meanwhile, the Romney Family joined the Cheney Etc. Family. Mitt tweeted, “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.”
But there’s no personal cost. The two soon will be out of jobs. Then they’ll be hired by CNN or MSNBC to be the next Joe Scarborough. Joe joined the Brzezinski Family when he married Mika, daughter of Zbig, also a big opponent of Trump. He obviously just follows the Neocon line of her and her late Pa, especially in ginning up a war with Russia over Ukraine – something else Trump opposes.
All of which is why “Family Feud” is the way to settle these disputes. Line up the contending families, let Steve Harvey run the show, and the winner occupies the White House.

I agree, it’s elite family’s and corporate interests squabbles. I would refer to the “Trump-Nancy Pelosi soap opera while he was in office because people get so caught up defending their favorite elites over issues they didn’t even initially care about that they never seem to realize they don’t have a voice of their own, for their own people.
That’s why I like the adage Brion McClanahan uses “think locally, act locally “. Because even on the state rep. District levels there is no real voice of the people except was trickles through after huge pressure like possibly that exerted by these truckers on the northern border.
Take for instance in Alabama, supposedly a state (really federal county now) with a republican super-majority…in a Senate Tourism committee voted 10 to 1 in favor of a bill to remove the Robert E. Lee Birthday state holiday from his birth month (MLK’s month in their eyes) to October. I don’t know a single conservative person who wants or appreciates this move. Yet, 6 Republicans and 4 voted for the bill and it will now move to the Senate Rules Committee which will decide if the whole Senate takes a vote on it. Republicans sponsored scored the bill.
Republicans also sponsored a bill that was a deceitful in its legislation to protect current monuments in that the effectiveness would be very weak and the bill also calls for the stare to have a statue built of John Lewis in front of the Edmund Pettus Bridge.
With Republican friends like that on the local or state levels it shows the poor to no quality of our representation.
Until one of them gets the idea that Wheel of Fortune questions the verity of the Survey. Then as one big happy family the go kill Pat and Vanna and emplace the Wheel of Equality, where the contestants vie for debt to the studio.
It’s good practice, when contributing a wise-crack, to base it on what the author actually wrote. For some reason I finished the article with an image of members of the Bushcheneyclitonobama clan all lined up on either side of Steve Harvey.
Man, what got into that coffee this morning . . . .
Oh, for the days of dueling! I can’t image many more marvelous moments than watching Don Trump and Lynne Cheney or Dick Cheney (your choice) select single-shot pistols, stand back to back, take ten paces away from each other, and turn and fire. That said, we will, of course, never see such a grand occasion because those who once dueled did so in order to protect their sacred honor and noble reputations, none of which either the Donald or any Cheney can claim.
It’s enough to make one miss the Adams family, John that is, although I would take Gomez Addams and co. before any of the above-mentioned any day. What we really need is the Earps. Corrupt as they may have been, they were saints compared to the crowd we have now at every level.
Mr. Shofner, your fantasy duel would be a great idea if we could be assured that no-one left the field alive. Might I suggest mud wrestling in a alligator pit? It would be more in keeping with current entertainment standards and might draw the support of the MSM to boost flagging ratings.
