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 Neil Young, now joined by his has-been mates in Crosby Stills Nash and Young, has withdrawn from Spotify, a streaming service, because host Joe Rogan had on some doctors who questioned the Official Narrative on COVID.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.
