Matt Rosendale is barking down Deep State neocon, Liz Cheney (WY), after she endorsed the president’s impeachment. And for that, Rosendale has quickly become Montana’s hero.
Liz Cheney is the daughter of Big Government warhawk and power-pimp, former Vice President Dick Cheney, who oversaw the creation of the Patriot Act, the normalization of torture, and subjecting American citizens to mass surveillance. She is also an avid Trump-Hater who has complained incessantly that the outsider has taken power away from party insiders, like the Cheney family. And yesterday, Cheney called for the impeachment of Donald J. Trump for “insurrection” (meaning they don’t approve of his speech).
However, right behind Cheney to the mic on a string of interviews was Matt Rosendale (R), the Big Sky State’s sole representative in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is also Cheney’s neighbor to the north, Montana, and the two Rocky Mountain legislators took starkly different sides in the debate.
Rep. Rosendale called on Cheney to step down as Republican Conference Chair, considering she Benedict Arnold’ed the head of the Republican Party who is – for now – President Donald Trump.
When Representative Cheney came out for impeachment today, she failed to consult with the Conference, failed to abide by the spirit of the rules of the Republican Conference, and ignored the preferences of Republican voters. She is weakening our conference at a key moment for personal political gain and is unfit to lead. She must step down as Conference Chair.
The term Quisling refers to someone who immediately surrenders to and coordinates with an occupying force, thus betraying those who elected them. In Hollywood, this might best be seen in the pop-culture sensation 1984 film, Red Dawn. In that cinematic thriller, Mayor Bates capitulated with the invading armies and helped them subjugate his constituents in order to save his own neck.
But in history, the term Quisling comes from Vidkun Quisling, a Norwegian military officer who conspired with Nazis to form the Norwegian fascist party, participate in the Final Solution, and forced Norway to become a collaborator with Germany as a puppet state run by Adolph Hitler. After WWII, Quisling was put on trial for treason against Norway and was put to death by firing squad.
Liz Cheney and those opportunistic, Deep State politicians who are now publicly turning on President Trump are also turning on their own constituents, who have not turned on President Trump. Cheney and other coward Republicans are doing so in order to save their own necks from the payback coming on behalf of Democrats and to escape the Great Purge of Big Tech censorship. They are also doing it to aggrandize themselves in the Beltway swamp rather than to represent those who elected them.
However, Matt Rosendale, forges a different path ahead for American patriots who will not be dispelled or quieted by outrage in America’s blue dots. He is a man of conviction and appears to have a backbone of steel. Montana voters would be well-served by doing everything possible to place Rosendale in positions of even higher leadership, as he is proving to us his mettle.
