Group Protests Liz Cheney Appearance In Walnut Creek Monday


A small group of protestors turned up at the Lesher Center in Walnut Creek Monday ahead of a scheduled appearance by former U.S. representative Liz Cheney, chanting slogans and haranguing attendees who had come to hear Cheney speak.

The group, numbering about 20 people dressed in attire and carrying banners and signs associated with a certain failed former president, were peaceful but “somewhat confrontational” according to passersby and people attending the lecture.

Cheney served as the U.S. representative for Wyoming’s at-large congressional district from 2017 to 2023. She chaired the House Republican Conference, the third-highest position in the House Republican leadership, from 2019 to 2021, and served as the Vice Chair of the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol.


  1. Conservative darling. Impeccable pedigree. So many admirers. I’m lost in a Twilight Zone time capsule. Don’t wake me.

  2. It is ok to say “former President Trump”. It would be both respectful to the office as well as factual. Being snide rarely wears well on anyone.

  3. The signs questioned the deaths of Ashli Babbitt, Rosalyn Boylin and the brutal clubbing of VIctoria White by police. Police brutality, no charges again.

    • Just curious if you are equally concerned about the brutality against the police that were there that day. Seems like if the “protesters” stayed in their lane that day all of this could have been avoided.

    • A Constitutional Republic is a form of government in which a representative is elected by the people to govern over them, according to the rules established in the law of the land. An example of a Constitutional Republic is the United States’ form of government. U.S. citizens elect a President, and other representatives, who then govern them as the Constitution directs them to.

        • I’ll concede that is partially true. Our nation began as a constitutional republic; however, we are now a “direct democracy” operating under the guise of “representative democracy”.

          • How do you figure we’re a “direct democracy” and not a “representative democracy”?

  4. I commend her for sacrificing her career for our democracy. It’s a shame it had to come to that but the Constitution and this
    country should always come before party, especially now!

  5. While Trump did have a loud mouth, and can certainly rub you wrong. In retrospect, i think things were better off with him: the economy, the safety of our streets, and the stability of the world. (Russia and Iran are really acting up and would not have under Trump) illegal drugs were not flowing through our Southern border and astonishing rate.. things were better.

    • TOTALLY disagree. Except for the loud mouth part. History will show how damaging this individual was to our country.

    • Did we forget about the hundreds of thousands of Americans who died because of his proven ineffectual pandemic response? It seems so.

  6. You know, Trump is not the most shocking revelation of my long lifetime. We’ve always had con men and demagogues amongst us. It is the revelation that people around us, people who have been here all the time, can see this clown, can hear the schoolyard insults, and still can worship him as the “strong man” or even their savior. I must confess a lack of imagining what is possible. Wow. Just wow.

  7. As a former New Yorker I was lucky to have had exposure to TFG and his peculiar style of doing business early on. I and many others knew what he was and thought he’d never achieve public office. The fact he managed it says more about the intellect of the voting public than it does about him. Amazed people still believe anything he says.

      No control over David unless he’s naughty – (and your assumption about lineage is funny but just wrong!)

      Flashes flying but apparently we haven’t zeroed in on your ‘hood, yet. Count your blessings!
