House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy set a Wednesday vote for removing Rep. Liz Cheney from her Republican leadership post in the chamber, saying it was clear that he and his GOP colleagues “need to make a change.”

McCarthy, R-Calif., made the remarks Monday in a letter to Republican lawmakers that did not mention Cheney, R-Wyo., or former President Donald Trump by name.

Cheney seems all but certain to be tossed from the No. 3 House GOP job after repeatedly challenging Trump’s false assertions pinning his November reelection defeat on widespread voting fraud. She has also criticized his role in inciting his supporters’ attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6 as electoral votes were being formally certified, and she was among just 10 Republicans to support the House’s vote to impeach him the following week.

McCarthy has signaled his desire to remove Cheney for several weeks. His Monday note seemed designed to provide whatever cover wavering GOP lawmakers might need to toss Cheney from her position.

“If we are to succeed in stopping the radical Democratic agenda from destroying our country, these internal conflicts need to be resolved so as to not detract from the efforts of our collective team,” McCarthy wrote. “Having heard from so many of you in recent days, it’s clear that we need to make a change. As such, you should anticipate a vote on recalling the Conference Chair this Wednesday.”

Cheney’s job as chair of the House Republican conference includes formulating party messaging. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., who came to Congress as an occasional Trump critic but has embraced him over the past two years, seems likely to replace her, though McCarthy might delay that vote.

The backlash against Cheney underscores the fealty to Trump among Republican leaders, particularly in the House, despite his role in inciting the Capitol riot and his recitation of baseless claims of election cheating. Dozens of state and local officials and judges of both political parties found no evidence that voting last fall was marred by significant fraud.

Cheney critics have argued that whatever her personal beliefs, a leader should not stray from the party line. They say her combat with Trump was complicating Republican efforts to concentrate on next year’s elections, when they hope to win House control.

“Unlike the left, we embrace free thought and debate,” he said. He added that lawmakers must represent their constituents “as they see fit, but our leadership team cannot afford to be distracted” from the party’s goals.

Trump reiterated his support for Stefanik in a statement Monday. He cited her support from the National Rifle Association and the union representing border patrol agents, as well as her efforts to help Republicans win House seats, adding, “She knows how to win, which is what we need!”

Cheney is a daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney and a product of the GOP’s conservative establishment. She has a more conservative voting record than Stefanik, according to ratings by conservative groups, but Cheney’s willingness to call out Trump has turned Republicans from all ends of the GOP spectrum against her.

US heatwave sees city hit 46C for five straight days – as doctors warn of third-degree burn risk

Forecasters have issued excessive heat warnings in Arizona and Nevada amid wildfires and record low water levels.

The southwest of the United States is sweltering in record heat as the city of Phoenix saw temperatures hit 115F (46C) for five days in a row.
Forecasters have issued excessive heat warnings in Arizona and Nevada for the rest of the weekend – and doctors have warned of the risk of third-degree burns from hot surfaces.

Las Vegas hit 111F (44C) on Saturday, just three degrees short of its record temperature for June.

In Arizona, fire officials blamed extreme heat for the spread of a wildfire that started on Wednesday and grew by Saturday to nearly 27 square miles near two mountain towns.
Evacuations were ordered on Friday while an aircraft and almost 100 firefighters fought the flames.

Phoenix set a record for the city on Saturday as it 115F (46C) for five consecutive days – and Sunday could extend the record to six days, meteorologist Isaac Smith said.

The problem of burns from hot surfaces is growing in southwest states, as temperatures rise due to climate change and increasing urbanisation.

Arizona Burn Centre in Phoenix said 104 people were admitted in June, July and August 2020 with serious burn injuries due to contact with scorching surfaces – including seven people who died.
Its director Dr Kevin Foster said: “It doesn’t take much time to get a full thickness or third degree burn when exposed to hot pavement.
“Because if you look at hot pavement or asphalt at two o’clock in the afternoon in direct sunlight, the temperature is usually somewhere around 170 to 180F.”

Temperatures are expected to ease next week but could again top 110F (43.3C) in parts of southwest America next weekend.
Excessive heat warnings are also in effect in nearby California and Utah desert areas, as water levels in some areas dropped.

Lake Mead in Nevada supplies 25 million people with water and saw its water levels drop to their lowest point since the reservoir was filled in the 1930s.
In California, farmers have ditched some of the thirstiest crops to save others, while people are debating whether to ration tap water.

“IF WE DO A DEEP-DIVE FORENSIC AUDIT SIMILAR TO ARIZONA, IT WILL DO EITHER ONE OF TWO THINGS,” HE SAID IN A PHONE INTERVIEW. “IT WILL PROVE THAT ALL OF THE POLITICIANS WHO SAY THERE’S NOTHING TO SEE THERE, THAT THEY WERE RIGHT. OR IT WILL PROVE THAT THERE’S A BIG PROBLEM WITH THE INTEGRITY OF OUR ELECTIONS AND THAT WE NEED TO ADDRESS IT IN A MAJOR WAY.”

SEELY SAID ELECTION INTEGRITY ISN’T A DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN ISSUE. HE CITED ONE POLL SAYING 70% OF REPUBLICANS DON’T BELIEVE THE 2020 ELECTION WAS FREE OR FAIR.

ANOTHER SURVEY SAYS BETWEEN 20-30% OF DEMOCRATS SAID IT WAS “VERY LIKELY” THAT DEMOCRATS “STOLE VOTES OR DESTROYED PRO-TRUMP BALLOTS IN SEVERAL STATES TO ENSURE THAT BIDEN WOULD WIN.”

“IF THE POLITICIANS WHO ARE TRYING TO STOP THIS FROM TAKING PLACE TRULY BELIEVE THERE’S NOTHING TO SEE THERE, THEN WHAT WOULD BE THE HARM IN JUST PROVING TO THE ELECTORATE THAT THE CONCERNS ARE UNWARRANTED?” SEELY ASKED.
