Liz Cheney, the new darling of the Left along with her father, Dick Cheney, a crusty old Neo-con, have again seized an opportunity to be a part of the dirty politicians who have no shame or even a moral compass. Their incessant hate for the Orange Man is political theater of the absurd. As the liberal media gives sympathy to the disgraced Wyoming U.S. Representative, they ignore how the Cheneys have shown they are nothing but two-faced backstabbers. And while she considers running for president in 2024, you can expect Liz to champion everything unconstitutional like Daddy Dick. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with military/geopolitical analyst and author, Sean Patrick Hazlett about LET THEM EAT DICK.
There must be some folk hero image that I am missing with regard to the onslaught of sympathy for Liz Cheney and her war criminal father Dick. I saw a picture of them both before she lost the election in Wyoming and good Ol’ Dick Cheney was beginning to look like some old covetous mutant and I thought this is what evil does to you — much like what it did to Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars.
I mentioned it on my Facebook page and you think that I has spat on the pope as Trump haters would say things like “they reached across the isle and cared more about their country than their political party.”
No — Liz Cheney along with her father have yet again seized an opportunity top be part of the dirty politicians that have no shame or even a moral compass.
Liz Cheney’s picture is everywhere because she is the darling of the left now that she has become the breakout star of this summer’s blockbuster TV series: the hearings of the House committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol.
Yes, it is the reality TV show that has a secret agenda of election meddling and mudslinging — much to the delight of those who hate Trump and want to see him burn.
Democrats are hanging on her every word, delighted to the point of giddiness that she has become the point person in what might well be the most consequential congressional panel since Watergate.
Oh but the frogs forget that she can be a scorpion and she has stung her political rivals many times and even threw her sister under the bus because she was a lesbian.
Who can forget that when Liz was seeking a senate seat in Wyoming she was trailing until she stated that she could not support her sister’s Gay marriage.
She came out against what her own sister does, she came out against gay marriage, thinking that this would win conservative votes.
Now don’t get me wrong – there are probably a lot of Wyoming people who find gay marriage abhorrent but what they found even worse was throwing your sister under the bus to win an election.
This is the new hero of the Left — the one who crossed party lines to put country ahead of party.
Seriously — this is a calculated political move.
Mary Cheney responded via her Facebook page. “Liz,” she wrote, “this isn’t just an issue on which we disagree – you’re just wrong – and on the wrong side of history.”
Time will tell if she winds up on the wrong side of history again — but since the left owns the narrative we are now seeing some sick and syrupy empathy for her and her recent loss to another Trump endorsed candidate.
She doesn’t care about who she steps on to get to the top she is already considering a 2024 bid for President of the United States.
Speaking to NBC in the wake of her loss, the third-term congresswoman called Trump “a very grave threat and risk to our republic,” and said defeating him will require “a broad and united front of Republicans, Democrats and independents — and that’s what I intend to be part of.”
She declined to say if she would run for president but conceded it’s “something that I’m thinking about.”
When I read this, I screamed NOOOOOO! Please God if you are there don’t let a Cheney anywhere near the Oval Office.
Lately, she has been appearing with her father in tow which many of the new left forget was a the political equivalent of Darth Vader.
Cheney described her primary loss on Tuesday night as the beginning of a new chapter in her political career as she addressed a small collection of supporters, including her father, Former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Cheney will now be forced from Congress at the end of her third and final term in January. She is not expected to leave Capitol Hill quietly.
Those who extoll her virtues and support her are all pretty much mesmerized and blinded by their hate of one man to realize that both Liz and Dick are cut form the same political cloth, Both are opportunists and both have backgrounds that should not at all be looked upon with any admiration.
When Vice President Dick Cheney left office, his approval rating stood at a staggeringly low 13 percent. Few political figures in history have been so reviled.
Of course, until he spoke up about Donald Trump making the proverbial pot calling the kettle black. How ironic that Chenery in a political video for his daughter calls Trump a threat to our republic – that he has lied to his supporters and that he has attempted to overthrow a Presidency,
Great Job, Dick – you are not just the Devil without a heart, you are a hypocrite and continue to show us that you are a reptile in a human skin.
There are those whose recollection of history only goes back to 2016 and with that indoctrinated ignorance this reviled ugly excuse for a politician is telling it like it is — crossing party lines to tell the truth and all of the other smug political BS they keep telling themselves.
Dick Cheney is like a fictitious killer similar to Jason Voorhees or Freddy Krueger; no matter what happens to him he just won’t die.
Cheney is still a tired old man that seems to have license to criticize and undermine his colleagues.
When are we all going to learn that this is the same push- me, pull-you rhetoric that generates the same bull excrement that keeps the country polarized.
He is a cudgel to even listen to and he speaks like a maniacal killer who is waiting to crack and shoot up a grade school. Hell he already shot his lawyer in the face and after an apology got away with it,
His open vitriol is very telling about his character and the American people should take notice– his daughter does not fall far from the tree.
He knows what he has done in the past and that secretly he worries that he is not fooling anyone about his part in what can be considered criminal behavior.
For many people the previous accusation would surprise many but you can look into the history of Mr. Cheney and realize that he has been a “clean up” agent for some time, and could very well be an agent that shows up whenever there needs to be a cover up.
Cheney is an admitted agent in THE SHADOW GOVERNMENT and his involvement with drug-crazed tortures conducted by the CIA with the MK Ultra Program.
Cheney is an enemy of the US Constitution; was given charge to enforce an Imperial form of Government, using “well placed programming and covering the tracks of agents” that act on behalf of the New World Order.
Dick Cheney has maintained that the Office of the Vice President enjoys a unique status that puts it beyond the rules of law — so stating that no leader (meaning Trump) is not above the law makes him a hypocrite and a liar.
Cheney has had his hands in some very important intelligence operations and has somehow been able to escape any investigation into wrong doing.
From the times of Nixon, Ford , Reagan and Bush senior, both Dick Cheney and his happy sidekick Donald Rumsfeld have always had the inside track on intelligence and have used that “intelligence” to halt any and all investigations into any shady activities performed by the alphabet agencies, and the executive arm of the government. They have also seen to it that the citizens of this country lose their basic rights and many have suffered at the hands of the government and It has been both Cheney and Rumsfeld behind the scenes encouraging and covering up illegal activity.
When the criminal element arrived at the Bush Junior camp there was already a “yellow brick road” laid out for the future of the United States. It was written in 1992 by then defense secretary Dick Cheney. The Project for the new American Century was a doctrine that was being produced and implemented little by little with the aid of a counter-part government. The strategic planning of it was done during the Clinton administration with funding from the military-industrial complex. energy companies, and right-wing foundations. This conspiracy was helmed by Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz. Cheney has acted above the law for so long that he is one of the most dangerous men in America.
Many people do not realize that Dick Cheney has a history of being carefully placed behind the curtain as a well paid “clean up” guy who has been hired for the purpose of enforcing the
Continuity of Government in times of national crisis. The idea of continuity of Government takeover has been rumored to be the agenda of the “SHADOW GOVERNMENT,” a stealthy controlling group put into play without the public’s consent.
Rumors about a SHADOW GOVERNMENT making the President a puppet has its roots in Cold War conspiracy theories. Theories that crept in during rational concerns about operating the country if nuclear war became imminent amid the “super powers.” Today the SHADOW GOVERNMENT is not a theory, but a reality.
It is now called the DEEP STATE.
The reality is that the CIA was involved with BLACK OPERATIONS which included drug-induced programming and torture throughout the Cold War. The MK ULTRA program carried over from the Nazi experiments conducted at Concentration camps where prisoners were experimented upon with psychoactive drugs. At the behest of a secret government within the U.S., sleeper assassins were created by the CIA to carry out programs of murder. Many of these experiments were featured in the movie “The Manchurian Candidate.”
The program was called Operation Artichoke. A CIA torture program that seemed to operate outside of the law expanded under the direction of CIA Director, Allen Dulles. In this program, the CIA conducted experiments that included the use of torture and attempted brainwashing techniques in order to see how much information could be extracted from individuals. The majority of the information on these programs was destroyed in 1972 shortly before deeper public investigations into the program which began in 1976. However; a few records still remain and have been made public via the Freedom of Information Act.
A shocking, well known death resulting from these programs is the death of military biochemist Frank Olson. Frank Olson died in November 1953, after having jumped out of a 13th story window, a week after having been given a dose of LSD without his knowledge by members of the CIA. The official version of the story given in 1973, is that Dr. Olson suffered a mental breakdown over the event, but no reason was ever given as to why he had ever been drugged in the first place. Investigations continued well into the 1970’s as to the events leading up to Olson’s death. It wasn’t until 1975 that Gerald Ford offered an apology to the family.
Both Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney were members of the White House Chiefs of Staff in the Ford administration. After the public revelations about Frank Olson’s supposedly drug induced suicide, his family began perusing a lawsuit for damages. After the family announced that they would sue for damages and more information, the CIA met with the family and gave them some files about their fathers death, mostly just related to autopsy information.
These files didn’t tell the family why their father was ever drugged in the first place. The Olson family was then advised that their lawsuit would not succeed and instead the Ford administration gave them $750,000 to drop the suit. Cheney and Rumsfeld told the family that perusing information about torture and mind control would be a threat to National Security. Rumsfeld and Cheney have been involved in covering up state secrets related to torture and illegal conduct for decades. Giving the excuse that this misconduct is in the interest of “security” and “intelligence.”
Men that gather intelligence on illegal activities within the government and illegal activities going on in foreign governments. With this information they are able to ascertain what they perceive as threats and report them to secret official’s within government. These secret officials are called to govern in the case of a crisis real or perceived. There is the government that rules America during peace-time. And, a counter government that rules during war or crisis. IF there is a way to pull off an illegal act, these two men know how to cover their tracks and obfuscate any investigation.
It has been theorized that certain men within the government were agents in charge and would act apart from the consent of the people, the constitution or even the President if there was a national crisis. This has been considered a criminal element run amok behind the scenes.
When Ronald Reagan was shot, there was a conflict within the administration regarding who was in charge. To help resolve this conflict, a SECRET PLAN known as the Presidential Successor Support System was devised. This advocated the use of a “SHADOW GOVERNMENT” that would be beyond the Constitution , and would rule the country.
The Reagan Administration also created the National Program Office or NPO. This was an office of the United States Government established to ensure continuity of government in the event of a national disaster. The NPO was established by a SECRET EXECUTIVE ORDER signed by President Ronald Reagan during the Cold War in preparation for a nuclear war, presumably with the Soviet Union. In addition to supplanting the executive branch, the NPO has the power to dissolve Congress.
During that time of the Reagan Administration, the agents in charge of the Continuity of Government were Vice President, George H. W. Bush, Lt. Col. Oliver North, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and James Woolsey just to name a few.
The NPO “SHADOW GOVERNMENT” was code named Pegasus. Project Pegasus was also referred to as Project 908. President Bill Clinton canceled Project Pegasus and declassified it.
After the 9-11 attacks, it was reinstated by George W. Bush and Later Barack Obama. The question is whether or not the NPO Pegasus project has been dissolved with Biden as President.
In December 2008, Dick Cheney acknowledged what many had long suspected or known: that he was instrumental in initiating the Bush Administration interrogation tactic in which detainees were blindfolded, strapped to a board, and held down as water was poured into their cavities until their lungs began to fill up with it. The intent was to trick the detainees into believing that they would drown.
Cheney had devised, and Bush approved, an NSA operation to monitor the phone calls and emails of U.S. citizens without a warrant, part of which later became known as the Terrorist Surveillance Program. After more than two years of going along with “the vice president’s special program,” the Justice Department concluded that parts of it were illegal. Deputy Attorney General James B. Comey later told Congress, and authoritative sources confirmed privately last week, that Ashcroft decided on March 4, 2004 to stop certifying the surveillance as lawful unless the White House scaled it back.
It is beyond dispute that at Dick Cheney’s urging, the federal government spied on millions of non-terrorist Americans without a warrant, and that Cheney wanted the program to continue even after it was declared illegal.
After his initial stints in government under Republican administrations, including time as George H.W. Bush’s secretary of defense, Dick Cheney entered the private sector, where he used contacts he made during his time in government to enrich himself. All told, he would earn more than $44 million from Halliburton.
After Cheney enriched himself by exploiting contacts with various corrupt Arab autocrats that he made while drawing a public salary, he returned to public life as vice president. Halliburton donated to his campaign, and got numerous lucrative contracts during the Bush administration’s tenure, even as it was discovered to have overcharged the U.S. for prior services rendered.
Dick Cheney has been the driving force behind the Bush administration’s systematic and highly successful project to expand presidential power, a push that was articulated on their first day in office, long before 9/11, and whose first battleground was the fight over whether Cheney would have to comply with open-government laws that mandated that he tell Congress and the public whom his energy task force had met with.
Cheney’s files from his days as Gerald Ford’s chief of staff in the post-Watergate/Vietnam moment show the origins of this agenda. Day upon day, the Ford White House was confronting the Church Committee’s investigations of intelligence abuses and a Congress that was determined to re-impose checks and balances on the “imperial” presidency. This seemed outrageous from Cheney’s vantage point and he spent the next three decades trying, without much success at first, to roll back the changes of the 1970s and to restore presidential power to the level it had briefly reached before Nixon fell.
During his decade in the House of Representatives, he continuously argued with his colleagues that they ought to be giving the president more flexibility, not less, especially in matters of national security and foreign affairs—not just during Iran-Contra, but throughout that decade.
As Secretary of Defense to the first President Bush, he urged George H.W. Bush to launch the Gulf War without going to Congress for approval.
Vice President Dick Cheney and his consigliere David Addington have long been associated with the doctrine of the “Unitary Executive,” the notion that all executive functions are vested in the President of the United States of America and hence that the President has the right to direct all executive officers, who, in turn are required to obey his orders.
All except the Vice-President, apparently. The New York Times reported that Cheney back in the day took the position that he is not bound by an executive order– or as they say, he too thought he was above the law.
This is the same Dick Cheney that at the urging of his daughter, Liz, did a campaign video saying that Donald Trump the “greatest ever threat to our Republic.”
That no one is above the law.
Well, if this is so bold then perhaps we certainly can’t blame Hitler for calling Stalin evil.
This is why I shudder when all see is a liberal media giving any sympathy to Liz Cheney let alone ignoring the criminality and how the Cheney’s have shown that they are nothing but two-faced backstabbers.
And now she wishes to be President. Or at least she says she wants to give it a try in 2024.
I know that perhaps we shouldn’t judge people by the sins of their fathers — but to completely ignore the actions of the Cheney’s is completely outrageous.
She is now a reality show ring master — more so than a disgraced candidate. She is part of the group that scapegoated every single man and woman who disputed the outcome of the 2020 presidential election as a racist or a proto-Nazi, even though only a small fraction of the January 6 protesters had any connection to the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Aryan Nations or Three Percenters.
But all of the lies that she has told makes her no different than her father.
This is why we have to endure the committee that pinned all the blame for the fracas on January 6th on the few hundred protesters who entered the Capitol, while not even trying to challenge federal officials who allowed a disorganized bunch of unarmed demonstrators inside what is supposed to be one of the most zealously guarded buildings in the United States.
And this, mind you, despite the fact that General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – whose consent would have been required for the deployment of National Guard or military personnel to the Capitol on January 6 told his aides (according to his book) that Trump reminded him of Hitler and that he was determined to see Joe Biden installed as President “come hell or high water.”
Once the January 6 protest is officially pronounced the work of Satan – as it will be when we finally get over the November elections – the next steps will almost certainly take aim at the future of dissent and you can expect Liz Chenery to champion everything unconstitutional like her father.
It will certainly be addressed during her Presidential bid.
Again this whole thing is not just about some unruly Trump supporters. It’s about you.
It is about how an ambitious chip off the Cheney block may be appear to be casualty of her own so called courage — but nothing this bold is done without a payoff or reward.
Political theater, meet Theater of the Absurd.
A matter of virtue signaling that could lead to the short trip to another Cheney dictatorship.
