“In our nation’s 246-year history there has never been an individual who is a greater threat to our Republic than Donald Trump.” So says Dick Cheney, former Defense Secretary and Vice President under the late George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, in a video clip he has paid to air on the Fox network.
More than that, Cheney has aligned himself with the election rigging Democratic machine as has his daughter Liz. “He (Trump) tried to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters rejected him. He’s a coward. A real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters.”
Again, this from Dick Cheney, the very Defense Secretary and Vice President who lied about Saddam Hussein’s so-called weapons of mass destruction and destroyed an entire nation so it could be rebuilt by the very companies he and his cronies were invested in.
Cheney had earlier directed the Operation Desert Storm in Iraqi, an operation based on a big lie spread by PR company Hill & Knowlton that Saddam Hussein’s soldiers had pulled the plug on babies in incubators in Kuwait. Cheney was also a champion of waterboarding torture for terrorism suspects. He was known by his opponents as Darth Vader and the Prince of Darkness.
This same man was also involved in the notorious “Project for the New American Century”, the blueprint for American economic and military domination of the planet and a Middle East invasion that required “a new Pearl Harbor” event to justify it. And hey presto, along came the 9-11, 2001 inside jobs on the World Trade Centre and Pentagon. Cheney was a very busy man that day.
Dick Cheney is the face of American neoconservatism – the America that runs on endless wars and military and commercial domination of the planet. It’s globalism without the kumbaya, hold-hands-across-the-universe, United Nations sentiment. It’s fascist-style globalism i.e. a combine of global corporate and government military power. Trump openly opposes such a policy.
Cheney was rightfully labelled a warmonger and that was just part of the landscape of being CEO of the weapons and oil contractor Halliburton. He was still on their payroll despite “leaving” the company to take on the office of Vice President of the US. Conflict of interest? Hell no, not for our butt-kicking tough guy Dick.
While Bush’s Vice President, Dick the trigger-happy hunter shot Texas lawyer Harry Whittington in the face, neck and chest during a quail hunting trip. They tried to cover up the incident and Cheney never apologized, but according to some reports Whittington actually apologized to Cheney for causing him such embarrassment.
Dick and backroom federal power politics go back to the Gerald Ford administration when he was the president’s chief of staff. Before that he spent some time at Yale but didn’t graduate. But Yale, being the location of the notorious Skull and Bones fraternity/brotherhood/lodge, is probably where Dicky boy did “graduate”. Interestingly, Cheney found special favour with two of the Bonesmen’s most notable graduates, the Bush senior and junior presidents.
Before her election to Congress on Trump’s coat tails in 2017, Liz already had all the right connections. She was Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs and Coordinator for Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiatives at the US State Department during the George W. Bush administration. Naturally, just like daddy, she promoted regime change in Iran while chairing the Iran Syria Policy and Operations Group with Elliott Abrams.
So, the Cheney family had every reason to consider themselves especially privileged in the political and corporate world and little Lizzie went into Congress as the “power woman” ready to kick ass just like daddy did. She quickly rose up the ranks to chair, just like daddy did, the House Republican Conference, the No.3 position in the House Republican leadership, from 2019 to 2021.
But Lizzie was beginning to fall out of favour with Trump supporters for openly opposing Trump’s foreign policy. Then in 2021 she voted with the Democrats and a group of treacherous neocon Republicans to impeach Trump a second time over the January 6th Capitol riot. Cheney was removed from her prominent party position. So how dare these upstart Trump Republicans remove a Cheney from a position of privilege and power!
Liz became the Republican Trump enemy No.1 and was subsequently invited by Nancy Pelosi to join her January 6 witch-hunt committee, set up with the objective of publicly shaming a legally harassing Trump and his supporters over the provocateur-incited January 6th riot at the Capitol.
Despite her pouting, Ms Liz has become the “star” of the January 6 show trial, with almost daily adulation from the mainstream media for her “non partisan, self-sacrificing dedication to uncovering the truth about January 6th”. Like her Democrat committee buddies, she has used the publicity to raise $13 million for her political campaign, which is already a lost cause.
Liz clearly suffered a major blow to her ego, being removed from the Republican leadership. No doubt daddy Dick felt the rejection too. She became like the jilted woman, hellbent on revenge. Her prospects of winning back her Wyoming Congressional seat are also zero, so she has been forced to seek the Democrat votes in a state that voted 70% for Trump.
Liz also offered her 2 cents worth on the Mar a Lago raid on Trump by the FBI: “America cannot remain free if we abandon the truth. The lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen is insidious,” she said. “It preys on those who love their country. It is a door Donald Trump opened to manipulate Americans to abandon their principles, to sacrifice their freedom, to justify violence, to ignore the rulings of our courts and the rule of law.”
The reality is that Trump opened a door exposing the corrupt Cheney neocon underbelly of the Republican Party – the “conservative” side of the deep state with its love affair with “special interests” and dark forces inhabiting the halls of influence and power.
This explains the Cheney family’s hatred for Trump and everything he stands for. To call Trump the greatest ever threat to the American republic in its entire history is a crazy, irrational accusation. But with Liz Cheney about to lose her Wyoming seat, the House of Cheney will be dealt a death blow by the global populist/nationalist revolution.
