    Specifically, Cheney pointed to members of the incoming class of congressional Democrats who may implore likely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to take up such an agenda. "We have a lot of Democrats now coming in who are socialists. I'm not exaggerating, they are socialists," Cheney said during a panel on Fox News Sunday. "And I think that it's very important that we actually do have very aggressive and clear policy debates. We've got to make sure that we understand the grave national security threat that's out there, as well as the threat that we're facing from the perspective of...

    Here is video of Fox News' Megyn Kelly telling Democrat Rep. Jerrold Nadler, "Let me educate you," about the facts regarding the supposed CIA "torture" interrogations. Kelly was talking with Nadler about former Vice-President Dick Cheney's criticism of Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama for going forward with investigations of Bush-era CIA operatives who interrogated terrorist suspects. Kelly was "educating" Nadler about the idea that CIA agents should be subjected to investigation when they were following legal advice at the time. She also educated him that Career Prosecutors at the Department of Justice looked into this five years ago...

John Hannah, who worked on Trump's State Department transition team, has not been accused of any wrongdoing at this point, but he is affiliated with two men who are already being questioned by Mueller.

    Cheney Says U.S. Should Restart Enhanced Interrogation Programs Cheney Says U.S. Should Restart Enhanced Interrogation Programs Former Vice President Dick Cheney told Fox Business Thursday that he thinks the CIA should restart and improve on post 9/11-era enhanced interrogation programs. “If it were my call, I would not discontinue those programs. I'd have them active and ready to go,” he said. “And I'd go back and study them and learn." Cheney commented on the matter following a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Wednesday in which Trump’s nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, said she would not have the CIA return to...

    snip Informed sources in both Moscow and Kiev have told TIME that Tymoshenko has reached a deal with the Kremlin, under which she would be more considerate of Russia's needs — particularly for long-term rights to its Black Sea naval base at Sevastopol — and would tone down her traditional anti-Moscow diatribes, and in return she may find Russia more flexible when it comes to negotiating next year's prices for the natural gas on which Ukraine depends. However, Tymoshenko firmly denies rumors of any accommodation with foreign powers, insisting that she abides only by the interests of Ukraine. Rumors of...

    In an interview that aired Thursday on Fox Business Network’s “Morning with Maria,” former Vice President Dick Cheney offered an assessment of the current threats to the United States and declared that long-term, China presents the “most serious” threat. “My concern is, I sense that there are several rising at once,” Cheney said. “We say it’s the Russians, or it’s the Chinese. I think the Chinese long-term are the most serious, have the most capability, and have made some phenomenal gains economically, which they’re now converting to better military capability, and so forth.” (please see link for full article)

    Somehow, I doubt this will help Gina Haspel to a winning vote on confirmation. Fox Business Channel host Maria Bartiromo caught up with former VP Dick Cheney and discussed the renewed debate over enhanced interrogation techniques (EITs) that took place in the nominee’s confirmation hearing yesterday on Capitol Hill. Haspel got criticized for not condemning the practices as immoral even though she affirmed that she would not implement them even if ordered to do so by the president.Cheney said that’s exactly what Donald Trump should do — bring back the waterboard and everything else: Former Vice President Dick Cheney...

    Cornell Republicans are worried that students may have collected as many as 88 tickets to lower turnout for Tuesday’s Dick Cheney lecture in a move taken without seeking approval from the student organizations leading the protest against the former U.S. vice president. Marco Antonio Peralta-Ochoa, freshmen representative-at-large for the Student Assembly, approached members of the Cornell Republicans and admitted to collecting dozens of tickets “countless times” in what Weston Barker, current C.R. freshmen representative and incoming treasurer, considered a serious, 45 minutes to 1 hour-long conversation in Amit Bhatia Libe Cafe last Wednesday. Peralta-Ochoa declined to comment to The Sun...

    A vice president is never more important than at the instant of being chosen, because the choice tells you so much about the person who does the picking. When the doors are closed, George W. Bush doesn't have to listen to advice or stroke Republican egos; he can say what he pleases. John McCain? asked a friend. Gimme a break, said Bush. Ohio Congressman John Kasich, Bush argued, isn't ready for the job. Pro-choice Pennsylvanian Tom Ridge might cost him too many pro-life votes in states where a point or two will make the difference. And it has been clear...

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney says Russia's alleged interference in the U.S. presidential election could be interpreted by some as an "act of war." "There was a very serious effort made by Mr. Putin and his government, his organization, to interfere in major ways with our basic, fundamental democratic processes," Cheney said, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin. "In some quarters that would be considered an act of war." Cheney's statement comes at a time when both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees are investigating alleged Russian meddlin in the election that brought President Donald Trump to...

    So, given the state of the party today, how much credence do we give advice coming from a "close" (former) adviser to Senator John McCain? The Republican strategist who helped Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman prepare for a possible presidential run says the Republican party is in for a devastating defeat if its guiding lights are Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and Dick Cheney. "If it's 2012 and our party is defined by Palin and Limbaugh and Cheney, then we're headed for a blowout," says strategist John Weaver, who advised Huntsman and was for years a close adviser to Sen. John McCain....

He says there will be 10s of millions of paid agitators, who will cause massive chaos in the streets of America. By the way Robert Steele is highly respected and vetted. It is surprising who Steele is warning Trump against in this video. He says that Dick Cheney is trying to overthrow President Trump. Of course, we knew that there are many trying to overthrow...

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 12 — A former Iraqi intelligence officer who was said to have met with the suspected leader of the Sept. 11 attacks has told American interrogators the meeting never happened, according to United States officials familiar with classified intelligence reports on the matter.

Under questioning he has said that he did not meet with Mohamed Atta in Prague, according to the officials, who have reviewed classified debriefing reports based on the interrogations.
