  • Liz Cheney's Seat-Time To Get Cocky

    09/27/2020 6:57:03 AM PDT · by DIRTYSECRET · 27 replies
    Solid red state with an 'establishment' GOP representative. POTUS should endorse her Democrat opponent just b4 election day. With a GOP surge we can afford one loss for 2 years. Put a real scare into all the never-Trumpers. She had no business running in the Senate primary against an established GOP Senator while carpetbagging from Va. She wanted the easy way in without working hard-entitlement. Now the 'difficult' choice for her is to stay on as a future Speaker or move to the upper chamber when the old guy quits. I say nip it in the bud right in front...

    Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney on Thursday joined Republican and Democratic legislators in criticizing President Donald Trump's comment about whether he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the Nov. 3 presidential election. Trump told reporters on Wednesday that he would “have to see what happens" when asked about whether he’d commit to a peaceful transfer of power. Thursday morning, Cheney responded to the comment in a tweet: "The peaceful transfer of power is enshrined in our Constitution and fundamental to the survival of our Republic. America’s leaders swear an oath to the Constitution. We will uphold...

    House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) denounced the far-right QAnon conspiracy theory as a “dangerous lunacy,” becoming the highest-ranking GOP lawmaker to condemn it. “QAnon is a dangerous lunacy that should have no place in American politics,” Cheney said in a statement on Thursday.Cheney’s comment came one day after President Trump told reporters that he doesn’t “know much about the movement other than I understand they like me very much, which I appreciate.” Cheney, the No. 3 Republican in the House, has previously clashed with Trump on a host of issues, causing high-profile public breaks with the president. The...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said on Sunday that pardoning former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden “would be unconscionable” after President Trump said he was considering the idea at a recent press conference. “Edward Snowden is a traitor. He is responsible for the largest and most damaging release of classified info in US history. He handed over US secrets to Russian and Chinese intelligence putting our troops and our nation at risk,” Cheney, the No. 3 Republican in the House, tweeted on Sunday afternoon, adding; “Pardoning him would be unconscionable.” A day before Cheney’s comments, Trump said...

    The fiery clash this week in the House between Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and a group of conservative lawmakers has triggered a broader conversation among GOP members about the future path of the party and Cheney’s own political career. Cheney, a scion who rose to be the No. 3 House Republican by her second term in the House, found herself on the receiving end of attacks about her leadership style and loyalty to President Trump at a closed-door caucus meeting Tuesday. Members who witnessed the clash described it as a “coordinated attack” led by Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.),...

    CNN ^ | 22 July | By Manu Raju
    Sen. Rand Paul, a long-time critic of Rep. Liz Cheney, joined the conservative pile-on of the Wyoming Republican, saying on Wednesday: "I don't think she's good for the country" and accused her of trying to "sabotage" President Donald Trump's foreign policy. Paul, a libertarian-minded Republican, has long sparred with Cheney, who supports hawkish views on national security. And asked about House conservatives lashing out at Cheney behind closed doors, Paul joined in on the criticism in an interview with CNN. "I mean she tries to sabotage everything he tries to do in foreign policy, so I don't know whether she's...

    From sea to shining sea, crime is surging and gunfire rings throughout the night. In some cities, anarchists smash windows and set fires, aiming to set up autonomous zones. In response, President Trump threatens to dispatch federal troops unless local officials stop the chaos. In their response to him, Democratic governors and mayors tell the president to buzz off. Oregon’s attorney general even sues to stop Homeland Security agents from making arrests in riot-torn Portland, and Mayor de Blasio promises the feds would get the same rude welcome in Gotham. “If he tried to do it, it would only create...

    How an Americanist devoted to destroying international alliances became the US envoy to the UNIn the heat of the battle over the Florida vote after the 2000 US presidential election, a burly, mustachioed man burst into the room where the ballots for Miami-Dade County were being tabulated, like John Wayne barging into a saloon for a shoot-out. "I'm with the Bush-Cheney team, and I'm here to stop the count," drawled John Bolton. And those ballots from Miami-Dade were not counted.Now that same John Bolton has been named by President Bush as the US ambassador to the UN. "If I were...

    Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the third ranking Republican in the House, is publicly taking on President Donald Trump — and unlike with most of his other critics, the President seems wary to hit back. Cheney, who is the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, has broken with Trump on policy before, but she has become increasingly outspoken in recent months. This week, she demanded to know why Trump was unaware of intelligence pointing to Russian bounties on American and coalition troops in Afghanistan. And last week, she indirectly took a swipe at Trump by tweeting a picture of...

    Breitbart ^ | July 2nd | Sen. Rand Paul
    ... But in examining the leaker’s motives, it is important to ask further: Who benefits?Sure, the usual partisan Democrats benefit. But let’s not miss that the war caucus (a.k.a. the Never-Trump neocon warmonger playgroup) is using this leaked rumor to advocate for staying indefinitely in Afghanistan. As President Trump tries to end America’s longest war, the usual forever war advocates like Liz Cheney are using this so-called “intelligence” to criticize the president for trying to end the Afghan War.The Defense Authorization bill before the Senate bashes the president’s push to end the war by stating that any attempt to leave...

    She’s scolded President Trump for continuing to push a false smear that “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough had murdered a congressional aide. She took a veiled jab at Trump and his allies in the White House and on Capitol Hill for not wearing masks during the coronavirus pandemic. And just this week, she expressed alarm at why the president and vice president had not been briefed on intelligence that Russia had offered to pay the Taliban a bounty to kill U.S. troops. Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.), the highest-ranking GOP woman in the Capitol and the daughter of former Vice President...

    Count Liz Cheney and her dad among those attempting to shame all Americans into wearing face masks in the age of the coronavirus. The Wyoming representative tweeted a photo of former Vice President Dick Cheney on Friday in a cowboy hat and mask, captioned, "Dick Cheney says WEAR A MASK. #realmenwearmasks." CNN calls it "a shot at the manhood of people who refuse to wear face coverings in a seeming jab at President Donald Trump." It's not the first time the younger Cheney has bucked the president: in March, she called for the US to deal first with the coronavirus...

    Washington Examiner ^ | June 26 | Kerry Picket
    Rep. Thomas Massie isn't in a forgive-and-forget kind of mood. The libertarian-leaning House member on Tuesday crushed his Republican primary opponent 88%-12% in the northern Kentucky district he's represented since 2013. That despite several high-profile House Republicans initially backing, and sending campaign contributions to, his primary opponent. House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming in the spring criticized Massie over delaying tactics on passage of a coronavirus economic relief bill. The proposal became law, but not before Massie used parliamentary tactics to force lawmakers to return to Washington as the pandemic worsened. The feud was an extension of tensions...

    Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney posted a photo of former Vice President Dick Cheney sporting a face mask on Friday and took a shot at the manhood of people who refuse to wear face coverings in a seeming jab at President Donald Trump. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, posted the photo her father as lawmakers push harder for their constituents to wear face masks to limit the spread of coronavirus. Trump has been loath to wear a mask, despite the advice of public health experts. "Dick Cheney says WEAR A MASK. #realmenwearmasks," the younger Cheney tweeted Friday along with...

    Why draw the line at Spain - why not have Republican officials tried in Cuba for maintaining a blockade? Even if the worst that happens is that former President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and all those who served in their administrations find it advisable not to visit Spain or take international flights that stop off there, it is intolerable that persecution more appropriate to Robert Mugabe should be visited upon former public servants of the most powerful democracy on earth. If such infamy has already been achieved by President Pantywaist in his first 100 days, what further disasters can the...
