What a Fake, Liz Cheney

Liz-Cheney

Sigh. Liz Cheney has a book, “Oath and Honor,” implying she stands for them. What a fake is Liz Cheney, self-serving and sure she is the second coming of something. She dishonors selfless service, as her father did, who sent 4,500 young Americans to death in Iraq after his five military deferments to avoid Vietnam.

Now comes Liz Cheney, filled with vim and vinegar, saying Donald Trump is “the orange Jesus” to anyone who thinks his policies were better than Joe Biden’s.

Worse, she condemns virtually every Republican she ever knew, does so with spleen, calling them “cowards” – rather ironic, don’t you think? – and says she was right about January 6th, and everything else. Liz, what about the omitted tapes?

One has to pause and marvel at her audacity, her new book, out in December. She says if the Republican Party comes to its senses, sidesteps Trump, she will – wow! – be the GOP’s nominee. If Trump, by contrast, is nominated, she leaves the Party. Right.

The first time I met young Liz Cheney, she was – as she is now – full of being a vice president’s daughter, full of her mother’s let-me-tell-you attitude, ready to find others wrong, from education to international policy, just about anything.

At that time, back in 2005, I was finishing up a tour as assistant secretary of state for Colin Powell, running his largest operational bureau, airwing of several hundred airframes, law enforcement training and deployment in 70 countries, Iraq and Afghanistan to Colombia and Kosovo. Cheney was a newly minted deputy assistant secretary of state, once worked for Rich Armitage, ready to rule the roost.

Observing her was interesting, as she instantly gave the aura of someone sure she was in the catbird seat, ready to be unquestioned, above the fray. She seemed to think, between her father and Rumsfeld’s plant at State, Rice, she had it made.

While I left soon afterward, having been more a Reagan, Bush 41, Colin Powell guy than a Rice person, the impression left by Liz Cheney lingered. Openness, accountability, authenticity, and other-regarding service do not quickly come to mind in discussing anything she did. She was a climber, simply put.

So, now we have this lovely book, all about how Ms. Cheney, following in her “Iraq Now” father’s footsteps will save the world … from what? From MAGA Republicans, who honor the Constitution, Bill of Rights, a secure border, properly respected police, limited government, strong defense, lower taxes, high growth?  

The whole thing looks like what Washington DC “does” all the time, raise a stink, play the martyr or hero, claim the sky is falling, crisis upon us, write a book, muck it up, make a buck, run for president, set up a little worship center in the den. That is surely Ms. Cheney.

Honestly, she is a lot like her father, sure she is right no matter the facts, serving her own interests first. Who with integrity, after all, pledges to screen candidates for vice president, then picks himself. Dick Cheney did. Who claims to be a patriot, then runs away five times from military service in Vietnam?

Who knows Afghanistan is the only target post 9-11, then decides to spend thousands of young American lives on Iraq? Never looks back, never apologizes, never thinks twice about his own cowardice, and frankly does not care?  

Let’s call a spade a spade, call a Cheney a Cheney, and be done with it. Some people never learn, do not want to learn. Their mission is themselves, and if they have to take out a president, twist facts to sell a book, claim sainthood, so be it. Sigh. Honestly, what a fake.

Robert Charles is a former Assistant Secretary of State under Colin Powell, former Reagan and Bush 41 White House staffer, attorney, and naval intelligence officer (USNR). He wrote “Narcotics and Terrorism” (2003), “Eagles and Evergreens” (2018), and is National Spokesman for AMAC.

With neocons like Ms Cheney and the like, the republican party will continue to be hampered as being an effective force to combat the Democrat/communists.

As I’m reading these articles, does Ms Cheney really think we’re better off with Biden/Obama then Trump. Trump isn’t perfect, but he’s much less of a threat to this country then the current regime. If she runs as a third party, I wonder who she’ll capture? More Dems than Reps? And Independents? And how did her net worth increase 500% while in office????? What a crook.

I must admit that, initially, Liz Cheney appeared to me to be a patriotic conservative. However, when she unashamedly slandered President Trump, I quickly realized that Liz Cheney is all for Liz Cheney. It was not surprising that Liz Cheney was allowed by Pelosi to be on the January 6th Committee. Pelosi picked Cheney, a rabid President Trump hater, to improve the political optics that President Trump had overstepped his role as chief executive of the United States of America. Now, that Cheney is warning us of the extreme danger to our Constitution and country posed by President Trump — there is absolutely no doubt that “Chicken Little” Cheney is totally unhinged. It’s a shame that Cheney is so unhinged that she refuses to challenge Joe Biden, the real existential threat to our Constitutional Republic. Thank you Mr. Charles for being open and honest about the real Liz Cheney.

We already knew that she was right about one thing. Kevin McCarthy is a weasel whose only value was in raising money.

Now that his money raising opportunities have dried up, hasta la vista Kevin.

“What a Fake, Liz Cheney” is more like “What a Traitor, Liz Cheney”! And US citizens were not allowed to see what was going on in Congress, all the lies, some truth. She and Nancy Pelosi are two of a kind, the same kind. How sad! Not to mention AOC was terrified for her life, but failed to state she was not in Congress on that date, another drama queen liar.

I’m very disappointed in Liz!! She drank the Democrat’s Kool-aid and then became one of them and then she lost her job! She lost her ever loving mind! There seems to be so many RINO’s in the Republican Party and that’s why they can’t get anything done – too much infighting because of the radical right and the RINOS!!

I hope someone sends this story to her. I’ve always said she was a RINO….She should leave the party and join obama/biden and the other kooks. I wouldn’t vote for any of them for even dog catcher.

Your description of Liz Cheney reminds me of another woman who couldn’t reach the top in politics: Hillary Clinton.

Hypothetical Liz. I am sadly gleeful when we hear how a great book comes out from Hillary or Liz and it fails miserably. People see them for what and who they are even if they don’t.

Lizzey Cheney took an Axe and gave Trump 40 whacks, when the Job was nicely done, she gave the Republicans 41.
I understand that if you are nice to old Liz, you might be invited to go Bird hunting with her daddy old Dick, and if you are mean, you will be invited to go Bird hunting with old Dick!

Liz is like the mother that thinks her little Johnnie is the only marching band member in step. Open your eyes Liz. You are a backstabbing traitor(just ask your former constituents).

From what I have envisioned her over the years Robert Charles is right on. Hopefully, she will continue to be a loser. She has been and will continue to be one of the most despicable people in American politics today. Her father’s daughter to be sure.

Liz Cheney is one of the most despicable people in American politics today. And that’s really saying something. She’s the embodiment of everything we righteously seek to purge from our government. She’s a power obsessed psychopath who has never been in touch with reality in the first place. Liz is definitely her father’s daughter. An unapologetic war criminal who belongs in prison.

This woman is more than despicable and fake, she is in my opinion a traitor to America and to the oath of office she took as a Representative! She is a liar and a Hippocratic and the people in Wyoming new she was and voted her out in one of worst defeat on record. She has no credibility left and should be ignore in the future. The Republican Party is greatly enhanced with the departure of Liz and all her bad behavior. All I can say now is “Good Reddens”. Go Trump, MAGA!

Dick Cheney made $Billions for the company he “formerly” owned (Halliburton) in reconstruction contracts with the government after pushing for war in Iraq. Liz is even more obviously about her perceived savior image and being in the public eye than her father. But her Jan 6 stance revealed her true feelings about conservatives (like Biden) and where her allegiance lies.
I’m sure her Dad told her to get back in the fight – it’s ‘fight for what’ that is the real truth.

I call for DOJ investigating Dick Cheney’s cash flow beginning when he was awarding no-bid military contracts to Halliburton in Iraq.
