This Is Going to Break Your Hearts

According to everyone’s favorite Republican (when Romney is not in town), Liz Cheney, her father is not at all pleased with the direction the GOP has been moving in recent years.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) says her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, is “deeply troubled” by the current Republican Party that has steered away from her family’s brand of neoconservatism toward a populist-nationalist vision.

During an Aspen Institute panel discussion alongside former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Cheney said her father is displeased with the state of the Republican Party following former President Trump’s term in the White House.

“I would just say, my dad is deeply troubled about where are our party is, deeply troubled about where our country is, and [he is] just a tremendous source of advice and guidance and wisdom for me,” Cheney said.

The remark comes after Cheney was removed from House Republican Conference Chair in May, a decision celebrated by Trump at the time.

“Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being … she is a warmonger whose family stupidly pushed us into the never-ending Middle East disaster, draining our wealth and depleting our great military, the worst decision in our country’s history,” Trump wrote in a statement.

In August 2019, Liz Cheney and Dick Cheney attended a fundraiser that supported Trump for his 2020 re-election campaign. A spokesperson for Liz Cheney, at the time, said she was “honored” to be co-hosting the fundraiser for Trump’s re-election.

“The President’s policies are benefiting Wyoming and the nation,” the spokesperson said.

As vice president to former President George W. Bush, Dick Cheney helped lead the U.S. into war in Afghanistan and Iraq with more than 4,500 Americans dying in Iraq — including more than 3,500 killed in combat — and up to 205,000 Iraqi citizens dying in the war since March 2003.

In total, the Bush-Cheney post-9/11 wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and intervention in Pakistan have resulted in the deaths of between 480,000 and 507,000 people — including nearly 7,000 American soldiers who had deployed to the regions.

    Fitting that the video you posted is in comment #2, since it is sh*t, PRP. I swear, they don’t have any ideas of their own, they just riff off of 1984 and Black Mirror, interchangeably.

    Hi folks, just stopping by for a bit. Needed a good, long break from politics.

    Not that I think she’s lying but I wouldn’t even trust her to speak for her father. Who gives two shits what she thinks anyway, she’s done, the name is done, and it’s her that’s put the final nail in the coffin of the “Cheney” name\legacy, not that it was in remotely good shape before her short stay in congress.

    In short – As I’ve said else were giving her any press even bad press is what she wants, likely Romney the best course 95% of the time is to just ignore the c__t and treat her as she is – irrelevant.

    #5 – Probably.

    Cheney (Liz & Dick), Romney, Kinzinger and the rest of the RINOs are vastly worse than Democrats.

    Actually, even as I typed that I realized the error in it. Cheney (Liz & Dick), Romney, Kinzinger aren’t “RINO”s…they ARE the new Republican Party. The handful of Americans in Congress (Ted Cruz, Jim Jordan, and a couple others) are the “RINO”s these days.

    I really wish Trump had started a new Party.

    In the movie ‘The Perfect Storm’ TWO powerful storm systems collided, and the boat trying to sail through them got crushed.

    The number of powerful storm systems colliding on America is growing every day…

    A few of the storms we are in the midst of:
    – BLM & CRT-
    – Covid (in endless variants)
    – Climate Change (the phenomenon previously known as “Cyclical Weather”)
    – Inflation
    – Defund the police, free the criminals, stop enforcing laws (selectively)
    – Socialism (with a 🙂 so far)
    – The all-out assault on Free Speech and the 2nd Amendment

    and the list goes on. And the “solution”?? Arnold Schwarzenegger expressed it perfectly the other day, in a way that Cheney, et al, must have appreciated: “Screw your freedoms!”

    Sums it up

    Saw this posted and thought “Oh! They’re getting serious about illegals?”
    But then I saw the ref to ‘citizens’.

    Army National Guard Recruits For ‘Internment’ And ‘Resettlement’ Specialist, Military Documents Lay Out Procedure For ‘Civilian Internees’ … pecialist/
    The Army National Guard is actively recruiting for a job position called “Internment/Resettlement Specialist.” People as young as seventeen years old are eligible for the gig, which includes “Search/Restraint” as “Some of the Skills You’ll Learn,” according to an Army National Guard job posting with a job location listed as Washington, D.C. Meanwhile, military documents show that the military can detain civilians here in America, including U.S. citizens. A leaked U.S. Headquarters of the Army document entitled “INTERNMENT AND RESETTLEMENT OPERATIONS” describes an official category of detained person called “civilian internee.” A Department of Defense Directive published below discussed “civilian internees” and made it clear that military detainees can be U.S. citizens.

    Here’s the full link.

    Hi, table for two, please.
    Sure, and your name.
    Great. And do you and your guest have your vaccination cards?
    We do. Can you tell us who our server will be?
    Um, looks like Brad will be your server tonight.
    Great. Can you show us Brad’s vaccination card?
    And also, can you provide me with proof that Brad is not a carrier of HIV, Hepatitis A or B, or any other communicable diseases?
    Also, we would prefer not to be served by someone who is on or uses recreational drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, meth, fentanyl, etc, so if you could provide us with Brad’s most recent tox screen, that would be great.
    Um… Let me get the manager for you.
    That would be great, thanks.”

    Texas Judge Says There Are No Kid ICU Beds: Have To ‘Wait For Another Child To Die’
    “That means if your child’s in a car wreck … and needs an ICU bed … we don’t have one,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.

    ht tps://

    “Your child will just not get on the ventilator, your child will be [airlifted to] wherever we can find them a bed,” Jenkins added. “But they won’t be getting one here unless one clears.”

    The situation for adults does not appear to be much better.

    Jenkins tweeted Friday that only 17 adult ICU beds were currently available in the county.

    Fake vaccine passports intercepted from … China. They got us coming and going LOL.
    I guess we should be grateful Biden*’s Admin is catching something coming here illegally …
    Customs and Border Protection officers in Memphis, Tennessee, seized 15 Chinese shipments of fake COVID-19 vaccination cards, part of 121 total seizures this year of 3,017 bogus cards, the agency said in a press release Friday.

    According to the release, the shipments were headed to the central business district in New Orleans, Louisiana.

    The government can likely track the numbers on those phizer vaccines to actual lots and states and probably persons.

    If you wanted to fake your vaccine you might be better off getting a fake vaccine card with the Chinese vaccine on it or the Russian one since that would just cause lots of confusion rather than the police bringing up charges like they did last week to that hawaiian family.
