EXPLAINING LIZ CHENEY TO OVERSEAS READERS AGAIN

liz cheney is garbageBefore moving on to my usual weekend blog posts of lighter fare, here is a post explaining Liz Cheney, her warmonger father, etc. 

mascot donkey and republican headsOverseas readers have been asking me about the Republican Liz Cheney’s role in the illegitimate January 6th idiocy in Congress. Since Balladeer’s Blog is an Independent Voter site I’ve always made it clear I would be fine if both the Democrats and Republicans splintered into multiple smaller parties because neither one represents the needs of their constituents at this time. That’s why people know they will get a response from me that is NOT motivated by political party bias.

I would love to be able to describe the situation without having to discuss the Donald Trump angle, but our insane media loves to pump up ratings by making EVERYTHING about Trump, so there is no way around it. Links to news items regarding the following remarks are presented below.

To begin with, Liz Cheney is political garbage from the Republican Party. Her father is THE Dick Cheney, Vice President under the repulsive and disastrous George W Bush. (Remember the much lauded movie Vice? That’s her “daddy.”) Her father’s conflicts of interest and blood-soaked ways of making money off the Middle East conflicts that the Bush-Cheney Administration LIED THE COUNTRY INTO are still relevant.

LIZ CHENEY REPRESENTS EVERYTHING AND EVERY POLICY THAT THE REST OF THE WORLD CONDEMNED AMERICA FOR OVER THE COURSE OF NEARLY A DECADE. She and her family are part of the obscenely corrupt and callous Bush Family wing of the Republican Party. The wing of open-ended warfare, of looking for new countries to invade, of contempt for the working class and the poor and so many other abuses.

The Cheney-Bush Republicans have been feuding with Donald Trump over the years for a number of reasons, INCLUDING the way that Trump kept Jeb Bush out of the White House in 2016. The horrific Bush-Cheney wing felt Jeb Bush, part of one of the most corrupt and harmful political families in history, “deserved” the presidency. There is no need to choose sides in this, of course, but don’t believe the way that the Democrats’ media outlets are depicting Liz Cheney like she cares about anything except putting the disgusting Cheney-Bush Republicans back in the driver’s seat.

democrat republican or awakeAnd remember, even if you hate Donald Trump, another reason the Cheney-Bush Warmongers opposed him is because HE KEPT THE U.S. OUT OF ANY NEW WARS. Even the most anti-Trump media outlets in the U.S. are often willing to concede that point. AND SINCE THE CHENEY-BUSH WING OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WANTS ALL-WAR, ALL THE TIME, WITH VAGUE OBJECTIVES THAT THEY CAN ALWAYS CLAIM HAVEN’T BEEN MET YET, THAT IS WHY LIZ CHENEY AND HER ILK BASH TRUMP. If you back her, you’re backing open-ended warfare, among other things.   

Our country’s Democrat Media outlets are, of course, painting Liz as “the good guy” because they are still motivated by their bizarre and obsessive anti-Trump hysteria AND because, as anyone can understand, the more in-fighting among Republicans, the more that helps the Democrats. Any political party’s media outlets would encourage in-fighting among their opponents.

A bigger problem comes in with the way America’s notoriously dishonest and shallow media reflexively canonizes ANYONE who criticizes Trump. That is why we have seen some of the ugliest political grifters in decades get lionized by the media if they bash Trump, and all the facts get ignored in the mad rush to side with them.

Even if you really, really hate Donald Trump, we have had several years now to see that reactionary anti-Trump hysteria prompts some people to instantly revere some horrible people. Look at Governor Andrew Cuomo’s now-exposed coverup of his negligent slayings of the elderly in New York elder-care facilities AND of his repeated sexual assaults. Just because he and Trump were in public disagreement, the disgusting Cuomo was being hailed for his (now revealed as lies) “press briefings” on Covid. Democrats even gave him an Emmy for them before the truth came out, remember?

For additional reminders of the way our irrational and dementedly partisan media acts like “disagreement with Trump washes away all crimes and sins”:

mccain warmonger*** John McCain, the racist Republican warmonger who did more than anyone else to try to stop America from having its first African-American president, was, of course, LATER treated like a statesman by the Democrats’ media outlets because he feuded with Trump. Hell, if you have a short memory or were too young to have noticed it, John McCain was, once upon a time being likened to Hitler, etc. For just one small (and light-hearted) example, you can still see Family Guy reruns like the one depicting the time-traveling Stewie and Brian encountering Nazis in the World War Two era wearing John McCain buttons. (The cartoon dates from around when McCain and Sarah Palin were running for president and vice president in real life.)

*** China, a government of slave labor, criminal abuses against the health of its own citizens and atrocious, repressive treatment of Hong Kong, gets gentle treatment from the Democrats’ media outlets for, among other reasons, the way the oppressive Chinese government was opposed and criticized by Trump. After all, our media reasons, NOTHING could be worth criticizing about a government which Trump criticized. Even if that government’s system has declared homosexuality to be a mental illness here in the 21st Century.

*** Mitt Romney, when he ran for president, was being likened to Hitler, and will be again if he gets his apparent wish to run for president again in 2024. But during news cycles in which he criticizes Trump the Democrats’ media outlets depict him in such glowing terms you’d think they never heard of Bain Capital or dogs on car roofs or “Binders Full of Women” and so much else.

I could understand someone feeling that they don’t want to root for either side in this, but siding with Liz Cheney just because of pathological hatred of Trump is absurd.

    EXPLAINING LIZ CHENEY TO OVERSEAS READERS AGAIN

    This woman lied when she said she was a Republican. That is why it is so hard for women to get ahead in the ranks because of women like her who lie to get ahead. The acorn Liz didn’t fall far from the tree.

  4. To me she is the “face” of the war being fought between the elites and the people. They have such an institutional edge, all we have are numbers. If people would just figure it out.

  5. Can’t disagree with any of that. I have a favor to ask of my newest eBFF: I haven’t watched the Jan6 stuff because I assume it is all lies. Did you watch it for me? Did I miss anything?

    Love your blog!

    • Thanks! I watched as much of it as I could stand. I never liked Trump’s daughter or son-in-law so her bit didn’t bother me, but the way Liz Cheney left out part of Trump’s remarks was nauseating, as is the way the January 6th committee pretends it is legitimate despite the fact that for the first time the minority party’s leaders did not get to pick their own Congressional members to serve on a committee and had the majority party reject their choices and instead go with openly biased stooges like Cheney and Kinzinger as the alleged reps from the minority party. Plus overall, it was laughable when it came to the Democrat pretense that the Capitol building is sacrosanct and their hypocritical act that they suddenly care about decorum and have reverence for our system. You didn’t miss anything.

  6. My husband worked for her as an executive secretary when she was at the U.S. State Department during the Bush years. She was to promote democracy in the Middle East. She never learned his name or who he actually was. She was too busy for that sort of thing.

    The kicker was that he was the only white male secretary in the building. So go figure.

    As for the rest of it, he disliked her because of her careless ways of simply ignoring things.

  7. Liz Cheney is the Nancy Pelosi of the Republican Party: self-serving, dishonest, fanatical, and down-right evil. She should just change her party affiliation to Democrat. John McCain was part of that whole Russian collusion hoax and the fake dossier scandal. The GOP tried to cover it up. And don’t forget that Romney was McCain’s friend, so he was probably part of it, too. Jeff Sessions refused to go after Hillary Clinton because so many GOP were in bed with the Clintons, and he was afraid. The GOP are just as guilty as the Democrats when it comes to elitism and ignoring the American people. But, I think they are waking up to the extent of corruption in the Democratic Party and how much damage the party has done to the country. After all, the Democrats could not have gotten away with the things they are doing if the GOP had not been complicit and looked the other way.

    • Oh, I agree about the establishment Republicans’ role in all this, but they are always so clearly outmaneuvered and left in the Democrats’ dust that they seem like despicable clowns. I view the Democrats at present as the active menaces, the elected Republicans are quislings and collaborators.
