    Default Dick Cheney’s new group is all about Rand Paul

    Dick Cheney’s new group is all about Rand Paul

    The op-ed penned by former vice president Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz that appeared in the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday is probably what you'd expect from the Cheneys. It argues that President Obama's administration has weakened America's global standing; Obama, they write, "seems determined to leave office ensuring he has taken America down a notch." The crux of the argument:

    It is time the president and his allies faced some hard truths: America remains at war, and withdrawing troops from the field of battle while our enemies stay in the fight does not "end" wars. Weakness and retreat are provocative. U.S. withdrawal from the world is disastrous and puts our own security at risk.

    Cheney's opponents on the left wasted no time in responding. The Atlantic's James Fallows compared the piece to Cheney's arguments for going into Iraq in the first place. Jonathan Chait at New York magazine suggested that the Cheneys want to call Obama a traitor, but never quite get there.

    It should be apparent, though, that the Cheneys' target audience wasn't really America at large, and almost certainly wasn't liberals who are unlikely to reconsider their existing opinions of the former VP. Instead, the audience is Republicans. More specifically, Republicans inclined to support a 2016 candidacy by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).

    Remember when people were mad that Randal endorsed and supported Mike Enzi? Can you imagine if this wench had gotten her talons into the senate instead? Good call Sen. Paul.

    I didn't realize Cheney was such a down home everyman. I have a hard time understanding the words but he just feels like me. Yeah, war I guess. /sarcasm
    I'm a moderator, and I'm glad to help. But I'm an individual -- my words come from me. Any idiocy within should reflect on me, not Ron Paul, and not Ron Paul Forums.

    On CNN this morning, the left pundit was deflecting criticism of Obama in the Cheney screed by saying that it is really aimed at Rand Paul. They may be right about that.

    The neoconservatives are on the march again, calling for more war. No surprise there. Deja vu, all over again. Wrong then, wrong now.

    The Cheney name is political poison. They have nerve saying $#@! like this.
    "The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." —Jeff Cooper

    Even neocons are getting sick of the wars.

    Cheney and his ilk have an uncontrollable bloodlust and can't wait to run their fingers over the wood grain of coffins. They want to feed them to the MIC like wood to a wood chipper.

    They didn't. Which is why they are trying to covertly poison the wells against Rand Paul but overtly pretending to diss Obama. $#@! Cheney knows if he comes right out against Rand Paul he will all but guarantee Rand's election.

    They claim that they want to reverse Obama's policies:

    We are forming the Alliance for a Strong America, a non-profit 501(c)(4) organization, because we know that America’s security depends upon reversing President Obama’s policies.
    Then they call for strengthening his policies though neocon code words:

    • advocate for the policies needed to restore American power and pre-eminence;
    • provide information to citizens, policymakers and candidates about the critical national security issues facing the nation;
    • explain the indispensable role America and American power must play in the world in order to defeat the broad array of threats we face today;
    • fight to restore the strength of America's military -- the greatest fighting force and the greatest force for good the world has ever known; and
    • ensure that national security issues are a critical part of America’s national debate and discussion in the coming years and beyond.

    So I see the IRS didn't have any problem delaying the 501(c) status and organization for one of the most wanted of 'Crimes Against Humanity' & War Crimes.


    WTF?
    'Alliance for a Strong America, a non-profit 501(c)(4) organization'
    Should be a wake up call there's a party of one (Elites & their Fasacist partnerships) and enslavement/imprisoning standard for the American mundanes. Where's the outcry; TEA PARTY, CONSTITUTIONALISTS, LIBERTARIANS, CONSERVATIVES, etc?

    Dick & Liz establishment criminal Fascists get an immediate 501(c) rubberstamp approval from the IRS? Oh, how convenient Dick and Liz Cheney even state they are attacking Obama and to donate to their 'rigged game', and didn't have years of waiting like Tea Party, Constitutionalist, etc groups. You don't need to be hit in the head with a Ball Bean Hammer to realize this country's government is run by organized crime syndicate and the people are cattle to the government.

    Don't worry. The next heart attack will be the last heart attack and Cheney will go to someplace much worse than jail. And he won't get out.

    Yes, I knew exactly what she represented. Cheney had to be defeated at any cost. We don't need her ilk infecting the Senate and media for the next 30 years.
