dick cheney not afraid of obama thugocracy

dick cheney not afraid of obama thugocracy

dick cheney not afraid of obama thugocracy

no ulterior motives or agenda.

he doesn’t need the money – he has many millions. he isn’t running for office – been there, done that. he isn’t playing with white house interns so he’s not parsing his ‘is’s’. and he apparently isn’t afraid of The One’s ‘paybacks’.

here are some very brief clips of vp cheney on ‘face the nation’ yesterday. he was magnificent: self assured and confident yet without the pompous arrogance we are sadly seeing today. watch the clips. you can see he isn’t afraid to say how he feels about what’s going on today in obama’s america.


on gitmo terrorists coming to the united states


no regrets on enhanced interrogation techniques


on colin powell and rush limbaugh



the thugs on the left are apparently having a heyday with this last clip. ‘wut? the gop chooses a fat, white drug addict over a war hero?!? bwhahahah!’

they just don’t get him and never will.

i have always loved vp cheney and i’m so glad he hasn’t just disappeared. we’re probably all awate that he has in recent days had some advice for the gop – don’t moderate. i am with him on this. why even have a 2-party system if we homogenize?

and it seems vp cheney has taken on an interesting role, post bush administration, that i haven’t really seen mentioned anywhere else: he is fearlessly outspoken, patiently schooling conservatives; helping us to regroup; reminding us of the fundamental beliefs and values and ideas … what the role of government should be in our society, and our commitment to the Constitution and constitutional principles.

and he’s doing all of this in his unflappable, calming, cheney-way that drew ‘conservative loyalty’ to him in the first place.

whether it’s the infamous torture memos or colin powell’s defection, he’s not backing down to the obama thugocracy and i so like it.

    Cheney sucked on FTN. He was nervous. He fidgeted. He looked sideways a lot. He blinked constantly. Sure sign of lies from Darth Creepy Overlord.

  • PenniePan says:

    Oh God! Dick the dick Cheney is an evil and dishonest lying bastard. What do you mean he was nervous, fidgeting, blinking??? If his mouth is moving, he’s lying for God sakes! He’s the devil, he really is and Bush is his lap dog. The whole 9/11 thing happening so early in their presidency enabling all their evil plots to unfold without question. Barack would not have to clean up all of this crap if it weren’t for Dick Cheney. I hate even looking at his pasty white face.

  • JC says:

    From the post:

    “And he’s doing all of this in his unflappable, calming, Cheney-way that drew ‘conservative loyalty’ to him in the first place.”

    What the hell are you smoking?? You can thank Bush and Cheney for giving us Obama! I am a conservative and on this one I am agreeing with the 2 liberals comments.

  • PenniePan says:

    I am waiting for the moment when Barack finally decides he’s had enough of the Dick’s mouth and with that charming smile, calls his bluff, proving the torture and human rights violations their administration perpetuated on people.

  • Marsha says:

    Oh geez. You moonbats become insane at the very mention of Vice President Cheney. The One needs to release ALL of the EIT including any from the Bush administration; the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    Sunlight and fresh air are actually great disinfectants even with liberal lies. But we all know that The One controls the message and he really doesn’t want the truth in the public because too many Democrats have fingerprints all over the EIT’s. Instead he wants conspiracy nut moonbats like YOU to keep the pot stirred, ginning up rumors, so that perception becomes reality.

    It doesn’t matter what you all say. We love Vice President Cheney and appreciate him.

  • Jared says:

    Cheney’s credibility and public image are close to non existent so who is really listening to him anyway? Well, other then Kate.

  • Pat says:

    In just listening to the 2nd video, Cheney says “Hundreds of thousands” saved.

    Well the worst attack we ever had took 3,000.

    So to have saved hundreds of thousands of lives, they either had to have stopped at least 150 9/11 scale attacks. Right?

    It shouldn’t be very hard to truth test the hundreds-of-thousands notion.

    I bet they got all the Al Qaeda WMD but were too modest to tell us.

  • PenniePan says:

    Pat that is “hundreds of thousands” of American lives, he must mean. The only ones that matter to him. Because he’s sure not counting the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives the their war cost.

  • Joamie says:

    Dick Cheney’s whole adult life has been in service to this country! Shame on those of you who would just write him off as some crazy man-behind-the-curtain! It is truely telling that you would put your faith in Barack Obama who is inexperienced in everything and discount someone like Cheney.

    If you look at Cheney’s life, his associates, his practices in congress, his overall life, they are far and above more desirable then that puff-headed ego maniac Obama who in the state house voted 4 times to kill children actually born alive during botched abortions, palled around with known terrorists of this country, was mentored by radical racists.

    Some day the choice you made on November 4th and gloat about today on this blog will come back to haunt you and sadly all of us.

  • kate says:

    hey paul – ‘Sure sign of lies from Darth Creepy Overlord.’ is this an exhibition of cheney derangement syndrome or just a marvel comics character?

    penniepan – ‘The whole 9/11 thing happening so early in their presidency enabling all their evil plots to unfold without question.’ you’re harping again. be thankful that today, at this moment, you are safe because of the bush/cheney administration.

    you also said this ‘…I am waiting for the moment when Barack finally decides he’s had enough…’ completely and utterly hilarious!

    pat: ‘It shouldn’t be very hard to truth test the hundreds-of-thousands notion. and how will you do that? use dominos or legos or what?

    joamie: ‘Some day the choice you made on November 4th and gloat about today on this blog will come back to haunt you and sadly all of us.’ unfortunately i fear that will be true. thanks for your post.

  • kate says:

    jc you said ‘I am a conservative and on this one I am agreeing with the 2 liberals comments.’

    i highly doubt you are a conservative especially if you ‘agree’ with these liberal comments. scat troll.

  • Ken says:

    Much like Bush, they’re just pissed because they couldn’t vote him out or impeach him out.

    I love it!!!!

  • Simpson says:

    What’s “amazing” is that after all we know now about Abu Graib and Guantanamo Bay you still support him. Here is the issue that Cheney will need to live with the rest of his sorry life:

    Torture is ILLEGAL, under American law, and under international law. PERIOD. Even if the EIT’s saved a million lives (and it definitely did not), it is still illegal.

    Aside from that, even if by some bizarre stretch of the imagination it wasn’t illegal and immoral, the fact remains:

    IT DOES NOT WORK.

    The experts at interrogation say that pain makes the subject clam up, and if you do “break” them, they give you bad information. It also takes LONGER to get this bad information than rapport-building does.

    Not to mention the fact that it strengthens recruiting by Al Qaeda, because it simply reinforces their view of America as “evil”.

    To hell with Cheney and his “I saved you”. He needs to be prosecuted. His excuses for what they authorized and he is STILL promoting mean nothing.

  • Ted says:

    Good analysis, kate.

    The majority of the idiots who thrive at sites like DU and the Koskiddies are of the (conspiracy) theory that Cheney is only trying to save himself, which makes no sense (do libs ever?) since the worst thing he could do, if that were the case, is to continue to draw attention to it.

    Cheney is strongly convinced that he’s saying is the case, there’s no doubt about that. As you noted, he has nothing financially or politically to gain from it. And he’s right, the country is less safe with Dear Leader at the helm. But Americans should automatically know that when they vote a Dem/lib into office that we as a country are going to drop our guard and play the “appeasement” game. That just comes with the territory. Why citizens want to pretend as though al-Qaeda and various groups like them will go away, or that they can be reasoned with, is beyond comprehension, but they do.

    It was noted on several pol sites and blogs shortly after 9-11 that a lot of libs were acting as though we weren’t even attacked, and there was mention that it seems the only way they will ever wake up would be if we were attacked again. I never took that position. I told several that it wouldn’t matter if we were attacked again, the libs still would fall back into pre 9-11 mode just as quickly as they had already done. About the only way the left would wake up is if the large cities were hit virtually day after day after day by dirty bombs and/or suicide bombers. I’m talking about on average 10-20,000 citizens killed everyday for a few months. And even then, I have my doubts if the libs would wake up.

    These militant Islamics were hoping for their holy war after 9-11. Problem is enough of the Muslim world didn’t rally behind them, and not out of their desire not to as much as Bush disrupted them too quickly for them to get it together. The terrorists now know that they’re going to have to do some thing really big. Pakistan having nukes is a big prize for them, but even if they don’t get that, they’ll eventually get nukes, attack Israel, and that’ll be it. There’s going to be a world war in the ME, that whole area is ripe for revolution, it’s just a matter of when. That Dear Leader has forsaked his Constitutional duty to defend the USA will just mean that much longer and that many more lost lives it’ll take for the USA to regroup when the time comes. Because the time is coming.

  • Ken says:

    “Not to mention the fact that it strengthens recruiting by Al Qaeda, because it simply reinforces their view of America as “evil”.”

    Nonsense. Obama has done more to Al Qaeda recruiting through his weakness than Bush/Cheney did by bombing them into the stone age.

  • Simpson says:

    @Ted

    What a crock. Don’t lay this at Obama’s feet!!!! In the first Gulf War, Iraqi soldiers surrendered in droves. Just gave up, without a shot fired. I know. I was there.

    Why? Because, having seen all those WWII movies and believing WE were the good guys, they figured they’d be treated BETTER by the Americans than by their own commanders. And for the most part, they were.

    You don’t fight somebody who’s going to feed you and treat you decently, especially if your own commanders AREN’T doing that.

    Today? That would NEVER, EVER happen.

    It will take YEARS before it will happen again.

    Bottom line – torture killed, and will keep killing, OUR troops, because our enemy will FIGHT now, and many of them would have SURRENDERED before. On top of that, we’ve made MORE enemies by killing innocent people. Those enemies will last for years, perhaps generations.

    Quit using a future 9/11 to smear people who disagree with you.

  • Ken says:

    “Bottom line – torture killed, and will keep killing, OUR troops, because our enemy will FIGHT now, and many of them would have SURRENDERED before.”

    So naturally, you have a link to a study of all the insurgents who were polled and they responded that they WOULD have surrendered if it weren’t for torture, right?

    “On top of that, we’ve made MORE enemies by killing innocent people. Those enemies will last for years, perhaps generations.”

    I see. Does that mean Obama’s killing of innocent civilians in Pakistan will create enemies that last for years and generations? Or is it only when a Republican does it?

    “Quit using a future 9/11 to smear people who disagree with you.”

    Because all the bad guys gave up now, is that it?

  • Ted says:

    Looks like what I said hit a nerve with some thin-skinned wimp. Good.

    >>Simpson said: What a crock. Don’t lay this at Obama’s feet!!!! ………..

    I’ll lay it at whoever’s feet I deem appropriate and you’ll do nothing to stop me. However you can pretend to be a tough little keyboard commando as long as kate will let you. Go ahead, I could use the laughs.

    I know way, way too many good fellow citizens whom I trust, both currently in the military and who have retired, that disagree with your foolish accessment. Your words mean nothing because you are nothing.

  • Max says:

    To paraphrase a line from a popular film back in the day:

    “Sniff. Ah, I love the smell of moonbats crapping their drawers in the morning!”

    Simpson chose an appropriate moniker. If he knew what he was yammering about, then he’d recognize that Nancy and Hairy were fully apprised of the use of EITs, and generated not a peep between them. He would also be aware of the fact that the techniques inflict no physical pain – it’s psychological. Roughly 30,000 American troops have undergone the same techniques, including waterboarding, as part of a program designed to help them to resist interrogation.

    It’s just easier for moonbats to scream about “torture”. Actual thought is just too much to ask of them.

  • Polly says:

    Let’s just make this simple. When can we prosecute this dick, Cheney?

  • Ken says:

    “Let’s just make this simple. When can we prosecute this dick, Cheney?”

    Won’t happen, but you can keep dreaming about dick.

  • Jared says:

    Well all you Cheney lovers remember the old saying “Whoever smelt it dealt it?” This fits Cheney to a T. He is talking too too much. Damn he’s talked more in the last few weeks then he did in the 8 years he was V.P.! That’s how you know he’s nervous as hell about his own involvement in all the torture issues. He is trying very hard to get out first to control the message.

  • Ted says:

    >>Max said: If he knew what he was yammering about, then he’d recognize that Nancy and Hairy were fully apprised of the use of EITs, and generated not a peep between them. He would also be aware of the fact that the techniques inflict no physical pain – it’s psychological.

    These libs just hate anyone who doesn’t view things their way, so Cheney explaining what he knows and his viewpoints upsets them because it doesn’t fall in lockstep with Dear Leader.

    When you know you are in a postion that is right and eventually will once again take prominence, as Cheney knows is the case, you can just quietly go through life.

    When you are insecure and frightened, as the libs have demonstrated themselves to be, you scream and rant.

    Picture a bored cat staring at a mouse jumping up and down shaking its fist at it from a few inches away.

  • Jared says:

    Polly
    We have to root out the complicit Democrats first. That’s the only reason why there hasn’t been any real investigations or prosecutions yet. We need to see docs that prove torture did very little for us, THEN Americans might stomach prosecuting dick Cheney.

  • Pat says:

    Just for the sake of argument, lets say there actually does exist a memo touting the success(es) of the Bush/Cheney EIT torture program. What difference does that make? Have we sunk so low as a society that we’ll allow torture if it proves to “work”?

    Why stop with torture? Someone out there could make a strong argument that nuking the tribal areas of Pakistan would significantly harm, if not destroy, al Qaeda and a good percentage of the Taliban. Even Osama, in his cave, would be dead. Sure, there’ll be collateral damage…but it would work, right? It would make us and others in the region “safer”, at least from al Qaeda and the Taliban. Simpson above mentioned WW 2. Did not the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki “work” for its intended purpose? This is the same logic Dick Cheney is using isn’t it?

    Cheney started this argument over whether torture “works” or not. If Cheney is going to be in our faces now ever day of the week spouting his brand of safety, Cheney should extend his flawed logic to situations other than torture. I want to see him on national tv saying we should kill hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of civilians if that makes us “safer”.

  • Sarah says:

    Remember we were hit on their watch!! Dick Chaney always make it sound like they kept us safe all those years but they always leave out that little detail.

  • Chizuka says:

    I have a question please.

    Cheney said in the 1st video how dangerous the detainees are and that they shouldn’t come to the U.S. Here is what I don’t understand: we have dangerous, convicted criminals in prisons all over our country. People who have committed heinous crimes and been charged and tried and found guilty. No one cries about how dangerous it is to have them in our backyard prisons. Many of them are not U.S. citizens either.

    Why are these prisoners — who haven’t been charged or tried or convicted — so exceptionally dangerous?

    I don’t get it.

  • lisab says:

    “Why are these prisoners — who haven’t been charged or tried or convicted — so exceptionally dangerous?”

    if they are moved to the usa they would have to be tried, released and deported, or simply released.

    since they are combatants not criminals, many would end up being let go. since many cannot be deported because they would face death in their home country, they would have to be released in the usa.

  • Micky says:

    “Remember we were hit on their watch!! Dick Chaney always make it sound like they kept us safe all those years but they always leave out that little detail.”

    Remember, 4 1/2 years of 911 was planned on Clintons watch after numerous attacks on his watch, all of which he did nothing about.
    911 was not just a one day incident. Every day planning it was a part of the entire plan. Sept.11th 2001 was just one day out of 5 years.
    You’d think after the Cole, our embassies, and the first attack on the towers Billy boy would of done something. Instead he shrunk our military and intelligence gathering capabilities.

    Try again.
    They did as a matter of fact keep us safe “all those years” after 911

    Wait, are you saying it was the movies that coerced them into surrendering and not the sight of an incredibly superior military ?
    And you say you were there ?
    You dont give our forces too much credit, do you ?
    I wonder how many of those Iraqis had actually ever seen an American movies since it was known that before 5 or 6 years ago no Iraqi was ever allowed to own a satellite dish and most programming was state controlled. As a matter of fact I think Saddam and his buddies were the only ones in Iraq who ever got to watch American movies.
    You might want to rethink that line of crap
    🙂

  • Micky says:

    “Aside from that, even if by some bizarre stretch of the imagination it wasn’t illegal and immoral, the fact remains:

    Hmm… I often wonder were these facts come from. Or if they are in fact, facts.
    Then again, if torture didnt work, and its been proven, why has it been used in every war ever ?
    I’m sure theres a record out there somewhere of some guy at some time in history that got the crap slapped out of him and as a result gave up the goods ? Right ? Do we really have to investigate ?

  • jeff says:

    SCAT troll. Kate, I love it when you call the dingbats “scat-trolls”. Besides trolling their scat, I don’t know what a scat troll usefully does. I counted 10 of ’em doing their pop-a-mole peekups above.

    Excellent post, Ma’am. You gotta love Cheney, if for no other reason than his willingness to shoot lawyers in the face with a shotgun. I’m looking forward to his new co-produced series with Ted Nugent, where they carry the .410 pistol “The Judge” in pursuit of the wily herds of scat trolls (well, not *particularly* “wily”). Look for it on Versus network.

    p.s. I know you meant it in the verb tense of scat, but I think it’s more fun this way, because all they say is really scat, no? Look there’s one there, I got him…blam…so long scat troll.

  • Sarah said: Remember we were hit on their watch!! Dick Chaney always make it sound like they kept us safe all those years but they always leave out that little detail.

    Oh good lord – where you born in 2001? You must have been to make that kind of comment. WTC bombing, 2 American embassies in Africa, the USS Cole – all happened during Clinton’s “watch”. And what did he do in any of those attacks on American citizens?

    Nothing.

    You could even say that the disaster he caused in Somalia emboldened terrorists around the world – showed them that Americans were no longer the strong military they once were.

    It’s thanx to Bush/Cheney that perception was changed. Not one al Qaeda-sponsored attack against American interests since 2001.

    And I’m afraid that will change under Obama. He is showing these very people that, once again, Americans are more interested in holding hands and singing Kumbaya than in defending herself against any threat, anywhere. I fear that Joe Biden was right when he said Obama would be tested in the first 6 months.

  • Micky says:

    These moonbats putting down Cheney are a riot.
    Obama was 8 years old when Cheney began his political career.
    Hes probably seen and dealt with snot nosed punks like Obama a million times and could tell you in his sleep what it takes to deal with them which is why we see this self assured calm confident demeanor

  • kathy says:

    Dick Cheney is a refreshing voice of reason…and I’m glad he is out there saying what needs to be said. Did you hear his popularity is rising?

  • Rick says:

    I thought I would never be writing to one of these blogs, but find it not only hilarious but disturbing the blindness of people in the US today. I am not sure if any of the commentors ever served in the military or not but guessing from some of the comments most likely not. Come on people, surely you must know that 9/11 was not some evil plot by the Bush admistration, these terroist by their own admission were planning for years. Oh, by the way Osama’s head could have been delivered during the Clinton era, but let me think, oh yea he was to busy golfing to be bothered. Having been recalled to active duty right after 9/11 and priveledged to collect intel gave me an insight to how long we were in the cross hairs of al Quada and the Taliban. I love the fact that Former VP Chaney’s only motive for speaking out is his deep love for this country, which I question Obama’s..lest we forget that he has yet to prove his US citizenship along with his decisions (if you look closely at them you will see close simularities to socalism…read your history). Some will say, “he’s full of —-, but I encourage you to take a trip to a little villiage in Kenya and talk with Obama’s family first hand or would you rather do the typical and be a part of the problem and not the solution….Don’t hate the messenger, unless intentions such as the 9/11 operatives did!
