LIZ CHENEY. Take a good look...this is the face of GOP elitism!
TheTownCrier has been on a long break, enjoying the pleasures and duties of life. But something has to be said as I watch my fellow 'conservatives' get all twitterpatted over the latest, great GOP hope...well, keep hoping, my friends!
You are doing it again!!! Searching desperately for someone to save the Republican party and all of us from Socialist Hell, and grasping at NON conservative straws! Remember Marco Rubio and all that vetting that NONE of you bothered to do before you promoted him as the face of AMNESTY????
HOW soon you forget! Or did you just ignore all the facts in the first place? Either way...STOP it or you give us another candidate out of the Kennedy wing of the Republican party. NO MORE BUSHES, NO MORE CHENEYS,!!
They were the SAME administration! Birds of a feather, and all that!
WAKE UP! They are not conservatives!
Headline: In Wyoming, a Cheney Run Worries G.O.P.
Here is a sample of some of the comments from the blind faithful!
"Liz Cheney - daughter of Dick - taking on the GOPelite"
"I for one will do anything that will bring Liz Cheney to power!!!"
"Liz takes on Obummer by speaking the truth and calling a radical a radical and the GOP(elite) is scared to death of her .... why the GOP(e) has lost my support & that of many other conservatives tired of holding their noses to vote "the lesser of two evils". This won't work with me any more."
WHAT the HELL country have you so called 'conservatives' been living in for the last 3 decades??? WAKE UP! Do you LIKE being a part of the STUPID party?
The real irony here, is the folks making these undeserving comments HATE this amnesty push! Yet, they'll adore some hack to prominence who supports amnesty and worse!
The men in Liz's life.........
Liz is Dick Cheney's daughter...THAT alone should make you run the other way! What good did he EVER do the republican party or this country for that matter?
Her father and mother and her lesbian sister Mary all hold liberal social views that should worry you social conservatives. Mary once said, 'I think you'd be hard-pressed to find any daylight at all between Liz's and my father's views."
Cesar Conda, of current Amnesty fame, was Dick Cheney's domestic policy advisor.
GEORGE W. BUSH
Liz was appointed by Pres. G.W. Bush in 2002 to the position of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs for 2 years then took a break to help with the re-election of her dad.
In 2005, she returned to the US State Department and was appointed the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State For Near Eastern Affairs and Coordinator for Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiatives. In this position, Cheney supported and coordinated U.S. multilateral efforts to promote and support democracy, expanded education and economic opportunities in the Middle East and Northern Africa. Cheney oversaw the launch of two semi-independent foundations for those areas, the Fund of the Future (worth $100 million), to provide capital for small businesses and the Foundation of the Future (worth $55 million), to promote freedom of the press and democracy. In that capacity, Cheney endorsed a draft of a new Iraqi constitution.
The lady flat knows how to spend our money in places that hate us and I recall that many of us were unhappy with parts of that Iraqi constitution which instituted Islam as a state religion and called universal health care a 'right' among other questionable 'rules' and 'rights' .
Liz held an important 2nd position at State Dept. She is typical of the people retired Rep. Duncan Hunter called "Knuckleheads at the department of State" during the time she served. This is also the same time when Bush's State Dept. allowed 'refugees' like the tens of thousands of Somali's and others generously brought to our country, who now cause so many problems.
One has only to remember the recent history of those lovely Chechan Boston bombing brother refugees, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to know how many bad apples the State Department ushered in while Liz Cheney was close to the helm.
Cheney signed on in June 2007 to serve as one of three national co-chairs for Fred Thompson's 2008 presidential campaign. Another co-chair was Spencer Abraham, who once hired Cesar Conda as his chief of staff as he now holds the same position for Marco Rubio. After Thompson dropped out of the race, Cheney announced that she would work for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, serving as a senior foreign policy advisor. Cesar Conda also worked as an advisor for Romney in his last run and was a mentor to Paul Ryan.
That is Mrs. Philip Perry. Liz Cheney is the mother of his five children, who had been accused of corruption and cronyism and said a few years ago, "The term 'revolving door' implies people going in and out of government in order to obtain monetary gain. The reason people go into government is to serve their country. It's not appropriate to describe that as a 'revolving door.'"
Phil Perry is the poster boy for K street/whitehouse cronyism and revolvingdoorism!
In 2007, TheTownCrier wrote several articles detailing some of the questionable 'work' Perry headed at the Justice Dept. One is titled, "Exposing the Dept. of Job Security (who is Philip Perry?)".
In his position as the General Counsel for the DHS, appointed by his friend Michael Chertoff, Perry supervised over 1,500 lawyers, and advised Secretary Chertoff, who had been a close associate at their lobbying/lawyer firm and the White House on the Department's legal and policy issues. Issues of influence for Perry included, but were not limited to, "the transit of people and cargo, comprehensive immigration reform, and critical infrastructure such as chemical plants."
BUSH/McCain/Kennedy COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM! AMNESTY! HELLO!
'Transit of people and cargo'....NO ONE in the Bush DOJ EVER did anything to enforce those laws!
"Perry’s questionable behavior extends far beyond nepotism and delaying investigations. He’s also a pro at jumping back and forth between government and the private sector, doing what he can to benefit industry along the way. After Bush became president, Perry moved from being a junior partner at the DC law firm Latham & Watkins to holding the position of Associate-Attorney General for the Department of Justice. He then moved to the Office of Management and Budget as General Counsel, where he had a hand in drafting plans for DHS. In 2003, he returned to Latham & Watkins as a member of their Homeland Security practice group and lobbied on behalf of Lockheed Martin and other companies."
One article on Mr. Perry you should read is, 'Dick Cheney’s Dangerous Son-in-Law, Philip Perry and the politics of chemical security' by Art Levine.
It details nefarious dealings when Perry was general counsel of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), another powerful Bush/Cheney appointment.
The point here is that the OMB is supposed to be impartial, a 'guide' to the administration, not to make policy decisions at the VP's behest! When you're running an administration that isn't corrupt you don't appoint a relative as a watchdog! HELLO!
[snip](A colleague, Michael Chertoff, would later head the Department of Homeland Security.) In 2000, when Cheney became George W. Bush’s running mate, Perry found himself in the inner circle of advisers surrounding his father-in-law. Friends describe him as intellectually brilliant and extremely discreet. Fittingly, in the vice president’s debate-prep sessions, Perry played the role of moderator. The Republican political consultant Mary Matalin, who worked with him in the mock debates, described Perry to Legal Times as “very, very, very strategic.”
When the election of 2000 was resolved, Perry took on the title of “policy coordinator” for the Bush-Cheney presidential transition. By early 2001, he had been appointed as the acting associate attorney general at the Department of Justice, the department’s third-ranking official. It was a dramatic promotion.
While Perry mostly stayed out of the news, the summer brought some unwelcome attention. The Department of Justice, it was reported, would stop pursuing a breakup of Microsoft. Since Perry oversaw the antitrust division, and Cheney had previously met with Microsoft’s CEO, some critics smelled a fix.[snip]
In January 2007, during the uproar over the imprisonment of Ramos and Compean, two border agents and the false statements made by the Justice Dept., Perry announced his intention to step down as general counsel of the Department of Homeland Security and was rumored to be returning to Latham & Watkins. Elizabeth Cheney, Perry’s wife, had given birth to the couple’s fifth child in July 2006.
We will likely never know how deeply Perry was buried in the pathetic prosecution and imprisonment of these two border agents for doing their jobs. We do know of other problems he handled for DHS that point directly to him.
Pro Amnesty, anti enforcement open border HACK. Pal of all things Grover Norquist.
The guy who pulls Marco Rubio's strings. Mentor to Paul Ryan. Advisor to Mitt Romney. Domestic policy advisor to Dick Cheney. FRIEND of Liz.
Florida Elections: The Crist to Rubio Switch (A former Dick Cheney assistant changes his mind) National Review ^ | 02/09/2010 | by Cesar Conda
[snip] Charlie Crist, if elected, would make a fine U.S. senator, and would probably be a reliable Republican vote on most issues. But I think Marco Rubio is more likely to be a leader when it comes to putting foward innovative conservative policy reforms and alternatives to America's problems.
I've rounded up a group of friends, including Rep. Paul Ryan, Mary Matalin, Liz Cheney, ..... among others, to host an evening reception in my offices (901 7th Street, N.W., Washington) for Rubio after his speech before CPAC on Thursday, February 18. I'd invite all Corner readers to come over to meet Marco, who I believe will be Florida's next U.S. Senator.
— Cesar Conda was assistant for domestic policy to Vice President Dick Cheney and senior economic policy adviser to the 2008 Mitt Romney for President Campaign.
QUESTION: How does a player like Conda get to be a lowly state rep's chief of staff...WHO hired WHO????
According to an article today, " Since leaving public office, Liz co-founded a non-profit called Keep America Safe which advocates for Republican ideals. She currently serves as the chairwoman of the conservative group."
Interestingly, we're unable to access their website, keepamericasafe.com and others just won't load. She and Wm. Kristol...you know that great 'conservative' Icon (yeah, I'm a comedian) are joined in that endeavor, whatever it stands for.
This may explain it, "As of the early 2013, KAS appeared to be largely inactive. Although its website provided links to outside news sources covering current events, materials on the group’s resource pages—such as links to materials by neoconservative writers like Elliott Abramsand reports from the Center for Security Policy—all dated back several years. The group reported just over $200,000 in contributions in 2011, compared to over $535,000 in 2010"
Somewhere, sometime, Liz may have said she is not for 'amnesty'....so did Bush, Conda and Rubio & Ryan! Actually, she's avoiding the subject and there just isn't anything to quote her on. But you can know someone by the company they keep, and Liz is hanging out with ALL the wrong men.
It will be interesting to find out the powers that be behind a Liz campaign for office when there is a conservative GOP Senator already in place...Enzi....who isn't an amnesty freak......this all has the smell of a Grover Norquist operation.
Some really interesting comments at the link above....Wyoming citizens aren't impressed with Liz the carpetbagger!
MARK LEVIN!! SHAME ON YOU. Yesterday you endorsed Liz Cheney. You've been on a rampage for a week about the elitist ROTTEN insider GOP and ya endorse this woman withouth bothering to vet her. SHE is another Marco Rubio! Yeah, I know, you think me and others are NOBODY bloggers...well, I've known you for 14 years and I haven't been wrong yet! WAKE THE HELL UP before you push another traitor on us! YOU are better than that!
UPDATE #2: TOLD YOU SO! Norquist and his pal Cesar Conda are behind trying to oust Enzi and smear Rand Paul for supporting him!
[snip]Paul’s campaign was half-unsurprised, half-amused. They’d seen this coming a week before, when former Cheney policy adviser Cesar Conda emailed some fellow neoconservatives and asked them to “help us get the word out about Rand Paul’s troubling and dangerous views on foreign policy.”* Fun on its own, but by weighing in personally, Cheney had confirmed a white-knuckle panic among their least favorite Republicans..... Conda, who tried to organize that late anti-Paul surge in 2010, is now chief of staff to Sen. Marco Rubio. (He chose not to comment for this story.)"
PSST!!!! Philip Perry...husband of Liz and father of her 5 babies......#1 LAWYER for MONSANTO/Roundup/gmo everything...Perry is the guy they send to court to devour small farmers and YOU!
NOW, who do you think owns Liz Cheney? Hmm???
WHAT have we here.....aw...just one of Obama/Rubio's 'dreamers' who DESERVE citizenship!

Illegal Alien Pleads Guilty to Gang Rape in Michigan
On Monday, Felipe Lopez-Velasquez, 17, pleaded guilty to first-degree sexual conduct and robbery in a Kent County courtroom for a gang rape which occurred on September 10.
Lopez-Velasquez, along with an accomplice repeatedly raped a 21-year-old Grand Valley University student at a Grand Rapids bus stop.
The pair grabbed the victim as she was exiting a bus in a Southside neighborhood.
“ In a sworn affidavit, a Grand Rapids detective said that a composite sketch led to tips that identified Lopez-Velasquez. The detective said that the 21-year-old victim and a witness picked Lopez-Velasquez out of a police lineup.
A prosecutor recommended that a judge sentence Felipe Lopez-Velasquez, who was 16 at the time of the incident, to six years and nine months to 11 years and three months in prison at the minimum. He was charged as an adult.
Lopez-Velasquez is scheduled to be sentenced on August 15.

White House's Fast And Furious Claims Another Victim
Investor's Business Daily | July 8, 2013 | IBD EDITORIALS
Scandal: The administration's gun-running fiasco claims the life of a Mexican police chief, revealing that the weapons have made it into the hands of drug cartels deep inside Mexico.
It's been lost in the litany of Obama scandals, but Fast and Furious, like Benghazi, is one that has produced a body count, in this case one that's still rising as the White House and Department of Justice continue to restrict and hinder access to related documents. Attorney General Eric Holder remains in contempt of Congress for his role in the ongoing cover-up.
President Obama's contempt for the rule of law hit a new low when, on the eve of a vote to hold the AG in contempt of Congress, he granted Holder's 11th-hour request to hide sought-after documents on Operation Fast and Furious under the cover of executive privilege.
One internal document obtained by the Los Angeles Times shows how deadly Fast and Furious was and continues to be with the death Luis Lucio Rosales Astorga, police chief in the city of Hostotipaquillo. He was shot to death Jan. 29 when gunmen intercepted his patrol car and opened fire. A bodyguard was also killed.
A semi-automatic WASR rifle, the firearm that killed the chief, was traced back to the Lone Wolf Trading Company, a gun store in Glendale, Ariz. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) allowed illegal purchasers to buy the firearms at the Lone Wolf store in the Phoenix suburb and other gun shops in the Southwest.
.....and the beat goes on.....
