When it comes to living American war criminals former Vice President Richard B. Cheney has few peers and after the dying old bastard managed to somehow jump to the front of the transplant donor list and deprive a decent human being of a new heart he remains a formidable force. Being that in the doppelganger of what used to be the good old US of A -prior to having the life sucked out by vampires the likes of Cheney - the state-corporate media that has become a full blown propaganda arm of the Deep State continues to provide a forum of legitimacy to Cheney, Bush and Rummy who all belong standing in the dock at The Hague for their crimes against humanity. Cheney has once again slipped the choke chain and in the accustomed manner is going straight for the balls of anyone with a sense of moral decency.
Cheney gave the keynote speech over the weekend at the Sheldon Adelson festival of scumbuckets and brought down the house with his braying for the sacrifice of American blood and treasure to further the neocon PNAC world tour of domination. He was at his best of course when delivering the dripping, bloody red meat by the shovelful to an audience of degenerate swine, liars, chiselers, cowards, thieves, perverts and killers aka Republican party mega-donors. The Cheney stemwinder was to have been private but once again liberal magazine Mother Jones was able to successfully infiltrate the event as they did when capturing loser Mitt Romney's sneering dismissal of half of the country. According to Mother Jones in an online piece entitled "In Private Speech, Dick Cheney Talks Bombing Iran and GOP Donors Applaud" from which I excerpt (the audio is also available):
Without naming names, Cheney also slammed the less hawkish members of his own party—such as Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.)—for believing that the United States "can afford to turn its back on that part of the world," referring to the Middle East. "One of the things that concerns me first about the campaign, that I'm worried about," he said, "is what I sense to be an increasing strain of isolationism, if I can put it in those terms, in our own party. It's not taking over, by any means, but there is without question a body of thought now that's supported by many Republicans and some candidates that the United States can afford to turn its back on that part of the world." Cheney complained that "some candidates" think that the Middle East is "not our problem…Bring the boys home. There's no reason in the world for us to be involved in that part of the world." But, he remarked, "anybody who thinks back on the problems of 9/11" knows "it makes absolutely no sense at all for us to contemplate that course of action."
Cheney devoted much of his speech to defending the National Security Agency and its massive collection programs. There is the belief, he said, "that we have created in the National Security Agency this monster bureaucracy that's reading everybody's mail, listening to everybody's phone calls, infringing upon our civil liberties and civil rights. Hogwash." He claimed that there has not been a single case of NSA abusing its authority. (Cheney must have missed this and this.) And he asserted that if these programs had been in place, "it probably would've allowed us to stop 9/11." Not surprisingly, he blamed the NSA's current woes on Obama: "We don't have a president who can stand up and defend the program. Nobody believes him—for good reason. Look what he did with health care."
The Obama bashing is obligatory given the abhorrent racist nature of the GOP - they continue to pander to the dregs of society that are the neo-Confederates pried loose from the Democrats decades ago courtesy of Richard Nixon's "Southern Strategy" and as a result are on the losing end of demographics. It does not bode well for a political party that is dependent on promoting white supremacy when Caucasians will be outnumbered by those of color. Nor does it make for a prolonged relevance of that party unless they are able to rig the rules in order to utilize the Apartheid strategy. Look at a guy like Senator Rand Paul, one of the few Republicans of national prominence who is calling out the old guard for their racist bullshit - and Cheney and his ilk hate his fucking guts for it. Sheldon Adelson, the fat Hebrew toad sugar daddy of the warmongering wing of the GOP has made destroying Paul his second great cause, just after getting a hired gun elected who will do his bidding in nuking Tehran. Adelson and the neocon fifth-column that gathered in Sin City over the weekend are hellbent at taking out a Rand Paul run at the nomination with their usual extreme prejudice and aren't bashful about it either.
Richard B. Cheney has never been asked some very serious questions of which the answers to would be explanatory of the rapidly going bankrupt, fascist surveillance-warfare state that emerged from the smoking rubble of the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001. First and foremost of them being exactly where in the fuck was Dick Cheney? When he conjures up "the problems of 9/11" he omits any reference to his ongoing participation in the top secret Continuity of Government contingency plans, originally set up as a way to maintain a functional government structure in the event of a Soviet decapitation strike during the Cold War but after the fall of the Berlin Wall was still in place as a sort of parallel or shadow government. One that Mr. Cheney along with his longtime partner Donald Rumsfeld were deeply involved in. With the recent discussions of the "Deep State" in which certain elements are able to circumvent the traditional structure of electoral American government it is of the utmost importance to become familiar with Continuity of Government (COG) or as it is otherwise referred to "The Doomsday Project". The COG contingency plans were implemented while then President George W. Bush was being flown around from airbase to airbase on 9/11 - effectively keeping him out of the picture and Cheney in charge of the hen house. Given the known and equivocated desire by the neocons in one of their PNAC papers for "a new Pearl Harbor" that would provide the power structure with the consent of the public to wage war after war in the volatile Middle East and that Mr. Cheney was openly sympathetic to those views it would seem that further investigation would have been merited.
Just consider it food for thought.
