This tough man is the father of House January 6 Select Committee Vice-Chair Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY). She has been pulling out the big guns to support her rough primary campaign with their names and financially. One of them just starred in an ad for the Wyoming representative — her dad, Dick Cheney.
When Cheney was vice president, he shot a man in the face, in a quail hunting accident. But the guy apologized to Cheney. In the brief but extremely powerful ad, the former vice president to George W. Bush called Donald Trump out. He labeled him a “coward’ and a “threat to our Republic.” His daughter has been up against a Trump-crowned candidate in a race for her seat. And Liz Cheney has been fighting hard.
Dick Cheney is a genuine Republican, but nearly all of the sitting GOP legislators have turned into Trump Republicans. Or they fear Donald Trump so much, they might as well be his Republicans. The new ad came out Thursday to have the most effect on her upcoming primary on August 16.
Dick Cheney starred for one minute in his daughter’s ad, entitled He Knows It. The former VP spoke directly into the camera:
‘In our nation’s 246 year history, there has never been an individual who is a greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump. He tried to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters had rejected him. He Knows It.’
Then, Cheney explained to Trump what “a real man” was:
‘He is a coward. A real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters. He lost his election and he lost big. I know it, he knows it and deep down I think most Republicans know it.’
The former vice president has always been a no-nonsense man with an equally tough wife. His daughter actually voted more frequently with Trump than most of her coworkers. And she is war hawk. But her cause and that of America’s has always been greater than policies, laws, or parties. She has help lead us in our very fight for a free country. Their daughter will be written into history as a true hero.
She knew that by joining the January 6 Committee, she might have to forfeit her seat in order to save America’s democracy. The nation came within feet and seconds on January 6, 2021 of Trump overthrowing our democracy. That would have included the mob murdering the Democratic leaders and his own VP Mike Pence. And led immediately to a Trump dictator.
The House GOP leadership kicked Liz Cheney out of her leadership position after she became the January 6 Committee vice-chair. Of course, her dad and mother were “proud” of this “fearless woman” their daughter grew into and with good reason. This was about “honoring her oath to the Constitution.” As Dick Cheney said:
‘There is nothing more important she will ever do than lead the effort to make sure Donald Trump is never again near the Oval Office again. And she will succeed. I am Dick Cheney. I proudly voted for my daughter. I hope you will too.’
Trump put her on his enemy’s list after she voted to impeach him over the January 6 attempted coup. Okay, but the former President Bush comes to her fundraisers.

Her supporters include such well-known names as actor Kevin Costner. He was wearing an “I’m for Liz Cheney” shirt in a photo for her. Wyoming Republican Senator Alan Simpson (R) also supports her. He appeared in an ad for her at the beginning of the summer.
Before the televised January 6 Select Committee hearings that were as jarring as they were powerful, The Casper St-Tribune came out with a poll. It indicated that Cheney was a full 20 percent behind her opponent, 30 percent to 52 percent.
