Dick Cheney Says to CNN’s Barbara Starr: Trump Took Us To Point Where We “Don’t Need You Guys Anymore”


Over the weekend, former Vice President Dick Cheney and Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta discussed the new era of foreign policy under President-elect Donald Trump with CNN’s Barbara Starr at the Reagan Library. The media seems to be worried about Donald Trump’s tweets. That is when Cheney provided the following comment as to why maybe the MSM is in such a huff over Trump’s tweets, do they feel that they will be made irrelevant and not needed anymore? Funny line. I bet the media never thought they would miss Dick Cheney.

Honestly, since it is pretty much obvious, especially after the last election cycle that journalism is dead, maybe it is the media that made their own-self irrelevant.

“I think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn’t have to rely upon, uh, rely upon — this is the modern era, modern technology. He’s at the point where we don’t need you guys anymore.”

RCP Transcript:

FMR. VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY: One of the most important things [President-elect Trump] can do is exactly the opposite of what his predecessor did. With respect to Iran and nuclear weapons, and don’t make the mistakes that the situation he is inheriting from the Obama administration represented. With respect to our status in the world, the capabilities of our forces, the belief on the part of I believe many of our friends and allies that they can no longer trust the United States or count on our guarantees. I think we need to do major progress and reverse the Obama policies and not that’s not a place for President Trump to start.

BARBARA STARR, CNN: But Secretary Cheney, Mr. Vice President, you are someone who has a long history of being very precise in your words, in your thinking and your analysis. I’m not aware of anytime you ever said anything very casually. [Laughter]

CHENEY: Oh, now, Barbara.

STARR: At least that I can’t recall. I heard that Air Force general that you fired. Um, that’s another story we’ll get to later.

So, c’mon, let’s hear it. What are you — what is your, you know, you hear this casual language. And when I say that don’t go out tweeting that I am anti-this or anti-that. The language of tweets is not necessarily as nuanced and contextual as U.S. foreign policy is. I think that is something that we can all agree on. So when you see this, seriously, what concerns does it cause you? If you were sitting with him and could give him some advice about all of this — about language, about meaning of words — what would you say? What would your advice be?

CHENEY: Well, I, first of all, am not sitting with him.

STARR: Would you if asked?

CHENEY: Would if I asked?

STARR: Would you?

CHENEY: Certainly, if the President of the United States asks for advice. I would have been happy to advise Barack Obama but he never asked me. [Laughter]

STARR: So, again, language and words. [Laughter]

STARR: You see, the man never says anything casual.

CHENEY: I think he needs to be careful but he’ll learn as he goes along. I think he is putting some brains and good people with him. I am a big fan of Mike Pence. I know Mike well from his 12 years in the House and I think he’s a great choice as Vice President. He’s going to play a major role. I think Mr. Trump is taking very, very seriously the job that he has gotten now. Staffing up the administration.

I think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn’t have to rely upon, uh, rely upon — this is the modern era, modern technology. He’s at the point where we don’t need you guys anymore.

Missing – Drake Kramer

Search and rescue teams have been searching 285 square miles of the Grand Canyon for the last week, combing the area for a 21-year-old geology student who went missing there after sending a puzzling text message to his worried parents.

Drake Kramer of San Antonio, Texas was last spotted at the south rim of the Grand Canyon on Saturday, January 31.

He checked out of the Bright Angel Lodge the next morning and hasn’t been seen by friends or family since.

His parents Robin and Brenda Kramer reported him missing on Monday, when they learned of the trip and received a text message from their son in which he said he ‘needed to be with Mother Earth’.

UPDATE I: Search area expands for missing San Antonio man at Grand Canyon National Park.

The search for a missing San Antonio man at the Grand Canyon has expanded, The National Park Service announced.

The search area was expanded east from the South Rim developed area along Highway 64 towards Grandview. Rescue teams, with the help of helicopters, have not located 21-year-old Drake Kramer since he was reported missing by his family on Monday.

UPDATE II: A cryptic text message prompted the parents of a missing 21-year-old Texas man to contact authorities.

 A cryptic text message prompted the parents of a missing 21-year-old Texas man to contact authorities, after learning he embarked on what they believe to be a solo trip to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.

“He indicated that he needed to be with Mother Earth,” said Robin Kramer, the father of 21-year-old Drake Kramer.

The text message was sent Monday morning, the last time Robin and his wife Brenda heard from Drake. They were unaware of their son’s travel plans and the last time they saw him was Thursday, Jan. 29 in San Antonio.

UPDATE III: Hiker Missing in Grand Canyon Told Dad He ‘Needed to Be Back With Mother Earth.

His father, Robbin Kramer, said his son told him Monday that “he was at the Grand Canyon and he needed to be back with Mother Earth and set his soul free. At that point we really started getting worried and started calling and trying to get people to look for him.”

The family reported Drake Kramer missing on Monday, and search efforts and a missing person investigation are now under way.
