Dick Cheney Says to CNN’s Barbara Starr: Trump Took Us To Point Where We “Don’t Need You Guys Anymore”
WILL TRUMP MAKE THE MSM IRRELEVANT OR HAVE THEY ALREADY DONE THAT TO THEMSELVES?
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.”
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.

Sen. Marco Rubio Rips Barack Obama Statement on Fidel Castro Death … Absolutely “Pathetic” (Update: Kaepernick Booed in Miami on Sunday)
BARACK OBAMA’S PATHETIC STATEMENT REGARDING THE DEATH OF FIDEL CASTRO …
It would appear that Barack Obama never met a socialist he didn’t like. Obama commented on the death of Fidel Castro over the weekend and it was “pathetically” eye-opening. Not one mention of the tyranny and oppression that Castro and his regime inflicted on the good citizens of Cuba. Sen. Marco Rubio (FL-R) ripped Obama for his “pathetic” comments. Of course Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT-S) had no problem with the praise of the ruthless dictator. What else would you expect from a socialist.
“We know that this moment fills Cubans — in Cuba and in the United States — with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation,” Obama said in a statement. “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.”
Miami Dolphins fans mercilessly booed San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick Sunday afternoon in Miami.
Kaepernick has been in the news recently after a tense exchange over the merits of recently deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro with a local Florida reporter. Miami, which has a large Cuban population, didn’t let Kaepernick forget about it.
GOOD RIDDANCE …
Cuban dictator Fidel Castro has finally died at the age of 90. The hero to the Left and socialists has passed. Cubans in Miami rejoiced upon hearing of the news of the socialist dictators death and danced in the streets. This is more a symbolic death for the people who have fled Cuba as Fidel Castro stepped down some 10+ years ago. Cuba is still run by a dictator, maybe some day a U.S. President will make a real deal with Cuba that is good for the U.S. and Cuban people. Make no mistake about it, this man mercilessly killed and jailed his political enemies.
On a personal note, having known so many Cuban-Americans who’s parents had fled Castro’s tyranny and some who while trying to have their families escapade where captured and imprisoned, I can only imagine the feelings they are experiencing what they are going through.
CUBAN icon Fidel Castro died peacefully in bed aged 90 yesterday — after surviving 638 assassination bids.
The cigar-smoking revolutionary, who pushed the world to the edge of nuclear war, was damned and feted across the globe.
His enemies were last night toasting the death of a blood-soaked tyrant guilty of murdering hundreds of political opponents and oppressing his impoverished people.
Sen. Marco Rubio (FL-R) discusses the death of Fidel Castro
Castro was born on August 13, 1926, in Cuba. A lifelong Marxist, he trained as a lawyer but was jailed after attacking a barracks with brother Raul and fled to Mexico on release.
He returned alongside legendary guerilla leader Che Guevara and a rebel army to seize power in 1959. He was Prime Minister until 1976, when he became President.
He immediately ordered the executions of 582 opponents, shut independent media and herded gay people into “re-education” camps. Later, HIV-positive citizens were quarantined.
In 1962, he invited Russian nuclear missiles to be based on Cuba, just 90 miles from the hated US.
