U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney appeared on Fox and Friends Wednesday morning to talk the Democratic National Convention, hours after she won the Wyoming primary election.

Cheney hasn’t been shy about her voicing her opinion about the Democratic presidential and vice-presidential candidates, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, respectively. Last week, she tweeted that Harris was a “radical liberal” who wanted to raise taxes and take away guns.

On the Wednesday morning appearance, Cheney said that if Biden and other Democrats won the general election in November, the country wouldn’t see an economic recovery.

“The economic policies that we have seen from President [Donald] Trump and from the Republicans in the House and the Senate over the course of last three-and-a-half years, the cuts in regulation, the cuts in taxes, those are the kinds of things that we have to see to bring the economy back again, to get people back to work,” she said.

“Socialism, which is the promise of Bernie Sanders and A[lexandria] O[casio] C[ortez], they have a chokehold on the Democratic platform, on Joe Biden’s policies going forward. They are the ones that will be setting the policy into the future. That would be an absolute devastation for this country.”

She added that Sanders, Ocasio Cortez and Biden were advocating for socialism while destroying the nation.

Cheney praised Trump’s work on illegal immigration during her Fox appearance, saying his border wall was important because Democrats wanted to use taxpayer funds to give free health care to illegal immigrants.

She also touched on former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s appearance at the DNC, criticizing his work on the Iran nuclear deal framework in 2015.

The representative ended her appearance with a critique of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party, saying Pelosi “failed to lead.”

“[Republicans] feel really good about our chances to take a message to the American people that we are the party that is going to bring back economic recovery, that’s going to bring back national security, defeat this virus, and get the economy going again,” she said.

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney didn’t mince words this week after Joe Biden announced that U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris would be his vice presidential pick.

“Kamala Harris is a radical liberal who would raise taxes, take away guns & health insurance, and explode the size and power of the federal government,” Cheney wrote on Twitter. “She wants to recreate America in the image of what’s happening on the streets of Portland & Seattle. We won’t give her the chance.”

Cheney followed up that tweet with a retweet of a Fox News report, adding more comments about Harris. She said the California senator had a more liberal voting record than U.S. Sens. Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

The representative repeated her assertions that Harris wants to raise taxes, ban gun sales and eliminate private health insurance. She added Harris also wants to use taxpayer money for abortions and illegal immigrant health care.

“Would be devastating for America,” she wrote.

Cheney also retweeted a post about Harris by GOP national spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington, which featured similar claims. It also included comments about Harris wanting to have a “conversation” about lowering the voting age from 18 and letting terrorists vote from prison.

Liz Cheney: U.S. Won’t Tolerate Targeting Of Forces

The United States will not tolerate the targeting of its forces by any foreign power, U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney said Tuesday.

Cheney, speaking during a press briefing in Washington, D.C., said any foreign power planning harm to American forces should be ready for significant consequences.

“I want to be absolutely clear, America’s adversaries should know, they should have no doubt that any targeting of U.S. forces by Russians, by anyone else will face a very swift and deadly response,” she said.

Cheney’s comments followed a White House briefing on reports that Russia was offering bounties to members of the Taliban who killed American soldiers in Afghanistan.

After the briefing, Cheney, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, issued a joint statement with U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, saying they were concerned about Russian activities in Afghanistan.

“It has been clear for some time that Russia does not wish us well in Afghanistan,” the statement said. “We believe it is important to vigorously pursue any information related to Russia or any other country targeting our forces. Congress has no more important obligation than providing for the security of our nation and ensuring our forces have the resources they need.”

During the press briefing, Cheney declined to discuss the specifics of what was discussed in the White House briefing.

However, she said that any force targeting U.S. forces should not underestimate the level of response.

“America’s adversaries should never question the will of the United States government or of the American people to defend our interests, to protect the security of our nation, to protect our forces and to respond when attacked or threatened,” she said.

Cheney: China Intentionally Let Virus Spread to U.S. and the World

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney today said the Chinese government purposely let the coronavirus spread to the United States and the rest of the world.

Cheney, appearing on FOX & Friends Tuesday morning, said when China saw the spread of the virus in its own country, the government restricted domestic travel but let international travel continue.

“When they understood the economic devastation was going to be huge, I think they believed they would rather have that spread around the globe rather than it simply be something they suffered from,” she said.

For that, Cheney said the country must be held accountable.

“Clearly they cannot continue to be a member of the civilized community of nations because of what they’ve done and because of the lies,” she said.

Moving forward, Cheney said the U.S. must act to move supply chains away from China and restrict the country’s participation in certain affairs

“We have to take steps to ensure that they do not have the seat at the table that they have had in the past,” she said.

“We have to make sure we are defending ourselves and that the U.S. leads the free world. The world has to live by rules set by countries that believe in freedom and not set by the Communist Chinese party,” Cheney said.

Liz Cheney Donates to Primary Opponent of “Most Hated Man in Congress”

Count another Member of Congress firmly against Republican Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky.

This member is close to home — Wyoming’s sole representative in the House of Representatives, Liz Cheney.

Bloomberg News on Thursday reported that Cheney’s political action committee — Cowboy PAC — donated $2,500 to the primary opponent of Rep. Massie just four days after he forced the House to return to DC to vote in person on the $2 trillion economic stimulus package.

In demanding the members vote in-person, Massie accomplished something very rare in Washington, DC: bi-partisanship.  Everyone hated him. Both sides of the aisle.

President Trump called him a “third-rate grandstander” and expressed the hope that he would not only lose his congressional seat but be kicked out of the Republican Party.

In retweeting Trump, Former Secretary of State John Kerry said Massie was something that he and Trump could finally agree on.

“Breaking News: Congressman Massie has tested positive for being an asshole. He must be quarantined to prevent the spread of his massive stupidity,” Kerry said.

As for Cheney, her office didn’t offer much when asked about the $2,500 donation. Perhaps the donation said it all.

“She agrees with President Trump on this,” a spokesperson said.
