GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney is not someone you want to get into a fight with if you aren’t armed sufficiently with intelligence and fact-based arguments. Recently, a Twitter feud has exploded between Cheney and anti-Semite Ilhan Omar. It was reignited this last week when Omar accused Cheney, without evidence, of lying and slandered her family as well. Cheney torched her.
“Liz Cheney is accusing a committee investigating Russian election interference of… helping Vladimir Putin,” Omar tweeted. “This is an impressive lie even for the Cheney family.” On the contrary, that was the blunt truth which those such as Omar on the left just can’t tolerate. They have always been allies of the communists and have cuddled with Putin repeatedly. Cheney is just voicing what no one else has the courage to say here.
Omar got her feathers ruffled over Cheney’s assertion that Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee were undermining American democracy and thereby helping Russian President Vladimir Putin. Again, that’s the harsh truth of the matter. The decision by the Judiciary Committee to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress triggered Cheney’s remarks and I don’t blame her in the least.
“If you look at what we know and what we know from the Mueller report and other places, it’s absolutely clear the Russians have attempted. A number of them were indicted for attempting to influence, to undermine our democratic processes,” Cheney said during a press conference on Wednesday. “The Democrats on the Judiciary Committee are doing exactly what Vladimir Putin would do if he could.” I love that response. Just wow… the truth is so refreshing.
🤦🏽♀️ Liz Cheney is accusing a committee investigating Russian election interference of…helping Vladimir Putin.
This is an impressive lie even for the Cheney family. https://t.co/c9yekH6x5o

Cheney did not back down in the least and let Omar have it with both barrels: “No surprise [Omar], an anti-Semitic Socialist who slanders US troops and carries water for Hamas and Maduro, doesn’t recognize the truth when she hears it,” Cheney tweeted. It’s about time someone said it… I really love Liz Cheney.
From The Daily Caller:
“Omar, and fellow Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan became America’s first Muslim congresswomen when sworn into office in January. Their time in office has been embroiled in allegations of anti-Semitism and anti-American sentiments, and has faced massive backlash from both sides of the aisle.
“After the armed conflict tore through Venezuelan capital of Caracas in early May, Omar claimed American policies were the catalyst for the ‘devastation’ rather than blaming socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro.
“She also sided with Hamas after the Palestinian terror organization launched nearly 600 rockets into Israel from across the Gaza border in a 24 hours period earlier in May. Hamas claimed responsibility for multiple Israeli deaths.

“Omar has defended her own anti-Israeli statements, such as ones invoking Allah to expose Israel’s “evil doings” as well as promoting age-old anti-Semitic canards such as that Jews’ support of Israel is paid for and that they have a dual loyalty to the U.S. and Israel.
“The freshman congresswoman fundraised with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a notable pro-Palestinian organization with ties to Islamic terror groups. The U.S. Department of Justice listed CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in funding millions of dollars to Hamas. Additionally, the United Arab Emirates named CAIR a terrorist organization along with al-Qaeda and the Islamic State in 2014.
“While speaking to CAIR, Omar described the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks as merely an event where “some people did something.” Cheney called Omar’s description of the attacks that left nearly 3,000 Americans dead “nauseating.” (RELATED: Liz Cheney: Democrats Need To Decide If They Will Be The Party Of JFK Or AOC)
“It was a horrific terrorist attack at the hands of radical Islamic terrorists and Ilhan Omar can try to re-write history, can try to call it something else, but when she does that, she’s showing that she has absolutely no understanding and no recognition of the threats that we face,” Cheney responded at the time.”
How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends?
The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.

This certainly isn’t the first time or the last that Omar has lied. Omar had tweeted, prior to joining Congress, that the American troops involved in the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu had killed “thousands” of Somalis. U.S. veterans of the battle blasted Omar for misrepresenting their service.
It all started this past week when Omar commented on the “protesters” in Gaza. Omar tweeted falsely, “How many more protesters must be shot” before the violence and “occupation” ends. Cheney responded with her own apropos question: “Real question is how many times will @IlhanMN rush to the defense of terrorists?” Just wow.
1. Hamas controls Gaza.
2. Hamas is firing rockets at civilians in Israel. 3. @IlhanMN is defending Hamas. Real question is how many times will @IlhanMN rush to the defense of terrorists? https://t.co/mrKQBz1TDa

It appears Liz Cheney is not messing around. She takes after her father and I revel in it. Omar should not poke this honey badger – she should quit while she’s behind and crawl off to lick her wounds. But she doesn’t have sense enough to do that and Cheney will eviscerate her. It will be glorious to watch.
