September 28, 2021, (LifeSiteNews) — Rep. Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, indicated in a television interview that she has rethought her conservative stances and now supports both same-sex “marriage” and transgenderism. She seemed to even refer to a gender-confused man as “she.”

The Wyoming Republican was challenged on 60 Minutes by Lesley Stahl, who said, “Your sister is gay, she’s married, she has children, and in 2013 you came out against same-sex marriage while your father went the other way, and it was looked upon as courageous when he did that. How do you defend what you did?”

“I was wrong. I was wrong,” replied Cheney. “I love my sister very much. I love her family very much. And I was wrong. It’s a very personal issue, and very personal for my family.”

Cheney repeated her mantra, “I was wrong,” three times.

“I believe that my Dad was right,” she added.

Former VP Dick Cheney championed same-sex ‘marriage’ before Obama, Biden

Liz Cheney’s dad, Dick Cheney, has long betrayed Christian/conservative values, working in the years leading up to the U.S. Supreme Court’s tragic Obergefell decision — which instituted same-sex “marriage” across the country — to convince Republican state legislators to vote with Democrats to institute same-sex “marriage” in their states.

In June 2009 at a National Press Club gathering, Dick Cheney said, “I think people ought to be free to enter into any kind of union they wish. Any kind of arrangement they wish.”

Cheney then qualified his position by saying that the federal government had no role in imposing same-sex “marriage” and that it was an issue that should be decided by the states.

While impossible to quantify, Dick Cheney’s support went a long way to rolling out the red carpet for the institution of the impossible notion of same-sex “marriage.” His championing of same-sex marriage predated both Barack Obama’s and Joe Biden’s by about a dozen years.

I was David battling the Cheney Goliath’ 

In early 2012, as a newly chaste, former “gay” man, I spent a few days in Annapolis meeting with as many of my home-state legislators as I could, hoping to bolster their resolve to oppose a pending same-sex marriage bill. It was then that I realized I was David battling the Cheney Goliath.

With the Maryland House vote looming, I stood outside a GOP legislator’s door — stunned — after word got to me that Dick Cheney was calling wobbly Republican delegates, seeking their support for the measure. It was a supremely demoralizing moment, but that’s what it was meant to be for those battling to maintain the immutable definition of marriage.

A couple days later, the bill passed by a thin margin with the help of two Republican votes, thanks to the former Republican vice president’s intervention.

PETITION UPDATE (9/27/21)

United has agreed to put off its threatened COVID vaccine mandate for another 2 weeks, as proceedings came to a screeching halt in federal court last Friday.

Mark Paoletta, a partner at Schaerr Jaffe representing the plaintiffs, was quoted by Breitbart as saying:

"Now everyone can follow the court’s decision to take the time and care needed to carefully consider the legitimate claims our clients have as we seek a solution that allows United to take necessary steps to combat COVID-19 while respecting the civil rights of valuable employees who have sincere religious objections or medical conditions that make them unable to take the vaccine."

While this appears to be a lessening of tensions and possibly a step in the right direction, we must wait till the case resumes on October 15 to see if United will scrap their draconian mandate.

In the meantime, we must continue to apply pressure on United.

So, please continue to SIGN and SHARE this pledge to boycott the airline giant for threatening to impose harsh measures - including forced unpaid leave - in order to coerce employees with religious or medical objections to the vaccine to take the jab.

Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE!

____________________________________________________________

United Airlines is accused of not respecting the religious and medical COVID vaccine exemptions which the company offered to employees who cannot, in good conscience or health, take the vaccine.

2,000 employees of the industry giant are represented in two court cases which have been initiated to stop United from laying-off or indefinitely furloughing workers who have sought COVID vaccine exemptions.

Please SIGN this BOYCOTT of United and send the airline a stong message that you will not support the implementation of these draconian measures.

Many United Airlines employees have sincerely held religious objections to taking the COVID vaccines, while other employees have been told by their doctors not to take the vaccine due to health concerns.

The religious and medical rights of these employees must be respected, and, will hopefully be vindicated by the courts.

But, airlines are for-profit businesses, and apart from the legal incentives, there must also be financial incentives for them to respect their employees' religious and medical rights, and, indeed, the same rights of all Americans.

And, that's why we are calling for a boycott.

The CEO of United Airlines, Scott Kirby, and HR Manager, Kate Gebo, need to understand that the American public will not support businesses who force their employees or customers to violate their religious beliefs or their doctors' recommendations.

Of course, this is totally unnecessary.

United could simply make reasonable accommodations for their employees who are claiming either a religious or medical exemption.

But, until United adopts that policy, we are asking you to consider boycotting the "unfriendly skies" and find another airline for your travel needs. By doing so, you will meaningfully stand shoulder-to-shoulder with these aggrieved United employees.

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition to boycott United Airlines over the company's failure to respect religious and medical COVID vaccine exemptions for its employees.

The Cheney family, thanks to Dick Cheney’s interference in sovereign state issues, turned their “very personal” family matter into state and, ultimately, national policy. His meddling emboldened and gave cover to progressives seeking to undo the definition not only of marriage, but of family, man, woman, boy, and girl.

Daddy’s girl

In the 60 Minutes interview, Liz Cheney then went on to offer an unsolicited endorsement for mainstreaming gender confusion.

“We were at an event a few nights ago and there was a young woman who said she doesn’t feel safe sometimes because she’s transgender,” recounted Cheney, seemingly refering to a gender-dysphoric man as a “young woman,” and “she.”

“And nobody should feel unsafe. Freedom means freedom for everybody,” said Liz Cheney, echoing the very same phrase which first fell from her father’s lips way back in 2000 on the campaign trail, expressing his openness to same-sex marriage. It was a phrase which he repeated many times over the ensuing years.

As the last hold-out in her family, Liz Cheney’s capitulation to same-sex marriage and transgenderism in her 60 Minutes interview showcases the once thought-to-be conservative Cheney family’s final descent into sexual and gender confusion.

Lesley Stahl rightly noted to Liz Cheney earlier in the interview that despite her continuing identification as a conservative Republican, “You have become in a way a hero to the liberals.”
