Grassroots Organization Will Seek to Educate Citizens, Influence Policy in
Support of a Strong National Defense and the Restoration of American Power
Wilson, WY: Today, Vice President Dick Cheney and Liz Cheney released a video announcing the formation and launch of The Alliance for a Strong America, a 501(c)4 grassroots organization that will advocate for a restoration of American strength and power.
The group will be led by former Vice President Cheney, who will serve as Chairman and Liz Cheney, who will be the group’s President. The committee is supported by citizens who are dedicated to the hard but necessary task of preserving freedom and restoring American strength and power in the wake of the Obama administration’s national security failures.
“Empty threats, meaningless redlines, leading from behind, retreat, and “engagement” with rogue regimes have put America on a path of decline,” former Vice President Dick Cheney said. He continued, “Threats to America are on the rise, and, yet, President Obama has repeatedly misled the American people about the attacks in Benghazi and the true nature of the threats we face.”
“We are forming the Alliance for a Strong America because we know America’s security depends upon our ability to reverse President Obama’s policies, ” said Liz Cheney, “We will provide information to citizens about security and defense policy, and lead the fight to restore American strength and power,” the President of the Alliance for a Strong America concluded.
LIZ CHENEY: I’m Liz Cheney.
VP CHENEY: I’m Dick Cheney. We stand at a critical moment in the life of our nation. The policies of the last six years have left America diminished and weakened. Our enemies no longer fear us. Our allies no longer trust us. Empty threats, meaningless redlines, leading from behind, and “engagement” with rogue regimes, have put America on a path of decline. Threats to America’s security are on the rise. Iran is marching towards a nuclear weapon. Al Qaeda is resurgent, establishing new safe havens across the Middle East, including in Iraq where President Obama withdrew all American forces with no stay behind agreement. He has announced he intends to the same in Afghanistan. Syria has become the most dangerous training ground for Islamic terrorists since the attacks of 9/11. President Obama has repeatedly mislead the American people about the attacks in Benghazi and the true nature of the threat we face.
LIZ CHENEY: We are forming The Alliance for a Strong America because we know America’s security depends upon our ability to reverse President Obama’s policies. We know that America is the exceptional nation and that there is no substitute for American leadership around the world. We know that America’s Armed Forces are the greatest fighting force and the greatest force for good the world has ever known. The Alliance for a Strong America will educate about and advocate for the policies needed to restore American power and pre-eminence. We will provide information to citizens about national security and defense policy, and ensure that these issues are a critical part of America’s national debate and discussion over the next two years and beyond.
VP CHENEY: In March 1983, President Ronald Reagan said, “It is up to us in our time to choose, and choose wisely between the hard but necessary task of preserving peace and freedom, and the temptation to ignore our duty and blindly hope for the best while the enemies of freedom grow stronger day by day.” We hope you will join us today in the hard but necessary task of preserving peace and freedom and restoring American strength and power.
