Dick Cheney
Who is Really in Charge?
Funny Photo of Cheney & Bush
A recent Time Magazine profile of Vice President Dick Cheney
Cheney was born in Casper in January 1941, so his brain crystallized into its current form just before the 1960s introduced the idea of fun into American life. Cheney's picture appears next to the definition of "dour" in the dictionary.
Suit Challenges Cheney's Wyoming Residency
A Florida lawyer filed suit Monday to block the election of Dick Cheney as the next vice president, challenging Cheney's claim to be a resident of Jackson Hole.
Is Dick Cheney a Texan?
Is Dick Cheney a Texan? While lawsuits fly in Florida over the recount, another federal lawsuit is approaching the election from a different angle. Lawrence A. Caplan of Boca Raton, Florida charges that Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Dick Cheney is a resident of Texas and therefore the state's 32 electoral votes cannot go for Bush-Cheney.
Texans challenge Cheney's residency status
Three Texas voters have sued to block Gov. George W. Bush from possibly becoming president by challenging running mate Dick Cheney's Wyoming residency status. The lawsuit was filed hours after a similar lawsuit was dismissed in Florida. The suit filed Monday claims Cheney is a resident of Texas and that he and Bush, therefore, shouldn't be awarded the state's 32 electoral votes. The lawsuit cites the 12th Amendment, which prohibits the president and vice president from living in the same state.
Court: Cheney not a Texan-Judges clear way for Texas electors to select GOP nominee
In a strongly worded ruling, a federal appeals court said Thursday that Dick Cheney is a Wyoming resident and would be qualified to serve as George W. Bush's vice president.
Cheney's Secrets

Dick Cheney, American Warmonger
In which the pallid, angry veep fervently urges bombing the hell out of Iraq, because he just can't help it
Cheney's misspeaking streak
In 2000, Cheney was the stealth vice presidential candidate whose image obliterated his radical associations with the far right and oil. Three years later, the stealth grandfather is the hired gun. His harm to America's integrity is now incalculable.
John Nichols: Too bad president needs a minder
The White House demanded that there be no recording or formal transcription of today's joint interview of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney by the 9/11 commission.
Cheney's mask is slipping
Already tarnished by questions surrounding the huge no-bid reconstruction contracts won by his former company, Halliburton, in which he retains a financial interest, as well as his refusal to disclose to Congress what meetings he held during his formulation of Bush's energy policy, Cheney is increasingly seen as a serious rightwing extremist and ideologue, and by far the most powerful number two in US history.
Cheney Energy Commission
Dick Cheney, 1998-"I cannot think of a time when we have had a region emerge as suddenly to become as strategically significant as the Caspian."
The documents, which are dated March 2001, concerning the activities of the Cheney Energy Task Force, contain a map of Iraqi oilfields, pipelines, refineries and terminals, as well as 2 charts detailing Iraqi oil and gas projects, and “Foreign Suitors for Iraqi Oilfield Contracts.”
Memo details Cheney--Enron links
While the White House insists that details of its talks with Enron officials remain secret, a memo outlining those discussions reveals the extent to which the Houston energy giant lobbied to influence government policy.
The Cheney Energy Task Force: A review and analysis of the proceedings leading to the Bush administration's formulation of its May 2001 energy policy.
In the spring of 2002, under order from a federal judge, the U.S. Department of Energy released to NRDC roughly 13,500 pages relating to previously secret proceedings of the Bush administration's energy task force. (President Bush formed the task force in early 2001 to develop a national energy policy, with Vice President Cheney at the helm.) Even though the government heavily censored the documents before supplying them to NRDC, they reveal that Bush administration officials sought extensive advice from utility companies and the oil, gas, coal and nuclear energy industries, and incorporated their recommendations, often word for word, into the energy plan.
Data Shows Industry had Extensive Access to Cheney's Energy Task Force
A close examination of more than 12,000 pages of documents provided by the Energy Department confirms that energy industry lobbyists enjoyed extraordinary access to Vice President Cheney's energy task force. Industry representatives had 714 direct contacts while non-industry representatives had only 29. Some of them also are major donors to President Bush and Republican congressional candidates. For example:
White House forms energy task force, but offers California scant hope of aid January 29, 2001
As a key California utility warned it was running out of natural gas, President Bush unleashed a new Cabinet-level task force with the mandate to take swift, bold action to head off possible energy problems facing the nation. The panel will be led by Vice President Dick Cheney.
Scalia Shows His Cards
In a last ditch effort to keep the American people in the dark, Solicitor General Theodore Olson argued before the Supreme Court that the activities of Vice President Cheney's 2001 energy task force should remain completely secret.
Particularly receptive to Cheney's arguments: long-time friend and duck hunting partner Justice Antonin Scalia.
Scalia no stranger to Cheney's corner
Ironically, in the course of trying to refute that justification for disqualification in the energy case, Scalia has unintentionally made the far more important point that he should have disqualified himself in 2000 from Bush v. Gore, which made his old friend Dick Cheney the vice president of the United States.
Scalia scoffs at notion that he's biased toward Cheney

Scalia recently rejected a request by the Sierra Club, one of the groups suing Cheney, to recuse himself because of a duck-hunting trip he took with Cheney to Louisiana in January -- three weeks after the high court agreed to hear the Cheney case.

What we know
“LARGE contracts have been awarded by the Pentagon without the benefit of a competitive, transparent process.”The firm in question, of course, is Halliburton.
Cheney's Halliburton Will Run Iraq's Oilfields
Prior descriptions said Vice President Dick Cheney's former company would fight oil fires. The contract also lets the company operate the oil fields for a time and distribute the petroleum.
Cheney Office 'Coordinated' Halliburton Deal -Time
A Pentagon e-mail said Vice President Dick Cheney's office "coordinated" a multibillion-dollar Iraq reconstruction contract awarded to his former employer Halliburton, Time magazine reported on Sunday.
Email shows Cheney 'link' to oil contract
The US vice-president, Dick Cheney, helped to steer through a huge contract for the reconstruction of Iraq's oil industry on behalf of his old firm, Halliburton, Time magazine reported yesterday.
What did the Vice-President do for Halliburton?
For months, Cheney and Halliburton have insisted that he had no part in the government’s decision about the Iraq contracts.
HalliburtonWatch: Pentagon Broke Contract Laws To Help Halliburton
Contracting experts say it is highly unusual for political appointees to be involved in the contracting process since contracts are normally awarded by career civil servants with expertise in government contracting. Involvement by Cheney's chief of staff in the contracting process contradicts Cheney's assertion that he had no role in awarding contracts to his former company.
Shedding light on Halliburton
Halliburton's contracts have expanded in scope and increased in price, often without much public accounting for tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer funds. Pentagon auditors said in December that a Halliburton subsidiary may have overcharged the government $61-million to import fuel.
