    Christian Bale doesn't know for sure if Dick Cheney ever watched last year's political satire Vice, which netted Bale an Oscar nomination and Golden Globe win for playing Cheney. But as Bale begrudgingly revealed to Yahoo Entertainment this week, he did receive a message secondhand from the 78-year-old former vice president, who served under George W. Bush for eight years. And it was short and not so sweet. "Strangely enough it was through my son's school, one of the moms was at a party that Cheney was at, and she said, 'Oh, I'm going to be seeing Christian tomorrow, you...

    President Trump knows a bad deal when he sees one. He extricated the United States from President Barack Obamas disastrous nuclear accord with Iran. He pulled us out of an arms-control agreement with Russia that Vladimir Putin repeatedly violated. But if news reports are accurate, the State Department is about to capitulate to the Taliban, al-Qaedas longtime ally, as U.S. forces are withdrawn from Afghanistan. The president should reject this deal.

    Former vice president Dick Cheney and his daughter Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., are to appear at a lunch fundraiser Monday in support of President Donald Trump's 2020 reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee, according to an invitation to the event. The luncheon fundraiser in Jackson, Wyoming, will feature White House advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, along with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney as "special guests," according to the invitation, which was obtained by The Washington Post. The invitation does not list the official titles of Mulvaney and the president's daughter and son-in-law, and it clarifies...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) compared President Donald Trump to his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, for calling off a military retaliation against Irans regime. So Ill wait to see additional information on it, but I think its important that people recognize that the United States is going to keep its word and not go down the path that President Obama went down, Cheney told a CNN reporter on Friday.

    On Monday, after Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) (who is fearless in calling out anti-Semitism) had properly called out Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) for her latest display of it, Tlaibs good friend Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) attacked Cheney with a tweet that was both vicious and self-pitying, ranting, Give it up, we all know you never met a Muslim you didnt want to vilify! Your deep seeded hate and Islamophobia might be a tool to rally your base, but wont get rid your colleagues. You just have to deal. In response to Tlaibs anti-Semitic remarks about the Holocaust, Cheney had tweeted,...

    Rep. Liz Cheney could face competition if she decided to run for the Republican nomination for Senate in Wyoming, with former Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis weighing a 2020 bid. Lummis, 64, who retired from Congress in 2016 after four terms, is considering a political comeback in the wake of Republican Sen. Mike Enzi's decision forgo reelection. Republicans close to Lummis said she would not be discouraged from running by Cheney, 52, whose failure so far to say whether she will make the race has otherwise frozen the field of potential candidates. Cheney, Lummis' successor as Wyoming's at-large representative, is the daughter...

    Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) announced Saturday that he will retire from the Senate at the end of his current term, capping off a 22-year career in Washington. Enzi, 75, who currently serves as chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, made the announcement while speaking at city hall in Gillette, Wyo., where he once served as mayor. "I have much to get done in the next year and a half," he said in prepared remarks released by his office. "I want to be able to focus on budget reform to get control of our national debt," he said. "I dont want...

    House Reps. Liz Cheney and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez clashed on Twitter over each other's understanding of the Constitution. Cheney, R-Wyo., took issue with a comment Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., made during a recent MSNBC town hall event in which the freshman congresswoman talked about Democrats being in control of Congress in the 1930s and 1940s. When our party was boldest, the time of the New Deal, the Great Society, the Civil Rights Act and so on, we had, and carried, supermajorities in the House, in the Senate. We carried the presidency, she told MSNBCs Chris Hayes. They had to amend the Constitution of...

    Full Title: Former vice president Cheney challenges Pence at private retreat, compares Trumps foreign policy to Obamas approach A chummy discussion between Vice President Pence and former vice president Richard B. Cheney quickly turned into a vigorous back-and-forth over President Trumps foreign policy at a private gathering Saturday, with Cheney comparing the presidents instincts to those of his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama, according to a transcript obtained by The Washington Post. Cheneys questions for Pence which prompted Pence to joke about the lack of softball topics provide a revealing glimpse into the churning and often strained debates inside...

    Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., continued her attack on Sunday on last weeks Democratic resolution condemning anti-Semitism and other bigotry saying that it was nothing more than a move to protect Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., by not calling her out by name. Cheney, the third-ranking Republican in House, was one of the few and certainly the most prominent members of the GOP to break with the party to oppose the resolution last Thursday. At the time she labeled it "a sham put forward by Democrats to avoid condemning one of their own and denouncing vile anti-Semitism." Speaking on...

    Minnesota Democrat criticized for anti-Israel statements, BDS supportHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been hit with a backlash over her decision to assign freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, despite the Minnesota Democrats record of anti-Israel advocacy. The House Republican leadership blasted the decision, citing Ms. Omars 2012 tweet saying that Israel had hypnotized the world and was guilty of evil doings, as well as her support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. It is disgraceful that Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat majority gave a coveted seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee to a...

    We literally blew into Cheyenne last night. Wyoming never disappoints but yesterday was one of their epic High Wind Alert days, complete with Interstate closures to light high-profile vehicles. Im not positive exactly what sort of vehicle that is but Im pretty sure empty semi-tractor trailers qualify as you always see a few of them flipped over on the side of the road when the wind socks are flying parallel.It was also inauguration day for Mark Gordon, Wyomings new governor. We should have known something was up as all the hotel rates were hyper-inflated. Another clue: when we checked in...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) is firing back at Christian Bale after the actor said during a Golden Globes acceptance speech that Satan inspired him when he played her father, Dick Cheney. While accepting an award in the “Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy” category late Sunday, the “Vice” star said to laughs from the crowd, “Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role.” A chuckling Bale also blasted Dick Cheney and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) as “charisma-free [expletive]” during his fiery remarks. After the awards ceremony, Liz Cheney, 52,...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) added her name to the long list of lawmakers to publicly oppose President Trump's decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria. She minced no words during her appearance on "Face the Nation" over the weekend. "I am deeply, deeply concerned, and I oppose strongly the president's decision apparently to withdraw troops from Syria, the apparent decision that we're now going to be looking to withdraw troops from Afghanistan," Cheney said. "I think the president has done a lot of very good things in terms of beginning to rebuild our military, getting out of the Iranian...

    Vicethe new biopic about our greatest living vice president, Dick Cheneyis the movie our country needs right now: a story about a small-town guy who overcame the odds and kept his fellow Americans safe in an age of nihilistic terror. It is also the hagiography we need right now, a reminder that America's greatness lies not with its natural resources or fantastic wealth but within the spirit of her citizens. One gets the sense that writer/director Adam McKay intended Vice as a damning critique of the Republican Party's Darth Vader. If that's the case, he's badly missed the mark. The...

    Then-Attorney General John D. Ashcroft was "feeble," "barely articulate" and "stressed" moments after a hospital room confrontation in March 2004 with Alberto R. Gonzales, who wanted Ashcroft to approve a warrantless wiretapping program over Justice Department objections, according to notes from FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III that were released yesterday. One of Mueller's entries in five pages of a daily log pertaining to the dispute also indicated that Ashcroft's deputy was so concerned about undue pressure by Gonzales and other White House aides for the attorney general to back the wiretapping program that the deputy asked Mueller to bar...

    Specifically, Cheney pointed to members of the incoming class of congressional Democrats who may implore likely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to take up such an agenda. "We have a lot of Democrats now coming in who are socialists. I'm not exaggerating, they are socialists," Cheney said during a panel on Fox News Sunday. "And I think that it's very important that we actually do have very aggressive and clear policy debates. We've got to make sure that we understand the grave national security threat that's out there, as well as the threat that we're facing from the perspective of...

    Here is video of Fox News' Megyn Kelly telling Democrat Rep. Jerrold Nadler, "Let me educate you," about the facts regarding the supposed CIA "torture" interrogations. Kelly was talking with Nadler about former Vice-President Dick Cheney's criticism of Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama for going forward with investigations of Bush-era CIA operatives who interrogated terrorist suspects. Kelly was "educating" Nadler about the idea that CIA agents should be subjected to investigation when they were following legal advice at the time. She also educated him that Career Prosecutors at the Department of Justice looked into this five years ago...
