    June 7 (UPI) -- Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Friday will launch what he calls the largest ever coordinated campaign to beat climate change, which will close all U.S. coal plants by 2030. Bloomberg said the $500 million program, Beyond Carbon, will put the United States on track toward a 100 percent clean energy economy by working with advocates to "build on leadership and climate progress already underway." Bloomberg and his foundation joined with the Sierra Club in 2011 to launch Beyond Coal with the goal of closing at least a third of U.S. coal plants. "With...

    President Trump is barreling toward a showdown with Congress over his decision to pull back U.S. troops in northern Syria despite widespread opposition. The announcement, which caught leadership and traditional GOP allies flatfooted, sparked a wave of condemnation, with Republicans calling it a “disaster in the making,” a “catastrophic mistake” and a “terrible decision.” Lawmakers are already weighing how to respond to Trump’s decision, setting the stage for a high-profile clash with Trump as soon as Congress returns from a two-week break on Monday. “Congress must and will act to limit the catastrophic impact of this decision,” said Rep. Liz...

    President Trump in June chose not to respond to Irans downing of an unmanned U.S. drone with a strike that military advisers told him might kill hundreds of Iranians, inviting escalation that would increase the risk to American military personnel in the region. This month, the President announced his consideration of a peace agreement that could lead to withdrawal of our nearly two decade-long troop presence in Afghanistan. On both occasions, among those most critical of the Presidents actions was our own Congresswoman Liz Cheney. President Trumps failure to respond to this kind of direct provocation that weve seen now...

    Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Authorities in Wyoming said they had to use a Taser to subdue a moose so they could disentangle its antlers from a resident's hammock. The Sublette County Sheriff's Office said deputies and Wyoming Game and Fish personnel responded to a residence this week where a bull moose was reported to be caught in a hammock hanging from a tree. "Due to the nature of the entangled animal and the proximity to hunting season, a tranquilizer would render the animal not harvestable and inedible," the sheriff's office said. The deputies used a Taser to subdue the moose...

    At least 10 Republican members of Congress are supporting Israel's decision to block Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from entering the country after Trump specifically requested it. On Thursday, Trump tweeted that it would be a sign of "great weakness" if Israel allowed the two congresswomen, who have been outspoken critics of Trump, to enter the country. Later that day, Israel officially blocked their entrance. "Israels denial of entry to Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar is a sign of weakness, and beneath the dignity of the great State of Israel," Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement. Most...

    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...

    Weatherby ribbon-cutting cermonyWhen Weatherby Inc. opened its doors to their new headquarters in Sheridan, Wyoming on June 13, 2019, it ushered in a lot more than customers, employees and the media. The company welcomed something they havent felt in years freedom.You see, when Weatherby packed up their people and gun-building business in Paso Robles, Calif., one thing they couldnt bring with them was Californias support for the 2nd Amendment. It doesnt exist. And, as Adam Weatherby discovered immediately, Wyoming doesnt simply tolerate the 2nd Amendment to our Constitution, they support it openly and passionately. Californias distain for Americans constitutional...

    First, take a deep breath. Now take a look at the Wall Street Journal. The otherwise fine newspaper editorially on Saturday blasted President Trump. For what? For not killing Iranians and blowing up Iranian targets to show how super our American power is. The president acted humanely and rationally, weighing proportionality in response to Irans downing of our spy drone over international waters (we say) or Iranian waters (they say). The WSJ, of course, is an authority on the subject of territoriality and sovereignty and the respect thereof. The newspaper for years insisted that the United States should have no...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed it was Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) not herself who appropriated vernacular associated with the Holocaust in her criticism of the self-avowed Democratic socialists comparison of U.S. border facilities to concentration camps. Reminder: the member who directly + explicitly compared concentration camps on our border to the Holocaust was *Liz Cheney.* The horrors of the Holocaust went beyond the use of concentration camps, yet camps were part of the process, Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. They have also been used before and after, she added. Ocasio-Cortez has garnered a flurry of criticism since referring to...

    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.

    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...

    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,...

    The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney says the nation has to unite behind Donald Trump and make him the next commander in chief. Liz Cheney, who is running for Wyoming's at-large seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, told Rush Limbaugh's syndicated radio show on Friday: "In Wyoming there's no question for us that Hillary Clinton would be devastating and far, far worse than Donald Trump. We've gotta unify behind him and make sure Hillary Clinton's not elected. "She is a felon. She clearly violated the law with respect to her personal server and her...

I think what is really crucially important to remember here is that you had Strzok and Page who were in charge of launching this investigation and they were saying things like, 'We must stop this president, we need an insurance policy against this president,' the Wyoming Republican said during an interview with ABC News' This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

    Heres what happened. A suit was filed by WildEarth Guardians, Physicians for Social Responsibility, and the Western Environmental Law Center prior to the 2016 election. It alleged the Bureau of Land Management, which oversees oil and gas exploration of federal lands, failed to calculate and limit the amount of greenhouse gas emissions from future oil and gas projects. Judge Rudolph Contreras agreed, ruling that BLM did not adequately quantify the climate change impacts of oil and gas leasing and must consider the cumulative impact of GHG [greenhouse gas] emissions generated by past, present and future BLM leases across the country.

    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...

    BOISE, Idaho Four conservation groups have asked a judge to block a Trump administration plan allowing drilling, mining and other activities in seven Western states they say will harm sage grouse. Western Watersheds Project and other groups asked for the injunction in U.S. District Court in Idaho late last week for Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Nevada, California and Oregon.
