    Fresh off her ouster from House Republican leadership, Rep. Liz Cheney is maintaining her crusade to do “whatever it takes” to oppose former President Donald Trump. Cheney (R-Wyo.), who was removed Wednesday morning from her position as House Republican Conference chair for her focus on criticizing Trump, made the comments in an interview with NBC’s “Today” after being asked three times about mounting her own 2024 run. “Right now, I am very focused on making sure that our party becomes again a party that stands for truth and stands for fundamental principles that are conservative and mostly stands for the...

    Mark Levin from tonight's Hannity: Where the hell are you guys? Can't you get the chips off your shoulders. Donald Trump defeated your candidates and defeated your brother fair and square. The American people supporter you....They defended you when you came under attack by the same people who attacked Donald Trump. And you have done nothing. You have said nothing about what Joe Biden is doing. Are you not concerned about what Joe Biden and his party is doing in our classrooms and indoctrinating our children on racism. Are you not concerned about what is going on on the border?...

    More than 100 Republican leaders are threatening to form a third party. The group is threatening to split from the Republican Party because of Donald Trump’s stranglehold. “I’m still a Republican, but I’m hanging on by the skin of my teeth because of how quickly the party has divorced itself from truth and reason,” said Miles Taylor, a former Trump-era Department of Homeland Security official and an organiser of the campaign. “I’m one of those in the group that feels very strongly that if we can’t get the Republican Party back to a rational party that supports free minds, I’m...

    For more than two decades the Cheney and Bush families and Karl Rove have run the Republican Party by controlling fundraising. In 2016, Jeb Bush raised and spent more than $130 million from this powerful network of donors, at a cost of $46 million per delegate whom he won. At the same time, Karl Rove was predicting that if Donald Trump became the Republican nominee then Democrats would win the White House and the Senate. The opposite happened as Trump became president and his coattails lifted to victory many Republican senatorial candidates, such as Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania. Yet the...

    A man hiking a Missouri trail was shot over the weekend by a hunter who mistook him for a turkey, police say. Around 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, St. Charles County police responded to the Lewis and Clark Trail, the agency wrote in a Facebook post. A hunter thought the hiker was a turkey and shot him, police said. Rescue crews used a utility task vehicle to remove the man from the wooded area before he was flown to a hospital “with serious, life threatening injuries,” a spokesperson for the St. Charles Ambulance District told KMOV. The incident is under investigation.

    The top two Republicans in the House are behind Rep. Elise Stefanik's efforts to replace Rep. Liz Cheney as Republican conference chair as the party continues to grapple over former President Trump's future role, according to a report. Fox News confirmed Tuesday that Stefanik, R-N.Y., is making calls to members to build support for a potential challenge to Cheney. A senior GOP leadership source told Fox News earlier this week a vote to remove Cheney is "more than likely." House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., spokesperson Lauren Fine told Fox News Wednesday that "House Republicans need to be solely focused...

    Rep. Liz Cheney said in an interview with Punchbowl News Thursday that she will stand behind her vote to impeach former President Trump "every day of the week" as she faces multiple primary challengers in her 2022 reelection effort. Cheney, R-Wyo., is the chair of the House Republican conference and has taken heat from many on the right over her vocal condemnation of Trump after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by a mob of his followers. That has spurred Trump's wrath in multiple forums and triggered a handful of Republicans to announce primary challenges to her -- Trump...

    Rep. Liz Cheney said Wednesday that former President Donald Trump should have no role in the future of the Republican Party or the country. The No. 3 House Republican denounced Trump after she was asked at a press conference if she thought it was appropriate for Trump to be speaking Sunday at the annual CPAC event. “That’s up to CPAC. I’ve been clear on my views about President Trump and the extent to which following Jan. 6, I don’t believe that he should be playing a role in the future of the party or the country,” she said.

    Liz Cheney's backlash sends a warning signal to GOP senators weighing impeachment, but the issues run far deeper.CHEYENNE, Wyo — Hundreds flocked the Wyoming State Capitol Tuesday, kicking off a campaign to oust Republican Rep. Liz Cheney after the state’s at-large representative joined Democrats in another effort to impeach President Donald Trump. Two weeks ago, Cheney triggered the backlash escalating to a protest in her own state when she declared she would be casting her vote for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s second rushed impeachment featuring an article passed without a single hearing, significant deliberation, or witness. The vote ignited a...

    Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney exchanged heated words Thursday after the senator held up the passage of a $740 billion defense bill over language that could delay the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. Paul opposes a provision that would limit the president’s ability to withdraw troops deployed overseas, arguing the bill would create “535 commanders in chief.” The senator took aim at Cheney during a lengthy speech on the Senate floor, accusing the House Republican Conference chair of supporting executive power to start military conflicts but not to withdraw from them. “The neoconservative philosophy...

    Election tech company Dominion Voting Systems is rebutting assorted claims of partisan bias and voting manipulation in the 2020 election, including rumors of a secret U.S. military raid on purported servers in Germany and ownership interests and other influence in the firm by prominent Democratic families. At the same time, Dominion has confirmed reports it made a donation to the Clinton Foundation and hired a former Nancy Pelosi staffer as a lobbyist. Dominion has been at the center of a firestorm since Nov. 3, when its election management software, which is widely used across the country, led to an unofficial...

    A tweet claiming that CNN reported former Vice President Dick Cheney will be advising President-elect Joe Biden on foreign policy went viral on Twitter: CNN has reported no such thing. A review of the network’s recent election coverage does not include any reporting to suggest Cheney will advise Biden in any capacity, and CNN's head of strategic communications, Matt Dornic, took to Twitter to set the record straight:

    DOVER, Del. - Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden received five student draft deferments during the Vietnam War, the same number of deferments received by Vice President Dick Cheney, and later was disqualified from service because of asthma that he suffered as a teenager. Officials with Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama's campaign released Biden's Selective Service records at the request of The Associated Press. Less detailed records were available from a National Archives facility in Philadelphia. According to the documents, Biden, 65, received several deferments while he was an undergraduate at the University of Delaware and later as a law...

    Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney posted a photo of former Vice President Dick Cheney sporting a face mask on Friday and took a shot at the manhood of people who refuse to wear face coverings in a seeming jab at President Donald Trump. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, posted the photo her father as lawmakers push harder for their constituents to wear face masks to limit the spread of coronavirus. Trump has been loath to wear a mask, despite the advice of public health experts. "Dick Cheney says WEAR A MASK. #realmenwearmasks," the younger Cheney tweeted Friday along with...

    When President George W. Bush asked Colin Powell if the United States should invade Iraq in 2003 and overthrow dictator Saddam Hussein, the secretary of state and former general refused to give a straight answer. “I didn’t say to him, ‘I oppose this war,’” Powell says in a book published today about U.S. foreign policy after the Cold War. “Because it wouldn’t have worked.” That admission sheds light on Bush’s decision to launch the war that defined his presidency. Powell acknowledged his muted opposition in James Mann’s new book, The Great Rift, an account of how Powell’s rivalry with Vice...
