    10/23/2021 10:15:28 AM PDT · by rktman · 52 replies ^ | 10/22/2021 | Matt Vespa
    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), tangled with two members of the Jan.6 committee on the House floor Thursday, getting into an impromptu shouting match over Black Lives Matter and a wild conspiracy theory about Jewish space lasers starting California wildfires. Greene, a top Trump loyalist, crossed the aisle and approached Reps. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) as voting began on a resolution holding a former adviser of former President Trump, Stephen Bannon, in contempt for defying panel subpoenas. Greene first pressed Raskin — who led the Democrats’ prosecution of Trump during his impeachment trial after the Jan. 6...
  • Multiple states surpass Wyoming for donations to Cheney campaign

    10/22/2021 1:29:24 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 35 replies ^ | 10/22/21 | Victoria Eavis
    An unprecedented amount of out-of-state money is pouring into Rep. Liz Cheney's reelection effort, as she campaigns in one of the nation's highest-profile congressional races. The third quarter was the second-biggest fundraising period ever for Cheney, who is facing a tough reelection fight after her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump. She raised just over $1.7 million during that period, which runs from July to September. These hefty donations came on the heels of Cheney’s all-time fundraising record, $1.9 million, which occurred one cycle earlier. So far, only 6% of Cheney's itemized individual donations have come from donors who...
  • Liz Cheney’s Consultants Are Given an Ultimatum: Drop Her, or Be Dropped

    10/21/2021 5:33:31 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 31 replies ^ | Jonathan Martin
    A prominent Washington lobbyist close to Kevin McCarthy, the House minority leader, is warning Republican political consultants that they must choose between working for Representative Liz Cheney or Mr. McCarthy, an ultimatum that marks the full rupture between the two House Republicans. Jeff Miller, the lobbyist and a confidant of Mr. McCarthy’s dating to their youthful days in California politics, has conveyed this us-or-her message to Republican strategists in recent weeks, prompting one fund-raising firm to disassociate itself from Ms. Cheney, a Republican from Wyoming. In response, The Morning Group, a fund-raising firm she hired to help prepare for a...

    Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis said he will call together a special session of the Florida legislature to ban COVID-19 vaccine mandates on businesses. "We will be calling the Legislature back for a special session. We want to make sure that individuals in the state of Florida have their rights protected," DeSantis ... The governor added that state lawmakers will be called back next month because rules are being implemented on the federal level and deadlines are imminent. He said legislation, rather than executive orders, was the correct vehicle given that Florida is "not in a state of emergency." ......

    ormer President Donald Trump on Wednesday called Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) a “smug fool” after she pressed the House to back a criminal contempt vote against former White House aide State Bannon. “Low-polling Liz Cheney (19%) is actually very bad news for the Democrats, people absolutely cannot stand her as she fights for the people that have decimated her and her father for many years,” Trump said of the Wyoming Republican, who voted to impeach Trump and serves as vice chair of the Jan. 6 panel investigating the Capitol riot. “She is a smug fool, and the great State of...

    George W. Bush headlines a Dallas reception Monday to help embattled Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, the daughter of his vice president whose outspoken support for Donald Trump’s impeachment cost her a House leadership post and, if Trump gets his way, her political future. The high-profile boost amounts to a clear rebuke of Trump, and a sign of the irreparable chasm between the GOP’s last two presidents.

    Wyoming Sen. Anthony Bouchard’s campaign for U.S. House experienced a stark drop in fundraising in the most recent quarter, according to newly released federal campaign finance data.

Liz Cheney has almost $3,700,000 left in the bank, while Harriet Hageman, who received the coveted endorsement of former President Donald Trump, has...

    Trump called Rep. Liz Cheney a "psycho" and "not the brightest person in the world" in an interview. The comments are Washington Examiner's David Drucker's new book. Trump also slammed Sens.

    This is one of a series of detailed accounts of bear attacks found with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests by AmmoLand. On September 7, 2010, a pair of archery hunters were stalking moose in a remote part of Wyoming near Pinedale. A large boar grizzly bear attacked them. Fortunately, they were able to shoot the bear and stop the attack. In the morning, one of their guides had been scouting the area. He had seen two bull moose and what he thought was a large black bear. When he told the hunters about the moose and the bear, the...

    It's not surprising that a high school would be sent into lockdown over a student not wearing a mask. We've seen it happen before. But we've seen it happen in the socialist paradise of California. Wyoming is supposed to be a red state that is pro-freedom and unlike Joe Biden and the people who control Joe Biden, believes in science. School mask mandates aren't science. They're barely even "the" science. Yet Laramie High School in Wyoming was shut down because Grace Smith, a junior, didn't mask up.

    A 16-year-old Wyoming high school student was arrested for refusing to wear a mask, resulting in an hour-long school lockdown. Grace Smith, a Laramie High School student, said in an interview with Wyoming Sen. Anthony Bouchard about her arrest that she had received three separate two-day suspensions. She was also allegedly fined $1,000 for trespassing after she refused to leave the school's premises. "It makes me angry," Smith said. "It makes me feel unwanted by the school system. It makes me stressed out that I have to fight this battle as a 16-year-old. Right now, I should be playing sports...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) blasted House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) after he refused to say if he believed the 2020 presidential election was "stolen" from former President Trump. Earlier on Sunday, Scalise was pressed by "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace on whether he believed the 2020 election had legitimately been won by President Biden. Scalise refused to directly answer the question, repeatedly pointing to Constitutional rules and states' laws on elections. "Millions of Americans have been sold a fraud that the election was stolen. Republicans have a duty to tell the American people that this is not true....

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) on Sunday repeatedly avoided answering whether or not he believes the 2020 presidential election was "stolen," after Fox News' Chris Wallace pressed him on the matter. Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," Scalise blasted the Biden administration's handling of the economy, the COVID-19 pandemic and the two major bills that have stalled in Congress. After Scalise's numerous condemnations of the White House, Wallace specifically asked the GOP leader if he believed the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump and whether such claims undermines American democracy. "Well Chris, I've been very clear from...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) on Wednesday apologized to Gen. Mark Milley for what she called "despicable" questioning of the top military general by fellow Republican lawmakers during a congressional hearing, as the Joint Chiefs chairman fielded questions about comments he made following the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, and phone calls he had with a Chinese official to assure them that the U.S. was not preparing an attack. Cheney, during a House Armed Services Committee hearing about the U.S.’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, opened her five minutes of questioning by discussing the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, arguing that...

    Sen. Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo., on Tuesday let loose on Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen over the Biden administration's proposal to force banks to report to the Internal Revenue Service on every transaction Americans make that is $600 or more. "There are obvious privacy concerns for all Americans here and this represents a dramatic new regulatory burden for community banks and credit unions in Wyoming and elsewhere," Lummis told Yellen of the proposal, which is one of several aimed at helping to pay for President Biden's multitrillion-dollar plans for expanding social programs and fighting climate change. Lummis said, "Banks will have to...

    Wyoming lawmaker Liz Cheney said many GOP lawmakers in the House and Senate have approached her privately and cheered her on in her fight against former President Donald Trump. Appearing on "60 Minutes" with CBS host Lesley Stahl, Cheney said she had received encouragement from "a lot" of GOP lawmakers. "Have members of Congress, Republicans, come up to you privately and whispered in your ear, 'Way to go, Liz,' and encouraged you, but won't come forward and say that publicly?" Stahl asked Cheney. "The argument that you often hear is that if you do something that is perceived as against...
