  • Feds Want To Put Tracking Devices On Big Rigs; Gov’t Could Access Data Whenever They Want

    Cowboy State Daily (WY) ^ | 12/1/2022 | Kevin Killough, energy reporter
    The U.S. Department of Transportation is proposing a new rule that would require all commercial trucks used for interstate commerce to install tracking devices that would transmit location data and other personal information to police whenever law enforcement requests it. Roger King, owner of Cowboy State Trucking in Kemmerer, said it’s hard enough to find drivers, and putting federal tracking devices on trucks would be one more reason for people to find other jobs. “Nobody likes Big Brother looking at your every move,” King said in reference to the government surveillance figure in the George Orwell novel “1984.” King said...

    Biden’s war on fossil fuels may reduce funding for America’s national parks, according to the Western Energy Alliance, a nonprofit energy industry association for the U.S. West. The Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA), which was passed in August 2020, provides $1.9 billion for public lands and national park restoration, primarily from onshore oil and gas development on federal lands. The act combined the restoration and Land and Water Conservation funds, which supplies $900 million in matching grant money for state and local parks. No Federal Oil Biden campaigned on a promise that he was going to eliminate the oil industry,...

    A 2024 joint ticket consisting of Republican Liz Cheney and Democrat Stacey Abrams — who both failed to win seats in the recent midterm elections — is an “exciting” idea, according to an MSNBC panelist who suggested there is a strong “appetite” for such a movement. During an MSNBC segment Thursday night discussing the next moves for losing candidates, including a potential future presidential run by defeated Democrat Tim Ryan, MSNBC contributor and Voto Latino CEO Maria Teresa Kumar appeared to float her idea of a “good ticket” for the 2024 presidential election.

    Sen. Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.) on Monday declared that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, not former President Trump, is the leader of the Republican Party, signaling GOP support is shifting away from Trump in the wake of the 2022 midterm election. Asked by a reporter for Politico whether she would endorse Trump, Lummis replied, “I don’t think that’s the right question.” “I think the question is who is the current leader of the Republican Party. Oh, I know who it is: Ron DeSantis,” she said. “I’m saying currently, Ron DeSantis is the leader of the Republican Party, whether he wants to be...

    Former President Donald Trump released an ad urging voters to support America First Republican candidates to “help save America,” just days before next week’s midterm elections. The video starts with audio of Trump saying that next week’s election is a “referendum” on President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D), and Democrat Senate Leader Chuck Schumer (D).” “The radical left Democrat Congress is destroying our country,” Trump said. “You’re going to elect an incredible slate of True America First Republicans up and down the ballot.” The video displayed text encouraging voters to vote Republican while the montage of Trump’s audio...
  • Already With 90% Of The Wyoming Legislature, Republican Party Could Get More (Oh, no. Not more!!)

    cowboystatedaily.com ^ | 11/4/22 | Leo Wolfson
    The Wyoming Legislature’s ratio of 90% Republicans to 10% Democrats represents the widest gap in the nation, and Tuesday’s General Election could see the GOP further solidify its super-majority. But that doesn’t mean Cowboy State Democrats have no chance to retain the nine seats they now have total in the state Senate and House, or even pick up one or two more. When the polls close on Tuesday, it’s the state legislative races where things will likely be more interesting, where there’s potential for Republicans and Democrats to gain or lose seats. There are at least 10, and possibly up...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) on Tuesday said it is “disgraceful” for some Republicans to be mocking Paul Pelosi, the husband of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), after he was violently attacked at the couple’s San Francisco home last week. Cheney, speaking with journalist Judy Woodruff at an event put on by The City Club of Cleveland, specifically called out members of former President Trump’s family. “The fact that while Paul Pelosi was in ICU, had been brutally attacked, had a skull fracture and numerous other injuries, that there were members of my party mocking him, that there were members of President...

Liz Cheney’s (R-Wyo.) leadership PAC on Friday released a new ad in Arizona targeting two election deniers who are running for high-profile statewide offices, saying “we cannot give people power who will not honor elections.” “I don’t know that I have ever voted for a Democrat. But if I lived in Arizona, I absolutely would. You have a candidate for governor, Kari Lake, you have a candidate for secretary of State, Mark Finchem, both of whom have said that they will only honor the results of an election if they agree with it,” Cheney can be heard saying in...

    Any killing of a grizzly bear in Wyoming must be reported immediately and will trigger a federal investigation into whether the killing was legitimate self-defense, a wildlife official said. There have been two reported grizzly attacks in Wyoming in the past month. And in one of the incidents, the victim claimed to have hit the bear with several handgun rounds, possibly wounding or killing it. If a grizzly is killed, the first call made should be to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, the agency’s large carnivore expert, Dan Thompson, told Cowboy State Daily. “As with any conflicts between grizzly...

    The widespread and coordinated plan to divide the Republican Party has failed, and it’s a major reason why Democrat prospects for the 2022 midterms are so bad. Separating Republican officials from their growing coalition of voters and the issues they care about has been the Washington establishment’s goal for several years now. The “divide and conquer” plan is being run by the Democrat Party, its propaganda press, and former leaders of the Republican Party such as Liz Cheney, who see how the GOP’s new composition and approach has threatened or destroyed their hold on power. The D.C. partnership has worked...

During an interview on NBC's Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd asked the GOP lawmaker: "You clearly think this is a mistake...you are concerned about his speakership, what specifically concerns you?"

Anchor Chuck Todd said, “Donald Trump ends up the nominee in 2024. You’ve said you won’t be a Republican anymore, so it implies you think the party can be saved.” Cheney said, “I think the party has to come back from where we are right now, which is a dangerous and toxic place, or the party will splinter, and there will be a new conservative party that rises if...
