    Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon defended his decision Friday to veto a bill that would have ensured babies who survive abortions receive basic medical care. In a statement, the Republican governor claimed to be pro-life despite his rejection of the pro-life bill, according to the Christian Post. “Laws already in place protect children from being denied life-saving care simply because they were born as a result of an abortion,” Gordon said in his veto message. He claimed the bill could unintentionally hurt families. “This bill will not do anything to improve on those laws which already exist,” he continued. “Instead, this...

    In a surprising move, Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon vetoed a bill to require basic medical care for newborn babies who survive abortions. Gordon, a Republican who says he is pro-life, claimed the bill is unnecessary, KPVI News 6 reports. “Laws already in place protect children from being denied life-saving care simply because they were born as a result of an abortion,” he said in his veto statement. Senate File 97, sponsored by Sen. Cheri Steinmetz, R-Lingle, requires abortionists to “take medically appropriate and reasonable steps to preserve the life and health of an infant born alive” from an abortion. Abortionists...

    Believe me, these ten minutes are worth your time. Here's Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) absolutely ripping House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Democrats for sneaking in a laundry list of progressive, environmental provisions into the CARES Act, the third phase of Congress's coronavirus response intended to provide aid, relief, and economic security for individuals and businesses during this unpredictable era. Barrasso kicked off his remarks by condemning "the demands by the Democrats to muck up a bill that is designed as a rescue operation for the American people." He next identified the culprit. "Nancy Pelosi flew back from California...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has no intention of dropping out of the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, and as the July convention draws closer, his decision to keep his campaign alive may mean chaos for the Democratic party. Five more states have suspended their Democratic primaries amid concerns about coronavirus, and it may soon be impossible for any candidate to win a majority of delegates. The New York Times reports that Indiana, Connecticut, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, and Maryland have now joined Ohio in postponing their presidential contests, leaving the future of the Democratic presidential nomination uncertain. Ohio, of...

    More than 100 vehicles were involved in a series of crashes over the weekend on an interstate in Wyoming that left three people dead and dozens injured, officials revealed on Monday.

"Weather is reported to be a factor in these crashes," police said. The 100-vehicle pileup, and another one nearby around the same time involving 40 vehicles, happened in snowy, blustery weather.

    Top Republican senators dismissed leaked details from former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book, saying the allegations were not new.“There’s nothing new here. It does seem to be an effort to sell books,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), the No. 3 Republican in the Senate, told reporters in Washington on Monday.“The basic dynamic of the obligation of the House to take the time they have to put a case together doesn’t change. I don’t think it changes any fundamental information, nor does it change the basic case that the House has to put the case together,” added Sen. Roy...

    Video at link, Sen Barrasso segment begins at 5:04 min. On Saturday, President Donald Trump's defense team had the opportunity to poke holes in the House Democrats' impeachment case. One of the topics the defense team instantly ran with was House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff's (D-CA) totally bogus narrative of what took place in Trump's July 25th call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. According to Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), when the defense team played the video of Schiff "reading" his version of the call transcript, "the blood drained from Adam Schiff's face." "Today we heard a presentation that was...

    Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) says he saw blood drain from Adam Schiff’s face when Trump’s lawyers confronted him about his fake call and transcript. Barrasso was seated in the second row, per the Senate seating chart. Deputy White House Counsel Mike Purpura opened the White House defense of President Donald Trump with video of Adam Schiff’s fake call and transcript he read during the House impeachment proceedings. Mike Purpura played the video immediately after taking the podium on Saturday. And there Schiff was lying his face off for the whole world to see. Schiff completely fabricated transcript of Trump’s phone...

    President Trump’s defense team opened their arguments against impeachment on Saturday by attacking the credibility of lead Democratic impeachment manager Adam Schiff. “Impeachment shouldn’t be a shell game,” lead impeachment attorney Pat Cipollone told senators. A group of Trump’s defense team argued for only two hours against the two articles of impeachment charging Trump with obstruction of Congress and abuse of power.... “The most effective thing that happened was when they first read the transcript of the phone call, and then played the video,” Sen. John Barrasso, a Wyoming Republican, said. “From where I was sitting, the blood drained from...

    U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi an “embarrassment” Tuesday evening after Pelosi reportedly attended a Washington restaurant opening following Iran's missile fire against U.S. troops in Iraq. “Speaker Pelosi is an embarrassment and unfit for office,” Cheney wrote as she retweetd a photo posted online purportedly showing the speaker at the restaurant in Washington's Navy Yard neighborhood. “Closely monitoring the situation following bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq,” Pelosi had tweeted earlier, before she was photographed at Danny Meyer’s Maialino Mare restaurant. “We must ensure the safety of our servicemembers, including ending needless provocations from the...

    Roughly a dozen GOP senators want to change the Senate’s rules and allow for lawmakers to dismiss articles of impeachment against President Trump before the House sends them over. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) introduced the resolution on Monday, arguing the Senate's impeachment rules do not envision a scenario where the House would delay transmitting articles against a president, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has done. "The Constitution gives the Senate sole power to adjudicate articles of impeachment, not the House. If Speaker Pelosi is afraid to try her case, the articles should be dismissed for failure to prosecute and Congress...

    Washington (CNN)More than 200 members of Congress are urging the Supreme Court to reconsider -- if not overrule -- the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion nationwide. Thirty-nine Republican senators and 168 members of the House of Representatives, almost all of them Republicans, signed a so-called "friend of the court" brief filed on Thursday by the national anti-abortion group Americans United for Life in connection with a challenge to a Louisiana abortion access law due to be heard in March. The signers include Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Mike Lee and Mitt Romney...

    Whitney Wickes, who recently moved her Rocking WW Minerals company from Colorado to Sheridan, has been named one of Forbes Magazine's list of top "30 Under 30" entrepreneurs.

Wickes, Rocking WW Minerals co-founder and recent Sheridan transplant, was named to Forbes 30 under 30 top entrepreneurs for 2020 in the energy sector this month. Wickes was contacted as one of 20,000 nominees throughout 16 industries in October and asked to...

    A bill filed in advance of the next legislative session would make gold and silver legal tender again in the state of South Carolina. State Representative Stewart O. Jones submitted legislation that would restore gold and silver to their status as legal tender in his state. In an op-ed written in October, Representative Jones set out the sound economic principles that support his proposed statute: To understand the full extent of the debt and the destruction of the dollar, it’s essential to realize that paper money has a history of being printed as bills of credit to finance runaway government....

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (Nov. 22, 2019) – A bill prefiled in the South Carolina House would make gold and silver coins legal tender in the state. Passage of this bill would take a step toward creating currency competition in South Carolina and undermine the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money. Rep. Stewart Jones filed House Bill 4678 (H.4678) on Nov. 20. Under the proposed law, “gold and silver coins minted foreign or domestic shall be legal tender in the State of South Carolina under the laws of this State. No person or other entity may compel another person or other entity to...

    The third-ranking House Republican is calling for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's security men to be denied entry to the United States — or expelled — for beating U.S. citizens after his last visit to the White House. Fifteen of Erdoğan's guards were criminally charged for attacking Americans in Washington in May 2017. The guards were allowed to flee, but two Turkish-American collaborators were sentenced to one year in prison. Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, chairwoman of the House Republican Caucus, wrote Monday to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that those involved in 2017 attacks should be barred from returning this...
