  • Here's What Happened When Marjorie Taylor Greene and Liz Cheney Met on the House Floor

    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...
  • 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." ......
  • Bouchard experiences stark drop in donations as he seeks to best Cheney, Hageman

    10/19/2021 7:47:35 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 29 replies ^ | 10/18/21 | Victoria Eavis
    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. In quarter three — which spans from July to September — the campaign raised $65,500. That’s compared to $213,000 in the second quarter and $334,500 in the first quarter. Bouchard’s campaign has roughly $87,000 left in the bank. The campaign has considerably less cash on hand than Bouchard’s opponents: Rep. 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...

    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 Rep. Liz Cheney’s primary challenger landed former President Donald Trump’s endorsement before she even officially launched her campaign. Now, she’s cashing big checks from Trump’s biggest donors — including tech billionaire Peter Thiel. Thiel has contributed the maximum-allowed, $5,800 check to Harriet Hageman, the Trump-endorsed attorney running against Cheney in next year’s Republican primary. The former president has made Cheney, an outspoken critic who voted for his impeachment in January, his top target in the 2022 election, and now big-money benefactors like Thiel are piling into the race.
  • Teenager Arrested, High School Sent Into Lockdown All Over a Student Not Wearing a Mask

    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...

    JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Widespread news coverage of a woman found dead in western Wyoming helped searchers in an unrelated case find a man's body not far away, officials said. A team with a search dog looked for four hours Tuesday before finding the body of a man matching the description of Robert ‘Bob’ Lowery, according to a Teton County Search & Rescue statement. Lowery, 46, of Houston, went missing Aug. 20. The man's body was found on a steep, wooded slope in the area of Teton Pass in western Wyoming. How the man died wasn’t immediately clear. Authorities notified...

    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...

    The intense coverage of the Gabby Petito case has helped bring apparent closure to the family of a Texas man who went missing in Wyoming, where the Long Island native’s body was found, according to a report. The last trace from Robert Lowery, 46, a father of two from Houston, was reportedly a ping from his cellphone in Jackson on Aug. 23. Lowery was seen on video from Aug. 19 at a restaurant at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Teton Village. He was last spotted the following day in Bridger-Teton National Forest, where Petito’s body was found Sept. 19, CNN...

    We're all gonna die—and it's all the Republicans' fault! With some slight exaggeration, that was CNN's message this morning regarding Republican reluctance to raise the debt limit. Mugging a petrified look [see screencap] New Day co-host John Berman opened the show by predicting nothing short of "the potential collapse of the U.S. economy," because "Republicans have voted against paying U.S. debts." Moments later, Berman fearmongered: "The week from hell could turn into the economic calamity from hell if the U.S. defaults on its debts, which Republicans, for now, have voted to let happen." CNN economics commentator Alexis Glick took the...

    Few Americans fully realize the broad reach the Department of the Treasury uses to monitor international banking transactions. What’s even more opaque is how federal authorities also capture private information that is often disclosed to foreign governments, ones that do not have the same respect for privacy rights as we do in the U.S.Imagine the temptation for those strongarm leaders who are given the data. They can use that information to execute domestic goals that have zero to do with stopping illegal financial transactions but instead intimidate, even bankrupt businesses and advocacy groups that differ with that government’s agenda.If crafting...
