U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney told Fox News this week that Congressional Democrats are desperate if they are considering impeaching President Donald Trump for nominating a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

In a short segment, Cheney responded to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s comments on CNN, when the Democratic representative said Republicans would be “paying the price for elections to come” if they nominated Ginsberg’s replacement before the presidential election.

Cheney said that Trump was doing his constitutional duty by nominating a Supreme Court replacement. She anticipated that the Senate would confirm the nominee.

This would be the president’s second Supreme Court nomination, following Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Cheney also said the American people are sick of Democrats’ calls to abolish the Electoral College, although it should be noted that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden doesn’t agree with this argument.

“The more the Democrats act as though they’re willing to burn the whole place down, that they do not believe in the Constitution, the more threats they make about court packing, the more the American people are just sick of it,” she said.

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney continued to speak out against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and vice president nominee Sen. Kamala Harris this week.

On Tuesday, Cheney delivered remarks at a House Republican news event regarding the GOP’s “Commitment to America” agenda, which calls for restoring American ideals and rebuilding the economy.

She noted the importance of participating in the general election in November, describing it as being critical to future legislation regarding the coronavirus, the economy, the military and “our founding values.”

“Every single day, the Democrats tell us what they would do in…’a Harris administration with Joe Biden,'” Cheney said. “They would defund our police, dismantle our freedom, destroy our history and abandon our founding values.”

Cheney continued to criticize the Democratic party in her speech, blaming Democratic administrations’ policies for this year’s wildfires in the West Coast states.

She also blamed unrest, violence and looting seen in several cities across the nation on the failure of Democrat leaders to enforce laws in their communities.

“Our cities are burning because Democrats won’t stand up against the rioting of thugs who are destroying the lives built by hard-working Americans over decades,” the representative said.

Neither did Cheney mince words when discussing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, whom Cheney has commented about many times in the past. She called the House speaker a “partisan hack” during her speech.

“The Democrats leading this House care so little about the American people that they have squandered 17 months trying to score political points while our nation faces unprecedented challenges,” she said.

The representative closed her comments by reiterating that the Republican party will continue to fight for American values and return power to the people all across the republic.

“We’ll make sure that our children know the unparalleled contribution to freedom this nation has made, and that they know that we enjoy the blessings of every one of those freedoms because of the men and women who wear the uniform of this country and who have sworn to protect us all,” she said.

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney and a number of her colleagues are inquiring about the Walt Disney Company’s cooperation with the Chinese government during the production of the “Mulan” remake.

A letter from members of Congress including Cheney was sent to Disney CEO Bob Chapek on Friday about Disney’s work with security and propaganda authorities in Xinjiang, an autonomous region of China where part of the movie was filmed.

The letter asks Chapek to explain why Disney filmed parts of “Mulan” in the Xinjiang Uighar Autonomous Region and why members of the film crew were required to cooperate with local security and “propaganda” elements.

In the letter from bipartisan group of lawmakers, members of Congress tell Chapek that Disney’s actions “offers tacit legitimacy to these perpetrators of crimes that may warrant the designation of genocide.”

The letter also asks Chapek to explain whether Disney has a policy about cooperating with entities that are “known human rights abusers” and to detail regions in the U.S. or the world where Disney has refused to film or engage in production for other than economic reasons.

It has been documented that the Chinese Communist Party is keeping Uighur Muslims in concentration camps in the Xinjiang Uighar Autonomous Region.

Legislators who joined Cheney in signing the letter included U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio, U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Massachusetts, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Sens. Rick Scott and Marco Rubio, both R-Florida, and U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, D-New Jersey.

“Mulan” was released in late September on Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+ and can be viewed for a $30 premium fee. The film’s production cost around $200 million.

Cheney Slams Biden, Pelosi For Not Speaking Out Against Defunding The Police

By Ellen Fike, Cowboy State Daily

In signing a pledge offering “unwavering” support for America’s police officers, Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney blasted former Vice President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for not condemning the “Defund The Police” movement.

“I proudly signed Heritage Action’s ‘Police Pledge,’ which states that we unequivocally support our police officers & will oppose any effort to defund them,” Cheney tweeted. “Our police officers in Wyoming & across the country are heroes & they deserve to be treated as such.”

“Democrats like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, who don’t speak out against the reckless campaign to ‘defund’ our police, are irresponsible and dangerous,” she said.

This wasn’t the first time Cheney slammed Pelosi this week. On Wednesday, Cheney took a swipe against the House Speaker for using a hair salon in San Francisco when all hair salons are supposed to be closed due to the pandemic.

“Hairpocrisy,” Cheney tweeted while posting a story of Pelosi’s ill-fated trip.

In related news, President Trump on Friday received an endorsement from the Fraternal Order of Police.

“Public safety will undoubtedly be a main focus for voters in this year’s election,” a spokesman for the organization said. “Look at what the national discourse has focused on for the last six months. President Trump has shown time after time that he supports our law enforcement officers and understands the issues our members face every day.”

Liz Cheney on Nancy Pelosi Hair Salon Scandal: “Hairpocrisy!”

in News/Liz Cheney

***For All Things Wyoming, Sign-Up For Our Daily Newsletter***

We know U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney is no fan of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and many times will jump at the opportunity to throw a barb her way — and usually they’re pretty funny.

With the controversy erupting over Pelosi going to a hair salon when all hair salons are closed in San Francisco, Cheney jumped again.

You don’t need to be longwinded to make a point and Cheney wasn’t.

“Hairpocrisy!” Cheney tweeted along with the hashtags “PelosiBlowout#.”

Cheney wasn’t alone in the criticism. President Trump joined the chorus of condemnation on Thursday afternoon when he chided Pelosi twice (so far).

Of course, like anything in the social media world, if you agree with the individual’s statement, you think it’s great.  If you disagree, it’s an anathema, an absolute disgrace, and a misuse of time.

Commenters didn’t disappoint.  Those who supported Cheney’s statement, said so.

“So it’s the hair stylists fault that the Congresswoman didn’t know the law? Really? The arrogance…,” said one Tweeter referencing Pelosi’s claim that she was set up.

Those who didn’t support Cheney’s tweet said so too.

“Great use of your energy,” said one disgruntled respondent.

“Liz never fails to disappoint with her insightful and intelligent perspective on the very crucial issues that impact all Americans,” said another.

Whether you agree or disagree with Cheney, her Twitter account is fun to follow.

Liz Cheney: Socialism Has Chokehold On The Dems

By Ellen Fike, Cowboy State Daily

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney appeared on Fox and Friends Wednesday morning to talk the Democratic National Convention, hours after she won the Wyoming primary election.

Cheney hasn’t been shy about her voicing her opinion about the Democratic presidential and vice-presidential candidates, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, respectively. Last week, she tweeted that Harris was a “radical liberal” who wanted to raise taxes and take away guns.

On the Wednesday morning appearance, Cheney said that if Biden and other Democrats won the general election in November, the country wouldn’t see an economic recovery.

“The economic policies that we have seen from President [Donald] Trump and from the Republicans in the House and the Senate over the course of last three-and-a-half years, the cuts in regulation, the cuts in taxes, those are the kinds of things that we have to see to bring the economy back again, to get people back to work,” she said.

“Socialism, which is the promise of Bernie Sanders and A[lexandria] O[casio] C[ortez], they have a chokehold on the Democratic platform, on Joe Biden’s policies going forward. They are the ones that will be setting the policy into the future. That would be an absolute devastation for this country.”

She added that Sanders, Ocasio Cortez and Biden were advocating for socialism while destroying the nation.

Cheney praised Trump’s work on illegal immigration during her Fox appearance, saying his border wall was important because Democrats wanted to use taxpayer funds to give free health care to illegal immigrants.

She also touched on former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s appearance at the DNC, criticizing his work on the Iran nuclear deal framework in 2015.

The representative ended her appearance with a critique of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party, saying Pelosi “failed to lead.”

“[Republicans] feel really good about our chances to take a message to the American people that we are the party that is going to bring back economic recovery, that’s going to bring back national security, defeat this virus, and get the economy going again,” she said.

Liz Cheney: Kamala Harris Is A “Radical Liberal”

By Ellen Fike, Cowboy State Daily

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney didn’t mince words this week after Joe Biden announced that U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris would be his vice presidential pick.

“Kamala Harris is a radical liberal who would raise taxes, take away guns & health insurance, and explode the size and power of the federal government,” Cheney wrote on Twitter. “She wants to recreate America in the image of what’s happening on the streets of Portland & Seattle. We won’t give her the chance.”

Cheney followed up that tweet with a retweet of a Fox News report, adding more comments about Harris. She said the California senator had a more liberal voting record than U.S. Sens. Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

The representative repeated her assertions that Harris wants to raise taxes, ban gun sales and eliminate private health insurance. She added Harris also wants to use taxpayer money for abortions and illegal immigrant health care.

“Would be devastating for America,” she wrote.

Cheney also retweeted a post about Harris by GOP national spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington, which featured similar claims. It also included comments about Harris wanting to have a “conversation” about lowering the voting age from 18 and letting terrorists vote from prison.

Liz Cheney: U.S. Won’t Tolerate Targeting Of Forces

in News/Liz Cheney

By Jim Angell, Cowboy State Daily

The United States will not tolerate the targeting of its forces by any foreign power, U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney said Tuesday.

Cheney, speaking during a press briefing in Washington, D.C., said any foreign power planning harm to American forces should be ready for significant consequences.

“I want to be absolutely clear, America’s adversaries should know, they should have no doubt that any targeting of U.S. forces by Russians, by anyone else will face a very swift and deadly response,” she said.

Cheney’s comments followed a White House briefing on reports that Russia was offering bounties to members of the Taliban who killed American soldiers in Afghanistan.

After the briefing, Cheney, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, issued a joint statement with U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, saying they were concerned about Russian activities in Afghanistan.

“It has been clear for some time that Russia does not wish us well in Afghanistan,” the statement said. “We believe it is important to vigorously pursue any information related to Russia or any other country targeting our forces. Congress has no more important obligation than providing for the security of our nation and ensuring our forces have the resources they need.”

During the press briefing, Cheney declined to discuss the specifics of what was discussed in the White House briefing.

However, she said that any force targeting U.S. forces should not underestimate the level of response.

“America’s adversaries should never question the will of the United States government or of the American people to defend our interests, to protect the security of our nation, to protect our forces and to respond when attacked or threatened,” she said.

Cheney: China Intentionally Let Virus Spread to U.S. and the World

***For All Things Wyoming, Sign-Up For Our Daily Newsletter***

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney today said the Chinese government purposely let the coronavirus spread to the United States and the rest of the world.

Cheney, appearing on FOX & Friends Tuesday morning, said when China saw the spread of the virus in its own country, the government restricted domestic travel but let international travel continue.

“When they understood the economic devastation was going to be huge, I think they believed they would rather have that spread around the globe rather than it simply be something they suffered from,” she said.

For that, Cheney said the country must be held accountable.

“Clearly they cannot continue to be a member of the civilized community of nations because of what they’ve done and because of the lies,” she said.

Moving forward, Cheney said the U.S. must act to move supply chains away from China and restrict the country’s participation in certain affairs

“We have to take steps to ensure that they do not have the seat at the table that they have had in the past,” she said.

“We have to make sure we are defending ourselves and that the U.S. leads the free world. The world has to live by rules set by countries that believe in freedom and not set by the Communist Chinese party,” Cheney said.

Liz Cheney Donates to Primary Opponent of “Most Hated Man in Congress”

***For All Things Wyoming, Sign-Up For Our Daily Newsletter***

Count another Member of Congress firmly against Republican Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky.

This member is close to home — Wyoming’s sole representative in the House of Representatives, Liz Cheney.

Bloomberg News on Thursday reported that Cheney’s political action committee — Cowboy PAC — donated $2,500 to the primary opponent of Rep. Massie just four days after he forced the House to return to DC to vote in person on the $2 trillion economic stimulus package.

In demanding the members vote in-person, Massie accomplished something very rare in Washington, DC: bi-partisanship.  Everyone hated him. Both sides of the aisle.

President Trump called him a “third-rate grandstander” and expressed the hope that he would not only lose his congressional seat but be kicked out of the Republican Party.

In retweeting Trump, Former Secretary of State John Kerry said Massie was something that he and Trump could finally agree on.

“Breaking News: Congressman Massie has tested positive for being an asshole. He must be quarantined to prevent the spread of his massive stupidity,” Kerry said.

As for Cheney, her office didn’t offer much when asked about the $2,500 donation. Perhaps the donation said it all.

“She agrees with President Trump on this,” a spokesperson said.
