I opposed Trump during the 2016 primaries because of my conservative principles. Why? I thought he would violate them. Almost all of them. I thought Trump was a lefty who would pull a Schwarzenegger on us as soon as pressure was applied. I voted for Trump in the 2016 general election, because of the alternative, […]

Okay, there’s been a lotta Liz Cheney back and forth lo these last few days. Some fer, some agin’. A lot of Ricochet rancor back and forth in the comments. People getting all riled. But I want to take this outside the universe we live in, to a parallel world, much like our own., but […]

Just in Case You Forgot…


Liz Cheney reminds us once again that she literally sacrificed everything to save America from being made great again because she’s just like Abraham Lincoln.

Two years ago, I won with 73% of the vote. I could easily have done so again. But it would have required that I go along with Trump’s lies about the 2020 election. That was a path I would not take. No House seat is more important than the principles we are all sworn to protect.

Liz Cheney and the Death of the “Expert”


Let me begin by congratulating Harriet Hageman for her victory yesterday. I hope she wins in November and represents Wyoming and America well during her tenure in Congress.

The best thing to come out of our two years with COVID is a general and growing skepticism of “experts.” We’ve been lied to, ineptly led, treated like children, ignored, censored, and told what’s good for us by people who think they know better than we do what’s good for us.

Join Jim and Greg as they assess Rep. Liz Cheney getting trounced in the Wyoming congressional primary, her odd Lincoln reference in her speech last night, and whether she is really planning to run for president in 2024. They also shake their heads as the political left and their media allies drop the bogus talking point that their massive spending bill reduces inflation and admit it’s just advancing their big government goals on climate policy and more. And they hammer Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser for continuing to demand that all students be vaccinated for COVID before being allowed in schools when up to 40 percent of black students remain unvaccinated.

Checking in on Pierre and Liz


Senator Pierre Delecto is chagrined that Republicans like Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz are forcing Democrats to defend light sentences for pedophiles.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) reportedly believes it is “off course” for Republicans to attack Biden Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson for giving out lenient sentences to those in possession of child pornography.

RINOS Surround and Protect a Wounded Member of the Herd


A Who’s-Whom of Bush-Republicans is holding a fundraiser to help Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney fend off a primary challenge from a conservative challenger who will vote the same as Cheney but probably won’t sign onto one of Nancy Pelosi’s January 6th Show Trials. The fundraiser will be held in Cheney’s hometown of Jackson Hole, WY, McLean, VA, and will feature Utah Senator Pierre Delecto. The guest list is an epic networking opportunity of globalists, neoconservatives, and people who still think the War in Afghanistan was a good idea.

Expected to attend are former Oklahoma Sen. Don Nickles, former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, former Dick Cheney aide Scooter Libby, former presidential candidate and ex-Hewlett-Packard executive Carly Fiorina, former Solicitor General Ted Olson, conservative lawyer Miguel Estrada and former Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey, who served under Romney when he was governor of the Bay State.

Hemingway: Liz Cheney Weaponizes Jan. 6 Committee Against Primary Opponent


I begin to think the Bush-Republicans are actually worse than their Rockefeller-Republican predecessors. The Rockies openly admitted their liberalism; the Bushies spout conservative rhetoric while doing everything they can to advance the Democrat agenda, and make money for themselves in the process. Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney not only eagerly signed onto Nancy Pelosi’s January 6th Inquisition, but she is now apparently leveraging the Committee’s Subpoena Power to harass her primary opponent. (From: The Federalist)

On Tuesday, the committee on which Cheney serves as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hand-picked vice chair unveiled subpoenas for three advisers to the Trump family. Andrew Surabian and Arthur Schwartz, who’ve advised Donald Trump Jr., and Ross Worthington, who played a role in drafting President Donald Trump’s speech on Jan. 6, were each called to hand over documents and testify before the committee between Jan. 31 and Feb. 2.

Here’s a Fun Idea


New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman (not to be confused with the NYTimes columnist who wants to be Governor of Oregon because he thinks the current governor isn’t left-wing enough) thinks Biden should pick Liz Cheney as his running mate in 2024.

His rationale … I am not making this up… is because Israel is a parliamentary democracy and Orange Man Bad, and therefore, combining a president with a 28% approval rating with a vice president so consumed with hatred for the previous president that her own party has rejected her will unite the country and save democracy.

It’s Time for Liz Cheney to Go


House Republicans kept Liz Cheney in her leadership role by a secret vote in February. If there’s a vote in May, she won’t be so lucky.

The Wyoming representative angered many in the base when she joined nine other Republicans to impeach President Donald Trump for his role in the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol. As House Republican Conference chair, she holds the third-highest position in minority leadership. Trump supporters found it a betrayal of their party.

Cheney avoided removal with a 145-61 vote in her favor. Anyone with a hint of political acumen or leadership instincts would start mending fences, uniting the caucus, and moving forward. Cheney chose the opposite.

Join Jim and Greg as they enjoy watching the Dems’ case for killing the filibuster wither away. They also discuss the House GOP fight over Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney and the impact it’s having on the party. And they shake their heads as Brookline, Massachusetts, insists on requiring masks outside despite he CDC easing those restrictions.

Join Jim and Greg as they cautiously welcome the new shifting of congressional seats based upon the 2020 U.S. Census and the opportunity for Republicans to win a House majority. They also roll their eyes as John Kerry denies telling Iran’s foreign minister about covert Israeli operations in Syria while former Obama official Ben Rhodes comes up with a completely contradictory defense of Kerry’s actions.  And they sigh as Rep. Liz Cheney says she hasn’t decided one way or another on a 2024 presidential bid.
