Dick Cheney set to headline Trump 2020 fundraiser in Wyoming on Monday

When U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney appears Monday at a fundraiser for President Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign in her home state of Wyoming, she’ll be joined by someone else who knows his way around Washington.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney, the congresswoman’s father, is set to headline the luncheon event in Jackson, the Washington Post reported Saturday.

Also set to appear are presidential advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, and White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney – although they are listed as “special guests” because of federal rules prohibiting administration officials from campaigning, the Post reported.

REPUBLICANS RAISE $20.7M IN JUNE — MORE THAN DOUBLE DEMS’ $8.5M HAUL

Former VP Cheney, 78, served under former President George W. Bush and was previously defense secretary under President George H.W. Bush after representing Wyoming in Congress. He also served as White House chief of staff under President Gerald Ford.

While Cheney has been a supporter of President Trump, he hasn’t shied away from speaking out when he disagrees with the commander-in-chief.

In March, at the American Enterprise Institute’s World Forum in Sea Isle, Ga., Cheney criticized Trump’s use of Twitter for making major policy announcements and also what he viewed as the president’s on-again, off-again support for NATO, Politico reported.

Cheney also questioned whether Trump valued the work of the U.S. intelligence community, according to the report.

His views reportedly were shared during a conversation with Vice President Mike Pence that was part of the forum attended by about 200 Republicans.

In May, many Democrats got upset when a 2015 video resurfaced, showing former Vice President Joe Biden saying he was fond of Cheney.

“First of all, I really like Dick Cheney, for real. I get on with him, I think he’s a decent man,” Biden, now the Democrats’ 2020 presidential frontrunner, said in the October 2015 video at an event honoring former Vice President Walter Mondale.

Other Republicans expected at Monday’s event in Wyoming include RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, Co-Chairman Tommy Hicks Jr., National Finance Chairman Todd Ricketts and Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Pascale, the Washington Examiner reported.

Wyoming doctor struck by lightning didn’t know he had broken nose, jaw until days later

A doctor in Wyoming who drove through a storm to pick his son up at the airport didn’t realize he had been struck by lightning until two days later, when he finally went to the hospital for growing pain in his face and chest.

“I saw a big flash of light,” Paul Beaupre, who was walking in search of his car at the airport terminal, told the Jackson Hole News & Guide. “The next thing I knew I woke up face-planted on the asphalt.”

MAN SAID VAPE PEN EXPLODED ‘LIKE A ROCKET,’ LEFT HIM WITH SEVERE LEG BURNS

But because nobody came to help, Beaupre figured his injuries weren’t severe enough to warrant medical attention, and he got in his car and drove to the other airport. He then celebrated the Fourth of July with family and friends before heading to the hospital the next day, according to the news outlet.

He was determined to have a broken nose, jaw and three broken ribs, and when staff saw his creatine-kinase levels were high, they figured out that he had been struck by lightning.

Beaupre, who has since returned to treating patients of his own, said he had heard thunder and seen lightning, but nothing striking close by before he was hit.

Lightning is a major cause of storm-related deaths in the U.S., as it can result in cardiac arrest, according to the National Weather Service. Over the last 10 years the U.S. has seen an average of 27 reported lightning fatalities each year, but only about 10 percent of people who are struck are killed.

Colorado sheriff’s office bloodhound helps find missing 12-year-old girl in Wyoming

A Colorado police dog turned out to be in the right place at exactly the right time last week, helping to locate a missing 12-year-old girl in Wyoming, according to officials.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook that Deputy K. Fosler and bloodhound Jessie were in Wyoming on an unrelated call when they were diverted for a request with the search of a missing girl.

Brianna Weinart was reported missing around 10 p.m. on Monday, according to the Casper Star-Tribune.

The deputy and Jessie joined in the search for their girl, but the nearly 90-degree heat required the dog to take a 20-minute break in spite of wearing a cooling vest. The cactus-dense area also made search efforts more difficult, according to the sheriff’s office.

“For nearly two hours, she searched the Wyoming area where the 12-year-old girl was last seen……and then she pulled her handler, Deputy Fosler, back toward the direction they started. Deputy Fosler thought she had lost the scent,” police said. “Turns out, she knew exactly where she was going and as the pair got closer to a home, Jessie went around to the back and near a large bush, they spotted the girl, hiding.”

Weinart was hungry, dehydrated and sunburned after 20 hours, but was “otherwise uninjured,” according to the sheriff’s office.

“This is one of those stories we’re glad to share with the public because it goes to our core mission of Protect, Serve, Enforce,” police said. “We’re thankful this young girl is going to be OK, and we’re thankful Deputy Fosler and K9 Jessie were in Wyoming and able to respond to help another agency and this family.”

‘It’s sickening’: Liz Cheney slams Democratic leaders for defense of Tlaib’s Holocaust remark

Westlake Legal Group omar_tlaib_sbs 'It's sickening': Liz Cheney slams Democratic leaders for defense of Tlaib's Holocaust remark fox-news/us/us-regions/west/wyoming fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/minnesota fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/elections/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox news fnc/politics fnc bdf54487-54e1-5c73-8b30-21db4ef87882 Barnini Chakraborty article

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming sounded off Tuesday on her Democratic colleagues in Congress, accusing them of being anti-Semitic by not condemning comments by Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

“We have a situation today where those of us who are elected officials and particularly elected officials in the House of Representative where this anti-Semitism is rising within our body have an obligation to stand up and to stop it,” Cheney said on “Fox & Friends.”

She also took House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer to task over their recent demand for an apology from Republicans and President Trump for allegedly twisting Tlaib’s words to create controversy.

“I’m sorry that there are so many anti-Semitic members of the House Democratic caucus,” Cheney said on “Fox & Friends.” “We went yesterday from a situation where the Democratic leadership in the House had sort of been enabling this anti-Semitism by their silence. Yesterday was different.”

RASHIDA TLAIB SLAMMED BY HOUSE GOP OVER COMMENTS ON HOLOCAUST, PALESTINIANS

On Monday, Omar accused Cheney of “deep seated hate and Islamophobia” after Cheney condemned Tlaib’s comments on Israel and the Holocaust.

Cheney slammed Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to Congress, for making allegedly false remarks critical of Israel.

“Here’s @RepRashida direct quote, ‘There’s a calming feeling I always tell folks when I think of the Holocaust.’ And her ‘history’ of what happened after is a fantasy based on lies spread to delegitimize the state of Israel,” Cheney tweeted.

Omar responded, “Give it up, we all know you never met a Muslim you didn’t want to vilify!,” Omar said. “Your deep seeded hate and Islamophobia might be a tool to rally your base, but won’t get rid your colleagues. You just have to deal.”

Instead of calling out their colleagues as Republicans demanded, the House Democratic leadership defended Omar and Tlaib.

“If you read Rep. Tlaib’s comments, it is clear that President Trump and Congressional Republicans are taking them out of context,” Hoyer told The Hill. “They must stop, and they owe her an apology.”

Pelosi also weighed in and called for Trump and Tlaib’s critics to apologize.

“Republicans’ desperate attempts to smear @RepRashida & misrepresent her comments are outrageous,” Pelosi tweeted. “President @realDonaldTrump & House GOP should apologize to Rep. Tlaib & the American people for their gross misrepresentations.”

That didn’t sit well with Cheney who told Fox News, “There is just no context in which it is okay to say that a calming feeling comes over you when you think about the Holocaust. It’s sickening.”

A man who applied for a job at a store in Wyoming allegedly stole from the shop twice on the same day, according to investigators.

The unidentified 36-year-old man visited Sportsman’s Warehouse in Gillette on Friday and bought some items with a rewards card, but did not pay for a pair of sunglasses and ammunition while he was there, the Gillette News Record reported.

Police were notified of theft at the store. Three hours later, they were called again after the suspect again visited the location — this time, to ask for a job application.

The man allegedly left the store after that encounter with two more pairs of sunglasses, according to the news outlet.
