Liz Cheney to abandon Senate bid
CNN, by John King & Peter Hamby

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/5/2014 11:59:43 PM

New York - Liz Cheney, whose upstart bid to unseat Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi sparked a round of warfare in the Republican Party and even within her own family, is dropping out of the Senate primary, sources told CNN late Sunday. Cheney, the eldest daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, began telling associates of her decision over the weekend and could make an official announcement about the race as early as Monday. Cheney´s surprising decision to jump into the race, an announcement made in a YouTube video last summer, roiled Republican politics in the Wyoming, a state Dick Cheney represented in Congress for five

Well, I´m sorry about it, but perhaps she´ll make a bigger difference in another role. I like her.

She should challenge Lindsy Graham. She would win in a landslide.

Definitely Wyoming´s loss. What her sister said publicly was such a betrayal, I think Liz´ campaign was never the same afterwards. I was filled with admiration for her father as he publicly, clearly stood behind his daughter. Liz is very very bright and just what America needs in elected office. This is not the end. When God closes one door, He always opens a window. I know I am remembering that line from The Sound of Music but it´s still true. God bless you, Liz Cheney.

Disappointed to hear she plans to drop out of the race. She is her own person and would have been an asset to Cruz and Lee. Enzi is going for his 4th term......which will end with 24 years.....too long!
He and the rest who have been in DC forever need to retire.....do you hear me, McCain?

The establishment is targeting Mike Lee in Utah......we need to speak up loudly in his behalf.

The biggest challenge will be getting rid of Cornyn.......Will Stockman be able to do the deed and win?

I think the republican party prefers being quiet in their opposition to gay marriage.This primary would have ended up being a food fight about it eventually. and I think Liz would rather drop out than be at odds with her own family.

The to-do with her sister didn´t help, but Liz Cheney dropped out because Wyoming voters saw no reason to replace Enzi, even with Liz Cheney.

The Politico report on this says that Cheney is dropping out because of "serious health issues" within the family. Cheney is quoted as saying that the health and well-being of her children is more important to her than anything else.

I hope this is not as bad as it sounds. I like her and wish her and her family all the best, though I always thought this campaign against a conservtive and very popular senator was misguided.

How in the world is good conservative Mike Enzi somehow a tool of "Rove and the elite republican(sic) establishment"? If Enzi is much-loved by his constituents, why go after him? And I have seen nothing to indicate that Liz Cheney was targeted by those you mention.

Enzi voted more conservatively than Liz ever would have. It was a terrible decision on her part to move to WY and challenge him.

She should have run, starting at the Congressional level, in her real state of VA, where her real politics would have been a match with the voters.

I also hope it´s nothing serious. I think she made a wise decision. Campaigning in a state like Wyoming means long days on the road banging your head against the wall trying to turn a dozen or so voters a stop. It takes a toll on the candidate and the family. The Cheney´s are a well-loved and admired family. She´ll find another spot to run, a better fit.

This is such a shame. I have always liked and admired Liz Cheney, but even I lost respect for her (and her parents) in what certainly looked like carpet-bagging, going after a Republican she and her parents all endorsed and who has been a truly decent representative, simply because he was in the way. Unfortunately, this whole thing may go some way toward silencing (or diminishing) her views on real issues. She was always a very intelligent and ethical force on television, and that may disappear now.

It would take a lot more than just her to change the Republican party back to a party for the people and get rid of all the elitist. They were out with their sharp swords. I am glad she gave it up as the right would have started smearing her shortly. She is the type of person that would have tried to stop all the free money the elites get going to Washington. Neither the left or right would want that. If she won she would only be one of four with the best interest of the country in her mind and heart.

The Virginian was getting no traction because the Conservatives in Wyoming weren´t fooled by her sudden love for a state she had barely been in. Her campaign ran some pretty nasty ads against Mike Enzi and while she pandered to the Tea Party voters, as far as I know, she never got their support.

Don´t know if her stated reasons are true or not but I can see that she figured it was time to cut her losses and high tail it back to Virginia

Liz Cheney has a credible reason to drop out of the race. There is no basis to not believe her. See post 30. As for Senator Enzi, he is a pretty good conservative, who became more conservative after Liz Cheney challenged him, which is a net gain for him and for Wyoming. A few years ago, Senator Enzi received low ratings on immigration from Numbers USA. His recent rating is 95 percent. On immigration votes, he apparently responded to complaints from constituents.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

The Pasteur Institute in Paris, France announced this week that it realized it was missing the vials and contacted the country’s National Security Agency of Medicines and Health Products to conduct an investigation on April 8, according to a news release.

Cities and counties won’t be allowed to raise the minimum wage under a law signed Monday by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R). Under the new law, which passed the state legislature on party-line votes earlier this year, cities would be prohibited from raising the minimum wage above the $7.25 federal mark, and they would be prevented from requiring employers to provide sick days to their employees. Backers of the new law said differing wages in different cities would be a hardship for businesses. In a statement, Fallin said different wage laws would hurt job creation.

Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

An orange-black ribbon holds

As pro-Russia protests spread in eastern Ukraine, a strip of striped orange-and-black fabric has become as ubiquitous as the armed men in unmarked military fatigues. Its name is the Ribbon of Saint George. Imbued with history, it’s a powerful symbol in the ongoing information battle over Ukraine. For Russians it´s a mark of allegiance to the state – both the fearsome, expansionist Russian state of old and its modern successor under President Vladimir Putin. When pro-Russia rallies took place last December, seeking to rival the Maidan demonstrations in Kiev, very few ribbons were seen.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
