'Taco Tuesday' trademark tiff flares anew between fast food competitors
"There is a trademark tiff over taco Tuesday. Taco Bell says it wants to liberate taco Tuesday for all. It is asking the patent and trademark office to force Wyoming based taco John's to abandon its long-standing claim to the trademark taco Tuesday in the filing, Taco Bell says to deprive anyone of saying taco Tuesday via Taco Bell or anyone who provides tacos to the world is like depriving the world of sunshine itself. Taco John's has about 370 locations in 23 mainly Midwestern and western states. It has strongly enforced taco Tuesday as its trademark, sending a letter to a brewery just 5 blocks from its corporate headquarters, warning it to stop using taco Tuesday to promote a taco truck parked outside on Tuesdays.

Biden proposal would let conservationists lease public land much as drillers and ranchers do
"The Biden administration is proposing that conservationists be allowed to lease public land. Tracy stone Manning, the head of the U.S. bureau of land management, says the administration proposal would make conservation and equal priority, conservation groups or others would be allowed to buy leases to restore government land just as oil companies by leases to drill or ranchers lease range land for grazing. It's happened before on a limited basis, but there has been no dedicated program for it. The idea is stirring debate over the best use of millions of acres of taxpayer owned property in the west, some Republican lawmakers attacked the idea as a backdoor way to shut out mining energy and agricultural interests. Senator John barrasso, a Wyoming Republican, attacked the proposed rule as making non

We Need Regulatory Clarity to Keep Crypto Exchanges Onshore...
"Today's featured stories and opinion piece from Jack soloway and Jennifer Schultz. Mister soloway is a policy analyst at kato's institute center for monetary and financial alternatives while miss Schultz is the director of financial regulation studies at the same institute. Our piece today is entitled, we need regulatory clarity to keep crypto exchanges onshore and DeFi permissionless. At consensus 2023, senator Cynthia lummis, a Republican from Wyoming, and congressman Patrick mchenry, a Republican from North Carolina, voiced their goals of developing legislation to clarify crypto market structure in the united states, with a house proposal expected in the next two months. Last week, in a joint hearing of the digital asset subcommittee of the House agriculture and House financial services committees, work proceeds to resolve what congressman French hill, a Republican from Arizona, has referred to as an impossible situation where the same firms are subject to competing enforcement actions by the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, and the commodity futures trading commission or CFTC, which is in their words, pushing entrepreneurs, developers, and job creators offshore. This is an impossible situation, and it's manifestly unwise for the U.S. to show the door to those working on what may be the next generation of global financial infrastructure. Congress must bring regulatory clarity to crypto market structure, defining the bounds and appropriate legal treatment of crypto securities, crypto commodities, and the exchanges, both centralized and decentralized over which they trade. Notwithstanding the skepticism and evasions of SEC chair Gary gensler, crypto's core innovation decentralization is the proper criterion by which to rationalize digital asset market structure and determine whether applying traditional financial regulations to crypto tokens in exchanges make sense. The phrase, same activity, same risk, same regulation, is oft repeated by financial regulators. But as applied to crypto, it raises the question, are the risks the same. Specifically, do crypto projects present the risks that issuers in the primary market or intermediaries in the secondary market can exploit their position to harm token purchasers by, for example, abusing non public information, misleading market participants, breaking promises, or otherwise engaging in fraud.

Advancing Global Crypto Innovation With Sheila Warren
"It was just about three years ago that our guest today was last on the show, and at that time she was the head of blockchain for the World Economic Forum, where she occasionally interface with the clause Schwab, it's a bugs and you will be happy and she is now with the crypto council for innovation. She is the CEO and her name is still, Sheila Warren, Sheila, welcome back to the show. Thanks so much for having me and Joel and Travis. You've idea of eating the bugs? No? The time had come for a change and been almost 5 years and I really wanted to be in a place where I could always say what I truly, truly thought, which as you know, I didn't really hesitate to do at the forum. I got a long leash there, but I wanted to be more of an advocate that I felt I was able to be in an organization that was that's objective. That's actually officially objective. Very nice. Yeah, so now. So this is cool. So you have to was a crypto for innovation dot org. Crypto counsel for innovation is crypto counsel dot org. Same Twitter handle as I always had at Sheila underscore Warren. But yeah, I've been in this role now for a little over a year. And we are an evidence based advocacy organization that's focusing on trying to get sound crypto policy around the world. I mean, really. So it isn't really that different, I think, from what my goals were in previous roles, even predating the forum, just trying to get responsible policy in place. But the strategy I can use now is obviously very different. Do you feel like your hands were somewhat tied with the WF, where, you know, because what you're trying to do is you're trying to eat an elephant, right? You're monitoring and changing policy all around the world. You're not just like Caitlin long and saying, all right, let's do Wyoming. Let's go everywhere. And so this is far for you more freedom and liberty to do what you want to do. You know, yes and no, right? 'cause I think here the connections that so that's a really interesting question I love that you asked that. So the answer is always complicated and I'm a lawyer by training so you don't ever get to give you a yes or no answer. But it is yes and no. It's yes from the standpoint of I truly believe that crypto governance, crypto economics, the blockchain, are all going to underlie most of our systems moving forward. But I think the connection with other systems is actually even more important now than it ever was.

Colorado offers safe haven for abortion, transgender care
"Colorado is offering a safe haven for abortion and transgender care. I'm Lisa dwyer. A trio of healthcare bills enshrining access to abortion and gender affirming procedures and medications have become law in Colorado, as the Democrat led state tries to make itself a safe haven for people from states where Republican leaders have restricted care. The main goal of the legislation signed by Colorado's democratic governor is to ensure people in surrounding states and beyond can go to Colorado to have an abortion began puberty blockers or receive gender affirming surgery without fear of prosecution. Bordering states of Wyoming and Oklahoma have passed abortion bans and Utah has severely restricted transgender care for minors.

New law puts Wyoming at forefront of abortion pill bans
"Wyoming has instituted the nation's first explicit ban on abortion pills. Medication abortions which usually involve taking two prescription drugs days apart to terminate a pregnancy are effectively banned in more than a dozen states that prohibit all forms of abortion and 15 states restrict access to the pills, but Wyoming is the first state to specifically ban abortion pills, Republican governor Mark Gordon signed the legislation into law Friday, and it takes effect July 1st, but could be delayed in the courts of a lawsuit as filed.

"Wyoming becomes the latest state to ban pills for abortion. Wyoming's Republican governor Mark Gordon has signed a bill that prohibits medication abortions in the state that ban takes effect in July, barring any legal challenge that might block it. He's also allowing a separate measure restricting abortion to become law without his signature, expecting a court fight. 13 states have already banned abortion pills and 15 have limited access, like requiring an in person doctor visit.

California may get slammed by brutal storm front sweeping US
"This fierce winter storm blanketing much of the country is trapped some drivers on snow covered roads and stranded air travelers at airports. It's a brutal winter storm causing power outages to hundreds of thousands in Michigan, closing roads in Wyoming, and dumping heavier snow than expected in Portland, Oregon, where this driver tells K PTV he had to go pick up a relative. She's on the 26th, stuck cars were going nowhere. She's going to have to pull over, leave her car. A blizzard warning has been issued for the Southern California mountains, something that hasn't happened since 1989. The national weather service has damaging winds, heavy mountain snow, and dangerous waves are all untapped. In Wisconsin, this driver tells W KO WTB. It was horrendous. He had to get home from Green Bay to lacrosse. You couldn't see the lines on the road. People are affected from Arizona to Michigan, and now that storm is heading toward the east coast.

Is Custodia a Sacrificial Lamb to the Fed's War on Crypto Banking?
"All right, so yesterday we closed the show on a fiery statement from kraken's Jesse Powell. I'm going to reread that tweet now. Jesse writes, I have a theory regulators let the bad guys get big and blow up because it serves their agenda. One destroy capital and resources in the crypto ecosystem. Two burn people in deter adoption, three give air cover to attack good actors. The bad guys are actually on side. Good guys are the enemy. If the bad guys can run long enough without blowing up, they might just kill the good guys for you. Bad guys operate with huge competitive advantages. They suck up users. Revenue, and venture capital that would have otherwise gone to good guys. Bad guys can always be jailed later. So today I want to dig a little bit more into what prompted this particular statement. And to do that, we need to talk about custodia bank. Custodia bank is a special purpose depository institution or SPDI in Wyoming. And has long had ambition to be a very different type of full reserve bank. The bank was originally called avanti and it was started by Caitlin long a few years ago. Now for much of its life it's been going through an onerous process to become part of the Federal Reserve system and get access to a Federal Reserve master account. A master account would give the ability to access wholesale payment systems from the fed without needing another bank as an intermediary. This is obviously hugely important to the development of the business model that they ultimately wanted to be in. Well, custodia was left waiting so long that last June they filed suit against the Federal Reserve, saying that it was unlawfully delaying their application. Custodia claimed that the fed's own paperwork says that a master account decision ordinarily takes 5 to 7 days. Meanwhile, by making custodial wait 19 months, the fed had quote clearly violated its one year statutory deadline. Still, another half year passed before the fed finally issued his decision. On January 27th of this year, of course, a couple months after the FTX collapse, the Federal Reserve announced their denial of custodial application to become part of the Federal Reserve system.

Air Force will review cancer among personnel who worked close to nation's ground-based warheads
"The air force is expanding its review of cancers among the nation's nuclear missile personnel. They're called missileers, the airmen who launch nuclear warheads from underground silos and command centers. Space Force reported last month 9 officers who worked as missiles at a Montana air base were diagnosed with non Hodgkin lymphoma. Since then, more missiles and support crew have said they too had been diagnosed with the same or other types of cancers. The air force will now review the entire ground based nuclear missile corps at three bases in Montana, North Dakota and Wyoming to include environmental factors at the bases and silos.

The Great Migration Away From New York and California
"California. And you're living part of this. Discussion. James, California, I want to put this out there, California has led the nation and loses 700,000 residents in the last two years. California exodus has shown no sign of slowing down. As a state population dropped by half a million between, I mean, think about this. That's almost, I mean, just under just below the population of like Wyoming. Don't you think about that for a second? That's absolutely the same before you continue because I haven't read this article, so I'm just curious. Does it give major reasons for leaving? Because I'm assuming one of them is how expensive California is. But I also feel like it's like, I don't even know, there are people that just want to have like a more relaxed atmosphere in their life. And I know we discussed this, but you could say where the two places are that everyone's going. Oh yeah, well, let me also say this though. And then I'm going to give California just a tiny bit of credit here. Their population decrease was second second only to guess who. New York City? New York. Everyone get out of there, pandemic style, baby. And it's not good. Primary reasons you asked about it, the primary reasons a high cost of living and the long commutes, the crowds, the crime, the pollution, and larger urban centers, and just New York. So the exact same reasons people leave in New York. I mean, when they, I know that you've lived in the south your entire life, right? Oh yeah. So you know that the cost of living in the south is so much different than the cost of living in the north end on the West Coast, right?

"Opportunity for people for God to lay it on their heart for them to give to something like this, just meant the world to us. It really, really touched their hearts. And then to come out there and experience as a kid, my dream was always to move to Montana or Wyoming and live there because I always thought it was beautiful in the pictures and why did this face and she said she could go to the doctor to visit Wyoming was amazing. It's more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. And then to do that together the three of us and then I have the opportunity to go out and shoot a bull Elk was just it's hard to put into words to experience it out from the second day where he went out at first and get the opportunity to try and sneak up for one. I don't know if terminology, but just sneak up on one and to experience that was really neat. And then for the whole athlete too far away and then the second time to have to stalk it so far, we walked so far and up and down and that was amazing. And then when he wouldn't have the opportunity to shoot that one, I just knew I told him I was like, it's all right, you know? It just means God got something better for you. We just had to be patient. It's all in God's time. To see him, to be able to shoot that to experience that all together and experience that with Blake was just absolutely amazing to see the excitement and the journaling and see Blake appreciate it just as much as we did really touched our hearts for his excitement and his joy to experience that with us and experience that we saw and how he invested in solar's life while we were up there was just really just such a blessing. I mean, it's something that we will never forget and I will treasure it forever in my heart and I think I took a million pictures. While we were there, they kept laughing and making fun of me, but everything I'm like, it's just so beautiful. I don't want to forget a thing. I want to be able to look back at all this and remember all of it every second of it. I would say it's probably one of the most humble and experiences that we've ever had. It's coming out there just the way the God orchestrated everything and when you're pulling the trigger, I can't help but I just want to cry. We were just so thankful and blessed. It's basically said that it's always been a dream to be able to go on a space for a lot of challenges in the last couple of years and put a foundation and effort Blake and shallow and putting all this together at a data difference that will happen for the rest of our lives and the memories are just memories will always have. It wasn't. Shooting the help. It was the whole experience being able to come out now to Wyoming and just being there with sorry. Sorry not hunt together a lot. We'd love to both hunt and stuff like that. But this is something I never thought we'd be able to experience and to be able to come out to Wyoming to see how beautiful it is there to have this experience and it was just such a blessing and I don't even know how to begin to think everyone who put this together and blank's one of the most amazing men I've ever met in my life and we're just blushed to give them. I think the whole the whole journey, the whole trip, every second of it, not just the hunt and seeing him be able to shoot such an amazing Elk and talking after it and all that, not just that part, but every second since we got up in the morning so we went to that night spending time with Blake and Shiloh and everybody else that was there. I think every second of it is what made the trip. So amazing. You guys have touched on it in our society, everybody looks at this trophy hunting trophy photos in a negative connotation negative light. Well, once the meat's all gone, which high mountain seasoning and meat is a number one at our place, right? We eat. We eat Elk, that's what my kids are raised on. But once the meat's gone, it's kind of the trophy, but even you look a generation down the road. Once that trophy is gone, I mean, it might be in a museum, it might be dog chew. It doesn't matter. What's left is that trophy photo and the people in the memory of that trip and how much fun they had together in the camaraderie. So, you know, that trophy photo that a lot of people shame on social media of, oh, you're just whatever. It's more than that. It's the whole essence of why we do this is that camaraderie, that bonding, that relationship, and we want to memorize that forever. You want to capture that moment and take it home with you so you never forget. Definitely. You made a good comment about Blake. He's a good guy. And he does this because he truly loves people and he loves sharing what his passion is, which is hunting with other people. And so I don't know, Blake, if you can kind of talk about that on your end of this because you have the pressure of delivering, right? You want to make sure that they have a good experience that they harvest what they came to Wyoming to harvest, but can you talk a little bit about this experience with this family? Oh, absolutely. I mean, not just these guys, but all the kids that I've done in the past and I also do disabled veterans, but one of the questions I get asked so many times mainly by guys kind of in the hunting community is, why don't you do this for a living? Why don't you work for an outfit or start your own guiding business and make a living at hunting doing the same thing you're doing now but making money so you can provide. When you put money into this game, it just completely changes it and the biggest things for me is the best way I can describe this is a chapter in the Bible. Mark chapter two, a group of friends carries a man on a mat to get to Jesus to heal this man because he's paralyzed. And there's a crowd surrounding Jesus so they can't get to him. So they go up onto the roof, they dig a hole and they drop this man right in front of Jesus. Jesus seeing their faith, the faith of the Friends, he told the man your sins are forgiven. Stand up and walk. Jesus didn't heal the paralyzed man because of what he did or the good things you've done or seeing the face even of that man. He healed the man based on the faith of the guys that dropped him down the hole. And you know, you have that saying of an average of your 5 closest friends. And not just your friends. I think it's the 5 people you spend the most time with because I have a lot of friends all over the world that I don't get to see very often, but you're an average of the 5 closest people you surround yourself with. And who you surround yourself with matters, obviously because you need to have those type of people that you can count on that would drop you down that hole. But at the same point of that, you also have to be that friend. You have to be the friend that will carry your friend on the map that's paralyzed and drop him through the hole. And like I said, that's the best way I can describe these hunts. They're not comfortable at any at any point. But I feel like comfort is killing our callings. If you go towards comfort, it's killing our callings of what we're called to do through Christ and doing these hunts. Yes, they take a lot of time. They take a lot of money, but at the same time, these hunts are the ones that I feel like I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing. And I think if I went a different route and was doing it for the money aspect of things, it just wouldn't feel the same. Yeah. I think that makes a lot of sense. And it comes from your heart, right? You've got a heart for this and you've got a heart for the people that you take out and it comes through every time I talk to you about it because absolutely. You're passionate about that and no, I agree. I think that's a great story to kind of use as a parallel with what you're doing because you're making a sacrifice, right? You're taking time. You're a hardworking man. I know that. You spend a lot of time farming and ranching and you put your blood sweat and tears into that. But you also put a ton of work into this and you don't ask for anything. You know, you just want these people to have that wonderful experience and experience with quite frankly, the three of us gets a kind of take for granted. You know, we live in

"Well, hello and welcome to another episode of rag cast outdoors. I'm Patrick Edwards. I'm David Merrill. Welcome back to the studio. Everybody. It's good to have our buddy Blake back in here for I think this is the third time. This is the third time. Hopefully third time's a charm, right? Third time is a charm, man. Keep twisting his arm. So the first time we were at county ten. Yep. Last time we just kind of got into the space just over here. Yeah. Next door. And now we have our own studio. Yeah, we're in our own space. How everybody grows. You're just watching the full evolution right cast outdoors, aren't you? Yeah. Yeah, so today, Blake, as you all know, does guiding takes a lot of people out on hunts and has some just incredible stories. If you haven't heard, the one that we did about peanut. Absolutely. Was that a year ago, year and a half, two years ago? That would be two years ago. Two years ago, one 85 meal dear buck in a blizzard. In a blizzard up by Dubois, you'll have to go back and listen to that one. So we do have that one, but I'm going to let Blake take it from here and kind of introduce his guests, these brought on for this season. Yeah, so this year we did a red desert L cunt. It was actually the first one we've done with this particular type of the tag. And Sawyer was the young man that was selected for this hunt. I'm going to let them introduce themselves right now. I'm sorry. Last year. A lot of fun. I'm Shannon Harris. I'm sorry his father. And I'm thankful his mom. Yeah, so we had these guys planned for a is either four or 5 day L cunt in Wyoming based it out of south pass on The Rock shop in hotel, I guess you could call it cabins. That was just a plan as I look over as many, 'cause we could in a day and I like to make these hunts more of an experience rather than about the score or anything like that or being successful. So I have those four days kind of blotched out in first part of October and the goal was to just have as much fun as we could see as many as we could and hopefully get an opportunity to shoot a really good mature bull. And so for those of you listening, the red desert area of Wyoming is a very premium an area for not just Elk, but Pronghorn antelope. Absolutely. And it's aptly named the red desert Blake will know this. I like to go chase Elk in the timber, right? I like to get up closer to the Yellowstone and play with the grizzly bears and find some good Aspen pockets and that's where I grew up hunting Elk. It's how I know how to hunt Elk and driving to work a lot actually over there and find out I drive right by the red desert all the time back and forth. And you look out across the expanse and I'm like, guys are bragging about this unit. And I look at it and I go, there ain't much more than a jackalope and a sagebrush out there and there's not one sagebrush for an Elk to hide behind. Well, here are a couple of years ago a resident of Fremont county drew and he invited me come go along and how many oak did you guys see out in that red desert country? So definitely over 500. Over 500 out in the sagebrush. And it's kind of a surreal feeling too, right? You probably saw not just a lot of Elk, but you probably saw a lot of bulls. And I know that when I see a lot of those below, you get excited. And it's easy to get excited over some that are a little bit smaller, but it sounds like you got a big one. It was just a pretty good size. I'll bet. That's a God bless with a huge joke, but it was so amazing because we got there. We're seeing these bulls that we thought were absolute monsters of just be patient and calm down and wait and he goes because there's bigger bulls out there and I was like, I don't think they could get bigger. Talk a little bit about that Blake because it's hard for the lay person to look at and kind of understand the size of a bull. Yeah, so I mean, I've got quite a few years of experience in the red desert and you kind of get an idea of what the average is and kind of what a guy realistically can be thinking of on harvesting out there. My opinion doesn't match a lot of other people, but going forward I kind of keep that in the back of my mind and I like to keep standards around that level, not just because of the score, but because it actually drags a hunt on a little bit longer. And if we would show up, we could have killed an Elk on his trip ten minutes into legal shooting light or maybe even earlier. Right off the bat, we've got a group of, I don't know, 40, 50 cows and there was one really nice bull in the group and those guys were like, oh my God, that's a big bull. We'll walk away from that one. Not that it wouldn't have been a great bull to harvest, but it's just the fact of it makes the trip go on that much farther. And I'll let these guys kind of tell their story of how many things they got to experience because of that. I mean, yes, we could have killed a 6 point bull out 5 minutes into opening day, but you wouldn't have experienced the whole realm of what was going on. Yeah, so why don't you guys take us through just a little bit of the story, maybe start with, you know, your first impressions of Wyoming coming out here and kind of what it was like and then just tell us a little bit about the hunt. Love to hear it. My first impression was, it was a lot of flattering back on. You can see a long way. And we got there and a shower came to pick us up there for me like, yeah, there's a lot of pronghorns around here, and I was really a little skiing when he was well, you probably wouldn't get run out of the airport in the first 30 seconds, sure enough, there was like 5 of them came to top rope and they're everywhere. I was like, holy cow. And then we were getting out there like each day we were hunting. I mean, we were in the truck and I was like, oh, you know, you know, actually do you want on TV and they talk about how tough it is and all of this to see where I was like, I didn't see what it was doing in person. We were riding down the road 5 minutes, because there's a bull much Gaussian. Things monstrous and he laughed and he was like, nah, now that's not very big. Just wait. And then we got to our other spot where we set up at, and it was just like, there's a bowl, there's a bowl of two fighting down here. There's one bedded up right there. I mean, they're everywhere. So what did you think about the terrain itself? Obviously, you can see forever. But did you look at that and think, yeah, there's probably Elk in there or did you look at it and think, man, there's no way there's Elk out there. Yeah, we're going to take that beat out there, you know? I was kind of like, what do they have? What are the more the go to? Stage bro seems four foot tall and they lay down the disappear. I was not expecting to be out there at all. They caught me off yard. Yeah, and from my experience, being out there, even the spots I find Elk knowing that there's Elk out in the desert, the spots I find them, it seems like it's completely opposite. Like you'll go to some parts of the desert where you got big cuts of canyon and deep sagebrush and feed and you won't find an Elk. And then you go out into this big, flat, wide open stuff with grease wood, and no grass, and there's thousands of them. What are you doing? What is the logic behind where they live out there? And it's just unique. It's a spot that it's challenging for me even. One of the biggest hardest things of it is finding the Elk and out there you can find all day long. But still being able to get close and kill one is they're completely different story. Well, tell us about that first day. What was it like? The initial from sun up and you see, you see these Elk right off the bat. What was it like from there? Just kind of take us through that. We saw the first ones, and he now is just kind of star straps, never seen out before. I thought it was pretty sweet. Let me set up our first glass and spot. We saw a really good one. And I was like, I have to go and he's like, oh, I'll just wait. And I was like, I'm trust this dude, because that's a big one.

California is lone holdout in Colorado River cuts proposal
"6 western states that rely on water from the Colorado River have agreed on the model to dramatically cut water use. But this one major holdout. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. California gets the largest allocation of water from the Colorado, the river and its tributaries wind through 7 states from Wyoming, Utah and Colorado to Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, and into Mexico. Surfing 40 million people and a $5 billion a year agriculture industry. The Clinton canyon and Hoover dams, two mammoth power producers sitting on the river, with gigantic reservoirs behind, like Powell and Lake mead have reached historic lows reflecting the stress on the river amid a more than two decade drought, along with all that demand and consequent overuse. The bureau of reclamation called on the states to propose ways to conserve two to 4 million acre feet of water. They missed the deadline, but have now come up with a plan, California, however, has not signed on, saying it will submit its own model for water reductions. I'm Ben Thomas

"And you couldn't legally get away with that here. And that's why I tolerate the three mule deer doughs that hop in my back fence and eat my grass, right? Great, perfect. They're the public's property. And while they're causing some damage to my private landowner, right status, I can't just go destroy that animal, right? So there's kind of a similarity there. I think I've painted a close picture of I think shed Henning's great. I think el cantle chandeliers are awesome. I think that money goes into conservation one way or another. But, you know, there's some abuse there on another aspect that I've seen that I'm not, and my other side, I'd love to pick up a shed with my three year old and my 9 year old kid, right? And we're not going to hike in the horrible grizzle player infested areas so we're kind of getting on the scratch in the surface. And so I'm going to stick them on a horse and go some places that maybe some people can't get to. Well, Jess is so folks didn't know already or picked this up. Jess is also my significant other. If Jess's mom is out, just going for a stroll in the hills, she's in her upper 60s. I want her to be able to pick up a deer antler and be like, man. This is really cool. This is a great thing to find, you know? And I still want that to be a common thing without it just being like a big deal that a foot race a monetary and this is how I'm going to make my living and exactly. I get there's a balance there and I don't think that we should get to where maybe someday I have a big pile of massive Elk antlers. I've got a little stash in the shed of ones I've picked up hunting or whatever sometimes some skull caps someday I may want to be the hair and I'm going to liquidate these antlers and there were something and I don't want them anymore. And so I don't think we should legislate making any legal to transfer those goods, but it does kind of go against the wildlife conservation model to be able to sell and trades and animal product, right? It'd be interesting. I'm going to put myself in out on the limb here. It'd be interesting to know if you or any of your listeners would be interested in having like a shed license to sell. We have to do that with rocks that you pick up on BLM. If you have to do it with mushrooms over a certain poundage, didn't know if there was any interest in the people of Wyoming. So if you are interested, I'd love it if you got to hold me and just tell me your thoughts because I'm just trying to get a gauge because I don't I know a lot of people have floated the idea. I don't know what the general public thinks of it. I don't know. It's an interesting I never really thought about it. And I'm not opposed one way or another. It's pretty tough to track, right?

"And then hunters are like, well, there's not enough accessible on the public grounds that we can hunt. We need to work on this access issue. And I think you're saying it just comes down to people being able to work together on these things. To find a wildlife management solution that makes sense for everybody. Most of the time, it probably isn't going to make sense for a 100% of the people. But if you can find common ground and get to some good solutions, like you said, in the case of the African example, it's like, look, if we can kill one, that will help keep the balance in place. That is that is good outcome. In Wyoming, we look at this. If you can allow a couple more people to hunt your place so that we can keep the Elk off your property. That is a success because then you get more hunters in access to places where they wouldn't have had access otherwise. And I've seen that example work really, really well with antelope right here in this unit that we're recording in today, right? You've got how far fields everywhere. And an antelope is going to eat, I don't know, four or 5 pounds of alfalfa a day. And when you got 70 of them out there, day in and day out. But they put some dough tags out and the state actually mails you a list of landowners with their phone numbers to call and go get permission from because I don't just want to open the gate to my property here and let anybody know come hunt, right? But if I'm having some depredation issues with some crop damage, yeah, because of course those animals are going to hop the fence and go eat alfalfa instead of sagebrush. Are you going to have T bone steaks? Are you going to have dog food? Yeah. No doubt. They're not stupid.

Gas prices could be bottoming out
"A treat for Christmas at the gas pump. Families traveling by car this holiday season can enjoy much lower gas prices than a year ago. Patrick de Haan is with gas buddy dot com. The national average this morning is up just slightly overnight to three O 9 per gallon. That's still 47 cents a gallon lower than a month ago and prices now 20 cents lower than they were last Christmas. But the price of gas could be turning around. That simply because the price of oil has jumped about $9 a barrel in the last week and a half on optimism that China is starting to reopen its economy. And that's going to boost consumption.

Glenn Greenwald: Your Last Chance to See Liz Cheney Speak
"There's no poll involved in this witch hunt, kangaroo court, Glenn greenwald had a great moment on Twitter yesterday. The journalist took off after Liz Cheney, she's having her big last hurrah, right? Her big, her last big moment in the sun yesterday before she becomes an MSNBC or CNN contributor, and you can be sure that's going to happen because her political career is over. You don't lose by 35 points. After you're an established Republican like she was in Wyoming and then go continue a political career. So Liz Cheney is through with politics. Here is what Glenn greenwald tweeted about her. There was a tweet that said today is the last public hearing of the January 6th select committee trying to stop Trump from running for office. Glenn greenwald tweeted this might be your last chance to see the extraordinary. Heroic, noble, inspiring, high priestess of ethics and democratic values Elizabeth Cheney speak in the August committee rooms of the house. Who would want to miss this? It's a great tweet. And then he followed up with in parentheses for those who missed the news or forgot the reason Liz Cheney is leaving the house is her own constituents voted against her in favor of her primary challenger by more than 35 points, one of the most humiliating defeats a house incumbent has ever suffered in American history.

ANTIFA Mob Engages in Wild Clashes at University of New Mexico
"Had this campus event brought by our turning point USA chapter last night and the police did a great job. They did the best job they could to deal with these what I believe to be professional agitators and paid protesters. What we saw last night is just another example of exactly what happens when you have an entire generation that lacks meaning they're well over a 150 to 200 protesters, many of whom got violent with riot police that were preventing our students from being able to gain entrance into the event. That's right. They were locking arms blocking the door. They deterred at least 50 of our people. It kind of felt almost like voting on election day in Maricopa County. People just turned away and they said, I don't want to deal with it. They said, yeah, I don't want to deal with this. They saw the bedlam and the agitators, the terrorists really is what they are. Their goal was to cancel the event. Their goal was to not allow us to be able to have an event focus on American exceptionalism, the constitution, freedom and liberty. We might say Charlie, why did you pick the university of New Mexico? Well, we had two other events brought to you by our turning point USA chapter at the university of New Mexico, Tommy lahren, and Ian hayworth, that both had their events canceled and disrupted by these people. And strictly out of principle, I get very angry, and you should, too. When students are not allowed to have a conservative event peacefully on an American college campus. I don't care if it's in New Mexico. I don't care if it's in New Haven. I don't care if it's in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This is America. We're not going to put up with this.

So Sammy, when I think about Wyoming, I think of one of the reddest of the red states. I mean, they just kicked out Liz Cheney from her congressional seat for crying out loud. So how did a wind farm? A project of this size for clean energy of all things. How did Wyoming approve it? Yeah, they had to strike deals with 450 private landowners along the route of this line. In addition to environmental reviews for 5 or 6 different federal agencies and I think like 12 or 14 counties and multiple state governments, I mean, this is why it took 15 years to get to this point. A lot of the landowners along the route said great, give me your money and I'll let you cross my land. That's awesome. And others were really unhappy. They were concerned about how it would affect their farmland under their views that the bodak fought tooth and nail did everything they could to prevent billionaire developer, philanthropist from crossing their land with this power line and ultimately he paid them enough money that they said fine we'll do it, but it went to court and they battled over it for a couple of years. It was definitely a process. I mean, there's still in a lot of Wyoming anti wind sentiment. I mean, every year or two someone in the legislature tries to get a law passed to dramatically raise taxes on wind power to try to either kill off the industry or make a lot more money from it, depending on how you look at it. But at the local level, in this county, carbon county where this thing was proposed in a couple of other spots in Wyoming were wind has become a big business. The local government, the city officials and local residents, at first they were freaked out and they said, what's this going to mean for our fossil fuel jobs? What's this going to mean for our landscapes and our ecosystems? They studied it and they started to realize, well, it's fossil fuel jobs have been going away, not just for the last ten years because of climate change, but for the last 30 or 40 years, it's just been getting smaller and smaller. This seems like it could be a new source of revenue for us of tax revenues of property tax revenues. And this is going to create jobs for the people who build these things. It's not going to be the number of jobs if someone who works at a coal plant because the construction jobs are there and then they kind of go away when it's finished being built, but it's something and they work through this and they worked with these companies and eventually they said, okay, this could be helpful for us. So this new win thing is really rocked a lot of boats because for a while there, they were looked at as the enemy. Every watt of power wind farm makes is a lot of power, the fossil fuels is not going to sell. I actually talked with Terry wacom the mayor of Rollins, the town near the ranch where interest is building his wind farm. And what he told me was that when wind developers first came to carbon county that the people they were scared to death, but eventually they came around. The biggest part of having the wind farms take place in our vicinity is taxes. 6% of a few $1 billion is a lot of money. So we educated ourselves and got comfortable with it, just like probably you were scared to death the first time. You got on a bicycle because it could hurt you. But then you found out how to use it. And now you have a wind farm. Other parts of the state may be still see it as scary, but in the places where these things that are being built, there's actually quite a bit of support for it now in red Wyoming. And you've mentioned already a couple of times this guy, Philip and shoots. Who is he? Well, if you ever have been to the former Staples Center, the crypto dot com arena in downtown LA. He owns that. He owns the kings hockey team. He owns the Coachella music festival. He used to own a railroad and the regal cinemas too. He's fabulously wealthy. He's based out of Denver's. He's pretty reclusive. You don't see him out in the headlines a lot. He doesn't talk to the press. He wouldn't talk to me for this story. You know, he's been in oil and gas for a long time. That's how he made his first fortune out in the west. He struck it rich on a good oil strike. And it may seem incongruous to see him becoming this renewable energy baron now in the 21st century, but he owns this big ranch. It's one of the windiest spots in the country. His executive who oversaw this ranch came to him and said, I think we could make a killing here building wind turbines and you know, he's a businessman and conservative politics and oil and gas society. He embraced that and said, great, let's spend billions of dollars and make this happen. And they've already in advance of major construction activity spent hundreds of millions of dollars getting this thing ready to go. They're doing this without a buyer. They don't actually have a confirmed customer for who's going to purchase all of this electricity at the end of the day. They're basically building it on spec. They're really confident that Los Angeles or some other party or parties in California are going to come forward and agree to purchase this stuff when it's ready to go, but it's really unique in that they're doing it without a buyer upfront. Wow, and yeah, I mean, if someone like and shoots is betting on wind energy, they're not doing it for charity. He wants to make money off of it. So she's definitely not a climate activist. If he's doing it, I'm sure then other billionaires are following. Absolutely. I mean, Warren Buffett is building a lot of similar projects in the same part of the country and it's happening elsewhere too. Is there anything besides money that's driving these folks even? Are they saying anything at all about like, yeah, we know we need to have cleaner energy. It's not just about money, but it's about helping the environment. With and should know, I think it's about making money. Wow. The only statements that he's made publicly are about climate change or to the effect of, I know what's happening, but I don't think it's as bad as people say it's going to be. So no, I don't think this is coming from a place of trying to do good because of climate change. It's wind and solar have gotten pretty inexpensive to build relatively speaking. And you can make a lot of money selling them. Just like any other energy source. On the other hand, you do have the municipalities across the American West if not the country saying we do want this clean energy. So it's almost like a symbiotic relationship at that point. It is. I mean, the fact that California has this 100% renewable energy target and Los Angeles as well, that is definitely played a significant role in driving the construction of these types of projects. But like you said, it's become a little bit of a virtuous cycle where that's helped to drive the costs down of the technology and now the technology has gotten so cheap that even in parts of the country where you don't have these strong renewable energy goals that lots and lots of solar and wind is being built and probably the climate bill that just passed Congress is going to accelerate

"Sammy, welcome to times. Happy to be here, Gustavo. Man, when I heard you were doing a story about a huge wind farm for California, I thought, okay, maybe he's going to imperial county down on the U.S. Mexico border or higher up north in Shasta county. I didn't think Wyoming. Yeah, I mean, this is the biggest wind farm that's being proposed and built in the western United States. And the country as well. So if you want to write about wind energy and you want to do it on a big scale, this is the place to go. It actually been to this site once before back in 2016 in the previous reporting job. And that was ten years into their process and now it's 5 years later, 6 years later and they're finally building the things. So I thought, okay, I want to go back and see how things have changed and see the process. No, I'm. Amelia. So basically what we did is we went up to Wyoming to the construction site of what's going to be the biggest wind farm in the United States. And then after I see in the site there, we took a road trip along the route of what's going to be a 730 mile power line to carry all that wind energy to Southern California. The game showed us around up at the wind farm's name was Bill Miller, he's one of the top executives at amstrad square creation, which is the company building that project. How many wind turbines you guys gonna put out here? 600 plus, there aren't many projects that can compete with this on scope or scale. So it's 600 wind turbines spread out across a ranch that is 500 square miles, it's slightly bigger than the city of Los Angeles. It's huge. I spent hours and hours driving around that place that's endless. Yes, we are. It's just the kind of thing that you have to see in person to really appreciate the scale and the sort of grandeur of the place. These rolling hills and these big open countrysides and snow capped mountains in the distance. You just kind of can't believe that somebody is doing something on this scale of trying to build out this place. It really gives you a sense of what was the west like before and what might it be like in the future? One of the reasons this project is such a big deal is because California and Los Angeles have these really strong renewable energy goals. I mean, California has it in law that we've got to be a 100% clean electricity by 2045. Los Angeles is trying to do it ten years earlier by 2035. And it's not that you couldn't do that without Wyoming win, but the studies that have been done that I've seen show that it's certainly easier. So this wind farm then where exactly is it situated in Wyoming and what exactly are the plans for it? So construction is just now getting underway. They haven't actually propped up any of the turbines yet. We're talking southern Wyoming along the I 80 corridor there near a city called Rollins and carbon county, Wyoming, carbon county, by the way, named for fossil fuels. It has a long history of colon oil and gas and now wind is the big thing there. They've been working on getting this thing permitted and built for 15 years, all sorts of environmental reviews, redesigns of the turbines to minimize bird issues that it's been a process, but the goal right now is to have it online in 2025 and power in California. We're all going for, I think, in the end, is going to be a cleaner energy sector. Did you think when you started in 2008 that here in 2022, you'd still be doing this? No. We had no idea it would take this long. The idea is that they're also going to be building not just these hundreds of wind turbines that are frigging giant hundreds of feet tall, but a power line, 730 miles long across four states across parts of Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Nevada to bring this clean electricity all the way to the border with California. Wow. It was really fascinating. I mean, driving the route of this power line that's going to be built. I mean, this thing is going to cross farmlands and branches and beautiful rivers and small towns and national forests and pretty much any western scenery you can imagine this thing is going to bisect it and cut right across. And it's interesting because there's a very strong need for new power lines in order to get to 100% renewable energy not just in California, but across the whole country. It's going to be a whole lot easier to do this with more of these electric lines that bring the renewable energy from where it exists from where they're strong wind from where they're strong sunlight and open land to the big cities that need all this power. California and the desert Southwest, they need a reliable source of power and they need it in large quantities. Sammy, you mentioned that this wind farm is in Wyoming in a part of Wyoming where there's a lot of wind, but how would this wind farm factor in the unpredictability of it? Actually, one of the valuable things about having wind from different places like having wind in state in California and wind from Wyoming or maybe from New Mexico is that the wind blows at different times in different places. In California, maybe you're getting a bunch of wind farms that blow really strong from noon to two to 3 p.m. and then can get wind in from Wyoming that's particularly good 5, 6, 7 p.m., the more geographic diversity you have with renewable energy, and this is true for solar two, the easier it is to fill in those gaps throughout the day. Is climate change affecting, though, how and how much wind blows? Yes, probably it's not incredibly well understood, but there do seem to be some effects there and there are researchers who are working on that. And there wasn't a place in California that could handle this. Like they couldn't put more wind turbines out and like Palm Springs where there are so many right now. There's definitely some wind that hasn't been tapped yet in California that would be good. Like in Palm Springs, for instance, so if you drive on the town all the way out there, you see those old turbines. A lot of those old turbines from the 80s and 90s are getting replaced right now with bigger and more powerful ones that can generate more electricity. So that's happening in a lot of places, but really the sort of strongest and best wins in California have already been exploited. So as you look at massive amounts of new renewable power that we need to meet our climate goals and to provide reliable power, that's why there's a lot of attention looking out of state to other places. And arguably the advantage to California of this wind is not only is it just really strong wind, but it's especially good at blows throughout the day. It blows a really high percentage of hours, and it blows in the evening and into the night, which as people might know is when California has been kind of having trouble keeping the lights on. We have these big heat waves. It gets hot in the evening, solar panels stop generating, and then it's like, where's our clean power coming from? This is a resource that could help with that. So is all this power going to be used across all the western states, kind of like how the Colorado River serves as water for most of them. I think long-term, it's pretty likely that some of this Wyoming and New Mexico wind that's so good is going to go to a lot of places, but this project in particular, which is being proposed by this billionaire developer, Phil anschutz, the idea here is to sell it into California for the most part. When you drive the route of this project, you realize what the challenges in that are you realize that there are going to be people who don't want to look at it, people who are going to be worried, how does it affect the birds and the plants and the flora and fauna that live in this place that they're going to be people who think that they should be paid more to let the cross their land than is being offered by these power companies. So there's a need for this stuff, but this project is also a reminder that it's really, really hard to do. You need to have a lot of money and a lot of time and patience. The way things work right now to work through all the landowners to work through the environmental reviews and to really bring something

"Hi, my name is Frank E Thorne, chairman of the Wyoming GOP. Frank Ethan, he is the chair of the party, recent reports have shown that he is a member of the oath keepers group and that he was at the capitol on January 6th. And he's also a very strong ally of president Trump. And he's squashed any efforts to get away from that. And one way Thorne is doing that is by limiting the power of some of the more populated counties in the state, which might lead more moderate. Yeah, he said that Wyoming is not a big tent within the Republican Party. And so we've seen different county parties be punished for not adhering to the party orthodoxy. Today I wanted to talk with you about county and state conventions. And if you've been reading the media and listening to what they have to say, they have their own opinion on process. Now let me assure you that the party has rules at the county level in the state level, and they are being followed. And Laramie county are the two biggest counties in Wyoming, and we've seen them get punished for, you know, sort of minor rule violations. Earlier this year at the state convention, Laramie county where Cheyenne is located, they were not allowed to see any of their delegates because of a minor violation. And at a recent convention, natrona county, where Casper is located, they got their delegation slashed down from about like 30 to 6. So basically they had as many delegates as the smallest county in Wyoming. And, you know, you talk to people in those counties and they say, you know, this is because we have opposed euphoria this is because we're not playing along. And we're being punished for it. Even Liz Cheney has spoken out against Ethan. She said in an interview that there was sort of an extreme element within the party, which some of the Republicans in Wyoming have sort of taken on with the badge of. To what extent are we seeing these same issues within the GOP nationally? I think it shows what's happening in a lot of the Republican Party that it's really, really difficult to stand up to Donald Trump to criticize Donald Trump there is a lot of loyalty to him in different states in the party at large. And especially when it seems like you are siding with Democrats to do that, politically, that can end your career. We saw this in Michigan recently where Peter Meyer, the freshman member of Congress, he comes from the western part of the state, which is pretty conservative. The main thing that he did was he voted to impeach Trump a few days after he got into office. And we saw him lose his primary to John Gibbs, a former Trump administration official, and he was endorsed by the former president. So I think that what we're seeing in Wyoming is basically what we're seeing across the country that there are a handful of people who are in the Republican Party who are willing to push back on Trump to say that the 2020 election was not stolen through a widespread fraud. And they're being punished for it. Liz Cheney might be the most high profile Republican yet to face that backlash and again. She's a conservative conservative voting with Trump over 90% of the time and only broke with him on Trump. On January 6th specifically, so what does it say if Liz Cheney can't win in Wyoming? I think it will have a big killing effect on other Republicans. If you are on the fence, you're thinking about challenging what Trump has been saying, challenging the idea that the election was stolen. And you look at someone like Liz Cheney, who has more money than she could possibly spend in Wyoming, who has more name recognition in the state and nationally than anybody you can imagine who's getting all this free press. If she can't win, and not only can't wait, but if she is losing by double digits, which is what the polls are suggesting, then how can you do the same thing and your state and hope to win? I mean, she has everything going for her, but it's just, it's not enough. Finally, a REIT, you also interviewed a Cheney supporter. Susan Stubbs sin and she said that she hoped that a less vocal majority would turn out on primary date to give Liz Cheney another chance. And I know it's super squishy and maybe there's a little salt of optimism in there, but I feel like I am not the only one that holds these views. That sentiment reminds me of the silent majority that Trump supporters were talking about in the run up to the 2016 election where you'll remember most of the polls said that Trump was going to lose, and then he ended up winning and those silent majority people ended up being right. So might the same be said now, not just for Cheney, but for Republican voters at large, only against Trump's ideology this time. In other words, that the silent majority of Republicans are actually going to vote against Trump and his candidates. I mean, I think it's hard to know what's in people's hearts, what they would do if they didn't have a fear of repercussions. And I think that's sort of what Susan stops and was getting at. She writes a column for the local paper and she looks at the feedback that she gets from people. She just has this sense that there are more people who want to return to the traditional Republican Party, traditional conservative values. There are more people who believe that than the pulse suggest. Folks are not a 110% engaged. You know, their business owners or their raising their kids or they're out shooting guns or whatever. The primary will really say a lot about whether that's true or not. Whether there is this sort of silent majority of constitutionally minded Republicans who aren't happy with what Trump did in January 6th and leading up to it. There's a fear there too. Susan told me that she's cautiously optimistic, but afraid because that idea that there is a silent majority of people who are just afraid to speak publicly about this, but personally privately do believe that Cheney is doing the right thing.

Well, I think that the biggest advantage that she has is that she was endorsed by Trump last year. Over the next 6 months, the people of Wyoming are going to vote and you're going to send the incredible Harriet hagman to Congress and together we are going to end crazy Nancy Pelosi's political career once and for all. We've seen in primaries all throughout this year that the Trump endorsement can really help elevate candidates who are struggling or candidates were behind, but also the agents is focused on this idea that the January 6th committee is run by Democrats. So that has really helped Hague paint this as this is a democratic project to undermine Republicans to undermine Trump and by focusing so much on the committee. She's arguing that Cheney is not focused on the issues that actually matter to Wyoming voters. What about policy? What's the difference there between the two? So policy wise, they're very similar. When Cheney ran for Senate in 2014, Harriet hagman was a senior adviser on that campaign, so at one point there were very close. And it's funny, you can see that in the billboards around Casper Cheney has billboards with quotes of positive things hagman has said about her in the past. And like a picture of them sitting next to each other. So policy wise, they're very similar. And if anything, historically, what shitty has been a stronger advocate for Trump. If you go back to 2016, you have Liz Cheney host defending Trump, even after the infamous access Hollywood video came out. And then you have Harriet hagerman who is a Ted Cruz supporter and is actively trying at the Republican convention to stop Trump from becoming the nominee. So the difference between the two is really only Trump's endorsement. Yeah, the difference between them and a word is Trump. It's not policy. It's not different ideologies. They're both very conservative. They just differ on Trump and what happened during and after the 2020 election. I'm curious, though, how do people in Wyoming feel about whether Trump was good for the state? One of the things that I heard from people on both sides was that even if you didn't like Trump's persona and the way that he handled politics, they did like his policies. They liked that he defended the oil and gas industry. They liked that he was for coal production. They liked that he was against government overreach. And so on that front, a lot of people did like Trump. One professor I talked to said that in 2016, you could look at the vote in Wyoming as a vote against national Democrats and against Hillary Clinton. But by 2020, that was a vote for Trump. So until the events of January 6th, Liz Cheney was actually pretty aligned with president Trump, at least in voting for the issues that Trump cared about. Yeah, you know, the state politics makes strange bad fellows. If you go back to if you go back to 2016, Janet goes to Congress, she's very pro Trump, voting with him, 95% of the time. And when it comes to policies, she's as conservative as it gets. Yeah, so how is Cheney trying to communicate is, quote, writing the brand for Wyoming, even though she's against Trump now? Wyoming is a sort of place where you need to be out there campaigning and talking to people. There's about half a million people in the state. It's slightly bigger than Long Beach. So the fact that she has been in D.C. focused on the committee hearings and people, if they're seeing her, they're seeing her on 60 minutes. They're seeing her on the Sunday shows. They're not seeing her at the county fair or campaigning out there. And so basically her campaign has been, I'm leading the January 6th committee as vice chair trying to defend the constitution. I'm standing up for what I believe in. It's not the most politically expedient thing. It's not going to help her get reelected, but the people who support her think that is consistent with Wyoming values to stand up for what's right, even if it's not popular. But it seems like Wyoming voters this time around are throwing those old school values away and just replacing them with loyalty to Trump. I mean, the Wyoming GOP has effectively shunned Liz Cheney. Yeah, we saw in the 2021 after she voted to impeach Trump that a bunch of the county GOP parties voted to censure her, then the state party did, and then later in the year, they voted to stop recognizing her Republican. And then you get to Washington and the House Republican caucus voted to kick her out of leadership. After the break, what Cheney struggles in Wyoming say about the future of the Republican Party and the rest of the nation. Here's the question, is there anything that matters more than the safety of you and your loved ones? Of course not. So isn't it strange that many home security companies don't act that way? That's why I use and trust simply safe home security. They're advanced security technology helps me sleep at night, and they always put me and my family safety first. Here's why I love SimpliSafe.

"Yeah, pulls her suggesting that she's probably going to lose the election next week to her main primary challenger. What's her story? Here at hickman has a very, very strong Wyoming story. Fourth generation rancher. She grew up on a ranch on the eastern part of the state. She went on to become a lawyer. And it looks sort of law that she's done has been fighting federal regulations in Wyoming. So she's taken on the Clinton administration. She took on the EPA, which she took on USDA regulations. So she represents a lot of central themes to Wyoming, having those deep, deep roots in the state, and also pushing back on federal regulation on a state that is fiercely independent and very wary of the federal government. It's so interesting to hear that both have these deep personal connections to Wyoming. And that's important to people who live there. There's a saying that people in the state use a lot, quote writing for the brand. Where does that say come from and what does it mean when it comes to politics? Writing for the brand is like an old American was saying it's this idea that back then the ranches they had their brand and they would brand the livestock and that was sort of their logo and you would see that and say, okay, this belongs to this person. And so, you know, you're running a ranch and you have the ranch hands who are helping you. And so writing for the brand is basically saying you are defending this ranch, you're protecting and running this ranch in the livestock and everything. As if it was your own. And so you're showing this sort of loyalty to the person who is employing you this loyalty to that brand and to your fellow ranch hands. As it relates to today, we see both trying to say, I'm writing for the brand of Wyoming. Out here, we were raised with the code of the west. We still live by it today. The question is, what is that brand? Is saying that it's about, you know, Trump won the state by 70%. It's about the issues that are affecting Wyoming today. Like inflation, gas costs, fighting federal regulation. Liz Cheney doesn't know what writing for the brand means. We sent her to D.C. to be loyal to the outfit that hired her. We loyal to Wyoming and our values. Instead of fighting for us, she's fighting against president Trump. But la cheni is saying that it's about protecting the constitution. And Wyoming, we know what it means to ride for the brand. We live in the greatest nation, God has ever created, and our brand is the United States Constitution. What happened on January 6th and what happened leading up to it and what the committee is investigating. It's important to get to the bottom of that and hold people accountable. If we set aside our founding principles for the politics of the moment, the miracle of our constitutional republic will slip away. But that take from Cheney is not exactly popular right now in Wyoming. It doesn't seem like it. The reason I went in June is because I wanted to get a sense of how the hearing was playing out in real time. And I talked to some people who did end up watching it. One of the Republicans I talked to out in Jackson was Rebecca bexell. She's a local business owner. She had an interesting background that she's from Alabama. She's been an Obama supporter. She's been a Ron Paul supporter and then 2016 comes around and she is just like, oh, Trump. Trump, Trump always spoke to me. I loved him. I believed him. She said Trump spoke to her in a way that Obama did. And she's just been a die hard Trump supporter. And then she's also become a supporter of Herod hagman. And so what did Rebecca and other Wyoming voters like her think of the January 6th hearings? I talked to a lot of people on both sides who were sort of like, well, I don't know if I want to watch the hearings. I don't know if I want to relitigate what happened. There is this sense. I mean, there are the people who are fiercely supportive of Trump, but then there are also people who just want to move on. They don't want to think about what happened in 2020 or 2021 anymore. And so that's sort of been Chinese challenge of convincing people that what Trump did was wrong. While I was in Casper, one woman I met with was max Jacobson. I was a farm girl with 9 siblings. Max Jacobs then grew up on a dairy farm in Minnesota. She was in charge of the Trump rally that happened in Casper a few weeks before what I have loved Donald Trump since forever. Because his dad was hard on him. I mean, I think I can relate by being the indentured servant from a Minnesota farm. Our parents held us to a different standard back then. She used to be a Liz Cheney supporter and in fact she was an oil field worker for Halliburton where she and his father Dick Cheney were. I think that the thing that sort of made her switch over to hagman was one Liz Cheney being a part of the January 6th committee, but also she saw a lot of her own background in hegemon. Harriet worked hard, she was like us, an indentured servant to the ranch. She worked because she was hungry. So when she looks at Liz Cheney, who spent part of her childhood in Wyoming, but also spent a lot of time in Virginia while her father was in office. The cheneys were ranchers here, but Liz didn't grow up here. Liz didn't work hard. Liz had a golden spoon in her mouth, and then you look at hate men who grew up on a ranch, I guarantee you I bet Herod hegemon ran around and they were castrating the cow. She was carrying the bucket. She basically said that hagerman understands the sort of work ethic that she

"Us. Mike, thank you for having me. It's wonderful to visit with you today. You know, we've been hearing a lot about your story and I've been wanting to ask you personally what it's like to be in a race for Congress out of Wyoming where Liz Cheney has become such a polarizing really volatile figure within the Republican Party, it must be tough to balance voters who are turned off by Liz Cheney's actions and then selling Harriet hagerman to them. Can you talk a little bit about what that's like as a candidate? I mean, are you because you've got to sell yourself on why you would be best for the constituents of Wyoming or is our Liz Cheney's actions enough to have her get defeated? Mike, you know that's a really good question. And you're the first person to ask it, but it's something that I address every single day. Both with my team as well as internally in my own head. And the reason I say that is because you do have to have that balance. And what I often say to people is that I'm not just running against Liz Cheney, I am running four Wyoming. I am a lifelong Wyoming height, fourth generation, my great grandfather came to Wyoming on a cattle trail in 1879. I come from a ranch. I have a lot of family members here. I went to Casper college on a livestock judging scholarship in the 1980s, then went to the university of Wyoming and graduated with both my bachelor's in my law degree. I have the credentials and the experience and the knowledge to be ineffective congresswoman. It's just that simple. But a lot of times people really want to focus on Liz Cheney. And so you do have to kind of balance what those interests are because it is important for people to understand what my agenda is. What I intend to do when I get back to Congress. And so it is a constant balance, but typically when I do my town halls, I'll do maybe 20 or 25 minutes of an introduction. And I don't even, I don't even mention Liz Cheney's name. In that regard, it introducing myself. She's irrelevant. People ask me a lot of questions about her. And I'm happy to talk about her and why I believe that she has failed Wyoming and frankly failed America. But we also need to focus on the fact that Wyoming is entitled to a good Congress congressional representative. We only have one. And we have to make it count. And for well over a year now, Liz Cheney has focused on one thing and one thing only, and that is destroying president Trump and his supporters. And that's not what we said or to Washington do. One of the really extraordinary things that I witnessed a few weeks ago, congresswoman Cheney was mingling with media executives and reporters instead of going to the annual grassroots event and apparently she was quoted at the event as referring to Wyoming her constituents in Wyoming as crazies. I have to say, have you been shocked? You followed Liz Cheney's career as a lifelong, as you said, a lifelong deep rooted Wyoming night. Are you shocked? I mean, I don't want to talk a lot about Liz Cheney either. I want to talk about you, but what have you taken away from Liz Cheney's actions in trying to vilify all Trump supporters? Well, very simply, when she refers to people as crazy, who she's describing as crazy are people who disagree with her. And in a constitutional republic in a representative form of government, it's very bizarre to me that she looks at people who may disagree with what she's done with either the January 6th commission or frankly, some of the things that she's done with the armed services committee. Her praise of Billy, for example, last September after he got 13 of our incredible military personnel killed and blew up a family of ten. Watching Liz Cheney praise him was something that was just really shocking to me. But what she's saying is if you disagree with her on that, you're crazy. That's the way I took it. It's the way the vast majority of people in Wyoming took it. And what it's designed to do is shut down the discussion. And that's not what you do as a representative as I often say, I'm running. This is a job. This is a job we interview. I am running to represent the people of Wyoming. I am to be their spokesperson in Congress and further their agenda. There are going to be people in Wyoming who disagree with the policy positions I take or some of the votes that I make. That doesn't make them crazy and it doesn't make me crazy. It's the way our form of government works. But that's what Nancy Pelosi does it, Joe Biden does it. We all know the deplorables comment from Hillary Clinton. But what to me, those kinds of statements signify is that they can not engage in the debate. They can not engage in the discussion. So Liz Cheney will come to Wyoming. She meets with the press, but she doesn't meet with the citizens. So she isn't meeting with the Wyoming Republican Party. She isn't coming to our meetings. She is intimidating town hall events. She isn't having meet and greets. She is having debates, although I have promised to debate her, a challenged her to a debate, and we can either debate in her home state of Virginia or my home state of Wyoming. I'm happy to do either. But it is, she's not willing to have the discussion with us. She calls us names, walks in and talks to the liberal press, and that's the way that she's campaigning and apparently that's what she believes makes her an effective representative,.

"Liz cheney and it was just an interesting conversation over coffee and eggs and it's really funny because this is one of the things that is so interesting there's not wyoming is a relatively homogeneous area in a lot of ways it's almost ninety three percent white according to the most recent census There they don't have a ton of voters almost about three hundred thousand but sixty percent of them something like that are registered as republicans. This group was really interesting because inasmuch as there is a variety in the political thinking we saw kind of spectrum of takes on a republican politics in my owning ming and nationally and perspectives on liz. Cheney so here's just a couple of those guys had to say it really comes down to who i think washington to you washington best. Maybe after you know six eight years when these built-up maybe one of the other candidates we'll be able to do some good for wyoming as far as i can tell you with lescot got planning to point out.

I hardly disagree with her on her outlook about you. Know keeping troops abroad and network thing.

"Not lonely but because so few people that we become more self reliant we look after each other and the power of the individual looms lot bigger than it does. If you're living in a city of three million people you just throw your self image of yourself as an individual has to be different when you look around and his forager conceive. There's nobody there but us. So bill is a genteel gentleman of wyoming. He's actually originally from iowa but moved there in early twenties and became an embrace journalism. is a publisher and editor. He now runs a an online newsletter. Called the cowboy daily cowboy state daily and It's it's a little news. it's a lot of politics and it's a great insight into sort of thinking of the state but he talks about the power of the individual and and and the importance of space. It's also you have to take into account how low density and how how you know. This is the smallest populated state in the country. There's fewer people here than there are in washington. Dc so There's fewer than six people per square mile. And so wow bill says it it it that the that the individual feels more important perhaps than they would in another place he he actually calls wyoming A city with long streets which is funny because it's hundreds of miles in some cases from one From one town one population center to another and It's all driven on eighty miles an hour. Posted speed limits at sometimes went a little faster than i was gonna say or a little more if you wanna push but anyway but it's this idea that people are connected to their to their land into their area differently than a lot of the rest of the country is you know if you're in a city you have a different perspective on crowds and and you feel like bill says you feel more like an aunt and colony in the city was here. You feel empowered of sorts. You know gazelle. I guess to use my own space and you can run free and and it affects how you think about things you know. You're less interested in government mandates edicts. And you you feel like well i'm self-responsible self reliant. I can take care of myself and you know that is what we found. I think on on our trip. I i totally agree with that. I mean everybody so many people were saying you know there was this really interesting conversation about quote unquote wyoming values. I mean and it was like to me. We see this a lot in politics right. It's sort of has become one of those Kind of identifying ways that people speak to each other when they assume that the person in front of them understand what they're talking about sort of an in group way where it's like. Nobody actually gave us a list of what wyoming values are but everybody when anybody else said it would sort of just nod and be like yeah yeah wyoming values up. That's right. And the other thing i thought was so interesting. Is that anyone. We spoke to really had a sense that they were entitled to have met personally. Any of their politicians including liz cheney who is obviously like the the bigwig there only representative in the house of representatives in dc and show many some of the people who were like. Oh this has fallen from favor for me. Said that a lot of it was like they hadn't seen her. I haven't seen her in the last little while and you know to me if she's not going to be around. I just thought that was so amazing. And it's so different right. Yeah i talked to one. I asked a A democratic lawmaker. And yes there are a few of them around here around in wyoming. And i asked him i said. Do you lose cheney. And she said well. Have i ever had dinner or coffee with them. Because that's how they measure whether you know somebody you have personal face to face meetings in this case. She said no she had not five. She you know this is. This is a an area of wide space but personal touch. It's kind of an odd juxtaposition on it but you're right. People expect accountability from their representatives from their government from their grocery stores. Even know it's just you. You feel like you need to touch things and be there and and that's how people are two very personal kind of experience. i've found. yeah that's a really good. That's a really good point. And i think that that really does say a lot about how people i like how you pointed out like they do expect accountability. They expect someone to answer for something I thought it was really interesting because we saw that. Okay so let me set the scene. So we're in the car with bill. He's telling us about wide open spaces. I mean there's like. I remember asking him. My god is that creosote. It's the same stuff we have in arizona. Two thousand feet up. We've got sagebrush in arizona and it's the same like high sierra type. I guess they call. It are high plains high prairie high prairie out in wyoming and where you know whizzing between these. Two tiny tiny towns were between riverton is ten thousand people. Ish lander seven thousand people. And we're joining this group of guys who i mean this place this lodge. They're having coffee together in in the travelodge restaurant which is built just like a log cabin. It's just a log cabin in the middle of a parking lot and you go inside. I'm telling you it's smells like hash. Browns and coffee and they're they are at this long banquet table and they call themselves the fox news all stars and they were there to meet someone who has since suspended his campaign. But you know a local boy trying to make it big and run against liz. Cheney and they're they're six days a week to talk politics to have coffee at you know an ungodly early in the morning. I mean what did you think of the fox news. All stars lead but that was a highlight of the great. There were articulate candid. You know You know play their their feelings about stuff low but let me just pick up on team that you talked about sort of the intimacy of wyoming politics. Here's a congressional candidate about this. A congressional candidate who travels two hundred miles basically to get to a coffee with eight people in it. That's how retail the politics are in wyoming. This is the same group now. These guys are there was a former mayor. There's a county commissioner. So these are not like you know people who don't have skin in the game shall we say they're politicos for wyoming. There's certainly politicos exactly influence around their neighborhoods. I'm sure but the fact that they came there show that that this particular candidate. His name's darren. Smith came to speak to them. Shows sort of how important every single vote matters to people matters to people who are running. I mean liz. Cheney went to this group a few years ago dick cheney. Her father was there as well. So i mean people you know if you haven't met somebody in wyoming that lives there you will and and that's just the nature of the game but game but these guys were were really great and It was a great window into sort of the thinking of what's happening in the state with liz. Cheney and how many of them feel as one said betrayed by your vote to impeach trump and we had a good discussion about where we go from here whether trump trumpism needs trump.
