    Colorado's six-time Olympic gold medal winning swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen says agents with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) humiliated her. She took to social media Sunday to detail her experience getting through security at Denver International Airport. She said agents made her go through a full body search even though she has Pre check. "They go around your breasts, they basically go under your butt and the just grab things, not grab, they touch things that are not appropriate and it's really embarrassing," said Van Dyken-Rouen. Van Dyken-Rouen said as much as she and husband Tom travel all over the...

    “Mexico First” has been the open, avowed policy of the government of Mexico for a generation, and Mexico expects its former residents to be loyal to Mexico for the next 200 years. Yet, when Donald Trump calls for an “America First” foreign policy, as he did in a speech this past week, he is denounced by pundits and the national security establishment for “nativism” and “demagoguery,” as if that policy is a novel and radical idea. Well, not in Mexico. I know that for a fact because I had it explained to me in Mexico City back in 2001 by...
  • The EPA Stashes BILLIONS In Slush Fund-Like Accounts

    dailycaller.com ^ | 4/30/2016 | Ethan Barton
    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials have accumulated at least $6.3 billion in more than 1,300 obscure spending accounts akin to slush funds that are essentially beyond congressional, media and public scrutiny. The accounts – which were created through EPA’s Superfund program – are not technically secret because the agency officially acknowledges their existence. But getting concrete details about deposits and expenditures is extremely difficult. The EPA deposited more than $6.3 billion into an estimated 1,308 special accounts between 1990 and 2015, according to the agency’s website, and has spent more than half of the total. The agency doesn’t publicly report...

    DENVER — The Environmental Protection Agency came under fire Thursday after an official said the agency would not fully cover a Colorado county’s expenses stemming from the EPA-caused toxic wastewater spill at the Gold King Mine. Colorado Republicans blasted the agency after the Durango Herald reported that an EPA official nixed some of La Plata County’s proposed cooperative agreement for $2.4 million in spill-related costs over 10 years at a Wednesday board of county commissioners meeting. Sen. Cory Gardner, Colorado Republican, described the report as “outrageous” and “yet another example of the Washington double standard,” adding that he would work...

    For 65 years, Denver Christian Schools used the mascot “Crusaders,” but that’s all about to change. Although CEO Todd Lanting says it’s not about political correctness, the change is being made because some might find it offensive to Muslims, EAG News reported Tuesday. “In our mission, in light of the command to love our neighbors as ourselves, the crusader was an inconsistent, inappropriate symbol for that mission,” Lanting told KUSA. EAG added: After using the Crusaders mascot for 65 of the school’s 100 year history, officials in November began to solicit ideas for a new symbol, and have since narrowed...

Breitbart News has obtained an email that Boulder County GOP chairwoman Peg Cage sent to other top Republican officials in Colorado, including to other party chairs, describing the errors in the process that led to “the perception of fraud.” Reached for comment on the email, Cage said that the caucus might have to be done over.

On Monday, the state Supreme Court let the lower court ruling stand. Attorneys for Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, filed the appeal last fall. They argued the government shouldn’t force Phillips to violate his Christian beliefs.

The idea has Gov. John Hickenlooper's support, even though it might mean the state picks up the cost.

Speaking in Staten Island, N.Y., the businessman and GOP front-runner noted that he announced his campaign on June 16, 2015. Trump said that iwas two months later, in August, when the Colorado GOP's executive committee decided to give the power to delegates, not the voters, to decide whom they would support. Last weekend Texas Sen. Ted Cruz completed a sweep of all the state's 34 delegates. "Just so you understand. They keep saying 'we didn't change the rules' ......

    Donald Trump is complaining that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is racking up “voterless” victories in states such as Colorado and Wyoming, where delegates are chosen by a “small handful of elites” who are “sidelining” Republican voters. This is dead wrong. In both Colorado and Wyoming, all registered Republican voters in the state had the chance to vote and participate in the delegate selection process. The Wyoming Republican Party website explains the process clearly: “Delegates to the state convention are elected by the county conventions. Delegates to the county convention are elected by precinct caucuses in their respective counties. Any person...

Priebus said it "really isn't something that most people give a darn about." Priebus said not moving past this is this gets in the way of unifying the party. Priebus tried to distance himself from the controversial process, saying he doesn't write the rules for the Republican party, "the delegates at the convention write the rules." However, Priebus defended the process and said it's "pretty much the same system the Democrats use; delegates and voters choose the nominee."

For instance, Hillary Clinton seems to be very adept at snagging more delegates than Bernie Sanders even when Bernie wins. Ted Cruz had been playing this inside game for a while now. A prime example was his loss to Trump in Louisiana, which nonetheless gave him an equal number of delegates, and an opportunity to collect even more. And Donald Trump is now screeching about Ted Cruz cleaning Trump’s clock in Colorado, where Cruz took all 34 delegates in a Republican convention held on Saturday.

    ... But it is alledged that it might be employed in such a manner as to promote the election of some favourite class of men in exclusion of others; by confining the places of election to particular districts, and rendering it impracticable to the citizens at large to partake in the choice. Of all chimerical suppositions, this seems to be the most chimerical. On the one hand no rational calculation of probabilities would lead us to imagine, that the disposition, which a conduct so violent and extraordinary would imply, could ever find its way into the national councils; and on...

    As Donald Trump attempts to distract from his campaign's myriad failures in Colorado by cynically stirring the "rigged corrupt game" pot, one of the public faces of this phony outrage is a gentleman who earned himself prime Drudge real estate when he dramatically burned his voter registration card on camera -- claiming that he was wrongfully turned away from the state party convention because he's a Trump fan. It's a disenfranchisement conspiracy cooked up by the elites, he argued, torching his Republican documentation in protest.  The Federalist's Mollie Hemingway was skeptical of the man's version of events and dug into the back story....

    Advancement by technicality is bad form. Advancement by manufactured technicality is dishonest. The GOP argument in the Colorado delegation scandal is, "No rules were broken because we make up our own rules. No rules were broken because we have the right to change the rules to our favor. 'The law means what we say it means.' If the law says something inconvenient, we'll change it." Just because no rules were broken does not mean it was ethical. Q: What kind of person maneuvers in the shadows taking advantage of unknown weak points, many of which they have personally created, as...

    Suspicious white powder, together with vile anti-Semitic rant, triggered security scare; man could face year in prison. A Boulder man accused of sending letters containing a suspicious white powder to two Jewish organizations in the Colorado city pleaded guilty. Jeffery Thomas Klinkel, 34, pleaded guilty late last month to one count each of felony menacing and using a hoax chemical or biological weapon, the Daily Camera reported Monday. He will be sentenced on June 1 and faces up to five years in prison. On April 6, 2015, the Boulder JCC received a letter that read, "This Goyim is enjoying the...

    Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant revival tour might cause headaches for down-ballot Republicans who are already trying to put space between themselves and the divisive party front-runner. (SNIP) Three Senate Republicans from Latino-heavy states, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Dean Heller of Nevada and Jeff Flake of Arizona, are all well-practiced in the dance of softening tough-talk on immigration enforcement to avoid alienating voters.

    In the race for the Republican nomination, Donald Trump would seem to be in the catbird seat. He has won the most states, the most delegates and the most votes – by nearly 2 million. He has brought out the largest crowds and is poised for huge wins in the largest states of the East, New York and Pennsylvania. Yet, there is a growing probability that the backroom boys will steal the nomination from him at a brokered convention in Cleveland. Over the weekend, Colorado awarded all 34 delegates to Ted Cruz. The fix had been in since August, when...

    YOU WON’T BELIEVE THIS! CRUZ SUPPORTERS ATTEMPT COUP AT EAGLE FORUM! Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly has been a national leader of the conservative movement since the publication of her best-selling 1964 book, A Choice Not An Echo.

On March 11, 2016 conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly endorsed Donald Trump for President at his St. Louis rally.

    "and tells disgruntled Trump supporters to 'go ahead and burn the party down, if that's what it takes'" Republican leaders in Colorado have told Trump supporters to 'burn the party to the ground' after they were denied a public vote for their presidential hopeful. In what has been described as a 'political hack deal', Republican party leaders in Colorado pledged their support to Senator Ted Cruz without allowing registered party voters a chance to influence their decision. However, in Colorado, head of the Republican party Steve House defended the decision. In a letter to an angry registered voter, House said:...

    The American victims who have lost their children to illegal alien crime denounced Sen. Ted Cruz(R-TX) “voterless victory” in Colorado. The victims who endorsed Donald Trump said that they were appalled by the state GOP’s attempt to “silence” the American people. “The arrangement in Colorado is a sham. I can’t really call it an election. Ted Cruz is not for Americans,” said Cruz constituent Laura Wilkerson. “He is as bought and paid for as Hillary Clinton.” “This needs to be a wake up call for Americans,” said Texas resident Dan Golvach. “We have been sleep walking into a third world...
