    During the French Revolution’s “Reign of Terror,” those accused of not being true enough to the cause were publicly beheaded. To unify the Communist Party in Russia, the Stalinist purges did much the same. Mao used the equivalent tactic with his Cultural Revolution. It’s a tried and true technique. People who didn’t want to get swept up in these eradications learned quickly to not just embrace the political philosophies championed by the new power structure, but to chant the new mantras louder than the person next to them. This way they can show they’ve always been on the winner’s team,...

    The Lincoln Project, a Republican super PAC, in a new ad slammed some of President Trump’s top GOP allies in the Senate, accusing a slate of Republican lawmakers of “cowardice” and “betrayal.” The ad, released Wednesday, states, “Someday soon, the time of Trump will pass. This circus of incompetence, corruption and cruelty will end. When it does, the men and women in Trump’s Republican Party will come to you, telling you they can repair the damage he’s done. They’ll beg you to forgive their votes to exonerate Trump from his crimes, ask you to forgive their silence, their cowardice and...

    For months, Governor Jared Polis and other state officials have been accused of picking winners and losers through public-health orders announced to stop the spread of COVID-19. Polis's decision to shut down bars and clubs statewide mere weeks after their limited reopenings has renewed that criticism — and it's likely to continue with news that he's now extended Colorado's emergency order to thirty days from July 6 ... Now comes more fuel for the fire: a just-released study that found Colorado has the second-most restrictive COVID-19 rules among the fifty states and the District of Columbia. ...

    Patrick Harrington is sitting on a rock high on a hilltop...his head in his hands. The owner of Kindness Yoga, and one of the most well-known yogis in Denver, is struggling to piece together the words to explain what happened — in the span of a week — to his once-stellar reputation and his 19-year-old business. He is stunned, though remorseful. He is eager to speak up, yet on edge for fear of saying anything that could make all of this any worse. Harrington, a straight, white guy who expanded Kindness to nine studios and 160 employees across metro Denver,...

    DENVER (CBS4) – Republican Lauren Boebert, running to represent Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, will spend July 4th with Pres. Donald Trump. They’ll be celebrating Independence Day at the same event. Earlier this week, Boebert defeated five-term incumbent Rep. Scott Tipton in the Republican primary. Boebert owns a restaurant on the Western Slope that opened for dine-in service in May and violated a cease and desist order. She and her restaurant also made headlines for employees openly carrying guns.

    THE U.S. MILITARY HAS BEEN fighting in Afghanistan for almost nineteen years. House Democrats, working in tandem with key pro-war GOP lawmakers such as Rep. Liz Cheney, are ensuring that continues. Last night, the House Armed Services Committee voted overwhelmingly in favor of an amendment — jointly sponsored by Democratic Congressman Jason Crow of Colorado and Congresswoman Cheney of Wyoming — prohibiting the expenditure of monies to reduce the number of U.S. troops deployed in Afghanistan below 8,000 without a series of conditions first being met. The imposed conditions are by no means trivial: for these troop reductions from Afghanistan...

    President Trump congratulated Lauren Boebert late Tuesday night after the pro-gun businesswoman defeated Rep. Scott Tipton, who represented his Colorado district for five terms in Congress. “Congratulations on a really great win!” Trump tweeted. Trump’s tweet linked to a post from her Twitter account from back in May where she described herself as a tough fighter against socialism and advocate for the Second Amendment. “I refuse to send my children into a socialist nation," the mother of 4 said. "Their freedom IS my motivator! Threaten the liberty of Americans, and I’ll be there to hold you accountable! #USHouse #CO03 #HELLNObeto...

    Sitting here watching returns in Western Colorado. Scott Tipton is on the verge of defeat to newcomer, "Shooter's Grill" restaurant owner and western Colorado resident Lauren Boebert. Last check, it was sitting at Boebert 54.34%, Tipton at 45.66%. This is a major shift towards draining the swamp of do nothing establishment leeches to installing newy, freedom oriented blood. On my local level, former State Representative Ray Scott is losing to newcomer Cody Davis. Unfortunately, former Governor John Hickenlooper won the anti-American leftist liberal vote thanks to the front range, or as we call it over here, New Commieforniastan. The front...

    The "Never Trump" coalition of Republicans fighting to oust President Trump from the White House is making a risky play, just as the president's lackluster poll numbers are raising concerns on the right -- they're going after Republican senators too. The effort is being led by The Lincoln Project, a media-savvy outfit that spends most of its time hammering the incumbent president with scathing TV and digital ads. But along with targeting Trump, The Lincoln Project is now weighing in on the races of GOP senators facing tough reelections this year. ... The spot characterizes Daines – who’s facing a...

    Colorado Supreme Court upholds 2013 large-capacity gun magazine ban as constitutional By: Blair Miller DENVER – The Colorado Supreme Court upheld the state’s ban on large-capacity gun magazines as constitutional in a ruling issued Monday nearly seven years after the law passed in the wake of the Aurora theater shooting. “The legislation is a reasonable exercise of the police power that has neither the purpose nor effect of nullifying the right to bear arms in self-defense. Accordingly, the court affirms the judgment of the court of appeals,” Justice Monica M. Márquez wrote in the opinion. Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and...

    On Sunday a major positive milestone was reached for the first time, coronavirus deaths declined by 90% in this country from the high set on April 21st. That’s an incredibly positive story about our national battle with the virus. Yet, shockingly, it has received almost no media attention. (UPDATE: On Monday deaths were also down 90% from the April 21st peak, meaning there were two straight days this occurred, again, with almost zero media coverage). That’s indefensible because this is not complicated data to track down. You can see it yourself on this chart here, on April 21st 2,693 people...

    Denver commissioned "Pioneer Monument," a statue commemorating the state's early days, in 1911. The piece comprises four main sculptures — the Hunter, the Prospector, the Pioneer Mother and, on top, Kit Carson on horseback. Sculptor Frederick MacMonnie's original idea was to have a Native American chief atop the fountain, but when citizens protested. Carson was the compromise. But because he's since become a controversial figure, city crews today removed the Carson portion of the statue for safekeeping.

McClain, 23, was wearing a mask when someone called 911 to report that he seemed suspicious. McClain often wore the mask while jogging, according to his family and friends. He was not committing a crime and was unarmed when police approached him. FOX31 was the first to track down the store clerk and the surveillance video from the store...
