    Authorities said Friday they raided hundreds of black market marijuana operations in Colorado that flouted the state’s cannabis law by growing tens of thousands of plants in Denver-area homes and selling the drugs out of state. Investigators seized more than 80,000 plants and 4,500 pounds (2,040 kilograms) of harvested marijuana, state and federal prosecutors said at a news conference. Officers raided 247 homes and eight businesses and arrested 42 people in Denver and seven nearby counties. State law allows up to 12 marijuana plants per residence for personal use, but some of the homes had more than 1,000 and many...

    Boulder, CO – Late yesterday, Operation Rescue obtained 911 records that revealed shocking details of a medical emergency that took place on April 2, 2019, at Warren Hern’s notorious Boulder Abortion Clinic. According to the records, a doctor at the Boulder Abortion Clinic bypassed the 911 exchange and directly called American Medical Response (AMR) requesting an urgent response for an 18-year old female who was 33 weeks pregnant. Use of the 911 system is known to be the quickest way to obtain emergency help. Direct calls to private ambulance companies delays response times, however, those calls are not subject to...

    Boulder, CO – One of America’s few abortion facilities that conducts abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy was the site of a medical emergency on April 2, 2019. The Boulder Abortion Clinic, owned and operated by late-term abortion specialist Warren Hern, summoned an ambulance at around 11:00 a.m. A video taken at the scene by a pro-life activist shows that the ambulance pulled into the parking lot next to the fenced and gated abortion facility and began to off-load a gurney when a worker came out and instructed them to pull around to the back of the building. EMTs...

    Republican U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton’s office is blaming a rogue staffer for tweeting a mocking abortion meme over the weekend deemed offensive by current and past state lawmakers who saw it and retweeted it before it was deleted a short time later. The meme, issued from Tipton’s official congressional Twitter account, showed female protestors with the caption “We want government controlled healthcare!” Then below that the meme reads, “*State government Bans abortions*” followed by a picture of a surprised Pikachu — the popular Pokémon character. ***IMAGE ON LINK GOING TO MAKE YOU LOOK** The meme is an apparent reference to...

    DENVER (KWCH) Some in Colorado are worried a controversial billboard advertising abortion may give their state a bad name. The billboard is located along I-70, and it's visible to those coming into the state from Utah. It reads "Welcome to Colorado, where you can get a safe, legal abortion." Abortion supporters tell CBS Denver the billboard is meant to let those in neighboring states know that Colorado supports their reproductive medical needs. **VIDEO ON LINK***

    he Trump campaign believes it can flip several states in 2020, including Minnesota, New Hampshire, Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico, according to senior Trump campaign officials who spoke with the Washington Examiner. The five states went to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, but the campaign says it is confident it can turn them for Trump in 2020. “There are some states that we were very close in in 2016, Minnesota being one of them, New Hampshire being another … so I think that, you know, it’s pretty obvious to see what the states are that we...

"I’m calling for a boycott of Alabama," Griswold wrote in a tweet. "Until Alabama allows for safe & legal access to health care for women, I will not authorize spending of state resources on travel to Alabama. I call on other state and local leaders in CO and across the country to join me in this boycott."

    Full title: Ocasio-Cortez Rebuffs ‘Fact-Checkers,’ Says The World Ending In 12 Years Was ‘Dry Humor’ Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez complained Sunday that GOP fact-checkers were taking her “dry humor” literally. “This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and ‘fact check’ it,” she tweeted. “Like the ‘world ending in 12 years’ thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal. But the GOP is basically Dwight from ‘The Office’ so who knows.” (AOC tweet) And when Ocasio-Cortez first made the claim, she certainly appeared to...

    Ohhh, AOC. I can’t figure out if she’s so full of it she often trips over her own crap, or if she’s really, truly braindead. Just a few days ago, the Socialist Sweetheart revealed that her assertion that the world would end in “12 years” was OBVIOUSLY sarcasm and dry humor, and if you don’t get the joke, you’re just stupid. This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it. Like the “world ending in 12 years” thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think...

    Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez acts like she's confused and doesn't understand why $93 trillion is too much. She doesn't have a real way to generate that money. If anything, it would come from taxpayers. Not to forget, the Democratic Party already struck down her Green New Deal when they voted on it the first time. Democrats don't seem to have faith in AOC's plan. Video at source.

    I love a good joke, and I even have a particular fondness for bad ones. Jokes are good. And when a stupid person says something she later regrets and unconvincingly tries to play it off as a joke, that can be amusing too. That's what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is trying to do right now. After months of being mocked for her apocalyptic predictions about globalwarmingclimatechange, now she's saying... just kidding! ... So if Republicans don't listen to AOC when she says we only have 12 years left to save the planet, they're evil and hate children and want everybody to die......

    RUSH: Yes, my friends, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has rebuffed all of the fact-checkers out there. She came out, as you might remember, and compared climate change to World War II. (summarized) “We only have 12 years to stop Hitler! We only have 12 years to stop the Nazis from taking over the world!” In this case, climate change is Hitler (aside from Trump), and the Nazis are all of the things that we are doing to destroy the planet. Twelove years. We had 12 years. Well, the fact-checkers got in gear. (Not the liberal fact-checkers. The Drive-By Media dutifully reported it...

    She was passionate. She was angry. She was borderline psychotic and clearly in need of medication. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez delivered a bizarre and completely unhinged speech at Monday night's Green New Deal event hosted by the Sunrise Movement. Alternating between screaming at those in attendance and REALLY screaming at those in attendance, the freshman congresswoman eviscerated eardrums as she touted the need to "decarbonize the economy" and for American workers to get paid as much as "they need." Asked to clarify what that amount might be, Ocasio-Cortez responded, "a living wage," then failed to specify what constitutes "a living wage."

    PJ Media ^ | 05/15/2019 | Tyler O' Neil
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has emerged as a figurehead for the Democratic Party — a symbol of the new socialist identity politics consensus. Her Green New Deal brings together the intersectionality narrative, big government take-overs, climate alarmism, and a clear definition of good-versus-evil in politics. If anyone opposes the Green New Deal panacea, they're not just wrong, they're wicked. She is something of a kingmaker in the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination race, and at the end of last week, she rejected Vice President Joe Biden because he undermined her polarizing narrative. A Reuters report last Friday revealed Joe Biden's plans...

    The case of two anti-Trump leftists, one of whom is transgender, who shot up a school in Denver last week has been placed under seal by a judge, banning the public from seeing it. Devon Erickson, 18, and Alec McKinney, 16, opened fire on two classrooms at the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) charter school in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, on May 7, killing one student and injuring eight others. 16-year-old Alec McKinney identifies as male but is biologically female, having been born Maya Elizabeth McKinney. Following the shooting, it emerged that his accomplice Erickson had posted anti-Christian and anti-Trump...

    The University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS) has settled a lawsuit with a Christian student group which forces the university to recognize the group as an official student organization. Breitbart News reported in February that a Christian student group at UCCS had filed a lawsuit against their university over its refusal to recognize them as an official student organization. This week, UCCS settled with the Ratio Christi student group. The original legal complaint against the university claimed that administrators told students that they could not require their group leader to be a Christian. “It has refused to do so specifically...

    The Washington Post is discounting America’s win in World War Two because American forces were all “racists.” I guess that we now have to delete America’s part in World War Two from the history books to suit liberal sensibilities just like we are erasing statues to military people all across the nation. The attack on the Allied Forces in WWII came in an idiotic liberal article with the unwieldy title of, “Allied leaders were anti-Nazi, but not anti-racist. We’re now paying the price for their failure.” The article by a foaming-at-the-mouth lib named John Broich — who claims to be...
