The group, "Here 4 The Kids," wants Gov. Jared Polis to sign an executive order banning guns altogether, including law enforcement and the national guard, even though they know it violates United States and Colorado constitutions. The crowd arrived just before 5 a.m. "We are here for the kids. We are here to ban guns...

    Former WWE star Stan Lane has taken a second DNA test to prove he is not the father of Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert — once again squashing claims made by the Republican politician’s mother… …Lane and Boebert agreed last month to take a new DNA test, which showed that the lawmaker is not his daughter despite her mother, Shawn Roberts Bentz, insisting otherwise… …Soon after Boebert was born, her mother sought child support from Lane, who “received notice that a woman I had a short affair with was accusing me of fathering her child,” Lane said in a statement to...

    President Joe Biden tripped on a sandbag and fell as he completed handing out diplomas at the US Air Force Academy commencement in Colorado on Thursday. Biden appeared fine afterward, walking without assistance to his seat in the stands. He was seen smiling and jogging toward his vehicle at the ceremony’s conclusion. The White House said the president was fine after the fall and he later joked about it, yelling “I got sandbagged!” to reporters after stepping off Marine One Thursday evening. The stumble began as Biden was jogging away from center stage, where he earlier delivered a commencement address...

    Colorado’s legislative session is 120 consecutive days long and during the 2023 session lawmakers introduced 617 bills. Of those, 218 passed and have been signed into law by Democratic Gov. Jared Polis. More are waiting to be signed. Democrats have a historic majority in the Colorado House, a supermajority in the Senate, and control the governorship. As such, all bills passed with Democrat support—and more often than not, over Republican’s vehement objections. It’s a marked change from 2002 when the GOP dominated politics in Colorado. Colorado Republican Rep. Stephanie Luck is one of a handful of Colorado Representatives fighting back...

    A Colorado high school senior is taking legal action against her school district after officials denied her request to wear a sash with an image of the U.S. and Mexican flags during her upcoming graduation. The district’s decision is a violation of Naomi Villasano’s constitutionally protected right to free speech, according to a lawsuit filed by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), a Latino legal civil rights organization, and the Greenberg Traurig, LLP, law firm. According to the lawsuit involving Garfield County School District 16, Grand Valley High School Principal Kelly McCormick told Villasano, who's 18, that...
  • EDITORIAL: Polis would pay us with our own money. ( Colorado )

    We’ll say it again now that Gov. Jared Polis has inked his purported “relief” for soaring property taxes: His plan is largely an illusion. Ignore the stagecraft of Wednesday’s signing ceremony for Senate Bill 23-303. It was a nice publicity stunt — the governor and assorted lawmakers turning up at the home of a Commerce City resident who supposedly would benefit. It was all sleight of hand. As we noted here only weeks ago, the Polis plan is as if someone offered to help you pay your bills — then reached into your pocket, grabbed your wallet, pulled out some...

    In a series of 911 calls in December, one of Congresswoman Lauren Boebert's sons called 911, saying his father and her then-husband was, "throwing (her son) around the house." Boebert's son, who KRDO is not specifically identifying by name or age, called 911 at 6:46 pm on December 11, 2022, according to records from the Garfield County Sheriff's Office. According to the 911 call and court documents, the boy was asking for help regarding Boebert's soon-to-be ex-husband Jayson Boebert. Boebert's son is heard crying and breathing heavily, as he tells the dispatcher, "My dad's been f****** throwing me around the...

    Rep. Lauren Boebert's son called 911 in December to report that his father, Jayson Boebert, had gotten physical with him and was "throwing" him around the house and that he didn't know why. Minutes after the call ended — while Garfield County Sheriff's Office deputies were on their way to their home — the teen called again to take the accusations back, with Lauren Boebert jumping on the phone to say her son "doesn't need help." Jayson Boebert denied to the deputies — and to Insider — that he had gotten physical with the teen. … the congresswoman is suing...

    The Federalist ^ | MAY 19, 2023 | Tristan Justice
    The new BLM rule introducing so-called conservation leasing will likely become the administration’s vehicle for locking up federal property. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is preparing to fundamentally reshape how public lands are managed without congressional approval. In March, the agency unveiled a sweeping proposal to establish a framework for “conservation leases” that places a newfound priority on preservation. The new Public Lands Rule presents a radical departure from the “multiple use mandate” Congress outlined for the agency in the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA). New Rules Are a ‘Game Changer’.. FLPMA requires federal lands...

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced this week that he organized for a bus to bring about 40 immigrants north to Denver, Colorado, where they were left near a park, as part of an ongoing plan to move more migrants to the city, according to the Houston Chronicle. Abbott recently announced that Texas has relocated more than 18,500 people as part of his efforts to send migrants who have been processed at the border to northern cities. The governor claimed in an interview earlier this month that these "are the chosen cities by the migrants themselves. Every one of these migrants...

    WASHINGTON—Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.), a former Louisiana sheriff, physically removed a protester who crossed into a Republican news conference on May 17 and approached Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) in a way Higgins described as “threatening.” The news conference, during which Higgins, Boebert, Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.), Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), and others expressed their opposition to ongoing treaty negotiations with the World Health Organization, was interrupted when a left-wing protester began heckling members of Congress. After the protester crossed into the news conference, Higgins removed him. The conference was in the House Triangle, one of the most popular news conference...

    A ballot initiative proposal in Colorado seeks to scale back the state's oil and gas industries by phasing out new permits by 2030. A coalition of climate and environmental groups called Safe and Healthy Colorado submitted the draft ballot initiative to the Colorado Legislative Council in late April, and the state's Title Board set a title for it May 3. "Colorado can continue to be a leader in a clean energy economy, and we can clean up our air and water, but we can't do that while continuing to commit ourselves to the polluting industries of the last century," Safe...

She is the mother of my children and my partner for the last 20 years. Please just let me have some peace.' Boebert, 36, cited 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason for filing.

    Eighteen months ago Yemi Mobolade was a political newcomer who set out to become Colorado Springs' next mayor and break the status quo. On Tuesday night, he was poised to do just that — and was also on his way to making history as the city's first elected Black mayor. Unofficial results released by the City Clerk's Office at 9:40 p.m. show Mobolade had about 57.5% of the vote, ahead of his opponent Wayne Williams in the race, who had 42.5%. Mobolade's decisive victory represents a seismic political surprise in Colorado Springs, long known as a conservative stronghold. Though the...

    Federal officials gave more than $23 billion COVID-19 aid to the nation’s top 20 nonprofit hospitals even as a 62 percent increase in their collective net assets led parallel surges in the institutions’ total profits and revenues during the 2018-2021 time period spanning the Coronavirus pandemic, according to a new report. Only two of the 20 institutions have repaid the government for the COVID-19 aid they received. “The 20 largest nonprofit hospitals in the country continued making massive profits while their cumulative net assets soared to $324.3 billion in 2021, up from $200.6 billion in 2018.

    As Colorado kids struggle to recoup learning losses post-pandemic, teachers unions keep proving that’s not their priority. Standing at the center is the state’s most prominent teachers union — the Colorado Education Association. At the CEA’s statewide conference on April 22, the organization — which claims to represent teachers — took a brazen, ideological stance when it passed a resolution attacking capitalism for “inherently exploit(ing) children, public schools, land, labor, and resources.” Never mind how America’s free enterprise system enables businesses and homeowners to pour billions of dollars into our state’s education system through taxation, or the philanthropic contributions of...
