    <p>About 10pm last night a "march" of approx 100 people went through downtown Denver. They claimed this was a solidarity march with the March On Washington. I'll refer to these people as the FTP marchers. After awhile a group of about 50 Militia people show up. Here are my thoughts...</p>

    Farmers Fresh has been threatened with legal action.. Farmers Fresh Market supporters rallied outside the Ignacio grocery store Saturday in a show of support for the store’s free-choice mask-wearing policies. The store has received a legal warning from La Plata County authorities for flouting the state’s mandatory mask order. Gov. Jared Polis issued the executive order in July to help reduce coronavirus transmission. On Saturday, community members weighed in with a vote of support for Farmers Fresh. “I’m very, very thankful for it. I think now is the time to make your voice heard one way or another,” said Amos...

    Colorado House Republican leader Patrick Neville and conservative commentator Michelle Malkin announced they're suing Gov. Jared Polis over the statewide mask order Wednesday afternoon The Democrat governor issued his executive order on July 16 to combat the spread of coronavirus. Opponents, mostly Republicans, have seen it as government overreach more than public safety. While Polis is the defendant, the lawsuit questions the constitutionality of the Colorado's Disaster Emergency Act, when the Colorado Constitution "clearly" separates powers between the legislative and executive branches, the plaintiffs said Wednesday afternoon. The legislative branch is supposed to create laws that the executive branch enforces,...

    American Thinker ^ | August 25, 2020 | Thomas Lifson
    The evidence now is overwhelming that the Democrats are planning to throw the nation into a deep crisis following Election Day, in a cynical plot to steal a presidential election, and with it, control of Congress. The plan isn't even hiding in plain sight; it is trumpeted almost daily: Send out tens of millions of unsolicited mail ballots to everyone on voter rolls (that in most jurisdictions haven't been purged of those who died or moved). We already know from the experience of Clark County, Nevada that 17% of the 1.3 million ballots sent to registered voters were "undeliverable," meaning...

    People break windows, start fires in downtown Denver Saturday night; 9 arrested By: Blair Miller Aug 23, 2020 DENVER – Several dozen people, some donning shields and helmets, and police clashed at the headquarters of the Denver Police Department on Saturday night. A group had organized a protest to start at 8 p.m. in response to an incident earlier this week when police and others clashed as the city removed people experiencing homelessness from a camp near 29th and Glenarm. A flier told people to “bring your gear.” Sometime before 9 p.m., a van arrived to provide some of the...

    'I could not believe it': Grandmother questions why Greeley school is not requiring masks By: Gary BrodeAug 22, 2020 GREELEY, Colo. — A private school in Greeley is being accused of not following the governor's statewide mask order. "I think the school needs to be accountable," said the grandmother of two young children attending the school. The grandmother asked to hide her identity to protect her grandchildren. "It’s Colorado guidelines that’s masks are mandated and these are adults making these choices for these children, and I think it’s wrong," the woman said. School at Dayspring Christian Academy started this week....

    Gotta say, it was bold of Democratic Party convention organizers to let voters know they plan on passing federal energy policies that would transform the rest of the country into California. The Golden State is experiencing rolling blackouts even as the Democrats speak. Millions of people are having their electrical power turned off in the middle of a heat wave — more specifically, their air conditioners. Blackouts aren’t merely an inconvenience, it is an economic drag and dangerous to vulnerable populations. California doesn’t have enough reliable power — which is to say fossil-fuel and nuclear energy – because it depends...

    Denice Reich, a prominent Denver-area realtor, has been dumped by RE/MAX Alliance after a post on Nextdoor accusing her of removing Black Lives Matters signs from yards in the Hilltop neighborhood. When reached by phone on August 19, Reich, who pronounces her last name "Rich," told Westword that she would send a statement about the situation that afternoon, adding, "We want the truth out, not the bullshit." While no statement has yet arrived, Reich subsequently told Denver7 that she removed two BLM placards, not the six to eight claimed on Nextdoor, because "the signs were as offensive as 'KKK' signs,"...

    Out in the city of Denver, Colorado, the City Council recently moved ahead with a vote on an unusual proposition. Councilwoman Candi Cedebaca had drafted a proposal to replace the Denver Police Department with a “Peace Force,” comprised of “Peace Officers.” The vast majority of those officers would go about their duties unarmed and act more as a mobile counseling service than anything else. A few trained and armed officers would be kept on hand in case of an emergency.There were some objections raised to the proposal initially, but the decision was made to proceed to the vote. In...

    President Donald Trump will withdraw the nomination of William Perry Pendley as director of the Bureau of Land Management in the face of criticism over Pendley’s anti-environmentalist views and advocacy for selling off federal lands. A White House official confirmed the news Saturday, a day after Outdoor Life broke the story. The decision is almost certainly influenced by the awkward position in which Pendley’s nomination put Republican Sens. Cory Gardner (Colo.) and Steve Daines (Mont.) ― two close Trump allies facing tough reelection bids. Both earned rare points with the conservation community with the passage of a major public lands...
  • 9th Circuit ends California ban on high-capacity magazines

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday threw out California’s ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines, saying the law violates the U.S. Constitution’s protection of the right to bear firearms. “Even well-intentioned laws must pass constitutional muster,” appellate Judge Kenneth Lee wrote for the panel’s majority. California’s ban on magazines holding more than 10 bullets “strikes at the core of the Second Amendment — the right to armed self-defense.” He noted that California passed the law “in the wake of heart-wrenching and highly publicized mass shootings,” but said that isn’t enough...

    Within the high plains and Rocky Mountains of Colorado lies the world’s epicenter of COVID-19. New Jersey and New York have experienced enough COVID deaths per million citizens to place them first and second on the list of countries hardest hit by the virus if they were independent nations (each has experienced around 1,700 COVID deaths for every 1,000,000 citizens). Even so, they’re nothing compared to Colorado. Italy, at near 600 deaths per million, would be a welcome relief relative to the devastation that awaits Colorado. This is because, in Colorado, the governor and his advisors say their policies are...
