  • What it means for Colorado if Dems win the Senate and White House

    10/27/2020 7:06:37 AM PDT · by george76 · 7 replies
    U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner was asked what a U.S. Senate would look like if Democrats took control after the November election. Specifically, Fox News asked, what does a Senate ruled by presumptive Democrat Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York look like? Not so good for Colorado, Gardner responded. A ban on oil and gas, the destruction of hundreds of thousands of jobs in Colorado, massive tax increases, a regulatory overtake the likes of which we’ve never seen — it would undo the work that we did prior to the pandemic and building up our economy and prevent our economy...
  • Boebert crisscrosses Western Slope while Bush hides in basement ( Colorado )

    10/27/2020 7:02:23 AM PDT · by george76 · 11 replies
    In the last couple of weeks, congressional candidate Lauren Boebert has shown up in every corner of the vast 3rd District she is running to represent, while her opponent Diane Mitch Bush has yet to hold a single in-person event. Boebert has held rallies or events in Steamboat Springs, Alamosa, Durango, Delta, Pagosa Springs, Pueblo, Dolores and Montrose. She’s talked about her campaign, why she is running, and met with locals about what they need from a representative in Washington, D.C. On the other hand, Bush has phoned it in, literally, from her home in Steamboat Springs. Instead of traveling...

    As many as 60,000 people are being forced to flee their homes as a fast-moving brush fire raged through a large swath of Southern California early Monday, according to officials and news reports. The Silverado Fire flared up around 6:45 a.m. local time near the city of Irvine and has burned through 2,000 acres, prompting officials to declare a mandatory evacuation around 9 a.m., the Orange County Fire Authority said on Twitter. “The fire started in Silverado Canyon, and helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft are on the way,” Irvine Mayor Christina Shea said on the city website. “The wind is making...

    I posted this thread to focus on a mostly ignored state so far in the presidential/Senate/House race discussions. The Rocky Mountain State. No Trump rallies have come through here recently, which is curious to me given Sen. Cory Gardner's vulnerability and the fact that Trump only lost CO by <3 points four years ago. Plus AZ and NM border CO. So why the silence? Ground game: (Jul 2020 excerpt) The ground operation of the combined Republican campaign in Colorado — which goes by the team name "Silver Bullet Brigade" — dwarfs the GOP's field organization in previous cycles, with 46...

    Energy produced on federal lands and waters plays a critical role in America’s energy revolution, accounting for 12% of U.S. natural gas production and nearly a quarter of U.S. oil production. Here’s what’s projected to be at stake for U.S. energy leadership if a federal leasing and development ban is enacted according to new analysis prepared by OnLocation using EIA’s National Energy Modeling System (NEMS) which is used to produce their Annual Energy Outlook.

    The decision came following a lawsuit against federal and state officials for an array of religious freedom violations.. Two Colorado churches and their pastors are currently protected from the state’s enforcement of capacity limits and face masks during worship services thanks to an order handed down by a federal judge on October 15, 2020. This decision came following a lawsuit against federal and state officials for an array of religious freedom violations. Thomas More Society Special Counsel Rebecca Messall and co-counsel Brad Bergford, who are representing the congregations and their pastors, were pleased with the order. Messall reports a favorable...

    Public defender Valerie Cole also asked a judge during a brief court hearing to consider lowering Matthew Dolloff's $500,000 bond so he could have a chance of being released from jail. Dolloff was charged with second-degree murder Monday. Judge Shelley Gilman said she would leave a decision on bond to the judge who would be handling the case going forward. Dolloff appeared by video from jail, where he has been held since shooting 49-year-old Lee Keltner on Oct. 10 while being paid by KUSA-TV to protect its staffers who were covering a “Patriot Muster” demonstration and a "BLM-Antifa Soup Drive”...

    This case is not about one particular law, but the rule of law. California Assemblymen Kevin Kiley and James Gallagher are suing to stop California Governor Gavin Newsom’s “one man rule.” Kiley and Gallagher filed their most recent Trial Brief, and Gov. Gavin Newsom filed his. The trial will take place Wednesday, October 21, 2020 in Sutter County. The Michigan Supreme Court recently struck down the 1945 law that Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been using to keep the state in lockdown since April. And in September, a federal judge in Pennsylvania ruled that Governor Tom Wolf’s lockdown orders were unconstitutional,...

    The Cameron Peak fire, a few miles west of Fort Collins, Colorado, has engulfed over 200,000 acres and it's still growing. It has now become the biggest wildlife in Colorado history. This year Mother Nature has supplied us with smoking-gun evidence to prove what climate scientists have been warning about for decades. The scorched-earth impacts of climate change have arrived. In a letter the editor published in the journal Global Change Biology, two of the world's foremost experts on wildfires conclude that the "[r]ecord-setting climate enabled the extraordinary 2020 fire season in the western United States."

    Forty-nine-year-old Lee Keltner was fatally shot following a “Patriot Muster” protest last Saturday afternoon in downtown Denver, blocks from the Colorado Capitol near the Denver Art Museum. The shooter was an unlicensed security guard with documented far-left ties who was hired by Denver NBC News affiliate KUSA 9News. The story even garnered President Trump’s attention, with multiple retweets on Wednesday. On Thursday, Denver District Attorney Beth McCann, a Democrat, announced she will file second-degree murder charges against Dolloff. While first-degree murder charges in Colorado require evidence of planning and intent to kill, second-degree murder charges imply that “the person knowingly...

    The Post Millennial ^ | October 16, 2020 | Mia Cathell
    A bizarre investigative piece published by 9NEWS, the NBC affiliate that reportedly hired the unlicensed security guard who fatally shot a Trump supporter during a Denver "Patriot Rally," exposes the news station for contracting multiple unlicensed security guards.. An investigation self-run by the publication found that 30-year-old Matthew Dolloff—who is facing second-degree murder charges for the alleged killing of a conservative demonstrator during dueling Denver rallies on Saturday—is not the only non-credentialed security guard to accompany 9NEWS crews at riots during the past five months. In fact, Dolloff is one of five unlicensed security agents. Under a taunting "Training Matters"...

    A Democratic Party leader in Colorado says the 2020 election amounts to a "revolution," meaning lying, cheating and stealing are morally acceptable actions if they help bring about the defeat of President Trump in November. Kristopher Jacks, a member of the executive committee of the Colorado Democratic Party, expressed his beliefs in an undercover video released by Project Veritas. "I am going to do everything morally acceptable to win. I will lie. I will cheat. I will steal. Because that's morally acceptable in this political environment. Absolutely. We are pirates on a pirate ship," he said. "I want to make...

Mr. Jacks was caught on hidden-camera video by Project Veritas talking about using violence for political ends, pressuring a Biden administration to do the left’s bidding by occupying the White House, and musing about a hypothetical situation involving killing “three or four” billionaires, including Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. “2020 is a political revolution. I am going to do everything morally acceptable to win,” Mr. Jacks said in footage taken at a bar. “I will...

    Let your child nap in the car on a cool day while you run into the hardware store and you might have to say goodbye to your dreams of adoption. That's what happened to a Colorado couple we'll call Ted and Jen. (Their real names have been redacted to protect their identity.) Last spring, Ted's three-year-old fell asleep on his way to Ace Hardware. He parked where he could still see her as he entered the store, and was gone for just 20 minutes. It was 40 degrees outside, according to Jen. A passerby called the cops, because many people...

    The unlicensed security guard who shot and killed a Navy veteran at a Patriot Muster rally attended Occupy Denver protests and shared far-left opinions on social media, has learned. Matthew Dolloff's ex-girlfriend spoke to exclusively on Tuesday, sharing her shock at the news of his involvement in Saturday's fatal shooting along with several details about their time together. The ex-girlfriend, who asked to remain anonymous, dated Dolloff right out of high school from 2010 to 2013. During that time they were both heavily involved in Occupy Denver - the local branch of Occupy Wall Street - and spent...

  • Criminal charges possible against TV station that hired shooter as guard 'For permitting or directing an unlicensed person to perform security services'

    The fatal shooting in Denver of Lee Keltner, 49, during a clash between competing rallies over the weekend is just one of many in recent months amid Black Lives Matter protests since the death of George Floyd. But the shooting of Keltner may have a longer reach than others since he had been hired by a Denver television station, KUSA-TV, to act as a security guard for reporters at the events. The Denver City Attorney's office said that when the homicide investigation is concluded, the case might not be over. "Licensed security guard employers that hire unlicensed security guards could...
