    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...

    Despite their roots in reality, there is no doubt that these crises -- and the White House and Senate's attempts to tackle them -- would be reported differently if Hillary Clinton were president. It took more than five years, but the corporate media finally have the tools and strategy to successfully defeat President Donald Trump.The corporate media have these, mind you, despite the Democratic Party, whose foibles, stumbles, and misfires over those same five years have only complicated efforts, kicking off with a disastrous 2016 defeat and eventually culminating in a near-invisible and increasingly senile presidential candidate stumbling through a...

    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...

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...

    The Civil War monument erected in 1909 outside Colorado’s Capitol that commemorated, in part, the Sand Creek Massacre was toppled overnight, the latest act by protesters across the nation to tear down statues honoring perpetrators of racist acts. Trooper Gary Cutler, spokesman for Colorado State Patrol, which polices the Capitol grounds, said “individuals” brought the statue down around 1:30 a.m. Thursday. He wouldn’t say how many were involved or whether their identities are known. The case has been turned over to the Denver Police Department. “It was up yesterday and it was down today,” said Doug Platt, communications manager at...
  • Juneteenth marchers met by counter-protesters motorcyclists in Rifle

    On Friday evening, peaceful Black Lives Matter chants were shadowed by the deafening roar of motorcycle engines as counter-protestors — including some who were open-carrying firearms — followed the marchers on their route down Railroad Avenue to the Rifle Police Department. The march was organized on Juneteenth, the oldest celebration in the U.S. commemorating the end of slavery. It was the second time this month that several hundred protesters gathered in Rifle at City Hall. But unlike the June 2 vigil, Friday’s event was met by a significant counter-protest. As BLM supporters gathered in the plaza near city hall, several...
