    GREELEY, Colo. (CBS4) – A team of scientists at the University of Northern Colorado believe venom from venomous snakes could carry the cure to cancer. Dr. Stephen Mackessy, professor at UNC’s School of Biology, says studies show venoms in different snakes can attack human cancer cells in unique ways. (credit: CBS) To conduct the study, Mackessy’s students are given access to hundreds of snakes from around the world, all of which are stored in a secured facility on the campus of UNC. From rattlesnakes to vipers, the students are able to extract venom from each snake to study the compounds...

    A transgender teenager has pleaded guilty to murder after opening fire on fellow students who he says bullied him. Alec McKinney faces a life sentence over the shooting rampage at the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) School near Denver, Colorado, that left one student dead and injured eight more on May 7. McKinney's friend Devon Erickson, 19, is also accused of carrying out the attack, and pleaded not guilty last month to the same charges of murder and attempted murder. Kendrick Castillo, an 18-year-old pupil at the school in Highlands Ranch, was fatally shot when he charged one of...

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced that eight Iowa counties have more voter registrations than their eligible voting-age population. According to Judicial Watch’s analysis of data released by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) in 2019 and the most recent U.S. Census Bureau’s five-year American Community Survey, eight Iowa counties are on the list of 378 counties nationwide that have more voter registrations than citizens living there who are old enough to vote, i.e., counties where registration rates exceed 100%. These 378 counties combined had about 2.5 million registrations over the 100%-registered mark. In Iowa, there are at least...
  • <Strong>Elizabeth Warren and Ward Churchill: Birds of a Headdress Feather</strong">

    10/11/2019 8:36:34 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | October 11, 2019 | William Marshall
    Senator Elizabeth Warren belongs to an elite club of American professors who have risen to academic heights through a fraudulent claim of Native American ancestry. In fact, it’s such an elite club that I can only think of one other known member: Ward Churchill. Remember Ward Churchill? He was a professor of ethnic studies (of all things) who claimed to be of Creek, Muskogee and Cherokee descent. Problem was, the admixture of Indian blood tended to shift with the telling. By one account in 1992, he said he was one-eighth Creek and one-sixteenth Cherokee. In another version, in 1993, he...

    FORT COLLINS, Colo. — A perjury charge has been filed against Susan Holmes, the woman who recently tried to use Colorado’s new “red flag” law to have a Colorado State University officer’s weapons confiscated. Earlier this month, Holmes filed an extreme risk protection order against Cpl. Phillip Morris. It was denied. Morris shot and killed Holmes’ son in 2017. The district attorney found the shooting to be “clearly justified.” A petition for an extreme risk protection order requires the petitioner to have a connection to the respondent, such as being a blood relative, a marriage or domestic partner, or having...

    DENVER (CBS4)– Sen. Cory Gardner is among the senators questioning President Donald Trump’s attorneys and house managers in the impeachment trial. The Republican senator from Colorado said he doesn’t believe the Senate needs to hear from more witnesses. “I do not believe we need to hear from an 18th witness. I have approached every aspect of this grave constitutional duty with the respect and attention required by law, and have reached this decision after carefully weighing the House managers and defense arguments and closely reviewing the evidence from the House, which included well over 100 hours of testimony from 17...

    Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials confirmed at least six wolves were spotted in Moffat County, the northwestern most corner of the state. The pack was found about two miles from a trail of wolf tracks they discovered earlier this month. The discovery is notable: It's the first pack spotted in Colorado for nearly 100 years. Colorado Governor Jared Polis said he's honored to welcome the animals back to the state after "their long absence." "While lone wolves have visited our state periodically including last fall, this is very likely the first pack to call our state home since the 1930s,"...

    An Australian runner found an unpleasant surprise while running on Monday near his home in New South Wales. Paul Roberts, 42, was doing run-walk intervals at Lake Macquarie State Conservation Park. when he saw what looked like a man-made pile of leaves along the trail. Though not heavily populated, the trail does get foot and bike traffic, which is why Roberts was shocked when he kicked off the top of the leaves and found wine corks with nails through them. These are similar to historic weapons known as caltrops. At first, Roberts said he didn’t think much of his initial...

    Weeks after J.K. Rowling expressed disdain for a British employer firing an employee for stating sex is binary, another employer—this time in the U.S.—allegedly fired a freelance columnist for saying there are only two sexes. Jon Caldara, a regular columnist for The Denver Post, announced Jan. 17 in a Facebook post that the publication had fired him for his traditional, but apparently offensive and “insensitive,” beliefs about sex and gender. An editor’s note posted Jan.21 at The Denver Post confirmed Megan Schrader, editor of The Denver Post’s editorial pages, decided the publication no longer would run Caldara’s weekly freelance column,...

  • Schumer Whiffs Impeachment: The Democratic leader succeeds only in unifying the Republican caucus.

    ... Mr. Schumer nonetheless had an opportunity to do what Democrats keep pretending to do: Take the proceedings seriously. Had he reached out to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to work on an agreement—had he privately spoken of the need for the Senate to come together and publicly refrained from partisan jabs—he’d have had an audience. Republican senators—in particular those up for re-election or retiring—don’t want to be accused of bias. As of last weekend, enough GOP senators to matter were still on the fence about Democratic demands for more witnesses. Not so much anymore. Mr. Schumer managed to annoy them,...

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is prepared to go to court with two "sanctuary cities," New York City, New York, and Denver, Colorado, if they fail to provide personal information on illegal immigrants with criminal records released in each city instead of being transferred to ICE. “We expect them to comply" with subpoenas for the information, said acting ICE Director Matt Albence at a press conference in Washington on Thursday. "If they don’t comply, we’ll be working with DOJ to go to district court to force them to comply with the requirements,” Albence said, noting the rule in the U.S....

    The strange flying objects have been spotted near F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming, which houses enough nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles to wipe out several cities. For weeks, mysterious unidentified flying objects over the Eastern Plains region of Colorado have vexed residents, law enforcement, the military, and state and federal officials. Those who see them say they appear in the night sky, often several at a time, their locations marked by the light they emit. Audibly buzzing, they hover and maneuver in precise formations. The mystery of their origin has gripped Colorado, where news of a sighting makes near-daily...

    Rep. Jason Crow, D-Colo., one of the seven Democratic impeachment managers prosecuting President Trump before the Senate, accused Trump of attempting to commit bribery in his dealings with Ukraine, but when asked why this was not one of the articles of impeachment, he did not appear to have an explanation. Bribery is one of the specific offenses mentioned in the Constitution’s discussion of impeachment. The House impeached Trump for alleged abuse of power -- itself is not a statutory crime – and obstruction of Congress, but Crow insisted Sunday that the president was still guilty of attempted bribery. “Yeah, specifically...

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has subpoenaed Denver law enforcement for information on four foreign nationals wanted for deportation and could expand the unusual practice to other locations. It’s an escalation of the conflict between federal officials and so-called sanctuary cities. If the city officials don’t respond, ICE, the Homeland Security agency responsible for arresting and deporting people in the U.S. illegally, could take the subpoena to a federal judge, who can order compliance and find them in contempt if they don’t comply. “Since we have no cooperation at the Denver justice center, we are modifying our tactics to produce...
