  • Colorado Democrats kill bill to check Polis’s emergency powers

    State Senate Democrats put to a stop to all that accountability and transparency Republicans are demanding by killing their measure requiring public debate and justification before the governor can continually declare a state of emergency. Gov. Polis has had complete autonomous rule over Colorado for more than a year now, distributing hundreds of millions in federal aid without legislative input, oversight, or approval. The Democrat-controlled legislature has decided they like living under a dictatorship and defeated the measure in the Senate’s State, Veterans & Military Affairs committee. Sponsored by Republican state Sen. Paul Lundeen of Colorado Springs, it required the...

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - It appears someone is trying to take the law into their own hands by breaking the law. Both the Colorado State Patrol and Otero County Sheriff's Office are investigating reports of a white man allegedly pulling people over for breaking the stay at home order currently in place. The Otero County Sheriff's Office says no law enforcement agencies in their area are pulling people over for that reason. "Drivers have described a white male driving a black or dark-colored Dodge Charger with lights on the dash," the sheriff's office wrote on Facebook. "Legitimate Law Enforcement...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — Biology textbooks used in American high schools do not go near the sensitive question of whether genetics can explain why African-Americans are overrepresented as football players and why a disproportionate number of American scientists are white or Asian. But in a study starting this month, a group of biology teachers from across the country will address it head-on. They are testing the idea that the science classroom may be the best place to provide a buffer against the unfounded genetic rationales for human difference that often become the basis for racial intolerance. At a recent training in...

The day care had a licensed capacity of six children, according to May 2019 data on the Colorado Department of Human Services website. MORE AT LINK

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A revelatory cache of fossils dug up in central Colorado details as never before the rise of mammals from the post-apocalyptic landscape after an asteroid smacked Earth 66 million years ago and annihilated three-quarters of all species including the dinosaurs. The fossils, described by scientists on Thursday, date from the first million years after the calamity and show that the surviving terrestrial mammalian and plant lineages rebounded with aplomb. Mammals, after 150 million years of subservience, attained dominance. Plant life diversified impressively. With dinosaurs no longer eating them, mammals made quick evolutionary strides, assuming new forms and...

    President Donald Trump will deliver the Air Force Academy’s graduation speech on May 30, the White House confirmed Thursday. Trump bumped expected speaker Vice President Mike Pence from the podium for the ceremony in Falcon Stadium, where about 1,000 seniors will pin on the rank of 2nd lieutenant. It will be Trump’s first stop in Colorado Springs since his visit during the 2016 presidential campaign. **SNIP** Trump’s remarks haven’t been written, but addressing his push for a separate Space Force is a safe bet. Colorado Springs is home to the bulk of the military’s space troops and is in the...

Instead, the upcoming procurement will seek proposals for “a complete integrated lander” that includes an ascent module as well as a descent module and transfer stage. A formal call for proposals, part of NASA’s Next Space Technologies for Exploration Partnerships, or NextSTEP, program...
