    Diane Cox, A Democrat Party of New Mexico official from Albuquerque who sits on the Party’s State Central Committee, posted an article from The Atlantic titled “Trump is planning for a landslide win” on her Facebook post after 45th President Donald Trump narrowly missed a fatal head wound at a rally in Pennsylvania, where an assassin attempted to murder him. The assassin ended up killing at least one rally attendee and leaving others injured, including Trump, who was pierced in his right ear by a bullet. One of Cox’s connections, Angela Agosta, wrote, “And now he will be America’s hero...

    A secret recording was leaked on Friday showing New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham slamming Joe Biden's border policies, but not for the reason one might think. Her anger at the administration wasn't for not securing the border. Instead, her anger was being pointed at Border Patrol agents for doing their job and seizing drugs.
  • New Mexico Gov. Wants More Gun Control After Maine Shootings

    New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) reacted to the Wednesday night firearm-based attacks in Maine by calling for gun control. Grisham has been in the news recently for issuing an order banning concealed carry, even by licensed concealed carry permit holders, in larger New Mexico cities like Albuquerque. Her order banned the open carry of firearms too. She issued her order on September 8, 2023, and a U.S. District Judge blocked it on September 13, 2023. She then reworked the order, limiting the ban on concealed carry to parks and playgrounds and her order was allowed to stand.

    New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Friday narrowed an order that broadly suspended the right to carry firearms in and around Albuquerque to apply only to public parks and playgrounds where children and their families gather. The governor’s announcement came days after a federal judge blocked part of the order with criticism mounting over the Democratic governor’s action and legal challenges by gun-rights advocates.
  • A Blatantly Unconstitutional Gun Edict Highlights the Hazards of Emergency Powers

    09/13/2023 4:37:55 PM PDT · by lightman · 11 replies ^ | 13 September A.D. 2023 | Jacob Sullium
    When New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham issued "a public health emergency order" that purportedly suspended the right to bear arms in Albuquerque and surrounding Bernalillo County last week, her justification was seemingly straightforward. "I have emergency powers," she told The New York Times. "Gun violence is an epidemic. Therefore, it's an emergency." Grisham's stunt was widely condemned as blatantly unconstitutional, even by some leading gun control supporters. But her legal rationale also underlined the perils posed by the sweeping emergency powers that legislators in many states have granted governors -- a problem that was abundantly clear during the COVID-19...

    Oh, but you do, you do. Michelle Lujan Grisham got steamed yesterday when the Bernalillo County Sheriff declared her order suspending the US Constitution unlawful and refused to enforce the New Mexico governor’s edict to arrest people carrying firearms in an otherwise lawful manner. Sheriff John Allen, who apparently attended a civics class or two more than Lujan Grisham, went public with his refusal yesterday, and further stated that he’d tried to warn Lujan Grisham that she didn’t have the authority to issue the order: [snip] “I don’t need a lecture on constitutionality from Sheriff Allen: what I need is...

    Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Friday announced a new public health order that, she said, will ban people from carrying firearms, either open or concealed, in Albuquerque and throughout Bernalillo County for the next 30 days, regardless of whether they have a permit. Lujan Grisham, a Democrat, issued an executive order Thursday evening declaring gun violence a public health emergency. During a news conference Friday, she said she expects legal challenges to the public health order and expressed uncertainty about whether the order would prevail in court. The order states "no person, other than a law enforcement officer or licensed...

    The family of a 23-year-old Albuquerque woman shot dead by a 13-year-old when she confronted the thieves who stole her car on Monday is calling for the "maximum sentence" for the teen. Sydney Wilson faced off with a 13-year-old suspect after she tracked her stolen car to a Smith's grocery store and gas station in Southwest Albuquerque using a GPS app, her family said. The teen shot her in response, according to KOAT Action News, and she was pronounced dead at the scene by Albuquerque police. The minor turned himself in to authorities two days later, per the outlet, and...

    While appearing on CBS News’ Face the Nation Sunday, Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham doubled down on her pro-abortion stance, telling host Margaret Brennan ... “if we’re going to use the federal courts as a way to bar and ban access, we are looking at a national abortion ban and more. And I think states have to band together to do as much as they can in opposition to that.” “So, currently, in New Mexico, abortion is legal. But you don’t actually have a law codifying it. ... " said Brennan. Lujan Grisham responded, “We do—we do now. So the...

    On Saturday at noon, the New Mexico House and Senate adjourned from the 2023 Legislative Session. The adjournment meant the death of many anti-gun proposals that would have restricted citizens’ constitutional rights. Only one bill, H.B. 9, mandating the lockup of firearms, passed and was signed by Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. The dead gun-grabbing legislation includes S.B. 44 banning citizens from carrying a firearm within 100 feet of a polling place during an election, S.B. 428 targeting firearm retailers and manufacturers with frivolous lawsuits, H.B. 100 banning most firearms over 10-round capacity, and H.B. 101 mandating a 14-day waiting...

    New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham performed a cringe-worthy dance on stage Saturday at a pro-abortion rally celebrating her record of supporting abortion on demand. Elisa Martinez, founder of the New Mexico Alliance for Life, shared a video clip on Twitter that shows the Democrat governor and other abortion activists dancing at the outdoor event in Las Cruces. “What did I just watch? Oh – New Mexico’s Abortion Governor hopping around about killing innocent babies up to birth,” Martinez wrote. According to the Las Cruces Sun News, Grisham, who is up for re-election, was joined by two leading abortion activists:...

    New Mexico Gov.

During an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Ronchetti blasted Grisham for what he describes as a mix of lax immigration enforcement and a far-Left no-bail agenda that has culminated into a Catch and Release policy for criminals in New Mexico

    SANTA FE — Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed into law Friday a bill setting new political boundary lines for New Mexico’s three congressional districts for the next decade. The new congressional map, which was passed by state lawmakers on largely party-line votes with majority Democrats voting in favor, could reshape the political landscape in New Mexico. It splits Albuquerque into two different districts and moves some of southeast New Mexico, traditionally a conservative stronghold, into congressional districts now represented by U.S. Reps. Melanie Stansbury and Teresa Leger Fernandez, both Democrats. While a court challenge could still be filed against the...

    SANTA FE – The New Mexico Supreme Court has granted Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s request to halt at least three attempts to convene citizen-led grand juries for the purpose of investigating the governor’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. The petitions to convene citizen grand juries – filed in Eddy, Lea and Chaves counties – mark the latest challenges to the governor’s use of emergency public health orders to require face-mask wearing and impose business capacity limits in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus. New Mexico is one of just a few states that allows for citizen grand...

    New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) said on Wednesday she believes being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 means people must have a booster shot, The Associated Press reported. Grisham made the comments at a virtual pandemic briefing, saying that residents who received their last vaccination six months ago are causing an increasing number of COVID-19 cases. According to state data, at least 29 percent of the confirmed cases over the past four weeks were among vaccinated residents, even though unvaccinated people still make up the highest percentages of those who are hospitalized or die from the virus.

    Axios ^ | 11/19/21 | Caitlin Owens
    As health officials push COVID booster shots, a debate is quickly emerging around whether the definition of "fully vaccinated" should be changed to include an additional dose of the vaccine. Why it matters: Booster shots provide remarkably strong protection against coronavirus infections, at least for a period of time. But getting the majority of Americans to stick out their arm again would be extremely challenging. Driving the news: Two governors said this week that they don't consider people who haven't received a booster shot to be fully vaccinated. "We're 11 months into the vaccination program. In my view, if you...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — U.S. governors want a seat at the table as international leaders prepare to gather in Scotland at a critical moment for global efforts to reduce fossil fuel emissions and slow the planet’s temperature rise. At least a half dozen state governors — all Democrats — plan to attend parts of the two-week United Nation’s climate change conference in Glasgow, known as COP26. Though states aren’t official parties to talks, governors hold significant sway over the United States’ approach to tackling climate change by setting targets for reducing carbon emissions and transitioning to renewable energy. Governors slated...
