  • Silverman: How Hick hides his left side

    Complete Colorado ^ | 30 September 2014 | Craig Silverman
    Prior to its inevitable endorsement of the incumbent Democrat, the Denver Post produced profiles of Bob Beauprez and John Hickenlooper. The stories were interesting from start to finish. It was fascinating to read what was included, and what was not. Bob’s started with his faith in G-d. Hick’s started with his new stray dog. Hick’s profile ended with him attending the book signing event of his estranged wife, Helen Thorpe. Bob’s profile ended with words of love and devotion from his biggest fan, his wife Claudia Beauprez. Bob is described as a devout Catholic with limited exceptions regarding abortion. Neither...

    The fears of major health organizations have come true: Gonorrhea that is immune to the last remaining effective oral antibiotic has been detected in at least nine North American patients, meaning the era of "incurable" gonorrhea could be close.

    The Denver Post ^ | 09/05/2010
    Voters deserve to know how much of John Hickenlooper's charity has been to political groups like the Chinook Fund. The protest group Re-create 68 was one of the biggest annoyances in the long run-up to Denver's hosting the 2008 Democratic National Convention. And now we find out that a non-profit the mayor of Denver helped establish years ago actually funded Re-create 68 as it tried to disrupt the mayor's greatest challengepulling off the DNC. The 2010 gubernatorial race just keeps getting stranger. Re-create 68 caused Denver officials months of headaches, and the group's over-the-top comments contributed to fears that cost...
  • Unrepentant terror leader to be released in Germany (Min. sentence for 9 murders, 11 attempts)

    Christian Klar, now 56, will walk out of jail after 26 years on January 3 after a court ruling. The decision comes despite earlier demands that he make an apology for his murderous crimes still not being met. Klar is portrayed in 'The Baader-Meinhof Complex' which is currently playing in British cinemas. The movie documents the crimes of the urban terrorists before they took the name RAF and it has been heavily criticised in Germany, particularly by the families of victims, for portraying him and his cohorts as 'cool' and their methods justified. Klar has shown no repentance for...

    Campus Report ^ | September 04, 2008 | Bethany Stotts
    Churchill’s Ministry of Peace by: Bethany Stotts, September 04, 2008 Ward Churchill, a former ethnic studies professor at the University of Colorado (UC), may have been fired after a UC investigation revealed his plagiarism and poor scholarship, but some anti-war outlets still court the controversial professor’s company. Churchill has shown himself to be more than willing to equate the September 11, 2001 attacks with the death of infants in the Iraq War and to label the victims of the 9/11 attacks as “little Eichmanns.” During a 2006 interview on Hannity & Colmes, Churchill defended his comments, arguing that they were...

    Denver: Is there such a thing as wanting to be clapped into the clink? Yes, if the riot-baiting actions of Denver's protesters are to be believed. Just remember: They differ from Democrats only in degree.Funny how radicals are always more angry with Democrats than with Republicans, their theoretically ideological rivals. It seems to be the fury of lovers scorned. As with all such "love," however, it comes from closeness. This is probably the only explanation for why 4,000 self-described anarchists, revolutionaries, direct-action radicals and assorted wackos made their presence known at the Democratic Convention last week. For sure, a sizable...

    For those Democrats who are too young to have a proper appreciation of their party's history, which likely includes most of Senator Obama's supporters, we direct your attention to a memorable moment in DNC history that shows how the current nominee really is connected to the party's past as much as its future. It was forty years ago today that Barack Obama friend and political ally, and unrepentant terrorists, William Ayers was arrested while protesting the DNC proceedings. William Ayers set no bombs that day, but he was only working his way up from petty criminal to domestic terrorist. And...

    Most people savvy about political matters will know that the leftists will be protesting outside of both conventions this year, as they always do. There will be tear gas, mass arrests, and—as always—there won't be any conservatives involved. We will be keeping a tally of major riot/protest events each day. The MSM will make it difficult, of course, as they have to do their best to shield the Democrats from a 1968 effect. Day 3(scroll for Days 1 and 2) You know, surprisingly enough, there wasn't much in the way of confrontation on Wednesday. Oh sure, there was a...

    Fox News Channel isn't always getting fair and balanced treatment from protesters at the Democratic National Convention this week in Denver. In at least two instances this week, Fox News -- which is often accused of conservative leanings despite its "Fair and Balanced" claim -- was under siege by DNC protesters. On Sunday, Fox reporter Griff Jenkins was doing a live shot of what he described as a 1,000-person antiwar protest march, when things went awry. In the shot, which is still getting heavy play on YouTube.com, Jenkins attempts to ask some of the marchers what they were protesting. He...

The hard-core left vowed to turn out 50,000 protesters for the Democratic National Convention this week. They pledged to "Re-create '68" and cause the kind of tear-gas-infused revolutionary havoc that marked the DNC in Chicago four decades ago. Police prepared for the worst riots. Media from around the world anticipated the best pictures. But when rhetorical push came to real-life shove, the nostalgic, Marxadoring organizers of Re-create '68 seem to have...

Saundier, told me that the behavior of the police at the Mint on Monday was not acceptable procedure, and he invited both Michelle and me to file charges. In addition, after the convention is over, he invited me to file an internal affairs complaint. We’ll be sending them links to the video and our coverage...

    A 22-year-old Massachusetts man was arrested Monday after police saw him carrying a bottle filled with feces, according to a police report. Zachary Patrick Grey, a University of Massachusetts student from Marion, Ma., was arrested at 1:40 p.m. Monday following a foot chase, according to a Denver County Court complaint. He was the first known person to be charged with possessing bodily waste during the DNC, though the threat of its use has been rumored by police and protesters alike for weeks leading up to the event. "It's disgusting for anyone to throw that at anyone," said Denver Police Lt....
