    In a campaign appearance Saturday in Youngstown, Ohio Chelsea Clinton suggested that marijuana has the ability to kill. ... As Trump surges in the all-important battleground state of Colorado, Clinton’s comments could hinder her mother’s ability to reach out to a large group of voters who support the legalization of the same “drug” that Clinton lied about. The most current Colorado poll shows Trump and Clinton in a dead heat. Only one point separates the two candidates. According to a CNN/ORC poll, “In Colorado, likely voters break 42% for Trump, 41% for Clinton, 13% for Libertarian Gary Johnson and 3%...

    It's been months since the passing of conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, but Democrats are still seemingly celebrating his death because it paves the way for their political purposes. At The Atlantic’s Washington Ideas Forum on Thursday, Labor Secretary Tom Perez casually noted that Scalia's death helped pave the way for union membership across the country. ... Unfortunately, Perez's comments are not isolated. In August, Ohio Senate Candidate Ted Strickland actually said “the death of Scalia saved labor” at an AFL-CIO event.

    Voters in five battleground states declared Hillary Clinton the winner of this week’s debate against Donald Trump, boosting her fortunes in those key races, a new poll showed Thursday. A majority of voters in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia all told Public Policy Polling that Clinton got the better of Trump in their first showdown. The Public Policy poll was taken Tuesday and Wednesday, giving voters at least one night to digest Monday’s slugfest at Hofstra University. Clinton’s debate also helped her bounce to leads in all five states, according to the poll. In four-way races that include...

    They'll strenuously deny it, I'm sure -- and it does seem a bit far-fetched that a deeply-funded campaign would abandon 18 precious electoral votes in a state in which their candidate is within the margin of error. Then again, Trump has led in five of the last six statewide polls in Buckeyeland -- and actions speak louder than words. National Democrats are pulling up stakes in Ohio's Senate race, and now CNN notes that the state has been conspicuously absent on Hillary's travel schedule lately. "So long Ohio?" Hmmm: “It’s been 20 days since Hillary Clinton stepped foot into this...

    There were two sightings of Western yellow-billed cuckoos this year, both in Delta County, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said. The secretive birds are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is considering designating parts of western Colorado as critical habitat for the migratory bird, including lands along the Colorado River through Mesa County. Sightings — which frequently involve people hearing the cuckoo’s distinctive “klak-klak” sound — have been recorded in Mesa and Delta counties in previous years. ... “We have changed the initial map due to comments from the proposed...

A local media outlet uncovered the fraud by comparing voting history databases in the state with federal government death records.

It's not clear how many fraudulent ballots have been submitted in recent years. CBS4 reported...

Intensity is very strong among voters who oppose the amendment, with 45% of respondents saying they definitely intend to vote no. Only 10% of respondents definitely intend to vote yes. Not surprisingly, support for Amendment 69 is strongest among Democrats and voters aged 18 to 34. However, slightly more Democrats oppose the amendment than support it, 45% to 41% respectively.

The Republicans did not just take back the upper chamber—they wiped the floor with the Democrats. They bested some of their pettiest political tricks, including three different Democratic candidates in Montana, plus three-way races in other states. Nothing can top Election Day 1980, which produced a Republican majority with 12 Senate wins. Election Day 2014 produced nine seats, but could have been 11 if not for the intense infighting in Republican primaries. So, will 2016 turn into an epic landslide of the Democrats and...

    We will not, at any time, debate the science of climate change’ Three professors co-teaching an online course called “Medical Humanities in the Digital Age” at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs recently told their students via email that man-made climate change is not open for debate, and those who think otherwise have no place in their course. “The point of departure for this course is based on the scientific premise that human induced climate change is valid and occurring. We will not, at any time, debate the science of climate change, nor will the ‘other side’ of the climate change...

    If a pair of extreme green ballot measures fall in the Rocky Mountains and no one in the liberal media is paying attention, does the collapse make a sound? This week, two anti-fracking initiatives backed by deep-pocketed environmental lobbying heavyweights, such as the Sierra Club and Greenpeace, failed to gather enough signatures. The more draconian of the efforts, Initiative 78, would have imposed a mandatory 2,500-foot setback around all oil and gas operations -- essentially halting drilling in upward of 95 percent of Colorado's energy-rich land area. These drastic attempts to sabotage the oil and gas industry didn't just miss...

    Roll Call ^ | Aug 29, 2016 8:42 AM | Eric Garcia
    The Republican Senate candidate in Colorado has been trailing Sen. Michael Bennet in recent polls but he is hoping for some "Labor Day magic." Darryl Glenn has consistently lagged behind Bennet by double digits in one of the few competitive Senate seats that Democrats are defending this cycle. Glenn won his five-way primary race in June after the campaign of former state Rep. Jon Keyser imploded. “I’m just not sure what happened here,” veteran Republican communications consultant Sean Duffy told The Denver Post. “You would think that a gentleman with his oratorical skills and background … you would think there...

    BOE Report ^ | August 29, 201611:50 AM | Michael Bastasch
    Colorado officials identified “several potentially forged signature lines” on a failed ballot anti-fracking ballot measure pushed by environmental activists to restrict drilling inside state lines. Officials said “No. 78,” a measure calling for a 2,500-foot setback on hydraulic fracturing, may have had forged signatures, and Colorado State Department officials “referred the questionable section to the Attorney General’s office for investigation.” Secretary of State Wayne Williams announced Monday that “two proposed ballot measures aimed at adding more limitations on oil and natural gas drilling in Colorado failed to make the November ballot because supporters didn’t collect enough valid voter signatures.” Both...

    Right now, something historic is happening in Colorado - the rise of conservative black Republicans. Yet few other than those carefully paying attention are aware that the Republican Party is literally making U.S. history in the Centennial State because local and national media have placed the story on blackout.

    .washington examiner ^ | 8/26/16 | John Siciliano
    The Environmental Protection is admitting to a spill from a treatment plant it set up after it dumped 3 million gallons of toxic wastewater into a Colorado river last year. The EPA said Thursday night that the spill happened on Tuesday, and officials are still attempting to determine how much and what metals were contained in the sludgy discharge, ... The Navajo Nation sued the agency over the spill last week after the EPA inspector general and the Justice Department opened a criminal investigation into the incident a few days before the Aug. 5 anniversary of the 2015 spill. The...

    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials improperly withheld information from The Daily Caller News Foundation confirming its reporting that the contractor responsible for the August 2015 Gold King Mine spill was awarded nearly $2.7 million not long after the disaster. The EPA internally acknowledged the award and crafted a response to TheDCNF’s finding, according to emails obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, but the response was never sent to the news organization. (RELATED: Feds Obstruct Media Probe By Blocking Interviews With Key Officials) “It just slipped through the cracks,” EPA spokeswoman Melissa Harrison told TheDCNF 32 minutes after deadline. “It...
