    Local officials in Colorado acknowledged "very serious" voter fraud after learning of votes cast in multiple elections under the named of recently-deceased residents. A local media outlet uncovered the fraud by comparing voting history databases in the state with federal government death records. "Somebody was able to cast a vote that was not theirs to cast," El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman told CBS4 while discussing what he called a "very serious" pattern of people mailing in ballots on behalf of the dead. It's not clear how many fraudulent ballots have been submitted in recent years. CBS4 reported...

    A CBS4 investigation has found multiple cases of dead men and women voting in Colorado months and in some cases years after their deaths, a revelation that calls into question safeguards designed to prevent such occurrences. “We do believe there were several instances of potential vote fraud that occurred,” said Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams after reviewing the CBS4 findings. “It shows there is the potential for fraud.” The cases of dead men and women casting ballots ranged from El Paso County in southern Colorado to Denver and Jefferson County. CBS4 discovered the fraudulent voting by comparing databases of...

A genuine speech that came from the heart, not from notes or teleprompters. The crowd was great. Even Trump Jr can pack a house far better than Hitlery. This deplorable had a blast, and can't wait to help deliver Colorado to our next President! Apologies for the fuzziness of the pics. Dang phone ain't so smart after all.

    Authorities have arrested 14 Chinese nationals in connection with an alleged illegal pot grow involving more than 3,000 plants east of Rifle (Colorado). Authorities are investigating whether human trafficking using forced labor was involved in the operation off Mile Pond Road, north of the Colorado River. The local multijurisdictional Two Rivers Drug Enforcement Team, or TRIDENT, and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration have been heading up the investigation. The arrests were made Monday. Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario said the grow was occurring on a couple acres of a roughly 35- or 40-acre property. The property owner hasn’t been arrested...

    JonBenet Ramsey was killed by her older brother Burke and it was covered up by her parents after a fight over a midnight snack of pineapples, investigators have claimed. The six-year-old's mother Patsy Ramsey called 911 on December 26, 1996 to report that her six-year-old daughter had been kidnapped from her family's home in Boulder, Colorado. JonBenet, a child beauty queen, was found beaten and strangled on the floor of the family's cellar several hours after the 911 call.

    BOSTON, MA – In the first national poll conducted by Emerson College during this general election season, the presidential race is looking like a dead heat, with Donald Trump edging out Hillary Clinton 43% to 41%, well within the poll’s 3.4% margin of error (MOE). Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson holds 9% of the popular vote, and the Green Party’s Jill Stein gets 2%. Eight in 10 (81%) of voters surveyed nationally were aware that Clinton was recently diagnosed with pneumonia, a revelation that appears to be hurting her with some voters.

    The survey finds strong opposition to Amendment 69, the ColoradoCare universal healthcare plan. Among all respondents, 27% would vote yes and approve the amendment, 65% would vote no and reject it, and 8% of voters are undecided. 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. Among all voters...

    Election 2014 displayed one of the most incredible switches of U.S. Senate control in recent memory. 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...

Neither wise nor forthright, they make up for it by being both devious and persistent. In 1990, with a greater than 70 percent vote, Rocky Mountain State citizens enacted a term limits initiative constitutional amendment. Two years later, voters narrowly enacted the Taxpayer Bill of Rights by initiative, requiring for any new tax or significant spending increase a vote of assent from the people. And in 2013, after the Colorado Legislature passed controversial legislation restricting gun rights, people...

The 28 families of those killed and wounded in the July 2012 shooting sued Cinemark, the movie chain that owns the Century 16 where James Holmes opened fire during a showing of “The Dark Knight Rises,” claiming that there wasn’t adequate security to stop Holmes from carrying out the attack. An Arapahoe County civil jury ruled in May that Cinemark wasn’t liable for the shooting that left 12 people dead and 70 others. Lawyers for Cinemark then...

The concern comes after a new revelation about potentially forged signatures on one of the petitions. This is the second fraud investigation into a ballot initiative process so far this year, and the situation has raised serious questions about Colorado’s petition process.

    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...

    The Loathsome Cowboy rides again. Ken Salazar, President Obama's disgraced ex-interior secretary and former U.S. senator from Colorado, was named Hillary Clinton's White House transition chair on Monday. The pick confirms that a Clinton presidency would not only be Barack Obama's third term ideologically, but also culturally. As in the Democratic culture of corruption. Ken Salazar is a thug. Before stepping down as Obama's interior secretary in 2013 "to spend time with family," Salazar threatened violence against a local Colorado Springs Gazette reporter who had the audacity to challenge one of the ten-gallon hat-wearing bureaucrat's cronyism-tainted deals. At issue: How...

    They came in buses, from Utah and elsewhere, excited to help elect Mitt Romney in 2012. Spanish-speaking Mormon volunteers — former missionaries at ease making phone calls, knocking doors, and pitching strangers on the street — were a unique resource for the Republican nominee in the key southwest swing states. In East Las Vegas, a Latino working-class neighborhood where the Romney campaign opened the first Republican office, around 10% of the volunteers were Spanish-speaking Mormons, according to former Romney aides. Outreach efforts in Colorado were similarly infused with bilingual Latter-day Saints. Romney’s hardline immigration stance made the candidate a tough...

But if you stop by one of the Commerce City’s elementary schools in Colorado on weekends, you would be surprised to find that Protégete, the Latino outreach arm of the environmental organization Conservation Colorado, was providing free U.S. citizenship workshops to immigrants, including helping them fill out citizenship applications and making copies of documents needed.Interestingly, according to a Colorado Public Radio (CPR) report, most immigrants who attended had no idea that Conservation Colorado organized these workshops because volunteers/representatives from the group kept a very...

    Democrat Hillary Clinton leads Republican Donald Trump in some of the most diverse battleground states - including by double digits in two of them - according to four brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls. In the key battleground of Florida, which President Obama won in 2008 and 2012, Clinton is ahead of Trump by five points among registered voters, 44 percent to 39 percent, with the rest saying neither, other or they're undecided. (In the same poll before the conventions last month, it was Clinton 44 percent, Trump 37 percent.)

    The BLM released its draft environmental impact statement Thursday. It is proposing amending up to 11 resource management plans in the two states. In 2014, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service determined the Gunnison sage-grouse requires listing as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. ... about 5,000 breeding Gunnison sage-grouse live in the two states. Some 4,000 live in the Gunnison Basin, and the others in six satellite populations in Colorado and a seventh in Utah. ... Fish and Wildlife pointed to the low numbers of birds in the other populations and their range of habitat threats as...

    Colorado’s labor department has ruled that more than 100 Muslim workers fired from a Cargill meatpacking plant are eligible for unemployment benefits because a company cannot force workers to choose between their religion and their jobs. The workers filed for unemployment payments after they were fired in December by Cargill Meat Solutions, amid a dispute over whether the Muslim employees could take prayer breaks during their shifts. Cargill challenged the claims, but the company withdrew its appeals this summer after losing 20 cases, officials with the state Department of Labor said. ... the payments could cost Colorado’s unemployment fund nearly...

    DENVER -- A Highlands Ranch man who says he was “disgusted” by Donald Trump’s comments about the mother of a Muslim U.S. Army Captain killed in Iraq, said he wants to do something about it. Mike Sexton is asking people to show up at Fort Logan National Cemetery at 10 a.m. Sunday, to place flowers, or other tokens of appreciation, on the graves of Muslim soldiers. He told Denver7 that if they can’t find any Muslim graves, they’ll place the flowers on graves of people who were different from them. “For me, it may be Latino,” he said, “since I...

    DENVER -- Hillary Clinton's campaign is riding high. Polls show she's way ahead with women, minorities and college educated voters -- a coalition that's fundamentally large and strong enough to send her to the White House. But Donald Trump is a wild card of a candidate if there ever was one. So as her campaign looks to the election's final 90 days, cementing her victory in November is becoming all about one group of voters: White men who haven't gone to college. Clinton campaign aides know the former secretary of state won't win them overall. President Obama lost badly with...

    The Democratic Party’s top donors are pouring money into Colorado political groups, drawing attention to state legislative contests and ballot fights that could affect the redrawing of key congressional districts, public records show. Billionaire hedge fund managers George Soros and Tom Steyer are steering money to Colorado state senate candidates, while the Democracy Alliance, a leading left-wing donor club created ten years ago by four wealthy Colorado Democrats, provides financing for an interconnected network of Democrat-aligned political groups. Campaign finance data reveals how the Alliance and its top donors are implementing a strategy conceived last year to retake power at...

    This year, Aurora City Council doled out $864,239 in nexus funds among five nonprofits, awarding the most money to nonprofits identified by Aurora police as the most helpful to law enforcement. Aurora nonprofits that receive funding through the city’s “nexus” program dodged a legislative bullet this year, but that won’t prevent city lawmakers from taking a closer look at how the money is being spent. Six nonprofit groups in Aurora receiving money from photo red-light enforcement were relieved after Gov. John Hickenlooper vetoed legislation this year that would have created a statewide ban on the cameras. But how that money...
