    The Colorado Springs Gazette ^ | December 3, 2016 | Rachel Riley and The Associated Press
    Four of Colorado's nine Electoral College electors plan to challenge a state law that would prevent a long-shot bid to keep President-elect Donald Trump out of the White House. Robert Nemanich, of Colorado Springs, said Saturday he and three other electors intend to sue Colorado's governor, attorney general, secretary of state and state Democratic Party chairman claiming state law requiring electors to vote for the presidential and vice presidential candidates "who received the highest number of votes at the preceding general election in this state," is unconstitutional....

    In fact, 2016 tax receipts were up in mountain towns now that the bicycle race is gone. Aspen, Steamboat, and Breckenridge all saw increased tax collections in August, a year after the race shut down their towns for a few hours. So it turns out it was all spin by PR hacks and the the state’s tourism office, who bragged about how “amped” that Coloradans were to have this bike race – so “amped” that the race went out of business and failed to deliver any tax boost to the communities it impacted.

    American Thinker ^ | November 29, 2016 | Jan LaRue
    Denver Sheriff Patrick Firman made an executive decision that deputy sheriff applicants should be U.S. citizens. U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Department of Justice, which claims to employ only U.S. citizens, would have none of it. Thus, the DOJ announced on Nov. 21 that it has shaken down another local law enforcement agency by settling an “immigration-related discrimination claim against the Denver Sheriff Department.” Perhaps Firman thought that spending significant time and resources to properly train his deputies, who swear an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution, Colorado’s Constitution, and local laws, carry firearms, and are authorized to use deadly...

    It was never tested on humans but is now being manufactured and sold by clandestine labs in Asia. "These synthetic opioids are so potent you essentially have to dilute it by mixing it in with heroin or something else because it's too powerful," he said. Thirty-one states have reported overdose deaths from U-47700. That includes Colorado, where two people were killed in Boulder County in January. But it was a case in Utah that thrust the drug into the national spotlight. Two 13-year-olds overdosed and died after buying the drug from a classmate who purchased it online. Hospitals are also...

    The intention, Denver officials said, was benevolent. The Denver Sheriff’s Department set out to hire scores of deputies last year to lessen the burden on its staff and cut millions in overtime. It advertised for prospects, and included U.S. citizenship as a requirement. By this past spring, it had hired 200 deputies. The Justice Department did not congratulate the agency – instead, it slapped Colorado’s largest sheriff’s department with a $10,000 fine and a host of steps it must take to address what was described as discriminatory hiring. In a summary of the settlement on its website, the Justice Department...

    Last week, the Obama Administration canceled twenty-five of western Colorado’s natural gas leases, ten years after issuance. The lease cancellation announcement was made in a special fly-over Denver press conference, demonstrating true political blindness in the face of a huge political defeat during this month’s elections. The Administration was denied a third term because of the mockery they have made over the past eight years of property rights at the expense of our rural communities. ...

    The Justice Department reached a settlement this week with the Denver Sheriff Department, after they allegedly discriminated against work-authorized immigrants by only considering the applications of U.S. citizens. “The Denver Sheriff Department discriminated based on citizenship status by requiring applicants for deputy sheriff positions to be U.S. citizens and publishing job postings with U.S. citizenship requirements, in violation of the INA (Immigration and Nationality Act),” a statement from the DOJ reads.  INA prohibits employers from limiting jobs to U.S. citizens (except where they are required to do so by law).

The “Resistance and Revolution” class is co-taught by history lecturer Jared Benson and sociology instructor Nicholas Lee, who also suggest that it was Mikhail Gorbachev – not Ronald Reagan — who brought down the collapse of the Soviet Union, and that wealthy CEOs deserve to be in a “moral prison,” among many other assertions.

    Republicans took the lead in early voting in Colorado at the end of the day Friday and held the advantage through the weekend despite robust Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts. The latest early voting numbers released Monday morning show registered Republicans cast 652,380 ballots compared to 645,020 registered Democrats — a 7,360 vote advantage. The breakdown looks like this: 35.2 percent Republican, 34.8 percent Democrat and 28.5 percent unaffiliated. It’s worth noting that not all Republicans are voting for GOP nominee Donald Trump — just like not all Democrats are supporting party nominee Hillary Clinton. But the early voting is a potential...

The American public has heard that 12 swing states will determine who will be the next president. But a book, Presidential Swing States: Why Only Ten Matter, by Hamline University Professor David Schultz, who also edits the Journal of Public Affairs Education, predicts a very small number of America’s 3,142 counties and county equivalents will tip the balance.

In short, he needs 270 electoral votes, and taking the lead in some key swing states has remained elusive. But if the new polls are correct, at least two of those states are now firmly within Trump’s reach. In Virginia, Trump has jumped from...
