  • Poll to FReep: Greeley's new hotel/convention center secretly funded by tax money loan

    Greeley Tribune ^ | 5/1/2016 | Greeley Tribune
    Our city council took it upon themselves to approve an $8 Million Dollar "Loan" to a shadow LLC group building a hotel/conference center in the downtown area of Greeley, but never disclosed the loan to the public till after groundbreaking. A new citizen group is petitioning to get this on the ballot for voters to approve or disapprove, as should have been done in the first place. Help them out by freeping the poll on the Tribune phone page, it's about halfway down the page. Thanks.

    “Mexico First” has been the open, avowed policy of the government of Mexico for a generation, and Mexico expects its former residents to be loyal to Mexico for the next 200 years. Yet, when Donald Trump calls for an “America First” foreign policy, as he did in a speech this past week, he is denounced by pundits and the national security establishment for “nativism” and “demagoguery,” as if that policy is a novel and radical idea. Well, not in Mexico. I know that for a fact because I had it explained to me in Mexico City back in 2001 by...

    DENVER — The Environmental Protection Agency came under fire Thursday after an official said the agency would not fully cover a Colorado county’s expenses stemming from the EPA-caused toxic wastewater spill at the Gold King Mine. Colorado Republicans blasted the agency after the Durango Herald reported that an EPA official nixed some of La Plata County’s proposed cooperative agreement for $2.4 million in spill-related costs over 10 years at a Wednesday board of county commissioners meeting. Sen. Cory Gardner, Colorado Republican, described the report as “outrageous” and “yet another example of the Washington double standard,” adding that he would work...
  • Presidential primary proposal clears 1st hurdle in Colorado legislature

    KRDO.com Channel 13 ^ | April 25,2016
    A plan to return Colorado to a presidential preference primary has cleared its first hurdle at the state Legislature. A House committee voted 5-4 Monday to set up a primary vote for 2020. Unaffiliated voters could choose to vote in a party's primary as long as they indicate a preference, which would then be scrubbed after the vote. That falls short of a truly open primary, in which voters could cast ballots in whichever party they choose, without indicating a party preference. Colorado has more unaffiliated voters than voters registered with either party. Legislative analysts have said a primary vote...

    For 65 years, Denver Christian Schools used the mascot “Crusaders,” but that’s all about to change. Although CEO Todd Lanting says it’s not about political correctness, the change is being made because some might find it offensive to Muslims, EAG News reported Tuesday. “In our mission, in light of the command to love our neighbors as ourselves, the crusader was an inconsistent, inappropriate symbol for that mission,” Lanting told KUSA. EAG added: After using the Crusaders mascot for 65 of the school’s 100 year history, officials in November began to solicit ideas for a new symbol, and have since narrowed...

    The leading Republican establishment candidate in Colorado’s senate primary has failed to gather enough signatures to appear on the June 28 primary ballot, according to state officials. The Secretary of State’s office says that Jon Keyser, an Air Force veteran and Colorado state representative, has missed the 1,500 signature threshold in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District by 86 signatures, reports the Denver Post. State party rules stipulate that a candidate must collect at least 1,500 signatures in each of Colorado’s congressional districts to qualify to appear on the primary ballot. The post quoted a spokesman for the Keyser campaign suggesting that...

Breitbart News has obtained an email that Boulder County GOP chairwoman Peg Cage sent to other top Republican officials in Colorado, including to other party chairs, describing the errors in the process that led to “the perception of fraud.” Reached for comment on the email, Cage said that the caucus might have to be done over.

    In light of all the controversy surrounding the Cruz Colorado voterless win. We find that Trump would have won Colorado quite easily. If a Republican Presidential Primary Election were to take place in Colorado, 44% of likely voters would vote for Donald Trump, 34% support Ted Cruz, 17% support John Kasich and 5% are undecided. When asked to choose between only Ted Cruz or Donald Trump, 48% support Trump and 42% support Cruz, and 10% are undecided. These results are interesting in light of the results at the Republican State Convention where Ted Cruz won all 34 delegates awarded. What...

In New York, Cruz’s numbers show he will be mathematically eliminated from any chance of reaching the 1,237 delegates that would give him the nomination in Cleveland this summer. On top of that, given his very poor showing so far, Cruz is on the brink of finishing 3rd behind John Kasich who has already been mathematically eliminated himself. In Pennsylvania, Cruz is fading and...

    Why are the effects of the Colorado convention still lingering, and why have they taken on a life of their own? It's certainly not because of "Trump's whining." If you believe that every criticism of every campaign event by ANY side is "whining," well, yeah, Trump "whined" (just as Cruz's supporters seem to be "whining" about the NY dinner). If you want to take that line, why has this seemingly touched a nerve that Trump's "whining" about so many other things did not? History is replete with instances where the specific developments were badly misunderstood, misreported, or didn't happen at...

Priebus said it "really isn't something that most people give a darn about." Priebus said not moving past this is this gets in the way of unifying the party. Priebus tried to distance himself from the controversial process, saying he doesn't write the rules for the Republican party, "the delegates at the convention write the rules." However, Priebus defended the process and said it's "pretty much the same system the Democrats use; delegates and voters choose the nominee."

    On Saturday Ted Cruz supporters took all 13 of the delegates up for grabs at the Colorado GOP Convention to complete a clean sweep of the state. But it was not without controversy. There never was a vote – Party elites decided on who got the delegates. The anti-Trump politicians were passing around a “Resolution to Forbid Colorado Delegates from Voting for Trump” for weeks before the convention. Snip... Robert Zubrin from Colorado Republicans for Liberty wrote about the anti-Trump resolution at American Thinker back on March 22, 2016: In the caucuses March 1, I was elected an alternate delegate...

    On Tuesday’s radio program, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin chastised Donald Trump for insisting that the Republican “primary system is rigged.” The system is not rigged, Levin said, and yet Mr. Trump sounds like an entitled liberal demanding delegates from Colorado without having put in the work to win them. It sounds like Mr. Trump is demanding “delegate welfare,” said Levin. The delegate appointment rules in most of these primaries have been established for nearly a century. In Colorado, for example, the rules for this primary process have been in place since 1912. “Has the system been corrupt for 100...
  • Colorado Crooks & Cronies for Cruz/Party RULES & their CO Delegates list

    Everyone has already voiced their astonishment regarding the complete disenfranchisement of approximately 1,000,000 registered Republican voters in the State of Colorado. It is clear that the Colorado Republican Party has no interest in the voice of their constituents. The CO Republican Party rules for the delegation selection process and delegates are outlined at the source below. http://www.thegreenpapers.com/P16/CO-R As you have seen, the GOP is extremely proud of their achievement to privatize the selection of a presidential candidate for Colorado. They have published the list of Colorado delegates in The Denver Post and other sources. Many of you may have friends...

    As Donald Trump attempts to distract from his campaign's myriad failures in Colorado by cynically stirring the "rigged corrupt game" pot, one of the public faces of this phony outrage is a gentleman who earned himself prime Drudge real estate when he dramatically burned his voter registration card on camera -- claiming that he was wrongfully turned away from the state party convention because he's a Trump fan. It's a disenfranchisement conspiracy cooked up by the elites, he argued, torching his Republican documentation in protest.  The Federalist's Mollie Hemingway was skeptical of the man's version of events and dug into the back story....

    Suspicious white powder, together with vile anti-Semitic rant, triggered security scare; man could face year in prison. A Boulder man accused of sending letters containing a suspicious white powder to two Jewish organizations in the Colorado city pleaded guilty. Jeffery Thomas Klinkel, 34, pleaded guilty late last month to one count each of felony menacing and using a hoax chemical or biological weapon, the Daily Camera reported Monday. He will be sentenced on June 1 and faces up to five years in prison. On April 6, 2015, the Boulder JCC received a letter that read, "This Goyim is enjoying the...

    Advancement by technicality is bad form. Advancement by manufactured technicality is dishonest. The GOP argument in the Colorado delegation scandal is, "No rules were broken because we make up our own rules. No rules were broken because we have the right to change the rules to our favor. 'The law means what we say it means.' If the law says something inconvenient, we'll change it." Just because no rules were broken does not mean it was ethical. Q: What kind of person maneuvers in the shadows taking advantage of unknown weak points, many of which they have personally created, as...

    Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant revival tour might cause headaches for down-ballot Republicans who are already trying to put space between themselves and the divisive party front-runner. (SNIP) Three Senate Republicans from Latino-heavy states, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Dean Heller of Nevada and Jeff Flake of Arizona, are all well-practiced in the dance of softening tough-talk on immigration enforcement to avoid alienating voters.

    YOU WON’T BELIEVE THIS! CRUZ SUPPORTERS ATTEMPT COUP AT EAGLE FORUM!
