    A Colorado mother of four was stabbed to death last week by a homeless man she was sheltering in her home, her family says. Jeanna Leslie, 49, was found dead in her apartment on Valentine's Day — six days after she was fatally stabbed, police said. Police arrested 40-year-old suspect, Terry Dunford, Friday after receiving a tip. He has been charged with first-degree murder, CBS News reported. Leslie reportedly took in Dunford and another homeless man and allowed them to live in her apartment to help them through a tough time.

    More than two dozen Senate Republicans are urging President Trump to re-engage in Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations. The 25 GOP lawmakers sent a letter to Trump on Friday saying they support his recent comments that he may consider U.S. participation if the 11-nation Asia-Pacific pact is improved.

    "The brave women of Fort Collins, who for years have been struggling against the cruel oppression of breasts imprisoned in clothing, were cheered when last February U.S. District Judge R. Brooke Jackson agreed with them. The law, said the judge, is based on gender discrimination, and violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee of “the equal protection of the laws.”

    Apparently having grown tired of waiting for the federal government to “do something” about immigration reform, some Colorado lawmakers have come up with an alternate solution. Some Democrats in the state legislature have a plan which would allow the state to issue their own “purple cards” (a state-level version of a green card), offering legal status to well-behaved illegal aliens. Right up front, I’ll just say that I hope they pass this law because watching the legal challenges and fallout should be either informative or hilarious. (CBS Denver) Colorado would have its own version of a “green card” under legislation...

    Colorado Considers ‘Purple Card’ As Its Own Version Of The ‘Green Card’ February 13, 2018 at 11:59 pmColorado would have it’s own version of a “green card” under legislation at the state capitol. It would be called a “purple card.” Some state lawmakers say if Congress won’t reform the immigration system, they will. Their bill would allow anyone who has paid state taxes for at least two years and hasn’t had a felony in three years to be eligible for legal status....Omar Gomez is leading the purple card movement, which he says is good for everyone. “It benefits the state...

    Report recommends banning fax, email balloting to improve cybersecurityDENVER — After years of accusing states of “voter suppression,” the Center for American Progress wants to make it tougher for overseas military to vote in the name of election security. The left-wing public-policy group issued Monday a report, “Election Security in All 50 States,” that called for stricter standards to prevent cyber-meddling in elections by foreign governments, including banning military stationed abroad from submitting ballots via email or fax. One state that allows such vote-casting is Colorado. The center called on the state to “prohibit voters stationed or living overseas from...

    A state commission in Colorado that punished Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips for refusing to use his artistry to promote same-sex marriage could be eliminated. Future funding for the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, where one member even likened Christians to Nazis, failed in a vote in the state’s Joint Budget Committee. State Sen. Kevin Lundberg, R-Berthoud, tweeted that the decision came down to a party-line vote that tabled plans to continue sending money to the commission. “My argument against approving their funding today is we need to wait and see what the legislature does with the renewal of the law...
  • Affidavit: Man arrested for killing Colorado teen says she hired him to kill her

    Joseph Michael Lopez, 22, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Natalie Bollinger, 19, on Dec. 28, 2017. Lopez was arrested Thursday evening after investigators “mined” Bollinger’s social media accounts and phone records. “As you can imagine, a 19-year-old’s social media or phone, there’s a lot of data there,” Adams County Sheriff Michael McIntosh told KMGH Denver 7. According to court documents, investigators found more than 100 text messages between Bollinger and Lopez from the night Bollinger was reported missing. Lopez claims the conversation was in response to an ad Bollinger placed on Craigslist with the title “I want...

    WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. — Have you heard loud booms in Wheat Ridge lately? That’s the question police are asking residents following several reports of loud booms or explosions across a large area of the Jefferson County city.

The noise is described as a single loud boom, occurring more frequently on weekends, although police say some have happened on other days of the week, between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. Some...

    The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), the non-profit digital rights organization Barlow cofounded, said in a statement on its website that Barlow died in his sleep on Wednesday. When Barlow was 15, he attended Fountain Valley School in Colorado where he met fellow student Bob Weir and they became friends. Barlow began co-writing songs in 1971 with Grateful Dead founding member Weir, a teaming that would last until the Dead disbanded in 1995. "Cassidy," "Mexicali Blues," Black-Throated Wind" and "Looks Like Rain" are among the dozens of songs Barlow helped pen. He contributed four songs to 1989's Built to Last. The...

    The Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA), a political fundraising group, touts the AGs as “the first line of defense” against Trump’s agenda. The “sheer volume” of Democratic lawsuits is “staggering,” said Scott Will, executive director of the Republican Attorneys General Association. Throughout 2017, Democratic attorneys generals filed 35 multi-state lawsuits against the Trump administration....By contrast, Republican attorneys general brought 46 multistate legal challenges during ALL of former President Barack Obama’s two terms. Attorney general races are playing out in 32 states in 2018, with 14 seats held by Democrats and 18 by Republicans. Rankin said DAGA is focused chiefly on...

    Neo-fascists, shouting what was described as a "Nazi slogan," attacked a group of Antifa protesters outside of a venue where conservative activist Charles Kirk had just concluded a lecture. The fascists, believed to be connected to the Traditionalist Worker Party, charged a group of anti-fascist protesters as they were dispersing. Police in riot gear moved in to restore order. Protesters were drawn to campus because of a speech by conservative activist Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA, which says on its website is devoted to the promotion of the principles of fiscal responsibility, free markets and limited government.

    Former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo is ending his bid for the Republican nomination for Colorado governor on Tuesday because he hasn’t raised the money he believes would be necessary to win an expensive election against a wealthy Democrat willing to spend millions on his campaign, Colorado Politics has learned. “I do not want to win a primary and lose a general, and I fear that was where we were going,” he told Colorado Politics in an interview.

    Former liberal governor of Colorado Dick Lamm and full text of his speech. Dick Lamm (left); Mike McGarry of the Colorado Alliance for Immigration Reform (center) and me, Jan. 8, 2003, Denver, Colorado. I have had the pleasure of speaking and debating alongside former Colorado Gov. Dick Lamm. In Colorado five years ago, we took on an open-borders contingent that was pushing for the illegal alien ID card known as the matricula consular (which I’ve blogged about extensively here.) He’s a true maverick–a Democrat who has long presaged the self-destructive impact of open borders. Text of his speech: I have...

    An expansive amnesty plan for millions of illegal aliens, being led by Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and his Democrat and Republican establishment allies, would annually give U.S. citizenship to 25,000 foreigners with Temporary Protected Status (TPS). The Gang of Six amnesty plan is being pushed by Flake, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ). The pro-open borders Senators want to see the amnesty slipped into a spending bill that would fund the federal government, threatening a shutdown if it is not included. Despite being told by...

    PALISADE, Colo. - A new study shows that if you have a marijuana shop down the street from your home, it may actually be boosting your houses resale value. When it comes to marijuana, many say it's a topic of discussion nationwide. However, it also hits close to home. The town of Palisade opened its first recreational marijuana shop back in September of 2017. Those in favor say having these shops in our area may have its perks.

    Pro-amnesty GOP Senators are working hand-in-glove with Democrats to block a government budget until President Donald Trump agrees to break his campaign promise and his presidency by amnestying millions of wage-lowering illegal immigrants. The hostage-taking is being fronted by a group of GOP legislators, led by Sen. Jeff Flake and Sen. Lindsey Graham, who announced Wednesday they would not allow 2018 funding for the Pentagon until Trump approves an amnesty, saying:
