    Colion Noir gives his take on the statement made by Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) on April 2, 2013 at the Denver Post forum: "I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available."

    If you don’t know by now why the Dems are considered the Smug Party, today’s post is for you. Surprisingly it’s not because of Big Guy, although he does make a pretty good case for himself: No. Once again we’ve got the Women of Obama’s Team (WOOT1) to thank for that honor. Behold, Rep. Diana DeGette’s (D-Colo.) smug outdoes even the Great Won: Here’s DeGette, handling a Denver senior citizen’s concern about people breaking into his house: “There may not be one bad guy that comes into my house… I have to change magazines? I am at a serious disadvantage.”...

    Click on this 36 second YouTube video. During the discussion, Congresswoman Diana Degette (D-CO), revealed how little she really understands about the guns she (and other Democrats) want to regulate out of existence. She actually said, about high capacity magazines"If you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time, because THE BULLETS WILL HAVE BEEN SHOT, AND THERE WON'T BE ANY MORE AVAILABLE!"- Then, listen for the laughter in the audience. Is she really that ignorant,or does she think WE are?

    I have a solution to the Global Warming Dilemma. You know the one, the dilemma in which the planet is heating up furiously due to humanity's actitivies on the planet (except it's not, really, and even The Economist had to back off the claim... but I digress....) THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM OF GLOBAL WARMING IS THIS: RESTRICT THE SIZE OF GAS TANKS. See: "I will tell you these are gasolines, they’re fuels, so the people who have those big gas tanks, now they’re going to drive them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these...

    Democratic Rep. Diana DeGette, a lead sponsor of the federal ban on personal defense-capacity magazines showed a Denver Post forum she doesn’t have a clue as to what it is she wants to ban, and the “clarifying” statement made by her spokeswoman served to confirm the ignorance of both women. “I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot...

    Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette, the lead Democratic sponsor of a federal bill to ban high-capacity magazines, is apparently unaware that such magazines can be reloaded and reused, according to a comment she made at a Denver Post-sponsored forum on gun control on Tuesday. When asked how limiting the number of bullets in magazines would help reduce violence, she replied: “I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now, they’re going to shoot them. So if you ban them in the future, the number of these high-capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over...

    During a forum on gun control in Colorado hosted by The Denver Post, Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) mocked the concerns of a senior citizen who said that his impairments would put him at a significant disadvantage in a firefight under the state’s new gun laws. She drew laughs from the crowd when she reminded the questioner that he can take advantage of the Denver Police Department’s services. She added that, in the hypothetical situation the questioner described, “you’d probably be dead anyway.” At the Tuesday night forum, the elderly questioner described his unique circumstances and asked DeGette about how he...

    On Tuesday night The Denver Post editorial board hosts a public forum on gun legislation at the national level. U.S. Reps. Diana DeGette and Ed Perlmutter, State Sen. Kevin Lundberg, and Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith are among the scheduled panelists. During the question and answer period a concerned Denver citizen asked Democratic Representative DeGette how he was supposed to defend himself under the new Colorado gun laws. DeGette smirked and mocked the senior citizen saying, “The good news for you, you live in Denver. The Denver PD would be there within minutes. (laughing) You’d probably be dead anyway.” Really?...

    A federal judge on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit challenging the Obama administration’s funding of stem cell research. The lawsuit, filed by Boston biological engineer James L. Shirley, asserted that the funding violated a 1996 law prohibiting federal taxpayer money from supporting work that harms an embryo. The Obama administration policy allows research on embryos that were harvested long ago through private funding ... ... The Court of Appeals overruled him, and (Judge Royce) Lamberth said Wednesday he is bound by the higher court’s ruling and dismissed the case. The White House hailed the ruling as a “victory for research and...

    August 20, 2008, 4:00 a.m. Blinded by ScienceDiana DeGette’s memoir of confusion. By Yuval Levin Diana DeGette is a sixth-term Democratic congresswoman from Colorado’s first district, and the Democrats’ chief deputy whip in the House. Ever since her arrival in Congress, replacing the retiring Pat Schroeder in 1997, DeGette has focused her attention on abortion, reproductive issues, and — most prominently — the stem-cell debate. She is one of the chief sponsors of a bill to use tax dollars to encourage the ongoing destruction of human embryos for research. The measure, which would overturn President Bush’s stem-cell-funding policy, had...
  • Rosen: Salazar welshes on deal (filibuster, judge nominees, broken campaign promise)

    Rocky Mountain News column ^ | April 29th, 2005 | Mike Rosen
    There's ample cause to criticize Sen. Ken Salazar for reneging on a key campaign promise. But the picketing of his wife's Dairy Queen restaurant by members of the Faith Bible Chapel who carried signs reading, "Salazar is anti-Christian" and "Salazar mocks God" is absurd. This dispute isn't about Salazar's religion; it's about his politics. === Correction Because of an editing error, this column misidentified those picketing a local restaurant as being associated with Faith Bible Chapel. The picketers were from Denver Bible Church. === On the other hand, Salazar's angry diatribe against Focus on the Family's advertising campaign targeting him...

    Denver Post ^ | September 30, 2004 | David Harsanyi
    Clearly, this is about politics, not soldiers. Congresswoman Diana DeGette kicked up some dirt and found prized national attention with her recent call for a congressional investigation into complaints that soldiers in Fort Carson's 3rd Brigade Combat Team have been threatened with deployment to Iraq unless they re-enlist. "How widespread is this?" DeGette asked at a recent news conference. "How deep does it go into the Pentagon? How far does it go up to the Oval Office?" The Oval Office? Wishful thinking will get you nowhere, congresswoman. The more pertinent question: How much of this is legitimate, and how much...
