  • Colorado Supreme Court knocks US Rep. Lamborn off ballot

    DENVER (AP) — Colorado’s Supreme Court on Monday knocked six-term U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn from his party’s primary, saying the Colorado Springs Republican didn’t collect enough valid voter signatures to qualify for the ballot.

    RRH elections ^ | April 23, 2018
    The Colorado Supreme Court has done what chronic primary challenges could not: end the congressional career of six-term Rep. Doug Lamborn (R). The State Supremes ruled that Lamborn (R) of Colorado Springs did not submit his petitions correctly and will not be on the ballot. The culprit is a technicality of Colorado’s byzantine ballot-qualification laws: Lamborn employed a firm that used a non-eligible petition circulator, and thus those petitions were invalid. Lamborn was always one of those strange incumbents who never got a hold on his district despite not making waves in DC: poor relationships with the local conservative establishment...
  • US Navy Says No to Atheist Chaplains; Members of Congress 'Relieved' by Decision

    The U.S. Navy turned down the application of an atheist chaplain to serve in the Navy Chaplain Corps. The move comes after 43 members of Congress signed a letter warning that the very definition of what it means to be a chaplain is at stake. Colorado Rep. Doug Lamborn (R) and Missouri Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R) explained in a joint statement on Wednesday that the Navy made the right call in turning down the appointment of Dr. Jason Heap, the national coordinator for the United Coalition of Reason based in Washington, D.C., who first made the attempt under the Obama...

    Fox News Opinion ^ | August 9, 2017 | Fred Fleitz
    During an April 11, 2013, House Armed Services Committee hearing, Congressman Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., inadvertently revealed several unclassified sentences from a DIA report that said DIA had determined with “moderate confidence” that North Korea has the capability to make a nuclear weapon small enough to be launched with a ballistic missile. The Director of National Intelligence and Obama officials subsequently tried to dismiss Lamborn’s disclosure by claiming the DIA assessment was an outlier that did not reflect the views of the rest of the U.S. Intelligence Community.....

    House.Gov ^ | Jan 31 2017
    Congressman Lamborn released the following statement following his introduction of two bills, H.R. 726 and H.R. 727, to defund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and National Public Radio (NPR): “Republicans and the new Administration need to demonstrate that we take our fiscal responsibility seriously. American taxpayers do not want their hard-earned dollars funding superfluous government programs just because that is the way things have always been done. That’s why I have reintroduced two pieces of legislation to permanently defund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and National Public Radio. CPB received $445 million during Fiscal Year 2016, and this money...
  • Congressman Introduces Bill to Ban Sales of Body Parts From Aborted Babies

    After a national scandal over the sale of aborted baby parts, Colorado Representative Doug Lamborn introduced the End Trafficking of the Terminated Unborn Act of 2015 (H.R. 3215), which would ban the acquisition of human body parts from abortions for research. Rep. Lamborn’s legislation is a response to four videos that show Planned Parenthood executives negotiating the sale of aborted babies and discussing how their abortionists alter procedures to obtain salable organs. The congressman believes his bill is especially important considering the recent revelations regarding Planned Parenthood’s connection with Colorado State University, a state funded school in Northern Colorado. In...
  • Lamborn urges CSU to halt use of post-abortion fetal tissue in medical research

    07/21/2015 8:43:36 PM PDT · by Morgana · 23 replies ^ | 7/20/2015 | staff
    Republican Rep. Doug Lamborn called Friday for Colorado State University to stop using fetal tissue from abortions in its research while CSU defended its work as above reproach both legally and ethically. In a letter to CSU President Tony Frank, Lamborn cited documents released last week by the Center for Medical Progress showing that the university bought what he described as “aborted babies’ parts” on Jan. 10, 2013, from a Planned Parenthood affiliate in California. Federal and state law bans the acquisition, receipt or transfer of "human fetal tissue for valuable consideration" obtained from an abortion, although such purchases are...
  • The Longest Hatred

    Robert S. Wistrich, who died suddenly last week, was considered the foremost scholar of anti-Semitism, which he called “the longest hatred,” one that appears to be metastasizing in the current era. Writing about Nazi anti-Semitism ruffles no feathers within academia and other elite circles. Mr. Wistrich, however, had been warning that “anti-Semitism has undergone a process of growing ‘Islamicization,’ linked to the terrorist holy war against Jews and other non-Muslims with its truly lethal consequences.” This “new” anti-Semitism,” he added, targetsIsrael, the only state with a Jewish majority: “the collective Jew.” “New” is a relative term: It was 40 years...
  • Embattled House Democrats Turn Against Nancy Pelosi

    House Republicans have surprising new company in attacking Nancy Pelosi: her fellow House Democrats. Three Democrats running in GOP-leaning House districts have used late-stage television ads in a bid to distance themselves from the liberal leader of Democrats' House caucus—the same caucus they're fighting to join in 2015. "Here's what I believe: Congress is broken," says Gwen Graham, one of the Democratic Party's top recruits, in a recent TV ad as a photo of Pelosi and House Speaker John Boehner flashes on the screen. "Both parties—Republican and Democrat—are to blame. And both need new leaders in Washington." In Georgia, Rep....

    Following Breitbart News’ reports on the Pentagon collaborating with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein, which may lead to courts-martial for Christian proselytizing, members of Congress are preparing a letter demanding answers from Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. Reps. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) and Republican Study Committee Chairman Steve Scalise (R-LA) are circulating the letter among fellow congressmen. Lamborn discussed the letter and his concerns during an interview with Breitbart News this afternoon. There is already a provision in federal law, Section 533 of this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), that guarantees freedom of religious belief in the military. It does not...

    Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., said on Monday he is boycotting President Obama’s State of the Union address. In a tersely worded statement released by his office, Lamborn said he decided instead “to pass” on attending the speech on Tuesday night, though he will watch it on television. “Congressman Lamborn does not support the policies of Barack Obama,” the statement said. A spokeswoman said Lamborn was about to board a flight and was not immediately available to elaborate. But his office has already prepared a further explanation for constituents if they want to know more about his decision. That explanation states...

    Daily Caller ^ | 03-17-2011 | Mathew Boyle
    In wake of conservative James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas sting videos of National Public Radio (NPR) senior executives, House Republicans are set to vote Thursday to defund NPR completely. They’re expected to pass a bill that would pull all taxpayer money out of NPR, including the money that’s funneled through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). The bill’s sponsor, Congressman Doug Lamborn, Michigan Republican, told The Daily Caller he thinks NPR will survive in a free market situation. But, even if it wouldn’t, he questions the need to fuel it with taxpayer money. “Certainly, it would survive,” Lamborn said. “They have...
  • Cut public broadcasting now--New Congress needs to axe obsolete subsidized programming

    The Washington Times ^ | January, 14, 2011 | Editorial
    One of the first orders of business for the new Congress is to defund public broadcasting. Last week, Rep. Doug Lamborn, Colorado Republican, introduced legislation to do just that. He immediately came under fire from National Public Radio (NPR) for his "intrusion into the programming decision-making of America's public radio stations." To hear the taxpayer-subsidized broadcast suits talk, it's as though Mr. Lamborn was attacking the First Amendment itself. National Public Radio claims taking away federal money "would ultimately dictate the daily editorial schedules and news programs of nearly 1,000 public radio stations across America." This argument is inconsistent and...

    NPR Launches Offensive Against Congressman Trying to Cut Its Public Funding published January 13, 2011 | National Public Radio is accusing Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., who is leading a Republican charge to cut public funding to the broadcaster, of trying to stifle free speech, a move that puts the embattled network on the offense as it fights fallout from its decision to fire Fox News contributor Juan Williams. Lamborn immediately fired back, saying the whole point of not funding NPR is to enhance competition and viewpoints. The tit-for-tat comes just a week after the NPR news editor who fired...

    The so-called stimulus package that just passed the U.S. House will not only fail to accomplish its stated purpose, it will damage the economic health of our country for decades to come. President Barack Obama at least tried to reach out to House Republicans, meeting with us earlier in the week. His best attempts fell flat, however, as not a single Republican voted for the package. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her liberal chairmen did not even attempt to reach out. To be sure, everyone agrees that whatever help the federal government can constructively and legitimately give should be given. There...

    Bentley Rayburn officially launched his campaign Thursday to unseat a fellow Republican, Congressman Doug Lamborn, by touting himself as "best positioned to reunite this party." Rayburn, who finished third in last year's primary for what was then an open seat, becomes the second challenger in the 2008 race, joining 2006 primary runner-up Jeff Crank. Lamborn has not made his re-election bid official, but he is raising money. Rayburn, a retired Air Force major general, devoted a good portion of his speech to "the war against radical Islam." He said the ongoing battle is a multi-generational struggle that will not be...

    NEW YORK A couple who wrote a letter to the editor of a small community paper in Colorado were surprised to receive a threatening phone call at home complaining about it -- from a U.S. congressman. Rep. Doug Lamborn left two voice mails after they questioned his acceptance of campaign contributions from the gambling industry. In one he said there would be "consequences" if the couple did not respond. In his messages, reprinted by the Denver Post today, Lamborn appeal to them as "brothers and sisters in Christ" and asked them to call him to discuss their "blatantly false" letter....

    Colorado Springs - Rep. Doug Lamborn left two voice mails at the home of a couple who questioned his acceptance of campaign contributions from the gambling industry, saying there would be "consequences" if the couple did not respond. Jonathan and Anna Bartha wrote a letter printed in the Aug. 24 Woodmen Edition, a community newspaper. The couple raised concerns about Lamborn's receipt of $1,000 from International Game Technology PAC and a $500 contribution last summer from Marc Murphy, an executive of Bronco Billy's Casino in Cripple Creek. IGT makes gambling equipment. Jonathan Bartha, 34, is employed by Focus on the...

    CO-05th - Lamborn up big [Greg Pollowitz 10/20 08:53 AM] On Oct. 10th, I posted news that the race for the C0-05th was tied.  This was horrible news for Republicans as the district is very Republican.  A new poll out from SurveyUSA, however, tells a different story: Lamborn Keeps CO5 House Seat for GOP: In an election in Colorado's 5th Congressional District today, 10/19/06, Republican Doug Lamborn defeats Democrat Jay Fawcett, 51% to 38%, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for KUSA-TV Denver.

    Republican state Sen. Doug Lamborn's fiercest opponent in the 5th District race isn't his Democratic foe. It's the Republican he's trying to succeed -- 10-term Rep. Joel Hefley. Mr. Lamborn is running neck and neck with Democrat Jay Fawcett ... Shortly after Mr. Lamborn won a six-candidate primary on Aug. 8, Mr. Hefley, who is retiring, said he would refuse to endorse the Republican candidate, pointing to what he described as his "sleazy, dishonest campaign." That stinging rebuke, coming from the highly regarded Mr. Hefley, delivered a devastating blow to Mr. Lamborn's candidacy. Several other prominent Republicans soon joined Mr....
