    BOULDER—Congress may be unwilling to pass climate-change legislation, but EPA chief Gina McCarthy said Wednesday that’s not going to stop the Obama administration. In a speech at the University of Colorado Boulder, McCarthy said the administration intends to bypass Congress and use President Obama’s executive authority to advance its climate-change agenda. She cited the president’s June 25 address at Georgetown University, where he unveiled his Climate Action Plan, calling it “a most remarkable speech by a president of the United States.” “Essentially, he said that it is time to act,” McCarthy said. “And he said he wasn’t going to wait...

    Colorado Peak Politics ^ | February 28, 2013
    A huge story involving a key power broker in Colorado Democratic politics flew under the radar of the Colorado press last week – and ours too. Jim Martin, formerly the head of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Region 8, which includes Colorado, resigned from his post last Friday. According to Fox News, his resignation comes just three weeks after Louisiana’s Republican Senator David Vitter questioned his use of a personal email address to conduct official business. An EPA spokesperson cited “personal reasons” for Martin’s resignation. Vitter noted Martin may face a congressional probe for using his personal email address to circumnavigate...

    Several years ago, in the midst of our national nightmare of having the Clintons in the White House, there appeared to be a possible national hero emerging from inside our seemingly corrupt government: Scott Ritter. Ritter was then a U.N. weapons inspector who had been in and out of Iraq monitoring their suspected buildup of weapons of mass destruction. He said it all when he proclaimed one day, "Iraq presents a clear and present danger to international peace and security." Ritter then detailed the various gruesome weapons Saddam Hussein's scientists were developing: anthrax, botulism, sarin nerve gas, mustard gas –...

    William Scott Ritter Jr., a former United Nations weapons inspector who gained renown for his criticism of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, contends his online sexual encounters with teenage girls were only fantasy. Nearly two years ago, Ritter, of Delmar, watched his computer screen reveal that an anonymous person who had been exchanging sexually charged messages with him for 80 minutes was not a 15-year-old girl. It was a cop from a small town in northeast Pennsylvania, alone in his station house and trolling the Internet for suspected child predators. Ryan Venneman, a detective for the Barrett Township...

    Whenever someone says “you know I am good for it,” or “I am going to pay you back really soon,” or “I am just a little short right now,” it is safe to conclude that you are not going to be paid and that the person to whom you foolishly lent money is broke. When companies have a ‘temporary cash shortage,’ even for a day or two, they go bankrupt. Frontier, a onetime independent airline had a profitable business, but due to a creditor refusing to renew an agreement, it went bankrupt. No matter how the mainstream media wants to...

    In the race to be Colorado's next governor, Republicans continue trying to tie the Democrats' new candidate, Mayor John Hickenlooper, to Gov. Bill Ritter, whom both are trying to replace. While Hickenlooper has yet to directly respond to his likely GOP opponent, Scott McInnis, but, in his comments on the campaign trail, he has been increasingly critical of Ritter, who helped shepherd the mayor into the race upon his surprise exit in January. And don't think Ritter hasn't noticed. Friday, In an interview with FOX 31 anchor Ron Zappolo slated to air Sunday night on "Zappolo's People", Ritter fired back...

    Gov. Bill Ritter suffered "multiple rib fractures" in a bicycle accident early today. Ritter was treated at Denver Health Medical Center. "He is OK and he is in good spirits," spokesman Evan Dreyer said. "He is joking and laughing." His wife, Jeannie, was with him at the hospital. Ritter rides two or three mornings a week with friends. They were out today when Ritter around 6 a.m. somehow collided with one of the other cyclists in the group near 23rd Avenue and High Street.

    It’s a True Crime Post. Remember Scott Ritter? He was a pervert then and he’s a pervert now. Also, Governor Paterson’s son arrested for stolen credit cards? I pay a visit to crimes and those who confess to crimes. Does anyone really ever confess to a crime they did not commit? I re-visit Texas’ infamous “yogurt shop murders” and a few other crimes that had confessions from folks who later swear their confessions were fake. Perverted Pediatricians? Folks, don’t leave your kids alone with anyone, not even beloved doctors you’ve always trusted. A cat gets called to jury duty and...

    Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper’s war chest in his bid to be governor has zero dollars. Meanwhile, the leading Republican candidate to be the Grand Old Party’s nominee topped $1 million, Scott McInnis’ campaign announced Friday. At the same time, Gov. Bill Ritter’s campaign contributions for the fourth quarter of 2009 swelled his coffers to more than $2.5 million. Unfortunately for Hickenlooper, though, state law bars the Democratic governor who dropped his re-election bid earlier this month from giving that money to his fellow party member. But that’s all right, Hickenlooper said in a telephone interview... “I’ve got a steep hill...

    Colorado Attorney General John Suthers this morning said he will vote no on three of four state supreme court justices who are up for retention in November's elections and yes on Justice Nancy Rice. Suthers will vote against retaining Chief Judge Mary Mullarkey and judges Alex Martinez and Michael Bender... Most Republicans are supporting the effort to deny retention of all four justices who are up for retention. Mullarkey is widely despised by Colorado's Republicans because she and the other four justices are so blatantly partisan in deciding politically controversial cases. If Mullarkey is retained as chief justice this year,...

    If you were of the opinion that former United Nations weapons inspector Scott Ritter was a wanker, you'd be right. The widely known self-styled pundit was arrested in a Poconos sex-string operation. Ritter thought he was talking to a 15 year old girl instead of a vice squad cop, and Former U.N Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter Accused in Poconos Sex Sting Operation didn't know police were watching as he masturbated before a web cam and talked about sexual activity with the cop. The double game Ritter played was not only in the political sphere; Ritter also seemed to have a...

    A Democratic lawmaker lost his committee vice chairmanship on Friday after he welcomed Gov. Bill Ritter's decision not to run for re-election. Casso said "As with most of his decisions in the last four years, the governor is a day late, a dollar short, and without regard except for his own well being and interests." Democratic House Speaker Terrance Carroll refused to comment on whether the comments prompted him to remove Casso from the vice chairman's seat.
