  • The Spread of Rocky Mountain Jihad

    09/17/2014 4:25:33 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | September 17, 2014 | Michelle Malkin
    Something's fouling Colorado's crisp air -- and I'm not talking about the pot smoke. In my adopted home state, the toxic fumes of Islamic jihad have penetrated the most unlikely hamlets and hinterlands. Obama administration officials are vehemently denying plots by ISIS operatives to cross our borders. But the lesson here is clear: Thanks to laptop recruitment, reckless visa policies and homegrown treachery, the U.S.-based jihad export-import business is and has been thriving. Last week, 19-year-old Shannon Conley of Arvada (a Denver suburb once known as the "Celery Capital of the World") pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to...

    Colorado Sen. Mark Udall's brother died on a hiking trip in the Rocky Mountains, officials said. Randy Udall, 61, went on a hike in the Wind River Range in Wyoming on June 20 and was expected back six days later. When the experienced hiker did not return, family members reported him missing. Rescue crews and helicopters scoured mountain passes to find him. A helicopter search team discovered his body in a remote area on Wednesday afternoon, the Sublette County Sheriff's Office said. It appeared that he died of natural causes, the senator said in a statement, thanking rescuers for their...
  • A Big Win Over Exxon!

    Dear VICTORY! Thanks to you, we defeated Exxon’s plan to turn a pristine stretch of the Rocky Mountains into an industrial tar sands corridor. This is a win for the environment worth celebrating. Last week, we succeeded in bringing down a Goliath ... none other than Exxon Mobil. Thanks to your activism, we forced the oil giant to back down in its quest to turn a remote and wild stretch of the Rocky Mountains into an industrial transportation corridor. Exxon has formally withdrawn its application with the state of Montana to ship thousands of mega-sized tractor trailers, filled with tar...

    The Census Bureau last week released county and city populations for the last of the 50 states from the 2010 Census last week, ahead of schedule. Behind the columns of numbers are many vivid stories of how our nation has been changing — and some lessons for public policy, as well. Geographically, our population is moving to the south and west, to the point that the center of the nation’s population has moved to Texas County, Missouri. That sounds like the familiar story of people moving from the Snow Belt to the Sun Belt, but that’s not exactly what’s happening....

    A small group of West African men who came to the Rockies in search of economic opportunity are embroiled in a dispute with Wal-Mart, accusing it of a raft of discriminatory actions. Most say they were dismissed because supervisors wanted to give their jobs to local people in need of work.

    While working this summer for the Federal Government on some communication issues on a ridgeline at about 7,000 feet in the mountains of Idaho, I was witness to the true, Great Smoky Mountains, not the mist and fog shrouded variety back east. Here's a picture I took. The Great Smoky Mountains of Idaho - 2006 The wind had come up that day out of the south very strong and allowed us to get to this particular spot without fear of the fire. We passed through a National Guard check point and as Federal Employees, with a comm job to do,...

    The Denver Post perspective Drought's a tricky phenomenon By Klaus Wolter Sunday, May 02, 2004 - In much of Colorado, the 1980s and '90s were years of benign climate conditions. Dry years were rare, and some of the wettest years on record were observed along the Front Range. If you moved into our state during this period, you might have gotten a misleading impression about typical conditions here. Beginning in September 1999, Colorado experienced severe drought conditions, part of a global drought pattern that covered a large fraction of the United States, the Mediterranean, and southwest Asia. (It led to...
