    Former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo is ending his bid for the Republican nomination for Colorado governor on Tuesday because he hasnít 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. ďI do not want to win a primary and lose a general, and I fear that was where we were going,Ē he told Colorado Politics in an interview.
  • Former Rep. Tom Tancredo to Run for Governor of Colorado

    Breitbart ^ | Sean Moran
    Former Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO), a strong advocate against illegal immigration, will reportedly run for Colorado gubernatorial election in 2018. Tancredo decided to enter the race for governor after a private poll revealed that he had a wide lead over other potential Republican candidates. The survey also revealed that Tancredo has a statistical tie with Democratic candidate Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO). Tancredo told Colorado Politics on Monday, ďI think that all of the things we need to do in the state of Colorado really require some bold leadership. It will not be easy to get some real change here, but...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan, at a private dinner earlier this year, said he thought only ďone memberĒ wanted to build a wall across the entire U.S.-Mexico border, Breitbart News has learned from multiple sources with direct knowledge of the comments, including former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO). The dinner, sources said, took place on the eve of the Houseís passage of two relatively minor immigration bills at the end of June: Kateís Law and sanctuary city reforms. The far wider reaching Davis-Oliver Act was tabled at the same time. ďRyan told a group of Republicans he met with Ö that only...

    August of 2017 might be recorded as the date the ground shifted under the feet of defenders of constitutional liberty and freedom of assembly in the United States. The nationís newspaper establishment is now providing a public platform for normalizing the claim that the Constitutionís protections for freedom of the press and freedom of speech are inadequate weapons for winning the fight against a ďrising tide of racism,Ē and therefore, violence may not only be justified, it may be the only moral alternative. Thus sayeth the lords of ďAntifa,Ē the newly respectable priests (and armed enforcers) of vigilante justice. On...

    Tancredo: Over 300 Sanctuary Cities Are Costing State and Local Taxpayers over $7,000,000,000 Annually President Trump this week signed an executive order declaring war on so-called sanctuary cities. Agencies within the United States Government will begin withholding federal grant funds from those cities, and additional actions to enforce federal immigration law will be taken soon. Unlike Obama, President Trump is not trying to making new laws by executive decree. In his Executive Order, the president is only reminding mayors and governors of existing federal law dating to 1996: U.S. Code õ Title 8 õ Chapter 12 õ Subchapter II õ...

    Students at hundreds of colleges and universities are being systematically indoctrinated into the ďNew CivicsĒ of social justice activism, according to a report released this past week by the National Association of Scholars. The reportís findings suggest that the suppression of free speech on college campuses that is making headlines is only the tip of a very large iceberg. What lies beneath the surface is a massive, publicly funded program of indoctrination through a remaking of the curriculum as a vehicle for advancing the political agenda of progressivism. The full NAS report, MAKING CITIZENS: HOW AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES TEACH CIVICS, can...

    The FBI investigation has already revealed Hillary Clintonís perjury, and a new investigation of additional classified documents shared through her personal email server can lead to criminal indictmentsóunless the FBI itself wants to fall on its sword in a far more visible and viral cover-up than we have seen to date. It is not at all clear that the FBI has not already been hopelessly compromised: Did the FBI have knowledge of Barack Obamaís participation in the illegal email server and the presidentís lies about it to the public? Who will investigate the investigators? What happens if Clinton wins the...

    Does anyone think it an accident that President Obama chose Memorial Day weekend to give his high-sounding moral equivalence speech in Hiroshima calling for a ďmoral revolutionĒ? What Obama proposed in his speech in Japan is moral disarmament, and the consequences of that moral capitulation will be horrific if the world follows his advice.

    We knew back in September that the Colorado Republican Party had made a major error when it dumped the presidential preference poll in the midst of maybe the wildest Republican race ever. (SNIP) He thinks of the 11 states in play that Rubio has a shot at two Ė Minnesota and Virginia. But his best shot, he writes, would have been Colorado, with its mix of voters that run to the highly educated and to the highly religious, which would have been a good mix for Rubio, who is being supported by Cory Gardner and most of the GOP establishment.

    Ever since Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) departed the House in 2008, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has been the lower chamber's most visible critic of immigration reform. For the past three months, he has taken on the role of ringleader of the House's anti-immigration caucus, hosting regular meetings in his office to discuss with his tea party-minded colleagues how to scuttle efforts to pass legislation that would offer legal status to any of the country's 11 million undocumented immigrants. (SNIP) "I told this to Karl Rove one day, we were having this discussion," King said. "I said, Karl, if you give...

    House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) this past week again showed he will punish conservative House members for not supporting deals he strikes with President Obama and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). This does not bode well for the package of immigration bills to be debated on the House floor sometime after the July Fourth recess. House Republicans have been writing and ďmarking upĒ more than a dozen immigration bills over the past year, and Republican leaders have been promising a ďpackage of little billsĒ as an alternative to the ďcomprehensiveĒ bills favored by the amnesty lobby.

    Texas Gov. Rick Perryís clashes with conservative activists are nothing new: A bitter battle over racial preferences and liberal judges has raged in the tight-knit world of Lone Star politics since 2001. In the days following George W. Bushís election to the presidency, the newly minted Gov. Perry had a chance to prove his mettle by nominating justices to fill two Texas Supreme Court vacancies. Following Ronald Reaganís unsuccessful 1987 nomination of Robert Bork to the U.S. Supreme Court, conservative activists had been awakened to a new kind of politics ó the politics of judicial nominations ó and Perryís selection...
