    If Democratic voters are struggling to see what sets John Hickenlooper apart from the 2020 pack they need to look no further than his autobiography, which outlines in excruciating detail his quest to lose his virginity and, seemingly, every sexual exploit since. The candidate's book, The Opposite of Woe: My Life in Beer and Politics, outlines the journey from a child in the Philadelphia suburbs to the president of a brewing company, mayor of Denver, and then governor of Colorado. Sprinkled throughout is the minutiae of his angst-ridden relationships with women, named and unnamed. A Washington Examiner analysis totaled Hickenlooper's...

    The Week ^ | March 22 2019 | Matthew Walther
    I wish I could say that the worst thing about John Hickenlooper's CNN town hall on Wednesday night was the part where he talked about watching Deep Throat with his mom. The former governor of Colorado, who is one of roughly 173 declared candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination, explained that the porno-with-mom thing was not an accident. He said he knew that the movie was "naughty" but thought his mother might enjoy getting out of the house. Apparently after the infamous X-rated flick began she was "mortified." That poor woman... Meanwhile, there is Beto... I do want to know...

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The Democrat presidential nomination battle is already a three-ring circus, and the far left elements of the Democrat base are going to make sure it stays that way. Yesterday, ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who is struggling to gain a foothold in the race, found himself in trouble with the social justice warrior crowd when his effort to imply that a woman may well win the nominating contest fell flat with the humorless left. The first mistake Hickenlooper made was accepting CNN’s invitation to get a little (very little, given CNN’s dwindling audience)...
  • Democrat Contender John Hickenlooper Confirms Watching Porno With Mother

    Democratic presidential candidate John Hickenlooper confirmed Wednesday night during his CNN town hall event that he took his mother to watch an X-rated pornographic movie when he was younger and that the two stayed for the entire movie. Hickenlooper confirmed that the incident, which he wrote about in his memoir, happened when he returned home from college to visit his mother for Thanksgiving. Hickenlooper's dad died when he was 8-years-old, and he said that he didn't realize that his mother was lonely until he returned home from college. "I promised, I called a friend in Philadelphia — and ... we...

    Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because The Campaign Never Ends) By now, we all know that Irish Bob O’Rourke is a fake “rising star” in this year’s Democrat presidential nominating contest. Irish Bob always was little more than a pure media creation, and he is now struggling on the national stage mainly because the same media that created and supported him in his 2018 run against Ted Cruz has now moved on to campaigning for Kamala Harris and The Commie. But there are two real rising stars in the Democrats’ nominating battle, and their names will probably surprise you: Andrew...

    Colorado is the latest state to join a group pledging to elect presidents based on who wins the national popular vote Colorado has become the latest state — and the first swing state — to join a group pledging to elect presidents based on who wins the national popular vote. Eleven other states and the District of Columbia have signed onto the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement that requires those states to select their presidential electors based on who wins the most individual votes nationwide, regardless of which candidate wins in the state. Colorado Gov. Jared Polis signed...

    Via the Free Beacon, you are not hallucinating. This actually happened.In fact, that’s not the most surreal part. The surreal part is that this is obviously the answer John Hickenlooper should have given when he was recently asked whether he’s a capitalist and botched it royally. Read that again: A twice-elected governor from a swing state is less politically adept than Elizabeth Warren.If I were him I’d drop out today in shame.On Earth 2, Warren is being asked this same question amid news that Bernie Sanders has decided to pass on running for president again in 2020. How does...

    An Aspen teen and his parents were charged Monday with giving cocaine and alcohol to underage high school students during parties at their home near Aspen Highlands, according to court documents. Joseph Lipsey IV, 19, was arrested Monday on his way to Aspen High School, and his mother Shira Lipsey, 44, was arrested at her home. Both were charged with multiple counts, including felonies, and released after each posting $100,000 cash-only bonds. Lipsey is the same teen charged in January with two counts of felony vehicular assault after he was alleged to have been at the wheel of a Tesla...

    (RNS) — Last week, to little notice, the Masterpiece Cakeshop case ended with a whimper. Nine months after the Supreme Court found that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission had acted prejudicially in upholding the complaint of a gay couple who were refused a wedding cake by baker Jack Phillips, the two sides agreed to stop fighting. Specifically, the commission withdrew its proceedings against Phillips for discrimination and Phillips withdrew his case against the commission for harassment. Which is to say that Phillips can keep refusing to customize cakes that, as he put it, “celebrate events or express messages that conflict...

    President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is preparing an early focus on Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, states that were instrumental to his improbable 2016 victory but where his support has softened, two campaign advisers said. The decision to accelerate campaign organising and eventually get the Republican president to make trips to the three states is a recognition that Trump’s path to re-election in 2020 will need to repeat some of the successes he had in 2016. Advisers also see a need to bolster Trump’s support in Florida, a battleground state he considers his second home but where opinion polls show him...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden will run for president in 2020, a senior Democratic lawmaker told The Hill on Tuesday, a move that will shake up the crowded Democratic primary field and make him the clear front-runner for his party’s nomination against President Trump. “I’m giving it a shot,” Biden said matter-of-factly during a phone call with a House Democratic lawmaker within the past week — a conversation the congressman recounted to The Hill and interpreted as a sure sign that Biden will run in 2020. In the brief phone call, the former vice president asked if he could bounce...

    Fox News ^ | March 11,2019 | Kristen Waggoner
    Consistent with Jack’s past practices, his shop declined the requested gender-transition cake because it would have communicated that the status of being male or female can be chosen and changed based on perceptions and feelings—a message that conflicts with his religious beliefs. For that decision, the state prosecuted Jack a second time, announcing that he must create that cake or be punished. In forging ahead with that new complaint, Colorado officials confirmed that they applied their laws in an arbitrary way, which the Supreme Court has already said that they cannot do. Worse yet, Colorado commissioners—functioning as Jack’s judge and...

    The Federalist ^ | 03/11/2019 | David Marcus
    Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, complete with lei, took the stage at SXSW in Austin to do her first town hall as a presidential candidate Sunday night on CNN. The 37-year-old Iraq War veteran is running for president and would be the youngest, first woman, and first Hindu president in our nation’s history. Many pundits have placed Gabbard in the center or even right of the Democratic Party. If so, the center or right of the Democratic Party is pretty leftist. Her first question was about American intervention in the rest of the world, and how she could be against American...

    DENVER -- A foundation is focused on driving clunkers off the road in hopes of ushering in cleaner air in Colorado. The Colorado Automobile Dealers Association started the Clear the Air Foundation in 2007. It's focused on cars that are more than 15 years old. Mark Zeigler, the Director of the foundation, said it's focused on these cars because they emit 100 times the pollution of new cars. Since it's inception, the foundation has pulled 4,000 clunkers off Colorado streets, with the goal of removing 650 cars a year. The foundation takes clunkers from dealerships for free and sells the...

    SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — A Utah couple said they're in love, but they're first cousins and it's illegal for them to marry in their home state. Michael Lee and his wife Angie tied the knot in Colorado where it is legal to marry. The couple said their love story began with a crush in second grade. "It's like second grade ,I remember, I stopped her mother-- I stopped her-- I said I'm going to marry Angie, and she said 'no I'm sorry you can't but you can be friends,'" Lee told KTVX. Family vacations would bring the two together,...

    Resolution declares Weld County to be a ‘Second Amendment sanctuary’ MARCH 6, 2019, BY CHUCK HICKEY WELD COUNTY, Colo. — Weld County on Wednesday became the third in Colorado to pass a resolution declaring to be a so-called “Second Amendment sanctuary county.” The Weld County Commission unanimously passed a resolution that will allow law enforcement officers not to comply with state gun laws that the commission and law enforcement deem “unconstitutional.” Fremont and Custer counties have passed similar resolutions. The move comes as the Colorado Legislature considers a so-called “red flag” bill that will allow family and household members or...

    We have a governor who bragged about a stakeholder process for the new oil and gas restrictions when, in fact, there was none– no enviros– no industry. Integrity meant working with constituents to draft problem-solving language. Drafting any legislation in back rooms and then being dishonest when it is introduced is not the definition of good policy making, let alone integrity. The evil seems to be a continued agenda with absolutely no desire to reach across the aisle to form good policy. From the introduction of bills which would create safe places to inject illegal drugs with new needles given...

    Jack Phillips is the Colorado cake shop owner who was sued by the state's civil rights commission  for not baking a cake for a gay wedding in 2012. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court where Phillips won his appeal against the civil rights commission by 7-2. In that decision, Justice Kennedy drew a clear line in the sand against the radical cultural left. In his decision he singled out a statement by Commissioner Diann Rice: I would also like to reiterate what we said in the hearing or the last meeting. Freedom of religion and religion...

    Men often take dumb risks by pounding drinks they should probably skip. It may have seemed like such a dumb stunt when former Democratic Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper threw back a shot of fracking fluid — but in fact it was perfectly safe. Hickenlooper knows what so many liberal environmentalists deny: The cocktail of water and chemicals that gas companies inject into the ground as part of the fracking process isn’t “poisonous” at all. He also knows what his party’s most popular figures could never admit: Fracking is a safe process that creates jobs, brings down energy costs, and helps...

    The Colorado Civil Rights Commission on Tuesday dropped its latest case against Christian cakeshop owner Jack Phillips, handing him a second victory against state officials over his refusal to create cakes for certain LGBT events. Mr. Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado, agreed in exchange to drop his lawsuit against the state, which he filed last year after the commission took action against him for declining to make a blue-and-pink cake to celebrate a transgender transition. Kristen Waggoner, who represents Mr. Phillips as Alliance Defending Freedom senior vice president, called the outcome “great news for everyone.” “We’re pleased...
