    [...] Hickenlooper, founder of a beer brewery and a former mayor of Denver, opposed the historic 2012 measure that legalized pot for adults 21 and older. But in the interview published on Wednesday in Westword, he says legalization hasn't been so bad, after all. "Now I look at how far we've come, and I think there's a real possibility that we'll have a system that works... if you eliminate the black market, make it harder for kids to get marijuana. We can put more money into education for kids," he says. "The sky isn't falling. People thought it was the...

    A nifty piece from the Daily Mail. You would think a cabinet member who had every reason to assume that classified information would be circulating on her server would insist on a company renowned for security. Instead she went with a small outfit in Colorado, largely unknown outside the region, whose pipeline to the Clintons appears to have been the fact that their VP of sales was a big Democratic booster and got them some work at the 2008 Democratic convention.Were state secrets being stored on a server in an apartment bathroom?

    DENVER—Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s big gulp of water from the formerly orange Animas River wasn’t just icky, it was “reckless and irresponsible,” said New Mexico’s top environmental official. New Mexico environment department secretary Ryan Flynn said Mr. Hickenlooper’s decision to fill up his water bottle from the site of the EPA’s 3-million-gallon wastewater spill in Durango, Colorado, sends the wrong message. “If it’s true, it’s a reckless and irresponsible act by a public official,” said Mr. Flynn in the Farmington (N.M.) Daily Times. “He might as well stick 15 cigarettes in his mouth and light them all at the same...
  • Will EPA’s Clean Power Plan doom Colorado’s coal industries?

    Gov. John Hickenlooper has pledged that Colorado will comply with the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, but this effort to cut so-called “CO2 pollution” could come at a dear price to the state’s coal industry. ... Colorado is among the top states in coal production and consumption. In the year 2013, 64 percent of energy produced in Colorado came from coal, 20 percent from natural gas, and around 15 percent from various renewables including hydroelectric, biomass, solar and wind. The history of Colorado’s coal mining industry stretches over the past two centuries. Not to mention, coal jobs have a multiplier effect...

You might be surprised at just how little responsibility he feels you should take for yourself. Government should do what people individually canÂ’t do, or canÂ’t do well themselves.

    DENVER — Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper made good Friday on his promise to sue the federal government over its hotly contested move to list the Gunnison sage grouse under the Endangered Species Act. The Colorado Attorney General’s office filed a notice of intent to sue with Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and Fish and Wildlife Service director Daniel M. Ashe, arguing that the agency’s Nov. 12 decision to list the bird as threatened was flawed and failed to appreciate fully the impact of aggressive state and local conservation efforts. “The Service failed to use the best available science in its listing...

    LA Times ^ | Nov. 3, 2014 | Mark Z. Barabak
    Colorado's governor, intensely criticized over death-row reprieve, says he'd do it again. ... Part of Hickenlooper's problem has been the ambitous liberal agenda, from gays to guns, he signed into law in 2013 after a Democratic legislative spree. Part has been his habit of thinking out loud and his seeming eagerness to please all sides of an issue; a meeting this summer with hostile sheriffs turned into a political disaster when the governor equivocated about the gun-control laws he backed, upsetting both sides. But Hickenlooper will also have someone else to blame: Nathan Dunlap. In 1993, as a 19-year-old, Dunlap...

    DENVER (CBS4) – A new poll out Wednesday morning from Quinnipiac University shows Republican Bob Beauprez with a lead over Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper in Colorado’s governor’s race. The poll shows Beauprez with 45 percent and Hickenlooper with 40 percent. That’s a reversal from last week when Hickenlooper led the race by 1 percent.

    Just a week out from election day and a new poll released by Rasmussen today has former Rep. Bob Beauprez up by 2 points on Gov. John Hickenlooper, 49%-47%. This is a marked contrast from earlier this month when Hick was up by 4 points on Beauprez (50%-46%). And, when we look beyond the toplines, it doesn’t get any better for Hick. Beauprez is up by 7 points with those who have already cast their ballots (51%-44%), just like having money in the bank already. Even though Hick leads among those who haven’t cast a ballot (50%-46%), he has to...

    HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. — The quiet murmur of several dozen Republican activists crammed in a small office in this Denver suburb was broken Saturday morning by a jocular cry: “Hey, everybody, what’s going on?” Rep. Cory Gardner, the party’s Senate candidate — and its best shot at breaking a decade-long losing streak in top Colorado races — burst into the room wearing a blue-checkered work shirt and jeans, and immediately began shaking hands and posing for pictures. Rick Murray, 69, a financial broker, shook his head in admiration. “You see enthusiasm like that out of anybody else?” he said. It’s...

    PPP's newest Colorado poll finds very close races for both Governor and the Senate. Cory Gardner is up 46/43 on Mark Udall in the Senate race, while John Hickenlooper has a 45/44 advantage over Bob Beauprez in the Governor's race. Both Democrats are doing well with the groups Democrats tend to do well with in Colorado. Hickenlooper is up 49/39 with women, 60/28 with Hispanics, and 59/31 with young voters. Udall is similarly ahead 46/42 with women, 64/24 with Hispanics, and 59/22 with young voters. The problem for the Democrats is that they are down by significant margins with men-...

    Our nation is supposed to be a republic governed by laws- not men. Our elected officials are supposed to create and enforce the laws, not serve as the laws themselves. However, at a time when the mainstream media focuses on the pending corruption charges against Texas Governor Rick Perry for exercising his right to veto, they are deafeningly silent on the heinous and inexcusable corruption going on in Colorado as Democrat Governor John Hickenlooper threatens to commute the sentence of a convicted multi-murderer if he does not get re-elected. You may recognize the name as the name of the Democrat...

    If Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper (D) is not re-elected in November, he says he "could" respond to the loss by commuting the death sentence of mass shooter Nathan Dunlap.  Dunlap is the infamous killer who shot 5 and killed 4 at an Aurora Chuck E. Cheese in 1993. He was angered over being fired, and Denver Magazine 5280 reports that Dunlap was at his girlfriend's apartment having sex with her when the police tracked him down "only...a few hours" after the shootings. Dunlap was sentenced to death but when the date for his execution came up in 2013, Hickenlooper granted a "temporary reprieve."...

    Powerline Blog ^ | October 10, 2014 | John Hinderaker
    Colorado’s Senate race is trending Republican, as the most recent poll, by Fox News, shows Cory Gardner leading Mark Udall by six points. Udall has run a lackluster campaign dominated by a tired, over-the-top “war on women” theme, and this morning the Denver Post, not known as a bastion of Republicanism, endorsed Gardner. Still, the race is competitive on paper. So why has Harry Reid’s Senate Majority PAC just cancelled $289,000 worth of broadcast ads?
  • Colorado Governor Says Voters Were 'Reckless' to Legalize Marijuana

    Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper says his state's voters were "reckless" for voting to become the first state to legalize marijuana for recreational use. The Democrat's statement came during a debate Monday with his Republican opponent, Bob Beauprez, just four weeks before voters head to the polls for the state's hotly contested gubernatorial election. In 2012, more than 55 percent of voters in Colorado supported Amendment 64, which legalized marijuana for recreational use. The amendment aimed to regulate marijuana in roughly the same way alcohol is regulated.
