    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...

    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...

    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...
  • In Her First Town Hall, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Came Off As A Leftist, Not a Centrist

    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...
  • Hickenlooper defends fracking and science. Can Democrats swallow that?

    Washington Examiner ^ | March 5 2019 | Washington Examiner
    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...

    VIDEO John Hickenlooper announced his candidacy for President today to universal ennui. However, the one place that is not completely oblivious to his candidacy is the DUmmie FUnnies. We here wish to become the semi-official chronicler of Hickenlooper's exploits on the 2020 campaign trail from a humor perspective. In fact, when Hickenlooper campaigns in Florida, he has an open invitation to be interviewed by the DUmmie FUnnies. It could well be his only interview invitation in the Sunshine State. Therefore let it be announced unto all the world that John Hickenlooper is now being endorsed (it could be his first...

    Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper on Monday announced he is running for president, launching a 2020 campaign in which he will lean on his Western roots and decades of executive experience. He made the announcement in a video titled "Standing Tall," which tracks Hickenlooper's life from laid-off geologist, to owner of a brew pub, to mayor of Denver and to governor, and touts the Democrat's experience in a variety of fields as a key reason he should be the person to take on President Donald Trump in 2020. Hickenlooper casts the President as a "bully" in the more than two-minute...

    More than 100 House Democrats -- nearly half of the new majority -- have signed on to a new single-payer healthcare bill that supporters describe as "battle ready." If by "battle ready," they mean, "extremely controversial, deeply politically risky, and totally bereft of any acknowledgement of the proposal's eye-poppingly exorbitant costs," they're undoubtedly correct. Politico's story on the legislation is full of extraordinary tidbits and quotes. Here are some of the most important facts we've learned: (1) The bill "doesn’t include a price tag or specific proposals for financing the new system, which analysts estimate would cost tens of trillions...

    DENVER — Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is expected to announce on March 7 he is running for President of the United States. As first reported by the Colorado Sun, Hickenlooper’s campaign team has received a permit for an event in Denver’s Civic Center Park. “Hickenlooper is going to announce he is running for President of the United States at this event,” Andy Boian, a Colorado political strategist who has informally advised Hickenlooper over the years, said on the record. A second source confirmed Hickenlooper’s intentions to make the announcement near the venues that shaped his political career. Denver’s Civic...

    We’ve had some conflicting headlines this week when it comes to the 2020 Democratic nomination race. One of the more excitable notes from The Hill indicates that Kamala Harris has seen a “notable rise” in the polls since announcing her candidacy. That may be true, but the notable rise in question still only puts her at around 13%. In the meantime, two men who haven’t even decided if they want to run are still lapping the rest of the field. Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are the most popular potential Democratic presidential candidates, but...

    Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) is throwing his support behind President Trump’s 2020 reelection bid, a move that could stir trouble for his own electoral prospects next year. Gardner, a onetime critic of Trump, told IJR that he was backing the president, because he believed Trump would do right by the people of Colorado. “Look, there are things here – look, I’ve made it very clear that where I agree with the president, we will agree or where I disagree, we will disagree,” Gardner said. “But I’m going to fight like hell for Colorado, and we’ve done some good things for...

    Colorado cake artist Jack Phillips, owner of the Masterpiece Cakeshop (Screenshot) ( – A federal district court ruled Friday that Colorado cannot block an attempt by Colorado cake artist Jack Phillips to sue the state over its “hostility” towards him and his Christian beliefs. Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) represents Phillips, owner of the Masterpiece Cakeshop, in the lawsuit. As previously reported , the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, in June 2018, saying the commission “violated the Free Exercise Clause” by requiring Phillips to go against his religious beliefs about gay marriage...

John Hickenlooper (D) are mulling a presidential bid in 2020, with Kasich likely at the top of the ticket. According to a source close to the negotiations, the discussions arose after the two governors got to know each other in conferences after the 2016 elections.

    This morning, Face the Nation host John Dickerson interviewed Colorado governor John Hickenlooper whom he described as "candid" based on a book he wrote. However, as the interview progressed, it became very apparent that rather than being candid, Hickenlooper was robotically reciting Democrat talking points so sycophantically loyal to Hillary Clinton that even many Democrats would be embarrassed to repeat them.
