    Days after “social justice” riots erupted in downtown Denver last weekend, destroying businesses and launching fireworks at police, Colorado’s Democrat senator and its nominee to oust the state’s Republican incumbent have yet to condemn the political violence. Sen. Michael Bennet, re-elected in 2016, and former Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, who is running to unset Republican Sen. Cory Gardner this November, have joined the vast array of Democrats turning a blind eye to the lawless unrest in their states while cities burn. “They brought weapons to the table. They had guns. They brought explosives, axes, machetes, and had one intent, purpose...

    Colorado Supreme Court upholds 2013 large-capacity gun magazine ban as constitutional By: Blair Miller DENVER – The Colorado Supreme Court upheld the state’s ban on large-capacity gun magazines as constitutional in a ruling issued Monday nearly seven years after the law passed in the wake of the Aurora theater shooting. “The legislation is a reasonable exercise of the police power that has neither the purpose nor effect of nullifying the right to bear arms in self-defense. Accordingly, the court affirms the judgment of the court of appeals,” Justice Monica M. Márquez wrote in the opinion. Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and...

    The Colorado Independent Ethics Commission slapped former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper on Friday with the highest ethics penalty for his use of a corporate jet and Maserati limo. The ethics commission voted to fine Hickenlooper, a 2020 Senate Democrat candidate, $2,750 for ethics violations. The Colorado board fined the former governor for allowing corporations to cover the cost of a private jet trip to Connecticut, a Maserati limousine ride, as well as elegant dinners in 2018. The commission ruled unanimously last week that Hickenlooper violated Colorado’s gift ban in June 2018 when he attended the secretive Bilderberg meetings in Italy....

    Last week, I was very critical of the 13-year-old girl who spray-painted Seattle City Hall in the name of climate change with an activist group. I said that I didn’t understand how parents could allow their kids to be used by these climate zealots.(snip) As I always try to do when I criticize people, I invited the girl and her mom to come on the show.(snip) The girl’s mom is very upset because of what I said,(snip) Here’s my frustration. The reason this 13-year-old girl was in the news was because the climate activists with whom she was working recorded...

    NYT ^ | Aug. 23, 2019 Updated 10:29 a.m. ET | By Jeffery C. Mays
    Trailing badly in the polls and in fund-raising for 2020, Mayor Bill de Blasio hopes that an hour on CNN Sunday before the nation’s voters can change his standing. He’s entrenched toward the rear in fund-raising totals. He rejects the validity of the various polls showing him at zero percent. And he also acknowledges that he will probably not qualify for the third Democratic presidential debate next month. Yet Mayor Bill de Blasio refuses to “accept the premise” of questions about the wisdom of his continued candidacy, even as other candidates who shared his political standing, like Gov. Jay Inslee...

    Well, that's the end of the road for presidential candidate John Hicklenlooper. But it's just the beginning for Senate candidate John Hickenlooper. The former Colorado governor gave it his best shot but never exceeded an average of 1 percent national support in his 2020 campaign. The press repeatedly asked him why he was running for the White House and not the Senate, where he could be much more influential, but he insisted Congress wasn't for him. “I’m not cut out to be a senator,” Hickenlooper said in February. “Senators don’t build teams. Senators sit and debate in small groups, which is...

Even before his presidential bid crashed and burned in spectacular fashion, Democrats had been pleading with him to drop out and take a run at Cory Gardner’s Senate seat. Apparently, Hickenlooper is taking the Vox populi, vox Dei approach because he announced this morning that he will be doing precisely that. (Associated Press)

    On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, during an interview with former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, CNN host Ana Cabrera failed to inform viewers of some very important facts as she discussed the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate's successes in passing gun control in his home state in 2013. As the CNN host asked the Democratic presidential candidate about the issue of how to get at least some Republicans to go along with such measures, she failed to note that violent crime has increased substantially in Colorado every year since the passage of more gun control in 2013. What's more, violent crime had been...
