Swinging Colorado Back
“Colorado is no longer politically purple. Nope. These days it’s somewhere between Air Force and Midnight on the blue scale.” Curtis Hubbard, editor of the editorial page for the Denver Post, declared the above earlier this year in an article detailing the success of progressive Democrats in legislating restrictions on the 2nd Amendment, providing in-state tuition to illegal immigrants, and enshrining into law the long | Read More »
Status check on various gunmakers’ flights from various states.
Let’s look at the practical results of gun control, shall we? Three states have recently signed into law some hefty gun control laws; what were the results? Colorado: Magpul is now making some magazines and sights outside of the state. They’re also working on a new HQ. Connecticut: PTR Industries will be moving out of the state shortly. It’s rumored that other companies will follow. | Read More »
AUDIO: What’s $1 billion worth? A coin flip according to Colorado’s Evie Hudak.
In Colorado on Wednesday, an amendment to an already massive education bill was up for a vote and State Senator Evie Hudak treated it with all of the importance of a game of pictionary challenging the other members to “get this done within 2 minutes.” When Republican Senator Owen Hill objected to the speed of the process and questioned whether he could make a competent | Read More »
Meet John Hickenlooper, now-endangered Democratic Governor of Colorado.
I’m calling Gov. Hickenlooper endangered for a reason: he just made a rather poor life choice. You see, the fellow bowed to pressure from East Coast liberals and signed into law today an effective firearms ban masquerading as a “high capacity magazine ban.” John Hickenlooper is apparently just self-aware enough to realize what problems this is going to cause him down the line: “[Hickenlooper] said | Read More »
Democratic Colorado senator Evie Hudak to rape survivor: “Statistics are not on your side.”
Quick background here: essentially, Colorado Democrats have decided to respond to recent criminal mass murders by legislating bans on high-capacity magazines, banning concealed carry, taxing legitimate gun purchases, and requiring background checks before private transferal of firearms. And, oh, yes, Colorado Democrats also want to make gun manufacturers liable for crimes committed with those guns, but that’s scheduled for later… what’s that? How would any | Read More »
Gun Rights Activists Descend on the Colorado Capitol to Be Heard
As the the Colorado Senate began debate on a series of anti-Second Amendment measures this morning, protesters supportive of the right to bear arms descended upon the capitol to make there voices heard. Drivers circled the capitol complex with horns blaring, while protesters lined the street with signs and flags and an airplane circled above with a sign that read “Hick, don’t take our guns.” | Read More »
Morse’s Bill Profiles African Americans While Claiming Gun Manufacturer Liability Bill Won’t Lead To Profiling
After concerns were raised over the possibility that Sen. John Morse’s (D-Colorado Springs) “Assault Weapon Responsibility Act” would force gun dealers to engage in profiling, Morse promptly denied the claim, despite precedent in the bill that would specifically profile and target African Americans. According to the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence, “African-Americans have the highest rates of firearm death (including homicides, suicides and unintentional | Read More »
Colorado Senate Meeting to Restrict 2nd Amendment TODAY
Colorado Democrats have gone too far, and the time to stop them is now. On Monday morning the Colorado Senate will take up a package of anti-second amendment measures, four of which have already been passed in the House. It is time for conservatives to take a stand against this assault on our rights. The Democrats in Colorado control both chambers of the legislature and | Read More »
Magpul ready to flee Colorado gun-grabbing laws.
I’m pretty sure that Magpul is not bluffing, here: Colorado’s largest and most profitable manufacturer of high-capacity ammunition magazines has vowed to leave the state if lawmakers pass a measure banning the devices — a move officials with the company say could cost hundreds of jobs and upward of $85 million in potential spending this year. Magpul’s threat has Democratic lawmakers scrambling to strike a | Read More »
Our Colorado News Edits Out Fact, Replaces With Union Propaganda
Jane Reuter, a reporter for Our Colorado News, wrote an article on February 8 which was favorable to the Douglas County School District (DCSD) board’s fiscal governance. Then, for reasons unknown, Reuter’s article content and title were edited three days after publication to include propaganda from a union front group which has actively opposed the DCSD board.

Gov. John Hickenlooper (D, CO) to set up task force to stymie pot legalization.
I’m translating. Gov. John Hickenlooper will create a task force to deal with the fallout from the state’s legalization of marijuana use, possession and sales. ‘Fallout.’ See, right there you can determine the tone that the Denver Post was encountering from the office of the Governor. Later on… The task force is to include state officials, lawmakers, marijuana advocates and other “stakeholders” — likely a | Read More »
Dem playbook in action, voting machines stealing Colorado
Some of you may remember how much fun the vote count was in Florida back in 2000. It seemed destined to go on forever until the U.S. Supreme Court stepped in. More of you may remember 2004 the last time we had a brutal get out the vote fight down to the wire. The DNC’s 2004 Colorado Election Manual is a helpful reminder of what Democrats can be expected to do to try win President Obama’s reelection. Page 54 of the manual instructs:
“If no signs of intimidation techniques have emerged yet, launch a pre-emptive strike…”
With the presidential contest too close to call, Obama’s Justice Department dispatching hundreds of lawyers to 23 states and Democrats having 2,500 lawyers stationed across Ohio, 600 in Cuyahoga County alone, to “monitor” elections there are bound to be more shenanigans than we can imagine. Don’t forget Obama’s Attorney General decided not to go after the New Black Panther Party members who were intimidating voters in 2008.
So it is troubling that we are hearing numerous reports of voting machines recording votes intended for Romney as votes for Obama.
Colorado’s KRDO NewsChannel 13 reports that the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office is investigating after more than a dozen Pueblo voters say voting machines switched their pick from Mitt Romney to Barack Obama.
One Romney voter, told KRDO that when she hit the touchscreen for Romney, a check mark appeared next to Obama’s name. She said she asked for help to fix the problem, but still feels unsure about her vote:

FieldWorks, SEIU, AFL-CIO, Colorado Civic Engagement Roundtable, and Colorado’s ACORN Ground Game
A coalition of unions has coordinated with FieldWorks, a Washington-based consulting firm, to provide ground support for President Obama and liberal Colorado candidates. The Service Employees International Union (SEIU), AFL-CIO and the Colorado Civic Engagement Roundtable have retained FieldWorks, an organization with many similarities to the now-defunct Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), according to documents uncovered by Media Trackers.
