Mr. Obama chiding the IRS for harassing conservative groups is about as believable as Jordan criticizing the ref who didn’t call him for pushing off in the 98 finals
Cheap Seats has noticed that President Obama has declared it “outrageous” that the Internal Revenue Service targeted his political opposition, or as he calls them, “enemies,” during the heat of the 2012 presidential campaign in which Obama triumphed over Mitt Romney. Read more »
GLOBAL WARMING? The tornado count seems to be among the lowest on record thanks to the cold spring
The echo chambers of the Church of Global Warming are reverberating like the bottom of Keith Richards drums with the news that the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere is hooting off the charts. Not so effusive are they, however, about the paucity of tornados in the Midwest. Read more »
Front Range liberals run the Legislature, and the reality is that rural interests have been given short shrift
The Denver Post has deigned to inform the rough but adorable folk of Colorado’s hinterlands that Gov. John Hickenlooper is really their BFF.
The Post, always eager to employ one of those clever twists sure to amuse the sophisticated readers on 17th Street and around Washington Park while simultaneously going over the low-sloping foreheads in Delta, Meeker, Brush and Alamosa, cleverly titled the piece by Alicia Caldwell, “Hickenlooper vs. the hicks? Hardly.” Read more »
Several Democratic lawmakers have expressed concerns about Obamacare in recent weeks. Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) isn’t one of them.
Sen. Mark Udall likes to talk the outdoors, his deep devotion (when convenient) to the Second Amendment, the environment, yadda, yadda.
But it seems that President Obama’s got his tongue, when it comes to his signature “achievement,” Obamacare. Read more »
ABOUT FACE? Has the left-shifted 180 degrees on the so-called issue of climate change?
Ol’ Al “The Bamboozler” Gore, America’s former future president and current, er, not-so Current TV owner, is once again trolling for “Climate Leaders.”
Al sent out a missive via Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall’s little enterprise, the Climate Reality Project, better known as CRaP, late last month. Read more »
Conservation Colorado wants more lobbyists, but their political allies control both legislative chambers
We at Cheap Seats were incredibly moved by the fundraising plea sent out Saturday by Conservation Colorado bemoaning the plight of the poor, defenseless environmental movement.
“Outnumbered 20 to 1,” the money-grab begins, and it’s not referring to the Democratic-Republican ratio in the legislature. Read more »
Now you know why Bennet hasn’t been on TV pitching the immigration bill he helped write
A hearty tongue-in-cheek congratulations is in order for Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman and U.S. Senator Michael Bennet (D-Colorado).
You see, according to Bennet’s buddy Alison Sherry at the Denver Post, the DSCC has broken its previous fundraising record – raising a whopping $13.6 million so far this year under Mr. Bennet’s leadership. Read more »
As they say in Alarmists Anonymous, you can’t explain the global temperature without first acknowledging it
Of course if all they had to explain was a flatline in global temperatures, the job would be a great deal easier.
As it is, scientists are having difficulty merely acknowledging the obvious. They will hardly discuss the fact that the British Metropolitan Office has noted that Al Gore’s infamous fever is no more than the bead of forehead sweat caused by the discovery of, shall we say, trouser textile extremity flammability?

The video challenges anti-fracking claims made by Boulder Commissioner (and longtime green lobby activist) Elise Jones
Surprisingly, Elise Jones has been caught in the act of making it up as she goes along. Not that it was a surprise that Jones, the longtime head of the Colorado Environmental Coalition, was, shall we say, uninformed in her debate recently with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.
Nor was it surprising that Jones figured she could just make stuff up. The surprise was that someone might actually listen to Jones’ made-up massacre of the facts and nail her on it. Read more »
ProgressNow has encouraged supporters of the left-wing agenda to take to Twitter with the hashtag #ProudToPay
If you’re grumbling about filing your taxes today, look on the bright side: You’re part of the revolution.
The tireless lefties at ProgressNow Colorado, who are never so upbeat as when they’re taking other people’s money, have an April 15 Facebook post that combines the best of the Cultural Revolution with a dash of the old Soviet Union’s Young Pioneers. It shows a line of smiling schoolchildren with the message, “Taxes Teach Kids.” Read more »
