Gun control has been at the top of the leadership’s to-do list since before the legislature convened
Colorado Democrats have allegedly been working on gun-control legislation for months, but this week’s unveiling of a proposed eight-bill package on firearms appeared to have been thrown together in about 10 minutes.
For one, there were no bills introduced at Tuesday’s press conference, only descriptions of bills. Senate President John Morse and House Speaker Mark Ferrandino explained that the bills would be dropped soon, some as early as this week. Read more »
Panetta was portrayed by ‘The Sopranos’ James Gandolfini in the film
Without being exposed to so much as a “pull my finger,” Defense Secretary Leon Panetta finally confessed the obvious: waterboarding gave the United States the intelligence needed to run Osama bin Laden to ground.
Panetta was discussing the movie “Zero Dark Thirty” on Meet the Press when he dropped the little nugget. Read more »
HEFNER: “There is a dramatic increase in gun violence when it is warmer”
Lawyers like to say that when the law is on your side, argue the law; when the facts are on your side, argue the facts. When the facts and the law are against you, pound on the table.
The anthropogenic warming crowd has a possibly less effective approach. Global temperatures are turning against them, trends are running in the opposite direction of what they predicted and they need something on which to pound. Read more »
Democratic lawmakers have a political vendetta against Gessler, who has run afoul of the left by making it his mission to fight voter fraud
When it comes to attacking Secretary of State Scott Gessler, clearly no price is too high for Colorado Democrats.
A push by state Sen. Lois Tochtrop (D-Thornton) to conduct a state audit of Gessler’s office finances failed on a party-line 4-4 vote Tuesday in the Senate Audit Committee. Read more »
A team of former NASA scientists says most of the alarm about man-made climate change ”results from the output of unvalidated computer models”
Bad, bad news for Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall and the rest of the kids at Climate Reality Project.
First James Hansen has to confess that the climate hasn’t warmed in a decade and the Meteorological Office in the United Kingdom was forced to up the ante to 16 years, and now some real scientific types, including actual rocket scientists, have leaped into the fray, proving if nothing else that Al Gore spoke with forked tongue on the subject of “scientific consensus.” Read more »
Udall apparently scored an inauguration ticket to for one of the state’s most combative Green Lobby campaigners
We tend to operate under the theory that nothing surprises us when it comes to Senator Mark Udall (D-Colo).
He’s married to one of the environmental movement’s queen bees; he pushes for massive federal subsidies for wind power on one hand while railing against tax credits for Colorado job creators (natural gas companies) on the other hand. Read more »
THE DECIDER? Obama channeled Al Gore during his inaugural address, saying that the science of global warming was decided
President Obama’s second term is beginning to look a lot like Al Gore’s first. Obama took the opportunity of his inaugural address to say that his term would be aimed at addressing climate change.
Good thing he neglected to mention “global warming” to shivering the crowd, most of whom were apparently warming their hands on bongs, as he might have gotten a completely different reaction than he did with the “climate change” talk. Read more »
Maggie Fox’s patron, Al Gore, had a big payday when he sold Current TV to Al Jazeera for $500 million petrodollars
Ever think that the globaloney warming movement was all about the money? Well, you were onto something.
Maggie Fox, aka Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall, sent out yet another begging letter (OK, they call them fundraising appeals) to well-heeled but gullible types in which Fox repeated the canard that 2012 was the hottest year on record. But no sooner had Fox’s Climate Reality Project (CRaP) letters hit the web, Fox’s buddy, Jim Hansen, dropped a bombshell. Read more »

Once a public official known for his independence, Salazar returns to Colorado unmasked as a political lackey
Colorado’s Ken Salazar has resigned after four years at Interior Secretary, and the sad part is, nobody is particularly sorry to see him go.
Salazar isn’t leaving under the same kind of ethical cloud as is another Obama administration figure, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson. But Salazar returns to Colorado greatly diminished in stature since his nomination four years ago. Read more »
