Just one day after an Islamic State-inspired terrorist murdered 10 white people in Colorado, Democratic Party senators demanded a racist, anti-white ban on further cabinet appointments for white people. Senators Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) and Mazie Hirono (D-HI), issued statements on Tuesday: “I am a ‘no’ vote, on the floor, on all non-diversity nominees… I will vote for racial minorities and LGBTQ but anybody else, I’m not voting for,” Duckworth told reporters. Duckworth and Hirono’s statements hold special weight considering the 50-50 make up of the U.S. Senate, meaning every vote counts. The White House has already panicked, and sent sympathetic
Ahmad Al-Issa has been named by multiple sources as the suspect in the shooting that killed 10 in Boulder, Colorado yesterday. A motive hasn’t been identified yet, but we’ll update this story as we get information. Ahmad Al-Issa’s purported Facebook page, which has now been removed, included a lot of anti-Trump messaging, as well as pro-Islam messages. He also appeared to be a reader of PBS, The Intercept, and The Washington Post. Like clockwork, the narrative is already shifting to “mental illness,” with Al-Issa’s brother calling him “very anti-social” and paranoid, adding that, in high school, he would describe “being
All eyes on Tuesday were on marquee races of the 2019 general elections in Virginia, Kentucky, and Mississippi. In Virginia, another blue wave devastated the GOP. In Kentucky, the incumbent Republican governor trails in a race that’s too close to call, while Republicans handily swept other statewide races on the ballot. Republicans also swept the statewide races in Mississippi. But elections in New Jersey and a handful of ballot initiatives have been overlooked. And there’s one more election coming up next week. In Tucson, Ariz., a strong majority rejected a ballot measure which would have declared it a sanctuary city. Tucson,
In a win for religious liberty, the state of Colorado has decided to drop its case against Christian baker Jack Phillips after years of legal hostility. Phillips is the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop and was the leading figure in last summer’s 7-2 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that overturned Colorado’s attempt to force him to create a cake for a same-sex wedding. The ruling was a win for both Phillips and religious liberty. Yet, less than a month later, another complaint was filed against him for his refusal to bake a cake that celebrated a transgender transition. The state of Colorado
The Colorado House voted 42 to 20 in favor of HB 1129 a bill that bans the state's mental health care providers from practicing conversion therapy on minors.
There is a comprehensive sex education bill under consideration in the Colorado House of Representatives that would significantly erode the rights of parents in the state. HB 19-1032, sponsored by State Representative Susan Lontine (D-Denver), State Senator Nancy Todd (D-Aurora), and State Senator Don Coram (R-Montrose), would prohibit schools that teach human sexuality from providing abstinence-only sex education or teach gender norms. The bill also prohibits schools from using federal funds that require schools to teach abstinence-only sex education and would also prevent the State Board of Education from granting any exceptions even to charter schools which have a greater
With the dust mostly settled from the midterm elections (minus ongoing attempts to steal votes in Florida), Democrats are celebrating their victory in reclaiming the House of Representatives, and Republicans are taking solace in the fact that Mitch McConnell’s judge-confirming-juggernaut factory just increased the size of its infantry. So while on the national stage it seems neither side can claim a decisive victory, rest assured, there was one conclusive loser on election night — the environmental fringe. The drubbing liberal environmentalists received during the midterms was so significant that even the liberal news organization Vox conceded that Big Green couldn’t muster
Colorado baker Jack Phillips won a resounding victory at the Supreme Court earlier this year in a 7-2 decision which upheld his religious freedom. But that hasn’t stopped the so-called Colorado Civil Rights Commission (CCRC) from continuing to harass him. You are probably familiar with the original story: Phillips owns Masterpiece Cakeshop and has served all customers at his bakery without regard to their identity or beliefs. When a same-sex couple asked Phillips to create a custom wedding cake for their ceremony, Phillips respectfully and politely declined because it would go against his deep Christian convictions. The couple filed a
