I’m going to reveal something I’ve never shared publicly before. This New Year’s Eve, it will be seven years since I didn’t jump off a parking garage.  For more than seven years of my life, I was treated for clinical depression and anxiety.  I saw a therapist and a psychiatrist on the regular.  I took various antidepressants […]

GOP concerns about election integrity are warranted. Americans should focus on three keys to ensuring election integrity, for now and the future. (Coauthored with former Colorado Deputy Secretary of State Suzanne Taheri (Staiert).) President Donald Trump’s campaign is embarking on a series of legal challenges in several states, pursuing allegations of voter fraud and process […]

A few weeks ago, I tested positive for COVID-19.  So did my parents, brother, sister and sister’s boyfriend.  It became a family affair.  I know more Coloradans who have contracted the coronavirus in the four weeks than in the previous four months combined.  Thus, I can see firsthand that the number of positive cases is rising, and this highly-contagious […]

Coauthored with former Colorado Deputy Secretary of State Suzanne Taheri (Staiert) President Trump’s campaign has powered ahead with lawsuits in several states, challenging voter fraud and technical problems. Depending on the facts of each case, Trump may be right to do so — and for reasons that are much bigger than himself or his campaign. […]

The year was 2004.  While I was only about 14 years old, I was already a political nerd eager to get involved in Republican politics and help reelect President George W. Bush.

Keith Nobles, avid outdoorsman and citizen of the Cherokee Nation, has been a camper and backcountry enthusiast for decades.  In recent years, he’s witnessed firsthand the astronomical increase in deadwood and beetle kill tucked in Colorado’s forests — coinciding directly with expanding, out-of-control fires. “Twenty-five years ago, in the Pike National Forest, I would regularly take […]

Detached leftist media elites can’t escape reality, no matter how hard they try to dismiss urban violence. Now their distorted view has enveloped local news outlets too. Forty-nine-year-old Lee Keltner was fatally shot following a “Patriot Muster” protest last Saturday afternoon in downtown Denver, blocks from the Colorado Capitol near the Denver Art Museum. The […]

I’ll be blunt: School districts are failing their students by pursuing remote learning.  Voters should not approve a single tax or bond measure requested by a school district that is not opened for in-person learning or is threatening to go back to full-remote. Unfortunately, districts like Cherry Creek and Aurora are preparing parents for the prospect […]

“Did you or did you not introduce a plan with John Kasich?” the incumbent asked his challenger, with confidence and eagerness in his voice.  “That’s the simple question.” Tragedy has again engulfed our capital city.
