In his hasty removal of American forces from Afghanistan, President Biden utterly and destructively botched the withdrawal.  The consequences are horrifically and irreparably devastating, raising serious questions about the intelligence and planning used to execute Biden’s rash operation. There’s one question Coloradans must ask above all others, however: What did our resident Senate Intelligence Committee […]

There’s a movement afoot in the Colorado Republican Party to abandon the state’s open-primary system and exclusively use the caucus-assembly process.  The main argument against open primaries seems like common sense: unaffiliated voters should not be involved in determining who either party runs as their nominee for any position.  Unfortunately, opting out will generate unintended […]

In September 2019, I warned about the dangers of Gov. Jared Polis and his merry band of Green Little Dealers.  Unfortunately, their 2019 climate-centered policies are now coming to roost as Colorado struggles to pull out of the economic malaise brought about by that very same government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. “(T)he most pernicious […]

As downtown Denver businesses braced for the groundswell of patrons during the week’s MLB All-Star Game, one thing was already clear: they just don’t have enough workers.  The main culprit for this extraordinary problem is the ongoing unemployment insurance (UI) expansions. The staffing shortage is real, and it’s ongoing.  One small market near Coors Field […]

In his weekly Colorado Politics column Monday, the eloquent Miller Hudson wrote on striking an economic balance in society.  “Should we spread the wealth?” he asks.  “Or should we allow wealth to trickle down at the whim of the 1% of Americans who are capturing 99% of new earnings in the American economy?  There should […]

Last Thursday, Judge Daniel Domenico of the U.S. District Court for Colorado upheld the right of U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert to block a Democratic constituent from the Republican congresswoman’s personal Twitter feed. While Democrats may cry foul over this ruling, they shouldn’t fool themselves. Blocking political opponents on social media is a bipartisan pastime  The case Domenico […]

Last week, two prominent Colorado Democrats yet again proved themselves insincere political actors first and public servants last. I’m talking about embattled Denver Public Schools board member Tay Anderson and hyper-partisan Secretary of State Jena Griswold. Let’s start with Anderson. On Sunday, May 30, he announced he was “stepping back from everyday board functions until […]

At last Thursday’s Denver Public Schools protest, the district’s apparent focus on PR backfired.  Organized by 18-year-old Gigi Gordon, a 2021 North High School graduate, the protest was held to express two demands of the DPS board.  In unscripted testimony following the protest, Gigi summarized those demands. “We want new diplomas without Tay Anderson’s name on them, and […]

I don’t know about you, but when I come home with “single-use plastic bags” from Walmart or (ideally) Target, they are never just “single-use” for me. It’s something I learned from my mom — and my siblings and friends are the same way. I can sometimes get two or three uses out of a plastic […]

At the Leadership Program of the Rockies 2021 Retreat Friday evening, attendees witnessed a remarkable reminder of the value and importance of school choice and educational opportunity.  LPR’s annual Legacy Award was bestowed on Steve Schuck and his late wife, Joyce, for their many years of extraordinary advocacy and support for students in need through […]
