Cowardly Colorado Governor In Jeopardy of Losing 2014 Election

Published

on

Gov. John Hickenlooper’s approval ratings have been slipping recently due to his cowardly stand on the execution of convicted murderer Nathan Dunlap.
In 1993, 19 year old Nathan Dunlap had been fired from the Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant.  He didn’t take it too well and in act of revenge and wanting fame, he returned to the restaurant and starting shooting the staff.  In the end, 4 were dead and one was wounded.  Dunlap was tried and convicted of 4 counts of first degree murder and given the death sentence.
Seventeen years later, Dunlap has used up all of his appeals.  He was slated to be executed this August, which would have been the first execution in Colorado since 1997.  When the orders for Dunlap’s execution crossed the desk of Gov. Hickenlooper, he could not bring himself to sign them, even though he says that he respects the rule of law and the court and jury who tried and sentenced Dunlap to death.
Instead of signing the order for the execution and not wanting to commute the sentence, he issued a temporary stay of execution for as long as he is governor.  The temporary stay can be changed and rescinded by any future governor, but Hickenlooper was too cowardice to make the decision himself.
Prior to Hickenlooper’s non-action in the Dunlap case, he had an approval rating of 53%.  Since the display of cowardice, his approval ratings have dropped to 47%, a drop of 6% in less than 2 months.
A recent poll indicated that 67% of Coloradoans disapproved of Hickenlooper’s temporary stay of execution and coincidentally, 69% of the inhabitants of the Rocky Mountain state say they approve of the death penalty.
Hickenlooper is up for re-election in 2014 and already the polls are showing his once strong lead to be dwindling rapidly.  A Quinnipiac Poll revealed that Hickenlooper’s lead over Republican challenger Tom Tancredo, a former US congressman, is 42% versus 41%, a virtual tie.  When asked to vote between Hickenlooper and Republican Scott Gessler, the current Colorado Secretary of State, the results were 42% for Hickenlooper and 40% for Gessler.
Furthermore, the poll indicated that 49% disapproved of how the Democrat controlled state legislature had done their jobs while only 36% approved.  In the heart of Democrat land, respondents to the poll in Denver and Boulder also indicated a 45% disapproval and 41% approval rates.
It seems that a number of Coloradoans are not very pleased with the way the Democrats have run the state in recent months.  Between the anti-Second Amendment anti-gun laws, to the push for reliance on green energy, to Hickenlooper’s inaction on Nathan Dunlap, the people of the state are turning against their leadership.  We can only hope and pray that the trend continues and 2014 will see the ousting of the liberal Dems that have been ruining one of the most beautiful states in the country.

Letter Threatens To Burn Homes Of New Hampshire Trump Supporters

“Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election.”

President Trump supporters in two small New England cities have gotten menacing letters threatening to burn down their homes.

“Dear neighbor. You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election. We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make sure that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given “Fair Warning.” Always remember, it was “you” that started this Civil War. Be prepared to face the severe consequences of your pre-emptive actions against democracy.”

TDW:

Someone is sending letters to Trump supporters in New Hampshire, threatening to burn down their homes if President Trump loses the presidential election but will not concede defeat.

As WMUR reported, the letter, which Milford police stated has been sent to various homes in the town displaying support for the president.

[…]

Brookline police Chief Bill Quigley confirmed two Trump supporters in his town also received the letter. “I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat,” he admitted.

Quigley said he alerted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, adding that the perpetrator could be charged with a serious crime. He explained, “Not only with us, with criminal threatening. It’s on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level.” More

So instead of trying to talk to people to earn their vote they would rather threaten and scare people.  These people who did this have no idea who they are screwing with. Live Free or Die and if pressured, we are ready to defend ourselves and our homes.

Independent Pollster Frank Luntz: Voters Turned Off By ‘Condescending’ Harris, Pence ‘Was The Winner’

Independent Pollster Frank Luntz: Voters Turned Off By ‘Condescending’ Harris, Pence ‘Was The Winner’

Pollster Frank Luntz told Fox News after the vice presidential debate last night that Vice President Mike Pence was the winner of the debate, saying that voters were turned off by Kamala Harris’ “condescending” and “abrasive” attitude toward Mike Pence.

“The complaint about Kamala Harris was that she was abrasive and condescending,” said Frank Luntz, who analyzed reactions from voters in various swing states. “The complaint about Mike Pence was that he was too tired, but [he was] vice presidential, or presidential. If this is a battle over style and substance — which is often the case with undecided voters because they simply do not choose on policy, they also choose on persona — this was Mike Pence’s night.”

Frank Luntz said that voters disliked the candidates dodging questions but overall they were much happier with the way the debate went vs. the way the first debate went.

Frank Luntz said that while voters were frustrated with the vice president for repeatedly running over his allotted time, “Harris’ reactions to Pence — the smiling, the smirking, the scowling’ left them far ‘angrier’ with her performance,” Fox News reported.

Luntz said that voters were “more agitated with Kamala’s presentation than they were with Mike Pence.”

Twitter has a few thoughts:

Trump Vows Immediate $1,200 Check To Americans If Pelosi Moves Bill

Democrats and Republicans have been quarreling for months over another stimulus bill to help millions of Americans struggling financially during the coronavirus pandemic. But the president has a plan to cut through all their red tape.

“If I am sent a Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200), they will go out to our great people IMMEDIATELY. I am ready to sign right now. Are you listening Nancy?” Donald Trump wrote on Twitter this morning.

Trump had another message for Pelosi: “Move Fast, I Am Waiting To Sign!”

As the leader of the Democrats in the House, Nancy Pelosi could recommend that her caucus to support such a bill, which likely would move quickly through the Republican-controlled Senate and make it to Trump’s desk in the Oval Office for his signature.

On The View today, Nancy Pelosi said: “It’s hard to see any clear sane path on what he’s doing but the fact is, he saw the political downside of his statement of walking away from the negotiations …he’s rebounding from a terrible mistake he made yesterday and the Republicans in Congress are going down the drain with him on that.”

“But I will say this, it is really important for us to come to this agreement. When the president just popped off and made that announcement without even informing us that that was the case, he insulted the Constitution of the United States.”

Nancy is the most powerful woman in the world? Keep on dreaming Joy Behar! How fitting… The biggest hypocrite in the country on the most hypocritical show on TV.

Steve Cortes Hammers Chris Wallace: “He had to debate not just Joe Biden, but you as well”

Steve Cortes Hammers Chris Wallace: "He had to debate not just Joe Biden, but you as well"

Fox News Channel host and registered Democrat Chris Wallace aggressively lectured at length Trump campaign advisor Steve Cortes during a messy appearance on Fox News today.

Chris Wallace yelled at Steve Cortes and continuously interrupted him while he tried to answer the unhinged questions from Wallace.

“The way you are starting to harangue me now reminds me of what you did to the president during that debate on Tuesday night,” he said. “He had to debate not just Joe Biden, but you as well.”

Wallace rejected that accusation and said it was a Trump campaign talking point. “You were not a neutral moderator,” Cortes said. “What I don’t think is okay for you to become the effective opposition to the president.”

Chris Wallace continues his nasty attacks even now that President Donald Trump is at Walter Reed. He’s blaming the president for contracting the China virus. He’s a partisan hack and Fox News approves of this. There’s no reason for a conservative to appear on Fox News Channel any longer because they’re not going to get a fair shake.

Scalise: Pelosi Turned Down Offer To Implement Coronavirus Testing On Capitol Hill

Published

on

By

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reportedly refused to implement Coronavirus testing for lawmakers in the nation’s capital, according to a top lawmaker.

“Congressman Davis is exactly correct,” Scalise said. “I mean these protocols have been out there and the testing capabilities have been out there for a long time. They were offered to the speaker and she turned it down.”

“I think it’s something that should have been in Congress for a few weeks now,” Scalise continued. “But ultimately that’s what the speaker decided to do.”

Scalise’s remarks come after Davis sent the following letter to Pelosi on Friday:

I am writing again today to reiterate my concern that we do not have a comprehensive health monitoring system and testing program for our Capitol Hill campus in order to help us do our part to stop the spread of coronavirus. I have stood ready to engage with your office and my counterpart on the Committee on House Administration for months, but my requests have gone unanswered. While I appreciate that the attending physician has been able to conduct COVID-19 testing for members who have symptoms or have been exposed, provide very limited staff testing, and advise offices on contact tracing, our ability to monitor the health and safety of the House is severely lacking because you have failed to implement a plan.

Universities, public institutions, private businesses, and communities across the country have embraced technologies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Yet, the House has failed to adopt similar tools that are now being used nationwide. As testing has advanced and become more readily available, the House’s posture on testing has not evolved from where we were months ago. Reports of changes to test offerings by the attending physician announced today are misleading as the criteria for receiving a test from the Office of the Attending Physician (OAP) remains largely unchanged. I’m concerned this has created confusion and misled everyone who works on Capitol Hill to believe testing options have been expanded.

The attending physician gives recommendations to our community, but the policies on how we govern the House are set by you and a widespread testing program has not been adopted because you have opposed it. This institution, similar to the White House, must continue to function to serve the American people during this pandemic. As a result, thousands of people who support this institution, report on this institution, and protect this institution, must continue to come to work and have not had the luxury of staying in their homes and working by proxy or remotely like some of your caucus members.

Our testing criteria should not reflect the news of the day or be to politically shield your office when difficult news breaks. This is not an acceptable way to communicate and continues to show your partisanship on this issue. Additionally, today provided a stark reminder that you and other members of Congress were able to receive a COVID-19 test, while in other instances essential workers of the House have been denied the same test because your office has failed to implement what you have called for nationwide. This is a “do as I say, not as I do” approach to governing that has been politicized when policies are inconsistently communicated and enforced and falls short of what our constituents deserve.

I reiterate my desire to work with you and stand willing to work with your team to develop and execute a plan that provides comprehensive and continuous health monitoring and testing capabilities for our transient congressional population and all who support the first branch of government.

BET Co-Founder Strongly Suggests He Won’t Vote For Biden

BET Co-Founder Strongly Suggests He Won’t Vote For Biden

Bob Johnson, founder, and chairman of RLJ Companies: “I will take the devil I know over the devil I don’t know any time of the week,” he told “Squawk Box.” “You’re better off dealing with somebody you know where they’re going to be than somebody you really have no idea what decisions they will make at such a critical time.”

“This was like a schoolyard fight over who had the best-looking girlfriend,” Johnson said. “It was a waste of an hour and a half that gave no guidance, no direction at all as to where the country will go after this election. But having summed it up in that language, where I come out as a businessman, I will take the devil I know over the devil I don’t know any time of the week. And that seems to be what business people are confronting today.”

When CNBC anchor Rebecca Quick asked if Johnson was endorsing President Trump, he said that Americans are better off dealing with whoever is already at the helm of the ship. He did not directly endorse President Trump, but he severely criticized Joe Biden.

“I’m not endorsing anybody,” Johnson said. “What I’m saying is if I’m a businessperson, what you want more than anything else, particularly coming out of something as horrible as this pandemic, and its impact on not only the U.S. economy but the global economy, the more you know about who will be pulling the lever of economic growth, economic development, taxes, stimulus, regulation. In my opinion, you’re better off dealing with somebody you know where they’re gonna be than somebody you really have no idea what decisions they will make at such a critical time.”

“I absolutely do not know what Vice President Biden will do. I haven’t heard anything coherent out of what he said he would do,” he added.

Robert Johnson has been seriously critical of the Democratic Party throughout this election cycle. In June, Johnson called for a black independent party, citing Joe Biden’s now-infamous “you ain’t black” comment.

“I’ve been convinced for a long time that 40 million African Americans who tend to vote as a bloc in one of the two parties limit their leverage in getting action from both parties,” he said. “I think it’s time that African Americans form an independent party, not be an appendage of one party or ignored by the other party, and using their leverage in a Democracy to say, ‘we stand for things that are principally focused on the 40 million African Americans,’ and not have that diluted by trying to be a part of another party where the interests may diverge, and oftentimes do diverge.”
