Like most everyone else, when U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) made his wild claims about surveillance of the Trump administration, I was a bit confused about the purpose. He seemed to be acknowledging that they had been caught up in monitoring of foreign adversaries via legally obtained FISA warrants. This indicates that members of Trump’s administration were talking to the bad guys we were monitoring. It certainly didn’t support Trump’s claim that Obama had him “wiretapped.” Now today he has come out to say there is no evidence of the wiretapping Trump claimed.
Colorado State Rep. Justin Everett (R-Littleton) posted this on Facebook recently. It’s an assertion without evidence that “contrary to what you may have heard…wages go up and unemployment goes down” in so-called “Right to Work” states.
Colorado GOP Vice Chair Derrick Wilburn is either one of the most dishonest politicians in Colorado or one of the most ignorant (or perhaps a mixture of both). In today’s example, he posts old video of a confrontation between protesters and police from last May and implies it just happened. I don’t know if he actually believes it happened recently or not, but he doesn’t indicate to his audience that it’s old news, with predictable results:
I ran across this story about a “Rifle woman” going to Washington for a Donald Trump healthcare “listening session”. It seems strange to hold a listening session after the bill has already been committed to paper and the GOP has had more than seven years to “listen” and formulate a better healthcare plan than the Affordable Care Act.
I’ve written in this space about Rep. Tim Leonard (R-Evergreen) before. He is one of the most radical members of the Colorado State Legislature. Well, he’s at it again, this time posting this video with a cryptic warning to know the cost/benefit trade-off regarding vaccinating children.
I’m continually astounded by the blatant hypocrisy that Republicans engage in, but even for the vice chairman of the Colorado GOP, who has a long track record of abandoning his so called “principles”, this is a stunning lack of self-awareness:
The forum for Colorado GOP state chair candidates Jeff Hays and George Athanasopoulos at the JeffCo Republican Women’s group forum on March 7 was mostly a wonk-fest, with the candidates each touting their plans to revitalize the Colorado GOP, but there were a few moments when the gloves came off that provided some excitement. The first was when George Athanasopoulos accused Jeff Hays of violating rules by endorsing Joel Miller—an accusation dismissed as a “fraud” by Hays.
Ran across this post by Raymond Garcia, the 2016 GOP candidate for Colorado State House District 1. Setting aside the laughable claim that “liberals…are having a harder and harder time trying to find something bad about President Trump,” let’s see if we can get to the bottom of the claims of this headline.
I screen-capped a few FeverSwamp™ posts to illustrate what is quickly becoming apparent: Nearly everyone hates Paul Ryan and the GOP’s healthcare proposal.
